“Dele’s back, he’s on a better path in the last couple of games, for sure.“Getting a goal will do him the world of good but, within those No 8 positions, look at the comparables in the team.“Barkley has played very well for us over the last 12 months, is now scoring for Chelsea and is playing in that position very well.“Maddison is probably in that sort of area of the pitch and Oxlade-Chamberlain is playing exceptionally well.“He has the athleticism and speed that’s different to all of those others.“That’s why I mentioned Jack Grealish because he’s a very good player, as is Dele.“It’s harder when it’s players like Dele, Jesse Lingard or Eric Dier because they have been a big part of what we have achieved over the last couple of years.”We watch every game. We think we have a very, very good picture of all of the players and exactly what they’ve done in every game, and we can only pick honestly on what we’ve seen.”So far this season, Dele, 23, has not done enough.I spoke to Dele in the two previous months but there’s only so many times that they are going to want to have that conversation.Gareth SouthgateHis Spurs boss, Mauricio Pochettino, claims it is laugh- out-loud stuff for people to question Dele’s thirst and appetite for the game.The midfielder has spluttered into life in the last couple of weeks but has yet to meet the dizzying heights that once marked him out as a mainstay in the England side.Others are out in the cold as well, with Chris Smalling continuing to be overlooked despite an upturn in form during his loan spell with Roma.Lingard is really struggling to make the cut and error-prone defender Michael Keane has joined a lengthy list of senior players overlooked.The Everton centre-half had a torrid time in the Czech Republic defeat and it is difficult to envisage him winning a place again if John Stones can get his act together.For this one, Southgate decided to pick up the dog and bone.England’s head coach added: “Whenever I don’t select a player who has been with us for a period, I always talk them through the rationale of the initial decision then try to pick it up as we go through.“They need feedback — it’s important for players.3“I’ve done that with Michael Keane this time because they want to go away and improve and try to get back in the squad.“All of those guys are capable of getting back in the squad.“In most of those instances, they have missed a fair amount of the early season and pre-season, and that’s definitely affected their opportunities with their clubs.“Even so, they are all young enough to make that step back.”England can guarantee a place at Euro 2020 with a win against Montenegro at Wembley on Thursday or in Pristina against Kosovo on Sunday week.Southgate is still fine-tuning, trying to find the right balance as he looks to the likes of Mount, Barkley and Ox.He added: “I know there is this thirst for this creative player but we’ve scored more than anybody else in qualifying.Gareth Southgate explains why Jack Grealish is not in England squadMost Read in FootballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for him “But I think it’s fair to say that we’re still seeking that pivot who can do all sides of the game.“And if any of you see him, by all means, throw your hat at him.”Right now, that man does not go by the name of Dele.

The Blues midfielder posted a photo of himself on Twitter of him receiving the treatment also known as cupping, where heated glass cups are used to draw blood through small incisions.Williams famously underwent hijama after the 2015 Rugby World Cup final and it is believed to help alleviate aches and pains. It is unsure whether the method will help with concussion.Williams left the field just before halftime in the Blues’ 40-33 Super Rugby victory over the Waratahs in Sydney on Saturday night for a head injury assessment, and never returned. Williams told Australia’s Daily Telegraph how he was faring.”God willing I’ll be all right, and I’m sure I will be,” Williams told the Daily Telegraph. “The doctors did a great job, I passed the test at halftime but they said because I still felt a bit foggy it was better for me to sit down.”Now there’s a lot more studies around it, they’ll pull you off instead of State of Origin style and chuck you out there.”I remember the Mark Carroll days where you get up and try to keep going.”Dr Mark Fulcher, medical director of New Zealand Football, told Stuff in 2015 there is little scientific evidence to support claims hijama helps aches and pains.”My thoughts are it doesn’t really do very much,” Fulcher said.”It’s a good way to get a whole bunch of bruises, but I don’t think it really helps with injury. There are a few studies out there which pretty much conclude that it doesn’t do anything.”Dr Hamish Osborne, senior lecturer of sport and exercise medicine at the University of Otago, also spoke to Stuff in 2015 and said such alternative practices are common place in sports medicine and likened hijama to having a massage.”People like having massages, so it’s doing something for them but there’s no clear evidence that it has benefited or enhanced performance,” he said. “Maybe it helps enhance recovery but even that’s hard to prove. “But athletes like being rubbed so it falls into that category there.” Both Fulcher and Osborne agreed that if Williams feels like he benefits from hijama then he should continue with the treatment. Although they won’t be recommending it to any of their patients. “If he believes it’s helping his aches and pain then it probably is because that’s a relatively modern understanding of pain,” Osborne said.”If somebody believes in a treatment and they are getting less pain from it then that’s a real affect. Will that work if you give it to 1000 people with pain, probably not. “For the people who it works for, it will work beautifully. How is that happening? No idea.” Fulcher added: “In high-end sport anything that makes you feel good can be effective but it’s certainly not a treatment that I would refer people for.” Photo: Hijama leaves circular red marks on the patient’s body – the effect of the suction involved in the ancient remedy.
