We still have to be in control, we still have to be on top of our minds and think of the things we did when we won our first game, last conference, the things we did when we got to the semifinals.” NLEX’ 22-point loss against the Batang Pier was its worst this conference, eclipsing the 123-103 setback it suffered at the hands of Columbian in its opening game.Ravena said the Road Warriors have been trying to do too much instead of just letting the game come to them.“I guess we’re trying too hard, we’re not having fun,” said Ravena. “We want to do so much and end up staying away from our system.”ADVERTISEMENT Getting cut, playing in ABL motivated Javelona to get PBA call-up MOST READ Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Spidey ensnares even more bucks

first_imgThe worldwide web spun by “Spider-Man 3” has reached $382 million – a box office opening record that is $7 million higher than originally estimated, according to final figures released by Sony Pictures Entertainment on Monday. That total includes a historic domestic opening of $151 million while revenue from overseas added up to $231 million. In addition to the U.S. record, opening weekend bests were achieved in 28 other countries including Canada, Japan, South Korea, China, Italy, Mexico and Brazil. Directed by Sam Raimi, “Spider-Man 3” is the third film in a blockbuster movie franchise launched in 2002 that stars Tobey Maguire in the title role. “We couldn’t be more overwhelmed or elated by the global reception to this movie,” Sony Pictures Vice Chairman Jeff Blake said in a statement. “`Spider-Man 3′ builds on the first two films and satisfies the extraordinary expectations of fans everywhere. This was truly a massive achievement not only for Sony Pictures, but the film industry as a whole.” The $382 million total shattered the previous record of $303 million set two years ago by the worldwide launch of “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.” “There have been other movies opening (simultaneously) like `Revenge of the Sith,’ `The Da Vinci Code’ and `Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban’ but this is on a completely different scale,” said box office analyst Paul Dergarabedian, president of Media By Numbers. “Talk about the world getting behind something.” greg.hernandez@dailynews.com (818) 713-3758 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

African players ‘not respected’ in Ballon d’Or vote- Eto’o

first_img“Western media dominate our media in Africa, so they definitely have an influence. People prefer to see a Lionel Messi goal,” Eto’o, 38, told AFP during a visit to Paris last month.The former Barcelona star, once a teammate of Messi, believes that “African players are not respected” and are “not always properly appreciated”.He recently hung up his boots after a glorious career in which he won the UEFA Champions League three times and the Africa Cup of Nations twice.He never won the prize for the world’s best player, although he insists he has no regrets.“No, because I won so many trophies, I made so many dreams and for me that is the equivalent of winning the Ballon d’Or. However, I do feel for my younger brothers who came along after my generation.”– Voting closes Friday –There are five African players on the 30-man shortlist for this year’s Ballon d’Or, with the winner to be announced at a ceremony in Paris on December 2.The 180 journalists who will vote for the successor to Luka Modric as winner have until this Friday to do so.Among the nominees are Senegal’s Sadio Mane and Egypt’s Mohamed Salah, both of whom starred in the Liverpool side that won last season’s Champions League.Liverpool’s Senegalese star Sadio Mane is one of the nominees to win this year’s Ballon d’Or © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFBoth finished just outside the top three in FIFA’s The Best awards in September, as Messi pipped Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo to the prize.Eto’o attended that awards ceremony in Milan and, when stopped on the red carpet and asked who he thought would win, he cited the names of Mane and Salah. A video clip of the brief interview went viral.“That was an opportunity for Africa to see a Sadio Mane or a Mohamed Salah on the podium, and why not win it. They both had wonderful seasons and it wouldn’t have shocked anyone had they won,” Eto’o said.The captains and coaches of all 54 African national teams voted, but by no means all of them gave their votes to Salah or to Mane, who reached the Africa Cup of Nations final with Senegal.“Why is there this hate between us Africans? Why the misplaced jealousy? If we don’t appreciate one another, others are not going to do it for us,” Eto’o said.“It’s a shame. If all Africans voted for other Africans, we would have had several awards for the best player.”– Premier League stars –After winning the Cup of Nations with Algeria, Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez has also been nominated, as has Napoli and Senegal defender Kalidou Koulibaly, and Arsenal and Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.“Africa needs to show how strong it is. We are lucky to have these good players, who scored more than ten goals in the Champions League — we had the top three scorers in the English league (Mane, Salah, Aubameyang) but somehow these young guys don’t have our support,” Eto’o added.Arsenal’s Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is one of five African players on the 30-man shortlist © AFP/File / Ian KINGTON“I want to accompany them as much as I can, defend them, protect them, because one day it will be their turn to pass on the torch.“That is what we Africans have not always understood, at all levels, and that is why we are still trailing behind.”Prior to last year, Ronaldo and Messi had won 10 consecutive Ballon d’Or awards between them.Both are nominated again this year, so would Eto’o be pleased to see Messi, his former Barcelona teammate, win it once more?“He is the best player of all time. I was lucky enough to see him come through and to have had a good relationship with him. When I give my opinion on Leo even he tells me I am not objective.“Everything Messi does…he is a footballing god. I’d be happy for him to win it again.”0Shares0000(Visited 46 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Samuel Eto’o is hoping this will be the year an African player wins the Ballon d’Or for just the second time © AFP / BERTRAND GUAYPARIS, France, Nov 7 – African players still do not get the recognition they deserve, Cameroon legend Samuel Eto’o told AFP in an exclusive interview, as he hopes that this will finally be the year another player from the continent wins the Ballon d’Or.George Weah, the former Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan striker who is now the president of Liberia, won the Ballon d’Or in 1995 but remains the only African player ever to have claimed the award.last_img read more

‘He’s been incredible’ – Wayne Rooney hails £36m man’s start to Man United career

first_img Anthony Martial 1 Wayne Rooney admits he has been stunned by Anthony Martial’s start at Manchester United.The 19-year-old Frenchman, a surprise £36m signing from Monaco in the summer, is quickly becoming the new darling of Old Trafford.He has already netted four goals for United this season and was outstanding in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Sunderland.“He’s been incredible,” Rooney told MUTV after the game.“He’s a 19-year-old lad who doesn’t speak English and has moved over from France with a young family, so we have to understand that.“He’ll be a big player for us throughout the season and in the future, but we need to let him enjoy his football, and I’m sure he’ll bring magic moments for us.”Rooney had Martial to thank for breaking his Premier League goal drought, the Frenchman providing his captain with an easy finish against against Sunderland.It was the England man’s first league goal in 12 games, but he played down its significance.“I wasn’t worried,” said Rooney. “It’s my fifth goal of the season for United and I’ve scored for England, so it was just all about getting off the mark in the league.“Hopefully, everyone will ­concentrate on me playing my football now and I’ll enjoy it.”last_img read more
