Carlos Kameni analyses Ter Stegen and Keylor Navas for SPORT

first_imgMarc-Andre ter Stegen and Keylor Navas represent two models of different types of goalkeeper. The style of the German has nothing to do with that of the Costa-Rican. However one thing unites them—they keep net for huge teams and are accustomed to play games in which they may only have to intervene four or five times.  29/11/2016 Upd. on 30/11/2016 at 04:01 CET Real Sociedad striker Carlos Vela’s dig at Barcelona’s MSN Of course Barcelona and Madrid always have two great goalkeepers defending their goals. Each one in their own way, but both of international quality. Both arrive at the Clasico after a season where they have ‘moved’ a bit. Ter Stegen has become the regular starter after Claudio Bravo left, while Keylor suffered an injury which kept him out for various weeks. But now they are incontestable in their sides.  Kameni analiza a los porteros del clásico: ter Stegen – Navas, dos estilos opuestos In contrast to Ter Stegen, Keylor is a goalkeeper with amazing reflexes. He has shown enormous agility between the sticks, capable of reacting in extreme situations. He is one of those goalkeepers who can save a shot in any moment with any part of his body.  TER STEGEN: MASTER WITH HIS FEET This is a detail that can pass unnoticed but in the end is very important. Players like Ter Stegen have to accustom themselves to going minutes without participating in the play at all and when they are involved it could be because of a clear threat on their goal. And this demands mental strength and sober mindedness, which is what he has shown. Keylor seems to have a slight advantage. Madrid are playing better and their defence is secure. Meanwhile Barcelona are not as firm as in other seasons and the team has let in more goals, and the defence has suffered various injury absences. But this counts for little in games like the Clasico. They are clashes that are decided by small details and the goalkeepers are key.  From my point of view what he needs to improve at is his aerial work. Ter Stegen does not dominate. However you have to take into account that currently, given the size of centre-backs, few goalkeepers do deal with the crosses and balls in. IN SPORT.ES Between the sticks he is what you would say is a sober goalkeeper, in that he does what he needs to to save the ball, without over-the-top moves. In terms of reflexes he is not especially gifted, he is not a cat with amazing reactions, using his hands and feet to make saves nobody thought he could make. But he is very solid in these aspects. KEYLOR NAVAS: AMAZING REFLEXES RELATED STORIES Navas is used to being well protected, knowing that few teams will have the opportunity to step foot in Madrid’s area, and in many cases will try their shots from some distance. It’s not easy to play against or get many shots against a Madrid goalkeeper. Keylor does not do as well when it comes from moving the ball out from the back. He’s not a goalkeeper who commits huge errors, imprecisions with passing, but he doesn’t do as well as Ter Stegen and prefers to hit the ball long instead of taking unnecessary risks. Carlos Kameni What you notice most at first is how easy it is for him to move the ball with his feet. He shows a security that you see very little in a goalkeeper. He has great precision that any other player on the pitch would like and with both feet too. The second grand virtue is his ability one on one. He knows how to bear the rival until the last moment, going to ground many times when the attacker has chosen his path and Ter Stegen can work out where the ball will go. This second more or less makes the difference, making the opponent nervous and the goal smaller, and himself bigger. last_img read more

Apoel lose 2-0 to Flora but go through 5-2 on aggregate

first_imgApoel produced yet another lacklustre performance and went down 2-0 to Flora Tallin of Estonia but went through after their 5-0 win in Nicosia.Despite bossing the first half and missing a number of chances to take the lead Apoel fell behind in the 32nd minute after Kams beat goalkeeper Waterman at his near post. Five minutes later Poom doubled the score giving the Estonians a glimmer of hope of overturning the first leg deficit.In the second half Apoel improved slightly and had the chance to reduce the arrears early on in the half but their captain Nuno Morais failed to beat Toom from the penalty spot.Apoel’s manager Bruno Baltazar was already under pressure after his team were knocked out of the Champions League by the unfancied Suduva and after this display calls for his dismissal will intensify.last_img read more

