We Can Still Win AWCON – Dennerby (Audio)

first_imgAudio Playerhttps://www.busybuddiesng.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/post-match-1-2-1.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.A defiant Thomas Dennerby says that the Super Falcons cannot allow themselves wallow in “negative feelings” following Sunday’s opening day loss to South Africa in Group B of the 2018 African Women Cup of Nations in Ghana. The Swede says that despite the loss, the Falcons still aim to “win this tournament and go to the World Cup”.The Falcons fell to a first-ever opening day defeat at the AWCON when substitute Chrestinah Kgatlana lashed home in the 85th minute to give Banyana Banyana a one nil victory which according to Dennerby shows how much improved other African women national teams have become with South Africa a very prominent example.The Falcons’ preparations leading up to this tournament had been less than ideal with the team not playing a single friendly against any national teams. For a side that had played just six matches in two years, jaunts against a pair of U16 boys teams and a so-called “Eleven Sisters” women’s team was hardly sufficient preparation and it was perhaps with this in mind that Dennerby had attempted to downplay expectations even going as far suggesting in his pre-match conference that the Falcons could lose in their opening game. That defeat duly came but it was the manner of it that proved disappointing to Dennerby.“I can see it with my own eyes what is happening in this continent and I can see that indeed a lot of teams have improved,” the Swede said. “I also know that South Africa prepared the team very well [by playing] a lot of friendlies this year.“South Africa are really good on the counter attacks and we know that, we have analyzed and we know what was coming, that is the only thing I feel a little bit sad about that they scored just the way we are talking about so much that this should not happen.“If you lose the ball in midfield, we have to fall back immediately with the defenders to kill the space behind don’t let them come with speed and play the ball in front of players that are coming and that is exactly what happened with the goal.”Having lost their first game, Dennerby says he would now pick up the players to ensure they put the loss behind them as quickly as possible in order to focus on the upcoming fixtures against Zambia and Equatorial Guinea.“[Just] because [we have lost] one game in a tournament, the first game you can’t start having negative feelings.“You need to directly after the game, tell the girls that ‘come on girls, it was just the first 90 minutes now is really time to come together and fight because there are two games that can take us to the semi-final,” he said.The Falcons next play on Wednesday 21 November when they take on the Shepolopolo of Zambia and Dennerby believes that the more time the Falcons spend together will make them better as they grow into the tournament. Notwithstanding the team’s inadequate preparations, the aim Dennerby says, still remains a World Cup berth and a ninth AWCON title.“I think also time is good for us,” he said, “the more we [are] together the more we play together everybody knows already that we have a little bit lack of friendlies before, so I think we have good chance to improve the team and we don’t change our aim, we still want to win this tournament and go to the world cup no doubt about that.”RelatedWe Were Not Afraid of Nigeria – Banyana Banyana (AUDIO)November 19, 2018In “AWCON”Beat Zambia, Prove You Are A Big Team – Dennerby Tells FalconsNovember 21, 2018In “AWCON”Ajibade Set for Debut Against Bayana Bayana As Dennerby Names Chikwelu CaptainNovember 18, 2018In “AWCON”last_img read more

