Real Madrid 3-1 Liverpool: Brilliant Gareth Bale Wins Real Madrid The Champions League Trophy As Loris Karius Suffers Nightmare Performance

Featured Image

Real Madrid is once again kings of the Champions League. On Saturday night,  Real Madrid defeated Liverpool 3-1  to retain the trophy for the third consecutive year.

A very weird mistake form Liverpool; goalkeeper Loris Karius allowed Karim Benzema to score the opener early in the second half but Liverpool, who lost PFA Player of the Year Mohamed Salah to a shoulder injury in the first half, responded when Sadio Mane stabbed in from close range.

Then Gareth Bale produced a  baffling bicycle kick goal and a stunning shot from way outside the penalty box coupled with as another gaffe from the Liverpool goalkeeper ensured a third straight Champions League crown for Real Madrid.

It is the second time Real have won three European Cups in a row, having gone on to win five in succession from 1956, and only the fourth time it has happened in 63 years.

Real hasn’t lost a Champions League final since 1981, and they become the first team to win three in a row since Bayern Munich in the mid-70s.

More to come shortly.

#UCLFinal: Real Madrid Are UEFA Champions League Winners!

Featured Image

Real Madrid have won their third straight Champions League thanks to a moment of sublime brilliance from Gareth Bale coupled with an error from Liverpool’s goal keeper Loris Karius.

Bale came off the bench and scored a spectacular bicycle kick on the biggest stage as Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 to win their third successive Champions League title.

During the pre-match build-up, much was centred on the anticipated battle between star forwards Mohamed Salah and Cristiano Ronaldo in Kiev, but the duel was cut short before the half hour when Liverpool’s talisman suffered an apparent shoulder injury.

The 25-year-old landed awkwardly on his left shoulder after grappling with Sergio Ramos, while Ronaldo remained on the periphery throughout.

Karius gaffe gifted Karim Benzema the opener (51) before Sadio Mane scored for liverpool(55).

Bale delivered a moment befitting of the showpiece, his 64th-minute bicycle kick sealing a 13th European Cup for the Spanish giants and their fourth in five seasons.

Karius suffered further embarrassment when he let Bale’s late strike (83) from range slip through his gloves but though they competed gamely, crucial momentum was lost with Salah’s untimely exit and Klopp’s wait for a European trophy goes on.

Drake Fires Back at Pusha-T, Kanye West With Diss Track ‘Duppy Freestyle’

Featured Image

Pusha T released his new album “DAYTONA” on Friday and the seven-track Kanye West-produced effort is getting quite the reaction on social media (especially on Twitter) and not all of it are positive.

Keeping it tight at a compact 21 minutes, Pusha T wasted no bars, even taking aim at Drake on the track “Infrared” where he raps “Your hooks did it/The lyrics pennin’ equals to Trump’s winnin’/The bigger question is how the Russians did it/It was written like Nas but it came from Quentin.”

A punch line that apparently mocks Drake’s alleged use of a ghost writer – speaking of ghostwriter Quentin Miller, who has worked with Drake in the past.

West, who produced the album, also lends a verse on one of its tracks, titled ‘What Would Meek Do?’.

Apparently cheesed off following the major digs on Pusha T’s track “Infrared,” Drake swiftly dropped a reactionary diss track on SoundCloud, and Toronto’s finest has not held back at all.

Drake’s “Duppy Freestyle” opens with the line “I’m in shock. The nerve, the audacity” before lyrically assassinating the reputations of King Push and Kanye as well as addressing a three-year-old accusation that Quentin Miller is Drizzy’s ghostwriter.

“If you rebuke me for working with someone else on a couple of V’s, what do you really think of the nigga that’s making your beats?/I’ve done things for him, I thought that he never would need/Father had to stretch his hands out and get it for me.”

He later goes on to let Push know that he has an invoice coming for him with the lines, “It’s gonna be a cruel summer for you/I told Weezy and Baby ‘I’ma done him for you’/Tell ’Ye we gotta invoice coming to you/Considering that we just sold another 20 for you.”

Pusha T, provoked by the bars, then took to Twitter to ask Drake to send the invoice through.

Well it looks like Drake has kept that promise and created an invoice for $100,000 for the Virginia Beach rapper.

Death Toll Rises To 48 In Uganda Bus-Tractor Crash

Featured Image

Forty-eight people died after a bus smashed into a tractor driving with no lights at night and a truck in northern Uganda, a Red Cross spokeswoman said on Saturday, May 26, 2018.

Irene Nakasiita told AFP the victims of the late Friday crash included 16 children. The accident happened in Kiryandongo, about 220 kilometres (140 miles) north of the capital Kampala.

