Hazard, the big news

first_img7 Eden He has spared no efforts throughout confinement to make his state of affairs present. The truth is, her bodily look was extremely commented and praised when she went to Valdebebas on Wednesday to bear the coronavirus take a look at. He was conscious that the break in soccer gave him the alternative to overlook simply three video games (Metropolis, Barça and Betis) as an alternative of the greater than twelve that have been initially stipulated. On this pause, in an interview in RTBFHe mentioned that “I shall be judged in the second season”, however in his head he’s really benefiting from this primary one. The restoration of Eden Hazard (29 years outdated) goes splendidly, as AS has been counting in the final month. On April 6 this newspaper reported that the optimism of the membership and the participant was complete, since the critiques after the first two weeks after the operation, the most vital to gauge its evolution, had been very passable: could be obtainable for the return of the competitors. On the 30th, furthermore, it was defined that the Belgian was not solely operating, however he had began taking part in ball at house. This wave of news for hope was endorsed this Monday, with Hazard’s presence in Actual Madrid’s first individualized coaching that COVID-19 has allowed. The membership itself has been in command of ‘exhibiting off’ its nice star via the official media, with the attacker making a profession and, additionally, accompanied by the ball. These two photographs have been a jug of phantasm in Madrid, desperate to return to get pleasure from that stellar Hazard who may solely cease an damage in a set with Meunier in November, when he was already retreating. Then he would relapse, on February 22 in the match towards Levante, being efficiently operated on March 5 in Dallas of a fissure in the proper distal fibula.Actual Madrid ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Actual Madrid Nonetheless is one thing quickly to consider Hazard built-in usually (as Asensio shall be in a position) together with his companions when the rules give the inexperienced mild to group classes.

Tweak eligibility rule – Ambrose

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua, (CMC):Legendary former pacer Sir Curtly Ambrose says tweaks need to be made to the controversial eligibility rule in order to have the best players available for West Indies duty.Sir Curtly, who currently serves as a West Indies team bowling consultant, said while he appreciated the objective of the rule, the overall focus should be on ensuring that the region always fielded its best XI.”I still believe that there are a few guys out there who I believe can play the ODIs and the Test cricket but there are criteria that you have to play the first-class cricket here in the region to be selected or eligible for Test cricket, and you have to also play the regional one-day tournament to play for the ODI [team],” Ambrose said.”I can understand that because you must have some structure, but I still believe that we should be looking to get our best team.”I am not saying guys should just walk into the team willy-nilly, but if there is a situation where guys are available and we are looking to get our best team, I still believe we should get them in.”Currently, the West Indies Cricket Board requires players to make themselves available for the Regional First Class Championship in order to qualify for the Test team. Similarly, players need to play the Regional Super50 if they are to be considered for selection for ODIs.However, many of the leading players like Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, AndrÈ Russell, Darren Sammy, and Sunil Narine all ply their trade in Twenty20 tournaments across the globe, often conflicting with the scheduling of Caribbean tournaments.For instance, the Australian Big Bash clashed with the Regional Super50 last January, and West Indies players opted for the T20 tournament.Weakened squadThis means that West Indies are likely to have a weakened squad for the upcoming Tri-Series in June involving South Africa and Australia.Sir Curtly, one of the finest fast bowlers the sport has seen, advocates for a better relationship between the players and administrators in order to address the many existing issues.”If you have a better relationship or a great relationship, I believe the cricket will get better because guys will go to play cricket feeling relaxed, knowing that their business off the field is being taken care of, so all they have to worry about is playing cricket,” the Antiguan said.”I honestly believe a better relationship between board and players will change our cricket and make it better.”last_img read more

Smith dazzles, Bravo holds nerve as Lions win IPL thriller

first_imgNEW DELHI, India (CMC):West Indies opener Dwayne Smith stroked an up tempo half-century, while seamer Dwayne Bravo remained calm under pressure to bowl a decent final over as Gujarat Lions held on to beat Delhi Daredevils by a single run in the Indian Premier League here yesterday.Playing at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, Lions piled up 172 for six after being sent in, with the right-handed Smith carving out 53 and opening partner Brendan McCullum top-scoring with 60.In reply, South African Chris Morris hammered a career-best unbeaten 82 to get the hosts within touching distance of their target.However, with 14 runs required from the final over, Bravo managed to hold his nerve and see the visitors over the line.The victory was Lions’ fifth in six outings and it pushed them top of the standings on 10 points, two ahead of the chasing Kolkata Knight Riders. Delhi, meanwhile, remained third on six points.FLYING STARTSmith and McCullum gave Lions a flying start, putting on 112 off 64 deliveries.In only his second game of the IPL, Smith faced 30 deliveries and clobbered five fours and three sixes, while New Zealander McCullum hit six sixes and three sixes in a 36-ball knock.Smith eventually fell in the 11th over when he missed one from leg-spinner Imran Tahir, which skidded on and was lbw.

