The Charrúa did not enter the call of Tuchel to play the Cup match against Lorient waiting to close his exit. This will be the second consecutive game lost after not playing against Monaco due to injury. Cavani played his last game with PSG on January 12 against the Monegasque team in Ligue 1. The forward, who was returning from a muscle injury, only played four minutes in the draw (3-3) against Robert Moreno’s team. Cavani ends contract with PSG in June, but Atlético tries to close its arrival this January by all means. Gil Marín, general director of Atlético, traveled to Paris on Tuesday to meet with PSG representatives and approach positions at the ECA meeting. The irruption of Icardi and the injuries have diminished the minutes of Cavani. The ‘9’ of the PSG has played 568 minutes spread over 14 games in which he has scored five goals and has given one assist. 9 Atlético de Madrid returns to charge by Edinson Cavani, 32 years. According, L’Équipe, the rojiblanco club has done an offer of ten million euros so that the Uruguayan striker leaves the PSG this winter market and arrives at the Metropolitan. RMC Sports notes that the Parisian team rejected the offer not wanting to let his striker out in January, despite Le Parisien encrypting the price of his departure in this amount.

Twenty-nine-year-old Quincy Messiah, who murdered his friend following an argument over a hammock in November 2014, was on Wednesday sentenced to serve 10 years behind bars for the capital offence by Justice Navindra Singh at the High Court.After considering the facts of the case presented to him by State Prosecutors Tiffini Lyken, Abigail Gibbs and Natasha Backa, Justice Singh told the accused that no excuse can justify his actions on the faithful day of November 28, 2014; that is the day he murdered Trevor Ragabeer.Both men, Messiah and Ragabeer, resided at Lot 9 Camp and D’Urban Streets,Quincy MessiahGeorgetown.On the day of the tragic incident, the men had an argument over a hammock which was being used by both of them, when Ragabeer reportedly made a derogatory remark to Messiah about his mother.Messiah’s mother was killed in front of him when he was seven-years-old.This remark reportedly enraged Messiah and as such, he picked up a knife and dealt Ragabeer several stabs about his body, killing him.Attorney for the accused, George Thomas, told the court that because of the trauma faced by his client at a young age when his mother was murdered in front of him, Messiah was unable to get over his past which resulted in his actions on November 28. He begged for leniency, reminding the court that the accused accepted ownership of the crime he committed.Messiah told Justice Singh that he was sorry for his actions and revealed that he was affected mentally. He further revealed that since his imprisonment, he has been taking anger management classes.Prosecutor Gibbs however objected to leniency being granted to the accused noting that a lack of education, a troubled past and growing up without a mother cannot be used as justification for taking a life.Justice Singh in making his deliberation said that he noted that the accused did indeed have a troubled past which triggered him when he was told about his mother by Ragabeer.He recommended that Messiah receive special counselling. He then sentenced him to 10 years imprisonment, with time already served to be deducted.
K’Ogalo dropped to the second tier Confederation Cup after losing by a solitary goal to three-time African Champions Esperance du Tunis in the Champions League second round and they harbor the country’s hope or breaking that duck.Head coach Dylan Kerr is a man eager to get a Kenyan side back to continental football and he has urged his charges to be on the right side of history when they face South Africa’s SuperSport United in the first leg of the group stage play-off on Sunday.“It’s a massive game because once again we are carrying the hopes of Kenyan football on our shoulders and we have a massive task ahead of us. It’s a massive challenge for us but the beauty of being a footballer is rising to these challenges,” Kerr acknowledged.“We can create our own history now; let Gor Mahia be known to be in the group stages year in year out from now. We have the talent, we just need to make sure we go to the game heads high hearts in our sleeves and give a performance that befits Gor Mahia and make our fans happy,” the tactician further pointed out.SuperSport United midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane in action against Polokwane City on April 4, 2018. PHOTO/Soccer LadumaGor will fancy their chances against a SuperSport side struggling to knit results despite reaching the final of last year’s Confederations Cup where they lost to TP Mazembe.They arrived in Nairobi fresh off a 1-0 loss at the hands of Polokwane City in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) and their status in South Africa’s top tier is more than worrying. They are placed 14th in the standings, three points off the drop zone.They have not won over their last four domestic outings and the only victory they have enjoyed is a 2-1 win over Angola’s Petro de Luanda in the second leg of the Confederations Cup. But even in their dwindling fortunes, Kerr is not resting on his laurels.