Goretzka strike salvages a draw for new-look Germany

first_img0Shares0000Germany midfielder Leon Goretzka salvaged a draw against Serbia. © dpa/AFP / Christian CharisiusBERLIN, Germany, Mar 21 – Leon Goretzka spared coach Joachim Loew a humiliating defeat with a second-half equaliser as a new-look Germany side were held to a 1-1 draw in Wednesday’s friendly against Serbia.Having controversially dropped veterans Jerome Boateng, Mats Hummels and Thomas Mueller from the national squad two weeks ago, coach Loew had announced the beginning of a “new era” ahead of Wednesday’s game. “I was generally happy with the performance. You could see that there were a few communication problems, but that is something which improves with experience at this level,” Loew told German broadcaster RTL after the game.The young Germany side looked comfortable in the opening exchanges, but Serbia scored with their first chance on 12 minutes.A fortunate deflection at a corner found Luka Jovic unmarked in front of goal, and the Eintracht Frankfurt striker nodded the ball past Manuel Neuer.Germany brought on Marco Reus and Leon Goretzka in the second half, and set about grinding down a solid Serbian defence.On the odd occasion Germany did break through, Serbian goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic frustrated the hosts with strong saves.But after Leroy Sane and Ilkay Gundogan failed to take chances, Goretzka equalised on 69 minutes, lashing the ball past Dmitrovic from the edge of the box.“Generally, when we have the ball on the wings, I try to find space between the penalty spot and the edge of the area, and on this occasion I struck the ball really well,” Goretzka told RTL.Serbian forward Milan Pavkov was sent off late in the game for a dangerous challenge on Leroy Sane, but the Germany and Manchester City player confirmed that he had not been injured.“I think the tackle looked worse than it was,” Sane told RTL.Germany will open their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign when they face the Netherlands in Amsterdam on Sunday.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Council meetings to be televised

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals An additional $20,000 will go to Hammack Audio Video Solutions to intall the system in the chambers. An unused storage closet in the chambers will also be expanded to become a TV control room. “It is obviously the direction a lot of cities are going in and we believe it will add a new dimension to the coverage of our council meetings,” said Bob Spencer, the spokesman for the city. The money will come from a $125,000 grant, cable provider Adelphia gave the city in 2003 as part of the extension of its franchise. Spencer said the equipment will be delivered and work will start on the council chambers in the next few weeks. The whole system should be up and running by February of next year, he said. PICO RIVERA – There will soon be lights, cameras and action in the Pico Rivera City Council Chambers. The council has approved purchasing television broadcasting equipment from a San Diego-based company to use to televise council meetings on cable television’s Channel 3 in Pico Rivera. “Having our meetings televised offers an additional medium to keep people informed on issues in our community,” said Councilman Gregory Salcido. “More information never hurts.” City officials will spend $29,681 to buy the equipment from Audio Video Supply Inc. Initially, the council meetings will be videotaped for later viewing.” The ultimate goal is live broadcasts of the meeting,” said Spencer. “But we won’t do that until we feel proficient in broadcasting them live.” An ad hoc committee, comprised of two council members, is also working on developing procedures and guidelines for televising council meetings, added Spencer. Eventually, officials hope to air more than council meetings. “We hope it can literally become a TV studio where we can do workshops on West Nile virus or a candidates forum,” said Spencer. “In the long run we would like to get more out of this system than televised council meetings.” debbie.pfeiffer@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
