“But he’s definitely in a better place in terms of his form and how he looks. He’s smiling and seems happy, which is fantastic for everyone connected with Rangers.” Image:Morelos has scored 84 goals in just 154 games for Rangers Steven Gerrard says Alfredo Morelos is gunning for the Champions League after the Rangers record-breaker rediscovered his hunger for goals.The Colombian has had a lean start to the campaign but two strikes in his last two Europa League outings have seen him move past Ibrox great Ally McCoist to become the club’s all-time top scorer in continental competition with 22 goals.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – – Advertisement – All those goals have come in UEFA’s second-tier tournament but Gerrard knows the 24-year-old has ambitions to go even higher.He said: “Yes, he was very happy after the game about his record-breaking (achievement). I think he’s got his hunger back and you can see it in his eyes, he wants to go and score more goals in the competition.“I know he’s got dreams and aspirations of playing in the Champions League one day, which is good for him.” Morelos became the first player to reach double figures in the Europa League for Rangers with his goal against Benfica, and he has now netted 84 times in just 154 games for the club.Gerrard added: “In terms of where he’s at, the goals are back, the hunger is back, the sharpness is back.“I don’t really like comparing him to (the Alfredo) of old because it’s about the now and what he is offering moving forward.- Advertisement –
(REUTERS) – England have not picked uncapped all-rounder Jofra Archer in a preliminary 15-man World Cup squad but have named him in squads for the warm-up games against Pakistan and Ireland.Barbados-born Archer, who shone for Sussex last season and in Australia’s Big Bash Twenty20 competition for Hobart Hurricanes, is eligible for national selection under new England and Wales Cricket Board residency rules.The 24-year-old could get a World Cup call-up if he impresses in the warm-up games as changes can be made to the squad until May 23, seven days before their tournament opener against South Africa at The Oval. Joe Denly, whose last ODI appearance came in October 2009, retained his place in the World Cup group as a backup spinning all-rounder.Although, he could be among the pool of players, including Liam Plunkett and Tom Curran, who will feel the pressure if Archer performs well over the next few weeks.Archer’s ability to bowl at more than 90 miles per hour and his lower-order power-hitting skills have earned him a number of high-profile admirers, including England regulars Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler. “The selection panel has been impressed with Jofra Archer’s performances in domestic and franchise cricket. He is a very talented and exciting cricketer,” national selector Ed Smith said.England play Ireland in a one-dayer on May 3 before a five-match ODI series and a Twenty20 against Pakistan. “In line with ICC (International Cricket Council) regulations, we have to name a preliminary squad of 15 for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup before April 23,” Smith added.“However, all 17 players named in the ODIs against Pakistan can stake a claim to be in the final 15-man squad, to be finalised at the end of that series.” Fast bowler Chris Jordan, Archer’s Sussex team mate, could also make a comeback to the ODI setup against Pakistan, despite playing his last 50-overs game for England in September 2016.“Chris Jordan, a regular in IT20 squads over the past few years, has continued to develop as a cricketer – as we saw in the IT20s in the West Indies. He fully deserves his return to the ODI squad,” Smith said. “With regard to resting players, we are conscious of managing player workloads leading into such an important summer so that players are in the best possible condition for the World Cup. That was also a factor in the way we have selected these three squads.”England’s World Cup squad: Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler (wicketkeeper), Tom Curran, Joe Denly, Alex Hales, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood. England squad for Pakistan ODI series: Eoin Morgan, Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Tom Curran, Joe Denly, Chris Jordan, Alex Hales, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood. England squad for Ireland ODI and Pakistan T20: Eoin Morgan, Jofra Archer, Sam Billings, Tom Curran, Joe Denly, Chris Jordan, Alex Hales, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, James Vince, David Willey, Mark Wood.
