The spell of good play from the Azkals was highlighted by a couple of big opportunities in the 35th minute. Curt Dizon cut inside from the right and stung the palm of the Nepalese keeper Kiran Limbu, who could only save the ball into the path of Mike Ott. The diminutive atttacker, however, couldn’t get solid contact with the Kiran to beat. Just after the hour mark, Kiran was called into action by Simone Rota, who rifled a long range effort. The rebound fell to skipper Phil Younghusband, who sprayed his effort wide. The game opened up late in the second half as the Azkals threw men forward and Junior Munoz and De Murga had to make a couple of timely blocks to deny the hosts from going ahead. Azkals coach Thomas Dooley sent Pika Minegishi and James Younghusband into the fray in the hopes of boosting the attack. Off an Iain Ramsay’s inswinging corner, the ball found its way Sato, whose free header was cleared off the line in the 83rd minute. Well drilled and disciplined defensively for most of the contest, the Nepalese rode their luck in stoppage time.

Chelsea’s best attack line revealed! Is Drogba right?

first_img Chelsea won the double in 2009/10 1 Veteran Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has hailed the Blues’ current attack force, labelling them the most attacking side he has been a part of.Although he accepted that it will matter little unless they are rewarded with trophies at the end of the season, the Ivory Coast international proclaimed Jose Mourinho’s latest crop of forwards as the best he’s played alongside.That’s some high praise indeed, especially considering the exemplary line-ups Drogba has been apart of in his two spells with the club.During his eight-and-a-half collective years of Stamford Bridge service, Drogba has been part of a side that blew the Premier League away, storming to a record points haul in the process, and featured heavily in the side that bagged a record number of league goals in 2009/10. So is he right with his latest claim?talkSPORT takes a look…NUMBER OF GOALS SCOREDFollowing their recent 5-0 demolition of Schalke in the Champions League, Chelsea took their current tally for the season to a hugely impressive 48 goals in all competitions. The Blues may be well on course to breeze past the 100 mark, but they have some way to go if they are to surpass the sensational tally of 142 that Carlo Ancelotti’s 2009/10 double winners achieved.That year the Blues bagged a Premier League record 103 goals and scored 17 times en route to winning the FA Cup.The 2004/05 and 2005/06 league winning sides both reached the 90+ points mark – a phenomenal achievement – but weren’t known for their prolific front lines. Both scored a respectable, if slightly low 72 goals each in the league.WINNER: Chelsea 2009/10 team with 142 goals in all competitionsSPREAD OF GOALSBy the end of the current campaign, Drogba’s claim may eventually ring true, but for the moment, there is a pretty heavy weighting of goals – in the Premier League at least – on one man.Diego Costa has been arguably the signing of the summer and his blistering start to life in England has been commendable, even more so given his 11 league goals so far. There is no one really looking to challenge the Spaniard though in the scoring charts, with Eden Hazard the closest with six goals in all competitions.When looking exclusively at strikers though, rather than attacking lines as a collective, and this disparity is even more noticeable, with Loic Remy and Drogba recording two and four goals apiece.Once again, the attack line of ‘09/10 stands out, with four of the club’s six recognised attacking players reaching double figures for the season and Drogba himself ending the campaign with a mammoth 37 goals in all competitions.Indeed even Florent Malouda and Nicolas Anelka pitched in with 15 goals each and Salomon Kalou hitting 12.However, in terms of an attack line’s contribution, the exploits of Chelsea’s 2004/05 team just shades them. While three of the six recognised attackers hit double figures that season, they contributed 67 of the overall total of 108 goals, equating to 62 per-cent, narrowly edging out the ‘09/10 attack line, who contributed 60 per-cent of goals scored.WINNER: Chelsea 2004/05WHAT DID THEY ACTUALLY WIN?As Drogba concedes, all talk about this Chelsea side and it’s attack line as the ‘best ever’ will be in vain if the Blues fail to win silverware. Although it is still incredibly early, their lead at the top of the Premier League – while still just six points – is already looking unassailable, but they will need more that just league honours to underline themselves as a true vintage.Indeed the 2004/05 league winners are hailed as a great team for winning two trophies, as well as setting a new Premier League points record, something that perhaps sees them rather than the arguably stronger side of 12 months later as a side fondly remembered by fans.Once again however, it is the 2009/10 side that comes out on top in this regard, with Carlo Ancelotti’s team winning a league and FA Cup double. Although they came up short on the European front – crashing out at the last 16 stage to Jose Mourinho’s Inter Milan side – on the domestic scene they were kings.WINNER: Chelsea 2009/10 – Premier League champions and FA Cup winners.Chelsea fans, who do you think was the club’s best modern-day attack line?

