Belgium break Howard to sink U.S. in extra time

first_imgBy Neil MaidmentMuch-fancied Belgium needed extra time to crack heroic United States goalkeeper Tim Howard in a thrilling 2-1 extra-time victory on Tuesday that set up a World Cup quarter-final clash with Argentina.The Belgians had dominated the first 90 minutes but a barrage of efforts were thwarted by an inspired Howard, whose resistance was finally broken in the 93rd minute when midfielder Kevin De Bruyne buried an angled shot from seven metres.In a pulsating extra time, substitute striker Romelu Lukaku powered home a second in the 105th minute after a clever De Bruyne pass, before Julian Green’s neat volley ensured a tense finish in which Clint Dempsey almost sneaked an equaliser.“We had about 15 chances, we were controlling the game I think it is largely deserved even though at the end we conceded one,” Belgium coach Marc Wilmots told reporters.“My players reached their limits to qualify. I said fresh legs would be important today and that is how it was. Now the whole of Belgium can celebrate.”Wilmots’s side had arrived at the Fonte Nova arena with three successive wins in Brazil, although the team’s lacklustre performances had raised doubts about their ability to go deep into the tournament.Much sharper attacking intent against the U.S. would have pleased their fans, although congratulations would have turned to recriminations had U.S. substitute Chris Wondolowski not horribly skewed wide from five metres in the last seconds of normal time.“It was real drama, a thriller, we had enough possibilities to equalise the game or even put it away earlier,” said U.S. coach Juergen Klinsmann, whose side had seen off Ghana and Portugal to qualify for the last 16.“It was a game that just went to the extreme.”LOW DRIVEIn a sign of things to come, striker Divock Origi was in on goal inside 40 seconds, only to see his low drive parried away by Howard and more chances stacked up as the U.S. were forced to set up camp outside their own box and look for quick breaks.The lively De Bruyne should have done better after 23 minutes having found space in the box, while Clint Dempsey’s tame volley was the Americans’ only chance of the first half.The Belgian onslaught cranked up a gear after the break with the scrambling U.S. defence grateful to see Howard save efforts by Dries Mertens and Jan Vertonghen before Origi’s header hit the crossbar.A Kevin Mirallas run and shot, two more stinging Origi drives and a Vincent Kompany effort were all dealt with by Howard, who faced 38 attempts on his goal during the game.With extra time moments away, Wondolowski missed a glorious chance that the Americans would come to rue.All Belgium’s goals in Brazil had been scored after the 70th-minute mark and their persistence finally paid off in extra time when De Bruyne was given time and space to turn and fire home after Lukaku raced down the right wing to cross.The midfielder soon returned the favour, teeing up the frontman to power home a second and spark a thrilling finale.Roared on by deafening chants of ‘USA’, Klinsmann’s side summoned the energy to raise American hopes.Midfielder Green met a delicately chipped Michael Bradley pass to volley home two minutes later and Dempsey almost forced penalties, only for his clever set-piece effort to be foiled by Thibaut Courtois.“It was heart-breaking. We left it all out there but we lost to a really good team. It hurts but hats off to Belgium they were fantastic,” Howard said.“Sometimes when you give your best it doesn’t come off.”The win sealed Belgium’s first World Cup quarter-final appearance since 1986 and they will next play Argentina on Saturday.last_img read more

Prosecutions will continue to be done fairly

first_imgDear Editor,Pursuant to a published article titled “State prosecutors shun ‘highly political cases’ in the Guyana Chronicle on Friday, November 4, 2016, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Mrs Shalimar Ali-Hack herein states that the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions is governed by Article 187 of the Constitution of Guyana.The DPP states that prosecutions will continue to be done fairly and impartially based solely on consideration of the evidence contained in the Police file and the prevailing law.Specifically, as it relates to the court matter involving former Minister Jennifer Westford, the DPP herein informs that two lawyers from the DPP’s Chambers, Senior State Counsel Teshana Lake and State Counsel Natasha Backer are prosecuting this matter.Further, neither of these two State lawyers has expressed any discomfort in the execution of their duties in the said matter.“The DPP, Mrs Ali-Hack or any other lawyer in these Chambers have never indicated that they are uncomfortable in prosecuting any criminal matters, whether political or otherwise.” The staff at the DPP’s Chambers examine the evidence in Police files in relation to the prevailing law and advise charges accordingly; prosecutions are based on the evidence in the file and the law. This is so regardless of who the accused persons are and the positions they hold.Additionally, the present system is that lawyers at these Chambers appear in the High Court and all the Appellate Courts.There are not sufficient lawyers to appear in the Magistrates’ Courts; hence, four Police Prosecutors are assigned to these Chambers and appear in the more serious cases in the Magistrates’ Courts. To say that State Prosecutors shun highly political cases is defamatory.Sincerely,Chambers of theDirector of PublicProsecutionslast_img read more

