It’s been a pleasure playing in front of amazing Kolkata crowd: Jadon Sancho

first_imgSoon after leaving the England U-17 squad for club commitments, star attacking midfielder Jadon Sancho said it was a “pleasure” playing at the FIFA U-17 World Cup in front of big crowds at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan.”I just wanna say a Big Thank you to Kolkata for the support, it’s been a pleasure playing in front of such amazing crowd! Come on England!,” Sancho wrote on his Twitter handle.Playing down the left channel with his shimmies cutting inside and teeing up teammates with exquisite passes and at times weaving past defenders, Sancho has been a crowd favourite from the very first day when England took on Chile.In all three of England’s group matches, attendance has been over 40,000 at the colossal venue with chants of “Sancho Sancho” frequenting the stands.The 17-year old Borussia Dortmund player scored a brace in that game as England won 4-0 following it up with another stellar display against Mexico where he netted another from the spot.Sancho played a part in the Young Lions’ final 4-0 triumph over Iraq before having to leave Indian shores to join his employers in Germany.The former Watford and Manchester City player was withdrawn before England’s final training session ahead of their Round of 16 game against Japan.Sancho said his farewell to the squad on Sunday evening before leaving the team’s base in Kolkata and heading to Cyprus where Dortmund play APOEL in the Champions League on Tuesday.”People enjoyed seeing him play and it’s a disappointment for him because he very much enjoyed his time in India and relished the chance to play in a World Cup. He loves playing for England and this team in particular so it’s sad to see him go.advertisement”I can only imagine Dortmund want him back to play in their first team at the weekend and I assume he will be starting for them, because I can’t think of a reason why you would take a player away from a World Cup,” coach Steve Cooper had said at the pre-match press conference on Monday.last_img read more

No need for equalization payments for Alberta economist

first_imgCALGARY (660 NEWS) – While Quebec is set to receive $13 billion in equalization payments next year, many Albertans are scratching their head over no money for the province.Finance Minister Bill Morneau recently released the numbers for the next two years of equalization payments with Quebec receiving a $1.4 billion boost while Alberta and Ontario won’t receive any payments for 2019 and 2020.While many Conservative politicians believe this move is shunning Alberta from the rest of the country economist with the University of Calgary, Trevor Tombe, said that’s not the case.RELATED: Quebec premier lacks understanding of Alberta’s energy industry: Ceci“We are the highest income province by far so there’s no claim for us to be receiving equalization dollars. I think a lot of Albertans look at the provincial budget and see a large deficit here, and then they look out east and see provinces such as Quebec that don’t have similarly large deficits.”Tombe said that equalization payments are transferring funds to provinces with weaker economies and is not based on provincial budgets.The equalization payment formula is revisited every five years and is usually negotiated by the provinces and the Federal Finance Minister. However, Tombe said that those negotiations didn’t happen this year.While there does appear to be confusion around equalization payments for Albertans, Tombe said he understands where a lot of the opposition comes from.“It’s less about the formula, and it’s more about people’s broader impressions of whether the Federal Government is adequately addressing challenges that Alberta faces. Quebec’s opposition to pipelines, for example, Energy East, it’s frustrating to some Albertans.”last_img read more

