MILAN -- Napoli was again made to count the cost of missed opportunities as it was held 1-1 by Sassuolo in Serie A on Monday. Myles Garrett Jersey .We should have killed the game off, when I saw two, three lost chances in the area when we were 1-0 up, I got angry, Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri said. Were not in a bad patch but in a period where the results dont match our performances.Tonight the team put on a very high-level performance, but we sat back when we could have killed off the game. In that the team showed themselves to be teenagers and not adults, also because as soon as they equalized we again started to press, with the same attitude again that we should have also had at 1-0 up.Lorenzo Insigne fired the hosts in front three minutes from the break, cutting inside and curling in under the crossbar. The ball went in with the aid of a slight deflection off former Napoli defender Paolo Cannavaro -- who had been given a warm welcome by the Partenopei fans at the start of the match.It was Insignes third goal in two matches.Napoli has struggled to score goals with Arkadiusz Milik sidelined until at least February after tearing a cruciate ligament in his left knee in October.We miss him, but I think almost every team in the league would miss a player like him, Sarri said.Milik was signed to replace Gonzalo Higuain, who transferred to Juventus for an Italian-record 90 million euros ($100 million) after breaking a 66-year-old Serie A record with 36 goals for Napoli last season.Napoli again failed to close out the match, wasting several chances to do so, and paid the price when substitute Gregoire Defrel powerfully volleyed home Marcello Gazzolas cross to equalize eight minutes from time.The home side almost snatched a late win but Jose Callejon hit the right post in stoppages.Sassuolo had also hit the woodwork, with Simone Missirolis header coming off the crossbar shortly after the hour.Napoli remained seventh, four points behind second-placed Roma and AC Milan, and eight points behind league leader Juventus.Sassuolo, which became the first side to field an all-Italian starting 11, stayed 16th.---INTER MILAN 4, FIORENTINA 2Inter Milan almost let another commanding lead slip but held on for a first victory under new coach Stefano Pioli, piling more pressure onto Fiorentina counterpart Paulo Sousa.Inter scored three goals in the opening 19 minutes.We have shown that we can do important things, Pioli said. When we slow down we get in difficulty ... I saw a lot of positive things, and so many other things that we need to work on.I think the squad has the qualities to play a certain type of football, we didnt manage the ball well in the second half. We want to control matches. The idea is to win them. Now we have to immediately think about the next match against Napoli.Inter took the lead with less than three minutes on the clock after Fiorentina defender Gonzalo Rodriguez attempted to clear Cristian Ansaldis cross but it fell to Marcelo Brozovic, who smashed it into the back of the net.Fiorentina goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu could only parry Ivan Perisics low cross six minutes later and Antonio Candreva slotted in the rebound from six yards.Mauro Icardi scored a magnificent third, turning Gonzalo and dribbling past Davide Astori before firing past Tatarusanu.Inter had let a two-goal lead slip in Thursdays 3-2 defeat to Hapoel Beer-Sheva and there were fears of a similar collapse when Nikola Kalinic got in front of Danilo DAmbrosio to reduce the deficit.However, any hopes Fiorentina had of pulling off an astonishing comeback diminished when Gonzalo was controversially sent off for barging over Icardi.Despite the numerical disadvantage, Fiorentina got back into the match on the hour as Josip Ilicic finished off a counterattack.Icardi sealed matters in stoppage time, with his 12th goal of the season, moving him level with Roma forward Edin Dzeko at the top of the goalscoring charts.Inter moved into eighth place, a point above Fiorentina.Last week Fiorentina fans hung banners on the gates of the stadium calling for Sousa to resign. Zane Gonzalez Jersey . -- Al Jefferson found a groove just in time for the Charlotte Bobcats. David Njoku Jersey . After Gasquet beat fifth-seeded Ivan Dodig of Croatia 7-5, 6-3, Tsonga followed up with a 6-7 (3), 6-2, 6-2 win against sixth-seeded Edouard Roger-Vasselin in an all-French match. . Rinne played two periods in his first game since left hip surgery in early May. Gabriel Bourque scored 3:07 into the second period and Austin Watson tallied 5:15 later for Nashville.BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Sabres owner Terry Pegula wants to keep goalie Ryan Miller and forward Thomas Vanek in Buffalo beyond next season, while acknowledging both players will have a say in determining their futures. "Yes, we want them here," Pegula told the Sabres-controlled segment broadcast on Buffalos WGR-Radio on Tuesday. "I can tell the fans Im concerned, too. ... They have a say in that decision. What that decision is? No ones been re-signed. So were still working." Miller and Vanek futures are uncertain with both entering the final year of their contracts. They represent essentially whats left of the Sabres veteran core after the team elected to rebuild its under-performing roster with youth and stockpiling draft picks over the past year. Vanek, Buffalos top offensive threat, has gone as far as to say that he isnt interested in staying in Buffalo if the team is planning on a lengthy rebuilding process. In response to Pegulas comments, Vaneks agent, Steve Bartlett said its premature to discuss his clients long-term future. Bartlett said, hes had no talks with the Sabres, which he doesnt consider unusual because NHL rules prevent the team from signing Vanek to a contract extension until next month. "From our standpoint, theres no animosity and no demands. This is nothing Thomas and I have spent a lot of time talking about," Bartlett said. "Were not coming at this any more positively or negatively." The Sabres have declined interview requests for Pegula, who had not spoken publicly in two months. Media-shy to begin with, the Pennsylvania billionaire has grown even more reluctant to grant interviews in the face of growing criticism regarding his under-achieving franchise and his decision to retain general manager Darcy Regier. The Sabres have missed the playoffs in each of the past two seasons, four of the past six years, and not won a playoff series since 2007. Pegula defended Regier, calling him "a very qualified person." "When you look at the history, even with the Sabres, whats he done wrong?" Peegula asked with a laugh. Myles Garrett Youth Jersey. "Help me out here." Regier has overseen the teams youth movement, a process that will continue in the NHL draft on June 30, when the Sabres open with two first-round picks, Nos. 8 and 16. The team has expressed an interest to move up further in the draft to land one of the top-three prospects. Before saying he had no intention of criticizing the teams previous owner, Tom Golisano, Pegula said Regier might have faced financial limits in re-signing players and building the team. "Maybe someone was holding the painters hand while he was doing the painting, I dont know," Pegula said. "I have a different management style. And Darcy has a chance to flourish under our management style. ... Im giving him more latitude in the way we operate the team with less financial restrictions." Pegula has taken a free-spending approach since completing his purchase of the Sabres in February 2011. In Pegulas first six months, the Sabres committed more than $140 million in salary to adding free agents and re-signing players. Pegula joked that some fellow NHL owners might not agree with his open-wallet approach. "You might talk to some of the other owners around the league and theyll tell you, Whos this new owner? What is he crazy," Pegula asked. "But its my style. So Im going to do things my way." Pegula also backed Regiers decision in promoting Ron Rolston to take over as head coach without conducting a search last month. Pegula said, Rolston had earned the job in closing the season as the interim coach after Lindy Ruff was fired in February, following Buffalos 6-10-1 start. Pegula noted Rolston went 15-11-5 and had the Sabres in playoff contention entering the final week of the season even after the team dealt three core players, including captain Jason Pominville, in separate moves leading up to the trading deadline. "Ron didnt give us much choice last year," Pegula said. "You take away some of his good players and then, by the way, he does pretty well." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
