1×1 of Atleti: Saul plus a wall

first_imgKoke: Fallen to the right, he emptied himself helping Vrsaljko and trying to cover roads in the middle. His first action was the corner kick taken in the 4 ’for Saul’s goal. He tried to put temper when the ball reached his feet and combined well both on the right and on the left, where he played in the second half.Thomas: Well plugging in the middle, although cheek with the ball on the feet. He had a couple of losses that unhinged Simeone and could put the team in trouble. At the end of the first half he tried a distant shot that came near the post. In the addition he tried from the center circle too.Saul: As in many other great Champions nights, there was Saul’s goal. At first, he took advantage of a loose ball in a corner to make the 1-0. Then he had to work in the middle and fulfilled, also giving way to the team. In addition, it is one of the tricks that Oblak looks for in long balls.Lemar: The bell of the starting team. Nobody was waiting for him, but he formed a lane with Lodi before Alexander-Arnold and Salah. They got along well and even allowed some climbs through the band, very cautiously. He had a good chance after a long shipment of Felipe to the uncheck, although it was out of play. Replaced in the break by Llorente.belt: He stood on top next to Morata with a double mission, hindering the exit of Liverpool and flocking the balls combed by his attacking partner. In the former he emptied and in the latter he was less fortunate. Alternate good controls with conduits in which the ball was left behind. Changed in 77 ‘under a strong ovation.Morata: The team’s battering ram also emptied. He tried to make the team long when he had the ball, but it cost him too much. Yes, he won numerous balls launched by Oblak, although with little continuity. In the 25th minute a great personal play was stewed, with a cut over Fabinho, but Alisson took it 2-0. After the break he was physically weakened, although he did not lower his dose of effort. In 66 ’he got a perfect satin ball to shoot, but he tripped before finishing off. Changed in the 70’s.Substitutions:Llorente: He entered after the break for Lemar and placed himself on the right. His first action was to reach the bottom line and serve Vrsaljko behind, who messed up and didn’t finish off.Vitolo: He entered Morata in the 70’s and placed on top.Diego Costa: He entered 77 ‘by Correa and burst the Wanda Metropolitano. Well with the ball and playing over. He had them with Van Dijk. He sucked on a pacifier against the additive and kicked out. Oblak: In the first part he did not try Liverpool, although much of the time was played around his area. He had a very gross mistake with the foot that the visitors took advantage of to score, but offside. In the second half he was shot more, but he didn’t have to grab a ball until 85 ‘.Vrsaljko: One of the eleven surprises, they were seen with Mané in an intense duel. In the first part Koke helped him well and they won almost all duels. It even caused a yellow to the red striker. In 49 ‘he had a good chance after a pass back from Llorente, but he did not finish first and lost the ball. He was accusing fatigue in individual duels before Robertson and Origi.Savic: Surely, great tandem with Felipe, with whom he did not stop talking to share the task and monitor Firmino. Well in the clearings with the head and with the feet, and without complicating in game, touching towards Oblak or in long to the ends. That said, in 65 ‘he threw a ball diagonally towards Lodi that gave rise to the best play of the second half. Great.Philip: He is the leader of the defense and one of the team. Huge match of the Brazilian. In the 36th minute he aborted the best chance of the locals, clearing with the body a shot of Salah that was very dangerous. Inexpugnable above and powerful in anticipation. It is essential.I gave it: It was a very hard exam for him and he took it forward. In the first part, in fact, he was one of the highlights. In the 20th minute he set up a very dangerous threaded center that miraculously saved Van Dijk. He kept Salah at bay. In the second half the band also went up as often as the match allowed and exhibited the quality it treasures. In 66 ’he served a low ball to Morata that could be 2-0. In ’71 he tried it from afar, but found no goal. It seemed that fatigue could, but he ended up with energy and great races for the band. It has gained a huge dose of trust from Simeone and everyone. Simeone surprised with the alignment, especially with the entry of Lemar in the center of the field, after two months without being a starter. The sides, where there were also doubts, were starting for Vrsaljko and Lodi. The coach made an appointment in which the soft drink players had to be important. The first act went perfectly, although with certain doses of suffering.last_img read more

BBL head labels Gayle comments ‘Disrespectful and simply inappropriate’

