Caretaker Hierro leaving his mark on Spain at World Cup

first_imgSpain head coach Fernando Hierro gestures as he speaks to his player Spain’s Koke during the group B match between Iran and Spain at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Kazan Arena in Kazan, Russia, Wednesday, June 20, 2018. (AP Photo/Sergei Grits)KAZAN, Russia — Fernando Hierro had an abrupt answer to those asking questions about his tactics and strategies at the World Cup.“I’m the new coach. I’m the national coach,” the former Real Madrid captain said. “You have to get used to that.”ADVERTISEMENT Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Harvey Weinstein rape trial Hierro made two changes for the match, bringing in defender Dani Carvajal and winger Lucas Vazquez. Carvajal had just recovered from a muscle injury he picked up during the Champions League final, but Hierro thought the defender would make an excellent partnership with Vazquez to create space in Iran’s flat and well-organized defense.“We needed to play deep on the right and have some space there for Lucas and Dani when they had to fight two against one,” Hierro explained. “It is true sometimes on the left they have changed the whole style of game, have changed their right flank. But, on Dani’s side, Lucas’s side, we created space and we were able to penetrate, able to get balance and that’s why we took this decision.”Hierro also repositioned Isco on the left, and it proved to be a successful decision as the Real Madrid was dominant in the midfield. His relentless work to win the ball back and his dribbles also contributed to wear down the opposition on a frustrating night for Spain’s attacking players.Hierro, a former Real Madrid star who spent 14 seasons at the Merengue club, has no major coaching experience before joining the national squad and it’s unclear whether he will remain at the helm of the national team after the World Cup.The 50-year-old 50 Hierro has been Carlo Ancelotti’s assistant at Real Madrid and coached second-division club Real Oviedo two seasons ago. But he recently served as the Spanish federation’s sports director and was already in Russia with the national team when Lopetegui was fired.ADVERTISEMENT Taal victims get help from Kalayaan town Bicol riders extend help to Taal evacuees Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina View comments Everyone gets chance to shine in PSL Invitationals Cloudy skies over Luzon due to amihan LATEST STORIES Christopher Tolkien, son of Lord of the Rings author, dies aged 95 Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award MOST READ He knows the Spanish internationals very well, and they all seem ready to listen to the new boss.A majority of Spain players were reportedly in favor of Lopetegui staying on for the tournament after Spanish soccer federation president Luis Rubiales made the move to fire the coach.Rubiales said Lopetegui had betrayed Spanish football values by accepting the coaching role at Real Madrid while still under contract with Spain. A little bit more than a week later, the players seem to have digested the shock decision pretty well. And in any case, they don’t give the impression they want to betray Hierro.At the end of their warmup om Wednesday night, they linked arms in a big circle. And a few minutes before kickoff, there were scenes of solidarity between the starters as Sergio Ramos gave Andres Iniesta a kiss on the cheek and held his teammate’s head in the tunnel leading to the pitch.“When I speak about my team, I speak about the 23 players,” Hierro said. “It’s a pleasure to see them, to get up in the morning and to see how committed they are. When you have players like mine, who are committed and fight, things look brighter.”With a coach like that, things are looking bright for Spain, too.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Pic copyright North West Newspics.Shaun Kelly, 26, had pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing the deaths of eight people on July 11th, 2010. Seven of those killed were his friends and passengers in the car which he was driving between Clonmany and Buncrana at Glasmullen.The other man killed in the crash was a 66 year old pensioner who was driving in the opposite direction on his way home from a night at bingo.The crash resulted in the single biggest loss of life from a car crash in the history of the state.The men who died in the crash were Hugh Friel (66), Urris,Clonmany, Eamon McDaid (22) of Ballymagan, Buncrana; Mark McLaughlin, (21) of Ballinahone, Fahan; Paul Doherty (19), of Ardagh, Ballyliffin; Ciaran Sweeney (19), of Ballyliffin; PJ McLaughlin (21), of Rockstown, Burnfoot; James McEleney (23), of Meenaduff, Clonmany and Damien McLaughlin (21), of Umricam, Buncrana.Judge John O’Hagan jailed Kelly for a total of four years but suspended that last two years and disqualified him from driving for ten