Amputees maintain 6th position

first_imgGhana maintained its position as the 6th best nation in the world and best in Africa in amputee football in spite of a 0-2 loss to England in a play-off at the 31st Amputee Football World Cup in Kaliningrad, Russia.A visibly demoralized Black Challenge squad, apparently affected by their inability to make it to the semi finals, managed to hold the British throughout the first half of the match, stopping them from scoring till the half came to an end.The second half was characterized by some drizzles that made the weather chilling but that did not deter the team from continuing to hold their opponents who are one of the best in Europe. However, some lapses, coupled with some fouls on the blind side of the referees, led to two goals that sealed the game for the Europeans.The scorer of one of the goals used the crutches to trap the ball before scoring but this happened at the blind side of the referee. The second goal followed with about five minutes to go and the Ghanaians knew at that moment that it was all over.In the remaining minutes, the game degenerated into rough tackles with two players, one from each side, earning a yellow card from one of the referees.Though the Black Challenge failed to make it to the semis, they take consolation in the fact that they maintained their position as the 6th best in the world and still the best in Africa. The semi finalists, Uzbekistan, Russia, Turkey and Argentina, were the same countries that made it to the same stage at the last world cup in Argentina in 2010.Hosts, Russia play defending champions Uzbekistan in the finals as the latter seek to take the cup for keeps after winning the last two competitions in Turkey and Argentina in 2008 and 2010 respectively.Uzbekistan beat Argentina 4-0 whilst Russia disposed off Turkey 3-0 in the semis, setting the stage for the finals on Sunday.In another development, Mr. Francis Adjetey Sowah, President of the Ghana Amputee Football Federation (GAFF) and the Amputee Football Federation of Africa (AFFA) could not win the election for the position of the 2nd Vice President of the World Amputee Football Federation (WAFF) at the congress held alongside the competition.Mr. Sowah, who lost to his Japanese counterpart, is being considered for a position on one of the committees of the Federation.last_img read more

Liverpool restore five-point lead at Chelsea, Man Utd beaten by West Ham

first_imgThe Red Devils have now won just one of their last five Premier League games and have not won away from home since Solskjaer was handed the role as manager on a permanent basis in March.United were toothless in attack without the injured Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial and also lost Marcus Rashford to injury in the second half.“We didn’t create enough chances but we created big chances, some big moments that we didn’t take,” said Solskjaer.“The attitude and desire is there. That’s not the problem. It’s the quality in our decision-making and sometimes in the execution.”West Ham took full advantage to further their claims to a top-six finish this season as Felipe Anderson fed Yarmolenko to fire into the bottom corner a minute before half-time.Lukasz Fabianski made one brilliant save to deny Harry Maguire an equaliser from close range.But the hosts made the game safe thanks to stand-in left-back Cresswell’s stunning free-kick six minutes from time.– Ten-man Arsenal dig deep –Only Arsenal’s late rally prevented West Ham ending the day in the top four as the Gunners bounced back from a nightmare first half to edge a five-goal thriller against Villa.John McGinn put the visitors in front at the Emirates before Ainsley Maitland-Niles was sent off before the break for two yellow cards.Nicolas Pepe’s penalty briefly brought Arsenal level before Wesley restored Villa’s lead.Share on: WhatsApp Fabinho’s 50th matchLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Liverpool moved back five points clear at the top of the Premier League with a 2-1 win at Chelsea on another miserable day for Manchester United as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men lost to West Ham on Sunday.United are already 10 points behind the leaders after just six games, as Liverpool continue to set a relentless pace, and next face Arsenal, who came from a goal and a man down to beat Aston Villa 3-2 at the Emirates.At Stamford Bridge, Jurgen Klopp’s men stretched their Premier League winning run to 15 games thanks to two well-worked set-pieces in the first half-hour.Trent Alexander-Arnold curled brilliantly into the top corner after Mohamed Salah flicked a free-kick into his path to open the scoring.Chelsea were then denied an equaliser scored by Cesar Azpilicueta by a VAR review for offside against Mason Mount.Frank Lampard is still to win at home in four matches as Chelsea boss, but his side continued to press the European champions with Adrian stopping Tammy Abraham when the in-form striker was clean through on goal.Chelsea’s defensive deficiencies were shown up again, though, as Roberto Firmino was afforded a simple header from Andy Robertson’s cross to make it 2-0.“We are only six matches in,” said Klopp as Liverpool look to end a 30-year drought to win the league.“We have to be ready for each opponent. They are all waiting and want to give us a knock, rightly so but we have to be ready to do what we have to do.”Lampard’s men did finally get some reward for a vibrant performance when N’Golo Kante skipped through midfield and curled beautifully beyond Adrian, but Liverpool held on to extend their advantage over Manchester City once more.“Performance wise we were the better team,” said Lampard. “We had more energy in our game, character and spirit. That’s why the crowd applauded at the end. Let’s take this forward.”– Toothless Man Utd –United’s stuttering start to the season continued as two brilliant finishes from Andriy Yarmolenko and Aaron Cresswell earned West Ham a 2-0 victory at the London Stadium.last_img read more

