first_imgThe leading goal scorers in the group phase take on Asia’s last remaining representatives as Belgium meet Japan in the final 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia match to be hosted at Rostov Arena today.The Red Devils are aiming to reach their third World Cup quarter-final (after Mexico 1986 and Brazil 2014) and equal their world finals record of four consecutive wins, set four years ago. Their unbeaten 22-match run – the longest in Belgium’s history – reflects the quality of a hugely talented side.Japan advanced from the group phase on fair play points and are intent on winning a last-16 tie for the first time ever. They have the experience to do just that: Eiji Kawashima, Makoto Hasebe, Yuto Nagatomo and Shinji Okazaki are each set to play their 11th world finals matches, a national record. Along with Keizuke Honda, they will be looking to make up for the defeat to Paraguay at South Africa 2010, the last time that the Japanese featured in the knockout rounds. Roberto Martinez left most of his first-choice players on the bench for the England match so they could rest and avoid suspensions. Even with a weakened side, the Belgians still recorded a fine win that buoyed morale even further and has put some pressure on the squad’s habitual starters. The Red Devils are expected to play a dynamic, offensive game against the Japanese. Should the Asians adopt the same mindset, it should make for an open, entertaining game.Japan used a 4-4-2 formation in their last group match against Poland and lost 1-0. Coach Akira Nishino is likely to revert to the 4-2-3-1 system he deployed in the win over Colombia and the draw with Senegal. Attacking midfielders Genki Haraguchi, Shinji Kagawa and Takashi Inui will have important roles to play. The Japanese will look to attack down the flanks and their chances of success will hinge on how well they can supply Gaku Shibasaki.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

first_imgJust a game removed from their clash with the Kansas Jayhawks and their dominant scoring forward Carolyn Davis, the Wisconsin Badgers will once again face an elite scorer Sunday.When Wisconsin (4-6) welcomes Drake (8-1) to the Kohl Center, the Badgers will have to try to handle senior forward Rachael Hackbarth, the Bulldogs’ double-double machine.It will be something of a homecoming for Hackbarth, as the senior forward played high school ball in Wisconsin. A native of Colgate, Hackbarth played for Wisconsin Lutheran where she was a four-time letter winner and set the school record by shooting 69.8 percent from the floor as a senior.The senior has continued her success at the next level, as the Wisconsin native averages 17.3 points and 9.8 rebounds per game this season. Through six games the forward has already compiled an impressive three double-doubles. The senior also knows how to get to the line, as Hackbarth has almost triple the amount of free throw attempts as everyone else on the team.If Wisconsin hopes to control the game against the Bulldogs, the team will need to focus on controlling the boards. Against St. Louis last week, Wisconsin was outrebounded 45-33 and gave up 21 offensive rebounds. With the Badgers just barely out-rebounding their opponents on average, the team will have to tighten up and keep a body on Hackbarth the entire night under the rim.Look for Wisconsin sophomore forward Cassie Rochel or senior forward Anya Covington to match up with Hackbarth down low all night, although Wisconsin head coach Bobbie Kelsey may have the athletic Taylor Wurtz guard the Drake star.Offensively, the Badgers have a double-double threat of their own. Wurtz has continued to shine in the new Wisconsin offense, as the junior from Brandon, Wis., currently averages 16.7 points and 9 rebounds per game. When the offense is running efficiently, Taylor gets open looks and open threes. The junior is currently shooting 40.3 percent from beyond the arc, good for second best on the team. Even if the Badgers’ offense should sputter, Wurtz will need to continue her offensive dominance and finishing touch around the basket to keep the Wisconsin machine running on the offensive end.Whether Drake will bring full court pressure or not remains to be seen, but it may not matter. Wisconsin, after starting the season by committing a combined 68 turnovers in the first three games, has largely brought down the statistic. Against relaxed pressure and minimal full court pressure, the Badgers committed their lowest total turnover margin of the season against the Billikens, turning the ball over only 12 times in the duration of the contest.“We just have to keep working on everything each day,” Rochel said. “We have gotten better on our turnovers but we continue to work on it in practice as well as boxing out. Each aspect as it pops up in a game we work on; you just have to keep practicing hard until you correct that.”Kelsey has made sure to tidy up aspects of Wisconsin’s ball movement.