latest Lucknow News download Indian Express App More Related NewsLeicester City manager Claudio Ranieri said he was still refusing to look at the Premier League table despite his team re-establishing a five-point lead by beating Newcastle United 1-0 Shinji Okazaki’s stunning 25th-minute overhead bicycle kick gave Leicester a hard-earned 1-0 win at the King Power Stadium on Monday and left them needing 20 points from their final eight games to complete one of the most improbable title triumphs in the history of European football But while teams like Arsenal and Manchester City continue to flounder in their slipstream Ranieri was insistent that neither he nor his players are allowing themselves to think about the title File photo of Leicester City’s manager Claudio Ranieri AFP "I don’t look at the table I look at the next match — Crystal Palace" he told his post-match press conference "It’s difficult We want to enjoy we want to continue Of course our fans are dreaming are so proud of us We must continue" He added: "Never we speak about the title Every time we speak about our performance how we enjoy the football and helping our team-mates I’m very proud when I say everyone helps each other" Okazaki’s goal a textbook overhead volley from Jamie Vardy’s knock-down took the Japan striker’s tally to six goals for the campaign but Ranieri made a point of praising his all-round contribution "I’m not pleased now because he scored a goal — I’m so pleased with Shinji because he’s part of the team and he works so hard every time" he said "He scored a goal tonight (Monday) but Shinji has made a fantastic job during all the season It was a good goal a fantastic goal" Leicester’s last three wins against Norwich City Watford and Newcastle have all come by a 1-0 scoreline and Ranieri was heartened by the gritty attitude shown by his players "I know very well we played better maybe against Aston Villa or West Bromwich but we drew both these matches" he said "We played well and we achieved just one point We played our match (against Newcastle) a tough match very concentrated and we won — three points "At this point of the season the points are important not how you play" ‘Use their brains’ With new manager Rafael Benitez furiously orchestrating his charges from the edge of his technical area Newcastle produced an improved display and Ranieri said that he had not been surprised by their tenacity "I was sure it would be this kind of match" said the Italian who like Benitez counts Napoli Valencia Chelsea and Inter Milan among his former clubs "Their players showed Rafa their attitude and the Newcastle players are very good I am sure that they will be safe" It was a fourth successive loss for Newcastle but Benitez underlined the "positives" from his side’s battling display which he identified as their "passion" and "commitment" He now faces a pivotal pair of fixtures against fellow strugglers with Sunday’s derby at home to Sunderland followed by a trip to Norwich City and he urged the supporters to throw their weight behind the team "We know our next game against Sunderland is a derby and it will be important for everyone but I have a feeling the fans are really good and they are the number 12 for the next game" said the former Liverpool manager who replaced the sacked Steve McClaren on Friday "We have plenty of things to do and they need to rest and work hard I like the people the staff the fans and everyone is behind the club "Everything is positive but now we have to give them what they want on the pitch" He added: "The players have to play without anxiety because then they will make more mistakes "They have to play with great commitment like today but they have to use their brains and try and play good football" AFP By: AP | Clairefontaine | Updated: June 30 2016 12:12 pm In the group game against Albania in Marseille the vocal frustration was evident until Antoine Griezmann’s 90th-minute goal (AP

relationship with their fans Relations are better but still precarious Last weekend in Lyon the players were jeered off at halftime against Ireland when trailing 1-0 In the group game against Albania in Marseille the vocal frustration was evident until Antoine Griezmann’s 90th-minute goal Any frayed nerves among the French contingent at the Stade de France this Sunday will surely contrast with those of Iceland’s devoted fans who will be shouting their traditional Viking chant and cranking up the pressure on France’s players Ideally for France a quick goal or two would help settle nerves That France has failed to score in the first half in this tournament may not be just a coincidence Players start games nervously as if trying to avoid mistakes Chances are snatched at the body language is tense and cagey the fans rarely indulgent “I think we should be a bit more supportive” France fan Ahmed Kchikech told The Associated Press after a public team training session on Wednesday “We’re fed up with things only happening in the second half … French fans are like this We don’t forgive (the players) the slightest mistake” Kchikech said he feels envious at the way Ireland and Iceland supported their teams at this tournament with prolonged chants and heart-warming songs “It’s magnificent … but that’s not the French way” he said Over the years games have often mapped out the same way at the national stadium A flag-waving rendition of La Marseillaise _ the national anthem _ followed by some hearty early encouragement and then a tense watchful silence If France fails to

Champia missed his Rio chances as his World ranking is less when compared to Atanu Das (Source: PTI) Top News Former Olympian and chief coach Limba Ram said that the Archery Association of India (AAI) has done ‘grave injustice’ to Mangal Singh Champia who grabbed an individual Olympic quota but was pipped by young Atanu Das to make the team to Rio “Mangal deserved to have gone to Rio He earned you the quota It’s grave injustice to him” Limba who is now a sports officer in Rajasthan Government told PTI from Dungarpur “I feel sad for him He did not have any support and missed out on Olympics His experience would have come handy” Mangal had earned the individual quota in the World Championship in Copenhagen last year but the AAI picks the one who’s ahead in current form After the trio of Champia and Jayanta Talukdar failed to earn a team berth at the World Cup Stage III in Antalya the AAI in its trial in SAI Bengaluru picked the 24-year-old Kolkata lad for his maiden Olympics Das had a bonus point advantage having made the semifinals in the World Cup in Antalya as he easily made the cut But Limba said the rule can be altered if they want a particular archer “I’m sure if it was someone else they would not have conducted a trial” he said about the Jharkhand archer who is a four-time World Cup gold medalist in team events Incidentally on current form 13th ranked Talukdar is the best among the Indian men’s trio as Atanu is 22nd while Mangal has a poor ranking of 33 “You always go through ups and down You should always back your athlete if he’s not doing well Mangal also needed some support He would have peaked at the right time” But an AAI official said that the selection process was fair enough and Das was the deserving candidate “Das is the best Indian male archer
