Jeff Hendrick happy to have come good on tricky night for Republic of Ireland

first_img Press Association The Derby midfielder produced one of the few moments of genuine quality in Monday’s 1-0 win at the Aviva Stadium when he cut in from the left, slipped the ball through one defender’s legs and then danced past two others before picking out striker Jonathan Walters in front of goal. His 69th-minute intervention proved crucial on the night, but it came after he had endured a difficult start to the game with Ireland struggling to find their rhythm. Hendrick said: “I gave the ball away maybe three times before it, going sideways and backwards and not really being positive with the ball, so in my head, I was saying, ‘Next time I get it, I’m just going to go at them and show a bit of positivity’. “Thankfully it worked and Jonny got the goal. The two of them were closing me down, so obviously I had to try to go through them. It went through the legs and I was happy, and then the third player ran out and thankfully I went past him. “I could have maybe fallen over, the way it was going before, but I got past and Jonny made a great run and just tapped it in, and obviously we are all delighted.” Hendrick’s scintillating run rekindled memories for one of his team-mates as he looked on from the other end of the pitch. Central defender John O’Shea produced a moment to remember during his early days at Manchester united when he famously “nutmegged” Real Madrid star Luis Figo during a Champions League quarter-final in 2003. O’Shea said of Hendrick’s effort: “He must have been watching videos of me from a few years ago!” Hendrick won his 15th senior cap against the Georgians and is rapidly becoming a fixture in Martin O’Neill’s midfield, which will be depleted for next month’s showdown with Germany after both Glenn Whelan and James McClean picked up third bookings of the campaign. The 23-year-old said: “Obviously I’m happy the manager has shown a bit of faith in me by playing me in the games. I have got to work hard not only for the team, but for myself. I don’t want to let the players down when I’m out on the pitch. “That’s the way we all are – even the lads who aren’t playing – we are all cheering each other on. That’d how tight the group is.” center_img Jeff Hendrick admits he was having one of those nights before he set off on the run which led to the decisive goal in the Republic of Ireland’s priceless 1-0 Euro 2016 qualifying victory over Georgia. last_img read more

Who’s got a top four finish in the bag? Insight into recent form of contenders

first_img 7 7 There’s only three weeks to go until the 2016/17 Premier League season comes to a close.While Sunderland’s drop to the Championship has already been confirmed, we’re still a few results away from getting a solid picture of positions at the other end of the table.In makes perfect sense, then, to take a look at the recent form and the remaining games of the clubs competing for a place in the top four…1. ChelseaThe Blues need three wins from their remaining four games to secure the title, with Spurs, currently four points behind, their major rivals for the trophy. There have been defeats to Manchester United, Tottenham and Crystal Palace in their last 10 games, but they’ve afforded themselves a few errors along the way and should get away with those results.Form in last 10 games: DWWWLWWLWWRemaining league games: Middlesbrough (H), West Brom (A), Watford (H), Sunderland (H)2. Tottenham HotspurThe Spurs players will be kicking themselves for drawing so many games between October and November, knowing they could be much closer to Chelsea. Their form since defeat to Liverpool mid-February has been faultless. The title is in Chelsea’s hands, but Tottenham continue to keep the pressure on and could close the gap to one point on Friday night with a win over West Ham United.Form in last 10 games: LWWWWWWWWWRemaining league games: West Ham (A), Manchester United (H), Leicester City (A), Hull City (A)3. LiverpoolBefore the turn of the year, Liverpool were being spoken of as real contenders for the title. Such talk, now, is no more. Their form has been inconsistent, with points too often dropped against teams they should be comfortably beating. With a game in hand over their top four rivals (two in the case of Arsenal), they can’t afford any slip-ups over the next three weeks.Form in last 10 games: LWWDWDWWLWRemaining league games: Southampton (H), West Ham (A), Middlesbrough (H)4. Manchester CityWhere to start with City? Pep Guardiola hasn’t found the winning formula yet and will be looking to next season to make his mark in Manchester. For now though, his focus is on a top four finish. A season without Champions League football would be unthinkable and Manchester United are closing in. They could be made to suffer for draws with Middlesbrough and Stoke.Form in last 10 games: WWDDDLWWDDRemaining league games: Crystal Palace (H), Leicester City (H), West Brom (H), Watford (A)5. Manchester UnitedLast weekend’s 1-1 draw with Swansea City saw United set a new unbeaten record in a single season, with it now 25 games since the defeat to Chelsea in October. The Red Devils may have failed to break into the top four during this time, but there is now only one point separating themselves and neighbours City. Form in last 10 games: WDWDDWWWDDRemaining league games: Arsenal (A), Tottenham (A), Southampton (A), Crystal Palace (H)6. ArsenalThe Gunners deserve no better than to be positioned sixth. They’ve delivered a number of miserable performances this calendar year, coinciding with the furore surrounding the future of Arsene Wenger. Defeats in their last 10 games include West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace. Only a collapse of their rivals would see them return to the top four.Form in last 10 games: LWLLDWLWWLRemaining league games: Manchester United (H), Southampton (A), Stoke City (A), Sunderland (H), Everton (H) 3 = Manchester United have won 20 points from their last 10 games 7 7 7 7 3 = Liverpool have won 20 points from their last 10 games 6.

