FIFA U-17 World Cup: Third-place finish a responsibility for Brazil

first_imgBrazil coach Carlos Amadeu has suggested responsibility of wearing the national colours will bear in the minds of the players as they take centre stage for one last time in the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup today.Brazil play African champions Mali in a third-place match here but the pain of losing out on lifting the World Cup has laid heavily on the boys, admits Amadeu.”We had a chance to get into the final but we dropped it. We now have the third place so this is what we are fighting for. For us, it doesn’t matter what match it is, donning the national jersey comes with a responsibility to win and that is we what are looking forward to,” he said on Friday.”It’s natural to become sad after losing a match like that, what happens after that depends on the players if they can recover immediately. The coaching staff had a meeting after the match. We talked that we have to come back and make our heads up because the players will watch us. So we tried to work as normal as we could be.”The South Americans reached their first semi-final since 2011 and while Amadeu looks at it as achievement of sorts, the coach believes the overall experience of the tournament will benefit the boys in the future.”The level of this competition was really high. We dad many team that could have won like Germany, Paraguay and France. The biggest take away is we have played seven games in the tournament it is a good experience for the boys and it will be important for their growth. We need more competition exposure for the youngsters so let’s see how things go from here,” he said.advertisementMeanwhile, ?Mali coach Jonas Kokou Komla remarked that a third-place finish in the Junior World Cup will be proud moment for the country.”We are sad that we couldn’t play in the final but a third-place finish will also be good. It will be an honour for the country. In Africa, we focus more on the youngsters and a collided group trains together for years for such big competitions. We have don’t have much resources like the Europe but we try to teach our boys what’s best for the game and that’s the reason why we are standing here,” he said.last_img read more

On this day in 1992, spin wizard Shane Warne made his Test debut

first_imgShane Warne, Australia’s spin wizard, played his first match on this day 26 years back in 1992 against India in Sydney.He finished with figures of 1/150, with his only wicket being that of Man-of-the-Match Ravi Shastri, caught by Dean Jones for 206. It was the third match of the five-match series which eventually ended in a draw.There was another debutant in that match, Subroto Banerjee, who made his first and last appearance for India. He scored 3 runs and picked up 3 at the cost of 47 runs.WATCH VIDEOWarne didn’t do much again in the fourth Test in Adelaide with figures of 0/78, meaning he finished the series with overall figures of 1/228 as he was dropped for the fifth Test.#OnThisDay in 1992, the great @ShaneWarne made his Test debut, against India in Sydney.He returned figures of 1/150, with his only wicket being @RaviShastriOfc. ICC (@ICC) January 2, 2018With the lessons learnt on his maiden tour, Warne honed his skills further, tweaked his bowling action a bit and went on to establish himself as the greatest leg-spin bowler in the history of the game. Warne went onto play a total of 145 Test matches, picking up a record 708 wickets, the second-most in the format behind Sri Lakan Muttiah Muralidaran. Warne also has 37 five-wicket hauls in Tests, again the second highest behind Murali’s 67 five-fors.Warne’s debut came 113 years after an Australian Fred Spofforth, made history when he became the first bowler to take a Test hat-trick, back in 1879. Warne’s only hat-trick came at his home ground, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, on Boxing Day in the second Test of the 1994/95 Ashes tour at home, after his career-best 8/71 in the second innings of the first Test at the Gabba.advertisementHe is also the highest run-scorer (3154 runs from the 199 times he came out with a bat in hand) never to have scored a hundred (his best is an agonising 99). He also played 194 one day internationals, picking up 293 wickets, since making his debut against New Zealand at Wellington in March 1993.Nobody can also deny that he was arguably the greatest captain Australia never had.Warne was known for his sharp cricketing acumen and quick thinking, which was evident in the Indian Premier League’s maiden season where he steered Rajasthan Royals to victory in 2008.But there were lows as well in Warne’s glorious career. The 2003 World Cup was supposed to be Warne’s swansong from one-day cricket.Australia, the defending champions, were expected to take home the World Cup again but the blonde leggie was thrown out of the tournament after he a failed drug test. He claimed he that he had taken a pill given by his mother to lose the double chin. But it all ended in disgrace.However, history will forever remember Shane Warne as the greatest leg-spinner and entertainer the game has ever seen. He played with a cheeky smile, he played aggressively and he played to win.During his heydays, Warne remained controversy’s favourite child but the crowds loved him wherever he went.last_img read more

