Croatia Advance To #WorldCup Final After Beating England

Mario Mandzukic’s goal in extra time sends Croatia to its first World Cup final as England couldn’t make it happen in the closing minutes after an impressive run in the tournament.

England were 1-0 up against Croatia at half-time of their World Cup semi-final in Moscow on Wednesday night, putting them on course for their first final since 1966.

Kieran Trippier gave Gareth Southgate’s side a dream start, curling in a free-kick past the despairing dive of Danijel Subasic in the fifth minute.

Croatia struggled to gain a foothold in the game, with England threatening whenever they went forward, but started to retain the ball better as the half wore on.

Croatia and England were locked at 1-1 at the end of normal time.

But a goal by Mario Mandzukic in the 109th minute gave Croatia the edge.

Naked and surrounded by flowers, Cardi covered her breasts with one hand and held onto her bump with the other.

Can OBJ, Atiku’s CUPP Serve Nigeria A Hot Cup Of Coffee? – Fredrick Nwabufo

CLICK here to read more opinion articles

In Nigeria, alliance politics is a historical staple. In the 1960s, the NCNC and NPC forged an alliance to stabilise the newly independent country.  But the marriage segued from harmony to divorce.

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

The skirmishes among the political parties – NCNC, NPC and AG – heightened the political temperature of the country to a frightening degree, and eventually the military struck in 1966.

In 1979 (Second Republic), NPN (Shehu Shagari’s party) entered into a relationship of “convenient necessity” with NPP (Nnamdi Azikiwe’s party). The reason for the entente was so that the executive could get bills passed by the national assembly, where there was vicious opposition.

Atiku Blasts Buhari, Describes His Government Most Corrupt Since 1999

<

p class=”m_-3607681314701005252ydpdfff16ecMsoNormal”>But corruption brought an end to the union. In 1981, members of both parties went for each other’s throats over access to government’s largesse. The military struck two years later.

In 2013, AD, CPC, ANPP and ‘nPDP’ emulsified into APC.  But a few years after the marriage, the party cannot keep its broomsticks together. The marriage was one of convenience; simply contracted for the sake of taking over power.

Now, it is obvious that the APC polygamous marriage was just for political expediency and not for delivering quality governance to Nigerians.

But we are back to where we were in 2013 with a new union of kindred political parties – Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP). 

PDP, R-APC, 37 Others Join Forces To Unseat Buhari In 2019

I will not write off the coalition yet because Nigeria deserves good governance and a better alternative at this point. The country is in an intensive care unit and needs urgent surgery.

But my only issue with the coalition is that it is an erratic response to a pungent malady. Obviously, the throbbing aim of the coalition is to take over power from the APC. No programme, plan or agenda of how to deliver good governance to Nigerians.

After taking over power what next? Are we going to return to an era of excuses and arrogant incompetence? And of ‘we are not performing because APC wasted four years?’

Nigeria needs a doctor. But we should not in a hurry take this patient to a Babalawo.

Again, I will not write off the coalition just yet, but I hope the 32 parties in the alliance will begin to show singularity in the agenda of how they will rescue Nigeria.

I hope CUPP, if it succeeds, will serve Nigeria the needed cup of elixir.

I hope.

Nigeria Labour Chases Out Workers From MTN Call Centre In Ojota, Lagos

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) on Tuesday chased workers out of MTN Call Centre, Ojota, Lagos, in continuation of its picketing of the multinational company over alleged unfair labour practices.

NLC members led by the President, Ayuba Wabba, arrived and disrupted operations at the centre on the second day of the picketing.

The congress started picketing the company’s offices across states on Monday.

Addressing MTN workers at Tuesday’s picketing, Mr Wabba vowed that NLC would not relent until the company respected workers’ rights.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the NLC is picketing MTN Nigeria over alleged casualisation and non-unionisation of workers.

Mr Wabba said that the congress would ensure that MTN Nigeria adhered to labour rules and provided improved work condition for its workers.

He noted that NLC members disrupted the company’s operations on Monday when it began to picket the multinational company.

”We removed the wire used in barricading the gate of the office (headquarters), and NLC members went in and chased workers out,” he said.

The NLC president said that the congress also chased workers out at the call centre in Ojota to ensure sucess of the picketing.

He alleged that MTN did not treat Nigerian workers well compared to treatment given to its workers in other Africa countries.

Tobechukwu Okigbo, MTN’s Corporate Affairs Executive, however, denied the allegations on Monday.

Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp Defends Loris Karius After Yet Another Goalkeeping Error

Featured Image

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has issued a vote of confidence to Loris Karius following the goalkeeper’s latest error in Liverpool’s 3-2 win against Tranmere Rovers.

Loris Karius spilled Oliver Norburn‘s free kick into the path of Jonny Smith, allowing the winger to pull the first of two goals back for the hosts.

