Last-gasp defeat hard to accept for Uganda coach

first_imgUganda’s players react at the end of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations group D football match between Egypt and Uganda in Port-Gentil on January 21, 2017. AFP PHOTOPort-Gentil, Gabon | AFP | Uganda coach Milutin Sredojevic admitted the way in which his side were knocked out of the Africa Cup of Nations with a last-gasp defeat to Egypt on Saturday was a crushing blow.“We tried our best but unfortunately it was not enough,” said “Micho” after Abdallah El Said’s 89th-minute strike, from a Mohamed Salah assist, gave Egypt a 1-0 win in the Group D encounter in Port-Gentil.“This level of competition demands total focus of concentration on details that decide games.“We couldn’t keep that concentration up to the last moment — when we were supposed to close the game out we allowed a counterattack and the experience and quality of Salah made the difference.”The result left Uganda bottom of the group without a point or a goal after a previous 1-0 loss to Ghana, and their first appearance at the Cup of Nations since 1978 will stop at the group stage.“We have come after 39 years and paid for the lesson in a hard way. If you lose in a convincing way you accept it, but in this way it is very hard to accept.“We came here to play three Cup finals — the first we lost on a penalty to Ghana and the second we lost in the last minute on the counterattack.” Uganda will now only have pride to play for in their last game, against Mali on Wednesday.“Now we need to pick up the pieces and look forward in order to see who will play the last game — it is hard to say who will play in the last game, we have certain injuries like (goalkeeper Denis) Onyango.“We will see how we play the last match but the ambition remains that we want to go home with pride and with a win.”Total Man of the MatchAbdullah El Said (Egypt)ReactionsHector Cuper I think all the groups are complicated not only ours. We had a difficult game against a very tough opponent. Our qualification is not guaranteed yet, so we have to fight till the end.At the Africa Cup of Nations every match is difficult. I wished to have a bigger scoreline and better performance but I thank my players who did all their best in tough circumstances. I respect Uganda and commend them for their performance today. Every game has its own strategy and we always adjust our plans to our opponents. Abdullah El Said deserves the Man of the Match award. Our target for every game is to win, so it’s accepted to make some risk but not in an irrational way.Milutin “Micho” Sredojevic It was a moment of experience that made the difference. I want to thank my players who gave their best and made their people proud. We came here to play three finals, we lost to Ghana by a penalty, lost to Egypt in the last minute and our ambition is to win against Mali and return home with pride.At this level of competition, we have to be focused at the maximum level. I believe we were perfect on the tactical aspect, but we couldn’t keep our concentration till the last moment. We played against a very good and talented team. We are coming back after 39-years and we are learning lessons and gaining experience but in a very hard way.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Two River Pride Takes Center Stage

first_imgBy John BurtonRED BANK – Borough Councilman Edward Zipprich had a message for the younger audience members participating in last week’s celebration of Two River Pride. Zipprich, who is openly gay, wanted participants to know that things are getting better.“I think we’ve begun to see a lot more tolerance,” Zipprich said at the June 20 event, held in at the Two River Theater.Organizers of Two River Pride expect the event to become an annual gathering in recognition of National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month.While Zipprich said things have gotten better, he admitted there is still much work to be done on obtaining equality for the LGBT community. “We also have to get ready for the next generation,” he said.The evening was in large part geared toward a younger audience, giving them an opportunity to talk about their experiences in a nurturing and friendly environment, with positive role models offering their own experiences.A portion of the theater space at 21 Bridge Ave. was transformed into a makeshift coffeehouse – with coffee provided by Coffee Corral on Drs. James Parker Boulevard. There was an open mic session for musical and theatrical performances and reflections by some guest speakers. There was also a chance for participants to have their thoughts and reflections videotaped for use at a later time during various programs in local high schools.Kate Okeson, who helped Zipprich, Borough Council­woman Kathy Horgan and a handful of others organize the event, teaches art at Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School. She is an activist and is co-founder of Make It Better For Youth, a group that works with LGBT youth. She said the event was aimed at “trying to open the network up” for younger people who, while facing the traditional travails of adolescence, are looking to come to terms with their sexuality and deal with peer and familial issues.Okeson and Zipprich said it is good that young people are finding the strength to come out at an earlier age and it allows them to find their place in life. Zipprich, who is 53, said he didn’t come out until he was 37.“That common experience of ‘what will happen if I declare this?” Okeson said. “It can be all consuming, definitely.”“It took me a long time,” Zipprich said, recalling the trepidation he felt about how friends, family and colleagues would feel about his decision. “Was I really willing to give up my relationships with them to live openly?”Sue Fulton and the Giving Voice Choir from the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Monmouth County.Brenda “Sue” Fulton graduated in 1980 from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in the first class to allow women. She became an Army captain before resigning her commission to come out. Now, with the repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, those wishing to serve can do so and not be denied the opportunity, she said.Joshua Fontanez of Browns Mill is an Army lieutenant who attended a military college in Vermont, where he says being gay wasn’t easy. “You can wish, hope and want,” he said, “but eventually, you have to put your foot down,” and fight for what you believe is right. Fontanez joined a group of gay students whose motto was “You’re not alone.” The school’s administration was surprised with the growth of the organization. “I knew we were doing the right thing when Fox News started attacking us,” he said.Mayor Pasquale Menna offered a formal proclamation from the borough council honoring the event, and advised the audience to use their vote to get their message across. “Equality is not something that just happens,” he told the mostly youthful audience. “You have to work for it.”After the evening’s events, Jordan Pollak, 19, of Manalapan described himself as a transsexual male, who will enter Rutgers University in the fall and will major in psychology and neurology. “I’m an expanding advocate,” Pollak said. “I’m trying to do everything I can to bring about change.“I actually think events like this can be lifesaving,” Pollak said. “These events can show people they aren’t alone.”Chris Hennessy, a 19-year-old Oceanport resident describ­ed herself as “gender queer.” Hennessy, who is attending Fordham University, said she came out to friends and family while a student at Rumson-Fair Haven High School. “Before I came out, high school was harder for me than after I came out,” she said.The revelation gave her confidence. As for her family, “Before I came out I didn’t know how they would respond,” but they have been quite supportive, Hennessy said. “When I heard about this event I thought I wished there was this type of event when I was younger,” Hennessy said.“We want to thank our youth,” said David Pasquale, chairman of the borough’s Human Relations Commission, and an organizer for the event, “because they always show us the best example.”last_img read more

