‘It’s an important game for us’ – Chance

first_img Olivia Chance made her City Women debut at Ashton Gate (via JMPUK) The creative midfielder was a mainstay in the Football Ferns midfield at this summer’s World Cup, starting all three group games in France despite missing the majority of the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury.She has praised Oxtoby and the City Women backroom staff for their patience as she returns to full fitness after a period of time off after the World Cup. “I think Tanya and all the staff have been very good with my past injury and making sure that everything is good and not throwing me in at the deep end to see what happens  After the World Cup I had a bit of time off, so making sure I’m back to full fitness is not only important for me but also for the team.“The girls and staff have made it really easy for me to settle into life in Bristol. I’ve managed to get out and about to explore the City and everyday I’m learning more about my team and the way we’re wanting to play.“It was great to see the level of support we received on the opening weekend at Ashton Gate for my new club and it was a fantastic occasion for all involved.” Chance also brings Barclays FA Women’s Super League experience have spent three season at Everton Ladies and the twenty five year-old believes this weekend is good opportunity for City Women to get their first win of the season under their belt, but she is wary of the threats Bees will pose. “First of all we want to make sure that we get the win this weekend. It’s key for us to get some goals this weekend and begin to in build momentum for our game against Chelsea and winning always brings confidence, so it’s an important game this weekend, said Chance.“Every time you play a team from the division below you know they’re always going to want to win the game and prove a point, because there is nothing better from their point of view.“We can’t look past this game, we’ve got to make sure that we win and build our confidence.”last_img read more

Report: Michael Keaton in talks to reprise Batman role for upcoming ‘The Flash’ movie

first_imgChristopher Polk/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Michael Keaton, who played the titular characted in Tim Burton’s 1989 film Batman and its 1992 sequel, Batman Returns, is in talks to reprise the role in the upcoming DC Comics movie The Flash, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.That’s not all, though.  If a deal is struck, the veteran actor could also turn up as the caped crusader in other DC films.  Insiders tell the industry trade that Keaton’s Batman could function as “something of a mentor or guide or even string-puller,” similar to Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.Batgirl could be one such movie, according to THR.Matt Reeves’ upcoming The Batman has already cast Robert Pattinson in the title role, but The Flash project is being viewed as separate from other DC Universe films.  Additionally, with The Flash’s storyline reportedly involving time and inter-dimensional travel, Keaton’s Batman could potentially cross over from one “movie universe” into another.Following his turns in Burton’s Batman films, Keaton, 68, tried to distance himself from the role, and even tweaked it in 2014’s Birdman, in which he played an actor that once starred in superhero movies.Ezra Miller, who played Barry Allen — a.k.a. The Flash — in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League in 2017, is already on board to reprise the role in the upcoming film, set to start rolling in spring 2021.By George CostantinoCopyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Heavyweight champ Joshua to make US debut against Miller

(AP Photo/Kamil Krzaczynski, File) LONDON (AP) — The Anthony Joshua roadshow is finally heading to the United States. Not to fight the only other heavyweight champion, though. The four-title champion will make his American boxing debut when he defends his WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belts against Jarrell Miller at Madison Square Garden on June 1.“I plan to embrace the culture and leave with an appetite for more,” said Joshua, whose 22 professional fights have all taken place in Britain. He has won all of those bouts, 21 by knockout.His last five fights have been in stadiums, with nearly 400,000 spectators attending in total. The highest-profile bout was against Wladimir Klitschko in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley Stadium in April 2017.But Joshua has been increasingly aware that he needs to fight in the United States to raise his global profile.British boxer Anthony Joshua, centre, celebrates with with Mayor of London Sadiq Khan after winning against Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko following their fight for Joshua’s IBF and the vacant WBA Super World and IBO heavyweight titles, at Wembley Stadium, in London, Saturday, April 29, 2017. (Nick Potts/PA via AP)“AJ has created an incredible ‘Lion’s Den’ atmosphere in the U.K. and we plan to bring that energy to New York,” said Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn.He won’t be doing so against WBC champion Deontay Wilder, who also is undefeated and most recently fought to a draw with Tyson Fury in December. Wilder has been openly critical of Joshua, claiming Joshua has been ducking him, and that boxing fans want to see a matchup to consolidate all the heavyweight titles.Joshua has said he is looking to unify the belts, but negotiations with Wilder broke down last year.Miller, meanwhile, also is undefeated after winning 23 of his 24 fights. He was born in New York, so fighting at the Garden is a natural for him.“AJ is making a huge mistake coming over here to fight me in my own backyard,” Miller said. “He wants to announce himself on the American stage, but all he’s doing is delivering me those belts by hand.”The fight will be broadcast by DAZN, the streaming service that also has a huge monetary deal with middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez. It will be on live television in the U.K.“I am looking forward to taking on another challenge with a good boxer and a brilliant talker,” Joshua said. “It will be an exciting fight, I will leave nothing to chance, and plan on dismantling Miller in style to make my mark.”___More AP sports: https://apnews.com/tag/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP_Sportslast_img read more
