Ready for Wembley and a record attendance for a women’s cup final

first_imgLosing against Manchester City to a late goal was hard to take – especially as we played so well.Games against City are always tight and they got the luck this time, with a deflected goal off my head. But I didn’t feel like I had any option but to go for it. I couldn’t duck out – that would have been worse.After a setback like that you have to focus and bounce back. It’s not something you can dwell on – it happens.AdChoices广告And our chance to bounce back is the Women’s FA Cup final against Notts County at Wembley, no less.Tickets are still on sale for the big game at WembleyThe Wembley wow factorOn Wednesday we took the opportunity to visit Wembley and get familiar with the place ahead of Saturday’s big game.A lot of the younger players and foreign players have never been there before so it’s great to have a tour before the day so it’s not such a shock when we arrive for the match.We need to play the game, not the occasion, so we don’t want to turn up and look around and think “Wow, look at this” and forget why we are there. It will be daunting, so having that experience will help us.More than 26,000 tickets have already been sold and the FA expect around another 4,000 or so on the day – and it could be even more. It’s likely to be a record attendance for a Women’s FA Cup final – but there are still tickets left if you want to go to Wembley and cheer us on!Facing the Lady PiesWe have beaten Notts already this season and know what to expect. They play a more direct style than us and are tricky to break down, but we’re very confident we will win if we play as well as we can.The season began with a win against Notts CountyWe have the movement and quality in attack to trouble any side and we’re all looking forward to playing in such a big match in front of a big crowd and television audience – and in such a big occasionWe’re all striving to showcase what we can do. We did it on the international stage at the World Cup and this is a another chance to prove the quality of the women’s game.Kirby classMany people have asked me about Fran Kirby – my England team-mate who recently joined me at Chelsea.Fran Kirby was a recent signing from ReadingShe’s a great player who terrorises defenders and signing her was also a great strategic move by the club. It shows the long-term plan is very much part of the thinking.I think we’d been after another attacking player for a while and Fran fits the bill perfectly. She has fantastic enthusiasm and loves to turn and run at defenders.She plays with freedom, gets in good areas and scores goals. She is full of confidence and is aware of the ability she has. It’s a very exciting signing.Playing at Chelsea, with the players we have, she can really shine.Supporters can still purchase tickets for the Women’s FA Cup final through the FA, either online or by calling 0844 826 2010.The game kicks off at Wembley on Saturday, 1st August at 3pm. You can follow updates and behind-the-scenes build-up on the official Chelsea Ladies Twitter account at @ChelseaLFC.

Everton loanee will return to club before June 30th – Official…

first_imgWhen Everton decided to spend £26m on Yannick Bolasie, no one could have predicted what was about to happen next. The winger was enjoying a great spell in his career when he moved to Goodison Park, but the cruciate ligament injury he suffered in December 2016 stopped him in his tracks, and he’s never managed to fully recover from it.Loans to Aston Villa, Anderlecht and now Sporting CP haven’t changed anything, with the DR Congo international struggling to have an impact in Portugal.Making 25 appearances, the 30-year-old has contributed with two goals and five assists in all competitions, but it was made clear early on this year the Portuguese side would not be triggering the option in his contract.Embed from Getty ImagesNot only that, but there is now an agreement for him to return to Everton before June 30th, what with the Covid-19 pandemic putting the world of football on hold and all that.Record are the ones reporting it, claiming the forward ‘will no longer return to work’ at Sporting CP’s facilities, and the ‘official announcement of the decision is only delayed by the signing of the agreement’.With Bolasie out of Rúben Amorim’s plans, ‘Sporting got in touch with all parties’, who ‘agreed to anticipate the departure’.Since the forward is contracted at Everton until 2021, decisions will need to be made in the summer, but the most likely outcome will be the Toffees accepting they will have to cut their losses and try to sell him to whomever wants him.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

