Raised in Madrid, Cheryshev becomes Russia’s World Cup star

first_imgNot bad for a man who, before the tournament, had played only 33 minutes under Russia’s current coach and hadn’t started an international game since 2015.“Thank God that I could score three goals in two games, but my aim is just to help the team,” said Cheryshev, who plays as a winger for Villarreal said. “If other players score, I’ll be happy for them, too.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownCheryshev is one of only two players in Russia’s squad who play for foreign clubs — the other is third-choice goalkeeper Vladimir Gabulov — and for a long time, it seemed like national-team coaches overlooked him. He grew up outside the Russian system at Real Madrid, where his father was a youth coach.A string of injuries and a perception that, as a stylish winger, he didn’t fit Russia’s typically rugged, defensive style combined to keep him out of the national team under successive coaches. LATEST STORIES When he finally made Russia’s World Cup squad, he wasn’t expected to start the first game, and didn’t.What changed was midfielder Alan Dzagoev’s hamstring injury 24 minutes into the opening game against Saudi Arabia on Thursday, with the score at 1-0. Cheryshev came on and 19 minutes later, he scored, dummying past two Saudi defenders. His second was an elegant curling shot in stoppage time.“I could never have dreamed of anything like this,” he said after Thursday’s game.On Tuesday, he finished off a smart team move through the Egyptian defense — exactly the kind of soccer Russia didn’t play even two weeks ago, when it drew 1-1 with a weakened Turkey team for its seventh winless friendly in a row.Russia’s rise has come with a new readiness from coach Stanislav Cherchesov to abandon his old tactical certainties and player preferences. Gone is the five-man back line he clung to for two years, replaced by a four-man system with defensive midfielder Yuri Gazinsky protecting the center backs.ADVERTISEMENT Taal victims get help from Kalayaan town In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ MOST READ The first-choice striker against Egypt was Artyom Dzyuba, who pre-tournament had played only once for Russia since 2016 and spent much of the season frozen out at Zenit St. Petersburg after a reported dispute with management.An old-fashioned striker who can win headers and hold up the ball, Dzyuba doesn’t have Cheryshev’s finesse but they have combined well together. Now with two World Cup goals, he echoed Russia’s newfound confidence.“We’ve done something historic but the tournament isn’t over,” he said. “Now we want more.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina View comments Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Christopher Tolkien, son of Lord of the Rings author, dies aged 95 Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Rackspace Cloud: An App Store that Pays

first_img[Note: Author has asked management our position on this for sites like RWW] Apple offers an afflilate program for the iTunes and the App Store. Many other online retailers offer similar features today on goods bought on the Internet, including Amazon with Amazon Associates.When first released, there were some questions on the process and payouts that have been updated in this new release, including a cookie-tracking mechanic and easier ways to reporting on activity. It sounds like Rackspace isn’t giving up and instead is innovating further in making infrastructure a click-away from the web. Will Amazon, Others Respond?RackSpace is growing it’s partner network and incentives, and is offering a sales model that rewards applications resellers, developers, and web sites. Amazon has an amazing affiliate outreach with it’s core store, we wonder if they will soon will offer more programs to attract software to bundle in infrastructure. Will more and more software come with “infrastructure inside”? Tags:#Announcements#cloud#Cloud Providers 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market mike kirkwood Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Do you like getting paid?Today, RackSpace Cloud announced a new cloud partner program designed to bring new business to reward partners for bringing hosting to the cloud offerings with the company. Now with the Rackspace program program, resellers can receive direct rewards in the form of percentage points on the back-end and join in the financial benefits of cloud hosting.Where Did This Idea Come From?We got a chance to speak with the Rackspace team. They emphasized customer feedback and testing with beta customers as key drivers for this program. From what we can see, the developers said “pay me” and “make it simple”. And that is what Rackspace aims to offer.“As a leader in cloud computing and a company that is committed to maintaining tight bonds with our partner community, we have aimed to create one of the most compelling partner programs in our industry,” said Emil Sayegh, general manager, The Rackspace Cloud. How Does it Work for Resellers?Rackspace Cloud customers who want to buy our hosting services directly and re-sell them to their own customer base. A reseller may divide our hosting services into smaller bundles so they are able to generate a profit from their customer fees, or build an application and attach it to the Rackspace infrastructure.In a way, this model is like a reverse app-store, where instead of paying 30% like app developers pay Apple to be on iPhone, app developers get paid for bringing business to the platform.If this program takes off, it could be a signal of a major sea-change where applications developers – rather than system integrators – are the one’s being rewarded for bringing infrastructure together.And now the company has extended it’s offerings to offer a Windows product it is broadening it’s appeal even further. The new Windows beta allows Cloud Server users new and existing features including control panel and API access for create, delete, reboot, and rename functions. Showing that the cloud is encapsulating the server into common functions and administration is one move towards consolidated infrastructure.From the press release. “The Rackspace Cloud Reseller Program offers discounts of up to 12 percent for resellers selling large volumes of cloud hosting across Rackspace Cloud’s services.”This also might be a good approach to monetize great open source solutions. The software is free, but when installing it you run it on a slice of the cloud and get paid as part of the whole bundle from the infrastructure provider.How Does it Work for Affiliates?“The Rackspace Cloud Affiliate Program is designed for companies that have offerings or content that attracts users interested in a cloud hosting solution. It is offered as a text or image link from a site, blog, or tweet. Members can earn from 5 to 7 percent (depending on the total number of referrals) of a referred hosting customer’s payments for a period of up to three years.”If you see a button like this one on the web, be assured that the company presenting it participates in the revenue stream if they sign up for RackSpace.

