On joining CD Tacon from Swedish side Vaxjo last September, she made 15 appearances, scoring twice for David Aznar’s side before the Spanish league’s coronavirus cancellation.For her two goals, the first came in Tacon’s 5-1 thrashing of Toni Payne’s Sevilla on January 4 and the second in a 4-3 win over rivals Madrid CFF in a local derby in the capital four weeks later.Following her announcement, Ohale becomes the latest Nigerian to join an Italian outfit and also the club’s third signing this summer after Spain’s Paloma Lazaro and Italy’s Rachele Baldi.Reacting to her historic move, Ohale told the club website: “I chose Roma because of so many things; so many amazing things about the club, about this city and this country that interested me.“I felt like it would be a great thing for me, to explore and to experience new things and a new challenge.” At club level, the 28-year-old starred at Delta Queens and Rivers Angels in Nigeria before her first contract abroad with Houston Dash in the United States, and she later moved to Sweden for stints with Vittsjo and Vaxjo.The defender, who has 26 international appearances for Nigeria, has won four African Women’s Cup of Nations titles and featured at three Fifa Women’s World Cups with the Super Falcons.Having joined the Giallorosse, Ohale will hope to make a fine debut in Italy when Roma open their league campaign in  September.Tags: AS RomaOsinachi OhalePlayer SigningSerie A Women’s LeagueSuper Falconslast_img read more

Euro 2016: France Set to End Iceland’s Fairytale

first_imgFrance were 1-0 down to the Republic of Ireland last time out but two second half goals from Antoine Griezmann turned the game on its head and allowed them to go on and secure a place in the quarter finals.However they will be without N’Golo Kante, who is suspended. The Leicester City midfielder has continued his fine Premier League form with his country, but a second yellow card of the tournament against the Republic of Ireland in the last-16 means he misses out in Paris.Les Bleus had gone behind against Martin O’Neil’s men and had to fight back for a 2-1 victory, and Patrice Evra has warned against the same situation happening against a dangerous Iceland side.“We keep scaring ourselves, we’re crazy,” the 35-year-old said. “If we keep doing that, we might not go through. We need to stop reacting and start acting. People go on about long throws and all that but Iceland are not just that. They’re a good team who can play good football and they did not get to this stage by accident,” he said.Despite Iceland’s historic result against England, joint coach Heimir Hallgrimsson believes their best game is still to come, and that all the pressure sits firmly with their opponents.“I think you can agree with me that we have been playing better and better throughout the competition, and I think you can agree with me that our best game is still to come.“There is a big difference in the pressure on Iceland and on France. France cannot lose the game, it would be horrible for the French nation. But the Icelandic people would be happy if we get a good performance against France. But we are realistic. You dream big. We can play the best game of our lives and still lose against France.”Kante will be joined on the sidelines by Adil Rami, who is also suspended for the clash, while exciting youngster Kingsley Coman is a doubt. The France forward was substituted late on against the Republic of Ireland after picking up an injury, and will be assessed ahead of today’s game.Iceland head to Paris with a clean bill of health after captain and long-throw specialist Aron Gunnarsson returned to training on Friday.The Cardiff City midfielder – whose throw-ins have created two goals for Iceland including one in their win over England – sat out of Thursday’s training with a back problem.The last two encounters between France and Iceland have produced 10 goals, both finishing 3-2 to the French.France are unbeaten in their last 16 major tournament games played on home soil, winning 14 and drawing two. Their last defeat dates back to July 1960 in the inaugural European Championships against Czechoslovakia (0-2).The two goals France have conceded at Euro 2016 have been from the penalty spot (v Romania and Republic of Ireland). They have conceded fewer shots on target than any other team at this year’s European Championships (3 in 4 games).France have attempted 44 more shots than Iceland at Euro 2016 but have scored the same number of goals (6).Iceland are one of two teams, alongside Wales, to have scored in all of their games at Euro 2016.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram The last quarter final of Euro 2016 takes place this evening as the hosts, France, and England’s conquerors, Iceland, clash today for the right to play Germany in the semi finals.Interestingly, Iceland still remain unbeaten at this summer’s championships and are playing without any pressure or expectation. The same can’t be said for the hosts as anything but a win today would be a disaster, although they’ve already shown they have what it takes to recover from a setback.last_img read more

