Legends match sets stage for FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017

With just one month to go before the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 kicks off, five FIFA Legends – Carlos Valderrama, Fernando Morientes, Marcel Desailly, Jorge Campos and Emmanuel Amuneke – took part in a special exhibition game at the Dr. DY Patil Stadium, and unveiled the Winner’s Trophy for the Navi Mumbai leg of the FIFA Trophy Experience.

It was an unforgettable day for Indian football as the FIFA Legends took on a team containing Arjuna Award winner Oinam Bembem Devi, Indian women’s national team captain Ngangom Bala Devi, two kids from Mission XI Million (the legacy programme for the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017), Minister of State for Heavy Industries and Public Enterprise Babul Supriyo and Bollywood film-maker Shoojit Sircar.

Football fans in Mumbai cheered for both teams at the match, which ended 5-4 in favour of the FIFA Legends. Fernando Morientes scored four goals, while Bala Devi was the standout performer for the Indian icons, scoring two goals and providing an assist.

Emmanuel Amuneke, winner of the FIFA U-17 World Cup with Nigeria as coach, said: “I think that when coaching U-17 players, the most important thing is to try to make sure they see you as someone who can add to their game. Try as much as you can to guide them and don’t forget that there are distractions going on in their minds. The most important thing is to bring them to a level where they can compete with teams all over the world.”

Fernando Morientes added: “Infrastructure and coaching can help create an ecosystem that can be conducive to the transition between youth and senior teams. That’s what Spain and France have been doing all these years. The infrastructure must start from school level, and continue right to the top.”

Marcel Desailly remarked: “This is a huge opportunity for Indian kids to develop the game and hopefully see their national team taking to the international stage at youth level.”

In only a month’s time, India will host its first-ever FIFA tournament, and the milestone occasion of the FIFA Legends match was made even more momentous with the launch of the competition’s Official Song, “Kar Ke Dikhla De Goal”, which roughly translates as “Show That You Can Score a Goal”.

Written by lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya and composed by Pritam, the song features a host of well-known Indian musicians, including Sunidhi Chauhan, Neeti Mohan, Babul Supriyo, Shaan, Papon and Mika along with a cameo rap performance by actor Abhishek Bachchan. The track showcases the vibrancy and uniqueness of India but also resonates with a global audience. The short video clip to the Official Song of the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 is now available on FIFA’s YouTube channel.

The Dr. DY Patil Stadium will host eight matches this October, including one semi-final. Fans can still secure their tickets online at www.fifa.com/india2017/ticketing.

UFC 215 LIVE FROM ROGERS PLACE IN EDMONTON, CANADA ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 9

UFC 215 LIVE FROM ROGERS PLACE IN EDMONTON, CANADA ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 9

 

PHOTOS ATTACHED AVAILABLE FOR USE – PLEASE CREDIT JEFF BOTTARI/ZUFFA LLC.

 

Edmonton, Canada – On Saturday, September 9, UFC® flyweight world champion and pound-for-pound great Demetrious Johnson will look to keep his belt a record 11th time and pass legend Anderson Silva in the record books for most successful title defenses.  Johnson, the only champion the division has ever known, squares off against surging prospect Ray Borg who is relishing the opportunity to play spoiler on this historical evening.  Adding to the excitement is a co-main matchup, which pits champion Amanda Nunes versus Valentina Shevchenko for supremacy in the women’s bantamweight class.  Originally scheduled to clash in July, anticipation has built to crescendo as fans finally get to see two of the most fearsome strikers go head to head.  Ahead of the highly anticipated UFC® 215: JOHNSON vs. BORG, these four fighters set to feature in the headlining bouts share their thoughts and predictions:

 

 

Demetrious Johnson:

I expect a war. Ray Borg is tough, he’s young and you always expect a war. I’ve always expected wars in any of my fights.”

On breaking the record…

“I don’t think about it a lot and I don’t let it weigh on me. As an athlete, you have to stay focused and you have to go out there and execute what you’ve been doing in the gym for eight or 10 weeks. Once I solidify that and attain it, ask me at the press conference.

