By Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily Sports EditorThe Nelson Selects completed the season much like the team started — by winning the tournament’s top prize.Goals by Nigel Ziegler, Oscar Seagram and Quinn Dawson powered the Select to a 3-0 victory over the host side in the U12 Boy’s Division of the 13th annual Little Bear Youth Soccer Tournament Sunday in Revelstoke.Parker Shaw-Lintz played flawless in goal to secure the shutout.“It was a fitting finale to a great season,” said coach Paul Dawson, whose team won the opening tournament of the season back in May in Trail.“The boys got stronger every game and I thought we used the possession game that we worked on all year to great effect in challenging conditions.”Playing in slick, wet conditions, Ziegler opened the scoring for the Selects. Minutes prior to the halftime whistle and Nelson awarded a free kick near the penalty area, Ziegler took a quick kick, passing the ball to a wide-open Seagram. Ziegler’s teammate quickly buried the ball in the back of the net.Team captain Quinn Dawson converted the only goal of the second half to complete the scoring.“I thought Kieran Marchand and Jaydon Wouters, in particular, played their best soccer of the season in Revelstoke,” said Dawson.Nelson opened the Little Bear tourney outlasting Williams Lake 5-3.Ziegler led the Selects with a pair of goals with Marco Falcone adding a single.Brother Andrew Falcone was stellar between the pipes to keep the northern opponent off the score sheet.Nelson advanced to the final by blasting Castlegar 7-0. Seagram led the Nelson attack with three goals. Game captain Taylor Pritchard scored one of the other goals on a great individual effort.“Overall I was pleased by the development of their players over the season, both in their skill and maturity levels.” Dawson explained.“(Co-coach) Dino Falcone and I pushed them a little and entered the team in tournaments in Cranbrook, Kelowna and Portland at a higher age bracket.“Despite not winning against the older teams, the boys responded well and learned from these experiences.”firstname.lastname@example.org
Now it plays the Camp Nou, the 500th Levante match in Primera, where they have not yet been able to score in 17 visits.We face it as a challenge. In the end we still haven’t got anything positive out of there and why not. The equipment is needed. We have to get that pride and that claw and try to get something positive out of Camp Nou.Two just victories and one defeat and it seems that there is a crisis in Barcelona. Now, balm after the baggy victory in the Cup.Well, in the end they are teams that have the highest demands and at the minimum that have a stumble seem to be in crisis, but I think it is not. I think it’s even bad for us to play the other day in the League, but to get something positive we have to be very focused, focus on us and I already tell you that the team arrives with hurt pride and I think it’s a good time to get something out positive to give us that push. More than 100 matches in First and second maximum historical scorer of Levante in the category (26). Does your future plan go through making history or do you pose other challenges?In the end I have a contract here (until 2023), I am at ease, why not continue here for more years. In the end in the world of football you never know. Right now I am very focused on this season and, as I say, in football you never know what can happen but I am very calm.Have there been siren songs this winter market? Espanyol showed a strong interest in you in summer.Yes, I will not deceive you, yes there have been things. Espanyol himself seems to me that he was also quite interested now in January but, as I say, I am very focused on finishing the season here, on continuing to score goals, achieve collective goals. In football you never know but I have a contract here and I don’t want to leave.What seems clear is that the new market in Spain is going to shake this year.I like football and I like to be aware. Yes, it is true that there is movement of nine, the clubs are looking for the goal a lot and I already tell you that I am calm, I am focused and I do not think I move from here. One of those who has sounded loud is Chimy Ávila, seriously injured before Levante. What message do you send that knows what it is to go through that?The next day I wrote a message on Instagram. Because in the end I think it’s a whore that happens that injury the moment he is. I have lived it twice and wanted to send a message. He answered me very gratefully and, I tell you, above all I said that in the end they are injuries that make you learn, that fly by and make you much stronger. I wished him the best and he sure is going to do very well.Barcelona was looking forward. Do you think it is necessary?Well, in the end it is a team that, if not the best in the world, is one of the best. They will find a player that fits for sure. I think any ‘9’ would want to go to Barça.With players like Messi or Griezmann, do you think the figure of a forward is so urgent?I think so. In the end it shows when Luis Suarez plays and when not. I think it takes a lot of work for Messi and Griezmann and having a reference above. With the work that