“Evacuation teams are working tirelessly to rescue the injured”, said Ugandan police spokeswoman Emilian Kayima, adding that all three drivers had died.

The accident happened on Friday night in Kiryandongo, about 220 kilometres (140 miles) north of the capital Kampala.

The bus collided first with the tractor before hitting a truck transporting beer.

Local media said the death toll exceeded 30.

Uganda has one of the worst records for road safety, due to the poor condition of vehicles and roads as well as dangerous driving.

More than 9,500 people died in a road accident in the country between 2015 and 2017, according to figures from the transport ministry, with the situation worsening each year.

PMB And OBJ: Two Overrated Citizens Of Nigeria

PMB And OBJ: Two Overrated Citizens Of Nigeria – Ademola Adeoye

CLICK here to read more opinion articles

Backtracking a little, a few days back, the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria jumped on a plane and travelled to Benue State to identify with those who were mourning, but the president was on the inside of the state’s house—being busy with some state matters—like entertaining his support group. Each time I hear from PMB’s mouth or I hear from a revered citizen of Nigeria that Mr. President loves Nigeria and Nigerians and I look at what he does sometimes, I always find it hard as diamond to believe that he truly loves those he was voted into office to serve.

This piece was written by Ademola Adeoye. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

I wonder the kind of people who’s advising Mr. President. They are being paid for doing almost nothing. It does not take rocket science and unusual knowledge (and wisdom) for President Buhari and his handlers to know that it was wrong for him to be in Abuja winning and dinning when Benue people and the entire country were mourning and protesting. If PMB does not know, he needs to be helped to know that he’s sending the wrong signals to Nigerians and the whole world.

Away from the issue that more or less made me cry to the one that makes me laugh hysterically. How do I mean? I am yet to see another two aged citizens—who continually overestimate themselves as His Excellency, Dr. Olusegun Obasanjo and His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari and it is not their slipup. Yes, it is not their fault. Whose slip is it? I am glad you ask. It is the fault of some Nigerians who derive joy from abandoning their country in the hands of a few—who do not care a hoot about them. It is the fault of many ever learning Nigerians, but are yet to understand what nation building is truly all about.

Each time PMB speaks, he speaks as if he is the only one who is stain-less in Nigeria and when OBJ speaks, he speaks as if he is the only wise one in Nigeria. I remember during one of his Presidential chats while in office and a man phoned in to advice him. While responding to the brilliant man—who phoned in—on that day, he said and I quote: “It is because I know more than you, this is why I am here…” Both in power and out of power, OBJ is not the type who listens to either advice or correction. And what he does not take from people, he wants everyone to receive from him.

A few days ago, after the only man many Nigerians are worshipping spoke on the man who died and the whole nation was rolling on the floor—praising and worshipping God, I swiftly went back to my archives to check whether Mr. President was right or wrong. And after a few hours, I was able to unearth that PMB was extremely wrong! While I understand that he is entitled to his own opinion as a citizen, but the truth is, it is wrong to attempt to rewrite history and I make bold to say that what is wrong is completely wrong.

PMB spoke about the man—painting a picture of a hero and a good man. Abacha was so good (as President Buhari did say) as a President that someone as Senator Bola Tinubu had to run for his life. While Mr. President was speaking profoundly about Abacha, I am sure someone as Tinubu (amongst other citizens who escaped through NADECO route) would open his mouth as river Jordan during raining season.

This is where I am coming: I am of the opinion that PMB and OBJ are fond of overestimating themselves. Take for instance, those who are telling PMB that he can win the coming Presidential election in the year 2019—without needing those who helped him some years back are lying and overestimating him just as they lied to and overestimated GEJ. If PMB was that popular, he wouldn’t have lost presidential elections thrice!

Dr. Olusegun Obasanjo was well positioned to completely change Nigeria, but he chose not to do so. I am sure whenever he is alone, he regrets it. Also, OBJ is not someone that one can depend on his sense of judgment. Thrice he gave us Presidents and thrice he failed. As an effect of this, only fools would trust his sense of judgment again.

I hope those who are close to Dr. Obasanjo would tell him that he should stop speaking as if he controls all of us in Nigeria. For the first time in the history of our promising country, we have decided to revolt and rebel against the ruling-class, wrestling power from those who have led us into the present bush we have found ourselves as a people.

Also, PMB wrongly believes that he is the only citizen (of Nigeria) alive—who is not corrupt and when he speaks, he believes he is infallible and sadly, many Nigerians also believe so. And what he does is always right. For the umpteenth time, I guess this is one of the reasons why the Vice President of Nigeria was in Benue to identify with those mourning and the President was on the inside of Aso Rock, entertaining his Support Group—Buhari Support Group (BSG). He has succeeded in showing the whole world that he truly cares for the common man.