It doesn’t make more nerves.  I’ve wrestled in front of people like that. I’ve also fought in front of sold out crowds before. But I’m absolutely grateful that the people in Canada have come out and shown their support and sold the place out.

I got my ESPY. It came that Wednesday when I got back home. I put Dave Lockett in charge and Dave got it for me. I’m happy about it. It showed up in a box, in the mail. It’s right next to my Black Panther mask.”

On Borg saying he wants to win more…

“I think the last 10 men have had the same mindset. See how far that got them?”

On Borg saying he’ll grant DJ a rematch if he wins…

“That’s very generous. Wilson Reis said the same thing.”

On what fans can expect watching him fight…

“Probably one of the greatest mixed martial artists to ever do it. I’m very fluid in my transitions, I can fight anywhere and I’ve beat the best.”

On saying DJ’s run isn’t as impressive as Anderson’s…

“How can you say Joseph Benavidez is not better than Nate Marquardt? Kyoji Horiguchi is over there kicking ass in Japan. I think Kyoji Horiguchi has a better skill set than Dan Henderson. Dan Henderson only has a right hand bomb and wrestling. Let’s go down the line. How can you say John Dodson doesn’t have a better skill set than Chael Sonnen? Really? Let’s not f**king kid ourselves guys. John Dodson is an amazing athlete. I could just go down the list. Like I said, that’s just the public perceiving certain things.”

 

Amanda Nunes

“I don’t know why people put MMA on another level or a different category. If a soccer player feel like his calf muscles (are hurt), he sits and waits until he’s 100 percent. Nobody talks shit about him because they know what he’s feeling. Why can’t MMA be like that? This is a sport as well. We have to use our whole body. We’re not only running or using just our hands or legs. I made the right decision. I’m the best on the planet right now and I’m a target for a lot of people. I’m ready to go through everything because I’m the champion.

I’m focused, I love training and I love stepping into the Octagon and doing my best. I think every time I step in there, eventually people are going to remember everything that I did. This is normal. It is what it is and you have to move forward. I always move forward, whatever happens in my career.

This fight is awesome.  I think the other opponents fall into Valentina’s game plan. This makes it difficult to for the other girls to beat Valentina. You have to make Valentina fight your game plan. You have to be smarter than her.  I am and she knows that I am. That’s why she says all those weird things. She knows I will beat her. I’m better than her everywhere and I will prove that Saturday.”

On struggling later in fights…

“People who have been watching me they think this is my weakness. I fought Valentina and I beat her before. Ronda (Rousey) was the same thing and people were wrong. I can’t say anything I have to show it.”

 

Ray Borg

“I think he knows it’s not going to be an easy fight for him. I’m going to be in his face for 25 minutes, if it goes that long. I’m not going to stop and I’m not going to give up. It’s going to be a night of hell. I think he knows I possess different strengths than a lot of his former opponents. I think he knows he’s in for a rough night.”

On Demetrious…

“I think what makes DJ unique as a fighter, people are going to say his cardio – which it is – but I think what people don’t give him credit for, something that’s hard to do in a fight, is his I.Q. He has the ability, in the middle of a fight, to change things to not lose. If he’s getting taken down with single legs he has the I.Q. to fix it on the spot. It’s something we’ve prepared for going into this fight.

I think I’m prepared for everything he brings to the table. He really isn’t going to show me anything or do anything to me that I haven’t seen before; that I haven’t prepared for or seen in sparring or in a fight. No matter what he changes in his outlook on the fight or no matter what he does in the fight, I feel like I’ll be prepared in those positions.”

 

Valentina Shevchenko

“Now she can find any excuse in the world.  Why was she feeling so bad? She cut too much weight in 24 hours. I don’t believe in this reason of sinuses or anything else. It’s very unbelievable.

I have my point of view and I have my opinion. I will not change my mind because she has demonstrated a few times how easy she changes her mind. She’s acting like she’s dependent on the fans and what they want to hear.

