first_imgFemi SolajaThe iconic Wembley Stadium in London will hug the limelight tonight for a special reason when ’embattled’ Real Madrid visits the ground for one of the Match-day four matches of the UEFA Champions league tie against host, Tottenham Hotspurs for the leadership of Group H.Destiny has put both teams in similar position both in their respective domestic leagues and in the on-going Champions League and tonight may just the an opportunity to settle the score for both teams to follow their paths in the ongoing season.Reason? Both clubs seem to be mirroring each other’s results which is not something common in modern day football.Aside the fact that both teams have same number of points in the group, the goals scored, against and goal different are same with the reverse fixture of the score draw in Santiago Bernabue as the best option to settle their placement before the end of the group stage of the competition next month. In their respective domestic league, Real Madrid, who are the defending champion of La Liga are presently third and a similar position occupied by Spurs in the English Premiership.Both teams have played 10 matches respectively, won six each , drew two, and lost two. As if that is not enough, both sides are eight points a drift of their respective league leaders in FC Barcelona and Manchester City!Both teams have scored 19 goals respectively in the league, with seven each in the Champions League just as they have also conceded two goals each in Europe. Interestingly, both teams lost in their respective leagues last weekend by a goal margin.Although the home jersey of both teams is white, tonight will be different because the Champions League defending champion, Madrid, will come out in an away jersey which is purple.Ahead of tonight’s match, reports have it that Tottenham Hotspur point man, Harry Kane, trained with the first-team squad and will be assessed ready for the Wembley duel.Kane, who has scored 13 goals in 12 appearances in all competitions for Spurs this season, missed defeats by West Ham United and Manchester United after suffering a minor hamstring strain.“We’re very confident (he will play) – he’s on the list. We have one more day to assess him but maybe it’s possible he can play tomorrow,” manager Mauricio Pochettino told a news conference on Monday.“I don’t want to say 100 per cent because we have one more day. Today and yesterday was good at training. Now it’s with medical staff to take the right decision.“He was training with group and was good – at same level as team. We’ll take the best decision for him, first of all, and then for the team.”Winger Erik Lamela, who has not played for a year due to hip problems, also took part in the training drills. Midfielder Victor Wanyama was Spurs’ only absentee but he will resume training later this week.Spurs will be also boosted by the return of Dele Alli, who was suspended for the opening three matches of their European campaign.“He has a good opportunity tomorrow (Wednesday) to play if I decide to put him in the starting XI, and make his Champions League debut (this season),” Pochettino hinted yesterday.“I’m happy because we have one player more to help the team what we want to achieve, to reach the next stage of the Champions League,” the Spurs’ boss concluded ahead of tonight clash at the Wembley.FIXTURES 8:45pm Liverpool Vs Maribor Sevilla Vs Spartak Napoli Vs Man City Shakhtar Vs Feyenoord Besiktas Vs Monaco Porto Vs Leipzig Dortmund Vs APOEL Spurs Vs Real MadridShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

first_imgBut first things first, USC needs to focus on discipline and carrying out its assignments against a dangerous Arizona State offense. Back from the shoulder injury that sidelined him since the Trojans’ romp over Arizona Oct. 19, Hufanga seems ready to reassume his leadership role in USC’s young secondary. USC contained Oregon senior quarterback Justin Herbert out of the gate, but let up after redshirt sophomore safety Isaiah Pola-Mao’s ejection in the second quarter. Overall, the unit allowed Herbert to complete 80.8% of his passes and account for four total touchdowns while only forcing one turnover. “He’s a different type of scrambler,” defensive line coach Chad Kauha’aha’a said. “If there’s any type of opening, he’ll take it. So we’ve got to be highly, highly aware of it.” “It’s definitely hurtful because I couldn’t even come back to the sideline and talk to my guys, rally them up,” Pola-Mao said of Saturday’s ejection. “It’s just sad being in the locker room when the team is out there. Being by myself in there, it’s something I don’t plan on doing again.” After allowing Oregon to score five consecutive touchdowns in a 56-24 blowout over the weekend, the Trojan defense looked healthier at practice Wednesday. With key playmakers sophomore safety Talanoa Hufanga and freshman defensive lineman Drake Jackson likely to jump back in against Arizona State, the squad looks forward to a more complete showing in Tempe, Ariz. “We’ve