‘These are the games you want to play in’ – Humphrey

first_imgThe midfielder and her teammates head into the league encounter off the back of their 3-0 FA Continental Cup win over London Bees.Tanya Oxtoby’s side are now aiming to use that first win of the season as a springboard, with attentions now turning back to the league and the visit of Chelsea to SGS this afternoon (3PM KO).“Three-nil at the weekend, getting a goal and a good team performance is great, especially going into this weekend against Chelsea,” Humphrey said.“The team are really buzzing from it. We had some really good passages of play and that’s what we want to bring into this weekend. When we’ve got the ball we want to be composed but it was a good performance.“We know there are areas to build on and improve of course but we’ve looked back and reflected on it and that’s what we want to bring this week.” The camp are in high spirits after last Sunday’s cup win, something which brings added confidence and belief to a young squad who thrive off the big occasions.And with Chelsea in town, Humphrey says City can lay down a strong message.Humphrey continued: “As a young group we are still learning and developing together, as a group we have only been together a few weeks but each week has got better.“The mood in training has been great this week, especially off the back of a good performance and a win. Looking ahead to Chelsea it is exciting, these are the game you want to be playing in and want to perform in.“We hope to exceed expectations, go out there and put in a good performance and see what happens. We want to be hard to beat and that’s the thought process going into this weekend.”Tickets for City Women’s clash with Chelsea this afternoon (3PM) are still available to purchase online here.

Barca’s Messi receives record sixth European Golden Shoe

first_imgBARCELONA, (Reuters) – Barcelona forward Lionel Messi picked up a record-extending sixth – and third consecutive – European Golden Shoe award yesterday following his outstanding individual 2018-19 domestic campaign. The award is presented to the top goalscorer in league football across Europe, with the Argentine finding the net 36 times last season as Barca retained their La Liga title.Messi was three ahead of nearest rival Kylian Mbappe, who scored 33 times for Paris St Germain as they won France’s Ligue 1.“My team and my team mates, I would have never been able to win even one of these awards without them,” Messi said at the presentation in Barcelona. “This is a recognition for everyone, all the team.” The forward, who won his first Golden Shoe in 2010, admitted he was disappointed to have missed out on Champions League glory again after Barcelona blew a 3-0 first leg lead to Liverpool at the semi-final stage. However, he said he was conscious that the league should be the club’s priority.“The Champions League is something special and we all want to win it, but we are conscious that the Liga is the most important.“La Liga can help you reach the Champions League and the Copa del Rey. It is very difficult if you don’t perform well in the Liga to compete in the Champions League. “We never forget about the Liga and the Copa because we are Barcelona and we always aim to win everything.”Barca have endured a difficult start to the season, losing twice in their first eight league games. They have won their last three matches to pull themselves into second place on 16 points, two behind leaders Real Madrid.last_img read more
