The Hispanics also fail before the Czech Republic and keep the full in the European

first_imgIn the second half, the Spanish team put one more gearWith the fourth victory, you will still have to see Austria and Croatia Photo: Reuters The Spanish men’s handball team this Thursday added their fourth victory, and the first in the second phase, in the European Championship that is being played in Austria, Norway and Sweden, after imposing much forceful 31-25 on the Republic CzechIn this way, the current champion, although she did not play her best match of the championship, achieved her first two important points in the ‘Main Round’ which gives access to the medals after fulfilling the forecasts before an opponent she almost always dominated and the one who finished developing in the second half when he escaped with an already insurmountable difference.Spain had a hard time breaking the game and did not get it until the final quarter of an hour. In the first part, the Czechs, thanks to the great work in the goal of Mrkva (9 stops, including two seven meters), were able to recover from the first initial blow (7-4, min. 12).The Central European team, which suffered from the good work of Julen Aguinagalde in the pivot zone, grabbed the actions of his goalkeeper to match things (7-7). However, this balance seemed only real on the scoreboard because the Central European team did not succeed in disarming the 6-0 of the ‘Hispanics’ and survived mainly due to the lack of success of the current champion.center_img Thus, the defense and appearance of Gonzalo Pérez de Vargas caused the Spaniards to re-open a gap that reached their maximum number of five goals (14-9) just before the break and after the Czechs only scored two goals since the tie seven and have them remain unmarked for the last seven minutes.Final hit after the last approachIn the resumption the crash script did not change much, although those of Jan Filip and Daniel Kubes recovered some offensive success, although it was not reflected much on the scoreboard because Spain, with good minutes of Alex Dusjhebaev, also scored with some ease to expand even at seven goals the rent (19-12, min. 37).The descent of success in the goal of Mrkva was compensated by the side Kasparek and the central Zdrahala as the best weapons of the Czechs, who did not miss another stop in attack of those of Ribera to sign a 1-5 of partial and recover options ( 20-17, min. 43).The Czech Republic did not last long because it did not survive a series of exclusions and the double world champion again took a good lead (23-17, min. 45). The attacks without goalkeeper were not the solution either and they received as punishment fast goals of the Spaniards who finished the game (29-19, min.53) to be able to live relaxed the final stretch. This Saturday (6:15 pm), the ‘Hispanics’ will face each other in a key game against host Austria.DATA SHEET–OUTCOME: SPAIN, 31 – CZECH REPUBLIC, 25 (14-9, at rest).–SPAIN: Pérez de Vargas (1), Corrales (p); Maqueda (3), Fernández (5), Entrerríos (1), A.

Dortmund’s ‘yellow wall’ has just convinced Haaland

first_imgErling Haaland has fallen on his feet in Dortmund. The goals come in quantity, quality and show a natural talent to score for the joy of the fans of Westphalia that He already has a new idol even though it has only been a month. The Norwegian, although born in Leeds, made his signing official by the Germans on December 29 after negotiating, with Raiola and his father, with half of Europe. United, Juventus, RB Leizpig and even Real Madrid interest … but It was the Dortmund who finally dressed him with his colors.In the strategy to sign him, Dortmund used all the elements at his disposal: he urged the players of his squad to try to convince him by talking to him on WhatsApp, he asked Puma to offer him a sponsorship contract to take him to Nike and to this brand will raise its emoluments and, now, the sports director Michael Zorc confesses in Sport Bild that even the famous ‘yellow wall’ served to convince Haaland that Dortmund was the perfect destination.Zorc assures this media that, during a meeting with the player, he showed Haaland a video of the Sudtribune, better known as ‘the yellow wall’, one of the best known stands in the world for the atmosphere they generate in the Westfalenstadion. The manager showed him the excellent atmosphere of the German stadium, which seems to have just convinced the Norwegian. INA FASSBENDER & nbsp; (AFP) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>INA FASSBENDER (AFP) “He seems to like it!” Zorc said before continuing to explain more feelings about the operation. “We had to go very strong to get Erling signed and it is no secret that other great clubs also worked very hard to sign him.

