Puerto Rico v Tunisia Preview | best plays of each team so far
''It has always been my dream to play for Barcelona, as a kid, one day. So when they were really serious about me and when they told me a plan I believed in then the choice was easy for me.
I think Holland and Barcelona have always had a great connection, of course because the philosolphy of Johan Cruyff, especially Ajanx and Barcelona, they want to play a similar way. And for me that's great of course.
I think it's normal when you move to a club like Barcelona there's a lot of competition. All the best players of the world are playing here so I think that's a normal thing, I just have to show on the field, on the training in the games, that I'm a good player and I deserve to be in the starting eleven and it's up to the coachwho is gonna play.''
''Of course, I'm really happy I'm going to play with him but I'm looking forward to playing with the whole squad. I think all the players really talented, not only Messi of course he's the best - but, yeah, we will see how it's gonna work out on the field, I think it's difficult to say something about it now''
DE JONG: FOOTBALLER IN BODY AND SOUL.
In mental means, and that's where it's most complicated, it's a game involving two teams who are disappointed at not playing the final. It's a final involving two teamswho were eliminated, so getting players motivated is not the same. We're missing the energizing dynamic of playinga semi-final to reach the final. That's the problem of this kind of game, trying to get the players motivated after a kind of disappointment that has left them a little listless.
We're taking things slowly, depending on how the troops are going, the state of the players. Yesterday we had training although it was more of a recovery session. Not everyone was able to participate, we'll review it later at noon, then later in the afternoon too.
On the players behaviour, attitude, state of mind, really, I have nothing to say about the approach they've had, and how they have responded to what has been asked of them. But in terms of taking stock of our campaign, I think we'll do that at a later date, but we can say we gace it everything in all our games.
I don't think anyone needs to get extra motivation for this game. We are all professional players and we need to want to win every game, even if it's a game about the 20th or 90th place. For me, I don't care, I would like to win every game. I think we are are in the same shape like Nigeria. It was a tough tournament, a tough long time, I think we don't need to complain about our shape because Nigeria is in the same shape, like the coach said earlier before, we've had recovery exercices, and I think we'll be as ready as possible for the game.

At the other part, the Madame Bouraoui Agrebi, is a civil society activist in the defense of persons with disabilities.
Bouraouia Agrebi, speaking about her activities as Defending persons with disabilities, during the World Day of Democracy:
In my question about the obstacles that they face in the media in order to be present and many of them are competent in this area, Boutraouia commented that the media is pressured by the editors and managers and that they consider that those persons with disabilities are second class. She adds that there is a complete absence of the training cycles in this area, although the Tunisian Organization for Persons with Disabilities does this training for journalists, but they do not want to deal with them for reasons that remain open for discussion.
"The media is pressured by the editors and managers and that they consider that those persons with disabilities are second class"
In my question about the obstacles that they face in the media in order to be present and many of them are competent in this area, I commented that the media is pressured by the editors and managers and that they consider that persons with disabilities are second class.
In 2007, the United Nations General Assembly decided to celebrate the Day International Day of Democracy (JID) on September 15 of each year for the purpose of promote and defend the principles of democracy. Everyone is invited to commemorate this day to increase public awareness of the issues democratic. It is an opportunity to re-examine the state of democracy in the world.
WHY CELEBRATE JID IN TUNISIA?
Since 2011, democratic progress has been undeniable. The spaces of freedom Tunisia has been honored with the Nobel Peace Prize, it has adopted a new constitution and organized a series of credible and democratic elections.
At the same time, decentralization is under way and must bring the State closer to citizens to provide them with better local services.
As democracy progresses in Tunisia, disappointment is palpable and frustrations
growing with respect to the transition, which is slow to produce these positive effects, especially on
the socio-economic plan. Disengagement and apathy are knocking on the door while the
legislative and presidential elections in 2019 are looming and that Tunisia is entering a
long process of decentralization.
The challenges to consolidate Tunisian democracy remain numerous. Nevertheless,
democratic gains are real but too often take a back seat. The JID is a
way to celebrate the progress made since 2011 and to celebrate DEMOCRACY together.
JID: WHAT OBJECTIVES?
Promote an open, inclusive and participatory debate on the state of democracy in Tunisia.
- Encourage citizen participation through the implementation of cultural actions,
artistic and educational activities around the themes of democracy.
- Celebrating democracy by bringing together the different components of society
Tunisia around common democratic values.
