BACOLOD CITY—There’s no shortage in belief and confidence from the Philippines even after a 1-2 setback to Vietnam in the first leg of their AFF (Asean Football Federation) Suzuki Cup semifinal tie.The Azkals were left undone by a combination of poor defending and Vietnam’s incisiveness as they conceded a goal in each half in Sunday’s match played before a crowd of 5,500 at Panaad Stadium here.ADVERTISEMENT No.13 lucky for Orlando Bloom The Azkals now have to pull off at least a 2-0 win in the Vietnamese capital to reach the finals for the first time.Captain Phil Younghusband believes they are capable of hammering out the feat.“We’ve seen bigger miracles in football,” said Younghusband. “It means that we now need to go for things in the second game and I think that will suit us better knowing that we have to go and score rather than sitting back.”“They’re a young team and I think we showed today that we can get at them and create chances and if we can stop them from scoring, we’ve got a chance so for me I think it’s all to play for—it’s a one-goal difference and I think we still have a chance.”The Azkals’ all-time leading scorer believes the way Vietnam was set up defensively made it difficult for them to break down the visiting side.But their lone goal, which came off a quick combination from Stephan Schrock, Jovin Bedic and a quality cross from Younghusband on the left, teed up Reichelt’s impressive finish.ADVERTISEMENT Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award MOST READ Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil View commentslast_img read more

first_imgDonegal is today wakening up to a much quieter day after the worst May storm in living memory battered the county yesterday.Repairs to homes and businesses are still ongoing after winds of up to 133kph ripped slates off roofs, uprooted trees and left live power-lines flapping about the countryside.Some homes are still without electricity after 10,000 homes across the county were left without power yesterday because of fallen lines. Late last night as many as 200 homes in the Letterkenny area were still without power but it is hoped they will be returned to normal supply this morning.Our picture shows Niall McDaid getting to the ‘root’ of the problem after a massive tree was blown down in his family’s front garden in Glancer, Letterkenny.Thankfully there were no reports of any serious injuries as a result of the storm which was named Udo by meteorologists.Some damage was caused to buildings as gusts of wind combined with heavy rain made conditions very dangerous in the afternoon. One group of students were not all that disappointed by the arrival of yesterday’s storm.Students at Colaiste Ailiagh in Letterkenny got home at lunchtime when a couple of roof tiles were blown off leading pupils to be sent home early as a precaution.There were several lucky escapes including motorists on the Doochary to Dungloe Road who watched in horror as a 40 ft steel container was blown across the road.Several roads leading into and out of a number of towns and villages including Muff, Killygordan, Convoy, Ballybofey, Creeslough and Malin were blocked for a number of hours due to fallen trees.During the height of the storm Met Eireann’s Sinead Ryan warned people that it was dangerous to go outside and advised them not to travel. Thankfully the forecast for today is for lighter winds and more rains.EndsTHE CALM AFTER THE STORM – DONEGAL BEGINS CLEAN-UP AFTER ‘UDO’ PASSES was last modified: May 24th, 2011 by StephenShare 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:donegalstormUdolast_img read more

first_imgPunjab pacer Siddarth Kaul has credited former India pacer Zaheer Khan for giving ‘useful tips’ which has helped him yield good results at the start of this Ranji Trophy season.Kaul returned with superb figures of 6/32 from 12.5 overs as hosts Delhi were bowled out for just 107 in their first innings against Punjab at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium on Wednesday.”These days I am working a lot with Zak Pa (Zaheer Khan). His inputs have made a huge difference in the first three Ranji games. Rohit (Sharma) told me to have a word with him and it has worked wonders for me. Zaheer has truckloads of experience and is such a legend, he knows exactly how to bowl on these wickets and shares his experience fully. I worked with him for four-five days in Mumbai and can already feel a huge difference in my bowling. Besides him, I also take Ashu bhaiya’s (Ashish Nehra) feedback regularly,” the 28-year-old from Chandigarh said in an exclusive chat after the first day’s play.2018 has been a memorable year for Kaul. He first made his T20 debut for India against Ireland in June and then earned his ODI cap against England at the Trent Bridge in July. A fast learner, having played five international games for India in two formats till now has made him a much wiser bowler.”Sharing stage with so many big players is always a great experience. Interacting with senior players helps brushing your skills and also gives a fair bit of idea about the important things that need to be done. I know now when I need to be relaxed and when to put in an extra effort. This has really helped me in my career and is the reason behind my comebacks in the national team.”advertisementKaul was part of the Virat Kohli-led Indian Under-19 team which won the ICC World Cup in 2008. Making his debut in the senior team under the same skipper has been a special moment for the fast bowler.”Having played junior cricket with Virat, I know him quite well. He is just like a brother and helps me whenever I need any inputs. But Mahi bhai (MS Dhoni) has been of a great help from behind the wickets. I keep on bombarding him with a lot of questions even now. The best thing about him (MSD) is that he tells you to keep things simple instead of trying way too many things. According to him, the style with which a player has got this far and now playing for the country should not be altered overnight. I follow his advice completely.”Also Read | Ishant Sharma trolls Australian journalist: Not every year I come hereAlso Read | Virat Kohli opts for gym session as rain washes out Day 1 of India’s Test warm-upAlso Read | Ashwin climbs to seventh, Kohli maintains top spot in ICC Test rankingsAlso watch –last_img read more
