  • Lampard As Chelsea Boss 'Looks Like It's Going To Happen' -Uncle


    Frank Lampard becoming Chelsea manager “looks like it’s going to happen”, says his uncle Harry Redknapp.

    Derby boss Lampard, 40, is the favourite to replace Maurizio Sarri after the Italian left Stamford Bridge to take charge of Juventus.

    Lampard led the Rams to the Championship play-off final last season – his first year in management.

    “If Chelsea comes calling, it’s a difficult one for him to turn down,” Redknapp told BBC Radio 5 Live.

    “In my personal opinion, he’ll be the manager of Chelsea.

    “It looks to me like it’s going to happen.”

    Redknapp – who managed teams including Portsmouth, Southampton, West Ham, Tottenham, and QPR – revealed he had personally told Derby chairman Mel Morris to hire Lampard, who he says “wasn’t even on the radar”.

    If Lampard was to return to Stamford Bridge, where he won three Premier League titles and the Champions League as a player, Redknapp says there would be little pressure on him.

    “It’s a no-lose situation unless he finishes outside the top six. Anything in the top six would be ok, but the Champions League would be a good season,” he said.

  • World Cup: Late Drama At Britanny As France Beat Nigeria 1-0


    Hosts France finished top of Group A after a twice-taken penalty by Wendie Renard gave them a 1-0 win over Nigeria in an incident-packed finish in Rennes.

    The initial penalty – awarded after a video assistant referee review for a foul on Viviane Asseyi – hit the post.

    But keeper Chiamaka Nnadozie was judged to have moved off her line early and Renard slotted the re-taken spot kick.

    Nigeria still have a big chance of making the knockout stage as one of the best third-placed teams, BBC reports.

    France, meanwhile, head to Le Havre to play a last-16 tie against, as yet, unknown opponents on 23 June.

    This was an unconvincing display by Corinne Diacre’s side against a team ranked 38th in the world, with France guilty of wasteful finishing before the late drama in Brittany.
