International friendlies round-up: Mario Balotelli scores in Italy win


แทง บอล sbobet Mario Balotelli took just 21 minutes to find the net for Italy on his return to the side as they beat Saudi Arabia 2-1 in a friendly on Monday. The striker made his first appearance for the national side in nearly four years to give new coach Roberto Mancini a winning start after Italy missed out on World Cup qualification for the first time since 1958.

Balotelli broke the deadlock after 21 minutes, twisting past a defender before beating goalkeeper Mohammed Al-Owais with a low shot from outside the area. Substitute Andrea Belotti extended Italy's lead in the 69th minute, scoring at the second attempt after his powerful downward header was parried by Al-Owais.

Saudi Arabia, who face Russia, Egypt and Uruguay in their World Cup group, had not offered the slightest threat until that point but suddenly burst into life. Davide Zappacosta lost possession on the halfway line and the ball was quickly slipped to Yahya Al Shehri who sped past the onrushing Gianluigi Donnarumma and scored into an empty net in the 72nd minute.

แทง บอล sbobet Portugal's defensive frailties were again exposed as Tunisia hit back from two goals behind to hold the European champions to a 2-2 draw. Portugal, who rested captain and leading scorer Cristiano Ronaldo after he played in Saturday's Champions League final for Real Madrid, went ahead through an Andre Silva header from Ricardo Quaresma's pinpoint cross in the 22nd minute.

Midfielder Joao Mario doubled the lead when he rifled in a shot from outside the penalty area and Portugal, who face Spain, Morocco and Iran in their World Cup group, seemed to be in control. The cracks began to appear five minutes later, however, when Anice Badri was left alone inside the penalty area to fire past Anthony Lopes and pull one back for Tunisia who face England, Panama and Belgium in their World Cup group.

Portugal then failed to properly clear a free kick in the 64th minute and when the ball was played back in, Fakhreddine Ben Youssef got between four defenders to slide the ball home with the hosts appealing in vain for offside. France got their preparations off to a winning start as they beat the Republic of Ireland 2-0 in Paris, with Olivier Giroud and Nabil Fekir scoring for the hosts.

แทง บอล sbobet Tottenham forward Son Heung-min scored a screamer as South Korea beat Honduras 2-0 in their opening World Cup warm-up match on Monday. Son thumped a thunderous shot off his left foot to put South Korea ahead in the 60th minute, before Moon Seon-min capped his international debut with their second goal on 72 minutes. The win will give encouragement to South Korea's coach Shin Tae-yong, who took over last June after Uli Stielike's sacking and is facing a tough Group F at the World Cup.

England player ratings: Peter Shilton's verdict as England head to Russia with a win


sbo666 England's World Cup preparations ended with a 2-0 victory over Costa Rica, but did anyone enhance their claims for place in Gareth Southgate's starting line-up when they begin their campaign against Tunisia on June 18?. Marcus Rashford scored a stunning goal before substitute Danny Welbeck made it 2-0 in the 76th minute as the Three Lions signed off with a comfortable win at Elland Road before heading to Russia.

Jack Butland - 7
Butland couldn't have done anymore against Costa Rica, but coming off after 65 minutes signifies to me Jordan Pickford will start against Tunisia. Butland looked very confident and made a very good save during a solid performance.

Trent Alexander-Arnold - 7
I thought the Liverpool full-back did very well on debut. He did a solid job for Southgate and showed a lot of promise. It was great for him to get a game ahead of the World Cup because you never know when you might be called upon.

John Stones - 6
There were a couple of lapses in concentration from the Manchester City man. He gave the ball away far too easy on a couple of occasions. He certainly has a touch of class but just occasionally a lapse of concentration lets him down, giving the opposition a chance. You don't want that when you are playing at a World Cup because quality opposition will take those chances.

Harry Maguire - 6
I like Harry Maguire. He's a good defender but like Stones, he got caught a couple of time against Costa Rica. For me, he can certainly do better but I would have him in my team when the action gets underway in Russia.

Phil Jones - 7
The Manchester United defender looked solid throughout. He looked comfortable on the ball and also made a few good runs forward. sbo666

Danny Rose - 7
I would've liked to have seen a bit more going forward from Rose. In the first half, he tried to get forward but there wasn't too much space with Costa Rica getting plenty of men behind the ball. He probably needed the game, and with that in mind he did well.

Jordan Henderson - 7
I would have Henderson in my team. He put in a solid performance and produced a couple of good shots. He's one of those players likely to pop up with a goal so that's why I'd have him in my starting line-up.

Fabian Delph - 6
Another solid if not spectacular performance. He didn't create a lot going forward but over on that left side he held his position well and did the job Southgate required of him.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek - 7
I thought Loftus-Cheek's performance showed a lot of promise. He didn't create as much as I thought he might do but he's a big lad and he showed his strength on a couple of occasions which I like. He's definitely going to get better and is one for the future. He is a good option for Southgate from the bench.

Marcus Rashford - 9
Rashford was lively in what was a pretty average game. He started very brightly and his goal was superb. It looked like he really wanted to make an impression.

Jamie Vardy - 8
I like what Vardy brings to the team. He is always looking to get in the box and on the end of crosses. He'll stretch a defence which is very important for someone like Harry Kane as it gives him a little bit more room in that area to go and get the ball. He's also an out-and-out goalscorer and for I'd play him and Kane up front together in the first couple of games.

Nick Pope - 6

Pope didn't really have much to do but he also looked very confident with the England shirt on. He had a few dodgy back passes to deal with early on, which is not what you want, but again he dealt with everything thrown at him.

Danny Welbeck - 7
The Arsenal striker scored a good goal. He has just got this knack of scoring for England which is great. He's great to have in the squad because he can do a bit of everything. He is not a starter for me with the likes of Kane, Rashford and Vardy but he's another decent option. Another goal keeps him in the frame.

Dele Alli - 6
The fact Alli was involved in the second goal will be good for his confidence because in truth, he's been struggling a bit lately. His confidence doesn't seem to be sky high at the moment. He reminds me a little of David Platt. He's someone who will get you goals from midfield but at the moment he's not really firing. However, let's hope he's saving it for the World Cup and comes good at the right time.

Kieran Trippier - 7
Trippier got forward at every opportunity when he came on. He put some excellent crosses into the box and made an impact, however, I'd have Kyle Walker starting over him in the wing back position. I wouldn't have Walker in the back four because he makes a few errors when he's the last man. He's better going forward and Man City have seen that too. When you are wing-back you always have people around the back of you to cover your mistakes.

Other subs
Gary Cahill replaced John Stones in the 65th minute. He took the captain's armband and it's good to have his experience in the squad. Jesse Lingard came on for the last 11 minutes but we didn't see too much of him this time around. sbo666
