He ended up with a sticking plaster on his eyebrow which gave his superb performance even more epic. Either with Magallán or with Ely, it complements perfectly.Magellan. It seemed that Rodrigo Ely could return after his sanction for five yellows but Garitano rewarded the Argentine for his work in Seville. Very good in defensive work, especially head. Precisely, thanks to a stub, he almost scored with a shot almost at ground level.Duarte. Very good but suffering in the first bars with Arbilla boarding schools. He didn’t get much help from the bandmates in defense and had to multiply. Author of a great shot in the final stretch of the game, a left-footed shot that was almost high and that would have been 3-0 at that time.Manu García.

He started from half a point behind Joselu and, in the second half when he recovered 4-4-2, he worked as a second half center with Manu. It has quality and it is difficult to lose the ball. It also adds to the attack actions and, sooner or later, will get some goal.Burke. Very active in the first part when his teammates were looking for him in the race for the band. It has an enviable speed tip. 2-0 author with a good shot in the second suit. He received a candid ball and hit it accurately. First both his and Alavés.Joselu. He did not finish much on goal but was instrumental in the victory of Alavés. Lucas’s goal comes after his pass and in Burke’s he passes the ball. It always helps in defense and, when the team clears head corners in defense, it is almost always the centrals, Manu or him who do it.Lucas Pérez. The star of the night. It is ringing to reinforce Barcelona but will not leave if the Catalans do not disburse 25 million. He entered the field to rest and, in less than a minute, got 1-0. Then he participated in the second and was a continuous nuisance for the armored defense.Edgar Mendez. Ovacionado on his return to Mendizorroza. It was offered at all times and had two overflow actions with impressive speed. His arrival and, especially that of Camarasa, offers the team some very interesting variants that Garitano surely takes advantage of.Martin. Last minutes to reinforce the defense with the score at 2-1. He embedded himself on the side and allowed Ximo Navarro to become the third center of a five-defense.

Very soon we will get out of this and we will all do it together. Visca Barça and Visca Catalunya “.last_img read more

Follow the Trace: Under-19s were perfectly prepared

first_imgNot very often in recent times have we had credible cause to heap praises on the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB). The success of the Under-19 team presents us with one such precious moment. Conversely, the splintered criticisms of the board, pointing to the inadequacy of preparation of the triumphant team, seems spurious, irrational and lacking credibility. Since the objective of preparing any sporting team for competition is for that team to be victorious, in the advent that the team is victorious, there can be no guarantees that having prepared the team differently the team would still have been victorious. It is by that general principle that these particular criticisms of the WICB should be rubbished. If the WICB and the coaching staff had it to do all over again with the same set of players, it would be foolhardy for them to do anything significantly different. The WICB president, Mr Dave Cameron, speaking on the arrival of the three Jamaican players in the squad, quite rightly took credit for the part the board played in the selection and preparation of the team. Mr Cameron pointed to the fact that at least five members of the team are already playing professionally and that the core of the team was selected as far back as 2014 and actually competed in the regional 50-over competition in the very same year. REGULAR TRAINING CAMPS Subsequent to that, there were regular training camps leading into the tournament, with the preparation culminating in a three-match warm-up series against the host nation of the tournament, Bangladesh. The genesis of these criticisms, I suspect, emanated from the relatively sparse number of warm-up games the team played leading into the World Cup compared top teams such as India, who played consistently together for two years and were unbeaten coming into the tournament. Bangladesh, we were told, played closer to a dozen warm-up games and were red hot early in the tournament, as were the Indians. The West Indies emphatically destroyed the myth of perfection that relates to the preparation of both India and Bangladesh by beating both when it mattered most. It is, therefore, quite plausible that the West Indies’ preparations were better than that of both Bangladesh and India. The West Indies team was the sharpest team mentally in the tournament, as evidenced by those two huge tournament changing moments, starting with that crucial run out against Zimbabwe, followed by the big stumping of the Indian star batsman in the final. SHARP, TALENTED Not only were they sharp mentally, they are talented, they were motivated and they appeared to get fitter and sharper as the tournament progressed, while the more fancied teams, with their so-called superior preparation, faded and fizzed at the business end of the tournament. The silly assumption being made is that because India and Bangladesh played 20 or 30 warm-up games between them they were better prepared. That is obviously not necessarily so. There is always the risk of overworking and burning out the players, plus there are cultural differences that must be considered. West Indians are naturally stronger and more natural athletes and perhaps need less physical drilling and more psychological work. The success of this West Indies team might very well serve to redefine the way teams at this level are prepared for competition, with less physical and game sessions and more mental and psychological preparedness. The victorious players, coaching staff, as well as the WICB leadership should all be congratulated for executing plans and preparations that in the end were proven to be perfect by the fact that the West Indies Under-19 team lifted the ultimate prize.last_img read more
