Review Belgium – England

first_imgThomas Meunier and Eden Hazard scored in a deserved 2-0 victory for Belgium which earned its first ever World Cup medal.Here are the teams for #BELENG! #WorldCup pic.twitter.com/Wv14Z5zrXW— FIFA World Cup (@FIFAWorldCup) July 14, 2018Thomas Meunier, the man who missed the semi-final against France, scored in the 4th minute to give Belgium an early 1-0 lead. Danny Rose did not cover Meunier, allowing him to get at the end of a Nacer Chadli cross just a few meters away from goal. The game was nowhere near as closed as the first group stage encounter between the two. Despite good defensive positioning, both teams were finding space to create opportunities. De Bruyne had a shot blocked by Pickford, Lukaku failed to control a ball inside the box, while Loftus-Cheek and Maguire had a header each. Harry Kane was forgotten by Belgium’s defenders in the 24th minute, but he slipped in the last moment and fired his shot wide.James Rodriguez, Real MadridZidane hails ‘quality’ James Rodriguez after Real Madrid’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane reserved special praise for James Rodriguez after his starring role in Real Madrid’s 3-2 win over Levante.In the 35th minute, Aiderweireld had an overhead shot go over the bar following a corner kick. Soon after that, The Red Devils had a counter attack which slowed down once Chadli grabbed his hamstring. He couldn’t continue and was replaced by (somewhat surprisingly) Thomas Vermaelen. England had the initiative for around 15 minutes in the middle of the first half, but then Belgium regained control and had several attempts at goal blocked before Sandro Ricci blew the half-time whistle.Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford strengthened England’s attack at half-time, entering the pitch in place of Danny Rose and Raheem Sterling. In the 55th minute, De Druyne saw a free zone and sent a through ball to Lukaku, who would’ve had a one-on-one with Pickford if he had managed to receive the pass. However, for the second time in the match, he didn’t. The center forward wasn’t fully invested in the contest. Roberto Martinez saw that and replaced him with Dries Mertens in the 60th minute.In the 70th minute, Eric Dier and Jess Lingard played a great one-two pass which freed up Dier, who chipped the ball over Courtois. When everyone thought it was 1-1, Toby Aiderweireld came flying in and cleared the ball off the goal line. It was by far the best chance of the game for The Three Lions, who began increasing the pressure. In the 78th minute, Moussa Dembele came in for Youri Tielemans. Two minutes later, we saw the best counter attack of the entire championship which included two backheel passes and ended with Jordan Pickford making a one-handed save on Thomas Meunier’s volley. If he would’ve scored, it would’ve been the goal of the tournament.Eden Hazard finally got a goal from open play in the 82nd minute. Kevin De Bruyne pushed the ball between four defenders and gave it to Hazard, who avoided being in an offside position and was quicker than Phil Jones. It was routine afterwards, as he beat Pickford at the near post to make it 2-0 Belgium. Dele Alli substituted Ruben Loftus-Cheek following the goal. The Belgians calmly brought the game to a close, winning their first bronze medal in football history.last_img read more

Napoli closes the door on Cavani return

first_imgNapoli have ruled out the return of Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani this summer, according to club president Aurelio De Laurentiis.The PSG forward is a popular figure with Napoli supporters following a successful three-year spell. He eventually joined French giants Paris-Saint Germain in a big-money deal, where he has won four Ligue 1 titles and currently the club’s all-time top scorer.But with rumors rife over a potential reunion during the transfer window, Aurelio De Laurentiis has brushed aside the suggestions in an interview with Italian radio.“Cavani? I haven’t signed him and won’t sign him,” he told Radio Kiss Kiss (via Football Italia).‘There were no phone calls with his representatives. Newspapers have to sell copies; they’re going into crisis and without these headlines, they can’t survive.’Maurizio Sarri, JuventusMaurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.Another player linked to the Naples side this transfer window is Chilean midfielder, Arturo Vidal. But De Laurentiis insisted that the Serie A side are focused on purchasing younger players during the close season.“He said: Vidal to Napoli? False. He’s someone I followed many years ago, but now I’m looking for younger players who are usable in the long run.“Today, three great players in our squad return, Milik, Zielinski, and Koulibaly. We already have top players at home.”Carlo Ancelotti was brought in to spearhead their challenge for the Serie A title, with former coach Maurizio Sarri now in charge at Chelsea.last_img read more

