Defence take the credit as smash-and-grab win hides Kane and Son’s quiet day

first_imgTOTTENHAM relied on their defence to produce a huge smash-and-grab win at Wolves on Sunday.Jan Vertonghen popped up to head the stoppage time winner having spent 90 minutes being terrorised by Adama Troare.3 Mourinho’s men produced an away day masterclass – but it could have been very differentCredit: ReutersIt was the rapid winger who netted his side’s goal at Molineux, driving in from range to level up Lucas Moura’s excellent individual effort earlier on.As Jose Mourinho’s side head up to fifth in the Premier League table, Marc Mayo rates the Spurs pack who claimed the 2-1 win.PAULO GAZZANIGA – 7The goalkeeper was rarely tested for large parts given Wolves’ propensity for shooting right at him. But, having had no chance with the goal, he produced excellent strong parries to deny Raul Jimenez and Roman Saiss in the second-half.SERGE AURIER – 6Far from the erratic display Spurs fans still fear with the right-back, his zone was largely ignored defensively as Wolves hammered Vertonghen’s left flank.DAVINSON SANCHEZ – 7Faced up to a very dangerous home attack well, making blocks and ensuring openings down the middle were never too clear-cut.TOBY ALDERWEIRELD – 6Part of an overall solid defence that lost its head somewhat late on, as symbolised by Alderweireld’s awful lunge for a yellow card on Traore.3 Harry Kane toiled away with little reward at MolineuxCredit: ReutersJAN VERTONGHEN – 7Thoroughly outmatched in the pace department up against Adama Traore but stood off him and defended intelligently. He was naturally powerless at times up against the winger’s sheer athleticism but had the last laugh with a well-aimed winning header.MOUSSA SISSOKO – 6The nature of the game suited the Frenchman and he came out reasonably well, keeping an eye on Wolves’ central midfielders as they operated deep and away from dangerous areas.ERIC DIER – 6An oddly active attacking performance for the anchor man, contributing the assist for Lucas and hitting the post with a daring run in the first-half.LUCAS MOURA – 6Hit his third goal in five games under Mourinho with a powerful eighth minute finish – and very little else. For a counter-attacking setup, Spurs hardly utilised his pace at all.3 Lucas Moura struck a fine eighth minute openerCredit: EPADELE ALLI – 5The midfielder was forced to drop back a bit given Spurs’ insistence on not having the ball, leading to limited moments in attack. Played a sweet chip through to Dier in the first-half but couldn’t make his mind up when through one-on-one beforehand.SON HEUNG-MIN – 5A quiet afternoon for Son who laboured in the rain and was a spectator for much of it.HARRY KANE – 4Not his sort of game with Tottenham intent on playing balls into space on the counter-attack, especially after going ahead. Hit the deck too easily on two occasions, trying to win penalties that were simply never there.latest football newsGossipCROWD RETURNFA Cup final ‘may see 20,000 at Wembley in trial allowing some fans at games’CommentPHIL THOMASDiving and whining was never a good look and will seem worse after lockdownExclusive’I’M IN A BAD WAY’Ex-England star Kenny Sansom talks for first time since being attackedExclusiveBOURNE AGAINHowe says Cherries are stronger after lockdown with FIVE fit-again starsExclusiveSWAN THAT GOT AWAYSwansea wanted £3m Davies three years ago but couldn’t get work permitNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticBAYERN 5 DUSSELDORF 0Lewa bags two as Bayern thump rivals to close on 8th straight titleTHEIR CALLReferees in Northern Ireland will be given choice on coming back says union bossSUBS:Christian Eriksen – N/A (On for Lucas, 89)Juan Foyth – N/A (On for Alli, 90)Harry Winks – N/A (On for Son, 90)Unused: Skipp, Lo Celso, Sessegnon, WhitemanTottenham coach Jose Mourinho says everyone has the same chances in the first knockout round of the Champions Leaguelast_img read more