Her cardio doesn’t matter because I’m not thinking about this fight in that context.  No, I will win this fight because of everything. I was preparing for this fight very hard. I had very great training in my preparation for this fight. I will do all my best to fight with all my heart and think about nothing more. She can be confident for now, but once the door closes in the Octagon it will be totally different.

Just one prediction: I will do everything to win this fight.”

Here is what the press conference participants had to say Wednesday:
ERISLANDY LARA
“I like to do my talking in the ring. On October 14 that’s exactly what I’m going to do. It’s an honor to be headlining on SHOWTIME and we’re looking forward to a great fight.
“I’m excited to be part of this huge card. This is a great event. These are the best guys in the division. It’s a pleasure to be the main event and I look forward to putting on a show.
“Gausha is a good fighter. He’s an Olympian and a guy who wants to win and become world champion. I know what that feels likes, but I also know what it takes. We’ll see how it plays out on October 14.
“I’m excited for this fight. I’ve beat champions, former champions and now I’ll add an Olympian. After I take care of business I look forward to unifying the division.
“My prayers and my thoughts are with everyone down in Houston. I have family and friends who were affected. It’s a sad situation, but Houston has to be strong. That’s why I’m going to have “Houston Strong” on my trunks because we all need to stick together and unite. That’s the way we’ll make it through.”
TERRELL GAUSHA
“I was extremely excited to get the call for this fight. I’ve been working for this my whole career and it’s a great opportunity. Lara is considered to be the best in the division and I want to fight the best. Now is my time.
“I’ll have to make adjustments in there. Obviously with Lara you have to cut the ring off. We have a game plan that I’m going to go in there and execute on October 14.
“I’m fighting a tough competitor. He’s crafty. We all know he has skills. But I’ve prepared for this and I’m going to do what I have to do. I like to do my talking in the ring and I’ll leave it all on the line on fight night.
“I’m a more mature fighter now. I’m a true professional. I’ve been through some things in my career that have helped me leading up to this fight. I’m well-seasoned and ready for the test.
“I’m training with my coach Manny Robles in Norwalk, California and it’s been going really well. We’re adding a few things for this fight but mostly just putting in the same hard work that we always do.
“I’m blessed to be in this position. I feel like all my hard work is paying off now that I’m on a big card like this. I worked hard and I deserve this chance.”
JERMELL CHARLO
“I’m honored to be in Brooklyn. This is another exciting fight card like the last card I was on here. I did what I had to do in April. I let the opponent run his mouth and then I took care of him. I’m going to let that happen again.
“I have to take advantage of this opportunity. I know that I have a lot of advantages but I just need to go seize the moment. He’s a tough, strong fighter who’s going to be ready to take my title.
“It’s interesting to see a guy as young as he is come for a world title. I’ve been here a long time in the pro game. It’s a big stage for both of us. I’ve fought a lot of tough guys up to this point. This is what I’ve been preparing for.
“I want to fight Jarrett Hurd after this. I’d also like to get an opportunity to unify against Miguel Cotto. I want to show the old guard that the Charlo twins are as good as anyone.
“I got my hands full with Ericskon Lubin and I know he comes to fight. He’s a dog, but I’m an animal as well. I’m going to step up and do what I’ve done each time before.
“I’m doing this for Houston. Houston is going through a lot. My friends and family are all affected. It really doesn’t seem real to me. I’m ready to help however I can.”
ERICKSON LUBIN
“This is the fight I asked for. I said I wanted to go the WBC route and when it was officially announced I was really excited. I’ve been training for this since my last fight. I’m even more motivated now to go get the belt.
“I’ve been sparring with bigger guys. Guys who throw one-two combos like Jermell. I’m getting prepared mentally and physically for this fight.
“Jermell has some power. He moves pretty well, but I’ll be prepared for everything. Whether he pressures or boxes me I’ll be prepared.
“I laugh at people who say this is too soon for me. Mike Tyson was 19 when he dared to be great. This is the perfect time for me to show that I’m not a regular 21-year-old.
