Guyana’s exceptional performances

first_imgDear Editor,Guyana’s exceptional performances and achievements at the recently held Carifta Games in Curacao must be lauded; the team of young athletes has made us proud.Likewise, Government must be commended for its unprecedented initiative of providing scholarships for the successful Carifta Games team. This augurs well for the future, and can serve as an inspiration for up-and-coming athletes.It is hoped that these young people would not squander this opportunity, but would make full use of the scholarships while at the same time enhancing and furthering their athletic abilities.Maybe someday in the not-too-distant future these athletes would be in the Guyana contingent to a Commonwealth Games meet, or ultimately the Olympics. Congratulations, and continued successes to the Carifta team and all who worked to ensure success.It is important for all to remember that this is not the end, but is rather just the beginning.Sincerely,Shamshun Mohamedlast_img read more

US coach Jurgen Klinsmann fired on heels of blowout loss in Costa

first_imgRelated posts:Costa Rica humiliates the United States 4-0 in World Cup qualifier Costa Rica heads into must-win game against United States Costa Rica scores key victory over Trinidad & Tobago in World Cup Qualifying Costa Rica seeking revenge against the United States Former German international striker Jurgen Klinsmann was fired Monday as head coach of the U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team after losing two straight 2018 World Cup qualifying matches, including last week’s 4-0 blowout to Costa Rica.U.S. Soccer Federation president Sunil Gulati announced the firing without naming a replacement. The United States does not face another World Cup qualifier until March.“Today we made the difficult decision of parting ways with Jurgen Klinsmann,” Gulati said in a statement. “We want to thank Jurgen for his hard work and commitment during these last five years. He took pride in having the responsibility of steering the program and there were considerable achievements along the way.”Klinsmann went 55-27 with 16 drawn in a coaching tenure that began on July 29, 2011, when Gulati named him to replace the fired Bob Bradley on a team where Bradley’s son Michael was a star midfielder.Klinsmann, 52, guided the U.S. on a team record 12-match win streak in 2013 and his 16 triumphs and .761 win percentage that year set U.S. marks. But the Yanks stumbled to fourth in the 2015 Gold Cup, also losing a playoff to Mexico for the Confederations Cup.Earlier this month, the U.S. squad stumbled badly in opening the final round of North American (CONCACAF) qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, falling 2-1 at home to arch-rival Mexico and then 4-0 at Costa Rica.Bruce Arena, a five-time Major League Soccer champion coach now with the Los Angeles Galaxy, is thought to be a prime candidate to replace Klinsmann. The 65-year-old American coached the U.S. team to the 2002 World Cup quarter-finals and guided a 2006 US lineup that exited in the group stages.Under Klinsmann in 2014, the U.S. matched their 2010 World Cup showing by reaching the last 16.