Atalanta into Champions League Contention with Win at Napoli

first_imgNAPLES, Italy — Atalanta came from behind to beat second-place Napoli 2-1 on Monday and firmly put itself into contention for Serie A’s last Champions League spot.Adding another chapter to a career-best season, Duvan Zapata scored one goal and set up another to hand Napoli only its second home loss in the Italian league.Atalanta moved level on points with AC Milan, which holds fourth place on head-to-head record.The top four finishers enter the Champions League group phase.Napoli’s coach Carlo Ancelotti looks on prior to the start of the Italian Serie A soccer match between Napoli and Atalanta at the San Paolo stadium in Naples, Italy, Monday, April 22, 2019. (Cesare Abbate/ANSA via AP)Napoli remains second but is six points ahead of Inter Milan with five games remaining. Carlo Ancelotti’s club has won only one of its last four Serie A matches and was eliminated by Arsenal in the Europa League quarterfinals last week.Atalanta’s 66 goals are second only to the 67 scored by Italian champion Juventus.However, it took the visitors some time to find their aim following a first half marked by a heavy downpour at the San Paolo stadium.Mario Pasalic scored the winner in the 80th with an angled shot after being set up by a back-heel pass from Zapata.Zapata had equalized in the 69th by tapping in a cross after finally breaking free from center back Kalidou Koulibaly.The former Napoli player’s 21 goals ties AC Milan’s Krzysztof Piatek for second in the league, one behind Fabio Quagliarella of Sampdoria.Dries Mertens had given Napoli a first-half lead with a back-heel that deflected first off a defender and then his own backside before going in.Napoli looked set to go 2-0 up when Arkadiusz Milik chipped over the goalkeeper, but Atalanta defender Andrea Masiello cleared the ball at the very last moment. Goal-line technology showed most of the ball — but not all of it — had crossed the line.Lorenzo Insigne, who had very recently been considered Napoli’s top striker, never left the bench amid a reported feud with Ancelotti.Atalanta is also still in the Italian Cup semifinals, where it hosts Fiorentina in the second leg on Thursday following a 3-3 opening draw.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Krunal Pandya takes heart from spirited bowling show in Visakhapatnam T20I

first_imgIndia all-rounder Krunal Pandya on Tuesday insisted that the team has not lost momentum despite losing the series opener and instead taken a lot of heart from “almost defending” 126 at Vizag.Krunal was the best spinner in the game while pacer Jasprit Bumrah bowled brilliantly in his comeback game to take the match into the final over after a pedestrian batting performance.”It was a great bowling effort. Everyone chipped in and we almost defended the low total. We just have to be more cautious about our batting,” said Krunal ahead of the second and final T20 against Australia here on Wednesday.”Tomorrow is a very important game as we are 0-1 down but I would not say that we have lost momentum. We lost the other night but we are not losing consecutive games. I am sure we will do well tomorrow,” said the 27-year-old.The Baroda-based cricketer has become a regular in the playing eleven in the shortest format ever since making his debut in November.He has played 10 games, taking 11 wickets at 30.00 with best figures of 4/36 coming against Australia in Sydney. He has batted only five times in the 10 games, scoring 70 runs at 23.33.Training #MenInBlue sweat it out at the training session ahead of the final T20I against Australia#INDvAUS (@BCCI) February 26, 2019Asked if he would like to bat higher up the order than no. 7, where he batted in the last game, Krunal said: “Honestly, I am not thinking about where I want to bat. I am just focused on what is in my hands irrespective of the situation. I want to contribute with both bat and ball.”advertisementKrunal said it would be nice to have some part-time options in the team considering India only played five specialist bowlers in Vizag.”All the five bowlers who played are all quality bowlers. All are match winners on a given day. If you have options it is good but whatever is there we are fine with that.”Krunal also praised Australia for their effort on Sunday.”History says they are a competitive side and we know that they will give 100 percent every time they step on the field. We are mindful of that.”The wicket looks good here. It will be better than Vizag for sure. So we expect more runs,” he said.Krunal knows that he may not be in the team’s World Cup plans and despite the focus being on finalising the squad for the 50-over mega event, he said the second T20 is a “very important game”.Earlier in the day, the Indian team had an extensive training session with skipper Virat Kohli leading from the front.He was the first one to bat in the nets alongside Shikhar Dhawan before they switched to take throwdowns.Mohammad Shami, Kuldeep Yadav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who were rested for the series and have been training at the National Cricket Academy, joined their teammates briefly in the nets. Shami even had a decent bowling session.Dhawan was rested from the first game with K L Rahul getting to open alongside Rohit Sharma but from the way the practice session went, there were no indications on what could be the opening combination on Wednesday.Also Read | Peter Handscomb wants to don gloves in ODIs, ready to work on fitnessAlso Read | Fitting reply: Suresh Raina, Ajinjya Rahane, Yuzvendra Chahal congratulate Indian Air ForceAlso Read | India airstrike in Pakistan: Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir salute Indian Air Forcelast_img read more

