Shunning is not the answer.”Mohamed Salah on Twitter“We need to believe in second chances… we need to guide and educate. Shunning is not the answer.”Egyptian Football Association president Hani Abu Reda met with the players and technical staff on Thursday, along with Egypt’s minister of youth and sports, Dr Ashraf Subhi.An EFA statement read: “Hani Abu Reda praised the spirit of solidarity between the players, their desire to pardon their colleague Amr Warda and to lift the suspension from him, and their commitment to any decision issued by the football association in this regard.Egyptian Football AssociationThe Egyptian Football Association is the governing body of football in Egypt. It was founded on 3 December 1921,…“He decided to reduce the penalty of suspension until the end of the first round of the tournament only.”Wednesday’s win means that tournament favourites Egypt are already through to the last 16, when Warda will be available again, having missed the final group game against Uganda on Sunday.He appeared as a substitute in the hosts’ opening game, a 1-0 win over Guinea last Friday.Nigeria 1-0 Guinea: Kenneth Omeruo goal takes Nigeria into last 16Nigeria become the first team to qualify for the last 16 of the Africa Cup of Nations as they beat Guinea 1-0.The decision to effectively overturn Amr Warda’s suspension has caused a split among sections of Egyptian society and also put a rare dent in Mohamed Salah’s iconic status.Having often stood up for women’s rights previously, Salah’s call for Amr Warda – who has had several sexual harassment claims against him in the past – to be given a second chance has not impressed many.Many Egyptian women believe that sexual harassment is largely condoned in local society, and the decision to allow the player back has only strengthened these beliefs, given the message it has sent out.Some have called for women to boycott Egypt matches, while one male Egyptian fan has spoken online of people now willing the team to fail – a dramatic twist as the Pharaohs seek to win the tournament for a record-extending eighth time.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Manchester United and Chelsea played out a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford on Monday in a game that failed to live up to its pre-match billing.The fixture marked the first time that David Moyes locked horns with Jose Mourinho as United manager but neither manager could gain the psychological upper hand, although the point puts the Blues clear at the top of the Premier League.Oscar tried to prise open a tight United defence in a lacklustre first half but twice wasted good opportunities with weak efforts straight at David de Gea. Robin van Persie had United’s best effort when he hit the side netting from inside the area.The second half followed a similar pattern and England international Danny Welbeck will rue his wastefulness after digging an effort wide after good work from Wayne Rooney. United also had claims for a penalty when a Tom Cleverley shot struck Frank Lampard’s hand in the box.Moyes named Rooney in his starting XI for the first time, with the striker the subject of two rejected bids during the close-season from Monday night’s opposition. Ryan Giggs dropped to the bench to allow for his inclusion.Chelsea started the game with a surprise as Andre Schurrle led the line. Kevin De Bruyne was also given the nod as Juan Mata and Demba Ba were omitted from the side that started against Aston Villa on Wednesday. Both sides struggled to create openings in a tepid opening 45 minutes. It was the away side who had the first chance in the 10th minute when a low De Bruyne cross rebounded to Oscar who hit a tame effort straight at De Gea.Chelsea had managed to quash the threat Van Persie for the opening 20 minutes but the Dutchman had United’s first meaningful effort. Michael Carrick dispossessed Ramires in midfield and the former Arsenal man picked up the loose ball on the edge of the box but he went too wide before firing his effort against the side netting.Rooney then had his first effort on goal. He showed a neat piece of skill to feint inside Gary Cahill but his shot from 20 yards was weak and rolled harmlessly to Petr Cech.United were beginning to enjoy more of the ball and, in the 38th minute, Phil Jones’s low cross was only half-cleared by John Terry and Cleverley hit a first-time shot from 20 yards that cleared the crossbar.The half ended with a weak shot from Oscar after a series of neat passes in the Chelsea midfield – the Brazilian will feel that he could have done more to trouble De Gea. After a slow start to the second half, United should have taken the lead after 56 minutes. Rooney showed good control just outside the area before slipping a neat through-ball to Welbeck but the striker fluffed his lines as he chipped his effort over from 10 yards.Cahill was unlucky with a 30-yard drive that De Gea got down well to save, before United had claims for a penalty.Cleverley’s half-volley hit Lampard’s hand in the area but referee Martin Atkinson deemed that the midfielder had not deliberately made contact with the shot.Rooney almost had the last say late on when he tested Cech with a strong 25-yard effort. The shot may have been going wide but the Chelsea man took no chances.With two minutes remaining, United had another penalty shout when John Obi Mikel turned into Van Persie’s volley but the decision would have been harsh on the Nigerian who knew had no time to dodge the shot.

Time ran out for an unidentified motorcyclist who many said was coming from church yesterday when he was crushed to death by a truck belonging to Libra Sanitation.The incident took place near the Fish Market in Sinkor, Monrovia, holding up the already congested traffic for several hours. The man met his horrific death in the accident that left him almost unrecognizable with one side of his face smashed. Many said the victim, wearing a white shirt, khaki pants and matching shoes, could not have been a (commercial) motorbike rider because he was well-dressed and could have been coming from church.Police on the scene had the remains covered with a white cloth as eye-witnesses lamented over the tragedy.Police investigators did not speak to the Daily Observer and kept eye-witnesses anxious to see the body a distance from the scene.The Libra Sanitation truck, bearing license plate number LBC50104, allegedly ran over the victim, who died shortly after he was struck down, an eyewitness to the accident remarked.Until the police took the body way, there was no sign of anyone arriving on the scene to identify the victim, but a group of young men, who showed up later expressed anger at the driver of the truck.“You’re lucky. We would have killed you,” one threatened and another made an attempt to open the passenger side of the truck.Many complained that drivers of large trucks have no respect for drivers of smaller vehicles and motor bike riders.“Sometimes drivers of big vehicles can drive so close to you that your only choice is to get off the main road with your small vehicle or with your motorbike,” an eyewitness said.The accident caused traffic in the area to come to a standstill, with drivers who did not know the reason for the delay expressing frustration with the slow pace of getting through.Many people on the scene expressed regret about the accident and the loss of life.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Thieves have stooped to a new low after stealing the pillars from the front of a church.The incident happened at the weekend when thieves targeted St.Lugadius’ Church in Clonleigh in Lifford.Locals spotted people acting suspiciously on Friday evening and feared they were planning to steal headstones. Upon further investigation they discovered that sandstone pillar tops had been removed from the Church of Ireland building and were lying on the ground.Rev John Hay, the Dean of Raphoe, called Gardai who carried out extra patrols in the area.However when the church was visited a number of hours later around 10pm, the 200 year old pillar-tops had vanished.Dean of Raphoe, Rev Hay said local people are shocked and annoyed that the pillar-tops have been stolen. “To think that they have been there for 200 years and not been touched and now they are simply gone is just so annoying.“Why would people steal so low as to do something like this? I know we are living in touch times but I would ask to ask myself if these people are not desperate but just bad,” he said.The pillar-tops are 2’6” square and are made of sandstone.Rev Hay has appealed to anybody who may have been offered the items for sale to contact the Gardai immediately.“This was organised and planned and perhaps they were stolen to order. “There is a large mark on the wall and ground where they were taken down and then put into some kind of vehicle.“I would appeal to anybody who may have been offered these pillar-tops to do the right thing and contact the Gardai,” he said.Gardai have confirmed the incident is being investigated and have appealed for witnesses.Ends SHOCK AS THIEVES STEAL PILLARS FROM FRONT OF CHURCH was last modified: July 26th, 2011 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:Liffordpillars stolenRev John HaySt Lugadius