It’s hockey time — Leafs open training camp on 2015-16 KIJHL season

first_imgMcLellan said the fans would see many of those borderline rookies when Nelson opens the preseason Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the NDCC Arena.After Saturday, the Leaf coaching staff will cut the roster to between 25-27 players for the next two exhibition game series against Castlegar Rebels — Tuesday, September 8 in Nelson and Wednesday, September 9 in the Sunflower City.“We’re going to take the best players that are available to us so it’s up to them how they perform,” McLellan explained.McLellan said the defence has been overhauled since Nelson graduated most of the blueline last season — both Darnel St. Pierre and Robson Cramer heading to play for Simon Fraser of the BC Intercollegiate Hockey League.Nelson has six defencemen already carded for the season.Up front, Leafs still have some players still attending Junior A camps.However, McLellan expects returning forwards Rayce Miller, Austin Lindsay and Sam Webber to help Nelson start the season on a positive note.“All three of those players are proven commodities in this league and adding Jo Davie we acquired in a trade in May with Victoria will be a big help up front as well,” he said.McLellan has signed one goalie to date with six players trying out for the starting position between the pipes.“We had an experienced 19-year-old who we thought would be with us but just got signed in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League so that position is really up in the air right now,” he said.Nelson opens the regular season September 11 against Kelowna Chiefs in the first of a two-game weekend home stand.The next day, September 12, the Fernie Ghostriders are in town to meet the Leafs at the NDCC Arena.Both games have a 7 p.m. start time. There are always more than a couple of questions at the start of every hockey season in the Heritage City: Will the latest edition of the Nelson Leafs be able to break through to overtake the always tough competition in the Neil Murdoch Division of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League?There is some encouraging news from Leaf skipper Dave McLellan, especially after the second-year man was able to get a head start on recruiting.“Last year it was really tough coming here August 24th to start with the team but this year we started the process with many of the player at our camp in May . . . some I started taking to as early as February,” said McLellan on the eve of the start of Leafs training camp Wednesday.“Since we had our main camp in May we’ve had more than 100 players came through Nelson from all over North America to try out.”Leafs begin quest for the KIJHL title beginning Wednesday with registration at the NDCC Arena.Thursday, the players, coaches and off-ice personal get down to business with on-ice and dryland training.Later, Thursday, Nelson plays its first exhibition game against the Beaver Valley Nitehawks at 7:30 p.m. in the NDCC Arena.“We have most of the team picked, but with that said there are many of the players still at Junior A camps . . .. Many of them are still trying out so basically there is a few spot open available here allowing some players to still battle for spots to make the team.”McLellan has broken training camp into two phases.Phase one, which gives some of the borderline rookies a chance to impress the coaches, concludes Saturday with the second game of the home-and-home series with Beaver Valley.last_img read more

The horse had been working well and he liked him, so things are looking good.”Added D’Amato: “When he’s on his game, Edwin is as good as any rider out here. He’s come back, he looks focused, he always looks good on horses, they run for him, and hopefully we’ll put him on some more winners.” ARROGATE COULD WORK AT SANTA ANITA AGAIN SUNDAY, IF . . .

I was happy with the breeze. The track was deep, it was heavier, which is good. He got a lot out of it. He did it the right way.“He kept going out strong on his own, so he didn’t have to be urged (by Martin Garcia). We’re good right now. He’s got to breeze at Santa Anita one more time (before shipping to Florida). I was planning on Sunday, but looking at this weather . . . I quit looking at this damn Weather Channel. It’s unbelievable.“For the first time in California, these weathermen have been right. I can’t believe it. They’re usually so wrong.

7 children drowned as van falls in Indira canal, three bodies traced

first_imgThe bodies of three children were recovered during search operations after seven of them went missing when a pick-up van plunged into a canal near here Thursday, officials said.The vehicle carried 29 people, who were returning after a wedding function in the neighbouring Barabanki district, and of them 22 were rescued.Seven children went missing and the three bodies were fished out by divers of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and State Disaster Response Force (SDRF), officials said.The van fell into the Indira canal in Nagram on the outskirts at around 3 a.m., Lucknow District Magistrate Kaushal Raj Sharma said.“Three bodies have been found and the hunt is on to trace the remaining four children,” Mr. Sharma said.

They might have been washed away in the rapid current of the water in the canal,” Mr. Sharma, who rushed to the site, said earlier.Parents of some of the missing children accused the driver of the pick-up van of being under the influence of alcohol.“The driver of the van was under the influence of alcohol and was driving at a high speed when he overshot a bend and the van hurtled down the canal,” said Lajjawati, one of the parents.last_img read more
