Captain Marek Hamsik opened the scoring with a header after 20 minutes, and Napoli opened the floodgates early in the second half with three goals – two of them from Dries Mertens – in the space of seven minutes. Mertens scored his first with a beautiful free kick that floated over Benfica’s wall before dipping down into the net. directoryArkadiusz Milik, the 22-year-old Poland center forward brought in to replace Higuain, converted a penalty before Mertens added another from close range after goalkeeper Julio Cesar made a miscalculation. Substitutes Goncalo Guedes and Eduardo Salvio scored late for Benfica. ”We showed that we can belong in this competition,” Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri said. ”Knocking out a top-level squad like this is not easy.” Having opened with a come-from-behind 2-1 win at Dynamo Kiev, Napoli has six points from two games and looks improved despite Higuain’s Italian-record transfer to domestic rival Juventus for 90 million euros ($99 million). Besiktas has two points after drawing 1-1 with Dynamo in the other group match, while Dynamo and Benfica have one each. ”We played a great match and we obtained a great result against a top-level squad,” Hamsik said. ”Too bad we conceded those two goals at the end but it was still a great match.” Napoli had never before scored four goals in the Champions League, and the outburst came a day after Juventus’ 4-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb. Could this match be taken as a response to Juve’s performance? ”Napoli is here,” Hamsik said.foot pain va disability

(Avi Steinhardt/Special to NJ.com) comments ATLANTIC CITY The delayed 200-foot observation wheel to be builton the Steel Pier in Atlantic City is now slated to open next year. Previously scheduled to be operational earlier this year , it’s now expected to be ready no later than July 1, 2017. That’s according to theCasino Reinvestment Development Authority, which restructured its loan with the Steel Pier. Each of the 42 fully-enclosed gondolas will offer food and beverage service. They will also be equipped with heat and air conditioning for year-round use. The observation wheel was constructed in Melara, Italy and will be positioned on a platform on the Pier. It is expected to cost about $14 million and attract 50,000 visitors per month, the CRDA said last year. The wheel will be joined by the Polercoaster, a 350-foot high vertical roller coaster to be built on the site of the old Sands casino as new additions to Atlantic City’s beachfront.