first_imgHOBART, Tasmania (CMC):The Big Bash League (BBL) has blasted comments by Chris Gayle made to a female reporter during a live television interview as “disrespectful and simply inappropriate” and says it will be meeting with the West Indies star over the matter.Following his explosive 41 for Melbourne Renegades yesterday at the Bellerive Oval here, Gayle openly flirted with Network TEN’s Mel McLaughlin during the interview, telling her: “I wanted to have an interview with you as well, that’s why I’m here.”He added: “I get to see your eyes for the first time, it’s nice. Hopefully we can win and go for a drink after.”Don’t blush, baby.”However, BBL head Anthony Everard said Gayle’s behaviour had no place in the glitzy Twenty20 tournament.CONDEMNATION”I heard Chris’ comments and they’re disrespectful and simply inappropriate. We’ll certainly be talking to him and the Renegades about it,” Everard said.”This league is all about its appeal to kids, families and females. There’s just no place in the BBL – or, for that matter, cricket anywhere – for that sort of behaviour.”The Renegades franchise also condemned Gayle’s remarks, echoing similar sentiments to those of the BBL head.”I heard Chris’ comments and we agree with both Cricket Australia and Channel TEN that they’re disrespectful and simply inappropriate,” Renegades Chief Executive Stuart Coventry said.”We’ll certainly be talking to him in association with Cricket Australia about it. The Melbourne Renegades is all about its appeal to kids, families and females. There’s just no place for that sort of behaviour.”Channel 10 subsequently announced they would be dropping Gayle as an interview option.”We won’t be using (Gayle) in the game anymore,” Channel TEN’s head of sport David Barham said. “Unless things change in the next few days, it’s not happening.”Renegades captain Aaron Finch, with whom Gayle shared a sizzling 84-run first-wicket partnership off 36 balls to set up yesterday’s win over Hobart Hurricanes, said the Jamaican had apologised to McLaughlin.”Chris has apologised to Mel. As an organisation, we don’t condone it,” Finch said following the five-wicket win.”Between Chris and everyone else, they’ve addressed it … he’s apologised.”last_img read more

Senate Takes Two-Week Break

first_imgPlenary and executive sessions in the Chambers of the Senate will be officially put on hold when Senators of the 53rd Legislature go on a two-week Easter break. The Senators are expected to use the break to carry on a sensitization and awareness campaign on the outbreak of the Ebola virus.The Senate’s break comes in the wake of decisions taken by the Upper House aimed at containing the virus that has already taken at least 10 lives.The first action by the Senate plenary during news of the outbreak was a unanimous vote requesting President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf to declare a state of emergency and subsequently close Liberia’s borders with neighboring countries. It is, however, not clear whether the House of Representatives will concur with the Senators.Authorities at the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare had earlier informed the Government that to effectively fight and contain the virus, it needs a budget of US$1.2 million.On Thursday, the Liberian Legislature requested the Executive to re-enforce the moratorium on all hunting activities until the country is free of the deadly Ebola virus.The Legislature assured the relevant ministries and agencies of Government and international partners of its support to rapidly respond and prevent any further spread of the virus in Liberia.During a Joint Leadership meeting at the Capitol Building attended by the Chairman of the Cabinet, Internal Affairs Minister, Health authorities and the Resident Representative of the World Health Organization, the Legislature was briefed on the current situation and measures the Health Ministry is implementing to arrest the threat the Ebola virus poses to Liberians.Both House Speaker Alex Tyler and Senate Pro-Tempore Gbehzohngar Findley assured health authorities during the meeting that the Legislature would help mobilize resources to upgrade surveillance for case management, infection control and social mobilization.The Acting Chairman of the Cabinet, Internal Affairs Minister Morris Dukuly, and Health Minister, Dr. Walter Traub Gwenigale, told the Legislature that with support from their partners, they would continue to provide the necessary guidance, updates and resources to contain the outbreak.Meanwhile, in view of suggested measures to prevent the virus’ outbreak in schools and congested areas, the Legislature has called on the Ministry of Education to adjust the 2014 School Calendar by announcing an early Easter Break in Schools around the country.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Rob Sirleaf ‘Declined Consular Job’

first_imgThe Ministry of Foreign Affairs has disclosed that Robert A. Sirleaf declined his appointment as Counselor for Commercial Affairs, Embassy of Liberia to Brussels. However, the House’s Joint Committee is unsure of the details surrounding Sirleaf’s refusal to take up the position, and has requested detailed evidence on the rejection.The co-Chairman on the House’s Foreign Affairs Committee, Larry P. Younquoi, told the Daily Observer in an exclusive interview via mobile phone yesterday that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs last week informed the Joint Committee in a preliminary investigation that Mr. Sirleaf did indeed reject his appointment. “Besides asking the ministry to provide us with documents to prove whether Mr. Sirleaf resigned or immediately resigned after his informal or formal appointment, we also asked them to furnish us with all the embassies that have Consular of Commercial Affairs,” Rep. Younquoi said.“Plenary has already given us an additional week, and we hope to report before Tuesday, July 19.”On Thursday, July 7th during the 43rd Day sitting, the House’s Plenary unanimously granted an additional one week extension to the Joint Committee owing to an appeal from Rep. Younquoi.Though Rep. Younquoi did not say, an aide in his office said the Foreign Ministry has also admitted to Mr. Sirleaf’s appointment, which has been since 2011, but was made public on February 26, 2016 under the signature of Acting Foreign Affairs Minister Sylvester M. Grisgsby in a letter to the Charge d’Affaires at Liberia’s embassy in Belgium, Comfort Swengbe.It may be recalled that the House’s Plenary, on June 28 during the 40th Day Sitting, mandated two of its leadership committees, Judiciary and Foreign Affairs, to conduct a thorough probe and advice the august Body within a week, on why the President’s son should not be held in contempt.Plenary’s decision was prompted owing to a letter from Maryland County District # 2 Representative, Dr. Bhofal Chambers, urging his colleagues to invite the President’s son and the Minister of Foreign Affairs to explain about the commercial benefits that have been accrued to Liberia since Sirleaf’s role as Counselor for Commercial Affairs at the Liberian Embassy in Brussels.Dr. Chambers, who is also Chairman on National Defense, argued that Mr. Sirleaf was appointed as Counselor for Commercial Affairs on February 6, 2012, while he was serving as Senior Advisor to President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf and the Chairman on the Board of Directors of the National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL).According to Mr. Sirleaf’s letter of appointment, a copy of which is in the possession of the Daily Observer, written by Acting Foreign Affairs Minister Sylvester M. Grisgsby to the Charge d’Affaires, Comfort Swengbe:“Mr. Sirleaf’s appointment reflects Government’s desire to intensify and deepen commercial and investment relations between Liberia and Belgium in particular and the European Union in general. Although the appointment was made nearly a year ago, it is now being effected especially after the inauguration as an indication of the trust of the new administration to engage the private sector of Belgium and the EU in Liberia’s reconstruction and economic development.” It may also be recalled that in September 2013, Mr. Sirleaf resigned his two top posts as NOCAL Chairman and Advisor to the President.It has been established that the President’s 56 year-old son did not resign voluntarily, but did so in an attempt to bolster the President’s ‘willingness’ to curb nepotism in her government amidst bad press and international pressure.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Agree with our all-time best XI of Chelsea’s Premier League title-winners?