He becomes the inaugural winner of the Simon Mannering Medal, announced in honour of the retiring club legend who made his 300th NRL appearance on Friday night.Tuivasa-Sheck is just the fourth player to win the supreme accolade more than once following five-times winner Simon Mannering and Steve Price and Ben Matulino, who were two-time winners.The fullback also collected the People’s Choice Award voted on by the public.After being re-signed for four years just before the season started, the Kiwi international has led the Vodafone Warriors to the NRL play-offs for the first time since 2011. They ended their regular season campaign with a 20-16 victory over Canberra on Friday night to finish with a 15-9 win-loss record, the second-equal best record in the club’s history.Throughout the season, Tuivasa-Sheck has been in imperious form, appearing in 22 of the club’s 24 matches.He has made a total of 4058 metres (fourth-best among all players), averaging 184 metres a game including 1093 post-contact metres. In the 23rd-round clash against Newcastle, Tuivasa-Sheck made 338 metres.He is first among all players for most kick return metres (1330) and fifth for most tackle breaks (109).Tuivasa-Sheck is also a top contender for the Dally M Award for the NRL’s player of the year to be named later this month ahead of the grand final.The other nominees for the Player of the Year title were Agnatius Paasi, Issac Luke, Jazz Tevaga and Ken Maumalo.The Warriors NRL Rookie of the Year is Isaiah Papali’i while Blake Green is the Clubman of the Year.
The Summit will adopt the post-2015 Development Agenda on 25 September. Three days of debate about the realisation of these goals by world leaders will follow. Among the speakers will be dozens of Heads of State and Government and other world leaders, including Pope Francis. In the final outcome document, sport is mentioned as “an important enabler of sustainable development.” The declaration highlights what sport can contribute to achieve some of the most important of these like peace, health and education. The post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will include for the first time recognition of sport’s important contribution to global sustainable development. “This is another acknowledgement of the important role of sport in society, one of the major issues of Olympic Agenda 2020, the strategic roadmap for the future of the Olympic Movement,” said President Bach. “It shows that with Olympic Agenda 2020 we are aligned with the United Nations post-2015 Development Agenda. This new agenda specifically acknowledges the important role that sport plays promoting healthy lifestyles, education and social inclusion. It recognises the benefits of sport for all and its ability to empower women and young people.” Accompanying President Bach will be four-time Olympian and IOC Member Angela Ruggiero. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon asked all delegations to include one representative aged 30 or under in their official delegations to acknowledge the enthusiasm, interest and involvement of young people in formulating the post-2015 Development Agenda. There will be a bilateral meeting with United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon where the two leaders will speak about the Sustainable Development Goals and the contribution of sport in their realisation, as well as about other aspects of cooperation between the IOC and the UN. Bilateral meetings between the IOC President and more than a dozen Heads of State and Government have now already been confirmed to discuss the role of sport in society and common action with regard to sustainable development and the autonomy of sport. A Permanent Observer to the United Nations, the IOC has actively supported the process of the post-2015 Development Agenda. The new agenda is a comprehensive set of universal and transformative goals and targets that build on the Millennium Development Goals. UN Member States are committed to fully implementing the agenda by 2030. Sport has gained increasing recognition as a cost‐effective means of tackling the challenges related to social development and peace. The enormous potential of sport comes from its global reach, its universal language, its appeal to all generations, and its resulting sustainable impact on communities in general, and young people in particular. Investing in sport and physical activity brings a number of socio‐economic returns to society. Evidence demonstrates that sport promotes health and the prevention of non‐communicable diseases; sport supports quality education; sport empowers girls and women; sport brings people together and promotes inclusion and non-discrimination; sport provides relief in conflicts; and sport contributes to peaceful and non‐violent societies by promoting tolerance and mutual understanding. Sport brings pride and solidarity to nations. The role of sport was affirmed in the 2005 World Summit Declaration, the follow-up meeting to the UN’s 2000 Millennium Summit. Its significance has been reinforced in the adoption of the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace celebrated annually on 6 April. Increasing recognition of the power of sport has also led to numerous UN resolutions over the years and the appointment by the UN Secretary‐General of a Special Advisor on Sport for Development and Peace in 2001 as well as a recent appointment of IOC Honorary President Jacques Rogge as Special Envoy on Youth Refugees and Sport in 2014. During the discussions on Olympic Agenda 2020, the IOC has redoubled its efforts to strengthen its cooperation and collaboration with international organisations such as the United Nations. In April 2014, the IOC signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the United Nations aimed at strengthening collaboration between the two organisations at the highest level. The General Assembly passed a resolution in October 2014 that “encourages Member States to give sport due consideration in the context of the post‐2015 Development Agenda.” Sport was also included in the Synthesis Report of the UN Secretary-General on the post-2015 agenda. The resolution also acknowledges the independence and autonomy of sport as well as the mission of the IOC in leading the Olympic Movement. “The International Olympic Committee was built on the belief that sport can contribute to peace and to the harmonious development of humankind,” President Bach said. “As the world sets out on a new era of development, we are truly honoured to continue being a committed partner for development with the United Nations to make the world a better place through sport.
