Ronaldo rescues a point for Juventus at Roma

first_imgTopics : Edin Dzeko was back on the Roma front line after his move to Juventus fell through, the Bosnian having missed last week’s trip to Verona which ended in a forfeit defeat for the capital side for fielding an unregistered player.Instead new Juventus signing Alvaro Morata got his first start after his move from Atletico Madrid earlier this week.But the champions were pushed hard by the hosts with Veretout opening from the spot in the 31st minute after a Rabiot handball.The French midfielder added a second shortly before the break just after Ronaldo had equalized for the first time. Another handball, this time Lorenzo Pellegrini’s, resulted in Juventus being awarded a penalty allowing Ronaldo to slot in.The Portuguese got his second with 20 minutes to when his head met a Danilo cross seven minutes after Rabiot was sent off for a second yellow card. Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice to salvage a point for 10-man Juventus in a 2-2 draw at Roma as Napoli hammered Genoa 6-0 in Serie A on Sunday.Champions Juventus were trailing 2-1 and a man down after an hour at the Stadio Olimpico after a Jordan Veretout brace for the hosts and Adrien Rabiot’s sending off.But a towering Ronaldo header grabbed the equalizer in the 69th minute to avoid handing new Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo a first defeat. ‘A bit misleading’ Hirving Lozano scored twice as Napoli swept past coronavirus-hit Genoa while AC Milan continued their winning run without Zlatan Ibrahimovic with a 2-0 victory against promoted Crotone.”The result is a bit misleading, if we hadn’t scored the second goal quickly in the second half, I would probably have changed the set-up,” said coach Gennaro Gattuso.”In the first half, we suffered a bit, even with a lot of opportunities, we almost conceded a goal. We lacked a little balance, we still have to improve.”Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen got his first start for Napoli, having come off the bench to lift the southerners past Parma in their opener last week.Club-record signing Osimhen again impressed against a Genoa side playing without first-choice goalkeeper Mattia Perin, who tested positive for coronavirus, as did midfielder Lasse Schone.Mexican forward Lozano fired Napoli ahead in the 10th minute in the Stadio San Paolo and Gattuso’s side remained just a goal up at half time.After the break it was one-way traffic with Piotr Zielinski latching onto a clever Osimhen back-heel flick for the second just seconds after the restart.Zielinski then helped set up Dries Mertens for the third just before the hour mark before Lozano again struck following a mix-up in the Genoa defense.Substitute Matteo Politano curled in the sixth with 20 minutes to go to give Napoli a maximum six points after their first two matches.”Last year Osimhen was the player we needed,” said Gattuso. “He didn’t score today, but he did score.”When he attacks we find space. The players look for him, we’re very happy with how he is helping us.” The only bad news for Gattuso was Lorenzo Insigne limping off with a left thigh injury ahead of their clash at champions Juventus next week.Milan meanwhile, without star Ibrahimovic who tested positive for COVID-19, also have injury woes after Croatian striker Ante Rebic fell badly on his left arm.Franck Kessie scored their first goal from the penalty spot just before the break after a foul on Rebic, with Spaniard Brahim Diaz, on loan from Real Madrid, adding a second four minutes later. “The good news is there is no fracture, this decreases the recovery time,” said coach Stefano Pioli of Rebic.”We have injuries, now we grit our teeth. This is a very important week for both the league and the Europa League.”last_img read more

first_imgSubic Bay Freeport terminals, a part of International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI), has achieved productivity levels at par with that of the Manila International Container Terminal (MICT), the Philippine-based port operator said.Namely, Subic Bay’s two Panamax quay cranes at the New Container Terminal (NCT) 1  handled close to 400 TEUs with each crane averaging 40 and 33 moves per hour, respectively.The productivity levels were achieved during the inaugural call of the 1,440-TEU capacity Cape Fulmar, which marked the launch of the new South Korea-Taiwan-Philippines (KTP) service, ICTSI added.Launched by Taiwanese carrier Evergreen Marine Corp, the KTP service is expected to boost regional trade between the three trading economies, plying the ports of Incheon and Kwang Yang, South Korea; Kaohsiung, Taiwan; Batangas, Manila, and Subic Bay, Philippines; and back to Kaohsiung.“It was a great effort and a big win for ICTSI’s Subic operations. This goes to show that Subic is at par with the productivity levels in MICT.

