Luka Modric could already be Ballon dOr winner says Dejan Lovren

first_imgCroatia star Dejan Lovren said that if Luka Modric was Spanish or German he may have already have won a Ballon d’Or award.The 32-year-old Modric scored a superb goal in Croatia’s World Cup win over Argentina and netted a penalty against Nigeria.

He would maybe even be a Ballon d’Or winner.”Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have shared the Ballon d’Or for the last 10 years, winning five apiece but Davor Suker was second in the 1998 voting after the former Real Madrid striker won the Golden Boot as Croatia finished third at the World Cup.Luka Modric, Real MadridReal Madrid suffer a Luka Modric injury blow Andrew Smyth – September 12, 2019 Real Madrid have announced that Luka Modric has suffered an adductor injury, which could rule him out of some key fixtures.Modric joined the Spanish giants from Tottenham and has gone on to win the Champions League four times, La Liga once and the Copa del Rey once.“It is a real pleasure to play with Luka Modric,” Lovren added.“We are all football lovers and we know Modric is an incredible player.

At kung merong kababalaghan, parurusahan naman ang mga responsable,” he said.“Ang importante lang, masiguro na itong desisyon ng pagdi-dismiss ay nakabase po sa ebidensya at kung hindi, gagawa po ng hakbang ang awtoridad para matuloy ang kaso,” he added.The Palace official likewise pointed out that the dismissal of the case against Lim, Espinosa, Co, et al would not affect the drug charges filed against Senator Leila De Lima, stressing that there are other witnesses who are willing to testify against her.“Hindi naman po kasama dito sa kasong ito si Leila De Lima. So, iba po ang basehan ng pagsampa ng kaso kay Leila De Lima,” Roque said, adding that the Supreme Court has already found probable cause in the complaint against the senator.Furthermore, Secretary Roque assured the public that the President remains committed to end the drug menace in the country and go after all personalities involved in the illegal drug trade.“Huwag po kayong maabala, siguro naman po walang kaduda-duda na seryoso ang ating Presidente dito sa giyera laban sa droga,” he said.Release: Presidential Communications Operations Office                Republic of The Philippineslast_img read more

Quintero gives River Plate a historic Copa Libertadores

first_imgAn absolute screamer from the Colombian in extra time against Boca Juniors, gives River Plate the Copa Libertadores at the Bernabeu.After so much drama during the last couple of weeks with the Copa Libertadores final, Sunday finally arrived with Boca Juniors and River Plate playing a very anticipated match at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid.The tension was quite evident after so much talk that was barely related to football, the loser from today’s match would live with that stigma of losing this final against the hated rival forever.The stadium was filled with people who were impatiently waiting for the match to begin, many football personalities attended this match and watched it from the VIP rooms inside the Bernabeu.People like Antoine Griezmann and Lionel Messi were spotted in there as none of them wanted to miss this final. Even a Juventus contingent attended the match with Cristiano Ronaldo nowhere to be seen, but Dybala and Bentancur were part of that expedition.All the players who were playing the match didn’t seem comfortable, having this final in the city of Madrid was already pretty weird in the first place and it was going to have to take a little getting used to.Both squads started this match with a 2-2 aggregate after the draw from the first match at La Bombonera, both sides were literally starting with no advantage.¡ASÍ FUE EL GOLAZO DE BENEDETTO!#LibertadoresxFOX El ‘Pipa’ recibió un pase magnífico por parte de Nández y con mucha clase, definió ante la salida de Armani para el 1-0 de Boca.Revive la definición del examericanista desde nuestro #AnguloFOX pic.twitter.com/oJX9Lxu68c— FOX Sports MX (@FOXSportsMX) December 9, 2018The first half was a huge reminder of how massive the difference between European and South American football really is, with several interruptions in this match and much less fluidity throughout the whole 90 minutes.The first half was more dominated by Boca Juniors and their ability to prevent River Plate to create spaces and link passes in midfield, they were waiting for a lost ball to get a chance that could give them the initial advantage.This moment came near the halftime whistle, as skipper Pablo Perez recovered a ball, served it to Nandez and the Uruguay international saw Dario Benedetto making the move for a pass between the lines.As soon as ‘Pipa’ intercepted the pass from Nandez, he only needed a single touch to position himself alone in front of the goalkeeper and bury his shot to the right bottom corner.Boca Juniors was winning it thanks to another crucial goal scored by Benedetto, ‘Pipa’ had now scored in both semifinal matches and both of the final games.The second half would be more fluid for the fans, for River Plate as well.¡PRATTO LO EMPATÓ CON UNA GRAN JUGADA!#LibertadoresxFOX Una pared entre ‘Nacho’ Fernández y Palacios terminó con un centro atrás para que el ‘Oso’ consiguiera la igualada.Revive la jugada desde el #AnguloFOX pic.twitter.com/yzEWIT9ucRRiver Plate v Boca Juniors - Copa CONMEBOL Libertadores 2018Match Preview: River Plate vs Boca Juniors Boro Tanchev – September 1, 2019 It is time for one of the most intense derby games in the world, as River Plate and Boca Juniors go head-to-head tonight at 22:00 (CET).— FOX Sports MX (@FOXSportsMX) December 9, 2018The ‘Millonarios’ took control of the ball during the second half, they were able to control the ball for extended periods of time and managed to create more opportunities due to how tired the Boca Juniors players were.After several opportunities in which River was denied by the defense, a chance finally appeared for Lucas Pratto before the 70th minute, in which he was able to finish a collective effort in which Exequiel Palacios produced an exceptional skill that gave Nacho Fernandez the chance to assist Pratto.Lucas scored his fifth Copa Libertadores goal in this fashion, he became the tournament’s top scorer with this one.It was only fitting that the world’s longest football final in history would go to extra time, fortune was better for River Plate as Wilmar Barrios got booked for a second time at the start of the first extra time and left Boca Juniors with 10 players.This advantage was all that River needed, the critical moment of the night came from Colombian Quintero’s left foot in the form of a potent screamer from outside of the box that went in through the top corner for River Plate’s goal that gave them the trophy.At the end with Boca playing with 9 after Fernando Gago’s injury, Martinez sealed the result with an easy goal with no goalkeeper to stop him.River Plate is the worthy and historic Copa Libertadores champion after beating Boca Juniors 3-1 (5-3 ag.).❤ ¡Impresionante zurdazo y GOLAZO de Quintero! ❤Lo gana River#CopaLibertadores2018River 2-1 Bocapic.twitter.com/bC2n9hHTNb— MedioTiempo (@mediotiempo) December 9, 2018¡RIVER SENTENCIÓ!#LibertadoresxFOX Ya sin portero, Gonzalo Martínez hizo el 3-1 definitivo, que le da el campeonato al Millonario pic.twitter.com/vpdtZZF85K— FOX Sports MX (@FOXSportsMX) December 9, 2018What did you think about the whole drama of this Copa Libertadores final between River Plate and Boca Juniors?

Dyche Solskjaers United are playing with freedom

first_imgSean Dyche has praised Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for turning around the fortunes of Manchester United since joining the club.United struggled under Jose Mourinho, who was sacked in December. But Solskjaer has won eight consecutive games in all competitions.As Burnley set to face United on Tuesday, Dyche is wary of confronting a rejuvenated United side.“From the outside looking in, it seems like he has just tried to loosen a little bit and put more freedom on it,” Dyche told a news conference via FourFourTwo ahead of the trip to Old Trafford.“A bit more energy seems to have come back to the players. I think that’s a skill in itself. I think possibly that is what he has done; he has just given a different feel to the group in his own way.“But I think they have responded and they are delivering good performances. It seems there is a little bit more spark – not massive tactical changes, but just that spark within the group.“I am not questioning Jose Mourinho, I think he is an absolutely incredible and top manager. [Solskjaer] has just changed that feeling in the group, coming in, and they have responded.”Vokes has been linked with Stoke City and Dyche said of the Wales international’s situation: “Who knows? I would expect [he will stay] but we are a business, not just a football club. Both have to be in balance.“We have had varying signs before with people interested in our players and it doesn’t surprise me that people are interested in our players, that is just the way it is.

Lewis said she agreed to impose probation rather than prison time because the record indicated Peck’s son was “psychologically and emotionally abusive” to his father, in addition to taking account for Peck’s age and frail physical condition, having recently suffered broken hips and heart attacks.Robert “Robbie” Peck was going through a divorce and had moved in with his dad about three months prior to his death, Peck’s attorney, Douglas Gilliland, said. Within those 90 days, the defendant feared for his safety, calling police twice, the attorney said.He was told by police that it was a family matter and they didn’t want to get involved, according to Gilliland, who said the defendant’s housekeeper was also “terrified” of his client’s son and wanted to quit.Abusive acts dictated by the court included Robert Peck shoving a rag soaked in dog’s urine into his father’s face, throwing objects at him, and disabling his father’s phone.Robert Peck,  described by Lewis as an “extreme alcoholic” who had a .39 blood alcohol content at the time of his death, also told his father that he “was almost dead, that he had no purpose to live” and that he “needed to die of natural causes so (Robert) could inherit his money,” the judge said.The day of the shooting, Robert Peck smashed his father’s telephone and told him, “I’m going to see you again” as he went off to bed, Gilliland alleged.The attorney said the most assistance Peck was able to receive was a 72-hour psychiatric hold on his son, after which he immediately returned to Peck’s home and the abuse continued, prompting another call to authorities just a week later.The defendant’s family had been trying to intervene for some time and were unsuccessful in trying to get Richard Peck to spend some time away from San Diego in Athens, Georgia, Gilliland said.The nonagenarian was arrested the evening of Nov. 14 after going to a neighbor’s house in the 2300 block of Juan Street and telling her that he had just shot his son, according to police. Officers arrived moments later and found the victim dead in his father’s residence.Gilliland said that Peck remains “extremely remorseful” for what happened and “lives with this every day.” The attorney said that Peck is a victim, but accepted the plea agreement because he “feels like he wanted his day in court, but at the same time understood the risks of going to court and the resulting state prison commit.”In addition to home confinement, Peck is required to pay about $4,800 in restitution to pay for his son’s funeral costs.Peck is also being sued by his son’s estranged wife, Annette, and her son, in a wrongful death suit for somewhere in the “tens of millions of dollars,” according to Gilliland, though he contended that he didn’t know how they arrived at that amount “considering the wife had filed for divorce, having locked Rob out of the house and he really had no meaningful contact with the family.” Posted: March 28, 2019 KUSI Newsroom Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img read more