Ohio State womens rowing team sets sights on fourpeat

The Ohio State women’s rowing team competes on May 30, 2015 at the NCAA qualifying round in Gold River, Calif. Credit: Courtesy of OSU AthleticsAs the Ohio State rowing team looks ahead to going after an unprecedented fourth straight national championship in 2016, the squad is working hard to prepare itself and stay focused on the season ahead.“It’s kind of an indescribable feeling because at the end, you all realize how much work you all put in for this moment,” junior MaryClare Stannard said.The team captured its third consecutive championship last year, becoming the first in NCAA history to do so.“When we won, I was just so happy for everyone in the boat and on the the team,” junior Casey Schaffer said.There is a lot of buzz surrounding the team and the possibility of repeating yet again, and everyone involved in the program knows it.“We try to stay humble, and we gotta make sure there’s no cutting corners,” Stannard said.Assistant coaches Madeline Davis and Anna Goodale take a similar viewpoint in focusing on the now.“I tell them ‘one stroke at a time,’ because you will not get better if you skip over and not pay attention to what’s right in front of you,” Goodale said.Davis added that the team’s main focus has to be improving, even after reaching the pinnacle three years in a row.“At every opportunity you have to take a step forward, take it,” Davis said.Both Davis and Goodale have professional experience in rowing, having competed on the U.S. women’s national team.Goodale, the newest addition to the coaching staff, was a member of the women’s eight team that won a gold medal at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.The women’s eight team, which is a team in rowing that has eight members in the boat, with four oars on either side for propulsion and a rudder manned by a coxswain, is the group which took home the individual championship for OSU.The team works hard to keep focused through a culture of camaraderie.“We are honestly a family,” Schaffer said. “I’ve never been a part of such an empowering group of young female athletes.”Stannard agreed that it is a very close-knit group.“We feed off of each other as teammates,” Stannard said. “We can’t do it without each other.”The 2016 schedule has yet to be released, but the season is set to begin in late March. read more

Football Ohio State won a conference championship on the back of its

Ohio State senior safety Damon Webb (7) celebrates a pass break-up in the third quarter of the B1G Championship game against Wisconsin on Dec. 2 in Lucas Oil Stadium. Ohio State won 27-21. Credit: James King II | Sports DirectorINDIANAPOLIS — “Defense wins championships” is the most overused phrase in sports. It will be used one million times or more in the coming weeks as four teams prepare for a shot at a national title.Saturday, the phrase was gospel.No. 8 Ohio State made two momentous defensive stops in the final five minutes against No. 4 Wisconsin to win its first Big Ten title since 2014, and more importantly for the Buckeyes, they have a realistic shot at earning the final spot in the College Football Playoff just vacated by the Badgers.“Their preparation this week, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a college football team prepare the way these kids did,” Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano said. “I think that gave them great confidence to go execute.”Ohio State elected to kick a field goal on a fourth-and-1 with 5:20 remaining, which extended the lead to 27-21. That’s a spot where head coach Urban Meyer is notorious for rolling the dice and winning a football game by winning that 1 yard. He said after the game that it was his decision to kick the field goal and go against his traditional action of attempting the conversion.The truth was that the defense was playing too well not to have faith that it could get a stop. It did. And after another three-and-out by the Ohio State offense, the defense made the game-ending stop.Wisconsin quarterback Alex Hornibrooke threw his second interception of the game on fourth-and-20 to Damon Webb with less than two minutes left in the game.“I just thought our defense was playing so good,” Meyer said. Let’s let that quarterback and let our defensive line do what they do best and get after that quarterback. But that was one of the toughest calls of the day.”Hornibrooke’s has the worst touchdown to interception ratio of any Power 5 conference quarterback at 21 to 15. But he wasn’t what concerned Ohio State’s defense. Big Ten freshman of the year Jonathan Taylor, who averaged more than 150 rushing yards per game entering the contest, was the main focus on defense.In response, the defensive line played one of its best games of the year by continually penetrating Wisconsin’s vaunted offensive line and stopping Taylor before he got any momentum.The running back had 15 carries for 41 yards, his lowest total in one game this season.The defense answered any challenged thrown at them, most especially when the offense failed to put away Wisconsin.Ohio State had four three-and-outs, two field goals and an interception in the second half. There was no touchdown to decisively split the Badgers from the playoff field and the ranks of the unbeaten. The defense had to do that.“I think we were super confident the whole game,” sophomore defensive end Nick Bosa said. “I don’t think there was a moment we thought we were going to lose at all.”Wisconsin could have been the team that was on the podium celebrating as the Buckeyes walked off the field without any detection and with their heads held low, for everyone’s eyes would be on the team with the shiny football and hardware hoisted in the air. Everyone in attendance would watch the players and coaches pack themselves onto a makeshift stage that looks like it should be in a town parade rather than on a football field.Instead, Ohio State celebrated. A dominant offense at times that then went cold late couldn’t put the game on ice. To win the game, it had to be done on defense.An opportunity was there for the Badgers. Ohio State left the door open after each missed chance to deliver a decisive blow, but the defense seized it when the Badgers couldn’t. That’s why Ohio State is the Big Ten champion. read more