“Even though they are doing indifferent this year, they have something to prove. They played in the final last year and they are no pushovers. I know a bit about their history and I know they will be coming in for a fight,” Kerr added.With the exception of their skipper Dean Furman who was suspended for Tuesday’s clash against Polokwane, SuperSport might be coming in with a backlog of fatigue to deal with, adding the baggage of travel on top.Gor Mahia remain optimistic that all factors notwithstanding, they will still be able to gather enough and pick up a win.Gor Mahia striker Meddie Kagere passes the ball as Joash Onyango closes in during a training session at the Camp Toyoyo Ground in Nairobi on April 5, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“I have told these players to look at the big picture. This game will be broadcast all over Africa and they have an opportunity of showcasing themselves to bigger things. If we do it together, as a team, things will happen,” the tactician added.Meanwhile, forward Meddie Kagere says the team has learned its lessons from the Esperance game and they will be keen not to repeat the same mistakes, noting the motivation within the squad is at its peak.“We had very many chances at home in the first leg against Esperance and we lost them. We went in for the second leg and we conceded one goal but we should have scored as well. This time, we will have to take our chances and head to the second leg with a comfortable scoreline,” Kagere added.The same sentiments were echoed by defender Joash Onyango.“For us at the back, we will ensure we don’t concede. But our brothers upfront have to make the chances count. That is the only way we will go through. If we win by a margin of two or three goals in the first leg, it will ease pressure on us in South Africa,” Onyango urged.Kerr has only lost two matches since taking over as Gor boss, a 1-0 league loss against Mathare United last season and last month’s loss to Esperance in Tunis. He will be keen to maintain the same record.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr feeds out instructions to his players during a training session at the Camp Toyoyo Ground in Nairobi on April 5, 2018.

But Saturday’s defeat at the San Siro is more devastating for the former European giants whose sixth position and Europa League berth is now threatened by Atalanta — two points behind — who play Torino on Sunday.“When you play without soul, you get embarrassed like this,” said an angry Gattuso.“We have to apologise to the fans, because we wear a prestigious jersey and we can’t have embarrassing nights like this.”Pietro Iemmello’s 29th minute strike was enough to seal all three points for the southerners, who were down to ten men after Cheick Diabate’s sending off.It gave Roberto De Zerbi’s side just their fifth win of the campaign, and first away victory.However, it merely delays their probable relegation from Serie A as they are still 12 points from safety with five games to play.Franck Kessie came closest to an equaliser on the hour mark when he rattled the crossbar, with Patrick Cutrone also heading wide on 74 minutes.Benevento’s top scorer Diabate came on in place of Iemmello after an hour but was sent off ten minutes before the end.But still Milan could not take advantage of their extra man, becoming the first team to fail to beat Benevento this season.“Today a little Benevento proved you can be great with heart and the desire to play football,” said goalkeeper Christian Puggioni.– ‘Step in right direction’ –Earlier Roma eased past SPAL three days before the Champions League semi-final first leg against Liverpool at Anfield.Eusebio Di Francesco’s Romans have 67 points from 34 games — three ahead of city rivals Lazio who can pull level again when they host Sampdoria on Sunday.“The performance was excellent,” said Di Francesco.“The team’s attitude three days before such an important match with Liverpool is an important step in the right direction.“This is a side that has great goals in its head, a team that looks at the present and not the future, and it’s a moment of great satisfaction for me.”A Francesco Vicari own goal gave Roma a first-half lead in Ferrara with Radja Nainggolan and Patrik Schick adding two more in an eight-minute spell in the second half.SPAL fell to their first defeat in nine games leaving their top-flight survival increasingly in doubt as they sit just one point above the relegation zone.Di Francesco rotated his side ahead of Tuesday’s trip to Anfield with Argentinian left-back Jonathan Silva getting his first start since his January signing.Roma’s top scorer Edin Dzeko stayed on the bench alongside captain Daniele De Rossi with the visitors missing three chances in the first half — Stephan El Shaarawy misfiring twice and Lorenzo Pellegrini also missing a third opportunity.Pellegrini contributed to the opener, crossing a low ball into the area as Vicari turned into his own net when trying to anticipate Kevin Strootman in a scramble in front of goal.But Nainggolan — wearing the captain’s armband and one of many Serie A players to smudge a red streak on his cheek in support of a campaign against violence against women — missed a chance for a second sending the ball into the side netting just before the break.But seven minutes into the second half the Belgian sent a diagonal half-volley into the bottom corner, with Pellegrini setting up Schick to head in the third on the hour mark.It was the first goal for Czech forward Schick since he joined Roma on loan from Sampdoria last August.Fiorentina fell to a 1-0 defeat at lowly Sassuolo, to stay three points behind AC Milan and the Europa League berths.Champions Juventus and second-placed Napoli go head-to-head Sunday in a clash which could decide the Serie A title.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000On target: Roma’s Czech forward Patrik Schick scores the third goal © AFP / MIGUEL MEDINAMILAN, Italy, Apr 22 – Roma warmed up for next week’s Champions League clash with Liverpool by easing past SPAL 3-0 on Saturday but AC Milan’s European hopes took a knock with a shock 1-0 defeat against tailenders Benevento.Benevento had earned their first ever Serie A point last December in Naples in Milan coach Gennaro Gattuso’s first game in charge when goalkeeper Alberto Brignoli scored an injury-time equaliser.
