Juma dreams of Talanta’s KPL promotion

first_img“I really believe and I am confident that we will earn promotion. I am upbeat about this and from the beginning I have told my boys that our first match next season will be up against a Premier League team. We believe that and we are working very hard to achieve that,” Juma noted.He added; “If you look at how we are playing and the belief the players have, I am convinced that we can actually dream of it and achieve it.”Last Monday’s massive 3-1 win over Wazito was testament enough that the side can vie for one of the three available promotion slots, two of them being automatic.He now hopes that his side can keep the same form and improve over their next few games.Talanta FC players celebrate one of their three goals against Wazito FC during their National Super League tie at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on March 4, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“I have a very good team of young and ambitious players, but we have only one problem; striking. If we can get one or two very good strikers then I believe we will compete to be even the top. I have so far found one from Modern Coast and I am looking for another to have varied options,” Juma noted.“We have a good defense line, a good midfield but upfront is where the real challenge is. We need to click in that end and I believe we will be a force to reckon in this league,” Abdallah further stated.Talanta will face Shabana FC in their next assignment at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on Friday, a tie that Juma says will be tough.“Shabana is a very tough team and they are also seeking to get promotion. We will make a few changes to the team to give some of the players playing time and also one of the new players,” the tactician stated.Ushuru FC players celebrate one of their three goals during their 3-0 win over Kangemi All Stars at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on March 4, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluMeanwhile, leaders Ushuru FC will take on eighth placed Kenya Police in the early kick off, the taxmen looking to keep their three-point lead at the top intact.Two times in a row, Ushuru have finished third in the standings to compete in the play-off, failing in both occasions. However, this time, head coach Ken Kenyatta says he does not want to take the play-off lottery, but get automatic promotion.“This is a thing we want to avoid and from when the season started, our target has always been to get automatic promotion. I am glad that we have started the season well and I hope we can maintain it to the end. We have a good team and we can get that automatic slot,” Kenyatta stated.“But we are playing in a very tough and competitive league so we need to take each game at a time, a step a day,” he added.Ushuru carry with them an enviable run of three wins on the trot and Kenyatta says their confidence has been hugely boosted by the run including Monday’s 3-0 victory against Kangemi All Stars.Elsewhere, Wazito FC who have lost back to back matches and sacked their coach Mohammed Mchulla will look for redemption when they travel away to Nakuru to face St. Joseph.Wazito are tied on points with second placed Nairobi Stima but have an inferior goal difference.

Judge issues arrest warrant for the one million euro man!

first_imgA Judge has issued an arrest warrant for a man who demanded ONE MILLION EURO to come back into court.Thomas Dignam appeared at Letterkenny District Court yesterday. Mr Dignam, of Woodlands, Dooish, Ballybofey faces a number of motoring charges.The 69-year-old is charged with having no insurance and no driving license at LIDL car park at Paddy Harte Road in Letterkenny on June 12th, 2018.He is also charged with holding a mobile phone while driving on the same date.When asked what he was doing about the charges by Judge Paul Kelly, Dignam replied that the charges were “legal fiction.”When asked if he was Thomas Dignam he replied “I’m the man commonly known as Thomas Dignam.”Judge Paul Kelly adjourned the case until 2pm yesterday afternoon.However, Dignam replied “I want one million euro to come back into this court.”He then left the court.The case was then called in the afternoon but Mr Dignam failed to appear.Prosecuting Garda Gareth Moanghan said he stopped Dignam on the day in question and he was reluctant to give his full name and was “making light of the situation.”The Garda said he was argumentative and he was issued with a summons.Judge Kelly said Mr Dignam had handed in a number of documents in which he claimed that Letterkenny District Court was “a ship in dry dock.”He also appeared to have handed in an insurance certificate.However, upon checking the dates covered by the document, Sgt Gerard Dalton said the document did not cover the date on which the accused was stoped.Judge Kelly asked if Mr Dignam had any previous convictions and Gardai said that he had just one – for possession of explosives in 1974.A warrant was issued for Dignam’s arrest.Judge issues arrest warrant for the one million euro man! was last modified: October 17th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:arrestletterkennyone million eurosommonsThomas Dignamwarrant. mobile phonelast_img read more

