This is the best chance England have ever had of repeating 1966, says Allardyce

first_imgGareth Southgate’s men begin their knock-out quest on Tuesday nightagainst Colombia at Moscow’s Otkrytie Arena – LIVE on talkSPORT.And Allardyce believes England will be extra-motivated to beat the South Americans after some of their big rivals were dumped out.“What a chance we’ve got,” he said on Tuesday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“Everybody says it’s one game at a time, and it is, but you can’t help looking a little bit forward.“This could be one of the best chances we’ve had to go further than we have done since 1966 – and that could be another motivation to the team.“I think that you’ve got to look at it that way.“But certainly the focus for Gareth and his boys tonight has to only be on Colombia and finishing the good work they’ve done.” 3 Harry Kane will be looking to add to his five World Cup goals against Colombia 3 3 England have the best chance of repeating their famous 1966 World Cup win at this year’s tournament in Russia, according to former manager Sam Allardyce.This summer’s World Cup has been one of the most open in recent history, with four of the big favourites crashing out early in huge upsets.The early exits of Germany, Spain, Argentina and Portugal mean England are unbelievably now the joint third favourites for the title – behind Brazil and France and level with Croatia.The crazy run of results in Russia also mean there are no previous winners standing between England and a potential place in the final. Big Sam believes scoring the first goal will be crucial to England’s hopes, and is confident the Three Lions will sail through to the last eight.“I’m going 2-0 to England,” the former boss added.“If we score the first goal I can’t see us being beaten, I think it would give the team the confidence to go on from there.“Tonight’s all about England playing to their best, holding their nerve and giving their best performance.“And then, when the chances arrive, making sure they take them.”talkSPORT are with listeners all day and all night at this year’s 2018 FIFA World Cup™ with over 800 hours of World Cup content and all 64 games live across the talkSPORT network.

Closure of UCI liver program shifts patients

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week A report by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services found that UCI was offered 122 livers between August 2004 and July 2005 but transplanted only 12. The hospital has not had a resident liver transplant surgeon since June 2003; its two surgeons were instead based in San Diego, some 90 miles away. At least two of the five remaining liver centers in Southern California have already expressed willingness to take in some UCI patients, although some have lists of nearly 700 people. There are more than 2,000 liver transplant patients in Southern California, and UCI had the smallest program in the region, Mone said. The other programs are at the University of California, Los Angeles; Loma Linda University Medical Center; the University of Southern California’s USC University Hospital; Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. A sixth program, at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Los Angeles, shut down this year after finding that doctors in 2003 gave an organ to a man who was not among the neediest and that staff covered it up. Seventy-five patients there were absorbed by other regional programs. There are also three liver transplant centers in San Diego, at Green Hospital of Scripps Clinic, UCSD Medical Center and Children’s Hospital San Diego. IRVINE – Dozens of people who have waited months or years for a new liver at UCI Medical Center must now go elsewhere after a probe by federal health officials led to an abrupt shutdown of the program, but some experts say the shift may speed up their transplant surgeries. More than 100 patients who were at the University of California, Irvine Medical Center, will transfer to one of five remaining liver programs in greater Los Angeles. Many could get desperately needed surgery within weeks or months after waiting at UCI for years, said Tom Mone, chief executive of OneLegacy, a nonprofit that contracts with the federal government to procure organs for patients in Southern California. “Their overall position on the list won’t change,” he said. “This shouldn’t make a significant difference in their wait time and for many patients at UCI it will probably speed them up.” The program at UCI Medical Center voluntarily closed its doors Thursday when federal officials cut funding for Medicare patients after finding that more than 30 people died while waiting for liver transplants in the past two years. “Many patients get confused thinking they have to repeat the whole process, but we try not to make them repeat anything,” said Julie Humeston, director of referral development for transplants at Loma Linda. Loma Linda has 120 patients on its list but has room to absorb “many more patients,” she said. Elodie Irvine, a former UCI patient who filed a lawsuit after waiting four years for a liver and kidney transplant, said she was relieved her friends who are still in the program may finally get relief. Irvine’s lawsuit and undisclosed settlement triggered the federal probe of the UCI program. “I know this saved lives,” said Irvine, 51, a resident of the city of Irvine. “I feel like something heavy has been lifted off me and I’ll sleep well tonight.” Other transplant patients, however, expressed shock and said they wondered about the safety of any program. UCI said it rejected many offered organs because they were of poor quality or weren’t a good match for patients. But many of the same organs were later successfully transplanted into patients at other hospitals. “It’s scary. These patients have put their trust in that facility and they’ve been failed,” said Mary Heisick, president of the Orange County chapter of the American Association for Kidney Patients and herself a kidney transplant recipient. “You wonder, is the system going to be safe anywhere else?” Mone said it’s not unusual for doctors to reject organs but it is unusual for a program to reject so many. UCI’s acceptance rate was about 4 percent, while other centers had rates between 9 percent and 13 percent, according to OneLegacy. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
