He made his national senior team debut in 2008 against El Salvador and most recently played in the 2015 Copa America, where he starred against Lionel Messi and Argentina and the 2015 Gold Cup, helping Jamaica to a historic second-place finish behind Mexico.He began his professional career in 2007 at Harbour View FC and moved after three seasons to his native parish club Village United, then playing the local top-flight. The defender then moved to Fort Lauderdale Strikers, where he played for two years.”I’m very happy to be cheered on by Dark Clouds and their fans. I have always felt (from) playing here that Minnesota fans are the best in the League and I can’t wait to be on the right side of their cheers. It’s an honour to be joining a team that has so many great players and great coaches. It’s going to be a great team to be a part of,” Laing told NASL.com.last_img read more

Reynolds defends World Cup selection

first_imgJamaica senior netball team coach, Minneth Reynolds, said they selected the 12 best available players for the Netball World Cup, which ended in Sydney on Sunday.Jamaica went into the tournament confident of coming away with the top prize, but walked away empty-handed, finishing fourth.As a result, the Jill McIntosh-led coaching staff was heavily criticised not only for their performance, but for not taking the best players to represent the country.”This is certainly one of the best Jamaica teams we have taken to a championship. We had some very good games and some not-so-good games and that cost us not to medal,” Reynolds said.”We took 12 girls, and at any given time, any of those 12 girls could be out there. It’s what we had working with, and I think those 12 girls gave a good account of themselves,” she said.Some observers, including top local netball coach, Winston Nevers, believed some of the country’s best players were left behind. He also argued that the most reliable players were overworked.”Our selection is about people who want who they want and not the best person,” he told The Gleaner. “I personally would not blame Jill … she only had three months, we should have given her three years because Jill would go out in the areas and select the players that she wants.”In such a short period, she had to work with what she saw. The coaches that are there should have selected good players for Jill to work with,” he stressed.Absent playersHe noted that the absence of players Malaysia Kelly, Shamara Sterling and Shatel Slater was greatly felt, as the bench lacked depth.”Those people are more than six feet who can play in mid-court. They were all in the programme, so somebody needs to come and tell us why those players were left out.”We didn’t have a bench and they had to do a lot of work in the mid-court, so the mid-court was overworked. But we didn’t select the right persons and we are blaming Jill, and I think coaches are to be blamed.”Reynolds noted their disappointment.”We used all 12 girls in all of our games, but we had some tough games that we had to use our strongest team, so it’s not that some players were overplayed and some were underplayed,” she explained.”If we had won a medal at the championships, there would be no question about the 12 we took. We are disappointed that we did not get a medal, but we will not dwell on what we did not get, but what we learnt,” she noted.last_img read more

Presidential contender faces 19-year FIFA ban

first_imgSEOUL, South Korea (AP):FIFA presidential contender Chung Mong-joon said yesterday than he is facing a 19-year suspension by the ethics committee of the world football body for alleged ethics breaches surrounding South Korea’s failed bid for the 2022 World Cup and also for openly criticising the committee.The South Korean billionaire denied any wrongdoing and accused the committee of acting as a “hit man” of current FIFA President Sepp Blatter, who Chung says is attempting to damage his candidacy.”The true danger is that they won’t stop at sabotaging only my candidacy, but also destructing FIFA’s presidential election and FIFA itself,” the former FIFA vice-president said in a news conference in Seoul.Chung said the ethics committee is planning to hit him soon with a 15-year suspension for proposing, in letters to members of FIFA’s executive committee, a $777 million fund to finance football development projects around the world.Chung said his proposals were in line with FIFA’s rules. He said FIFA had already investigated the issue in 2010 and determined the matter as closed, but reopened the case after he declared his presidential candidacy in August.last_img read more
