Indian Super League: Marcelo brace hands Delhi 3-1 win over Chennaiyin

first_imgBrazilian winger Marcelo Pereira struck a brace as Delhi Dynamos defeated defending champions Chennaiyin FC 3-1 in an Indian Super League (ISL) match at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here on Thursday.Playing their first match this season, Delhi Dynamos turned on the magic with Marcelo (26th, 34th minutes) scoring both his goals side in the first session after Dudu Omagbemi (32nd) had briefly cancelled out his first goal.Badara Badji put the match beyond Chennaiyin FC’s reach with the visitors’ third goal in the 86th minute.Chennaiyin FC are without a win from their first two matches after drawing their opening match against Atletico de Kolkata.The hosts paid for some poor defending with Delhi catching them on the wrong foot repeatedly with their fast counter-attacks.Playing at home for the first time, the defending champions started with a flurry but could not break the deadlock. In the eighth minute, Chennaiyin’s Raphael Augusto spotted Mohanraj’s run from the left who crossed for Dudu but the Nigerian striker’s header sailed just wide.Bernard Mendy then went close in the next minute with another header and Jeje Lalpekhlua had his chance to draw first blood but could not beat Delhi goalkeeper Toni Doblas from close range.Delhi soon recovered from the initial Chennaiyin FC attacks and took the lead after Milan Singh won a penalty. Milan spotted a long cross from Souvik Chakraborty and was making his run when he was brought down by Chennaiyin FC goalkeeper Duwayne Kerr. Marcelinho stepped up to take the penalty and sent the goalkeeper the wrong way.advertisementChennaiyin FC, however, did not take too long to draw level. Dudu was afforded space by the Delhi defence and he made them pay by latching on to a through ball from Jeje and slamming it past a diving Delhi goalkeeper.Chennaiyin FC were now back in the game but Delhi took they by surprise again two minutes later as Marcelinho hoodwinked the rival defence and gave Kerr no chance with a first-time attempt.Had Delhi converted the chances that came their way after being 2-1 ahead, the match would have been killed by half-time. Kean Lewis missed a golden chance with only the goalkeeper at his mercy as he shot wide and then Marcelinho took one touch too many, allowing Chennaiyin FC goalkeeper to grab the ball and keep his team in the hunt.In the second session, Delhi Dynamos were comfortable with the ball and rarely looked threatened.Chennaiyin FC, on the other hand, tried to find a way past the rival defence without much success. Sensing that he needs to do something different, Chennaiyin manager Marco Materazzi opted to field three strikers for the last 20 minutes of play but instead it were Delhi Dynamos who tasted success.Delhi made it 3-1 with six minutes left on the clock when a Kean Lewis cross from the left was finished with a thumping header by substitute Badara Badji.last_img read more

Lindelof United deserved more in the tie

Didier Deschamps accepts responsibility for disappointing display

first_imgFrance national team manager Didier Deschamps said France couldn’t impress following Holland defeat which has kept them in danger of failing to qualify for the Nations League finals.However, the team hopes Germany would beat Holland on Monday to ensure a top spot in Group A1.The Coach on his own admitted responsibility alongside his players for their unimpressive game and surprise setback.“There was a team in front of us with a lot of envy and we were not good enough,” Deschamps was said via the French FA website as quoted by BT Sport.“In the aggressiveness, there was no picture tonight and it’s logical that this team from the Netherlands wins this match.”Opinion: Neymar will earn respect back from the PSG fans Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After completing his incredible return to Parc des Princes, we predict that Neymar will earn the respect back from PSG supporters.The situation between Neymar…“And I do not exclude myself from this analysis.”Captain Lloris added that France must now  rely on Germany during the final group fixture.“The opponent was very strong. For our part, we did not meet the requirements of the highest level,” Lloris told L’Equipe.“We played below our potential and we paid for it. The score could have been more flattering for the Netherlands.“We must challenge ourselves after this defeat and hope for a victory for Germany.”last_img read more

The make of the car had something to do with it –and– the fact that the driver walked away. But that doesn’t negate the seriousness of “what could have happened.”As we arrived early Friday morning, a larger than normal SDG&E repair crew was along a narrow winding road in Rancho Sante Fe called Avenida de la Acacias which traverses the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club.The reason they were here: The overnight crash of a $200,000 Ferrari, which after going off the road, took out a forty-foot power pole, knocking out power to 84 customers in the area, including part of the golf club.The reason “we” are here is the fact that not only did the driver apparently not suffer a serious injury, or worse, he got out of the exotic sports car despite the electrified lines that came down all around along with the pole.To emphasize the danger of that, arriving firefighters and Sheriff’s deputies couldn’t access the car for an hour until the wires could be stilled. To their surprise no one was in the Ferrari.The driver left the scene before the first responders arrived. Had he be ejected from the car. A search of the area, including by Sheriff’s helicopter, turned up nothing.Speaking of the area, the driver’s also lucky the car didn’t off into an adjacent golf course canyon.As much as we marveled that the driver of the Ferrari escaped injury and got out of the car despite the wires, a Rancho Santa Fe resident with whom we spoke live on Good Morning San Diego says this is a real problem here, high performance cars going too fast on winding roads.Jim Townsend said the number of accidents in the wealthy community involving exotic cars going too fast on winding roads where the speed limit is 35 to 45, was astonishing.We are awaiting a call back from the CHP about locating the driver. last_img read more

Will Texas Have Enough Workers For LongTerm Recovery After Hurricane Harvey

first_img X – / 3One of the big workforce issues after a hurricane is purely practical, and that’s having places for recovery workers to live so they won’t have to drive in from long distances.Port Isabel City Manager Jared Hockema was one of the officials testifying before the House Business and Industry Committee at a hearing held on South Padre Island. “We already don’t have housing for our existing workforce right now,” said Hockema. “And so if you look at the people working in these hotels and restaurants, they don’t live here because we do not have adequate affordable housing.”Hockema said one thing the state can do is give counties more authority to establish building and floodplain regulations. That could lead to more storm-resistant housing.“Those tools are what allow you to establish a resilient, robust housing stock that can withstand a hurricane,” explained Hockema. “So you don’t lose such a large percentage of your housing and you have that housing available for your workforce.”Also testifying was South Padre Island City Manager Susan Guthrie, who said affordable housing is also an issue in her community. Guthrie said most of their city workers don’t even live on the island and commute from nearby communities.“Getting workforce, just the general workforce here post-storm, much less the relief workers, is really a challenge,” added Guthrie. “And especially when you’re talking about one way on, one way off this island.”The committee will hold another hearing Thursday in Brownsville.
