Evans ready to go – O’Neill

first_imgBanned Jonny Evans is set to make his return to football in Northern Ireland’s friendly against Scotland, according to boss Michael O’Neill. The Football Association suspended the 27-year-old Manchester United defender for six games and Newcastle’s Papiss Cisse for seven matches for a spitting incident during the Old Trafford side’s 1-0 win over the Magpies on March 4. Evans has served two matches but will get the chance to get the boots back on in the Vauxhall International challenge match at Hampden Park on Wednesday, March 25, before the crucial Euro Group F qualifier against Finland at Windsor Park the following Sunday. There was some surprise when Shane Ferguson was named in O’Neill’s 27-man squad. The Irishman was one of five Toon players who signed on loan for Rangers in the transfer window but he has yet to travel to Glasgow as he recovers from a knee injury. When informed of Ferguson’s inclusion, Gers interim-boss Stuart McCall said: “I find that amazing because he is registered to us but he’s not been here. “That has actually astounded me. From what I’ve been led to believe, we won’t see him at all this season.” However, O’Neill said: “Shane is injured at the moment so he’s probably an extreme doubt if I’m honest. “I had hoped he would be further along in his recovery. “He’s still at Newcastle United in terms of his rehab and that’s something I’ll have to decide on in the next two or three days whether he’s included or not. “I would have hoped he would have played for Rangers by this time. “He had a slight setback with his knee injury but in the next 24 to 48 hours I’ll have to decide whether it’s beneficial to include him.” Manchester United’s 19-year-old defender Paddy McNair is in line to make his senior debut. He was an unused substitute against Romania in November but with O’Neill set to rotate his squad in the first fixture, McNair can expect to add another landmark moment to his breakout season. Doncaster’s Luke McCullough is also included alongside veteran defenders Gareth McAuley, Aaron Hughes and Chris Baird, meaning Hull’s Alex Bruce again misses out. Brentford winger Stuart Dallas is another who may benefit from a run-out in Glasgow having returned to the squad. Dallas won his first and only cap against Wales in 2011’s Carling Nations Cup and withdrew from his previous call-up due to injury. Ferguson’s expected withdrawal could yet open the door for the absent Daniel Lafferty, who has been starved of first-team football at Burnley but has recently joined Rotherham on loan. Kyle Lafferty, who has three goals in four Euro 2016 qualifiers so far, leads the forward unit and will travel from Turkish outfit Caykur Rizespor. But there was no place for Martin Paterson, on loan with Major League Soccer franchise Orlando City. With regards the way he will approach the Scotland game, O’Neill said: “The priority is the Finland game, it’s as simple as that. “I’m not sure about experiment but it’s a time to look at one or two players who haven’t had the opportunity yet in the campaign and also players to get valuable game time.” Press Association O’Neill, speaking at the national stadium in Glasgow where he was helping to publicise the friendly against the Scots, revealed he has spoken to Evans and is more than confident the player is mentally attuned to play if required. He said: “Jonny hasn’t played international football for 18 months because of injury and he’s also currently serving a suspension. “He’ll welcome the opportunity to get some minutes given the importance of the (Finland) game on Sunday. “I spoke to him the day after the incident and after the decision as well. “He is fine and there will be no problems with that at all. “He is an excellent professional and he will be more than capable of coming and dealing with these games if he is asked to play. “He hasn’t played in the qualification for us yet, he’s been injured so it’s going to be great to have him back in the squad. “I’d have no concerns at all around his mental state in terms of being able to come into play at international level.” last_img read more

