Angel Di Maria says he considered retiring from Argentina duty when Lionel Messi did, after this year’s Copa America final defeat by Chile, but his family prevented him from doing so. 05/10/2016 CEST Di Maria told TyC Sports: “When Messi retired, I thought about doing the same. IN SPORT.ES Sport EN Di María pensó en imitar a Messi y dejar la selección argentina “You can lose a final, but three in a row, that’s something different.

Kerry Dyck, who lost a battle with cancer earlier this year, would have been very proud of his son after Jaden was named the recipient of the inaugural Hume Innkeepers Kerry Dyck Memorial Scholarship Tuesday at the Lakeside Pitch.“It’s a $500 scholarship given to a youth player playing in the men’s league based on soccer ability, overall involvement in the sport in Nelson as judged by all members of our team (Hume Innkeepers),” said Kevin Lewis of the Innkeepers. “We presented it to Jaden because of his soccer ability, leadership qualities and that he refs and coaches in Nelson Youth Soccer,” Lewis added.The money will be used for Dyck as he continues his post-secondary education.The Hume Innkeepers play in the Mallard’s Men’s Open Adult League with Oso Negro, Old Dogs and Dyck’s team, Nelson Youth Soccer Selects.Kerry Dyck, a graduate of L.V. Rogers High School, was a key cog in Nelson Youth Soccer for many years, coaching and serving on the executive. He was also coach and manager of the Hume Innkeepers for many years, helping the squad capture the 2017 Mallard’s Men’s Open League last fall.Kerry Dyck was also honoured last month by BC Soccer, claiming the Awards of Merit.Kerry Dyck was nominated by the BC Soccer Membership as well as the Board of Directors for recognition of contributions to soccer, during a period of ten or more years, as a player, manager, coach, official, or administrator at the club/league or district Level. The announcement was made during the spring by BC Soccer Association.
Prospective cloud customers – both consumers and enterprises – throughout Europe are wary of the possibility, however remote, that the contents of their cloud deployments may become open to inspection by government authorities. Not European governments, mind you, but American, by virtue of the Patriot Act. Passed into law before legislators ever pondered the prospects of virtual servers in the cloud, the U.S. law grants federal investigators authority, under court order, to ask service providers for information from and about their customers, for use in anti-terrorist surveillance.Leading U.K.-based telecom analyst firm Informa has been measuring the extent to which European carriers have been withholding their investments in cloud technology, in U.S. dollars. This morning, Informa released its findings, which indicate an almost crippling setback for the continent as it struggles to stay competitive with North America and Asia/Pacific.According to Informa’s figures, carriers worldwide invested about $13.5 billion in 2011 in technology and resources for delivering cloud services to their clients. Of that figure, North America and Asia/Pacific combined accounted for $12 billion, or about 90%. European carriers accounted for only 7% of the world’s total carrier cloud investment. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… This despite the fact that European carriers and telecom service operators, according to the Informa chart above, account for 24% of the global total number of operators providing service. Over time, that percentage too has been in decline.Ironically, one of the companies making the most headway last year in designing next-generation carrier-based cloud services has been France-based Alcatel-Lucent. The fear among European customers, including in France, is that once they deploy their services in a hybrid or public cloud, entire virtual machines could travel transparently over countries’ jurisdictions into the U.S., where federal regulators might gain the authority to peek into their contents. In a Bloomberg interview this morning, a security engineer with France Telecom articulated the fear of his own customers: “If all the data of enterprises were going to be under the control of the U.S., it’s not really good for the future of the European people.”As cloud service providers told me recently, a frequent request of Europe-based customers is that they make express guarantees in their service-level agreements that their data and virtual machines never be migrated to servers under U.S. jurisdiction. And as my friend and colleague Ron Miller reported last September, American companies touting the benefits of the cloud at European customers are met by resistance from would-be customers, some of whom say they would rather do business with Canada than the U.S.Amid the climate of fear, Informa reports, cloud operators in Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East are growing faster than in Europe, which may be painting a picture of itself as a barricaded fortress in an otherwise burgeoning market.

