Forde keen to face Germany

first_img Forde said: “At the end of the day, that’s about being a footballer and being a goalkeeper. You have got to box those things off and put them to the side. “That’s what gives you longevity in the game, that you can go and actually do that. “That’s what gives you the opportunity to keep going and to keep playing the game for so long, because this game is ruthless, so you have got to be able to do that. “That’s part of being a footballer.” At a time when his England counterpart Joe Hart finds himself in the spotlight after a series of high-profile errors, Forde knows it is the lot of a goalkeeper to go through testing spells. However, he knows the dark times can prove invaluable in the long run and is confident both he and Hart will bounce back. He said: “We have all been there and it’s not a nice place to be. But these things make you stronger as well, especially as a goalkeeper, and I am sure Joe will come back better, stronger and a better keeper for it.” Keiren Westwood suffered one of those night’s in October last year when Germany headed for the Aviva Stadium and left Dublin having trounced Ireland 6-1, although little blame could be attached to the Sunderland man. David Forde will have no qualms about attempting to keep Germany at bay despite conceding nine goals in his last two games. Forde was on the bench for that game, and he is well aware how tough a task he and his team-mates face on Friday, albeit one to which he is looking forward. He said: “It’s going to be a difficult task. They are a world-class side and they could possibly be up there as being the best in the world at the moment. “But we have had a really good record over the years away from home. We know what they did to us at home, so we have got to restore some pride. “The lads are going to be looking forward to the challenge ahead and it’s going to be a good occasion. “It’s a fantastic platform to play football on. You are going to a world-class footballing nation and you have got a chance to go and show what you can do. “It’s one I am actually looking forward to – that’s if I play. It should be a busy night.” Press Association The 33-year-old Millwall keeper will hope to retain his place as Ireland’s number one for Friday night’s intensely difficult World Cup qualifier trip to Cologne with the Group C leaders looking to secure their passage to Brazil 2014. But if he does, he will have to put to one side the bitter memories of a 4-0 Sky Bet Championship defeat at Birmingham last Tuesday and the 5-2 thrashing at Bournemouth which followed just four days later. last_img

Fletcher, Ambris carve half centuries to give Volcanoes win

first_imgCMC – West Indies players Andre Fletcher and Sunil Ambris carved out half-centuries in a pivotal century partnership as Windward Islands Volcanoes won for only the second time this season with a two-wicket victory over Jamaica Scorpions.Starting Sunday’s final morning at the National Stadium here on 51 for three in pursuit of 225 for victory, Volcanoes overhauled their target thanks to 71 from Fletcher and 56 from captain Ambris.Together, they posted 105 for the fourth wicket but more importantly, denied Scorpions that vital early strike they needed in order to get at Volcanoes’ brittle lower order.Fletcher, a white-ball specialist, struck 10 fours in an innings lasting 141 balls and nearly three hours, after resuming the day unbeaten on eight.On two overnight, Ambris showed his class in a 75-ball knock decorated with seven fours.Ambris was largely untroubled by the Scorpions attack until he skipped down to off-spinner Jamie Merchant (2-39) in the fifth over before lunch and clipped a simple catch to his opposite number John Campbell at mid-on.On 161 for four at lunch, Volcanoes benefitted from two key partnerships after the break to get up to their target.Fletcher put on 31 for the fifth wicket with wicketkeeper Emmanuel Stewart (22) who then added a further 34 for the sixth wicket with Keron Cottoy (24).There was some late drama when Stewart was caught at short- leg off Merchant with 11 runs needed for victory, triggering a slide that saw three wickets tumble for four runs in the space of 22 deliveries.But Kenneth Dember (three not out) kept his head to see Volcanoes over the line.last_img

Ervin Philips out 3-4 weeks; updates on Josh Parris and Rob Trudo

first_img Published on September 12, 2015 at 5:38 pm Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+ The injury bug continued to nag Syracuse after starting tight end Josh Parris left the game in the first quarter with an upper-body injury and did not return.He jogged off the field with a team official late in the first quarter after logging one catch for 9 yards, a pass to the left side from Eric Dungey on the first drive of the game.In the locker room after the game, offensive coordinator Tim Lester walked by Parris and asked him how he was doing.“I’m fine coach,” Parris responded, as Lester giddily imitated him.“I think he’s good, from what I’ve heard,” Lester said. “I’ll find out the truth tomorrow.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textErvin Philips to miss 3-4 weeksHead coach Scott Shafer announced that hybrid Ervin Philips will miss 3-4 weeks after having a scope procedure done on his meniscus.“They felt really good about it,” Shafer said. “It was actually real good news for me. He’s in good spirits.”In Philips’ absence Saturday, Ben Lewis had one rush for 17 yards and freshman Dontae Strickland had a catch for 12 yards. Philips is now likely to miss the game against Louisiana State in two weeks.Rob Trudo updateFifth-year senior center Rob Trudo also left the game with an injury in the fourth quarter. After a Wake Forest defender crashed into Trudo’s left knee at the end of a play, Trudo collapsed to his back before being surrounded by trainers for about a minute.He ended up walking off under his own power, but didn’t re-enter the game.“I think (he’s OK), from what I’ve heard,” Lester said. “He was dancing around on the sideline at the end.”Lester also added that with Syracuse holding a comfortable lead late in the game, the most important thing was getting off a clean snap. Backup center Jason Emerich is “great” at that, Lester said.“We figured, why put (Trudo) back out there when we’re just snapping at the end,” Lester said. Commentslast_img

