England finally wins penalty shootout at World Cup

(AP Photo/Victor R. Caivano)MOSCOW — In a World Cup of surprises, England provided the latest by finally winning a penalty shootout.A long run of penalty misery on soccer’s biggest stage ended with a 4-3 shootout victory over Colombia on Tuesday, sending England to the quarterfinals for the first time in 12 years.ADVERTISEMENT Taal victims get help from Kalayaan town With a fresh generation of players not burdened by past misery, England coach Gareth Southgate has helped to banish painful memories of his own: Missing the final kick at Euro ’96 against Germany.After exiting the 2014 World Cup without winning a game in the group stage, the squad has been remodeled with a youthful, more street-wise mentality by Southgate at his first major tournament as coach.___Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Harvey Weinstein rape trial Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Harry Kane gave England the lead with a penalty kick in the 57th minute.

Overseas-based Guyanese arrested for firing shots with illegal gun in Parika

first_img…claims gun was for his “protection” while in GuyanaAn overseas-based Guyanese will soon be arraigned before a court of law for discharging a loaded firearm in the air on Sunday night, thereby scaring a number of residents at Parika, East Bank Essequibo (EBE).Reports are that the man, who is on vacation from the United States, was spending time with relatives at Parika. This newspaper was told that the overseas-based Guyanese was caught driving a car and firing shots as he made his way through the streets of the village.A Police source told this publication that the man admitted to owning the illegal firearm, which he claimed he had obtained to “ensure his safety” for the duration of his stay in Guyana.Speaking with this newspaper, Commander of “D” Division, Edmond Cooper, said the Police received reports from residents in Parika that shots were being fired, and upon a prompt response by the Police, the man was nabbed.“We caught him with the illegal firearm in his possession. He was immediately arrested and placed in our custody. He will be placed before the court before this week is out,” Cooper confirmed.Suspected banditsMeanwhile, in relation to another incident which occurred on the same night at Ruby Backdam, Parika, wherein three suspected bandits were arrested while two others had managed to escape, the commander explained that the detainees are being interrogated for other crimes they may have committed recently.“We are carrying out the investigation right now with them. We are questioning them as to whether they were involved in other criminal activities in this policing district. We have got their firearm; they will be charged for court soon; sometime this week,” he said.Last Sunday night, a resident of Ruby Backdam was driving along the main access road heading towards his home when he came under gunfire.He had reportedly attempted to overtake two cars – a Carina 212 and a Toyota Premio — when the occupants opened fire. However, he had managed to escape, and had immediately contacted the Police.A cousin of the traumatised man explained that upon the arrival of the Police, as ranks were making their way into the Backdam, they reportedly intercepted one of the cars, which had five occupants.When the car came to a halt, two of the men exited the vehicle and ran into the bushes. The Police reportedly discharged rounds in their direction, but the two suspected bandits managed to make good their escape. The other three occupants in the detained car were immediately arrested.Upon searching the vehicle while the trio were being arrest, a gun and a quantity of ammunition were discovered inside the motor car.The cousin of the traumatised Ruby resident has said that villagers are fearful for their lives, given that the two men remain at large.He recalled that, about two months ago, a businessman was shot and killed during the commission of a robbery, and he said he believes the group of men who had been intercepted were on a mission to commit other robberies in the area.Somdat Ramgobin, 46, also known as “Rakesh”, was killed in mid-May when bandits invaded his Parika Backdam home.It was reported that two men had entered the premises — one brandishing a gun – and had asked for “Rakesh”. The men had then proceeded to call out to Ramgobin, who responded and was immediately attacked with a glass bottle and beaten to his head and body.The duo had then demanded cash, and were given some $600,000 by the now deceased man. Unsatisfied, the men had demanded jewellery; and after being told there was none, had taken Ramgobin to a bedroom in his house, where they shot him to his chest.last_img read more