Davide Astori is still with us – Stefano Pioli declares

first_imgHead coach of Italian football club Fiorentina, Stefano Pioli, has set his sight on Europe and the Coppa Italia, as he reveals the bond between the club and former captain Davide Astori who died in his sleep in March.Even though the Viola comes as a surprise package of the season so far in Serie A, they could battle for a top-four finish.“I would very much like to qualify for Europe, but it won’t be easy. I think it’s clear to all that there are teams better equipped out there, but we’re ready to take advantage of any slip-ups,” said the Coach at a Q&A with La Repubblica newspaper via Football Italia.“At this moment, I see a Fiorentina side that is ambitious, but not winning yet. There is a step between ambition and victory that we still need to cover. The Coppa Italia cannot be considered a secondary objective and it’s only right to target going all the way.”“Astori and Milan Badelj were my reference points in the locker room. The team had changed so much that summer and I leaned on them for support, as everyone did with Davide.“What happened was a shock and it pushed me to appreciate my players even more on a human level. What Vitor Hugo said recently is the truth: Davide is still with us.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“The lads who were here last season have done so well to pass that situation on to the new arrivals. We are a team with an extra reason to do well.“These lads were so strong and united in their grief. I simply told them to carry on what we had started with Astori. I always did get very fond of my players, but even more so with this group. I think what happened united us even more and made us feel stronger.”Meanwhile, when Cristiano Biraghi scored his debut Italy goal in the Nations League victory over Poland, he took his fingers high and formed the figure 13  which we think symbolises Astori’s number.“I was so proud of him after that goal, for the work we’d done together and his great desire to improve. Biraghi was always aware of his weaknesses and is one of those players I feel that as a Coach I can really help to grow stronger.“Federico Chiesa has a great chance of pace, can shoot with his right or left foot, and is approaching a level that will make him a complete player.”last_img read more

McClair Pogba needs more consistency to become worldclass

first_imgEx-Manchester United forward Brian McClair demands more from an inconsistent, yet talented, Paul PogbaThe French midfielder scored for the fifth time in last Sunday’s 2-1 win over Everton, but continues to be criticised for his rather underwhelming performances.United fans and critics alike believe Pogba is yet to deliver the kind of displays that saw the club fork out a then-world transfer fee of £89m to Juventus.But McClair, who used to be the director of United’s youth academy, knows first-hand just how talented Pogba is.And while manager Jose Mourinho reckons his happy with Pogba’s campaign, McClair knows the United academy graduate is capable of better things.The 54-year-old feels some more consistency from Pogba could help him on his way to true greatness.“Pogba is doing pretty well at Manchester United,” McClair told ESPN.Daniel Fark, Norwich City, Premier LeagueDaniel Farke, From mid-table in the Championship to the Premier League Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, has taken his team from the middle of the table in the English Championship to play with the big boys in the Premier League.“There is a bit too much social media nonsense, which is nothing to do with playing football, but Pogba has scored some important goals and played well in important games.“World-class players grab the main events, the semi-finals and finals for club and country, the biggest league games. France won the World Cup this year.“But I don’t know how many people would say that one particular player grabbed the whole thing. Pele grabbed World Cups, Garrincha and [Diego] Maradona too.“[Michel] Platini grabbed European championships. Real Madrid, with players like Cristiano Ronaldo, [Luka] Modric and Sergio Ramos, grab the most important games when it really matters.“They change games when things are going against you. Lionel Messi does the same. Cristiano did it when he was at Manchester United.“A top Manchester United player needs to be at least 7/10 every game. And in the proper big games you need to make some 10/10 appearances.”Pogba has managed five goals and four assists in 13 appearances across all competitions for United this season.last_img read more
