Football News Brazil held to a draw by Panama in international football friendly

first_imgBrazil will next play Czech Republic in an international friendly.Panama are ranked 76 in the world in the FIFA rankings.Brazil are the five-time World Cup champions. highlights Porto: Brazil were held to a 1-1 draw against Panama in an international friendly played at Porto’s Dragao Stadium. AC Milan’s Lucas Paqueta claimed his first international goal for the five-time World Cup winners before captain Adolfo Machado responded for the side in 76th place in the world rankings. Injured Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar watched the game from the stands as he recovers from a fractured right foot. “The performance wasn’t brilliant but it wasn’t below par either,” coach Tite said.”When we go to the Copa America we will make more accurate choices to be more efficient.” The Selecao opened the scoring just after the half-hour mark. Midfielder Paqueta was on the end of a deep Casemiro cross to volley home at the back post.     Skipper Machado brought the teams level four minutes later. Erick Davis’ central free-kick found the centre-back near the penalty spot who lobbed his long-distance header over a stunned Ederson who appealed for offside.RELATED     Everton attacker Richarlison came close to bagging his side’s second as his effort smashed the crossbar five minutes after the break. Real Madrid’s Casemiro had two chances to win the game for Tite’s outfit with a header and a powerful shot with quarter of an hour remaining. Both teams made a wave of substitutions in the closing moments and Eder Militao went close with an injury-time header.     Next for Brazil is Tuesday’s friendly against the Czech Republic as they prepare to host this year’s Copa America which starts on June 14.center_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Moore returns from back injury to contribute as 5th-year senior guard for Colgate

first_imgColgate was only one game into the 2013-14 season when guard Pat Moore injured his back while lifting weights. And it wasn’t until December that he fully felt the effects of two herniated discs.During his time at home, even the simple actions of sitting and standing were difficult.“Just hard to walk around,” Moore said, “hard to move, hard to do pretty much anything.”He managed to play in eight more games after suffering the injury, but his experiences during Winter Break indicated that he couldn’t play in his current state. Two months later, he underwent surgery.After a lengthy rehabilitation period and a lot of paperwork lobbying for another year of eligibility, Moore, who needs 142 more points to reach the 1,000 mark, is now finishing out his career at Colgate (3-8) as a fifth-year senior and co-captain. And despite not being ready for the start of the season, he has seen significant playing time in the Raiders’ last three games.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMoore, a native of Whitesboro, New York, received an offer from Colgate when he was just a sophomore at Notre Dame Junior/Senior (Utica, New York) High School. He said the school’s clear interest in him was reason enough for the prolific scorer to choose the Raiders.“I have coached there for 30 years and Pat was one of the top three players I ever coached,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Durr said in an email. “A great young man, a dedicated student of the game, and a superb work ethic.”Moore’s first three years at Colgate were defined by his prowess along the perimeter. By the end of his junior season, he was eighth on the all-time list for 3-pointers made in program history with 141.But his senior season was defined more by his injury than it was outside shooting. For a while after his surgery, his actions were limited. He could do some walking, but no bending, twisting or lifting.“So for six straight weeks after the surgery,” Moore said, “it was pretty much nothing, just laying around my house.”The next phase in the recovery process was about three months of physical therapy that took place three times each week. Only after that was completed was he allowed back on the court.In total, Moore said, it was about a six-month recovery process.The physical struggles were not the only obstacles between Moore and a fifth year of basketball at Colgate. His nine games played last season were just few enough to allow him another year of eligibility.In order to be allotted that chance, he had to change his sociology minor into a second major.A few months after meeting with all of the appropriate people and filling out paperwork, Moore learned that he would be able to return to the university and the team for a fifth year.“It just shows how much he loves the game,” senior guard Luke Roh said, “how much he loves being a part of this team, how much he loves being at Colgate.”Moore didn’t return for the first eight games this season, and hasn’t started in the first three he’s played in since being cleared. But he has seen an increasing number of minutes. In the team’s most recent game, a loss to the New Hampshire, Moore played for 20 minutes and scored five points.He’s redeveloping a role that he once held so prominently at Colgate, and it hasn’t been easy. But his head coach, Matt Langel is appreciative of his dedication to playing one last season.“He does great in school. He’s zero maintenance, meaning you never have to worry about him being on time or taking care of any of his responsibilities,” Langel said. “He’s just a wonderful young guy to coach.” Comments Published on December 21, 2014 at 8:44 pm Contact Kevin: kjpacell@syr.edu Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

