The 37 year old FIFA legend and his feat on the game has continued to attract attention. Wycombe Wanderers striker has not only become a master of the popular video game but has also effectively combined with his game on the pitch with Wycombe Wanderers standing as the 15th club he has played for since he began senior career with Lithuanian side FK Atlantas in 2001. Brothers Francisco and Frenzel Gamez flew over to England to watch the club’s game against Tranmere Rovers on Saturday and the duo were given a brilliant welcome by the Choirboys. They were given a tour of Adams Park and met the team, including Akinfenwa, ahead of kick-off and then watched Gareth Ainsworth’s men beat Tranmere 3-1, with Akinfenwa getting the second goal. After the match, they were treated to dinner with the players and, in turn, gifted them a miniature mariachi hat to bring them luck for the rest of the campaign. Speaking to the Bucks Free Press , Frenzel explained why they made the trip, saying: “We decided to plan this trip because my brother plays FIFA and we saw the team Wycombe. Loading… “We then see Akinfenwa, he then saw that he is a beast. We Googled him and saw his followers on Instagram and we thought he was amazing. “We then started to follow the team as we became fans, so that is why we decided to come to the game today [Saturday]. “We started to plan this trip to Wycombe about three months ago, but my brother wanted to see Wycombe play from about a year ago. “But with money and other stuff, we couldn’t do it but after a while, my brother went a bit crazy and he said, ‘We need to see Akinfenwa!’ “This is because he could retire soon, and we wanted to see him play live. Brothers Francisco and Frenzel Gamez made the journey from Mexico to watch Wycombe Wanderers play Tranmere Rovers “It was our first time in Wycombe and it was incredible. And we were really happy when Akinfenwa scored – it was a dream come true. “There was drama at 1-1 and when we scored to make it 2-1, it was perfect. There was intensity and Akinfenwa made the difference – it was amazing.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享

Hull captain Robert Koren and defender James Chester are recovering well from injuries and could be back sooner than expected. “With injuries, it isn’t always black and white and you have to see how people progress,” Price told the Tigers’ official website. “When we say it could be eight weeks, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it will be eight weeks because we always hope we can get them back a little bit quicker than that. “Robert is doing particularly well with his rehab and we’re hopeful that within the next three weeks he could be back out there with the team. “Robert hasn’t had a day off since he got the injury and he’s using this time as an opportunity to work on other parts of his body like his strength and his core. He’s also helping out the other players during their training sessions and being one of our senior pros, he’s also passing on plenty of advice. “With James, he has some damage to one of his hamstring tendons and you have to really give that a couple of weeks to settle down for it to start to form some scar tissue before we can start loading him. “But he’s doing well in the early stages of his rehab and again, he’s also working on some other areas. Hopefully in around 10 days we’ll be able to start pushing him a little bit more.” Manager Steve Bruce initially suggested Koren (fractured foot) and Chester (hamstring) would be ruled out for eight weeks each, a lay-off that would see both men absent until at least the middle of November. But the club’s head of medical services, Rob Price, offered an upbeat assessment on the duo. Press Association
As the Big East enters the halfway point of conference play, fans are beginning to forget the catastrophe that was the conference’s performance against out-of-conference teams. Now every team is seemingly beating up on each other in a conference race that still has a long way to go. Pitt is the odds-on favorite to get to the BCS bowl game. After that, Syracuse and West Virginia appear to be battling for a trip to Orlando, Fla. And the teams in the middle of the Big East pack are hoping Notre Dame doesn’t get to seven wins so they all can ultimately go bowling. Here is an early look from The Daily Orange into how it will shake down come the holidays:AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Jan. 1: Fiesta Bowl, Glendale, Ariz.: Pittsburgh — Big East Champion Who would have thought before the season began that the game at the Carrier Dome between Syracuse and Pittsburgh would be the