Ashley Young given six-month driving ban

first_imgManchester United and England footballer Ashley Young has been banned from driving for six months.The 28-year-old was handed four penalty points after he admitted speeding at 71mph on a 50mph section of the M6 Toll in Warwickshire in March last year.Warwick Magistrates’ Court heard he already had nine points on his licence for an earlier speeding conviction.Young’s solicitor argued the road had been “quiet” at the time of his latest offence.The winger was handed six points in January after he admitted driving at 100mph on the M62 in West Yorkshire, and three points for an unspecified offence in 2011.Young’s Range Rover Vogue was captured by a speed camera near the M6 Toll’s junction with the M42 at 10:00 GMT on March 7, the court heard. Late pleaHe was fined £3,000 for the offence, ordered to pay £405 costs and a £120 victim surcharge.Defending, Frances Coles-Harrington criticised a Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) application for £405 costs.”Just because Mr Young is who he is, £405 for an indication of a guilty plea – if it was another member of the public here today, they’d be hit with the usual application for £85 costs for a guilty plea, not £405,” she said.But prosecutor Naila Iqbal argued that Young’s late plea – entered one day before the trial started – meant the CPS had incurred costs preparing evidence. “So, whether it is Mr Young of Manchester United or a member of the public, the costs would have been the same,” she added.Paul Tasker, chairman of the bench, told Young: “If you drive while disqualified you will be committing a serious offence and you may be sent to prison and disqualified again.”last_img

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen has a plan to avoid heart problems in Denver

first_img“It’s all contingent upon (Thursday) but we’re more leaning toward having two rehab starts,” Roberts said. “That’s kind of where we’re at now. The world changes every day but that’s kind of our plan.”Kershaw was sidelined by shoulder inflammation early in spring training. The left-hander received a cortisone injection and could not recover in time to extend his streak of consecutive Opening Day starts to nine. The rehab start will be his first outing outside of an intrasquad simulated game.ALSORich Hill (sprained left knee) threw from flat ground and remains on track to pitch off a mound Saturday in Denver. Afterward, the left-hander reported improvement when throwing from a slide step, a source of impingement earlier in the week. … The probable pitchers for the three-game series in Denver: right-hander Kenta Maeda will oppose left-hander Tyler Anderson on Friday; right-hander Walker Buehler will oppose right-hander Jon Gray on Saturday; left-hander Julio Urías will oppose right-hander Chad Bettis on Sunday. … Sunday’s game (5:30 p.m. PT) will be broadcast by ESPN and will not be blacked out in Southern California. Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES — Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen has a smartphone application that helps monitor his heart rate. When he flies to Denver on Thursday with his wife Gianni, separately from the rest of the team, he’ll be checking the app closely. He will continue to take the blood pressure medication he’s taken the last nine years. He’ll avoid high-sodium foods. He will chug a one-liter jug of water five or six times a day like he always does – no more, certainly no less.“Trust me,” Jansen said, “I’m peeing a lot already. I don’t need to pee anymore.”This is how the 31-year-old pitcher plans to avoid a recurrence of the irregular heartbeat that sent him to a Colorado hospital last August and eventually led him to undergo an ablation procedure in November.Jansen was hospitalized on Aug. 9, 2018, the first day of a four-game series in Denver. He flew back to Los Angeles the next day and didn’t pitch again until Aug. 20. Jansen’s would-be replacements went 1 for 5 in save opportunities in the meantime; the team went 4-6 and fell from first place in the National League West to third. When Jansen returned, it took him five appearances before he could complete an inning without allowing a run. How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco center_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies That was the third time Jansen has experienced an atrial fibrillation episode during a trip to Denver. The “Mile High City” sits at a higher elevation than any major league ballpark, and altitude-related complications are common. Needless to say, Jansen and the Dodgers are motivated to avoid another incident.“It’s still a little nerve-wracking because it’s in the back of your mind somewhere,” Jansen said. “But you’ve just got to go and stay positive.”In theory, the ablation procedure should have reduced if not eliminated any risk. During the procedure, a catheter is passed to the heart and radiofrequency energy is used to destroy a small area of tissue causing an irregular heartbeat. Jansen had a similar procedure after the 2012 season.Dr. Koonlawee Nademanee, the cardiologist who performed both procedures, urged Jansen to visit Colorado in the offseason to test his heart at elevation. Jansen declined.“I wanted to spend Christmas and all the good holidays, all that good stuff, with your close ones,” he said. “I know I’m going to be (in Colorado) anyway.” Jansen said he’ll use Thursday as a day of no physical activity. A pregame cardio workout is planned for Friday, “make sure you get your heart elevated and see how it goes,” he said.If it doesn’t go well, Manager Dave Roberts has a contingency plan in place.“As long as he feels good we’re going to run him out there,” Roberts said. “If something unforeseen does happen, guys have got to step up. We acquired Joe (Kelly) to be able to finish games if we need to. His first couple outings haven’t been ideal, but he’s a guy that we’re going to lean on. You do have to prepare for sometimes the unplanned-for situation, but we’ll be ready.”KERSHAW UPDATEClayton Kershaw is targeting four innings and 60 pitches during his rehabilitation start for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday, Roberts said. Depending on his efficiency, Kershaw might throw another inning in the bullpen afterward.And then?Related Articleslast_img