first_img 4. Centre back: John Terry (titles in 2005, 2006, 2010, 2015 and 2017) – Little needs to be written of Chelsea’s ‘Captain, Leader, Legend’. Terry will never be forgotten at Stamford Bridge, going down in history among the greatest players to ever wear the Chelsea shirt. 11 10. Centre forward: Didier Drogba (titles in 2005, 2006, 2010 and 2015) – Drogba slowly settled into the Chelsea team, but after establishing his spot up top he never looked back. He scored 164 in two spells with the club, helping the club to four Premier League titles. And the rest. 2. Right back: Cesar Azpilicueta (titles in 2015 and 2017) – Azpilicueta is Chelsea’s Mr. Reliable. Whether at left-back, centre-back or right-back, the Spaniard almost always delivers for his manager. He’s established a place in the hearts of the Stamford Bridge faithful. 8. Centre midfield: Frank Lampard (titles in 2005, 2006 and 2010) – It wouldn’t be an all-time Chelsea XI without Frank Lampard featuring. It’ll take a very, very special talent to come close to breaking his record as the Premier League’s highest scoring midfielder and as Chelsea’s all-time top scorer. 11 1. Goalkeeper: Petr Cech (won the title in 2005, 2006, 2010 and 2015) – click the arrow above, right, to check out our full all-time XI made up of Chelsea’s Premier League title-winners – Thibaut Courtois may have forced Cech out of the club, but his status as Chelsea’s greatest goalkeeper is so far unchallenged. The Blues’ current number one has a long way to go before being spoken of in the same glowing terms as Cech, even if he did join rivals Arsenal. 11 3. Centre back: Ricardo Carvalho (titles in 2005, 2006 and 2010) – One of Jose Mourinho’s best signings during his two spells in London, Carvalho developed an instant understanding with John Terry in the heart of Chelsea’s defence. They went on to form one of the most formidable centre-back partnerships in Premier League history. 7. Centre midfield: Claude Makelele (titles in 2005 and 2006) – The heir to Claude Makelele’s throne. Kante might only just be approaching his one-year anniversary as a Chelsea player, but already he’ll be remembered among the best midfielders to play for the club. The Frenchman has been imperative to their title success this season. 5. Left back: Ashley Cole (won the title with Chelsea in 2010) – During the peak years of his career, Cole was widely considered the best left-back in world football. It’s difficult to think of any better in this position in Premier League history. 11 11 11 Antonio Conte and his Chelsea team have joined an exclusive list of those to win the Premier League trophy at Stamford Bridge.In the days following their confirmed triumph for the season, there has been plenty of comparisons between the current crop of players and those who have previously claimed the honour.So in an all-time Premier League title-winning team, who would make the cut for Chelsea?Scroll through the gallery above to find out which XI has been selected in our team. 11 11 11 9. Right attack: Joe Cole (titles in 2005 and 2006) – It’s a tough call between Cole and Arjen Robben, and the former gets the nod from us. He played an integral role to Chelsea’s first Premier League title in 2005, with the winger taking full advantage of injuries to Robben and Damien Duff. The next season resulted in a second successive title and he earned his place in the PFA Team of the Year. 11 11 6. Centre midfield: N’Golo Kante (2017 title winner) – Kante might only just be approaching his one-year anniversary as a Chelsea player, but already he’ll be remembered among the best midfielders to play for the club. The Frenchman has been imperative to their title success this season. The heir to Claude Makelele’s throne. 11. Left attack: Eden Hazard (titles in 2015 and 2017) – Hazard was the outstanding player in the title win of 2014/15 and ran Kante close this season. He’s made history of his terrible 2015/16 campaign to return to being one of the Premier League’s most intimidating forwards.last_img read more
