The club said it was impressed with Anh's control in the midfield that he displayed at Hoang Anh Gia Lai FC and the national team, especially his excellent performances in the 2020 World Cup qualifiers recently. The decision to trial Anh is partly due to the injury suffered by their top midfielder, Tomas Pina. A chance to play in the La Liga has thrilled Anh, but HAGL FC are not so happy. "Tuan Anh stills plays an important role in our club's plans for the new season," a board member said. Anh is arguably one of the most talented midfielders Vietnam has ever had. In 2016 he played for Yokohama FC in Japan's J2 League, but with limited success. Alaves are entrenched in the La Liga. In the 2018-19 season the club finished 11th. They are currently in 15th place with 18 points from 16 matches. … [Read more...] about La Liga club invites Vietnamese midfielder for trial
May, who was appointed prime minister shortly after Britain voted to leave the EU in June, faced down attempts in both the lower and upper houses of parliament to add conditions to legislation giving her right to launch the divorce. Both houses backed the so-called Brexit bill and after securing symbolic approval from Queen Elizabeth, which could come early on Tuesday, May has the right to begin what could be Britain's most complex negotiations since World War Two. But beyond saying she will begin the formal process by the end of this month, May has yet to answer the question of exactly when, and end nine months of guesswork as to how her government will approach the unchartered territory of leaving the EU. "We are now on the threshold of the most important negotiation for our country in a generation," Brexit minister David Davis said in a statement after parliament approved the legislation on Monday. "We have a plan to build a Global Britain, and take advantage of its new place in the … [Read more...] about May wins right to launch EU divorce talks, question is when?
Four of Vietnam’s jiu-jitsukas at this year’s Southeast Asian (SEA) Games bring more to the table than a passion for the sport originating in Brazil, as they are also leaders in the country’s fitness, business, and restaurant industries. A total of 856 athletes from Vietnam participated in the 2019 SEA Games held in the Philippines from November 30 to December 11, over 200 of whom competed in events funded by the private sector rather than the Vietnam Sports Administration. Despite being among the group of sports not financed by the administration, Vietnam’s jiu-jitsu squad consisted of a relatively strong group of 11 jiu-jitsukas. Of the 11, four lead a double life. While not trying to tap out opponents, Nguyen Cat Tung, Nguyen Ngoc Tu, Thu Huong, and Pham Tri Dung make a living in professions outside of sport. According to Bui Dinh Tien, coach of Vietnam’s jiu-jitsu team at this year’s SEA Games, though these four might not be … [Read more...] about Chef, personal trainer, business professionals on Vietnam’s SEA Games jiu-jitsu squad
