Azkals rise again

first_imgLATEST STORIES The crowd exploded again as captain Phil Younghusband converted the 90th minute penalty to make it 2-1 and quite fittingly, for his 50th international goal.What followed were scenes straight out of a movie. Grown men hugging each other, tears of joy streaming down their faces, while the gallery applauded in approval.For veterans like Phil and James Younghusband and Neil Etheridge and assistant coach Chris Greatwich, who were all part of the team that pulled off the “Miracle in Hanoi,” qualification to the continental showpiece culminated a long journey from the depths of Southeast Asian football.“It’s been up and down,” said Phil Younghusband. “There’s progression. From 2010, we’ve made progress. Maybe the lack of success and wins in the tournament made people not talk about Philippine football but I think the team needs to be successful. That happens all over the world. To bring people in.”“It’s been up and down, it’s been amazing and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.”ADVERTISEMENT Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil MOST READ View comments In Liverpool, Man United sees the pain and path to recovery Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K.

Philippine football opened opportunities for me. This is why I give back. I love my country.”“I’m overwhelmed,” said Etheridge. “It’s been tough for the team. We’ve all made mistakes, both on and off the field—management, ourselves as players. We’ve learned from it, we got stronger.”Phil Younghusband hopes the Azkals biggest milestone to date triggers another wave of corporate support for the sport.“Hopefully this is the catalyst for more support in Philippine football,” he said. “In 2010 we got a lot of support from the private industry, hopefully this moment could be another resurgence of Philippine football.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Neymar leaves Brazil training session limping

first_imgChristopher Tolkien, son of Lord of the Rings author, dies aged 95 “Neymar left the training session with some pain in his right ankle because of the number of fouls he suffered in the game against Switzerland,” federation spokesman Vinicius Rodrigues said. “Since today was only a recovery session for the starters, and he complained about pain, he ended going to rehabilitation.”Rodrigues said Neymar would continue his recovery process but was set to practice normally on Wednesday, two days before the team’s match against Costa Rica in St. Petersburg. Brazil and Switzerland are two points behind group leader Serbia, which defeated Costa Rica 1-0 in its opener.Neymar had already practiced separately from his teammates on Monday.Rodrigues said the pain Neymar felt Tuesday was not in the same place where he injured his foot earlier this year. Neymar was sidelined for about three months because of the injury and was not fully fit when he arrived in Russia for the World Cup.Heavily marked and far from his best, Neymar was fouled 10 times in the match against Switzerland in Rostov-on-Don. He was limping when he talked to reporters after the match, when doctors dismissed anything serious.ADVERTISEMENT Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding MOST READ Cloudy skies over Luzon due to amihan The federation said Neymar has been in pain since the team’s 1-1 draw against Switzerland on Friday, when he was consistently fouled.Neymar started practicing with the rest of the squad but left accompanied by a doctor about 30 minutes into the session in Sochi.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownHe had been playing keep-away with a few other players when he started showing signs of discomfort in his ankle.

