It said: “CAF in partnership with Speak Up Africa have launched a social media challenge to further raise awareness on proven COVID-19 prevention methods as part of the Stay Safe Africa campaign“The new online challenge forms part of the Stay Safe Africa campaign, which seeks to empower communities and individuals to take simple and proven preventive measures to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in Africa.“Stay Safe Africa, launched by Dakar-based advocacy tank Speak Up Africa, brings together partners to work towards a common goal of saving lives by increasing investments and awareness to protect our continent.“This new threat will ensured access and treatment from other ongoing health threats.“As part of the challenge, influential players are inviting their peers and everyone to participate in the challenge by recording a video of them doing 19 kick ups and sharing it on social media. “To date, African football legends Ahmed Hassan (Egypt), Perpetua Nkwocha (Nigeria), Joseph Yobo (Nigeria), Karim Haggui (Tunisia) and Trésor Lomana Lualua (DR Congo) have shared videos.”The statement added that CAF Deputy General Secretary, Anthony Baffoe, has also participated in the challenge, as CAF lends its influential voices, clubs and legends to the campaign to help protect one billion Africans from COVID-19.Yacine Djibo, Executive Director of Speak Up Africa, said: “In Africa, there are currently over 157,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases and over 4,000 deaths.“Several risk factors mean the virus can spread quickly across the continent.“A coordinated Africa-led approach to stop the spread of COVID-19 is crucial, as high population densities, communal living and the constrained access to water and washing facilities all increase the likelihood of coronavirus infections and fatalities. “We are thrilled to have CAF’s influential players and members taking part in this exciting social media challenge and raising awareness of the importance of protecting yourself and others from COVID-19.“Sport is a powerful tool to transform the continent, particularly when it comes to health initiatives.“We encourage everyone to take part in this online challenge to raise awareness and incite positive change in health practices and behavior.”Tags: African LegendscafCOVID-19 CampaignJoseph YoboPerpetua Nkwochasocial mediaSpeak Up Africalast_img read more

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill: We need to keep this momentum going

first_img “It’s important we keep this momentum going,” Cahill told Chelsea TV. “It was (important) for a number of reasons. First and foremost and the most important one was for the Champions League and to make sure we put ourselves in a position to try to qualify top. “But as well to build the momentum off the back of the Norwich result and keep building these wins and try to gather these wins to turn this around. “It was important for a lot of reasons and very pleasing.” Chelsea are likely to be without John Terry against Spurs after the captain suffered an ankle injury on a pitch boss Jose Mourinho described as “dangerous”. Ramires also suffered an injury on the eve of the encounter, ruling the midfielder out of the matchday squad. The full extent of the injuries is likely to be determined by scans, while Mourinho will have work to do to inspire Diego Costa back to form after the pair’s half-time bust up in Haifa. The absence of Terry may hinder the Blues, but they have 48 hours’ additional preparation time than Spurs, returning from Israel on Wednesday as their rivals flew out to Azerbaijan for their Europa League clash with Qarabag, which takes place on Thursday. Sunday’s 1200 kick-off time has irked Mauricio Pochettino, whose side have lost three times in 18 games in all competitions this season. Chelsea sit 10 points and 10 places behind Spurs in the Premier League. “We’ve got this week to prepare for the Tottenham game,” Cahill added. “They’re playing very well at the minute. I’ve no doubt it’ll be an entertaining game and one where we’re hoping to be on the end of right result.” Chelsea’s defeat of Norwich ended a three-match losing streak in the Premier League and the win over Maccabi leaves Chelsea certain of qualification for the Champions League last 16 if they beat Mourinho’s former club Porto at Stamford Bridge on December 9. Porto lost at home to Dynamo Kiev, who play Maccabi Tel Aviv in the final game and could also qualify, with the Israelis eliminated. “We knew at half-time they (Kiev) were leading so it meant it was even more important for us,” Cahill added. “We knew, if we won, it would be in our hands at Stamford Bridge. So bring it on.” It was Cahill’s goal which began a rout which materialised only late on as 10-man Maccabi made Chelsea work for victory. Willian’s free-kick goal and late headers from Oscar and Kurt Zouma, who is likely to replace Terry in the starting line-up, completed the win. The reeling Barclays Premier League champions followed up last Saturday’s 1-0 win over Norwich with a 4-0 Champions League victory at Maccabi Tel Aviv which leaves their Group G fate in their own hands. A truer test of their resurgence will come at White Hart Lane, though, where Chelsea lost 5-3 on New Year’s Day. Press Association Gary Cahill hopes Chelsea can gather momentum from claiming consecutive wins for the first time in two months into Sunday’s London derby at Tottenham. last_img read more