N. Zealand coach wants rules review after ‘hollow’ World Cup final

first_imgHe said that was a shame but the New Zealanders had signed up to the rules that governed the tournament.“At the end of the day nothing separated us, no one lost the final, but there was a crowned winner and there it is,” he told Newstalk ZB.The New Zealand captain and his teammates have been widely praised for the grace with which they accepted the gut-wrenching defeat.“Williamson has shown sports fans and elite athletes alike how to behave with humility, how to accept heartbreak,” columnist Kevin Norquay wrote.“You don’t need to smash your equipment, yell at the umpire, or swear at and threaten rival batsmen, even with the stress of a World Cup on your mind; this news will be foreign territory to some.”There have been calls in New Zealand to give the team a ticker-tape parade, regardless of the result.Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said that was unlikely but she wanted to ensure that the players received “a heroes’ welcome” when they returned to the country.New Zealand Cricket said they were in discussions with the government about when that would take place.“At the moment, however, with some players arriving back at different times, some not arriving back at all, and others having alternative playing commitments, it’s just not practical,” they said.“Hopefully, given the interest surrounding this, we can organise something appropriate in the weeks to come.”Share on: WhatsApp New Zealand’s captain Kane Williamson pointed out his team was not defeated on the pitch, saying it instead fell victim to “fine print” in the rules. Here, he reacts as he waits for the trophy presentation after losing the Cricket World Cup final match against England at Lord’s cricket ground in LondonWellington, New Zealand | AFP | New Zealand coach Gary Stead has called for the Cricket World Cup’s rules to be overhauled, labelling the showpiece final “hollow” after England defeated the Black Caps on a technicality.The teams could not be separated at the end of both regular play and a Super Over shootout, so England were handed victory because they had a superior boundary count.“It’s a very, very hollow feeling that you can play 100 overs and score the same amount of runs and still lose the game, but that’s the technicalities of sport,” Stead told reporters in remarks released by New Zealand Cricket on Tuesday.He said such a thrilling match, which has been hailed by many experts as the greatest one-day game in history, deserved a better way to determine the result.“There’s going to be many things they look at over the whole tournament — I’m sure when they were writing the rules they never expected a World Cup final to happen like that,” he said.“I’m sure it’ll be reviewed (and) there’s many different ways that they’ll probably explore.”Stead shrugged off suggestions England had been mistakenly handed an extra run after a throw from a fielder hit the bat of a diving Ben Stokes’ and deflected to the boundary in the final over of regular play.England were awarded six runs but former umpire Simon Taufel said they should only have got five as the batsmen had not crossed for their second run when the throw was made.“I didn’t actually know that,” Stead said. “But at the end of the day the umpires are there to rule.“They’re human as well, like players, and sometimes there’s a mistake but that’s just the human aspect of sport.”– ‘We didn’t lose’ –Skipper Kane Williamson pointed out his team was not defeated on the pitch, saying it instead fell victim to “fine print” in the rules.last_img read more

Top two sailors re-crowned in National Championships

first_imgAfter a weekend of high performance racing at the Royal Varuna Yacht Club in Pattaya, Keerati Bualong and Kamolwan Chanyim retained their titles as national champions in their respective Olympic class sailboats. In the Laser Standard, Keerati, 21, almost effortlessly reclaimed the title of National Champion for the fifth time over the weekend of February 22-23.  His talented Sattahip training partner and friendly rival Supakon Pongwichean lifted only one bullet point off the Olympian, finishing a respectable second.  Former Dart world champion Gareth Owen took third place ten points behind.Keerati Bualong (left) and Kamolwan Chanyim (right) with the RVYC’s Malee Whitcraft.The leading lady of the fleet, Koravic Bhanubandh, finished an impressive 7th overall, and Charlie Zbinden was named top Laser Great Grand Master (a title reserved for those aged 65 and up), age being no limit in the light conditions. In the Laser Radial fleet, which uses the same hull but a slightly smaller sail for sailors of lighter weight, the Kingdom Property sponsored Kamolwan Chanyim, 18, finished second behind visiting Singaporean Jevyn Ong after overcoming the first day’s challenge by current European Grand Master Champion Max Hunt of the UK and taking first place from Jevyn in two of the final day’s races.  She had secured her title for the third time on the first day however as the top Thai national in the fleet, finishing the first four races well ahead of Sattahip’s sailing sisters Kanapan and Yanakamin Pachatikapanya.Top Laser Radial sailors (from L to R): Neil Dunkley, Kamolwan Chanyim, Jevyn Ong and Max Hunt.The event welcomed sailors from the UK, Myanmar, Singapore, Japan, and Sweden, setting the bar high for those after a podium finish.Wind proved initially elusive on the first day of racing, only just filling in enough to race by the noon start.  Sattahip’s Keerati quickly showed he was in top form with his first win of the weekend.  The RVYC’s Gareth did his best to keep him in sight and finished second.The second race saw the race committee resort to a black flag start as the tide was pushing the boats over the line.  Two boats still fell afoul of being over the line and were duly penalized, as Supakon followed Keerati home.At the start of the third race it was fun and games at the pin end of the start line with one incident resulting in the only protest of the weekend.  Supakon managed to take a win in the third race, but Keerati was close behind.  The final race of the day reverted to form with Keerati followed by Supakon, but this time chased home by Don Whitcraft.In the Radial, Singapore’s Jevyn showed off his masterful boat speed skills to take three firsts and a second on the first day.  Just behind, there was a tight battle for second place between Max and Kamolwan.  Max starred in the third race, taking a race win.  Kamolwan fought back to finish in front of Max in the last race of the day, but both allowed Kanapan to get through to second to follow Jevyn across the line.Royal Varuna Yacht Club a hive of activity on race weekend.The tide was a bit stronger for Sunday’s early start, but there was enough wind to get the racing underway.  In the Standard, the domination of the top two continued.  They were obviously enjoying the light to medium wind and catching shifts up the first beat, getting across to the right side where a little extra wind and a lift paid off.  Behind them, the RVYC’s Chris Dando and Don Whitcraft took third places in the first three races of the day.For the final race of the championship, both Keerati and Supakon decided they had secured the top spots and went home for an early shower.  Again the right of the beat paid and it was Japanese Shin Suenaga who led round the first mark.  He was chased by the UK’s Peter Young with the rest of the pack bunched together behind.  Eventually Peter managed to run Shin down and take the lead downwind to win the final race of the Championship.Also on Sunday, the top of the Radial fleet saw a great battle between Jevyn and Kamolwan, the young sailors showing the more experienced mariners chasing them just how to do it.  Four races were sailed and both took two wins and two seconds.last_img read more
