Calero: “It is illogical to throw Europe in the trash”

first_imgThe player is clear that, whether played or not, each player has to “support”. At the same time, the Castilian recognizes that the Wolverhampton “It’s a great team. If we look at all the classifieds, they would all be difficult, including us. We have our weapons and we must show that we can be at their level or more.”And on Sunday, before his ValladolidOn salvation, the main focus of this Espanyol who has not managed to get off the descent despite the improvement with Abelardo Fernández, Calero believes that, little by little, the team will take off because the inertia is good. “The others score, but we are doing things right. We can save ourselves, we have options to win any game. And we are closer than ever to get out of these positions,” he said.For the central, who returns to the club in which he formed and played last season, in all games there is “pressure.” He also rules out that he would like to go to the winter market. “At no time did I think about it. I want to succeed here. It’s the club that trusted me. The rumors weren’t true. I want to prove that I can play here,” he concluded. The starter season began, but his low performance and the team relegated him to the bench especially with the arrival of Abelardo Fernández. Sitting on the bench was one of his first decisions. Fernando Calero, however, can regain ownership this Thursday against Wolverhampton. Europe looks forward to you: “It is a gift, we all want to play. It is a beautiful thing we fight for. It is illogical to throw it away and we want to go as far as possible and compete. “The central declared that “it is a beautiful match” and that the team wants to follow “the trajectory in Europe, which is very good”. To do this, Espanyol needs to leave England alive. “It is a team that is very strong in its field, but we have to go for it all. It is a double match eliminator. It will be important to score a goal. I think everything will be decided in the lap. A good result would help,” he said.last_img read more

