Squads revealed as OFC U-20 championship kick-off nears

Posted on by

first_imgNew Zealand make a return to this level of regional competition after sitting out the 2014 edition due to their automatic qualification as host of the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2015.Bringing a wealth of experience to the squad are Moses Dyer and Clayton Lewis, both of whom made large contributions to Darren Bazeley’s 2015 U-20 world cup squad.Youngster Logan Rogerson, who made his OFC Nations Cup debut with the All Whites on his 18th birthday in Port Moresby earlier this year, will also be a key player. He made his regional debut for New Zealand at the OFC U-17 Championship last year and his star continues to rise.Tahiti – who pushed New Zealand all the way to a penalty shootout at that tournament in order to secure the title, have named a strong, experienced side themselves.Michael Maihi and Ryan Petitgas were key members of that squad along with nine of their teammates, and have the XV Pacific Games behind them as well.New Caledonia are another side which shone at U-17 level last year and while they will be without the likes of exciting up-and-comer Joris Kenon who is tied up with club commitments in France, coach Kamali Fitealeata has assembled a side with a mix of both the familiar, and the unknown.From the hosts Vanuatu the key player will no doubt be Bong Kalo whose experience on the regional stage belies his age. If he can combine with Sylvain Worworbu and Ronaldo Wilkins, both studying in New Zealand since the U-17 last year, coach Etienne Mermer will be feeling confident about his side’s chances.Just like Vanuatu with Kalo, Papua New Guinea are able to call on experience though it’s at the back where Felix Komolong does his best work. The lofty defender played every minute of the Kapul’s five OFC Nations Cup games in June and will be keen to keep Papua New Guinea football on the tips of tongues across Oceania.Fiji will be led by Mataiasi Toma, the midfielder having attended the FIFA U-20 World Cup means he knows the pressures associated with high level competition and will be able to guide his teammates as they attempt to repeat the feats of their predecessors in the Fiji U-20 jersey.Solomon Islands are bringing one of the least experienced sides but have proven time and again across all levels of the game that they are not a side to be underestimated.Having watched as the senior side progress to the semi-finals of the OFC Nations Cup there will surely be a drive to do something similar themselves.Like Solomon Islands, Cook Islands is among the least experienced squads heading to Vanuatu but recent preliminary competitions has seen a number of players test themselves at regional level.Several members of the squad helped qualify Cook Islands to this competition, some of them then went on to the U-17 Preliminary where Cook Islands just missed out on a berth in Tahiti next year.Defender Sunai Joseph was named in the senior squad that competed in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ Qualifiers OFC Stage 1 and although he didn’t make it on the pitch, the experience would have been invaluable.Additional Information:The OFC U-20 Championship is the Confederation’s premier youth competition and involves all 11 OFC Member Associations, with four competing in the Preliminary and eight in the Championship.The 2016 tournament will be the 21st edition of this event which for the first time, offers two berths for Oceania at the FIFA U-20 World Cup.With 12 titles, former OFC Member Association Australia holds the record for the most wins in this age-group, while New Zealand, Tahiti and Fiji have also claimed regional victories over the 40-year history of the competition.The 2016 OFC U-20 Championship will be held in Port Vila and Luganville in Vanuatu from 3-17 September 2016.Group AVanuatu (VAN)Fiji (FIJ)Papua New Guinea (PNG)New Caledonia (NCL)Group BTahiti (TAH)Solomon Islands (SOL)New Zealand (NZL)Cook Islands (COK) Vanuatu’s Bong Kalo in action at the OFC Nations Cup.Image: OFC via Phototeklast_img read more

Bordalás: “I am not surprised that the Lega has improved with Aguirre”