Maradona: playing genius but coaching misfit

first_img0Shares0000Diego Maradona was mobbed at Culiacan airport after he flew in to be presented as coach of Mexican second-division club Dorados © AFP / PEDRO PARDOBUENOS AIRES, Argentina, Sep 10 – As much as he was a genius with the ball at his feet, Diego Maradona’s coaching career has been far from distinguished and took a curious turn when he joined Mexican second-division outfit Dorados.The man who led Argentina to just their second World Cup crown — according to many almost single-handedly — and whose brilliance inspired Napoli to the only two Serie A titles in their history, has ploughed a less succesful coaching furrow. With a cultured left foot and mesmerising dribbles he was twice signed for a world record fee, first by Barcelona and then Napoli.He played for some of Argentina’s biggest and most prestigious clubs: Boca Juniors, Newell’s Old Boys and Argentinos Juniors, while also representing his country 91 times and scoring 34 goals.“If I die, I want to be born again and play football to give the people joy,” he once said.Father time has long caught up with the 57-year-old, though, as he wryly notes: “I have shorter legs than a picture frame, if I want to train I get torn all the way up to the shoulders.”After the glittering playing highs, his coaching career, barring a two-year stint in charge of the Argentine national team, has been largely spent far away from the glitz and glamour.– Unmitigated failures –This is not the first time he’s taken charge of a second-division side — he left Al Fujairah of the United Arab Emirates in May after failing to guide them to promotion despite seven wins in 11 matches.Other spells at Deportivo Mandiyu and Racing Club in Argentina and UAE’s Al Wasl were unmitigated failures.During the first two, from 1994-95, he won a combined three out of 23 matches and subsequently resumed his playing career, albeit briefly.In this latest quest he can only improve the team’s performances given they have yet to win a game this season.The club’s fans seem unperturbed by his poor coaching record, with one holding up a placard proclaiming: “Welcome golden god!” as Maradona arrived at the Culiacan airport on Saturday.One teenage fan, Bryan Felix, has faith that even at 57, Maradona can still improve.“His other coaching experiences weren’t good but that’s the same for other coaches when they started,” he said.Diego Maradona says he has happy memories of Mexico where he scored two famous goals against England in the 1986 World Cup © AFP / STAFFMaradona’s first coaching experience was five years before Felix was even born.Dorados president Jose Antonio Nunez is another beating the same drum, attempting to find a positive twist on his high-profile signing’s record.“He knows what it’s like to start from the bottom, he knows the value of a lower league,” he said.– ‘Happy memories’ –Maradona has a special affinity for Mexico as it was there that he enjoyed his finest hour, leading Argentina to a 3-2 victory over West Germany in the 1986 World Cup final.At the weekend he wrote on Instagram that he was “happy to return to the land where I was world champion and where I retain very happy memories”.He will do so while retaining his other official positon, as honorary president of Belarusian outfit Dinamo Brest, a post he only took up in July, but to great fanfare as he was paraded around town to cheering crowds and given a diamond ring.That would have come in handy for someone who has suffered financial difficulties in recent times, not least with a multi-million euro unpaid Italian tax bill hanging over his head.It might explain his need to take up a coaching position in such a relative backwater.It’s also an ideological fit for a man who was friends with two of Latin America’s most famous socialist leaders: Cuba’s Fidel Castro and Hugo Chaves of Venezuela, and sports a tattoo of revolutionary icon Che Guevara.Diego Maradona is also acting as honorary poresident of Dinamo Brest, who unveiled him to their fans in July © AFP/File / Sergei GAPONMaradona sent a welcome message to new Mexico President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador while hitting out at “imperialism” in a clear reference to the United States.He has changed little over the years but, if his coaching fortunes don’t experience a dramatic upsurge, this could be another brief footnote in a career that will always be remembered more for his on-field skills than any off-field antics.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Vettel spoils Hamilton’s home party with win

