    Handanovic blunder costs Udinese

    Genoa dominated from the off against Udinese, but needed a seconf half comeback and some help from Slovenian keeper Handanovic, to get the three points.

    Alberto Gilardino should have done better when put clean through but he slipped and then from the ground could not beat Samir Handanovic. The Slovenia goalkeeper had to be at his athletic best to beat out a curling effort from Alexander Merkel.

    Udinese took the lead on 14 minutes when Damiano Ferronetti headed home Pablo Armero’s corner.

    The game was turned on its headed within 60 seconds at the start of the second half. Handanovic spilled Bosko Jankovic’s free-kick and Andreas Granqvist was quickest to the rebound to prod home.

    Moments later Jankovic met Kevin Constant’s left-wing cross with a drilled volley that gave Handanovic no chance. Genoa extended their lead as Rodrigo Palacio finished crisply after a mistake by Joel Elkstrand.

    But 15-minutes from time, the hosts’ captain Marco Rossi was dismissed for bringing down his Udinese counterpart Antonio Di Natale in the box.

    “We didn’t deserve to lose. It was a great game but we just had three minutes of black-out at the start of the second half,” said Udinese coach Francesco Guidolin. “Our first half was one of the best in the last 18 months away from home. Now we just have to roll up our sleeves and get back on track. I’m staying calm.”

    PSV qualified for the semi-finals, Matavz on target

    PSV qualified for the semi-finals of the Dutch Cup following a 3-2 win over NEC at Philips Stadion on Thursday.

    All the goals came in the first half, with Dries Mertens opening the scoring for hosts PSV after five minutes.
    Nick van der Velden restored parity 10 minutes later, but 23 year old Slovenian Tim Matavz and Kevin Strootman struck in the space of two minutes to put Fred Rutten's side in control.

    Lasse Schone pegged one back in first-half stoppage time to give NEC the momentum ahead of the second half.

    Both sides created plenty of chances after the break, but were unable to score in the remainder of the game.

    Matavz has been in great form this season for PSV, scoring 12 goals in 22 games in all competitions for the Dutch club.

    Maybe I should add here;

    Slovenian Abroad Milivoje Novakovic scored his NT single goal victory vs Switzerland 1-0 at the minute79… UERO 2016 Qualify group game.

    And,he seems continue to how great form , today he just scored 2 goal in this first half of the Lithuania vs Slovenia EURO 2016 qualify group game.

    Maybe he could find third goal in the second half :)
    What a professional lad he is.In this age he keeps score.
