#AFCONonCiti: Senegal hit Tunisia to qualify for first AFCON final in 17 years

first_imgAlaine Giresse: Tunisia coach: I am proud to be living this moment, I played in the final in 2002 as a player and now I am here as a coach. I feel honored to achieve this history with this amazing team because we have not qualified for 17 years. This was a great match and I think it will be put in the history of football. A Dylan Bronn own goal inside 10 minutes of added time saw Senegal book their first Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) final slot in 17 years after beating Tunisia’s Carthage Eagles 1-0 in a drama-filled match at the June 30 Stadium in Cairo on Sunday night.A fully contested tie saw the two sides miss a penalty each late in the second half, eight minutes apart. Tunisia had the first after 72 minutes which Ferjani Sassi missed while Senegal had their own in the 80th minute, missed by Henri Saivet.There was more drama in the final six minutes when initially, referee Bamlak Tessema gave Tunisia a penalty after an apparent handball, but after consulting the Video Assistant Referee (VAR), overturned the decision.Senegal, who are yet to win any Cup of Nations title despite playing the most number of matches at the flagship African tourney can now dare dream as their tactician Aliou Cisse makes history playing in two finals as a player (2002) and now as a coach.Senegal should have been up by at least two goals by half time. The Lions of Teranga had literally the lion’s share of possession and chances in the opening 45 with one of the three tournament top scorers Sadio Mane having the best of the evening.In the 37th minute, the Liverpool forward dribbled past keeper Hassen Mouez off a Mbaye Niang pass, but his eventual effort went wide. Just a minute before that, Niang had a good chance when off Mane’s touch from a Youssouf Sabaly cross, his shot on the half turn skied .Even before these two golden chances, Senegal had rattled the bar. In one of his many forays upfield from the left, Sabaly cut into some good shooting range but his rasping curling shot came thundering against the upright.Tunisia didn’t create much, save for some two half chances after being forced to play on the back foot for most of the first half. Bronn had a header off a Wahbi Khazri freekick deflected and from the resultant corner, Youssef Msakni headed over.Tunisia seemed to have picked lessons from their first half performance as they came back stronger in the second 45. Just two minutes after the restart Taha Khenissi missed one on one with the keeper chipping the ball over when he raced to a ball looped behind the defense.They had an even better chance in the 65th minute when Sassi’s backheel found sub Naim Slitti, but man of the match Alfred Gomis threw his body across the striker one on one to collect the ball.In the 72nd minute, Sassi’s shot came off Kalidou Koulibaly’s arms and the ref pointed to the spot. Sassi took responsibility and stepped forward from 12 yards but took a tame shot that was saved by Gomis.Eight minutes on the other end it was Senegal’s turn when substitute Ismaila Sarr was brought down but Saivet’s effort was saved by a full stretched Mouez.With no winner in regulation time, the match went to the full length and it was Senegal who would make the most of their luck after 100 minutes of football. Skipper Cheikou Kouyate’s freekick from the right bounced on Bronn’s head with keeper Mouez off his line.Senegal managed the remaining minutes to keep their dream of a maiden title alive, even with some late nerves that were calmed by the VAR.Total Man of the Match: Alfred Gomis (Senegal)What they said: Aliou Cisse – Senegal coachcenter_img Source: CAF This was a tough game and would have gone either way.

