LONDON — The FA Cup final is here as Chelsea and Leicester will square off in the final of the famous competition.

[ LIVE: Follow FA Cup scores here ]

Chelsea beat Manchester City 1-0 and Leicester City beat Southampton 1-0 at Wembley in the semifinals and ProSoccerTalk was on-site at the home of English soccer to bring you coverage of both games.

Thomas Tuchel and Brendan Rodgers will now lock horns on May 15, as over 21,000 fans will attend the final as part pf a UK government test event.

Leicester and Chelsea also square off in the Premier League a few days after the final as both clubs push for a top four finish (Leicester sit third on 66 points with Chelsea fourth on 64 points) late in the season.

With Chelsea also reaching the UEFA Champions League final, against Manchester City in Porto, the next few weeks could be huge for Tuchel as he aims to win two trophies and finish in the top four in his first few months in charge at Stamford Bridge.

As for Leicester, they have never won the FA Cup and Rodgers’ side are so dangerous to play against with Kelechi Iheanacho in fine form in recent months, plus the duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Youri Tielemans so solid in central midfield.

USMNT star Christian Pulisic scored in the FA Cup final last season (and then severely injured his hamstring) as Chelsea lost to Arsenal, with the American winger keen to lift his first piece of silverware in England this weekend.

FA Cup final score prediction

All signs point towards a fairly comfortable win for Chelsea, but they struggled against Arsenal in midweek as they lost and Tuchel bemoaned rotating his squad. Leicester won at a much-changed Man United so they go into this game full of confidence. I’m going for a Chelsea win, though. It will be close but Mason Mount will be the difference. Chelsea 2-1 Leicester.


Live analysis on Leicester – Southampton, semifinal

FULL TIME! Deserved win for Leicester, as they beat Southampton 1-0. Kelechi Iheanacho’s second half goal was enough to set up a final against Chelsea. That should be a beauty of a game!

Thanks for joining me at Wembley, and here are three things we learned.

James Maddison twice goes close for Leicester, as they look to kick on. The fans are then thanked for turning up for this test event and there is a lovely round of applause as the announcer looks forward to more supporters coming back soon. Lovely moment here at Wembley!

Theo Walcott on as a sub for Southampton. Chants of “Theo, Theo” from the fans here at Wembley as he comes on. Seems like a lot of Arsenal fans are among the locals here for this test event!

CLOSE! Ibrahima Diallo twice goes close, and Che Adams and Danny Ings have chances. Saints pushing hard for an equalizer. This is a really good game now and the fans are getting into it!

GOALLLL! Kelechi Iheanacho puts Leicester City 1-0 up, and there is a stroke of luck about it. Jamie Vardy does superbly to race down the left and crosses for Iheanacho. His first shot was blocked, but the clearance went straight to him and he tucks it away and wheels away in celebration. Iheanacho has scored 10 in his last seven games in all competitions. What a run!

Southampton have had the better of it so far in the second half. They are starting to see more of the ball. Ralph Hasenhuttl will be happy with what he has seen. The subs coming on will be huge in this game. James Maddison to come on soon for Leicester? Che Adams and Theo Walcott on soon for Southampton?

HALF TIME! A few Leicester corners cause Southampton problems, as they just managed to clear but left Wilfred Ndidi open. Leicester had the better chances in the first half, but Saints are hanging in there. Intriguing second half coming up.

CLOSE! Diallo gave the ball away and Vardy raced through after a great ball from Tielemans, but Vardy clipped his shot just over the bar from a tight angle. Unlike him. First big chance of the game.

Leicester spring a counter as Jamie Vardy and Ayoze Perez link up and the latter crossed for Kelechi Iheanacho but overhit it. Poor from Perez.

That game has calmed down here. Few chants going up from the fans, and Southampton had a chance over the top but Schmeichel rushed out to deny Ings.

BOOKING! Ibrahima Diallo picks up an early yellow card as he caught Jamie Vardy, that was a nasty one. Lots of robust tackles flying in. Tasty start!

KICK OFF! 2,000 fans for each team at each end. ‘Foxes Never Quit’ reads a Leicester banner. ‘We March On’ reads the Southampton banner. Which side will prevail to reach the final?

Boy, did that applause from the supporters here for Leicester and Southampton sound good. 4,000 locals and key workers in attendance at Wembley for this UK government test event. Biggest crowd for a football game in England for over 12 months

Sun is shining, fans are walking up towards Wembley and the atmosphere is building. Remember, 4,000 fans will be here today. They are key workers and local residents of Wembley, as the UK government is testing how fans can return safely.

Team news is here, as Maddison is left out for Leicester after his off-field issues last week. Soyuncu and Perez start. Djenepo replaces Walcott for Southampton.

Hello from Wembley!

ANALYSIS ON CHELSEA – MANCHESTER CITY

FULL TIME! Aside from a late chance Sterling smashed over the bar, City created nothing and their quadruple hopes are over. Chelsea reach the FA Cup final for the fourth time in the last five seasons, and they were sharper and hungrier throughout.