Yoga Club opens in Dominica

first_img Sharing is caring! Share Tweet Dr. Lucia John, PhD, founder of Patanjili Yoga ClubA yoga club, founded by Dr. Lucia John, under the patronage of High Commissioner of India to CARICOM, Shri Gauri Shankar Gupta, the Patanjili Yoga Club has officially opened here.The club was launched on Sunday June 26, 2016, a few days after the celebration of International Yoga Day on June 21 and will operate from the Perfect Health Institute and Wellness Centre at McIntyre Lane, Goodwill.During the launching at the club, Dr. John said yoga has become a worldwide phenomenon however people do not understand the extent of yoga. “Yoga means union, yoga means health, yoga means good attitude, yoga means being inward but we have taken it to be just physical exercises and it’s good that at last the world is going to be putting attention on what yoga really is.”Yoga is what the world needs she added. “That is what we are going to try to do in Dominica, we’re going to try to have yoga in schools, we’re going to try to have yoga with the youth groups, we’re going to try to have yoga in the business places and I’m sure we will see a difference in Dominica.”Therefore what the Patanjili Yoga Club offers is the “totality of yoga”. Club members will be introduced to not only the physical exercises, but also mental and attitude practices. “When we look at the schools, we see what is happening, lots of children have ADHD that is attention deficit hyperactive disorder…applying yoga to these children will help them to get better again; to get them to focus on school and use their school days to learn and to get to the next level,” she said. Thus, the club will also seek to aid in developing writing skills. “When we say yoga we mean mental potential so what we are doing and we are going to be doing it more and more is working with the young people.”This will also help with unemployment on the island she said as writing is the “easiest employment around”. “It may be their own story, it may be someone else’s story, it may be just fiction and help them to publish…help them make some money.” Dr. John also revealed that it is the intention of the Indian High Commissioner to CARICOM to sponsor a group of Dominican teachers to learn yoga in India. They will return as instructors of yoga being able to incorporate it in their schools. “I think this is going to be the best thing that he can offer us because when you have yoga teachers in the schools, it’s different from having people outside the school coming in to teach yoga or to teach any exercise.”Art will also be taught. Shrinivas Kale, member of the steering committee, said in India yoga forms part of their daily life from morning to evening. Persons engage in different parts of yoga throughout the day both knowingly and unknowingly he said. “Yoga has their own benefit and the main aim of yoga is to unite; when we say unite the question is with what, unity is with anyone and everyone and that’s what the meaning of yoga is.”He said yoga also means spiritual uplifting and that occurs when one is physically strong, therefore it is crucial for the body to be strong, effective and preferably disease free. “That’s why yoga has become very popular in the west because it helps to cure a lot of diseases because the aim of yoga is to reduce the disease so that we can increase the focusing…this yoga will help achieve a lot of other things in students, in children, in nation, in country.”This Kale said will help make Dominica a better country as it will lead to harmony in society. “India has their own technology in space, their technology in medicine, their technology in missile industry, technology in ammunition…and how India achieve that is because of the intelligence and that intelligence we can achieve through yoga because we start focusing better and that’s what we want to achieve in Dominica.”Members of the steering committee are Dr. Lucia John, Mr. Shrinivas Kale, Mrs. Rujuta Kale, Mr. Vijay Punjabi, Mrs. Zilia George and Miss.

