They return as the competition’s top scorers this season with 28 goals and will be feared by the other qualifiers.“This year, we belong there,” Klopp said, “it should not be a surprise. There will be seven other very good teams — maybe four of them will be from England, which doesn’t make to easier, to be honest. But we have a chance, for sure, to go through to the semifinals.”Porto coach Sergio Conceicao was even more confident about Liverpool’s chances.“Liverpool are definitely one of the teams that can win the competition,” he said. “They are a really strong team, everyone knows that.”Also in the draw for the last 16 will be Real Madrid, which beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 away on Tuesday to clinch a 5-2 aggregate win in the marquee matchup in the round of 16.ADVERTISEMENT UK plans Brexit celebrations but warns businesses may suffer It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Cavs star Love reveals battle with panic attacks Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano GALLERY: Barangay Ginebra back as PBA Governors’ Cup kings Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew LATEST STORIES Cristiano Ronaldo was one of the scorers for Madrid, the Portugal forward netting for the ninth straight game in the Champions League.

The joint-top scorer in the Premier League — Mo Salah — and world’s most expensive defender — Virgil van Dijk — were on the bench for Liverpool, but most of its other big names played.And it was the hosts who had the better of the chances, with Sadio Mane — the scorer of a hat trick in the first leg — hooking a volley over the bar and then striking a low shot against the post in a low-key first half.Roberto Firmino ran clear but ended up having a shot blocked on the hour, before immediately being taken off by Klopp as Liverpool’s main striker was protected ahead of the United game.Porto pressed late on but to no avail, as it failed to collect a first away win over an English opponent in the Champions League at the 13th attempt. The visitors became the first team to stop Liverpool from scoring in this season’s competition, not that Klopp minded too much.“It feels good, to be honest,” he said. “It’s a long time.

Even when we’re down, we can bounce back and I think we showed and typified it.”ADVERTISEMENT From my vantage point on the commentators’ booth, it was tough to see the team that I had the privilege of covering extensively since 2010 once again on the brink of falling short. The Tajikistan goal almost sucked the life out of the stadium and put a dent on the Azkals’ morale.Only three players from that 2010 team that pulled off the “Miracle in Hanoi” were in the squad this time—Phil and James Younghusband and Neil Etheridge—while one of the heroes of the Suzuki Cup tournament that year, Chris Greatwich, was on the bench.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownThe Azkals, taking the last of three cracks at making the AFC Asian Cup for the first time, are on the ropes again, a goal down against a Tajikistan team that had been unfazed by a huge crowd.From Vietnam to the Maldives to North Korea, the Azkals chased for respectability and recognition and felt the huge burden of lifting up the sport that had been in the background in the Philippines for so long. Every game felt like it was the last, knowing the fate of the sport in the country always depended on the result they delivered.

All the players are so appreciative of everyone who watched and supported.”Etheridge put things in perspective.“It’s a massive moment for Filipino football,” said the Cardiff City stopper. “It’s been 10 years in the making since I started. It’s a fantastic journey—highs and lows. Hopefully, the Philippines will kick on football and obviously the national team as well.”Realistic goalsThe 28-year-old said the country had to be realistic with qualifying for the World Cup, although he hopes picking up milestones like qualifying for the Asian Cup inspires the younger generation of players.Azkals manager Dan Palami waxed emotional as he looked back on the Azkals’ journey that included three heartbreaking AFF Suzuki Cup semifinal losses to the defeat in the Challenge Cup Finals four years ago.“We’ve not always been successful, but to make it to the bigger stage, after all those heartaches, its fulfilling,” Palami said. “It’s a feeling that can’t be described. We are able to achieve a lot of things because of our perseverance. We showed the heart of the Azkals.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Younghusband instigated the comeback with a through ball to Iain Ramsay, who then found Kevin Ingreso for a header that will live long in the memory of Philippine football fans.“We kept on pushing forward,” said Ingreso. “We knew we had chances and we knew we can press them.”50th goalTo cap off a fairytale ride, Phil sealed the win from the penalty spot after Patrick Reichelt was fouled inside the area in stoppage time. It was Phil’s 50th international goal and it could not have come at a better time for the Azkals skipper.“For me, the feeling of going to the Asian Cup, that’s what matters to me,” Phil said.“Like I said, if it came from this game or in 10 games’ time, that wasn’t on my mind. It was about getting the win.”“If we’d won with my own goal, that would’ve meant more for me. To have the feeling at the same time makes it more special. I can’t believe the work everyone’s put in for this moment and all those moments when people were doing extra runs, extra stretching, families are helping each other, it’s all for this moment. It’s all worth it.”Golden generationPhil said the win cemented the legacy of the golden generation of players who have suited up for the country in the past decade.From the Armed Forces players like Chieffy Caligdong, Yanti Barsales and Ian Araneta to Rob Gier, Juani Guirado and Jerry Lucena, Phil said everyone deserved as much credit for putting Philippine football where it is today.“Everyone who has been a part of this, I just feel very blessed that I get to play the sport I love and enjoy it in a country I love,” said Phil. “I don’t think about the legacy. I’m just happy about these moments.