Bono’s 7 saves help Syracuse past Duke in ACC tournament quarterfinals

first_imgAlex Bono dove to his left as he tipped Bryson Asher’s knee-high shot out of bounds in the 28th minute.Then he stood up, repositioned his feet in preparation for a corner kick and adjusted to block away Brian White’s header just a few seconds later.Bono, who had posted 11 shutouts in 17 games this season heading into Sunday, rose to the occasion when another clean sheet was in jeopardy.“He’s just a presence back there,” SU head coach Ian McIntyre said.In No. 1 Syracuse’s (15-2-1, 5-2-1 Atlantic Coast) 2-0 shutout of Duke (9-9-1, 4-4) in the quarterfinals of the ACC tournament at SU Soccer Stadium, Bono had to do most of the diving. In a season where he has been the captain of defense that he says has made his job easy, this shutout was in large part thanks to him and his ability steer SU through some tense first-half moments.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBono’s seven saves — five in the first half — were a season high during a win. The Orange’s seven goals allowed in 2014 remain tied for a Division I best.“When we call upon him, he’s always there to make the save, which we need,” senior defender Jordan Murrell said. “(The defense) can’t always stop every shot, but we try our best.“Bono kept a clean sheet again today, and we kept a clean sheet. We’re very happy.”In the first minute of the game, though, Bono was almost caught flat-footed. Brody Huitema headed a ball off a cross right off the crossbar. Bono didn’t move or jump, and the Blue Devils were inches away from running out in front.On the next offensive possession, Huitema fired a shot to the bottom right of the goal, but Bono had the ball slip past him and stay in play.Sandwiched by SU goals scored by Alex Halis and Nick Perea, the Blue Devils had seven opportunities to get on the board in the first half.“You’ve just got to keep your focus through that time and hope that we’ll get back on top of the game,” Bono said. “But there are times in the game when they’re on top of us, but we just have to weather it and get back on top.”Syracuse eventually took control of the game in the second half. It had most of the possession, and took nine of the 13 shots. But after Bono made his seventh and final save of the day in the 52nd minute, the fans that packed the hill behind his goal started chanting his name.Bono, as he has all season, refused to take credit for the shutout — the 30th of his career — and said that his clean sheet on Sunday was indicative of what the defense has done all year.“That’s what this team’s about,” Bono said. “Laying your body on the line for everyone else on this team. That’s what I’d do for any one of my teammates and that’s what I’d hope any one of them would do for me.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 9, 2014 at 4:46 pm Contact Sam: sblum@syr.edu | @SamBlum3last_img read more

