Estonia the Chances…Greece the 3 Points!

first_imgGreece continued their perfect record in World cup Qualifying! The Galanolefki came away with a difficult 0-2 victory with goals from Torosidis (65 seconds into play) and a clever free-kick from Kostas Stafylidis in the 61st minute. Estonia was the side that controlled the possession and created most of the chances in the game, but Greece proved more effective in converting their opportunities into goals. Greece’s next match will be a “derby” when they host Bosnia in November.Greece began with a 4-2-3-1 formation with Karnezis (GK), Torosidis (RB), Manolas (CB), Papastathopoulos (CB), Stafylidis (LB), Maniatis (CDM), K. Papadopoulos (CDM), Bakasetas (RM), Mantalos (CAM), Karelis (LM), and Mitroglou (CF).Our National Team could not have asked for a better start. Sixty five seconds into play, Mantalos’ corner was turned in by a well-placed header from Torosidis to give Greece the early 0-1 lead in Estonia. Although the goal took the pressure off the Galanolefki, two injuries within the first 18 minutes (Papastathopoulos and Torosidis) seemed to rattle Greece for the rest of the half. Papastathopoulos was taken off for Tachtsidis (moved K. Papadopoulos to centerback) and the goal scorer, Torosidis, was replaced by Oikonomou (K. Papadopoulos moved to right back). Sloppy and unconfident play from Greece gave Estonia most of the possession in the half as the home side pressed on for a equalizer. The Greek defense stepped up to the task at hand and cleared the many crosses that came in from the wings, holding onto their advantage at halftime. Greece did not show much improvement in the second half with Estonia continuing to control the possession. But it was Greece who found the all important second goal when Stafylidis’ clever free-kick curled around the wall to find the back of the net, giving Greece the 0-2 advantage. With the comfortable lead, Greece sat back as Estonia continued their pressure and tested Karnezis on multiple occasions. Karnezis was at the right place at the right time to deny Estonia the goal that would get the hosts back into the game. In the 79th minute, against the run of play, Mantalos’ shot was inches away from giving Greece their third goal on the night, but the crossbar denied the AEK player. In the final 10 minutes, Estonia continued their heavy pressure with Greece holding on to their 0-2 victory and their perfect record in Group H.Today’s difficult victory shows that the Greek National Team is back on track to contest a place at another major tournament. The win not only comes away from home, but with many injuries in the line-up, including Tzavellas, Samaris, and Fortounis while the two leaders of the National Team, Torosidis and Papastathopoulos, were both knocked out early in today’s match. The overall performance in Estonia was not the best, but the three points in qualifying is what will count at the end of the day.With today’s result, Greece remains one of only 3 teams that have won their first 3 qualifiers along with Belgium (defeated Gibraltar 0-6) and Switzerland. Greece sits atop of Group H with Belgium before their first big clash when they host Bosnia in November. The Bosnians, who are Greece’s main opponents for second in the group, defeated Cyprus 2-0 with two second half goals.Source: www.agonasport.com (Like us on Facebook, follow us on Instagram, and Twitter)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Morata set to complete Madrid move

first_imgAlvaro Morata is set to complete a loan move from Chelsea to Atletico Madrid this weekend amidst protest from Atleti supporters.The Spain international who was caught in a three-way transfer involving Gonzalo Higuain and Krzysztof Piątek finally looks set to seal a loan move to the Los Colcheneros.Morata struggled to live up to expectation as Chelsea’s leading striker, managing a meager goal return of 24 in the 72 appearances he made for the Blues.Gonzalo Higuain’s recent move to Chelsea to reunite with Maurizio Sarri simply meant that the 26-year-old had no future at Chelsea.In wake of the Argentine’s arrival, reports in Spain suggests that Morata had arrived in Spain on Saturday evening ahead of his imminent switch to Diego Simeone’s team.Nonetheless, Morata’s previous affiliation with Atletico’s rivals Real Madrid has already earned him a hostile reception from the club’s ultras even before his move was official.During Saturday’s league clash with Getafe, the ultras chanted against the signing of the former Juventus striker while endorsing their academy product Borja Garces.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.When asked about the fans’ reaction that echoed throughout the Wanda Metropolitano following his side’s 2-0 win, Diego Simeone insists that he understood the fans sentiments.However, he was quick to throw his full support behind the decision to bring Alvaro Morata to the club.“The fans’ opinion is always respectable,” he said, according to LiveSoccerTV.“I look for players who serve the club and the team.”last_img read more

The government directed officials to take actions “as appropriate for the implementation of sanctions” against the JeM chief, according to the notification.Masood Azhar is also banned from selling or purchasing arms and ammunition.In a major diplomatic victory for India, the United Nations Security Council agreed to designate Pakistan-based Masood Azhar as a “global terrorist” after China lifted its hold on a proposal by the US, the UK and France to blacklist him.  The information was tweeted by India’s permanent ambassador to UN, Syed Akbaruddin.

Airbnb seeing growth in business travel

first_imgTags: Airbnb By: The Associated Press Wednesday, August 8, 2018 TORONTO — Business travellers are increasingly booking stays through Airbnb and other home-sharing sites.Airbnb said Monday that nearly 700,000 companies have signed up and booked rooms through its business travel portal, almost triple the number since last year.Airbnb’s corporate travel business has been growing exponentially. In 2015 Airbnb for Business (now known as Airbnb for Work) had 250 companies signed up for corporate travel stays. Two years later that number had climbed to 250,000 companies.Airbnb says 15% of its travel nights booked are for business travellers. That compares with 20 per cent for Booking.com, which includes homes and hotels on its site.SAP Concur, which handles travel and expenses for more than 43,000 businesses, says home-sharing is especially appealing when hotel rooms are in short supply. This month, it’s adding Airbnb accommodations to its search options.But home-sharing companies have a long way to go to catch up to hotels. Marriott International says business travel accounts for 70 to 80% of nights booked at its hotels. Share Airbnb seeing growth in business travel << Previous PostNext Post >>last_img read more
