I don’t know. I think Alvaro is able to understand that it is only a tactical decision, it is not the final choice.“We thought yesterday that for the first time in the season that there was a possibility to have more spaces – so we wanted to try with Eden – because for the first time there was a possibility to play on the counter-attack.“Willian, Hazard, and Pedro are really very suitable for this kind of play, so it is a normal choice.

India may reply to Pak raking up Kashmir issue at UN

first_imgAmid moves by Pakistan to rake up the Kashmir issue at the United Nations’ General Assembly (UNGA) session, India is likely to exercise its right to reply on the matter. Earlier, Pakistan had said that prime minister Nawaz Sharif would again highlight the Kashmir issue in his address to the UNGA while ruling out resumption of any dialogue with India unless New Delhi takes the initiative in this regard. Pakistan’s foreign secretary Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry said here that there is ‘no reason’ for Sharif not to raise the subject of Kashmir during his address. The right to reply will be exercised by a senior official of India’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations. Last year too, Sharif had raised the issue while addressing the UNGA saying that the UN must remain ‘attentive’ to the protracted issue as also the ‘full realisation’ of the right to self determination of the Kashmiri people.last_img read more
