first_imgLIVERPOOL, England (Reuters) – Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah’s virtuoso display in the 5-2 win over AS Roma on Tuesday brought his side to the brink of the Champions League final and posed a serious threat to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo’s grip on the Ballon d’Or award.The Egyptian scored two brilliant goals in the first half against his former club to set Juergen Klopp’s side on their way to victory in the semi-final first leg at Anfield. He set up two more in the second half to cap a thrilling evening.Salah’s importance was further demonstrated by the fact Roma scored the two goals that give them a slither of hope of turning the tide around after he had been substituted.The Egyptian’s strikes brought him to a remarkable 43 goals in all competitions this season, keeping him at the front of the list of top scorers in Europe, one ahead of Real Madrid’s talisman Ronaldo and two ahead of Barcelona’s Messi.The Spain-based duo have had a stranglehold on the prestigious Ballon d’Or award since 2008, each winning the trophy for the world’s best player five times. But Salah’s decisive performances are threatening to break that hegemony.Since signing from Roma last season, the 25-year-old has already equalled the Premier League record for goals in a 38-game season with 31. He also recently pipped Kevin de Bruyne, Leroy Sane and David Silva of runaway champions Manchester City to the PFA Player-of-the-Year award.WORLD CLASS His manager Klopp encouraged reporters to stake Salah’s claim as the best in the world while admitting he faces serious competition.“If you think he’s the best in the world, write it or say it,” said Klopp.“He is in outstandingly good shape, in world-class shape, 100 percent. To be the best in the world you need to do that over a longer period, I think. There are a few others who are not too bad.”The Ballon d’Or has gone to a winner of the Champions League for the last four years and Liverpool may have to lift a sixth European Cup in Kiev if Salah is to usurp double holder Ronaldo, whose Real side face Bayern Munich in the other semi-final.Messi could also stake his claim to win the award for a sixth time with an influential performance for Argentina at the World Cup.But Salah will also be in Russia, the leading light of an Egypt team making their first appearance in the tournament for 28 years.If Salah leads Egypt out of Group A and steers them towards the quarter-finals, he will be able to make an even stronger case to prise the highly coveted individual award from the two greats of the game.last_img read more

first_imgShare this:FacebookTwitter NASHVILLE, TN  (WLAF) – The Tennessee Department of Health will not issue data on COVID-19 cases and tests on Sunday, June 28, 2020, due to an unplanned shutdown of the state surveillance system. TDH will resume daily provision of case counts and additional data once the system returns to full functionality and complete and accurate data can be provided.TDH uses the National Electronic Disease Surveillance System Base System, known as NBS, developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help local, state and territorial health departments manage reportable disease data and send it to CDC. This system houses data for all reportable diseases in Tennessee, including COVID-19, and is the system health department staff members use to perform public health case investigations.Due to an extremely high volume of both COVID-19 and other laboratory test results being reported, there have been recent intermittent backlogs of labs in queue to be imported into the NBS system. This issue is not unique to Tennessee, and is affecting all NBS jurisdictions. The TDH team has been working closely with the NBS vendor and Tennessee State Government information technology support to quickly implement fixes that have been identified.At approximately 3 a.m. EDT June 28, the element of NBS that imports laboratory results encountered an unplanned shutdown. This issue was corrected by TDH and state information technology teams, and laboratory imports to NBS were restarted by noon.Due to the ongoing backlog and this unplanned shutdown, a limited number of COVID-19 test results were imported into NBS in the last 24 hours. TDH will not release updated COVID-19 numbers today since our data are incomplete. This will also affect our metropolitan health department partners and their data updates tomorrow.These technical issues may cause a delay in local public health officials contacting people recently diagnosed with COVID-19. Please consult information online or contact your local health department if you were recently diagnosed with COVID-19 and have questions about next steps.

first_imgWe get the fact that José Mourinho is a big fan and wants the midfielder to stick around, but the amount of clubs the player appears to be in talks with suggests he really would rather go elsewhere.The latest to add to the list are Arsenal, with Foot 365 journalist Patrick Juillard revealing on Twitter that Fellaini’s representatives are due to meet with the Gunners early this week to discuss a potential free transfer for the Belgium international.Out of contract on June 30th, the midfielder has a renewal offer from the Red Devils on the table, but the former Everton star’s desire to be a regular first-team player means he’d rather look around at what’s available for now.Embed from Getty ImagesIt was reported last week that talks with AC Milan had slowed down after Fellaini asked for €7m/year post tax plus a few bonuses; far too much for the financially restrained Serie A side.Arsenal probably have the money to match his demands, yet it remains to be seen if they’re willing to do so for a 30-year-old whose best years could quickly be behind him.Guess we’ll have to wait and see what comes from this Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameChallenge Your Brain With This Must-Play Strategy Game.

