Emily Gielnik talks keeping sharp in Europe and rising with the Matildas

Sophie Lawson | A Melbourne native who’s been playing for Brisbane since 2009, Emily Gielnik has been making herself known to audience across the world since she was a teenager, the rangy attacker having plied her trade in England, Canada, Japan and most recently Norway with Avaldsnes during the summer months in the northern hemisphere. An Australian international who’s keen to stay sharp and continue her footballing development, we caught up with Gielnik at the end of the Toppserien season, moments after the 25-year-old had helped Avaldsnes win their first Norwegian cup. As anyone who’s ever been in Norway in the winter has said, “it’s cold, I’m cold.” With the Norwegian league running from April to the start of November, Gielnik has been exposed to temperatures well below what most Aussies can deal with, the first word out of the attacker’s mouth when asked about adjusting to the Scandinavian league, “Cold.” She continued, “It different to Australia, that’s...

Jürgen Klopp: Liverpool's Adam Lallana "knocking on the door" for first appearance

Charlie Malam | Jürgen Klopp believes Adam Lallana is "nearer and nearer" to full fitness and Liverpool's starting line-up after travelling with their 23-man squad to Sevilla. The Reds can seal their place in the Champions League knockout stages with a win in Spain, though defeat could end their hopes of topping Group E and potentially earning an easier last-16 draw. And midfielder Lallana could make his first appearance of the season after being included in the contingent that has made the trip to Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium. The England international has been kept out by a thigh injury since early August but Klopp has confirmed that he is approaching his peak level of sharpness.
