first_img 3 Raheem Sterling’s performances for England at the World Cup prove just how good Manchester City are as a team, according to Vinnie Jones. 3 3 Sterling played six games at the World Cup – only being rested for England’s final group game against Belgium Sterling polarised opinion at this summer’s tournament – which saw England progress to their first World Cup semi-final in 27 years.While many berated the winger for failing to find the net, as many – if not more – threw their support behind him, hailing his industrious off-the ball play and forwards runs.On the whole, Sterling played well for the Three Lions, but the England man should not be above criticism – for a player who scored 23 goals for Premier League champions Man City last season, he wasted a lot of chances in Russia.He has now not scored in three major tournaments in a Three Lions shirt – with his last goal for England coming in 2015.center_img England manager Gareth Southgate backed Sterling to the hilt at this summer’s World Cup During the World Cup, while the criticism of Sterling appeared to peak, Jones remarked that the winger ‘would be playing for Exeter’ if it weren’t for his lighting pace.And the former Chelsea and Wimbledon man added on Monday that he believes Sterling’s goalscoring form at the Etihad Stadium is largely due to the players around him.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Jones said: “I never got on Sterling’s back, I just said that sometimes his pace gets him out of a lot of trouble.“When you go into a better team you play better yourself, there’s not so much pressure on you to dominate games. Sterling scored 23 goals for Manchester City last seasob “At Man City, they dominate so many games in the Premier League that Sterling is going to get a lot of chances and will score more goals.“But [for England] when you’re behind the ball you’re always fighting to get out.“When you’re playing for good teams you can look better than you actually are sometimes.”last_img read more

There are no spiritual, ethical or moral justification for the abuse of children.   All must encourage the care, protection and nurturing of children.Exposure to violence during childhood can lead to a wide range of problems including cognitive, emotional, mental and physical issues as the child grows. Experiencing violence as a child affects the child’s ability to lead a happy, healthy, and productive life.It is required by law within the Turks and Caicos Islands for individuals to report suspected child abuse.   Reports should be made to the Royal Turks and Caicos Police Force and/or the Department of Social Development and can be made anonymously.The following activities are planned for this Universal Children’s Day:Morning Devotions at schools throughout the Islands.Information sharing on Radio TC on birth registration and child rearing practices.Partnership with churches to incorporate aspects of Universal Children’s Day into their sermons.Information booths at grocery stores on Positive Parenting Practices.So, this Universal Children’s Day celebrate your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or any child in your life.   Be thankful for them, cherish them, and appreciate all the joy they bring into this world.last_img read more

We have a job to do and we will do our job.”Press Release: Bahamas Press Club Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more
