Reid aiming to lift level of football in region

first_imgCONCACAF director of football, Horace Reid, says the mission of the new office, which was officially opened at the New Kingston Shopping Centre on Wednesday, will help to make Caribbean Football Union (CFU) members and their football stronger, more competitive and respected on the world stage, both on and off the field.Reid, a former Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) general secretary, says they also want to make the most of benefits available to regional members and establish programmes that will drive the region’s football forward.”The role of the office is to serve our 31 members, to elevate our service level and improve the lot of the Caribbean. It’s a wide area of responsibility as we want improve administration, improve grassroots programmes and our capacity-building programmes.”We want this region to become one that the global football family will respect, not only on the pitch but off it,” he said.He noted that not everyone in the region will qualify for a World Cup, but he believes every association has the right to follow their dreams and aspirations and that the office was established to help everyone maximise their full potential.ACHIEVING DREAMS”We are not here to dictate how and what they dream, but to help them once they have that vision and the aspiration, to achieve it. But the reality is that we have a diverse region, we have countries with ten million people and we have countries with 500,000 people so everybody will have different objectives and different goals,” he continued.Reid also wants to make the most of benefits available to regional members and use it to drive the region’s football forward.”We also want to utilise the assistance coming to our region, through the ONE CONCACAF initiative, through the FIFA Forward Programme and ensure that investment coming to the region is efficient in how it is utilised, where we can move Caribbean football in a new direction,” he reasoned.Meanwhile, the former CONACACAF director of competitions, has also employed the services of two of his trusted employees of the JFF in Latoya DaCosta, who will oversee operations involving CONCACAF competitions and Andre Waugh, who has been drafted as development manager. However, other administrative slots remain unfilled and other staff members will be added in the coming days and weeks.last_img read more

Spurs beat Arsenal, no St Totteringham Day

first_img Had it not been for Cech’s agility, Arsenal might have fallen behind sooner. The second period opened with Victor Wanyama’s shot being tipped over and Kane’s effort collected by the goalkeeper. But Arsenal was undone in the 55th minute. Kane ran onto a long throw-in and held up the ball under pressure from Gabriel Paulista. Alli seized possession and passed to Eriksen, who weaved past Laurent Koscielny before testing Cech. The shot was parried, but Alli stuck out his left boot into a crowded area to clip the loose ball into the net. Arsenal never recovered. It took 77 seconds for the penalty to be conceded, with Kane going down lightly under Gabriel’s challenge and winning the spotkick. Kane thrives against Arsenal. His 27th goal of the season was his fifth in five league games against Arsenal. Cech kept his team in the game, with a flying save that prevented Vertonghen’s shot from curling into the top corner and Toby Alderweireld’s effort being blocked. But Arsenal could find no way back against Tottenham, which is now virtually assured of making the top four, given its superior goal difference over fifth-place Manchester United. Arsenal’s season could still end with the FA Cup if it beats Chelsea at Wembley Stadium. Tottenham will still be hoping Chelsea doesn’t enter the final as Premier League champions. LONDON, England (AP): Tottenham shifted the balance of power in north London’s football rivalry by securing its first Premier League finish above Arsenal in 22 years with a 2-0 victory over its neighbor yesterday. Arsenal imploded inside 77 seconds at the start of the second half to hand Tottenham a ninth consecutive league win. In the penultimate game at White Hart Lane before the stadium is demolished, Dele Alli scrambled the ball into the net and Harry Kane won a soft penalty that he converted. “We worked hard. We outworked them,” Kane said. “The fans have got the bragging rights for now, but we’ve still got four important games to finish off.” Manager Mauricio Pochettino’s hopes of overhauling Chelsea’s four-point lead at the top of the league are fading after the leaders’ win over Everton. But Spurs are still locking down second place for their highest finish in 54 years and on the brink of a second successive season in the Champions League for the first time. There was no doubting which team was on top. It looked like Tottenham might pay for its missed chances in the first half when Alli headed wide and Christian Eriksen swept a shot over and Jan Vertonghen was denied by goalkeeper Petr Cech.

Federer wins record 8th Wimbledon as Cilic bid ends in tears

I don’t know if it will work as well again.”Cilic, who had spent four and a half hours more than Federer getting to the final, said retiring with his injury was never an option.“I never give up in a match. I gave it my best — it’s all I can do,” said Cilic who was still emotional at the trophy presentation.“I had an amazing journey here. I played the best tennis of my life. I really want to thank my team — they gave so much strength to me.”Beneath a star-studded Royal Box where Prince William and wife Kate rubbed shoulders with actors Hugh Grant and Bradley Cooper, Cilic had his first break point in the fourth game.It was saved by Federer and it was to be Cilic’s only glimmer of hope.Nasty fall Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite Chot asks fans to give Kobe time: ‘He’s just 19’ 787 earthquakes recorded in 24 hours due to restive Taal Volcano Duterte’s ‘soft heart’ could save ABS-CBN, says election lawyer Switzerland’s Roger Federer kisses the trophy after defeating Croatia’s Marin Cilic to win the Men’s Singles final match on day thirteen at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London Sunday, July 16, 2017.

No love lost between TNT, San Miguel

first_imgPhoto by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netThere was no love lost between rivals San Miguel Beer and TNT as they figured in a highly-physical, drama-filled duel made for the playoffs, if not in a finals setting.At the center of it all was Beermen guard Chris Ross, who drew the ire of TNT’s Michael Craig Jr., Roger Pogoy and Ranidel de Ocampo throughout Wednesday night’s game.ADVERTISEMENT “I told him that he’s a really good player, don’t get involved in anything else just play the game the right way,” Ross said of Pogoy. “You’re representing the country with Gilas, you’re there for a reason. He’s a very talented player so that’s what I told him and he’s young in the league and he’ll be in this league for a long time and you gonna get better.”Meanwhile, Ross understood where Craig, who struggled offensively but still had a solid game with 16 points and 18 rebounds, was coming from being as competitive as him.“He’s a good player, man. He’s a big boy, he’s a great passer, but I think the more he gets used to his team the more he gets better. He’s a competitor so I’m a competitor too.”ADVERTISEMENT View comments The matchup was a rematch of last conference’s championship series won by San Miguel in six games and the two teams picked up where they left off.“It’s the first time we play those guys in the last three weeks, last month or something. Obviously, it was for bigger stakes last month, but there were a lot of emotions in this game,” said Ross, who collected five points, eight rebounds and 10 assists to help San Miguel fend off TNT, 97-91.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

The graduating Lady Tamaraw averaged 15 points and 14.5 excellent receptions in the two wins FEU tallied this week.Pons’ efforts helped the Lady Tamaraws end their elimination round campaign as the No. 2 seed with a 10-4 record and go to the Final Four with a twice-to-beat edge over Ateneo.2.

The author will base the rankings on the players’ team standings, statistics, and the intangibles that don’t appear on the stat sheets.ADVERTISEMENT Jo Koy draws ire for cutting through Cebu City traffic with ‘wang-wang’ The angelic Jema Galanza has played her last two games in Adamson’s navy-and-white.Those two games, even though one ended up in an Adamson win, were pure heartbreak for Galanza who faced the reality that she won’t be in the Final Four in her final year in the UAAP.The Lady Falcons were already out of Final Four contention the moment they lost to La Salle on Wednesday, 25-21, 25-15, 22-25, 25-18, as the loss allowed NU to lock up the fourth seed.Galanza then, finished her career with a victory over University Santo Tomas, 25-6, 25-23, 25-23, wherein she finished with 12 points, the same offensive output she had against the Lady Spikers.5.