The 25-year-old is still feeling the heat six weeks on from his calamitous showing in the Champions League final, as he contributed directly to two of Real Madrid’s goal in their 3-1 win in Kiev.

Klopp has attempted to defend the German keeper, though, telling reporters at Prenton Park: “No one likes that goal but, if we talk about that, then the second goal is Milly’s (James Milner‘s) fault.

“Two brilliant footballers make mistakes but we only talk about one. We can’t make a story after each mistake. Let’s carry on and make the best of the situation and learn from it.

“Until he has a few fantastic games you cannot change [the criticism]. Our job is to support Loris. That’s our part of the deal. I saw this situation 500 times in my life: the ball hits his chest but what can you do?”

Chelsea Very Close On Double Signing Of Maurizio Sarri And Midfielder Jorginho

Featured Image

Chelsea are close to finalising a deal for Maurizio Sarri to replace Antonio Conte, Napoli’s president has revealed.

Aurelio De Laurentiis [Napoli president] announced on Wednesday: “Sarri is close to be new Chelsea manager. My lawyers are in talks with his lawyers to finalise everything.”

The significant breakthrough over compensation for Maurizio Sarri came as talks intensified over midfielder Jorginho, a player that the 59-year-old former Empoli coach had specifically requested be signed by the Chelsea top brass.

Manchester City have had an offer on the table for  Jorginho for a long time but he has been considering but the opportunity to continue to play under Sarri, albeit in the new surroundings of the Premier League, was understood to be a key factor and the Italian international is now expected to make a £53m move to Chelsea with Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis confirming as much to TuttoMercatoWeb in Italy.

“It was decided to accept the requests that started from City and I will have to apologise to them but the player.

“If he prefers London to Manchester, and I can understand that, then if Chelsea pays him more I can understand more and I can’t do anything about it.”

Chelsea could announce the hire of Sarri as soon as this week, with a renewed push to resolve the Blues’ bizarre summer as they prepare for their first pre-season friendlies and a new style of play.

West Ham Complete Signing Of Andriy Yarmolenko For £17.5m From Borussia Dortmund

Featured Image

West Ham United have signed Ukraine international Andriy Yarmolenko from Borussia Dortmund on a four-year contract.

“I am very happy to sign for West Ham United,” said Andriy Yarmolenko. “West Ham is a big club with good fans and I am happy to come to play in the Premier League.

“The Premier League is the best league in the world and I know that an interesting project is being built here at West Ham. The team wants to achieve high things and I am excited for this challenge.”

Yarmolenko’s arrival takes West Ham’s spending above the £50m mark, with Ryan Fredericks, Issa Diop, Lukasz Fabianksi and Jack Wilshere having all moved to the London Stadium this summer.

West Ham’s director of football, Mario Husillos, said the club “did not hesitate” when the opportunity to sign Yarmolenko came about.

“He really is the kind of player that we were looking for,” said Husillos.

“He is a left-footed player but can play on the right and is very quick, very good one-on-one against a defender. He gives the team a lot of attacking options and scores goals, is fast on the counter-attack and provides aerial threat with his height.

“He also has very good experience, of playing for big teams and fighting for titles. At Dortmund, he had some good matches but perhaps didn’t quite show his very best. However, I think Manuel Pellegrini is the perfect coach for Andriy and his style of play.

“I believe he is joining us in the perfect moment. He is 28, the prime age for football, and we have great expectation about what he can achieve with West Ham United.”

“We believe he has all the credentials to become a full international goalkeeper for England in the future, and that’s exactly the sort of talent we want to have here at Southampton.

“He represents another excellent addition and we are excited about what he brings to the squad and the further progression we feel he can make with us.

“There was a lot of interest from other teams in the Premier League, so for Angus to choose Southampton as the best option for him is another positive indication of the work the club is doing and what is being built here.”

#WorldCupWith360nobs: We Paid The Price For Missed Chances Vs France – Roberto Martinez

Featured Image

Belguim boss Roberto Martinez has said his players paid the price for failing to take their chances against France but will now have to shake off their disappointment and focus on finishing third at the World Cup.

Samuel Umtiti headed in from a corner for the only goal of the game to knock Belgium out, and Martinez said that while he was pleased his team negated France’s threat on the counter-attack, his players did not show their usual finesse in front of goal.

“It was a tight game,” the Spaniard told reporters. “There weren’t many big moments… The difference between defeat and winning was just one dead-ball situation.

“We controlled their counter-attacks. We had the ball but have to give credit to the way France defended, and we couldn’t find that little bit of magic in front of goal.”

The match was a fascinating tactical battle, with France content to surrender possession and looking to use Kylian Mbappe’s pace to hurt Belgium on the counter-attack.

Martinez said his team had done well to nullify the French threat from open play and denied that his decision to start Mousa Dembele in midfield had a major effect on the outcome.