NO GOAL! Pulisic scores a beauty in stoppage time, but the offside flag goes up, correctly. What a goal that was, and Pulisic can’t believe he was just offside.

SUB: Pulisic comes off the bench to replace Mount, as the two Pennsylvanian natives who grew up 50 miles apart collide with Steffen in goal for City. USMNT, assemble!

WHAT A SAVE! Zack Steffen denies Ziyech, who is clean through, brilliantly. The USMNT goalkeeper stands tall to stop Chelsea, and Ziyech, grabbing a second goal in quick succession. Big, big stop.

GOALLLL! Timo Werner sets up Ziyech to make it 1-0. Chelsea get the goal they deserve, as Cancelo was caught out by Timo Werner, and Zack Steffen caught in nomansland as Werner squares to Ziyech.

INJURY! Oh no, Kevin de Bruyne comes off with an injury. Phil Foden replaces him. Big blow for Man City, as De Bruyne seems to have jarred his ankle. KDB looks furious as he hobbles off here at Wembley, but the injury doesn’t look too serious. City have some huge games coming up, so surely that is just a precaution. City will hope so…

HALF TIME! A half Chelsea had the better of, as Ziyech had a goal disallowed and James and Chilwell both went close. City started to wake up before the break, but Pep will not be happy with that.

Not many chances as half time nears. James flashed a shot just wide, then was booked for a foul on Fernandinho. The City midfielder should have been booked for a foul on Mount before that.

Chelsea looking so calm on the ball and playing in-behind Cancelo and Mendy easily out wide. Manchester City sluggish, but Chelsea have had an extra day of rest compared to City. That is showing, so far. This FA Cup semifinal is just starting to bubble into life, and Pep Guardiola has taken his big jacket off on the sidelines. It is warming up.

WIDE! Ben Chilwell bobbles a shot wide after a great ball from Reece James to the back post. Ziyech influential in that too. Chelsea look really dangerous on the counter. City haven’t got going, yet.

CHANCE! After a nice run over the top, Gabriel Jesus curls towards goal but Kepa saves easily.

NO GOAL! Ziyech finishes but Werner was flagged for offside, and the decision stands. No goal, but a good move down the left from Chelsea.

Kick off! 

Team news: The big team news is Kepa starting in goal for Chelsea, who also start Ziyech and Werner in attack. Man City start USMNT goalkeeper Steffen in goal, while Dias and Laporte start at center back with Stones on the bench. Sergio Aguero isn’t in the squad.

Atmosphere is building among the very small number of people inside the stadium. Both teams out warming up. Helicopters buzzing overhead. What a game this should be.

Man City going for the quadruple and Chelsea in fine form under Thomas Tuchel. Something has to give!

 

Hello from Wembley! A stunning day here in London, and some really intriguing team news.

Croatia blanks Belgium as snakebit Lukaku denied super sub status

0 Comments

Belgium’s golden generation crashed out of the World Cup following a scoreless draw with Croatia, who will finish second to victorious Morocco in Group F at the 2022 tournament in Qatar.

Romelu Lukaku came off the bench and came close to being the hero on several occasions, but the Red Devils could not find the goal needed to send Croatia home and visit the Round of 16.

STREAM LIVE CROATIA vs BELGIUM

How’d we get here? Croatia snapped off a 4-1 win over Canada to move atop the group following an opening draw with Morocco, while Belgium fell to the Moroccans after beating the Canadians.

De Bruyne, Lukaku can’t save the day as Belgium whimpers out

Romelu Lukaku finally made his tournament debut, a halftime sub with the Red Devils requiring a win to claim a spot in the knockout rounds.

The Belgian was cued up by Kevin De Bruyne and Thorgan Hazard amongst others, the latter lifting a ball onto Lukaku’s chest inside the six in the 90th minute, but the Inter Milan man just couldn’t get it over the line.

His xG over 45 minutes of work was 1.67 and De Bruyne was credited with three chances created, but Croatia stood firm and got the point required to line up against Group E’s winner in the Round of 16.

RB Leipzig’s Josko Gvardiol will leave this group stage will an escalated price tag, if there was even room for it to go up; The well-rated 20-year-old center back was instrumental in the clean sheet and had more interventions than even Croatian keeper Dominik Livakovic.

Key storylines, players to watch closely

Croatia looked sleepy in the opening draw with Morocco, a draw that looks better after the Atlas Lions beat Belgium. They snapped to life, perhaps somewhat fueled by Canadian coach John Herdman’s confident pre-match talk, and now look capable of taking down anyone in the field. Or was that merely Canada’s beleaguered defense? We’ll find out when Mateo Kovacic and Co. meet the Belgians.