UAAP Season 80 Preview: Expect the ‘unpredictable’ from La Salle Green Archers

first_imgAyo is putting a lot of trust on his guards as he expects more from the quartet of reigning Rookie of the Year Aljun Melecio, Kib Montalbo, Ricci Rivero, and Joshua Caracut.But the main advantage for La Salle will be still its vaunted “mayhem” defense —which befuddled a lot of opponents last season.“The mayhem has always been there. Actually it’s not only on defense, but on offense also. But our system is evolving. We’re doing new things because of course, you have to present new things in the table because teams are adjusting to us. You can’t rely on the things you did last season. Our system is evolving and we’re doing a lot of new things that hopefully, will be effective,” he said.Ayo said that he hasn’t changed his approach with this players this year as he constantly tries to alleviate the pressure and trusts them enough to let them play their game.“I’ve gotten used to it and (the approach) is almost the same as last year. The competition is there andyou have to be ready. You have to prepare and we have to compete. But I just allow them to play and have fun because it’s basketball and they have to enjoy,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Mayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’ End of his agony?

Now, we’re a younger team, but I’m expecting my second stringers last year to respond to their bigger roles because they have bigger responsibilities now,” he said. “As much as possible, we want to be unpredictable.

Gogo takes her friends on holidays

first_imgMembers of Gogo on Tour at the Kruger National Park. (Image: Khensani Matjokane)What started out as heartbreak and loss ended up bringing a dream to life that has gone on to benefit gogos – grandmothers – by helping them to do things they were not able to achieve in their younger years.Thoko Matjokane, the chairperson and founder of the non-profit organisation Gogo on Tour, lost her brother and sister before their planned vacation. But she had a dream in which her late brother advised her to carry on their plans.Matjokane took the trip to Durban and when she came back she devised a programme for senior citizens to actively experience the country for which they had sacrificed so much. She rallied six of her friends and they used their pensions to start the initiative.Gogo on Tour, established in 2012, has grown in leaps and bounds in its three years of existence. Already it has over 60 000 active members. There are no registration fees to join or travel costs to enjoy the trips.ENJOYING THEIR GOLDEN YEARSKhensani Matjokane, Matjokane’s daughter and the managing director of Gogo on Tour, explains: “I believe we need to take care of the elderly and let them experience simple things that are fulfilling that they never got to experience because of all their sacrifices for their families.“With the rise of HIV/Aids in our communities, children are orphaned and gogos must step in and assume the role of parent once again. They become the breadwinners on the grants they receive, and therefore their golden years become a myth or wishful thinking.”Khensani still does not know how they get to make things happen, but they are never without. “I’m glad I have a strong support system to make this initiative work,” she says. “My friends know I will call them and ask if they could just give me R2 000 so I can get a bus for a trip and they oblige.”The initiative requires funding to succeed, she adds. The money is used for travel insurance, transport, accommodation, on-tour health care, food and entertainment. They are also used for the daily running of the organisation’s office and website.Khensani’s face brightens when she speaks of how the fulfilment of seeing an old woman smiling from ear to ear while sitting in a Jacuzzi, and a pensioner’s amazement after her first massage. “Those reactions are the ones that will always make me feel good about doing this. Having them discover something nice in their golden years is so fulfilling to the soul.”The “one foot in the grave” mentality needs to be eradicated from the minds of senior citizens, she adds, and giving them an enjoyable holiday goes a long way in doing this.In 2013, the Department of Tourism signed a memorandum of understanding with Gogo on Tour. This along with an endorsement letter issued to the group includes a work plan that details the relationship between the two parties.What she loves about Gogo on Tour is that it is all inclusive, Khensani says. “I received a call from a lady in Kyalami asking if she could join the group and I was gobsmacked because I [wondered] why she would want to join this initiative. Then I realised that it was about being around your peers. And because she has had the opportunity to travel she could add to educating the other gogos about its pleasures.”AVID COMMUNITY MEMBERThe elder Matjokane has long been a community leader in her hometown of Soshanguve, in Gauteng. She is a former executive member of the South African National Civic Organisation; and she has sat on the board of trustees for the corporate social investment division of South African Breweries, facilitating the first Kick Start programme that helped young black business owners in the small, medium and micro enterprises sector find funding and mentoring.In addition, when the price of bread began rising, Matjokane founded a community bakery that sold fresh bread at a reasonable cost and provided bread for impoverished families. In 1995, she was elected to sit on the first black city council of Pretoria, known as the Northern Metropolitan Sub-structure, where she served her community until she retired in 2000.last_img read more