Jaguars on top after Paul’s 6-wicket haul

first_img2018-2019 Regional 4-Day Tournament…Keemo Paul continued from where he left off on day two, picking up his third five-wicket haul at the First-class level. Paul ended with brilliant figures of 6-57 in 17 overs, to bowl out Windwards Islands Volcanoes for 209 in the first innings, in reply to Jaguars 454-9. Leon Johnson enforced the follow-on and Volcanoes ended day three on 167-3, after Devon Smith fell for 65.The penultimate day’s play at Providence, East Bank Demerara, between the Volcanoes and Jaguars began with a Keemo Paul over, who was searching for his fifth victim. Volcanoes batsmen in Dennis Smith and Alick Athanaze went out to bat aiming to avoid the follow-on by, which they required to score 305 runs. Dennis Smith, the nephew of Devon Smith, opened the scoring account for the Volcanoes on day three, with a leg bye and then he clipped a ball off his pads for four. Volcanoes crossed the 100 run mark in the first over, with young Athanaze batting with maturity.The Dominican, Athanaze who turned 20 December last, continued to bat with great composure, playing another gutsy knock for his team. In the first round, Athanaze scored a half-century against the same Jaguars team and he was unbothered by some testing Jaguars bowling. In the morning session, Smith and Athanaze brought up their 50-run partnership, with Athanaze reaching his second First-class half century. Soon after the drinks break, Shepherd found the outside edge of Smith, who was brilliantly caught by Johnson at first-slip with the score on 171-6 after 50 overs.It was worth the wait as it took 17.3 overs for the Jaguars to take the first wicket of the day; breaking the 90-run sixth wicket partnership. Smith was out for a composed 37 that included six fours that came from 93 balls. Seven runs later, a Keemo Paul brilliance saw the seventh wicket fall; Larry Edwards played a false shot that went into Paul’s hands, off his own bowling. The Essequiban, Paul reached a well-deserved landmark, his third 5-wicket haul at the First-class level, as he proved his worth as an international swing bowler.Volcanoes were in all sorts of trouble, with 200 runs looking miles away, they slipped and slid to 186-8. The promising Athanaze innings came to an end when a Shepherd ball bounced more than usual and he was out caught behind by the brilliant wicket-keeper, Bramble. An elegant left handed Athanaze spent 162 minutes at the crease and faced 114 balls scoring an attractive 66 that included 11 fours and one six.Keemo Paul continued to pick up wickets, bowling Sherman Lewis for 4 with the score on 186-9, in 59.4 overs. Paul continued to cause problems for the Volcanoes, as a bit of controversy took place in 61st over, when Josh Thomas edged one behind and was surprisingly given not out. After the buzzing around the stands about the premature decision by umpire Nigel Dugid, the 200-run came up for the Volcanoes with Ray Jordan hitting Shepherd out of the attack, with boundaries.However, the final Volcanoes first innings wicket came with the introduction of Permaul at the media centre end, when he trapped Josh Thomas in front. The Volcanoes were bowled out for 209 in 64.1 overs and were still behind by 245 runs, Jordan was left stranded scoring 18, with lunch being taken. Bowling for the Jaguars, Paul had his second six wicket haul at this level, ending with 6-57 from 17 overs, including three maidens and conceding nine fours. Romario Shepherd ended with 2-47 from 11 overs while Permaul continued his consistent run, grabbing 2-38 in 18.1 overs.Jaguar’s captain, Leon Johnson enforced the follow-on with Volcanoes trailing by 245 runs. At 12:30h after the lunch interval, Windward Volcanoes openers went out to bat for the second time in the match. Devon Smith and Taryk Gabriel went out to bat aiming to redeem themselves after adding only a 38-run partnership in the first innings.Three slips and a gully, Paul charges in from the southern end with his daunting out swingers. Jaguar’s bowlers remained patient and front-line pace trio in Paul, Shepherd and Pestano bowled very consistent line and lengths. It was the introduction of Sherfane Rutherford when the break-through came in the 12th over in the second innings.Devon Smith walks back after being dismissed (Brandon Corlette photo)Rutherford, who bowls brisk medium fast was on the money, when Gabriel played away from his body and edged one into Bramble’s gloves. The right-handed Gabriel scored 16 off 34 balls, including two fours with the score on 34-1. The experienced campaigner in Devon Smith was playing himself in, looking to score big. A full ball outside off stump bowled by Motie, saw the left-handed Smith drives one past cover for four as Volcanoes reached 50 within 21 overs. Cato and Smith safely saw Volcanoes to tea with the score on 62-1 after 25 overs. Smith was unbeaten on 32 while Cato was on 11 with the partnership on 27 at that point.Resuming after the tea interval, the final session was underway, the second ball bowled by Permaul was played into the leg-side for four. Cato continued his boundary hitting, when he repeated in the Motie over, as the partnership continued to grow. Smith was timing the ball beautifully while Cato continued to bat positive. The 76-run partnership came to an end when Cato edged a Keemo Paul delivery and was caught behind. Bramble was standing up at the stumps when he take a great reflex catch; Cato fell for 36 from 65 balls inclusive of five boundaries. Kirk Edwards partnered Smith with the score on 110-2 and the left-handed Smith brought up his 59th half-century in First-class cricket.Shepherd charged in from the media end and captured the prize wicket of Devon Smith with the score on 138-3 in 44 overs. Smith was out caught behind by Bramble in what looked to be a controversial dismissal. The veteran batsman who scored 65 from 128 balls hitting eight fours, claimed that his bat hit the ground and carried to Bramble.Kirk Edwards, who failed with the bat in the first innings, was partnered by Kaveem Hodge after Smith fell at 15:47h. Edwards looked good playing some good shots as himself and Hodge saw Volcanoes to stumps at 167-3 in 58 overs. The Volcanoes captain, Edwards is unbeaten on 40 while Hodge is on three.The final day’s play will commence form 09:30h with Volcanoes behind by 78 runs, with a possible Jaguars victory on the cards once more.last_img read more

