Japan, Senegal draw keeps last-16 hope alive

first_imgAs it stands, Japan and Senegal have four points after two games, with Colombia and Poland on zero, though they have played a game less.Midfielder Honda was the hero for Japan, scoring the deserved leveller after goalkeeper Khadim N’Diaye flapped at a cross.Senegal, who reached the quarter-finals in the country’s previous World Cup appearance in 2002, needed just over 10 minutes to go in front.Japan failed to deal with a right-wing cross with Genki Haraguchi nodding the ball straight to Senegal defender Youssouf Sabaly in the box.He fired at Eiji Kawashima and the goalkeeper made a mess of it, punching the ball into the lurking Liverpool star Sadio Mane.The ball bounced off the striker and into the net for his first goal at this tournament — cue raucous Senegal celebrations with Khadim N’Diaye racing the length of the pitch to join in.This match was billed as the pace and power of Senegal against the tactical and technical nous of Japan, who took a gamble and replaced Vahid Halilhodzic with Akira Nishino as coach just weeks before the World Cup.It appeared to pay off when the unfancied Asians stunned 10-man Colombia 2-1 in their opener, and on 34 minutes they were level with Senegal when Takashi Inui bent the ball wonderfully into the bottom corner.Backed by a vocal Japanese following who never stopped singing and with the locals also on their side, Japan were now the better side after a nervous start.Mane found himself at left-back at one point as the Blue Samurai threatened to slice their way through, in what was growing to be an absorbing contest in the warm Yekaterinburg evening.Aliou Cisse, Senegal’s likeable coach and their skipper in that World Cup run in 2002, sent his substitutes to warm up five minutes into the second period as Japan began the half the better.Working down the Africans’ left side, the 26-year-old talisman Mane was only a sporadic danger.Japan should have taken the lead on the hour but Yuya Osako, the match-winner against Colombia, somehow missed the ball when unmarked inside Senegal’s six-yard box.Inui then struck the bar from distance after the Senegal defence went AWOL.On 71 minutes, Japan allowed a scuffed cross to go right across their goal and defender Moussa Wague arrived all alone at the far post to grab what looked like being an unlikely winner.But Honda, the former AC Milan midfielder who had only been on the pitch six minutes, hit the late equaliser to leave Group H up for grabs.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Senegal’s Mbaye Niang makes a shot as Japan’s Shoji Gen attempts to block during their World Cup Group H clash in Yakaterinburg on June 24, 2018.  PHOTO/FIFAYEKATERINBURG, Russia, Jun 24- Keisuke Honda’s late goal earned Japan a deserved 2-2 draw against Senegal in Yekaterinburg on Sunday to keep alive both teams’ hopes of last-16 qualification from Group H.All eyes will now be on the other group match later in the evening between Poland and Colombia following this stalemate at the Yekaterinburg Arena.last_img read more

Fantasy Premier League tips: 10 players to avoid

first_img On his day, the Frenchman is a match winner but right now, with his future uncertain and his professionalism under question we’d avoid him for now. We’ve all loved seeing the Nigerian blossom into marauding right wing-back but Maurizio Sarri is here to spoil the party. The Italian is set to return to a back-four and this means he’s likely to opt for a more natural defender, especially with compatriot Davide Zappacosta already at the club. You should avoid picking these players in your Fantasy Premier League team for the time being. Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT 12 12 12 Matteo Guendouzi (Arsenal) – £4.5million He looks a bargain but bare in mind he only got 112 points last season and the Cherries have only added left-back Diego Rico to their backline this summer. We think Eddie Howe and his side, unless they make big changes, could be in trouble. 12 But when it comes to the crunch it’s important you avoid the correct players – and talkSPORT are here to help.Check out our tips below. Heung-Min Son (Tottenham) – £8.5million 12 Ayoze Perez (Newcastle United) – £6.5million 12 Most Popular Premier League News 12 Sky Sports presenter apologises for remarks made during Neville’s racism discussion It’s almost time to submit your Fantasy Premier League squads.Picking the right players is tough and it’s often very attracting selecting exciting new signings or impressive pre-season stars. Andriy Yarmolenko (West Ham) – £7.0million smart causal BIG PRESENTS UP TOP Leighton Baines (Everton) – £5.5million How Everton could look in January under Ancelotti with new signings Guardiola-inspired tactics: Is this how Arsenal will line up under Arteta? A decent signing as the Hammers strengthen under Manuel Pellegrini but you have to question his consistency. Will he provide a steady stream of points? It will be hard to say until we see him action so best to put him on the watchlist and keep an eye. predicted He might be available for Spurs’ opening match against Newcastle United but then he’s off to represent South Korea at the Asian Games. After the international break you may wish to pick him up but until then he’s a waste of £8.5m. 12 Petr Cech (Arsenal) – £5.0millioncenter_img Yes, he’s a Premier League legend. He’s still a more than capable No.1 too but he’s not guaranteed that spot at the Emirates anymore. Bernd Leno has come in and seems set to take it away. Keep an eye if the situation changes, though.

