A double of Insigne classifies Naples to quarter of the Cup

first_imgNaples conquered the pass to the quarterfinals of the Italian Cup beating 2-0 at Perugia in San Paolo. It is the third triumph of the Neapolitans in almost three months in all competitions, the second of the Gattuso era. The southerners, who had a series B team in front and played at San Paolo (which is still very quiet due to the ultras’ strike), obviously dominated the confrontation, but Cosmi’s were tactically ordered and did not grant him many occasions.‘Ringhio’ made rotations and started out with Lozano instead of Callejón: the Mexican, combining with Llorente, forced the 1-0 penalty, signed by Insigne. The Neapolitan, before the break, marked another maximum penalty, this time granted by a clear hand of Iemmello: the tip of the visitors, in the discount of the first half, wasted the opportunity to put theirs back in the game, failing a penalty struck with the help of the VAR by another hand, this time from Hysaj. Ospina neutralized it, which canceled the serious mistake caused by the defeat against Lazio on Saturday. With the game already sentenced, the second part had little history, and will be remembered for the premiere of Demme, first Diego to wear the shirt azzurra since the goodbye of Maradona. I replace Fabián, who from now on will no longer play in the position of positional midfielder, in which he was never comfortable: Naples, for that role, signed the former Leipzig and Lobotka, arrival that will become official between tonight and morning. In the quarterfinals, Southerners will face the winner of Lazio-Cremonese.last_img read more

He started just nine games — finishing eight —and did nothing to cement himself as the team’s QB of thefuture. That’s not to say Kolb will never be a starting QB in theNFL — for the Cardinals or anyone else — because he’sstill young and has shown flashes. And, according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com, theCleveland Browns would likely have interest should theCards cut ties with the former Eagle in the coming days.Adding Kolb makes sense for the Browns, even though hedoesn’t provide the playmaking ability of RG3 or the samebuzz as Flynn. According to Jason LaCanfora ofNFL.com, the Cardinals are not ready to give the keysback to the 27-year-old QB just yet.The reality is Arizona is willing to walk away from him atthis point and isn’t committed to him long-term, andanything short of a huge 2012 breakthrough won’t changethat. If he does begin next season as the starter, hewon’t be on a long leash, given how the team closed underJohn Skelton. The Arizona Cardinals might sign Peyton Manning in thenext week, giving the team the elite starting QB it haslacked since Kurt Warner retired three years ago. Or, of course, they might not sign Manning, leaving themwith the same signal callers they finished last seasonwith.And while the Cards would undoubtedly talk about how muchfaith they have in both Kevin Kolb and John Skelton goingforward, reports are circulating that the team is ready topart with last year’s big investment after just oneseason.
