WI Women hoping to break semi-final jinx

first_imgMUMBAI, India (CMC):West Indies Women are determined to break their semi-final jinx when they clash with New Zealand Women in the second semi-final of the Twenty20 World Cup at Wankhede Stadium here today.The Caribbean side have never reached a T20 World Cup final, having fallen at the final four at each of the last three events, and captain Stafanie Taylor believes her side is poised to finally get over this mental hurdle.Taylor, meanwhile, has been the most consistent batsman with scores of 40, 40, 35 and 47 at the top of the order, while those around her have struggled.”Today in training, I actually said at the meeting that I think this is the fourth time that we will be in the semi-finals, and this time around it’s not actually against Australia, so I think maybe that’s a plus for us,” Taylor told a media conference here yesterday.”But we definitely want to cross this barrier. We’ve been here too many times not to know how to approach it, and today, at training, the vibes there was fantastic, and that’s what I want to see going into tomorrow’s game, so we just hope we can put our best foot forward and go out there hard.”UNDER-19 SUCCESSThis time around, the Windies Women have a special belief which has been further bolstered by the success of the Under-19 West Indies team at the ICC Youth World Cup in Bangladesh earlier this year.”We’ve been talking about since the time the Under-19s won the tournament. It’s more like an inspiration for us,” Taylor noted.”We know that we came close in the past and this is like more drive to actually go out there and do the job and to see that both men or in the semi-final, and playing at the same ground I think that’s fantastic. We definitely just want to go out there and do our best.”She added: “On Twitter and Facebook, it’s just blowing up to know that both of us are actually in the semi-finals. Everybody is just behind us a hundred per cent and giving us good feedback.”It’s about us going out there and actually doing it. I think it’s a mental thing tomorrow … they say 75 per cent of the game is played there (mind) and I think it’s on that day who is actually more composed. If we try to do that, we can pull this off.”last_img read more

PH pride: World Cup champion France’s goalkeeper is Filipino

first_imgDon’t miss out on the latest news and information. ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins Alphonse started playing football at the age of seven when he joined the soccer club of “Little Angels,” the Entente Sportive des Petits Anges of the 7th (ESPA 7), located at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.The 6’4” goalkeeper started out as a field player but when he substituted for their club’s goalkeeper, he realized that it was the position that he really liked.At 16 years old, he became the youngest goalkeeper to sign a professional contract with PSG.Alphonse has represented France in various world competitions and has won the World Cup for the country twice: the first was when France won FIFA U-20 (Under 20 years old) World Cup in 2013, and the 2018 FIFA World Cup championship that the team won on Sunday.Alphonse’s first professional match happened on May 18, 2013 when he played for RC Lens Club. Less than a year later, on May 11, 2014, he was voted Best League Goalkeeper.By 2016, Alphonse was playing for the elite Champions League. He joined the Villarreal club in Spain. This is a small family club located in Castellon, Valencia, but is rated as one of the best in La Liga.With Villareal, he became the holder of best club record of not letting a single goal pass through his cage for 620 consecutive minutes of playing time.After his stint in Villareal, Alphonse returned to PSG in 2016 and he still plays for the club at present.DiversityWhen Alphonse started playing in 2000, it had only been two years since France bagged its first World Cup championship in 1998.

