Huddersfield captain Tommy Smith insists they can handle Premier League life

Promotion-winning Cardiff captain Mark Hudson ends playing career

Dutch born defender of Ghanaian descent Timothy Fosu-Mensah's first match for new club, Crystal Palace ended in a shock 3-0 defeat against Premier League new boys Huddersfield Town at the Selhurst park. It will be up to Wagner to get the most out of his defence as the attack could struggle to find the back of the net.

Cape Town - Huddersfield Town have revealed that captain Mark Hudson will take up a coaching role at the club after retiring from playing.

Wayne Hennessey had no chance in goal and one of Palace's summer signings, Jairo Riedewald, was not even close to beating Mounie to the ball as the Benin striker rose high above him to meet Aaron Mooy's left-wing cross. Huddersfield has a good manager but they lack skills on the pitch and that could cost them this season.

David Wagner hailed his "clinical" Huddersfield side after the Terriers earned a 3-0 victory at Crystal Palace on their Premier League bow.

De Boer's appointment may signal a change in philosophy as the Dutch manager has already made his player development intentions known in the transfer market.

Former Margate striker Freddie Ladapo was an unused substitute, along with teenager Jason Lokilo and South Korean global Chung-yong Lee, and with Palace's only other senior striker with Premier League experience, Connor Wickham, still likely to be out until the new year, this could well be an area de Boer looks to strengthen before the end of August.

Liverpool and Arsenal make bids for Real Madrid ace Marco Asensio
However, his situation at Real Madrid underwent a dramatic U-turn in the second part of the season following Gareth Bale's injury. Real Madrid quickly reacted by offering him a new deal and the player suggested that the signing was now only a formality.

De Boer has taken over with no experience of English football, but having managed Ajax and Inter.

Huddersfield are in the top flight for the first time since 1972 and open their campaign at Palace on Saturday. "I hope to get into the team and then play my part in hopefully a good season for us all".

Since 2008-09, only four newly promoted sides have won on the opening day in the Premier League - but all, like Huddersfield, had won promotion via the play-offs; Hull in 2008 and 2016, Blackpool in 2010 and West Ham in 2012.

It's Game Night for Kansas City Chiefs Football
The Niners kick off their 2017 preseason campaign tonight with a road bout versus the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. CHIEFS 10, 49ers 9 - Patrick Mahomes led the Chiefs on a 6-play, 36-yard drive to set up a field goal by Sam Ficken.

This will be the first Premier League match for both de Boer and Wagner.
