Powerade VIDEO: I was so happy to be there – Javier Hernandez’s Real Madrid evolution Goal Last updated 1 year ago 18:00 6/7/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Getty Images Powerade Javier Hernández Germany v Mexico Germany Mexico Real Madrid World Cup Videos The Mexico star saw his game time limited in the Spanish capital but boasted an impressive goal return, including a memorable strike against Atletico Javier Hernandez’s loan move to Real Madrid from Manchester United in the summer of 2014 didn’t pan out in the way he might have hoped it would.Used rather sparingly by then-manager Carlo Ancelotti, Chicharito made just 10 starts in all competitions in the Spanish capital – but hit a brilliant nine goals. The lack of game time would have no doubt been a source of frustration, but the Mexico star understood the situation he was walking into and insists he was grateful for the chance to play for arguably the biggest club in the world.

Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now “When I went to Real Madrid, rather than feeling more prepared than any other player, I arrived with the possibility of competing for a position,” Hernandez said. “I went as the one who could be in the starting XI or being a substitute and do the best I could. I have felt this way in any part of the world, and I have seen it that way. “I swear to you, and I promise you that I did not feel any pressure, on the contrary, pure motivation, real responsibility, pure illusion, genuine happiness and a lot of gratitude to be there.”Though his time on the pitch was limited, Chicharito did manage to provide a lasting memory for Madrid fans with a late winner against local rivals Atletico in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final. And his typical, close-range strike represented more than just a victory to Hernandez.“When I scored that night what I felt was the answer to what I had been doing during that year. The reward to all the work, all the training,” he said.“Our record and results [against Atleti] were a little negative in those days, so to beat them 1-0 at home and progress [to the semi-final of the Champions League] for me and the fans was something incredible.”
The agreement will also allow the FAO to provide better technical assistance in projects in which the CDB is providing finance, allow the FAO to directly execute projects with funds from the CDB, and for both organisations to provide joint assistance to countries of common membership. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations and the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) have signed a Framework Cooperation Agreement for the Bank to approve a grant of US$1.2 million for the FAO to implement a cassava project in Dominica, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago. Story Highlights The results will be used to provide guidance to member countries on the viability of commercial cassava production as a suitable substitute for wheat in the production of composite breads, traditional and new products. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations and the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) have signed a Framework Cooperation Agreement for the Bank to approve a grant of US$1.2 million for the FAO to implement a cassava project in Dominica, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago.Titled: ‘Cassava Industry – Market Assessment and Technology Validation and Dissemination’, the project is to facilitate the testing of improved cassava varieties and production systems, and conduct market assessments.The results will be used to provide guidance to member countries on the viability of commercial cassava production as a suitable substitute for wheat in the production of composite breads, traditional and new products.The signing ceremony took place today (March 5) on the opening day of the 35th staging of the FAO’s Regional Conference for Latin America and the Caribbean, being held at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, in St. James.The agreement will also allow the FAO to provide better technical assistance in projects in which the CDB is providing finance, allow the FAO to directly execute projects with funds from the CDB, and for both organisations to provide joint assistance to countries of common membership.Speaking at the signing, FAO Sub-regional Director (ad interim), Dr. Lystra Fletcher-Paul, said the initiative is one of many in the Caribbean, aimed at reducing the growing food import bill which currently stands at US$5 billion per annum.Dr. Fletcher-Paul further noted that more than 40 per cent of the food imports in the Caribbean comprise products that are high in processed carbohydrates, sugar, fats and salt.“The consumption of these foods is linked to the prevalence of overweight and obesity and, by extension, the high incidents of chronic non-communicable diseases, the leading cause of deaths in the region,” she said.She explained that the agreement facilitates the ease of action for the FAO to implement immediate systems to substitute wheat with cassava.“This is particularly important because of the increase in malnutrition in the region. If we hope to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal 2, which is to eradicate hunger by 2030, we must reverse the trends of poor nutrition,” she added.Director of Projects at the CDB, Mr. Daniel Best, said his organisation welcomes this new framework agreement, which will broaden and strengthen collaboration between the Bank and the FAO.Mr. Best noted that through the agreement, “we have a streamlined modality within which we can partner with FAO to provide technical assistance to projects financed by the Bank.”The agreement also includes a new feature which will allow member countries to directly engage the FAO with loan or grant funds provided by the CDB.Mr. Best said the CDB is optimistic that the agreement will facilitate quick turnover time needed to finalise agreements between the FAO and CDB.“The future looks bright for the partnership between the CDB and the FAO. We look forward to the opportunities that this new agreement will create, and wish to thank all involved for making this milestone possible,” he said.
WILMINGTON, MA — Below are a couple of recent Wilmington Little League game summaries:AAA: Astros vs. Pirates on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at Boutwell FieldAnother hard-fought game was waged between the Pirates and the Astros. After leading for most of the game, the Pirates were unable to hold off the tenacious Astros, falling 10 to 8 in 5 innings. Mickey Moroney was stellar for the Pirates in his first game on the mound pitching two solid innings. With some timely hitting, the Pirates held leads of 4 to 1 and 5 to 3 into the middle innings. The Astros’ starter Dylan Costantiello struck out one and made a nice play in the field during his inning of work. Tony Cummings then pitched three innings, striking out seven and making two plays of his own. Finally, Cael Considine baffled the Pirates’ hitters in the last inning, striking out two. Solid fielding is emerging as one of the Astros’ strengths. Considine’s two putouts at first base, Aidan Raposa’s great play at third for an unassisted putout, and Owen Wills snaring a sharp grounder at third holding the Pirates’ batter to a single were three examples. Every Astro found his way on base during the game led by Kevin Pruslin, John Roofe, Patrick Moriarty, and Jake Gryglik who were each on base three times. Roofe continued his hot hitting with a single and a booming double. Moriarty ripped two singles as the other player with a two-hit afternoon. Raposa launched a screaming single up the middle in the third inning and Pruslin, Cummings, Considine, Andrew Santo, and Kyle Price added singles of their own. Costantiello, Connor Jamieson, Gryglik, and Wills were among those who displayed their keen batting eyes working walks and Gryglik again showed his blazing speed with a stolen base. The final rally included clutch hits and walks by Roofe, Santo, Raposa, Jamieson, and then the game-winning single by Moriarty scoring Santo. Overall, the Pirates and Astros left it all out on the field and had a great time doing so!Single A: Ray vs. Pirates on Monday, May 6, 2019 at Boutwell FieldThe Pirates and Rays played a close game. The Rays made several great plays and had strong pitching performances from Michael Crowley, Tommy Roofe, and Ryan Doherty. Defense was impressive tonight featuring great plays by Brendan Cyr and an impressive inning as catcher by Sean Witalisz. The bats were alive early on with some big hits by Benji Hebert, Alex Sullivan, Chris Gattineri, Jackson Childs, and Cameron White. The Pirates were led on the mound by Zach Maiella, Ryan Biggins, and Bart Zaino, while Joshua Lopez and Colby O’Brien were strong behind the plate. Jack Jamieson had a great defensive game at first base as well. The bats were on fire early, with Nico McCollem starting things with a leadoff hit. Bradley Stephen, Sam Beaudoin, and Sean Theodos joined in with their own timely hits, and Ben Sawyer showed off his speed running the bases.(NOTE: Summaries provided by the Wilmington Little League.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.