Raging Prospect to burn rivals in Caymanas Park feature

first_imgIn the absence of a trophy race at Caymanas Park today, the three-year-old and up overnight allowance race over a mile takes the spotlight on the nine-race programme. Seven starters have been declared, including top contenders MIRACLE STAR, ROYAL VIBES, RAGING PROSPECT and BOLD AVIATOR. The Wayne DaCosta-trained ROYAL VIBES will have lots of supporters in this not-too-hot overnight field, having been a model of consistency even though failing to win a race in the last six months. The five-year-old son of Royal Minister-November Lace is ideally suited to a mile and is fit enough to land a blow under his in-form rider, Robert Halledeen. However, the fact that ROYAL VIBES finished behind RAGING PROSPECT the last two times they met says a lot for the chances of the 6-year-old gelding RAGING PROSPECT, from the stables of Patrick Lynch. RAGING PROSPECT, who beat the very useful MILITARY MOVE over this trip back in April, caught the eye when finishing two lengths second to PRINCESS SHINE over 2000 metres on September 5, a race in which he had the then favourite ROYAL VIBES behind in third, BOLD AVIATOR (fourth), MIRACLE STAR (sixth) and BLACK THORN (seventh). All renew rivalry today, but with RAGING PROSPECT coming down 4.0kg in the scales by virtue of the 4.0kg claiming allowance of promising apprentice Odean Edwards, he’s definitely the pick of the weights, with only 50.0kg. Blessed with good pace and in good nick for this race, RAGING PROSPECT should win at the expense of the Gary Subratie-trained BOLD AVIATOR and ROYAL VIBES. Other firm fancies on the card are MY COMPANION in the third race for maiden two-year-olds, BATTLE SONG in the fourth, AUNT HILDA in the fifth and LONG RUNNING TRAIN over recent winner ROYAL ASSAULT in the seventh race over the straight.last_img read more

High performance, recovery centres key for netball’s Daley-Morris

first_imgFor new netball president Paula Daley-Morris, a high-performance centre (HPC) to enhance and improve netballers and sportsmen and women in general and a National Recovery Centre (NRC) to help heal injuries and aid in recovery would be an ideal investment in the nation’s sportsmen and women when the new government takes office.Daley-Morris said that with the ever-increasing importance of sports and our sportsmen to the nation, having an HPC and an NRC would show the new administration that it is serious about assisting the nation’s sports representatives.”We would want a high performance centre, and we want a high-performance programme to be put in place for netball. We would really like the mechanics and different types of testing services, and when there are injuries, we need a national recovery centre with different hot and cold baths to help with recovery processes, improving the fine things around the game. We need somewhere to facilitate all that, so that would be at the top of my list,” she reasoned.However, Daley-Morris would prefer if Netball Jamaica provided the funding to implement programmes and the Government laid the infrastructure to take the sport forward.”I don’t view the Government as being responsible for those improvements. I think it is down to my organisation. What we would need is greater financial support for the changes because we have good plans on the table.”If our plans to spread the game across the island and have competitions in all parishes materialise, we need to have government support in terms of upgrading facilities in communities where we want to play games. We need bathroom facilities and changing accommodations in those areas,” she continued.But she commended the sports ministry and both parties for maintaining continuity even after a change of government.”I must commend the Government. I am not singling out any party because over the last 10 years, the Government has done a lot to improve sports in Jamaica. I really couldn’t say otherwise. First we had Portia Simpson as minister, then ‘Babsy’ (Olivia) Grange, and now, Natalie Neita Headley, and the three have run a good baton race. The passing of the baton has been great, and they continue to make steps,” she said ahead of Thursday’s general election.”Normally, we are used to a new government coming in and dismantling everything, but we saw a lot of continuity in sports, so we have to be grateful. But I think the reason that happens is because of the setting up of the Sports Development Foundation, which is an independent body that continues to grow sports,” she said.last_img read more

