Baines: Rooney IS an England all-time great

admin No Comments

first_imgWayne Rooney will go down as one of England’s all-time greats, in the opinion of Leighton Baines.The 29-year-old will join an illustrious group of players to have represented the Three Lions on 100-or-more occasions should he face Slovenia in Saturday’s Euro 2016 qualifier.Rooney will become the ninth player to achieve the feat and, given his age, Peter Shilton’s record 125-cap haul does not look beyond reach.The England captain certainly looks set to break the scoring record as he is already just six goals shy of Sir Bobby Charlton’s record tally of 49.That success will ensure Rooney’s place in the record books and left-back Baines believes he deserves to be bracketed alongside his country’s greatest players.“He’s going to go down as one of the all-time greats for England,” the Everton and England full-back said.“If Wayne can keep fit, keep playing, he’s going to break more records. Sometimes it’s not until later on that people get the credit they deserve.“Wayne has been at the forefront of everything England have done since his involvement in the squads and has carried a lot of pressure.“Everyone will look back when he’s finished and has broken all the records and will acknowledge he has been one of the all-time greats for England. He doesn’t seem to change.”Rooney has been in the public consciousness ever since he was 16, when his moment of magic secured Everton victory against Arsenal in 2002.It did not take the forward long to move onto Manchester United, but the Goodison Park faithful now have a similar home-grown talent in the form of Ross Barkley.“We see it now at club level, he has a real influence at Everton,” Baines said of the 20-year-old. “He’s got tremendous ability.“I think Ross is still at a development stage. He’s really keen to improve, he’s looking to see what others are doing and add to his game. That’s half the battle.“He’s looking around and looking to improve all the time. The senior lads here and at Everton we’ll give little bits of advice when needed. He’s part of a group at England of exciting young players.”Those players have helped England move on from their embarrassing trip to Brazil, with Roy Hodgson’s men having won all four matches since their World Cup exit.The Three Lions defence came under particular scrutiny in the summer, but have responded fantastically and can make it a record-equalling six straight clean sheet against Slovenia.“We’ve spoken about it, we’re working on it as a team and in individual groups improving in all areas, really,” Baines said.“That’s one of the areas where we’ve seen significant improvements. Clean sheets give you an opportunity to win games. We’ll continue to work on. We want to score a few goals, too.”England’s strength in depth at full-back certainly seems to be helping England, with Baines joined in this squad by fellow left-backs Luke Shaw and Kieran Gibbs.Their rise has helped make up for Ashley Cole’s international retirement, while the likes of Ryan Bertrand and Danny Rose are pushing for a chance.“Competition-wise, it’s strong as it’s ever been,” Baines said. “Myself, Luke and Kieran in the squad now.“Danny was in the squad not too long ago. There’s a lot of really good players fighting for one position. And it’s the same at right-back with Nathaniel (Clyne) and Calum (Chambers) both doing really well.“Jonno (Glen Johnson) has been great for England over the years and is still a top player so there is a lot of competition and I would imagine nice problems for the manager.”last_img read more

History chasing Kipchoge heads to Vienna

PHOTO/Ineos 1:59/TwitterNAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 7 – Eliud Kipchoge boards a private jet to Vienna, Austria on Monday night, the weight of history tagged on his shoulder, but a load he is not afraid to carry or sustain the pressure that comes with the expectations from his fans all over the world.Between this Saturday and Monday, Kipchoge will attempt to become the first man to run a marathon under two hours when he illuminates as the centre of the Ineos 1:59 challenge, making an attempt at breaking the barrier for the second time. “I think we are ready. We have trained well and prepared him to the best of our abilities. Now, it is up to the athlete,” his coach Patrick Sang told Capital Sport.Kipchoge has been training at his Global Sports Communication camp in Kaptagat for the last few months, getting his mind ready to write history, pushed on by his own philosophical line that ‘no human is limited’.“It is a mixture of everything; we are excited, we are nervous… and it is now just a matter of waiting for the event and we see what comes of it. We are hopeful,” Sang further noted.Eliud Kipchoge and his coach Patrick Sang during the launch of the Ineos 1:59 challenge in London. PHOTO/Ineos 1:59/TwitterPreviously, the window of the race had been set for between October 12 and 20, but now the same has been squeezed down to three days and a decision will be reached on the exact day by latest Wednesday evening depending on the weather conditions.The preferred date for the historic race is Saturday October 12.Once the green light is given the three-day countdown begins and Kipchoge will switch his nutrition and begin carb-loading. Carb loading is a strategy used by endurance athletes to maximise the storage of glycogen in the muscles and liver.“The unique nature of this extraordinary event means we are not in a position where we can confirm the date or the start time of the Challenge until we can be absolutely certain the weather conditions are suitable,”Vienna here we come! pic.twitter.com/OxV4LPJ4QO— Eliud Kipchoge (@EliudKipchoge) October 7, 2019“We have got a world-class team of meteorological experts working on this alongside the Austrian Meteorological Office to inform the Performance team and enable the decision process, and in turn let fans around the world set their alarm clocks and be part of the INEOS 1:59 Challenge,” Robby Ketchell who is leading the meteorological team told the race’s official website.The optimum weather conditions for the INEOS 1:59 Challenge are a temperature between 7 and 14 degrees Celsius, humidity below 80 per cent, dry conditions and without too much wind.Eliud Kipchoge during one of his training sessions in Kaptagat ahead of the Ineos 1:59. PHOTO/Ineos 1:59/TwitterOnce the date is set, the exact start time for the INEOS 1:59 Challenge will be confirmed the day before. The start time will be between 5am – 9am local time (6am-10am EAT)The decision for the optimal start time will take into account various factors including weather, nutrition and Kipchoge’s circadian rhythm.Kipchoge will undertake this challenge with a clearer mind and by his own admission, he finds himself better prepared than he was in 2017 when he took part in the Breaking Two project by his apparel sponsors Nike.“This time I have a stronger mentality and more experience because I know what to do for the race,” Kipchoge said in a past interview.Eliud Kipchoge packing his bags ahead of the trip to Vienna, Austria for the Ineos 1:59. PHOTO/Ineos 1:59/TwitterIn the 2017 race that went down at the Monza Formula One track in Italy, Kipchoge, the current world record holder came 26 seconds close to achieving the target.A total of 41 pace setters drawn from around the world, but most are from Kipchoge’s training group in Kaptagat. The pacers already had their reconnaissance on the Vienna course where they rehearsed their exact movements, timings and interchange formations.This is to ensure that Kipchoge runs at a requisite and steady pace throughout the race to achieve the desired 1:59 timing.0Shares0000(Visited 368 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

However, Shels fell to a 4-1 defeat away to First Division champions Wexford – and UCD defeated Cabinteely 1-0 to secure that play-off position.Harps finish out their campaign against Wexford Youths next weekend.While UCD face Waterford before the two sides clash over two legs for an opportunity to play Premier Division football next season.OFFICIAL: FINN HARPS DRAW WITH ATHLONE – AND WILL FACE UCD IN PLAY-OFFS was last modified: October 9th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:newsSportlast_img read more
