“Juventus is a strong team and is shown by the finals he played in recent seasons. They have always lacked something to make a difference, and now they have it thanks to Cristiano. He is the player that makes you win the important things. This year Juventus is among the favorites, but there are also the usual ones, Madrid, Barcelona, Liverpool, “he said.In the PSG, Mbappé shares the costumes with players like Neymar Júnior or Icardi, with whom he developed a good relationship not only in the field. The explosive trident of the Parisian club already accumulates 51 goals this year (21 Mbappé, 13 Neymar and 17 Icardi).“Neymar is a great player, with whom I have a good relationship off the field. He lived two difficult seasons, but he is recovering his best level. It’s good news for Paris Saint Germain fans and those who love football“, he declared, before surrendering to Icardi.“Mauro is one of the best strikers in the world, but he arrived with humility, determined to help the team. He does not think of anything else to score when he is in the penalty area. He has already scored a lot, proving that he is an important player for the PSG. We have a lot of affinity with Icardi, we have complementary play styles. The important thing is to continue, “he continued.However, the one that surprised him most in the PSG was the Italian international midfielder Marco Verratti.“Verratti is a phenomenon, it seems obvious to me. He is the player that has impressed me the most since I was in the PSG. It’s great and it’s an incredible luck to have you on my team. I’m proud to play with him, “he admitted. The French Kylian Mbappé, striker of Paris Saint Germain, said that every Gallic player of his generation He grew up with Zinedine Zidane, current coach of Real Madrid, “as an idol” and acknowledged that he wants to have a career similar to the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo.“If you’re French, you obviously grow up with Zidane as an idol. Then another idol was Cristiano Ronaldo, with whom I have already been lucky enough to measure myself as a rival, also with the national team, “Mbappé said in an interview published Wednesday by the Italian newspaper” La Gazzetta dello Sport. ““Then I loved the great Brazilian players, like (Edson Arantes do Nascimento) Pelé, (Ronaldo de Assis Moreira) Ronaldinho, Ronaldo Nazario or Ricardo Kaká.. To my fans I want to give the message of a boy who believed in his dream, giving his best, trying to overcome his limits and leave a mark on my sport, “added the 21-year-old world champion forward.The French striker explained that for the future of his career he is inspired by what Cristiano Ronaldo achieved, because now “It’s late” to follow in the footsteps of Argentine Lionel Messi and play his entire career in one club.“It’s too late for me to do a career like Messi, I would have had to stay in Monaco. Without taking any merit from Messi, now I have to be inspired by the career of Cristiano“, said.And it is that Mbappé has a deep admiration for CR7, which he considers as the right player to return the Champions League to Juventus this season.
Iker Casillas has announced, through his Twitter account, that he will stand for the presidential elections of the Spanish Football Federation to face Luis Rubiales.The goalkeeper, who has not yet made a decision on his retirement after suffering a heart attack last year, Iker Casillas, wrote on his Twitter account: “SI will present myself to the Presidency of the @RFEF when the elections are called. Together we will put our Federation at the height of the best football in the world: that of Spain “.The decision assumes that Casillas, 38, will leave football after 21 years as a professional and 881 games played in clubs plus 167 in the National Team, although at no time does the goal confirm it. Casillas already held a meeting last week with the new Secretary of State for Sport, Irene Lozano, to inform him that he would be present at the elections, regardless of whether they were held before or after the Tokyo Olympics.“I have informed the president of my Club, FC Porto, of this decision, to whom I can only express my deepest gratitude. We are working with the utmost respect and decision in our candidacy. More than 23,000 voters await us in fair and transparent elections. 139 assembly members will decide. Thank you all for all the love I have received and received. Your support and your strength encourage me. Go for it!”, he explains in his Twitter account.

Everton scraped through to the third round of the League Cup after needing an extra-time own goal to edge past Barnsley at Oakwell.Barnsley took a surprise lead in the tie with first Sam Winnall and then Marley Watkins putting the hosts 2-0 ahead.Goals from Kevin Mirallas and Steven Naismith levelled it up before Dan Crowley restored the lead for the hosts.Romelu Lukaku scored to take the game to extra time before a Marc Roberts own goal and a second Lukaku goal sent Everton through to the next round.John Stones, who started the game despite handing in a transfer request, was at fault for the first goal as Everton failed to clear the ball before Winnall took possession to drill in a shot in to the bottom corner of the net. Still interested Chelsea?Things got worse before they got better for the Toffees as Barnsley got a second after an old-fashioned route one ball was not dealt with by Joel Robles leaving Watkins to take advantage to score.Everton lifted themselves after half-time when Mirallas fired home a delightful volley after Barnsley did their best impression of Everton’s earlier defending when failing to clear away the danger.Everton eventually got level as Naismith was left unmarked to head home and it looked as though the visitors would run away with it from there.However that was not the case as Barnsley snatched the lead back immediately when Crowley finished emphatically after good work from Reece Wavara on the wing.The game to yet another twist before the final whistle when Gerard Deulofeu’s low cross was instinctively stabbed home by Lukaku after 78 minutes as the game entered extra-time.Deulofeu caused havoc again for the winner as his cross, meant for Lukaku, put past his own goalkeeper by Roberts.Lukaku then added his second with four minutes remaining to secure the win as Everton advanced to round three where they will face Reading.

The company continued for two weeks to pay the salaries of workers who could not get to their jobs because of the storm’s damages. Northrop set about trying to help employees get relocated and took care of them in other ways, he said. “Emergency rations are always kept on hand by the company, so those were shipped immediately to the areas hit the hardest,” he said. Retirees’ club chapter President Lee Phillips conducted the business portion of the meeting. It was noted that there are 60,000 Northrop retirees, and membership in the Antelope Valley Chapter of the club now stands at 324. LANCASTER – Northrop Grumman retirees heard an optimistic appraisal of the company’s business outlook for 2006. Jim Barnfather, vice president of marketing and business development for the Northrop Grumman Federal Credit Union, spoke to a retirees’ club gathering Thursday at the Essex House. Despite major destruction of company facilities by Hurricane Katrina, the company may gain a strong role in the area of space technology and exploration with its competition for a contract to build America’s next manned spacecraft. “We’ll be competing against Lockheed Martin when it (the contract) is awarded early next year. We’re working on that with Boeing and if that hits, it will be a very, very, very big deal,” Barnfather said. Menus for the week at the senior life nutrition sites in Lancaster and Palmdale have been announced. All meals include bread, margarine and coffee, tea or milk, for a suggested donation of $2. Monday: Hot roast beef sandwich, mashed potatoes, winter squash, tomato rice soup, marinated salad, cheesecake. Tuesday: Fish fillet, au gratin potatoes, stewed tomatoes, egg drop soup, creamy coleslaw, gelatin with fruit. Wednesday: Roast turkey, bread dressing, peas and carrots, marinated beets, orange. Thursday: Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, spinach, soup, tossed salad, peaches. Friday: Barbecued chicken salad, macaroni salad, orange juice, tapioca pudding.
