Italy leaves it late to earn 1st competitive win in a year

By Andrew Dampf, Associated Press ROME (AP) — Italy is finally showing signs of emerging from its crisis, nearly a year after failing to qualify for the World Cup. Cristiano Biraghi's goal in stoppage time earned the Azzurri a much-needed 1-0 win in Poland on Sunday in the UEFA Nations League. Playing in Group 3 of League A, Poland became the first team to be relegated in the new European competition. Italy also hit the crossbar twice in the first half, first with Jorginho then with Lorenzo Insigne. Still, the match appeared headed for a scoreless draw until Biraghi slid in to redirect a corner inside the far post two minutes into injury time. "We dominated the game completely and should have scored earlier," Italy coach Roberto Mancini said. "A 0-0 would have been an unfair result. We played very well but we can still improve a lot. In football you only need time and hard work; magicians do not exist." It was the first national team goal for Biraghi, a full back at Fiorentina. Biraghi celebrated by making a No. 13 with his fingers, a dedication to former Fiorentina captain and Italy defender Davide Astori, who died from cardiac arrest in March. Astori wore the No. 13 shirt. "Astori is a part of me," Biraghi said. "I dedicate my goal to him because if I'm here it is only thanks to him and all the things he taught me when we played together." It was Italy's first competitive victory in more than a year, since beating Albania 1-0 in World Cup qualifying last October. It also ended a five-match winless streak in all competitions and gave Italy a slim chance to catch group leader Portugal. Portugal leads with six points, two ahead of Italy, while Poland is last with one. Italy hosts Portugal in its next and final match but then Portugal has another game at home against Poland. RUSSIA RISING World Cup quarterfinalist Russia needs only one more point to be promoted into League A following a 2-0 win over visiting Turkey in Sochi with goals in the Group 2 game from Roman Neustadter and substitute Denis Cheryshev. Turkey will be relegated from League B if it loses to Sweden on Nov. 17, while Russia can move up with a draw in Sweden three days later. GOALKEEPER ASSIST A long pass from goalkeeper Ariel Harush set up Israel's first goal by Tomer Hemed in a 2-0 win over visiting Albania in League C. Harush also made a series of saves before Israel got its second from Dia Seba. Israel is three points ahead of Scotland and Albania atop Group 1. Also in League C, Romania played the entire second half with 10 men and still drew 0-0 with Serbia. Serbia, which had captain Dusan Tadic miss a penalty, stayed atop Group 4, one point ahead of Montenegro, which won 4-1 in Lithuania. Romania is two points back. UNBEATEN KOSOVO Kosovo held on for a 1-1 draw in the Faeroe Islands to remain unbeaten atop Group 3 in League D. After Milot Rashica's early opener, Rene Joensen equalized after the break for the Faeroes. In the same group, Azerbaijan and Malta also played to a 1-1 draw, with Araz Abdullayev's second-half equalizer canceling out Rowen Muscat's opener for Malta......»»

The Commission on Human Rights reiterated on Saturday its call for the government to address human rights violations following the country's election to the United Nations Human Rights Council. "Earning a seat in the said Council, however, puts pressure on the Philippine government to address numerous allegations of human rights violations, starting with the growing cases of extrajudicial killings purportedly linked to the government's campaign against illegal drugs," the commission said in a statement.

UAAP: Dave I. says his killer instinct was taught by coach Joe Silva

Dave Ildefonso scored 14 points to help National University get back on track in the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament. Six of those points came from two triples – triples that allowed Ildefonso to show some love to his former mentor who was now on the opposite side. “Nung warm-up pa lang, gumaganun na ako, sabi ko, barilan kami,” he told reporters while doing finger guns. He then continued, “Bago pa kasi mag-season, napag-usapan namin na barilan kami pag nakaka-shoot ako ng three-points.” Ildefonso was a key cog while Coach Joe was the shot-caller for Ateneo de Manila High School from Seasons 78 to 80. There, they won one championship together. And there, the championship attitude was established and reinforced inside Ildefonso. “Si Coach Joe, kahit tambak ng 20 o 30 o up siya ng 20 o 30, gusto niya pa ring makita sa players niya yung killer instinct. Yun yung lagi niyang sinasabi dati – killer instinct,” he shared. He then continued, “Tinuturo niya laging since gusto naming mag-champion, dapat umasta kaming mag-champion.” Indeed, the super rookie has just brought that attitude to the Bulldogs – making an immediate impact and taking the reins of leadership. Still, that didn’t change the fact that facing off against his mentor was uncharted territory. “It’s fun tapos siyempre, weird din,” he said. Whatever happens, though, one thing is certain – there will always be a bond between Ildefonso and Coach Joe. “Sabi nga rin ni Coach Jamike [Jarin], he was the enemy pero after the game, after everything, coach ko pa rin siya, friend ko pa rin siya, mentor ko pa rin siya,” he said. For his part, the now UE head coach could only agree. As he put it, “Wherever we are, whatever team we are in, we don’t forget each other.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Madrid sues newspaper that said it forced Ronaldo to settle

MADRID (AP) — Real Madrid says it has taken legal action against a Portuguese newspaper that reported the Spanish club forced Cristiano Ronaldo to settle with the woman who accused him of rape. Madrid says the information published by the Correio da Manha newspaper is "categorically false" and was printed in an effort to "seriously damage the image of this club." Madrid says it "has absolutely no knowledge of any of the information that the newspaper published with regard to the player Cristiano Ronaldo, and therefore the club was unable to take action on a matter of which it had no knowledge." The Correio da Manha published an article Wednesday saying that part of Ronaldo's defense will be to say that Real Madrid forced him to settle. It said Ronaldo was against settling and always declared his innocence. The newspaper said Thursday it stood by what it published and that everything that went into the article was properly checked. Kathryn Mayorga filed a lawsuit late last month in Nevada saying she was raped by Ronaldo in Las Vegas in 2009. Police have re-opened an investigation. The 33-year-old Ronaldo, who played nearly a decade with Real Madrid before joining Italian club Juventus in the offseason, has denied any wrongdoing......»»