That’s right, you heard us. Rafael Benitez’s side have one of the hardest starts to the season in the Premier League so we’d advise against signing Perez, despite a lot of managers selecting him. gameday cracker 12 Beware the starlets impressing in pre-season This actually does have the potential to be an incredible bargain but we’d suggest, for the moment at least, he won’t be starting games and will be a waste of your three possible Arsenal players. Keep him in mind for the future though if he begins to get more minutes. 12 Asmir Begovic (Bournemouth) – £4.5million ALTERED It’s not that we don’t consider this an excellent acquisition on the pitch, it’s just in FPL terms he’s unlikely to provide you big points and his major upside as penalty taker will be taken away by Mohamed Salah. revealed Sometimes it’s hard to let go but eventually you have to accept the inevitable. Baines has been a major part of most FPL managers’ past but now they must look to the future. With Lucas Digne arriving the left-back, once a whizz on set-pieces, will get a lot less game time. Victor Moses (Chelsea) – £6.0million Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade latest Fabinho (Liverpool) – £6.0million 12 Okay, you want a bargain for your midfield, we get it.

Tennis notes: Rough stretch continues: Calabasas’ streak snapped by Peninsula

first_img Robertshaw isn’t underestimating his regular-season competition, especially the West Valley League opponents, but when you’re the coach of the three-time defending City champions, you can never be too prepared. “(In the playoffs) I expect to win all four in singles, three for sure,” said Robertshaw, who is looking toward a third consecutive meeting in the finals with Palisades of Pacific Palisades. “Ultimately, my goal is to come up with three No. 2 doubles teams, so we might lose at No. 1, but we’ll be really competitive at No. 2 and win at No. 3. I like the challenge of trying to put the right combinations together.” Robertshaw also has had to shuffle the Highlanders’ lineup to get his usual No. 1 singles player, Roxanne Plata, and No. 3 singles player, Julia D’yachenko, enough doubles sets during league play to qualify for the City doubles tournament. Plata and Alex Margolin won the past two City doubles titles, defeating D’yachenko and Maria Cardenas in last year’s final. Margolin, Cardenas and four-year starter Ramya Sreepathi graduated, creating an opportunity for Plata and D’yachenko to join forces. “You have two returning first-team All-City selections, so why not put them together?” Robertshaw said. “Plus, I think (No. 2 player Jennifer To) can be first-team All-City in singles.” The changing lineups have resulted in closer scores for Granada Hills (8-1), especially in league play, as evidenced by the Highlanders’ 4-3 victory Wednesday over El Camino Real of Woodland Hills. The narrow margins of victory don’t concern Robertshaw. “We’ve been playing with our ‘B’ and ‘C’ lineups, which has been a lot more stressful than in years past, because I don’t have the luxury of taking one of my No. 1 doubles players and putting them at No. 1 singles (to balance the lineup). But as long as we get the victory, that’s all that matters.” Winning the mental game: After a tough 2004 season, in which it lost to Glendale for the first time in more than a decade, Crescenta Valley of La Crescenta has been more competitive in the Pacific League. The Falcons lost 14-4 Wednesday to Arcadia (14-0), unable to atone for a 12-6 loss in the first round of league competition. “Nobody’s out-physicaled us so far,” said Crescenta Valley coach Tom Gossard, whose team reached the Southern Section Div. II semifinals in 2003. “We’re a talented team. We’ve just got to put it together mentally. “Against Arcadia (the first time), we lost four sets by (a total of) five games, including three tiebreakers.” Gossard was feeling better about C.V.’s chances of succeeding in the postseason after defeating Glendale 13-5 on Oct. 6. “It was the first match of the season that we played from the first point to the last,” Gossard said. “I’m very proud of them. They never let up, because they knew Glendale would never let up.” On the comeback trail: Rumors of Malibu’s demise have been greatly exaggerated. The Sharks, the two-time defending Southern Section Div. V champion, lost Kelly Stewart and Lisa Marie Kohrs to graduation, and Dayla Perelman decided not to rejoin the team for her junior season. Malibu lost eight consecutive matches to open this season. Thanks to the dedication of junior Chelsea Mosser, a healthy Casey Zweig back in the lineup and improved doubles play from Alex Hogestyn, Brittany Saul, Nina Farag and Alison Sarmiento, the Sharks have rebounded with three victories in a row, two in Frontier League play. “It was a rough start, but the girls didn’t get discouraged,” assistant coach Chris Reutinger said. “All I’m concerned with is making the playoffs and not what our record is. If we have everybody healthy and our entire lineup to play with, we’ll be OK.” Malibu recorded consecutive 18-0 wins over Channel Islands of Oxnard and Santa Paula, then beat Oaks Christian of Westlake Village 13-5 Tuesday. Beneficial break: Katarina Reveche and Michelle Sulahian took some time off recently from playing for Campbell Hall of North Hollywood to compete in a USTA tournament in Palm Springs. The trip was a success. Reveche won the girls’ 18-under title at the Wilson Junior Championships, and Sulahian, with partner Pamela Montez (Indio), won the girls’ 16-under doubles title. Sulahian also reached the semifinals in singles in the 16s, and Reveche, playing with Troy of Fullerton’s Alison Ramos, lost in the finals of the 18 doubles.

