Nigerian Players should be made to grow through the ranks – Nwosu

first_imgFormer Green Eagles star, Henry Nwosu has stated that players should be made to grow through the ranks in the national team when they emerge from age-grade competitions rather than been thrown straight into the senior national team. Nwosu speaking in a chat with brila.net said the process of growing through the ranks will allow such players the right level of maturity and development while recalling how tough it was to convince a former junior team player Femi Opabunmi exactly 18 years ago that he will start against the Three Lions of England after been drafted into the Super Eagles team at the 2002 FIFA World Cup in South Korea and Japan.Advertisement Promoted ContentTop 10 Most Romantic Nations In The WorldTop 10 Most Iconic Characters On TVPlaying Games For Hours Can Do This To Your Body6 Natural History Museums That Have World’s Greatest Collections7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemThe 10 Best Secondary Education Systems In The WorldTop 10 Enemies Turned Friends in TVThe Highest Paid Football Players In The World5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeThe Highest Paid Football Players In The World Loading… read also:Henry Nwosu: Eagles can hurt Crocodiles in Maseru“As a coach, I will always take it easy with any player that is coming from the underage team because it is not easy for you to play at the underage side and transform like that to the Super Eagles. It is not easy, it takes good players that are very exposed like us. I was a ball boy player at the national stadium and played with young teams then I was the captain of the Junior Eagles you know so I grew through the ranks and the confidence grew with me but you know most of these players didn’t go through such advantage. We thank God he didn’t put us to shame, but it was tough convincing the young man on that day that he was to start the match. “ FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more

LA Dodgers will limit Carl Crawford’s exposure upon return

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodger left fielders are hitting .235 without Crawford. Howie Kendrick — Crawford’s surrogate on on the All-Star ballot — has struggled at the plate, batting .159, and wasn’t in the starting lineup Tuesday.To make room for Crawford, the Dodgers optioned Zach Lee to Triple-A Oklahoma City. The pitcher didn’t appear in a game during his three days in the majors.Crawford made three rehab appearances with Oklahoma City and Single-A Rancho Cucamonga, combining to hit .364 (4 for 11) with two doubles and three RBI. His last game was Sunday with the Quakes.Kazmir good to goScott Kazmir didn’t throw a bullpen session after leaving his last start with a sore left thumb Friday in Denver. The left-hander will start today’s game against the Marlins anyway. Kazmir is 1-1 with a 6.63 earned-run average in four starts this season and Roberts suggested that the injury played a part in the results.“Kaz is a pro,” Roberts said. “He doesn’t want to use it as an excuse. When you have the wrist/thumb thing it’s kind of hard for him to get on top of the baseball. I think he was getting a little outside and under it. Now, even just watching him play catch he was getting the extension he needed. The ball was coming out well. I think he’ll be fine.”Kazmir has faced the Marlins only once in the last seven years. For what it’s worth, he didn’t allow a run in that game on August 4, 2013, when he was pitching for the Cleveland Indians.Left-hander Justin Nicolino is being summoned from Triple-A to start for the Marlins to make be his 2016 debut. In 12 games last year, Nicolino went 5-4 with a 4.01 earned-run average, including a June 26 start at Dodger Stadium in which Nicolino allowed five runs in four innings.The Marlins optioned right-hander Jarred Cosart, who had been scheduled to start, to Triple-A New Orleans.AlsoHyun-Jin Ryu and Brandon McCarthy threw bullpen sessions Tuesday. Ryu is back to throwing bullpen sessions every fifth day, Roberts said, following a brief setback in his shoulder labrum rehab when he suffered a groin injury. … McCarthy threw for about 20 minutes at Dodger Stadium. The right-hander underwent Tommy John surgery almost one year ago, on April 30, 2015. … Roberts might shuffle the rotation when the Dodgers get two off-days in the same week next Monday and Thursday. “We’re talking about kind of moving some things around maybe, but right now we’re going to keep things as is,” Roberts said. “With Ross (Stripling), and just kind of with his usage, that’s something still in his infancy.” … Stripling is on an innings limit this season that the Dodgers haven’t disclosed. Four starts into the season, the rookie right-hander has a 3.22 earned-run average and has accrued 22 1/3 innings.center_img Carl Crawford was activated from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday. His first game since April 9 lasted more than seven innings, which should come as a mild surprise.Crawford played five games at the beginning of the season before he was sidelined with a sore lower back. He never played a full nine innings, and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts hinted Tuesday that will continue.“We’ve seen there’s a propensity to get injured,” Roberts said of Crawford, who missed 75 games last year recovering from a strained oblique. “Even in the beginning of the season you saw I took him out even to get him off his feet. The idea of running him out there until he breaks is not something I believe in. I just try to kind of conserve as much as possible and just use that depth.”Roberts said that “optimally” Crawford would play “three, maybe four times a week.”last_img read more