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde dodged questions about the club’s reported interest in Gremio midfielder Arthur, claiming he thought he was being asked about an actor.Arthur has been linked with Barca for several months after establishing himself as one of South America’s most promising young players during Gremio’s successful Copa Libertadores campaign last year.Reports of Barca’s interest initially began circulating in December when Arthur was photographed wearing the club’s jersey during a meeting with sporting director Robert Fernandez.

What’s his last name?”I thought he was an actor! He’s at another team. I’ve seen him, like a lot of others.”News rocked Spain on Thursday when it was confirmed a police officer died of a cardiac arrest during violent clashes between Athletic Bilbao and Spartak Moscow at the former’s San Mames stadium before a Europa League meeting.Although the officer’s death was not directly caused by physical trauma, it was pointed out by official statements that a flare thrown from a group of Russian supporters had landed near him just a few seconds before.Valverde, who coached Athletic before Barca, expressed his sadness at the situation and rued the fact some people use football as a “shortcut” to give other things “visibility”.”We’re all affected,” Valverde said. “Especially in my case, as it happened in Bilbao.”Football is there to be enjoyed, but there are people who use football as a shortcut to other things. It’s not a footballing problem, it’s just that that’s where it gets visibility.”
Lionel Messi ‘Best in history’ Messi lauded by Barcelona colleagues Coutinho & Busquets Iain Strachan 19:14 25/2/2018 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Images Lionel Messi Barcelona Luis Suárez Philippe Coutinho Ousmane Dembélé Barcelona v Girona Girona Primera División The Argentine produced a typically dominant performance during a La Liga mauling of Girona, drawing gushing praise from his Camp Nou team-mates Philippe Coutinho and Sergio Busquets hailed the performance of the “amazing” Lionel Messi in Barcelona’s crushing 6-1 La Liga victory over Girona.The Argentina international set up Luis Suarez for an equaliser after Girona had taken a third-minute lead, and netted twice himself, the second an inventive free-kick steered under the opposition’s defensive wall at Camp Nou.Coutinho, a January arrival from Liverpool, also supplied an assist for Suarez before getting on the scoresheet, and the Brazilian is already revelling in a productive relationship with his superstar team-mates.

We want to do the best we can.”

UEFA Champions League Italy just a stop on road to Kiev for Madrid & Barca Ben Hayward Last updated 1 year ago 20:47 16/3/2018 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(26) Getty UEFA Champions League Real Madrid Barcelona Opinion The two Clasico rivals were kept apart in Friday’s draw and will be expected to advance to the last four after the two were paired with Serie A sides The road to Kiev passes through Italy for Real Madrid and Barcelona. The two Spanish sides have won the Champions League three times apiece since 2009 and both will be considered favourites to advance to the semi-finals this time around after drawing Juventus and Roma, respectively.Real are 12-time European champions and have claimed the famous trophy in three of the last four years, including back-to-back successes under Zinedine Zidane over the past two seasons.Barca, meanwhile, have won the competition on five occasions and last lifted the coveted cup when they completed a treble in 2015, having also achieved a triple triumph in 2009 and then followed up with another victory in 2011.

Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Both of the Clasico rivals were handed tough draws in the last 16. Real, having finished second in their group, were paired with Paris Saint-Germain, while Barca faced Chelsea. In the end, however, the two teams prevailed with relative ease.On Friday, Real were drawn against Juventus in a repeat of last season’s final (which Los Blancos won 4-1 in Cardiff), while Barca face Roma for a place in the Champions League semi-finals. Both sides will be happy with the lot.Juventus, in theory, is a tough draw for Real. The Italian champions are one of Europe’s great teams, but this is an Old Lady that really is getting on, an ageing team that somehow found a way past Tottenham in the second round despite only being the better team for around 20 minutes of the entire tie.”Honestly, I feel Tottenham were superior for much of the tie,” Real legend Emilio Butragueno said after the draw. “But Juve showed their character to qualify. That says a lot about the winning mentality they have, like ours.”It did. Juve found a way to win, just like Madrid. And although historically Real have had difficulty against the Italian giants in the European Cup, Zidane’s side would appear to be in better shape following their recent return to form.“Real are concentrating on the Champions League,” former Juve midfielder Pavel Nedved said. “We will have more difficulty in that we are fighting on three fronts. It will be very tough but we’re ready to face this part of the season.”Meanwhile, Barca probably have the best draw of all in Roma. The Italian side edged out Shakhtar Donetsk in the last 16 and are way off the pace in Serie A title race this season, so even reaching this stage is a bonus.”We will face the best team in Europe,” Roma legend Francesco Totti said. “Barcelona will also be concerned at facing us. Roma has a very important and tough task ahead.”Perhaps. But it could have been much worse for both Barca and Real. The Primera Division pair managed to avoid Manchster City, Bayern Munich and Liverpool in Friday’s draw, while neither really wanted an all-Spanish tie against Sevilla.So, Italy should really be just another stop for the two Liga clubs on the road to Kiev and perhaps, a first Champions League Clasico since 2011.
While summer seems to just be getting started, the college football season is quickly approaching. If you consider the day after OSU’s bowl victory over Missouri the start of the offseason and its season opener the end, we are nearly 80 percent through our drought of college football.So with less than two months to go before that Friday night kickoff in Corvallis, Oregon, let’s look at the Cowboys’ Week 1 matchup with the other OSU and what storylines will rule that weekend.First, the particulars.When: Friday, August 30 at 9:30 p.m. CentralWhere: Reser Stadium, Corvallis, OregonWatch: FS1Line: Oklahoma State -16.5The Pokes and the Beavers will be the featured late night draw for night two of the opening weekend of college football. It will be the only Power 5-on-P5 matchup on either Thursday or Friday and, despite the late kick, all eyes will be on the Cowboys looking to rebound from an uncharacteristic single-digit win season.On the other hand, Oregon State, under first-year head coach Jonthan Smith, went 2-10 and 1-8 in the Pac-12 last season. The Beavers have totaled just nine wins over the last four seasons and haven’t gone bowling since 2013.1. Biggest Question (It’s the Obvious One): Who Takes Snaps at QB?The answer to this question will likely be answered publicly before the Cowboys head to Corvallis, but we’ll get our first chance to judge the coaches’ decision on that Friday nightcap.Spencer Sanders, the assumed (or at least wished upon) savior of the program, or Dru Brown, the seasoned vet with two year’s worth of experience at the DI level?We’ve looked at this race from every angle we can thing of — and will have come up with a dozen more by the end of August — but this is a huge year for Mike Gundy and OSU. Normally they go as their QB does.This will be a huge game because, if nothing else, we’ll get our first look at the Cowboys offense and how Sean Gleeson and his QB can mesh and lead it.2. Who Else Will be Taking Snaps?The other OSU is also looking at a fall camp QB competition. Jake Luton was granted a sixth year of eligibility after missing chunks of both the 2017 and 2018 seasons due to injury. The 6-7 passer came was granted a medical hardship waiver and has his eye set on retaining QB1 duties. But he’ll have to fend off sophomore Tristan Gebbia, the former four-star Cali QB who transferred to Oregon State from Nebraska.3. A Deep Receiving CorpsYes, the [insert year] Cowboys return a deep and talented pool of receivers ready to put up boocoos of yards. But I’m, again, talking about the other OSU.Oregon State returns 11 of 12 receivers from a year ago including tight ends. The group is headlined by junior Isaiah Hodgins and senior Trevon Bradford. The 6-4 Hodgins led the Beavers with 876 yards, 59 catches and five scores in his breakout sophomore season, and the dynamic Bradford chipped in 649 on 56 catches with six TDs of his own.4. What Kind of Test Will OSU Provide?We were quick to bemoan Oklahoma State’s 2018 defense — and mostly with good reason — for several head-scratching losses. But the other OSU has been a leaky sieve as of late.In 2017, Oregon State’s defense ranked fourth-worst over the previous 14 seasons in S&P+ rating among Power conference teams. But last year’s Beaver D regressed even further, logging the worst S&P+ rating from any major conference since 2004. Last year’s Beavers defense ranked ahead of only the 1-11 UConn Huskies in both scoring defense (45.7 points per game) and total defense allowed (536.8 yards per game).That means that whoever starts at quarterback for OSU will get his debut against the returning worst Power 5 defense over the last 15 years. So if Spencer Sanders slings it for 500 yards and combines for six TDs, we will all need to do our best, however futile it may be, to temper expectations moving forward.
