Oisin Murphy will officially be crowned Britain’s champion Flat jockey for a second time at Doncaster on Saturday after William Buick’s faint hopes of lifting the crown ended at Newcastle on Friday evening.Reigning champion Murphy signed off for the season with a double at Southwell on Tuesday to take his tally for the campaign to 142, after which he headed for Kentucky to ride The Lir Jet and Kameko at the Breeders’ Cup.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –center_img Buick closed the gap to nine with a winner at Kempton on Wednesday and a double at the same venue on Thursday – but his championship ambitions were dealt a major blow after Thursday’s card was abandoned after three races due to fog, meaning Buick missed four rides.With seven booked rides on the final afternoon at Doncaster on Saturday, Buick needed to steer home at least two winners from four mounts at Newcastle to keep the title race alive.After finishing fourth aboard Mustarrid in the first race and second on Frow in division one of the seven-furlong handicap, Buick was relying on Strong Steps to win division two to make a title win mathematically possible.- Advertisement –last_img read more

FIFA: Ibrahimovic stunner ineligible to be goal of the year

first_imgZlatan Ibrahimovic scored his astonishing overhead kick goal against England hours too late to be named best goal in 2012 in a FIFA contest.FIFA said Thursday that Ibrahimovic’s fourth goal in Sweden’s 4-2 victory came after voting opened at 1400 GMT Wednesday for its 10 approved candidates for the Puskas Award.“Given that a number of votes have already been cast for this year’s award, the select committee for the Puskas Award may not, at this stage, include an additional nominee,” FIFA said in a statement.FIFA said the goal can be considered by its selection panel of experts as a candidate for the 2013 Puskas Award.The 2012 award, named after Hungarian great Ferenc Puskas, will be announced Jan. 7 at the Ballon d’Or gala in Zurich.Lionel Messi, Neymar and Rademal Falcao are among the contenders being voted for by visitors to fifa.com. Ibrahimovic’s instinctive 30-yard (meter) strike was lavished with praise by Swedish and English media.He reacted after England goalkeeper Joe Hart weakly headed the ball clear outside the penalty area. Facing away from the goal, Ibrahimovic leaped high and twisted to launch a looping shot which bounced into the unguarded net.Ibrahimovic ripped off his shirt in celebration and ran to the halfway line to be greeted by teammates mostly laughing with surprise at what they witnessed.The stoppage-time spectacle was a fitting end to the first international match at the new Friends Arena in Stockhom.“From now it’s called Zlatan Arena,” wrote sports columnist Mats Olsson in the Swedish daily Expressen. Ibrahimovic said it was “probably the goal I enjoyed the most” of those he scored for the national team.“I’ve played a lot of good games. I’ve scored many nice goals,” he said. “But the important thing was to win in the new arena, which I’ve said earlier, it feels like a Coliseum.”last_img read more