109 ex-Wales sugar workers still to receive severance pay

first_imgSome 109 former sugar workers of the Wales Estate will have to wait a little longer to receive their severance pay due to issues relating to the calculation of interest. This was relayed to Guyana Times on Saturday. It was also disclosed that a total of 238 workers received their termination benefits between Friday and Saturday.According to information obtained, the reported 109 unpaid workers were those who had taken up employment at the Uitvlugt, West Coast Demerara Estate.Many others had refused to do so after contending that it was unlawful for their employer, the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) to compel them to travel 22 miles from their point of origin at Wales.The court agreed with this position and as such the workers were awarded interest at four per cent per annum. This determination was made by Justice Sandil Kissoon in his ruling last week.Guyana Times was told that GuySuCo was waiting on the court order to guide the calculation for the workers.Thousands of dismissed sugar workers are finding great difficulty in securing alternative jobs following their retrenchment in late 2016. In early November, the National Assembly gave approval for almost $2.5 billion to cater for the remaining severance to 4723 sugar workers and Justice Fidela Corbin-Lincoln had also ruled in favour of the ex-employees, saying that they should be paid with interest in the range of four to six per cent.It took the court over a year to initially hear the Wales severance matter and the workers, their families, union and other supporters have been protesting for their legally entitled benefits.In fact, when Justice Kissoon ruled last Wednesday, just hours before, there was another protest organised outside Parliament Building where workers called for their severance.The workers who had opted to work at Uitvlugt will also receive one month’s pay with lieu of notice, coupled with their severance. It was initially 371 workers that were auguring for severance, but this was reduced after it was found that some former Wales employees had to come off the list as some were not entitled; some were deceased, and others could no longer be found in the country.Aside from Wales Estate closing in December 2017, the closures of Skeldon, Rose Hall and Enmore were all finalised as part of Government’s cost cutting measures.The latter three were later reopened under small operations as part of the Administration’s move to garner private investors.last_img read more

Harvard Business School Clears Up Blac Chynas Confusion

first_imgYep, Blac Chyna allegedly was never using the cream even though she was pushing the product in Lagos, Nigeria. It was a sad twist considered 77% of women in Nigeria use skin bleaching creams. According to the World Health Organization, chemicals in skin bleaching creams can cause liver damage, reduced resistance to infections, anxiety, depression and psychosis.Chyna clearly has a psychosis even without the cream.SEE ALSO:Meet Jogger Joe, The Man Who Took Racist Cue From BBQ Becky In Tossing Homeless Man’s ClothesTrump-Supporting DA Calls ‘Ghetto’ Maxine Waters A ‘Bitch,’ Can’t Believe She Hasn’t Been ShotThis Colin Kaepernick Retweet Says Everything You Need To Know About The NFL Players’ Anthem Grievance Meghan McCain Whines That She Can’t Attack llhan Omar Because Trump Is Too Racist Earlier in the week, Blac Chyna, announced she would be attending Harvard Business School. Well, the Ivy League university said that was a hard no for them, which points to more scam-like behavior from the reality TV star whose given name is Angela White.SEE ALSO: Kim Porter, Model And Mother Of Diddy’s Children, Dies“Harvard Business School Online has not admitted nor provided an acceptance letter to a person named Angela White,” the esteemed college said in a statement to TMZ. Blac Chyna’s application was supposedly approved Monday.“Where I’m at now is a stage of realization and growth,” the 30-year-old told TMZ at the time. “I want to be great for myself and my kids. School is going to help me take things up a couple of notches. People are always talking about me, might as well talk about the good. I’m excited for the next chapter.”Well, they probably aren’t talking about the good now.The business school program is a 40-hour, 8-week business analytics course aimed to help students develop a data mindset and the analytical skills to interpret and communicate data. TMZ wrote that Blac Chyna was made aware of the program via Christian Emiliano, who refers to himself as Social Media Renaissance Man. His email pitch read, “Our team will complete all the course work for you, all you have to do is take one test (we will provide you the study guide) and then take credit for the program.”TMZ claimed that Blac Chyna’s people “acknowledge they got Christian’s pitch, Chyna never hired him and decided to take the course on her own. Christian confirmed that to us as well.”As of Friday morning, Black Chyna had not responded to Harvard saying she was not accepted.Blac Chyna was involved in other foolishness back in November when she traveled to Africa to promote the offensively titled skin-bleaching cream, “Whitenicious x Blac Chyna Collection.” The alleged toxins cost $250.She had been babbling that she uses the skin cream, but it was later reported that she never once did.“Despite her partnership with Whitenicious by Dencia to roll out her ‘Whitenicious X BlacChyna Diamond Illuminating & Lightening Cream,’ she’s never applied it to her own skin. We’re told BC was presented with a business opportunity and offered good money to promote the cream — which goes for $250 per Swarovski crystals-studded jar — so she said yes,” TMZ wrote in November.
