first_imgNext stop, FIFA: The team in VietnamWhen the Indian football team wins its first trophy in 28 years, there’s got to be some special karma working in its favour. Nonsense, says the team’s new coach, it’s nothing but an old-fashioned dose of “nastiness”.The Indian under-23 team won the LG Cup,Next stop, FIFA: The team in VietnamWhen the Indian football team wins its first trophy in 28 years, there’s got to be some special karma working in its favour. Nonsense, says the team’s new coach, it’s nothing but an old-fashioned dose of “nastiness”.The Indian under-23 team won the LG Cup in Vietnam on August 11, beating Singapore, three-time champion Indonesian club Petrokimia FC and the Vietnamese under-23 and senior squads.In the final, India trailed Vietnam 0-2 before captain Bhaichung Bhutia brought his side back with two goals and sub Abhishek Yadav took the score to 3-2 minutes from extra-time. That’s “nastiness”, Stephen Constantine-style.”We scored three times after 80 minutes to win matches. My boys will not give in without a fight,” said the Englishman.It was the first significant trophy for an Indian team since it shared the Asian Youth Championship with Iran in 1974.What made it better was that every national team in the tournament was ranked higher than the Indians on the FIFA ratings, where India stands at 124.The team earned $16,000 (Rs 7.7 lakh) for its efforts and hopefully a little more respect among its peers in Asia.last_img read more

Salah reveals the secrets to his outstanding form

first_imgLiverpool’s Mohamed Salah has shared that good nutrition and an “easy life” are the key elements behind his breakthrough seasonThe Egypt international was at his best, once more, for Liverpool as they defeated his former club AS Roma 5-2 at Anfield on Tuesday night for the first leg of their semi-final tie in the Champions League, with Salah bagging a brace of goals and assists.But the 25-year-old has now revealed how that good nutrition and his prior footballing experiences have played a key role in his life.“Nutrition is so important, it’s part of the game,” Salah told CNN (via Daily Mail).“It has helped with my recovery, allowed me to sleep better and helped my body adapt quickly.“My nutritionist says that because I don’t have any fat on my body, I can eat what I want. I also don’t drink so it’s fine.“When I go back to Egypt, I call my friend from the airport to buy kushari for us to eat in the car. I pull my hoodie over my head, jump into the car and then I’m eating it straight away.”divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…The kushari dish is made of rice, macaroni, and lentils, but it doesn’t appear to have had any negative effect on Salah with the Egyptian having now scored a total of 43 goals this season.But Salah, who has now scored more goals than any other player in Europe this season, insists that he has an “easy life”.“If you talk only about Egypt, we are 100 million,’ he continued. ‘I have to be natural and not doing anything fake, not lying on social media, in interviews and life.“This is my life, it’s an easy life. It’s not complicated. I have nothing much to do during the day but it’s a responsibility in the end.“You have to take it easy and carry on. I’m not nervous about that,’ he adds. ‘It’s also a little bit difficult because you don’t have the freedom to make mistakes or something wrong.“That’s pressure but when you’ve been under pressure for many years you can deal with it. It’s fine.’last_img read more

5 smart resolutions for the New Year

first_img1. Save more, spend less (and pay bills on time) A no-brainer really, but easy to say and tough to do. Check your past spends and work out how much you want to save each month. Allocate part of your income automatically so you’re not tempted to use the money elsewhere. This could be in an auto-sweep fixed deposit, a SIP in a mutual fund or a transfer to another bank account. Use a money management app to track your spends, create a budget and get reminders to make your bill payments on time. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf2. Clear high-interest debtDo you have several credit cards that are maxed out to the available credit limit, and are you paying only the minimum due each month? If so, you are headed for financial disaster. If you have multiple credit cards, give them up and keep a maximum of two, with the highest credit limit. Avoid any fresh spends on your cards till dues are cleared. List all your debts, from highest to lowest, and clear them in that order.3. Health is wealth – insure it Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveBeing healthy and fit is the best gift to yourself and your family and dependents. Cut down on wasteful spending and eating/drinking, make actual use of that gym membership, get a complete health check-up done and make it a yearly habit.Set aside money each month for an emergency fund worth 6-8 months of living expenses to see you and family through any medical emergency. Regardless of whether you are single or have a family, get a life and health insurance policy so that you/your next of kin don’t suffer financially if something happens to you. 4. Documentation and nominationSounds boring, but it is a good idea to ensure your spouse/family is aware of your finances – not just investments and insurance, but also debts. Likewise, while opening a bank/demat/mutual fund account, not many pay attention to adding a nominee – or in case of a life insurance policy, updating beneficiary from parents to spouse. Documentation can be further split into financial/debt, health/life and legal (if applicable). Ensure it is easily accessible to next of kin in case something happens to you, so they are spared the running around and unnecessary paperwork.5. Remember to have funWorking 9 to 6 daily, five (or six) days a week can take a toll of your health and personal life. Make a conscious effort to set aside time for your family and friends. Plan mini-breaks every quarter and a full-fledged vacation once a year.Do something that makes you happy, take up a new hobby, travel somewhere you’ve never been before – all these will help you refocus and realign your goals and priorities.ianslast_img read more
