    Gary Neville will be expected to finish the season at Valencia after steadying what appeared to be a sinking ship at the Mestalla, says Sky Sports pundit Terry Gibson. Youth Portugal Jerseys . Nevilles upturn in fortunes continued with a third win in a week, Sundays 2-1 victory at Granada, despite his side riding their luck.Valencias victory followed their first league win under Neville at the 10th attempt last weekend when they beat Espanyol 2-1 and then lashed Rapid Vienna 6-0 in the Europa League on Thursday. Goals from Daniel Parejo and substitute Santi Mina helped them record back-to-back league wins for just the second time this season and with confidence high in the Valencia camp, Gibson feels Neville has now earned the right to decide if he wants to stay or go in the summer. La Liga Weekly - 22nd February It was similar to the week before for Valencia when Espanyol missed a lot of chances. Defensively Gary Neville will be looking at ways to tighten up, Gibson told La Liga weekly podcast.They looked good in midweek when they beat Rapid Vienna 6-0 - they were five up at half-time - and on that evidence it looked like the Valencia that were used to seeing.He would be worried that they give away too many chances, but at the same time it does buy him some breathing time to get on with his job and without the threat of the sack every game and without the press hounding him on a daily basis. Highlights from Valencias 2-1 win away at Granada We might just see a regular Valencia. Two weeks ago there were issues about regulation and rightly so - it was 12 games without a win in La Liga. They were four points above relegation at the time, but back-to-back wins takes them 10 points clear of relegation.So no relegation issues, no major crisis for Gary Neville. Scoring goals - 10 goals in a week. I believe he will be alright and I think he will stay until the end of the season and I think he will salvage a reputation that could have been damaged had they lost to Espanyol. I think everything will be alright at Valencia now. I think Gary Neville will steer them safely through the rest of the season and they could make really good progress in the Europa League.They got hammered for getting thrashed by Barcelona, but they did get to the semi-final the Copa Del Rey. Neville was appointed manager until the summer The England coach and former Manchester United defender was appointed manager until the summer and Gibson says if Nevilles side maintain their current form, he can walk away a proud man.They can sit down in the summer and see if Gary Neville wants to continue with the job or whether Valencia want to go for one of the more experienced managers being linked with the job, he said.At the end of it, I think he can walk away from a job well done and most importantly for him, huge lessons learnt, a crash course in his first six months as a manager.

Cheap Portugal Jerseys . -- The Portland Timbers and Real Salt Lake played to a 0-0 tie Saturday night that left the top of the Western Conference standings unchanged. . In Europe, top teams seem to be largely happy with their squads after spending nearly $1 billion in the off-season. And although English league clubs are unlikely to splash cash in January, Arsenal and Chelsea could be tempted to strengthen their squads with new strikers.It was inevitable that Virat Kohli would make a big score at some point in the Test series against England, according to Michael Atherton. The India captain ended day one of the second Test in Visakhapatnam unbeaten on 151 as he made England pay for dropping him when he was on 56.The hosts closed on 317-4 after James Anderson removed Ajinkya Rahane late on with the new ball, but Kohli remains and will be confident of adding to his tally on a batsman-friendly track. Virat Kohli finished day one unbeaten on 151 England were always going to feel the force of Kohlis bat at some stage, Atherton told Sky Sports. He didnt have a particularly good series against England in 2014 when Jimmy Anderson was all over him but it all came together nicely for him today.Hes on the back of runs in that Rajkot game, so hes feeling confident. Although hes not played a Test match here, in one-day [internationals] hes got a wonderful record at this ground and he won a good toss on an excellent pitch.He was in early because of those two wickets and really he couldnt have asked for nicer conditions to bat in than he had today. He played superbly.While Kohli will take the headlines, he was ably assisted for much of the day by Cheteshwar Pujara, who notched his third hundred in as many Tests before falling to Anderson for 119. Kohli (r) and Cheteshwar Pujara both hit centuries on the opening day The pair put on 226 for the second wicket with their contrasting styles drawing comparisons with another famous Indian duo.Pujara is a wonderful player too and I think they combine well together, that was their fourth 100 partnership in Test matches; he is a good foil for Kohli, Atherton added.Its a little bit like Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid in years gone by. Tendulkar, as Kohli is now, is the big draw card - the man that everybody wants to come and see - but what you need down the other end is a guy who hasnt got a big ego and who isnt going to try and compete but who will get runs in whatever situation you find yourself in.

The challenge now for England, argues Atherton, is to take the remaining six Indian wickets before the pitch begins to deteriorate to allow themselves a chance to bat while conditions are still favourable.The pitch will change more than Rajkot, its not as firm a pitch and therefore it feels as though the top will go, said Atherton. How quickly is the key question, of course.If India get 450, its going to be difficult for England. Itll probably stay fine tomorrow but if India can bat until tea-time tomorrow, itll probably start to go on that third day which is why the toss was so important. There wont be as much bounce as Rajkot but I think its going to spin more. The best of the action from Day One of the Second Test in Visakhapatnam How Anderson rocks up tomorrow will be interesting and Stuart Broad seems to have this issue with his right foot, he only bowled 11 overs today so it hasnt been an ideal day for England.Watch highlights of day one of the second Test between India and England on Sky Sports 2 from 2pm, then stay tuned for The Verdict at 3pm on the same channel.
