Internazionale striker Mauro Icardi, took a dig at many elements from the last Argentina National Team after the match against Mexico.Back when the old guard of Argentina players was more important for the National Team, striker Mauro Icardi always felt like there wasn’t a camaraderie towards him for some reason and he always felt like an outsider.Now that he returned to the squad without all those veteran players to worry about, Mauro even got to score his very first goal for Argentina and feels more like a leader when he never felt that way in the past.After the second match against Mexico in which he was one of the two goal-scorers, Mauro spoke to the press about a controversial matter and he didn’t hold back when the media members asked him about his previous experience in the National Team.It’s evident that back in the day due to some personal problems he had with striker Maxi Lopez, many Argentina players never got to trust him because of this incident and some of the leaders inside the dressing room cast him out o the squad.But the new group of players that shared time with Mauro, are a younger generation who only know about his impressive spell in European football and they all respect him.”ANTES EN LA SELECCIÓN NO HABÍA ESTE COMPAÑERISMO”#CentralFOX | Mauro Icardi, picante luego del 2-0 de Argentina ante México. pic.twitter.com/9RgonE806J— FOX Sports Argentina (@FOXSportsArg) November 21, 2018After the match, Icardi sent a clear aggressive message to the former Argentina players who rejected him back in the day.“Beyond the goal I scored today, I have to say that I am very happy. Happy for these six matches, for all the players,” said Mauro via Diario Ole.“We gave our absolute best in order to grow and put something beautiful together. I am also very happy because we could finish this year with a victory.”“We are all very happy with Leo (Scaloni), Walter (Samuel), Pablo (Aimar), and the rest of the technical staff. After this, the final decision will come from up top.”“A goal was something I was missing. Fortunately, it finally happened. It makes me very happy as well, I feel very excited because I was waiting for this moment to come.”“I feel very happy with the work that this team has been doing and everything we put together. Not being able to score is terrible for a striker, I had been waiting for this because the people talked a lot of smack about it and I hope I can keep going like this.”Match Preview: Barcelona vs Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Is derby time in La Liga, as Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou Stadium tonight at 21:00 (CET).“I honestly feel very important here, with my club as well. If I can wear the number ‘9’ in the National Team is because of what I do with my club, this is exactly what I wanted,” he added.#SelecciónMayor ¡Final del primer tiempo! @Argentina vence 1-0 a @miseleccionmx.

Any team wants to have the best on their side,” he continued.“We hope that he can be with us next year and we expect him to help us during the Copa America. We all felt really comfortable, we have a very nice thing going here.”“I actually lived the previous process and there wasn’t as much companionship or friendship as today. When I came for the first time, the feeling was very different.”“You can feel it here, we are all very young and everybody wants the best for the group. Before, this feeling wasn’t here with all the more experienced players.”“Today everybody is coming from the bottom and they all want things to go well with the technical staff and the teammates. Having that feeling is always a plus. Representing your country is the most beautiful feeling ever.”“We are all young players who are looking to build something for the National Team, that is exactly what we are all looking for. In the past, there were a lot of experienced players who needed to give everything to win and prove themselves.”“Today that feeling is changed, it’s gone. It’s a pity that they weren’t able to win a final, but today we all start from scratch and we made a drastic turn. The pressure is less significant,” he concluded.#SelecciónMayor ¡Ganó @Argentina!

It is during the middle and high school years of children – perhaps more than ever – that mothers play a decisive role in their kids’ everyday lives as well as experience a hectic schedule in their own lives, says the study. “Taking care of infants and toddlers is physically exhausting. But as the kids approach puberty, the challenges of parenting are far more complex, and the stakes of ‘things going wrong’ are far greater,” said Suniya Luthar, a professor from Arizona State University in US. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The children during this stage struggle to negotiate some major challenges like dealing with puberty and all that this implies – hormones, acne and changing bodies. They also have to cope with transition to a relatively impersonal school environment, where academic grades are much more public, the researchers said.Mothers, who are deeply interested in the well being of their children, also go through trying times when children deal with such issues. Concerns about kids’ risky behaviours escalate sharply at their early adolescence, the findings revealed. Mothers who are essentially the ‘first responders’ to the children’s distress, in trying to figure out how best to offer comfort and reassurance to their children’ often get hurt, as the old ways – hugs, loving words and bedtime stories – no longer work, Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflixthe study said.The rejection from the same child, who was unequivocally adored just a few years earlier, can hurt deeply.In addition, citing other studies, the researchers showed that mothers of early adolescents are likely to experience their own developmental challenges as they begin to recognise declines in physical abilities, cognitive functioning and increased awareness of mortality. The researchers studied more than 2,200 mostly well-educated mothers with children ranging from infants to adults and examined multiple aspects of mothers’ personal well being, parenting and perceptions of their children. When considering disturbances in mothers’ own adjustment, the study showed “an inverted V shape in feelings of stress and depression, with mothers of middle school children (aged 12 to 14 years) consistently faring the most poorly and mothers of infants and adult children doing the best, the findings showed.The study suggests information dissemination to mothers in their earlier years of parenting so that they get to know what is in store for them as well as providing ongoing support for the mothers whose children start middle school.“It is not enough simply to educate the mothers about the teenage years, they must be ‘refueled’ themselves as they shepherd their children through this often tumultuous time,” Luthar said.The paper was published in the journal Developmental Psychology.
