..Grenada , Nicaragua collect first winsJAMAICA’s young Reggae Boyz twice came from behind to secure a 2-2 draw with traditional powerhouses Mexico, maintaining a perfect start to the CONCACAF U-20 Championship.El Tricolor got goals from a Javain Brown (21st OG) and a Jose Macias penalty conversion (66th ), while the Reggae Boyz were boosted by goals from Leonardo Jibbison (61st ) and Tyreek Magee (71st ).The Caribbean team found themselves trailing after what had been an even first period when a cross into the area deflected into the back of the net off Brown, who had battled to clear his lines.The Reggae Boyz would, however, restore parity midway the second half when Jibbison’s fierce strike from the top of area nestled into the corner of the net, giving Mexican custodian Carlos Higuera no chance. The Mexicans once again claimed the lead when Macias’ well-taken penalty beat Jamaica’s shot-stopper Jeadine White, after Diego Lainez was brought down in the area. Another beauty, this time from Magee once again pulled the teams even. Magee belted the ball high into the roof from 35 yards, after slithering into a pocket of space.The result meant that both Jamaica and Mexico remain unbeaten in the group after three set of matches. The teams are locked on seven points apiece, but Mexico are leading the six-team table on goal difference.Earlier, both Grenada and Nicaragua collected their first wins of the campaign.Grenada downed Saint Martin 5-2, yet it was Saint Martin who struck early through Nolan Freyer (1st ) before Jesron Charles (21st , 27th ) bagged his brace. Rahim Stephen (30th , 66th ) had a brace of his own, sandwiching a Saint Martin goal from Isais Pagesy (56th ), and the fifth and final Grenada goal came via Dorrel Pierre in the 87th.In a hard-fought battle in the group’s second game, goals in the 74th and 79th powered Nicaragua to a 2-1 win over Aruba. A Mark Jacobs own goal opened the scoring and it was soon 2-0 thanks to Alexander Caldera.Aruba never threw in the towel though and a Keanu Maduro score in the 90+2’ provided hope, but Nicaragua held on to collect the three points.

Photo: Karel Švec, Czech hockeyRival! And a huge sadness. The death of Miloš Říha affected Czech hockey, and it is also well received in Russia and Slovakia, where an experienced coach also worked successfully. His friends can’t believe that the former excellent striker and later a quality coach is no longer with us … At such times, it is difficult to remember and go back in time. “I’m sorry, but I can’t speak. It’s a shock, “Miroslav Fryčer reacts. The coach of Znojmo spent beautiful times with Říha in Vítkovice, the later national team coach once selflessly provided him with his passport to help with the planned emigration.Ladislav Svozil was also at war with Říha in Vítkovice. “Miloš and I have known each other for many years, for me it has always been a great heartbeat who has had hockey in the first place. I will not forget that common hockey time. There are few people like that – in the good sense of the word, crazy about sports like him. He loved hockey, but he also liked to play tennis, for example, “says the assistant at the extra-league team Vítkovice.Svozil: We had a similar humor, we constantly stabbed ourselvesBoth belonged to the team that won the championship in 1981. Like Miroslav Fryčer, František Černík, Jaromír Šindel and other members of the famous generation. “Miloš had some success with Jihlava as well, but others were the basis of the team. I think he considered success with Vítkovice the most. We had an amazing bunch. I like to look at our master poster from time to time in the office, unfortunately, our ranks are thinning too fast. ”He was in constant contact with a friend whom his friends called nothing but “Poacher”. “As soon as we met, there was constant hacking. We had a similar humor, we kept stabbing each other, so to speak. Milos was perfect in this. “Svozil knew that the former longtime partner was not in good health.” But I absolutely didn’t think it would turn out like this. He was in the best of care. will be good again. But unfortunately … ”Robert Reichel speaks in a similar way. The Olympic winner from Nagano and the three-time world champion has been Miloš Říha’s closest collaborator with the national team in recent years. “We kept calling and keeping in touch. I did not know the details, but I believed that Miloš would overcome health problems. His death struck me deeply. When someone leaves at the age of only 61, it is a