We’ve got some unbelievably strong teams

ABUJA, June 24 (Xinhua) -- Nigeria's U23 soccer team will open its training camp in the United States ahead of the forthcoming Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) said on Friday.

The NFF said its decision was at the behest of coach Samson Siasia who opted for Atlanta, venue of Nigeria's historic triumph in the Olympics football event 20 years ago, in order to "psychologically prepare" his boys for victory in Brazil.

Nigeria has named a 35-man provisional squad which includes Chelsea star Mikel Obi ahead of the camping.

The team will also play a number of friendlies while preparing hard for the Olympic football event, the local football federation said, adding the training program would make it easier for the U23 team's handlers to draw a final list of 18 players for the competition. Enditem

SEOUL Ryan Callahan Salute to Service Jersey , Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- South Korea vowed to continue close cooperation with the United States to peacefully resolve the Korean Peninsula's nuclear issue after U.S. President Donald Trump made a combative speech at the UN General Assembly about the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

An unnamed South Korean foreign ministry official was quoted by Yonhap news agency Wednesday as saying that South Korea and the United States will continue close cooperation and consultation, like in the past, to achieve the common goal of peacefully resolving the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula.

The comment followed the U.S. president's debut speech at the UN General Assembly, in which he said his country "will have no choice but to totally destroy" the DPRK if it is forced to defend itself or its allies.

The South Korean official told local reporters that President Trump's speech was to re-confirm the common position of South Korea and the United States to make the DPRK realize that the denuclearization is the only way left to the country.

The official was quoted as saying Trump, as U.S. president, allotted an unusually long time to expressing his stance on the DPRK Brayden Point Salute to Service Jersey , which showed how seriously the U.S. government took the issue.

Trump's speech came amid rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula after Pyongyang's sixth nuclear test on Sept. 3.

In response, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted a new resolution toughening sanctions on the DPRK.

Days after the resolution was adopted, the DPRK flew an intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM) over Japan.

World No.1 Rafael Nadal has been drafted to represent Team Mumbai, Novak Djokovic will headline Team Dubai, while top WTA star Serena Williams will feature in Team Singapore, in the inaugural edition of the International Premier Tennis League (IPTL).

Team owners and IPTL organisers – led by Indian doubles star Mahesh Bhupathi, the Managing Director of the league, held a draft on Sunday in Dubai where a total sum of $23,975,000 was spent across four teams to be based in Bangkok Chris Kunitz Salute to Service Jersey , Mumbai, Dubai and Singapore.

Nadal will be joined by 14-time Grand Slam champion Pete Sampras in Team Mumbai Tyler Johnson Salute to Service Jersey , while Djokovic has fellow Serb Janko Tipsarevic, ex-world No1 Caroline Wozniacki and Arab No1 Malek Jaziri as his allies.

Teams owners are allowed to have up to 10 players in their roster.

“We’ve got some unbelievably strong teams. I think out of the 28 players that got drafted we have about 21 Grand Slam champions. We have 14 present and past number ones. It’s a pretty blockbuster field,” Bhupathi said.

Partly modeled after the financially-successful Indian Premier League (IPL), the IPTL has been described by Djokovic as a “fantastic concept” while others like Roger Federer – a notable absentee from the player field – has been more cautious in his views on the idea.

“Firstly, I want to see whether it takes off or not. I know a lot of people have invested in it or are part of it,” Federer told reporters in Dubai last week.