37,000 Job-Seeking Nigerians Anxious After JAMB Exams As Police Recruits 6,000

Featured Image

No less than 37,000 job-seeking Nigerians who applied to be enlisted into the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) and sat for a computer-based aptitude (CBA) examination organised by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Friday are eagerly awaiting the outcome of the exercise.

This is to know if they would be among the 6,000 to join the Force.

Speaking while monitoring the examination in Abuja, JAMB Registrar, Dr. Ishaq Oloyede, congratulated the Nigeria Police for approaching the Board in search of excellence.

His words: “We conduct examinations for different agencies, both in the public and private sectors, because we have the facilities that we use may be once or twice in a year. It is a public facility and at minimum cost, we allow people to use the system.

“We have many people who believe in us and they patronise us, particularly those who want to do things transparently.

“If you want to do something that is not that transparent, JAMB is not the right place to go. But if you want to set the rules and you want the rules to be enforced and transparently so, JAMB will give you the services at a cost you cannot get elsewhere, because we are using already established facility and it is a public facility. All we ensure is that there must be a set standard and the standard must be enforced.

“I congratulate the Nigeria Police. So far so good, they comply with all the agreements about setting standard and ensuring that there would be no waiver at any point in time.

“We have done about 16 agencies this year and we are starting another one in the next few week. We will be starting the Road Safety Corps very soon and we have assisted MTN, EFCC, Christian Pilgrims Commission, West Africa College of Surgeons and National Postgraduate College and all those who want excellent and transparent test. We will ensure that when it comes to CBT examination, the place to go is JAMB.”

The JAMB registrar also noted that the number of vacancies and level of performance would determine the cut-off mark for the Police recruitment.

Nigerian Family Disowns Daughter In Newspaper Advertorial For Seeking To Marry Another Woman

Featured Image

Apparently peeved by the lesbian activities of their daughter, a Nigerian family from Ogun state has disowned Shalom Shoremi, for seeking to get married to a woman.

The Shoremi family, in a newspaper advertorial, announced that it had severed all ties with Shalom, after she had reportedly approached a federal marriage registry for approval to consummate her marriage to her partner.

According to the advert, the young lady was rejected by the marriage registry with reasons that her request is against the same-sex marriage probation act of 2014.

The act declares that same-sex marriage is an illegal act in Nigeria. The law also states that 14 years imprisonment would be given to those accused of same-sex relationships.

The family said the application was rejected in line with the same-sex marriage probation act of 2014 which declares the act illegal in Nigeria.

But following her decision to approach the court, her family members took to a national newspaper to announce their separation from her.

“The attention of Shoremi Family of Ogun State has been drawn to an application for a special marriage license sought by Shalom T. Shoremi,” the advertorial read.

“She had requested for a special marriage license at the Federal Marriage Registry on 22nd of March, 2018 to allow her consummate a same sex marriage, which was rejected as it in variance with the marriage  Act of the Federal Republic Of Nigeria.

“The family is disassociating itself from the move and has served ties with her.

“We also disown her on the grounds that what she planned to do is against the law in Nigeria.

“She will also not be entitled to anything from the family inheritance.”

Fans Invade Brazil’s Training Ground To Watch Team Train

Featured Image

Fans eager to see Brazil’s penultimate practice session before the squad leave for World Cup warm-up games in Europe invaded the training ground on Friday, although police stopped them reaching the players, witnesses and news reports said.

The supporter invasion came at Brazil’s long-time training complex just outside Rio de Janeiro.

Fans arrived early and hundreds of people pushed against the gates, with some weeping children being lifted over the heads of adults to escape the crush. Other supporters pushed their way in, forcing police to chase them.

With numbers restricted some fans did not make it inside and chanted ‘7-1, 7-1’ in reference to Brazil’s humiliating defeat by Germany in the World Cup semi-final on home soil four years ago.

Friday’s training was the only one open to fans and the penultimate session before the 23-man squad head for Europe.

Brazil play warm up games against Croatia on June 3 in Liverpool and Austria in Vienna on June 10 before heading to Russia where they face Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia.

I’ve Encountered Racism And Sexism On The Job – FIFA’s Fatma Samoura

Featured Image

FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura has revealed she encountered sexism and racism when she took over the job, with some in soccer opposed to a “black woman” taking a senior post at the global governing body.

The 55-year-old Senegalese was the first woman to hold a senior role at FIFA when she took over from Jerome Valcke, who was sacked in January 2016 as part of the fall-out from the corruption scandal that rocked the organisation.

Fatma Samoura said she had “broken the glass ceiling” in a “male-dominated organisation”, adding “they are used to me now”.