Haaland has already made the yellow stand sing that fascinated him four times (he has four other goals as a visitor) and it seems that they will be many more.last_img read more

Cordobés Pedro Conde debuts with goal in Champions

first_imgPedro Count You already know what it is to mark with the shirt of Shabab Al Ahli. The Cordoba striker opened his scoring account with the Red Knights in an unbeatable scenario: the Asian Champions League. On the opening day of the competition, Count signed 1-1 against Pakhtakor, who continued to make a fortress of his stadium and ended up taking all three points.In a game marked by rain, Pakhtakor opened the scoring at 18 minutes thanks to a great shot by Masharipov from outside the area. The Uzbeks left winning the break, but after the resumption Pedro Conde was responsible for signing the tie. The Spaniard took advantage of the conditions of the pitch – the ball was stuck in the rain – to release his scoring account with Al Ahli, current UAE League champion. The joy, however, did not last long on the Emirati side, since it took Pakhtakor only three minutes to get back on the scoreboard. He did it thanks to Serbian Dragan Ceran, who finished off a ball hung by Khamdanov to the heart of the area.It was like that, with the 2-1 campaigning on the scoreboard, as the match ended at Pakhtakor Markaziyy in Tashkent. Pakhtakor, which has six consecutive victories at home in the Champions League, thus became the first Group B team to achieve a victory. Shabab Al Ahli will seek to release his locker next week, when he will receive the current champion, Al Hilal, in Dubai.last_img read more

Setién ‘transforms’ Arthur

first_imgThe arrival of Setién allowed rocket fire to the radicals of the possession style. “Arthur will now be indisputable,” he took for granted. The numbers have said the exact opposite. Attacked by pubic problems that are not new and that left him out of combat at the end of last season and before the end of 2019 in this one, Arthur is only playing in small doses with Setién who, however, has been able to find him a good provisional role.Arthur has only played 166 minutes in seven games. His only appearance as a starter, in Valencia, was a fiasco. He was an inconsequential player who was shipwrecked and to which the rhythm of the game passed over. Barça was much better with Arturo Vidal on the pitch. Arthur seemed somewhat disappointed. Already in the game against Ibiza he had not been especially active in the 20 minutes given by the Cantabrian coach. Accepted that his physical condition is not the best, and that it is costing him to become a footballer who supports the rigors of European football (the club is demanding more professional behavior and the player has already had to ask for forgiveness twice publicly), and above all that endures the parties at a high intensity level, Setién has decided to reinvent him while he gets fit. In the last four games (Leganés, Levante, Athletic and Betis) he has played 19 ‘, 10’, 21 ‘and 33’ respectively. In all contributed something. A goal against Leganés, control against the granotas, a golden assistance to Messi that the Argentine could not turn into a goal in San Mamés; and, finally, a few minutes of quality at Villamarín to keep the ball and drive transitions with 2-3.Arthur is fatigued too soon too often. As if he beat the rhythm of the games and was not quite physically fine. But in these moments he has taken his quality for a walk and, waiting for him to recover some exuberance in his football, it is important that he offer a service to the team. Also, for now, he has found an accommodation and that is something. That leaving that provisional role to be a player with hierarchy from the beginning depends on Arthur himself. It is obvious that he speaks the language that Setién likes.last_img read more

The cards can leave Simeone without three pieces

first_imgLooking a little further, in the locker room there are five other players who are two yellow from the penalty. They are Savic, Morata, Koke, Vitolo and Vrsaljko. The case of the Croatian is special, who made his debut against Leganés and was then reprimanded in the next three games. Thus, there are eight rojiblancos who have to be careful not to be punished. At least, Cholo has the peace of mind that 22 players are already available, all but Lemar, Therefore, sanctions may not be a serious problem if they do not accumulate. On the horizon, after visiting Espanyol, Atlético will meet Sevilla, direct rival, and then Athletic, Osasuna and Valladolid.In Champions the situation is very different. The Cholo only has a warning in case the Atlético is raised in the quarterfinals. In the European competition the cycles to be punished are not five cards, but three and with two yellow is only Correa, admonished in the first leg against Liverpool. No other player carries more than one card. Largely overcome the plague of injuries in the locker room, Atlético must now be careful with cards too. Simeone has a yellow of the sanction in League to three soccer players: Thomas, Marcos Llorente and João Félix. As soon as they are admonished they will become low for the next game. For the technician it can be a problem especially if he drops both means at the same time, because the Ghanaian is an essential and the Madrid player is gaining weight in the team and also, if necessary, could replace his partner.In the case of Thomas, the third footballer in the squad with more minutes (2,651), he would complete his second cycle of reprimands, since he has nine yellow ones – those that add up to ten more than First – and the game was lost against Granada (first round) by penalty. For its part, João Félix (1897 ’) saw Villarreal his fourth yellow in the league, the third to protest, to become warned. In the case of Llorente, he has been aware since November and there are already seven games in which he has dodged the fifth card.last_img read more