Brazil earn draw with late goal – Victory puts Jamalco on top

first_imgPecheeko Green’s added time equaliser earned Brazil FC a crucial point from a 1-1 draw with host Maverley-Hughenden in the second round of games in the Charley’s JB Rum Premier League playoffs, at Maverley Complex yesterday. Jamalco lead the standings with maximum six points after a 1-0 win over St James’ Granville FC at Wembley Centre of Excellence. Andrew Isaacs scored the winner at the 63rd minute. Maverley are second in the table with four points, followed by Brazil with one and Granville are yet to get off the mark. At Maverley Complex, the home team had the better of the opportunities in the first half and had only themselves to blame for not going into the break with an advantage. However, four minutes upon the resumption, they took the lead when Rohan Williams headed home from a corner. The home team’s hopes of taking three points were dashed when Green rose above a stagnant Maverley defence to head home from a free-kick just outside the area. Phillip Peddie had a great chance to win the game for the hosts, but he failed to score from six yards. Maverley’s head coach, Lijyasu Simms, lamented: “It’s a tough feeling. We lost concentration in the last minute. We didn’t take our chances and sometimes it ends like this. “But we cannot drop our heads because the journey continue and our aim is to get into the Red Stripe Premier League,” he added. Brazil’s coach, former Arnett Gardens striker, Kirk Ramsey, said: “The plan was to get three points, and if we can’t get three, we take one. “We came to Maverley knowing it was going to be hard, but we worked hard and picked up this well needed point. Now we can’t afford to drop another point, so we are going to work hard each game for three points,” he said.last_img read more

Rooney now Man United’s record scorer with 250 goals

first_img INCREDIBLE STRIKERS MANCHESTER, England (AP): It was a moment of drama and pride for Wayne Rooney but one tinged with disappointment for Bobby Charlton. Rooney overhauled Charlton yesterday to become Manchester United’s record scorer, coming off the bench to net his landmark 250th goal in stoppage time at Stoke to clinch a 1-1 draw in the Premier League. “(Charlton) came and congratulated me in the dressing room so I know he’s pleased in some way,” said Rooney, who has won the Champions League and five Premier League titles with United. “I’m a team player, but records are important. When you finish your career you can look back on it and it’s something to tell your kids.” Last January, Rooney moved past Denis Law to become United’s second-highest scorer on 239 and, now playing as a deep-lying attacker or in midfield, began the slow crawl to surpass the tally of club great Charlton – who was among fans watching the game against Stoke – that had stood since 1973. The 31-year-old Rooney, no longer assured of a starting spot in his 13th season at United, moved level with Charlton on January 7 and needed two more weeks to take the record outright. Rooney has scored 250 goals in 546 games. Charlton scored 249 in 758 matches. “I have become used to the honour of being the club’s all-time top goalscorer,” Charlton said. “We have had some incredible strikers here at Old Trafford and they have scored a lot of goals, but it has been fairly obvious for a while now that Wayne Rooney was going to be the one likeliest to break my record. “And now that day has come, I would be lying to say that I’m not disappointed to have lost the record. However, I can honestly say that I’m delighted for Wayne. He deserves his place in the history books.” Having already broken Charlton’s 49-goal England scoring record in 2015, Rooney has now completed possibly the final major feat of his illustrious – if turbulent – career. Setting the United goal record confirms Rooney as a modern-day great in English football, if not maybe the world game. Some will say he hasn’t quite reached the heights expected of him after bursting on to the international scene with such brio at the 2004 European Championship, or that he hasn’t kicked on from when he was arguably at the top of his game with United in the 2009-10 season. In that season, Rooney was at a level comparable to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. But his career has tailed off somewhat – save for certain standout periods – while Messi and Ronaldo have gone from strength to strength, competing on an annual basis for FIFA’s Player of the Year award. Yesterday’s results: Liverpool 2 Swansea 3; Bournemouth 2 Watford 2; Crystal Palace 0 Everton 1; Middlesbrough 1 West Ham 3; Stoke City 1 Manchester United 1; West Brom 2 Sunderland 0; Manchester City 2 Tottenham 2.last_img read more