No friendships during test series – archer

first_img(BBC) – There will be “no friendships” between the West Indies players and England’s Jofra Archer during the sides’ upcoming Test series, says bowler Kemar Roach.Barbados-born bowler Archer, 25, played three times for West Indies Under-19s before opting to play for England.He played against West Indies at the 2019 World Cup but this summer’s series, starting on 8 July, would be the first time he will be facing them in Tests.“It is all about winning and playing hard cricket,” fellow Bajan, Roach, said.“Jofra has made his decision and is doing a fantastic job for his career.“There is no friendships with this series.”Archer has friends in the West Indies’ 30-man touring party, notably batsman Shai Hope and bowler Chemar Holder, and played alongside bowlers Alzarri Joseph and Preston McSween for West Indies Under-19s.Asked whether there would be extra words for Archer on the field during the Test series, Roach said: “We will see when that comes around. We will definitely see.”The three-match series will be played at bio-secure venues in Southampton and Manchester without spectators, something Roach said could help West Indies as the hosts will be without their usual vocal support.Roach expects the tourists to employ the same aggressive, hostile bowling methods used when his side beat England 2-1 in the Caribbean last year.“I don’t think our mode of attack will change much,” he said.“We saw [England’s batsmen] in the Caribbean and it is pretty fresh in our minds.“Once we get stuck into them we stand a great chance of beating England.”last_img read more

Government Has No Business Running Sport, Says Shaibu

first_imgPhilip Shaibu He stressed that sports is an industry that requires those with the know-how to run it for profit.“My Governor, (Hon. Godwin Obaseki) is an economist and knows that for Edo to reap the dividend in the sector, we need to create the right atmosphere that will allow players in it to succeed. That is what we have done with these beautiful sports facilities we have put in place to host the National Sports Festival later this month,” the deputy governor hinted.Given Edo State’s pedigree in sports along with Delta State in the old Bendel State, Shaibu admitted that the new industry to be created with these new sport facilities, “ will not only provide employment but will held to check social vices and give room for our athletes’ careers to flourish. We were the power-house of sports in country before Bendel State was split into Edo and Delta states. We still have talents.”Shaibu further said that ancillary industries that will spring up around these sports facilities will boost the economy of the state.“There are going to be all sorts of merchandising businesses around these sports facilities. Sportswear shops, restaurants and other businesses will be opened.”He hinted that because of the rebranding of Bendel Insurance FC, the state government made N26million from the sale of the home and away jerseys of the Benin Arsenal.“You can imagine what will happen after the National Sports Festival when all these shops around the sports facilities will be put into maximum use,” he said with optimism.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram With the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium refurbished along with other 17 sports facilities to host the 20th National Sports Festival later this month in Benin City, Edo State government is setting the pace for other states to emulate on how to create the enabling environment for sports to thrive.After conducting sports journalists on inspection of the facilities on Tuesday, Edo State Deputy Governor, Hon. Philip Shaibu insisted that government has no business running sports but to create the enabling environment for the sector to thrive as is done where sports is big business.“What we have done in Edo State with the total refurbishment of the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium and other sports facilities in the state is to create the enabling environment that will allow private partnership in sports business. Sports business is huge,” observed Shaibu.last_img read more

USC looks to shore up its offensive line for Cal

first_imgAt the first practice after USC’s loss to Stanford on Tuesday, the message was clear: It’s time to move on.USC coach Lane Kiffin expressed his team’s excitement for Saturday’s game against California, even joking that he wished it were baseball, so his team could have the opportunity to bounce back quicker.Blocking woes · Junior offensive tackle Kevin Graf (77), junior offensive guard John Martinez (59) and the rest of USC’s offensive line allowed senior quarterback Matt Barkley (7) to be sacked four times during Saturday’s loss. – Chris Pham | Daily Trojan“Good to be back out on the field I think for everybody, for our coaches, for our players,” Kiffin said. “Get rid of last week like we’ve talked about. We’re moving forward, but it’s always good to get the pads on and get back here and get to football.”The Trojan coach is addressing several problems he identified on game film — most notably, offensive line play.He has officially opened up sophomore Aundrey Walker’s starting left tackle position for competition. Over the next two days, Walker and freshman Max Tuerk will vie for the starting nod to protect senior quarterback Matt Barkley’s blindside.Kiffin also expounded upon his criteria for making the decision.“Finish, great effort,” Kiffin said. “We won’t tolerate lack of great effort. I think Aundrey’s going to respond well to this.”—During the loss to Stanford, freshman center Cyrus Hobbi, as expected with a nuanced position, experienced some growing pains. On one sack in the second half, Hobbi snapped the ball on the wrong snap count, leading to a flood of Stanford players in the backfield.Still, after the game, Kiffin made sure to applaud his effort.“Hang in there,” said Kiffin to Hobbi postgame. “[I’m] proud of the way that [you] competed, and we’re behind [you].”According to Kiffin, senior center Abe Markowitz, who was No. 2 on the depth chart before Stanford, is healthy and available to play this week. If Holmes is unavailable to play against California, Markowitz will assume the starting center position over Hobbi.—Kiffin also insisted that California’s 1-2 record belies a talented and physical team.“They’re [a] very talented team in general in all three phases. … Some guys on defense that give you some issues in the front,” Kiffin said. “There’s some pretty dominant players in there that give people a lot of issues last year, including us at times — another complicated defense.”—Though California quarterback Zach Maynard struggled against USC last season, Kiffin has seen growth from the lefty on recent game film.“That was the best I’ve seen from him on film,” said Kiffin of Maynard’s performance against Ohio State last weekend. “He played really well in a tough game. I think you can tell that he’s improved. ”last_img read more

