Lure Ighalo back into Super Eagles, Esin tells Rohr

first_img “Ighalo’s return to the Eagles will help to boost the confidence level of younger strikers in the team and this will help us going forward. “Samuel Chukwueze, Victor Osimhen, and others would benefit from his experience if the coach brings him back. “We should learn to tap from the resources we have in our hands. Ighalo is one of the best strikers we have today, Rohr should convince him to return. “How can Nigeria have a player in Manchester United and he is not in the national team? Playing in an elite team like Manchester United alone is an experience on its own. “Do we want to waste all that? It is wrong. He needs to share his experience with young strikers in the team. That is how a team grows. This is where the coach needs to come all out and encourage him to help the team with his experience.” read also:Man Utd fans hammer  Solskjaer for not starting Ighalo against Chelsea Before quitting the Super Eagles, Ighalo, who made his debut against Uganda in 2015, scored 16 goals in 35 appearances for the three-time African champions. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Former Nigeria player, Etim Esin, has urged the Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, to try and lure  Manchester United loanee striker, Odion Ighalo to end his international retirement and return to the national team. Ighalo retired from international duty after helping the West Africans finish third at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, where he emerged as the competition’s top scorer. The striker has continued his impressive performances with the Old Trafford outfit since joining the side in January from Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua. The forward’s eye-catching performances recently earned him a loan extension with the Red Devils until January 2021. Esin, who could not fathom why Ighalo, one of the best Nigeria players, is not currently in the national team, feels the forward should be encouraged to return to the Super Eagles. He believes the 31-year-old’s experience will rub off on the young players in the team like Lille’s Victor Osimhen and Villarreal’s winger Samuel Chukwueze. “I think this is a job for the coach [Gernot Rohr], he’s the one in charge and he should try and convince Ighalo to rescind his decision on retirement from the national team,” stated on  the  goal.com website.Advertisementcenter_img Loading…last_img read more

Wellington girls lose to Mulvane in sub-state championship game 46-41

first_imgMulvane 46 Wellington 41Wellington 11 6 11 13— 41Mulvane 12 10 9 15 — 46Wellington: French 3, Snipes 18, Whaley 4, McComb 14, Ledesma 2. Total 9 (4) 11-20 41. Mulvane: Melick 9, Donaldson 14, Burkhart 20, Chambers 1, Endres 2. Total 8 (4) 18-26 46. by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — In the end it was the kind of game that makes you think back and ask, “if only?” The Wellington girls fell one game short of the state tournament with a 46-41 loss to Mulvane in the sub-state championship in Rose Hill.This was Mulvane’s year with four senior girls who were dominating in middle school and pretty much carried the program for four seasons in high school. Eric Adam’s troops were hoping to crash the party.It almost did, had it not been for a cold patch down the stretch.It most certainly was a game much different than the first two contests. The underdog Dukes nearly pulled off an upset. Wellington ends its season at 13-9. The Crusaders will lose five seniors, including leading scorer Carlie McComb. But Wellington will have plenty of returning talent for the seasons ahead.“We played so hard tonight,” Adams said. “It was such an good all-out effort by our kids.”Wellington had lost to Mulvane 55-40 in the Mulvane Tournament and 61-38 on the road again. But Saturday was a different story.Using a point zone and triangle defense for most of the game, the Crusaders kept the normally hot-shooting Wildcats at bay.Wellington matched Mulvane with four three-pointers and had nine deuces to Mulvane’s eight from the field.But the one place Wellington could not stop the Wildcats was at the free throw line. Mulvane shot 18 of 26 including 8 of 10 in the fourth quarter. Wellington was 11 of 20 for the game, including a sub-par 5 of 11 in the first half. That was your ball game.“It is no secret we struggle at the line,” Adams said. “We shoot em and shoot em in practice and then in the game we struggle. It’s a mental thing.”Wellington opened the game with a McComb 3-pointer, and that helped Wellington sustain the lead for most of the first quarter. Mulvane hit a trey before the first quarter buzzer to take the lead.The key moments in the game were near the waning moments of both halves, when Mulvane had a significant scoring spurt. The Wildcats would take a 22-17 lead at the half. A killer 3-pointer by Mireia Salvador at the buzzer would bounce up to the top of the backboard and fall through. But it was nullified because it hit the top of the backboard.In the third quarter, Wellington would narrow the margin to one several times but could not regain the lead. At the end of three it was 31-28 Mulvane.In the fourth, Wellington was cold on five consecutive possessions including missing two layups. Nevertheless, Wellington was able to tie it midway through the quarter. But Mulvane would score the next seven points and take a 40-33 lead with one minute to play. The Dukes would get it down to four, before losing in the end.Lauryn Snipes led Wellington with 18 points. McComb had 14. Senior Kelsey Whaley had 4, and senior Jaedyn Ledesma had 2. Holly Wright and Avery Lewellen will graduate this year as well. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