Dupont: from ‘marked’ to key in Madrid’s isolation

first_imgREALMADRID.COM & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>REALMADRID.COM (DAILY AS) In nine months, Grégory Dupont (Valenciennes, France, 05-09-1972) has already gone through several stages at Real Madrid. Signed in July at the express request of Zidane to replace Antonio Pintus (the Italian’s relationship with Zizou was very deteriorated), he arrived with the guarantee of having won the World Cup as a physical trainer in France but with the Incognito of how they were going to curdle their methods in a locker room accustomed to Pintus; happened to be highly questioned at the start of the preseason due to the plague of muscle injuries; recovered a lot of credit when Madrid picked up cruising speed in late 2019 and early 2020 and in this break forced by the coronavirus crisis It has become the key to keeping the insole in the best possible shape while the insulation lasts.The scientist, As Dupont is known for his obsession with the data and statistics of each player he has under his command (“I am an investigator,” he has stated on more than one occasion), he landed at Real Madrid from the French team with the World Cup under arm as cover letter. Les bleus They conquered the title exhibiting a marvelous physical condition thanks to Dupont’s libretto. But in Chamartín the shadow of Antonio Pintus was long. The Italian coach, whose split with Zidane caused his departure to Inter, had feeling with a squad that proved first hand that his recipe was a guarantee of success (with him two Champions were won on the staff). Dupont’s preseason was demanding and took its toll at the beginning of the season. The medical reports for muscle injuries began to recur (seven in two months) and that put the French physical trainer in focus, although Zidane’s confidence in him remained intact. Little by little, Madrid began to take bottom, muscle injuries subsided and Dupont gained the backing of the dressing room, already more accustomed to his guidelines. He used the postponement of the Classic to design a mini preseason that filled the template tank. Players that the previous season were on target due to their low fitness as Varane, Kroos, Modric or Isco were revitalized and matches such as the Super Cup final, where Madrid reached penalties without collapsing, showed that physical preparation was in good hands.With Dupont free of suspicions, this coronavirus-obliged break came, in which he has become the key player in keeping the squad in tune telematically. The Frenchman designed a specific individual plan for each player and is in permanent contact with each of them, receiving all the data and statistics provided by the technology that each footballer has at home. Depending on them, it varies some routines. Now Dupont is the cable he has plugged into the Real Madrid locker room.last_img read more

Scuffles at J.C. Howard Cemetery

first_imgDecoration Day, set aside by Legislation to remember the dead by cleaning up their burial places, instead ended in a disgraceful graveside fight yesterday at the J.C. Howard Cemetery in the Voker Mission Community, Paynesville outside Monrovia.More than 200 people watched in shocked silence as a lady identified as Theresa Fallah, publicly authorized her family members to open a vault and remove a casket concealed in it. She was backed by a group of people who hurled insults at the Paynesville City Corporation (PCC).  Mr. William Dolo, chairman of Voker community, also vented his anger against the PCC, claiming that “although the cemetery is full (surpassing its capacity), PCC workers continue to ignore it, and collect money to bury bodies here. They even remove bodies from their graves and bury others in their places.”At one stage, many in the aggrieved group attempted to attack a man identified only as “Solo”, said to be an employee of the PCC.  Many of them claimed that Solo collects money on behalf of the PCC to have bodies buried at the already overcrowded cemetery. Solo, however, escaped from his pursuers and went into hiding.  The Daily Observer learned that the commotion started when Mrs. Fallah and her family went to the cemetery to clean-up their mother’s grave and upon their arrival they noticed a new paint mark on the tomb, signifying that someone had buried another person in the same tomb that their mother had occupied since 2010.  Mrs. Fallah later realized that a casket believed to have contained the remains of her mother had been removed and dumped outside the vault and she therefore asked her family to remove the ‘new’ casket buried in her mother’s vault. Minutes after Mrs. Fallah and her family took the decision, she, in an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer, expressed their frustration: “You can see my mother’s casket lying outside there and she was buried here since 2010. Every year all of us children come here to clean her grave.”  She said when they made the discovery; she reported the incident to community chairman Dolo, who advised her.   As a result she took the action to rebury her mother’s remains.Mrs. Fallah said she decided to remove the new plastering on the vault when she discovered her mother’s name on the tombstone.When the Daily Observer contacted chairman Dolo, he blamed the PCC supervisor assigned at the cemetery.“I’m in tears with those who are weeping.  Since 1984 I have been living here and such a thing has never happened before,” he said.“Things have gradually gone out of our hands, regarding the grave desecration in this community.“You can see dead bodies lying all around the area. PCC is responsible, because their people are assigned here daily. They take care of the place; we don’t have anyone in the community assigned with them,” Dolo complained. “In February we communicated with the PCC authorities, but nothing has been done in that direction. So we are appealing to government to have the place fenced and closed,” Dolo said.  Meanwhile, a PCC official denied the PCC workers are responsible for the desecration of the graves and asked residents to meet with PCC officials about their concerns.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

