  13. Gueye relishing battle for places at Goodison


    Everton's Idrissa Gueye has welcomed competition for midfield places at the club prompted by Morgan Schneiderlin's arrival from Manchester United and the rise to prominence of academy 18-year-old Tom Davies.

    "There's really good quality, tough competition but good competition which is good for the team," Gueye, whose Senegal team lost on penalties to eventual winners Cameroon in the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations last month.

    "It (Schneiderlin's arrival) is a really good signing for us and training has gone well so far. I don't know if the gaffer will put me on the pitch and play with him or with another player. It's not a problem, we are a team and everybody deserves to play. 

    "I'm not surprised about Tom. He's shown it on the pitch when we train and he has a lot of talent. "The form is good for the team. I watched us on TV when I was away and we played well, won games and that's good for us. "Now I'm ready to play again and I'm looking forward to it."

  15. Bergsson banks on further Icelandic impetus


    Former Spurs and Bolton defender Gudni Bergsson has been speaking to us this afternoon and he is hoping for more notable Iceland victories like the shock 2-1 Euro 2016 win against England.

    "Beating England was fantastic. Of course we want to experience that again, or at least strive to achieve something like that again. Our women’s team is going to the Euros in Holland this summer and women’s football is quite popular. 

    "We would like to try and have some success like that again. It will be difficult to achieve. The strength of Icelandic football comes from the widespread grass roots football and there being so many clubs in Iceland. We have over 70 league clubs spread around the country. Most of them are from Reykjavik but they are from all around the coastline of Iceland. That is the strength of Icelandic football. 

    "The education of the coaches is good. We now have 60 professionals playing in Europe. That is quite good for a population of 330,000.We are ambitious and quite organised in the way we approach things. The mentality of the players is good. That enables us to perform and punch above our weight. Long may that continue. We are hoping to bring further success to Icelandic football in general."

  19. Goal machine Rush tips Sturridge to shine


    Ian Rush knew where the old onion bag was and the legendary Liverpool marksman believes Daniel Sturridge, who has scored only two league goals this term, has a key role to play in front of goal in the present day Reds line-up.

    Liverpool are yet to win in the league this year but Rush said: "Daniel Sturridge is probably the most gifted striker we have got. I was made up that he didn't go in January and I hope he is still here next year but you have got to fight for your place. 

    "I think he will fight for his place. One thing for certain this year is that we will need Daniel Sturridge and once he gets that chance he has to take it. 

    "And when he does take it and starts scoring again I think he'll play a major part in Liverpool making the top four."
