Chiellini says it will take all Juventus to stop Kane

first_img“Stopping Kane, just me alone, is pretty impossible,” said 33-year-old six-time Serie A winner Chiellini.“I’m not so presumptuous or arrogant to think I can. I hope the whole of Juventus can stop Tottenham, that is what matters.“One-to-one clashes are important but the whole team will have to do its best to limit, not only Harry Kane, but the ‘fab four’ (Kane, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-min) in the attacking area.“We shouldn’t just think of Tottenham as Kane, but as a whole team. They haven’t reached this level by chance.“Tomorrow we want to do our best with great respect and humility, aware that this is the very first step of a journey which I hope will take us to Kiev in May.”Juventus — finalists twice in the past three seasons — have conceded just one goal in their last 16 games and Kane said he was eager to lock horns again with Chiellini.– ‘Dead leg’ –“He’s an amazing defender,” said Kane, who has faced Chiellini before. “My first start for England probably the first five minutes he made a challenge and I probably had a dead leg for 10 minutes.“It was a good welcome to international football.”Harry Kane remembers being left bruised by his last meeting with Chiellini © AFP / MIGUEL MEDINAKane added: “We have to come here with belief we can get through. It’ll be tough tomorrow (Tuesday) night then hopefully we can take them to Wembley and get the job done.”It will be the first European meeting between the two sides and Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said there is no favourite.“It’s a very balanced challenge, it’s 50-50, the two teams are equal,” said Allegri. “We have to create an advantage tomorrow night and bring it to London where it will be decided.“Obviously I’d be glad not to concede, to end up with a clean sheet.”The Italian champions’ injury list includes Paulo Dybala and Blaise Matuidi, with Allegri admitting he has not yet decided on his final line-up.“We’ll have to see how I feel when I wake up tomorrow, so basically it depends on my alarm clock,” he joked. “Don’t think that I won’t be sleeping, because I can assure you I will be sleeping tonight.”Pochettino boasts a full squad apart from defender Toby Alderweireld, who is making his way back from a hamstring injury.“Juventus is a massive club, its history, they’ve won everything, we can’t compare,” said Pochettino of a side that has been finalists twice in the past three seasons.But the Argentine is hoping to pull off another upset after topping Real Madrid in the group stages.“Not many many people believed in us and our ability to get through. We’re going to be brave.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Giorgio Chiellini wants help in keeping Harry Kane quiet © AFP / MIGUEL MEDINATURIN, Italy, Feb 13 – Centre-back Giorgio Chiellini said it will take the entire Juventus team to stop Tottenham striker Harry Kane in Tuesday’s Champions League last 16 first leg clash in Turin.Mauricio Pochettino’s side have been in fine form in the Premier League recently, taking seven points from matches against Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal, with Kane scoring his 101st league goal in the north London derby last weekend.last_img read more

Photos | Exploring the California super bloom on Table Mountain

first_imgCHICO — A visit to Table Mountain during the months of spring rain is the best time to find fresh wildflowers before summer heat sets in. With the promise of a super bloom this year thanks to several extremely heavy storms, I was very hopeful about this spring’s potential for flowers up on the meadows and along the flowing creek, and took an afternoon drive to the mountain before the rain clouds returned.Driving from Chico to Durham-Pentz Road and Cherokee Road up to North Table Mountain …last_img

How to Produce Compelling Corporate Video

first_imgThe professional market is flooded with great videographers. Use these tips to develop compelling corporate video and make your work stand out.Today’s market for freelance videography and corporate video production is flooded with producers. With so many professionals offering the same services, how can you realistically stand out from the rest?It seems everyone with an iPhone or iPad can generate a video. Because of this, video producers have to really step up their game when it comes to production. And the best way to do that is to break away from the standard corporate video mold and draw on influences from cinema and top-end commercials in order to make your work rise above the crowd.Step 1: Work Closely With Your ClientNo one knows their own business more than your client, so listen intently to them when they tell you what they want to convey. Savvy companies will have a solid marketing strategy for the video you are going to produce. Just make sure that while you’re listening to their desires, you’re formulating how to creatively frame their desires on film. Having a good creative collaboration with your client is key.Step 2: Make Sure the Visuals Have ValueVideo from IDG Knowledge HubWhenever you’re putting together a corporate video, you want to relay the client information to the audience in the quickest and clearest way possible. This means you need to make sure that you aren’t wasting any visual time. All the visuals you use need to have a purpose and a value to the information that you are trying to convey.Step 3: Embrace the CinematicVideo from Brian McGintyOne thing that most audiences and clients like is when you move away from the traditional regimented corporate videos of the past and bring a more dynamic visual style. A great way to do this is to look for inspiration in your favorite films, music videos, or commercials. Any of these will give you a wealth of cinematic samples. Don’t be afraid to treat a corporate video in a very cinematic way. By doing this, you can really draw the audience in for your client.Step 4: Get to the PointVideo from EveryAppleVideoOne thing clients may not understand is the attention span of end users in today’s video market. They want their information to be quick and to the point. This means you need to take all the information the client wants to convey and condense it into the shortest form possible. Usually this will call for the video to be between a minute and a half to two minutes long.Step 5: Leave the Audience Wanting MoreVideo from Kings Cross MediaBy the end of the video, two things should happen… your client should want to do more business with you, and the audience should want to know more about your client. You do this by following the steps above and conveying your client’s message clearly and directly. As the video above does really well, you’ll want to leave the video with a small hook that will keep the audience coming back for more.A Few More TipsVideo from Bailey Cooper Photography and VideoIf you want a few more basic tips on putting together solid corporate videos, then be sure to check out the video above.