Suarez does, I think a fixed nine would do very well for Barcelona. Were you surprised by Setién’s choice for the culé bench?In the end, the football he practices is very similar to the Barça style. He already showed it with Betis and that is what he wants to continue doing in Barcelona. In the end the changes take a process and he is in that, sure that with the equipment he has it is much easier but the results will arrive. I hope it is not this weekend.Do you see any similarity with Paco López’s style?Well, perhaps in the fact of being daring, in giving value to having the ball and I think that in that sense they are quite similar. Perhaps Paco is a bit more vertical, with a more direct approach to his game and I think they have similarities, but there is a clear difference.How is your relationship with the master?With him it has always seemed that we have a somewhat tense relationship, but at no time has it been that way. I am a player of character and many times when I have not played because I have been noticed, but always with respect. I have continued doing my thing, I have continued to work and today the coach has my confidence and that is thanks to the work I have been giving the team and I want to continue giving, and I hope he continues to trust me. I have a good relationship with Paco and there is no more.When we talk about Roger, sometimes we reduce the analysis to the goal, when he contributes much more to the team.In the end what they see are the goals, but I think that behind me there is a lot of work. I think I work a lot for the team, I open spaces, I fight, I don’t give up a lost ball and then if I accompany it with goals, much better. But it is true that when there is a game in which you do not make it seems that you have made a bad game and I think that behind that there is a lot of work for the benefit of the team.How have they managed in the locker room the defeat in El Sadar and the Campaign error?I believe that, despite the defeat, we were reinforced because we had been asking weeks ago that the team lacked some intensity and character, and in a field like El Sadar we managed to get it out. Removing the campaign error, the team did a very good job and the most normal would have been the draw. It would have been a very good point for us and we would have won in confidence. We met the next day in the locker room, we told each other things, but they were things to reinforce because we did many things well. Campaign already saw that it was a mistake and that’s it, he knows the team is with him. It gives us a lot, it has to be controlled in those aspects but being 100% focused is an indispensable player. First, how is it?Very well, I find myself in a great moment personally. Yes, it is true that the team needs a victory on the collective level, but I am sure it will come soon. Nor have things started in the best way in 2020.Yes, in the end we are not going through a good moment in terms of results. But the team is still strong, we know that the victories will return and we must continue working. I tell you, we are not going to an ideal field to get something positive, but we arrive with enthusiasm and want to bring us a point at least.You, however, are at their best.Personally, it is very gratifying to see that your work is rewarded with goals. In the end I have always made goals in all categories: last year, in Second, with the subsidiary … Maintaining that continuity I will continue to give goals to the team and hopefully so.Top national gunner of the first round, now tied to goals (9) with Angel, from Getafe. Are you angry that you don’t talk so much about yourself?Maybe there are players who doing less are heard more. I have never had that luck. Doing a lot of work has cost me more for things to be recognized. I think I have been at a great level in Primera for two years, which is not easy. I scored 13 goals last year and this has been 9. Surely they will be more and I hope that I will continue to recognize that it is not easy to achieve goals in the First Division. In the end I keep doing my thing quietly and waiting for the fruits.
Starting XI Andre Blake Alvas Powell Michael Hector Wes Morgan Kemar Lawrence Adrian Mariappa Lee Williamson Je-Vaughn Watson Joel McAnuff Demar Phillips Clayton Donaldson Three changes have been made to Jamaica’s starting line-up as they get ready to face Haiti in a crucial CONCACAF semi-final round FIFA World Cup qualifier at the Stade Sylvio Cator in Port-Au-Prince starting at 7:00pm today. Blackburn Rovers midfielder Lee Williamson will make his second appearance for the Reggae Boyz, replacing captain Rudolph Austin, who along with striker Giles Barnes, opted to sit out the game, which is being played on an artificial surface due to the possible effects on their problematic knees. Clayton Donaldson (Birmingham City), who came on as a second half substitute in Jamaica’s 0 – 2 defeat to Panama at the National Stadium last Friday, will start as the team’s main reference point up front, with wide man Demar Phillips also coming into the starting 11. Adrian Mariappa will wear the captain’s armband in Austin’s absence. Haiti lost their opening group fixture 0 – 1 playing away to Costa Rica on Friday.