first_imgVettel’s win for Ferrari wrecked Hamilton’s hopes of taking a record fifth win in succession and a record sixth overall, but the Englishman – who was last after a collision with Kimi Raikkonen on the opening lap – produced a heroic drive to finish second for Mercedes.His team-mate Valtteri Bottas, on older tyres, led entering the closing laps, but was unable to resist Vettel or his Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen, who finished third. Bottas was fourth.It was Ferrari’s first win in Britain since 2011.Daniel Ricciardo came home fifth for Red Bull ahead of Nico Hulkenberg of Renault, Esteban Ocon of Force India, Fernando Alonso of McLaren and Kevin Magnussen of Haas. Pierre Gasly was 10th for Toro Rosso.“The safety car spiced it up,” said Vettel, wearing supporting tapes on his stiff neck. “I had the advantage of the tyres, but it was not easy to find a way through.”Raikkonen apologised for his first lap brush with Hamilton which earned the 38-year-old Finn  a 10-second penalty.“It was my mistake,” he said. “I deserved the penalty, but I kept fighting.”On another sweltering afternoon in central England, with a track temperature of 53 degrees Celsius (127 degrees Fahrenheit), the drama began immediately. As the lights went out, Vettel made a near-perfect start to pull clear into the lead followed by Bottas.Hamilton, from his record 76th pole, appeared bogged down as he responded and was instantly in a scrap for third with Raikkonen, who collided with the Briton under braking into Turn Three.Both spun and rejoined, Hamilton after running off track. He was 19th and last, Brendon Hartley having failed to start in his Toro Rosso.“I think my car’s broken,” said the defending champion as he reconciled himself to a charge through a field shaken by the opening lap incidents.He was soon up to 16th and by lap nine he was eighth, but some distance from Vettel, who led Bottas by six seconds on lap 12. Verstappen and Raikkonen were third and fourth with Ricciardo fifth.– Furious finale –Unexpectedly, Ricciardo made a second stop after 31 laps, lifting Hamilton to fifth as the Australian rejoined sixth, but on softs.A furious finale to match the frantic first lap looked certain when Ericsson then crashed at Turn One.The Swede was unhurt and climbed out to applause from the crowd as a Safety Car was deployed. Vettel pitted from the lead, but Bottas stayed out, to lead on lap 34, as did Hamilton.After their strategic fiasco, in Austria, this was a bold move by Mercedes who took first and third on track with used medium tyres, but without the benefit of fresh “soft” tyres.As at Spielberg, Hamilton was concerned by the decision.© AFPThe final stages of the British Grand Prix were a duel between the two Ferraris and the two Mercedes with Sebastian Vettel coming out on top.© AFP Andrej ISAKOVIC“There is no way I can compete with new tyres,” he said. “You are the fastest by miles, so don’t give up. It’s all there…”When the Safety Car came in, Bottas surged clear while Hamilton defended from Verstappen before Carlos Sainz and Romain Grosjean collided at Copse, triggering another Safety Car.On re-start, at Stowe, Bottas pulled away. Hamilton stayed close in third, hoping for a chance.As they headed into the final five laps, the top four cars were separated by only 1.6 seconds with the two Red Bulls in pursuit until, on lap 47, Verstappen spun at Club and Vettel squeezed past Bottas, at Brooklands, to seize the initiative.In a final flurry, Hamilton passed Bottas for second and Raikkonen beat his compatriot to the final podium place.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel enjoyed his Grand Prix victory on Sunday at Silverstone.© AFP Andrej ISAKOVICSILVERSTONE, United Kingdom, July 8 – Sebastian Vettel opened a clear lead in the drivers’ world championship on Sunday when he wrecked Lewis Hamilton’s home-race party and claimed an impressive victory in a thrilling British Grand Prix.The four-time champion seized the lead at the start and fought back after losing the initiative during two safety car periods to register his second win at Silverstone and the 51st of his career.last_img read more

