You have to seize your chances when they are given to you.”Senegal became the first African team to win at this year’s World Cup after Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia were outscored 6-1 in losses.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownIt went ahead in the 37th minute when Thiago Cionek’s attempted block of Idrissa Gueye’s shot deflected and wrong-footed Szczesny, who was picked to start over fellow Arsenal castoff Lukasz Fabianski.After Niang doubled the lead in the 60th, Krychowiak headed in Kamil Grosicki’s free kick in the 86th minute, ending a streak of five straight scoreless openers for Poland. Bicol riders extend help to Taal evacuees Taal victims get help from Kalayaan town Senegal’s Mane and Poland’s Robert Lewandowski rarely threatened in quiet World Cup debuts. Lewandowski topped the Bundesliga in scoring in three of the last five seasons and while he had 16 of Poland’s 28 goals in qualifying, he managed only one goal at the 2012 European Championship and one at Euro 2016.STAMPED FOR SUCCESSPoland released five million Lewanowski stamps last week with his image and “RL9.”FAVORITES?Six of the top eight teams in the FIFA rankings failed to win their openers. Belgium and France are the exceptions.HISTORY LESSONThe match was played at red-and-white Otkritie Arena, the 4-year-old home of Spartak Moscow, where Alexander Rukavishnikov’s 80-foot (25-meter) bronze statue of Spartacus rises high. The Russian club is named after the Thracian gladiator who led a slave rebellion against the Romans.INJURIESPoland: Midfielder Jakub Blaszczykowski started limping midway through the first half, and his right calf was treated just before the restart that led to the goal. He was replaced by Bednarek at the start of the second half. “France and Senegal have a history,” said Cisse, who captained the 2002 team. “France was the country that colonized Senegal.”Poland fans in red and white were about three-quarters of the crowd of 44,190 as their nation returned to the World Cup for the first time since 2006. Poland kept up its dismal streak of World Cup starts — it has four losses and three draws since beating Argentina in 1974.Senegal took the lead when Niang went around Lukasz Piszczek on a flank following a restart and centered to Sadio Mane. The star midfielder passed to Gueye, whose right-footed shot from the arc headed toward Szczesny’s far post. Cionek, near the penalty spot, lifted his right leg and deflected the ball past Szczesny’s other side for the fourth own-goal of the tournament.Poland shifted to a three-man backline at the start of the second half, and Niang had been off the field after Jan Bednarek stomped on a foot. Referee Nawaf Shukralla of Bahrain, a veteran of two World Cup matches in 2014, waved Niang to come back on the field just as Krychowiak lofted a backpass from the center circle to Szczesny. Niang let it bounce twice, knocked the ball past the goalkeeper and then sprinted to catch up as the ball bounced three more times. He tapped it into the open net from about 8 yards.“Real unlucky situation,” Szczesny said. “Usually they keep him on the sideline for a little bit longer.”Still, he didn’t fault the referee.“That’s looking for an alibi for us,” he said. “It was a silly goal from our point.”Nawalka attributed the goal to confusion, saying players thought a substitute was coming on.“We simply lacked quality in the first half,” he said. “There were lots of unnecessary mistakes and lack of accuracy, and simply we didn’t play a very fluid football.”STAR SEARCH Iran player dodges question on women’s rights at World Cup MOST READ “Two goals following our mistakes was something that we were very unhappy with,” Poland coach Adam Nawalka said.Senegal is tied for the group lead with Japan, which upset Colombia 2-1. Senegal will play Japan on Sunday, when Poland meets Colombia.This win set off joy in the streets of Dakar.“We are not too euphoric because we do know there is going to be a difficult match against Japan,” Senegal coach Aliou Cisse said.Senegal President Macky Sall was in the stands to watch the world’s 27th-ranked team upset the eighth-ranked nation — and bring up memories of the 1-0 win over defending champion France 16 years ago.ADVERTISEMENT In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Cloudy skies over Luzon due to amihan Christopher Tolkien, son of Lord of the Rings author, dies aged 95 Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Harvey Weinstein rape trial Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding View comments Senegal players celebrate after winning the group H match between Poland and Senegal at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Spartak Stadium in Moscow, Russia, Tuesday, June 19, 2018.

Broken-down Bridge Worries New Johnsonville Residents

first_imgThe New Johnsonville Bridge with a vehicle crossing the creek bed and worried residents hoping someone or an organization will come to their rescue.A dilapidated bridge servicing more than 2,000 residents and business entities in New Johnsonville in Paynesville is in urgent need of repair.Residents and several business owners in a SOS appeal told the Daily Observer that as the heavy rains arrive, they are worried about the expected difficulties the weather will bring.Private vehicles, commercial motorcyclists and other users plying the damaged and nearly collapsing bridge are constrained to use both sides of the creek bed to transport commuters of the densely populated community.Our reporter who toured the community recently observed many of the residents and business owners’ anxiety (worry) as the small creek begins to overflow.“Each time there is a heavy downpour, residents including the students remain stranded on either side of the creek for several hours,” resident William B. Harris said.One other situation that worries the residents is that most of them fetch drinking water from the nearby swamps and dilapidated hand pumps constructed by aid agencies two decades ago.According to residents, another added menace to their plight is that there are no social services such as schools, clinics and safe drinking water for such a fast growing population in that part of Paynesville.“Our current appeal goes beyond political boundaries,” teacher Emmanuel Dolo said.The chairman of the New Johnsonville Community, Roland Teah, said over the weekend that the first rehabilitation work on the bridge was carried out in 2012 through the collective efforts of residents and well-meaning partners.“I wish to plead with all Liberians at home and abroad to think about their kinsmen and women and help in the rehabilitation of our bridge before the rainy season comes into full swing,” Mr. Teah said.At the same time, Nurse Eva L. Dorwon, 52, said pregnant women and seriously ill persons continue to encounter serious difficulties reaching the nearest clinic at Mount Barclay.“I want to candidly admit to all Liberians everywhere that if nothing is done before the heavy rains come, a looming disaster should be anticipated at New Johnsonville,” Madam Dorwon warned.Community spokesman Jerry S. Stewart reiterated that their appeal is also directed to all leaders of political parties, humanitarian organizations and Liberians for the rehabilitation of the bridge.“I wish to emphatically state that we are making this appeal in the supreme interest of (helping us remain) connected to our business district of Red-Light Market,” said Mr. Stewart.Stewart also explained that the only Liberian government elementary school at Mt. Barclay is overcrowded due to a “sharp increase in student enrolment.”He envisions hardship for the students getting to and from school during heavy downpours.“We actually want for this damaged bridge to be repaired in order to assist our school going children and childbearing mothers from being late to school and hospital,” Mr. Stewart concluded.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
