Toure: Last World Cup produced the best-attacking midfielders

first_imgFormer Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has hailed the creative players at this summer’s World Cup. “I explain. I am happy to have been able to find players who cannot always express themselves freely and are loved when at the top of their artistic performance. To watch when I was a child. You know, those who were observed caress the ball delicately. With them, it seems that everything is always easy, even impossible. “We saw that the players who stood out the most were not those who, as before, only made differences with scoring. Of course, a Messi or a Neymar are also extraordinary finishers.

Third presumptive coronavirus patient in isolation in Florida

first_imgGov. Ron DeSantis has announced that a third person with a presumptive case of coronavirus is now under isolation in Florida.On Tuesday, the governor said that a California woman has tested positive for the virus in a state lab in Florida.The woman’s sister is also infected. Gov. DeSantis said both women recently returned from traveling to northern Italy, which doctors said is a hot zone for the virus.“She’s a resident of California, so technically won’t count as a case in Florida, but she is being isolated in Florida,” said Gov. DeSantis about the new patient. “And so it will count on the CDC’s statistics as a California positive, but she is currently in Florida under self isolation.”The California woman’s sister resides in the Hillsborough County where she lives with a roommate. Officials say the roommate will be tested and monitored.“There is a roommate, in addition to the sister, who is in isolation, has not been symptomatic yet, but obviously that’s something to monitor,” Gov. DeSantis said.The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still has to confirm the coronavirus diagnosis in the California woman. Until that happens, it will be considered a presumptive case.last_img read more

Jamaica to host CONCACAF Gold Cup double-header June 17

first_imgJAMAICA stands to benefit economically from its historic hosting of two CONCACAF Gold Cup matches on Monday, June 17.That was the assessment of CONCACAF president Victor Montagliani on Tuesday, shortly after he announced at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston that for the first time in 15 tournaments, a Caribbean country will host matches in the Caribbean.Two Group C matches, featuring two-time finalists Jamaica, Honduras and two other teams that will become known during the Gold Cup draw on April 10 in Los Angeles, will be played inside Kingston’s National Stadium.Moreover, beyond making history, the land of the Reggae Boyz will enjoy other benefits as well.“Well, first you’re going to have a lot of eyeballs on the matches from all over the world, not just a confederation audience but also an international audience. You’re going to have fans coming in, obviously the teams and their delegations coming and then you have VIPs,” he said.“I don’t have the exact number, but the economic impact to the region, to the city, to the country is quite significant because they will be here for three days, four days leading up to the match and so it’s not just the matches, there are training sessions, media sessions, so the impact is quite significant.”He said the idea to award Jamaica the matches is also in keeping with the mandate to reward the growth of the sport in the region, plus the country’s burgeoning reputation as a football power.“The first decision as soon as I became CONCACAF president was I felt we had the quality in the region to increase it (the Gold Cup) from 12 to 16 teams.“I saw some of the results. I saw some of the results from the last Gold Cup by some of the debutants, Curacao being one of them. And now what has happened in the Nations League, we saw some of the teams that qualified for the Gold Cup for the first time, like Bermuda, my intimation of that was correct,” Montagliani said.“The second was I always thought the way to increase the level not just on the field but off the field was to bring events.“Events that build capacity are the bigger events. That is where you get the attention of governments, of commercial partners, the corporate sector and so I thought it was important to bring the Gold Cup to the Caribbean. It’s never been done before. We know Jamaica’s long history, not only in the region but in the world. It was just a natural fit to bring the Gold Cup to Jamaica.”last_img read more

MLAX : Megill leads dominant defensive performance in win over Albany

first_img Published on February 19, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Ryne: rjgery@syr.edu Miles Thompson had nowhere to go. The Albany attack was helpless as he tried to break free from Brian Megill, who met him with shove after shove in the back.Finally, Thompson crumbled under the constant pressure, flipping the ball high in the air across the field with no recipient in sight before getting knocked to the ground by Megill.And as the ball rolled off the right sideline, the Syracuse defender motioned down the field with his right hand to signal the Orange would take possession with a chance to add to its six-goal lead.‘I thought Megill did a great job on Miles and really kind of tied him up a little bit,’ Albany head coach Scott Marr said. ‘Miles is our quarterback, and so we see seven goals. If Miles has a day, maybe we’re at 10 or 11 goals, and it’s a different story.’A dominant performance by the Syracuse defense helped carry the No. 7 Orange to a 12-7 victory over Albany in the Carrier Dome. The unit held Albany scoreless in the second and third quarters to build an insurmountable eight-goal lead heading into the final 15 minutes. The Orange kept its opponent off the scoreboard for a 40-minute span that stretched across all four quarters.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLed by Megill, who forced five turnovers and blanketed Albany’s top playmaker, the defense buckled down and limited the Great Danes’ opportunities after they jumped out to a 2-0 lead nearly eight minutes into the game.With SU in a man-down situation after two illegal body check penalties, Albany capitalized for two goals in eight seconds. Albany was playing with confidence and thinking upset.But SU didn’t panic and goaltender Matt Lerman gathered the defense for a quick talk.‘I have a great defense in front of me,’ Lerman said. ‘We went down a couple men early, and Albany got their first quick one, and I just looked at Brian and brought everyone in and I told them to keep playing some good, solid defense and stay out of the penalty box, and I’ll have their back.’Lerman and the defense kept Albany off the board for the final seven minutes of the opening quarter. Then the Orange offense started to click and evened the score at 2-2 heading into the second quarter.That’s when the Syracuse defense ratcheted up the pressure even more. After firing off 12 shots in the first period, the Great Danes managed just four in the next 15 minutes.Marr pinpointed his team’s lack of execution on offense in the second quarter as the difference in the game. The Great Danes continuously failed to get quality scoring chances.Meanwhile, Syracuse’s offense registered six goals in the period to make up for the slow start.‘They score a quick two on you, you think they’re going to try and get more,’ SU attack Tommy Palasek said, ‘but they held on down there and gave us the chance to score goals.’After halftime, with a six-goal lead, Syracuse continued its brilliant performance on defense. Megill harassed Thompson into his frustrating turnover early.And then the SU defender prevented a golden opportunity for Albany on its next possession.Megill poked the ball away as Albany moved toward the net with what would have been a one-on-one with goaltender Dominic Lamolinara. The SU defender then scooped up the loose ball and cleared it, keeping the Great Danes from getting a shot from in close.‘I thought our matchups were pretty good and the game plan going in,’ SU head coach John Desko said. ‘We really didn’t want to let those guys get too close to the goal because they are such good finishers.’By the time Albany finally scored its third goal about four minutes into the fourth quarter, the once animated Great Danes’ sideline was emotionless aside from a few coaches clapping.Marr and the Great Danes knew the game was already over. The scoreless second quarter was too much to overcome.And Marr could only wonder how the story would have been different if the Syracuse defense hadn’t stifled his team in that decisive period.‘We just executed poorly, especially on the offensive end,’ Marr said. ‘And I think if we had done a better job of that in the second quarter, the game wouldn’t have gotten out of hand.‘We would have been in it at halftime, and it would have been a different game.’rjgery@syr.edu Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