Brendan Rodgers lauds Philippe Coutinho’s “phenomenal strike”

first_imgBrendan Rodgers hailed Philippe Coutinho’s “phenomenal strike” as Liverpool avenged last season’s humiliation at the hands of Stoke.The reds were humbled 6-1 on the final day of last season and it looked as though they were going to be disappointed again before the Brazilian unleashed a rocket to beat Jack Butland.And Rodgers praised his side’s defence to hold out Stoke and keep the team in a position to win the game so late on.“When you come away from home to Stoke, you know it’s always going to be a tough game, every game in the Premier League is a tough game so you have to ensure that you can weather any storm that there is,” said the Northern Irishman.“We didn’t have too many chances or opportunities against us but you’ve still got to defend because they have so many outstanding players. Then you grow into the game but it’s important to defend it well. We know we have the quality to win games. “It was a wonderful strike and we’ve seen so many of those from outside the box. His first part was outstanding.“He rolled the player really well, got away from him with his speed and then hit the shot which was a phenomenal strike and a great goal to win the game.”Rodgers was also keen to highlight the progress his side have made over the summer and the stark contrast in performance now compared to at the end of last season at the Britannia.“For us, on the back of where we were 11 weeks ago, it was important to put in a performance and a result,” he added.“I thought the players were absolutely outstanding, they showed great determination and then a moment of quality won the game.”last_img read more

Five restaurants to be built

first_img The Farmer Boy’s restaurant will be the first in the Antelope Valley. The restaurant offers choices ranging from made-to-order breakfasts to burgers to sandwiches and salads. WinCo is a chain of more than 50 grocery stores that are predominantly owned by employees through a stock trust. A spokesman said the company’s name is both a nickname for “Winning Company” and an acronym for the states where WinCo has stores – Washington, Idaho, Nevada, California and Oregon. The spokesman said site-preparation work has begun for the Lancaster store, but no date has been set for construction to start. Construction will take nine to 12 months, and the store will employ about 225 people. WinCo offers groceries, fresh meat and produce, fresh bakery products and bulk and specialty foods, city officials said. “We promised a viable retail center,” Councilman Ed Sileo said of Lancaster Town Center. “We promised big, national chain restaurants. Here we are.” The development of the Lancaster Town Center represents a rebirth for one of the city’s old retail areas. From the 1950s through the 1980s, the property was one of Lancaster’s biggest shopping centers. But after Sears relocated to the Antelope Valley Mall in Palmdale in 1991, the property started to become an eyesore. The Sears building and a former car dealership immediately south of it were demolished in 2000. Redeveloping the property was delayed by the recession of the 1990s and by legal haggling to clear up the 1950s-era deed restrictions that required any new stores be built on the same pads and in the same size as the original buildings. After legal wrangling, the city acquired a nearly one-acre parcel to lift the restrictions and sold the property to the developers. Isackson said that when Lowe’s decided to open one of its home-improvement stores there, it raised the property’s profile with other potential tenants. The 180,000-square-foot Lowe’s opened in early 2005. Jim Skeen, (661) 267-5743 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

LANCASTER – Five restaurants, including a Chili’s and a Panera Bread, as well as a 92,000-square-foot grocery store will be added to the Lancaster Town Center, officials announced Tuesday. The shopping center, located at 10th Street West and Avenue K, will add a Chili’s, a Panera Bread, a Rubio’s Fresh Mexican Grill, a Farmer Boy’s and a Jamba Juice. The center will also add a WinCo Foods grocery store, a CVS drugstore, a 3 Day Blinds shop, a Verizon Wireless shop and a Wells Fargo financial office. City officials said the restaurants will help meet citizens’ demand for national-brand dining-out options.

