0Shares0000Argentina’s national football team coach Jorge Sampaoli,NIZHNIY NOVGOROD, Russia, June 21 – Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli admitted his side were “emotionally broken” after conceding the first goal in their 3-0 defeat by Croatia on Thursday, which left their World Cup hopes hanging by a thread.The two-time world champions need to beat Nigeria in their final Group D match on Tuesday and for other results to go their way to have any chance of reaching the last 16, after Willy Caballero’s dreadful error allowed Ante Rebic to send Croatia on their way to victory and into the knockout stage. “I am the one who needs to make the final decisions on these things. The key to our defeat lies with my responsibility,” said Sampaoli.“I had to devise a plan for this match. If I had set things up differently, things might have turned out much better. I don’t think it’s realistic to put the burden on Caballero.“I thought that we were going to put a lot of pressure on Croatia and put a lot of pressure on them in their part of the pitch. But after they scored we were emotionally broken and we didn’t have any footballing arguments to change the course of events.”Sampaoli only took over last year, becoming Argentina’s fourth coach in as many years.They only just qualified for the tournament in Russia, as a Lionel Messi hat-trick sealed victory in their final match of South American qualifying in Ecuador.The Barcelona great has been a peripheral figure so far in Russia though, while his old rival Cristiano Ronaldo has scored four goals in two games for Portugal.But former Chile boss Sampaoli says that Messi’s struggles are more down to the quality of his team-mates.“I think Cristiano is a great player, you can look at all he has achieved for his club and his country,” said the 58-year-old.“Right now we shouldn’t compare these two players. The reality of the Argentina squad clouds Leo’s brilliance. He is limited because the team doesn’t gel with him as it should. We as coaches need to realise these things and try to deal with them and I’m the one that needs to accept it.”Argentina, who are looking to lift the trophy for the first time since the Diego Maradona-inspired glory of 1986, haven’t been knocked out in the group stage since finishing behind England and Sweden in 2002.But even victory over Nigeria may not be enough, especially after two late strikes from Croatia midfielders Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic left them with a poor goal difference of minus three.“When you don’t have momentum it’s very difficult to move forward. Some of the players didn’t manage to play with my system,” accepted Sampaoli.“I’m very hurt by this defeat, but I probably didn’t set up my team in the right way.“We need to take advantage of this last (group) match, we need to fight for it and hope to get into the next stage.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
Re: “State to sue feds over Medicare” (Feb. 2): What could be better evidence that Medicare Part D is poor legislation that the fact that the states are suddenly paying millions of dollars more for Medicaid prescription drugs than they were paying when it was a state-run program? It’s a sad day when the federal government illegally forces the states to pay for a federal program, especially since it’s been a failure from the day it stated on Jan. 2, 2006. It’s clearly obvious that the current federal administration cares nothing about the poor and elderly in its effort to reward the health insurance and pharmaceutical industries for the lobbying money they have provided to its cohorts. – Melvin H.

This time he cannot understand why blacks and Jews are overwhelmingly Democratic. Could it possibly be that the Republicans are usually wrong when it comes to tax policies, government debt, attempts to destroy Social Security, cutting aid to the most vulnerable of our citizens, preventing the government from negotiating prices with the drug companies? I honestly could go on forever itemizing their faults. Apparently black Americans and Jewish Americans are a lot smarter than Sowell thinks and that is why they are Democrats. – Albert Cohen Sherman Oaks ‘Future date’? Re: “Unnecessary resurfacing” (Your Opinions, Feb. 1): Last spring, before the mayoral election, several of the streets in our neighborhood were resurfaced. On the day our street was supposed to be done, a sign was put up saying it was canceled and would be done at a “future date.” Although not as good as repaving, a resurfacing would have been very welcome on our horribly disfigured street. Needless to say, we have yet to see the “future date.” Alan Pollack is very correct with his observation that streets that are in excellent condition are kept up while others are left to get progressively worse. Is it who you know?