Valverde is still unsure if he will remain in Barcelona

first_imgBarcelona manager Ernesto Valverde has everybody in the club uncertain because he still hasn’t given any hints about a contract extension.Being the Barcelona manager is always a really stressful job for anyone who decides to take it, especially during this era in which the club is going through a successful period and Ernesto Valverde is the latest to suffer the consequences of this job. Ever since Pep Guardiola started as the manager back in 2008, the position has been filled by some very interesting managers who have left for various circumstances and abruptly ended their relationship with the club. Pep himself gave everybody a heads up and he left as the most revered manager in the club’s history, after him, followed the late ‘Tito’ Vilanova who sadly lost his battle with cancer. That loss was a huge blow for the whole club because the Catalan manager was the ideal coach to keep the style alive, but the club had to bring in a new manager and they called Gerardo Martino who only lasted a season and didn’t win a single trophy. The Argentine manager had to part ways with the club due to an alarming lack of results, patience in clubs like Barcelona is not a luxury these institutions can afford and they quickly started looking for a new manager.CALLING ALL FANS! Who can sum up today’s win with a GIF? Any takers?#BarçaPSV?? pic.twitter.com/zchSDhgmaw— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) September 18, 2018Luis Enrique’s abrupt exit.The board of directors in the Catalan club found a suitable replacement quickly in Luis Enrique, a former Barcelona player who had already managed Celta de Vigo with acceptable results for a club of its stature. This was a man who knew the Barcelona philosophy very well, but brought a fresh approach on the attack and was fortunate enough to have one of the best attacking trios in history formed by Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, and Neymar. His spell was also short because of the temperamental personality that he had, problems with several players quickly began to emerge and his time in the club had an expiration date. But Luis Enrique’s time in his beloved club, brought the second treble in its history and he broke many records during his time. But even if the club wanted him to stay as the manager, Luis Enrique made up his mind and left once he had already won all the trophies he could with the Blaugrana. This is how once again, the Catalan club wasn’t able to keep a manager and started looking for another suitable replacement. They also found it in Ernesto Valverde, who is still the manager today and also won trophies during his first year at the club. When he arrived, the new boss agreed on a two-year contract because he knew that managers never last in this club.?

Actually, the boss has an excellent relationship with every member of the squad but the board didn’t like him getting eliminated in last year’s Champions League against AS Roma. Right after the shocking defeat, club President Josep Maria Bartomeu came out to criticize Valverde for the result and the manager didn’t appreciate him throwing all his technical staff under the bus like that. Now that the same people who came after him last season are trying to get him to sign a new contract, Valverde is right to leave them in suspense because he feels they were disloyal towards him in the most difficult moment for the club. But this behavior from the club’s president is not new, he has repeatedly committed mistakes that the Barcelona supporters don’t appreciate and they later accept only because the club keeps winning trophies with him as the chairman. But the fans might not accept this confrontation with Valverde, the manager who has done things right in the last season and the man who has Barcelona as the top title contenders in Europe right now. Ernesto’s contract ends next summer, there hasn’t been any movement in regards to an extension and people are starting to get nervous.? Hear what the boss and players had to say after #BarçaPSV?? #ForçaBarça? https://t.co/prPMF380an— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) September 18, 2018How far do you think Valverde will wait until he gives news about a contract extension with FC Barcelona?

