But the 26-year-old striker has made a strong recovery and handed Brazil a pre-World Cup boost when he came off the bench to replace Fernandinho for the second half at Anfield.And Neymar showed no signs of rust as he got on the scoresheet in the 68th minute with a sublime individual effort to put Brazil ahead.He needed just 23 minutes to prove how important he is, not only to Brazil’s hope of a sixth world title but also for the millions of fans who will watch the World Cup hoping the planet’s most expensive player can take a leading role.Receiving a pass from Philippe Coutinho, Neymar cut into the area, beating Sime Vrsaljko and Duje Caleta-Car with impressive close control and dribbling, before burying a shot into the roof of the goal from the edge of the six-yard area.Neymar ran behind the goal, in front of Anfield’s legendary Kop end, and punched the air in delight as he was mobbed by team-mates.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Brazil’s Neymar scored a superb goal on his return from injury against Croatia © AFP / Oli SCARFFLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Jun 3 – Neymar celebrated his eagerly anticipated return from injury with a superb goal for Brazil in their World Cup warm-up against Croatia on Sunday.Neymar had been sidelined for over three months after fracturing his foot while playing for Paris Saint-Germain against Marseille in Ligue 1 on February 25.

Clemens completed 36 passes, an Autzen Stadium record, with no interceptions as the Ducks (6-1, 1-1 Pac- 10) handed the Huskies (1-5, 0-3) their 11th consecutive loss against a conference opponent. Demetrius Williams had five catches for 92 yards, including a pair of Clemens’ scoring passes. @Roundup Score: Stanford 20, at Arizona 16 @Roundup Text: Trent Edwards threw two touchdown passes and Stanford took advantage of five Arizona turnovers to beat the Wildcats. It was the second consecutive Pac- 10 road victory for the Cardinal (3-2, 2-1), which beat Washington State last week. Stanford managed just 195 total yards, but the Wildcats’ tough defense was offset by Arizona’s offensive blunders. Arizona (1-5, 0-3) lost its fourth consecutive. Its only victory was against NCAA Division I-AA Northern Arizona. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Matt Moore passed for 196 yards despite three interceptions, and Oregon State’s defense forced five turnovers in a miserable performance by the Golden Bears (5-2, 2-2 Pacific-10 Conference), who lost their second consecutive after the school’s best start since 1996. The Beavers (4-2, 2-1) throttled Cal’s vaunted rushing attack and moved the ball easily themselves for most of the day yet turnovers, penalties and mistakes kept it close. BERKELEY — The scoreboard never reflected Oregon State’s domination, so coach Mike Riley couldn’t enjoy an impressive upset until California made its final mistakes. Yvenson Bernard rushed for a career-high 185 yards and the go- ahead touchdown with 6:41 to play, and Oregon State snapped No. 18 Cal’s 10-game home winning streak with a 23-20 victory on Saturday. “It was scary,’ said Riley, whose Beavers won at Cal for the second time in three seasons. “They were always in striking distance. … (But) our team never thought we couldn’t stop them, and that we couldn’t move the ball.’ With good reason. Bernard rushed 40 times and scored two touchdowns in the second half for the Beavers, whose 35-21 victory at Memorial Stadium in 2003 was the most recent win by a visitor. That Saturday, Oregon State harassed Aaron Rodgers into one of his worst games at Cal and it did the same to Joe Ayoob this time. The Beavers, who celebrated with their band and a large cheering contingent after the game, also snapped an eight-game losing streak against ranked teams. They outlasted the mistake-prone Bears, stopping three potential game-winning drives by Cal’s once-potent offense. “It’s been five years since we beat a ranked team,’ Oregon State linebacker Andy Darkins said. “We’re going to roll with this. … We felt the whole week that if we stop Cal’s run game and make Ayoob throw it, we could win.’ @Roundup Score: At No. 20 Oregon 45, Washington 21 @Roundup Text: Kellen Clemens threw for 425 yards and four touchdowns and No. 20 Oregon decisively defeated northwest rival Washington for the second consecutive year.

