We have a really strong first group, and for us in the second unit, we’re just trying to contain and even surpass the energy of our opponent, to give our guys a good rest and give ourselves a chance to make a good run and put ourselves in a good position to win,” said Heruela.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netIt’s no secret that San Miguel has relied heavily on its talented starting five to build a dynasty the last half a decade, but on Sunday, the Beermen banked on the other guys for a change.Guys like Brian Heruela, Gabby Espinas, and Matt Ganuelas-Rosser came up big in San Miguel’s 111-87 Game 3 victory over Magnolia in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup Finals as the trio accounted for the bulk of the Beermen’s surprising 33 bench points.ADVERTISEMENT Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K.

Gov’t Losing Thousands at Buutuo Port

first_imgThe inaccessibility to Buutuo Port of Entry due to bad roads and damage to the ferry are causing the Liberian government huge losses in revenue, this paper has learned.The Deputy Revenue Collector at Buutuo Port of Entry, Mr. Peter Miamen, told the Daily Observer that in the absence of good roads, Buutuo Port of Entry will never gain its prewar status.He said many of the sub-ports remain porous owing to a lack of manpower, thus, leaving the entire area open to smuggling.“The Ganta Port of Entry has become a lucrative area of revenue collection. It used to be a sub-port to Buutuo Port of Entry prior to the war,” Miamen explained.“Presently, there are no customs officers at the port [Buutuo Port of Entry] and the ferry used for bringing goods into Liberia has been down since 2002,” our correspondent was told.Mr. Miamen said efforts by the Ivorian Government some weeks ago to pull the damage ferry from the river by caterpillar became impossible due to the fact that most parts of the ferry are on the Liberian side of the border. Our Nimba Correspondent stated that Behwalay, one of the sub-ports, has been vulnerable since the 15-year-old civil war came to an end.Behwalay is situated around one of the Ivorian commercial towns known as Toulepleu. Aside from that, there are many other crossing points that were under the sub-collector that used to be in Behwalay.Buutuo is strategically located because it links to many Ivorian commercial towns. But the road leading to Buutuo from Bahn is yet to be rehabilitated.“We are facing the challenge presented by this long distance without a vehicle; and the only motorbike assigned to the port is down,” he concluded.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgGiorgio Chiellini, Mats Hummels and Serge Gnabry are among those to have so far pledged to Common Goal, with Premier League players Daniels and Mawson now joining them.“I’ve been speaking to several English players who have shown an interest in Common Goal and it’s brilliant that Charlie and Alfie are the first players to make the pledge,” said Mata.“They are both top Premier League players and their commitment is a great step in the evolution of Common Goal.”Daniels has helped Bournemouth rise from League One to the Premier League, while Mawson, 23, represented England at this year’s European Under-21 Championship after a fine first season at Swansea.“I don’t want to cause any fuss or anything, but joining Common Goal allows me to focus on my career while forming part of something that can really help transform lives of those less fortunate,” said Mawson. “It’s a good thing for football.”Daniels, 31, said: “Football is such an important part of my life, as it is for so many people in this country. It just seems right that our national sport gives something back to society.“Common Goal is the most effective and long-lasting way for players to make a difference.”Common Goal is run by the Berlin-based organisation streetfootballworld, which invests in more than 120 football-based charities in 80 countries.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Juan Mata’s Common Goal project supports football-based projects around the world © AFP/File / Paul ELLISLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 20 – Bournemouth’s Charlie Daniels and Swansea’s Alfie Mawson have become the first English players to pledge at least one percent of their wages to Juan Mata’s Common Goal project.The Manchester United and Spain midfielder launched the initiative in August, which supports football-based projects around the world.last_img read more

Man United will not finish in the top 4: Five Conclusions From Euro Footie Weekend

first_img Tags: topTop 5 Weekend observations Mourinho’s relationship with several United players keeps on deteriorating (Photo by Agency)1- No Top Four for Manchester United: Record Premier League champions Manchester United still look great on paper. In fact, given the right coaching, they should be challenging for the title.Sadly for the Red Devils, a cord has been broken between manager Jose Mourinho and his players.  Incessant criticism of his players, especially the defense and Paul Pogba, is boomeranging on the United boss. There is no way United can reach the top four with such a clueless back line and dispirited camp.2- Manuel Pellegrini Proving His Mettle. I opined in these very lines that the only difference between West Ham United and Arsenal is self-belief.At the time, I sounded ludicrous because the Hammers were stuck in the bottom three. Manager Pellegrini’s astute management has since brought the best out of Michail Antonio, Marco Arnautovic, Javier Hernández and star man Felipe Anderson. By season end, West Ham should be challenging for Europe.3- Messi, Ronaldo Remain Top Two: Lionel Messi’s hat-trick at Levante, in a game in which he also created two more goals underlines how upset the greatest club player of all time is, to finish fifth in the race for last season’s Ballon D’Or.With Cristiano Ronaldo also leading Serie A’s goal involvement, the pair are proving Luca Modric’s award was just a temporary blip. Kylian Mbappe, Mo Salah, Harry Kane and Neymar must pull up their socks.4- False Nine Crucial to Chelsea Revival: Maurizio Sarri’s trust in orthodox centre forwards Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata has been diminished by consecutive victories over title favourites Manchester City and Brighton Hove.Blues orchestrator in chief Eden Hazard has rediscovered his mojo with a goal and three assists to lead the EPL’s goal involvement thanks to his deployment as a false nine. Can’t see Sarri reverting to Giroud or Morata.5- Son Heuing Min Must Start for Spurs: Tottenham Hotspur’s laboured victory over Burnley, in part, borne out of manager Mauricio Pochettino’s decision to start Erik Lamela instead of South Korean dynamo Son.Without the speed demon’s direct running and unpredictability, the North Londoners came within minutes of dropping points. Lesson learned: Spurs’ attack is most devious with Son and Lucas Moura running around Harry Kane.Comments last_img read more

Oyella who was later replaced by Rachael Nanyongo also impressed, scoring 26 goals from 29 attempts.Speaking after the game, She Cranes assistant head coach Nelson Bogere was adamant that the game was tough but also praised Proscovia.“It has not been an easy game,” noted Bogere.“It Trinidad played a good game and gave us hard time but we managed to do it at the end.“Proscovia was good today, she has principles of a leader.“We told her at halftime his important this game was and you saw how she came back stronger.”The win sees Uganda remain third on the Group G standings with 2 victories and one defeat.Kiwanuka’s side remain on course for a semi final spot but will need to upset South Africa, one of the two nations yet to lose a game in the group.The She Cranes return to action on Wednesday against South Africa.The other results on Monday-Zimbabwe 46-79 New Zealand-Northern Ireland 43-47 Malawi-Australia 91-22 Barbados-Sri Lanka 88-50 Singapore-Jamaica 48-56 England-Fiji 54-55 Samoa-Trinidad & Tobago 54-57 Uganda-South Africa 66-38 ScotlandComments Tags: Nelson BogereNetball World CupPeace ProscoviaRachael NanyongaStella OyellaVincent Kiwanukalast_img read more
