Russia 2018: Paul Pogba’s late goal breaks Australia’s resistance

Paul Pogba’s late goal broke Australian resistance to give France a winning start in a Group C after they had earlier benefitted from a controversial VAR decision to score the game’s opening goal.

The video assistant referee penalised Australia’s Josh Risdon for a foul on Antoine Griezmann, allowing the Atletico Madrid forward to dispatch a penalty, the first World Cup goal influenced by VAR.

However, a moment of madness from French defender Samuel Umtiti, who handled Aaron Mooy’s free-kick, enabled Australia to equalise through Mile Jedinak’s penalty in Kazan.

And they looked on course to hold one of the pre-tournament favourites until Pogba’s lobbed effort deflected off Australia full-back Aziz Behich and the crossbar to fall inches over the goal-line.

Amid the large clusters of gold provided by around 10,000 Socceroos supporters, France initially assumed control of this Group C opener despite the long journey from their Moscow training base.

Kylian Mbappe sparkled early on, racing beyond the Australia backline to test goalkeeper Mat Ryan after 93 seconds.

That sparked a concerted offensive by Didier Deschamps’ team but Australia stemmed the tide as the half progressed.

Going behind stirred Australia into a response in the second period and Aston Villa’s Jedinak converted a penalty Umtiti had senselessly handled another dangerous Mooy delivery.

But Pogba’s winner, confirmed by goal-line technology, ensured France opened the tournament with three points.

New Mo Salah Statue Not Impressing Fans on Social Media

Published

on

Here’s something juicy from the sporting world and it’s brought to you courtesy of Anttention Fresh News. Now this is the question on everyone’s mind, Is the Liverpool star’s statue even worse than the ones of Ronaldo and Maradona?
The Liverpool and Egypt striker’s trademark celebration has been captured in a bronze bust that was unveiled in his homeland at the weekend.
Created by Egyptian sculptor Mai Abdel Allah, the Salah statue was revealed at the World Youth Forum, in Sharm el-Sheikh, Anttention Media Fresh reports.
Speaking of her inspiration for the statue, Abdel Allah told al-Masry al-Youm newspaper (via the Egypt Independent) that she was inspired by the Liverpool forward’s open-arm celebrations after scoring goals. She added,
“I found it is distinguished and executable”
The sculptor also explained that Salah stands as a symbol of excellence in life for his country’s youth.
The statue has since been compared to Cristiano Ronaldo’s famous sculpture by Emanuel Santos, it was criticised as not resembling the Portuguese ace.
Social media has been rife with reaction to the statue, with some even suggesting that Salah looked more like the 1970s musicians Leo Sayer and Art Garfunkel, the character Marv Merchants from the Home Alone movies, and cartoon characters Beavis and Butt-Head.
Here we take a look at Twitter’s funniest reactions to the statue.

The sculptor has since responded to criticism of the statue saying,
“When I started the statue, I did not think it would be for the youth forum or for the exhibition. I started it on the Facebook page and I explained the steps and steps to define who has the talent and the desire to learn sculpture”
“The important thing is that the statue came out in the end, as you can see. I am not angry and I do not feel remorse, because I have done what can be done, not shorter, and negative comments will not frustrate me”
She added,
“I hope that people will learn the art of criticising politely and respectfully, because some may not be critical. I am thankful for God and I bear the criticism”

Nigeria: Delta State Polytechnic STUDENTS RAISE ALARM OVER MANAGEMENT EXTORTION

Story by Ikechukwu Chuks Celestine

Students of Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwashi-uku have raised alarm over a recent memo raised by the management of the institution, saying the payable is too much and outrightly uncalled for considering the current economy situation in the country. The memo contains some amount payable as part of requirements for clearance process before meeting up the one-year mandatory national youth service corp(for those in Higher National Diploma).

Speaking collectively with pressmen, the affected students that comprise both ND and HND finals, said paying a whooping thirty-four thousand (N34,000) for clearance in this present economic situation is way too much and costly, adding that the inclusion of endowment/eligibility fee of N10,000(which we don’t even know what it means)is totally unacceptable and unheard of. They also showed their dissatisfactions on the recent increase in collection of original certificate fee and statement of result which the management put at N12,000 and N5000 respectively so as to fulfill the requirements for collection of their certificate and also the increment of convocation fee from 3,500 to 6,000.

The essence of the management demanding for payment for the certificate when it is very glaring that the said certificate won’t be ready for the students at that particular time of the clearance is still yet to be ascertained. This also coincide with the recent payment of 3000 cash by new intakes as part of their screening fee after paying acceptance fee and some students were eventually screened out. This is not to talk of the fine for late payment of School fees of 10,000 and so many others. They, however, appeal to the State Governor, Senator (Dr) Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa and every good people in the state, to quickly come to their aid and review the fees in a bid to make them more affordable for both the graduate and all the entire students of the school….
