first_imgThe president of first division club, LISCR FC, Mustapha Raji was last Sunday certificated by the Logan Town Oldtimers Association, LOSA, for his invaluable contribution to the development of football in Liberia.The award was presented to Raji at the end of three-weekend’s football tournament to honor one of LOSA’s members, Kelvin M. Bayoh for his support to the team.LOSA president Adolf Lawrence, (Rep. District 15), told a gathering of oldtimers at the Unity Conference Center sports ground that the certificate is to encourage Raji for his services to the youths of Liberia.“We recognize your role in the development of Liberian footballers,” President Lawrence said, “and we thought it our duty to remember this.”Lawrence reminded the gathering of Raji’s exceptional contribution to Liberian youths and felt that he deserved some recognition.“Mustapha’s selfless interest in the development of young footballers is extra-ordinary,” Lawrence said, amid cheers. “This certificate must serve as a reminder of your support to Liberian youths in the area of football.”Responding, Raji said he was overwhelmed by the recognition and assured LOSA of his continuous support to develop Liberian football, through the youths.“Youth development demands a lot of material and financial sacrifices,” Raji also reminded his audience, “but if Liberian football must improve beyond what is now, then we must join together as a team.”Presenting the Kelvin M. Bayoh Friendship Trophy to the Ghanaian Community Oldtimers Football Club, who defeated Clara Town Oldtimers (1-0) in the finals, Raji commended them for their victory.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Lukaku raises his arms aloft in front of the Old Trafford stands as Paul Pogba runs to celebrate with his new team-mate.MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Aug 13 – Romelu Lukaku introduced himself to Old Trafford in triumphant fashion with two goals as Manchester United crushed West Ham United 4-0 in an impressive Premier League opener on Sunday.The Belgium striker, a £75 million ($97.6 million, 82.5 million euros) signing from Everton, struck either side of half-time to take his tally of goals against West Ham to 11 in his last 11 appearances. Substitute Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba added late goals that gave a true reflection of United’s dominance and sent Jose Mourinho’s side to the top of the early-season standings on goal difference.United join Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur on maximum points and while West Ham offered scant resistance, the early signs suggest Mourinho’s men will not end the season 24 points off the pace again.While Lukaku took the headlines, Nemanja Matic also enjoyed an assured home debut following his £40 million switch from Chelsea and there were strong showings from Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford as well.West Ham manager Slaven Bilic, who gave league debuts to Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez, will hope for better when his side visit Southampton next weekend.Having opened his account in Tuesday’s UEFA Super Cup loss to Real Madrid in Macedonia, Lukaku now has three goals in two United games.He might have been able to celebrate his first league goal even sooner.Mkhitaryan’s pass freed Juan Mata and when the Spaniard’s shot was blocked by West Ham goalkeeper Hart, he squared the ball to Lukaku, but the 24-year-old could not get a shot away.– Rashford hits post –Mata’s darting runs into the box were bringing United joy and he almost broke the deadlock when he raced onto Pogba’s clever dinked pass and slipped a shot past Hart, only for Angelo Ogbonna to hack clear.United’s pressure told in the 33rd minute thanks to a move started and finished by home debutants.Matic had already seduced the home fans with his awareness and coolness on the ball and he sprang a United counter-attack by racing out to block an attempted pass by Pedro Obiang.Picking up the loose ball, Rashford tore into the West Ham half and slid a pass into the box for Lukaku, whose first-time shot clanged off the left-hand post and nestled in the side-netting on the other side of the goal.While United old boy Hernandez endured a thankless first half on his return to Old Trafford, Andre Ayew threatened an equaliser in stoppage time with a rasping drive that David de Gea had to parry.Lukaku picked up where he had left off in the second half, first releasing Rashford to run through and shoot wide and then doubling his tally in the 52nd minute.Former Manchester City stalwart Zabaleta’s foul on Rashford gave United a free-kick on the left and from Mkhitaryan’s cross, Lukaku stole between Winston Reid and Arthur Masuaku to plant a header past Hart.Arnautovic served a reminder of West Ham’s threat with a header that De Gea was obliged to tip over, but it seemed only to redouble the home side’s determination to stretch their lead.After Rashford had left the right-hand upright shuddering with a curler from the left-hand apex of the area, Mkhitaryan released Martial to coolly tuck away United’s third before Pogba swept in the fourth from 20 yards.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img 11 Right-back: Nathaniel Clyne (Liverpool) – He’s moved forward into a wing-back role now Brendan Rodgers has tinkered with his formation once again. He did well on the flank both defensively, with four tackles, and offensively, as he looked to feed the ball into Daniel Sturridge. Goalkeeper: Brad Guzan (Aston Villa) – OK, the Villans might have lost, with the American conceding three, but he also put in a brilliant display. Guzan made nine saves during the match and denied Daniel Sturridge a hat-trick after stopping an excellent Philippe Coutinho free-kick. Left winger: Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) – Watch out defenders, the Chilean is back and he means business. The 26-year-old was in scintillating form for the Gunners against Leicester City as he got himself a hat-trick. 