The announcement, made by Prime Minister Scott Morrison in Suva on Friday morning, will see at least two NRL Telstra Premiership teams play an official trial fixture within the region in 2020, 2021 and 2022.Players and coaches will be in-country for a number of days prior to each of the fixtures to prepare and train, as well as participate in NRL and Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) programs targeted towards promoting social inclusion, participation, equality and health and wellbeing.The Australian Government have also included funding support for an elite-level rugby league team in Fiji to compete in the NSWRL Intrust Super Premiership.Minister for Foreign Affairs Marise Payne said sport has been a longstanding element of Australia’s engagement in the Pacific.”These announcements are part of the Australian Government’s commitment to the Australia-Pacific Sports Linkages Program which will deliver $40 million in grants over five years to support the development of sport throughout the Pacific,” Minister Payne said.”Sport has been a longstanding element of our engagement in the Pacific. This new program recognises the role and reach of sport as a major connection between Pacific and Australian people and communities.”NSWRL General Manager of Football Barrie-Jon Mather said the decision was a great vote of confidence in the game’s future in the Pacific and their hopes to play second tier Rugby League. “The announcement of support by the Australian Government substantially assists the bid team, led by Petero Civoniceva, and puts them a step closer to realising their dream of having a Fijian team play in our elite competition,” Mather said.Minister for Sport Bridget McKenzie said the announcement recognises the power of sport to bring people and communities together to build stronger ties.”Rugby League is incredibly popular in the Pacific Islands and if we can translate that into greater grassroots participation, we know that it will lead to more active and healthier participants,” Minister McKenzie said.”Investment in NRL programs such as this in the Pacific is helping to promote healthier communities. We know that children who grow up playing sport are 10 per cent more likely to remain active as adults and fitter children are more likely to achieve better academic results.”The NRL Head of Government and Community Relations, Jaymes Boland-Rudder, said the announcement was a fantastic endorsement of the positive impact Rugby League has both on and off the field throughout the Pacific.”We thank the Prime Minister, and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, for generously supporting and raising the profile of the lasting impact Rugby League is making for women, children and men throughout the Pacific,” Boland-Rudder said.”The NRL trial matches, alongside the assistance provided towards funding the proposed Fijian-based team in the NSWRL Intrust Super Premiership, will have a profound impact in inspiring our proud and passionate Pacific neighbours and their communities.”The NRL will work directly with NRL Clubs before confirming which teams will participate in the Pacific trials at a later date.

Already in recent days this newspaper pointed to the advanced negotiations between Espanyol and Benfica by Raúl de Tomás, although finally, and according to the Portuguese press (SIC Portugal advanced the news), the forward will not end up at the club as a loan but on property at a rate of 20 million euros plus 2.5 in variables. A real bombshell of the winter market that will help the Spanish to get out of his battered situation in The league, with just 11 points and the bottom of the championship. Tomás has always been a desire of Espanyol, although this summer it was impossible to undertake his signing as it was transferred to Benfica for 20 million euros. Five months later, the forward has not had continuity and the Portuguese club is willing to recover the investment. At 25 years old and with projection ahead, the player fits into the profile of signings of the parakeet club with Chen Yansheng in command, as in summer it happened with young people Fernando Calero Y Matías Vargas. With From Thomas, yes, the club will launch the house through the confirmation window taking into account that it would become the most expensive signing in history, exceeding the 10.5 that were paid by Vargas this summer.The forward would reinforce a decimated attack in LaLiga. Espanyol have only scored 14 goals in 19 games and his top scorers are Bernardo Espinosa, Wu Lei, Sergi Darder Y Marc Roca With three goals. If the arrival of De Tomás is official, Abelardo Fernández wins an immediate performance forward to get out of the delicate situation that the blue and white team is going through.According SIC Portugal, Espanyol would only get 80% of the pass for these 20 million and the 2.5 variables would be paid in case the player played ten games by June 30 (one million euros), Espanyol was saved (another million) and De Tomás scored five goals (500,000 euros). It is unknown if these clauses concern only LaLiga or all competitions. 9

