Mikel Reveals Eagles’ Advantage at AFCON 2019

first_imgJohn Mikel Obi, Duro IkhazuagbeSuper Eagles Captain, John Mikel Obi, is banking on the fitness level of the three-time champions to play a big role when the 32nd Africa Nations Cup kicks off on June 21 in Egypt.Mikel who returned to Eagles almost one year after he last played for Nigeria at the 2018 World Cup in Russia said at the team’s media briefing in Asaba yesterday that fitness level will play a big role in deciding which countries qualify from the group stage to the knock out phase. ”If you look back at 2013 (when Nigeria won the AFCON in South Africa), we were one of the fittest teams. We were well drilled as we were put through hard work during the camp. We knew exactly what we were doing. We were really fit,” recalled Mikel.He revealed that it is almost the same fitness regimen the current class of Eagles are being put through ahead of the AFCON 2019 in Egypt.”That’s exactly what we are doing now, training twice a day. If you want to win this trophy you have to do things like that.”With hindsight, Mikel further observed that fitness plays a big role in African football.”Well, I think obviously fitness is going to play a big part in this tournament, it always does when it comes to African football, fitness always plays 80 per cent part in who wins the tournament.”The former Chelsea of England midfielder who ended his one-year loan deal with Middlesbrough at the close of the season is excited that the current squad under the watch of Franco-German coach, Gernot Rohr are brimming with excitement to make marks.”I am happy that every player in this team want to do it, we want to achieve the same thing, we want to be in the finals and win the tournament but we also need to know we are not the outright favourite, we have to remain cool, calm, just do what we have to do, not look at other teams.”If we do that, we’ll keep winning games. Experience will also play a big part.The Eagles midfielder also commended the handlers of the team for having a very good mix of experienced and up coming players.Mikel will play his 21st game at the AFCON in Egypt if he is selected in the final 23-man squad for Nigeria’s opening game against Burundi on June 22.Meanwhile, Shanghai Greenland Shenhua striker, Odion Jude Ighalo and Udinese central defender, William Troost-Ekong have finally joined their colleagues for the final tune up before departing for Egypt.Super Eagles Media Officer, Toyin Ibitoye confirmed that the two players arrived camp yesterday and took part in the evening workout at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba.While Troost-Ekong had muscular problems towards the end of the 2018-2019 season, Ighalo just recovered from a hamstring problem which kept him on the sidelines for about three weeks.The Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers top scorer has not played competitively for his Chinese club since May 10 as manager Quique Sánchez Flores refused to risk him against Chongqing Dangdai Lifan (June 1), four days after the striker resumed full training.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

(AP Photo/Winslow Townson)ExpandBOSTON — If anyone came prepared for a rivalry game, it was Celtics fans. It certainly wasn’t the Lakers.The latest installment of a dormant rivalry began with boos raining down on Lonzo Ball, and with Coach Luke Walton offering a harsh assessment of his team’s play. The Lakers dug an early hole – despite slashing a 21-point second-quarter deficit to two points after halftime – from which they could not recover.The Celtics won 107-96.The Lakers’ effort could be traced to an ugly first quarter, in which they were outscored 33-16. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“They punked us,” Walton said.“They just came out hungry,” rookie Kyle Kuzma said of the Celtics, who have now won 10 games in a row after starting the season 0-2. “The crowd got into it and we were kind of shocked by that a little bit.”As for the unexpected defense that had become the Lakers’ calling card through 10 games?“All of that went out the door today,” Walton said.Although the game was not yet out of hand in the opening period, Walton said the Lakers’ offense was “playing a little selfish” and “defensively we were getting big-boyed.” He turned to veteran center Andrew Bogut for help, but that only seemed to make matters worse. Boston immediately went on a 10-0 run. A unique lineup featuring Bogut – who before Wednesday had averaged 7.2 minutes in six games – swingman Corey Brewer at power forward and Jordan Clarkson at point guard was outscored 17-5 in the final 5:56 of the first period.The matchup of teams that have met in 12 NBA Finals has been a rivalry in name only since 2014, when both teams bottomed out as lottery teams. The Celtics began their climb back to the top of the Eastern Conference while the Lakers remained mired in Western Conference irrelevance, getting progressively worse before winning 27 games last season.“We don’t really like them,” Kuzma said. “It’s going to be a good rivalry going forward. Hopefully it’s renewed.”It will take more than the effort the Lakers gave on Wednesday, committing 21 turnovers and allowing 25 second-chance points.All-Star center Al Horford did not play for the Celtics after he experienced headaches Wednesday and was placed in the league’s concussion protocol. That cleared the way for Aron Baynes to make a spot start. The veteran center had a surprising 21 points, a game-high.The Lakers began their comeback in the second quarter behind a smaller lineup anchored by Julius Randle, who finished with 16 points and 12 rebounds.Brandon Ingram and Clarkson each scored 18 points to lead the Lakers, and it was Clarkson whose driving layup with 5:42 remaining in the third quarter trimmed the deficit to 76-74.“On the road it’s kind of hard to fight back after the first quarter that we had,” Ingram said, “but we did fight back and we had a chance to try to take the lead. But that’s a playoff team. They made some big plays down the stretch.”Kyrie Irving finished with 19 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists, outdueling his counterpart Ball.“He is a great player,” said Ball, who finished with nine points on 4-of-15 shooting. “I said it before the game, one of the best players in the league. Tough challenge having to stay in front of him.”Ball added six assists and five rebounds, but struggled defensively along with the rest of the team, although he did record a career-high four blocked shots.As for the boos, Ball acknowledged he heard them, but seemed unaffected.“It’s their home,” he said. “I’d boo too if I was a fan.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Purple & Bold: How Anthony Davis has withstood the spotlight for Lakers

