Roma hero Nicolo Zaniolo stunned by his twogoal haul

first_img19-year-old Nicolo Zaniolo was lost for words after scoring both of AS Roma’s goals in their 2-1 first win over FC Porto in their last-16 Champions League tie.The Italian midfielder, who arrived at Roma last summer from Inter Milan as part of a trade deal for Radja Nainggolan, proved to be the difference at the Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday night for the Giallorossi with two second-half goals.Zaniolo got his first of the game in the 70th-minute after controlling Edin Dzeko’s pass and then slotting the ball past former Real Madrid keeper Iker Casillas.The teenager got his second six minutes later after Dzeko’s effort from 20 yards out hit the post for Zaniolo to then put it away to become the youngest Italian player to score a double in a Champions League match and help seal Roma a 2-1 first leg win over Porto.“I have no words, it’s a memorable day. I’ll never forget it in my life,” Zaniolo told Sky Sport Italia.“Now I want to focus on the return leg because the goal we gave up can be bothersome. We have to play like we did today without conceding anything to the opponents.“We had prepared it this way. I ran a lot, but I’m happy for the result. It’s a unique emotion to score under the Curva Sud, I can’t describe it. I hope to score many more.”Roma captain Daniele De Rossi also paid tribute to the youngster in what was also his first knockout Champions League game.“It’s another small milestone, perhaps not even a small one, that adds to what he is showing game after game and even training session after training session,” De Rossi said.Top 5 Atletico Madrid players to watch in next week’s UCL Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 With the Champions League about to start, we need to start talking about the Top 5 Atletico Madrid players to watch in the competition.Atletico…“He has an incredible natural physique for someone who is only 19 and also has great technical quality.“In my opinion, as perhaps with everyone now, he is already a very good player – and can become a great one.”Substitute Adrian Lopez capitalised on Tiquinho Soares’ mis-hit shot to score a crucial away goal for Porto to settle the scoreline at 2-1.The return leg between Porto and Roma will take place at the Estádio do Dragão in Portugal on March 6.😮 Remember the name!🇮🇹 Nicolò Zaniolo = youngest Italian player to score 2 goals in a #UCL match ⚽️⚽️ pic.twitter.com/VUyYpQ1Xop— UEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) February 12, 2019last_img read more

Visiting dentist may cut pneumonia risk

first_imgGood oral hygiene can reduce bad bacteria in the mouth and thus decrease the risk of developing pneumonia, a research has found. Pneumonia is an infection that inflames air sacs in one or both lungs, which may fill with fluid.The infection is more common among older people and those with conditions such as AIDS or lung disease. The study found that people who never get dental checkups had an 86 per cent greater risk of pneumonia than those who visit the dentist twice a year. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf“There is a well-documented connection between oral health and pneumonia, and dental visits are important in maintaining good oral health,” said lead author Michelle Doll, Assistant Professor at Virginia Commonwealth University in the US.“We can never rid the mouth of bacteria altogether, but good oral hygiene can limit the quantities of bacteria present,” Doll added.The human body contains 10 times as many microbes (bacteria, fungi and viruses) as human cells on or in the body, from the skin to the gastrointestinal system (including the mouth). Some microbes are good and some are bad, but even bad microbes only cause disease under certain circumstances. In some cases, bacteria can be accidentally inhaled or aspirated into the lungs and cause pneumonia. Bacteria that commonly cause pneumonia include streptococcus, haemophilus, staphylococcus, and anaerobic bacteria. Routine dental visits may reduce the amount of bacteria that can be aspirated, Doll said. “Our study provides further evidence that oral health is linked to overall health, and suggests that it’s important to incorporate dental care into routine preventive healthcare,” Doll said.last_img read more

Buy the right bra dont torture yourself

first_imgLingerie is the most important foundation piece for putting together a great outfit you feel comfortable in and look the best in silhouette. It is important to choose the right bra that not only compliments your body shape but also offers high comfort and best fit. Invest time in having a professional bra fit because the size and shape of your breasts impact your choice of bra shape and size for your perfect fit. You know when you have the right bra fit, when it’s so comfortable you hardly know you are wearing one.Make sure to try on different bras to understand which shape makes you feel most comfortable. Your bra should be a snug fit but never dig into your sides. Also ensure the underwire doesn’t dig into your chest or pinch your skin, if this happens then try a bigger cup size.Your bra straps shouldn’t be too loose or tight and be adjustable to your desired level of elevation.The cups should be smooth and the edges should lay flat against your chest when you have the correct fit, without any bulges over the cup. The best way to ascertain you have the right cup size is to lift your arms and the bra should stay perfectly in place.The biggest mistake most women make is not wearing the right cup size. Band sizes are measured in even numbers, when you have fastened the underband you should only be able to pull the bra 4-5 cms away at the back, to get the best support. Cups should fully encase your breast without spillage.As a practice, get yourself measured every six to twelve months as your size can regularly change due to both weight loss and gain. It is imperative to get yourself fitted by a fully trained bra-fit expert at regular intervals to make sure that you have the right size.If your breasts rest too close to each other then you need to find a bra with moulded cups with high centre gore. This will allow your breasts to settle in respective cups and give a fuller look.If your breasts rest wide apart then you need a bra with sturdy side wings and side boning to support breast tissues and move them into the cups. Go for a push up bra.If you have firm and full breasts then a full coverage bra is a good choice. It gives full support to breast tissues.If you have shallow breasts then demi cup bra with wide straps or a push up bra will suit you the best. It will give that needed push to your breasts and give them a rounded appearance as well. Women with broad shoulders, should go for a balconette bra with wide set straps for steady hold.last_img read more