5 Ways to Keep Skin Healthy and Beautiful this Summer

first_imgbrandpointcontent.com Going outside? Follow these tips to protect your faceIt’s time to embrace the pleasures of summer: long vacations, poolside lounging, and al fresco dining with great views. While soaking up the sun can be fun, it can also pose significant risk for your skin. According to research published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, the majority of Americans are not regularly using sunscreen to protect themselves from the sun’s harmful UV rays.More than half of women are not using sunscreen regularly on their faces, one of the most exposed areas of the skin, according to the Melanoma Research Alliance.Besides the fact that the sun’s UV rays can prematurely age your skin, exposure can also lead to melanoma, the deadliest type of skin cancer, and one of the most common cancers in young adults, especially young women.“Wearing sunscreen every day is one of the most important steps you can take to help protect your skin and prevent melanoma.  Applying a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher every day can help keep your skin healthy looking and beautiful at any age,” says Dr. Rocio Rivera, L’Oréal Paris director of scientific communications.As your hours in the sun increase this season, here are a few tips to help keep your skin protected – minimizing your risk and maximizing your fun.Protect your face. When you’re going to spend time outside, apply a broad-spectrum SPF 15 or higher to any exposed skin, even on a cloudy day. “It is important to apply and re-apply broad spectrum SPF sunscreen daily and every two hours if you are swimming or sweating to ensure proper continuous protection,” says Dr. Rivera.  Also, incorporating skincare products formulated with broad spectrum SPF like Revitalift Bright Reveal Day Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 from L’Oréal Paris is a cinch and ensures your skin is hydrated and protected.Consider a faux tan.If you are not a sun person, don’t worry. There are many self-tanning options that can help you get a natural-looking glow without baking in the sun or under the lights of a tanning bed. Try a wash-off bronzer or a self-tanning serum that can be mixed with your favorite SPF moisturizer.  But always remember to apply SPF even if you are going faux.Don’t forget eyes, ears, lips and hands.Every part of your body that’s exposed to the sun needs protection, so don’t forget to wear lip balm with SPF and apply broad spectrum sunscreen to your ears. Along with being a chic summer accessory, sunglasses are a must for shielding your eyes from the sun. Some research shows that exposure to UV rays can damage your eyes, according to the organization Prevent Blindness.Wear a hat.A wide-brimmed hat is a classic summer look for good reason: it will block about half of UV rays. Since harmful rays can still bounce off surfaces, it’s important to think of a hat as additional protection, not a substitute for sunscreen.Apply, reapply and repeat. After a couple hours, the protection in sunscreen starts wearing off, even if you’re not doing anything athletic. Set a timer reminding yourself to reapply, especially if you are swimming or sweating.This summer, don’t take a vacation from sun protection for your skin.Since 2013, L’Oréal Skin Expert Paris has donated $750,000 to the Melanoma Research Alliance (MRA) to support the fight to prevent melanoma. For the next three years, L’Oréal Skin Expert Paris will continue supporting the MRA by donating $250,000 a year to this worthy organization. In addition to obtaining a “healthy looking glow” through Sublime Bronze products, remember to wear a broad spectrum SPF each day to help keep your skin beautiful at every age and help prevent melanoma.

49ers DL Arik Armstead plans for life without Buckner

first_imgLast Updated: 14th May, 2020 13:24 IST 49ers DL Arik Armstead Plans For Life Without Buckner Arik Armstead and DeForest Buckner were teammates on the defensive line for seven of the past eight seasons whether in college at Oregon or in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers. COMMENT SUBSCRIBE TO US LIVE TV Written By First Published: 14th May, 2020 13:24 ISTcenter_img Arik Armstead and DeForest Buckner were teammates on the defensive line for seven of the past eight seasons whether in college at Oregon or in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers.So when Armstead got rewarded with an $85 million, five-year contract in free agency from San Francisco on the first day of free agency this offseason, the news that followed was a little disconcerting.The Niners had traded Armstead’s longtime running mate to Indianapolis for a first-round pick.“It was of course an interesting day to say the least,” Armstead said Wednesday. “A lot of excitement of course, signing back with the Niners that definitely was what I wanted to do. Then learning about DeFo being traded was a shock to me. Trying to figure out how that happened and what went on.”What went on was that the Niners decided they couldn’t afford to keep both their star defensive linemen under the salary cap. With Buckner owed $12.4 million on the fifth-year option on his rookie deal and looking for a lucrative long-term contract that he eventually got from the Colts, the Niners decided it made more sense to keep Armstead and get a high draft pick for Buckner that turned into his replacement, Javon Kinlaw.Armstead said he never thought that his deal could have lead to his friend’s departure and said it will be “weird” to play without Buckner. The only other time he’s done it since the two arrived at Oregon together in 2012 came during Armstead’s rookie year in the NFL in 2015.“I figured there would be a way we’d be able to continue playing together,” he said. “But things happened how it happened. Losing DeFo, he’s an irreplaceable player, a leader, a fixture of our organization. There definitely will be a void there. That’s not something one person will be able to fill. It’s going to be a team effort.”The fact that the Niners kept Armstead over Buckner would have been viewed as a surprise a year ago. While Buckner had been a leader on the defense since being drafted in the first round in 2016, Armstead’s career had been a bit of a disappointment until last season.He played only 14 games combined in 2016 and ’17 before injuries put him on season-ending injured reserve and he made little impact when healthy.He had just nine sacks in his first five seasons and many questioned the wisdom of bringing him back in 2019 on the fifth-year option worth more than $9 million.But that decision was validated when Armstead led the team with 10 sacks and ranked second with 35 pressures despite playing significant time on the inside. He also was a force against the run.Armstead believes that’s only the beginning and he expects even more improvement this season when he plays on a talented line that also features defensive end Nick Bosa, speed rusher Dee Ford, the promising Kinlaw, 2017 first-round pick Solomon Thomas and the dependable D.J. Jones and Ronald Blair.“I made some strides,” Armstead said. “I think I became overall a better player. I got better in every facet. Still a lot to improve on. I want to play faster. I want to work on my get-off. I want to continue to work on my technique and honing in on my skills. You can get better and better every year. There are definitely some things I want to continue to improve on. I got a lot better last year and I think I’m just hitting my stride getting started.” WATCH US LIVE Associated Press Television News FOLLOW USlast_img read more