pseudo-Big East championship game? With the home game for West Virginia in this year’s edition of the Backyard Brawl, the Panthers will cruise into a slot in a BCS game. The most likely destination for a team that will be ranked between No. 15 and No. 20: Fiesta over Orange. Dec. 28: Champs Sports Bowl, Orlando, Fla.: Syracuse — No. 2 Big East Syracuse won’t win out. But even if the Orange does, it will not be enough for a BCS game. Pitt won’t lose two games. West Virginia has a much tougher Big East schedule the rest of the way than the Orange. With just one WVU loss, SU should feel comfortable that they will get to Orlando, even if there is a long way to go. Dec. 31: Meineke Car Care Bowl, Charlotte, N.C.: West Virginia — No. 3 Big East It’s an uphill battle for the Mountaineers back to a BCS bowl. The good news is they can still defeat Pitt and have a legitimate shot to get there. The bad news is that game is at Heinz Field. The even worse news is that if Notre Dame gets to seven wins, WVU will have to settle for the Big East’s fourth bowl, which would be a supreme failure. Dec. 30: Pinstripe Bowl, New York City: Rutgers — No. 4 Big East It seems like every year Rutgers somehow slips into a solid bowl game after a dull season, making a trip to a bowl that is much more worthy than the team itself. For some reason, I think it’s going to happen again this year. And it will be the ideal situation for Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano, as the Scarlet Knights will be slotted to stay home at Yankee Stadium, thanks to a tie with the other two 6-6 Big East teams. Dec. 21: Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl, St. Petersburg, Fla.: South Florida — No. 5 Big East Speaking of staying home, if USF, Rutgers and Louisville all beat up on each other in the middle pack of the Big East, USF won’t have to travel anywhere. Skip Holtz will be content with that in his first year. Jan. 8: Birmingham Bowl, Birmingham, Ala.: Louisville — No. 6 Big East As the least appealing team in the New York City and Tampa markets, Louisville will stay down south. The main team Charlie Strong should be worried about for a bowl bid is Utah. If the Utes slip up versus Notre Dame, UL will be the team left out of the selection process, thanks to the two hometown hosts for Rutgers and USF, as Notre Dame needs seven wins to steal one of conference’s bowl slots. firstname.lastname@example.org Jan. 1: Fiesta Bowl, Glendale, Ariz.: Pittsburgh — Big East Champion The Backyard Brawl will likely determine the winner of the Big East, and I see Pitt defeating West Virginia in Pittsburgh. Even if Pitt loses to any conference team not named WVU, it appears it will still claim the top spot in the conference. Two losses in-conference and the league is suddenly wide open. Dec. 28: Champs Sports Bowl, Orlando, Fla.: Syracuse — No. 2 Big East If Syracuse wins out, this would be a worst-case scenario. Doug Marrone referred to a bowl talk as a ‘four-letter word,’ but I’m guessing SU’s place in the Big East standings is something that plays on his mind. A loss this weekend would obviously be a hit but not necessarily a major setback. Dec. 31: Meineke Car Care Bowl, Charlotte, N.C.: West Virginia — No. 3 Big East West Virginia may still finish No. 1 or No. 2 in the conference, despite a loss last weekend. WVU needs to win out and hope SU falls at least one more time to claim the top spot. But the thinking here is that the Mountaineers will lose at least one more game and finish No. 3 in the conference. Dec. 30: Pinstripe Bowl, New York City: South Florida — No. 4 Big East Though SU fans might like to see the Orange in the first ever bowl hosted at the new Yankee Stadium, finishing No. 4 would obviously be a step back from its current ranking. Still, can you imagine all the Syracuse support at that potential game? I see USF landing here, especially after taking down Cincy. Dec. 21: Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl, St. Petersburg, Fla.: Cincinnati — No. 5 Big East Just one year removed from running the table in the Big East, Cincinnati has had much different results this year. Quarterback Zach Collaros might be out this weekend and beyond, which doesn’t bode well for a team that has struggled even with him in the lineup. Jan. 8: Birmingham Bowl, Birmingham, Ala.: Rutgers — No. 6 Big East Grabbing the final spot is the Scarlet Knights, which has been up and down this season. Connecticut and Louisville both have a legitimate chance of becoming bowl-eligible but have not played nearly consistent enough to finish any higher than No. 6. email@example.com REBUTTAL: Andrew L.