got a very workmanlike group,” defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast said. “They came in here ready and hungry and wanted to see the tape as quickly as they could and move on to make the corrections … So it’s been a good couple days.” “Whatever the coaches want, I’m just trying to pay attention to detail in our practice and know my assignments,” he said. “If I get the opportunity to go in, I’ll make the most of it.” Even with that starting talent restored to the game plan, the Trojans aren’t underestimating the Sun Devils’ offense. Arizona State true freshman quarterback Jayden Daniels — a dual-threat with scrambling talents reminiscent of Arizona’s senior signal-caller Khalil Tate — maneuvers gracefully through the pocket and confuses opposing secondaries.center_img “They have talent all around the board,” Pola-Mao said of Arizona State’s offense. “At receiver they have great talent, quarterback and running back … As long as we communicate and do our job and play Trojan football, I think we’ll be good.” Sun Devils junior running back Eno Benjamin is also an elusive presence. With 679 rushing yards and seven touchdowns on the season, the speedy, dynamic player is a weapon in the Arizona State backfield. Redshirt sophomore safety Isaiah Pola-Mao tackles an Oregon wide receiver. Pola-Mao was ejected for targeting during last Saturday’s game and will return to face a tough Arizona State offense. ( Feitong Du / Daily Trojan) If USC intends to stay in the Pac-12 Championship conversation, it must win out against ASU, Cal and UCLA. That requires the Trojans to display a prowess on the road they haven’t yet shown this season. The time since Saturday’s blowout at the Coliseum has been spent nursing injuries, reviewing film and preparing for Arizona State’s mobile offense. With Pola-Mao back in the lineup, along with likely returns from Hufanga and Jackson, the Trojans’ young defense has a revived leadership corps.  USC’s defense can’t afford to lose focus against such a talented quarterback. Arizona State ranks No. 19 in red zone offense, scoring nine rushing and three passing touchdowns in 25 attempts this season. Daniels has only thrown two interceptions through eight games and won’t likely give the Trojans many chances to turn him over the ball.last_img read more

first_imgGuyanese-born British actress Letitia Wright is among the top-notch cast for the much-anticipated movie, Black Panther, which is set to officially hit theaters on Feb. 16th. Wright, 24, plays Shuri, in the movie, the sister of the King and the “Smartest Person in the World.”The movie features T’Challa, played by actor Chadwick Boseman, who return home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king, and as Black Panther, gets tested when he’s drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people.“As far as the technologically-advanced side, in our mind, and in our incarnation, Shuri is the head of the Wakanda Design Group,” Black Panther Producer Moore told the Rant recently. “She’s the smartest person in the world, smarter than Tony Stark but she’s a sixteen-year-old girl which we thought was really interesting. Again, black faces in positions of power or positions of technological know-how, that’s a rarity. So it’s something that’s a big part of the film.”Shuri, the princess of Wakanda, was introduced in May 2005 in Marvel Comics’ Black Panther #2. However, four years later, she went on to assume the mantle of Black Panther in her own right after T’Challa was attacked by the Cabal and left in a comatose state. Given that the film’s teaser trailer shows T’Challa and Shuri standing in front of a pair of near-identical Black Panther costumes, some have speculated that perhaps she’ll follow in the footsteps of her comic-book-counterpart and suit up, herself.Guyana bornWright was born in Georgetown, Guyana and moved with her family at age 7 to London. Her interest in acting came when she saw ‘Akeelah and the Bee’ and found the lead character to be a positive role model. Determined to act, she sent emails to different agents about her acting experience until she was picked for small parts. She started out staring in ‘My Brother the Devil’ in 2012, where she was recognized by Screen International as one of its 2012 Stars of Tomorrow. Michael Caton-Jones then cast her in ‘Urban Hymn,’ in 2016, which garnered her attention and Wright was soon cast in the film adaptation of the novel ‘Ready Player One,’ as Reb.Soon, after, she was added to ‘Black Panther’ as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Award for most promising newcomerWright has received a nomination for a British Independent Film Award for Most Promising Newcomer.Black Panther is directed by Ryan Coogler and also stars: Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Guira, Letitia Wright, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Martin Freeman, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis, and Angela Bassett. (NewsAmericasNow)last_img read more
