Paul Pogba's header & an own goal by #NGA are the difference, as #FRA advances to the quarter-finals

A late Paul Pogba header and an own goal from Joseph Yobo saw France to a 2-0 win over Nigeria and place in the World Cup quarter-finals.

Didier Deschamps’ side created the better of the chances throughout an evenly-matched encounter and were able to flex their international muscles when required to get over the line.
Look who was there... Victor Moses

Nigeria had more than held their own up until the 79th minute when an error of judgement from goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama saw him flap at a set-piece and allow the ball to drop kindly for Pogba to nod into an empty net.
France then put the result beyond doubt in the first minute of stoppage-time when the lively Mathieu Valbuena wriggled away from a short corner and saw his low cross turned into his own net by an unfortunate Yobo, who was more concerned with preventing Antoine Griezmann from getting a touch.

Les Blues will now face Germany or Algeria in the last eight, while Nigeria are still waiting to grace that particular stage for the first time.

Got to give credit to goalie Vincent Enyeama - who proved why he is the best in the world cup. He just needs to be backed up

 Nigeria have lost all 3 of their World Cup second-round ties now. They've never reached the quarter finals.
We lost but showed how great we will be. #SuperEagles, Vincent Enyeama was my man of the match. Who was yours?

Costa Rica through to their first ever #WorldCup quarter-final beating Greece on penalties

Costa Rica gets to continue its dreamlike run at the World Cup after defeating Greece in a somnolent 1-1 game that had a penalty shootout tacked on as an exclamation point. Hailing from a country with a population roughly equal to that of Brooklyn and Queens combined, the Ticos have outlasted soccer titans and traditional powers to advance to their first World Cup quarterfinal.

“To the people in Costa Rica, those at home and on the streets, this is for you,” Coach Jorge Luis Pinto said.

The team’s next game, its next huge challenge, comes Saturday in Salvador against the Netherlands, which rallied Sunday afternoon to secure a thrilling late win over Mexico in Fortaleza. Little of that excitement carried over into the game here. Big Congrats to them

Netherlands winger Arjen Robben apologizes for 'diving' against Mexico


Arjen Robben of the Netherlands is tripped by Rafael Marquez of Mexico for a penalty during the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Round of 16 match between Netherlands and Mexico
Dutch winger Arjen Robben who was involved in another controversial penalty incident that won his side the round of 16 clash against Mexico, admits going to the ground easily earlier in the match.
The penalty won by Robben was clinically despatched by Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to win it for the Netherlands 2-1 against Mexico.

Robben, after the game apologized for a 'dive' in the first half but also backed the referee's decision to give a penalty to the Netherlands in the 2nd half.

"I have to be honest and must apologise," he told after the game. "One of the moments in the first half was a dive. Sometimes you get kicked, but that was not the case at that particular moment. I shouldn't have done that and I'm really upset with myself about it. It was a silly action,“ reports Telegraph.
However, he was quick to mention the other two penalty claims were legitimate. One of them was awarded to the Dutch side late in injury time that was converted from the spot by Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.


“The other one in the first half was a clear penalty. If that's not a spot-kick, then what is. "The one at the end was a just penalty call as well,” Robben said.

Robben also explained why Huntelaar took the spot-kick ahead of him tonight.
"Usually I am comfortable with taking a penalty, but this time I was the one who was tackled," he explained. "I felt comfortable that Huntelaar would capitalise.

10 Dead from Bauchi Bomb Blast yesterday

Residence gathered at the scene
An explosion in the red light district of northern Nigeria’s Bauchi city has killed 10 people and injured 14 others. The cause of the late Friday blast was not immediately clear, but Boko Haram Islamists have attacked Bauchi repeatedly during their five-year uprising aimed at creating a strict Islamic state in the north.
 
Bauchi state police spokesman Mohammed Haruna said the explosion went off at roughly 10:00 pm and targeted a building in the Bayan Gari neighbourhood on the outskirts of the city, widely known as a brothel.
Haruna said:
“Ten people were confirmed dead, while 14 others sustained various degrees of injury.
The entire area has been cordoned off and (the) scene secured.”
Bomb attacks on targets which Boko Haram has branded sinful – including bars, churches and schools teaching a Western curriculum – have formed a major part of the insurgency. Here are more photos from the scene this morning.