NDP calls on Harper government to allow UN rapporteur to enter Canada

first_imgAPTN National News OTTAWA–The NDP is calling on the Harper government to allow the UN special rapporteur on Indigenous peoples into the country on an official visit.In a letter to Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird, the NDP foreign affairs critic Paul Dewar and the deputy critic of intergovernmental Aboriginal affairs Romeo Saganash say they are “concerned” Ottawa has yet to respond to a 13 month-old request by James Anaya, the rapporteur on Indigenous peoples.Anaya first approached the federal government in February 2012.“We ask that you quickly rectify this situation and approve Mr. Anaya’s request,” say Dewar and Saganash in the letter, dated Monday.Anaya has already received approval to visit Brazil, Australia, Finland, Norway, Sweden, New Zealand and the United States, the letter states.“Mr. Anaya’s request was standard procedure under the relevant procedures and rules of the United Nations and its member states, which state he is required to have the consent of the government of a country in order to enter it for an official visit in his capacity as UN special rapporteur,” the letter states. “At this point, Mr. Anaya is still waiting for a response from the government of Canada to his request.”Foreign Affairs told APTN National News last week that Anaya’s request is in “active consideration.”Anaya has made at least three requests to visit Canada but met with Canadian officials last summer and they discussed a number of issues related to his mandate.He said in a recent letter to the Union of BC Indian Chiefs that he will find a way to meet with First Nations leaders through unofficial channels if he doesn’t receive an official invitation from Ottawa.“If I do not receive a positive response from the government in the coming months, I can explore ways of meeting with First Nations leaders from Canada outside the context of an official visit,” writes Anaya.Anaya’s letter came in response to an invitation from Grand Chief Stewart Phillip, president of the UBCIC.Anaya’s term ends in May 2014.last_img read more

United States hits Canadian forestry industry with more duties — this time

WASHINGTON — The American government hit the Canadian forestry industry with more duties late Tuesday as it upheld counterveiling duties on Canadian newsprint.The United States Department of Commerce said in a statement that a preliminary investigation found Canadian exporters underpriced uncoated groundwood paper by between 0 and 22.16 per cent.Uncoated groundwood paper includes newsprint, as well as book publishing, printing and writing papers.“President Trump made it clear from the beginning that we will vigorously administer our trade laws to provide U.S. industry with relief from unfair trade practices,” Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said in a statement.Trudeau pledges Canada will not become dumping ground for steelForget NAFTA. America’s trade war with Canada has already startedOttawa triggers NAFTA Chapter 19 over punitive U.S. import duties on Bombarder CSeries, softwood lumberThe department said it determined Canadian exporters have sold newsprint in the U.S. at as much as 22.16 per cent less than fair value and it will collect cash corresponding to those rates.It noted that the maximum margin of 22.16 per cent is lower than the up to 54.97 per cent rate alleged by Washington-based North Pacific Paper Company, which made the petition to the department to impose the tariffs. It complained Canada was dumping newsprint into the American market and unfairly subsidizing its industry at home.Canada is the largest exporter of newsprint in the world, with a market dominated by Resolute Forest Products, Kruger and Catalyst Paper Corp. of British Columbia.The department calculated a dumping rate of 22.16 per cent for Catalyst Paper Corp., and all other producers excluding Resolute Forest Products and White Birch, which were both found to have dumping rates of zero per cent.The department’s investigation into the alleged dumping began in August 2017, and an International Trade Commission investigation began the following month.The department said a final determination in the investigation will be made in August.It’s the second time the Trump administration has slapped duties on the Canadian forestry industry in recent months.In December, the U.S. International Trade Commission upheld tariffs on softwood lumber after it determined the lumber imported from Canada is subsidized and injures the U.S. industry.Canada filed a wide-ranging complaint to the World Trade Organization in January about the way the U.S. applies punitive tariffs, directly tied to softwood lumber. read more