Rafa Benitez says Newcastle derby hero can fire club to Premier League safety

first_img Aleksandar Mitrovic celebrates scoring Newcastle’s equaliser against Sunderland Rafael Benitez is backing Aleksandar Mitrovic to fire Newcastle out of relegation trouble after watching him drag them back from the brink of a derby disaster.The Serbia international’s 83rd-minute header secured a 1-1 draw with Sunderland at St James’ Park, although with both sides desperately needing victories to lever themselves out of the Barclays Premier League drop zone, celebrations were muted.It was just the £14.5million striker’s sixth goal for the club he joined last summer, but manager Benitez is confident he can score more if he is given the right kind of service and support.He said: “I said before that he has the potential. We have to help him a little bit with better crosses, better deliveries and support and get closer to him, but he will score goals if we can do that.“We are creating chances, we are attacking and we can be there, so we have to improve this part of the game and create more chances and Mitrovic or Papiss Cisse or the other strikers will score more goals and we will be fine.”Newcastle remain in 19th place in the table, one position and a single point behind their neighbours with eight games to play, but three points adrift of safety.It would have been even more had Mitrovic – who finished the game on the sidelines on medical advice after being knocked unconscious – not rescued them following Jermain Defoe’s 44th-minute opener.The Black Cats were comfortably the better side before the break, but once again failed to kill the game off and succumbed at the death, much to the frustration of manager Sam Allardyce.Allardyce said: “The consolation for me is that we have been in a position to win every game we have played recently, and particularly when we score the first goal, so we are doing most things right by taking control of the game, scoring the first goal, but just not managing to see that through into a victory.“That’s the last thing we have got to try to change, and we have got to change it right now. We are now in a position of must-win – draws are not going to be good enough for us now. For me, we have got to win four out of the last eight.” 1last_img read more

Elephant death draws protest

first_imgMore than 30 animal rights activists chanted anti-zoo slogans and waved tombstone-shaped placards Sunday outside the Los Angeles Zoo to protest the death of a 48-year-old Asian elephant. Hoping to discourage visitors from entering the park, some protesters also wore black to mourn Gita, who died Saturday in her enclosure. Necropsy results are pending, but the protesters claim Gita died because she could not roam free like her counterparts in the wild. “Gita was in her middle-age at 48, not in her old age as the zoo wants you to believe,” said Bill Dyer, regional director of the group In Defense of Animals. “Elephants can live into their 70s or more in a natural habitat. It is the unnatural conditions of zoos that shortens their lives.” City News Service contributed to this report.

Veterinarians tried to raise the animal onto her feet, but the Asian elephant died at 9:40 a.m. “She was beloved by many people, not just the staff but visitors, and it’s a tremendous loss,” said Jason Jacobs, a spokesman for the zoo. “Animals are born in the Los Angeles Zoo, and as a natural part of the cycle animals also die at the Los Angeles Zoo.” Two years ago, a female African elephant named Tara died of heart failure at 40. Protesters said the zoo has a history of elephants dying before their time. The zoo did not immediately respond to that claim. Some of the protesters carried placards shaped like tombstones, with the names of Los Angeles Zoo elephants that have died. They formed a line facing visitors, who were filing their way to the ticket booths. Actor Chris DeRose, one of the protesters, said one family turned back early in the demonstration. last_img read more

Pep Guardiola isn’t satisfied by his current options in between the posts and could turn to ex-Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes when the transfer window opens, The Sun report.A clause in the Spaniard’s contract means he can leave relegated Middlesbrough for free this summer and can therefore begin negotiations with other clubs.Boro may be making an instant return to the Championship, but Valdes has suggested he still has plenty to offer at the highest level.Would he be an upgrade to Claudio Bravo or Willy Caballero at the Etihad, then?See how some have reacted to the rumour on Valdes below.last_img read more

first_imgRESIDENTS of one Co Donegal town are fighting back against criminal gangs – by filming their movements.One Vauxhall-driving gang of burglars which tried to target the Fairgreen area of Letterkenny over the weekend was captured on film.A number of residents have contacted in recent days to report the movements of the criminals. Gardai were called on a number of occasions as the local criminal gangs cased cars and homes in the area.Residents watched as two suspects put on gloves and shone torches in and around homes in the area.But what the would-be thieves didn’t know was that local people were watching and have armed themselves – with video cameras.“We’ve just had enough and we have to fight back in some way. The guards were called and to be fair they came out all right but the boys just moved to another area and came back again and there aren’t enough guards anyway,” said one resident. “If any of us sees anything dodgy going on now we film it, try to get registration numbers and images.”Another resident said uploading video footage to the internet is one option being considered.One unfortunate resident of Long Lane however was set upon when he attempted to stop the theft of a car. He was treated at Letterkenny General Hospital for his injuries.One local man says residents must fight back by making it more difficult for the car thieves and burglars who are roaming parts of the Letterkenny at night.“People must learn to lock their cars, lock their houses up and at least try to make it more difficult,” he said.