11 Right winger: Erik Lamela (Tottenham) – His time at Spurs almost came to an end in the summer when a move to Marseille nearly went through. Now he’s looking like a different player with some excellent recent performances. He made a fool of stern-faced Serbian Aleksandar Kolarov on Saturday and played a big role in two goals, while scoring Tottenham’s fourth. His hard work defensively deserves a mention too as he dispossessed an opponent three times, made five tackles and won an aerial duel. 11 11 11 11 It was another thrilling weekend, well, Saturday, of football, with the Premier League proving its unpredictability once more.There were goals galore too with seven being scored at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium as they were defeated 5-2 by Arsenal.While it was a great weekend for under-pressure forwards as Wayne Rooney, Harry Kane, Alexis Sanchez and Memphis Depay all scored.But who were the outstanding players in the Premier League at the weekend? talkSPORT takes a look. 11 Central midfield: Santi Cazorla (Arsenal) – The little Spaniard is continuing to pull the strings for the Gunners as they look to fire themselves into a title tilt. Not only did he grab an assist, Cazorla ran the show with a fine display of passing, and he still managed to trouble Kasper Schmeichel with four strikes on goal. 11 Centre-back: Virgil van Dijk (Southampton) – The former Celtic centre-back is hitting the ground running with the Saints. He nabbed the opening goal of the game and was a rock at the back alongside Jose Fonte. His ability in the air will be a real asset for the Saints. 11 11 11 Central midfield: Eric Dier (Tottenham) – Mauricio Pochettino’s decision to move the young star into midfield baffled many at the start of the campaign, while experts believed the clash with Man City would be make or break for the player – it turns out he broke Man City instead. He was excellent breaking up play and forcing errors from his opponents and scored the opener for Spurs, which was a lovely hit. Left-back: Kevin Mbabu (Newcastle) – Making your debut against the reigning Premier League champions has got to be pretty daunting. Add to that, you’re facing ex-Barcelona star Pedro, and you’re playing in a Newcastle side devoid of confidence, it makes Mbabu’s performance quite superb. He got in nine tackles for the Magpies as they nearly beat Chelsea at St James’ Park. Centre-back: Winston Reid (West Ham) – Another week, another brilliant display. Getting the New Zealander to sign a new deal last season was an excellent bit of work by the club. As Norwich threatened to beat them at Upton Park he got in three vital tackles and won an impressive seven aerial duels. Attacking midfield: Juan Mata (Manchester United) – The Spanish star’s accuracy with a pass in the final third is incredible and as the Red Devils took on Sunderland at the weekend, he mucked in with a goal and an assist. Striker: Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool) – Two brilliantly taken goals helped the Reds down a dismal looking Aston Villa side 3-2 at the weekend and he would have had a hat-trick had it not been for Brad Guzan. His link up play with Philippe Coutinho will have excited the Anfield faithful.last_img read more

first_img Thud. Clearly, this isn’t Middle America’s version of Yankees-Red Sox. In fact, it’s not even close to being the best rivalry in the NL Central that distinction belongs to the Cardinals-Cubs. “That’s at a different level because of the fans,” Eckstein conceded. “I don’t know that you’ll find a Cardinals fan who says he hates the Astros more than the Cubs.” But, when it comes to performance on the field, the Cardinals and Astros have risen to the top of the senior circuit. They’re back for the first NL championship series rematch in 13 years, which begins with Game 1 today at soon-to-be-demolished Busch Stadium (a new stadium, set to open in 2006, is rising next door). “It’s a classic from a baseball standpoint,” Cardinals manager Tony La Russa said. “Maybe you don’t get as much passion from the fans during Cardinals-Astros as you do for Cardinals-Cubs. But we’re building a pretty good passion base for our fans and for each other because we play so much.” Indeed, there are many similarities between the teams. Both have deep starting rotations. Both have dominating closers. Both have versatile offenses that can go long or manufacture runs when the situation calls for it. And both are making a habit of playing in October. St. Louis has six playoff appearances over the past decade, reaching the NLCS four times and the World Series a year ago with a seven-game victory over the Astros a memorable series that was overshadowed by Boston’s comeback win against the Yankees in the ALCS. The Cardinals stayed alive when Jim Edmonds hit a game-winning homer in the 12th inning of Game 6. St. Louis closed out the series by beating Roger Clemens in Game 7. Houston is making its sixth playoff appearance in nine years and looking to reach the World Series for the first time in franchise history. The Astros made a breakthrough last year by escaping the opening round, beating perennial nemesis Atlanta. They knocked off the Braves again this year, advancing with an 18-inning win Sunday the longest game in postseason history. Now, even after meeting 16 times during the regular season and preparing for Astros-Cardinals II, both sides say it’s impossible to drum up the sort of hatred that signifies a truly passionate rivalry. For one, Houston still feels like a junior member instead of an equal partner. The Cardinals followed up last year’s NL pennant the 16th in franchise history by going 11-5 against the Astros this season on the way to 100 wins and a runaway victory in the Central Division. Houston finished 11 games back, but managed to pull out the wild card after falling 15 games under .500 early in the year. “It’s not really going to be a rivalry until we start beating the Cardinals a couple of times,” Astros manager Phil Garner said. “When they go home mad, then it will be a rivalry. Right now, it’s kind of one-sided.” OK, so Astros-Cardinals doesn’t qualify as a rivalry in the classic sense there’s just not enough trash-talking. Maybe, though, these teams are coming up with their own definition. “It may not be intense in the stands, but it’s intense on the field,” Berkman said. “It’s not a rivalry of hatred. It’s a rivalry of mutual respect. We enjoy competing against these guys.” NLCS NOTES: Cardinals right fielder Larry Walker got hit by a pitch on his right knee in Game 3 of the division series sweep of San Diego, and needed time and therapy to reduce swelling in time for the NLCS. … Sent home with flu-like symptoms to get as much rest as possible for a possible NLDS Game 5, Houston’s Andy Pettitte, slated to start today’s NLCS Game 1, watched part of his team’s marathon 18-inning clincher over Atlanta on Sunday on television.

Hmm, maybe we’ll fare better at stirring things up in the opposing clubhouse. “They’re a good bunch of guys,” said David Eckstein of the St. Louis Cardinals. “It’s hard to dislike them.” center_img ST. LOUIS — They are members of the same division. They’re perennial playoff teams. And they’re meeting for the second year in a row with a trip to the World Series at stake. All right!
