Spain draw 1-1 with Italy in Euro 2016 warm-up

first_imgFOOTBALL: UDINE, Italy (AP): Two-time defending champions Spain began their preparations for this summer’s European Championship with a 1-1 draw against Italy in a friendly yesterday. Substitute Lorenzo Insigne fired Italy in front in the 68th minute, sliding in to meet Emanuele Giaccherini’s cross. It was the first goal Spain had conceded in nearly 700 minutes. Italy’s lead lasted just two minutes before Aritz Aduriz levelled with his first international goal, tapping in the rebound after Gianluigi Buffon parried a header by Alvaro Morata — who appeared to be offside. Italy were the more dangerous side and Spain — who beat the Azzurri 4-0 in the Euro 2012 final to successfully defend their title — did not have a shot on goal in the first half. Spain goalkeeper David de Gea pulled off several saves, including two to deny Insigne, who was a real threat after coming on for Eder in the 51st minute. Buffon was rarely challenged. There was a minute’s silence before the match to honour the victims of the Brussels attacks as well as the 13 exchange students — seven of them Italian — killed in a bus crash in Spain. Wales also drew 1-1 against Northern Ireland, thanks to a last-minute penalty from Simon Church, while the Czech Republic began their preparations with a 1-0 home defeat to Scotland. Iceland also lost to a team which failed to qualify for the tournament as two goals in four minutes from Nicolai Jorgensen helped Denmark win 2-1. Cenk Tosun scored twice to help Turkey to a 2-1 victory over Sweden, which rested Zlatan Ibrahimovic, while Ukraine beat Cyprus 1-0. Elsewhere, Malta’s match against Moldova and Estonia’s against Norway ended goalless. Greece beat Montenegro 2-1.last_img read more

INF is based in the United Kingdom and it is also committed to developing grassroots netball throughout the world, including Liberia.Netball is a ball sport played by two teams of seven players. Its development, derived from early versions of basketball. It is played on a rectangular court with raised goal rings at each end. Each team attempts to score goals by passing a ball down the court and shooting it through its goal ring.Players are assigned specific positions, which define their roles within the team and restrict their movement to certain areas of the court. During general play, a player with the ball can hold on to it for only three seconds before shooting for a goal or passing to another player. The winning team is the one that scores the most goals. Netball games are 60 minutes long. Variations have been developed to increase the game’s pace and appeal to a wider audience, according to an official netball document in the possession of the Daily Observer.Netball was brought to the country through the kind courtesy of Football to Development Destitute (FODEDE), a local sports organization operating in the country.The Executive Director of FODEDE, Madam Rochell D. G.

Overseas-based Guyanese, custom broker robbed at gunpoint

first_imgMoments after returning home from transacting business in Georgetown on Thursday, an overseas-based Guyanese, along with a relative, of Nonpareil, East Coast Demerara (ECD), was held at gunpoint and relieved of $1.2 million in cash and other personal items by two men.Based on reports received, 36-year-old Riaz Ally, a custom broker, and Ramotar Mansingh, 45, of Lot 76 Section B Nonpareil visited the Republic Bank Branch at Triumph, ECD, about 10:00h and Mansingh reportedly withdrew $1.5 million.After the transaction, the two travelled to Georgetown and purchased building materials. However, after conducting business, the two men returned home in their motor car bearing registration number GPP 3666 and parked in the entrance to their property.As the two men were about to exit the vehicle, two armed men confronted them and ordered them to lie on the ground in the yard during which they committed the robbery. Ally was relieved of $100,000 in cash, two mobile phones, two gold bands and a gold chain while Mansingh was relieved of $600,000 in cash and a mobile phone.In addition, one of the men went into the vehicle and collected a bag containing $500,000 and at the same time, he discharged a round into the air. The two men then boarded a silver grey Allion motor car and made good their escape.After the men left, the Police were summoned and upon arriving at the scene, a .32 spent shell was recovered. In addition, four fingerprints were lifted from the victims’ vehicle. The Police are also in receipt of CCTV footage as they continue their investigations. Up to late Thursday evening, no arrests have been made.last_img read more