“This is a stacked card we have here and I’m ready to showcase my talent. I want to prove I’m the best in this division. I think we’re bringing back the era of all fighters going out there and giving it their all each time they step into the ring. I always steal the show and I’m planning to do that October 14.”
JARRETT HURD
“It means everything to be defending my belt on a card like this. I fought here at Barclays Center on the Keith Thurman vs. Shawn Porter undercard so to be back here against a veteran in Austin Trout is great. I can’t wait to put on a show.
“We’re going to have two buses of fans coming up here. The ‘Swift’ fans will be in the house. It’s going to be a great atmosphere on fight night.
“In my last bout, Tony Harrison won some early rounds by boxing me, so we’ve known that my next opponent is going to try to outbox me. We expect him to move around and use the ring against me.
“This has been a long training camp. We’ve had this bout set for a long time. We’re more than prepared.
“We’ve been training to catch a ‘Trout.’ We’ll put the bait out there and let him come in. If he doesn’t take the bait, we’ll step right in the water and get him out of there.
“I’m going to keep the pressure on him. I’m planning on attacking the body and making sure I cut off the ring. He’s going to be on the move so I have to be prepared.
“My fans can expect a stoppage on October 14. He’s got three losses against great opponents but none have been able to stop him. I’m going to separate myself by being the first to do it.”
AUSTIN TROUT
“This is going to put me back to where I belong. Right back on top. This is for my legacy so this is of the utmost importance.
“It’s an honor to be on a card like this. I’m blessed to be a part of this great lineup of fighters. This place is the new hotspot of boxing and I can’t wait to perform.
“Hurd is tall, he’s a big guy who I think is going to come forward. We’re preparing for the best possible Hurd that there could be.
“I’m ready to take my career to a whole new level. I’ve been in big fights, but none like this. There is so much riding on this fight. He wants to make a name for himself off of my name.
“He didn’t have to take this fight and I’m happy he did. But he messed up. I’m leaving the ring with his belt and his ‘0.’ I want to stake my claim as the best in the division.
“I’m coming home as a world champion. I’ll be a two-time world champion who’s going to unify this division. I’m going to have my hand raised at the end of the night.”
LOU DIBELLA, President of DiBella Entertainment
“This is going to be a sensational show. If you’re a boxing fan this is going to be an amazing show. It’s going to bring some clarity to the division with six talented guys matching off. It’s a boxing fan’s fight and it’s priced that way.
“What boxing needs is the best matchups. Boxing needs shows like this. These are the kind of shows that SHOWTIME has been showing for the last few years. There is no question that they’re the number one network in boxing.
“This card is about finding out who will be the last man standing in the 154-pound division. It starts on October 14 and it’ll all go down on SHOWTIME.”
STEPHEN ESPINOZA, Executive VP & General Manager, SHOWTIME Sports
“Last week we had the world’s attention for an unprecedented event in Mayweather vs. McGregor. What this sport needs to do to continue to expand is to follow that up with high quality boxing matchups. That’s why this card is so important. It was critical that we had a top to bottom high quality card to capture those people who started paying attention to boxing on Aug. 26.
“Over the last couple of years, SHOWTIME along with Barclays Center and DiBella Entertainment have brought fans the biggest and best fights in boxing. This might be the highest quality card from top to bottom since we started working with Barclays Center.
“This tripleheader will be the 18th, 19th and 20th world title fights this year on SHOWTIME. More than anyone else. More important and meaningful fights than anyone else. This is a talent-rich division we’ve been showcasing for years.
“I’ve never had any doubts about boxing’s future. Boxing is very healthy. All you have to do is look at these six fighters in their prime, taking on top competition. I know that this sport is in very good health.”
BRETT YORMARK, CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment
“It has been an incredible year for BROOKLYN BOXING. Probably the best since we opened Barclays Center. On October, 28, we will celebrate our fifth anniversary. We’re very committed to boxing, not only showcasing the best and brightest talent, but to use it as a platform for those who aspire to get in this ring. We’re committed to their futures.
“There are a lot of championships on the line which should make it a great night. All of these fights promise to bring action to our great fans. We look forward to seeing everyone on the 14th.”