Posted on by

first_imgAre there casualties for the derby?Kenedy is in a period of rehabilitation, Angel will see if it arrives, although it is difficult and the rest are all.Will there be more movements in this market?In principle we are happy with the template and do not contemplate the possibility of more exits. We are always open to the possibility of improvement and that some player come.In what position can they be reinforced?If any player comes out we would try to cover that loss.How have you seen Etebo?It goes from less to more as usual. He comes from a different competition and had not been part of his team for a while. This week has been improving and it costs a little adaptation, but we are happy.Do they spin the three consecutive losses?After the victories I don’t think about the past and with the defeats I don’t change. If we have not won two League days without worrying, we know our goal and every day it is harder to win. It is no reason to be worried. We are optimistic and trust the team. I am convinced that in Leganés we will have a good game.What do you think of the change of Valverde for Setién?The termination of a technician is bad news and Ernesto has a lot of appreciation. It is unfair to cease it clearly. A team that is leading, I live in Champions and in the Cup. Whoever says otherwise does not tell the truth. In the Super Cup he played a great game against Atleti and it seems an unfair decision. Setién is a great coach and I wish him well. At its worst there were queues at dawn to get tickets.The fans expect this game with a lot of passion. That honors them for being next to the team and we cannot disappoint them with our behavior. We are obliged to give the highest level.How is the mood of the dressing room?We talked about that game and it’s history. The players are happy and they are seen as usual. We only thought of LaLiga after a few days when we were a little sad. We change the chip and we are focused.What has changed the Leganés with the experience of Aguirre?He is a great coach, he has always been and the experience makes him have more wisdom. I am not surprised that the team has improved. They are in good dynamics and with confidence. Has it been a great joy to get rid of En-Nesyri?I like the Leganés template. They have two players per position and a great squad. For us it is not a great joy, I suppose it will have been a joy for Leganés who has sold it for twenty million euros.For the fans it is a big day. Even more after the Cup hit?Now we are in LaLiga and it will be very difficult. It is a derby and they are in good dynamics. For both it is always an attractive match.center_img LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 16, 2020last_img read more

Champions League | Haaland makes Dortmund dream

Hazard), Sarabia (75 ‘, Di Maria), Schmelzer (90 ‘, Jadon Sancho) CardsReferee: Antonio Miguel Mateu LahozVAR Referee: Alejandro José Hernández HernándezWitsel (43 ‘, Yellow) Idrissa Gueye (53 ‘, Yellow) Neymar (58 ‘, Yellow) Meunier (86 ‘, Yellow) Verratti (88 ‘, Yellow Erling Haaland sat at Mbappé’s table and split it in two. The fashion boy of European football has no roof and this Tuesday he put it to the test again. First of all a PSG. Their two goals (he has eleven in just seven games with Dortmund) they gave the deserved victory 2-1 to a Borussia that was far superior to the group directed by Thomas Tuchel in practically the whole meeting. Of course, the nth Haaland show was stained by a small lapse of the BVB defense. He knew how to take advantage of a gray Neymar that ended up scoring a bit that can mark the qualifier. The Park of the Princes will decide.Both Germans and French were aware of what they were facing. You had to be very careful when giving too many spaces to trains like Mbappé in one and Haaland in another side, so it was the caution that reigned during the first bars of shock Of course, the bet went better to the locals. Five defense to defend the three musketeers of the PSG and deep lanes to attack. The staging ended deranging a Neymar who played bohemian, appearing everywhere but without hitting any pass. Unlike a Borussia that came out against it like a pack of wolves when the imperial Can gave the signal. Sancho and Haaland were 1-0 in their boots, but Keylor was attentive. He sent the BVB to a PSG who only recorded one shot in the first 45 minutes. There was no way to reach out to the Borusser defense and at the same time we had to watch out for baby Haaland. And it was just when Neymar and Mbappé woke up that his people lost sight of the Norwegian. Bad business A rejected Guerreiro shot fell on his feet and Haaland did what he knows best. Shoot. Goals that invite relaxation. Worse affair, especially when Mbappé arms you against and Neymar ties six minutes later. But there was Haaland. I didn’t have enough. It was his night. One more. Deep ball of Reyna, control and missile from 20 meters to the bottom of the network. 2-1. Dream Dortmund.

