Zidane invents goal

first_imgBefore the need, virtue. Zidane has applied common sense and while collecting every goal that Benzema gives him, he has had to find his life to continue finding the honeycomb of rich honey just when the French tip has not seen the door or has been injured, as has recently been the case. This is what Marseille has done in the transit from 2019 to 2020. The last eight goals of Madrid have come from players who are not forwards. On January 4 in 0-3 to Getafe (Varane double and Modric’s double), 3-1 to Valencia (Kroos, Isco and Modric) in the Arabic Supercup and the two to Seville this Saturday, from ‘Casemiro Nazario de Lima ‘, as Álvaro Benito tweeted. Madrid has been winning titles in the last five years by jumping to the bullfighter theory of the short blanket of Tim, that coach of the San Lorenzo Argentina of the sixties who said that “if you cover your head you uncover your feet and if you cover your feet, you uncover your head.” From a Madrid that won the Champions League by crushing up without caring to be passive back to this new remodeled by Zidane in which better protect first ‘The giraffe’ Courtois (that’s what Reguilón gave him affectionately) and from there see who scratches a goal in the opposite area. It happened again against Sevilla. Without Benzema, nor Jovic neither Rodrygo far from Lucas Vázquez, the theoretical specialists, had hardly any offensive impact. Zero shots between the three …The solution was in Casemiro …Another shows that Zidane waters the flower himself with his tactical ideas. Casemiro’s double was not a coincidence. Zizou ordered Kroos and Modric to retreat to cover the Brazilian zone and he, on the other hand, go up to the attack to surprise as fake nine the little elastic Gudelj. So Casemiro hunted Sevilla first with his right, then head and was about hat-trick Perfect with left handed.A palpable inertia, that of finding resources, from which Zidane took the chest: “Any of my players can make a difference in the offensive part.” The figures confirm it. Of the 53 white goals this course, Benzema, Rodrygo, Bale, Vinicius, Jovic, Hazard and Lucas scored 29 goals. The other 24 have come, among others, from unexpected players like Modric (five, record in Madrid), Kroos (four, to one of his best record) and Varane (three, also one of his record) …last_img read more

The Wealth of Nations & Liberia’s Widening Trade Deficit

first_imgThe Editor,Because of the widening trade deficit, Liberia’s Central Bank Governor (Mills Jones) wants a “reverse in the country’s export policy towards non-traditional exports”………Ok, great.But why do we have an export policy for “non-traditional exports” in the first place?? (Re “Liberia’s Trade Deficit Widens”)Promoting the free trade of ALL goods and services (traditional and non-traditional exports) is the best export policy for our prosperity!In the “Wealth of Nation”,  Adam Smith, the Father of Modern Economics said that “In every country it always is and must be in the interest of the great body of people to buy whatever they want of those sell it cheapest…”He also argued that in a free exchange of goods and services, both sides became better off! Because trade benefits both sides (importer and exporter), it increases our prosperity!But our imperial President (Madam Sirleaf) have issued several executive orders (#44 and #50), banning private citizens from trading (exporting) their private property (timber, unprocessed rubber, and other natural resources)!Don’t we the people have the right to use, transfer, and trade property that we deem ours? If so, then why is the President using her executive orders to make life a living hell for private citizens who want to trade their goods and services with others in the global economy??Hey Madam President, the hard currency (U.S. dollars) we get from trading our exports is what we use to pay for our imports—(Heinekens, Guinness Stout, bottled water, and Governor Jones’s fabulous salary)! So why are you hostile to free trade??Um, is there any way can we pay the Governor and the President in Liberian Dollars, since they are the ones wreaking havoc with our monetary policies? Since Jan. 1 2013, the Liberian Dollar have depreciated (rise in exchange rate) from L$72.5/US$1.00 to L$83/US1.00 in Dec 2013!..And that depreciation of the Liberian dollar is the direct result of our monetary and trade policies. Look, if the President continues to ban private citizens from exporting (trading) their private property to willing buyers around the world, Liberians will soon start living like Zimbabweans! Hint  Z$10,000,000,000,000 = 1 US Dollar! (Binyah Kesselly could be our first Liberian Dollar Billionaire!)But the best export policy is for lawmakers to pass legislation that nullifies the ALL executive orders that ban private citizens from trading (exporting) their private property (timber, unprocessed rubber, etc) with whomever they choose to around the world! Free trade is the best trade policy for our prosperity!

Villarreal 1-0 Liverpool: Reds heartbroken as hosts grab injury time winner

first_img Alberto Moreno rues Liverpool’s missed chances Adrian Lopez scored a late winning goal for Villarreal, handing the La Liga club the advantage in their Europa League semi-final clash against Liverpool.The on-loan Porto attacker slotted into an empty net two minutes into injury time, after a poor game in which neither side had any serious ambitions to attack.A drab first half brought few chances, and it was a sign of things to come.A right-wing cross from Adam Lallana presented Joe allen with a chance on the penalty spot, but he fired straight at Sergio Asenjo, and the majority of Liverpool’s other chances came from long-range.The hosts had the better attempts, but Mignolet was never forced into a top quality save, despite Roberto Soldado’s best efforts.The former Tottenham striker had one attempt from the right side of the penalty area which he dragged past the far post, before curling a second shot just around the right-hand upright.It was a half which promised much, but failed to deliver, and Jurgen Klopp brought on Jordon Ibe for Philippe Coutinho at half-time to liven up the Reds’ attack.However, Villarreal had the best early chances.Cédric Bakambu flashed a powerful header off the outside of the post and Mario powered over from a wide angle, before the visitors managed a realistic attempt.From the right side of the box, Firmino’s low strike was pushed onto the near post by Asenjo, who was alert and up to the challenge despite having little to do for much of the game.Both teams appeared content to play for the draw, and it wasn’t until the final minutes that the game livened up.Bakambu broke through the centre and drew a fine diving same from Mignolet, and from the resulting corner, Liverpool counter attacker.Alberto Moreno charged down the left wing into the box, but he shot wildly high and wide, and the miss came back to haunt the Reds just moments later.Heading into injury time, Denis Suarez broke the high line that Liverpool were playing, breaking quickly into the box.Rather than taking the shot himself, Suarez squared the ball to Lopez, who tapped into the empty net from close range.It was the deciding goal, and hands Villarreal a small advantage heading into the second leg at Anfield next week.Elsewhere, Sevilla secured a 2-2 in the Ukraine against Shakhtar Donetsk, as they look to win their third straight Europa League title. 1last_img read more