Businesses in Letterkenny have called on Irish Water to suspend works at the Lower Main Street as a number of job losses are threatened because of the disruption being caused.In a letter released through the Letterkenny Chamber, businesses say an alternative to the current works must be found.Businesses say they met with Irish Water and Donegal County Council officials to allay their fears but nothing was nothing to ease their worries. In recent weeks traffic in the area has been so bad that people have been voting with their feet and staying away from some parts of the town.Some businesses report a downturn of up to 30% in overall trade.A spokesman for the businesses said “Quite simply, the current works programme is unacceptable.”The following is the letter released this morning by the Letterkenny Chamber explaining the position of businesses. On 3rd December 2018, local businesses, supported by the Letterkenny Chamber of Commerce, engaged in discussions with Irish Water, Donegal County Council and the project contractor Cleantech. At that meeting, we sought clarification on the works and the schedule for same.On 21st February 2019, some 11 weeks prior to commencement of works, we made the following proposals to Irish Water:1. To put a left turn in place at the junction affected by the works. This would negate the need for a diversion and avoid additional congestion on Pearse road and Main Street;2. To ensure that the traffic management plan included full daytime cover on all necessary junctions on Pearse road, Main Street, and in the Old Town area and have provision to deal with unexpected spikes in traffic;3. To employ a works plan that allows for additional teams to carry out works in the evenings and at the weekends to shorten the length of the 21 week project considerably; 4. To carry out the daytime works on the dual carriageway from the Dry Arch roundabout to the Polestar roundabout at a different time to these works.In response, Irish Water stated that:• They would explore our proposals;• That a left turn was not an option;• That the Dry Arch to Polestar works would not have a significant impact on Letterkenny;• That they would take immediate action if any issues arose during the works.We again met with the contract parties on 11th April 2019 and we were disheartened to learn that no formal review of our proposals was carried out.We reiterated our concerns and told Irish Water and Donegal County Council that the current plan will cause severe traffic issues and lead to significant damage to business and loss of jobs. We again met on 2nd May 2019 and again asked them to take our proposals on board and implement them. It became obvious, however, after one week that the works were having a significant impact on Letterkenny.• We immediately contacted Irish Water and Donegal County Council to voice our concerns;• We then issued a letter on 24th May 2019 calling for the works to cease until an appropriate solution is found;• We contacted An Garda Síochana immediately and they offered to assist with traffic management and we are thankful for their ongoing commitment to provide necessary resources.At a meeting with Irish Water and Donegal County Council on Thursday 6th June, some two weeks after our letter request, we were informed that:• They were considering our proposals and would revert within a few days. This is despite the fact that we made the proposals 16 weeks prior to this meeting;• They believe traffic flow has improved – we have told them that this is because traffic numbers have decreased significantly.We note that as of today, 12th June 2019, neither Irish Water nor Donegal County Council have proposed any solutions and they have refused to suspend the works until one if found. At present:• Businesses, across Letterkenny, are suffering losses of up to 30%;• Businesses cannot sustain this level of loss and job losses are likely unless a solution is found;• We have proposed the only real solution to the issue and it has been ignored to date.We are once again calling on Irish Water, Donegal County Council and Cleantech to agree to:• Suspend the works with immediate effect;• Take the time needed to find an appropriate solution.The spokesman added “Finally, we would like to remind everyone that Letterkenny is open for business and your support is crucial. At peak times, allow a little extra time and please continue to support local business and jobs.”Letterkenny businesses call for roadworks to stop as jobs threatened was last modified: June 14th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:ChamberDelaysdonegalIrish Waterjobsletterkennyroadworks
An analysis has been carried out on a dead whale which was stranded outside Ramelton this week. Locals discovered the huge beached creature at Aughnish on Thursday.Many questions were raised over the species of the whale and the cause of death. The whale washed up on the shore near Ramelton. (North West Newspix)A representative of the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group has visited the site to carry out studies and take samples from the carcass.They determined that the whale was a male juvenile fin whale. The body measured 16ft 8inches in length, which shows that it is a very young animal.Some fin whales can life up to 140 years. “Fin Whales are second largest animal on the planet can reach lengths of 27m, and one of the fastest. Reaching speeds of 30 miles an hour,” said an update from the Donegal Irish Whale and Dolphin Group Facebook page.However, the cause of death is still unknown.The external analysis showed no sign of a cause of death. Scientific investigations are due to be carried out on samples from the whale to look at its genetic make-up and if any contaminants were present in the body.The Donegal IWDG spokesperson said: “Remember to report standings to the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group website. As well as sightings so we can better protect these beautiful creatures.”Studies carried out on stranded whale outside Ramelton was last modified: August 5th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:whale