“Soccer will be less arrogant after the pandemic”

Posted on by

first_imgSwiss President Gianni Infantino, president of FIFA, assured on Thursday that football will come out “completely different” from the coronavirus pandemic and said that this sport will be “less arrogant and more welcoming”. “The time to think about football will return and when it arrives we will celebrate together the end of a nightmare. Football after the coronavirus will be completely different, more social and supportive, linked to territorial realities, but at the same time more global, less arrogant and more welcoming, “Infantino wrote in a letter published by the Italian media.“The only thing that will not change will be joy for a goal, hugging to share a joy. We will be better, more human, more attentive to the true values. Italy will come out of this, because in the hardest moments it knows how to give its best. I am at your side, dear friends, “he added.The president of FIFA, born in Switzerland but with Italian parents, sent this letter dedicated to Italy to show his closeness to this country in the emergency due to the coronavirus, which has already caused more than 13,000 deaths and more than 110,000 infected people. He acknowledged that he shares the suffering of Italians in this health emergency and asked to respect the precautionary measures ordered by the government, which extended movement restrictions to contain the pandemic until April 13.“My Italian heart is lacerated by the images of terrible suffering that show the tragedies that affect the families of our country. Today we must think about relieving the pain of those who suffer, we must follow the rules that scientists tell us to defeat this damn virus, “wrote Infantino.“Congratulations to the volunteers, I am next to the modern heroes, the nurses and the doctors. Congratulations to those who make solidarity gestures to buy masks and medical devices,” he concluded.

Dramatic draw for Chelsea

Posted on by

first_img Additional minute Struggling teams LONDON (AP): In an English Premier League campaign about restoring pride at Chelsea, the fallen champions still ensure their games cannot be ignored. It’s not just fascination with watching a wealthy team in decline. Yesterday, a dreary opening 45 minutes against Everton made way for a thrilling second half that started with John Terry’s own goal and ended with the captain scoring in the right net in the eighth minute of stoppage time to clinch a 3-3 draw. Even Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink – unbeaten since replacing the fired Jose Mourinho last month – accepted Terry was offside when he flicked the ball past goalkeeper Tim Howard in stoppage time. Everton manager Roberto Martinez was aggrieved that the referee played an additional minute of injury time when seven had been indicated on the fourth official’s board just after Ramiro Funes Mori made it 3-2 in the 90th minute. Everton led through Terry’s own goal and Kevin Mirallas’ strike on the turn before Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas scored for Chelsea. “There is an understandable feeling of disappointment in having to drop two points in a game that we had to play seven minutes of injury time with the last action happening in seven minutes and 51 seconds,” Martinez said. The surprise leaders once again were Leicester, the team that was battling relegation a year ago. And yet yesterday represented a missed opportunity for the team led by former Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri. By drawing 1-1 with bottom-place Aston Villa after Shinji Okazaki’s opener was cancelled out by Rudy Gestede, Leicester are only on top by a point. Arsenal can reclaim top spot by just drawing at Stoke today. Between Leicester and Arsenal are ever-present Manchester City. Sergio Aguero, twice, and Fabian Delph and David Sivla scored to power City to a 4-0 rout of Crystal Palace. There was a pair of significant wins, however, for struggling teams. Bournemouth halted a four-match winless run with a 3-0 victory over Norwich that was completed by $17 million record signing Benik Afobe, a recent recruit for the newcomers, after goals from Dan Gosling and Charlie Daniels. The win lifted Bournemouth a place above Norwich into 15th – only a point behind Chelsea. Newcastle climbed out of the relegation zone to move two points behind Norwich by beating West Ham 2-1 through first-half goals from Ayoze Perez and Georginio Wijnaldum. With fifth-place West Ham losing, it was an even better day for Tottenham, which moved four points ahead of its London rival by coming from behind to beat Sunderland 4-1. James Ward-Prowse scored twice and Dusan Tadic as Southampton beat West Bromwich Albion 3-0.last_img read more

