I was born in Canada and lived there about seven or eight months old. My family is Nigerian, obviously I live in England.“It’s nice to have that. I can’t play Under-21 football anymore, so the last international break I didn’t get called up to anyone. Next one, maybe, we’ll see.”Tomori was born in Canada to Nigerian parents and currently living in England, the country he represented at the U-21 level.Chelsea coach, Frank Lampard, has called on the player to ignore the rumours surrounding his international future and focus on his development at Chelsea.Lampard said: ‘It’s his choice. I wouldn’t tell him where to play internationally.”“But he’s played for [England] Under-21s and if he continues with his form and keeps improving, then, of course, I would expect there to be potential for England if Gareth chooses to select him.“He shouldn’t worry about it at the minute. He should just worry about how he’s playing every game or how he trains every day and that will be a nice problem for him, hopefully, if he’s eligible for three. He can chose which one he wants.”Tomori played for Derby County in the Championship last season under Frank Lampard, and he won the club’s player of the year award.Tags: Fikayo TomoriNigerialast_img read more

Cornwall ready to shed weight for Windies call

first_imgTALENTED Leeward Islands all-rounder Rahkeem Cornwall has admitted that he is desperate to earn a spot in the West Indies team and willing to do whatever it takes to make that dream a reality.The 24-year-old player has been one of the region’s brightest prospects in recent years having notched several successful domestic cricket seasons.In the most recent limited overs competition Cornwall picked up a total of 10 wickets for 313 runs and amassed 251 runs with a highest score of 74.The player also shone for the regional team during the West Indies A tour of Sri Lanka in October of last year where he claimed 23 wickets with his off-spin, including a career-best eight for 108 in the opening game in Colombo.Cornwall has, however, failed to secure a call to the senior team, with many speculating that his omission has been due to his widely documented weight issues.The regional sport’s governing body Cricket West Indies (CWI), however, recently promised a special programme to help the player prepare to move to the next level. The programme crafted by CWI is said to include coaches and dieticians. For his part Cornwall insists he is ready to meet the challenge.“If losing weight is the issue then that is why I am on the programme with the West Indies Cricket Board so I am putting in my best and putting in the work to lose the weight if that is the case; because it can’t be performance so I will do what I have to do to make the West Indies team,” he said.last_img read more

Kiffin dynasty in full effect for 2012

first_imgAndie Hagemann is a senior majoring in communication. Her column “Armchair Quarterback” runs Tuesdays. On Jan.12, 2010, USC announced Lane Kiffin as the head coach of the USC football program.The decision left some scratching their heads. Sure, Kiffin had previously been involved with the football team serving under then-head coach Pete Carroll. Most Trojan fans, however, questioned Kiffin’s ability to handle a top football program like USC.After leaving USC following the 2006 season, Kiffin sought greener pastures in the NFL. Hired as the head coach of the Oakland Raiders in 2007, Kiffin led the team to a disastrous 4-12 season. Kiffin’s sophomore season seemed just as lackluster, only winning one of four games before his dismissal as head coach.Kiffin returned to college football as head coach for the Tennessee Volunteers. In 2009, the Volunteers finished 7-6 and suffered a devastating loss in the Chik-Fil-A Bowl game against Virginia Tech.Kiffin parted ways with Tennessee in early 2010 and packed his bags to return to USC. This time, Kiffin would be in charge. Of course, controversy plagued the arrival of Kiffin because of the surfacing of allegations stemming from his time at Tennessee.Two seasons later, Kiffin has since proven the critics wrong during his time as head coach.In his inaugural season, Kiffin led the Trojans to an 8-5 season, in which two of the five losses were due to last-minute field goals. Kiffin also became the first coach since Jess Hill, in 1951, to start the season 4-0, in his first season as head coach. Under Kiffin, the Trojans improved greatly from the 2009 season and averaged six yards per play.In 2011, Kiffin led the Trojans to a 10-2 season, and a monumental victory over the Oregon Ducks, one of the top teams in the country. USC, the outright winner of the south division in the Pac-12 conference, was primed to compete with the Ducks once more had it not been for the two-year postseason ban, handed down by the NCAA from violations committed during the previous coaching era.The Trojans averaged 294.2 passing yards and 162.6 rushing yards per game, proving that the Trojans are back on top of the college football elite.2012 begins a new era for USC football.No longer prohibited from postseason play, Kiffin has the opportunity to potentially play for the Pac-12 conference championship and the 2013 national championship.Kiffin has an arsenal of returning players for the 2012 season, including many incoming top recruits.Of the four juniors eligible for the NFL draft, only two, offensive tackle Matt Kalil and defensive end Nick Perry, opted to go pro. Quarterback Matt Barkley and safety T.J. McDonald chose to return for their senior seasons. Both players had outstanding seasons in 2011, earning numerous awards and accolades, encouraging fans to think of what is to come in 2012.With Barkley and McDonald returning, the notion of the 2013 national championship and the imminent rise of the Kiffin dynasty is not too far-fetched.The arrival of Kiffin has recharged the Trojan fan base, setting their sights on postseason play for the first time in two years and the possibility of a trip to Miami in 2013.With all the right pieces of the puzzle intact, only time will tell if Kiffin’s visor will be gold plated or thrown away.last_img read more

