Van Wolfswinkel eyeing World Cup spot

by ,

first_imgNorwich’s record signing Ricky van Wolfswinkel hopes an impressive debut season in the Barclays Premier League can end with a place in Holland’s World Cup squad. He added: “The Dutch squad is something extra, now I need to develop myself here. To score goals will be important for the team, then the national team will come later. “The Portuguese League is not on the TV in Holland, the Premier League is every day, so more people see you, and if you are in the news performing well, then the (Holland) coaches will see you also.” Norwich struggled to find the net over the second half of last season – before eventually scoring four against West Brom in their penultimate match and then three in the win at Manchester City on the final day. Those victories saw them pull clear of the relegation zone and finish a creditable 11th. Van Wolfswinkel feels his added firepower can make sure Chris Hughton’s men, who went through an unbeaten 10-match run from the end of October, can start to look up the table. “I am confident of scoring goals. That is part and parcel of my job, but the most important thing for me is I am a team player,” he said. “If I play well then I expect to score goals and I want to do both. These are my qualities that I want to show. I know they say the Portuguese league is more technical and the English is more physical, so I might have to make a few changes. “It is normal, I had the same when I first left Holland for Portugal. This will be different, but I am not the type of player who needs much time to develop.” The 24-year-old officially completed an £8.5million switch from Sporting Lisbon on Monday and will join up with his new team-mates later this week ahead of a pre-season tour to the west coast of the United States. Van Wolfswinkel earned his second cap for the senior Dutch side in their friendly against Indonesia in June, and feels the switch to England can only help boost his international profile. “It would be great to be there (at the World Cup), for me and also for the club, for Norwich to have their players in the national teams,” Van Wolfswinkel said at his unveiling at Carrow Road. “For me, it is of course a decision to go to Norwich for the future, to be there for the World Cup, but my main focus is Norwich.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Fast Reaction: 3 quick observations from Syracuse’s comeback win over Virginia Tech

by ,

first_img Published on February 3, 2015 at 11:24 pm Syracuse (15-7, 6-3 Atlantic Coast) came back to beat Virginia Tech (9-13, 1-8), 72-70, in the Carrier Dome on Tuesday night, and here are three quick takeaways from the season-saving win.1. Pressed for timeDown as many as 13 points with over six minutes to play, Syracuse jumped into a full-court press that brought it roaring back into the game. SU forward Michael Gbinije was particularly instrumental in the comeback, harassing VT’s guards in the backcourt and kickstarting a sped-up game that played into the Orange’s hand.It was also Gbinije who drove into the middle of the Hokies’ defense and drew a foul with the game winding down and hit two free throws to tie the game.Then, after Trevor Cooney forced Adam Smith to step backcourt, Gbinije won it with a short-corner layup to complete the six-minute comeback effort.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text2. Zoning out Whether it was operating in the high post or shooting the 3, Virginia Tech had no trouble bending — and often snapping — Syracuse’s 2-3 zone.Hokies guard Justin Bibbs was particularly effective in the high post throughout the game, hitting floater after floater and facilitating to his teammates on the wings. And after not shooting many 3s due to an extended zone in the first, Virginia Tech made its first six 3s of the second to build a sizable cushion late in the game.Up until the Orange pressed for most of the last five minutes, its patented zone was scrambling for Hokies and answers before its comeback efforts took flight.3. Missed opportunity Virginia Tech ran with a five-guard lineup for the last 5:18 of the first half and Syracuse was only able to build a meek four-point lead.The Hokies small lineup included no player over 6 feet, 5 inches, with guards Justin Bibbs and Ahmed Hill pretending to be a frontcourt. Six-foot-3 guard Malik Muller was guarding the 6-foot-9 Rakeem Christmas.But aside from an emphatic two-handed dunk, Christmas didn’t take advantage of the forward-less lineup and Virginia Tech continued to find success inside. In a game that stayed close from start to finish, the Orange missed a gift-wrapped opportunity to pull away. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