huge tragedy, “he says quietly.Reichel: Miloš and I had two most beautiful yearsIn June 2018, fate wanted that the hockey routes of Reichl and Říha drew an intersection. Today, after two years, a former Toronto or Calgary player considers this a great fortune. “I spent two most beautiful years with Miloš. I met him as a great man and a good person who was always fair, “Reichel recalls.Although Říha commanded the national team as the head coach, he gave the assistants plenty of space. He was curious about their opinion. “He had the last word, but otherwise we discussed and solved everything together. Milos had charisma, he lived it to the fullest. And he didn’t let anything talk about him, I liked it a lot about him, “adds Říh’s colleague.Both were preparing for their second championship this year. In Bratislava, their team narrowly missed the bronze medal, before the event in Switzerland they were making plans and wanted to capitalize on all the experience of the two-year cycle on the interstate scene. When the coronavirus pandemic decided otherwise, they talked about another possible engagement at the club level. “It simply came to our notice then. Most of all, I wished Miloš could handle his health problems and be fine again. I can’t believe he’s not between us anymore. ”Řepík: He was able to wake up the cabin, he experienced everything very stronglyThe sudden death of the coach also affected the Czech national team. “I was shocked by the tragic news,” admits Michal Řepík. “We all knew that Mr. Říha was hospitalized in IKEM. I hoped for a positive development and wished that he would be fine again soon,” the Prague Sparta striker said.Řepík played under the direction of Miloš Říha at last year’s championship in Bratislava, he also met him during his engagement in the local Slav. “I have a lot of memories. Miloš Říha may have been a bit of his own, but he loved hockey. He devoted his whole life to him, first playing him himself and then training him. If he didn’t have hockey in his heart, he certainly wouldn’t stay with him. ”An experienced coach has established himself not only at home, but also in Russia. In the Continental League. “He successfully led Atlant or St. Petersburg. He had results, he managed to pull down the player. I will remember my emotions the most. He could wake the cabin, he experienced everything very strongly. He paid a lot of attention to the team, to team performance. His unexpected death is a big shock for me, “he concludes.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — An injury-marred season continues for Ravens left tackle Eugene Monroe as he remains sidelined with a shoulder ailment suffered in Monday’s loss to Arizona.Monroe missed his second straight day of practice on Thursday, creating further doubt about his availability for Sunday’s meeting with the San Diego Chargers. The seventh-year lineman missed three games earlier this season after suffering a concussion on the opening drive of the season opener.Should Monroe not play, second-year tackle James Hurst would start in his place despite his immense early-season struggles. Fortunately for the Baltimore offense, the Chargers have not shown a consistent ability to create pressure on the quarterback with just 12 sacks in seven games this season.Other players missing from Thursday’s practice included cornerback Tray Walker (concussion) and wide receiver Breshad Perriman (knee).Veteran wide receiver Steve Smith was added to Thursday’s injury report as a limited participant due to a knee issue. Also limited in the workout were safety Kendrick Lewis (knee), left guard Kelechi Osemele (knee), and tight end Maxx Williams (knee/ankle).Safety Terrence Brooks (thumb) was upgraded to full participation and appears on track to make his return after a two-game absence.Meanwhile, San Diego was once again without Pro Bowl tight end Antonio Gates (knee) and Pro Bowl safety Eric Weddle (groin).Below is Thursday’s full injury report:BALTIMOREDID NOT PARTICIPATE: OT Eugene Monroe (shoulder), WR Breshad Perriman (knee), CB Tray Walker (concussion)LIMITED PARTICIPATION: G Kelechi Osemele (knee), S Kendrick Lewis (knee), WR Steve Smith (knee), TE Maxx Williams (knee, ankle)FULL PARTICIPATION: S Terrence Brooks (thumb)SAN DIEGODID NOT PARTICIPATE: G Orlando Franklin (ankle), TE Antonio Gates (knee), G/T Chris Hairston (illness), NT Sean Lissemore (hamstring), LB Denzel Perryman (biceps), LB Manti Te’o (ankle), S Eric Weddle (groin)LIMITED PARTICIPATION: CB Craig Mager (hamstring), LB Tourek Williams (foot)FULL PARTICIPATION: RB Melvin Gordon (ankle), C Chris Watt (groin, concussion)
