Reggae Girlz remain positive

first_imgDespite losing their debut against Brazil 0 – 3 in the FIFA World Cup, the Jamaican national soccer team, the Reggae Girlz, remain positive as they prepare for their next game against Italy on Friday June 14. In an interview with the Jamaican Observer  most of the girls admitted nerves and inexperience caused mistakes on the field, but said they will learn from these mistakes, and remedy them in time for Friday’s game.Jamaica’s star player Khadija “Bunny” Shaw, 22. who did not have a particular exceptional game on Sunday against Brazil, said that more and better is to come from the Jamaicans.Gave best effortShe said the game didn’t go as the team planned. “Brazil is a great team and we are the less experienced, but we don’t focus on that we know that once we cross that touchline we are just as good. Obviously, it’s not the result that we wanted but we worked hard for each other and we gave it our best effort.“We didn’t know what to expect and now we can see that this is the reality, so going into the next game we should be more relaxed and just play our game. So hopefully coming the next game I can keep working and improve from this,” said Shaw.Focusing on next game “Obviously we are going to go back and look at the film and see where we went wrong and hopefully we can talk about it as a team and put this game behind and focus on the next game against Italy,” she added.Playing at the World Cup, as the first Caribbean team to do so, Shaw said, should give Jamaicans something to believe in, especially given the country’s limited resources when compared to their more illustrious opponents.Welcome crowd support Shaw and the rest of the Reggae Girlz were pleasantly surprised and welcomed the support from large number of Jamaican fsns who were among the 17,668 spectators who attended Sunday’s game. Shaw said the crowd support was particularly motivational as it underscores the team isn’t just playing for themselves but for Jamaica and Jamaicans.last_img read more

first_imgPicture courtesyScientists have called upon the African governments to increase investment in Science and technology in order to overcome poverty in the continent reports Xinhua.The Scientists stated that the African governments focused on achieving agenda 2063 which aims at developing science, technology and innovation to accelerate the socioeconomic development in the continent.“African governments should consider investing massively in science and technology in order to achieve tangible social and economic transformation on the continent,” said Gertrude Ngabirano, executive secretary of East African Science and Technology Commission (EASTECO) during the first annual regional science and technology meeting in the Rwandan, Capital Kigali.Agenda 2063 to Africa is learning from the past, building on progress and strategically exploiting all possible opportunities available to ensure positive socioeconomic transformation in Africa in the next 50 years.Africa is blessed with rich resources but due to inadequate knowledge in science and technology, resources remain largely unexplored leaving Africa in poverty.“In the developed world, countries that have invested in education, science and technology have managed to break the cycle of poverty,” said Ngabirano.Africa can tap into the global technology evolution if the science, technology and innovation received proper funding.“Africa still lags behind other regions of the world when it comes to the development of science and technology but it can be overcome with clear vision, commitment and firm determination,” said Ignace Gatare, Director General of Rwanda National Commission of Science and TechnologyThe critical challenges facing the development of science and technology in Africa, including low science and technology capacity, low investment in research, poor infrastructural development and a lack of access to helpful scientific ideas.last_img read more

Watford ‘won’t yield’ in demands for youngster, work needed for move

first_imgThroughout this summer we’ve brought you various updates on the future of Watford youngster Cucho Hernandez. The 20-year-old spent the past two seasons at Huesca where he scored 20 goals in 70 games and earned plenty of plaudits.He’s set to spend next season on loan once again and there are several suitors for him in La Liga, with Real Betis particularly keen.Earlier this month Estadio Deportivo claimed he was equally keen to head to the Benito Villamarín as, out of all of his offers, that’s the one that ‘most thrills’ him.There’s been no mention of the transfer progressing since then and Estadio Deportivo explain why that’s the case.According to the newspaper, Betis coach Rubi approved the transfer, having worked with Hernandez at Huesca in 2017/18 and Betis were happy to push for a move. Watford, though, are making things complicated.The Hornets have ‘high expectations’ over a transfer and will only contemplate a sale if they are getting a big price to make it happen. They’ll also consider another loan but in that case, they’re refusing to put a purchase option into the deal.It seems neither of those situations suit Betis and until Watford loosen their demands in either regard a transfer seems unlikely.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Today begins the long-awaited barrages in the First League. From 20:00 at the capital’s stadium “Slavia” will play the Danube, which took 12th place in the “group of masters” and the third place in the Second League Montana.In the Danube the problems are big and a loss can end the existence of the team. The players were ready to boycott today’s match, but at the last moment they received one salary each and decided to travel to Sofia and play for their honor and for the fans. After the victory against Tsarsko Selo, the temporary coach Tsvetomir Mladenov, who is in a similar situation for the second year, promised that his boys will do their best on the field. The team shows decent football and only the worse goal difference than Botev (Vratsa) during the regular season deprives it of direct salvation. Mladenov will be able to count on all the best for today’s clash. He tactically managed to keep some of his starters in the last match with Vratsa.Montana’s condition is an enigma. The team has not played an official match since March and played two controls with strong opponents in which it could not score. The loss of the champion of the Second League CSKA 1948 with 0: 1 can be called prestigious, as well as the zero draw with the resounding selection of Pirin.The fact that everything will be decided in one match promises a tense battle until the last minute. Since the Danube barrages were introduced, Montana has been a regular participant. The Danube is being saved for now, while Montana is still missing its chance to enter the elite.Lyudmil Kirov: It is hard and miserable on the Danube if it remains in the elite“I wish success to the players, I hope they keep their status”last_img read more
