Sweden has a lot to be upset about after last-minute loss

By Tales Azzoni, Associated Press SOCHI, Russia (AP) — A last-minute goal. A non-called penalty. A disrespectful celebration. Sweden had a lot to be upset about when the final whistle blew on Saturday. The Swedes were within seconds of holding defending champion Germany to a draw, and moving into good position to advance to the round of 16 at the World Cup, when Toni Kroos scored deep into stoppage time to give Germany a 2-1 come-from-behind victory. "I'm sorry that we didn't get at least one point," Sweden coach Janne Andersson said. "But I'm not blaming anyone tactically or analyzing too much right now, there are so many emotions going around. This is probably the heaviest conclusion that I've experienced in my career." Kroos' goal from a set piece came in the fifth and final minute of injury time. The draw would have kept Sweden ahead of Germany in Group F and needing only a draw against Mexico in the last match. "It was just bad luck," Sweden forward John Guidetti said. "Now we need to try to find a way to win the last match. In a few days we play again and we have to win it. It's simple." Germany, which is tied with Sweden on points and goal difference, will play against South Korea in the final round. "We still have an excellent opportunity to qualify," Andersson said. "Now we have to clean up, tidy up after this game. We're going to do that." The Swedes were leading Germany at halftime thanks to Ola Toivonen's goal in the 32nd minute at Fisht Stadium. They felt they could have been ahead even earlier if the referee had called a penalty when Marcus Berg appeared to be fouled inside the area with a clear chance to score. There was no formal video review called for. "If we have the (VAR) system, it's very unfortunate that he (the referee) can feel so secure in the moment that he doesn't go and have a look at the situation," Andersson said. He and the Swedish players said they also couldn't understand why Germany decided to celebrate near their bench. "You shouldn't celebrate in front of our bench the way they did, that's disrespectful," Guidetti said. "You can celebrate with your own fans. Don't celebrate in front of our bench like that. That's why they apologized, because they knew they did something wrong." Andersson said he was "very annoyed" by seeing the Germany team "running in our direction and rubbing it in our faces by making gestures." "We fought hard for 95 minutes," he said. "And when the final whistle blows, you shake hands.".....»»

Landmark win as Djokovic reaches Queen s semis

LONDON (AP) — Novak Djokovic became the 10th man to register 800 victories since the Open Era began in 1968 when he beat France's Adrian Mannarino 7-5 6-1 on Friday to reach the Queen's Club semifinals. Djokovic, a 12-time Grand Slam champion, follows in the footsteps of Jimmy Connors (1,256), Roger Federer (1,156), Ivan Lendl (1,068), Guillermo Vilas (949), Rafael Nadal (903), John McEnroe (881), Andre Agassi (870), Ilie Nastase (846) and Stefan Edberg (801). "It's a great achievement," said the 31-year-old Serb. "I should be happy for it and proud of it. It's still the sport that I love with all my heart. I put in that heart every single day." Djokovic, through to the semifinals for only the second time since last year's Eastbourne International, next meets France's Jeremy Chardy after he defeated American Frances Tiafoe 6-4 6-4. Top-seeded Marin Cilic also advanced with a 7-6 (3) 6-2 win over 2010 champion Sam Querrey. Cilic now faces Nick Kyrgios, who eliminated defending champion Feliciano Lopez 7-6 (5), 7-6 (3). The Croatian player hit 10 aces and dropped only three points on his first serve against American Querrey. He didn't give him a break point chance, and broke twice. Kyrgios again served 32 aces against Lopez, as he did in beating Kyle Edmund on Thursday, matching his personal best......»»

‘Hereditary’: Brutal meditation on guilt and forgiveness

  Most horror flicks utilize formulaic scare tactics to surprise, startle and shock viewers, but the best ones, like John Krasinski's "A Quiet Place," Michael and Peter Spierig's "Winchester" and Sergio G. Sanchez's "Marrowbone," sustain the doom and gloom by building an atmosphere of disquieting dread and ominous foreboding long before the bogeyman goes in for the kill. Like the aforementioned films, Ari Aster's "Hereditary," a thoughtful but brutal meditation on guilt, culpability and forgiveness, is guaranteed to give viewers the heebie-jeebies as it creepily riffs on relatable themes that are anchored on the tragedy that befalls miniaturist Annie Graham (Toni Collette)...Keep on reading: ‘Hereditary’: Brutal meditation on guilt and forgiveness.....»»