Eibar thanks the health and essential services staff for their great effort

first_imgEibar thanks the health and essential services personnel for their great effort to combat the coronavirus, which has paralyzed almost all sports, social and work activity, except for what is essential. Eibar donated the coronavirus tests to OsakidetzaTwo weeks ago, Eibar donated the coronavirus tests sent by LaLiga to all First Division football clubs to Osakidetza (Basque Health Service).The eibarresa entity considered then that this material to make tests to detect COVID-19 was needed by the medical services that try to spread the epidemic.In the Catalan club there was no one with symptoms of the disease (fever, sore throat, shortness of breath, shortness of breath, dry cough), so in a gesture of solidarity he transferred the material sent by the Professional Football League for use by people with coronavirus symptoms or risk groups ( elderly or with respiratory, cardiac, or defenseless problems). Eibar made this decision considering that there were people who needed to pass the tests to detect COVID-19 with a higher priority than the Barça footballers.The LFP (Professional Soccer League) sent coronavirus tests to the First Division and Second clubs to detect positives in the soccer players and technicians. The sooner sick people are detected by COVID-19, the more possibilities there are to avoid later infections.. Isolation of the sick in a soccer team would prevent the disease from spreading to the rest of the staff, and to the workers of the soccer entities. What LaLiga wants is that the sanitary problem affects the teams of the highest category as little as possible, to resume the competition as soon as possible -possibly behind closed doors- when the alarm state is over. Eibar thanks the health and essential services personnel for their great effort to combat the coronavirus, which has paralyzed almost all sports, social and work activity, except for what is essential. The Gipuzkoan club released this message of encouragement (with applause icons) on social networks on Wednesday to the groups fighting against the epidemic, praising the work of medical personnel, who take care of the health of the sick, and that of minimum services, which allows the consequences of COVID-19 to be mitigated to a society that continues to function despite the confinement of people in their homes.Eibar released a video in which two Barça players appear, Anaitz Arbilla and Alaitz Seoane, from the men’s and women’s first team, respectively, together with representatives of Athletic Club (Aritz Aduriz and Garazi Murua), the Royal Society (Mikel Oyarzabal and Nahikari García), the Alavés (Martín Agirregabiria and Maialen Martínez de Marigorta), and Osasuna coach Jagoba Arrasate.In this audiovisual, the Basque and Navarrese athletes expressed a message of thanks and solidarity. “You encourage us every week, but now it is up to us to encourage you. Because at this moment we all play together. To those who are at home, to those who give their all in health services, to those who maintain essential services every day, to those who are suffering: We will get ahead, we will return sooner rather than later. Together we will make it“they stressed.last_img read more

The Minister of Sports assures that team activity will resume “on May 11”

first_imgThe Sports Minister of France, Roxana Maracineanu, has assured that team sports activity will resume “from Monday, May 11“with” specific rules of distancing “, a measure that contrasts with the decision of Ligue 1 to end the season by proclaiming Paris Saint-Germain champion.“The sport will resume in France from May 11, with very specific rules of distancing“He declared in an interview with the French station France Info.” The training sessions can be done with groups of less than ten people, abroad, “he added.In this sense, the former swimmer explained that all federations, “including collective sports and judo”, may “carry out activities, respecting the distance”. “We are also working on the reopening of facilities depending on the evolution of the pandemic,” he said.
