Football: Neymar tasked with delivering Brazil’s elusive gold

admin no comments

first_imgRio de Janeiro, Brazil | AFP |Brazil has barely got over its World Cup disaster and now it is counting on Barcelona star Neymar to finally deliver a treasured first football Olympic gold medal.Olympic gold is the only international title to elude Brazil in an illustrious history that has seen A Selecao win five World Cups.And Brazilian football is in desperate need of a pick-me-up after the humiliating 7-1 semi-final defeat to Germany at their own World Cup two years ago and a group stage exit at the Copa America Centenario in June.Golden boy Neymar has been untarnished by the failures.Two broken vertebrae in his back suffered near the end of a quarter-final win over Colombia left Brazil without their talisman against the Germans two years ago.And as part of an agreement between Barcelona and the Brazilian federation, Neymar skipped the Copa America — which sealed Dunga’s fate as Brazil coach for the second time — to ensure he is fresh for the Olympics.Starlets in supportRogerio Micale will take charge after leading Brazil to the under-20 World Cup final last year. Like the fans he also expects Neymar to deliver.He said: “I want to be dependent on Neymar. What coach in the world would not want a Neymar in their team?“Neymar has exceeded my expectations. He is appreciated, he’s a good guy with a huge heart especially around the younger players.“He has shown that he is more than just a great player — he’s a great man admired by everybody.”Neymar was part of the Brazil side shocked by Mexico in the final of the 2012 Olympics, whilst even the likes of Ronaldo and Ronaldinho have come up short when charged with delivering gold.However, Brazil are strong favourites to end their wait as on top of home advantage, they also possess by far the strongest squad on paper. Each team is restricted to just three players over the age of 23 in their 18-man squads.Wonder kids Gabriel Barbosa and Gabriel Jesus, both tipped to make big money moves to Europe from Santos and Palmeiras respectively after the Games, will support Neymar in attack.Meanwhile, Paris Saint Germain defender Marquinhos and Neymar’s Barcelona teammate Rafinha are also among Micale’s squad.Brazil open their campaign against South Africa in Brasilia, one of six Olympic football host cities, before facing Iraq and Denmark in Group A.Their biggest threat is likely to come from eternal rivals Argentina.Atletico Madrid’s Angel Correa and Giovanni Simeone — son of Atletico boss Diego Simeone — formed a lethal partnership in scoring 13 goals to win the 2015 South American under-20 championships to qualify.They face Portugal in the match of the opening round at the Rio Olympic stadium on Thursday in a group also containing Honduras and Algeria.World champions Germany can call on the experience of the Bender twins Lars and Sven of Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund as two of their overage players.A return to Brazil holds particularly fond memories for Dortmund full-back Matthias Ginter, who was part of the German squad that won the World Cup two years ago.Ginter has shown his commitment to the cause by flying almost 20,000km in four days as he headed back from China with Dortmund on Friday before jetting off to Brazil.“I’m still young and you have to take the chances offered to you. The Olympics are special. We’re all motivated and want to reach the final in Rio,” said the 22-year-old.Germany start against 2012 gold medallists Mexico in Salvador before facing Fiji and South Korea in Group C.Group B appears the closest to call as Sweden, Colombia, Nigeria and Japan all start with realistic ambitions of reaching the quarter-finals.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Pastor Stuns Community with Mater Dei Prep Closure

admin no comments

first_imgBy John BurtonMIDDLETOWN – A startling announcement this week is marking the end of an era, as Mater Dei Prep High School announced its plans to shutter its doors in June.The Rev. Jeff Kegley, pastor of the St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Parish, posted a letter on the school’s website announcing its closure and referred all inquiries there.Mater Dei Prep, 538 Church St., in the township’s New Monmouth section, “has been running large financial deficits and enrollment numbers have not stabilized to the point of sufficiently supporting the school’s viability,” and it was his and the parish finance council’s hope that trend could be reversed. Kegley said in his announcement, however, the 2014-15 projected loss for the school is close to $1 million.“Our parish and diocesan assistance, fundraising and tuition can no longer meet the school’s financial obligation,” Kegley acknowledged.The school, which has been operating for 50 years and boasted the largest incoming freshman class in a decade this September, will close at the end of the current school year.The closure is not expected to affect current school operations. “Classes and activities will continue until the end of June as planned,” Kegley said.There are currently 340 students from 20 area communities attending Mater Dei, which employs 48 faculty and staff.St. Mary Elementary School, located next to the high school, will continue operations as will St. Mary, Mother of God Church.The elementary school has 680 students enrolled and is the largest Catholic elementary school in Monmouth and Ocean counties.The Diocese of Trenton’s Department of Catholic Education is expected to offer Mater Dei families information about area Catholic schools, Kegley said.Kegley did not return a phone call seeking comment by press time on Wednesday.The diocese department of education did not offer a statement from Bishop David M. O’Connell on Wednesday, as the bishop was recovering from recent surgery, according to Rayanne Bennett. But, Bennett said, the local pastor was responsible for the decision in consultation with the parish council and the bishop.Diocese offices were referring callers to the school’s website, which has Kegley’s letter.“It’s a sad day for all of us,” said Robert Abetamarco, principal of Red Bank Catholic High School, Red Bank. “When you lose a school with that kind of tradition, storied past, it’s just such a sad thing.Abetamarco was scheduled on Wednesday afternoon to participate in a conference call with diocese representatives and those from other area Catholic schools to discuss “ways to help facilitate these families in their transition and continue their Catholic education,” he said.“I am sure I speak for everybody when I say we’ll do all that we can to make them feel welcome wherever they go,” Abetamarco said.Brother Frank Burns, president of Christian Brothers Academy, an all-boys Catholic school, Lincroft, said on Wednesday about Mater Dei’s efforts, “I know they were putting their best efforts into keeping the school going,” he learned from his conversations with that school’s officials. “I know they were trying to make a go of it.”He, like Abetamarco, offered his support in assisting families, as much as he could.“Anything we can do, we will,” he said. But, Burns said registration for the incoming freshman class is at capacity and there is a waiting list of 60 students and “We have to honor our commitment to them,” he said.For parents and students, it was shock and anger over not only the message, but also the way the message was delivered.“We don’t understand the suddenness and timing of it,” said Tinton Falls resident Elizabeth Wulfhorst, whose daughter Emma is a junior at Mater Dei. “Why wasn’t there a plan in place to graduate the existing students?’Wulfhorst said she was “blindsided” by the abrupt delivery of the end.Parents on Tuesday received a phone blast message directing them to an important message on the school’s website, said parent Jean Zeuschner. “I think it was very poor communication and delivery.”“It just kind of came out of nowhere,” observed sophomore Kayla Greiss, Union Beach, speaking of the news. “None of us saw this coming.“Everyone is pretty upset; everyone is heartbroken,” Greiss said.With reporting contributions by Christina Johnson and Muriel Smithlast_img read more
