Euro 2016: Marcus Rashford says England call still doesn’t seem real

first_imgManchester United’s 18-year-old striker Marcus Rashford admits being a member of England’s Euro 2016 squad still feels like a dream.Rashford was the surprise selection in Roy Hodgson’s squad after a rapid rise from United’s youth team to first-team regular, having only made his debut in February.”When I first went into the changing room and saw all of the players’ names on the back of their shirts, it didn’t seem real,” Rashford said in an interview alongside club and national captain Wayne Rooney on the Football Association’s website on Thursday. (Young English team ‘most serious’ in years, says Sagna)”I remember going home after and speaking to my brother about it, and he agreed with me. He didn’t think it was real either. That’s what it’s like until you get used to it.” (Euro 2016: Players to watch out for)DREAM DEBUTRashford marked his Manchester United debut with two goals against Denmark’s Midtjylland in the Europa League in February, then scored two more in his Premier League debut against Arsenal.He scored again on his England debut in the first few minutes of a friendly against Australia last month.”(At Christmas) I was actually trying to work my way into (United’s) under-21s side and all of a sudden I appeared in the first team. You have to be ready when your chance comes,” he said.”At the end of the season you hear talk and stuff, but to be here now is just amazing. For it to be in my hands to go out and help the country is an amazing feeling.”advertisementRashford is vying with Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy, Rooney and Daniel Sturridge for a striking berth.”I think it’s a good way to end the season for me, and hopefully we get some joy in the tournament,” he said.last_img read more

Minister reinstates regular vehicle licensing

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#TurksandCaicos, August 16, 2017 – Providenciales – Motorists can now license their vehicles any weekday due to a recently announced stride at the Road Traffic Department.   In late July, Minister responsible, Delroy Williams announced that licensing would be expanded from just the Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to every weekday.   The measure, he said, will greatly ease the frustrations of thousands of motorists.During his ministerial statement on July 27, Minister Williams explained that a cost saving measure is also taken regarding the decals for vehicles.    It will mean no excess stock and it will hopefully bring to an end the problem of the #RoadTrafficDepartment running out of the stickers which validate all motor vehicles as licensed by Government.It was also explained that “equipment is being installed in North Caicos and South Caicos to facilitate the drivers license process and soon, very soon,” he said, “motorists will not have to travel to Provo or Grand Turk to obtain or renew a driver’s license.”Another soon to come from the Ministry of Home Affairs, a ground breaking for the new post office construction in Providenciales in a matter of weeks as Minister Delroy Williams, in the House of Assembly last month explained the contract for work to begin has already been signed.   A stand alone home for the Provo Post Office has not existed since February 2014, when the former site was shut down due to infestation and dilapidation.#MagneticMediaNews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#magneticmedianews, #RoadTrafficDepartmentlast_img read more

Reducing Paper … With Paper

first_imgSupermarkets across the country are calling on shoppers to be more green. They say we should buy environmentally-friendly products. We should buy reusable bags to carry our groceries. Some are even charging fees for their paper or plastic bags.In the Northeast, the Big Y supermarket is no different. In fact, it has gone ahead and launched Going Green, a free magazine it says will help shoppers “make lifestyle choices that will benefit the environment and themselves.” Distributed at all of Big Y’s 56 locations throughout Massachusetts and Connecticut, the 37-page print magazine will feature money saving tips to help save the planet, a guide to eco-friendly purchases and information on reusing and recycling.Isn’t it a bit ironic for Big Y to promote green practices by producing a printed magazine? Could they have printed “green tips” on their paper bags instead?last_img read more