“I didn’t see France running away with the game,” Martinez added. “It came down to a corner kick. That’s why I don’t think the performance came down to individuals.”

From dreaming of a first World Cup final, Belgium will now have to be content with a playoff for third place, but Martinez said he was proud of his players and would do all he could to get them ready for their final match of the tournament.

“The disappointment is huge… It’s a very sad dressing room right now,” he said. “I don’t want any of my players to be frustrated and disappointed.

“It’s a difficult emotion to manage. You’re disappointed because you lose the semi-final, and it’s very difficult to see the opportunity of playing another game as a positive.

“We need to regroup and recover and see the opportunity. To try to finish third in the World Cup doesn’t happen often. The only time it happened in Belgian football was in 1986, when we finished fourth.

“We need to understand it’s an important game, but I accept it’s very difficult after a game with the emotions we had today. When you had the ambition of getting to the final, it’s tough individually and collectively to prepare for the next game.”

“It’s too early to make any assessment for the tournament,” Martinez told reporters after the game.

We need to focus on the final game and fight for third place. Then we’ll regroup. We need to look at the younger generation and try to be stronger for the future. We have a wealth of young talent coming through.

“It is a difficult emotion to manage – you are disappointed at losing a semi-final. The next 48 hours will be important. To try to finish third in a World Cup doesn’t happen too often. It’s an important game.”

#WorldCupWith360nobs: France Manager Didier Deschamps Hails “Exceptional” Win Over Belgium

Featured Image

France manager Didier Deschamps has hailed his players after they battled to a 1-0 win over Belgium for a place in the World Cup final.

Samuel Umtiti‘s 51st-minute header was enough to propel France into their third final appearance since 1998 for a chance to add to their solitary trophy, which was won on home soil 20 years ago.

France withstood nine shots from their European neighbours as Hugo Lloris kept a clean sheet, and Deschamps credited his side’s effort at the back.

“It was exceptional,” the 49-year-old told reporters. “I’m very happy for my players, we showed character and the right mentality, it was very hard for us tonight. We worked hard defensively.

“We had to take advantage a bit more in the counterattacks, but congratulations to my players and my staff. I feel very proud for my group.”

“These years in Real Madrid, and in this city of Madrid, have been possibly the happiest of my life,” Cristiano Ronaldo said. “I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club, for this hobby and for this city. I can only thank all of them for the love and affection I have received.

“However, I believe that the time has come to open a new stage in my life and that is why I have asked the club to accept transferring me. I feel that way and I ask everyone, and especially our followers, to please understand me.

“They have been absolutely wonderful for nine years. They have been nine unique years. It has been an exciting time for me, full of consideration but also hard because Real Madrid is of a very high demand, but I know very well that I will never forget that I have enjoyed football here in a unique way.

“I have had fabulous teammates in the field and in the dressing room, I have felt the warmth of an incredible crowd and together we have won three Champions in a row and four Champions [Leagues] in five years. And with them also, on an individual level, I have the satisfaction of having won four Golden Balls and three Golden Boots. All during my time in this immense and extraordinary club.

“Real Madrid has conquered my heart, and that of my family, and that is why more than ever I want to say thank you: thanks to the club, the President, the directors, my colleagues, all the technicians, doctors, physios and incredible workers that make everything work and that are pending every detail tirelessly.

“Thank you infinitely once more to our fans and thanks also to Spanish Football. During these nine exciting years I have had great players in front of me. My respect and my recognition for all of them. I have reflected a lot and I know that the time has come for a new cycle. I’m leaving but this shirt, this shield and the Santiago Bernabeu will continue to always feel as my own wherever I am.

“Thanks to all and, of course, as I said that first time in our stadium 9 years ago: Hala Madrid!”

Atiku Describes Buhari’s Government Most Corrupt Since 1999

Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has tagged the government of President Muhamadu Buhari as the most corrupt since 1999.

3 Northern Governors, 30 Senators, 70 Reps’ Members On The Verge To Dump APC For PDP

Abubakar, who was the nation’s number two citizen, made this known in Abakaliki, Ebonyi capital, while speaking with some members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the state secretariat of the party.

The ex-VP also wondered why officials of the current administration are “not united”.

His words: “What is happening today in our country is in contravention with all our provisions of our constitution. In our federation, we are supposed to have an inclusive government but you know that this federal government is not inclusive.”

“You know that this federal government is not united; you know that this federal government is incompetent; you know that this federal government is more corrupt than any government we have come through since 1999.

“So, let nobody come and deceive you on corruption, they are more corrupt than any government that I know since 1999 and we shall be revealing their level of corruption. Fighting corruption alone is not the only responsibility of government.”

“Our unemployment is accelerated high and there have never a time we had more than 11 million people, young people, young women thrown out of job. Today, we have more than 11 million unemployed people.”

“Today, we have witnessed much insecurity in this country. Today, we are witnessing high inflation the APC government has brought to us in this country.”
