Arsenal Goalkeeper Retires From International Football

advert

In a boost for Arsene Wenger’s plans for next season Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has announced his retirement from international football.

Sports Reporters 

Cech broke the news on his Twitter account: 

The 34-year-old goalkeeper is the Czech Republic’s most-capped footballer having made 121 appearances.

In a statement on Arsenal’s official website the former Chelsea goalkeeper said:

“When I was a kid, my ultimate dream was to play for the national team at least once.

“Having done it so many times makes me really proud.”

The Czech Republic crashed out of Euro 2016 at the group stages after failing to win a single game.

 

The goalkeeper told Arsenal.com:

I’ve had so many club games to play year-by-year too, and I think I’ve reached the point where I believe that if I want to continue doing things to 100 per cent every day, like I’ve always done, then I will probably need more time to rest and recover.

This is a purely football-based decision. If I want to prolong my career and play at the highest level for as long as I can, then I will probably need to find the balance so that I can continue to do so.

I’m now 34 and the next [international]tournament is in two years which, in football, is a very long time. The last thing I wanted to do was start a campaign and then say ‘I don’t think it’s right for me to continue’ halfway through it.

I’ve made fantastic memories and I will keep them. But as I said, you cannot stop time and sometimes you need to make decisions looking to the future. I believe it is the right move.

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