“I think people understand it’s important to value the ball,” Kelsey said. “We watch it. They see what they’re doing and how they’re playing. We only pick it up when we have someone to pass too. We’ve eliminated a lot of unnecessary dribbling and now on passes we hold and look for passes. Also I think that they’re making sure the person is open before they throw it. Maybe they’ll set more screens to shorten the pass, a lot of things contribute to it but those are some main points.”Wisconsin has still struggled to find a complete victory this season. In some games, the Badgers have shot extremely well, as they showed in the second half of the Billkens game last week. In other games, the Badgers have shot well but been beaten badly on the boards.Whatever may happen Sunday, the Badgers are just looking to find that sustained effort where all aspects of the offensive and defensive systems are working correctly and efficiently.“We’re almost there,” sophomore Morgan Paige said. “We show glimpses in games of our potential and go through minute stretches where everything is clicking but then all the sudden a wheel falls off. We just have to focus in on doing the little things. When we do the fundamentals we usually have a four minute spread that looks very good. If we can maintain focus and discipline we should be good go going through this season.”last_img read more

first_imgChelsea owner Roman Abramovich is ready to ­perform a major U-turn and re-open contract talks with Frank Lampard, writes the Sunday People.Sunday People Sport can reveal the Blues are close to announcing the£15million signing of Spain Under-21 international midfielder Isco but they are open to the idea of long-serving Lampard staying.After telling the club legend that he could leave, Stamford Bridge sources now insist they want to talk about a new deal.Lampard’s representatives have yet to hear from Chelsea, but the player is keen to stay in the hope of persuading the club to offer him a two-year agreement. Lampard scored a penalty in Chelsea’s 5-1 FA Cup demolition of Southampton yesterday to go level with Kerry Dixon on 193 goals for Blues.He is now just 10 goals shy of breaking Bobby Tambling’s club record of 202 – a mark Lampard is desperate to overhaul.Interim Blues boss Benitez said: “Frank is a good pro, he is doing well, he is under contract, and he is doing fine. I know they have conversations (over his contract) sometimes but the main thing for me as coach is to bring the best out of him.” Manchester United are considering a swoop for Lampard if the Blues fail to tie him up to an extension – and QPR are willing to offer Lamps a two-and-a-half year deal.But whatever happens to Lampard, Malaga starlet Isco is bound for Stamford Bridge.The Spanish club need to bring in significant sums of money in January to pay a huge tax bill.It is not yet clear whether Isco will move to west London this month or remain at Malaga for the rest of the season, possibly on a loan-back deal. The 20-year-old is an attacking midfielder who has scored six times for Malaga this season.last_img read more

first_imgUSA players celebrate with number 15 Megan Rapinoe after she scored in the 2-1 win over hosts France in the World Cup quarter-finalParis, France | AFP |  Megan Rapinoe stole the headlines again as her brace took the United States through to the semi-finals of the women’s World Cup on Friday, the holders beating France 2-1 in Paris to puncture the hopes of the host nation.Rapinoe’s free-kick five minutes into this quarter-final evaded a sea of bodies in the box on its way into the net to stun the home crowd at the Parc des Princes.The USA then soaked up pressure before delivering the knockout blow midway through the second half when Rapinoe turned in Tobin Heath’s centre, although Wendie Renard pulled a goal back late on for France to set up a tense finish.Jill Ellis’s team held on and they go through to a semi-final against England in Lyon next Tuesday as they seek to retain their crown and win a fourth World Cup in eight editions.“This is so special to beat the host nation in the Parc des Princes. You can’t ask for any more than this,” said Rapinoe.The pink-haired Rapinoe has been crucial on the field in this run, while dominating headlines off it thanks to her spat with President Donald Trump over her refusal to attend any post-tournament reception at the White House.The 33-year-old had already scored twice in the win over Spain in the last round. Here, she took her tally for the tournament to five goals on the occasion of her 157th cap.