Ayimba tips Murunga for Kenya Sevens job

first_img“If you ask me now, there is no other coach better placed for the national team than Pau. (Murunga). He has achieved locally what no other coach has. I mean winning four out of six legs of the circuit is not a mean feat and this is something that he has done repeatedly. Give him the job,” Ayimba said.He added; “I have worked with him and I know his work ethic, I know what he can do and I know he can handle this job.”Murunga is a front runner for the job and speaking to Capital Sport, he says he is optimistic of getting the job based on his experience and achievements both at club and national team level.“When it comes to my achievements, there’s more than winning the circuit. As an individual, I have been with the junior and senior teams in the Olympics and my CV speaks for itself. I have also been able to achieve more as an individual in terms of coaching and technical knowledge,” the tactician told Capital Sport.He added; “I have been there as an assistant coach and I have also worked with the 15s team. I have learned more along the road and I think I am more than able to take over the job when given the chance.”Homeboyz head coach Paul Murunga. Photo/Timothy OlobuluThe Kenya Rugby Union is expected to finalize the process of picking up a successor to Innocent ‘Namcos’ Simiyu whose two-year spell at the helm of the team ends next month.The Union is expected to name the new boss by the end of the month with the Africa 7s and the return of the annual Safari 7s tournament hanging around the horizon ahead of the new World Sevens Series season in November.Meanwhile, Kenya 7s star Jeff Oluoch who also works with Muirunga at Homeboyz believes the tactician is capable of doing the job if given the chance.“He is a good coach and understands the game really well so if he is given the job I have no doubt he can do it. But as a player, I am ready to work with anyone because our job is on the pitch to play,” Oluoch who starred for the Shujaas last season noted.Meanwhile, Murunga has heaped praise on his charges for their emphatic performance in the national sevens series this season where they finished the season with 122 points after getting to five finals in the six legs of the circuit, winning four of them.Homeboyz RFC celebrating after winning Prinsloo 7s. Photo/KRUThe tactician says the performance was down to a good pre-season and a perfect start which saw them win the opening three legs in Nakuru (Prinsloo), Kabeberi (Machakos) and Sepetuka (Eldoret). Murunga was even more delighted topping it up with the Christie title, one he had not won in a while.“We had won the series already just after the quarter finals and coming into the semis, our target was to win Christies and I am glad we did it despite being in a tough final,”“The feeling is good, last year we lost the circuit by two points to Kabras, but we went back to the drawing board and made sur we were able to tick all the right boxes. Winning the first three was a big step to chasing the overall title.” The tactician noted.Meanwhile he has disclosed the team’s intricate balance of youth and experience has been their secret as they have had a good squad depth to last them the entire season.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Former Kenya Sevens head coach Benjamin Ayimba (right) with his then assistant Paul Murunga during the 2016 Safari Sevens at the Kasarani Stadium.

Wenger wants winning finish

first_imgArsenal were in this position two seasons ago and Wenger elected to send a young side out to Greece with an average age of just 21 — the youngest ever in the Champions League.However, second place in the group is still up for grabs, with even bottom club Borussia Dortmund not completely out of contention, and, while the Gunners boss will rest several stars, he still plans to field a competitive line-up at Karaiskakis Stadium for the integrity of the competition.“First, the priority is to respect the competition and to win our game. That is what I will try to do,” Wenger said.“I will go with a side who has experience and give the chance as well to some young players.“I have done that against Manchester City in the League Cup quarter-final recently and you could see the team was really up for it. The target is to respect the competition, win our game and finish the group stage unbeaten.”Wenger feels his squad deserve great credit for their achievements in Europe this season.“We haven’t lost a game up until now and I believe we had a very difficult group,” he said.“Dortmund are certainly the best side in Germany at the moment, Olympiakos and Marseille are not easy games and when you look at where we had to come from against Udinese in the play-off, I feel we can be quite satisfied with the way we managed to get through.”Arsenal may be safely into the knockout stages with a match to spare, but the same cannot be said for Premier League rivals Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United.Wenger feels a scenario of the Gunners as England’s only representatives in the knockout stages of Europe’s elite club competition would not be positive for the Premier League or Arsenal’s hopes of finishing in the top four.“It would be a little bit of a disadvantage in the Premier League, but that is a catastrophic scenario for England and would basically harm our places in Europe for the future,” Wenger said.“That is what you don’t want — that you go from four to three Champions League places. Hopefully that will not happen.“Of course the teams like Manchester United would then focus on the FA Cup and the domestic championship, but let’s see — I don’t think that will happen.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000ATHENS, Greece, December 5- Arsene Wenger insists Arsenal will give everything in their Champions League clash against Olympiakos even though the Gunners have nothing to play for in Greece on Tuesday.The Gunners have already qualified for the last 16 as group winners and that could have been the cue for Wenger to send out an under-strength team for a fixture that, at first glance, appears meaningless.last_img read more

‘These protests have no reason’ – Charlton’s hated owner responds to talkSPORT

first_imgBut the electronics magnate, who hasn’t been to a game at The Valley in two years and has barely spoken in public about Charlton, appears to be going nowhere anytime soon and has told talkSPORT’s Jim White he is taking little notice of the complaints.Jim exchanged messages with Duchatelet on Tuesday morning and revealed their content on his show shortly before talking to one of the Charlton fans who is currently protesting in Belgium.The messages read: “I am in Paris currently. Katrien Meire may have told you I have other things to care for – she knows more than I do on the matters that you seek to cover.“These protests have nothing to do with reason. Therefore, whatever we do or say, the core actors within that group will always criticise.”Listen to the full audio above to hear Jim White discussing Charlton’s plight This week, a small contingent of hardcore fans even travelled to Duchatelet’s home town of Sint-Truiden in a taxi adorned with a message urging him to leave The Valley. #TaxiForRoland | CARD launch 3 day trip to Belgium, marking Rpland Duchatelet’s 70th birthday, in protest of his running of the club. #cafc— CARD (@CharltonCARD) November 13, 2016 1 Charlton’s hated owner Roland Duchatelet has broken his silence to dismiss continued protests from the club’s supporters as ‘without reason’.Addicks fans are furious with the millionaire Belgian’s stewardship of the club, which began in January 2014, and are desperate for him to sell up and take the similarly unpopular chief executive Katrien Meire with him.Charlton have dropped into League One during Duchatelet’s disastrous reign, lost thousands of season ticket holders, and are currently searching for their EIGHTH manager in three years after Russell Slade was sacked on Monday.Supporters have staged a series of innovative protests in a bid to get the 70-year-old to leave the club – throwing plastic pigs on to the pitch to delay a match, holding a mock funeral and organising a joint march with Coventry City fans.last_img read more