years.Passing sentence he said it was sometimes difficult to be a judge.But he said “The consequences in the community are insurmountable and it is beyond description. It is a terrible, terrible tragedy.”The case had been adjourned from last week for today’s sentence at Letterkenny Circuit Court by Judge John O’Hagan.The court heard how Kelly and his friends had been socialising at the High Stool Bar in Clonmany on the evening of the World Cup Final.At about 10.30pm all the men got into Kelly’s car and drove towards Buncrana in an erratic manner.Eye-witnesses revealed how Kelly was screeching the tyres of his Volkswagen Passat car and there had ben s smell of burning rubber.Approximately 5.5 kms out the road from Clonmany to Buncrana, witness James Gallagher said he noticed a car in his rear-view mirror driving very fast and it was “driving up my a***.”The car then overtook Mr Gallagher in a ’jerky’ fashion before increasing speed and driving off wreckleesly.Mr Gallagher then flashed his headlights at the overtaking car but Kelly replied by flashing his indictors.Mr Gallagher then said he thought to himself that if the driver did not slow down he was going to kill someone.He then said he saw a silver car coming around a bend smoking and making a noise.Mrs Anne McGilloway, who was driving that silver car, was driving on the same road from Buncrana to Clonmany after attended bingo.Her statement revealed how she had overtaken a car being driven by Hugh Friel, another man killed in the crash.Traveling at between 40 to 50mph, she recalled seeing a black car coming around a bend and coming onto the wrong side of the road.She said she saw the driver trying to turn the steering wheel of the car to pull it back to his side of the road and thought “Thank God he’s going to miss me.”She then said she heard a loud bang and that her airbag had ben set off and there was smoke everywhere.Kelly’s car then spun out of control and fishtailed across the road again and struck Mr Hugh Friel who was coming behind Kelly and his seven passengers in the VW Passat.The Passat struck Mr Friel’s red Toyota Corrolla car with such impact that it drove it 18 metres back down the road.Kelly’s car finally stopped when it crashed into a ditch and struck a telegraph pole.Garda Sgt Carol Doherty, of Buncrana Garda Station, described a scene of devastation and carnage when she arrived at the scene of the horrific crash.She revealed how none of the men were wearing seatbelts in the VW Passat and that Kelly had his seatbelt clicked in and was actually sitting on the belt.She said the emergency services had tried to CPR on Mr Friel but he was declared dead at the scene at a short time later.All seven of Kelly’s passengers were pronounced dead at the scene while Kelly was transferred to Letterkenny General Hospital.Garda Doherty also told the court that Kelly had two previous convictions, one for dangerous driving before the crash and another for driving without a registration plate on his truck since the crash.Dr Mark Hogan, a clinical senior neuropsychologist based in Co Donegal, has been treating Kelly since March 15th, 2011.He said the overall situation was that Kelly has suffered a brain injury and was showing all the problems of trying to deal with that injury.He said Kelly had consistently talked about suicide and how he wished he could join his friends.He added that four and a half years after the incident, it is unlikely he will recall the events of the night of the crash.He has consistently talked about suicide and how he wished he could join his friends.He said he has overall expressed remorse and does accept responsibility for what happened on the night.All eight families who suffered a loss of life were invited to read out a victim impact statement to the court.All described the hurt, pain and grief they have suffered over the past four and a half years.Of the eight heart-breaking victim impact statements, four families appealed to Judge John O’Hagan not to send Kelly to jail.The father of the accused, Mr Liam Kelly read out a statement in court reflecting how his family had been affected by the crash.He revealed how a few weeks before the crash his son had wanted to go to America but he asked him to stay to help him in the family transport business.He added that he sometimes blames himself saying the crash may never have happened if he hadn’t asked his son to stay at home.He said there was now a healing process between the families and he asked Judge John O’Hagan not to interrupt that process.“We beg you not to do anything that will prevent that haling process in our communities,” he said.When Judge O’Hagan passed sentence, several people in the packed courthouse broke down crying.BREAKING NEWS: MAN JAILED FOR TWO YEARS FOR INISHOWEN CRASH WHICH KILLED EIGHT PEOPLE was last modified: December 19th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on