La Liga outfit Barcelona have paid 15 million euros to Atletico Madrid for the right of first refusal on six Atletico players according to reports from AFP on Tuesday.AFP reports that sources from Atletico say the agreement has “nothing to do” with the dispute between the two clubs over the transfer of Antoine Griezmann last summer.“It is a right of first refusal on a list of players primarily from the academy,” these sources added.Spanish newspaper El Mundo had claimed on Tuesday the fee is to “make peace in the Griezmann case”.The agreement allows Barcelona to match or exceed any offers for those players whenever the player wants to leave, Atletico agree to sell and an acceptable bid arrives from a separate club.Griezmnann left Atletico for Barcelona when the Catalan club activated his release clause of 120 million euros in July.Atletico claimed they were due 200 million euros from the transfer because they said Griezmann had agreed to move to Barca in March, before the clause dropped on July 1.The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) fined Barcelona 300 euros on September 26 for failing to notify Atletico they were in talks with the Frenchman.But the RFEF concluded there was no evidence Griezmann had signed a formal contract with Barca.Related
Infinite Esports & Entertainment‘s purchase is close to being a done deal with a meeting next Monday revealing the outcome, sources have told Esports Insider.Immortals Gaming Club – the parent company of Immortals, MIBR, Los Angeles Valiant, and Gamers Club – is the front runner to acquire the majority share in the parent company of OpTic Gaming, OpTic LoL, and Houston Outlaws.Photo credit: LoL EsportsEsports Insider can confirm reports that surfaced earlier in the week regarding a meeting that took place between Ari Segal, CEO of Immortals, Neil Leibman, and Hector “H3CZ” Rodriguez, CEO of OpTic Gaming. The discussion involved Segal gauging whether Rodriguez would be interested in a potential role should Immortals Gaming Club be successful.It’s currently a two-horse race when it comes to parties being in the running to acquire the company, with Immortals Gaming Club going up against Rodriguez and Chris Chaney, Founder and Co-owner of Infinite Esports & Entertainment. The exact outcome of Wednesday’s meeting hasn’t been made known to all parties at the time of writing, though the impending meeting will indeed be the source of the decision.Earlier this week, Esports Insider reported that Immortals Gaming Club was “very likely” to be successful in the purchase of the majority share. Should the company prove successful in its bid, it’s expected to set up a holding company for Overwatch League franchise Houston Outlaws while it attempts to sell it – reported ownership rules means it can’t retain the brand as it already owns Los Angeles Valiant.If Rodriquez and Chaney are unsuccessful in their attempt to purchase majority ownership in Infinite Esports & Entertainment then it’s expected that they would attempt to acquire a spot in Activision Blizzard‘s upcoming franchised Call of Duty league, according to sources.Esports Insider says: It appears that this situation is going the way that it was expected to earlier in the week, though it’s not quite over just yet. It’s hard to predict what Immortals Gaming Club would do with the OpTic Gaming brand should the deal go in its favour but it’s even harder to see an outcome where the organisations remains fully intact.Follow ESI on Instagram

More than 3,000 people turn out in Sattahip to walk and run for HM Queen Sirikit’s birthday.That facility, however, wasn’t large enough to serve the growing Sattahip Naval Station area. The hospital gained the backing of HM the Queen, who laid the cornerstone for the main building on Aug. 18, 1992. More than 3,000 people turned out to walk and run for HM Queen Sirikit’s birthday and raise money for royal charities. The Queen Sirikit Naval Medical Center held the fifth Mother’s Day walk-run at Sattahip’s Hospital Health Park to honor HM the Queen for lending her name to the area’s largest hospital and to raise funds she can dispense to charities of her choice.Adm. Suriya Na Nakhon, president of the Queen Sirikit Hospital Foundation, noted that the Royal Thai Navy founded Queen Sirikit Hospital in 1992 to bolster the public-health system in Sattahip, which had been primarily served by Apakorn Kiatwong Hospital.
