EURO 2020 QUALIFIERSPortugal’s Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo is ready to play in their Euro 2020 qualifiers against Lithuania and Luxembourg despite concerns over his fitness which came to the fore last weekend, coach Fernando Santos said on Wednesday.Ronaldo was substituted in the 55th minute of Juventus’ win over AC Milan in Serie A on Sunday, the earliest he has been taken off by the Italian champions, and he was visibly furious with coach Maurizio Sarri as he stormed down the tunnel. Ronaldo…ready to risk injury for Portugal Sarri said after the game that Ronaldo has been managing a knee problem for the last month without missing matches and has also been dealing with thigh and calf muscle problems.However, Santos said there was no issue with the country’s most capped player and record scorer, who has scored 95 international goals and could reach a century in Portugal’s Group B games against Lithuania and Luxemburg.Portugal will seal a place at Euro 2020 if they beat Lithuania and Serbia fail to beat Luxembourg.“If he wasn’t fit we wouldn’t have called him up. Everyone likes to talk and speculate about Cristiano Ronaldo because he is the best player in the world,” he told a news conference ahead of Thursday’s game at home to Lithuania.“If it was any other player there would be no such fuss. He is fit and he’s going to play.”Santos, who led Portugal to glory at Euro 2016, became more irritated as he was further pressed about the Juve forward, declaring: “This conference is not about Cristiano Ronaldo, it’s about Portugal and the game with Lithuania.”EURO 2020(Thursday)Czech v KosovoEngland v MontenegroPortugal v LithuaniaSerbia v LuxembourgTurkey v IcelandAlbania v AndorraFrance v MoldovaShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram

4 Oct 2017 South West pair end senior season with a hat trick Tags: Brenda King Foursomes, competitions, Senior The South West pair of Jo Shorrocks and Amanda Mayne have completed a hat trick of consecutive wins in England Golf’s end-of-season senior tournament.They won the popular Brenda King Foursomes by seven shots at Harrogate Golf Club, Yorkshire, where they scored two-over 74 and 79, with the second round played in continuous rain.“We’re so pleased to win for the third time,” said Mayne, a former England senior international from Saltford, Somerset.They’ve equalled the record of their good friends, Claire Dowling and Tracy Atkin, who won from 2012-14. “We’ll give them a bit of banter,” said Shorrocks, from Bigbury, Devon.Their continued success seems to be helping to raise the profile of senior women’s golf in the South-West, reports Shorrocks. Devon has introduced a senior women’s championship this year and another pair, from Royal North Devon, also made the long trip north for the Brenda King tournament.Shorrocks and Mayne made their trademark slow start to the event and were three over par after playing two holes of the first round. But they came straight back with two birdies and after returning 74 they were five shots clear of the field.“Today conditions were pretty dreadful, it tipped down all day, and we just wanted to keep as steady as possible and hope no-one else would play a blinder,” said Shorrocks.Second place, on countback, went to Janet Melville (Royal Birkdale, Lancashire) and Jo Ashmore (Barnham Broom, Norfolk), who have both represented England at senior level. Third were Kate Evans (Frilford Heath, Oxfordshire) and Sandy Catford (Prince’s, Kent).