Fifth grade vs. the valley

first_imgSANTA CLARITA Lisa Foster’s gaze was intent as she wracked her brain for an answer. “I remember this,” the homemaker from Stevenson Ranch said. The question: Give me one example of a conjunction. “Conjunction junction, what’s your function,” Foster sang, recalling the 1970s “School House Rock” cartoon tune on grammar. “Is `ballroom’ the right answer?” A conjunction, according to the American Heritage Dictionary, is a connecting word – such as “and,” “but” or “because” – that joins two phrases. Foster’s answer was wrong, but she’s definitely not alone. According to “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” – the new top-rated Fox network show that proudly claims to be the “most embarrassing game show on the planet” – Foster’s attempt was typical. “You just forget things when you stop using the information,” Foster said. By pitting adults against 10-year-olds to see who can answer more questions correctly, “5th Grader” has become one of the season’s must-see shows. After meeting with the experts in Wes Storch’s fifth-grade class at Valley View Elementary School in Newhall, the Daily News went on the street to test the brains of Santa Clarita Valley residents. It seems the smarts in this valley are plenty. “Sodium chloride is salt, right?” Raquel Aguirre answered. The 18-year-old candy shop clerk is taking a biology class at College of the Canyons, and she remembered studying that recently. And while car salesman Bill Blair didn’t know a denominator from a numerator from his days in fifth-grade math, he did quickly answer how many feet are in a mile. “Five thousand, two hundred eighty,” Blair said with confidence. Homemaker Brenda Thompson knew right away that 13 colonies joined to become the original United States. But the mother of three said she thinks children are smarter these days. “Kids are smarter and pushed harder than ever,” Thompson said. connie.llanos@dailynews.com (661) 257-5254 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Drama in Stuttgart as Bayern go 11 points clear

first_img“Sven Ulriech is worth his weight in gold to us,” said relieved Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes, whose side host Borussia Dortmund in the third round of the German Cup on Wednesday.“If the players rest and free their heads, I am confident we can beat Dortmund again.”Bayern were frustrated by Stuttgart until Heynckes threw Mueller on for the final 25 minutes.The Germany international delivered when Stuttgart made a rare mistake, allowing him to smash home unmarked from the edge of the area.And Ulreich, back in goal after a groin strain, was the hero as he dived to save Akolo’s penalty after the video assistant referee confirmed Niklas Suele made contact with Santiago Ascacibar’s knee in the area.Brazilian defender Naldo scored in the 95th minute to snatch a 2-2 draw for second-placed Schalke at Eintracht Frankfurt, as they fought back from two goals down late on to extend their 11-match unbeaten run.“In terms of our mentality, we were very good,” said Schalke coach Domenico Tedesco.“We always believe in ourselves and push each other – the way this team has developed is super.”Having also scored a last-gasp equaliser when Schalke came from four goals down to sneak a 4-4 draw at arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund last month, Naldo again rescued the Royal Blues’ undefeated run in Frankfurt.Eintracht went ahead when Luka Jovic scored with just two minutes gone and then went 2-0 up 24 minutes from time when Sebastien Haller came on to drive in their second.Breel Embolo pulled a goal back for Schalke before Naldo hammered home from a speculative long ball to delight travelling fans and keep his team second.– Dortmund snatch win –Teenager Christian Pulisic, voted US Soccer’s Male Player of the Year for 2017 on Thursday, capped a great week by firing Borussia Dortmund up to third with the winning goal in a 2-1 home victory against Hoffenheim.Pulisic’s 89th-minute strike ended Dortmund’s miserable run of seven games without a win at Signal Iduna Park dating back to September.Hoffenheim took the lead when they attacked down the right and Mark Uth tucked away his ninth goal of the season in the first half.Dortmund got level again when Japan midfielder Shinji Kagawa was fouled in the area and Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang drilled home the resulting penalty on 63 minutes for his 13th league goal of the season.Pulisic then benefited from Kagawa’s great work in attack to tap home just before the final whistle.“We were lucky to get the second goal, the boys tried everything and threw the kitchen sink at them,” said head coach Peter Stoeger.The win was Dortmund’s second in a row under new boss Stoeger, who replaced Peter Bosz last Sunday, while Julian Nagelsmann’s Hoffenheim dropped to seventh.“We were too passive in the second half, but we didn’t deserve to lose that and had the clear goal chances,” said Nagelsmann, who is widely tipped to replace Stoeger at Dortmund next season.There was more drama at mid-table Augsburg as Iceland striker Alfred Finnbogason scored twice in injury-time to claim a hat-trick and grab a 3-3 draw against Freiburg.Finnbogason’s treble overshadowed ex-Bayern striker Nils Petersen, who scored twice for Freiburg to make it six goals in his last three games.Not to be outdone, strugglers Mainz also came from two down at Werder Bremen to poach a point in a 2-2 draw thanks to goals by Sweden international Robin Quaison and Swiss Fabian Frei, who equalised in the 93rd minute.Bottom side Cologne finally picked up their first win of the season, 1-0 over Wolfsburg, thanks to Christian Clemens’ second-half winner, but remain 11 points from safety.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000(L-R) Munich’s Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Mueller, James Rodriguez and Javier Martinez celebrate after Mueller scored against VfB Stuttgart on December 16, 2017 in Stuttgart © AFP / THOMAS KIENZLEBerlin, Germany, Dec 16 – Thomas Mueller came off the bench to score the winner and Sven Ulreich saved a 95th-minute penalty as Bayern Munich won 1-0 at VfB Stuttgart on Saturday to go 11 points clear in the Bundesliga.Mueller put the visitors ahead with 11 minutes remaining and keeper Ulreich saved Chadrac Akolo’s spot-kick leaving Bayern in pole position to win a sixth straight league title heading into the winter break.last_img read more

