Since making his debut for the national team in October 2015, Iwobi has grown to become one of the important players in the new Super Eagles set up. Iwobi who spoke to the Super Eagles media team credited his former skipper for his quick adaptation into the African brand of football. “In training, whilst watching him on the pitch, whilst I’m on the bench watching him, I’ve always learned, the way he’s physically capable to keep the ball in tight situations because playing in African culture there’s a lot more physicality, there are a lot more strong duels, the way he’s able to use his body is something I have picked up and try to add to my game.” Iwobi said.Advertisement Iwobi enjoyed good success with John Mikel Obi in the National before his retirement in 2019. They both helped Nigeria qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and the pair also helped the team finished third in the 2019 African cup of Nations in Egypt. read also:Iwobi to face title chasing Liverpool on neutral ground Meanwhile, since the departure of the former Chelsea and Trabzonspor’s midfielder from the three-time African champions, Iwobi has stepped up into his role and currently operates as the number 10 for Gernot Rohr’s side.

“He was the guy putting in tackles and training as hard as anybody else so as a young player you have two ways of seeing this. Either you say, ‘Wow this guy is the captain of the club, has won this, won that, if he is training like this I cannot do less. I will not be better than him because quality is quality but in terms of commitment and hard work, I have to match that.’ “Then you have those players who will think, ‘If this guy is behaving like this there’s no way I can catch him up so there’s no point for me to train.’ Unfortunately, I have seen players behave like this and have that attitude. read also:Vieira reveals Arsenal manager’s job admission after Arteta appointment “For me on my side I always thought, ‘If these guys are doing this, I cannot allow myself to do less.’ Again, it is not about quality but it is about commitment in training. I do feel that when Patrick left, we had great players coming in, but that space he had within the team, within the club, was perhaps too big to fill for any player.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Former Arsenal fullback, Gael Clichy, has lauded Patrick Vieira for his leadership skills. Vieira was the captain of Arsenal during one of their most successful periods, which included their Invincibles season of 2003/04. “Patrick was someone who, when he was on the pitch in training, I felt pressure,” Clichy told the club’s website. “Not because he was shouting at young players or because he was demanding too much, but just because of his charisma and the way he was.Advertisement Loading… Promoted Content7 Universities In The World Where Education Costs Too MuchCan Playing Too Many Video Games Hurt Your Body?7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterLaugh, Cry, Or Just Relax With The Best Series Streaming On HBO6 Ridiculous Health Myths That Are Actually True12 Movies That Almost Ended Their Stars’ Careers6 Amazing Shows From The 90s That Need A Reboot Right NowPortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D Graffiti10 Hyper-Realistic 3D Street Art By OdeithWho Earns More Than Ronaldo?Ever Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?

Hull gave their more illustrious visitors more than one scare with the scores tied but Dzeko’s second and a fourth in three games from substitute Frank Lampard sealed a 4-2 win for the visitors. And Pellegrini revealed he was always confident of getting the right result. “I really was very calm because I don’t think it was the real (rightful) score in the first half,” he said. “You must have personality and character when that happens to try and return to normal. “I felt during half-time the players were clear about what happened, it was not that we were playing badly. “The way we started (I felt) we were going to win the game in the second half and we did. I was very happy about that.” Pellegrini also played down his decision to hand Willy Cabellero a Premier League debut in place of England number one Joe Hart. Caballero was brought to City as a credible challenger for the gloves and retained his place following his appearance in the 7-0 Capital One Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday. The Barclays Premier League champions were 2-0 in front inside 11 minutes as Edin Dzeko followed Sergio Aguero’s opener with a wonderful strike from the edge of the area. At that stage victory seemed a formality but £32million defender Eliaquim Mangala gave the Tigers a route back, putting a bullet header into his own net then conceding a penalty which Abel Hernandez stroked home. “I think for Willy it was good to play not just one game but to play two in a row,” he said. “Joe played eight games in 32 days, a lot of games for a goalkeeper. I have a squad of 22, 23 players and I make rotations because I think it is better for the team. “In this case I think it was good for Willy.” Pellegrini had a word of consolation for Mangala, who endured a bumpy ride following an outstanding debut against Chelsea last weekend. “I think you cannot analyse a player on one match,” he said. “Not the last game when he played wonderfully and everyone said he was the best defender in the world and not today because he was very unlucky with the own-goal and the penalty.” Hull boss Steve Bruce was buoyed by his players’ response to Manchester City’s blistering start but admitted they had ultimately been beaten by the better side. “We had an awful 10-15 minutes at the start and it shows character that they rolled their sleeves up and got back into it,” said Bruce. “For a good hour after that it could have gone either way. We weren’t quite good enough but we gave it a right good go and against a quality team like them that’s all you can ask for. “City are a class act. They want to go and beat you, they want to go and give every team a hammering and they’ve got the players to go that. “Aguero, Dezeko and David Silva, in particular, are wonderful footballers and they’ll give every team problems.” Manuel Pellegrini never doubted his Manchester City side would see off Hull, despite throwing away a two-goal lead in the first half.

