“It’s great to have Cristiano. He makes any team stronger.” Portugal could not match the four goals they ran in against Croatia, though, and Fernandes added: “We managed the game well, we knew how to take advantage of opportunities. “We could have scored more goals, but we are happy here because we took what was important and we are at the top of the group.” read also:Ronaldo Scores 100th International Goal for Portugal Portugal coach Fernando Santos has also marvelled at his side’s superstar, saying that the Juventus forward thrives on setting more records. He told a news conference: “What more can I say? A team that has the best in the world cannot be better without the best in the world. “[Ronaldo] goes on breaking records and records and then, when everyone thinks he is going to finish, there are even more records to beat. He feeds on it.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Bruno Fernandes lauded Portugal team-mate, Cristiano Ronaldo, after his 100th and 101st international goals secured a 2-0 Nations League win at Sweden. Ronaldo came into the match looking for a milestone strike at the international level and the superstar captain reached a century of Portugal goals just before half-time in Stockholm Tuesday. Gustav Svensson was sent off for a second bookable offence, allowing Ronaldo to fire in a stunning free-kick to celebrate his 100th Portugal goal. Portugal were in complete control but needed a second goal of similarly high quality from the five-time Ballon d’Or winner to make the points safe in the Group A3 encounter. The victory gave defending Nations League champions two wins to begin this season’s competition, having defeated Croatia 4-1 on Saturday without Ronaldo, who missed out with a toe infection. Manchester United midfielder Fernandes was full of praise for the 35-year-old after Tuesday’s game, saying that the veteran can still make the difference in any match. “We know that [with Ronaldo] it is easier to reach the goal,” Fernandes said. “He has a nose for goal and can solve a game at any time. “That was what happened before half-time, in a free-kick situation. Just yesterday he had six or seven like that in training and today he did the same.

Kola Daniel, Special Assistant (Media) to the Minister of Youths and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, disclosed this on Thursday in Abuja. Daniel said the development was a result of the resolve by the Minister to unearth hidden sports talents across the country. He said this was in order to grow and nurture them to take over from the older ones at the right time. He said: “The scholarship is a dividend of the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the ministry and the Nigerian Tulip International Colleges in October 2019. “The MoU is worth N2.6 million and will ensure some of the athletes discovered at the Games are able to further their education while still engaging in sports.” Daniel explained that the athletes were picked from the Anambra State contingent at the 2019 NYG. “Four out of the 20 athletes nominated for the scholarship programme from Anambra, in company of their coach, Akachukwu Igwebuike, a two-time gold medalist in javelin at the international level, were put through physical and practical trials, as well as oral screening,” Daniel said. He said it was from this group that Dike Mmaduabuchi (long jump/high jump) and Gabriel Chidera (shot put/discus) have now secured scholarship to the NTIC. Daniel added: “It is worthy of note that during the course of the screening programme, over 240 footballers were also nominated for the scholarship. “Three footballers of Anambra descent made the final list of which the captain of Team Anambra at the 5th NYG, Okafor Anthony, was among the lucky recipients.”Tags: Anambra StateFederal Ministry of Youths and Sports DevelopmentIlorinKwara State

Published on November 7, 2016 at 1:18 pm Contact Jon: email@example.com | @jmettus Coming off a 54-0 loss to then-No. 3 Clemson in Death Valley on Saturday, Syracuse head coach Dino Babers addressed the media at his weekly press conference Monday.The Orange (4-5, 2-3 Atlantic Coast) will next face North Carolina State (4-5, 1-4) in the Carrier Dome at 12:30 p.m.Here are three things he said.Babers’ is ‘not sure’ what Eric Dungey’s injury isStarting quarterback Eric Dungey was knocked out of the loss to Clemson near the end of the first quarter when linebacker Dorian O’Daniel drove his helmet into Dungey’s shoulder. O’Daniel’s helmet slid underneath Dungey’s chin, knocking his helmet halfway off. Dungey put his hands to his head while on the ground. He got up with the help of trainers but looked woozy as he was guided to the locker room with at least one hand on him from a staff member the entire way.