UN mission in Côte dIvoire investigating letter that warns of attacks

UN Mission officials are concerned that the letter – which also is reportedly circulating in villages that lie in Government-controlled zones in the west of the country – could generate fear within the various communities and lead to inter-ethnic clashes, the Secretary-General’s spokesman said today.Communal clashes, frequently preceded by rumours of attacks, have occurred before in the western part of Côte d’Ivoire, the UN Mission’s human rights division said. Human rights field officers from Daloa and Guiglo are jointly investigating the allegations.Côte d’Ivoire was divided into a Government-ruled south and rebel-held north after the failure of an attempted coup against President Laurent Gbagbo in September 2002 triggered a civil war. UNOCI troops and UN-authorized French Licorne forces have been guarding the Zone of Confidence separating the two areas in this nation, one of the world’s top cocoa producers.Earlier this month, Secretary-General Kofi Annan sent the Government of President Gbagbo a bill for damage to UN offices that occurred during several days of political unrest last month.The disturbances took place in the capital of Abidjan as well as Daloa, San Pedro, Guiglo and other parts of the country after a UN-authorized group recommended the effective disbanding of the National Assembly, whose mandate had expired.Meanwhile, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Côte d’Ivoire, Pierre Schori, met today with former president Henri Konan Bédié, the leader of the opposition Democratic Party of Côte d’Ivoire (PDCI), to keep the peace process moving ahead.At the meeting in Daoukro, the two officials discussed the latest developments in the peace process, particularly the conclusions of the fourth ministerial-level meeting of the International Working Group held in Abidjan on Friday. read more

M25 road rage killer Kenneth Noyes release from prison could be approved

Stephen Cameron (left) was stabbed to death by Kenneth Noye (right) in a road rage incident on the M25 in Kent in 1996 Stephen Cameron (left) was stabbed to death by Kenneth Noye (right) in a road rage incident on the M25 in Kent in 1996 Kenneth Noye, one of Britain’s most notorious gangsters, could be a free man this week as he awaits a ruling on his release application. The M25 road rage killer has been at an open prison in Kent for the past 18 months, and tasted freedom for the first time in 20 years last April after being taken to hospital by his girlfriend without any prison supervision.His fate will be determined on Wednesday, according to The Sun, and a spokeswoman for the Parole Board told The Telegraph: “An oral hearing has been listed for the parole review of Kenneth Noye and is scheduled to take place this month (May 2019).”A panel of the Parole Board will consider a range of evidence before making its decision. This will be done with great care and with public safety the number one priority.”It’s understood that if the panel decide Noye is eligible for release, he will be released within around three months.  Noye, who turns 72 on Friday, was convicted in April 2000 and ordered to serve a minimum 16 years for stabbing to death Stephen Cameron in a roadrage attack on the M25 in Kent in 1996. He had previously been acquitted in 1985 of the murder of John Fordham, an undercover detective who was part of a team investigating the heist.Noye stabbed Fordham to death in the grounds of his home, but claimed he thought he was an intruder.Mr Cameron’s father Ken told The Sun the timing was “heartbreaking”, with Sunday marking the 23rd anniversary of Stephen’s murder. He said: “The only way Noye should be allowed out is in a wooden box.”In the summer of 2017, the Parole Board recommended Noye’s transfer to an open prison, paving the way for his unsupervised hospital visit.Noye was pictured leaving Standford Hill open prison on the Isle of Sheppey where he was collected by his partner in a 4×4 and driven to a local NHS hospital for a minor procedure before being taken back to jail.The Ministry of Justice confirmed at the time the scheduled visit was unsupervised and that Noye did not wear an electronic tag.After murdering Cameron in a road rage incident on an M25 interchange in Kent, Noye went on the run but was caught in Spain after Danielle Cable, Cameron’s girlfriend, was flown out by police and identified him.Ken Cameron, the victim’s father, has previously talked of his disgust that Noye was recommended for open prison. “I am totally gutted. It’s devastating,” he said, “I have only wanted justice for Stephen. And I do not think that man deserves to be on the streets. He should die in prison, and I hope he does.” At the time he committed the murder, Noye was out on licence after serving eight years in prison for his part in the £26million Brink’s-Mat gold bullion robbery at Heathrow. A Ministry of Justice spokesman said: “Prisoners in open conditions are occasionally permitted a short period of unescorted leave for medical appointments, subject to stringent risk assessments.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Dollies Garden dedicated

