Alexandra Popp had just scored a go-ahead goal against Nigeria in her 100th international appearance when Japanese referee Yoshimi Yamashita signalled for a video review to determine whether a German teammate, Svenja Huth, who was in an offside position, had obstructed the view of goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie.“I was a bit irritated to be honest,” the German captain said through a translator.Popp’s goal stood, and a few minutes later, the match was stopped for another video review, this time to determine whether Germany’s Lina Magull had been fouled in the penalty area by Evelyn Nwabuoko. Having seen the stud marks on her teammate’s leg, Popp was pleased that the referee took a look and awarded a penalty kick.“Otherwise, I would have asked myself why we were using this technology,” Popp said, “so it was quite obvious in the pictures.”Germany advanced to the Women’s World Cup quarterfinals for the eighth straight time, beating African champion Nigeria 3-0 yesterday in Grenoble, France.Nigeria coach Thomas Dennerby endorsed VAR but said it caused disruptions.“Football is also a game with a rhythm, and if you break the rhythm, sometimes that is not good,” he said. “It’s good for the game, but I don’t think anybody really has the final solution for VAR yet.”Popp scored in the 20th minute. Sara Däbritz made it 2-0 in the 27th with the penalty kick, and Lea Schüller got the final goal in the 82nd.“All the interruptions are quite difficult to handle, especially emotionally, but we tried to keep calm,” Germany coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg said through a translator. “Maybe they can speed up the whole process.” Video review Players are unsure when a video review will be signalled.“It was a bit of insecurity throughout the match because we didn’t quite know what was assessed in a certain moment,” Popp said. “But in general, I think it’s important to have this sort of assessment.”Second-ranked Germany, which has outscored opponents 9-0, plays the winner of tomorrow’s match between Sweden and Canada on June 29 at Rennes.German Chancellor Angela Merkel called Voss-Tecklenburg after the match,“She congratulated us,” Voss-Tecklenburg recalled. “She said she was very delighted.”The Germans, who won the tournament in 2003 and 2007, have never failed to reach the quarterfinals.No. 38 Nigeria was in the knockout phase for the second time, the first since it lost in the quarterfinals to Brazil in 1999, and it joined Cameroon to become the first pair of African teams to reach the knockout stage in the same Women’s World Cup. The Indomitable Lionesses play England today.Popp scored on a 4-yard header off Magull’s corner kick, her 48th international goal.Däbritz scored on a low penalty kick beyond the outstretched left hand of Nnadozie, her third goal of the tournament and 13th of her international career.Nigeria had an excellent chance to cut its deficit in the 50th when second-half substitute Rasheedat Ajibade streaked up a flank and passed to an open Desire Oparanozie, but the ball was just ahead of the forward and rolled by.Schüller got her ninth international goal following a giveaway by Halimatu Ayinde.The Super Falcons were missing defender Ngozi Ebere and midfielder Rita Chikwelu, who served suspensions for yellow card accumulation, and forward Asisat Oshoala, who was injured.“I think we showed the whole world that Nigeria has a team that improved a lot,” Dennerby said. “It’s going the right way.”

Rugby League Peta Hiku hopes to reunite with Phil Gould when Penrith’s former executive general manager kicks off his stint as a consultant at the Warriors in 2021. The former Panthers centre is off contract with the Warriors at the end of this year but would love to sign on for a fourth season and beyond. The 27-year-old revealed his manager has been talking with a couple of other clubs but his preference was to remain a Warrior. “I’m happy to stay here at the Warriors with the way everything has been going,” Hiku said. “With the head coach [Stephen Kearney sacking] and then COVID thing, I’d been talking to my manager about it all. “Just the main thing for me now is to sort it out straight away and hopefully something does get sorted so I can focus on the footy this year. ”My family and my parents all live back there. I’ve got a daughter back there in New Zealand as well. So my decision is to make it easier on them.” If the Kiwi international gets his wish, then he knows what Gould is capable of achieving after working under him in 2016-2017 at the Panthers. “Obviously you see what he did at Penrith. He knew what he wanted for the club, what he was aiming for,” Hiku said. “So he works hard to get what he wants. He’s a man who knows a lot about the game so he’d be really good for us.” The appointment of Nathan Brown as the new coach in 2021 came on the same day Gould was given the job of sorting out the development and pathways at the Warriors, as well as setting up a players’ academy – another of his achievements at Penrith. “It’s exciting for us as a playing group knowing what’s ahead for us next year,” Hiku said. “In saying that we’ve got a job this year before worrying about the next. It makes it easier knowing what the plan is for next year but we’re all on board with what Toddy [interim coach Todd Payten] is doing at the moment.” Back-rower Isaiah Papali’i is not all that familiar with Brown’s style but asked around to find out more. “I haven’t had much to do with him yet but I know Mason Lino at Newcastle said he’s a very smart coach and knows the game well,” Papali’i said. “It will be exciting to see him in that head coach role next year.” On the immediate horizon is round 14 and Friday’s clash with the Panthers in Gosford.

The PCC captain Simon ensued there were no late order travails with a composed 13no. But it was Manik who was the star of the innings with a beautiful 54no, finishing with a glorious straight six to ensure PCC’s 6 wicket victory, the man of the match award and a place in the Grand Final on Sunday 28th January in Bangkok.PCC would like to invite any supporters to come along for a great finals day out, the details of the fixture will be advertised on the club Facebook page and website. It was an unusually hot and sticky Sunday morning at the Thai Polo Ground, the home of Pattaya CC, when the two captains strode out to the wicket for the toss. Kerala CC won it and elected to bat first in the cup semi final with the winners facing the Southerners in the final.The PCC opening bowlers, Andy Emery and Lee Standen, started superbly as the new ball offered assistance through the air and off the wicket. Lee made the breakthrough when Simon Philbrook held a sharp chance at a deep gully and Wezley Masterton held an even better catch at cover point. When Venky snaffled a catch at mid off, Kerala CC were 20 for 3 and behind a par scoring rate.Peter Gangur’s (2/19) wily spin and Basu’s (1/16) inswing maintained the pressure on the opposition batsmen. Wezley (1/25) bowled with his usual aggression that at times was too quick for the lower order batsmen and Damith Tilakaratna (0/12) continued PCC’s dominance. A few lapses in concentration from Paul Hack behind the stumps gave KCC some respite but Lee returned at the death to mop up the tail and finish with a very tidy 4 for 22, as KCC were all out in the last over for 111. A special mention should go to Shaun Jones who was outstanding in the field.In reply PCC made the worst possible start when Venky was beaten for pace and lost his off stump first ball. Wezley’s (14) cameo allowed Andy to stake a claim for a regular top order spot but he soon found the pace too hot and was cleaned up also without troubling the scorers. At the other end Manik was seemly untroubled and when he was joined by Lee the pair calmly added 44 runs to take the PCC score to 76 before Lee (16) was caught behind.
