Giménez: “People saw us outside with Liverpool; that motivated us”

first_imgThe Uruguayan defender recalled those feelings in a peculiar talk that he had by videoconference with Diego González, a 12-year-old member of the rojiblanco club, with whom he contacted to congratulate him on his birthday.During the conversation with the young athletic fan, whom he congratulated and recommended that he not lose the rhythm of study during home time due to confinement measures to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Uruguayan footballer explained his feelings in the match.“I entered the last 15 minutes, but the desire I had to play, see the teammates as they ran, the atmosphere of Anfield Road was brutal and the triumph I will not tell you. A gift for all of us, who have been through difficult times, we never gave up, “said Giménez. To questions from the young rojiblanco fan, the Uruguayan defender delved a little more into his experiences prior to that meeting against the current European champion, to which his team arrived with a scant 1-0 income achieved in the first leg in the Wanda Metropolitano.“The night before I remember a lot of anxiety, nervousness, We knew it was going to be a very difficult match, they showed it in Spain when they came, all the time they had the ball, we controlled well, and we knew that with the push of its people we were going to have a pretty bad time. But we have an incredible squad, We are a very young team and that gives us a lot of strength, “he explained.With the ball in motion, Giménez remembers “a lot of anxiety” when experiencing it from the bench, since he did not enter the grass until the overtime.“And more when they score two goals, then nervousness, but when we make the goal, the other one, the nervousness calms down, you start to enjoy, to feel immense joyAnd when the game ended we celebrated because it was a victory that we knew was going to cost us a lot, “he added.“Many people saw us outside but we trusted and we hold on to those who did believe in us and we fought with the strength of those people, “insisted the Uruguayan defender.Giménez finished the video remembering the solidarity campaign that Atlético’s coach, the Argentine Diego Pablo Simeone, has launched to raise funds for the Red Cross in favor of the fight against Covid-19, supported by the club.“Diego is at home and so am I, but many toilets continue to work. I join the ‘We give everything’ campaign, The talk ended to congratulate the young athletic partner. The Uruguayan defender of Atlético de Madrid José María Giménez assured that one of the things that “motivated” the team to beat Liverpool (2-3) on the return leg of the knockout stage of the Champions League, his last match before the suspension due to the coronavirus, was that many people “saw them outside”.“I thought we were going to pass and more with the game we had played on our court. People gave us away and I think that was one of the things that motivated us the most to play the game, “said Giménez in a video published by the Atletico club.last_img read more

Final estimates in from 2019 Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour unveiled the stresses the corn and soybean crops faced following an excessively wet spring and record slow planting pace this year. Scouts on Crop Tour sampled around 3,000 fields across the Corn Belt in seven of the nation’s most important corn and soybean states.Pro Farmer estimates the 2019 U.S. corn crop at 13.358 billion bushels, based on an average yield of 163.3 bu. per acre. That compares to USDA’s Aug. 1 estimate of 169.5 bu. per acre. For soybeans, the Pro Farmer production estimate is 3.497 billion bushels, with a national average yield of 46.1 bu. per acre, down from the 48.5 bu. per acre USDA estimated in August.“Ear counts were lower than last year in all of the Crop Tour states as a result of the rough spring conditions,” said Brian Grete, Pro Farmer editor. “We also found a corn crop that was, in many cases, multiple weeks behind in maturity due to the record-slow planting.”Jeff Wilson, Pro Farmer’s senior market analyst, said, “Soybean pod counts in a 3-foot by 3-foot square were down sharply across the seven Crop Tour states. That means the yield ’factory‘ is limited, especially in the eastern Corn Belt and South Dakota, where the spring conditions were worst and plantings were most severely delayed.More than 125 scouts, including farmers, agribusiness experts, media, government and financial firm representatives from 12 countries participated in the 2019 Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour. Field scouts gathered crop samples across portions of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio and South Dakota. Collectively, these states account for 70% of U.S. corn production.last_img read more
