Rubén García: “We are confident and we will go for the game”

first_imgNo doubt in Pamplona it is the game of the year, it is different. We have to assimilate that, if all the matches are important, we have to give this a bonus, especially at the mental level. There are three points at stake and we are going to measure eleven against eleven, but we already know what it means to measure yourself to such a team, and more belonging to Osasuna. There is a certain rivalry.As for the environment, what do you expect?I know that for the fans it is an important game and that they live it in a special way. We also have to give this meeting the importance it has.Real Madrid has been measured a few times …Yes. I don’t know how many times exactly but I have measured them a few times. In my first year in Levante I played against them. Then Mourinho trained him and there were Xabi Alonso, Cristiano, Higuain … It was a different time than now. It’s always nice to be able to play against players like that. I remember a game at the Bernabéu, in which in the 40th minute we were winning zero one and we ended up losing four to one. In a couple of plays they made the game. The Bernabéu squeezes a lot. It is a very complicated field.He has pending feeling what it is to beat Madrid and mark him.Yes. With the Levant I don’t remember winning them. I remember two games at home, which we were winning and in the absence of two minutes we had the victory. It would be nice to win and also these types of victories usually have a lot of impact.What would it mean for you to mark Real Madrid?Beyond marking Madrid, I would be happy that it was a goal that would help the team. If the goal were victorious, it would be special. Not only for beating Madrid, which is a challenge, but the really important thing would be to be able to help the team with three points. It would be a step forward and be closer to the goal. It will be very complicated, but it will be tried. Where do you think is the greatest danger of the Zidane team?On an offensive level they are doing very well, they are making many goals and also these great teams, when they catch good streaks, they usually fit very few. It has very effective players above, which overflow a lot and closing behind makes it very difficult to beat them. In El Bernabéu they have already shown us that it is not easy to create opportunities and harm them and here they will come with the same intention. It is true that we play at home, before our fans, and we have a lot of confidence in us and we will go for the game.Which Madrid player do you see better at this time?I think one of the key pieces is Casemiro, in the midfield. Beyond travel, effort and disputes, I think it is the team’s stopwatch and who stabilizes it. He gives it a lot of contention and for teams like that, players like him are key.If I could, which Madrid player would Osasuna be brought to?I could not tell you. We have the players we want. It is not only a matter of what a player can contribute in the field, it is also necessary to adapt to the costumes and grace to God in Osasuna everyone is very adapted. It is true that I could choose any player, there are so many good in Madrid that I would not know how to say one.You have already shown that you are able to face any team and more in El Sadar.We are aware of the connection we have with the fans and everything we have done. But it is of little use to think now of everything we have done if we do not succeed in trusting ourselves and our possibilities. We may not be at our best in terms of sensations and security in the field, but we are not going to go crazy now for losing some games, nor could we think we had everything done when we had that good run. We have to keep trying to improve and I think we can do something nice.Osasuna usually presses very high. Can a team like Madrid be played like this?Yes. He is a rival who dominates all tactical variants and at the offensive level. We may be ourselves, but we must also be aware that we will have to do many things well and be very focused to be able to harm them. They are a rival that, with little, can do you a lot.On a personal level, how are you feeling?In pre-season I had discomfort in the pubis. With work and insistence I have been improving, although it is an injury with which you have to continue working and strengthening. I have gone from less to more, finding myself great. In these last games I am playing more than half a point, a position in which I already played last year. I am happy to participate and continue contributing things to the team, with goals or assists. I’m very happy.It has been rumored that in the winter market some team tempted him …I have read something. In the world of football there are these things that are a bit more extra-sports. I don’t like being aware of these things, I usually handle them through representatives. You get things but I have been focused at all times and at no time I thought about leaving. When you are happy in a place and you feel the confidence and you are in fullness, you do not look beyond to continue contributing things and to continue working.What have you found in Osasuna that you have not found in other equipment?I have found something very important, which is emotional stability, beyond football. This is something fundamental to be happy and then translate it on the pitch and to be in life, and in the day to day, oneself. When you arrive at a new place you have doubts and do not know what awaits you. I was lucky to get it right and find the right place. I am very happy and I think that people who know me notice it and those who see me on a sporting level think that they see me comfortable in the field. This serves to keep growing and be better every day. Do they face the week differently or is it more the media fuss that forms?The players don’t realize that much. You focus on making it one more week of work, to improve and to work to the fullest. But it is true that around you notice something different. We try to avoid everything that surrounds it and focus on day to day.He is going to play his first Osasuna- Real Madrid in El Sadar …center_img It is one of the key pieces of the Arrasate team. Its quality does not go unnoticed and in fact the rumor mill says that some team tempted him in the winter market. However, Rubén García does not think of anything other than Osasuna, where he has found stability on and off the pitch. He knows that Madrid will make it difficult for him, but he fully trusts the possibilities of his team.Real Madrid arrives at El Sadar, is it a special match?It is always special to play against Real Madrid, even more so when it becomes the leader. It is a meeting that El Sadar lives a lot and we, as players, also like it. It is a beautiful game that everyone wants to play.last_img read more

Electrification in India Better Than Govt Claims, Says World Bank

first_imgLess than a week after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that all villages in the country have been electrified, the World Bank has said that more people in India have access to electricity than that portrayed by the Indian government.Observing that India is doing “extremely well” on electrification, the World Bank report noted that the country has been providing electricity to 30 million people each year, more than any other country between 2010 and 2016, according to PTI.Even as challenges remain to provide electricity to rest of the 15 per cent of 1.25 billion Indian population, the country will achieve universal access to electricity before the set target of 2030, Vivien Foster, Lead Energy Economist at the World Bank, told PTI.Foster, who is the lead author of the report on Energy Progress, said the figures they report are higher than that cited by the Indian government. “India is doing extremely well on electrification. We are reporting India about 85 per cent of the population has access to electricity. That might surprise you. The government is currently reporting in low 80s,” Foster was quoted as saying by the news agency.Foster pointed out that World Bank’s method of data collection is household survey while the government figures are based on official utility connection.“In absolute terms, India is doing more on electrification than any other country. Thirty million a year, is really an astounding performance and it stands out from the crowd,” she was quoted as saying.While India is entering the final stage of electrification, the country is not the fastest in the process. Bangladesh and Kenya, for example, are faster in electrification than India, Foster said.“You are already well over 80 per cent, so you’re getting into the more difficult aspects of electrification: the more remote population, the harder to reach people,” she added, pointing out reliability of service as an area of concern. “We know that in some parts of India or having the connection doesn’t necessarily guarantee the energy’s reliable supply. So, getting the connection obviously is very important, but India still has a long way to continue to work on actually making that access meaningful in terms of hours of service,” Foster said.About 250 million people in India will gain electricity access between now and the early 2020s when the country is expected to reach full access stage, the report projects. The rapid growth of electricity access in India is propelled by the country’s $2.5 billion electrification program to reach universal electrification.