Gary Best’s attack on Mark Phillips exposed the PNC’s desperation

first_imgDear Editor,Please permit me a few column inches in your newspaper to respond to unsubstantiated and fallacious claims by PNCR executive Rear Admiral Gary Best, who, out of sheer desperation, attempted to discredit the credentials of an outstanding patriot, Brigadier (Ret’d), Mark Phillips.Rear Admiral Best, a former army chief himself, at one of the PNCR’s Friday rants sought to make the case that Brigadier Phillips is no match for his party’s leader, Brigadier (ret’d) David Granger – a most outlandish statement from a man who we once entrusted with the protection of our borders.I wish to remind Rear Admiral Best of a few facts. First, Brigadier Phillips led the Guyana Defence Force with distinction and has maintained an untainted character post-military.Brigadier Phillips is also highly qualified, both as a military officer and an academic. He is a graduate of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, in the United Kingdom. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Management from the University of Guyana and a Master’s Degree in Public Sector Management from La Pontificia Universidad Catolica Madre y Maestra in the Dominican Republic.Brigadier Phillips has held several appointments, including Colonel (Administration and Quartering), and Colonel (General Staff) in the GDF’s Defence Headquarters, during his 30 years of military service.  He was also Guyana’s Head of Delegation to the Inter-American Defence Board from 2008 to 2009, and was up to 2011 Guyana’s non-resident Military Attaché to Venezuela. Over the years, Brigadier Phillips has demonstrated his ability to manage.Brigadier Phillips is an outstanding orator with hands-on knowledge of our national security architecture. He has never violated our Constitution and has always demonstrated respect for the rule of law.Having listened to Brigadier Phillips’s presentation on a recent televised interview relating to national security, one can easily conclude that he is au fait with the current state of our national security and has a vision of how to correct this mess created by the Granger-led APNU/AFC.Having outlined the impeccable record of Brigadier Phillips, let us now examine Brigadier Granger’s record, both as a military officer and President of Guyana.Granger was never seen as fit and proper to lead the Guyana Defence Force and was never appointed to such a post due to his poor management skills or lack thereof. As a matter of fact, both President Burnham and President Hoyte bypassed him and appointed others. His failed Government is the testimony that he is unfit and improper to lead or manage anything.Despite his promises, Granger failed to devise a national security plan for Guyana, even though he is surrounded by the likes of Best and others who claim to have all the answers to issues of national security.Granger has violated and continues to violate the Constitution which he swore to uphold, both as an officer of the GDF and President of Guyana.Further, he has very poor knowledge of national security and continues to bungle on this issue every time he attempts to speak to this matter, making him a mismatch for Brigadier Phillips.Editor, I would also like to highlight that Rear Admiral Best has no moral authority to question the intelligence and integrity of anyone. He publicly supports a coalition whose tenure in office is wreaked in corruption, cronyism, nepotism, incompetence and disregard for the Constitution and the rule of law. Brigadier Phillips, on the other hand, is not a member of any political party and has never supported a Government that has violated our Constitution.Rear Admiral Best speaks of integrity but lives on a plot of land at Pradoville 2 where he constructed a sprawling mansion for which Former Housing Minister, Irfaan Ali is facing politically-concocted charges.Yours respectfully,Edward Laynelast_img read more

House-to-house registration to begin by June – GECOM

first_imgAs all of Guyana patiently awaits the ruling of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) on the No-confidence Motion appeal that was passed in the National Assembly on December 21, 2018, the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) was ordered to still prepare for elections and registration for this process is likely to begin by June. This was confirmed by GECOM’s Public Relations Officer, Yolanda Warde.Warde in an invited comment told Guyana Times on Monday that the necessary training for election officials has begun in several areas across the country.“The decision for house-to-house registration was initially part of our 2019 work programme as agreed to by the Commission and subsequently, I think sometime in February where the Commission had moved a motion to return to its original work programme in light of all that has happened during the No-confidence Motion. In so doing, the Secretariat has commenced its preparations for the conduct of house-to-house registration and so I think it was the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of March training for the trainers commenced. Subsequently, there was the training in Georgetown I think at 16 locations on the weekend of the 30th and 31st (of March) and of as at yesterday (Sunday) training continued on the East Coast and on the East Bank (of Demerara),” Ward explained.According to her, the training was conducted for persons who serve as Assistant Registration Officers and enumerators during the period.That training is expected to wind down sometime in May, she detailed, as it is expected to have a six-week to two-month duration. It was on this note that she informed Guyana Times of GECOM’s plans to begin house-to-house registrations in June.“We anticipate all things being equal, that training should conclude sometime in May. We haven’t definitely determined that timeline as yet but once training is finished, I figure by the first week in June, the actual conduct of house-to-house registration will commence,” the PRO indicated.She pointed out that this process will run for about three to four months.The PRO was unable to say how long after hosting the registration process GECOM would be ready to facilitate elections.She would only say, “Pending all the new developments right now that has happened, as you know initially the Chairman of the Commission had written to the President indicating a November timeline given that house-to-house registration would have wrapped up by then and to move into elections by the end of November. As you know, things have evolved since then there has been a Court of Appeal ruling and subsequently now to the CCJ so whatever other timelines are being looked at I think that would be based on the outcome of those rulings and whatever other decisions are to be taken.”Warde reminded that President David Granger has committed to providing the Commission with the additional funds it needs to facilitate the much anticipated elections.According to her, those additional monies would be absolutely necessary, if GECOM is to host free and fair elections in a timely manner.The PRO was keen to note, “ Shorter time period means that you need more staff, you need rapid procurement, you need a number of other (things) so it means that cost will eventually go up and so our request was taking all those factors into consideration”.CCJ caseOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo had initially requested that the CCJ to rule on the no-confidence matter before April 30, when the current voters’ list expires. However the matter is to be heard on May 10.On March 22, the Appeal Court in a 2:1 ruling said a majority of 34 votes would have been needed to validly pass the No-confidence Motion brought against the Government last year.The ruling means the motion was not validly passed, and hence the coalition Administration was not toppled as a result of the events that occurred in the National Assembly on December 21, 2018 – when the minority Opposition had secured the crossover vote of former Alliance For Change (AFC) Member of Parliament Charrandas Persaud to obtain a 33 majority to pass the No-confidence Motion in the National Assembly.Government had subsequently asked the House to reverse the passage of the motion, but its Speaker, Dr Barton Scotland, had declined the request.As such, Government had gone to the High Court to challenge the validity of the motion, saying that a 34 majority is needed for it to be successfully passed.Acting Chief Justice Roxane George had, in January, upheld the December 21, 2018 passage of the No-confidence Motion, ruling that in Guyana’s 65-member National Assembly a majority is 33.Since the passage of the no-confidence resolution, GECOM has been accused of dragging its feet with respect to elections preparation.last_img read more

