Paul Pogba later scored the winning goal in the 81st minute, and goal-line technology was used to confirm the ball had crossed the line after bouncing down off the crossbar.“I’m not going to complain about the use of video today,” France coach Didier Deschamps said. “It helped correct a mistake.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownPogba had been unimpressive until the goal, but the Manchester United midfielder set up a 1-2 with substitute Olivier Giroud and beat Australia goalkeeper Mat Ryan to give France the victory.Australia captain Mile Jedinak had briefly equalized from the penalty spot in the 62nd after France defender Samuel Umtiti handled the ball in the area.

After checking images of a tackle from behind by Joshua Risdon on Griezmann, referee Andres Cunha pointed to the penalty spot.“When I received the knock I believed there was a penalty,” Griezmann said. “The referee did not bow his whistle, so I moved on with that. But when he went to see if there was a penalty I immediately thought about how I would take it.”Griezmann hit a powerful shot that left Ryan stranded, four minutes before Jedinak then sent France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris the wrong way to put the teams level following Umtiti’s clumsy foul.France had controlled possession and circulated the ball well before the interval, but after four shots in the first eight minutes the French failed to get a single shot on target in the remainder of the first half.GROUP DYNAMICSADVERTISEMENT It’s the ideal start for France, whose ambition is to finish at the top of a group that also includes Peru and Denmark. A win against the South Americans next would allow France coach Didier Deschamps to rotate his players for the final game.Australia, whose goal is to survive the group stage, will need two good results to escape elimination.KEY TO SUCCESSThe French did not impress in the final third of the field and their defense often looked shaky.Umtiti made a clumsy mistake when he jumped to clear a ball with both arms raised and touched the ball with his hand to concede a penalty. But the French showed guts to secure the three points with a good pressing toward the end.Australia delivered a gritty display that bodes well for its next two matches. The team’s defense is solid and they were unlucky in the end. They also have a skillful and inspired playmaker in Aaron Mooy.SUPER SUBSGiroud and midfielder Blaise Matuidi had a big impact after coming in as substitutes during the second half.Giroud delivered the assist that led to Pogba’s goal and Matuidi added some strength and pace in midfield after France looked bereft of ideas in that sector for long spells.MBAPPE THE YOUNGEST MOST READ Messi misses penalty, Iceland holds Argentina to 1-1 draw China population now over 1.4 billion as birthrate falls Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Now that there is little doubt about the existence of Ebola as it continues to claim more lives with thousands of confirmed, suspected and probable cases across the sub-region, authorities in Nimba County have halted daily marketing activities that take marketers from one town to the other.It is customary for sellers in rural areas in Liberia to attend market days during the week in designated towns.Marketers board trucks with their goods either in the early morning hours to get to market on time, or leave a day to in advance to sleep in the town in order to sell the next day.With the rapid rise in the Ebola death toll, however, the City Mayor of Sanniquellie, Mary Gonlepah, last week warned marketers via community radio stations not to go to Sanniquellie market until otherwise ordered.Mayor Gonlepah said it was her personal view that the virus gets transmitted through bodily contact; and the convergence of people in such a manner as “market day” has the propensity to spread the virus exponentially.“This is not to say people should not travel to Sanniquellie or marketing activity is totally stopped. We do not want marketers sit together on vehicles to come to the Saturday market as had been done in the past until the Ebola crisis subsides,” Mayor Gonlepah explained.At the same time, the City Mayor of Bahn (another town in Nimba), Angie Dopoe, has stopped the Wednesday market of that municipality, warning that any group going there for marketing purpose will face the consequences.In Saclepea, marketers residing there only go to the daily market, but people, without caution from the city authority, have resolved to stay away from the larger Tuesday market. As Ebola rages, many people are fearful and have taken precautionary measures of their own volition.In fact, marketers there no longer gather in the market building situated along the Ganta highway, but spread outside where wide spaces are provided so that people do not touch one another during transactions.However, out of town marketers in Ganta are not content with the decision by the city mayors although the evidence is clear.According to a footwear seller, who spoke on the local community broadcaster, the decision is hampering them as most of them do not have selling spots in the Ganta Market.The seller, who was later joined by other callers on the radio, claim that the decision by the city mayors is preventing them from conducting their businesses, making it difficult for them to feed their families. They are, therefore, calling on the Nimba authorities to reconsider their decisions.Meanwhile, villagers in the county are not taking the Ebola awareness for granted, now that so many have died due to denial.Reports gathered from local villages indicate that before a stranger or even a citizen of a village who has been away can be accepted back in that village, he/she must undergo a 21-day observation period, a community-instigated quarantine, before being allowed to interact with the community.Nimbaians swallow grinded cassava root (otherwise known as Gaygba or GB) as their second staple food, and they use their hands to dip it into the sauce to swallow.This is done together with other family members or friends and they all use the same sauce to dip their GB (gaekpa or bayekpo), but because of the message that Ebola gets transmitted through bodily contact, this custom is now halted, and each individual is only entitled to his/her own sauce, each eating from his/her own bowl.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
…electronics, airline grievances top listThe Customer Affairs Unit (CAU) of the Competition and Consumer Affairs Commission (CCAC) has compiled 123 complaints in total for the months of January to March 2019, valuing $30,052,568, almost doubling figures when compared with those of last year for the same period.This is according to Consumer Affairs Officer, Feyona Austin-Paul who told Guyana Times that these high figures can be attributed to the fact that many persons are becoming more aware of their rights through the Commission.A report seen by this publication added, “The first quarter of 2019 saw an unusually high influx of complaints when compared to previous years”.The Unit received 39 complaints by the end of January 2019, which amounted to $16, 754,801. Last January, some 30 complaints were received which valued $9,133,892.The months of February and March saw 38 and 46 complaints respectively amounting to $5,553,101 and $7,744,666 in the same order.These 123 complaints received by the Commission represents a 62 per cent increase when compared to the same period last year.Moreover, they amounted to $30,052,568, an 18 per cent increase in value compared with 2018’s $25,495,011.When delved deeper, the quarterly statistical report shows that the electronics and airline industries concentrated the list, accounting for 48 per cent of complaints received for the period.“While the electronics industry has been a dominant area of complaint in previous years, the amount of complaints for the airline industry was primarily due to Fly Jamaica’s inability to refund affected consumers to date. The remaining categories within the top five (5) were auto industry, clothing and accessories and appliance,” the Unit explained.Nonetheless, the Consumer body boasted that it was able to successfully resolve 49.6 per cent of the complaints received which valued $17,801,799.Meanwhile, Fly Jamaica’s impending refund issue accounted for 44 per cent of the ongoing complaints. They are expected to be refunded by July 1, 2019. The remaining percentage of unresolved complaints were referred to the CCAC’s Board for a hearing.Moreover, the report said, “Of the 61 complaints resolved, suppliers were liable for a substantial 77 per cent, with an accumulated value of $9,120,440. The remaining 23 per cent were as a result of either consumer liability or no liability (undetermined or consumer chose to no longer pursue the case)”.

Pep Guardiola’s free-scoring City, who have already beaten seventh-place Liverpool and defending champions Chelsea, host Stoke City, looking to add to an impressive haul of 22 goals so far.Here are five things to look out for in the Premier League this weekend:Mourinho, Klopp forced to juggleMourinho and Klopp exchange opinions at Old Trafford. PHOTO/SKY.Mourinho and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp must both juggle their resources for Saturday’s early kick-off at Anfield following injuries to key players.United are without midfielder Paul Pogba, who has been out of action for several weeks with a hamstring injury, and the muscular Marouane Fellaini is also missing.It means a likely start for last year’s club player of the year Ander Herrera alongside Nemanja Matic.For his part, Klopp, whose side trail United by seven points, has to do without forward Sadio Mane, who picked up a hamstring injury on international duty with Senegal.“I think we are a better team (than we were),” Mourinho told Sky Sports.“You can say, like some people do, we have not played one of the top five teams, but last season we did not beat West Ham at home, last season we did not beat Everton at home or Southampton away.”Arsenal’s quiet resurgence“I think politically something will happen in the next 12 months to regulate and limit the transfer amount,” Wenger said in comments published by British newspapers SaturdayMuch of the focus in the season’s early weeks has been on the free-scoring Manchester clubs, but Arsenal have been going about their business with quiet efficiency since their 4-0 mauling by Liverpool in late August.Despite uncertainty over the futures of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, they have knuckled down to win three of their past four league matches, with the exception being a hard-fought 0-0 draw at champions Chelsea.Wenger conceded on Thursday he may have no option but to sell Sanchez and Ozil in the January transfer window.The pair are both out of contract at the end of the season and are yet to agree new deals.“It is possible,” Wenger told a press conference ahead of his side’s trip to Watford on Saturday. “Once you’re in our kind of situation, we have envisaged every solution.”Can Palace finally score?England winger Andros Townsend in action for Crystal Palace during their Premier League defeat to Burnley on September 10, 2017Champions Chelsea would not be Crystal Palace’s chosen opponents as Roy Hodgson’s beleaguered team attempt to break their embarrassing scoring duck at Selhurst Park.The south London side are the only team in Europe’s top 20 leagues not to have notched a single goal, with seven defeats in seven matches.They have already lost one manager in Frank de Boer and Hodgson has so far been unable to stop their slide.Palace are rooted to the bottom of the table with a goal difference of -17, already five points adrift of safety.Kane on fireTottenham Hotspur’s striker Harry Kane celebrates after scoring during the UEFA Champions League football match against Apoel FC and at the GSP Stadium in the Cypriot capital, Nicosia on September 26, 2017Harry Kane’s recent goal-scoring exploits are frightening.The Tottenham striker, the only English player on the 30-name Ballon d’Or shortlist, has found the back of the net 15 times in his past 10 games for club and country.Manager Mauricio Pochettino, who describes Kane as one of the best strikers in the world, says he is sometimes lost for words.“It’s so difficult to talk every three days about Harry Kane and find different words to describe him,” Pochettino said after his side’s ruthless 4-0 win against Huddersfield Town.“He is fantastic and for me he is so great in front of goal, but when we don’t have the ball he also runs and fights and works hard for the team.”Can Everton turn the corner?Everton’s English striker Wayne Rooney (C) celebrates scoring the opening goal during the English Premier League football match between Everton and Stoke City at Goodison Park in Liverpool, north west England on August 12, 2017After a busy close season in the transfer market, Everton were tipped by some to upset the established order at the top of the Premier League.But the loss of Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United has outweighed the acquisition of the likes of Wayne Rooney and Gylfi Sigurdsson and Ronald Koeman’s team find themselves just two points above the drop zone.Everton travel to Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday.FixturesSaturday (1400 GMT unless otherwise stated):Burnley v West Ham,

Manchester United have shaken off a tendency to draw matches they should be winningLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 13 – Jose Mourinho takes high-flying Manchester United to Liverpool for a searching test of their title credentials this weekend as the Premier League returns with a bang after the international break.United are level with Manchester City at the top of the table on 19 points, trailing their neighbours on goal difference, but have not yet faced any of their major rivals.
0Shares0000Alexis Sanchez has been a rare bright spark during Manchester United’s troubled pre-season © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 8 – Manchester United need Alexis Sanchez to fire when they kick off their Premier League campaign against Leicester City on Friday as they seek to put a troubled pre-season behind them.United’s build-up to the new campaign has been dominated by manager Jose Mourinho’s persistent grumbles over the strength of his squad. Unlike most of Mourinho’s stars, Sanchez had a first full summer off in nine years as Chile failed to qualify for the World Cup, ensuring he should be fresh enough to show why United handed him a contract reportedly worth a potential £25 million ($32 million) a year in January.In his first six months at Old Trafford, Sanchez was a pale imitation of the player who dazzled at Arsenal.The Chilean scored just three times in 18 games as United ended the season without a trophy. Despite finishing second in the Premier League they were a painful 19 points adrift of local rivals Manchester City.Mourinho has bemoaned United’s lack of transfer activity, criticised captain Antonio Valencia’s physical condition and been involved in a standoff with Anthony Martial over the length of the Frenchman’s absence to attend the birth of his second child.But at least Sanchez has given him cause for optimism, scoring against Real Madrid and AC Milan in glamour friendlies, showing the drive, determination and decisiveness of old.Pale imitation: Alexis Sanchez scored just three goals in 18 games after joining Manchester United in January © AFP / Ian KINGTONMourinho even defended Sanchez after the forward cut a frustrated figure in Manchester United’s 4-1 defeat by Liverpool in a friendly in the United States.The manager made withering comments on the standard of United’s youngsters that contrasted starkly with the encouraging words City boss Pep Guardiola and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp have had for their own young players.“Do you want him to be very happy with the players he has around him?” said Mourinho.“Alexis is the only attacking player we have. We don’t have wingers, we don’t have strikers. He’s the only one who is here, and the poor man is there trying his best, with the frustration of somebody that wants more.”Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford have since returned from their World Cup exertions but both are unlikely to be fit enough for 90 minutes against Leicester, possibly leaving Sanchez as the focal point of United’s attack.World Cup winner Paul Pogba is also unlikely to be fit for the game at Old Trafford.From his first weeks in Manchester, Mourinho insisted Sanchez’s struggles would be forgotten when he hit the ground running after a full pre-season under his belt.“I think this was a chance that we didn’t want to lose and we made it. But we don’t believe a lot in the winter market and for sure next season it will be better for him,” Mourinho said after beating City to his signature.“Next season, after pre-season, after being comfortable and adapted, he’s going to be great for us.”While many of his teammates have been publicly questioned by their manager, Mourinho has so far been fiercely loyal to one of his marquee signings.The pressure is on Sanchez to repay that faith to put a long-awaited smile back on the Portuguese boss’s face.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)

ANIMAL WELFARE officers who found a lamb was hanging from a tree in Co Donegal have ruled out the possibility that it was killed by a bird of prey.They believe the animal died as a result of an act of cruelty.Donegal Pet Rescue were shocked at the discovery earlier this week in the Lurgybrack area of Letterkenny. Claims that it may have died as a result of being picked up and then dropped by an eagle or other bird of prey have been ruled out however; there were no markings on the animal to suggest that.Donegal Pet Rescue has made no apology for publishing the picture of their gruesome find which was made after a tip-off from a member of the public.And they insisted: “It is necessary to highlight the level of cruelty going on across the country.”© 2012 donegaldaily.com, all Rights Reserved The copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.