3 takeaways from Syracuse’s 21-14 season opener win against Colgate

first_imgJamie Trimboli gave a slight shrug to his teammates as he stood up from the Carrier Dome turf. He’d just fallen to his knees after a dodge but still beat the Colgate goalie to make it 18-12 for Syracuse. Unlike last year, Syracuse avoided an upset at the hands of Colgate, holding the Raiders off, 21-14, to start the season on Friday. Chase Scanlan scored seven goals in his Syracuse debut as the new No. 22, and the Orange could seemingly do no wrong, never relinquishing the lead after a little more than 10 minutes had been played.  Here are some takeaways.Shots galore In the first quarter, any opening, even for just half-a-second, meant a Syracuse shot on offense. The Orange outshot Colgate 20-13 in the opening frame but scored just four goals. SU’s shots went high and wide or right into the midsection of the Colgate goalie. Last weekend, North Carolina took just 10 shots in the first quarter but led 7-0 at the end of it. Syracuse toned down its shooting rate and took smarter looks from the second quarter on. The shots came from closer and less from on the run. The Orange didn’t capitalize backside as much as UNC did against the Raiders, but ball movement, which was preached by the coaches before the season, became a focal point when Syracuse set up in the offensive zone.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFor the game, SU outshot Colgate, 65-44, and reached UNC’s total of 42 with 14:09 left in the fourth quarter. Last year, the Orange averaged 43.8 shots a game and had 36 against Colgate in the 2019 season-opener.  Midfield madnessSyracuse’s first four goals were all off broken plays or in transition, and that came as a result of forcing turnovers and picking up ground balls at midfield. Chase Scanlan would be the beneficiary multiple times throughout the game. First, Lucas Quinn found him backside with no defender close enough to make a play after a quick stop-start left Colgate unprepared. Then, Colgate’s Marshall Terres was met by Scanlan and two other Syracuse players when trying to clear, and going the other way, Scanlan found open space to the left of the cage before showing his quick hands in a one-on-one situation with the goalie. The early run was instrumental in giving the Orange a 4-3 lead at the end of the first quarter while their half-field offense stuttered. In the second half, Griffin Cook dislodged the ball from a Colgate stick, and Stephen Rehfuss picked it up. Scanlan was ahead of the play, this time with a defender back, but it didn’t matter. He bounced it past the goalie for his fifth of the game. Scanlan got his seventh, again from Cook, but this time when an errant pass to the Colgate goalie was snagged by Cook and fed out to the new No. 22. It was an impressive debut for Scanlan, and much of it came from what the midfielders and his fellow attack did on the ride. No Mellen, some problemsNick Mellen went down with an apparent lower body injury about seven minutes into the third quarter with Syracuse leading 13-8. He was able to limp off the field but did not return the rest of the afternoon. The defense without him gave up six more goals with one coming on a man-down situation. But Brett Kennedy, who’ll shift around depending on the game per head coach John Desko before the season, stabilized the new group of close defenders.Grant Murphy proved a capable close defender, knocking the ball away from a Colgate midfielder on one play and taking it upfield in transition immediately after. Kennedy did the same on another play in the fourth quarter and nearly scored on a give-and-go but couldn’t catch the pass back to him. All three new defenders looked good all game, hardly getting beat one-on-one. It’ll take time for the slides to perfect themselves. But for now, even if Mellen’s injury keeps him out for a couple of weeks, Syracuse’s defense is in good hands, especially against nonconference foes.   Comments Published on February 7, 2020 at 6:29 pm Contact Arabdho: armajumd@syr.edu | @aromajumder Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Shelly, Donald Sterling on witness list when trial resumes Monday

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error When Shelly Sterling took her turn on the stand, she filled the role of dutiful wife as she detailed how she negotiated the $2 billion sale of the Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer — and added that Donald had been aware of the entire process.Judge Michael Levanas ruled that Shelly Sterling’s attorneys, Pierce O’Donnell and Laura Zwicker, will not be called to the stand, saying it was “highly disfavored” for opposing counsel to testify except in extreme cases and that he was unswayed by arguments from Donald Sterling’s attorneys.Talking by speakerphone on Friday, Donald Sterling attorney Gary Ruttenberg said the trial had been “railroaded on a bullet train” and that he needed to put Shelly’s attorneys on the stand to make his case about a “Secret Plan B” to defraud his client.Clearly annoyed, Levanas said that both sides agreed beforehand to try the case within three to four weeks.He also denied Ruttenberg’s request to exclude testimony from Drs. Meril Platzer and James Spar, who examined Donald Sterling in May and began the process for him to be removed as trustee. Though Ruttenberg argued again that the testimony violated Donald Sterling’s privacy rights under HIPAA, Levanas said the law does not grant him authority to exclude. Levanas also ruled out from the witness list an unnamed UCLA expert in HIPAA compliance. Shelly Sterling could be called back to the stand next week. There’s a chance her husband, Donald, could as well.The testimony of the two Sterlings seized headlines last week as their probate trial to determine control of the Los Angeles Clippers started July 7 and ran through its first four days. It will resume Monday at 9 a.m.Both were listed on Donald Sterling’s updated witness list, filed Thursday and discussed in a procedural hearing Friday.Contending that his wife did not have the authority to sell the NBA franchise he has owned since 1981, Donald’s combative testimony last week veered from his vow to sue the NBA until he dies to accusations that a doctor who found him mentally incapacitated was drunk during the exam. He also called his wife a “pig” from a seat in the courtroom.center_img Others who might testify include attorney Douglas Walton, who drafted a May 22 letter from Donald Sterling authorizing Shelly to negotiate a sale, and Lawrence Kallett, a friend of Donald who was present following his examination by Platzer.At the end of the hearing, Ballmer’s attorney Adam Streisand stressed to Levanas that an Aug. 15 deadline loomed for his client to close the deal with Shelly Sterling.“It’s a whole bunch of nonsense,” Streisand said outside the courtroom after the hearing. “There’s nothing here but delay, delay, delay.”last_img read more