McVitty then suffered a black eye Monday after accidentally tripping over a loose cord at home. She traveled to Peninsula on the team bus Wednesday thinking she had lost her purse, only to discover later it was in her car at school. “After last week, I didn’t think it could get any worse, but it doesn’t seem to be getting any better,” McVitty said. “Hopefully, this is the end of it, and things will start getting better next week.” Eyes on the prize: Simon Robertshaw doesn’t ignore the present. The Granada Hills coach just chooses to focus the majority of his attention on the future. From the time practices began in mid-August, Robertshaw already was thinking of possible lineup combinations for the City Section playoffs, which begin early next month. The outcome of the match did nothing to improve McVitty’s situation. After suffering a rare regular-season loss to the Panthers’ Tania Mahtani, McVitty rebounded to win her next two sets without dropping a game. That was of little consolation to the Virginia-bound standout, who watched helplessly from the sidelines as Peninsula – the second-ranked team in Southern Section Div. I – was putting the finishing touches on a 14-4 victory, snapping top-ranked Calabasas’ 31-match winning streak. center_img During the waning moments of Wednesday’s nonleague girls’ tennis match at Peninsula High of Rolling Hills Estates, Calabasas senior Kristen McVitty couldn’t keep her frustrations bottled up any longer. “It’s been like the worst two weeks of my life,” she said. last_img read more

