The one who was president of Real Valladolid in 1983, Pedro San Martín López, died this Friday at 85 years of age due to a fall, as reported in an official statement ‘Bodegas de Alberto’, the company he presided over, as reported by EFE. As president, San Martín lasted only three months, just the summer ones, those of the signings, a time when together with Ramón Martínez, then blanquivioleta technical secretary, the club took over the Hiring of Cendoya, Sala, Moyano, Aracil, Peña, Fonseca and Jesús Ángel López. Later, after winning Real Sociedad 4-1, he resigned on September 20, 1983 and was named Mariano Hernández, provisionally, before Gonzalo Alonso de Paz assumed, again, three more years after having been president already between 1978 and 1982.It must be remembered, however, that the transfers of the team that he won the League Cup in 1984 they were under the presidency San Martín. Later García Traid would be dismissed, replaced by Fernando Redondo, in a campaign that ended with More lifting the only title of the blanquivioletas in their history.Real Valladolid also joined the mourning after the death of Pedro San Martín López. “From the club we send to his relatives and close friends our most sincere condolences,” wrote the Pucelana entity late on Friday. Pedro San Martín, President number 17 of the entity now chaired by Ronaldo Nazario, assumed the post of president three months at the head of a new board of directors, on June 23, 1983, after the resignation of the previous president Manuel Esteban Casado, who had ceased his office on May 5 and therefore had opened the electoral process that it would end San Martín as the top president, an adventure that would not last long.
Sanchez’s challenge was nothing short of superb The tackle was so last-ditch it looked like a penalty in real time, but VAR proved it was perfectly legal. Sanchez showed his quality in this action, to the very highest.LINE-UPSSenegal: Khadim N’Diaye, Gassama, Sane, Koulibaly, Sabaly (Wague 74′), Sarr, Kouyate, Gueye, Mane, Balde (Konate 80′), Niang (Sakho 86′)Subs not used: Diallo, Mbengue, Mbodji, Sow, Diouf, N’Doye, Alfred N’Diaye, Ndiaye, GomisColombia: Ospina, Arias, Davinson Sanchez, Mina, Mojica, Uribe (Lerma 83′), Carlos Sanchez, Cuadrado, Quintero, Rodriguez (Muriel 31′), Falcao (Borja 89′)Subs not used: Vargas, Zapata, Murillo, Barrios, Bacca, Diaz, Izquierdo, CuadradoGROUP H TABLE 4 4 Senegal became the first team in World Cup history to fail to make it out their group due to the fair play ruling, as Colombia’s 1-0 defeat of Aliou Cisse’s side saw the South Americans through to the knockout stage as group winners, along with runners-up Japan.Yerry Mina scored the all-important goal for Colombia, who lost influential playmaker James Rodriguez early in the match due to injury. Rodriguez was forced off with an injury after just half an hour 4 4 Senegal leave Russia despite finishing level on points, goal difference, goals scored and goals conceded with Japan, who progress to the last 16 as they finished the group stage with two yellow cards fewer than the African nation.Just after the 10 minute mark, N’Diaye saved the first real opportunity of the match as Juan Quintero looked to curl a free-kick into the bottom far corner of his goal.Senegal were looking bright on the attack, and they though they had won a penalty after 17 minutes when Davinson Sanchez appeared to down Sadio Mane in the area. The referee awarded a spot kick, but after a VAR review the decision was reversed, as it was clear Sanchez completed an inch-perfect tackle to win the ball; it was perhaps the finest tackle of the entire tournament.Further chances for the Africans came without any real threat of actually finding the back of the net, and Colombia should have taken the lead midway through the half when Quintero curled in another fine free-kick, only for Radamel Falcao to head well clear of the crossbar.Colombia were dealt a blow when James Rodriguez was forced out of the match with an injury after half an hour, and the South Americans seemed somewhat shell-shocked by losing their key playmaker. They offered little going forward for the remainder of the half, and Senegal really should have taken advantage of this situation. Yerry Mina scored a powerful header to secure the win for Colombia Luis Muriel, who replaced the injured Rodriguez, started the second half in blistering fashion and was unlucky not to score, while Ismaila Sarr was posing a threat to the Colombian defence down Senegal’s right flank.Further chances fell to Quintero, Muriel and Cuadrado, before Colombia finally made their pressure count just over 15 minutes from time.Some strong running from Cuadrado down the wing earned the South Americans a corner, and from the resultant delivery Mina jumped the highest and crashed a brilliant header past N’Diaye in the Senegal goal; N’Diaye did get a hand to the ball, and probably should have done better to keep the header out the back of his net.Senegal ramped up the pressure as soon as Mina opened the scoring, with Niang and Mane both testing Ospina in Colombia’s goal, before Sarr smashed a volley over the bar from just outside the six-yard box when he really should have hit the target.Moussa Konate then missed the target with a header, Idrissa Gueye failed to test the keeper with a free-kick, and Senega’s World Cup dream ended when the referee blew his whistle to signal Colombia’s progress to the last 16 as group winners.STAR MANNot only did Yerry Mina score the goal which sent Colombia through as group winners, he was a rock at the heart of his team’s defence for the entire match. Davinson Sanchez may have made the more noticeable impact in the defensive phase due to his brilliant challenge on Sadio Mane, but Mina was more consistent throughout the game.The Barcelona centre-back, 23, has now scored in both of Colombia’s last two matches at the World Cup, proving he is just as important in the opposition’s box as in his own.MOMENT OF THE MATCHDavinson Sanchez’s challenge on Sadio Mane was one of the finest moments of defensive play seen at the World Cup. He timed his tackle so perfectly to flick the ball away from Mane with the heel of his right foot, just when the Liverpool forward was going to have a free shot on goal.