first_imgHelsinki “Jokers” Photo: Helsinki “Jokerit”In a conversation with Ilta Sanomat, Jari Kuri, the general manager of the Helsinki Jokerit club of the Continental Hockey League (KHL) club, admitted that it would be more convenient for the Finnish team to postpone the start of the championship to the beginning of October.KHL plans to play the first match of next season on September 2. True, it is still unclear whether foreign teams will be able to play in their arenas. Beijing’s Kunlun Red Star has already decided to move to the Moscow-based city of Mitichi. Minsk’s “Dynamo” is also in a more optimal situation, as the border between Russia and Belarus is open.However, Riga’s “Dinamo”, Nursultana’s “Barys” and “Jokerit” cannot be sure that they will be able to participate in the upcoming championship. The GM of the Helsinki Club also emphasizes that postponing the start of the championship to October would be a good option, which would allow to evaluate all possibilities and make a good decision. “That’s what we hope for,” said Kuri.“We live in the hope that we will be able to play in Helsinki. This is option number one. If that does not happen, then we will see what we can do. KHL has not forced us to move to Russia. It has been known for a long time that Kunlun Red Star will play in Mithishchi. Riga and Dinamo are in a similar situation. They are also waiting for the events to develop, “said Jokerit GM, denying that the club could withdraw from the league.Earlier, Russian media wrote that Dinamo may have to play its home games in Russia. Mitišči and Sochi were mentioned as possible options. However, in order for Dinamo to participate in the championship, the club should be clear with the head coach and the line-up, which is still not done.In a conversation with Latvijas Avīze, the chairman of the council of the organization Juris Savickis admitted that the name of the coach is already known, but the contract has not been concluded yet. “We plan to move towards the end of the week, training should start next week,” says Savickis, revealing that financial problems have been resolved that could prevent KHL from playing. “Yes, it looks like everything will be fine, now it’s just about the technical details.”last_img read more

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua, CMC – Out-of-favour limited overs all-rounder, Rovman Powell, has been named in a 15-man group for a high performance training camp starting here next Monday. The 25-year-old, who has played 34 One-Day Internationals and 20 Twenty20 Internationals, was part of West Indies’ World Cup qualifying campaign in Zimbabwe last year March but subsequently overlooked for the ongoing showpiece in England.He also captained West Indies in a three-match ODI series away to Bangladesh last December when Jason Holder was injured, but has not featured in an ODI since.Powell is one of nine players recently selected for the upcoming West Indies A series against touring India A, who will feature in the 13-day camp set for Coolidge Cricket Ground here. He is joined by 23-year-old fast bowler Shermon Lewis who played Tests against India and Bangladesh last year, and 20-year-old all-rounder Sherfane Rutherford who featured in a single T20 International against Bangladesh last December.The camp follows on the heels of a similar initiative for emerging white-ball players which ended Wednesday, and high performance manager, Graeme West, said it was yet another move to expand the talent pool in the region.“This camp is another opportunity for the CWI selectors to recognise and reward players that have impressed in regional cricket,” West said. “Many of the players selected have come through the CWI talent pathway and have benefitted from our investment in Youth, Under-19, High Performance and ‘A’ Team programmes over the last five years.”He added: “Four of the players selected also participated in the recent emerging players camp which focused primarily on their white-ball skill development, but this camp will focus on red-ball skills with every player involved having produced performances of great quality in the West Indies Championship.”With opener Chandrapaul Hemraj and left-arm spinner Khary Pierre – both of whom have represented West Indies in white-ball cricket – also attending the camp, West said knowledge transfer would be important. “It will be great to have five players with full international caps to their name attending, enabling them to pass on some of their experiences to the younger players in the squad who have only just been introduced to the first-class arena in the Caribbean,” he said.SQUAD – Keacy Carty, Tagenarine Chanderpaul, Dominic Drakes, Akim Fraser, Keon Harding, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Kavem Hodge, Chemar Holder, Brandon King, Shermon Lewis, Marquino Mindley, Khary Pierre, Rovman Powell, Sherfane Rutherford, Romario Shepherd, Jeremy Solozano.last_img read more

first_imgThe Guyana Tennis Association (GTA) along long-standing sponsor GBTI on Tuesday rewarded the winners of the recent GBTI/GTA lawn tennis tournament at GBTI’s Lawn Tennis Court and facilities, Bel Air, Georgetown. Headlining the list of awardees were Gavin Lewis and Afruica Gentle who both served their way to championship honours in the male and female Open categories. The two were triple crown winners after clinching championship honours in the doubles and mixed doubles categories. It was Gentle’s third time completing the feat while it was Lewis’ maiden Open and triple crown haul.Speaking with Stabroek Sport after the simple ceremony, 23-year-old Lewis, who recently returned from a scholarship stint in the US, revealed that his accomplishments are the fruits of hard labour. Newly crowned champs Gavin Lewis and Afruica Gentle will have their names engraved on the shield “It’s a good feeling… I’ve been training from March to the beginning of the tournament and I was expecting stiff competition given the fact that I was randomly placed in the draw where I had to face the defending champion in the quarterfinal but I managed to win and I’m satisfied with my performance,” Lewis said.The young man further disclosed that he is aiming to pursue his master’s degree in Italy where he will also get the opportunity to continue playing the sport at a competitive level. Lewis, who defeated the defending champion Anthony Downes in the semis, said he was appreciative of GBTI’s continuous effort to develop the sport. He also encouraged more youths to get involved in lawn tennis.  Gentle, on the other hand, who was the overall female MVP having won three titles, said she was confident of producing top performances from the go. “I knew it was coming. I was preparing for it. Unfortunately, last year I didn’t get to play because I was ill but this year I said I’ll win because I’ve put in a lot of work and dedicated myself to this,” the 18-year-old Roraima Tennis Club player explained. Gentle will not turn her attention to the international tennis action; she is set to depart Guyana tomorrow to participate in two lawn tennis tournaments in Jamaica – the Blue Mountain International Tennis Championships and the International Tennis Federation Tennis Championships.  Meanwhile, Pamela Binda, Public Relations and Marketing Director of GBTI, said the company is committed to sponsoring the tournament for the next decade.last_img read more