Coutinho opens Barcelona account in Cup win

first_img0Shares0000Philippe Coutinho put Barcelona ahead just four minutes after coming on against Valencia © AFP / JOSE JORDANMADRID, Spain, Feb 9 – Philippe Coutinho came off the bench to score his first goal for Barcelona in a 2-0 win at Valencia on Thursday that saw his new club ease into another Copa del Rey final.Coutinho broke the deadlock in the 49th minute of the semi-final, second leg at Mestalla, having only come on at the start of the second half. It was the first time the Brazilian had found the net since his blockbuster 160 million-euro move from Liverpool in early January.Ivan Rakitic then swept home the second goal eight minutes from the end as holders Barcelona secured a place in the final for the fifth season running, becoming the first side to achieve such a feat.Winners of the trophy in each of the last three campaigns, the Catalans will face Sevilla in the final set for the weekend of April 21 and 22. Sevilla beat Leganes 2-0 on Wednesday to go through 3-1 on aggregate.“For me it is my first final, so it is a very special moment,” Coutinho told Spanish TV station Gol.“I am very happy. I had been searching for this goal in my first few matches. Today I got it and it helped the team get through to the final.”– Treble dream alive –Valencia had been hoping to reach the final for the first time since they won the trophy under Ronald Koeman in 2008, beating Barcelona in the last four on the way.“Barca have been used to playing finals in recent years, but not so much in my case,” said Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde, for whom the win came on the eve of his 54th birthday.With Barcelona nine points clear at the top of La Liga and still in the Champions League, he remains on course to win what would be a remarkable treble in his first season at the club since arriving from Athletic Bilbao.“Of course we want to try to win everything we can, but I don’t like to talk about trebles until they happen. For the moment all we have is the possibility of playing in a final,” he said.Trailing 1-0 from the first leg after Luis Suarez’s strike separated the teams at the Camp Nou last week, Valencia did almost level the tie on aggregate early on. However, Rodrigo’s header beat Jasper Cillessen in the Barca goal only to come back off the bar.Lionel Messi had come close on a couple of occasions for the visitors in the first half, but it was the introduction of Coutinho that swung the tie decisively their way.Valverde sent his recent recruit on in place of Andre Gomes, and Coutinho quickly made his mark, turning in a Suarez cross at the back post.Valencia had centre-back Ezequiel Garay carried off and then saw Cillessen make an incredible save to deny Jose Gaya from point-blank range in the 74th minute.They were condemned to a sixth straight defeat in all competitions as Suarez pounced on a Gabriel Paulista error and set up Rakitic to make it 2-0 on the night.The only slight setback for Barca was the sight of centre-back Gerard Pique coming off hurt late on, with Colombian international defender Yerry Mina coming on for his debut.Valverde later admitted that he was suffering from muscle fatigue having gambled on his fitness at the start of the game.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