United States team overwhelms Puerto Rico to win World Baseball Classic

first_imgLOS ANGELES — Team USA manager Jim Leyland arrived at his pregame press conference Wednesday afternoon, looked at the crowd of reporters and said, “we’re trying to make America great again.”What the U.S. accomplished by beating Puerto Rico 8-0 in the championship game of the World Baseball Classic was less cliché and more tangible: It compelled fans and players alike to care about a tournament that began, for the U.S. at least, as a mere exhibition back in 2006. “For the most part, up until this point, the other countries were probably into this event a little bit more than the United States,” Leyland said. “But in talking to our players, I know they’re going to spread the word. I’ve had some players already tell me this is the greatest experience of their life.”The announced crowd of 51,565 was divided in its loyalties but united in anticipation of a close game. Both semifinal games were decided by one run — Puerto Rico beat The Netherlands 4-3 and Team USA beat Japan 2-1.Once Angel Pagan doubled to break up Stroman’s no-hitter in the seventh inning, the championship featured less suspense than any game played this week in Chavez Ravine.Stroman, a right-hander for the Toronto Blue Jays, was removed after allowing the double to Pagan. He walked one batter, struck out three, and was generally masterful in denying solid contact. Not including Pagan’s hit, Puerto Rico put only three balls in the outfield against Stroman all night.“I was confident. I was locked in,” Stroman said. “Luckily we came out with the ‘W’.”When Leyland took the ball from Stroman, the pitcher shot a few glances at the Puerto Rico dugout before nodding to the cheering crowd. It was a subtle reminder of the complex loyalties at stake in the tournament.By virtue of his heritage, Stroman was eligible to play for either Puerto Rico or the United States. His mother, Adlin Auffant, is Puerto Rican. His father, Earl, is a police detective in Long Island. When he announced on Twitter in December that he would pitch for Team USA, Stroman included the mea culpa, “sorry momma.”Some Puerto Rico supporters did not accept the apology and trolled Stroman’s mother directly on social media. The Puerto Rico lineup seemed plenty motivated last Friday, when Stroman started for the United States and allowed four runs in the first inning of a 6-5 loss. The rally felt more ominous because Puerto Rico’s dugout emptied to celebrate each run as if it was Game 7 of the World Series.But in this, the real winner-take-all championship game, Stroman had the upper hand from the outset. He was chosen MVP of the tournament. But Stroman said that beating Puerto Rico added no extra meaning to the victory.“Each and every guy came in with a goal, and that was to win it,” he said.Kinsler provided a minor source of controversy himself. After Tuesday’s game, he said “I hope kids watching the WBC can watch the way we play the game and appreciate the way we play the game as opposed to the way Puerto Rico plays or the Dominican plays.”Kinsler was merely expressing hope that the American players’ passion would rub off on its fan base. Perhaps it did. Commissioner Rob Manfred said that the WBC set ratings records on MLB Network for non-playoff games; the near-sellout crowd at Dodger Stadium provided an electric atmosphere that was audible on television.The United States got contributions from top to bottom. All nine of its starters reached base and eight collected at least one hit. Christian Yelich (2 for 5) singled to drive in Kinsler (2 for 5) in the fifth inning, then scored on a single by Andrew McCutchen (2 for 4). In the seventh inning, the U.S. rallied for three runs with two outs. Brandon Crawford’s bases-loaded single drove in Nolan Arenado and Eric Hosmer. Giancarlo Stanton added an RBI single of his own to provide the final score.The U.S. batted around in the seventh inning, highlighted by Brandon Crawford and Giancarlo Stanton’s RBI singles.Sam Dyson, Pat Neshek and David Robertson each threw a scoreless inning to complete the shutout.Of all the teams in the tournament, Leyland said, “I thought we had the best pitching staff, starters and relievers, and I think that proved to be true.”The U.S. allowed 17 earned runs in eight tournament games, finishing with a 2.15 ERA.Leyland dedicated the Americans’ win to the country’s military personnel twice after the game. The second time, his voice cracked. The 73-year-old manager, now a special assistant for the Detroit Tigers, said he had no plans to wear a baseball uniform again after the tournament. After failing to advance past the semifinals in 2006, 2009 and 2013, Team USA won consecutive do-or-die games against the defending champion Dominican Republic and two-time champion Japan. It then played a flawless game against an all-star laden Puerto Rican squad that hadn’t lost a game in the tournament. Team USA starter Marcus Stroman threw six innings without allowing a hit. Ian Kinsler’s two-run home run in the third inning against Puerto Rico starter Seth Lugo began the rout. The U.S. tacked on two runs in the fifth and three in the seventh to put the game out of reach.In the end, the United States did not need all of its best players to win the tournament, or even to fill Dodger Stadium to the top of the upper deck in March. center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