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBabers said he’s “not sure what it is right now,” in reference Dungey’s injury and whether or not it is a concussion. “We still haven’t finished the tests.” Babers said he saw the quarterback in the plane ride home, but that Dungey missed the team’s meeting on Sunday because he was undergoing testing.Last year, the quarterback missed four games and parts of three others because of hits to the head.Babers said Dungey “really got jerked” on the hit, but it was only a shoulder pad it wasn’t helmet-to-helmet contact.The Orange also lost running back Moe Neal, safety Daivon Ellison and receiver Brisly Estime during the course of the game.“I have not gotten notices back on all of them yet,” Babers said in his opening statement. “Some of them are still going through medical things to clear or not clear them. Outside of that I have no idea what’s going with all this stuff so I’ve got to wait and see.”Babers also noted that injured wide receiver Jamal Custis, who hasn’t played this year, will redshirt.‘We’re going to see what happens during the week’ regarding Mahoney and WilsonBabers is taking a wait-and-see approach regarding Dungey’s replacement, if needed. Despite not being on the two-deep depth chart, Austin Wilson replaced Dungey in the Clemson game, and he threw 27 passes for 17 completions, 116 yards, two interceptions and no touchdowns. Zack Mahoney, who was listed as the backup and was the only other quarterback to play for SU this year, entered after Wilson in the fourth quarter, going 1-for-4 for 8 yards.The depth chart released Monday has both Wilson and Mahoney listed as the secondary options to Dungey. Babers said both of the QBs did “OK.” He also said he’s not sure what the split of reps will be like in practice, but that even if he didn’t he wouldn’t reveal it.“We have an idea of who does what better, but we have to see with the rest of the football team too if Eric can’t play of how we’re going to use those guys in that situation that’s going to be the most conducive for us,” Babers said.Babers shares middle school voting education storyElection Day is on Tuesday, with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump battling for the United States presidency. A noteworthy topic, among others, is an open seat on the Supreme Court following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February. The next president would appoint the new justice with the Senate voting on the choice.Babers said he doesn’t talk about politics to the football team and he doesn’t speak about politics as a “public servant” and representative of Syracuse University.“Now, all that being said,” Babers said, “I’m going to get in trouble.“I can still remember my middle grade teacher and she was trying to make sure that when we were growing up that we would all vote. All right. ‘Got to get out and vote. Got to get out and vote.’ She would ask — I was a in a certain type of neighborhood. They were like, ‘Does your mom and dad vote?’ Well some of us raise our hands. Well some of them do, some of them don’t.“And I’ll never forget her saying, she said, ‘It’s really important that you exercise your right to vote.’ And then she went a step forward … ‘If you’re not going to vote, just remember this. If you’re not going to vote every single year for the president, at least vote every single year that there is a seat open on the supreme court because that is the most important year ever to vote.’“That’s my answer to that.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+

(AP Photo/David Zalubowski)ExpandDENVER — By the end of four innings Sunday, the first two games in Colorado were beginning to seem like a fevered dream brought on by the altitude.The Dodgers held a 1-0 lead at that point after having scored just three times in a loss on Saturday. The humidor had finally kicked in.Then things returned to Coors Field’s brand of normalcy. Twelve runs were scored in the next two innings with the Dodgers getting the better of it. A six-run sixth inning lifted them to a 10-5 victory over the Colorado Rockies Sunday afternoon and prevented the Dodgers from losing consecutive series for the first time since April 8-14 (the Cardinals and Brewers).Instead, the Dodgers and Rockies split a four-game series that produced 65 runs and featured 15 home runs. By then, Maeda had tripped three triggers the Dodgers seem to use every time he starts. His pitch count was getting high (88) after giving up two singles to start the inning. He was about to face the Rockies lineup a third time with two left-handed batters, Charlie Blackmon and David Dahl, coming up.“I was ready to stay in. I was ready to fight through that second-and-third hole (after a wild pitch),” Maeda said through his interpreter. “The manager had a different idea.”It wasn’t a bad idea but it didn’t work out well.Saving Julio Urias for later, Roberts opted to go with Zac Rosscup, a lefty reliever who has been very tough on left-handed hitters at times throughout an itinerant career.He didn’t retire either of the lefties he faced. Blackmon beat out an infield single on a topped ground ball that barely made it past the pitcher’s mound, driving in one run. Dahl hit a three-run home run to give the Rockies a 4-3 lead.