– French regrets –Meanwhile, France will leave their own tournament with more than a few regrets.Ellis praised the hosts, saying: “That’s a fantastic team we played tonight, and that is the most intense match I have ever been a part of.”Nevertheless, that will be scant consolation for them. They were the only team to defeat the USA in the two years leading up to the World Cup and they did not really do themselves justice here before an expectant crowd.Coach Corinne Diacre had been set the target of going all the way to the final on home soil, yet that always looked a tall order from the moment the draw was made last December and they were set on a quarter-final collision course with the best team in the world. “It’s a failure in a footballing sense, we can’t hide from that. We are far from fulfilling our objective,” said Diacre.“I hope we at least won people’s hearts tonight and since the start of the tournament.”Only once before had they even made it to the semi-finals, and for the second World Cup running their adventure ends in the last eight, the same stage at which they went out of the 2016 Olympics and the last three European Championships.Having started this tournament with a first-half blitz against South Korea in the opening game, Les Bleues never really reached the same heights again.The country’s leading sports daily L’Equipe had called this “the challenge of a lifetime”, and in that context conceding the opening goal so early on a sweltering Parisian evening was a disaster.Alex Morgan was fouled by Griedge Mbock outside the area to the USA left, and Rapinoe’s low delivery went in without taking a touch, passing through the legs of France skipper Amandine Henry en route.The home side then had lots of the ball but rarely really troubled USA goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher.Their opponents had not created much either, although they made their intent clear right at the start of the second half as a Samantha Mewis strike drew a fine save from Sarah Bouhaddi, who then did well to keep out Heath’s follow-up.The second goal arrived in the 65th minute, with Morgan and Heath combining down the right before the latter’s ball across goal was turned in by Rapinoe.France did not give up and set up a frenzied finale as they reduced the deficit nine minutes from time, Renard evading her marker to head in Gaetane Thiney’s flighted free-kick for her fourth goal of the tournament. But the USA saw out the victory.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Washington State Department of TransportationThe falling leaves and colder weather can mean only one thing – snow and ice are just around the corner. With the changing seasons, now is the perfect time for travelers to shift their focus towards winter driving.The Washington State Department of Transportation urges all travelers to start preparing themselves and their vehicles well before the threat of snow and ice kicks into high gear. Drivers can check out WSDOT’s winter driving web page for tips and information. WSDOT also asks travelers to always “know before you go” and get the most up-to-date roadway information before heading out.“Our crews are ready for winter and work hard to keep roads clear of snow and ice,” said WSDOT Maintenance Operations Manager James Morin. “But we also need the public’s help in being prepared for winter weather. Most of the pass closures we see are due to spin outs or crashes from a vehicle traveling too fast or not having proper winter driving equipment.”To check conditions and prepare for adverse weather:Download the WSDOT mobile app.Follow WSDOT’s regional and pass accounts on Twitter, the agency’s Facebooksite and online travel alerts.Sign upfor email and/or text updates about road conditions – including Snoqualmie Pass delay text alerts.Download, print and carry the WSDOT Winter Driving Guide(pdf 1.83 mb).Get your vehicle ready (pdf 2 mb) and plan extra time to cross all mountain passes, including heavily traveled routes such as Snoqualmie Pass, Stevens Pass and White Pass.Carry chains and know current traction and chain requirementsfor mountain passes, which are also available on highway-advisory signs and highway-advisory radio and by calling 511.Preset your radio to 530 AM and 1610 AM for WSDOT’s traffic-information stations.Alternatives to ChainsSome vehicle manufacturers recommend against the use of tire chains for certain models – but that doesn’t exempt travelers from state laws about extra traction devices. The Washington State Patrol provides a list of approved, alternative-traction devices (pdf 133 kb) that meet state chains and traction tires requirements. All travelers are reminded to carry chains whenever crossing mountain passes to be prepared for changing weather conditions and potentially avoid a costly ticket. Failure to obey a tire chains sign can mean a ticket of up to $500. Special chain enforcement patrols will be keeping an eye on mountain passes this winter.Studded TiresBy law, studded tires are legal for use in Washington state only from Nov. 1 through March 31. This applies to all vehicles in Washington, even those traveling from other statesWSDOT estimates studded tires cause between $20 million and $29 million in pavement damage to state-owned asphalt and concrete roadways each year. Motorists are encouraged to visit a tire dealer to learn more about stud-free, winter tread traction tires. These type of tires are different than all-season tires, are legal year-round and do not cause the same roadway damage as studded tires. More information about studded-tire restrictions and requirements can be found in the FAQ on the WSP website.Featured photo credit: Jennlvs2smilelast_img read more

