Five players who inspired Juventus’s Serie A triumph

first_img0Shares0000Douglas Costa and Paulo Dybala celebrate after winning the Scudeto with JuventusROME, Italy, May 14 – Juventus won their 34th Serie A title and seventh in succession on Sunday with one game left this season. Here, AFP Sport looks at five key players behind their latest league triumph:GIANLUIGI BUFFON Gianluigi Buffon © AFP / TIZIANA FABIEvergreen goalkeeper Buffon once again proved to be the lynchpin in Juventus’s title defence claiming his ninth Serie A crown with the club at the age of 40 years.It was a rollercoaster season for the skipper who was sidelined by injury but came back to set a new Serie A record for minutes without conceding a goal in March.Polish keeper Wojciech Szczesny proved a reliable replacement during Buffon’s layoff and stood in again during Sunday’s goalless draw against Roma which sealed the title as Buffon was rested.If Buffon retires at the end of this campaign he will miss out on overtaking AC Milan defender Paolo Maldini’s record of 647 appearances.But he would go out on a high after an excellent performance in the Italian Cup final win over AC Milan despite regrets for again missing out on the Champions League title.DOUGLAS COSTAEx-Bayern Munich winger Costa came into his own at his new club after a difficult start to the season.The 27-year-old initially moved to Turin on loan with an option to buy in a record 46 million euro deal for the German club last summer.And it paid off as he stepped up during a tricky time for the champions with injuries to top players including Federico Bernardeschi, Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala and scored four goals and made 12 assists.“He is one of those players who can make the difference and break a game open,” said coach Massimiliano Allegri of Costa who adds to his two Bundesliga titles with Bayern and five with Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk.Douglas Costa and Paulo Dybala © AFP / TIZIANA FABIPAULO DYBALADybala, 24, got off to an incredible start with a record-setting 10 goals in six Serie A games in a campaign which swung between brilliance and inconsistency.Dybala scored 22 goals this season including the last-gasp goal against Lazio allowing Juventus to take the lead in March.GONZALO HIGUAINGonzalo Higuain © AFP / Tiziana FABIThe 31-year-old Argentina forward proved a star performer for Juventus despite criticism when he went through a period without scoring.The former Real Madrid player arrived for a club-record 90 million euros from Napoli two years ago, and has scored 55 goals in two seasons including 16 in Serie A this season including the winner in the last-gasp 3-2 win against Inter Milan which ended Napoli’s title hopes.MEDHI BENATIAMedhi Benatia © AFP / Isabella BonottoMoroccan centre-back Benatia had the difficult job of filling in after Leonardo Bonucci’s departure for AC Milan and proved a key player with Giorgio Chiellini often injured and Andrea Barzagli on the downhill slope.The former Bayern Munich player was beaten by Kalidou Koulibaly during the 1-0 loss to Napoli in Turin and was also at the heart of the penalty conceded in the Champions League defeat to Real Madrid.But he finished the season on a high with a double in the Cup final.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Smoking up in films alarmingly

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals “We’ve estimated 390,000 kids start to smoke every year because of the movies,” said Glantz, a longtime tobacco control activist. “An R rating would cut that in half, so if we stay with the status quo, a couple hundred thousand kids will be delivered into the hands of the tobacco companies.” Glantz also wants any movie with smoking to have a mandatory public service announcement about the dangers of tobacco use played beforehand, no tobacco brand identification and a certification that film studios receive no compensation for the on-screen depiction of tobacco. The study comes several weeks after 32 attorneys general sent letters to Paramount Pictures, Fox Filmed Entertainment, Warner Bros., The Walt Disney Co. and five other studios requesting that they include anti-smoking messages in their DVD and home video. “We all are in agreement that smoking is a serious health problem,” said Kory Bernards, vice president for the Motion Picture Association of America. “Our industry shouldn’t be glamorizing it.” She said that parents should rely on PG-13 and R ratings as guidelines for what’s appropriate for children to see. Smoking by adults would not be reflected in the current ratings system, she said, nor is a mandatory R rating like Glantz seeks being considered. Smoking in films has risen to a level not seen since 1950, according to a study released Monday, reportedly leading nearly 400,000 adolescents to light up each year. Published in the journal Pediatrics and compiled from 40 individual studies, the report found that smoking or tobacco-related activities popped up 10.9 times per hour on film in 2002, the most recent year cited. That’s slightly above 1950, the last high point, and more than double the number in 1982, the lowest point. The study also found that youth-rated films, PG-13 and below, now have more tobacco impressions than R-rated movies. Stanton Glantz, a professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, who co-authored the report, said the findings lead credence to his quest for a mandatory R rating for all films that feature smoking.
