first_img“There is serious trouble ahead because Nigeria have experience, they know how to counter-attack and they know how to score,” stressed the Argentine football legend who watched his country squandered the lead to share points with Iceland last Saturday.Maradona went on to blast Sampaoli for his poor tactics against Iceland.“His (Sampaoli) game-plan was a disgrace. Even though the Iceland players average 1.90m in height, we played all our corners into the air. We had no short game,” Maradona recalled.Last year, Argentina threw away a 2-0 lead to lose 4-2 to Nigeria in an international friendly in Russia. The perennial group stage customers are to clash in their last Group D game on June 26 here in Saint Petersburg.Argentina took the lead through Sergio Aguero in the 19th minute Saturday as a cigar-puffing Maradona looked on from the stands of the Spartak Stadium.But minnows Iceland, playing at their first ever finals, leveled four minutes later through Alfred Finnbogason.Messi, whose performances in World Cups are arguably the only blot on an other-worldly career, spurned a chance to take the lead when his 63rd-minute spot kick was saved by Hannes Halldorsson.But Maradona avoided criticising his heir apparent and instead pointed the finger at Sampaoli.“I don’t blame the players. I could blame the lack of work rate. But I can’t blame the players, much less Messi, who gave it all he had,” he said.“I missed five penalties on the spin and I was still Diego Armando Maradona. I don’t think that they dropped two points because Messi missed a penalty,” added Maradona, who led Argentina to the quarter-finals in South Africa in 2010 as coach.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Argentina Legend Diego Maradona has warned his country’s Coach, Jorge Sampaoli, not to return home from the World Cup in Russia if the Albeceleste loses to Nigeria and fails to qualify from Group D to the knock out stage.Maradona who played against Super Eagles at Nigeria’s debut at the Mundial in 1994 in USA told Argentine Television Telesur’s ‘De la mano del Diez’ show that the way his country played in the opening game of Group D against Iceland leaves much to be desired.“If he carries on like this, Sampaoli can’t come back to Argentina.last_img read more

first_imgAodh Ruadh GAA News:MeetingThe monthly club meeting takes place this Wednesday, 26th August in Aras Aoidh Ruaidh at 8.30pm. All committee members are asked to attend. FootballA barn-storming last 15 minutes in Newtowncunningham saw Aodh Ruadh convincingly put their second round championship tie to bed as they ran out 3-13 to 3-7 victors. Ballyshannon got off to a good start, an early Seamus Kane goal carrying them into a four point lead. Naomh Colmcille dominated the middle half hour though and lead 2-4 to 1-5 at the interval, maintaining that lead early in the second half. A brilliant David Dolan goal turned the tide and from there Aodh Ruadh outscored the hosts 1-5 to 0-1 down the stretch. That victory makes it two wins out of two in group 1 of the intermediate championship and puts Ballyshannon in the driving seat for a place in the knock stages. We have a full match report from the game up on aodhruadh.org with pictures to follow. Meanwhile Aodh Ruadh’s chances of progression in the reserve championship were dealt a fatal blow when they lost out to Naomh Colmcille in a nine goal game, 5-16 to 4-8 the final score. The reserves struggled to muster a team to travel to Newtowncunningham for their second championship match. Having lost the first match to Buncrana a win here was a must. The visitors, despite having a much weakened team, gave a great account of themselves in the first half keeping the hosts within sight thanks to goals from Anthony Coughlin and Jamie McDonald. However a couple of fortuitous goals saw the hosts go in at the break leading 3-7 to 2-5. The second half however was much less of a contest as the hosts made the most of the numerical advantage and their subs playing against the 14 weary travellers. They slowly extended their lead throughout the half as fatigue set in among the Ernesiders. Further goals from Niall Thomas and a beauty from Dermot Slevin kept some respectability on the final scoreline of 5-16 to 4-8. A very disappointing day for the lads who made the effort to make the trip. We will have pictures from the game up on aodhruadh.org later in the week.Aodh Ruadh are at home this Sunday, 30th August in the championship with Saint Naul’s the visitors to Father Tierney Park, throw-in at 3pm. That is preceded by the reserve championship clash with the same opposition at 1.30pm.Aodh Ruadh played a big role as Donegal won the Jim McGuigan Ulster under 17 competition on Saturday. They defeated Tyrone 3-10 to 0-9 in the semi-final before beating Monaghan 3-14 to 0-7 in the final. Nathan Boyle captained the side, following in the footsteps of another Aodh Ruadh Donegal captain at this competition, Niall Harley.  Shane McGrath played both games, showing well at full forward. Oisin Rooney come on in the final and made a good contribution. Mick McGrath also provided administrative assistance. This is the third year in a row Donegal has won the competition with Aodh Ruadh having substantial involvement in all three wins.Congratulations to Adam Clarke who won the 58th edition of the Bakery Cup on Wednesday. His side overcame the challenge of Shane Gillespie’s men in the final on a scoreline of 6-6 to 4-4. Adam’s team was Aaron Duffy, Odhran McGarrigle, Conall Bradshaw, Kyle McCafferty, David Doherty, Ryan McDonald, Daire Warren, Mark McGlynn, Philip Cassidy, Adam McGlone, Jack Hourihane and Shane Carty-Fenlon. The win caps a great year for Adam when he played a real leader’s role at centre back in the under 14s. The under 14s hosted Grange for a challenge in the park on Saturday afternoon. It was a relaxed affair with Aodh Ruadh winning well after having previously lost twice to the Sligo side this season.Under 13 training is now underway on Mondays and Wednesdays at 4.30pm.There will be under 12 training this Friday at 4.30pm.

HurlingRound five fixtures in the hurling championship will take place this Wednesday 26th August at 7pm with Aodh Ruadh hosting Saint Eunan’s in Father Tierney Park.There was no action on the field last week as the under 12s game with Saint Eunan’s was rearranged and Buncrana didn’t travel for the under 16 game. The under 16s finished fourth in the league and it looks like they’ll face a very difficult game away to Buncrana in the semi-final.The All-Ireland blitzes take place this Saturday and we hope to have players involved in the under 14, under 15 and under 16 squads. There is an all-county hurling blitz in Convoy on Sunday for the under 8s and under 10s full details later in week.Reunion for 1990 Community Games championsThere will be a reunion on Saturday 29th August in Bridgend Bar for the 1990 Donegal and All-Ireland winning Community Games team of Aodh Ruadh.