HOUSE: Rep. Pete Stark was criticized for comments about U.S. soldiers in Iraq. By Charles Babington THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Republicans failed in an effort Tuesday to have the House censure Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif., who said in a congressional speech last week that U.S. troops are being sent to Iraq “to get their heads blown off for the president’s amusement.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Without debate, the House voted 196-173 to kill the proposal to censure Stark for “his despicable conduct.” The vote was mostly along party lines, with all 168 Republicans on hand supporting the measure offered by Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio. Five Democrats joined them. Stark, 75, stirred cries of protest Thursday during a debate over President Bush’s veto of a $35 billion increase to a children’s health insurance program. “You don’t have money to fund the war or children,” Stark said on the House floor. “But you’re going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president’s amusement.” Stark initially refused to apologize despite condemnations from GOP lawmakers and others. Moments after Tuesday’s vote, however, he addressed the House to apologize to his colleagues, “to the president and his family,” and to U.S. troops offended by his remarks. “I hope that with this apology I will become as insignificant as I should be” in the continuing debates over Iraq and health care, he said. Boehner was among those who applauded. When asked about Stark’s apology during her afternoon briefing with reporters, White House press secretary Dana Perino said: “This is the first I’ve heard of it. If it’s true that he’s apologized, I think that’s appropriate.” Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Stark’s remarks on Thursday were “inappropriate and distracted from the seriousness of the subject at hand.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Surfing didn’t seem to affect Brown in Thursday’s cross country race with all league teams. Brown finished third in 19:13 over the 3-mile course under warm and dry conditions as part of a 3-4-5 Wilson finish with senior Ashley Hobelman (19:21) and sophomore Jamie Emery (19:23). Seniors Valerie Arechiga (19:45) and Natalie Goudarzian (19:53) rounded out Wilson’s scoring in ninth and 11th. Lakewood junior Maria Damian outsprinted Poly senior Tava Tedesco to win 18:44 to 18:45. In the team competition, Wilson held off defending league champion Poly, 25-30, to go undefeated in the competition scored as individual dual meets. The triumph avenged a 26-29 loss to Poly in the first cluster meet on Sept. 29 to set up a tie heading into the league finals at Heartwell Park on Nov. 4 worth 50 percent of the standings. Aine Brown has felt at ease on land and in the water this fall. On Thursday, the Wilson High junior helped the Bruins cross country team to a victory in the second Moore League cluster meet at El Dorado Park. This morning, Brown will compete in her first competition with the Wilson surf team. Brown, a member of Wilson 2004 Southern Section Division I finalist cross country team, participates in surfing class two to three mornings a week and hit the waves on Wednesday. Brown began surfing for recreation in the eighth grade but never took up the sport seriously until this fall for fear of jeopardizing her cross country and track performances. “I think (surfing) helps me stay in shape,” Brown said. “I don’t feel tired. It’s fun to go out paddling and enjoy the waves. It’s the best class ever.” “It made us work harder because it was only three points,” Brown said. “It wasn’t like do or die, it was more like, /\x27/Let’s get this over with.” We’re working hard as a team and coming in consistently. Even if it’s not first or second but third, fourth and fifth.” Wilson didn’t hesitate to take the initiative on Thursday with Brown and Hobelman leading at the midway point. The Bruins had all five scoring runners ahead of Poly’s No. 3 runner with a mile-and-a-half left on the flat course over cement trails and finished with three ahead of Poly’s No. 2 runner, sophomore Jaasmin Pina. “Aine is running the way that she always could and Ashley is taking a leadership role,” Wilson coach Ed Hauck said. “They have always have had the talent but seem to have understood what they can do if they put their minds to it. I knew they were focused today.” The Poly boys had all they could handle with Wilson in a race in which third through sixth place were separated by a second. The Jackrabbits edged Wilson, 27-28, to remain undefeated. Poly senior Ethan Durham heldoff Wilson sophomore Tony Cairo to win, 15:50 to 15:53 Poly seniors Victor Muro and Joseph Griego were fifth and sixth, both timed in 16:03, to help keep the Jackrabbits’ hopes for an unprecedented 10th league title in a row intact. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