UW striving for third seed

first_imgWith the Big Ten Tournament looming, the Wisconsin women’s soccer team concludes the regular season with a match against Iowa on senior day at the McClimon Complex Saturday.Although the Badgers have already secured a spot in the conference tournament, their seeding is still on the line; a win would grant UW the three seed, while a loss would make them the four seed. Iowa, on the other hand, could possibly fail to earn a postseason berth if it loses depending on how the other conference games play out.To be sure, even though UW has a guaranteed spot in the conference tournament, it does not mean the team can let down its guard to any degree.“You don’t want them to be complacent and looking forward at all,” head coach Paula Wilkins said. “This is a game for seeding for us and for survival for Iowa, and all the tournament games, both Big Ten and NCAA, they’re all games of survival, and so you want them to see that. You want them to feel on edge here, not comfortable.”Encouraging for UW is the offensive surge it has displayed in the last two games. The Badgers’ seven goals in their last two games, wins over Purdue and Indiana, is their highest two-game goal total of the season. Also noteworthy is the fact that six different players were responsible for scoring those seven goals.“I think the best part about [the production] was that so many different people scored in the Purdue game,” senior forward Laurie Nosbusch said. “So I think that just shows we have a bunch of different threats and don’t have to necessarily rely on one person.”Wilkins added that strategic shuffling has allowed the Badgers to develop rhythm offensively. The play of the backline has been partly responsible for the success as well; it helped in maintaining ball possession and creating space in the midfield, she noted.The offensive success has been coupled with continuing defensive stinginess. The Badgers have allowed only four goals in their past eight contests, with three of those games going into double overtime.The Hawkeyes will put UW senior goalie Michele Dalton and the rest of the defense to the test once more, as Iowa is currently third in the conference in shots, goals and points.“They’re similar to us in terms of their system, in terms of their personnel,” Wilkins said. The forward up front [Cloe Lacasse] is very dangerous and a different type of forward than we’re used to playing in the Big Ten.”Dalton, naturally, is aware of the Hawkeyes’ capabilities.“I know a couple of the girls on the [the Iowa team] personally. I know they’re pretty dangerous,” Dalton said.Dalton also noted the Badgers could improve in their defensive organization, especially in the back. However, she was not hesitant to voice her confidence in the defense she helms.“We’ve shut down some major offensive threats, and we’re fairly good at that, so I’m not too concerned about giving up unnecessary shots on goal,” Dalton said. “I think that we make teams work to earn their shot, and I suspect we’ll be doing that this weekend as well.”It will also be interesting to see if the Wisconsin offense can continue to produce against a Hawkeye defense that is fourth in the conference in goals allowed with 17, only one more than leaders Wisconsin, Michigan State and Penn State have each allowed.“I think it’s just going to come down to if we can improve on playing through the midfield and being able to connect the back to the front more successfully,” Nosbusch said. “That’ll make us more successful in the Big Ten Tournament.”Granted, the goal is always to win and UW will take the highest seed it can get before it heads to Northwestern, but perhaps the most important area of focus, apart from strategic considerations, is having the appropriate mindset as the critical portion of the season begins.“Go big or go home.” Wilkins said to describe the stakes at this point. “This is when games really come down to the details and making a difference and having the mentality that every game could be your last.”last_img read more
