Portugal has Pepe back for the final play-offs
3.15 pm: The Portuguese football team has defender Pepe back for the final of the play-offs for a World Cup ticket. The 39-year-old FC Porto defender was missing against Turkey last week, because he had tested positive for the corona virus. Without Pepe, Portugal won 3-1 against the Turks in Porto.
The 123-time international joined the training field on Sunday. “The king is back, Pepe is back, watch out!” Cristiano Ronaldo shouted at the start of the training. Portugal will compete with North Macedonia on Tuesday for a place in the World Cup. North Macedonia caused a surprise in Palermo on Thursday by beating European champions Italy 1-0 in the semi-finals of the play-offs.
“We will not lie: we all expected to play against Italy,” said midfielder João Moutinho. “But names, numbers and statistics mean nothing. Any country at this level can win. North Macedonia will also do everything it can to beat us on Tuesday.”
Football players Ajax miss the chance of leading position against PSV
2.50 pm: The football players of Ajax have failed to take back the lead in the Women’s Eredivisie from FC Twente. The team of trainer Danny Schenkel had to settle for 0-0 against PSV at De Toekomst in Amsterdam. Ajax therefore came to 42 points, the same as Twente, which has a considerably better goal difference. PSV is in fourth place with 30 points and is not participating in the title fight.
Earlier this season, the Amsterdam soccer players won 5-1 against PSV in front of their own audience. At the end of last month, Ajax triumphed in Eindhoven with 2-1. Chasity Grant had the greatest chance in the final phase, but the Ajax attacker shot the inside of the post. On the other hand, Naomi Pattiwael failed to take advantage of the space that Ajax gave away.
English referee at practice match between Orange and Germany
2:24 PM: The practice match between the Dutch national team and Germany will be led by Craig Pawson on Tuesday. The 43-year-old Englishman, who has been a referee of international competitions since 2015, has never whistled a duel for Orange before.
It will be the 45th time that the Netherlands and Germany will face each other. Of the previous 44 duels, the Germans won sixteen, sixteen ended undecided and the Orange won twelve.
The last meeting between the two countries was in September 2019. The Dutch national team was 4-2 too strong in the European Championship qualifying in Hamburg.
Fourteenth starting place for Daniel Ricciardo after grid penalty
2:09 p.m.: Formula 1 driver Daniel Ricciardo is penalized backwards on the grid for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. The Australian from McLaren hindered Frenchman Esteban Ocon (Alpine) in Saturday’s qualifying. The stewards decided to give him a grid penalty.
Ricciardo had qualified twelfth. In principle, he should be three places back, but because Mick Schumacher (fourteenth in qualifying) cannot race in Jeddah due to a serious crash, the Australian is in fourteenth place on the grid. He has seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton diagonally behind him in fifteenth place.
Max Verstappen starts the second GP of the season from fourth place. His Mexican teammate Sergio Pérez is on pole position in the Red Bull at 7 p.m.
Poels dismounts during the final stage of the Tour of Catalonia
12.37 pm: Cyclist Wout Poels was unable to finish the Tour of Catalonia due to stomach problems. The 34-year-old Limburger, who was in sixth place in the general classification, got off early in the final stage. According to his Bahrain-Victorious team, Poels has stomach problems.
The climber was 1 minute and 10 seconds behind Colombian classification leader Sergio Higuita after six stages. The final stage covers almost 140 kilometers, with start and finish in Barcelona. The riders have to climb the Montjuïc six times in the final phase.
Poels won the Spanish stage race Ruta del Sol last month. In Paris-Nice he finished in fifteenth place.
Italian cyclist Colbrelli back home after heart rhythm disorder
12.16 pm: Italian cyclist Sonny Colbrelli is back at home. The European champion and most recent winner of Paris-Roubaix collapsed on Monday after the first stage of the Tour of Catalonia, in which he finished second behind Australian Michael Matthews. Colbrelli had to be resuscitated and was then hospitalized in Girona.
The 31-year-old Bahrain-Victorious rider underwent all kinds of tests in hospital to find out where his heart problems come from. Colbrelli was found to have had a heart rhythm disorder. The Italian received permission from doctors on Saturday to return to Italy. Colbrelli will be further investigated there in the coming days.
“Everyone from Bahrain-Victorious wishes Sonny a speedy recovery, surrounded by the love of his family,” the team said in a statement on Sunday. Colbrelli, second in Omloop Het Nieuwsblad last month, recently dropped out in Paris-Nice due to bronchitis and for that reason also skipped Milan-Sanremo.
Tony Martin to auction Olympic cycling medal for Ukraine
10:40 am Former German cyclist Tony Martin is selling the Olympic medal he won in the time trial in 2012 and is donating the proceeds to victims of the war in Ukraine. The 36-year-old German hopes that his silver medal at the London Games will yield around 20,000 euros. “That would be a nice result,” said Martin in Bild am Sonntag.
“If I can tell my grandchildren that I have helped people with this medal, it means a lot more to me than showing them the original. No one can take my memories away from me,” said Martin, who works as a tutor at a private school in Switzerland and has taken in 43 refugees there. “By auctioning this medal, I can help them even more.”
The four-time world time trial champion took Olympic silver in London behind Britain’s Bradley Wiggins. He is now auctioning the original medal, including the slightly damaged box, for the United Charity organization, which provides aid to children in need in Ukraine.
The online auction lasts for two weeks. The starting amount is 5000 euros. Martin decided last year to end his cycling career, despite a permanent contract with the Dutch team Jumbo-Visma. The German no longer wanted to continue, because he was concerned about safety in the sport. Martin crashed in the Tour de France because a spectator with a sign in her hands got in the way.
Miami Heat lose form and lead in NBA
09:56 o’clock The Miami Heat basketball players have had to give up the lead in the east of the NBA to the Philadelphia 76ers. The team from Miami suffered its fourth loss in a row against the Brooklyn Nets: 95-110. “We are not panicking, but we do have something to solve,” said veteran Kyle Lowry about the form of his team, with the playoffs approaching.
Without coach Erik Spoelstra, who was missing on the bench due to family circumstances, the Miami Heat even faced a 37-point deficit in front of its own audience. Kevin Durant was the top scorer for the Nets with 23 points. The Heat’s players all struggled to score. Bam Adebayo was the most productive with 14 points.
The Miami Heat dropped to second in the east with 47 wins versus 28 losses. The Philadelphia 76ers took the top spot with 46 wins against 27 losses. NBA champion Milwaukee Bucks, like the Heat, could have won 47 wins, but the defending champion lost 127-102 to Memphis Grizzlies despite 30 points to Giannis Antetokounmpo. That marked the 28th loss for the Bucks.