Brazil Beats Paraguay in Shootout in Copa América Quarters

first_imgPORTO ALEGRE, Brazil — Facing early elimination in the Copa América at home, Brazil finally found a way to get past Paraguay in a penalty shootout.After two consecutive eliminations against its southern neighbor, Brazil came out on top on penalties on Thursday to avoid an embarrassing elimination in the quarterfinals of the South American tournament.Goalkeeper Alisson made a save and Gabriel Jesus scored the decisive penalty as Brazil defeated Paraguay 4-3 in the shootout to return to the semifinals for the first time since 2007.Alisson dived to his left to stop the initial penalty by defender Gustavo Gómez, and Gabriel Jesus sealed the victory to keep Brazil on track for its first Copa América title since 2007.Brazil will next face either Venezuela or Argentina, which play on Friday in Rio de Janeiro.Brazil had lost to Paraguay the last two times the teams met in the Copa América quarterfinals, in 2011 and 2015, both times in penalty shootouts.Derlis González also missed from the spot for Paraguay, while Roberto Firmino failed to score for Brazil. Both players sent their shots wide.González, who also missed a penalty in Paraguay’s 1-1 draw against Argentina in the group stage, had scored the decisive goal in the 2015 shootout. He was one of the five players back from that team that eliminated Brazil.Brazil’s players celebrate after winning the penalty shoot-out against Paraguay during a Copa America quarterfinal soccer match at the Arena do Gremio in Porto Alegre, Brazil, Thursday, June 27, 2019. (AP Photo/Natacha Pisarenko)Willian, Marquinhos and Philippe Coutinho converted their penalties for Brazil, while Miguel Almirón, Bruno Valdez and Rodrigo Rojas netted for Paraguay.“My teammates did their part, they took on the responsibility and succeeded. That was crucial,” Alisson said. “This was an important step toward our goal of winning the South American title.”Gabriel Jesus had missed a late penalty in Brazil’s 5-0 rout of Peru in its last group game, but calmly found the net with his shot from the spot as Paraguay goalkeeper Roberto “Gatito” Fernández went the other way, igniting the Brazilian crowd of more than 48,000 at the Arena Grêmio.“I was confident, I knew that if I took the penalty the way I’m used to taking it, I would have more chances of scoring,” Gabriel Jesus said. “I was upset after the other match because I didn’t take the shot my own way. This time I waited for the goalkeeper to move and just sent the ball the other way.”Gatito had been key in regulation as the visitors held on to a 0-0 draw despite having a defender sent off in the 58th minute. In the Copa America quarterfinals, extra time is not played and the match proceeded straight to penalties.Paraguay played with 10 men after Fabián Balbuena was sent off for a foul that was initially called a penalty kick but was reversed after video review determined the foul happened outside the area.“We have to be proud of the character shown by this team,” said Paraguay coach Eduardo Berizzo, an Argentine. “We could have been rewarded with a wonderful and heroic triumph in the penalty shootout, but that doesn’t take anything away from my players’ great performance.”Brazil controlled possession but struggled to create scoring opportunities against Paraguay’s solid defensive system.The visitors had one of the best chances of the first half when González’s close-range shot was saved by Alisson.Brazil pressed nearly full-time after Balbuena was sent off, but couldn’t capitalize on its many opportunities. Gabriel Jesus, Coutinho, Everton and Firmino all missed great chances in front of the goal.Fernández made a great reflex save on a close-range header by Alex Sandro near the end of the match, and in the 90th Fernández could only watch as a low shot by Willian struck the post.Brazil coach Tite said the poor field conditions didn’t help Brazil’s attack.“It’s absurd to have to play on a field where it’s difficult to exchange passes,” Tite said.Despite reaching the semifinals in 2015 and finishing runner-up in 2011, Paraguay has won only one of its last 21 matches in the Copa América, taking advantage of penalty shootouts to advance.Paraguay’s players react after losing the penalty shoot-out against Brazil during a Copa America quarterfinal soccer match at the Arena do Gremio in Porto Alegre, Brazil, Thursday, June 27, 2019.