Mass movement rejects VAT on education

first_imgGuyanese are taking a stand against Government’s imposition of Value Added Tax (VAT) on education – a service which is a necessity to develop a country and is enshrined in the Constitution as a basic human right.A mass online movement is taking shape where hundreds of persons have already signed a petition against Government’s decision to charge 14 per cent on private educational services.The petition is not only protesting the imposition of VAT on the education services but also on education – related expenses because Government has always pavedA mass online movement is taking shape where hundreds of persons have already signed a petition against Government’s decision to charge 14 per cent VAT on private educational servicesthe way for this tax to be charged on reading materials, geometry sets and other items necessary for attaining a sound education.“It is not presented with any political agenda nor is it presented as an appeal on behalf of private schools. Rather it is presented as an issue which affects us all in Guyana,” the petition, which was launched by the School of the Nations explained.The organised campaign argued that the imposition of the 14 per cent VAT on private schools will impact very heavily on the children and youth attending those schools.“For some, the perception is that anyone who attends a private school must be wealthy. That perception may be true for a certain percentage but, for the majority, attendance at such schools often represents a real sacrifice by a family member,” the body explained.Director of the School of the Nations, Dr Brian O’Toole, highlighted that one of the most popular courses in Guyana, with more than 1000 students, is the ABE programme with courses for school leavers, in business, management, travel and tourism and computer technology.He said this imposition may force many students to abandon their pursuance of a sound education altogether.According to the educator, “the only hope for Guyana moving forward is an educated, motivated pool of youth who see Guyana as theirs. This new tax does nothing to further that vision, that sense of optimism, the idea that they can rise out of poverty.”Many other bodies have come out criticising Government over its decision to charge VAT on education – a policy that is not practiced anywhere else in the world which strives for economic betterment.CondemnationOpposition Leader and former President Bharrat Jagdeo has condemned this approach by the Government, noting that it’s a demonstration that the Administration lacks clear vision on the education sector.President of the Georgetown Chambers of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) Vishnu Doerga also supports the movement, contending that VAT on education will not develop Guyana.Additionally, many letter writers have penned powerful arguments against the tax on education.One writer expressed that this “brain tax” appears to be not constitutional as Article 27(1) of the Constitution of Guyana enshrines access to education as a right, “and while a tax on the profits and incomes of for-profit schools and educators is fair game, a tax on the consumption of education is an infringement of that right. Further, as a signatory to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, Guyana committed itself to guaranteeing access to quality education.”DefenceBut in a high handed defense however, Finance Minister Winston Jordan contended that if the parents ‘choose’ to send their children to private schools then they should afford the price as there is no VAT on public education.last_img read more

The Ox gores back at Keane selfie jibes

first_imgThe former Manchester United captain, who now works as Republic of Ireland assistant boss, claims a lack of focus on playing matters will once again stop Arsenal winning a first English title since 2004.But the Gunners made a statement of intent on Sunday when they defeated champions Chelsea 1-0 in the Community Shield thanks to a fine goal from England midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain.And, while the 21-year-old accepts many of Arsenal’s players are all fully immersed in the modern social media culture, Oxlade-Chamberlain insists that does not make them any less determined to deliver on the pitch this season.When asked about Keane’s comments, Oxlade-Chamberlain said: “It is a new era, isn’t it? Some people do it, some don’t. We are serious about winning trophies.“Personally, and I can speak for the rest of the squad, we have been serious every single year I have been at the club about winning trophies.“You can see that on the pitch when we are playing, through the season.“A lot of people don’t see when we lose and go through tough times how upset and disappointed we are.“We have always wanted to win trophies and in the last years we have won a few. This season we want to go that one better.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain with the FA Community Shield after his winning goal saw Arsenal beat Chelsea 1-0 on Sunday.

