Benzema injury exposes Real striking options

first_imgMadrid, Spain | AFP | Real Madrid’s lack of striking options is set to come under the spotlight with Karim Benzema expected to be sidelined for at least a month due to a hamstring injury.The Frenchman hobbled off midway through the first-half as Real were held to a shock 1-1 draw at home to Levante on Saturday.“Karim Benzema has been diagnosed with an injury in the semimembranosus muscle of the right leg,” Madrid said in a statement without specifying Benzema’s estimated recovery time.However, Madrid sports dailies Marca and AS reported Benzema will be sidelined for four to six weeks.Benzema’s injury could take 4-6 weeksGareth Bale was forced to play as an auxiliary centre-forward after replacing Benzema with Cristiano Ronaldo serving the fourth of a five-game domestic ban for pushing a referee in the Spanish Super Cup.Real failed to replace Alvaro Morata following his 80 million euro ($92.2m) move to Chelsea as they missed out on French teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe to Paris Saint-Germain.“This is the squad we have and there is nothing we can do but look for solutions within the squad,” added Zidane. “Cristiano and Benzema weren’t there and there is nothing we can do to change that.” Benzema looks set to miss Madrid’s opening two Champions League ties at home to APOEL Nicosia on Wednesday and away at Borussia Dortmund, as well as La Liga clashes with Real Sociedad, Real Betis, Alaves and Espanyol.Madrid will be able to recall Ronaldo in midweek, but could be without a senior recognised striker for next weekend’s tough trip to Sociedad with only 20-year-old Borja Mayoral providing cover.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Spurs star set for shock exit as Man United, Liverpool and West Ham circle

first_imgVictor Wanyama has emerged as a shock transfer target for a host of Premier League clubs after losing his place in the Tottenham Hotspur midfield.The Kenya international was a regular for Mauricio Pochettino’s men during his first season at the club after joining from Southampton in 2016. LATEST LIVING THE DREAM Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ targets IN DEMAND However, a succession of injuries have seen Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier form a solid base for Spurs in his place, with Moussa Sissoko even proving to be a reliable option from the bench.According to the betting market, Manchester United are leading the way at a price of 8/1 to sign the 27-year-old, followed by Liverpool at 10/1.Betfair Spokesperson Katie Baylis told The Sun: “With Wanyama tipped to leave Spurs in January, speculation is now turning to where he could move to.“There is apparent interest from the likes of United, City and Liverpool and we have United as the favourite at 8/1 ahead of Liverpool at 10/1 and City more of a long shot at 33/1.

ATA BOY! FINN HARPS SIGN AMERICAN STRIKER ATA OZBAY

first_imgFinn Harps FC have signed American striker Ata Ozbay as Ollie Horgan continues to source the firepower he hopes will fire Harps to the First Division title. Harps are currently one point clear of second-placed Wexford Youths but have played one game more.Harps lost star striker Ruairi Keating in June, and yesterday it was announced that Garbhan Friel had left the club. Horgan did get Nathan Boyle on loan from Derry City and he netted two goals in a superb 3-0 away win against Waterford United.Now Horgan has again used his extensive contacts to sign the talented American who played top-level colleges football in the USA.Parisian striker Wilfired Tagbo, who ensured Harps win against Cobh on Friday has been a successful signing since joining in January.Finn Harps fans will be hoping the new American signing can endear himself to the club’s supporters like Pat McCann did when he signed for Harps in 2013. The club has applied for international clearance for Ozbay and it is unlikely he’ll be clear to face UCD this weekend.It is not yet known whether or not Harps will face UCD this weekend as the students are in Europa League action Slovan Bratislava.ATA BOY!

Start Free Trial Already a member? Log incenter_img Many of us see the consequences of climate change as presented on the evening news: big catastrophes like Hurricanes Michael and Sandy that wipe out entire neighborhoods. The reality of climate change also comes in small, but more frequent calamities that affect families, even when the national media does not report it.Consider 1955. In that year, the United States suffered 18 national disaster declarations. It was an average year, since, between 1955 and 1965, about 18 natural disasters occurred annually, with a low of seven in 1958 and a high of 25 in 1965. Each decade after that, the number of national disasters climbed: From 1965-to-1975, there occurred 31 disaster declarations; between 1975 and 1985, there occurred 39; from 1985 to 1995, it was 43, and so on, until the present decade, when, projecting between 2010 and 2020, it looks like we will reach a high of about 110 nationally declared disasters on an average year. You can look up the statistics; FEMA keeps track.With a national disaster declared about twice weekly, it becomes evident that the new normal includes a devastating storm or flood, somewhere, “on an rainy Wednesday afternoon,” as a FEMA representative described the new normal during a recent presentation on Climate Adaptation.As the lead agency in responding to national disaster declarations, FEMA has a vested interest in reducing the damage done, and the associated cost of providing aid. The agency is moving aggressively to promote planning and construction that accepts the advent of frequent natural disasters and encourages communities to build and remodel with updated hazard conditions in mind.Building code recommendations derive from historical data, but in a changing environment, history may not repeat itself. FEMA now pushes communities to base codes on predictive climate models, rather than historical data, to more appropriately address what’s coming.On the global scale, builders have played an essential role in embracing green… last_img read more
