Cyprus face daunting task against Belgium in crunch Euro qualifier

Posted in dnxjvxyy on May 26th, 2020

first_imgBy Andreas VouAfter Thursday’s narrow Euro 2016 qualifying defeat against Wales, Cyprus will be looking to keep within touch of third place in Group B but face a daunting task against a much-fancied Belgium side on Sunday night at the GSP Stadium in Nicosia.Cyprus will be looking for a vast improvement on the last time they faced the Red Devils, as Belgium ran riot in a 5-0 win back in late March.Marc Wilmots’ side are now regarded as one of the best in Europe and Cyprus will need to up their game if they are to hold on to hopes of claiming the third and final playoff spot.If Thursday’s performance against Wales was anything to go by, Cyprus have reason to be a little more optimistic as the home team put in a spirited performance despite a number of key players being unavailable.Only a late Gareth Bale header with just eight minutes remaining separated the teams as Group B leaders Wales maintained their three-point lead at the top of the table. Belgium, meanwhile, defeated Bosnia and Herzegovina 3-1 as they continue to pursue top spot.The likes of Stathis Aloneftis, Giorgos Efrem and Dimitris Christofi remain injured but Cyprus welcome back one of those who missed out a few days ago as Vincent Laban returns from suspension, which could give manager Pambos Christodoulou a selection headache after solid performances from Marios Nikolaou and Giorgos Economides against Wales.With three games left and three points behind Israel who currently occupy the final qualification spot, Cyprus will need to aim for at least a point against Belgium as well as rely on their near neighbours’ opponents to give them a helping hand. The home fans will be keeping a close eye on events in Cardiff as Cyprus will be hoping for a favour from Wales when they take on Israel in order to keep within touching distance of third place.Cyprus need no reminder of Belgium’s quality after the 5-0 defeat last time out. The Red Devils boast a star-studded squad, with the majority playing for Premier League clubs, including Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois, Manchester City’s new £54 million signing Kevin de Bruyne and Everton’s Romelu Lukaku, making them one of the toughest sides to contend with in the competition.Christodoulou however remains confident of getting enough points to secure qualification: “We still hold hope of getting three points from these two games. Now we face an even tougher team. We have to give it our all and see what we can do,” said the national team coach, before adding: “The players will give it their all and I hope we can get a bit of luck we need to get a result”.Just under 15,000 fans attended Thursday’s match against Wales and the Cypriot Football Association is expecting an even bigger attendance for Sunday’s game based on current sales. The match gets underway at 9.45pm.last_img read more

Parker taunts fire up Joshua

Posted in dnxjvxyy on May 14th, 2020

first_imgPhoto by: GETTY IMAGES. Caption: Anthony Joshua likes respect but admits there’s a gutter element that still has its place in boxing. WBO champion Parker is desperate to fight WBA and IBF champion Joshua and the big Brit believes a March or April bout in the UK is “realistic”.It seems Parker’s unorthodox methods of prompting Joshua into taking the fight are hitting a nerve.Team Parker have released videos to question Joshua’s “glass chin” and repeatedly accused him of greed as the Kiwis haggle for a 35 per cent cut of the net profit from what would be a mega-fight.Joshua has tried to steer clear of the trash talk though he admits there is a place for the “gutter” element of boxing.”Life is about how you interpret things and when I first started boxing, my interpretation [of boxing] was all about Mike Tyson and the gutter side of it,” Joshua said.”Then I started realising the discipline and regimen of the likes of Klitschko and how they conduct themselves. So I tried to change the angle.”But you need that gutterness as well, which I show in the fight, but outside of that, it’s calmness and respect.”It’s tough sometimes though if someone keeps on poking you, how do you keep a lid on that pot of fire?”There has been no lack of “poking” from Parker to keep the fight in the headlines.The Kiwi has been successful in giving a hoped-for fight with Joshua international attention and also increasing his own profile in the UK.And it appears there has been enough progress in talks between the two camps to suggest the fight will happen. Details could even be revealed later this week with a desire by Parker to get things squared away before Christmas to allow planning.Joshua has also been negotiating with American Deontay Wilder, the WBC champion, about a unification fight. But Wilder’s steadfast attitude about getting 50 per cent of the profits mean Parker is the priority for Joshua at the moment.”We have to get our hands on another championship belt. Joseph Parker is being very realistic in terms of when he’s going to fight and negotiations,” Joshua said when he attended the BBC’s sports personality of the year award in Liverpool on Monday (NZT).”That’s a fight that potentially could happen sometime in March or April.”Joshua and his promoter Eddie Hearn released a short video of a chat in a car on their way back from the awards where they repeated that view with Hearn saying Parker had priority over Wilder.”Why do you say Parker first?” Joshua asks.Hearn replies: “Because he is the one who is remotely realistic … remotely realistic.”Joshua then chips in with: “I don’t like to give false promises, but I agree … Parker is remotely realistic in negotiaitons.”It is understood Hearn has been willing to give Parker 30 per cent.It’s now a matter of seeing if they can find some middle ground for a fight tipped to be held at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium which holds 76,000 and has a retractable roof, making it an ideal large venue for that time of year.last_img read more