Local ballerina dances her way into national summer program

first_imgStewart also talked about pursing a career in dance, saying “I’d love to, I really enjoy dancing, I work hard at it and push myself constantly. Right now I defintely want to be a dancer.”Keily Stewart has been dancing her entire life, registering for her first classes only months after she was able to stand on her own two feet. Recently, her passion for dancing earned her first place in the B.C. Performing Arts Provincial Competition for Level 1, which also included tap and jazz.She will be competing in her first competition of the year this coming December, when she heads south, to compete at the JUMP Dance Convention in Vancouver, B.C. She is one of 150 national and international students to be selected for the summer program which runs out of Toronto. Keily will study there for the month of July 2012. Canada’s National Ballet School is one of the world’s top training institutions for young aspiring dancers and teachers, attracting students from nationally, as well as globally. The school’s alumni perform in over 65 companies world-wide, and dance for prestigious institutions such as The National Ballet of Canada, American Ballet Theatre and London’s Royal Ballet.The school is also the only ballet academy within North America that provides top level training, academic instruction and residential care on the same campus.

The selection process for such programs is solely based on a dancer’s talent and is something that Keily “would definitely like to try out.”Studying at a summer dance school is nothing new to the 13 year-old Fort St. John ballerina. The past two summers, Keily has studied with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet in Winnipeg, Manitoba, an experience she says “helped her grow as a dancer and a person.”She says being accepted into Canada’s National Ballet School summer program is very rewarding, and she is looking forward to seeing the difference in styles between the Toronto school and the other ballet schools she has studied with.Advertisementlast_img read more

McHUGH WELCOMES RETENTION OF 9% VAT RATE FOR TOURISM INDUSTRY

first_imgDONEGAL North East TD Joe McHugh has welcomed the retention of the 9% VAT rate for Ireland’s tourism sector – as the weakening euro could help increase visitors to the county from the North and Britain.There’s a hope the double boost could help the industry in the coming months.Minister for Tourism Leo Varadkar confirmed the move in the Dáil today claiming that the reduction has been successful in increasing employment and it has mostly been passed on to consumers. Fine Gael TD Joe McHugh welcomed the decision and said it was “positive news for the tourism industry”.He added: “This extension of the lower rate will enable the industry to plan and to market for next year in the knowledge that Ireland will be able to offer lower-cost tourism options to tourists.”Retail Ireland has welcomed the retention of the 9% VAT rate, but called for similar relief to be shown to the retail sector.Speaking on RTÉ’s Drivetime, its director Stephen Lynam said Ireland had the joint fifth highest VAT rate in Europe. He said the increase to 23% in the last budget has had a negative impact on retail sales.“Retail sales have fallen in the first quarter of this year. The fall in February was the sharpest since 2009 at the pit of the recession.”So we would like to see the Minister reverse his decision – decrease the VAT rate and hopefully see an increase in the VAT take,” said Mr Lynam.Irish Hotels Federation President Michael Vaughan welcomed the retention rate for the tourism industry.“We’re seeing real jobs created. I think 11,000 jobs have been created since the VAT was reduced. So it is giving great certainty for 2013, and The Gathering is underpinned by this as well,” he told RTE.
