If Luis Enrique’s men are able to complete that remarkable comeback and progress to the final then it is possible there could be issues with Messi and Neymar – who both have proceedings surrounding tax evasion ongoing – gaining entry to the country.UEFA President, Aleksander Ceferin, who warned Brexit could damage Great Britain’s hopes of hosting major tournaments, yesterday expressed his worries with the rule.Ceferin’s concerns were sparked by the refusal to allow PSG defender Serge Aurier who was appealing a conviction for assault into the UK during the French team’s group stage clash with Arsenal last November.Wembley is to play host to the semi-finals and the final of Euro 2020 and, while Ceferin and UEFA are committed to those games being held in London, he believes Brexit may stymie any hopes Britain has of hosting either Euro 2028 or the 2030 World Cup – with England’s Football Association having expressed an interest in both competitions.“If ‘Brexit’ happens, everything changes,” Ceferin told The New York Times. “But football was played before, and it will be played in the future. Now, with free movement in the European Union, it is much better.“I was very disappointed when Aurier, from PSG, was not allowed to enter England.“That will worsen when Brexit happens, especially if the reasons were as formal. We could have a serious problem.“If we see that players cannot enter because they have any sort of procedure ongoing, then we will simply think if we should play our European matches there.“Neymar and Lionel Messi both have (tax evasion) procedures going on. This year, the Champions League final is in Cardiff. Imagine if they did not let them in.“That is a big thing for us, if players from England can travel anywhere but players from other teams cannot travel to England. With free movement in Europe, it is much better.“Even in 2020, if Brexit has happened, then it can be a big problem for fans. That stays firm, and we will speak to the British government, and I am sure the English Football Association will help us.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUELionel Messi and Neymar may not be allowed to enter the United Kingdom for this year’s Champions League final if their Spanish team, Barcelona, makes it to the last match.First, Barcelona will need to turn around a 4-0 last-16 first-leg deficit to Paris Saint-Germain to keep their hopes of playing in the final alive. Cardiff’s Principality Stadium is scheduled to host the final on June 6.

Mikel Arteta’s penalty secured a third consecutive Premier League victory for Arsenal for the first time since March.Arouna Kone wasted the Latics’ best chance when he broke clear but failed to hit the target in the first-half.Arteta scored from the spot just before the hour after Jean Beausejour was penalised for a challenge on Theo Walcott, who again played as a striker.Wigan have lost six of their last eight games and are in the bottom three at Christmas for the third straight year. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger joked about coming through a “super crisis” after the 5-2 win at Reading on Monday.And the Frenchman will take a large measure of satisfaction with the way his team, who were unspectacular but efficient, dealt with a difficult afternoon at the DW Stadium. With festive matches against Newcastle and Southampton to come, Wenger will be confident that his team can enter the new year with a tight grip on a top-four spot.Although he earned the penalty, Walcott, whose future remains uncertain, was deprived of service for much of the game and the closest he came to scoring himself was a second-half free-kick.But his contribution was enough to provide yet more frustration for Wigan.The absence of four of his centre-backs forced Wigan manager Roberto Martinez to employ a back four rather than his favoured three-man defence.With Antonio Lopez out for 10 weeks, he will be desperate for Gary Caldwell, Ivan Ramis and Antolin Alcaraz to return to action over the festive period. Martinez did cause Arsenal uncertainty when James McCarthy lined up as a third centre-back at the kick off only to take up his usual position in midfield seconds later.But Arsenal began well and after Arteta was allowed to carry the ball from halfway, he fed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, whose drive was pushed past the post by Ali Al Habsi.For all of their selection issues, Wigan played with purpose and Kone should have done better when he beat Jack Wilshere and Thomas Vermaelen before hitting a tame shot straight at Wojciech Szczesny.The Ivory Coast striker threatened again when he was played through by Franco Di Santo and tore away from Per Mertesacker but his shot squirmed wide.Wigan full-backs Ronnie Stam and Jean Beausejour were still getting forward at every opportunity despite only having two centre-backs behind them. And after the interval, Arsenal began to exploit the space behind Beausejour, with Oxlade-Chamberlain having one cross cut out and then picking out Walcott, who was denied from close-range by Al Habsi.It was a policy that paid off just before the hour when Walcott dropped wide and swapped passes with Santi Cazorla before going down under Beausejour’s challenge.Arteta waited for Al Habsi to dive and stroked in his third successful penalty of the season.Wigan responded with Kone cutting in from the left and forcing a save from Szczesny and Maynor Figueroa had a drive held by the goalkeeper.David Jones thumped a shot narrowly wide from just outside the area but Arsenal came through a nervous finish to take the points. Wigan boss Roberto Martinez: “That first goal was going to be crucial. The penalty was very soft. Theo was very clever.“At the other end, it was a clear penalty [for a handball against Kieran Gibbs] because the hands were not in a natural position.“We are going through a spell where the calls are not going for us, but I am proud of the players. Once all the players are back we will get the rewards.”Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: “It was hard-fought. Wigan are a good side. We were not as good, sharp and fluent as Monday [when beating Reading].“It was a tough game and Wigan can surprise a lot of teams. Once we were 1-0 up it was all Wigan but we were well organised. It looked like from outside [that it was a penalty for us].” Asked if Theo can play up front, he added: “I am convinced he can do that. Today he didn’t get that much service but he worked hard and got us the penalty.”

Following a landslide on Monday night due to heavy rain, the Peace River Regional District issued a warning for residents to stay away from the Beatton River.Greig Bethel of the Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations confirmed that this ministry, Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, and the BC Oil and Gas Commission inspected the site fully on Tuesday, and now it is difficult to forecast when this slide will become inactive, as more slipping could occur any time.“This landslide was a natural event and this is not the first time it has happened,” Bethel wrote in an e-mail to Energetic City. “The Beatton River and its tributaries are inherently unstable and occasionally subject to large, rapid landslides moving on low gradients.”- Advertisement -According to the Ministry, flooding was minimal and impact to resource users and residents appears to be minimal overall.He adds that an immediately impacted landowner at the slide area has erected an electric fence adjacent to the site, to keep livestock safely away.The Province is echoing the PRRD in asking people to stay away from the Beatton River at this time – from the slide area all the way down to the meeting of the Beatton and Peace rivers.Advertisement Bethel said that the Cecil Lake Bridge is well above the Beatton River, and was not impacted by this event, but the bridge site is being monitored.
