This is Facundo Pellistri, the great talent of the 21st century that Real Madrid follows

first_imgInterest in Facundo Pellistri is further evidence that the Real Madrid The South American market is controlled to the millimeter. The Peñarol player is one of the most important appearances of Uruguayan soccer in recent years. In addition, the good result it has given Fede Valverde further motivates the club to get closer to a boy who just turned 18 years and whose evolution seems unstoppable.He gave his first touches in La Picada FC. Then he continued to train in River Plate of Montevideo, where his talent began to flourish above the rest. Peñarol, more attentive than the other greats in the country, signed it at just 11 years old. The choice was perfect for him: he has grown in the lower categories of the Aurinegro club, he has burned stages very quickly (he played with the youth players since he was 13), and that confidence has now transferred to the first team. Idol in Peñarol with 18 yearsPellistri debuted in August 2019, 17 years old, under the orders of Diego Lopez. It took just three games to earn a place in the eleven. The shirt of a giant like Peñarol did not weigh an iota, being one of the best in the final stretch of the season. With the arrival of Diego Forlan On the bench last December, his weight in the team has increased. The former Atlético de Madrid forward, now a coach, has given it the ‘10’ and has worked with the board to close its recent renewal until 2022, despite the interest of other great clubs. At the signing, the desire of ‘Facu’ (as they call it at home) to play the Libertadores Cup. As this newspaper reported, Two giants from South America like Boca and Flamengo have already knocked on their door.His maturity on a playing field is the same as that shown on a daily basis. Facundo he just finished high school and his intention is to continue studying, either at the university or by taking another type of training. He also wants to improve his English (he has the Cambridge First Certificate approved), in another demonstration that he has his feet on the ground.Although his youth invites him to think that he will have to continue training to get to Real Madrid (he could be on loan or at Castilla), the feeling is that a bright future awaits him. Due to talent and character, he has everything to succeed in white. This is a footballer used to playing on the right wing, although with a tendency to move around the attack front. Its main virtue is driving. He is able to make rhythm changes with the ball stuck to his foot. Further, he has the technique and the balance enough to withstand the onslaught of hard Uruguayan football, and the clarity to provide solutions between the lines. Not to mention his concentration on the game and work for the team, always attentive to help in the defensive phase.last_img read more

LIMERICK BOSS – “FRIDAY’S MATCH WAS A HORRIBLE GAME AND THE PITCH WAS SHOCKING”

first_imgLimerick FC manager Martin Russell has blasted the state of the playing surface at Finn Park – and described Friday’s match as a horrible game of football.Russell was left stunned, as teenage sensation BJ Banda netted a late, late goal in extra-time to send Finn Park into euphoria. It was nothing more than Harps deserved, who displayed passion, discipline, determination and quality during the game.A goal from Michael Funston sent the game into extra-time, before that boy BJ secured legendary status for himself with his powerful header which sent Harps into Premier Division.However, a disappointed Russell was left bemoaning the state of the playing surface at Finn Park – and the type of football on offer.Russell told The Limerick Leader, “It was a horrible game. It was a game full of stop-start, free-kicks, long throw-ins. The pitch was shocking, soft, very difficult, the ball bobbling over peoples feet. It made it difficult in many ways. “We had a couple of chances that we should have taken. If you look back to the Markets Field game in the first leg with the amount of ball we had, we needed to finish off a few more chances. But it didn’t happen for all those reasons as well.“We just fell short. I am just as gutted as anybody.“Look, maybe it was meant to be for them this time round. We congratulate them on their efforts, but it is hard to take from a Limerick point of view.“I genuinely believe the players would have had a lot to offer the Premier Division next year. But we have to take stock now and see what is best for the club.“It’s a case of looking to get back (into the Premier Division) as soon as possible and building on what the Markets Field has to offer, the support, the potential of the club that can take it to another levelRead more: http://www.limerickleader.ie/sport/limerick-sport/limerick-fc-boss-russell-left-gutted-by-relegation-1-7054429#ixzz3qzfuDl7M LIMERICK BOSS – “FRIDAY’S MATCH WAS A HORRIBLE GAME AND THE PITCH WAS SHOCKING” was last modified: November 9th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:newsSportlast_img read more

Wall St. comes back after unenthusiastic jobs report

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! NEW YORK – A late rally gave Wall Street a modest advance Friday after a lackluster employment report left investors wondering about the pace of economic growth and inflation. The major indexes each gained more than 1 percent this week. While October’s job creation figures fell short of expectations, they signaled that the economy is weathering the blows dealt by hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The Labor Department said U.S. employers added 56,000 jobs last month, half the 100,000 increase projected by economists. Investors also focused on September’s job loss, which was scaled back 27,000 jobs to just 8,000, suggesting that the hurricanes’ impact was less than feared. But a downward revision to August’s figure indicated that the job market may have been weaker than previously thought before the hurricanes struck, said Christopher Piros, director of investment strategy for Prudential’s Strategic Investment Research Group. Piros also said that while payrolls have expanded by 48,000 from August to October, the growth came from a 52,000 rise in temporary employment and a 45,000 gain in construction jobs.