Lakers falter late vs. Cavs

first_imgCLEVELAND – If the Lakers were going to salvage something from this two-week road trip, if they were going to fly home thinking about anything other than a three-game losing streak, then Kobe Bryant was going to have to carry them to the finish line. Bryant scored his team’s first 14 points of the fourth quarter and doubled LeBron James’ scoring output for the afternoon. Yet the Lakers were left with a 99-90 loss Sunday to the Cleveland Cavaliers and a 3-5 trip that was far from perfect. “We have to take what it is,” Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. “Just re-establish ourselves, go back home and try and build some momentum again. That’s all the NBA is. It’s a roller-coaster ride between wins and losses, and you just have to keep your spirits up and go back and work hard.” Jackson told his players in the locker room that they gave away Sunday’s game. It was hard to reach another conclusion after the Lakers held Cleveland to just 12 points on 4-of-25 shooting in the third quarter, then lost the fourth quarter 35-23. If the game turned on one possession, it came with 1:26left and the Lakers trailing 88-85. The Cavaliers double-teamed Bryant with Pavlovic and Larry Hughes, who knocked the ball out of his hands. “It was a great defensive play,” Bryant said. “He just made a great defensive play. I was looking to read some of my cutters, try to get other guys involved in that particular situation. He made a great defensive play.” Pavlovic raced ahead and scored at the other end as part of a three-point play after a soft foul by Smush Parker. The Lakers would get as close as 91-87 but couldn’t grab a rebound after Pavlovic missed a 3-pointer, giving up a basket to Varejao. As a result, the Lakers added Sunday’s loss to the ledger from this trip. They lost five of the eight games but were thoroughly beaten only by Detroit. The other four losses were games that could have gone in the Lakers’ favor. Jackson had wanted to go 6-2on this trip, the Lakers’ longest since December 1989. Instead, Bryant was being asked afterward if injuries and the road had caught up to the Lakers, who are 4-9 in their past 13 games. “That’s part of it,” Bryant said. “We’re a much better team when we have everybody healthy. With that being said, we had opportunities to win games on this road trip that we just didn’t win. The only positive thing is that it’s over.” James finished with 18 points and made just 5 of 16 shots. He still caused problems for the Lakers in the fourth quarter, collapsing the defense on drives and finding Pavlovic for a 3-pointer and Varejao for an 18-footer in the last four minutes. Odom started matched up against James and finished with 11 points, 11 rebounds and an assist. But Odom made only 5of 13 shots and Jackson said afterward that Odom “looked like he wasn’t stepping into the vacuum” in the fourth quarter. “It’s time to go home. We’ll feel better when we get back to L.A,” Odom said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!center_img “Our defense pretty much caved,” said Bryant, who finished with 36 points. “We gave them a lot of easy opportunities at the basket, a lot of free throws. The fourth quarter is when you really want to hold a team in and force them to hit shots, not put them at the free-throw line.” The Cavaliers went 13-of-18from the line in the fourth quarter while the Lakers shot six free throws. They also got 46 points from their bench players – 21 from Sasha Pavlovic and 12 from Anderson Varejao – compared to 15 from their Lakers’ counterparts. Bryant played 44 minutes in all and came back for the entire fourth quarter; James didn’t return until the 6:47 mark. Bryant made a turnaround with a hand in his face, drilled a 21-footer over Pavlovic and tossed in a reverse layup with three defenders in his vicinity. That also might have been part of the problem. Bryant made 5-of-8 shots in the fourth quarter, while the rest of the Lakers went 3-of-11. “According to Kobe, nobody else wanted to step up in that sequence,” Jackson said. “That was one of the things that we were looking for was somebody else to try and get going.” last_img read more

Sergi Samper (Barcelona) – The new Busquets/Modric to head to England? – Barcelona’s academy has produced another gem in Sergi Samper, who has caught the attention of United and Arsenal. The 20-year-old deep-lying midfielder is being likened to Sergio Busquets and Luka Modric, for his range of passing and tackling tenacity.