Steelers Will Gay promoting domestic violence app

first_imgPittsburgh Steelers’ William Gay (22) waves to loyal fans following game against the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte, N.C., Sunday, Sept. 21, 2014. The Steelers won 37-19. (AP Photo/Bob Leverone)PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback William Gay is working with a women’s shelter to promote the national debut of a mobile app designed to help victims of domestic violence.The “RUSafe” app has been available in Pittsburgh for several months and will be made available nationally on iPhones and Androids beginning Nov. 1. The free app, designed by the Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh, gives users a brief questionnaire and uses GPS technology to help the user locate the nearest domestic violence hotline or 911.The app has already been used 1,000 times and helped more than 20 victims in Pittsburgh get the help they need.Gay has become a leading advocate for domestic violence victims in recent years. His mother, Carolyn Hall, was killed by her husband when Gay was a child.“She didn’t have a chance or someone to help her or a hotline to call,” Gay said.Gay praised the NFL for taking a harsher stance on domestic violence following Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice’s indefinite suspension for hitting Janay Palmer during an incident at an Atlantic City, New Jersey casino in February.“I’m just glad we’re talking about it from the top of the league to the bottom,” he said. “Our goal is always to try to broaden or get the awareness out everywhere.”Gay filmed a series of public service announcements in conjunction with the launch and is hopeful his experience will help others escape abusive relationships.“Me talking about it, it helped me grow as a man,” he said. “That’s just my mom living on. Anything to keep her voice alive, I’m going to do.”___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img read more

GPSU calls on Govt to resume talks for 2016 pay hike

first_imgThe Guyana Government has been formally notified of the Guyana Public Service Union’s (GPSU) rejection of its one to 10 per cent differential approach to increases for public servants and the Union.GPSU has also formally invited the Government through its negotiating team to resume negotiations “within the spirit of what is just, consistent with its 2015 manifesto commitment and with due respect for the Union’s representation in pursuit of a living wage being paid as the basic pay for an employee of the Guyana public service.”The GPSU, in releasing its missive to Government, said, “it is the intention of the Union to ensure that its members continue to be well-informed regarding the progress of the negotiations through the media and by way of other channels of communication available to the Union.It is the firm intention of the GPSU to continue to take the negotiations in a direction that results in an outcome that allows for public servants to attain the goal of a living wage and adequate related allowances and conditions of service,” the Union stated.Government Chief negotiator, Reginald Brotherson, the Permanent Secretary, of the Ministry of the Presidency, was written to by GPSU’s acting General Secretary, Kempton Alexander, with the missive copied to President David Granger, Minister of State Joseph Harmon and Finance Minister Winston Jordan.GPSU in its letter to Government said the Union “hereby informs you that at its General Council Meeting held on September 2, 2016, a unanimous decision was taken to reject the offer of 10 per cent – one per cent differentiated approach proposed by the Government of Guyana.”The GPSU has since called on Government to resume negotiations.GPSU President Patrick Yarde had over the weekend cautioned Government to return to the bargaining table, saying it should be guided by history, including the infamous 1999 public servants strike which lasted for 57 days and had to be resolved through arbitration.Yarde during the recent meeting of the GPSU’s General Council Meeting had cause to point out that more than $6.8 billion was set aside in the 2016 Budget to cater for salary increases for public servants – none of which was spent.He had also accused Government of horse-trading over its publicly stated position that it will go ahead and make an arbitrary award in face of the Union’s refusal of the differentiated 10 per cent to one per cent salary increases for public servants.Yarde has since also sought to remind the parties that form the coalition Government, that it had campaigned on a promise to pay public servants decent wages/salaries.“Rather than address workers’ wages/salaries and conditions of work, the Government instead opted to increase its own salaries by as much as 50 per cent,” Yarde said.Yarde, in his public missive over the weekend, said the outcome of any negotiation that is considered just, is one where the results are agreed upon by the parties involved.He said the GPSU rejected the wage/salary offer and for the Government to state that the position put forward to the Union is final; and it will go ahead and implement it even if the Union has not accepted same, is a breach of trust and can be described as evidence of bad faith negotiations.last_img read more

W’kshop on Economic reporting Opens Today

first_imgA training workshop to boost the financial and economic literacy of mid to upper level media practitioners in the banking and finance sector as well as staff of the Legislative Budget Office (LBO) kicks off today, Monday, March 20, 2017, at the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL).The exercise, which is part of CBL’s financial inclusion outreach program, will be conducted by the West African Institute for Financial and Economic Management (WAIFEM) in collaboration with the Central Bank of Liberia.WAIFEM, based in Lagos, Nigeria was established by five West African central banks including, the Central Banks of Liberia, Nigeria, Ghana, the Gambia and Sierra Leone, to help enhance the capacity building process of professionals from member countries.The 5-day workshop will offer a rare opportunity for focused capacity building for staff involved in reporting and analyzing developments in the economy and the financial sector in particular.The workshop will also provide insight on the importance of economic and financial information in planning and formulation of policies.The workshop is expected to increase the “economic quotient” of attendees towards promoting a greater public awareness of domestic and international economic and financial issues in the interest of a more enlightened public that will engender greater popular participation in national, economic and financial agenda.It can be recalled that in his meeting with media practitioners last year, the Executive Governor of the CBL, Milton A. Weeks, who is also the current Chairman of the Board of Governors of WAIFEM, committed to assisting in the provision of training on economic and financial sector reporting.The CBL subsequently decided to expand the workshop to include staff of the Legislative Budget Office (LBO) to afford them the opportunity to benefit from such training which is expected to assist the LBO in providing quality information to Legislators on economic and financial developments.The workshop is expected to provide participants with a practical overview and insight into economic and financial markets.It will update the knowledge and upgrade the skills of financial analysts in economic and financial policies with a strong emphasis on economic and financial analyses and performance monitoring.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