QPR boss Harry Redknapp has launched an astonishing attack on exiled attacker Adel Taarabt, claiming the Moroccan is “three stone overweight” and that he “could run more” than the 25-year-old.Taarabt has proven to be a divisive figure at Loftus Road since joining from Tottenham in 2008.Instrumental in the Super Hoops’ Championship winning campaign back in 2010/11, the attack was out of his depth in the top flight the following year and last season he spent time out on loan at Fulham and AC Milan. The Morocco international was widely expected to leave London in the summer, but failed to secure a move away and Redknapp has previously told him to forget a possible transfer and concentrate on getting fit.But following the dramatic 3-2 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday, the QPR boss went one step further and publicly ridiculed the unfit attacker and his dedication to the cause.Asked about Taarabt’s lack of Premier League action this season, Redknapp told his post-match press conference: “He isn’t fit. He played in a reserve game the other day and I could run more than he did.“I can’t protect players who don’t want to run about, who can’t train or are three stone overweight, getting 70 or 80 thousand pounds a week.”QPR twice looked to have earned a share of the spoils at the death against Liverpool only for a Steven Caulker own goal to gift Brendan Rodgers’ side the three points.And Redknapp added: “I’m gutted, absolutely distraught given the way we played today. We were just naive. We got a free-kick with one minute to go and to get caught on the counter-attack at that stage of the game, you don’t do it.“You organise yourselves behind it. You don’t get done and you don’t get beat.“To show that amount of character to come back and then to get nothing from the game is heartbreaking to be honest.“We didn’t get what we deserved today. We were fantastic today, we were the better team and we outplayed Liverpool.”
0Shares0000Fighting talk: Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has urged his side to fight back in the Premier League title race with Liverpool © AFP / Glyn KIRKMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Dec 31 – Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany admitted the Premier League champions’ pride has been wounded by a recent shock run of three defeats in four Premier League games to fall seven points behind league leaders Liverpool.But ahead of the visit of Jurgen Klopp’s men to the Etihad on Thursday, Kompany issued a rallying cry to the City squad and fans to keep fighting to become the first side in a decade to retain the Premier League. “We shouldn’t focus too much on points at the moment, we know if we can play to our potential we are a good team,” Kompany told City’s website.“Our pride has been hurt over the last few weeks but we have everything to play for and it depends on us.”City bounced back from consecutive defeats to Crystal Palace and Leicester with a 3-1 win at Southampton to move back into second above Tottenham.However, City have only won one of seven meetings with Liverpool during Pep Guardiola’s three seasons in charge.Kompany, though, called on his side to avenge a painful Champions League quarter-final exit to Liverpool last season.“It’s one of those key games you live for. Every living soul that comes into the stadium on Thursday has to be ready to fight and give it to them,” added the Belgian.“And we should be able to pull everything out of the locker for that game.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

DONEGAL TV sleuth Ciara Doherty might have caused some offence to our northern neighbours (and to quite a few on this side of the Border) in a TV3 show last night.The 29-year-old from Letterkenny took part in an investigation into cross-Border shopping for groceries.And while the investigation found that a 300 quid shop in the North saved just four euro – good news for business and jobs here in Donegal – it was some of her descriptions which might not go down too well. Referring to her shop at Sainsburys in Newry as part of the TV3 Midweek show report, Ciara revealed: “I didn’t hear as many Irish accents as you would have done a few years ago.”One donegaldaily.com reader in Derry (originally from Buncrana) asked: “Does that mean locals north of the Border have British accents?”He added: “The whole Midweek programme portrayed the north as if it was Germany or Outer Mongolia. It really was a Dublin view and we expect more from Ciara. Last time I checked Letterkenny was still 20 minutes from Derry. And yes – 80% of people in Derry and Newry for that matter are IRISH…and guess what…they have IRISH accents too!”And another reader emailed to say: “Good news that it’s just as cheap to shop for groceries south of the Border these days. But ‘Irish accent’s…really Ciara???
