Duffy said: “Me and James (McClean) were just speaking about that – we used to go to the games, and now he’s picking me to play for his team. “Everything has happened so quickly for me, it’s still a blur for me really. Playing for Ireland, my country, there’s no prouder feeling than to be here. “All around world football (O’Neill) is well known for what he’s done. For him to pick me as a manager, he thinks I’m all right – that’s just an honour for me to be in the squad.” Duffy has had to wait for his chance after very nearly making his senior debut as a teenager, only for life-threatening injury to intervene. He had been promised his chance in an end-of-season friendly against Paraguay in 2010 by then manager Giovanni Trapattoni, but days before the game he suffered a horrific training ground accident which left him with a lacerated liver and needing emergency surgery. Duffy was back on the training pitch within weeks, but freely admits it took him time to regain his form and confidence, and loan spells at Burnley, Scunthorpe and Yeovil, where he made 39 appearances last season, since have helped him to rebuild his career. He insists he never thought his chance had gone, but was delighted to have finally pulled on the green shirt. He said: “I thought always if I was playing, I’d get a chance. Shane Duffy admits he has to pinch himself when he reflects upon making his senior international debut for the Ireland under Martin O’Neill. The 22-year-old Everton defender won his first senior cap against Costa Rica during the early hours of Saturday morning, fulfilling one long-held ambition. But as a Celtic fan, he was just as delighted to be handed his chance by fellow Derry man and former Hoops boss O’Neill. “This is my first season where I’ve played football. It’s been just games here and there for a few years. “I thought if I got a full season I always felt I had a chance. I have self-belief, but to be here is great. “It’s been a long four years. I don’t know, I was just focusing on club football to see if I could get back to where I was, and hopefully this season I have shown that. “Playing the other night was sort of a reward for four years ago, what happened, so I was just delighted. “I am made up to be even in the squad, so to play was a dream. Obviously when you start playing football, you want to play for your country, so I was delighted when it actually came.” Duffy will hope for another opportunity when Ireland face Portugal at the Metlife Stadium in New Jersey during the early hours of Wednesday morning. But if he is pitched into battle once again, he knows he has things to work on after a straight-talking assessment of his contribution against the Costa Ricans from O’Neill. “He said I did some good things and I did some bad things which I need to improve on,” said Duffy. “That is what you want to hear because hopefully that means he cares about me, so it was good. “He has been brilliant since I came in and I have enjoyed it, really. “He just tells you straight up. It’s good for players as well, there’s no hiding. He tells you what you have done good and bad, and that’s what you want to hear really.” Duffy ended up playing alongside close friend and fellow Derry native McClean after he was asked to fill in as a makeshift left-back when Marc Wilson picked up a hamstring strain. He joked: “That was the last thing I wanted! But fair play to him, he did all right, he was good going forward. “He gives everything for his country and I was buzzing to play in the same team as him. “You know what he’s like, he thought he was the next left back for Ireland!” Wilson will play no part against the Portuguese and midfielder Glenn Whelan has returned home because of a family illness, but full-back Stephen Ward has rejoined the squad.

