    导出博客文章GLASGOW, Scotland -- Manchester City came from behind three times to draw 3-3 at
    Celtic in a Champions League thriller on Wednesday that ended the English teams
    100 percent start to the season under new coach Pep Guardiola.Citys winning run
    to open the campaign stopped at 10 games in all competitions -- one short of
    matching the English record -- in a Group C match littered with poor defending
    by both teams at Parkhead.Fernandinho and Raheem Sterling scored equalizers for
    City in an action-packed first half after Celtic went ahead twice through Moussa
    Dembele, in the third minute, and Sterlings own goal in the 20th.Dembele
    restored Celtics lead barely a minute into the second half after Aleksandar
    Kolarovs defensive error, only for Nolito to equalize for City in the 55th.City
    had previously won six matches in the Premier League, three in the Champions
    League between the group stage and qualifying, and one in the English League Cup
    with a series of free-scoring displays. That put the team within sight of
    Tottenhams 11 straight wins to start the season in the 1960-61 campaign.Its OK,
    its one point, we didnt lose, said Guardiola, whose team faces former club
    Barcelona in back-to-back matches next.I am pretty sure the players didnt think
    they were going to win every game this season. It is impossible. Not even the
    best team in the world (could do that).City went behind for the first time under
    Guardiola and also conceded more than once for the first time under the
    Spaniard.Celtic -- thrashed 7-0 by Barcelona in its first group game -- pressed
    high and forced errors in possession from City, whose defense was shambolic at
    times without rested John Stones and injured captain Vincent Kompany.Every time
    we went forward, we looked like we could score, Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers
    said.The first example came inside three minutes. James Forrest was left
    unmarked at the far post from a diagonal free kick and his volleyed cross was
    glanced goalward by Erik Sviatchenko, with the ball deflecting off Dembele into
    the net.Fernandinho equalized in the 12th minute when a wayward shot from
    Kolarov fell into the path of the midfielder, who controlled and dribbled a
    left-footed shot into the corner.Back came Celtic. Kieran Tierney broke forward
    down the left and his cross took a deflection off a sliding Sterling and
    ricocheted into the net at Claudio Bravos near post.Sterling made immediate
    amends after Celtic lost possession in central midfield. David Silva played a
    slide-rule pass behind the defense to Sterling, who turned back inside a
    defender and slipped a low shot past goalkeeper Craig Gordon in the 28th.Celtics
    third goal also came from a City error, this time by Kolarov, who completely
    missed the ball as he attempted a clearance from a left-wing cross. Dembele
    reacted by hooking a shot over his shoulder and into the bottom corner.Still the
    hosts couldnt keep the lead. Silva played in Sergio Aguero, his shot was parried
    out by Gordon and Nolito scored from the rebound.After that, it was all City,
    with Fernandinho shooting just over and Ilkay Gundogan having a deflected shot
    saved in the final minutes.Im happy with the reaction from the players,
    Guardiola said. Its not easy to score three goals away. I dont know how many
    chances they had after the third goal. We should have won it.City, a Champions
    League semifinalist last season, opened group play by beating Borussia
    Moenchengladbach 4-0. Cheap Shoes

    extra motivation, not because were playing England but because we want to do
    well for ourselves and our country. Thats the motivation, not the opposition
    were playing, Moore said.This is the last time this group will have played
    together as a team and weve put a lot of emphasis on that. This is the last
    chance well get to play together. That means different things to different
    players, but if a player can take motivation from that, then thats good. ' ' '
