LIVERPOOL www.thetopsoccer.com/italy , England (AP) — Richarlison scored twice and Everton twice threw away the lead against Wolverhampton Wanderers before winning 3-2 in the Premier League on Sunday.Bookending Alex Iwobi’s goal, Richarlison scored the first and last goals of a frenzied game that lurched between moments of quality, to a long spell of mediocrity and back again to provide an entertaining finish.Everton handed full Premier League debuts to a trio of summer signings in Moise Kean, Fabian Delph and Iwobi. All three made an impact with Iwobi scoring for the second successive game and Delph, holding things together in midfield, particularly impressive.After qualifying for the Europa League group stage on Thursday, Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo made four changes Cheap Japan Soccer Jerseys , including key players Joao Moutino and Diogo Jota.Romain Saiss and Raul Jimenez, with his eighth goal in eight starts in all competitions this season, twice pulled Wolves level but defeat left them still looking for their first Premier League win after three draws.Two of the three goals conceded by Wolves were down to poor defending, with the opener particularly disorderly.Conor Coady hesitated in playing a backpass to Rui Patricio so when he eventually did, the goalkeeper was taken by surprise and could only stab the ball to Kean, who fortuitously diverted it into the path of Richarlison and he beat Coady on the line in the fifth minute.Everton, with six successive home league clean sheets having not conceded since February in its last Goodison defeat Cheap Mexico Soccer Shirts , would have been hopeful of extending that run considering their record so far this season but that evaporated within four minutes.Adama Traore, the right wingback, skipped past Lucas Digne and his low cross rebounded invitingly for Saiss to fire home from close range.Everton came back and Gylfi Sigurdsson swung in a right-wing cross that Iwobi headed home at the far post in the 12th.After the break Richarlison and Iwobi continued to threaten down the flanks without producing any genuine end-product but it was enough to have Wolves backpedaling.Jimenez produced the equalizer in the 75th, stealing in at the far post behind the napping Digne to bundle home a Ryan Bennett long throw flicked on by Willy Boly.But Richarlison had the final say, heading home a deep Digne cross 10 minutes from time.Boly’s second yellow card in the final seconds only compounded Wolves’ misery. CAIRO (AP) — Tunisia knocked Ghana out of the African Cup of Nations in a penalty shootout on Monday, extending the Black Stars’ run of pain at the tournament for at least another two years.The title drought is now 37 years and counting for Ghana, which was eliminated 5-4 in the shootout in Ismailia when striker Caleb Ekuban was the only player to miss.Goalkeeper Farouk Ben Mustapha was the hero for Tunisia in the last-16 match. He was brought on especially for the shootout and made a match-winning save from Ekuban.That left Ferjani Sassi to step up and score with the last spot-kick and send Tunisia into a quarterfinal against surprise package Madagascar.Tunisia was on its way to winning in regulation time after Taha Khenissi scored in the 73rd minute. Ghana snatched a dramatic equalizer two minutes into injury time when Rami Bedoui headed the ball into his own net straight after coming on as a substitute to make it 1-1.There were no goals in extra time.Ghana’s failure means the star-studded West Africans still haven’t won the African Cup since their fourth title in 1982. Ghana has lost three finals since then Cheap Nigeria Soccer Jerseys , including on penalties in 2015.Tunisia was the last team to seal its spot in the quarters in Egypt.The quarterfinal lineup is: Senegal vs. Benin, Nigeria vs. South Africa, Ivory Coast vs. Algeria and Tunisia vs. Madagascar.Earlier, Wilfried Zaha’s late goal put Ivory Coast into the last eight with a 1-0 victory over Mali in Suez.Zaha’s winner in the 76th minute saved Ivory Coast, which had been the second-best team for most of the game.But Zaha took his chance when Mali’s players didn’t. He ran onto a long pass launched from the back and tucked his shot away after Mali’s defense failed to deal with the danger.Mali had twice as many shots on goal as the Ivorians, dominated the first half and also finished the game strongest. The Malians just couldn’t break through.Ivory Coast was the 2015 champion and is seeking a third title.The quarterfinals start on Wednesday.
