Pots 2 to 4 are determined by the club coefficient rankings.No team can play a club from their own association, with the exact draw procedure to be confirmed before the ceremony.The draw also establishes the groups for the UEFA Champions League path of the UEFA Youth League. TOTTENHAM are bracing themselves for being paired with one of European football’s giants in the draw for the Champions League group stages.Spurs stunned Europe by marching through to the final of the competition last season, only to be beaten by Liverpool in Madrid.2 Tottenham were given a lesson by Lionel Messi last season and could be paired with Barcelona in the Champions League again this time roundCredit: Getty Images – GettyBut it is back to the drawing board now for Mauricio Pochettino’s side as they wait to discover who they will get in today’s draw in Monaco.Their run last season has seen them boost their Uefa ranking, meaning they are seeded in Pot Two when the balls are picked out at 5pm.But it also means Spurs are guaranteed to be paired with one of the big sides in Pot One – other than Liverpool, Manchester City or Chelsea, with teams from the same country unable to face each other at this stage.That leaves five possible opponents in the shape of Barcelona, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain or Zenit St Petersburg.They were grouped with Barcelona last season, and were handed a Lionel Messi lesson at Wembley in the first game before drawing against a seriously under-strength team in the Nou Camp.Pot Three is a mixed bag, but Pochettino would surely prefer to avoid the likes of Inter Milan or Valencia if at all possible.Antonio Conte is expected to deliver a much improved Inter this season compared to the one Spurs faced last year, especially after signing Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez this summer.Tottenham’s Nightmare DrawBarcelonaTottenhamInter MilanRB LipzigTottenham’s Ideal DrawZenitTottenhamBrugeLille ACCA WITH LADBROKES Pick up a whole load of acca features to help you land the big onelast_img read more

‘Coaches Appointment Right Direction,’ JNJ

first_imgThe appointments of former Lone Star players as managers for national soccer teams is the right step for their progress, veteran coach Josiah N. Johnson said in a release yesterday.The man known as Masayo, who in the 1960s played alongside midfielder Philip Robinson, George Sackor and Garretson Sackor, appealed to the newly appointed coaches, including James Salinsa Debbah, Kervin Sebwe, Thomas Kojo, Janjay Jacobs, Oliver Makar and Christopher Wreh to reflect on what made them successful as footballers.“They must then apply their experience to their duties,” Masayo said.He reminded the newly appointed coaches that during his playing days, “We did not wait until there was a competition before training for it.”He said, “Two days in every week were chosen for Lone Star training and after each training coaches and players would be taken to dine at a restaurant.”He said test matches were regular and advanced training for coaches and players abroad were provided by the Liberian government, along with the LFA.He noted that the administration of Mr. Musa Hassan Bility means well for Liberian football and hoped that former celebrated star James Salinsa Debbah and the rest of his friends would receive the fullest cooperation from the Liberian government.“Coach Debbah and his colleagues have tremendous tasks to perform and we need to give them our financial and our usual moral support,” Masayo said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Sierra Leone’s Anti-Corruption Commission Gets Tough on Use of Ebola Funds

first_imgSierra Leone’s Anti-Corruption Commission has launched early investigations into corruption allegations of the misapplication of funds intended for Ebola containment and eradication in that neighboring country.The investigation by the anti-corruption commission was incited by audit reports that millions of US dollars were disbursed to key personnel of Sierra Leone’s health institutions and local officials of government, leaving accountability in question.In pursuit of the facts, the commission has invited 40 persons, including medical and local officials to appear before it to answer questions about how the funds were used.  Some of those connected to the allegations are said to be senior government officials.They are asked to bring with them supporting documents verifying the amounts they received and expended to help fight the Ebola virus.The amount in question, according to the audit report, is 84 billion Leones equivalent to £12 million, and is part of taxpayers’ money allocated between May and October 2014 to fight the Ebola virus that has devastated Sierra Leone like it hit its two neighbors, Liberia and Guinea.Reports indicate that some of the money was disbursed to individual medical practitioners instead of institutions and there are no vouchers or receipts backing some spending claimed to have been made.The report goes further to indict the head of the Health for All Coalition, Charles Mambu as receiving six cheques made out to him instead of the organization.Government spokesperson, Abdulai Bayraytay in reaction to the allegations said the Government of Sierra Leone is taking the issue seriously and will ensure that anyone connected to the mismanagement of Ebola funds must be prosecuted and punished under the law, if found guilty.The government spokesperson, who described Ebola fund as “Blood money” is quoted as saying that President Ernest Bai Koroma takes the issue seriously, and that even senior government official caught in the saga will not be spared from punishment prescribed by law.“We will support all the institutions that continue to bring accountability to the government,” he said.How and when will Liberia accountfor massive Ebola Funding?Like Sierra Leone, Liberia has been gravely affected by the Ebola virus and international communities, governments, individuals and institutions donated enormous amounts of materials and money to fight the virus.It may be recalled that during the heat of the virus, Finance and Development Planning Minister, Amara Konneh warned that anyone who eats Ebola money will be prosecuted and punished.Not much is known about how the government and its Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) are planning to hold stakeholders accountable for the materials and money that poured into the country during the heat of the Ebola crisis.There were outcries that patients in ETUs were not receiving needed treatments while health workers over time have complained about not being paid their hazard benefits.In one Civil Society Organization Ebola Task Force meeting in Monrovia, it was reported that county officials and others whom money was disbursed to refused to state the amount they received or how they spent the money.The CSO wishes to know the exact amounts received in order to compare figures with what government and others claim to have received and what the amounts were spent on.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

2 AFL Soldiers Become Certified Pilots

first_imgThe two AFL trained pilots are 2nd Lieutenants Jerreck Jeff Dwanah, Jr., and Varney A. Sieleaf Two officers of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL), 2nd Lieutenants Jerreck Jeff Dwanah, Jr., and Varney A. Sirleaf,  have been trained as the first post-war certified commercial pilots as they were winged on yesterday at the Nigerian Air Force Headquarters in Abuja, an AFL release has said.According to the release, the winging ceremony climaxed two and half years of training at the Nigerian International Aviation College in Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria.Upon their return to Liberia, the two officers will pioneer the establishment of the Liberia Air Wing.The Minister of National Defense, retired Major General Daniel Dee Ziankahn, Jr., extended gratitude on behalf of the Commander-in-Chief of the AFL President George Weah and lauded the people and Government of Nigeria for the many sacrifices they continue to make in resuscitating Liberia to a peaceful country after a 14-year civil crisis.Ziankahn acknowledged the role Nigerian government played in the restructuring process of the post-war AFL, which saw the seconding of two of its Major Generals, the late Maj/Gen Luka N. Yusu and the late Maj/Gen Suraj A. Abdurrahman, who served subsequently as Command Officer-in-Charge of the AFL during its re-branding process and progressively brought the AFL to where it is as a professional army dubbed a “Force for Good.”Minister Ziankahn hailed the long-standing bilateral ties between Liberia and Nigeria that resulted to the promotion of cultural, diplomatic and military relationships.“We are humbly soliciting for the training of air and ground crew when the Liberia Air Wing is eventually established. We will require your support, guidance and mentor-ship to establish and operate the Liberia Air Wing,” Minister Ziankahn said.It can be recalled that on August 23, 2007, the Governments of Liberia and Nigeria signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for military-to-military relations to rebuild the professional development of the AFL.In the MoU, the two officers were part of eight cadets that departed Liberia in 2007 to undergo a four-year regular combatant degree course at the prestigious Nigerian Defense Academy, Kaduna.They commenced their pilot training at the Nigerian Air Force 301 Flying Training School in Kaduna, following their graduation as members of 60th Regular Course from the Nigerian Defense Academy in September, 2013.Upon completion of their training, the Liberian government appealed for further training. This appeal subsequently saw their enrollment at the Nigerian International Aviation College in IIorin, Kwara State.According to the 2008 New Defense Act, section 5.1, the Liberia Air Wing, when activated, will undertake search and rescue missions; provide limited air transportation for the movement of troops and logistics for the AFL; undertake medical evacuation; undertake limited marine patrol over Liberia’s Exclusive Economic Zone and assist those ministries and agencies in times of emergency and natural or man-made disasters, as well as assist in evacuation and logistics movement.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

The newcomers traded their bulky gear for more comfortable jumpsuits and spoke to well-wishers at Mission Control via a video link. “The fun is just about to begin,” Yurchikhin said.

MOSCOW – An American astronaut climbed aboard the International Space Station on Friday for a stint as its first female commander after a two-day trip from Earth and a textbook docking. Peggy Whitson, cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko and Malaysian physician Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor scooted through hatches linking the station with the Soyuz TMA-11 craft they rode into orbit from Russia’s launch facility in Kazakhstan. The Soyuz docked on schedule at 10:50 a.m. EDT after catching up with the station and firing thrusters to get into position, said Valery Lyndin, chief spokesman for Russian Mission Control outside Moscow. “Everything is great,” Malenchenko told Mission Control shortly after the ship locked onto the station about 220 miles over Central Asia. A commentator with the U.S. space agency NASA called the docking “flawless.” last_img read more

Trent Alexander-Arnold watch: How did the youngster do on his World Cup debut?

first_imgAlexander-Arnold’s improving crosses were causing more problems on 34 minutes – this time with a corner from the left – but Ruben Loftus-Cheek headed just wide of the goal.The Red Devils had the better of the latter stages of the first-half and Alexander-Arnold was guilty of losing his man but Hazard was unable to take advantage of a ball that fell to him in the box. Had it been the other Hazard (Eden), it may have been a different story.He was also the victim of a fine piece of skill from Mousa Dembele which led to some some ironic cheers from the Kaliningrad Stadium crowd.It was a decent first-half from Alexander-Arnold who earned plenty of praise on Twitter for his display. Both managers made multiple changes for this game safe in the knowledge that their sides were already through to the knockout stages.One player Gareth Soutgate gave the nod to was Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold as the 19-year-old made just his second start for the England senior squad.But how did Alexander-Arnold perform throughout the match in Kaliningrad?talkSPORT.com cast an expert eye over Liverpool right-back Alexander-Arnold, and you can see his performance analysed below… Trent Alexander-Arnold’s been England’s best player in this first half.— Emma Sanders (@em_sandy) June 28, 2018The second-half saw Januzaj give Belgium the lead with a wonderful curling strike from the right.Moments later, Alexander-Arnold had a chance to level the game with a free-kick in a dangerous area and Liverpool fans will remember the goal he scored during their Champions League qualifying game at Hoffenheim in August 2017.However, there was no luck from the dead ball this time as Alexander-Arnold disappointingly launched his free-kick straight at the wall.And Alexander-Arnold’s level really dropped after that delivering a number of bad balls and this attracted plenty of criticism on social media. 3 3 It was a big night for Alexander-Arnold who was making his World Cup debut Alexander-Arnold’s corners make me miss Kane’s corners from Euro 2016— Simply (@Simply_Spurs) June 28, 2018 3 Alexander-Arnold was put against the potentially dangerous Thorgan Hazard and made a steady start despite some early Belgium pressure.However, the Liverpool youngster came alive on 13 minutes when the ball was played down the line and the right-back delivered a searching cross into the box but Jamie Vardy was unable to fully get on the end of it.On 26 minutes, Alexander-Arnold was needed desperately at the back – clearing Marouane Fellaini’s goalbound effort the ball off the line expertly following a Belgian set piece.The youngster found yet more joy down that wing as Hazard showed an unwillingness to do his defensive duties and Alexander-Arnold’s menacing cross nearly dropped all the way into the net but the ball did not dip quite enough. England will play Colombia in the last 16 of the 2018 World Cup after they lost 1-0 to Belgium in their final group game.A lovely strike from Adnan Januzaj early in the second-half was the only goal of the game as the Red Devils face Japan in their last 16 match. Obvious positives are Alexander-Arnold and Rose, who is surely pushing Young to start in the round of 16. #eng— Henry Winter (@henrywinter) June 28, 2018 Trent Alexander Arnold has been absolutely dreadful. Looked suspect in defence and his corners haven’t even got past the first man— WILL BRAY © (@willsbray01) June 28, 2018 Januzaj cut inside before brilliantly bending the ball into the top corner Alexander-Arnold was given the job of marking Thorgan Hazard – brother of Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard Trent Alexander-Arnold has the delivery skills of a postman….who is on strike!Get him off the corners.— Yonny1975 (@Yonny1975) June 28, 2018The game somewhat passed the youngster by late in the game and Alexander-Arnold was replaced by Danny Welbeck in the 79th minute as England searched for an equaliser.Overall, Alexander-Arnold gave a reasonable account of himself. He did not look out of place in the slightest in the first-half, however, he will be disappointed with his performance after the break as well as his inability to produce consistently good deliveries from set pieces.He has played better in a Liverpool shirt so will perhaps feel he could have hurt the Belgian back line more effectively in the game.It’s unlikely he will start in the Three Lions’ next game as first choice right-back Kieran Trippier has been outstanding so far.last_img read more

first_imgAnother year, another training camp, another NFL season for the indomitable Frank Gore.A 2005 draft choice of the 49ers, Gore doesn’t predate leather helmets.

But he knows where, and isn’t shy about his post-football plans.“I’m going to be a Niner, you know,” Gore told Florida’s Sun-Sentinel last …last_img read more
