Zambia Win After Tragedy

In 1994, the talented Zambian national side were devastated when their aircraft crashed into the sea off the coast of Gabon on their way to a World Cup Qualifier in Senegal. Everyone on board, including the legendary Chipolopolo forward Godfrey Chitalu, was killed.

The only surviving member of that fine side was the star player, Kalusha Bwalya, who had been travelling from Holland to rejoin his team-mates.

Bwalya, with support from the federation, rebuilt the side using young players from the domestic league and the diaspora. Remarkably, he managed to lead the newly-assembled team to victory in their postponed game against Morocco just a month after the accident.

Unfortunately, the team were unable to continue their momentum and, devastated by their losses, they failed to qualify for USA ’94.

Kalusha did lead the team to the final of the 1994 Cup of Nations tournament in Tunisia.

6. Ghana Beat the Czechs in Koln

Having lost their first-ever World Cup game 2-0 against Italy, Ghana faced the unenviable proposition of meeting the Czech Republic in Koln.

The Europeans were coming fresh off their third-place finish at Euro 2004 and a magnificent 3-0 victory over the United States in the opening game.

Ghana could have been forgiven for approaching such a fixture with trepidation.

Instead, they made an explosive start, Asamoah Gyan scoring after only two minutes. A team containing the likes of Pavel Nedved, Tomas Rosicky, Karel Poborsky and Petr Cech huffed and puffed for an equaliser, but none was forthcoming.

Their task was made harder by a 65th-minute red card for Tomas Ujfalusi (who had a poor evening all-round) and became impossible in the 82nd minute when Sulley Muntari doubled the Black Stars’ lead.

Ghana had struggled against the Italians but against the Czech Republic they looked composed, organised and, perhaps most importantly, carried a genuine attacking threat.

Most impressively, perhaps, was the fact that Ghana’s starting line-up that day was the youngest of all of the World Cup finalists. The Black Stars had an average age of 24 years and 203 days.

It was a watershed moment for the nation’s football.

5. Morocco 3-1 Portugal (1986)

Morocco’s first victory, in only their second appearance at the global high table, came in 1986 when they made it to the last 16.

This was the pinnacle achievement for an excellent Atlas Lions side that included Maghrebi luminaries such as Badou Zaki, Aziz Bouderbala and Abdelmajid Dolmy.

They topped a group containing England and Poland before unfortunately running up against finalists West Germany in the second round, losing to a late Lothar Matthaus goal.

Their finest hour game in their group game against Portugal; goals from Abderrazak Khairi and Krimau gave the North Africans a 3-1 victory over the Selecao.

3. Boateng vs. Boateng (2010)

When Ghana and Germany met in the group stage of the 2010 tournament, the meeting was notable for the presence of two brothers. While siblings have played on the same side in past editions of the tournament, this was the first occasion in the competition’s history that brothers have competed on opposing sides.

It could have all been so different, as both Jerome and Kevin-Prince starred for Germany’s youth teams as younger men.

While the defender opted to stick with the European side in his later career, the attacking midfielder decided to represent that land of his father and threw his hat into the ring with the Black Stars.

Germany got the better of Ghana thanks to Ozil 60th minutes strike.

2. Song unwanted World Cup Record

Do you know that Rigobert Song and Zinedine Zidane have one thing in common?

The two are the only players to have been sent off in two different World Cup tournaments. While Zidane has won one tournament and made the final of another, this dire disciplinary record is Song’s sole legacy on the world stage.

In 1994, he received a straight red in the latter stages of Cameroon’s 3-0 defeat against Brazil.
Four years later, he was dismissed for two bookable offences during the Indomitable Lions’ 1-1 draw with Chile.

Song played for the Cameroon national team between 1993 and 2010.
Later went on to coach the national team as a caretaker but currently the coach of the Cameroon U-23 national team.

1. The 2010 Opening Ceremony

Its improper to look at Africa’s Most Memorable WORLD CUP Moments without starting with Africa hosting the world Cup for the 1st time.

The opening ceremony of the 2010 World Cup, the first on African soil will be the kick off of today’s episode.

There were 94,000 in attendance at Soccer City in Johannesburg as South Africa’s much-anticipated World Cup finally kicked off.

Highlights of the 40-minute ceremony included a five-plane military fly-past, troupes of drummers and dancers, a giant beetle and an amazing map of the African continent.

Finally, the World Cup had arrived on African soil.

The ceremony involved 1500 performers, including Thandiswa Mazwai, Timothy Moloi, Hugh Masekela, Khaled, Femi Kuti, Osibisa, R. Kelly, TKZee, Hip Hop Pantsula and the Soweto Gospel Choir.

It wasn’t a good day for the late Nelson Mandela who lost his great-granddaughter, who was killed in a car crash earlier in that day.

The former president wasn’t present at the ceremony but a pre-recorded message appeared on the stadium screens instead.

Dignitaries from 4 organizations and 24 countries attended the event, which included 20 heads of state and 18 eminent persons.
Then FIFA President Sepp Blatter and the then South African president Jacob Zuma and other South Africa delegates were around to watch the historic moment.

It was one of Africa glamorous moments in the World Cup history.

Though host country South Africa didn’t go past the group stages, they would never forget they hosted the World Cup for the 1st time in Africa history.

Rodgers hopes Klopp doesn’t repeat his Liverpool title near-miss

Brendan Rodgers hopes the current Liverpool team do not have to go through what he and his Reds side did in 2014 by narrowly missing out on the Premier League title.

‘They’ve clearly been consistently the best team,’ Rodgers said on presenter Eamonn Holmes’ podcast Eamonn and the Gaffers. ‘The level that they’ve been playing at, the quality – they’ve just been absolutely fantastic.

‘So it would be an absolute shame if they don’t get the chance to to lift the title.

‘They’ve been waiting so, so long – they’re deserving of it. But Jurgen will be like everyone, hoping that we can get back playing but obviously in a safe environment.

‘It just wasn’t to be for us and of course you have moments where you think back to that season. We were so close, and it would have been brilliant for us to have done it. But it wasn’t to be so you just have to to move on.’

There will be a Premier League meeting on Friday with the aim on how to resume the remaining nine match rounds during the summer.

‘Project Restart’ aims at getting players back into training in three weeks ahead of a June 8 restart.

However plans by the government to extend the lockdown into June, as well as uncertainty surrounding if players’ feel they can safely play means a resumption in the 2019-20 still looks a long way off.

*Liverpool FC Statement*

As a club, we are aware of and disappointed by comments attributed to Mayor Joe Anderson in a media interview which was published today.

As well as a lack of evidence to support such claims, we would also point to recent discussions with Mayor Anderson relating to the possibility of any behind-closed-doors football, which concluded that it is important that key stakeholders across the city continue to engage and work collaboratively.

In recent weeks, we have engaged with supporters’ groups who have informed us of their determination to respect social distancing measures and, in the event of a resumption of football being announced, we would continue to work with them and other key stakeholders in keeping with our collective desire to achieve this crucial objective.

As part of our ongoing operations, we are in regular contact with the Mayor and his office and we hope these conversations can continue.

In the meantime, our primary focus remains responding to the humanitarian crisis which continues to unfold and in particular providing ongoing support to various NHS initiatives and those experiencing food poverty and social isolation.

Liverpool mayor calls for season to end as he fears fans will meet at Anfield

Liverpool mayor Joe Anderson has called for the Premier League season to end as fans congregating around Anfield would render the situation farcical.

He told BBC Sport: ‘Even if it was behind closed doors, there’d be many thousands of people who would turn up outside Anfield.

‘There’s not many people who would respect what we were saying and stay away from the ground, a lot of people would come to celebrate so I think it’s a non-starter.

‘I think it would be really difficult for the police to keep people apart and maintain social distancing if they were going to celebrate outside Anfield, it would be farcical.

‘The police are right to be concerned about that as we are here in the city, and public health officials are also concerned about that, so we’d ask the Premier League and government to take into account all of these concerns that we have.’

Anderson added: ‘I think the best thing to do is to actually end the season.

‘It isn’t just about Liverpool – they’ve clearly won the league – they deserve it, they should be crowned league champions.

‘The bottom line is, though, this is about health and safety and people’s lives and I think football should have to come second in regards to making a choice here.’

Rudiger wants Liverpool called champions and football season to end now

Antonio Rudiger believes Liverpool should be awarded the Premier League title and the season should be ended immediately amid the coronavirus pandemic.

‘Honestly, as far as I’m concerned they can give Liverpool the title,’ Rudiger told ZDF.

‘At the end of the day they deserve it, they’ve had a great season and are leading the table with, oh I don’t know how many points.

‘The thing is they were going to win the thing anyway, so I think the title is theirs ethically. Of course, I hope that the season can be finished and it will be sporting for everyone.

‘But, as I’ve said before if we continue to play and there is a danger, and we ignore that while people are dying somewhere in the world, I don’t know if that would sit right on my conscience.’

Arsenal defender Mari says Salah, Mane & Firmino are his toughest opponents

Arsenal defender Pablo Mari says that Liverpool’s front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are the toughest opponents he has ever faced.


Mari signed for Arsenal on loan in January after shining with Brazilian side Flamengo, having previously been on the books at Manchester City.

It was with Flamengo that Mari faced off with Liverpool’s trio of stars, with the Brazilian side meeting last season’s Champions League winners at the Club World Cup.

And, in an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit, Mari revealed that his battle with that trio was the toughest of his career.

“I think this moment was the three strikers of Liverpool! Salah, Mane and Firmino,” Mari said.

“It’s because of speed, intelligence and their characters. I think these things are most important and make them top players.”

Liverpool battled Flamengo in the finale of that competition, with the Brazilian side topping Al-Hilal in the semifinals to book their date with the Reds.

Mari and Flamengo held Liverpool quiet for all 90 minutes, but succumbed to a 99th-minute winner from Firmino as Jurgen Klopp’s side emerged as world champions.

“We think we played a really good game there and we know Liverpool in that moment was maybe the best club in the world. They won everything and they won every game in the league. They are a really strong team,” Mari said.

“But we had one thing that we thought we could beat them with and that was our mentality. We had nothing to lose and everything to win so we could put this mentality in the pitch to try and win against them.

“But it was proved that in one action you can lose the game. But I thought we were fighting really well against them.

“Of course it was a really difficult to play against the front three because you know they are fast, they are strong and they know every player and what to do and they have really good quality.

“Of course it was difficult but I was focused 100% in that game and I know it was a difficult game but I felt like I improved a lot in six months there playing in Flamengo so that I can play against Liverpool and these three players.

“My focus when I arrived in Flamengo was that we knew we would play against a club like Liverpool in this final and that if we improved a lot we could beat them.”

Mari made just two senior appearance for Arsenal before the Premier League season was suspended due to the coronavirus.

This act called ”SEX”

This act called “SEX” (Ladies corner).

So many women has attached great importance to the word “Sex”. Especially when it is for the wrong motives.

This is why most women would think that they had done so much for you after spreading their legs.

Do you know that, sex is the most cheapest commodity you can offer a man?.

Do you also know that, Sex is a valuable asset a woman can give to her husband?.

Now, read the 4th and 5th paragraph again to note the difference clearly.

Aside from this word “Sex”, most women are just empty.

Friends, have you imagined a world without Sex. I wonder how most women would survive.

What is the essence of your beauty when you lack common sense. It is just a beautiful nonsense.

85% of us (women) today will always indicate their breast, back side, or private part as their selling point. Only few can boost of her certificate, impacts, or standards in the sphere of life.

Prostitution is not when you stand on the road waiting for men.

Aunty, the worst prostitution is when you are servicing those uncles for money. All in the name of “Courtship”.

Yes, money is good. But, if you make it a priority in a relationship, then a Job is what you need to be paid for your time.

Do you know that, it is very easy to get a boo who owns a car. But, almost impossible to marry a man who owns a car?. Lolz

It is just like graduating from a world of fantasies to a world of realities. Ponder on this!

Why do you depend so much on your endowments from God as a bait for making money?.

Have you even taught about the circumstances?.

How long do you want to hide the truth from yourself and choose to become a victim?.

Don’t you think that you deserve the best?.

Or, do you wish to come to SHILOH 2020 crying for a life partner?.

Today is another opportunity to take a positive decision about your life. And, strive to become that woman her husband and the society will be proud of tomorrow.

Take up this challenge today and become a better version of yourself.

Marital vows should be the certificate for this “Act”.

Think again before you do.

For the ladies in the house when a friend come to tell you that her husband gives her 100k everyday . Hmmmmm…. tell her that your own husband gives you 200k everyday, changes your car every month and your wardrobe, does the chores, including the cooking at home. Let the lying competition begin. And watch her bend her face in shame and leave. Don’t give room for home breakers.
The foolish ones will start envying them, putting pressure on their own husband to start doing the same till the will push him into using their head for money ritual. Dont be fooled!

The irony of life

The Irony of life!
So suddenly:

New York
‘the city that never sleeps’
is now asleep,
all quiet.

Paris the
‘center of romance’
lives in echos.

Rome
‘the eternal city’
is deserted.

Disney is out of magic.

London is caged in silence,
the Queen speaks to her people from a hidden room.

Mecca is empty!
Nobody to
‘stone the devil’.

The Chinese wall is no longer a fortress.

The G8 nations are speechless.

The developed World suddenly on its knees.

Churches,
Mosques,
Great Parks,
Monuments,
Stadiums are filled with unfilled spaces.

Our Miracle
Pastors suddenly
Become so silent
That they dare not
Visit Hospitals
For healing.

The anointing oils
Are no longer effective.
Holy water becomes
Ordinary water.

Our pastors that
depended
On body guards
Now depend on
God Almighty alone.

The busiest places at present were hitherto the most dreaded:
Hospitals and
Cemeteries.

The famous Football Leagues,
the Fashion Shows,
Exotic Weddings,
Festivals all lost to memory.

Celebrities have run out of celebrations.
Our titles,
Status and
Privileged Positions are stale.

With all our boastful
‘citizenships’
we cannot step out of our houses.
With all our savings in gold and cash,
we can only buy food to eat and toilet papers to take care of the waste.

We usually went to watch animals in cages,
now animals roam our empty streets,
watching us in our ‘cages’.

With our expensive clothes and shoes,
our house clothes and pyjamas are the latest fashion.

AND despite all these ‘oddities’…
the World still goes on;
the sun still shines;
the birds still sing.

When this long night finally gets over and a new day sets in,
let us not forget the lesson of the long night –
that the only essential is LIFE, the rest are but dispensable prefixes and suffixes –
BUSY EMPTINESS.

ONLY GOD REMAINS THE MOST POWERFUL.

STILL ON COVID-19

ADDRESS BY H.E. MUHAMMADU BUHARI,
PRESIDENT OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA ON THE CUMULATIVE LOCKDOWN ORDER OF LAGOS AND OGUN STATES AS WELL AS THE FEDERAL CAPITAL TERRITORY ON COVID- 19 PANDEMIC
AT THE STATE HOUSE, ABUJA
MONDAY, 27th APRIL, 2020

1. Fellow Nigerians

2. I will start by commending you all for the resilience and patriotism that you have shown in our collective fight against the biggest health challenge of our generation.

3. As at yesterday, 26th April 2020, some three million confirmed cases of COVID nineteen have been recorded globally with about nine hundred thousand recoveries. Unfortunately, some two hundred thousand people have also diedpassed away as a result of this pandemic.

4. The health systems and economies of many nations continue to struggle as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

5. Nigeria continues to adopt and adapt to these new global realities on a daily basis. This evening, I will present the facts as they are and explain our plans for the coming month knowing fullyfully aware that some key variables and assumptions may change in the coming days or weeks.

6. Exactly two weeks ago, there were three hundred and twenty three confirmed cases in 20 States and the Federal Capital Territory.

7. As at this morning, Nigeria has recorded one thousand two hundred and seventy-three cases across 32 States and the FCT. Unfortunately, these casesthis includes 40 deathsfatalities.

8. I will useam using this opportunity to express our deepest condolences to the families of all Nigerians that have lost their lives loved ones as a result of the COVID nineteen Pandemic. This is our collective loss and we share in your grief.

9. Initial models predicted that Nigeria will record an estimated two thousand confirmed cases in the first month after the index case.

10. This means that despite the drastic increase in the number of confirmed cases recorded in the past two weeks, the measures we have put in place thus far have yielded positive outcomes against the projections.

11. The proportion of cases imported from other countries has reduced to only 19% of new cases, showing that our border closures yielded positive results. . These are mostly fellow Nigerians returning through our land borders. We will continue to enforce land border arrival protocols as part of the containment strategy.

12. Today, the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has accredited 15 laboratories across the country with an aggregate capacity to undertake 2,500 tests per day across the country.

13. Based on your feedback, Lagos the State Government and the FCT with support from NCDC is hasve established several sample collection centers in Lagos and the FCT. They are also reviewing their laboratory testing strategy to further increase the number of tests they can perform including the accreditation of selected private laboratories that meet the accreditation criteria.

14. Several new fully equipped treatment and isolation centres have been operationalised across the country thereby increasing bed capacity to about three thousand. At this point, I will commend the State Governors for the activation of State-level Emergency Operation Centres, establishment of new treatment centres and the delivery of aggressive risk communication strategies.

15. Over ten thousand healthcare workers have been trained. For their protection, additional personal protective equipment have been distributed to all the states. Although we have experienced logistical challenges, we remain committed to establish a solid supply chain process to ensure these heroic professionals are can work safely and are properly equipped.

16. In keeping with our Government’s promise to improve the welfare of healthcare workers, we have signed a memorandum of understanding on the provision of hazard allowances and other incentives with key health sector professional associations. We have also procured insurance cover for five thousand frontline health workers. At this point, I must commend the insurance sector for their support in achieving this within a short period of time.

17. Nigeria has also continued to receive support from the international community, multilateral agencies, the private sector and public-spirited individuals. This support has ensured that critical lifesaving equipment and materials, which have become scarce globally, are available for Nigeria through original equipment manufacturers and government-to-government processes.

18. The distribution and expansion of palliatives which I directed in my earlier broadcast is still on going in a transparent manner. I am mindful of the seeming frustration being faced by expectant citizens. I urge all potential beneficiaries to exercise patience as we continue to fine tune our logistical and distribution processes working with the State Governments.

18.19. I have directed the Central Bank of Nigeria and other financial institutions to make further plans and provisions for financial stimulus packages for small and medium scale enterprises. We recognise the critical role that they play in Nigeria’s economy.

19.20. Our Security Agencies continue to rise to the challenge posed by this unusual situation. While we feel deeply concerned about isolated security incidents involving hoodlums and miscreants, I want to assure all Nigerians that your safety and security remains our primary concern especially in these exceedingly difficult and uncertain times. As we focus on protecting lives and properties, we will not tolerate any human rights abuses by our security agencies. The few reported incidences are regrettableregrettable, and I want to assure you that the culprits will be brought to justice.

20. I urge all Nigerians to continue to cooperate and show understanding whenever they encounter security agents. Furthermore, for their protection, I have instructed the personnel of the security agencies be provided with the necessary personal protective equipment for their own protection.
21.

21.22. As we continue to streamline our response in the epicenters of Lagos and the FCT, I remain am concerned about the unfortunate developments in Kano in recent days. Although an in-depth investigation is still ongoing, we have decided to deploy additional Federal Government human, material and technical resources to strengthen and support the State Government’s efforts. We will commence implementation immediately.

22.23. In Kano, and indeed many of other States that are recording new cases, preliminary findings show that such cases are mostly from interstate travel and emerging community transmission.

23.24. Drawing from these, I implore all Nigerians to continue to adhere strictly to the advisories published by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control. These include rRegular hand washing, social physical distancing, wearing of face masks/coverings in public, avoidance of non-essential movement and travels and avoidance of large gatherings remain paramount.

24.25. Fellow Nigerians, for the past four weeks, most parts of our country have been under either Federal Government or State Government lockdowns. As I mentioned earlier, these steps were necessary and overall, have contributed to slowing down the spread of COVID nineteen in Nigeria.

25.26. However, such lock downs have also coame at a very heavy economic cost. Many of our citizens have lost their means of livelihoods. Many businesses have also shut down. No country can afford the full impact of a sustained lockdown while awaiting the development of vaccines or cures.

26.27. In my last address, I mentioned the Federal Government will develop strategies and policies that will protect lives while preserving livelihoods.

27.28. In these two weeks, the Federal and State Governments have jointly and collaboratively worked hard on thishow to balance the need to protect health while also preserving livelihoods, leveraging global best practice while keeping in mind our peculiar circumstances.

28.29. We looked atassessed how our factories, markets, traders and transporters can continue to function while at the same time respecting adhering to the NCDC guidelines on hygiene and social distancing.

29.30. We assessed how our children can continue to learn without compromising their health.

30.31. We reviewed how our farmers can safely plant and harvest in this rainy season to ensure our food security is not compromised. Furthermore, we also discussed how to safely transport food items from rural production areas to industrial processing zones and ultimately, to the key consumption centers.

31.32. Our goal was to develop implementable policies that will ensure our economy continues to function with while still maintaining our aggressive response to the COVID nineteen pandemic. These same difficult decisions are being faced by leaders around the world.

32.33.

Mourinho rate Ronaldo over messi

🇵🇹 #José _ Mourinho ” I don’t know anyone who tells me that Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t know how to play football, at 18 Cristiano was pure talent, he was a boy who just wanted to have fun with the ball in his feet, he dribbled all, even the referee himself!
.
WHAT IS NOT MISSING IN RONALDO IS TALENT
.
But Ronaldo realized he needed to mature
Doesn’t mean he lost the Talent…
just got older
.
At 21 he saw that with the Dribbles he wouldn’t win gold ball
went on to make a more mature football!
.
for me Ronaldo is the best player today
I don’t compare him or Messi
Because Ronaldo is such a good player that no matter who his colleagues are, Ronaldo will always shine
.
it’s like Ronaldo is a 4 x4
And Messi a Ferrari
.
Who doesn’t know by car will say that Ferrari is better
More who knows that 4 x4 is much better
.
puts the Ferrari running against the 4 x4 on a formula1 track.
Ferrari will win
plus the 4 x4 will finish the race
.
Now put the Ferrari running on a road full of sand, or a full of stones, or a full of snow!
Ferrari won’t even leave the place
.
What I’m saying is that Messi plays only in a style of play
The style that Barcelona has trained him since he was 11
.
Ronaldo is able to play in any style of play
That’s why Ronaldo is Ronaldo wherever he plays
.
Messi stop being Messi when he takes off Barcelona shirt!
.
To respect everything Ronaldo has done
regardless of the sweater you have on
.
Ronaldo is Ronaldo with 18 or 34
RONALDO IS RONALDO WITH SPORTING OR UNITED
Ronaldo is Ronaldo with real madrid or juventus
Ronaldo is Ronaldo in the swallow or in the selection
