Inter Win As Lukaku Double Inspires Torino Comeback
Romelu Lukaku admitted that his flawed Inter Milan side still can’t be considered a great team after his double helped to complete a thrilling second half comeback from two goals down to beat Torino 4-2 on Sunday, ending a four-match winless run in all competitions.Simone Zaza struck late in the first half to give the visitors a deserved lead, and Cristian Ansaldi doubled their advantage from the penalty spot after the break.A hitherto limp Inter performance was sparked to life by the goal and Alexis Sanchez and Lukaku both scored within five minutes of the spot kick to draw the hosts level.Th...
Chelsea boss Lampard admits 'patchy' performance for win at Newcastle
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was happy with the points at Newcastle United.Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham struck the goals for the visitors in the 2-0 win.Lampard admitted: "I thought the first 20 minutes we were great because we had control and we had penetration. We had people running in behind, we were getting in sight and making crosses. I think sometimes the danger of that sort of control is it becomes comfort, which is dangerous and we then turned it over a couple of times."So that was the message at half-time. They came out more positive in the second half and I always felt the real danger...

WELLINGTON: The New Zealand government promised Wednesday to take action against backpackers relieving themselves at natural beauty spots as part of post-coronavirus tourism plans.Kiwis have long complained about so-called “freedom campers” who travel the country in campervans that do not have toilet facilities and leave human waste by the side of the road.Tourism Minister Stuart Nash said the practice did not fit New Zealand’s “100% pure” image and that international visitors could expect changes when borders eventually reopen.“They need to buy into our sustainability brand and what we stand ...

St. Augustine Fountain of Youth may be Florida's oldest attraction
Long before Florida became the country’s 27th state, the Timucua people and Spanish explorers inhabited St. Augustine, specifically the site of what’s likely the Sunshine State’s oldest attraction.The Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park contains centuries of history on its 15 acres and sign-ins from visitors dating back to 1868. It’s a place where “legend meets history,” as one historian wrote, and modern-day visitors can drink from the same spring that Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon likely did.It’d be wrong to classify the St. Augustine stop as merely a theme park, an attraction or a h...
