” 1 Celta Vigo striker Nolito Celta Vigo striker Nolito says he is happy at the Spanish club after a hat-trick against Everton sparked rumours of a transfer to Goodison Park. Roberto Martinez’s side went ahead in the friendly between the two sides last week, thanks to an Aiden McGeady strike.
But the 27-year-old replied with three goals inside 27 first-half minutes to earn his side an impressive win. “I don’t know about any offers,” he said at a press conference. “I knew that would be the first question! “I’m happy here, I still have three years left on this contract and the only thing I can say is that my thoughts are to be here for many years. “These days I have not talked to my agent because I have nothing to talk to him about. I am happy here and my family too, so when things go well there is no reason to change.” ” ” Nick Easter will skipper England against Samoa on Saturday after Martin Johnson made four changes to the side that beat Australia last weekend.
Johnson has opted to rest regular captain Lewis Moody following the memorable 35-18 win over the Wallabies and hand Leeds’ South African-born flanker Hendre Fourie his first Test start. Easter has captained England twice in non-cap internationals against the Barbarians in 2008 but it will be the first time he has led his country in a Test match. The other changes see Matt Banahan replacing Mike Tindall at outside centre, while blindside flanker James Haskell and tight-head prop David Wilson will also start, with Tom Croft and Dan Cole dropping to the bench.1xbet.footballresultstoday.org/ England team to play Samoa: B Foden (Northampton); C Ashton (Northampton), M Banahan (Bath), S Hape (Bath), M Cueto (Sale); T Flood (Leicester), B Youngs (Leicester); A Sheridan (Sale), D Hartley (Northampton), D Wilson (Bath), C Lawes (Northampton), T Palmer (Stade Francais), J Haskell (Stade Francais), H Fourie (Leeds), N Easter (Harlequins, capt) Replacements: S Thompson (Leeds), D Cole (Leicester), D Attwood (Gloucester), T Croft (Leicester), D Care (Harlequins), C Hodgson (Sale), D Armitage (London Irish) “
