James Wade won his second PDC European Tour title with a thrilling 6-5 victory over Dave Chisnall in the final of the European Darts Matchplay in Hamburg. Wade claimed the £25,000 first prize at the Inselparkhalle with a classy weekend of darts, bouncing back in style from missing out on the Premier League play-offs to pick up his first ranking title of 2016.The left-hander had overcome a scare in Saturdays second-round tie with Welshman Jonny Clayton before disposing of world champion Gary Anderson in the third round on Sunday afternoon. He then edged past young Dutchman Benito van de Pas 6-5 in the quarter-finals before ending Michael van Gerwens bid to win a fourth successive European Tour event of 2016 in the last four - becoming the first player to defeat the world No 1 this year in this series.The opening two legs of the final against Chisnall were shared before Wade clinically won the next three without reply with finishes of 70, 64 and 118 to move 4-1 up.Chisnall then took out 140, 127 and 78 - on the bull - as he won four of the next five to take the game to a decider, but he missed tops for victory to allow Wade in, and the left-hander took out 82 by hitting tops himself as he took glory.Wades previous European Tour win had come in Gibraltar in 2014, and he said: Its a lovely feeling - I dont win often enough now so it means a lot to me when I do.I believe Ive played solid darts all weekend. I rode my luck but I proved that its not all always about hitting big averages but hitting crucial shots at the right time. Im very fortunate that Dave missed the double top and my one dart went in.That might be the most important double top Ive ever thrown, and I believe that in the next three to four months I can be dangerous.The defeat saw Chisnall finish as the runner-up for a second successive weekend on the European Tour, after last Sundays loss in the decider to Van Gerwen, although the St Helens ace picked up another £10,000 in prize money for his efforts.

I played well all day but I started too slowly. I got back into it but missed my chance and James deserved to win.Wright produced some superb darts during his run to the last four - including a sublime 160 checkout during his quarter-final win over Max Hopp - before losing out to Chisnall.Van Gerwens bid to continue his European Tour winning streak was ended by Wade in the semi-finals, but the world No 1 had produced some fine darts to defeat Daryl Gurney in the third round and Jelle Klaasen, in a high-quality quarter-final.

Scolari attended the official FIFA news conference in Sao Paulo on Wednesday and did not travel to be with his family in southern Brazil, where 48-year-old Tarcisio Joao Schneider died in a car accident on Tuesday. He also took charge of the teams training session at the Itaquerao Stadium where Brazil will play Croatia on Thursday. Scolari said he was drawing strength from seeing his players dedication in their preparations for the World Cup. "I find the strength by working with this group, in this environment, where the players are dedicating themselves to their goal day after day," Scolari said. "This helps me leave the sadness behind and stick to the positive things that are happening." The coach was told about Schneiders death just before the teams training session outside Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday, one of thee last before the opener.dddddddddddd "Sometimes we have to deal with some difficulties, but you have to try to move on," Scolari said. Schneiders brother, Darlan, was one of Brazils physical trainers when Scolaris team won the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan. Highway police in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul said Schneider, the son of one of Scolaris sisters, died when the car he was driving collided head-on with a truck on the opposite lane. Its not the first time that Scolari has had to deal with a personal tragedy since Brazil began its World Cup preparations. Last month, he had to leave the training camp to attend the funeral of one of his brothers-in-law. There was also a shadow cast over the start of the 2010 tournament in South Africa, when Nelson Mandela was not able to attend the tournaments opening match because his 13-year-old great-granddaughter died in a car crash on the way home from a tournament-eve concert. ___ Follow Tales Azzoni at http://twitter.com/tazzoni Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys
