first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Chelsea moved back into the Premier League top four as goals from Olivier Giroud, Ross Barkley and a Willian penalty earned a 3-0 win over Watford.Manchester United’s thumping of Bournemouth earlier on Saturday had seen them leapfrog the Blues, but Frank Lampard’s side responded with a comfortable victory at Stamford Bridge. Lampard made four changes to the side that lost at West Ham in midweek, with Marcos Alonso and Antonio Rudiger among those dropped after their roles in the defeat, while Giroud returned to lead the line.It was the Frenchman who had the game’s first real chance on 19 minutes, but his low shot was kept out by an excellent block from Ben Foster.However, there was little the Hornets keeper could do about his next effort 10 minutes later as the forward steered cutely into the far corner to open the scoring, after incisive passes from Mason Mount and Ross Barkley.The visitors had given away several cheap free-kicks on the edge of their own box that Chelsea failed to punish, with Willian, Mount and Giroud all producing disappointing set-piece efforts.But when Etienne Capoue went a step further, steaming in to make a rash challenge on Christian Pulisic inside the box, Willian gladly accepted the invitation to double the lead from twelve yards with another cool penalty. The second half was a largely drab affair, Watford seemingly disheartened by gifting the Blues a second so close to the interval and the hosts happy enough to stroke the ball around.Still, Foster had to be alert to push a Willian curler round the post while Craig Dawson attempted to prey on the home side’s much-discussed set-piece weakness at the other end, but headed over.Barkley finally gave the scoreline the gloss in deserved in stoppage time with a powerful finish from Cesar Azpilicueta’s cut-back.Tags: ChelseaManchester UnitedOlivier GiroudRoss BarkleyWillianlast_img read more

first_img Hull goalkeeper Allan McGregor was sent off for bundling into Mo Diame in the area, with Noble tucking away the resulting penalty to put West Ham ahead at Upton Park. But the visitors responded well and levelled through Nikica Jelavic early in the second half before a James Chester own goal proved enough to give the Hammers their first Barclays Premier League win in four matches. Hull, who have injury concerns over McGregor after he spent the night in hospital having suffered kidney damage in the collision with Diame, have fallen below West Ham following the defeat. Steve Harper came off the bench to take on glove duties and the club confirmed on Thursday that fellow goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic has been recalled from a loan spell at Leyton Orient. Hull captain Curtis Davies was left ruing a good performance that yielded no points but took solace from the fact the Hull fans have yet to show dissatisfaction at the players this year. “You don’t need to be at your best to win games. The main stat at the end of the day is three points,” Davies said. “We can get some plaudits for the way we played and get a pat on the back, that is good because we can take something into the Stoke game. “It is tough to take but it is strange at this place [Upton Park] that they came away with a 2-1 win and got booed off the pitch. At least we aren’t in that situation.” Press Association Manager Sam Allardyce, who raised his hand to cup his ear as boos rang around the stadium at full-time, said after the 2-1 victory that he had never seen a team receive a negative response after winning what was a pivotal game. Midfielder Noble wants to see the club fighting on a united front. “I appreciate that we did not play our best football and that, at times, it wasn’t pretty,” he said. “More than anyone, I am keen to get the ball down and play, but sometimes it just doesn’t happen for you as a team and as individuals, no matter how hard you try. “Although it wasn’t our best performance, we did not fall short on effort and that has been a consistent theme during our recent upturn in form. On behalf of all of the players, I can say that your support really can make a difference. “We will always perform better when we are feeling relaxed and comfortable – as you would in any job – and I must admit the anxiety from the stands can spill onto the pitch and get into our minds, as much as we try to ignore it. “When that happens, some players can be affected and they make mistakes that they would not normally make. I think you could see that in our performance last night as we made mistakes we would not normally make and didn’t retain the ball as well as we have done in previous games. “For that reason, I would ask that you give your backing to the boys because I can tell you that we are giving 100 per cent for the shirt and 100 per cent for West Ham United.” Mark Noble has called on West Ham supporters to get behind the team after a section of them jeered the Hammers following their win over 10-man Hull on Wednesday night.last_img read more

first_imgFew outside the north African kingdom had heard of the 24-year-old striker before the mid January kick-off of the biennial tournament restricted to footballers playing in their country of birth.Now, most African football followers from Cairo to Cape Town know El Kaabi, the 1.82-metre goalmouth predator who has scored a record eight goals in a single edition of the CHAN.Despite starting only two of three group games, the Moroccan equalled the five-goal benchmark set by Zambian Given Singuluma in the Ivory Coast nine years ago.He then raised the bar by opening the scoring in a quarter-final victory over Namibia and bagged a brace as Morocco overcame Libya after extra time to reach the final.His amazing haul came just a year after he scoring 25 goals in 33 matches as Racing Casablanca won promotion to the first division.Those scoring exploits caught the attention of top-flight outfit Renaissance Berkane, who signed El Kaabi and have been rewarded by 11 goals from him in 17 matches.Before the fifth CHAN began, most of the talk around the Moroccan attack centred on Achraf Bencharki, the leading scorer for 2017 CAF Champions League winners Wydad Casablanca.But Saudi Arabia-bound Bencharki, who joins Al Hilal after the CHAN, has been continually overshadowed by El Kaabi.“Ayoub is the complete striker, a fantastic footballer,” Bencharki told AFP. “With him in the team, defeating Nigeria and winning the CHAN is a realistic goal.”Midfielder Walid el Karti weighed in: “El Kaabi is such a humble footballer and a great team person. He remains grounded after individual feats, like his hat-trick against Guinea.”Morocco and Nigeria met in a 2014 CHAN quarter-final with the west Africans overturning a three-goal half-time deficit to triumph 4-3 after extra time in South Africa.Nigerian Rabiu Ali, at 37 the second oldest 2018 CHAN footballer, scored during that remarkable comeback and is a likely starter against Morocco at the Stade Mohammed V in Casablanca.His team-mates Anthony Okpotu and Gabriel Okechukwu could trouble the hosts with their huge physiques, pace and directness, which have already having yielded two goals each.Both finalists qualified with four victories and a draw and Nigeria appear capable of at least running Morocco close in a competition that has produced largely one-sided finals.The Democratic Republic of Congo won the 2009 and 2016 title deciders by margins of two and three goals, and Tunisia triumphed by three goals in 2011.Libya, the 2014 champions, were the exception, edging Ghana on penalties after a goalless final.

AFP PHOTOFT: Morocco  4  Nigeria 0Casablanca, Morocco | AFP |  Ayoub el Kaabi scored his ninth goal of the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) as Morocco became the first hosts to triumph by thrashing 10-man Nigeria 4-0 Sunday in a Casablanca downpour.With Nigeria in disarray and the match long over as a contest, the previously little known striker completed his record-extending goal haul by firing into the net from close range.Zakaria Hadraf put the home team ahead at Stade Mohammed V on the stroke of half-time and added the match-clinching third goal midway through the second half.In between the first goals of the tournament for Hadraf, fellow midfielder Mohamed el Karti netted soon after Nigerian attacker Eneji Moses was red-carded following a second caution.It was a record winning margin for a CHAN final, bettering the three-goal victories of Tunisia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.Morocco pocketed a record $1.25 million (about one million euros) having justified their pre-tournament role as favourites to win the fifth edition of the CHAN.Sudan performed best of the four previous host nations, finishing third. Rwanda made the quarter-finals and the Ivory Coast and South Africa exited after the first round.Morocco also became the first champions to win five of six matches — defeating Mauritania, Guinea, Namibia and Libya before overwhelming Nigeria.The only blemish was partly self inflicted as they fielded a virtual reserve side in a goalless draw with Sudan after both nations had secured last-eight places.El Kaabi had a goal disallowed and struck the woodwork before Hadraf sidefooted a cut-back between the legs of goalkeeper Oladele Ajiboye for a 45th-minute lead.After Moses had been sent off, Morocco took control and Nigeria fell apart with some comical defending contributing to their downfall.El Karti made it 2-0 just past the hour, Hadraf completed his brace three minutes later and player-of-the-tournament El Kaabi completed the rout with 73 minutes gone.#TotalCHAN2018 Tweets****MATCH PREVIEWMorocco’s El Kaabi wants to crown goal rush with CHAN titleCasablanca, Morocco | AFP |  Ayoub el Kaabi hopes to complete a meteoric rise from lower league to international football by helping hosts Morocco defeat Nigeria Sunday in the African Nations Championship (CHAN) final.

first_img…says 33 is clearly majority of 65…Charrandas Persaud allowed to vote against party listThe Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) on Tuesday threw out Government’s arguments and ruled that the No-Confidence Motion (NCM) that toppled it on December 21, 2018 was indeed validly passed.Charandass Persaud was vindicated by the CCJHanding down the decision was CCJ President, Justice Adrian Justice Saunders, who read a summary of the final judgement. Justice Saunders said that the Court found that 33, and not 34 as the Government and supporters have argued, was the majority the Opposition needed out of 65 Members of Parliament (MPs) to pass the motion.“The CCJ decided that the requirement for “a majority of all the elected members of the National Assembly”, referred to a majority of the total number of votes or seats in the Assembly, irrespective of the number of members who actually vote.”In determining that majority, he added, the Court was of the opinion that the “half plus one rule was not applicable”. Justice Saunders informed the courtroom and viewing public that the majority was clearly at least 33 votes.The CCJ also rejected arguments that former Alliance For Change (AFC) MP Charrandas Persaud was constrained from voting against his list, a major plank of the State’s case. Justice Saunders noted that nothing in the Constitution prevents a crossover vote and as such, his vote was and still is valid. The No-Confidence Motion, the CCJ decided, was validly passed.Meanwhile, Justice Saunders informed that CCJ Judge Maureen Ragnauth-Lee had made the observation in her concurring judgement that the Constitution has to be clear regarding Persaud being prevented from voting against his list. She did not believe, as the Government argued, that such a provision was implicit.On the matter of Persaud’s dual citizenship, Justice Saunders noted that the Court had decided that had the Government really wanted Persaud out of the National Assembly on those grounds, it would have challenged his presence on the candidate list and eligibility to enter the National Assembly long before the vote – in fact, within a month of the coalition’s victory in 2015.“Dual citizens are not allowed to put themselves up for candidacy in elections to the National Assembly. The Court found that the National Assembly (Validity of Elections) Act required that a petition alleging that Mr Persaud was disqualified from running for office would have had to be filed in the High Court of Guyana within 28 days after the publication of the results of the 2015 election.”“Since this case was filed in January 2019, the Court held that the challenge to Mr Persaud’s election to the Assembly had been out of time. The Court also rejected the submission that Mr Persaud was absolutely required to vote against the motion of no confidence along with other members of the Government,” Justice Saunders announced.When it comes to consequential orders, Justice Saunders noted that submissions would be heard in this regard on June 24, 2019.In the immediate aftermath of the vote, former Attorney General Anil Nandlall described the ruling as a triumph for the rule of law. On the other hand, Attorney General Basil Williams admitted that the CCJ “knocked them down” on every conceivable point.President’s responseMeanwhile, President David Granger, in a public address soon after the announcement from the CCJ, claimed to respect the ruling. On the other hand, Granger went back to the position that House-to-House Registration was still necessary, even though the activity would push elections back until after November 2019 and was advised against by the Guyana Elections Commission’s own legal adviser.“The Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission, Justice Patterson, has previously informed me that the Commission will be ready to hold elections in November 2019. This will be after the completion of House-to-House Registration. I now await a recommendation for a specific date from GECOM and I will then issue a proclamation,” Granger said.The list of electors, which was used as recently as the last Local Government Elections last year, only expired April month-end. Further, legal arguments are that a simple and less time-consuming claims and objections process can be embarked upon to update the list to ensure persons eligible to vote are registered. This was, however, ignored by the President in his address.Now that the motion has been validated, Article 106 (6) which states, “The Cabinet including the President shall resign if the Government is defeated by the vote of a majority of all the elected members of the National Assembly on a vote of confidence” will take effect, something which Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has been calling for since the passage of the motion on December 21, 2018.last_img read more

first_imgLee Carsley’s reign at Brentford started with a defeat as Birmingham ran out 2-0 winners at Griffin Park to move up to fifth.Carsley, who took the Bees hotseat earlier on Tuesday after Marinus Dijkhuizen was dismissed, was unable to install a change in fortunes at the west London club against one of his former sides.Two second-half goals from Michael Morrison and Clayton Donaldson ensured Birmingham picked up their first win in four league games and inflicted a fifth league defeat of the season on Brentford.Elsewhere, Fulham’s emphatic 4-0 over London rivals QPR on Friday seems a distant memory after Wolves comprehensively ran out 3-0 winners at Craven Cottage.The game’s turning point came when the Cottagers were deservedly reduced to 10 men after Tom Cairney’s two-footed lunge on Adam Le Fondre.Le Fondre then dusted himself off to open the scoring just before the hour mark, while Sheyi Ojo and a brilliant James Henry free kick completed the scoring as Wolves picked up their first away triumph since the first day of the season.

first_imgThe day of CAO offers is one of the most feared and anticipated for a Leaving Certificate student.By Caoimhe Ní ChathailDonegal Daily once again took the opportunity to talk to Gavin, Síofra, Shane and Martina. It seems that for them and for many of Donegal’s students, the future is very bright!Gavin:Gavin ‘didn’t run out of bed, just the usual routine.’ He was delighted to receive his number one CAO choice. He won’t be accepting it however as his plan is to study Mathematics and Computer Science in Queens, where his acceptance is now definite. Gavin chose the course as it gives him ‘a good platform to launch a number of potential careers’. Although he is nervous, Gavin is incredibly excited to begin!Síofra: Having woken up at 8, Síofra’s computer chose Monday of all days to do ‘the mother of all updates’ but finally the wait was over. ‘Today was (probably) the end of the long road that has brought me all over the emotional spectrum.’ Síofra ended up with two choices and though she mightn’t have been offered ‘the coveted “No 1″’, she is still delighted. Síofra will now go on to study Arts (English & History) in UCD; two subjects which have always fascinated her. In terms of her future career, Síofra explains that, ‘writing is always the end goal, though what route I’ll take, I’m not sure.’Shane:For Shane, ‘Everything went brilliantly.’ His celebrations had still been carrying on the night before and so waking up at 12 to an official offer for his first choice of Architecture in UCD was perfect. Shane chose the course because of his love for drawing and ‘creating an intelligent piece of useful art’. Having found Technical Drawing and Construction easy at school, Shane is really excited to begin his course. He also received a scholarship for accommodation subject to his promotion of the Irish language on campus.Martina:Describing herself as ‘not a morning person’, Martina didn’t wake up early but when she did, was delighted to find confirmation of an offer for her first choice of Arts in Galway. Martina’s plan is to become a French and Irish teacher following her degree. As a self-confessed ‘homebird’, Martina’s thoughts of college ‘are being met with trepidation’ but she hopes that as soon as she settles in she will find that all her nerves ‘will have been for nothing’. From Arts in Galway to Architecture in Dublin, the variety of courses accepted by Donegal students is vast. We wish all students the very best of luck as they look forward to the next few years of college and wish them all the best in the future![ENDS]CAO OFFERS: THROUGH THE EYES OF DONEGAL STUDENTS was last modified: August 20th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:CAO offersdonegalstudentslast_img read more