DD Fitness: How Lent can help with your goals

first_imgWe have entered the season of Lent.Over the next 6 weeks millions of Christians will commit to fasting or giving up certain types of luxuries a form of penance.Lent is traditionally described a fasting for 40 days in commemoration of the 40 days that Jesus spent fasting in the desert. This is something that most people who set out on can complete.Their faith is the driving force behind their goals and this faith is what keeps them on track when things get inevitably difficult during the 6 weeks of abstinence.In a normal situation, when someone sets out on a goal, quite often the goal is never reached. The difficulties that arise can be their downfall and lead them off course and eventually into giving up.Why is it then that when it comes to Lent, people seem to have more will power? It is because of their faith. With this, they have something that is greater than their wants and needs. When you abstain from something to achieve a goal, the goal must be greater than the pull of what you are abstaining from. If it isn’t, you will inevitably fail.During lent, the goal is to follow what Jesus did, and to abstain for the 6-week period.The thought of straying from this, the guilt of failing during this time and the sense of achievement that they have carried out something for their faith and for God is enough to keep most on track. This can be used to your advantage during this time.If you normally struggle with goals, Lent could be what helps you to succeed this time.> You will have a reason greater than what you are abstaining from> You will have likeminded people who are starting similar journeys.> You have a reason that people WILL NOT question. Once you say why you are abstaining, there are no questions asked.All 3 of these combined, will increase your chances of success tenfold. So, get started, find support and use these next 6 weeks to break habits, achieve goals and finally find success.#TrainSmartIf you would like help with this over the next 6 weeks, I am taking new members for my Lean in 2018 program.It starts on Monday and we have limited spaces left on it. So why not use Lent to your advantage and let us help you. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Fitness/120518884715118* Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe Fitness LTDDD Fitness: How Lent can help with your goals was last modified: February 18th, 2018 by Emmet RusheShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:emmet rushefitnesslentweight losslast_img read more

first_imgSANTA CLARA – Tuesday’s quarterback auditions at 49ers headquarters fell incomplete, so to speak, as no one immediately got signed.Thus, C.J.

FLOWERS FOR LOVE Pkt of 5 Clear Combs – Sparkle all the way

first_img Very good service and product is good. Very pretty and also strong. Theses are very pretty and well made. Great quality and look good too. As expected, a bit flimsy though. These combs are lovely to put in your hair for a special occasion and are surprisingly strong. I’m extremely pleased with the way they were packaged and delivered on time ( to italy). Bought for a wedding and was asked several times how too purchase. Average quality for price, could have probably made them myself. Very pretty ideal for weddings. They are what i expected so they have a 5 star. Don’t expect anything too fancy but they are cute. Evry thing very googthank you. Combs ok but not very strong. The seller despatched very quickly though so gave good service. Very good value and very pretty.

Size 7cm x 5cmRating 1.0 / 5  stars, based on  30  reviews Posted on April 24, 2018Author Nathalie DuboisCategories Hair Comb SlidesTags FLOWERS FOR LOVE These are quite strong for hair combs and look very pretty when i want to hold my hair up, or off my face etc. They’re attractive without being gaudy and with 5 in a pack, they’re very reasonable. I’d looked everywhere for pretty hair combs but tesco, boots etc only have boring brown or black plastic and very plain. I can’t imagine why they think we all want dark combs in our hair when these are so pretty and catch the light. They are practical and attractive and do stay put in my hair which is curly but very soft, so i’m very pleased with them. I wish they did them in blue and green etc to match different outfits. I bought these to bling up my hair to a wedding. I wore them alongside a bun they were fab and i highly recommend. These are neutral so you can use them with any coloud. Fix in my hair perfectly, i have very fine hair but lots of it. Very reasonably priced and pleased with these combs.

Nikhat Zareen Asks for Fair Chance as BFI President Backs Mary Kom for Olympics Qualifier Without Trial

first_imgKolkata: Asian Championships bronze medallist Nikhat Zareen cried foul on Wednesday after the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) hinted that there would no trial between her and Mary Kom in the 51kg category for participating in the Tokyo Olympic qualifiers in Wuhan from February 3 to 14.BFI president Ajay Singh told reporters that Mary Kom, could possibly be their automatic choice for the China event. And that hasn’t pleased the youngster looking to make a mark. “Today morning I got to know that the President had told the media that there would be no trials,” Nikhat told IANS.”Anyone can win any day. It’s boxing. I am not saying send me, but give me a fair chance. I will try to talk to them (BFI). They said before that only gold and silver medallist at the Worlds will automatically be selected for the Olympic qualifiers but now they are changing that rule for even women,” she said.Six-time champion Mary Kom settled for the bronze in the Women’s World Boxing Championships after losing her semi-final bout of the 51-kg flyweight category to second-seed Busenaz Cakiroglu of Turkey in a split 1:4 verdict.Ahead of the Worlds, BFI had a selection policy for both the men and women boxers which said all the medal winners (gold, silver and bronze) in the men’s section at the Worlds will automatically be picked for the Olympic qualifiers, without having to undergo trials.However, for the eves, the criteria was only applicable for gold and silver medallist winners at the Worlds.”Now in December we have Nationals, again I have to go through the grind. Then if there are no trials, what is the use of all these competitions. No use right?” questioned the 23-year old boxer.Asked about her next course of action, Nikhar said she will approach sports minister Kiren Rijiju after trying to contact BFI President Singh several times.”Everything is in President’s (Ajay Singh) hands. I am trying to contact him but he is not responding. I tried so many times. I will try to contact our Sports Minister and ministry also, then let’s see what happens. If all this happens I cannot focus on my game,” she said.The BFI did not let Nikhat participate against Mary Kom at the trials for the Worlds, back in August also. Chairman of selectors Rajesh Bhandari had said that her bout wouldn’t take place just to ensure that she is protected for the future and not exposed at a young age in the World Championships.The move had come as a rude shock for both the boxer and her father who had travelled from Hyderabad to the national capital for the trials for the championship to be held in Russia in October.”My father will do everything. Last time he came to Hyderabad to watch my trials and then we were told there would be no trials. He felt so bad. Now, again the same thing is happening after Mary Kom won bronze. I am feeling bad for my father,” said Nikhat. Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak.
