LinkedIn England Women manager Sarina Wiegman guided the Netherlands to European Championship success on home soil in 2017 but said replicating that feat in her new role would be a much harder task.The babies were mixed up in 2002 after they were born five hours apart and placed in incubators at the San Millan de Logrono in northern Spain, due to a "one-off human error," regional health authorities said.LinkedIn LONDON: A British man has been sentenced to pay compensation and observe a curfew at weekends after pleading guilty to posting racist abuse about England players on the night of the Euro finals in July.LinkedIn WARSAW :Damian Szymanski headed in a stoppage time equaliser as Poland ended England's 100per cent record in Group I to draw their World Cup qualifier 1-1 on Wednesday.

Wiegman, who also led the Netherlands to the 2019 World Cup final, was named Phil Neville's successor last year but was allowed to remain in charge of the Dutch national team until the Tokyo Olympics.England have reached the semi-finals of their last three major tournaments and will host the Euros next July.The woman, now 19, is demanding compensation of three million euros ($3."I don't know (if the expectation) is harder, it's different.McCluskey said he had been smoking cannabis and deleted the comments after other Facebook users objected to them.I think to win the tournament itself is much harder," Wiegman, 51, told reporters."We are talking about huge damages, which will last her whole life and which will never be repaired," he said."In 2017, Germany was the most expected winner because they won it six times in a row and then the Netherlands won it.It had been an unremarkable game until the final 20 minutes with a mass scuffle on the halftime whistle the most notable incident of the first half.

But now, the countries are so close in level in Europe.The regional health chief, Sara Alba, said computer systems back then did not have as many details as they do today, and stressed that a similar mix-up could not happen again.He must do 30 days of rehabilitation and be subject to an electronically-monitored curfew for much of the weekend, for 40 weeks."As staff, we have to facilitate (things) so the players can shine.."We have not been able to determine who is to blame for this mistake," Alba said.."The CPS takes this kind of offending very seriously and this case shows that where offensive content is reported to the police we can successfully bring offenders to justice.I'm really enjoying that.We can guarantee that this will not happen again.Then came the late blow from Paulo Sousa's side as Lewandowski carved out some space for a cross from the left and Symanszki timed his jump and header perfectly.

It's the hardest step (getting beyond semi-finals) but we're very ambitious too." Wiegman also criticised world soccer governing body FIFA's proposals for a biennial World Cup, expressing concerns about visibility around the women's game and the already overwhelmed football calendar.She has also asked to remain anonymous and has so far not filed a lawsuit, he added."I think if you have a World Cup every two years that is too much for the players at the moment so I wouldn't be cheering for it right now," she said."It is about visibility but I also think we need to take care of the wellbeing of the players and sometimes they need a rest.mig/ds/jm TRENDING News18..To play against England, to score a goal, it's a dream come true," he said.

.You don't want two tournaments (men's and women's) at the same time because people are going to have to choose." Earlier this week, Wiegman named her first 25-member England squad for World Cup qualifiers against North Macedonia and Luxembourg later this month.(Reporting by Hritika Sharma in Bengaluru; Editing by Toby Davis) Source: Reuters.