They trust Espanyol to take advantage of the fluid relationship that exists with him Benfica, since without going any further a year ago they cited a loan in Cornellà Ferreyra Y Alpha Semedo, to convince the Eagles, which however delay the operation in the absence of a substitute for From Thomas, that although he does not play he can act as a wild card.The Madrid attacker it is an old yearning of Espanyol, which already in summer of 2017 he considered his assignment, as I recognized in AS last December 7 who was then a parakeet sports director, Jordi Lardín. Thomas already lived in a similar position to the blue and white with Rayo Vallecano last season, in which his 14 goals however were not enough to achieve permanence. If the fight against the clock is crucial in any market window, especially in winter, which only lasts a month, the urgencies of Espanyol claim immediate signings. “Any incorporation we want to make sooner“admitted the director of professional football, Francisco Joaquín Pérez Rufete, Last monday. And that speed can materialize in a first reinforcement, which is named Raúl de Tomás.Take the Spanish weeks supporting Benfica for the transfer of the forward as a priority to add gunpowder to a equipment who has only been able to score 12 goals in 18 days, with spearheads like Facundo Ferreyra and Jonathan Calleri, They have only been able to score one target each. If for the parakeet club it is a necessity to attract goal, for From Thomas it seems providential a Changes of winds, since, after its transfer from Real Madrid to the Lisbon entity last summer for 20 million, has just entered the plans of coach Bruno Lage: in the League Us has disputed 467 minutes without much.
The other two casualties of the call were fully sung: Arthur Melo and Ousmane Dembélé stay in Barcelona to continue their recovery.The complete list of players that are part of the Barcelona expedition traveling to Saudi Arabia is as follows: Net, Semedo, Sergi Roberto, Wagué, Pique, Lenglet, Umtiti, Todibo, Sunrise, Junior, Sergio Busquets, Rakitic, From Jong, Vidal, Griezmann, Messi, Suarez, Perez, Fati, Pain, You have, Riqui Puig, Araujo Y Collado. Ernesto Valverde takes the Spanish Super Cup very seriously. The coach from Blaugrana took all his available players, a total of 19, if he joined the two strikers of the subsidiary with the dynamics of the first team, Carles Pérez and Ansu Fati, who joined five of the subsidiary, until completing an integrated list for a total of 24 players. Among the Barcelona B players called up to the ranks, the presence of midfielder Riqui Puig stands out with his own light, a player who by the end of the season can have an important weight in the first team, especially after the transfer of Carles Aleñá to Betis. The other youth players who are part of the expedition are the goalkeepers Iñaki Peña and Arnau Tenas, the defender Ronald Araujo and the forward Alex Collado.Finally the German goalkeeper Marc André Ter Stegen did not enter the call to play the Spanish Super Cup, so the coach Blaugrana decided to take two goalkeepers from the quarry, Peña and Tenas, to accompany the Brazilian goalkeeper Neto. Valverde himself already announced that he saw Ter Stegen’s presence very complicated, so the absence of the goalkeeper was not a surprise. And the goal is following since December 30 a therapy with growth factors to regenerate the patellar tendon of his right knee that has long been preventing him from exercising at full capacity.