He was born and raised in a mountain village. His stone house had neither running water nor electricity. At 17, against the wishes of his parents, he bid his family good-bye, and trudged for days over hundreds of miles to the big city where he would be the first in his family to attend college and attain his dream of becoming a teacher. His story was met with eye-rolls by his two young grandsons. Their struggles in childhood centered on not having the latest Nintendo game or the fastest computer CPU. Papou Yorgo graduated from teacher’s college, honorably served his country in the military, and then returned to the mountains to begin his career in a small school. He was soon the proud husband of Yiayia Tasia, and father of their two children, one of whom grew up to be Alex and George’s dad. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan ClarksonOn the cusp of adolescence, Alex and George didn’t see their grandfather’s admirable life and career behind the face of the stern gray-haired old man. Now in his 80s, Papou was a relic of an “uninteresting” era. Visiting the grandparents every summer usually meant escaping their company for biking and soccer on the streets with peers. An unusual afternoon shower during one of those visits a few years ago brought the boys running inside. Sans video games, computers, or satellite TV, it wasn’t long before “I’m bored,” echoed through the house. Papou Yorgo responded with a gruff, “Come here,” and handed each of the boys a bevy of tools. “This door is broken,” he said, demonstrating how the scratched wooden portal was loose on its hinges and too warped for its frame. “We are now going to repair it.” Grumbling, George and Alex reluctantly worked alongside their grandfather, sawing, sanding, hammering, and staining. At first, their efforts were half-hearted, but, as the project progressed, their enthusiasm grew. George was amazed to discover that his Papou was as good at tinkering, adjusting, and fixing things as he was. And Warcraft aficionado Alex was soon a rapt listener to Papou’s tales of real battles won during World War II and the Greek Civil War. By the time the sun returned, the team had refurbished the door and laid plans for additional renovations – and conversations – together. The call that Papou was very ill came in mid-October. “I’m going to pray for Papou,” Alex admitted, “that God makes a miracle and saves him.” “God did give him a miracle,” I responded. “Twenty-five years ago, when he was cured of cancer. He got a chance to live to see his children get married, and to get to know his grandchildren and watch them grow up.” But I was grateful for yet another miracle. That my boys had had the chance to get to know Papou and learn their family’s heritage and history at his side. Papou Yorgo passed away peacefully at the end of October. His memory and his gifts live on in all our hearts.

zoom Germany’s Port of Hamburg has recorded a 0.3 percent increase in its total seaborn cargo throughput for the first three quarters of 2016, handling 104.9 million tons of freight against 104.6 million in the same period last year. The port’s seaborn cargo exports, including general and bulk cargo segments, dropped by 4.1 percent to 44.4 million tons from 46.3 million tons handled in the first nine months of 2015.Imports for the period rose to 60.5 million tons from 58.3 million tons of cargo seen in 2015, representing an increase of 3.8 percent.“Seaborne cargo throughput in the Port of Hamburg has stabilized and for the first three quarters of 2016 again increased. Seen separately, the third quarter with a 2.7 percent upturn to 34.7 million tons underlines the upwards trend,” Axel Mattern, Joint CEO of Port of Hamburg Marketing, said.Bulk cargo throughput in Hamburg for the first nine months of 2016 was up by 0.3 percent at 34.5 million tons, against 34.3 million tons recorded in the same period last year. Bulk cargo imports during the first three quarters rose by 6.7 percent to 25.7 million tons, while exports stood at 8.7 million tons, 14.8 percent below the previous year’s.Non-containerized general cargo throughput for the three-month period of 2016 was at 1.2 million tons, 9.5 percent lower from 1.32 million tons seen in the same period last year.Imports in this sector decreased by 2.2 percent, while exports plunged by 13 percent for the first nine months of the year.In the first nine months of the year, the port’s container throughput remained almost at the previous year’s level. Containerized cargo volume was up by 0.4 percent to 69.3 million tons, while the number of boxes handled dropped 0.1 percent and stood at 6.7 million TEUs.The Port of Hamburg’s container throughput statistics for the first three quarters indicated 0.5 percent growth to 3.5 million TEUs in import boxes, while exports went down to 3.2 million TEUs, remaining 0.6 percent below the previous year’s figure, according to Mattern.“Despite the increase in import containers and an overall 0.5 percent advance for loaded containers, reaching 5.7 million TEU in the first three quarters, a very slight 0.1 percent downturn occurred in the Port of Hamburg’s overall throughput figure. That is primarily attributable to fewer transhipment services with ports in Poland and Sweden,” Mattern added.For the full year 2016, the Port of Hamburg expects its seaborne cargo to be at last year’s level of 138 million tons, with container throughput amounting to 9 million TEUs.
