Andres Nocioni, one of Argentina’s basketball greats and former EuroLeague champion and Final Four MVP, has criticized the use of naturalized players by national teams, especially when there is no connection between them and the country they represent.

“I would never sign a foreign player,” Nocioni told Infobae when asked about Argentina head coach Pablo Prigoni’s recent comments on the naturalization of American full-back Lorenzo Brown by EuroBasket champions Spain. 2022. “I don’t think that should be allowed. It’s one thing if a player is an import who has just practiced from an early age, lives in the country and plays in a team. In this case, it is possible, it can be selectable. But going out to sign players, as needed… no. That’s what clubs are for, not national teams. Also, buying players for your team is not cheap. It is better to invest this money in training and it is a process of monitoring inferior players who in the future can participate in our selected teams.

Nocioni was one of the prominent members of the ‘golden generation’ of the Argentina national team which also included Manu Ginobili, Luis Scola, Prigioni and Fabricio Oberto, among others. He won 12 medals in international competitions, including gold at the 2004 Olympics, silver at the 2002 World Cup and bronze at the 2008 Olympics.

In 2015, Nocioni pushed Real Madrid to win their first EuroLeague championship in 20 years while being named Final Four MVP. He spent six years in Spain from 2012 to 2017 until his retirement.

From 2004 to 2012, Nocioni played in the NBA with the Chicago Bulls, Sacramento Kings and Philadelphia 76ers.

Maclaren and Leckie could battle to lead the line in their 4-3-3 setup, while Awer Mabil’s decisive goal on Thursday should earn him another start, with Aaron Moy also likely to keep his place in the engine room as one of the Socceroos’ key men.

Ryan; Atkinson, Degenek, Sainsbury, Behich; McGree, Mooy, Metcalfe; Mabil, Leckie, Boyle

NYON, Switzerland — UEFA decided on Tuesday to let Belarus participate in the draw for next month’s 2024 European Championship qualifiers despite a request from the government of tournament host Germany to withdraw the draw. team because Belarus is a military ally of Russia.

UEFA have confirmed that Belarus will take part in the 53-nation draw from which Russia is banned, although Belarusians cannot be placed in the same group as neighboring Ukraine for security reasons.

The qualifying groups will be drawn on October 9 in Frankfurt and German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser last week urged UEFA not to let Belarus play. UEFA said they responded to Faeser in a confidential letter.

UEFA acted in May to ban Belarus from hosting matches and ensured that its ‘home’ matches in neutral territory would not be watched by fans.

Imposing the sanctions on Belarus four months ago, UEFA said the Russian invasion of Ukraine “was facilitated by the access granted from the neighboring territory of Belarus”.

Russian teams were banned from international competitions in February by UEFA and FIFA, the world football body. A Russian appeal against these decisions was rejected before the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Other policy decisions that limit the Euro 2024 draw, including the extension of long-standing UEFA lockdowns on games between Azerbaijan and Armenia, Spain and Gibraltar, as well as Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina against Kosovo.

UEFA is also intervening in the draw to limit excessive travel and potential extreme weather conditions a team may face.

Carlo Ancelotti has thanked his Atletico Madrid counterpart Diego Simeone for praising Real Madrid’s defensive work after Los Blancos won Sunday’s derby.

First-half goals from Rodrygo and Federico Valverde propelled Madrid to a sixth victory in as many league appearances this season.

Although Mario Hermoso pulled one back, before being sent off late for two bookings, Madrid were good value for victory at the Civitas Metropolitano.

Simeone praised Ancelotti’s work in his post-match press conference, praising Madrid’s defensive organization in a ‘low block’ and their efficiency on the break, comparing them to his Atletico side, winner of the title in 2013-14.

His comment claiming that critics accused the Atletico squad of being ‘defensive’ may have been interpreted by some as a backhanded compliment for Madrid, although Ancelotti decided against taking the view cynical.

“I think in the first half we did very well defensively at the start, then we were comfortable with the goals and in the second half we got rid of the idea of ​​doing damage” , said Ancelotti.

“It affected us because we suffered at the end. Atletico pushed us and created problems for us.

