Jamaica stuns Mexico to reach CONCACAF Gold Cup final

first_imgOSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson LATEST STORIES “The New York Red Bulls probably have a better kicker than Kemar Lawrence,” Whitmore said with a smile. “Now, Jamaica’s team needs Kemar Lawrence in dead-ball situations. It’s a totally different thing. Probably when the New York Red Bulls see this tonight, they might (want him) to take free kicks.”Trying to win its second consecutive Gold Cup and fourth in five tournaments, Mexico used the deeper reaches of its player pool following the World Cup qualifiers and the Confederations Cup last month. While teams were allowed to make up to six substitutions for the knockout rounds, El Tri coach Juan Carlos Osorio said he was blocked by Mexico’s clubs.Mexico hadn’t trailed in the tournament before Lawrence’s late goal, but El Tri also hadn’t been impressive — no player scored more than one goal.“This is a process, and it takes a lot of work to get a team that can compete in a World Cup,” assistant coach Luis Pompilio Paez said. “This is not a sufficient result, but this is the middle of the process. I saw a team that gave everything. We always respect what the other team does. We just needed to get a goal, and we didn’t have the right circumstances. Embarrassment, sadness — as a team, we feel it.”Blake also starred 11 days ago when Mexico and Jamaica played to a 0-0 draw in Denver. With the Philadelphia Union keeper playing exceptionally well, Jamaica has allowed only two goals in the tournament.The semifinal crowd was dominated by Mexico’s vast Southern California fan base, yet the Rose Bowl was less than half-full with just 42,393 fans. The absence of Chicharito Hernandez and other top Mexican stars, combined with El Tri’s unattractive performances in the Gold Cup to date, apparently kept many of their usual faithful at home.FIFA President Gianni Infantino watched the semifinal from the Rose Bowl stands. So did Osorio, who served the fifth game of a six-match FIFA ban for his conduct toward officials during the Confederations Cup.Mexico beat Jamaica in the 2015 Gold Cup final, and El Tri also defeated the Reggae Boyz 2-0 at the Rose Bowl just 13 months ago during the Copa America. Jamaica finally got one back, beating Mexico for the first time in the teams’ eight Gold Cup meetings.Blake made two brilliant saves in succession in the 12th minute, diving twice to stop close-range chances by Jesus Duenas and Erick Torres, the Houston Dynamo star and the only player on the current roster from outside Mexico’s domestic leagues.Blake did it again in the 25th minute, stopping Torres’ point-blank header from the top of the 6-yard box with improbably quick reactions.

It’s always Mexico, U.S. We want to be in that group. We want to be a team, a country that someone can talk about, and that’s what we’re working toward.”Jamaica goalkeeper Andre Blake kept this game scoreless with a series of impressive saves while Mexico dominated possession with a lineup missing most of El Tri’s most-accomplished players.But after Lawrence repositioned the ball in a bit of shifty gamesmanship, his late strike froze Mexico goalkeeper Jesus Corona. The ball curled over the wall and slipped just below the bar for the New York Red Bulls defender’s third international goal and first in three years.The 24-year-old Lawrence doesn’t take free kicks for his MLS club, but Whitmore knew his quality from recent practices.ADVERTISEMENT McGregor blasts Cerrone in 40 seconds in UFC return End of his agony?

SUP Reinstates Martin Kollie

first_imgStudent Kollie is being reinstated University of Liberia (UL) campus-based Student Unification Party (SUP) has reinstated Martin Kollie as the party’s secretary-general, after serving a three-week suspension for what the party said was “disorderly conduct” for inciting some of the students to “illegally protest against the state.”In a communication reinstating Kollie, SUP chairman Butu Levi said the decision was reached after holding several consultations with members of the “politburo and central committee,” the party’s highest decision-making body, to decide Kollie’s fate in the party.“With the power vested in the Politburo and Central Committee, the party hereby reinstates Martin K. N. Kollie as secretary-general. Henceforth, we are pleased to inform members of the party and the Liberian people that Kollie now has every right to function as the legitimate secretary general of the party,” the communication said.“We therefore call on all militants and the general public to accord him the due courtesies and utmost respect that comes with this portfolio,” Levi said in the letter.He reaffirms the party’s commitment to remain supreme and to never back down in championing the collective agenda of the Liberian people.Recently, SUP suspended Kollie from his position due to “abrogating and acting against sacred constitutional norms, tradition, and dictates of the party, which it considered inimical to the doctrine precedent and constitution of the party.”In a brief remark, Kollie said his reinstatement vindicates him from allegations that he wanted to use his position for self-gain.“I knew from day one that I was going to get my position, because it was just a matter of time before that happens,” he said, shortly after he received his reinstatement letter.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

