Zane Smith dominates Heart of America 200

Zane Smith is the only driver with multiple wins in the 2022 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. A dominating performance in Friday’s Heart of America 200 at Kansas Speedway means he now has a two-win advantage over everyone else with a victory. He led 108 of 134 laps in the race, with Corey Heim having the second most with just eighteen.

Heim won the opening stage after taking the lead from Smith, who in turn claimed the spot from pole winner John Hunter Nemechek, on lap 22. However, Heim’s hopes of winning came to an end when his engine started to randomly shut off, causing him to hit the wall and forcing a late pit stop.

Smith won Stage #2. While the first two segments ran caution-free, Niece Motorsports trucks were responsible for cautions in Stage #3 when Kris Wright spun on lap 92 while Dean Thompson did … Read the rest

Alan Shearer praises ‘sensational’ 23-year-old Liverpool star for his FA Cup final display

Alan Shearer has praised Trent Alexander-Arnold for his performance in yesterday’s FA Cup final victory over Chelsea.

The Academy product put in a superb display to ensure that at the age of just 23, he’s won every single major trophy possible at club level, and the Match of the Day pundit couldn’t help but applaud the scouser.

“I think Trent Alexander-Arnold was sensational today,” Shearer told BBC Sport (via HITC).

“Both defensively and some of his passing was outrageous. For him then to go and stick a penalty away as cool as he did, I thought he was fantastic,” he added.

Often criticsed for his defensive ability, the England international put in a solid showing and helped his side to yet another clean sheet – he also dispatched his penalty with great technique during the shootout

Arsenal’s superb potential XI if they seal double Premier League transfer raid this summer

Arsenal will surely have a busy summer this year, whether they finish in the top four or not.

The Gunners’ Champions League hopes were dealt a major blow after a surprise 3-0 defeat at the hands of rivals Tottenham in midweek, and it’s little surprise that they already seem to be working on strengthening their squad in the summer.

Let’s face it, if Arsenal do hold on and get that fourth spot, they’ll have over-achieved, with this squad not as good as the likes of Man Utd and Spurs on paper, while it’s a long way behind Chelsea, even if the gap between themselves and the team third in the table is now not that big in terms of points.

And if Mikel Arteta’s side bottle it late on and miss out on the top four again, that’ll be even more reason to make the changes required to ensure they’re … Read the rest

Barcelona director inquired about 22-year-old forward in meeting with Atletico CEO

Barcelona are increasingly closing in on the capture of Robert Lewandowski, who has confirmed his desire to leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season shortly after the clash against VfL Wolfsburg.

With many expecting Lewandowski to join Barcelona in the coming season, a recent report from Diario AS has offered a rather interesting update on the club’s pursuit of a new forward.

It appears Barcelona are strongly entertaining the possibility of signing Joao Felix in the coming summer. The Portuguese international was discussed in the recent meeting between Barça’s sporting director Mateu Alemany and Atletico Madrid CEO MiguelAngel Gil Marin.

While the initial topic of the meeting was believed to be the sale of Antoine Griezmann, it appears Alemany had used the opportunity to bring up the topic of Felix.

The Portuguese international has been a top target for Barcelona for quite a while now. His technical brilliance, … Read the rest

Will Power wins sixth IMS RC pole with GMR Grand Prix qualifying run

Will Power winning the pole at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course is like grass being green. While much of the hype for Friday’s NTT IndyCar Series qualifying for the GMR Grand Prix revolved around Conor Daly and Callum Ilott‘s impressive runs, Power walked away with his sixth pole on the road course.

Power’s time of 1:09.76 topped Álex Palou‘s 1:09.80. He previously won the IMS Road Course pole in 2015, 2017, 2018, and two of the three races in 2020, while he has five total IndyCar victories on the layout including the August date in 2021.

Palou was the lone non-Chevrolet driver in the Fast Six, a group that surprisingly contained Indiana native Daly. Daly qualified fourth behind the two mentioned and Josef Newgarden for his best run of the season and tied 2020 at Mid-Ohio for his strongest career road course qualifying effort. It is also … Read the rest

European heavyweights have ‘contacted’ Sadio Mane’s agent to potentially replace 34-goal hitman – Christian Falk

Christian Falk has now confirmed that Bayern Munich have contacted Sadio Mane’s entourage after Robert Lewandowski confirmed he would not extend his stay in Bavaria.

This comes courtesy of a tweet from the Bundesliga expert, with the German top-flight champions perhaps hoping to take advantage of the short remaining length of the Senegalese international’s contract.

Along with Bobby Firmino and Mo Salah, the former Southampton ace is set to remain at Anfield until the summer of 2023 (the same expiration date of the Poland international’s contract), though Anfield bosses are reportedly keen on holding on to the winger beyond that point.

Man United’s season summed up after training ground bust up

Two senior Manchester United players were involved in an alleged training ground bust-up this week which sort of sums up the season for the Red Devils. 

According to an article ran by Manchester Evening News, an incident took place towards the end of a Man United training session at Carrington on Thursday in which the two unnamed players were set to have clashed with each other, the day United returned to training following a four-day break.

This brought the training session to a premature end and if the players are important for United’s future, this is yet another headache for incoming manager Erik ten Hag to have to deal with.

The Ajax boss will take over from Ralf Rangnick at the start of next season and is tasked with turning  Man United’s fortunes around as the club is miles behind Man City and Liverpool in the English football pecking order.… Read the rest

Barcelona offered the chance to sign Portuguese left-back for €10 million

Barcelona are on the search for a new left-back heading into the new season as they seek a cover and a long-term replacement for Jordi Alba.

The veteran has had to play the entire season without a natural cover and at 33, he will soon be entering the final phase of his career. So, it is important for Barça to start laying down the succession plan for him or at least bring a player as a backup to rotate the veteran regularly.

Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso has been a top target for the Blaugrana in this regard. But, according to Mundo Deportivo, a new option may have surfaced on the table for Barcelona as they have been offered the services of Borussia Dortmund left-back Raphael Guerreiro.

The 28-year-old is set to enter the final year of his contract with the Black and Yellows this summer and is keen on … Read the rest