Álvaro Carillo (Murcia, 2002) is one of the great promises that Real Madrid currently has in his academy. He is a central defender, plays for Juvenil B and played in the last U-17 World Cup with Spain. He is a modern defender, who adapts to the conditions that Real Madrid usually requires: He is quick to cross and is measured in the race with almost any striker. Some fundamental virtues in a style of play like Real Madrid, with the defense always very advanced.To these conditions he adds a magnificent ball handling and good game vision. He likes to go out with the ball under control, either long, short or even cheering with conductions to overcome pressure lines and join the attack. Its good long displacement makes it unpredictable, because it has the capacity to make measured game changes. Furthermore, it is powerful in aerial play. Carrillo took his first football steps at Barnes, a team from his native Murcia. Before, his brother (seven years older) had given him his first lessons with the ball, even putting him as a goalkeeper in the free time that both brothers spent playing ball. He entered the Barnes with only five years (2007) and was until 2014, when Murcia’s interest awoke. It only lasted one season (2014-15). It was enough for Real Madrid to notice him and incorporate him into his academy. His competitive nature (he always comments that as a child he cried every time he lost to any sport) made him fit perfectly into the white philosophy. Also, He is driven by the desire to fulfill a dream, to follow in the footsteps of Sergio Ramos, his great childhood idol.When he was just six years old, an Argentine coach assured him that one day, in the distant future, he would become a professional soccer player. That prediction of that technician is getting closer to becoming reality. That future no longer seems so distant …

“The Government must assume responsibility for not closing earlier”And it is that, as the mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, and the current director of public health in Liverpool, Matthew Ashton, as ex, John Ashton, Rotheram does not hesitate to re-qualify as a tremendous “mistake” allowing the journey of the red and white fans to the town on March 11 (three days later in Spain a state of alarm would be declared). “Dmust be analyzed, and needs the government to assume some responsibility for not closing earlier“the mayor settled on this party, which will continue to kick. 43 days after the game continues the controversy around Liverpool-Atlético second round of the Champions League. The authorities have placed the magnifying glass on it and link it to the increase in cases of coronavirus in the town. Mayor Steve Rotheram, who already criticized him in his day, is now calling for an independent investigation to establish a possible connection to an increase in cases of the disease in Liverpool since then. “If people have contracted coronavirus as a direct result of a sporting event we believe that shouldn’t have taken place, well that’s outrageous“he stated on the BBC. “We have seen an increase in the infection curve, and that resulted in 1,200 people in Liverpool contracting COVID-19“he counted. “That needs to be investigated to find out if some of those infections are directly due to Atlético fans. There were hot coronavirus cities, and Madrid was one of them,” he said. “They were not allowed to congregate in their own country, but 3,000 of those fans came to ours. and they could possibly have spread the coronavirus, “he argued as well.

New challenges in his career that he faces with discipline from confinement to continue growing. This course still has challenges ahead. “Now I have to come back stronger than ever,” he admits. Hunger is not lacking. The same that he has shown throughout his career and that helped Levante to opt for him. A tonic in his career. What is evident is that, at the age of 24, he has not yet reached a ceiling. From Macedonia, passing through Denmark, Sweden and Hungary, until reaching Spain. There are different ways to reach the elite. In most cases, the large quarries dominate the large number of footballers who reach the top. But, obviously, it is not the only way. This is the case of Enis Bardhi, Levante midfielder, who came to LaLiga on side B of football.The Macedonian path began in his hometown of Skopje. There he began to stand out in the ranks of the FK Shkupi since Bedri Saliu, his discoverer, took his eye at six years old. From then until 15 He burned stages until Macedonian grassroots football became too small for him to materialize his dreams. The small midfielder wanted to try new challenges to achieve professional football. More specifically, one of the great leagues on the continent.Player-supplied image. ‘); Return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Enis Bardhi during his last years in Macedonia, at 15 years old.Image provided by the player. With Macedonia at the time outside the European Union, his first destination away from home was the Bronby quarry, one of the strong teams in Denmark, to join the U19 team in 2013. However, it only lasted a few months and in November of that same year he signed for the Prespa Birlik of the Swedish Third Division.. Bardhi left training football behind to venture into the catacombs of professionalism.They were difficult times. Being one of the youngest members of the squad, he played friendlies and little else until they gave him the opportunity. He did not waste it and showed what pasta it is made of. Five goals