The French forward responded on Instagram to the PSG ultras: “Fear of winning? Never”. A response that did not sit well with the Paris fans, tired of seeing his team lose in the round of 16 of the European Cup. Mbappé’s relationship with the prince’s park stands has cooled in the last year, a reality that yesterday filled the cover of L’Equipe: “In a state of alert,” the newspaper headlined, which also pointed to its first page: “The best scorer of the season lives an idyllic relationship with part of the stands.” He arrived in 2017 as one of the emerging stars of world football, but over the years, he has not reaped the love that others have achieved, such asVerratti or Cavani. It happened during the PSG-Bordeaux played on February 23 in Paris. A banner in the Park of the Princes said “Fear of winning”, in relation to the attitude of the PSG squad in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Borussia Dortmund, a duel in which the Germans imposed themselves by 2-1. That encounter left quite a lot of negative protagonists on the part of the Gallic team, and one was Mbappé. The elimination in the round of 16 against Manchester United last season was the beginning of everything. Mbappé was one of those indicated for failing several clear occasions and questioned his commitment in the important matches. Then his clashes with Tuchel would come for being replaced against Montpellier or Nantes, an attitude that did not like a hobby characterized by not wanting players who feel more important than the club. Neymar’s clashes with the PSG ultras in the past are good proof of that.A situation that benefits Madrid, aware that it needs the PSG to open to negotiate to fulfill the dream of the white fans. At the moment, Mbappé fulfills its role: it has refused to sign a renewal and its current contract ends in 2022.
* Data updated as of March 21, 2020 The planning of the next season of Seville will be marked again, one more summer, by the players who did not enter Lopetegui’s plans almost a year ago and who have far from earned their return to Nervión. In fact, of the eleven players that Sevilla transferred to other clubs between the summer and winter markets, in which some even had to change clubs, only Carlos Fernandez It has been revalued and has shown a place in the squad next year.Carlos Fernández’s performance in Granada is the exception of Sevilla’s loan. The youth squad has even knocked on the national team’s doors and in the unlikely event that he was not available in Nervión, he could at least leave a juicy transfer in the coffers of the club. Is he opposite case to players like Kjaer, Arana or Amadou, forced to change their destination in winter for the little role they had in their first assignments. Arana worries less since his transfer to Atlético Mineiro, after failing in Atalanta, concludes in 2021. Kjaer also left Atalanta in January heading for a Milan that has a purchase option on him. Amadou, the first signing of the 18-19 season, failed at Norwich and ended up in a Leganes, in which he has only played one game. Leganés in fact has been one of the clubs that has taken Sevilla out of the most problems this year, since the loan of Amadou It was the fourth that came from Nervión after Juan Soriano, Roque Mesa and Bryan Gil. The goalkeeper has not managed to unseat Cuéllar despite the injuries of his rival in the position, Roque Mesa has not come close to the level that made Sevilla bet on him while Bryan Gil is acting repellant. By age and projection, the situation of the latter is not a problem for Sevilla.Aleix Vidal in Alavés and Gnagnon in Rennes have not been short of minutes, although they have not shown to be at the level required to belong to a squad that fights for the Champions League. Sergio Rico, despite his repeated substitutions, does have options to stay at PSG but the French will want to lower the purchase option that Sevilla put on his loan. And finally, Corchia continues to extend at Espanyol his ordeal of knee injuries, which has prevented him from playing since the end of November.The balance is clear: Sevilla gave up eleven players, ten will return in the summer, unless one of the purchase options on them is exercised, and only one has used the season to knock on the door of the club that owns its federal rights. Monchi already affirmed last summer that his planning had lacked things because he had not been able to get economic performance from the players that were not available. The problem of a year ago aims to become a problem in a few months. LaLiga Santander
That announcement also caused the local federation of Stockholm suspended the start of the amateur football season, scheduled for this Friday, after Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven called himself “irresponsible” and “unnecessary” on Wednesday.The start of the Swedish professional soccer leagues was scheduled for the first weekend of April, but it has been initially postponed due to the coronavirus until the end of May or the beginning of June, although no date has been set yet.Unlike other European countries, in Sweden a softer strategy has been chosen, It is based on reporting some general recommendations to isolate risk groups and appeal to individual responsibility, although some restrictive measures have been progressively introducedIn this Nordic country Institutes and Universities have been closeds (not schools or kindergartens) and it is recommended that there are no concentrations of more than 50 people, although they are kept open, for example, bars and restaurants, with some restrictions.Sweden, with a population of just over 10 million, has registered 12,540 coronavirus cases and 1,333 deaths so far, the highest figures in the Nordic countries, both total and in proportion. Various men’s and women’s friendly soccer matches professional that they were going to play this weekend no public in Sweden They were suspended this Thursday after the health authorities of this country recommended that they not gamble for the coronavirus pandemic.Four Stockholm women’s teams They announced last week the dispute from this Saturday and until May 24 of a double-round tournament, and men’s teams such as AIK scheduled later friendlies for this weekend after the authorities assured that there was no problem.But the Public Health Agency updated its recommendations this Thursday and advocated that no games be played in the senior category, although he considers it correct that the teams continue training and that there are matches in lower categories.“We confirm that a distinction is made between, on the one hand, children’s and youth soccer and, on the other, senior, and with the new clarification from the authorities, it is clear that no senior, competitive or friendly match can be played,” said Thursday in a statement the Swedish Football Federation.