SA’s stock exchange on a high

first_img4 January 20072006 was another record-beating year for South Africa’s JSE, with foreigners buying a record net R73.7-billion worth of local shares, the All Share index rocketing 38% – in the process reaching numerous new all-time highs – and the AltX exchange for smaller companies reaching critical mass just three years after its birth.Bloomberg reported this week that overseas investment in South African stocks hit a record high for the second year running in 2006, with foreigners investing a net R73.7-billion in the JSE – up by 47% from 2005 – buying R480.8-billion of shares and selling R407.1-billion.According to Bloomberg, the JSE’s benchmark All Share Index notched up its fourth consecutive annual advance in 2006, gaining 38% – topping the average 29% increase in 25 developing country exchanges tracked by the Morgan Stanley Capital International Emerging Markets Index.And according to the Financial Mail – which named the JSE its Newsmaker of 2006 – investors in SA’s stock exchange were richly rewarded with an average 30% return on their investments during the year.The Financial Mail described the JSE’s current bull run as “one of the longest and most robust in recent history,” noting that the bourse had risen by 219%, or 38% a year compounded, since its low point in April 2003.Delistings ‘won’t spoil the party’The Financial Mail predicted that a recent wave of delistings from the JSE through private equity buyouts would “not spoil the party – they will surely one day return to the market in better shape”.JSE CEO Russel Loubser told the Financial Mail that – up to 30 November – new listings had exceeded delistings for the first time in five years in 2006, while Noah Greenhill, marketing and business development general manager at the JSE, told Business Times in December that new listings had added about R80-billion to the JSE’s market capitalisation in 2006.This would leave the JSE well ahead of the game even if all the private equity deals currently on the table were to go ahead and companies like Edcon, Shoprite, Alexander Forbes and Consol – together worth R55-billion, according to some estimates – were to leave the exchange.AltX achieves critical massAt the same time, AltX, the JSE’s alternative exchange for small to medium and growing companies, is gathering momentum after a slow start three years ago.Greenhill told Business Day recently that the combined market capitalisation of the companies that listed on AltX in 2006 was R5.4-billion – up from R1.9-billion in 2005 – giving the exchange a total capitalisation of R7.4-billion.2006 was also the year in which the JSE Limited, which runs the 119-year-old bourse, listed on its own main board – and went on to become the year’s best newcomer, more than doubling its share price to R52.50 on 29 December from a closing price on listing of R24.25.The exchange started 2007 where it left off last year, reaching yet another record high on the first trading day of the new year as the All Share index closed above 25 000 points for the first time – a far cry from the 24 000 level it was at just a month ago.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, March 11, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Our forecast for this week is not as wet, and the biggest headline: significantly warmer (at least for a couple of days)!We have a pretty nice day today, and it will not feel quite as chilly, due to northwest winds not being as strong as yesterday. High pressure settles in, parking directly over north central to  NW Ohio tomorrow morning and then moves off to the east.  South winds up the backside of the high will allow for additional moderation in temps tomorrow. We will be dry both days, although clouds will start to build late tomorrow.Wednesday kicks off a period that features scattered precipitation over several days. There is a massive and powerful storm complex coming out of the plains and lifting northeast at midweek. The track is well away from us here, and as such, we only have to worry about rain. In addition, the storm is so powerful, that it likely draws in a big batch of dry air in its circulation, and that starves out some of the moisture that was originally headed towards us. So, here is our update. On Wednesday we have scattered showers over about 60% of the state, bringing a few hundredths to .4” of rain. Scattered showers are back for Thursday and can trigger a few hundredths to .25” over about 30% of the state. Then for overnight Thursday night through Friday can’t rule out showers over about half of the state. Right now, we think these will be relatively minor again, but there is the potential for thunderstorms in southern Indiana. For that reason, we will allow for a few hundredths to half an inch but will refrain from ramping up our totals too much just yet. The map above right shows potential rain totals through Friday evening. The main takeaway here is that we are looking for light on and off moisture through the second half of the week with decent combined coverage but nothing too dramatic on any given day. The biggest headline for the second half of the week will be temps…as we could see the warmest air in months coming across the region. 50s and 60s are possible Wednesday, and 70s Thursday thanks to strong south winds circulating around that strong, powerful storm. The map below right shows potential high temps on Thursday. Those temps fall off back closer to normal to close the week and for the weekend.For the weekend, we likely keep more clouds than sun in the forecast, at least on Saturday where we can’t rule out a few spits and sprinkles. Sunday has a better chance of some sun. Dry weather settles in for next Monday and Tuesday. We finish the 10 day window next Wednesday with some clouds in the north and east and perhaps a few hit and miss showers. But a large part of the state stays dry, and we have better sunshine potential the farther south and west across the state you go.last_img read more

Poll: 31% of People Think They Can Predict Twitter’s Future

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting The poll was from Harris Interactive in partnership with LinkedIn and surveyed more than 2000 people. Harris doesn’t know enough about RSS feeds to have an opinion about them on their own poll and press release pages, so it wasn’t until five days after publication that the LA Times tech blog discovered this latest gem.Look at these survey options, though. Would you be so presumptuous to say you think the service will grow exponentially? That it will remain limited to youth and media users? I use Twitter all day long, think about it even more than that and write about it for a living and I would check that last box saying I don’t know enough about it to have an opinion about its future.Short-form, multi-platform, hyper-public, data-minable, @ and DM-rich streaming conversation in both real time and asynchronously? That’s a new paradigm and anyone who thinks they can predict its future may be a bigger fool than the 69% of people who admitted they couldn’t.Obviously a substantial number of the 69% of respondents who don’t know enough to have an opinion said so because they simply don’t get Twitter at all. After all the media attention the service gets, does that mean that those people are stupid or that Twitter is stupid? To the degree to which either of those things are true, they don’t tell the whole story at all. The element of mystery (as opposed to cynicism) is the most exciting part of this situation. marshall kirkpatrick 69% of respondents to a new poll performed last month say they don’t know enough about Twitter to have an opinion about its future. That might sound pretty dismal after all the media attention the social network has received, but who amongst us could blame a person for not feeling qualified to comment on the future of an emerging communication paradigm? Twitter is complicated! It seems just as remarkable that 31% of people think they do know enough about Twitter to have an opinion about its future.Check out these survey options below and tell us which of those answers you’d have given if asked.