first_img“That’s the number one for our special projects,” she said.The wallpaper and ceiling upgrades will cost an estimated $6,800 each. Thegroup will also replace four antique cane chairs at Longstreet with hand-wovenseats and also replace some of the heirloom fruit trees at the property. In Colts Neck, the new Sensory Lions’ Den project was recently completed in Dorbrook Park’s Challenger Area, thanks to the Friends of the Monmouth County Park System and the Colts Neck Lions Club. It is designed for people of all abilities, but especially for the visually impaired. In 2020, the group will pay off an additional $2,100 for the playground for additional site work that was not included in the original plan, Wojciechowski said, like extra surfacing areas. “It really looks nice,” she said Dec. 16. MONMOUTH COUNTY – The Friends of the Monmouth County Park System have a lot on their to-do list in 2020. Longstreet Farm, Holmdel Park Photo courtesy MCPS Looking back on 2019, Wojciechowski said it was a very goodyear for the organization, which offers several levels of memberships, startingat $25 for individuals, $50 for families and $250 for corporations. They wereable to raise $281,751 through a membership drive, donations and fundraisingefforts in 2019. “We really had a good year,” she said. Purchasing new fabrics to help repair and createnew historic clothing, $500.Expand social media advertising for park system programsand events, $6,000.Employee training, registration and travel,$10,190.Coastal Activity Center special events, fieldtrips and after-school scholarships for program fees and field trips, $4,550.Therapeutic recreation expenses including asemi-formal, weather presentation, camp scholarships and tickets and entry feesfor inclusion coaches, $3,100.Volunteer Services cards, National Trails Daylunch, gardening tools and holiday reception costs, $2,550. This article originally appeared in the Jan. 9, 2020 print edition of The Two River Times. In a presentation at the Dec. 16 Monmouth County Board of Recreation Commissioners meeting, the Friends charitable organization laid out plans to tackle various projects to fund park system enhancements. One they are particularly excited about is the Nature on theMove project. Nature on the Move will be a $12,000 project to bring crittersto various events in the county, said Maria Wojciechowski, executive directorof the Friends group. Also on the to-do list are essential upgrades to the historicLongstreet Farmhouse in Holmdel. According to Wojciechowski, the farmhouse needsceiling repairs and new wallpaper. The wallpaper work was supposed to be donein 2019, but when they visited the site to replace it, they discovered that theplaster from the ceiling was starting to fall. The park system will purchase a van and the Friends willoutfit it with flat-screen TVs, built-in cabinets and cooling systems toprotect the reptiles and insects on hot days. The Friends will be financing several other events, programs, scholarships and more throughout the year. Here are just a few of the 2020 expenses: “The trees are starting to age out of there, so the parksystem is trying to start to rotate some stock so they don’t all go out at thesame time,” she said. Additionally, cherry trees will be replaced at Holmdel Park.Wojciechowski said she has been told that Monmouth County is home to thesecond-largest display of cherry blossoms in the state of New Jersey. One oftheir goals for 2020 is to replace three cherry trees donated by the Stevensonfamily in town, to maintain the site. The Friends and the park system have various fundraising events throughout the year, but the Friends’ “biggest and newest” event was a wine and craft beer tasting Sept. 19 at Tatum Park. The group raised over $20,000 there, Wojciechowski said. “It really is a lot of fun and my board really works so hard on this. They really put so much effort into it. It really came together nicely,” she added. “It will be kind of like a bookmobile,” said Wojciechowski.“They will be able to take it out on the road to a school program or to afestival or a fair and open it up and have a mini environmental center therethat the naturalists will be able to use.” It will likely take about a year toget everything set up and running.last_img read more