Kevin De Bruyne made waves after the win over Canada when he said Belgium’s golden generation missed its window by not claiming honors at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and perhaps it shouldn’t be a surprise that the Red Devils failed to take down Morocco. They’ve been without Romelu Lukaku so far this tournament and Michy Batshuayi has the lone goal. Will Roberto Martinez’s men head home far earlier than expected?

Netherlands vs USA: How to watch, live stream link, team news

0 Comments

This United States men’s national team looks for a legacy-cementing performance when it meets the Netherlands in the 2022 World Cup Round of 16 on Saturday in Al Rayyan.

The Yanks await fitness updates of Christian Pulisic and Josh Sargent but are largely healthy, though the USA has been leaning on largely the same starters deep into all three matches.

STREAM LIVE NETHERLANDS vs USA

Louis van Gaal’s Netherlands opened the tournament with a 2-0 win over Senegal, then drew Ecuador 1-1 before blanking Qatar 2-0.

USA drew Wales 1-1 Wales before a more impressive 0-0 with England and a pivotal 1-0 win over Iran that saw Christian Pulisic injured while scoring a huge goal.

USA fullback Sergino Dest chose the USMNT over the Netherlands and will certainly be in focus Saturday on the right side (presuming he starts his fourth-straight match).

Key storylines, players to watch closely

The Netherlands are the fourth-best team in ELO Ratings and eighth in FIFA’s oft-debated rankings, while the Yanks are ranked 20th by ELO and 16th by FIFA.

So the big storyline is whether the favorites’ role affects the Dutch at all, having had that label against Ecuador, Senegal, and Qatar, and whether the Yanks can effectively channel their underdog energy again as they did against England.

The huge question, of course, is whether Christian Pulisic is 100%, 75%, or less following the pelvic contusion suffered against Iran. While Tim Weah’s been very good and fullbacks Sergino Dest and Antonee Robinson splendid, Pulisic is no doubt the focus of defenders and the U.S. attack. It’s also worth watching whether Weston McKennie finally has a game-changing performance at this tournament, as the Juventus man has been getting back to full fitness all World Cup.

The Dutch have been thrilled by the performances of 23-year-old Cody Gakpo, who has scored in every game. The back line of Virgil vsn Dijk, Jurrien Timber, and Nathan Ake has been good, allowing just one goal, while Matthijs de Ligt started the first game in place of Timber and Stefan de Vrij looms on the bench. With Frenkie de Jong in the center of the park, this Dutch team is very strong even if it isn’t vintage Holland.


Netherlands vs USA all-time

The USMNT scored a memorable win over the Dutch in 2015 under Jurgen Klinsmann, trailing 1-0 and 3-1 before winning 4-3 with goals from Danny Williams and Bobby Wood in the 89th and 90th minutes to get the win. Gyasi Zardes and John Brooks also scored in the game.

The Dutch had won all four meetings before that and all five games were friendlies occurring between 1998 and 2015.


Netherlands vs USA, World Cup history

The Dutch have never faced the USA at a World Cup, and the home of Johan Cruyff certainly has a more illustrious tournament history.

The Netherlands, like the USMNT, missed the 2018 tournament. That absence came after finishing in third place in 2014 and losing the 2010 final to Spain. They’ve lost three finals in total, two in the mid 1970s, and haven’t lost a World Cup game outside of penalties since that 1-0 loss to Spain in 2010.

The USMNT’s best tournament finish concluded with the controversial loss to Germany in the 2002 quarterfinals, but the Yanks have now reached the knockout rounds the last three times they participated in the World Cup. They’ve only won a knockout round match in 2002.

World Cup titles: 0
World Cup appearances: 10
How they qualified: Qualified automatically from UEFA (Won Group G)

Morocco looks to seal a spot in the 2022 World Cup knockout rounds when it meers eliminated Canada in Al Khor on Thursday.

The Atlas Lions opened the tournament with a 0-0 draw against returning finalists Croatia before surprising Belgium 2-0, both matches taking place in Al Khor.

STREAM LIVE CANADA vs MOROCCO

Canada felt hard done-by after missing an early penalty and losing 1-0 to Belgium, but did not validate dark horse hopes despite an early goal in its second gameI, soundly beaten 4-1 by Croatia.

Maybe leaving Al Rayyan for Al Khor will help Canada get its first World Cup result after going 0-3 in the 1986 tournament and losing both of its matches in Qatar.

Key storylines, players to watch closely

How will Canada respond to its 4-1 loss to Croatia? Superior against Belgium and essentially until Croatia equalized on Monday, John Herdman has to decide who will have the mettle to pop off the mat and challenge unbeaten Morocco. One of those faces will surely be Alphonso Davies. Who will join him? Jonathan David and Cyle Larin could use redemptive performances, to be sure.

Morocco looks very, very strong, especially out wide where Hakim Ziyech, Achraf Hakimi, and Sofiane Boufal operate the machine. A coming-out party for Sevilla’s Youssef En-Nesyri could go a long way toward stretching the Atlas Lions’ tournament well into December.