Encino SWAT standoff ends peacefully

first_img Detectives are currently investigating the incident and have not yet released the suspect’s name. For more cops and crime news, check out It’s a Crime. ENCINO – Police have taken a suicidal man accused of assaulting a woman into custody after an hours-long standoff on Burbank Boulevard this morning. Around 9:15 a.m., the woman left the apartment in the 16900 block of Burbank Boulevard seeking help. Deputy Chief Michel Moore said the suspect claimed to have a handgun and threatened to harm himself and officers. He said the man had prior encounters with the police and may have a history of suicidal threats. As SWAT officers poured into to surround the complex, officials shut down a stretch of Burbank from Balboa Boulevard to Louise Avenue and evacuated neighboring apartment buildings. Negotiators tried to reason with the suspect for several hours, eventually using tear gas to cover officers’ entry to the apartment. They took him into custody around 2:30 p.m. “He was pretty peaceful once we got inside,” said Capt. John Sherman of the LAPD’s West Valley Division. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

first_imgSOCCER: Former Hearts FC and Dundalk star Shaun Kelly says Limerick can’t lose their crucial clash with Galway United tonight. Limerick have enjoyed a sensational renaissance in the past few months winning SIX games on the bounce to breath life back into their campaign.They looked dead and buried and were odds-on for relegation. However, since July they’ve embarked on an incredible run which has given them a fighting chance.Kelly re-joined Limerick in July after falling out with Derry City manager Peter Hutton.The Donegal man has been in great form – but says results have gone against them over the last few weeks – and said they simply can’t afford to lose tonight.Kelly told Donegal Daily, “We’ve went on a great run and that has given us a good chance, but we’ve still got a massive job to do in order to beat the drop. “We can’t lose tonight, it’s as simple as that, it really is do-or-die time.“I believe we can win, and I think if we do win we’ll stay up.“But away to Galway is a massive test and in order for us to win – we’ll need to be at our very best from the get go.“We’re all relishing the challenge and we know the importance of this fixture and retaining our Premier Division status for next season.SHAUN KELLY – “IT’S DO OR DIE FOR US IF WE’RE TO AVOID RELEGATION” was last modified: October 9th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:newsSportlast_img read more

A agricultura na África do Sul

first_imgCobrindo 1,2 milhao de quilometros quadrados de terra, a África do Sul representa 1/8 dos EUA e tem sete regioes climaticas, desde o clima mediterranico ate ao subtropical e semi-desertico.Esta sua biodiversidade, aliada a sua longa linha costeira de 3.000 km, servida por sete portos de mar, favorece o cultivo de uma enorme diversidade de produtos marinhos e agricolas, desde os produtos da epoca, citrinos e frutos subtropicais ate aos cereais, la, floricultura, gado e caça.As actividades agricolas variam desde a produçao de safras e agricultura mista, nas chuvas de Inverno e no pico do Verao, passando por criaçao de gado bovino no regiao do bushveld e de ovinos nas regioes mais aridas. O milho e muito cultivado, seguido do trigo, aveia, cana de açucar e girassois.Cerca de 13% da terra na África do Sul pode ser usada para cultivo de safras, mas somente 22% desta percentagem e terra potencialmente aravel. O factor de longe mais limitativo e a disponibilidade de agua, ou a falta dela. A epoca das chuvas nao sucede uniformemente por todo o pais, dai que algumas regioes tem grandes periodos de seca. Praticamente 50% da agua e utilizada para a agricultura, com cerca de 1,3 milhoes de hectares a serem irrigados.Hoje em dia, a África do Sul nao so e auto-suficiente em praticamente todos os principais produtos agricolas, como e tambem um fornecedor importante de produtos alimentares. A economia continua a depender em muito da pequena agricultura e do desenvolvimento da África Austral. Desde 1994 que o governo tem vindo a esforçar-se por incrementar a chamada pequena agricultura.ExportaçoesA África do Sul esta entre os cinco maiores exportadores mundiais de abacate, toranja, tangerina, ameixa, pera, uva de mesa e derivados de avestruz.A agricultura contribui com uns 8% do total de exportaçoes do pais. Os maiores sectores de exportaçao sao o vinho, citrinos, açucar, uvas, milho, sumos de fruta, la, frutas de epoca, como maças, peras, pessegos e alperces.Outros produtos importantes de exportaçao sao o abacate, produtos lacteos, flores, alimentos preparados, curtumes, carne, bebidas nao alcoolicas, ananases, fruta em conserva, nozes, açucar e vinhos.Estao a despontar alguns mercados de nicho, como as bebidas a base de ervas e o marisco de luxo.Vantagens competitivasPara la da biodiversidade do pais, os recursos marinhos, as infra-estruturas de primeira qualidade e os custos competitivos, a agricultura da África do Sul e o sector da agro-industria tem vindo a beneficiar de um acesso ao mercado cada vez maior dos seus parceiros mais relevantes, ou seja, a EU e os Estados Unidos da America, sob a egide de alguns acordos comerciais.A sazonabilidade inversa da África do Sul face a Europa, o seu primeiro mercado de exportaçao para produtos horticolas e floricolas, e outra das enormes vantagens. A África do Sul e o produtor do hemisferio sul de produtos horticolas e floricultura que esta mais perto da Europa, com tempos de embarque notoriamente mais curtos do que os seus concorrentes.Este artigo foi actualizado em: Julho de 2008Reporter infoSA.