“There are people who don’t think that a black woman should be leading the administration of FIFA. It’s sometimes as simple as that,” Samoura told the BBC.

“It is something we are fighting on a daily basis on the pitch – I don’t want any racist person around me.

“Nobody asks a man when he takes a position if he’s competent to do the job. They just assume that he can do the job.

“For a woman to make her way up to the top – you need to prove every single day that you are the best fit for that position.”

Maurizio Sarri ‘Keen To Bring His Former Napoli Players To Chelsea’

Featured Image

Maurizio Sarri is reportedly planning to raid his former club Napoli for summer recruits if he takes over at Chelsea.

Maurizio Sarri , who has been tipped to replace compatriot Antonio Conte on the Stamford Bridge hotseat, will attempt to bring right-back Elseid Hysaj, midfielder Piotr Zielinski and defender Raul Albiol with him to England if he lands the position, according to the EveningStandard.

The report also states that Kalidou Koulibaly and Jorginho could become Chelsea targets if Sarri joins the club.

Given how relations soured between Sarri and Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis, Chelsea may find it hard to prise any of their assets away. Chelsea have already identified Leon Bailey, Richarlison and Jamaal Lascelles as transfer targets.

Conte, who guided his team to FA Cup glory last season and the Premier League title the season before, remains in charge of the Blues, but is strongly rumoured to part ways with them this summer.

Sarri is currently a free agent after being replaced by Carlo Ancelotti in Naples.

Gareth Bale Has To Start Champions League Final – Ryan Giggs

Featured Image

Wales coach Ryan Giggs has suggested that Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane would be taking a big gamble if he leaves Gareth Bale out of his starting lineup for this weekend’s Champions League final.

Gareth Bale has started just three times for Real Madrid so far in this season’s competition, as Zidane has instead gone with IscoCristiano Ronaldoand Karim Benzema as his most advanced players.

Giggs believes that Bale is a game-changing talent, though, as he proved in the 2014 final when scoring a key goal against Atletico Madrid – the first of three European Cup triumphs in four years for Los Blancos.

“Every time he is involved, he makes a difference. He can do special things and has scored a lot of goals,” Giggs told Sky Sports News ahead of Madrid’s meeting with Liverpool on Saturday.

“He is someone who is very hard to defend against as he can score all types of goals. Of course Real have a lot of good players but, from my point of view, Bale would always be in my starting teamH

“It would be amazing if Real Madrid do it. It is great for Gareth, but also for Wales to have somebody representing the country, and somebody who has won so much.”

Italy

Chelsea could make a double swoop for a new manager who will bring with him one of the best centre-backs in Europe. Maurizio Sarri has left Napoli after the club appointed Carlo Ancelotti, and the manager who helped them challenge Juventus for the title could be on his way to Chelsea, bringing Kalidou Koulibaly with him in a €70m deal. (Il Messaggero)

Juventus will confirm the signing of Liverpool’s Emre Can by the end of May after the Italian club’s chief executive, Giuseppe Marotta, said the deal could be announced within 10 days. Despite having been out of the Liverpool side with injury towards the end of this season, he could still feature in the Champions League final. The move to Juventus is likely to be officially announced after that game. (Gazzetta dello Sport)

Manchester City continue to be linked with Napoli midfielder Jorginho. The Brazil-born Italy international is set to cost the club over £50m, and the club are preparing a bid to secure his signature ahead of pre-season. He was a key part of the Italian club’s title challenge this season. (Calciomercato)

Bayern Munich’s Arturo Vidal has been linked with a number of clubs in the past year, and with the arrival at the club of Leon Goretzka, he could look to make one last move this summer. (Calciomercato)

France

Nabil Fekir has refused to rule out a move to Liverpool and has been strongly linked with the club in the last 24 hours. When asked about the possibility of such a move, he responded” “Why not? Later there can be discussions with the president, with my agent, to make a decision. In life, nothing can be ruled out.” (RTL)

Marseille’s former Newcastle midfielder Florian Thauvin wants to play in the Champions League, sparking rumours that he will leave the club this summer. Following an excellent season as one of the outstanding players in Ligue 1, he could have a number of suitors. “It bothers me not to play the Champions League, it’s problematic. I am very happy at OM, but I do not rule anything out.” (Eurosport France)

Spain

Chelsea could look to use Alvaro Morata as part of a deal for Inter striker Mauro Icardi. The club are considering their options up front, and with the Spaniard favouring a return to Italy, including him in a deal for Icardi could shave millions off the Argentine’s price tag. (Cadena Ser)

Germany

Newcastle, Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea are all in the running for Hamburg teenager Josha Vagnoman. The 17-year-old defender is capped at youth level for Germany and could feature in the 2 Bundesliga next season should he remain at the recently relegated German club. (Bild)