GLENS FALLS — Joe Girard III, a member of Syracuse’s 2019 recruiting class, needed 29 points on Sunday night to reach 4,000 in his Glens Falls (New York) High School career. To almost everyone in the Cool Insuring Arena, that somewhat large number seemed a foregone conclusion. It’d be easy for a senior guard averaging nearly 50 points per game to hit 29.But Girard started slow before heating up and finishing with 52 in a Glens Falls win. He made 17 shots from the floor, including three 3-pointers, and added 15 free throws.Here’s a look at the baskets that brought Girard to the milestone total and beyond, up to 4,023 points in his high school career.Points 1 and 2: After missing his first shot from the floor, Girard decided he needed to attack the basket to find an early rhythm. So on a transition opportunity, he used an in-and-out dribble with his right hand to attack toward the right block. Girard weathered the contact and finished for an and-1, although he missed the free throw.“Fastbreaks I knew I was gonna try and get myself going,” Girard said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Points 16 and 17: After popping out to the left corner as he’d done earlier, Girard sold his cut before sliding backdoor. His teammate lobbed a pass in, so Girard went up to grab it before finishing another and-1. He flexed after the finish, but then missed the foul shot. Points 3 and 4: Girard again chooses to attack the basket instead of settling for a perimeter jumper. He’d missed four-straight shots since the opening layup. As his teammate approaches to set a screen to drive left, Girard instead attacks right, double clutches near the basket, and lays it in. Points 42 and 43: Girard took it upon himself to break the Amsterdam press. On this play, he simply wouldn’t stop. Multiple defenders tried to throw themselves in front of him, but Girard kept going right and made it all the way to the basket.“I knew I had to help our team win,” Girard said. “… I wanted the ball in my hands.” He kept going right, @JG3_____ up to 43 and GF up 7 pic.twitter.com/uHa9YEM3Df— Billy Heyen (@Wheyen3) January 28, 2019 Comments Points 8 and 9: On the next trip after that 3, Girard drove to the basket and couldn’t get a roll on the rim. But since he’d beaten a few defenders to get into the lane, he was relatively open to rise right back up and tip it in with two hands.Points 10, 11, 12: Early on, Glens Falls used Girard as their baseline inbounder multiple times. On this occasion, inbounding from the left side underneath the basket, he passed the ball out top before cutting off a screen to the left corner. After hesitating a moment, he rose up to knock down a 3 for his first basket in the second quarter.“It’s an IQ play of coming off a screen how your defender’s playing you,” Girard said. Point 46: Girard made one-of-two on a trip to the line as Amsterdam ramped up the pressure to try and get steals with a small deficit late.Points 47 and 48: On this baseline out of bounds, Girard set up near the elbow and benefited from a good inbounds pass. He faked as if going out to the corner before sliding toward the block and finishing on the left side of the rim.“Just being tough and trying to carve out a way to get a shot off,” Girard said of this finish.

Then he faded even further than the stepback took him. But he drained the 3 in his defender’s face to get within three points of 4,000. Four points for @JG3_____ . GF leads 6-5. He’s 25 from 4K pic.twitter.com/1zmPPmtjyz— Billy Heyen (@Wheyen3) January 28, 2019 And @JG3_____ is on the board through contact. Two points, free throw miss pic.twitter.com/E6gcNxj2Yu— Billy Heyen (@Wheyen3) January 28, 2019 Points 5, 6, 7: Girard misfired on his first three 3-point attempts. But on the fourth, he used a screen to go right. Even with a hard hedge, the senior created space for himself near the right wing, dribbling almost parallel to the foul line. Girard rose up and knocked down the 3. Points 13, 14, 15: Girard, for the second time, went to the in-and-out right-handed dribble to get to the rim. Again, he finished through the contact. This time, he added the free throw.“When your shots aren’t falling, even at the free throw line, you’ve got to kind of find other ways to score,” Girard said of attacking the basket. Here’s @JG3_____ hitting his first 3. Then he gets a tip back. 9 points, 20 from 4K. pic.twitter.com/VBissEAQJK— Billy Heyen (@Wheyen3) January 28, 2019 Points 18 and 19: Girard finished another putback basket to go into halftime with 19 points. That’s a slow start for him, and his father was nervous.Points 20 and 21: Girard got the second half underway with a pull-up 3 from the top of the arc. It went awry, but the whistle blew, signaling a foul. Girard made the first and third free throws.“When the ball’s in my hand, there’s a lot of focus on it,” Girard said of being hounded by his defenders.Points 22 and 23: Amsterdam, Glens Falls’ opponents, used full-court pressure for much of the game. When Girard and the Indians could break it, that led to easy opportunities like it did here. Good ball movement ended with a cutting Girard being fed the ball for an easy finish on the right side of the rim. Points 44 and 45: Again, Girard made it his duty to be a one-man press break. No defender in front of him had the answer, and he eventually hop-stepped to finish inside.“At the end of the game, I was tired, but you kept looking at the score, and it kept being closer and closer,” Girard said, “and big time players make big time plays at the right time.” Another and-1 for @JG3_____.