first_imgEditor’s note: This is the Wednesday, Nov. 27 edition of the Purple & Bold Lakers newsletter. To receive the newsletter in your inbox, sign up here.NEW ORLEANS — The tiniest changes can feel disorienting, but at least they’re easy to make.Anthony Davis felt a little turned around Wednesday morning as he entered the Smoothie King Center, the venue where he played the previous seven years of his NBA career. He mentioned to Danny Green that he had never come from the visiting side of the ramp before.Coming from a hotel in a city that used to be his home, Davis then took some shots on the court where he earned his way to six All-Star games. It felt familiar and just a little alien all at once. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error This is something that Davis has learned to grow into during the last few months: As a trade candidate who then became a Laker, the stage is larger than ever and far more intense for the 26-year-old. More introverted than teammate LeBron James, it’s been a challenge at times for Davis to be saturated with media coverage and scrutiny.Still, the production’s been there: 25.1 points, 9 rebounds, 3.8 assists and a league-leading 2.9 blocked shots per game. He’s averaging 34 percent from 3-point range while shooting the most 3-pointers of his career. The line Davis is most proud of is the wins: 15-2 with the Lakers, and starring roles in many of those victories.In New Orleans, questions swirled as to whether Davis was capable of carrying a winning team.“I think the world didn’t believe that I was able to do the same things in ‘the spotlight,’ I guess, quote-unquote,” he said. “My teammates are doing a great job of helping me through that and then having a guy like LeBron, obviously, who’s been in that light his whole career has also helped me with that as well. My job is easy. Go out there and play basketball and the rest will take care of itself.”Of course, a good start isn’t quite the body of evidence that erases all doubt that you’re a winner. Until the moment Davis wins a championship in Los Angeles – the standard by which all great Lakers are judged – talking heads, and the public at large, will probably wonder if Davis is built for the heady media markets of the world.Up close, that speculation evaporates. Frank Vogel said Davis has been a likable, even fun and light-hearted personality in the locker room in addition to being an All-Star on the court. The Lakers coach said Davis has handled the pressure as well as could be expected thus far.James also knows a thing or two about how to deal with the kind of scrutiny (and scorn) that Davis will face in the coming season. While he’s got obvious bias, he thinks Davis is chugging along well: some good days, some bad days, but with a general upward slope.“He got some of it last year when the trade rumors started last year, and all those rumors started,” James said. “Then the rumors were coming to fruition and everybody was bringing his name up, every talk show, every radio show if you watch that type of stuff, his name was being mentioned. So a lot of the attention there, and rightfully so. That’s the caliber of basketball player he is. So I think he’s handled it with a lot of gracefulness, and it’s pretty cool to be around.”SEEING OLD FRIENDSDavis’ return is not the only reunion tonight. Obviously, there’s Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and Lonzo Ball to consider.While Hart has been laid up recently with an ankle injury and Ball missed practice on Tuesday with an illness, all three could play against the Lakers for the first time in their careers. It’s reasonable to assume an uncomfortable dynamic between the former “young core” and LeBron James, who seemed to speak Davis’ trade to the Lakers into existence.James didn’t acknowledge any awkwardness between him and his former teammates, saying it would be “great” to play against them.“All three of them have been put into a much better situation and they’ve taken advantage of it,” he said. “So it sucks to see some of your teammates go, then when you see them flourish and be able to get a new beginning, you’re super excited for them and proud of what they’re doing.”The Lakers, of course, have been put in a much better situation by acquiring Davis and building a more cohesive roster. Even Ingram acknowledged Tuesday that the league-leading Lakers have sported “better players” in their hot start. But Ingram himself has been tearing it up, too, which has given some air to a hypothetical question that lingers over his career: Would things have been different if he hadn’t gotten hurt last spring?There was a genuine ring to James’ comments as he spoke about how happy he’s been for Ingram’s return to the court following thoracic outlet surgery.“When the injury happened, the most important thing we were all sad about and thinking about is if he could play again,” he said. “Because for me, my good friend Chris Bosh was kinda going through the same thing and he never played again. So that was the first thing that crept into my mind, and was just praying and hopeful that B.I. would be able just to play the game again. And obviously he is playing again through the grace of God, and through the grace of the medical team, whoever he was dealing with throughout that whole process, and he’s having a career year.”— Kyle GoonEditor’s note: Thanks for reading the Purple & Bold newsletter.

