During a chat with Egyptian media outfit OnTime Sports, the two-time English Premier League winner was quizzed about a potential move to the Egyptian top-flight. “Playing in the Egyptian Premier League? Why not?” said Mikel as reported by Kingfut.Advertisement “I am a professional footballer and everything is possible.

Defender Chris Smalling is hoping Manchester United can make Liverpool pay for their midweek disappointment at Newcastle. Press Association United head for Anfield on Sunday having slipped to sixth place in the Barclays Premier League table as a result of Tuesday night’s 3-3 draw at St James’ Park. However, Smalling is hoping they can take out their frustration on Jurgen Klopp’s men by completing a double following their 3-1 victory over their rivals at Old Trafford in September. The 26-year-old was astonished to see referee Mike Dean, who had earlier awarded United a penalty for handball against Chancel Mbemba, point to the spot after allowing a series of other tussles go. Smalling said: “We were both jostling for positions throughout the game. The referee said we were both at it, so he didn’t give anything and I think there needs to be that consistency with the decisions. “You can see my shirt was clearly pulled as well, so it’s just about consistency. If you’re going to give them, fair enough, but you need to be giving them on a regular basis.” He told MUTV: “In recent times, we’ve done very well against them – obviously this year at Old Trafford and last season we’ve got very good results, so we’re very confident of going there and causing them a problem.” Smalling and his team-mates headed back across the Pennines on Tuesday fuming after surrendering 2-0 and 3-2 leads against the relegation-threatened Magpies on a night when they placated their critics with some enterprising football, but were unable to match it with defensive resilience. First-half goals from Wayne Rooney and Jesse Lingard put them in charge and after Georginio Wijnaldum and Aleksandar Mitrovic had cancelled out their advantage, Rooney struck again 11 minutes from time. But their joy was short-lived as full-back Paul Dummett lashed home a 90th-minute equaliser to ensure the spoils were shared. Smalling said: “If you came into the changing rooms after the match, it was like we’d lost the game. We put ourselves in such a good position and we could have finished it a little bit earlier, but even when we did so well to get to 3-2, we need to hold on and be a bit stronger. “We got that early goal which settled us down and we could have scored more, but it’s about finding that balance so we’re not giving away these sloppy goals just before half-time and just before the final whistle. “They’re key times in the game and we need to make sure we’re switched on.” It proved an eventful evening on Tyneside for Smalling, who unwittingly deflected Dummett’s strike past helpless keeper David de Gea after conceding the penalty from which Mitrovic made it 2-2 following a wrestling match with the Serbia international.
The Badgers will take on the Mizzou Tigers Friday at 8 p.m. with ESPN televising the match-up between the SEC and the Big Ten. For the sixth time in 20 years, the University of Wisconsin women’s softball team has earned a spot in the 2017 NCAA women’s College World Series.The Badgers (33-15, 11-11 Big Ten) were awarded one of the non-ranked spots by the NCAA committee this year and were one of five Big Ten teams invited to participate in this year’s tournament. The University of Minnesota, the University of Michigan, Ohio State University and the University of Illinois are among some of the teams hoping to hoist that national trophy for the Big Ten.This year’s selection, specifically the tournament locations, sparked quite a bit of controversy within the Big Ten. Minnesota, who is currently 54-3 this season, was not only un-ranked, but was also not allowed to host part of the tournament in Minneapolis.Softball: Sky is limit for Badger squad with wealth of experienceWhen all was said and done at the end of the 2016 season, the University of Wisconsin softball team found Read…The top seed at the 2017 NCAA tournament is the University of Florida, who currently has a 50-6 record for their season. Why Minnesota is not only un-ranked, but not even ranked higher than a school with a worse record than them continues to be a mystery to all Big Ten teams.This shows just some of the struggles that Big Ten softball has been going through for years. With Southeastern Conference and Pacific-12 teams constantly taking top-place rankings, Big Ten teams are usually seen as second-rate teams in comparison.Wisconsin softball: The classic underdog storyWisconsin walks into this tournament as the underdogs, both within their conference and within the tournament — but that’s just how the Badgers like to be seen. Senior catcher Chloe Miller plans on using the Badgers current underdog status to create waves at the tournament and to promote Big Ten softball as a whole.Softball: Chloe Miller adds draft pick to season resumeJust to add to the excitement of a University of Wisconsin softball team fighting for a postseason spot in the Read…“[Wisconsin] and the other four Big Ten teams that made it are banded together and we’re going out there to mess up some people’s plans and prove people wrong,” Miller said. “Being able to do that against [the University of Missouri] on primetime slot on ESPN, Friday night at 8 o’clock is pretty cool.”Wisconsin heads up to Oregon Friday to take part in the Eugene Regional round, hosted by the University of Oregon. If UW manages to take Mizzou, they will then continue on to yet another tough challenge, trying to defeat Oregon at home.UW faces challenges with OregonOregon is currently on a roll, with a 10-game winning streak and a 47-6 record so far this season. The Ducks are the No. 3 seed overall in this year’s tournament and have allowed a grand total of four runs in their last six games played.In comparison, Oregon managed to collect a grand total of 42 runs from their last six games played.Wisconsin head coach Yvette Healy knows this tournament is challenging, but she also knows that she is bringing a team that has managed to do demonstrably better on the road than they have at home. Healy and the Badgers only managed to get a grand total of three wins at home this year, ending with a 3-9 record at Goodman, but have a 14-3 record for away games and a 16-3 record for neutral games.Softball: Badgers improve on best start in program historyThe University of Wisconsin softball team continued rolling in this young season, improving to 12-2 on the year after the Read…“We play great on the road,” Healy said. “No one likes me saying this, but we’ve been to that regional twice and we’ve managed to put up four wins, so we’ve got more wins at Oregon’s field than we had at Goodman this year. That’s a crazy statistic, but it’s still true so I’m riding on that — that it feels great so let’s go for our fifth win at that stadium.”