Watson: Boyz ready for win over USA

Posted on by

first_imgATLANTA, Georgia: The last time Jamaica tackled the United States at the CONCACAF Gold Cup, they appeared primed for the battle, reeling off some good first round performances, including a 1-0 victory over Honduras at New York Red Bulls Stadium that was hailed as the country’s best display in decades. In the Honduras game there were seven changes to the Jamaica line-up, as the team had already qualified for the knockout stage and players were rested for various reasons. For the next match against the United States, in the quarter-finals, the same seven changes were made to the Jamaica team. They lost 2-0. On Wednesday, both countries will meet in the semi-finals of the Gold Cup and Je-Vaughn ‘Hacker’ Watson, one of the players who provided some star quality in a wonderful offensive display that night in New Jersey is very much at the heart of Jamaica’s team again and believes the time is ripe for a win “There’s no better chance to beat them than right now. We’ve a very good bunch of guys who are playing well both sides of the ball in attack and defence. We’ve to go out there and believe in ourselves and beat this team,” he said, after training on Tuesday at Emery University. “The US are a hard fighting team, they’re going to put their best foot forward, no matter what, they’re not going to give up, whether they’re down 2-0, 3-0, we’ve to be disciplined and make sure we come out victorious,” Watson explained. “Now I think the guys are more determined. We’ve a lot to prove as Jamaican players right now. You can see the difference, we’re not conceding goals like before. In the tournament we’ve played four games and we’ve only conceded two goals,” he pointed out. Both teams are unbeaten, with three wins and one draw in four contests. Jamaica have a losing record against the US, 13 losses, one win and eight draws. However, they have played strong in this tournament, registering five goals and conceding two, while the US have also been hot, pumping in 10 while letting in two. Clint Dempsey has been their talisman, netting six of the goals, including his first hat-trick for his country in Saturday’s 6-0 quarter-final hammering of Cuba. Watson says they will have to put a lid on Dempsey and Michael Bradley, the US’s other top player. “They’re top quality players, Bradley and Dempsey. Dempsey is a good goalscorer, if he gets a half chance he’ll put it in; Dempsey is a guy who dictates the pace of the game, he’s always on the ball, so we’ll have to go out there and try to lock those players down,” Watson said. The midfielder, who has won man of the match awards in two matches, missed the last game against El Salvador with yellow cards, as well as striker Darren Mattocks, who picked up a red  in the same match. “Coming back in the team I want to give a strong performance,” Watson said. “In the back of everybody’s mind we want to win the tournament and to win the tournament we’ve to get past the US. “The team vibe is good, I think anybody who goes out there is ready to die on the field. We’ve never beaten the US on US soil and everybody wants to make history and win the game. There’s no better chance than right now.”last_img read more

Watts rejects Francis’ claims

Posted on by

first_imgBEIJING, China: Team manager Ludlow Watts has rejected Stephen Francis’ arguments about the management of Jamaica’s training camp ahead of the IAAF World Championships. Francis questioned the usefulness of the camp and blamed the team’s management for causing some of his and other athletes to miss several days of training and compromising their preparation, with the World Championships just around the corner. The MVP Track Club coach said some athletes were given extremely difficult travel itineraries, which in some cases grossly extended what is a two-hour direct flight from Tottori to Beijing, while there were also issues at check-in at the team hotel in Beijing, with athletes waiting for hours before they were given keys to their rooms. These were among the issues that irritated Francis, who didn’t mince his words as he questioned the competence of the JAAA management group here, which is headed by Watts. “These people obviously can’t organise their way out of a garbage pan and they should leave it alone. Get some people who can do this properly, and I am sure there are people in Jamaica who can,” Francis had said. However, speaking to The Gleaner yesterday, Watts defended the travel arrangements made for transferring the athletes from Tottori in Japan, where the camp was based, and into Beijing for the championships itself and pointed to what he described as unavoidable delays experienced upon arrival at the team hotel. “If there is a criticism – and I don’t know where that is coming from, it would not be based on good judgement,” Watts rebutted before establishing his assessment of the camp, which ended on Tuesday. VALUABLE EXERCISE Watt, who also serves as treasurer for the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association, insisted that the camp was a valuable exercise and believes it was the best the team has organised in recent times. “Let me say that I am not 100 per cent satisfied with everything, but I believe we have made enough preparations to do well here,” Watts stated. “What I would say is this is the best camp we have had in history and we have had several. The feedback that we have had from the athletes, coaches, and management staff is that we have had a fantastic camp,” said Watts yesterday. “I think the mood in the camp is generally good. Nothing is perfect, but the mood is generally good.” “I don’t know if there was any difference from people travelling internationally, from Germany to France for instance. I think it was a normal transport arrangement, I think it was normal,” said Watts in reference to the travel arrangement made for the athletes. He also sought to explain the delays during the checking-in process at the team hotel in Beijing, noting that language issues and high traffic were the main reasons behind this. “When you get into a hotel when you have 10 other teams and 1,000 people coming in and five teams coming in at the same time, it cannot be as smooth as people walking through the alley, but we are satisfied with what we did with the resources available and the circumstances,” said Watts. The Jamaicans are sharing a hotel with several other teams such as the United States.last_img read more
