Colorado Rapids goalkeeper Tim Howard has issued his first public response since being hit with a three-game suspension for altercations with fans in his team's 31 loss to Sporting Kansas City on April 9. In announcing the suspension a week ago, Major League Soccer pointed to two incidents: A profane verbal interaction with a fan that took place during the game, and a physical confrontation with another fan after it was over. In a Facebook post published on Friday, Howard accepted blame for his actions but also criticized the fans' behavior and the stadium security's efforts at keeping said fan under control.
Eden Hazard’s 75th-minute strike won it for the Blues, who earned a return trip to Wembley for the May 27 final against the winner of Sunday’s semifinal between Arsenal and Manchester City. The highlight of the game came from Nemanja Matic, the Chelsea defensive midfielder who had not scored all season until he hammered home the clinching goal in the 80th minute. You cannot strike a ball any better than Nemanja Matic just did.