“Knowing we had Julio for three innings, I just thought the best chance to get Blackmon and Dahl who have had success against Kenta was to get Rosscup in there,” Roberts said. “It was a groundball that obviously Blackmon beat out and a Coors home run. It was a fly ball that I know the probability wasn’t high for it to get out of the ballpark.”An inning later, that bullpen choice didn’t matter so much.Seven consecutive Dodgers reached base on an assortment of hits (four singles and a double), walks (one) and a bases-loaded hit batter to drive in the tying run (Justin Turner). Pederson drove in two runs with his third single. Matt Beaty’s double drove in another. One run scored when the Rockies couldn’t turn a double play on Cody Bellinger and another on the sixth hit of the inning, a single by Max Muncy.With a lead more firmly in hand, Roberts turned to Urias for three scoreless innings in relief. He got Blackmon and Dahl in the seventh inning. Blackmon hit a ninth-inning homer off right-hander Yimi Garcia. Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start “For us to come out of here with a split and to lose no ground to those guys who gave it all they had is a good thing for us,” said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, protective of his team’s double-digit lead in the National League West. “Definitely glad to get out of here and enjoy an off day tomorrow.”Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda kept the Rockies’ offense silent for four innings, allowing just one hit – a triple by Tony Wolters – and two walks in that time.But the Dodgers gave Maeda only a slim lead with one run off Rockies starter Chi Chi Gonzalez in the first four innings – and Maeda did that as well. He singled with one out in the third, went to third on a single by Joc Pederson and scored when Gonzalez dropped the return throw on a potential 3-6-1 double play.They added two runs in the top of the fifth to make it 3-0 – and again Maeda was in the middle of it. His sacrifice bunt scored one run and he reached first safely when Gonzalez throw hit him in the backside. The second of Pederson’s three singles in the game drove in the second run.“I think Kenta threw the baseball really well today,” Roberts said. “He’s had a lot of success with the slider (in Colorado). A lot of times, spin doesn’t really play here or isn’t as consistent. But even today, there’s something about this place that doesn’t scare him at all, which is great. How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “Today in particular, I thought his fastball command was very good. You could see by some of the swings those guys were taking off him they were surprised by the fastball — both sides of the plate, top of the zone.”That didn’t stop Roberts from pulling Maeda three batters into the fifth inning.Related Articles
UConn is expected to ditch the American Athletic Conference (AAC) and return to the Big East, a move geared toward benefiting the school’s men’s and women’s basketball programs. But what would such a move mean for UConn’s football program?This presents other tough questions, including the one nobody wants to ask. Should UConn ditch football altogether and go all-in as a basketball school? After all, that would fit the Big East model. None of the 11 current Big East schools have FBS football. They know what max value is, and more importantly, what sports have that power. Football isn’t one of them.Not in the Big East, anyway. UConn will either have to fight as an independent or drop to the FCS. Those are the best options right now.Otherwise, that uncomfortable question will come up every year. Before asking these questions, one must look at UConn’s max value as a football program and the options available when it leaves the AAC, which has been the strongest Group of 5 conference in the College Football Playoff era.MORE: Ranking all college football coaches for the 2019 seasonUConn joined Division I in 2000 and worked its way up to the Big East, which was an automatic qualifier school in the Bowl Championship Series era. The Huskies’ best season was in 2010 under Randy Edsall. UConn went 8-5 in a year in which they split the conference championship and made the Fiesta Bowl without beating a ranked team. Oklahoma routed UConn in that game, 48-20.That was the program’s max value season. The Huskies are 28-69 since 2011, even with Edsall returning in 2017 after failed stints by Paul Pasqualoni and Bob Diaco.The only FBS programs with lower winning percentages in that stretch are UTEP (27-70), New Mexico State (25-73), Georgia State (19-57), Charlotte (12-36), UMass (18-67) and Kansas (15-81).Georgia State and Charlotte started football this decade. The other four programs offer a window into UConn’s football options at the FBS level.Would UConn fit in Conference-USA?No. At this point, UConn would be an East Coast version of UTEP.There are no natural rivalries on which the Huskies could, and it’s essentially a G5 demotion for the program that would excite nobody.How about the Mid-American Conference?Nope. UMass tried that, and it doesn’t work. A bunch of MAC East Ohio schools will not want to make the trip to Storrs, Conn., during the height of the weekday #MACtion in November. Nobody from the East Coast is going to want to make that Tuesday trip to Kent State or Bowling Green, either.If the Huskies can’t offer basketball to those conferences, then they won’t offer much good. The Group of 5 might have some realignment, but none of it will be appetizing.What about the other options?Could UConn go independent?Yes, but it puts the program in limbo. That’s what New Mexico State and UMass are doing now. It makes for a tough, repetitive schedule, and it’s a challenge to get into bowl games with the conference tie-ins. It’s hard to maintain interest as an independent.Notre Dame has an ACC arrangement. BYU plays a ridiculous schedule. Army could take UConn’s spot in the AAC and run with it. It’s just not a great option.Should UConn make a Power 5 push?No. The move out of the AAC suggests that’s not the intention. Kansas’ struggles with football are eternal, but the Jayhawks can still offer the Big 12 coach Les Miles. The Huskies will never be able to do that. This would be expensive, and no Power 5 conference is in a rush to add UConn even if there is another merry-go-round of expansion.That leads to the most uncomfortable questions.Should UConn eliminate football?It at least has to be a conversation, even if it’s a short one. That always evokes an emotional response because it means jobs are eliminated and scholarships are student-athletes are involved.Despite the struggles this decade, football still generates revenue from television contracts. No school wants to lose that TV money. UConn’s average attendance was 20,924 and averages what a Group of 5 school typically averages over a five-year span. When you eliminate the sport, you can feel the same backlash that UAB did.This isn’t a UAB-like situation though. At UConn, football will never be the front porch. The women’s basketball team has 11 national championships. The men’s basketball team has four national championships. They have won 12 of those national titles since the Huskies were routed in that Fiesta Bowl.Any other options?Move down to the FCS. If the Huskies aren’t going to eliminate football, then the move to the Big East should at least correspond with a move down to the FCS level in football. Downsizing would not be the wrong play in this case, and that has been suggested in the past by SB Nation’s Matt Brown.That would match the Big East profile, too. Georgetown and Villanova still play football in the FCS. The Hoyas are in the Patriot League. The Wildcats have made four playoff appearances in the Colonial Athletic Association this decade. They will never overshadow their basketball programs, but at least the schools know that.If UConn didn’t figure that out the last six years in the AAC — where it won more than three games only one time — then it won’t learn that lesson at any other spot in the FBS.
Nadir Hajro from Sarajevo, the only bodybuilder in B&H with cerebral palsy, was finally approved a visa for the USA.Namely, Nadir was initially denied the visa on the grounds that he might stay in the USA.

JOCKEY QUOTESMIKE SMITH, OMAHA BEACH, WINNER: “He broke extremely well, almost too well, he slipped a little leaving there but man he settled right in behind them really nice. He was loaded coming off that turn, Mr. Mandella really had him ready today. His last work was brilliant and he ran the way he worked.”“He’s a throwback to those classic horses. He can do anything. Three quarters to a mile and a quarter. He’s extremely fast and he’s got tremendous stamina. When you need him to be quick, he is. He can do it all. The only thing that surprised me today was that I had to stay inside. His last work was his best one, no question. Today, he hit his best stride late.”TRAINER QUOTESRICHARD MANDELLA, OMAHA BEACH, WINNER: “He just does that for us all the time, he is a fabulous horse, I think little by little he will have the respect he deserves.“I’m just very relieved to have him back. At the eighth pole, I thought we were (going to be) clear, but it took some race riding…This horse has a heart of gold and he’s got the greatest personality of any horse I’ve ever had. I would say anything’s possible.“You never know until you run them back, he got a little fresh and hot going into the gate so that is always on the back of your mind.
