Soccer-Calhanoglu scores as Inter Milan sink Barcelona

(Reuters) -Inter Milan bounced back after two consecutive losses in Serie A with a crucial Champions League 1-0 win against Barcelona on Tuesday thanks to a Hakan Calhanoglu goal.

The Turkish midfielder slotted home a clinical strike from just outside the area, with the ball going into the corner to the goalkeeper’s right in added time before the break.Tomori joined Milan from the London club in June last year after impressing in a loan spell and played a key role as they won their first league title in 11 years last season.View of the island of Bhasan Char in the Bay of Bengal, Bangladesh February 14, 2018.03-10- 2022 10:55 AM A riot police officer fires tear gas after the football match between Arema vs Persebaya at Kanjuruhan Stadium, Malang, East Java province, Indonesia, October 1, 2022 - REUTERSPIX MALANG : Seventeen children were among at least 125 people killed in a soccer stampede in Indonesia at the weekend, officials said, as pressure builds on the Southeast Asian nation to explain how one of the world’s worst stadium disasters unfolded.

The home win lifted Inter to second place in Group C on six points, three behind leaders Bayern Munich and three in front of Barcelona.Inter and Barca will face each other again next week at the Camp Nou when a third loss in four games would leave Barca in danger of being knocked out of the Champions League at the group stage for the second consecutive season."Obviously coming from Chelsea and being English, there's probably that added motivation.Inter came into the match having lost four of their previous six games in all competitions and are ninth in Serie A, four points from the European qualification spots and eight behind leaders Napoli and Atalanta.“We have rescued 39 people including 35 Rohingya refugees and four Bangladeshis,“ coast guard spokesman Lieutenant Al Amin told AFP.Barcelona, by contrast, arrived as the new LaLiga leaders and with striker Robert Lewandowski on a roll, having scored in six consecutive LaLiga match weeks..But the Polish star forward made no impression at the San Siro, ending with no shots on target, having been neutralized by Inter’s five-man defence.“Seventeen children died and seven were treated, but there is a possibility that could increase,“ said Nahar, a ministry official.

In the 24th minute, Barcelona got a break when a potential penalty for a handball by Eric Garcia inside the box was ruled out by the VAR check which spotted a close offside in the build-up.I know people have watched the Milan games but going back to Stamford Bridge where it all kind of started, it's another chance to show myself again.The rescue operation is still going,“ he told AFP.Inter Milan had a Joaquin Correa goal ruled out in the very next play for another offside.However, they manage to break the deadlock at the end of the first half with Calhanoglu's precise, low shot."I've still got some stuff to do to get myself in the frame to be there for the World Cup, so hopefully I can do that," he said.Ousmane Dembele was the lone bright spot for Barcelona up front, creating the few opportunities that Barcelona had despite dominating the ball possession.Dire conditions in the camps prompt hundreds each year to pay smugglers for passage along the dangerous sea route to Malaysia, which is home to a large Rohingya diaspora.The French winger had two cross-shots that went just wide in the first half and thundered a close-range shot off the right post midway through the second half."

Dembele kept insisting until he placed a perfect cross in Pedri's path but Barca’s potential equaliser was ruled out after the VAR check spotted a handball by Ansu Fati right before Pedri’s strike.Barca pressed with long balls and crosses in the final minutes.Their players clamoured for a penalty in added time, complaining about a possible handball inside the box by substitute Denzel Dumfries.But after a VAR check the referee ruled there had been no infringement by the Dutch defender."I'm really angry, I just can't understand how that is not a penalty; it's clear.

It's an injustice," a frustrated Xavi Hernandez told Movistar Plus."That's why I said yesterday (at the news conference) that the referees should come out and explain their decisions, because we don't understand anything." (Reporting by Fernando Kallas; editing by Clare Fallon) Article type: free.