They spoke a different language. There was still discrimination. I felt different. I felt barriers everywhere.”Quiz: How deep is your knowledge about Samuel Eto’o? Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 9, 2019 It’s time for you to tell us everything you know about Samuel Eto’o. We will ask you 10 questions about the Cameroon legend. Enjoy!  “Football played a big part in helping me integrate me into society. Football is a universal language. You don’t need to speak the same language to play together. I would play in the parks and then Luigi [Petrillo], my mentor, invited to help coach a team of people with intellectual disabilities,” he added.“I received such a warm reception from them. I felt people accept me without looking at my skin color, my eyes. It was so real, so pure. I regained self-confidence, self-identity. I felt part of a group. I felt that people were listening to me.”“Because I’m not a professional coach, I used my own soccer skills to teach people. And I tried to give them responsibility and encourage them, telling them, ‘You can do it’. I told them that if we’re passing each other the ball, then we’re a team, and as a team, we can do anything,” he explained.“When I heard I was going to the Special Olympics World Games, I was extremely happy, so excited. I had previously been denied the chance to go to a tournament in the USA because I had been a refugee and couldn’t get a visa.”“I must say a big thanks to the Special Olympics because they made the impossible, possible. They’re fighting for inclusion, for integration. They said, ‘If someone wants to integrate themselves into society, why does there have to be so many difficulties for him to get a visa?’ And they made it possible,” he concluded.last_img read more

Dudley Lewis, the Elections Supervisor said although the Electors Register will not be published until next year March, it is November 30, 2015 – just 15 business days away that sees the new register officially closed. Lewis clarified that “Eligible voters on the present Register of Electors do not need to re-apply to be included in the new one, they will be automatically included unless they notify the Elections Office that they have changed their name or place of residence, or no longer meet eligibility criteria.” One dis-qualifier is if one has been living outside of the country for the past year or two. General Elections are due to happen in 2016, as next year will mark four years since the Rufus Ewing led administration was elected at the polls. Those who are bonafide Turks and Caicos Islanders, but who will not be 18 years old before November 30 may still have a chance to make the register said Lewis: “anyone who attains the age of 18 and anyone who has been granted status as a Turks and Caicos Islander after November 30 who applies will be added to the register provided it is not less than 30 days before the date of the poll.”Getting registered, explained Lewis first involves filling out a voter registration form which is available at the relevant government offices on all islands in the TCI. 2015/2016 Electors list increases by less than 500 Amendments will mean less time at polls, next TCI General Election TCI Preliminary 2016/17 Electors List to be Publish Friday January 29, 2016 Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Former PM Ingraham says register to vote

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNassau, Bahamas, February 1, 2017 – While voters wrangle over the relevance of Free National Movement leadership, its former leader and former Prime minister of The Bahamas is today in the Tribune telling Bahamians to get out and register to vote.  Voter apathy is high, voter registration turn out is low and the trend is troubling with General Elections set to be called anytime now.   The three term Prime Minister for the FNM said in the article, “It is a very important exercise in democracy. The higher the percentage of people who register, the higher the percentage of people who vote. It’s the one opportunity that people have to determine who is going to govern them and notwithstanding whatever issues that might confront people, it’s the most effective means people have to determine the direction of their country by registering to vote and so I encourage them to vote.” The Parliamentary Registration Department says just over half of who registered last elections have showed up at registration centers; recorded now at just under 88,000 Bahamians.  The Tribune caught the retired country leader and his wife at Government High School, where they were registering themselves.  #MagneticMediaNews Related Items:Former PM Ingraham says register to votecenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Omar Archers case now a Human Rights matter

This comes after Archer was yesterday remanded to jail yet again.  It is also being reported that Archer’s 28-day sentence has since been squashed. However, an instruction was given that he be remanded an additional seven days and his bail revoked.QC Smith told members of the media, “To keep Omar Archer in jail under an alleged offence of criminal libel is to make him a political prisoner.”  He added, “Criminal libel must be abolished so that the Bahamas can grow as a democracy.”Smith believes it is a Human Rights case now since offences like this “has sent an element of fear and anxiety and concern throughout the citizenry.” He believes people are now afraid to speak out against the government because they may be politically victimized like Archer and others.According to QC Smith, the Human Rights Association would also be taking international measures to ensure the international communities become aware of Archer’s case and the current laws in the Bahamas. He added, “This government in particular have been using these offences to prosecute people.”Archer’s team, however, believe it is uncommon for someone facing such minor matters to not be fined and freed. They found the judge’s ruling shocking and thinks that Archer is being treated like criminals who commit more serious crimes. Archer will now face the Supreme Court next Wednesday, and Smith revealed they are currently seeking his bail.Story by: Kay-Marie Fletcher#MagneticMediaNews#FredSmithandOmarArcherlast_img read more
