Team France won the World Cup, not Team Africa

first_imgDear Editor,FIFA World Cup Soccer 2018 has just come to a close, and I am sure it will be memorable for the many fans that were glued to their television sets. We have witnessed many disappointments, and the one that blew me away was when Team Germany was eliminated and didn’t make it to the last 16.Having read many reports via international newscasts, and reading the many reports on social media, I was elated to read that no player failed a drugs test at the FIFA WCS 2018. Most memorable for me… Apparently, it’s catching on that it’s not worth the risk. Not sure if WADA International was assigned to conduct the testing, or whether FIFA had another agency contracted, but no negative result was detected, and hats off to whichever agency was responsible for the testing.Team France played impressively, and deserved the win. However, my hopes were crashed, because I expected Team Belgium and Team Croatia to battle it out for the championships. Matters not what any group is protesting about, I will never support any group which invades play at any sport event to be heard. Sports events are not grounds to take your message. Yes, you can protest outside the venue, which is okay by me.I observed on social media forums that persons were advertising a message that reads ‘Africa has won the world Cup.’..Un-believable to read such a message.The World Cup was won by a country (France), and Africa is a continent. I respect the fact that players on Team France originated from countries in the African Continent, but, at the end of the day, I will put my head on a block and say that their respective passports read ‘French’ as their nationality. It’s common sense that players would have given up their rights to the country of their birth and been granted citizenship by the French Government.Perhaps some might have being born to parents residing in France, who migrated from their respective African country.I honestly doubt that any player was placed at gunpoint or had been forced to accept French citizenship. They made a choice, and it allowed them to represent the flag of their adopted home country. Perhaps their countries of birth could never provide or pave the way for a soccer career, and by switching flags, it was probably the best decision, which made them world famous and wealthy to some extent.Yours faithfully,T.

Is Harry Redknapp going to get himself a new daughter-in-law?

first_imgEmily asking Harry if Jamie was single would literally be me😂 #imAceleb— Shan (@shanemiIy) December 5, 2018 Wanting Emily’s confidence right now👌 questioning Harry about Jamie Redknapp being single 💁‍♀️ millions of people watching, Saw an opportunity and went for it. Completely fair play 😂👏 #imaceleb @EmAtack pic.twitter.com/Cf63bU8yzg— corina roissetter (@Corina56789) December 4, 2018 Rare footage of Harry Redknapp third wheeling for Jamie and Emily when he leaves the jungle #ImACeleb pic.twitter.com/bs6pFcvKu4— Jasmin (@ItsJasminHere) December 4, 2018 Emily is going to have to fight me for him…. Jamie Redknapp 😍 childhood crush! Imagine having Harry as a father in law too! 🤗 #ImACeleb— Lauren Whiteman (@LaurenWhiteman) December 4, 2018Harry and his potential new daughter-in-law Emily, alongside Nick Knowles, had to put in the performance of a lifetime in the Bushtucker Trial.The challenge saw Harry and Nick lie in separate cages while Emily dropped a number of nasty critters onto them.Hosts Holly Willoughby and Declan Donnelly asked how Harry and Nick were feeling just before it started and, well, only Harry knows what he was trying to say! 2 2 Has Harry found his son Jamie a new partner? That was a close one, @hollywills! 😂🙈 #ImACeleb pic.twitter.com/vv0HaFqXAn— I’m A Celebrity… (@imacelebrity) December 4, 2018But the trial did get more difficult for Harry after Emily was forced to place two rats on him.At first, Harry was gutted to hear this as he said rats were his biggest fear going into the show.Remember though, Harry worked in football for over 50 years – so he’s probably come across his fair share of rats in his time!He dealt with these ones perfectly and even asked Holly and Dec if either of them were named Roland – after the 1980s British puppet character, Roland Rat.That was the worst of it, and although Harry had to deal with crocodiles and a huntsman spider later on, that part of the challenge was a doddle as the trio managed to secure eight out of a possible eight meals for camp.center_img Umm, we may have broken Harry Redknapp. Sorry Sandra. #ImACeleb pic.twitter.com/On5n5e7o9U— I’m A Celebrity… (@imacelebrity) December 4, 2018The former West Ham, Tottenham, Southampton and Bournemouth boss had a toad dropped on his face to start with and Harry made a classic Harry joke, saying: “Toad in the hole, that’s my favourite dinner!”The toad with Harry didn’t give him a lot of trouble and was quite happy to do its own thing, unlike Nick’s. Who needs dating apps when you can go straight to your future father in law 🤣#ImACeleb @EmAtack @Redknapp pic.twitter.com/INGzABG7fT— ITV (@ITV) December 4, 2018Harry said his second son was single after it was confirmed earlier this year that Jamie and his wife of 20 years, former popstar Louise Redknapp, had finalised their divorce.Jamie has been blessed with dashing good looks and comes across a nice chap when working as a pundit for Sky Sports, if I do say so myself.And Harry’s son being back on the market certainly got these fans of the show very excited indeed! Harry showed once again he’s made of sterner stuff Emily asking Harry Redknapp is Jamie single 😂😂😂 my actual spirit animal 😂 #ImACeleb— Courtney Carey (@CourtneyCarey22) December 5, 2018 Is Harry Redknapp about to get a new daughter-in-law?Well, the celebrity wedding of recent years could well be on after actor Emily Atack asked if Harry’s son, ex-Liverpool, Tottenham and Southampton and Bournemouth footballer Jamie Redknapp was single in last night’s episode of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. Last night’s episode of I’m a Celeb also saw Harry finally receive his letter from home and it was from his wife Sandra, of course.Get the I’m A Celeb gossip every day with Jamie East’s brand new behind-the-scenes podcastThere were emotional scenes all over the place when the other celebs received their letters from home, but Sandra’s letter showed that it’s not just Harry who likes cracking jokes in the Redknapp household after she said a jam roly-poly was waiting for him once he left the jungle!Whether that will be tonight or even on the final day on Sunday remains to be seen, but he’s got to be a shoe-in for that final!last_img read more

Rampaging Kings seek IPL glory, resilient KKR stand in way

first_imgThe focus has remained firmly on cricket this time around and in what seems to be the perfect finale, the season’s most consistent team Kings XI Punjab would eye a maiden triumph against the ever-resilient Kolkata Knight Riders in the title clash of the seventh Indian Premier League here on Sunday.After a few controversy-marred seasons, the IPL organisers can finally heave a sigh of relief with the ongoing edition passing off rather smoothly.Having cracked a 58-ball 122 that paved the way for KXIP’s entry into their first IPL final, veteran opener Virender Sehwag along with Glenn Maxwell and David Miller will be the biggest threat for KKR, who will bank on their strong bowling unit, led by Sunil Narine.Players from both sides will have their job cut out as they will look to gift their owners Shah Rukh Khan and Priety Zinta, who had played on-screen lovers in Bollywood film Veer-Zaara, the trophy.Unlike Kolkata, who have won the title once before, Punjab have never been a part of the finals.For Kolkata, to repeat the feat of lifting the trophy for the second time, however, will be a daunting task considering the opponents they are faced with.Kolkata will also have to cope with Maxwell, who is among the top run-getters this season.Boasting of a strong middle-order in Miller, Manan Vohra, skipper George Bailey and Wriddhiman Saha, KXIP should not worry too much about Maxwell’s lean patch of late.The 25-year-old Australian will like to take a leaf out of his 90-plus run knocks in Abu Dhabi and Cuttack in the group stage of the tournament.advertisementlast_img read more