first_imgDollie Lynch wasn’t able to take part Monday when a therapy garden was dedicated in her name at Southwest Washington Medical Center.Still, the Vancouver philanthropist had a chance to add her own touches to the layout before her death on Oct. 2. During a visit to the garden in September, Ed Lynch said, his wife had a suggestion.“She said, ‘You need some rhododendrons. And they’re in my yard,’” Ed Lynch recalled.So, three rhododendrons were transplanted from Dollie’s garden at home to the landscaped courtyard area now known as Dollie’s Garden.“This is a bittersweet moment,” said Joe Kortum, the hospital’s president and CEO.“This garden couldn’t be a more fitting tribute,” said Kortum. He then added, “On a personal note, it’s a very sad moment.”While it’s an outdoor garden, the courtyard — which measures about 30 feet by 60 feet — is completely enclosed by the hospital’s Family Birth Center. Work crews did not have the option of pushing wheelbarrows loaded with dirt and rock through the hallways of the birth center.Everything involved in the project — including supplies and equipment — had to be lifted from the parking-lot staging area, swung over a one-story segment of the birth center and lowered into the courtyard.“We had to go over the top of the building with a crane,” said Kelly Punteney, a Vancouver landscape architect who was part of the project’s management team.last_img read more

Rust developer goes prehistoric with Before survival game

first_imgYou may not recognize the name Facepunch Studios, but you’ll more than certainly know the developer’s games. First there was the multi-million selling Garry’s Mod, and more recently there’s being the highly successful Rust. Now Facepunch has announced its next game, called Before.Rust is a multiplayer survival game inspired by DayZ, Minecraft, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and is available in Early Access form on Steam. It’s a harsh world where individuals have been reduced to cavemen trying to survive by any means they can. However, it’s got a modern setting. Before is a big contrast to this. It’s still a survival game, but it’s set in a prehistoric world where you have to keep a tribe of people alive.Before isn’t a project that was created internally at Facepunch. Initially it was being developed as a spare time game by Bill Lowe, but by May of this year he and fellow programmer Päl Trefall had decided to team up with Facepunch to take the project forward.Because of this, you’ll notice and understand why there’s a big difference in art style to what Facepunch has produced before. It’s a much simpler, cartoon-style that works well with the setting. As for gameplay and details, not that much has been shared yet. You’ll be expected to forage and hunt for food, protect yourself from wild animals through combat, and find or build somewhere to live.Over time, and if you’re successful, your tribe should grow and mature, to the point where you have hierarchies and power structures. The Before website even suggests beliefs will form and rituals emerge within each tribe.The game is being developed in Unity and is expected to see a release on PC, Mac, and Linux. As Rust was a Steam game we can expect this to be, too. There’s no release date yet, but Facepunch is promising a playable alpha as soon as possible. To follow the progress of the project the best thing to do is follow @BeforeGame on Twitter and read the Before blog.Now read: DayZ griefers force captured players to sing their national anthem VIEW PHOTO GALLERY BeforeBeforeBeforeBeforeBeforeBeforeBeforeBeforeBeforelast_img read more