De Gea admits he almost quit Manchester United

first_img David de Gea in action for Manchester United David de Gea admits he considered leaving Manchester United a couple of years ago – but he is glad he opted to stay.De Gea walked away from Old Trafford on Sunday with a big smile on his face after playing a crucial role in United’s 2-1 win over Everton.The Spanish goalkeeper earned glowing reviews for the way he acrobatically denied Leon Osman and Bryan Oviedo, as well as Leighton Baines, who saw his previously impeccable penalty record vanish thanks to De Gea’s right-hand save.“It was probably one of my best performances for Manchester United. I was really happy about that,” De Gea said.“Games like that helps your confidence grow.”Rewind three years and De Gea could barely muster a smile.His dream £18million move from Atletico Madrid immediately turned into a nightmare when he was blamed for both goals in United’s narrow Community Shield win over Manchester City.Worse was to come in the course of his first six months at Old Trafford.Errors against Basle and Benfica quickened United’s early exit from the Champions League while domestically, De Gea cost United points against West Brom and Blackburn among others.De Gea was struggling to bulk up to help him cope with the demands of playing in the Barclays Premier League and, understandably for a 20-year-old, he was finding the move away from his family to a foreign country extremely difficult.At times, the pressure proved too intense for the young goalkeeper, who had played less than two years’ worth of first-team football before he moved to Manchester.“Sometimes,” De Gea said when asked whether he ever thought about leaving.“It’s difficult when you get a lot of criticism like I did. But I kept strong and I always tried to remain positive.“Those early days were difficult for me and my family. But when you play for a big club like Manchester United (being criticised) is normal when you don’t play well.”Although he does not remember the early days of his fledgling career fondly, De Gea is glad he went through the experience as he feels it toughened him up and made him the goalkeeper he is today.“What happened at the start helped me be the player and man I am now,” he said.“When you have bad moments you have to improve. You have to become stronger to deal with it and I believe I have become stronger. I am much better now.”Although he is not completely error-free – last season’s Capital One Cup clanger against Sunderland proved as much – De Gea has improved immeasurably since those opening six months.He has seen off the competition provided by Anders Lindegaard and at international level De Gea is threatening to displace Iker Casillas as Spain’s number one.De Gea credits Frans Hoek, the goalkeeper coach brought in by Louis van Gaal this summer, as one of the men responsible for his upturn in form.“Frans Hoek has helped me a lot,” said De Gea, whose distribution has improved just as much as his shot-stopping.“We are working on trying to start moves from the goalkeeper.“I think I’m playing the best football of my career. Now I’m ready for everything.” 1last_img read more

Coach says APU must be physical

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa AnitaAPU on Tuesday was missing starting forward Scott Zea and backup point guard Kasey Myers because of injuries. That did not help the Cougars in the shooting department, as they shot just 39 percent. But San Diego Christian shot only 38.1 percent. So having Zea and Myers would have been nice, but it would not have helped the Cougars become more physical. “I think it is a mental toughness as much as anything,” Odell said. “They need to understand that some games they (the officials) are going to let it go a little bit and they need to respond in a positive way, work through it and not get their heads down and not shy away from it. “In the last couple of games, we stopped doing things because we were afraid of being hit almost. We got soft instead of responding in our own tough manner.” San Diego Christian was no slouch. Although the Hawks were unranked Tuesday, they were ranked No. 15 when Wednesday’s newest poll was released. That is understandable. What is curious is how APU went from being ranked No. 3 to No. 2 after losing. APU (16-2, 7-1) and San Diego Christian (13-3, 7-1) are now tied for first place in the Golden State Athletic Conference. It was the first loss by APU to San Diego Christian in 16 years. The Cougars had defeated the Hawks 26 consecutive games. Odell said it was too early to say when Zea and Myers would return to action. Zea stretched ligaments in his left ankle, an injury sustained Jan. 7 at Concordia. Zea played the rest of that game, but has not played since. Myers suffered tendon damage to his left hand in a game last Saturday at Point Loma. Odell said the swelling has gone down but that Myers’ hand was twice its normal size a couple of days ago. The Cougars continue conference play tonight with a game at Fresno Pacific University (10-5, 3-4). Tip off is 7:30. The APU women, ranked No. 9 in the country, play at 5:30. The Cougars are 14-4 and 6-2. Fresno Pacific is 4-12 and 0-7. robert.morales@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2213 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Deadly attack results in capture

first_img Monday marks the end of the 40-day mourning period after the death of Imam Hussein in 680 A.D. He was the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad and was killed in Karbala in present-day Iraq, now the site of massive Shiite pilgrimages to mark the date. Authorities in one of the Shiite holy cities, Karbala, imposed a six-day driving ban starting today in a bid to protect pilgrims this year. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! BAGHDAD, Iraq – A U.S. air strike north of the capital Wednesday killed 11 people – most of them women and children, said police and relatives of the victims. The U.S. military said it captured the target of the raid, a man suspected of supporting al-Qaida fighters. But the military said only four people were killed – a man, two women and a child. “Troops were engaged by enemy fire as they approached the building,” said Tech. Sgt. Stacy Simon, a military spokeswoman. “Coalition forces returned fire utilizing both air and ground assets.” Police Capt. Laith Mohammed said the attack near Balad, 50 miles north of Baghdad, involved U.S. warplanes and armor that flattened a house in the village of Isahaqi. An Associated Press reporter at the scene said the roof of the house had collapsed, three cars were destroyed and two cows were killed.

AP photographs showed the bodies of two men, five children and four other covered figures arriving at the hospital accompanied by grief-stricken relatives. The victims were covered in dust with bits of rubble tangled in their hair. The U.S. military said they caught the target of the raid, man suspected of supporting foreign fighters of the al-Qaida in Iraq terror network. On the eve of the first session of Iraq’s new parliament and within days of the 3rd anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion, vehicles were banned from Baghdad’s streets to prevent car bombings. Politicians reported a stalemate over the next government. The U.S. military dispatched a battalion of soldiers from the 2nd Brigade, 1st Armored Division – about 700 troops – to Iraq from its base in Kuwait to provide extra security for Shiite holy cities as tens of thousands of pilgrims converged for a major religious commemoration that came under attack in the two previous years. last_img read more
