U-20 World Cup final: Serbia beat Brazil in historic win

first_imgNemanja Maksimovic scored an 118th-minute goal on the counterattack to give Serbia a 2-1 victory over Brazil in extra time in the Under-20 World Cup final at North Harbour Stadium early Saturday morning.The game had been locked at 1-1 after 90 minutes, with Stanisa Mandic giving Serbia hope of their first title as an independent nation with 20 minutes remaining but Andreas Pereira equalised three minutes later.Heavy rain and strong cold winds had pounded New Zealand for the past three days and while fans were soaked during the earlier match for third place, the rain had stopped by the time the sold-out final kicked off.The Brazil goalkeeper, who had not conceded a goal since the eighth minute of their second group game against Hungary, was finally beaten when an unmarked Stanisa Mandic stroked the ball home in the 70th minute to end the streak at 571 minutes.Brazil, however, did not have to wait long for an equaliser, with Manchester United’s Pereira jinking his way past four defenders to level the match three minutes later for an excellent individual goal. Rajkovic produced another world-class save late in extra time, before his team-mates swept down field and Maksimovic was left one on one with Jean and he calmly slotted home to end Brazil’s hopes of a sixth world title. African bronzeIn the earlier match for third place, Adama Traoré produced two sensational long-range strikes to help Mali beat 10-man Senegal 3-1, first equalising with a curling left-footed free-kick in the 74th minute, 10 minutes after Senegal’s Ibrahima Wadji had opened the scoring.Traoré then blasted a right-foot shot past Ibrahima Sy before Diadie Samassekou completed the victory when he slotted home the third in added time.Sy and his Mali counterpart Djigui Diarra both saved penalties in the final 15 minutes. The Senegal defender Moussa Ba had been sent off in the final minute of the first half by the Egyptian referee, Ghead Grisha, for his second yellow card.–Follow Gary on Twitter: @garyalsmithlast_img read more

first_imgThe 2015/16 Ghana Rugby Club Championship (GRCC) is drawing to a close and will feature the top four teams who will battle for a place in the finals next week Saturday at the Accra Sports Stadium.The semi finals to be played this Saturday at the same venue, will feature Conquerors SC, first placed on the log after the round robin phase, against Idas Sports RFC who ended fourth on the log. In the second semi final Cosmos Buffaloes RFC, last year’s Champion, who placed second on the 2015/16 log will face the third placed Dansoman Hurricanes RFC.The matches are scheduled for kickoff at 11am and 1pm and will be preceded by various development activities including a training session for kids, matches between boys and girls, a match between two women’s 7s teams and a match between two second division teams.The President of the Ghana Rugby Football Union (GRFU), Mr. Herbert Mensah, said that he was impressed with the quality and level of Rugby displayed at the 2015/16 GRCC matches.“My administration and I would like to firstly again express our sincere condolences to World Rugby and the family and loved ones of Mr. Jean-Luc Barthe, Rugby Services Manager (Africa), who sadly and untimely passed away yesterday  in his home near Castres in France. He has served Rugby on the continent of Africa for the last fourteen years and will be missed by all,” Mr. Mensah said.“Rugby in Ghana has made noticeable progress since the 2014/15 Championship and even though there is ample space for further improvement it is gratifying to see that there is movement in the right direction,” Mr. Mensah said. According to Mr. Mensah his administration has identified a set of key strategic priorities for Ghana Rugby that include Best practice governance, overcoming the development dilemma – funding and resources, improving technical capabilities, improving and extending domestic competitions, international match exposure, grassroots or “Get Into Rugby” development and Women’s Rugby.Mr. Mensah continued to say,“Ghana Rugby is in an embryonic phase if you consider that a country like England has been affiliated to World Rugby for 126 years while Ghana Rugby only affiliated in 2004 or 114 years after England. That is, however, no excuse as long as the whole Rugby Family in Ghana focuses on the priorities and in fact schedule the priorities instead of just prioritising schedules. We have to do the right things right the first time!”  The action of the Ghana Rugby Club Championship will continue this Saturday at the Accra Sports Stadium with the semi finals featuring Conquerors SC, first placed on the log after the round robin phase, against Idas Sports RFC who ended fourth on the log. In the second semi final Cosmos Buffaloes RFC, last year’s Champion, who placed second on the 2015/16 log will face the third placed Dansoman Hurricanes RFC.   The GRCC matches are scheduled for kickoff at 11am and 1pm and will be preceded by various development activities including a training session for kids, matches between boys and girls, a match between two women’s 7s teams and a match between two second division teams.  Women’s Rugby is one of the strategic priorities of the Herbert Mensah led administration and will receive a lot of attention in the 2016/17 season.last_img read more

Those hard drives in your old, no longer used laptops and desktops may very well posses personal information that someone may be able to use to gain access bank accounts, credit cards, etc… Report Reply 0 replies · active 351 weeks ago +5 Vote up Vote down E-Waste Wellington · 351 weeks ago Hey JustMe, Go to E-Waste Wellington FB page and read about what we do with hard drives. Also, this article gives a name and number to contact for information destruction on PC’s and Laptop’s. Any computer recycled through us will have the data destroyed and the hard drive will be disassembled. Report Reply 1 reply · active 351 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down JustMe · 351 weeks ago I checked out your facebook page. But I don’t see any mention of the actual method you use. Just a vague statement…..”In accordance US Department of Defense standards, we GUARANTEE that after the cleansing process, all information will be forever purged.” Which DoDstandard? And which method do you use listed within that standard? And you perform this yourself (probably the most important aspect)? I think keeping this stuff out of landfills is a great endeavor. I would love to hear more about the process, as I have a few ‘leftovers’ sitting in the closet myself. Please don’t take my first comment as being directed towards you. But the general public is too eager to drop their unwanteds off with someone offering to help. I’ve heard of several horror stories with recycled cell phones. http://www.e-cycle.com/wireless-mobility-horror-s… This was an article not too long ago. Although it’s not a computer, I think it’s safe to say we have more sensitive information on our pcs. Caveat emptor. Report Reply Post a new comment Enter text right here!