“EN CASA TENEMOS QUE OBTENER LA MAYOR CANTIDAD DE PUNTOS”: DE BUEN

“EN CASA TENEMOS QUE OBTENER LA MAYOR CANTIDAD DE PUNTOS”: DE BUEN

En el inicio de la preparación de cara a la fecha 8 de la Liga MX, en la cual los Guerreros enfrentarán a Toluca este domingo en el Estadio Corona, el futbolista Diego de Buen mencionó que el equipo se mantiene con el objetivo de alcanzar los puestos de Liguilla: “Una Fecha FIFA que aprovechamos para no perder minutos y seguir enfocados en lo que buscamos, en casa tenemos que obtener la mayor cantidad de puntos posible, para seguir en busca del objetivo que queremos que es la Liguilla”.

 

El mediocampista albiverde aseguró que frente a los Diablos Rojos, será una gran oportunidad para celebrar el 34 Aniversario buscando el triunfo: “Podría ser un festejo redondo, regalarle una victoria a la gente, al Club que cumple 34 años y seguir ahí, no alejarnos del grupo de equipos que están buscando la zona de calificación, sería importante para ganar en confianza, que es lo que todos queremos”.

 

Sobre la importancia del regreso a los entrenamientos de Carlos Izquierdoz, indicó: “Al parecer ya esta semana vamos a entrenar todos, desde pretemporada no lo hacíamos como equipo completo, ojalá que se dé, que los de Selección regresen bien para que el plantel esté completo, seguir trabajando para ponérsela difícil al Cuerpo Técnico y que jueguen los que mejor estén”.

 

El jugador de 26 años habló sobre el rival en turno: “Es un equipo que tiene jugadores de mucha experiencia, les gusta manejar la pelota, a lo mejor no son muy intensos, nuestra dinámica les puede perjudicar, les puede dañar, se les puede complicar el partido por ese lado”.

 

Finalmente, de Buen afirmó sentirse en su mejor momento bajo la casaca santista: “Sí, por la continuidad de partidos que he tenido, eso te lo da la confianza que puedes ir adquiriendo con los encuentros constantes, afortunadamente me ha tocado ayudar al equipo con goles, eso también es importante, pero en conjunto tenemos que seguir por la misma línea para ir en ascenso, seguir adelante”.

Con plantel completo

Jaime Lozano se mostró contento por el rendimiento que han mostrado los canteranos con primer equipo y afirmó que el plantel está completo para enfrentar a León.

“No hay lesionados, Erbín Trejo se incorporó hace diez días, habrá que ver si está para arrancar. Esperamos tener regularidad, queremos que a los rivales les cueste trabajo sacar puntos. Queremos ser plaza complicada para los visitantes”, declaró en conferencia de prensa al término del entrenamiento en el CEGAR.

Clásico contra León“Sabemos que es un Clásico, es importante, es un momento medular del torneo. No es momento malo. Con una victoria te metes en posiciones para clasificar, falta más de la mitad del torneo. Necesitamos el apoyo de toda la afición para sacar estos partidos adelante. Esperamos tener regularidad, queremos que a los rivales les cueste trabajo sacar puntos. Queremos ser una plaza complicada para los visitantes”.

Aspectos por mejorar“Muchas cosas por mejorar, sobre todo por la idea de juego. Defensivamente hemos sido fuertes. La presión es como cada quien la quiera ver. Es la oportunidad de trascender, a eso vine a Gallos. He podido estar en tres campeonatos en esta institución. Nos ha faltado fortalecernos en casa”.

Rival“No te puedes equivocar, hay técnico nuevo, tenemos referencias individuales”.

Debut de los canteranos“Me da orgullo y emoción. Quería jugadores a mediano plazo nacidos en Gallos, hay seleccionados en distintas categorías. No los tengo por agradecimiento, sino porque pueden competir por un puesto”.