in ten games earned him the Hungarian Újpest bet on signing his first professional contract. He always believed in his chances of getting there, although it is true that Hungary was the boost his career needed. A stroke of luck sought since leaving home.Its trajectory went from less to more. In its first year, 2014-15, with the ’29’ on his back, appeared timidly in the team but already showing signs of his potential. That year Hungarian Super Cup champions were proclaimed. In May he debuted with the absolute team of his country. The decision seemed to have been the correct one.The second season he accumulated gallons and, as he was developing physically, he was gaining prominence in the team; sharing costumes, among others, with Kylian Hazard, the youngest brother in the series. To the point that the following year he inherited the ‘7’ from the Belgian, who went on to wear the ’10’, and it definitely exploded in the OTP Bank Liga.That campaign, his last in Hungary, the Macedonian signed 12 goals in 29 days, being the third top scorer in the competition despite his status as a midfielder, surpassed only by Marton Eppel (16) and Stefan Scepovic (13), ex of Sporting de Gijón. His next step, and the window to the world, the European U21.Loaded with confidence after his great year at Újpest, and after a great qualifying phrase, Bardhi was preparing to demonstrate his worth among the best projects in Europe. However, Levante had already done their homework. However, “He bet on Levante and rejected other teams just after the European, some from Spain.” Girona or Getafe, without going any further, tested him. But Bardhi, a follower of Spanish football since he was a child, was dazzled by Levante’s proposal, which swept away that season in the Second Division. Her other two suitors also rose, but with less force. That, and the confidence transmitted from the club, were the triggers for his arrival in Valencia.“We saw impressive technical conditions at Bardhi. He could play in two or three positions. He was very hungry and personally we liked the way he was. We decided to bet on it“remarks the Segovian. The bet was decided: 1.5 million by a complete stranger to the general public. Its impact in Spain, immediate.Already in the preseason he surprised with three goals from set pieces in three attempts, specialty brand of the house. Doubts were soon dispelled, he promised high. A few weeks later in Orriols, and after the departure of Ruben GarciaThey did not hesitate to offer him the ’10’ in a gesture of confidence. He answered. His first year in LaLiga was spectacular in numbers, although intermittent in terms of his level of play.. There was the margin for growth in a technically brilliant player and generous in effort, but somewhat anarchic in his movements on the field. The leap in quality of Spanish football was a reality. He, precisely, chose him to follow his progression, aware that the characteristics of the championship fit his style of play.He signed nine goals, five of them on set pieces, in 1580 minutes. Without a doubt, one of the revelations of the championship. In a few months, his name, and his beating, were already known in the country. Currently he has six goals missing, the last against Getafe in October 2018. It has already rained since then.“After the first year, it has grown a lot. It’s not just a stopped ball. It has more rhythm and speed. Has taken a step forward“, reflects Carmelo. And, despite the fact that his goalscoring numbers have declined, his influence on the team is unquestionable and has grown in other aspects. Levante shielded its pearl until 2022, with the option of two more years, and clause of 50 million euros.Since the arrival of Paco López he has won in hierarchy and in soccer. He is a more complete player. Last year he only signed three goals, but one of them of vital importance: that of staying against Girona in Montilivi. Somewhat for the elect.This season he continues his descent, both in Levante and in his team, where each call is more influential in the group. With Macedonia he was on the verge of epic, competing to qualify for the next Eurocup. Something that would be historic in your country. Also in Levante. After three seasons at the club, is one goal away from matching Arouna Koné as the club’s fifth top scorer in Primera. At the moment he has two goals this season, in addition to three assists.@ enisbardhi10 ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Enis Bardhi works on her set-up during confinement.@ enisbardhi10 “A club like Levante has logical limitations when it comes to going for players. We looked at the teams that participated in the U21 classification phase, not the important ones. There we find the filter” Carmelo del Pozo account, technical secretary at the time and who directly entered into talks with him and his representative to prepare the signing, for ACE.“When he went to the final phase, where he played a great role, we had already talked to him. There other clubs appeared, but he respected that we had been the first“, account of the Well. In that European, Bardhi broke it and stood out with goals against Serbia and Portugal, showing his privileged hitting. The world of soccer fixed its eyes on the Balkan midfielder who shone with his own light in the midfield of Macedonia.