Kavanagh – having a good gameDUBLIN lead Donegal at half-time in the Allianz National League Division One clash at Croke Park this evening.The Dubs lead 0-05 to 0-04 at the break.Donegal captain Michael Murphy opened the scoring with a point in the 11th minute after a scoreless opening spell. But Donegal could have been three ahead only for a good save in third minute from Dublin keeper Michael Savage.Odhrán MacNiallais played Eoin McHugh but his effort on goal was stopped by Savage.Dublin scored three unanswered points, two from frees from Cormac Costello.Eoin McHugh, Michael Murphy and Rory Kavanagh were all yellow-carded by that stage. Éamon McGee reduced the deficit before Kavanagh, who set up McGee, took a score himself to tie the game at three points each with ten minutes to go.Kevin McManamon however went up the other end to hit his second point to give the Dubs the lead once again.Michael Murphy’s free came off the upright, but Paddy McBrearty levelled the game with a good point in the 32nd minute.Dublin then edged ahead just as the game edged into injury time through Ciarán Kilkenny.During the 5th minute of the game fans of both teams stood for a minute’s applause in memory of the five people who died in Buncrana last Sunday evening.

In an attempt to clamp down on illegal sale and smuggling of liquor in the State, the Haryana government has decided to set up an enforcement wing which will be headed by the Excise and Taxation Commissioner.State Additional Chief Secretary (Excise and Taxation Department) Sanjeev Kaushal said on Monday that though the department along with the police has been carrying out enforcement activities throughout the State, the setting up of an enforcement wing would go a long way in keeping a check on illegal sale and smuggling of liquor.Under the State’s excise policy for the year 2018-19, Mr. Kaushal announced an increase in the basic quota of country liquor from 950 lakh proof litres to 1,000 lakh proof litres and of Indian Made Foreign Liquor from 550 lakh proof litres to 600 lakh proof litres.Retail outlets“The number of retail outlets for CL and IMFL would remain the same as 2017-18,” he said.Mr. Kaushal said under the new policy, a licencee has been allowed to convert a maximum of 10% of his CL quota to IMFL quota. “The excise duty on CL has been increased from ₹28 to ₹44 per PL this year, whereas on IMFL it has been increased from ₹44-200 per PL to ₹49-210 per PL. However, there is no hike in the annual fee of bar licences in the form of L-4 and L-5 granted to restaurants and hotels of three-star ratings and above,” he added.Terming the year 2017-18 successful in terms of excise revenue, Mr. Kaushal said the State is expected to earn a revenue of ₹5,682 crore, including VAT, up to February this year. “The excise revenue of the State for the year 2016-17 was 11.71%, which has been increased to 13% in the year 2017-18,” he said.Mr. Kaushal added that the number of liquor vends has been brought down to 2,323.
A day after massive outpouring of criticism against the ruling Trinamool Congress for turning violent to stop the Opposition from filing nomination papers and targeting journalists, party chief and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has decided to go live on Facebook on April 24 evening.She is expected to take direct questions and provide an argument related to violence in the run up to State’s rural polls.She did live chat on Facebook earlier during the 2016 Assembly election. Ms. Banerjee has over 27 lakh ‘likes’ on her Facebook page.While the dates of the rural polls are yet to be announced, the nomination filing process was completed on April 23. Many of her Facebook followers have already posted comments on her page on various issues ranging from State’s development hurdles, the Trinamool’s role in national politics to poll-related violence in Bengal, following her announcement.

Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad, who is back from a recent visit to Jammu and Kashmir, on Monday said he would submit a report to the Supreme Court to highlight the plight of the common citizens caused by the “government-made disaster”. He claimed that “thousands of daily wage earners don’t have enough to eat”.Mr. Azad, who had gone on a six-day tour of J&K after being permitted by the top court, said an “environment of fear” prevailed there and alleged the “local administration was being used to repress people”.He said officers of the J&K administration intimated all those people who wanted to meet him and videographed all those who visited him at government guesthouses.“The government tried to make sure that people are not able to meet me. People were made to believe that they will be picked up and and locked in prison. And all those who came to meet me in government guest houses were videographed,” Mr. Azad claimed.Mr. Azad said nearly 50% of the population was engaged in handicraft, tourism-related occupations like operating houseboats and taxis and growing and transporting fruits; but since August 5, when the Centre diluted Article 370, business has come down to “zero”.“Only the very courageous came and met me. They were anyway starving, so they decided that it is better to speak up. I am not sharing here what they told me as they be picked up but I will tell the Supreme Court in my report,” he told reporters.He demanded that daily wage earners and workers be given free food by the government until they can earn their livelihood.“They don’t have anything to eat now. Initially, they were given food by their neighbours but it is difficult to do so for weeks together,” he said.Rejecting that the Centre’s claims that most of the restrictions have been removed, the former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister said normal life is still crippled with students not attending schools and educational institutions and majority of the markets remaining shut.