Being booed is no new thing for Davis, who faced angst at home after he requested a trade back in January. But the intensity of an ESPN-televised game in a prime NBA viewing slot combined with the simmering frustration of Pelicans fans could make for a high-pressure environment.The animosity isn’t necessarily happening between the lines (although the former Lakers who were traded away will surely try to bring their A-game). Jrue Holiday remains a close friend of Davis, and he publicly hoped that the Pelicans fans would be easy on him.Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry was less prescriptive.“That’s for the fans to determine,” he said. “They pay their money, they buy their tickets, and it’s their prerogative to do whatever they feel they need to do. I mean, if you’re talking about my personal relationship, I think A.D.’s a great kid and a great player. It’s just, it is what it is.”last_img read more

XFL takeaways from Week 1: Tweaked rules, surprising fun make new football league worth watching

first_imgThe XFL needs to make sure it won’t fail because of football reasons, and there were some interesting quirks about the presentation and gameplay that caught our attention:XFL POWER RANKINGS:Roughnecks, Defenders established at the top entering Week 2KickoffsThe kickoff — which requires that the ball go past the 20 after being kicked and features the return team and kickoff team separated by five yards, at the 30- and 35-yard lines, respectively — is a good alternative to ditching the kickoff altogether. It’s also worth noting that players cannot move until the return man touches the ball.First kickoff ✅📺 @ABCNetwork🖥 https://t.co/Y3eyIb9PfX pic.twitter.com/8uco6BzRDI— XFL (@xfl2020) February 8, 2020It reduces the risk of full-speed collisions, but is also better than watching obligatory touchbacks. In Week 1, there were just three penalties for procedure on kickoffs. There were no holding, clipping or illegal hits on kickoffs. This is an innovation that looks unorthodox but might end up being the norm in the NFL down the line in some variations. It’s a good call by the XFL. XFL WEEK 1 HIGHLIGHTS: Saturday | SundayConversion gameThere are no extra points in the XFL, and it was fair to wonder how that would play out with a system that ditched the traditional extra point and allowed teams to go for one point from the 2-yard line, two points from the 5-yard line or three points from the 10-yard line.There are similar rules in youth flag football leagues, but it works.*whispers*don’t forget a 12-point deficit can be erased with a score and a field goal in the #xfl— XFL (@xfl2020) February 8, 2020On Day 1, teams converted 5 of 14 extra points — with two 1-point conversions and three 2-point conversions. On Day 2, teams were two of five on conversions, and both were 1-point plays. That’s 7 of 19 for the weekend with no 3-pointers, but those will come. It’s definitely more exciting than moving the extra point back and blaming the kicker.MORE XFL: Rules | Schedule | Uniforms | RostersLive micsThe presentation of the league is user-friendly, with live mics and sideline interviews throughout the game.Putting live mics on the coaches and replay officials offers transparency. For example, you could follow along with Seattle coach Jim Zorn. For the casual fan, that allows for learning formations and play calls. It took you inside the huddle.The sideline interviews were nothing new, but they took you to the player right after the touchdown:”It’s a bunch of dogs out here.”@twll3 after taking one to the 🏠📺 @ABCNetwork🖥️ https://t.co/Y3eyIb9PfX pic.twitter.com/9QjVkseW3E— XFL (@xfl2020) February 8, 2020″It’s XFL football,” Seattle’s Trey Williams said. “It ain’t no slouch league. There are a bunch of dogs out here.”The XFL also has a good Twitter account that followed along with the action.Was the football good enough?Houston’s P.J. Walker became the league’s first breakout star with a four-touchdown performance against Los Angeles. Former Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones — who led the Buckeyes to a College Football Playoff national championship in 2014 — played well for the D.C. Defenders. St. Louis’ Jordan Ta’amu and New York’s Matt McGloin led victories in Day 2. These quarterbacks were recognizable names on the college level who had little playing time in the NFL. They need to emerge as star players in this league in order for it to have long-term success. That said, the XFL showed a little more polish then the AAF in terms of game play, and the preparation has paid off since the XFL Draft. It was better than average. MORE XFL:XFL salary breakdownXFL names you’ll recognizeWhat does the XFL stand for?What’s the spread?The XFL is embracing gambling (FoxBusiness.com details the bettor-friendly environment the league seeks to create). The spread is right there on the ticker, another reason why this league has a chance to stick around. Both home-team favorites covered Saturday, and the league will continue to promote that aspect.At least, they should. It will pull more bettors in. The XFL’s opening weekend could not be described as cheap, salacious or tawdry.It was just football — and the early returns for Vince McMahon’s latest venture were favorable. It might not pull down the same massive ratings as the original XFL in 2001, but this league showed earmarks that there could be more staying power if this momentum continues. Granted, we said the same thing about the Alliance of American Football last year, but that league crumbled for financial reasons. Keep it going?Like the AAF, the XFL had a better-than-expected debut. McMahon relied more on the football than the gimmicks this time, and it’s clear the presentation angle was well thought out.Ratings are going to be good this week, but some of that was borne out of the fascination factor. The league needs to promote its stars — Walker and Jones are a good start — and continue to build on that first week.We’re ready for Week 2. Will you be coming back?last_img read more