Utes open practice, prepare for long trip

first_imgThe University of Utah men’s basketball team began practicing Friday, nearly three months earlier than most teams in America.However, the Utes are well within the rules as they are practicing prior to a trip to Australia next month. Men’s basketball programs are allowed to take one summer foreign trip every four years.For the Utes, it’s actually their first trip in six years, but it couldn’t come at a better time for a program that features a new coach trying to implement new ideas to young players.Coach Jim Boylen, who took over the Ute program in late March, was disappointed that a few of his players weren’t as well-conditioned as he’d hoped, but said the first practice session went well.”It’s great to be out here,” Boylen said. “This is a great situation for us to be together and learn together. I’m happy to have the opportunity to grow and trust each other.”The 12-day trip begins Aug. 7 and will include six games against club teams, some with professional players much older than the Utes.The trip to Australia will be special for two Utes, Luke Nevill and Stephen Weigh, who are natives of the Land Down Under, although from opposite coasts.Nevill, who hails from Perth on the east coast, is excited about the trip and guesses “100-plus people” he knows will come out to see him play in his hometown. However, he said he’s not looking forward to the 14-hour flight, particularly after recently returning from 2 1/2 months in Australia.Weigh, a 6-foot-6 forward from Rockhampton, also recently came back from his homeland but is excited about the upcoming trip.”It’s going to be great to be back home,” he said. “This trip will be a big thing for our team. Traveling overseas is a good thing for bonding as a team. It’s going to be a great time and a really good experience.”Others going on the trip for Utah include Johnnie Bryant, Shawn Green, Lawrence Borha, Curtis Eatmon, Kim Tillie, Luka Drca and Chris Grant. First-year players are not allowed, according to NCAA rules.The Utes will have 10 days to practice before leaving for Australia. Boylen is stressing defense and toughness to his players.”I want us to become a more defense-minded team and build a good foundation,” he said. “That’s my main goal.” I think we have the shooting and ability to score, but we have to get some grit and toughness.” The Utes will return home Aug. 19 and get back into school. The coaches will be able to conduct individual workouts with players during the fall, but official practice won’t begin until Oct. 12. E-mail: sor@desnews.comlast_img read more

Wales run riot to crush Italy

first_imgWALES ran in nine tries in a devastating attacking display to demolish Italy 67-14 on Saturday and finish a disappointing Six Nations campaign on a high.The Welsh, beaten 25-21 by champions England last weekend, will finish second in the standings while Italy come bottom after losing all five matches.“We are still disappointed with last week and we owed it to the fans,” Wales captain Dan Lydiate told the BBC.“We still gave away some soft tries but the boys played their hearts out and I couldn’t ask for anything else from them,” added the flanker who was leading the side in place of the injured Sam Warburton.“Two bad halves of rugby let us down in this championship and let’s hope we learn from that and we never start again like we did in the game against England.”Scrumhalf Rhys Webb barrelled over from close range to open the scoring for the hosts, celebrating his first start since sustaining a serious leg injury before last year’s World Cup.Italy scrumhalf Guglielmo Palazzani was sin-binned for falling offside and flyhalf Dan Biggar crossed for the second Welsh try before centre Jonathan Davies finished off a flowing move under the posts to stretch the lead to 27-0 at halftime.Centre Jamie Roberts, winger George North and fullback Liam Williams touched down as Wales cut loose in the second half and replacement flanker Ross Moriarty added two late scores before Gareth Davies completed the rout.Palazzani and centre Gonzalo Garcia grabbed Italy’s consolation tries.“We lost against a great team in Wales which shows the young guys must work on this defeat and get better for future,” Italy captain Sergio Parisse said.“The campaign was really difficult, every team gets injuries but for us it is maybe much more difficult because we don’t have the depth but no excuses, from June we have another staff and maybe things will change.”last_img read more

Mirror, mirror on the phone, am I still the fairest of them all?

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo took his obsession with his image to new heights as he examined his bloodied face on the mobile phone of a Real Madrid doctor while walking off the pitch towards the end of Sunday’s 7-1 win over Deportivo La Coruna.Ronaldo scored twice against Deportivo to help ease Real’s recent crisis but paid a heavy price for his second goal in the 84th minute as opposing defender Fabian Schar kicked the Portuguese forward in the face as he leapt to net his side’s sixth goal of the game.Ronaldo, who once claimed people were envious of him “because I’m rich, handsome and a great player”, was left with his entire face drenched in blood and required treatment on the pitch immediately after scoring.The club’s doctors declared him unable to continue for the remainder of the game even though Real had used their three changes. As Ronaldo walked towards the dressing room his main preoccupation was with how his face looked.He asked one of Madrid’s medical staff if he could use his phone and was seen using the mobile’s screen to scrutinise his face, which was left as red as the shirt of his former club Manchester United.last_img read more
