1 Eder celebrates a Lille goal Lille want to complete the transfer of Swansea striker Eder before Euro 2016, according to the player’s agent Mikkel Beck.The Portugal forward joined Ligue 1 Lille on loan in the January transfer window after a disappointing time at Swansea following his £5million move from Braga last summer.Eder failed to score in 15 Swansea appearances, but he has struck six times in 15 games at Lille and also won a French League Cup runners-up medal.“There is an interest from Lille in keeping Eder and Eder would like to stay at Lille because he feels like this is the right place for him,” Beck, the former Middlesbrough and Denmark striker, said in an interview with Get French Football News.“So it is something we are trying to work on. There are discussions ongoing.“He has had a great six months at Lille, he has shown not only is he a great goalscorer but he has proved a capacity to set others up as well.“I think in the form he is now, I am 100 per cent sure that he can play a big part for Portugal in the Euros.”Asked if he expected Eder’s transfer to be completed before next month’s European Championship, Beck said: “That is the idea, we are working on it.”
Indian Air Force fighter jets crossed the Line of Control and destroyed a major terror camp 12 days after 40 CRPF jawans were killed in Pulwama by a suicide bomber. As India lauded the Indian Air Force for the daring strike, cricket stars Suresh Raina, Ajinkya Rahane, Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir joined the rest of the nation in saluting IAF.According to sources, 200 to 300 terrorists were killed in the strike by Indian Air Force. The cross-border air attack destroyed terrorist launchpads and Jaish-e-Mohammed control rooms, sources said.On Tuesday, Foreign Secretary VK Gokhale said India carried out a non-military, pre-emptive strike on terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed in Pakistan.”Credible intelligence was received that JeM was attempting another suicide terror attack in various parts of the country, and the fidayeen jihadis were being trained for this purpose. In the face of imminent danger, a pre-emptive strike became absolutely necessary,” Gokhale said.”The selection of the target was also conditioned by our desire to avoid civilian casualties. The facility is located in thick forest on a hilltop far away from any civilian presence. As the strike has taken place only a short while ago, we are awaiting further details,”Following the airstrike, here is how the Indian sporting fraternity reacted:My salute to #IAF for showing great courage in the face of adversity.

For the former footballer, the Arsenal boss doesn’t care about who he benches as long as he believes is the best decisionFormer English footballer Nigel Winterburn has says he understand the philosophy of Arsenal boss Unai Emery.And for him, if the manager needs to bench anyone, he would do it to make his team win in the English Premier League.“There’s no doubt that his position is number 10 behind the striker, and Emery could fit him in the system he wants to play,” Winterburn told Goal.Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“But last weekend [against Bournemouth] shows it doesn’t matter who you are, if you don’t fit the system to face the opposition, you’ll be on the bench or not in the squad.”“Anybody has got a chance of playing provided they’re in the right frame of mind and in good form. It keeps players focused and playing to the best of the ability every week,” he added.“I think he’ll be starting, as it’s at home. We’ll probably switch to a back four and Ozil will play behind the striker, it’s a straight choice between Ozil and Ramsey.”“Particularly with Aaron’s contract situation. I look forward to seeing the team sheet, as I can’t predict Emery’s team sheet or formation,” he concluded.