GF up 4 with 44 seconds left. pic.twitter.com/48EEk8euku— Billy Heyen (@Wheyen3) January 28, 2019 Points 27, 28, 29: Another slice along the right baseline gave Girard an opportunity to finish off the glass, and he did. Even with limited contact, the whistle blew, and that sent Girard to the foul line for a bonus foul shot. Just as he broke the New York state all-time scoring record from the linea free throw, he reached 4,000 points on a free throw, too.“Struggled a little bit in the beginning but just had to keep up my confidence,” Girard said. “Make sure that I was playing my game and when I got to the line had to step up confidently like I said, and on that shot I felt good.” Points 49, 50, 51, 52: Girard iced a four-point win for Glens Falls with four free throws down the stretch, both perfect two-of-two trips to the line.“Our main focus today was winning,” Girard said. “And the only way to do that was make your free throws at the end of the game.” Points 30 and 31: After being fouled as a ball-handler, Girard knocked down both on a one-and-one trip to the line.Points 32 and 33: Girard stripped the Amsterdam dribbler near half court before breaking away for an easy finish. There was a quick buzz around the Cool Insuring Arena in anticipation of a dunk attempt, but Girard just placed it softly off the glass.Points 34 and 35: Girard swished two more free throws to put early troubles at the foul line behind him.Points 36 and 37: Another strip of an Amsterdam ball handler. Another clear runway to the rim. Another simple layup.Points 38 and 39: Girard worked back to the foul line one more time in a tight game and made both foul shots.Points 40 and 41: Showing a comfort against Amsterdam’s full-court press, Girard worked his way to the middle of the floor. From there, he cut back to his right hand before holding off a defender and extending to finish.

Over 80 percent of reports to Human Services are about incest.The head of Saint Lucia’s Department of Social Services, has reported that her department is receiving ‘alarming’ reports of incest and wants the activity to stop.According to the department incest continues to be a ‘real issue’ for the Department of Human Services.“A lot of our reports, over 80 percent of our reports, are that of incestuous relationships. Particularly of sexual relationships between fathers and daughters, siblings and other family members,” Director of Social Services on the island, Elizabeth Lewis, said. A longstanding issueLewis said her department recognizes that incest has been a long standing issue in the society.Several reasons have been offered to explain why incest occurs, but there has never been any research to determine what the issue really is.Lewis said incest is a source of concern for the Department of Human Services.“We are always concerned because we recognize that it is a criminal offence in Saint Lucia,” she told St Lucia Times, adding that the activity has a devastating psychological effect on victims and families.“Persons who have these tendencies need to see a psychologist – they need to see a counsellor to deal with whatever issues that they have,” Lewis said.Lewis said persons who know of cases of incest should report the matter to the authorities.“What we are seeing a lot of times is that victims of incest become perpetrators of it,” she observed. Brother propositioned his two sistersShe spoke against the backdrop of reports in the local media this week that that a local woman and her sister were propositioned by their brother during a WhatsApp conversation.One of the women said the brother even wanted to arrange for her to spend time with him at a guest house where they could have sexual relations.The woman, who said she was angry and disgusted, disclosed that she shared the offensive messages with the rest of her family and told the brother she wanted nothing to do with him anymore.She also said she spoke with the man’s wife out of concern of what he may do to his own children.She said her brother then asserted that she was accusing him in an effort to obtain family property.“He even told someone that he did not know it was me – he thought that it was his wife he was messaging,” she said.