‘I’m back’ declares  Tyson in training video

first_img(Reuters) – Former-world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson continued to tease boxing fans about a possible return to the ring by posting another training video on Instagram on Monday that ended with the message, “I’m back”. The 53-year-old caught the attention of the boxing world last week when he posted a short video of a workout that showed he possesses plenty of the punching power and speed that allowed him to become the first heavyweight to hold the WBA, WBC and IBF titles.Tyson said then that he was considering a return to the ring for some exhibition bouts to raise money for charity.The newest video showed Tyson growling through a workout hitting the pads in yet another display of the ferocious power that made him one of the sport’s most feared punchers. Since Tyson hinted at a return, challengers have been lining up for a shot at the boxer known as “Iron Mike”.New Zealand rugby great Sonny Bill Williams, who dabbled in boxing posting a 7-0-0 record, and Australian Paul Gallen, another rugby player with a 9-0-1 record in the ring, have been touted as potential opponents.A more likely bet, however, would be Evander Holyfield with whom Tyson engaged in several epic bouts during their professional careers. If Tyson, who retired after a loss to Kevin McBride in 2005, does return to the ring, he will be following in the footsteps of Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao in coming out of retirement for an exhibition fight.Tyson, who became the youngest heavyweight champion of all time when he defeated Trevor Berbick in 1986 aged 20, won 50 of his 58 professional fights before retiring.last_img read more

Iowa State awards Prohm and Fennelly contract extensions

first_imgISU Athletic Director Jamie Pollard. (file photo)Iowa State basketball coaches Steve Prohm and Bill Fennelly have agreed to contract extensions through 2022.Prohm’s team won six of its last seven regular-season games this year, then captured the Big 12 Tournament Championship and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the sixth year in a row.“Coach Prohm has led our program to a Big 12 Championship and back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances while also representing our institution and athletics department in a first-class manner, both on and off the court,” said Iowa State Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard. “His values and approach to coaching are a perfect fit for our institution and fan base.”In two years at Iowa State, Prohm has registered a 47-23 record, advanced to the NCAA “sweet 16” last season and the Cyclones lost to Purdue last week in the round of 32. His deal was extended one year and his total compensation was increased to $2 million annually.Fennelly’s team also finished strong in 2016-17, winning its final five regular-season games, knocking off the sixth-ranked team in the country on the road and earned a berth in the NCAA Tournament for the tenth time in 11 seasons.“When you consider Coach Fennelly took a program that had averaged just more than 10 wins a year in the two decades before his arrival and now has won 465 games in Ames, it’s a pretty amazing story,” added Pollard. “His players are great ambassadors on and off the court and he has personally built a loyal and large fan base one person at a time.”Fennelly’s contract was extended three years to June 30, 2022.Share this:FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

President decides where he holds activities – Harmon

first_img…wants Nandlall to show evidence PNC using State resourcesIn the aftermath of allegations that Government has been using State resources for party activities, eyebrows have again been raised when the People’s National Congress (PNC) annual bursary awards exercise was held at State House on Thursday.Minister of State, Joseph HarmonCommenting on why the event was not hosted at Congress Place, where it is usually held, State Minister Joseph Harmon posited that President David Granger is allowed to make decisions that are convenient to his schedule.“Well, that’s a decision which His Excellency the President made. He is the President of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana, and depending on what is convenient to him, based on his schedule, the President will determine where he holds any activity,” Harmon told reporters on Friday.The hosting of a party event on State property comes days after Opposition Parliamentarian Anil Nandlall accused the PNC of utilising State resources to fund its events.Opposition MP Anil NandlallIn a Facebook post on Sunday, the former Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister claimed that the PNC, whose leader is President Granger, is using the National Treasury as a piggy bank. His comments were occasioned by that party holding its 60th anniversary celebration at the National Cultural Centre on Saturday.According to the Opposition MP, all the amenities of the state-owned facility were utilised, and not a cent was paid by the PNC.“Everything was paid for by the taxpayers,” he said, while adding that persons were flown from across the country and from overseas to attend the event. He claimed that even public servants and army officers were “forced” to attend the anniversary celebrations.“All these expenses are going to be passed off as expenditures of the Investiture Ceremony, which took place the day before. The proximate cost is about $10 million,” Nandlall alleged.However, asked by reporters to comment further on allegations made, Harmon called on the Opposition to produce evidence that the Coalition Government is indeed utilising State resources to facilitate party activities.“Well, I would like to know where Mr Nandlall got that information from. (But) let him produce the evidence, because, like I said, the PPP is in the habit now of throwing out these wild assertions without any evidential basis. Let Mr. Nandlall come and produce the basis,” the State Minister said.last_img read more