Jamaican American DJ, Walshy Fire performs at this week’s carnival festivities…

first_imgThis week, Miami-bred, Jamaican American DJ, record producer, Leighton Walsh, otherwise known as Walshy Fire, has graced stages during Trinidad Carnival festivities at events held on February 24, 25 and 26. Walsh will also be performing this weekend during Brazil’s Rio Carnival on March 2 and 4. His hectic performance schedule has become a regular lifestyle for the globe-trotting DJ/producer, who is a part of the award winning group, Major Lazer, and also boasts a successful solo career. Speaking to CNW about Trinidad Carnival, Walsh shared, “Trinidad stands out because it’s so inclusive. It’s the 3rd or 4th biggest carnival in the world, I believe, with only Brazil, Colombia and maybe Mardi Gras being bigger. But, Trinidad Carnival is one of the most inclusive. You can show up on the day of the event to participate, and they’ll welcome you. Some of the other carnivals where they’ve been practicing for three or six months, they’re really just focused on winning.”Considered a Caribbean Ambassador, Walsh has been a fixture during carnival season throughout the Caribbean region for many years. He is also a regular performer/DJ at carnivals in the diaspora, such as Miami and Toronto carnivals. Beyond just entertaining Caribbean folks, Walsh has been a headliner at the full spectrum of other major carnivals across the globe, such as Mardi Gras. Walsh credits growing up in Miami for his ability to connect with a wide audience through his music. “Miami’s diversity is linked to the region that I consider myself responsible for, which is the Caribbean, and also South America and Central America. Miami has helped me be able to speak to a diverse group of people, because I grew up in diverse culture,” he says.The 36-year-old, self-proclaimed Miami Prime Minister was born in Kingston, Jamaica, and grew up in Miami’s Carol City. He attended North Miami Beach High School, and later went on to study for degrees at Clark Atlanta University and Florida A&M University. Most often referred to just as “Walshy”, Walsh is also the brother of famed West Indian cricketer, Courtney Walsh.  Walsh’s career began to rise in 2004 when he started working and touring with the lauded Jamaican American sound system, Black Chiney. However, it was in 2012 that Walsh stepped into the role of MC of internationally acclaimed electronic dance group, Major Lazer. The group tours extensively across the globe, and has worked with a plethora of the world’s biggest acts, such as Sean Paul, Pharrell Williams, and Snoop Dogg. Known for his prowess in mixing genres with reggae and dancehall rhythms, Walshy’s recent groundbreaking hit is the production of “Toast” by new Jamaican artist, Koffee, which has seen unprecedented success in Jamaica and around the world. The tune aptly represents the positive messages and rootsy melodies Walshy creates, against a new, globally enhanced, yet authentic, reggae sound.  In 2015, Walsh launched independent label Walshy Fire Presents, where he aims to expand Jamaica’s sound system culture through music production, live events and other projects. Walsh hosts weekly reggae and dancehall-heavy, carnival-style revel events called Rum & Bass, every Tuesday night at Coyo Taco in Miami. He also tours extensively as a solo DJ act, and has held residencies at some of Miami’s most popular nightclubs.last_img read more