Egypt’s Salah captures attention of Israel defence minister

first_imgThe Egyptian scored two goals and grabbed two assists Tuesday, but did not celebrate after scoring as a mark of respect for his former club.He has 43 goals in all competitions this season and was voted the best player in the Premier League by his fellow players.Despite the tongue-in-cheek demand from Lieberman, there appears no chance that Salah will turn out for an Israeli team.Although Egypt is one of only two Arab countries to have made peace with Israel, public opinion remains largely hostile to the country and supportive of the Palestinians.In 2013 Salah, then at FC Basel, was accused of changing his boots to avoid shaking hands with the players of the Israeli team Maccabi Tel Aviv before a preliminary round of Champions League.Before the start of the second leg, his choice of a “fist bump” rather than handshake hand also attracted attention.He was roundly booed and whistled by Maccabi fans during the game but still scored.Salah then explained that there was a lot of pressure on him before this match, but that he was not interested in politics at all.“The club told me if I don’t go I will be suspended and there will be lots of problems. So I went and thank god I scored,” he said in a 2014 interview. 0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Liverpool’s Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Salah matched a Prenuer League record for a single season with 31 goals and also netted the award for African Player of the Year for 2017JERUSALEM, Israel, Apr 25 – Egyptian superstar Mohamed Salah’s devastating performance for Liverpool in the Champions League has brought him an unexpected fan — the Israeli defence minister.“I will be calling the chief of staff immediately to tell him to hire Mohamed Salah to the Israeli army,” Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman wrote on Twitter after Salah inspired Liverpool to a 5-2 victory over Roma in the first leg of the Champions League semi final.last_img read more

Teens turn lens on politics

first_imgMONTEBELLO – From the raucous scene that can be city politics to the bright lights of the California Democratic Convention, two Montebello High School students are learning that covering politics is not for the faint of heart. State Assembly candidate Gerri Guzman hired video production students Cyrus Reymundo, 17, and Chris Morales, 16, to make a documentary on the recent Democratic Convention in Sacramento. Once there, the teens found themselves at the center of a paparazzi-like swarm of major media outlets competing for access to the candidates. “I couldn’t believe how pushy they were,” said Reymundo. “When Westly was coming in, all the media rushed at him. They were pushing and shoving us aside. But we pushed back and rushed to the front and were able to interview him.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsDespite feeling like they had been thrown into the lions’ den, Morales and Reymundo said the exposure revealed the inner workings of politics and of covering live media events. “It really opened his eyes to what’s out there for him to do and how things work,” said Diana Reymundo, Cyrus’ mother. “They couldn’t believe it when they were given press passes and could go anywhere. It really got them excited.” It was not Morales’ and Reymundo’s first foray into politics. The two students earlier this year created a bit of a stir at City Hall when they innocently showed up one night to videotape a Montebello City Council as part of a class project. Their presence at that meeting in March sparked an intense debate between several council members, some of whom said they had no idea the students were showing up to videotape the meeting. Mayor Bob Bagwell said friend and local sound and video engineer Philip Wilcox had offered to film the meetings free of charge in order to test the acoustics and filming logistics of the council chambers. The city is currently reviewing bids from companies to begin filming council meetings for television on a regular basis. “I’m doing what I can to open doors for the kids,” Wilcox said. “The whole council episode intimidated the kids. But they wanted to continue filming. It’s good experience for them.” While in Sacramento, Morales said, they asked the candidates questions about the recent student walkouts and boycotts over immigration reform, hoping to use the footage for another documentary he is making about the protests. Cyrus Reymundo said some questions they asked took the candidates by surprise. “We asked \ where they would be on May1st, the day of the boycotts,” he said. “Some said they would go to work or go to school. But it was good because they weren’t expecting that question. Westly was supportive of the boycott and said he wouldn’t buy anything, but that we should stay in school.” Reymundo and Morales have partnered on numerous projects since the beginning of the school year. They entered and won a gold medal in the Skills USA regional competition in the category of video production in November. The win enabled them to enter the state competition in April, where they finished in the top 10, said Morales. Both students said they plan on pursuing careers in video production, filming and editing. pam.wight@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