“Yes, we defended with a low block and got used to it. We warded off the danger of [Atletico] break up with [Antoine] Griezmann or Joao Felix. The low block allowed us to control them well.

“If Simeone says that we defended well in a low block, I say thank you to him, it’s a compliment.

“Ideal football is to score lots of goals and not concede, perfection does not exist.”

Both Madrid goalscorers have emerged as key players this season, taking on greater responsibility after previously being deployed more as rotation options.

Rodrygo started in place of the injured Karim Benzema in attack and effectively led the line, winning La Liga’s MVP award for the game, and Ancelotti was eager to congratulate him and Valverde.

“They are both very special players because they are what the modern footballer must be now, who must play in different positions, must have physicality, technique,” added Ancelotti.

“Both have improved a lot, and we are delighted because they are doing very well.”

After a scoreless first half, Hernandez broke the deadlock for Bayern by slotting home Joshua Kimmich’s cross. Kimmich’s cross was misjudged by Raphinha, allowing Hernandez to give the hosts a 1-0 advantage.

Sane doubled Bayern’s lead in the 54th minute after Jamal Musiala contacted his international team-mate in an attack. Musiala’s pass allowed Sane to race towards goal before shooting past Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.

Manuel Neuer made four saves for Bayern to help preserve the shutout victory, twice disallowing former team-mate Robert Lewandowski.

Bayern remain top of Group C while Barcelona are in second place.

Here’s a look at some of the best results from the Champions League action:

John Stones and Erling Haaland scored four minutes apart at the end of the second half as Pep Guardiola’s side went unbeaten in all competitions. Despite allowing Borussia Dortmund to dictate much of the pace in Manchester, the Citizens again used a bit of late magic at home.

Jude Bellingham powered Edin Terzic’s side ahead in the 56th minute, being in the right place to drive home Marco Reus’ shot attempt. Reus’ shot from a Gio Reyna corner headed towards goal, but Bellingham’s redirected header sent Ederson the wrong way.

Stones equalized for the Citizens in the 80th minute, lining up a shot outside the box and hitting paydirt to make it 1-1. Haaland completed the comeback by stretching into the box to drive home Joao Cancelo’s cross for his 13th goal of the season in all competitions.

Joao Mario and David Neres helped Benfica overturn an early deficit to claim a 2-1 win on the road against the Old Lady. It was a second straight group stage win for Benfica and a 12th straight overall in all competitions this summer.

Arkadiusz Milik needed just four minutes to give Juventus an early lead, heading home from a Leandro Paredes free-kick. Milik was untouched to send his header into the bottom left corner.

VAR ruled in favor of a penalty opportunity for Benfica as 19-year-old Fabio Miretti fouled Goncalo Ramos in the box just before half-time. Joao Mario got up and netted the kick home, giving Benfica a lifeline heading into the second half.

Benfica completed their comeback in the 55th minute as early second-half pressure led to the go-ahead goal. Rafa Silva’s shot into the box was saved by Mattia Perin, but David Neres was in the right spot to smack the rebound for a 2-1 lead over Benfica.

Moise Kean rattled off the post later in the second half while Angel Di Maria was also denied an equalizer. Juventus are now winless in their last four matches in all competitions while Benfica are second on six points.


Sporting Lisbon 2, Tottenham 0

(Paulinho 90′, Arthur 90+3′)


Tottenham needed late goals on Matchday 1 to secure a victory over Marseille, but this time it was the London club who were punished with a pair of late finishes.

Sporting Lisbon scored twice in stoppage time to earn a 2-0 win at home to Tottenham and stay ahead of the EPL by three points.

Pedro Goncalves’ corner was met by Paulinho in the 90th minute to give the Portuguese hosts a decisive goal. Hugo Lloris couldn’t do anything about the striker’s header, watching him land in the back of the net.

Substitute Arthur added an insurance goal for Sporting Lisbon in the 93rd minute, collecting a pass from Paulinho before beating Lloris for his second goal of the season in all competitions.

Spain international Antonio Adan was huge for Sporting Lisbon, making five saves to keep a second straight UCL clean sheet.