In fact Vijay last played limited overs cricket in Zimbabwe last year under Rahanes leadership. Rahul is also set to get a look in after an impressive IPL. Among the pacers, Jasprit Bumrah, who is a regular in T20 Internationals may like to play the three ODIs adding to his kitty of a solitary 50-over match at the international level.

ISL: FC Pune City pip Delhi Dynamos in seven-goal thriller

first_imgFC Pune City prevailed 4-3 over league leaders Delhi Dynamos to boost their chances of reaching the semi-finals of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) here on Friday.FC Pune City were down by a Kean Lewis (44th minute) goal in the first session but turned the match around in the second session with goals from Anibal Rodriguez (55th and 63rd), Mohammed Sissoko (62nd) and Lenny Rodrigues (90th).Delhi Dynamos remained in contention with an own goal from Eduardo Ferreira (79th) and a goal from Malsawmzuala (90th) till the very end at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex Stadium. (Also read: ISL: Late Iain Hume goal secures Atletico de Kolkata 1-1 draw against NorthEast United)The victory took Pune City to the fourth spot with 15 points from 11 matches, just two less than Delhi Dynamos who could have sealed their place in the play-offs with three points here.Chennaiyin FC and Atletico de Kolkata, both out of the top four now, can move on top with victories on Saturday, while NorthEast United FC (11 points) and FC Goa (11 points) are still in the competition with three matches left to be played.In an exciting contest, Delhi goalkeeper Soren Porei was the hero for his team in the first 45 minutes after stopping a penalty from Mohammed Sissoko and blocking Momar Ndoye twice in a one-on-one situation.Pune City had better control and should have taken the lead when Anibal was brought down inside the danger zone and the referee awarded a penalty. But marquee player Sissoko ended up with a poor penalty which Porei saved by guessing correctly and diving to his left.advertisementThe miss proved costly for Pune as they conceded a goal close to half time. Marcelinho’s back-heel from just outside the box released Emerson Gomes de Moura (Memo) whose ball inside the box saw Kean Lewis find space and time to slot it inside the net in the 44th minute.The goal was the 400th in the ISL and gave Delhi confidence that they can qualify for the semi-finals with three matches in hand but Pune struck in the 55th minute. A free kick from Jonatan Lucca found Anibal who rose high over two defenders and headed it into the far post.Seven minutes later, Pune City were ahead when Sissoko made amends for his poor penalty and slotted home from inside the box from another free kick.Pune appeared to wrap up the game only a minute later as Anibal capitalised on a blunder from Delhi Dynamos. Goalkeeper Porei threw the ball away to Ruben Gonzalez who could not control it. Anibal picked it up and beat the goalkeeper at the near post with a powerful strike.Florent Malouda had a hand in the second goal for Delhi as his shot across the goal hit defender Eduardo and sailed into the goal in the 79th minute. Any chance of a comeback was snuffed out by Pune midfielder Lenny Rodrigues when he finished a pass from Lucca in the last minute of play.Malsawmzuala did manage to pull another goal back for Delhi in added time but there was no more time for the equaliser as the visitors lost 3-4.last_img read more

David Warner comparing Ashes to war is ‘extreme’: Joe Root

first_imgEngland captain Joe Root on Friday criticised his Australian adversary David Warner saying it was “extreme” of him to compare the scheduled Ashes series to “war”.Earlier, Australian vice-captain Warner, on being asked about the importance of upcoming Ashes series, said, “The history, the pride that is at stake. As soon as you step on that line it is war.”Commenting on his remarks, Root was quoted by Sports24 as saying, “It’s a competitive sport, everyone goes out there desperate to do well, desperate to win, I would never refer to it as war, I think that’s a bit extreme.”The England captain added, “You know what you get with David. What you see is what you get. He’s passionate, he wants to do well for his country and it’s going to be a very entertaining series.”The Root-Warner controversy is not new in cricket. In 2013, Warner punched Root in a bar during Australia’s England tour. As a result, the Australian was banned for part of their tour.The Ashes is a Test cricket series played between England and Australia.An Ashes series is traditionally of five Tests, hosted in turn by England and Australia at least once every four years.As of August 2015, England holds the Ashes, having won three of the five Tests in the 2015 Ashes series.Australia and England have won 32 series each and five series have been drawn.last_img read more