Cordes, Zwanziger win thrillers at Independence

first_imgBy Ryan ClarkINDEPENDENCE, Iowa (Aug. 2) – Troy Cordes and Alex Zwanziger both stood in victory lane Saturday night at Independence Motor Speedway – and they got there in different, yet equally thrilling ways.Cordes, who earned his third win of the year in the Performance Bodies IMCA Modified feature, chased down leader Adam Johnson for a late pass on his way to victory. Zwanziger took advantage of a late restart and topped a three-car battle to earn his first win of the season in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods.Brennen Chipp held the early lead in the 20-lapper for the Modifieds while Johnson challenged to his outside. Johnson took the lead following the race’s only caution on lap three and quickly extended his advantage. Meanwhile, Cordes was working from a sixth row start and sat in the top five shortly after the restart. He chased Chipp and Kaleb Bentley until making his way into the runner-up spot at the midway point.By the time Cordes motored into second with 10 laps to go, Johnson built a straightaway lead as both front-runners worked the top groove of the speedway.Cordes pulled to within a couple car-lengths of Johnson when the leader encountered lapped traffic in the waning laps. Cordes dropped to the middle groove as the lead pair negotiated the slower traffic and drew even with Johnson as the white flag waved. Cordes slipped past Johnson in the final set of turns to escape with the victory. Johnson and J. D. Auringer completed the top three. Brian Hilbert enjoyed a sizable lead in the early stages of the 15-lap Northern SportMod feature while Danny Dvorak worked through traffic from a fourth row starting spot.Dvorak made his way around Hilbert following a lap eight restart while Zwanziger and Jenae Gustin gave chase. Caution slowed action one final time to set up a green, white, checkered finish with Dvorak at the point and Gustin and Zwanziger side-by-side behind him. When racing resumed, Gustin worked low and Zwanziger worked high as they both challenged Dvorak for the lead. Zwanziger was able to pull even with the leader as the white flag waved and then surged ahead off the final corner to steal the victory. Dvorak ran second at the line ahead of Gustin. Jerry King earned the second win of his IMCA Late Model career and his first in Independence in that 25-lapper.After Drew Johnson and Brian Hunter shared time at the front of the pack, King raced the high side past Hunter following a lap 15 restart. He drove away from the field to take the victory. Darren Ackerman came from the fifth row to finish second ahead of Hunter.Brian and Benji Irvine are no strangers to victory lane in Independence, however the cousins shared time in victory lane on the same night for the first time in their careers Saturday. Brian came from the fourth row to dominate the 18-lap IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature, earning his fifth win in as many appearances this season.Likewise, Benji earned his sixth win of the season in dominant fashion after starting in the fourth row of the 15-lap IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature.last_img read more

Umtiti suffers injury in training

Spanish media report that he will be unavailable for two or three weeks, so will likely be back in time for a potential June 20 restart for football in Spain as the country attempts to loosen coronavirus restrictions.The 26-year-old Umtiti joined Barca from Lyon in 2016 after he helped France to the final of Euro 2016.He had further success with France in their successful 2018 World Cup campaign.He played 16 times for the Catalan giants this season before play was suspended in March, and was twice injured earlier in the campaign, causing him to miss 10 matches between September and November last year.Barca returned to training at the club’s facility on Friday after almost two months on lockdown in defence against a virus that has killed over 26,0000 in Spain. Footballers in Spain restarted training following the announcement last week of a government plan that aims to end quarantine for professional players.Individual training sessions are the first step to what La Liga hopes will be a return to action in June that will complete the 2019-20 season behind closed doors.Tags: CoronavirusFC BarcelonaJoan GamperSamuel Umtitilast_img read more

Friedel: Be wary of dropping Hart

first_img Friedel helped Tottenham reach the League Cup quarter-finals with a penalty shoot-out victory over Hull, and he told talkSPORT: “All goalkeepers go through ups and down. “Goalkeeping is very much a confidence position. Joe has never struck me as a person who lacks in the confidence department. “The manager has a decision to make and he’s the only one who knows how Joe’s performing day in, day out in training. If he feels he’s performing well, he’ll stick with him. If he feels he needs a rest, he’ll put the other fellow in. “Being dropped can have a positive effect, but that depends how you take being dropped. If you sulk and stop doing your work, it’s going to have an adverse effect. If you knuckle down and work even harder and take your chance when you get in again, it can have a positive effect. “You just never know with these things. That’s why it’s not as easy as, ‘Right, we’re going to drop Joe Hart’, because you don’t want to lose the best Joe Hart, because the best Joe Hart is England’s number one.” Speaking after the cup win over Newcastle, Pellegrini said: “I will start to think about the game against Norwich on Thursday. “One goalkeeper can play but the other will have our full support. We will think about it. “(Pantilimon) is a good player and is not playing too much because Joe Hart played this year and last year, but I trust him and for him and for the whole team to keep a clean sheet after six games is very important.” Press Association Hart has been under intense pressure this season because of a number of high-profile mistakes, the latest of which came in City’s Premier League loss to Chelsea at the weekend. Romanian Costel Pantilimon, a cup regular, was given the nod for Wednesday night’s Capital One Cup tie against Newcastle and kept a clean sheet, and Pellegrini refused to confirm whether Hart would return for the Premier League clash with Norwich on Saturday. center_img Brad Friedel thinks Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini will be wary of dropping Joe Hart because of the negative effect it could have on the England goalkeeper.last_img read more