New wave of contact with isolated tribe

first_imgIn a remote frontier post in the Brazilian Amazon, a group of 24 isolated tribespeople made contact sometime in August with representatives from Brazil’s Indian affairs department (FUNAI)—the second group to do so in less than 8 weeks. According to Survival International, a nongovernmental organization that advocates on behalf of tribal people, the newly contacted group consists of men, women, and children and likely fled from violent attacks in Peru. This has yet to be confirmed by FUNAI, which is releasing few details about this latest contact.In a press conference in Portuguese this week, however, Maria Augusta Assirati, FUNAI’s president, announced that her department is now investigating reports of lethal attacks on tribal people by outsiders in Peru. The attacks may have prompted isolated groups to flee eastward into Brazil. “We cannot confirm that,” Assirati said. “We are doing an investigation, with the support of the Peruvian government, to see what the pressures are and where they are.”Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)In recent weeks, FUNAI has faced criticism from several anthropologists for its handling of the first contact episode, in which seven tribespeople made contact with a FUNAI team and indigenous people living in the remote settlement of Simpatia, Brazil. Within days, the tribespeople, thought to be between 12 and 21 years old, contracted influenza. After receiving treatment from medics, the tribespeople returned to the forest, raising concerns that they could infect others in their home village, likely located in Peru. But at the press conference this week, Danielle Cavalcante, coordinator of Brazil’s Special Secretariat on Indigenous Health, noted that there is “no indication” that flu had spread to other tribal people.  The latest contact raises the possibility that violent attacks in Peru have pushed many isolated tribespeople into Brazil where they may soon attempt to make contact—a prospect that may be daunting to cash-strapped FUNAI. Already the department has had to request an additional $5 million from the Brazilian government to meet the needs of the newly contacted tribespeople.To try to piece together what is prompting these contacts, FUNAI sent a set of questions to the Peruvian government about illegal activities such as drug trafficking in protected lands in Peru. FUNAI officials are now analyzing Peru’s response, which they did not make public, in order to find ways to protect “not only this group that made contact, but other groups in the region,” Assirati said.The reports of violent assaults on isolated tribes in the Peruvian Amazon are plausible, says Chris Fagan, executive director of the Upper Amazon Conservancy in Jackson, Wyoming. “Peru’s anti-drug campaign has pushed cultivators, processors, and traffickers out of the Andean region and into the Amazon lowlands, and specifically into protected areas like Alto Purús National Park,” Fagan notes. Fagan himself unwittingly walked into a coca processing camp in the park in 2004. Since then, the processors have moved into even more remote corners of the park, he says. “Unfortunately, these are the same areas where the isolated tribes [live].”   The arrival of the drug trade along the Peruvian-Brazilian border has created serious problems. In a 2011 paper published in GeoJournal, Fagan and geographer David Salisbury of the University of Richmond reported that heightened conflict between uncontacted tribespeople and narcotraffickers and illegal loggers along the Purús River had led to fatalities on both sides. “[W]e can surmise more uncontacteds are killed than traffickers, as their bows and arrows are no match for the traffickers’ modern weapons,” the two researchers noted.    Fagan would like to see strong government action on both sides of the border, including intensive training for local villagers about what to do should isolated tribespeople come calling. He also thinks that both Peru and Brazil need to step up policing the drug trade in the region and protecting the routes that tribal people take through the forest. “While the drugs may be coming from Peru, the smugglers are both Peruvian and Brazilian, and their continued activities are the result of inaction by both governments,” Fagan says.last_img read more
