Victory in both games propelled the three-time African champions to the top of Group L with six points and they were scheduled to take on Sierra Leone in another qualifier in March before it was suspended due to Covid-19. read also:Ighalo claimed Rashford has fully recovered from injury setback Ighalo made his international debut for the Super Eagles against Uganda in a friendly in 2015 and had 35 caps for the West Africans, scoring three goals before he surprisingly quit the national team. The forward’s return to the Super Eagles will boost Nigeria’s aim to win the Africa Cup of Nations in 2021 and qualify for the World Cup in Qatar in 2022. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… The forward played a key role as the West Africans qualified for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations after missing the previous two editions in 2015 and 2017. The former Watford striker emerged as the highest goalscorer in the qualifiers before firing the Super Eagles to a third-place finish in the tournament in Egypt, scooping the top scorer award in the process. Ighalo, however, announced his retirement from international duty after his five-star performance in the competition, along with the team captain and former Chelsea star John Obi Mikel. In doing so, the forward cited the difficulty of having to travel the distance between China to Nigeria for national duty. Ighalo moved to England in January, joining the Red Devils on loan from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua and has been the toast of the fans with his blistering performances, scoring four goals and providing one assist in only eight games before the suspension of the division due to the outbreak of coronavirus. The 30-year-old, who recently extended his loan deal with the Old Trafford outfit until January 2021, has not ruled out a return to the Super Eagles.last_img read more

However, he has no intention of resting on his laurels as he contemplates several more seasons at the coalface. Keane said: “I’m certainly enjoying it because you have to enjoy it. I love doing it, I love training every day.” Robbie Keane will win a record 126th Ireland cap on Friday night confident he still has another five or six years in his legs.center_img He went on: “When you get older, your desire and your hunger are even more so because even though I don’t I am feel coming to end – because I am not, I still have another at least have five, six years left in me – you know you are not that young lad anymore where you are not too worried about future because you feel like you can go on forever. “I am certainly enjoying my football, there’s not question about that, but I always have. I am very privileged, there’s no question about that. I get paid to do something that I absolutely love doing. It’s not that bad, is it? “People forget I am 32 years of age, is not like I’m 34, 36 or whatever. People are talking about (keeper David) Forde being in the squad and he’s a newcomer, but he’s 33 years of age. I am a year older than Wes Hoolahan and he’s a newcomer; John O’Shea is the same age as me. “People talk about it because I have been around for so long. For me, I have certainly got no intentions at all (of retiring) at this moment in time. As long as I have the hunger and desire, there’s no reason for me not to. I will retire when I stop scoring goals.” For all Friday night will be a proud occasion for Keane and his family – his four-year-old son Robert will be mascot – he is focussing only on the quest for three precious points. He said: “It’s something that maybe in 10 years’ time, I will look back on and be very, very proud of. But when you are still part of the squad and you are still training and you are still looking forward to the game, it’s something you don’t really think about too much because you are focussing so much on the game. “It’s a big occasion for myself, but I think more so for the family. They are the ones who are speaking about it all the time and very, very excited about it whereas for me, the most important thing is playing the game and getting a result for the team.” last_img read more

He was delighted to share the evening with Gerrard and heralded the joint award as a great way to end his time in England. “I’m pleased – it is a great honour,” the former Chelsea man said. “I have been fortunate enough to have a long time playing in the Premier League – along with Steven it is a great honour to be alongside a player who himself has done so much for the game. For the two of us to get it, it is a nice send-off and a nice ending for me. “I have got a huge amount of respect for Steven – we had a few ding-dongs up and down the years, we seemed to play each other five or six times a season when the Champions League was involved. “He deserved the accolades he gets for his career and being a statesmen of Liverpool – he will be remembered for what he has done in the game. I’m proud to stand alongside him, he is a good friend and we had fun playing together for England.” Former England midfielders Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard were back in tandem as they shared the PFA Merit award on Sunday. Press Association Questions were often asked of their suitability as partners in central midfield, with both being attack-minded players, but each man’s individual ability was never in doubt. Liverpool skipper Gerrard was pleased to join his former international colleague in accepting the award. “Of course, we played together for England for a long time and I’m a huge admirer of Frank and his game and the success he has had at Chelsea,” Gerrard said. “He is an unbelievable player, a world-class player and I couldn’t ask for anyone better to share it with. “I’m really pleased. Every time you get an individual award and an award for the job you do, you’re really happy. I’m a young boy from a council estate who has worked every so hard to get to where I am today. “I have been lucky, I have had a fantastic career it has been full of highs and lows but some of the highs I have achieved have blown me away and I achieved a lot of my dreams playing for Liverpool and England.” Gerrard will call time on a 17-year Liverpool career when he completes a move to Los Angeles Galaxy at the end of the season and admits he will miss many aspects of playing at Anfield. “It has been a privilege to represent Liverpool for so long and to share some of the highlights of my career,” he added. The veteran pair will leave the Premier League for Major League Soccer in the summer, having left an indelible mark on English football. Both Gerrard and Lampard were mainstays of England’s much-heralded ‘golden generation’ and collected 220 caps between them. last_img read more

first_imgThe Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism collaborated with two private health foundations to create a fund supporting journalists reporting on subjects related to children’s health.Annenberg, the California Endowment and the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health created the fund, which offers a $2,000 to $5,000 grant to professional print, online or broadcast journalists.The projects designed by applicants should shed light on critical health or policy issues that affect children’s health in California, said Michelle Levander, program director of the California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowship.“For example, how kids make their way through the health care system, and [how] kids before wouldn’t have lived as long as they’re living now with the [same] level of severity of an ailment are rich areas for reporting,” Levander said.Levander said stories about children’s health have changed greatly as health care has changed, specifically the increased impact of chronic diseases on the lives of children.“What you see now is that the children who are severely ill have chronic diseases, but not necessarily fatal diseases,” Levander said. “They are very costly for the health care system and they are complex to manage.”Levander said one example is a decrease in schools providing full-time nurses for students.“One example is that every school used to have its own nurse, [and] that’s one arena that has been cut back greatly,” she said. “You also have kids who might have something like Type 1 diabetes where they need insulin, and so now who is going to administer the insulin? [This debate] made it really tough for the parents and the kids.”The California Endowment Journalism Fellowship has other programs that offer reporting stipends as well. This, however, is the newest award and is distinct for its focus on children’s health Levander said.“This is all offered under the offices of the California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowship and we are a professional education program at the Annenberg school, and we’re geared toward professional reporters and editors and we offer short training programs with mentoring over many months on story projects all focused around health,” Levander said.Levander said if students are accepted, they will participate in a fellowship program.“It’s a new fund that will fund reporting projects around children’s health issues,” Levander said. “[Professional journalists] will be competing to secure both a place in a weeklong national fellowship program and, based on the strength of their reporting proposal, to receive a reporting stipend for the project that they would embark upon.”last_img read more