Dog found dragged to death near Rose Prairie

Posted in dnxjvxyy on January 11th, 2020

first_imgThe man, who asked to remain anonymous, says it looks like the dog was dragged behind a moving vehicle by a rope attached to its back leg. Fort St. John RCMP Corporal Jodi Shelkie says cases of animal cruelty are normally investigated by the SPCA, and if it’s determined the abuse was intentional, charges could be laid. “If it can be proven that the person did it to purposely injure the dog, then under the Criminal Code of Canada there is a section: Cruelty to Animals,” she says. :45 “But if it’s a case where somebody tied their dog to the back of their pick up and it accidentally flipped out, there’s no intent, in which case we wouldn’t be able to do anything.” However, getting an investigation started is heavily dependent on whether there is any way of identifying who the dog’s owner is.- Advertisement – “If it’s got identification on it like a tattoo, a chip in it, or a dog tag, the SPCA can look it up,” Shelkie explains. The SPCA has its own investigators for cases of animal cruelty, and the man who found the dog has been told someone will be out there today to check it out.Advertisementlast_img read more

The Big One

Posted in dnxjvxyy on January 6th, 2020

first_imgWHILE recent rumblings out of Chatsworth have Southern California residents speculating about when the “Big One” might strike, Peruvians got the haunting answer to that question Thursday morning. That’s when an 8.0-magnitude earthquake unleashed massive devastation, killing at least 500 people. Massive parts of the country now have no power, no clean water and little hope. This is the constant danger that comes with living in seismologically sensitive areas. We know that it’s not a matter of if, but when, we will experience such destruction, and a quake even more severe than the Northridge Earthquake of 1994. When that time comes, we will depend greatly on the kindness and charity of others. Food and money will pour in from around the country and the world to ease our plight. For now, thankfully, it’s our turn to be on the giving end of the help line. Peru needs our support, and we need to provide it. To contribute to Peruvian quake relief, call Operation USA at (800) 678-7255, or go to www.opusa.org. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Man City will get ‘punished’ at West Brom if defensive frailties continue, insists defender

Posted in dnxjvxyy on January 3rd, 2020

first_imgManchester City centre-back Eliaquim Mangala has urged the team to resolve their defensive problems before next week’s season opener against West Brom, as the Baggies will ‘punish’ them if they don’t.City’s back line has looked vulnerable during pre-season with Manuel Pellegrini’s men losing 4-1 to Real Madrid last month and conceding another four in the first half in Saturday’s defeat at Stuttgart.Defensive frailties were a recurring issue last season and Mangala acknowledges improvement is needed before City begin their 2015-16 Barclays Premier League campaign at The Hawthorns next Monday.The Frenchman told the club’s website, www.mcfc.co.uk: “I think what happened against Madrid and Stuttgart rang one or two alarm bells and maybe showed we have to change something and be aware, because we can’t play the way we did in those two games against West Brom or we’ll get punished.“That’s why they were valuable games for us, but the fact is that it is better to find out in pre-season friendlies than in the Premier League because the results are not as important.“It also gives us an idea of the areas we need to work on and improve. Everything is focused on our first game against West Brom and by Monday, we’ll be ready and focused.”Mangala had a mixed season after his £42million move from Porto last summer but ended the season well by helping keep four clean sheets in a run of six successive wins.The 24-year-old said: “I am focused on the season ahead and I want to play my part to the full. I know I need to improve and show my best game every time I play and that’s what I intend to do.” 1 Eliaquim Mangala last_img read more

Man United launch security probe after fans sleep overnight at Old Trafford

Posted in dnxjvxyy on December 28th, 2019

first_img Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium Manchester United are investigating how two supporters managed to stay overnight at Old Trafford before Saturday’s match with Arsenal.The pair, reported to be foreign students, were part of an official stadium tour on the eve of the match, but managed to cut away from the group and stay at the ground.The fans were found during a routine security sweep at Old Trafford, being caught by one of the pre-match check measures.Police decided not to arrest the duo and United are investigating how the supporters managed to evade detection.A club spokesman said: “We realise people will go to any lengths to watch a game at Old Trafford but these people went too far.“The fact that they and their belongings had been searched before entry means we are confident there was no risk to safety.”United were the subject of a high-profile security breach in May, when the season finale with Bournemouth was postponed due to a bomb scare.The stadium was evacuated after the discovery of what proved to be a fake bomb, left behind following a security training exercise, sparked a safety alert. 1last_img read more