S’Falcons Bounce Back with 4-0 Win over ‘Boastful’ Zambia

first_imgGHANA 2018Cup holders, Super Falcons of Nigeria shot back to contention at the 11th Women Africa Cup of Nations after a 4-0 thrashing of Group leaders Shepolopolo of Zambia in Cape Coast.A one goal defeat in their opening match against South Africa on Sunday had marooned the champions in third place on the Group B table, following Zambia’s 5-0 win over two –time champions Equatorial Guinea. But the Zambians could not hold a candle to the Falcons when the die was cast yesterday evening. The scoreline was only two goals short of the 6-0 hiding the Zambians received from the Nigerians in Namibia four years ago, but that would not have been the case had reigning African Woman Player of the Year, Asisat Oshoala not, inexplicably, failed to put away any of one dozen gilt–edged opportunities that came her way.After Oshoala failed to get enough purchase on her shot in the 9th minute, Captain Onome Ebi and Rita Chikwelu came close with headers, but Zambia also side –netted as a tight game played out at the Cape Coast Stadium.Desire Oparanozie, who scored the lone goal in the final of the last edition of the championship in Cameroon two years ago, which was enough for the Falcons to retain their trophy, blasted past goalkeeper Nali in the 41st minute after a good pass from Francisca Ordega to register Nigeria’s first goal of the tournament.In the second half, the Falcons created chance after chance, but Oshoala either blasted them away from goal or Nali simply foiled her efforts. The entry of Josephine Chukwunonye, for injured Faith Michael, appeared to reinvigorate Nigeria. After Oparanozie rounded the goalkeeper but saw her shot blocked from going in, Oshoala missed a string of sitters and Ordega saw her good chip saved.Ordega would get the second goal in the 70th minute, cashing in and rolling a volley past Nali after Oparanozie’s shot came off the upright.Substitutes Rasheedat Ajibade and Amarachi Okoronkwo got two more goals, Rasheedat scoring with a spectacular screamer that saw the ball come in off the underside of the bar. Okoronkwo finished beautifully after picking up a loose ball from a corner kick.Next up for Nigeria is their final group game against Equatorial Guinea on Saturday.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Women and babies of color face higher health care disparities

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisALPENA, Mich. — The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services needs your input to improve the lives of mothers and babies. They’re traveling statewide for responses.District Health Department Number 4 has an upcoming town hall on mother infant health and equity improvement planning. The meeting will have free food and it starts September 10 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Aplex.Health education specialist Cathy Goike says women and babies of color, especially, lack access to quality health care.“The reason why the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, this is along with other state and local partners, want to hear from us is because in Michigan we still have mothers dying from child birth. We still have babies dying within their first year of life.”Researchers at the University of Michigan found black and Hispanic women with two or more health conditions were two to three times more likely to experience a severe birth problem compared with white mothers. The study concluded that health care access prior to pregnancy is a contributor to maternal morbidity.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Truck destroyed after fire engulfs it early Tuesday morningNext CBD oil use is on the riselast_img read more

Djokovic’s No. 1 ranking on the line at China Open

first_imgNovak Djokovic has been No. 1 in the ATP world rankings since Nov. 5, 2012. That’s a run of 48 consecutive weeks (he’s been No. 1 for a total of 101).That run could end this week at the China Open in Beijing.To stay atop the tennis world, Djokovic needs to win … and he has to hope Nadal doesn’t reach the final.That might be asking a lot, considering Nadal has played in 13 tournaments this year and reached the final in 12 of them (he lost in the first round at Wimbledon). He is 61-3 overall with 10 titles.”(It) will be very tough to become No. 1,” Nadal said. “But if I am still playing the same way that I have the past couple of months, I hope to have my chance here or in the next few weeks.”This year, even if I started a little bit later [in early February], I am completing a great season. I’m playing one of the best seasons of my career. That’s why I’m in a good position in the Rankings and I had great successes in the important tournaments.” Djokovic, the 2011-12 year-end No. 1, wants to stay at the top.”As long as there is a chance, I will fight for that top spot,” he said. “But, again, with no doubt (Nadal) has had the best results this year. This year, he’s been the best player in the world. I have been having ups and downs throughout this year. But still it was quite a good season for me. But it’s not over.”last_img read more