Martial stars as Manchester Utd beat Watford

first_imgWith an attack containing Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitayran and both goalscorers, United had class to spare and Walter Mazzarri’s Watford had no real answers.Mourinho will be particularly pleased with the return to form of Martial, a player who has blown hot and cold recently following speculation about his future.United’s impressive league form has seen them go unbeaten since their humiliating 4-0 reverse at leaders Chelsea on October 23.They now trail fourth-place Manchester City by just a point ahead of their derby rivals’ trip to Bournemouth on Monday.Manchester United’s Paul Pogba (L) heads the ball as Watford’s Tom Cleverley (R) looks on during their match at Old Trafford in Manchester, north west England, on February 11, 2017 © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYWatford arrived in Manchester confident, however, after consecutive wins over Arsenal and Burnley.United had the best of the opening moments, but clear-cut chances were a rarity early on. That was to change.Antonio Valencia’s deflected cross fell to Ibrahimovic 12 yards out after 60 seconds, but he mishit his volley, while a jinking run from Martial had Watford worried until his shot deflected wide.Watford were clearly up for the fight as Jose Holebas and M’Baye Niang targeted Valencia on United’s right flank and repeatedly ran through on David de Gea’s goal, but could not make it count.After 17 minutes, Paul Pogba nearly opened the scoring with a fine effort from 25 yards that Heurelho Gomes managed to brilliantly claw away at full stretch.– Twisted the knife –Watford’s Younes Kaboul (R) defends against Manchester United’s Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic (L) during their match at Old Trafford in Manchester, north west England, on February 11, 2017 © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYUnited slowly turned up the tempo and had three brilliant opportunities as Watford began to sit back, a tactic that can prove fatal at Old Trafford.Firstly Ibrahimovic volleyed over following a fine ball from Pogba before the Frenchman almost scored himself, volleying Valencia’s low cross goalwards, only for Gomes to produce another smart save.The best opportunity, though, fell to Mkhitaryan, who blasted over from Mata’s intelligent pass, much to Mourinho’s dismay.It felt like Watford’s resistance had to break and so it proved.With Mourinho imploring the home crowd to chant more loudly in support of his side, Gomes produced a stunning close-range block from Ibrahimovic before Mata broke the deadlock in the 32nd minute.Martial ran Watford ragged down the left and his pinpoint pass gave Mata an easy tap-in from four yards out for his ninth goal of the season.Watford somehow reached half-time just a goal down, but Mourinho’s men continued where they had left off after the interval as a Martial effort just went wide of the far post 60 seconds into the second half.Martial did a little better on the hour, grabbing his side’s second goal as United twisted the knife.In the blink of an eye, Ibrahimovic fed Martial near the halfway line and he ran through on goal, took his time and then beat Gomes at his near post through a thicket of defenders.After the goal Watford actually improved as they chased the match and Daryl Janmaat should have halved the deficit with 20 minutes to go, only to blast wastefully over from 12 yards out.It summed up Watford’s afternoon as United closed up at the back and ran down the clock with ease.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester United’s Juan Mata (2L) scores the opening goal during their match against Watford in Manchester on February 11, 2017. © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Feb 11 – Juan Mata and Anthony Martial helped Manchester United extend their brilliant Premier League form as they outclassed Watford in a comfortable 2-0 victory at Old Trafford on Saturday.Jose Mourinho may have a reputation as a defensive manager, but that accusation could not be made during this contest as United were wonderfully entertaining from start to finish.last_img read more

WHY YOU SHOULD ADVERTISE FOR THE PERFECT EMPLOYEE ON DONEGAL DAILY?

first_imgWith the economy picking up, more and more companies across Donegal are advertising for positions for new employees.And more and more companies are realising that the older methods of trying to find the perfect employee have changed a lot since the last jobs boom.Donegal Daily is now being contacted on a daily basis by companies across the North-West trying to find the most suitable candidates for positions they have. And the good news is that we are finding them.Company after company have told us how satisfied they are that their job advertisements are successfully attracting large numbers of applications and most importantly – the right candidates.The majority of people looking for employment, be that a deli counter worker, hairdresser, construction worker, crane driver or IT specialist, have their ready-made CV compiled and ready to be emailed to prospective employers.With a simple link-in on their advertisement, employers and future employees can be introduced to eachother via a Donegal Daily job advertisement. And with an average of 50,000 readers each day,  with more than 300,000 users each month and that’s a lot of prospective employees!But why believe us? Here is a report from just one of many testimonies from a satisfied local employer.The Donegal Lottie!“We placed an advert with Donegal Daily in December 2016 for 4 different job roles and had over 80 CV’s sent to us within a week. The roles varied in skill levels and experience from finance manager to customer service, we managed to fill all of the roles from the CV’s submitted within two weeks. Around 10 or so of the CV’s were from people living in Dublin who are looking to return to raise their families in Donegal. Donegal Daily has that advantage of reaching out to people who may not be living in the locality but either they themselves view the role or their family members are pointing it out to them opening the door for their return to the county. On a daily basis it has more eyes on their site than all the others put together making it the stand out choice in the county for job adverts.” – Ian Harkin, Manager Director of Arklu, makers of Lottie Dolls, Letterkenny.“Kelsius have used Donegal Daily on 7 occasions throughout 2015 to advertise various job vacancies. We have been more than delighted with quality of candidates this has produced. Each advert generated a large amount of CV submissions, allowing us to consider a great amount of excellent prospective employees. The readership and target audience provided by advertising with Donegal Daily is extensive and diverse ensuring a varied range of characters and personalities to select from. The roles varied in skill levels and experience from I.T Support and Customer Support to Cost Accountant and PHP Developer but our ability to fill the position with the suitable candidate remained the same, thanks to the reach of Donegal Daily. We were able to fill all seven positions on a budget that wouldn’t have covered one advert on any of the national job websites. We would definitely recommend using Donegal Daily for job advisements in the future as we most certainly will be.’’  – Ciaran Gallagher, Marketing Executive, Kelsius, Falcarragh. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Donegal Daily as a way of recruiting staff to another company or organisation. I use Donegal Daily on numerous occasions to advertise jobs and the main reason for this is their ability to reach a wide range of people through their website and Facebook page at an affordable price. I found by advertising with them we received a lot of applications for each job and have had many successful candidates through this method.” – Ross Doherty, Cherrymore Kitchens, Ballybofey.
