The first was Ighalo’s maiden goal in the 5-0 bashing of Club Brugge in the Europa League Round of 32-second leg, while the second came in United’s 3-0 FA Cup fifth-round win at Derby County. This led to Ighalo declaring his fondness for the Spaniard on social media. “Find you a Boss that loves you the way Juan Mata loves me,” Ighalo posted on Twitter a day before Manchester United took on LASK in the Europa League Round of 16. Odion Ighalo’s arrival on loan from Shanghai Shenhua has seen him hit the ground running which has aided Manchester United’s progress in the Europa League and FA Cup, thanks partly to his growing bond with Juan Mata. Loading… Though it was Bruno Fernandes that assisted Ighalo this time, Mata went on Twitter to respond back to Ighalo’s earlier tweet. “Find someone that loves you the way Odion Ighalo loves me,” Mata tweeted after the game. Also speaking to MUTV after the match, Mata was happy with Ighalo and Fernandes’ presence in the team. “It’s great to have Bruno in the team, and also Odion who is scoring in almost every single game that he plays,” the former Chelsea playmaker said. “They’re great guys, and we’re very happy now with them in the team.” Manchester United were supposed to tackle Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League before hosting LASK in the Europa League return leg at Old Trafford next week.

Sevilla are third on 52.Barca’s Lionel Messi went into the match on 699 career goals but failed to get his 700th for club and country, coming closest with a first-half free kick, which was headed off the line.Sergio Reguilon had a glorious chance to snatch a winner in added time when the ball fell into his path from close range, but he hit it into the ground and Barca keeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen made a comfortable save for the reigning champions.Barca striker Luis Suarez made his first start since returning from knee surgery in an attacking trio alongside Messi and Martin Braithwaite as Antoine Griezmann dropped to the bench and the Catalans freely moved the ball around in the first half.Messi had two free-kick attempts while ex-Sevilla midfielder Ivan Rakitic narrowly missed the target from inside the area. There was tension just before halftime when Messi pushed Sevilla’s Diego Carlos to the ground after he had fouled Suarez and while the Argentine escaped without a booking for the incident, after which Sergio Busquets was shown a yellow card.Sevilla re-grouped after the break and had the better chances, with Lucas Ocampos smashing a shot against Ter Stegen, who also thwarted former Barca forward Munir El Haddadi.Suarez had the visitors’ best chance after the interval but failed to keep his stinging shot under the bar while Ter Stegen came up to contest a corner in added time, underlining Barca’s desperation to win the game and boost their title chances.Tags: BarcelonaCOVID-19La LigaLionel MessiReal MadridSEVILLA

Share UK gambling adopts toughest online advertising code to protect underage audiences August 27, 2020 Eaton Gate Gaming, the parent company of Kwiff, has come under fire from the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), after an advert for the gambling operator was adjudged to have encouraged irresponsible gambling.The ad in question began with the text “PLAYERS OF THE SEASON,” before going on to portray a number of customers discussing their experiences whilst using kwiff.One complainant challenged “whether the ad portrayed, condoned or encouraged gambling behaviour that was socially irresponsible or could lead to financial, social or emotional harm”.Responding, Eaton Gate Gaming said “the ad was intended to show how real customers felt and experienced the app, and it did not present gambling in any way that could be considered irresponsible”.They also stated that of all the responses they received, none of which were from women, were selected from an accurate representation of their typical customer base, with half of the selected customers above the age 47, and the other half aged between 25 and 28 years old.Before going on to state that “the selected customers were first asked questions about themselves, and then questions about their experience in using the app, and their response to those questions were filmed,” with Kwiff insistent that customers had not been coached and the testimonials were not scripted.Upholding the complaint, the ASA noted that “each of the customers featured in the ad were men and that some appeared to be in their late 20s or early 30s. We understood that younger men (aged 18–34) were at heightened risk of irresponsible gambling behaviour, and we considered that ads which appealed to that audience … needed to take particular care in their messaging”.Adding “We considered that the overall impression of the ad condoned and encouraged betting in ways that could be financially, socially and emotionally harmful, by associating it with problem gambling, and we concluded that the ad was irresponsible”.The ad must not appear again in the form, with Kwiff told to ensure in future that they did not condone or encourage betting in ways that could be financially, socially or emotionally harmful.The ASA also sanctioned William Hill Vegas, which saw an advert appear within the app New MarioKart 8 Trick, accompanied by the text “William Hill Vegas … All Online Vegas Games 200% Up To £200 Bonus William Hill Vegas” and an install button.One complainant challenged “whether the ad was appropriately targeted as it was seen while using an app ‘New MarioKart 8 Trick’ which they believed was aimed at children”.Responding, the firm first pointed to its usage of the Universal App Campaign product from Google, which results in Google automatically serving the ad across its portfolio of inventory – which were limited to serve only individuals who specified their ages as 18+.Furthemore, WHG International, trading as William Hill Vegas, stated it couldn’t affect sharing of devices between adults and children, and that last year Nintendo Switch reported 86 per cent of its players were adults, and that Mario Kart was one of its most popular titles.Considering its judgement, the ASA highlights the PEGI rating of three for New MarioKart 8 Trick, in addition to stating William Hill Vegas should’ve used some additional interest based factors to reduce the likelihood of under-18s seeing the ad.Concluding that the ad had been inappropriately targeted, the ASA states that it “must not be used again without further, specific targeting to minimise the likelihood of under-18s being exposed to it.“We told William Hill Vegas to ensure that their ads were appropriately targeted in future.”A similar complaint was also levelled at Greentube Alderney Ltd, trading as Bell Fruit Casino, with one individual complaining that an advert for its gambling app was seen by their seven year old son in the Dude Perfect 2 app.Greentube Alderney also pointed its usage of the Google network and the Universal App Campaign product, whilst also stating that following their own internal investigation “they believed that they had taken all steps to ensure that their ads were strictly served to users over the age of 18”.Considering the evidence, the ASA published a lengthy assessment, and upheld the complaint, ruling that the ad must not be used again without further, specific targeting to minimise the likelihood of under-18s being exposed to it, whilst Greentube Alderney were reminded to ensure that their future ads were appropriately targeted.

The Ghana Football Association have revealed to Citi Sports that there has been no contact made with the family of Arsenal prospect Eddie Nketiah.Social media went into a frenzy when the GFA’s official twitter handle congratulated the youngster for winning the FA Cup with Arsenal.Arsenal came from behind to defeat Chelsea 2 – 1 to win their 14th FA Cup at Wembley.The move by the FA was interpreted as an attempt to lure the British born Nketiah who has Ghanaian parents to play for Ghana.Clarifying the matter, Communications Director for the GFA Henry Asante Twum says the tweet was merely meant to bring awareness from which a future relationship can be built.“It is not far-fetched to strategically congratulate him to let him know that eyes are watching.“Contacting his family has not come up yet.“When the process begins the media will be updated.“That move cannot be made without the input of technical handlers.“Where we sit nothing of the sort has come to our table.” he disclosed to Citi Sports.The 21 year old has already represented England at the U – 21 level but is yet to feature for the senior national side making him eligible to switch and represent Ghana if he so wishes.
