Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus vividly remembers watching the 1995 Rugby World Cup final.He was just 22 years old at the time and just finding his feet in what would prove to be a hugely successful professional rugby career that saw him earn 36 Test caps for the Boks between 1997 and 2001.Now, all these years later, Erasmus is on the verge of etching his name in the history books by guiding the Boks to their third Webb Ellis Cup.The Boks take on England on Saturday in the tournament final, and the excitement in South Africa is reaching new heights this week.Erasmus knows exactly how much a win would mean to the public back home and on Thursday he remembered looking on as Francois Pienaar and his side made history in 1995.“In ’95, I was a student in Bloemfontein, and we were staying on the rugby fields there by the university grounds,” he recalled.“I was sharing a house with Naka Drotské, who was playing in the World Cup final.“We were all watching the game at the university rugby grounds, which is where I was in 1995.“We all know what impact that had for our country and should we win it on Saturday. It has already had a big impact for us.“We do have some challenges in our country at different levels and at different avenues.“But rugby is one of the things that – for a few minutes and sometimes a few hours, days and months if we win – people seem to forget about their disagreements for a while, and agree.“What we experienced from 2007 and 1995, they then agree for a long while, and you can fix a lot of things in that time. In South Africa, we need that, and we can feel that.“That is definitely for us an extra motivation for Saturday, that we know we are trying to win for us 23 (players), but that is the last thing whom we are trying to win for.“We are trying to win for South Africa, and not just because they are supporters, but because our country needs a lot of things that we want to fix, and we want to help fix that.”For more news your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.

Neither Liverpool nor Leicester have tasted victory in any competition this month, so both Jurgen Klopp and Craig Shakespeare will be going all out for a win in the third round of the League Cup tonight.Here, Unibet break down Opta data to try to predict potential outcomes.Liverpool have won six of their last 10 meetings with Leicester in all competitionsEven during Leicester’s title winning season, Liverpool caused the Foxes problems. The Reds were one of only two sides to beat Leicester in 2015/16, winning 1-0 at Anfield. Leicester won the reverse fixture 2-0; they also beat Liverpool at home last term with a 3-1 victory at the King Power Stadium. Generally, however, the Merseysiders have overpowered Leicester in recent years with six wins and a draw in the last 10 encounters, all in the Premier League. Liverpool scored 15 goals and conceded just four across those six victories.Liverpool Are Favourites To Win At 19/20The sides have met just once before in the League CupThe only previous League Cup meeting between Leicester and Liverpool came at Anfield in the third round in October 1986. The hosts won 4-1, the very same scoreline as the most recent encounter between the sides at Anfield in the Premier League last season. Liverpool went on to lose the League Cup final to Arsenal that year, one of four times they’ve been runners-up in the competition. Their most recent League Cup final defeat came in 2015/16, losing to Manchester City. By comparison, Leicester have been runners-up twice.Leicester Can Be Backed At 14/5 To WinLiverpool have won the League Cup eight times, more than any other clubEight League Cup wins make Liverpool the most successful club in the history of the competition. They’ve won it three more times than anyone else; Manchester United, Aston Villa and Chelsea have all lifted the trophy on five occasions. Leicester also have a very respectable record in the competition: only the four aforementioned clubs plus Tottenham, Nottingham Forest and Manchester City have won it more times than the Foxes (3). This year they’ll be aiming to reach their sixth League Cup final, and their first since they won it in 2000.Liverpool Are 10/1 To Win The Competition; Leicester Are 30/1Jurgen Klopp’s side have conceded nine goals in three away games so far this seasonLiverpool have kept two clean sheets at home this term but are yet to keep one away, conceding nine goals on the road in all competitions. The Reds conceded three on the opening day of the Premier League at Watford before their 2-1 Champions League qualifying win in Hoffenheim, and Manchester City put five past them earlier this month. Klopp has received criticism for failing to recruit a new centre-back over the summer when it became clear Virgil van Dijk wasn’t a viable option. Will Leicester become the latest team to take advantage of Liverpool’s shaky defence?Over 2.5 Away Goals Can Be Backed At 13/5Jamie Vardy has scored five goals in his last three appearances against LiverpoolIslam Slimani was the two-goal star in Leicester’s 4-1 win at Sheffield United in the previous round, but the hosts might call on their top scorer Jamie Vardy to lead the line against Liverpool. The striker beat Simon Mignolet twice at the King Power in the Premier League last season in Shakespeare’s first match in charge. He did the same in the previous campaign’s corresponding fixture. Vardy’s penalty at Huddersfield on Saturday was his second goal in as many games; he could score in three successive matches for the first time since April.Vardy Is 6/1 To Open The ScoringYou can listen to live commentary of Leicester City v Liverpool tonight from 7pm on talkSPORT 2 1 Will Liverpool or Leicester come out on top this evening?
Man Utd willing to use Pereira in talks for Fiorentina defender Milenkovicby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United are willing to use Andreas Pereira as a bargaining chip in talks for Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic.La Nazione says Pereira could be on his way out of United as part of a deal to bring Fiorentina’s Milenkovic to the club.Reports in Italy claim United will use Pereira as a makeweight in a deal to tempt Fiorentina to part with Milenkovic.United are long-term admirers of the Serbian, and are prepared to let Pereira go in order to land their target.Milenkovic , 21, has 10 caps for Serbia on top of his 79 senior appearances at club level for Partizan Belgrade and Fiorentina.And Pereira could be used to lure Milenkovic to Old Trafford as United continue their search for a centre-back.