City, Chelsea lock horns in Community Shield

first_imgThe game, likely to be played in sizzling summer temperatures in London, is set to feature various youngsters and fringe players as World Cup stars ease their way back into club action.But whatever the line-ups, there are plenty of talking points and the game will be closely watched for clues as domestic football reclaims centre stage just three weeks after the World Cup final in Russia.Can Manchester City pick up where they left off last season or will they have a serious challenger?Will new manager Maurizio Sarri be able to revive FA Cup winners Chelsea, who finished fifth last season after winning the title the previous year under Antonio Conte?Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri speaks to the press ahead of the Community Shield match against Manchester City © AFP / Daniel LEAL-OLIVASOne question for City fans is how manager Pep Guardiola will deploy Riyad Mahrez — the only significant addition to their already-impressive list of forward options during the summer transfer window.The manager has confirmed his record £60 million ($78 million) signing is in contention to start the match after he was forced off during last weekend’s final match of the US pre-season tour against Bayern Munich.“Mahrez is good. He had a little bit of pain but he trained day before yesterday — I think so (he can play on Sunday),” said Guardiola, who twice outwitted Sarri in the Champions League last season when the Italian was managing Napoli.Most of the players who were on duty at the World Cup have now returned to training but Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne are still on their post-Russia breaks.The City manager also revealed how much he was looking forward to locking horns with Sarri, who replaced Conte last month.“I am happy that he is here in the Premier League,” Guardiola said. “I will learn a lot to see his team every weekend. I saw three games — he gets it, the team in a short time plays like he wants.“I think it will be a good game, always Chelsea is a big rival. Antonio was, Maurizio will be too. The style of play will be perfect for English football.”Guardiola admitted the match comes at a tricky time without his full complement of players but said City were prepared and would target their fifth Community Shield win. Both sides have four victories apiece in the fixture.– Courtois speculation –For Chelsea, Cesc Fabregas is a doubt with a minor knee injury.And France World Cup winners N’Golo Kante and Olivier Giroud, Belgium trio Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Michy Batshuayi, plus England’s Gary Cahill, are yet to return following the World Cup.Sarri suggested a similar side to the one that featured in pre-season would play at Wembley, meaning 17-year-old Callum Hudson-Odoi could be included.The 59-year-old is eager to do well but he acknowledges the size of the task against the Premier League champions.Sarri, who has not won a trophy in his career, said: “The match for us is very difficult for one reason: they have worked all together for two years. We started two and a half weeks ago.“I want to win, because it’s very important to have immediately a trophy. But in this moment of the season it’s very important, the performance.”There has been speculation in the past few weeks over a number of Chelsea’s most high-profile players, with goalkeeper Courtois and midfielders Willian and Hazard all linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge.Sarri said he was confident that Brazil playmaker Willian would remain at the club but was less sure over the future of Courtois.City face Arsenal away on August 12 in a high-profile start to their Premier League title defence while Chelsea have an away trip to Huddersfield the previous day.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester City players celebrate their 2018 Premier League title © AFP/File / Paul ELLISLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 4 – Manchester City take on Chelsea in Sunday’s Community Shield — the traditional curtainraiser to the English season — but the Wembley showpiece will offer few clues as to the destination of the Premier League title.The glorified friendly between the league champions and the FA Cup winners has been a notoriously poor predictor of success in recent years — no winner has gone on to be crowned champions in the same season since Manchester United in 2010-11.last_img read more
