He has scored six goals (Messi –31–, Cristiano –25– and Suarez –8– are the only active players who have done so many rojiblancos). Simeone’s are also one of his fetishes: only Sevilla (7) has scored more.Their goals are decisive: has marked the Simeone in the three recent European finals. In the 2014 Champions League final, a legendary header in the 93rd minute in Lisbon opened the doors to Madrid for the extension that led to the Tenth. Two years later, in Milan, he scored the first goal of the game and then scored the fourth of the penalty shootout. And in the 2018 Super Cup in Tallinn he scored from the eleven meters the goal of 2-1, although then Atleti would end up taking the title in extra time.

Almost 50 of them died from sickness and starvation.“To the Aleut people interned at Funter Bay and their descendants, who continue to carry this burden, I am sorry,” Kuhns said.Here to receive the apology was Anthony Merculief, a 78-year-old survivor.Merculief was sent to Funter Bay as a toddler, so he doesn’t remember details from the three-year internment. But the experience has stayed with him.“It has an effect on you when you’re treated the way we were treated,” Merculief said. “It never wears off.”Still, Merculief said he accepts the apology. To him, the most important thing is to continue healing and keep this history alive.“The suffering we went through, how many people died because of the poor conditions … hopefully, it’ll never be repeated,” Merculief said.That’s why Merculief is glad his grandniece is at the apology ceremony.Leah Lekanof, 15, said the commemoration has motivated her to learn more about what her people endured.“When I get home, I’m going to ask my grandma about it more and my uncle,” Lekanof said.For now, though, Lekanof said she’s happy to watch her great-uncle Anthony as he received an official letter of apology.“I saw him smile so hard, in a way I haven’t seen in a long time,” Lekanofsaid. “I was just so happy to him smile.”last_img read more