By mid-2007, the additions should be in place, said developer Rob Isackson. Of the center’s planned 280,000 square feet, all but about 10,000 feet have been leased. The center is expected to have more than 20 businesses and will make $150 million in annual sales, Isackson said. Panera Bread, featuring sandwiches, salads and bakery goods, will be among the first new businesses in the center. The restaurant, which will employ about 50 people, could be open as early as this fall, said Geoffrey Glazer, managing partner of Mariposa Bread LLC, a Panera Inc. franchisee. Chili’s will open in about a year. The restaurant, which will employ about 120 people, will be the third for the chain in the Antelope Valley. One restaurant opened in the Antelope Valley Mall in 1991, and a second is planned for Palmdale’s east side. last_img read more

Not only this, he grabbed a goal and an assist against Chelsea, so hopefully he can continue this form. Out: Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City) – £9.8m It’s not that the player himself is in poor form but when your defence leaves Danny Ings unmarked in the six-yard box you can be sure clean sheets are unlikely right now.

He will hopefully get a couple of goals to add to the one he scored against Arsenal last weekend. tense Out: Jamie Vardy (Leicester City) – £9.0m For whatever reason, Guardiola isn’t particulary hot on Sane this season, although we’re led to believe it’s due to the returning Benjamin Mendy’s threat on the flank. This means the expensive star has played just 17 minutes across two games. Dropping him would be wise until he’s certain to start. The Foxes forward made a poor challenge against Wolverhampton Wanderers and as a result was sent off.

If more managers drop him, though, he could be worth a punt. gameday cracker The Cherries winger is looking like a superb under the radar addition for your FPL squad. His role as a tucked in winger see him a big part of Bournemouth’s attacking play, along with David Brooks, and Fraser already has a goal and an assist for his troubles.

He’s out for at least two months so selling is still your best option, no point having him on your bench at that price. A lot of managers swapped Riyad Mahrez in for De Bruyne last week and had their fingers burnt by Pep Guardiola’s tinkering. A safer option after his start against Huddersfield Town appears to be D Silva, who grabbed himself a goal on his comeback.

Councillors ‘differ’ over private contests during Rally Weekend

first_imgCllr Gerry McMonagle has said the council must take responsibility for regulating diffing competitions during Rally Weekend.The contests which run in the Dry Arch area of Letterkenny each year have ‘terrorised’ people living in the locality, said Cllr McMonagle at yesterday’s meeting of the Letterkenny MD.He said: “We have a large number of people coming to the county, not to follow the Rally, but to participate in these diffing events. There are four private businesses operating now and the people of Dromore, Bonagee, Lurgybrack and Drumahoe say they are deeply affected. “Children and parents are not able to sleep at night with the noise and people are anxious about the speed of cars on the roads.“These events have no parking, no traffic management and no health and safety plans as far as we can see.”Cllr McMonagle said he was disappointed with the council’s response that there was no scope to address the issue under Planning & Development legislation.The council maintained that ‘notwithstanding the evident nuisance created by these activities’ the limited timespan of the events mean that they do not require planning permission. Cllr McMonagle said there is an onus on the council to call together the interested parties – the private diffing event organisers, the Donegal International Rally organisers, the Vintners, Gardai and residents – to make the Rally a safe and enjoyable event for all. Such a meeting was requested yesterday, he said.Cllr John O’Donnell raised a debate that not all private events should be “branded with the one brush”, such as separate events that are held the karting track.Cllr O’Donnell said: “I’m not going to sit back and say there are private operators with no management and safety measures. I’ve attended events that are controlled and very well managed. Isn’t it better that they are in a controlled environment than being out on the roads? We should write out to the people to give us their plans.”Cllr Ciaran Brogan said that the Donegal Motor Club condemns unregulated events. He said: “These groups try to jump on the back of the success of the Donegal Rally and organise fringe events. The message that needs to go to these people is that they are not a part of the Donegal Rally and they are not welcome.“I’m not sure what we as a council can do, but I would say that Cllr McMonagle has the support of the Donegal Motor Club,” said Cllr Brogan. Cllr McMonagle added that the Donegal Rally is being damaged by the bad publicity surrounding diffing competitions and that safety must be ensured for people who come to support the Rally.Councillors ‘differ’ over private contests during Rally Weekend was last modified: July 13th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Diffingdonegal international rallyletterkennyletterkenny municipal district meetinglast_img read more