OMG!! This is very bad!! See How this Girl stabbed her mom to Death 151 times

A Colorado teenager, Isabella Yun-Mi Guzman, who actually stabbed her mother to death, 151 times, will not be going to jail after the judge declared her to be insane.

Isabella Yun-Mi Guzman, 19, killed her mother in their Aurora home in August 2013. Last December she pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity and was sent to a state mental hospital for an evaluation. And yesterday, during her court hearing, a judge reviewed the results of that mental evaluation and ruled that Guzman is not guilty by reason of insanity.

According to court records, on the fateful day 47-year-old Yun Mi Hoy lost her life, her daughter, Guzman stabbed her:

  • 35 times in the face,
  • 51 times in the neck
  • then 65 times on the other parts of her body before finishing her off by beating her with a baseball bat.

Isabella had grown 'more threatening and disrespectful' towards her mother moments leading up to her death. The day before her mother was killed, Isabella spat on her mother and sent her an email threatening: 'You will pay.'

Even on the day of the attack, Aurora police officers came to their house on a report of a family dispute. Officers said they found no hostility or rage at the house when they arrived.

Mrs Hoy had grown so scared of her daughter, that she had also called on her ex-husband, Isabella's father Robert Guzman, to speak to the teenager. And just three hours before Mrs Hoy was murdered, Robert Guzman paid a visit to the house his daughter lived in with his ex-wife and her new husband, Ryan Hoy.

As they sat in the backyard, he explained the importance of respecting your elders to his daughter and truly believed he had gotten through to her only to receive a call later on that Guzman had killed her mother..


Mrs Hoy's husband, Ryan Hoy, recounted what happened that night. According to him, his wife had just returned from work around 9:30pm when she went upstairs to take a shower. Mr. Hoy said he was eating when he heard a thumping sound upstairs and his wife calling his name.

He ran to the upstairs bathroom, but Isabella quickly shut and locked the door and he noticed blood streaming under the door. Soon after, Isabella emerged from the bathroom and walked out holding the knife, staring straight forward as she passed her stepfather and went downstairs.

Mr Hoy tried to revive his wife but knew she was already dead by the look in her eyes. And when police arrived, they officially pronounced Mrs Hoy dead.

After the killing, police say Guzman fled the home. She went to a woman's restroom at a nearby H Mart, washed her hair in the sink and changed her clothes. They say she told employees that she had been raped in Denver and asked them not to call police, because they would send her back home and she was in fear of her father.

And finally, when police tracked Guzman down the next day, she told them they had the wrong person. She said she was Samantha Gonzales from Cincinnati, Ohio. Police held up her ID card, but the teen said, 'It looks like me, but it's not.' Eventually police pulled out guns, ordered the teen to the ground, and took her into custody.

She has now been sent to the Colorado Mental Health Institute of Pueblo.

TERRIBLE ACCIDENT: 6 Dead along Lagos-Ibadan expressway



A fatal multiple vehicle accident occurred this morning June 27 along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway leaving at least six people dead and causing a traffic gridlock on the road. The accident happened around the Berger/Kara axis of the expressway and was caused by a truck trying to avoid another parked on the road since last month. Security agents are currently on ground to help manage the situation.

A Keke Driver Sold his Newly Born Son for N500,000

Baby’s mother, Chukwudi, Chiamaka
A middle-aged man was paraded by the police in Abia State on Thursday for allegedly selling his one-day-old son.

Ogbonna Chukwudi , 27, a tricycle operator and resident of Cool Park Street, Ogbo Hill, Aba, allegedly sold his only son few hours after his wife put to birth in a private birth centre also in Ogbo Hill. And according to the Police Commissioner, Adamu Ibrahim, the suspect had arranged with the nurse who operated the centre and a buyer was contacted.
He said:

“The incident took place on June 18, 2014. Luck, however, ran out on them when the
wife woke up and sought to see her baby. She was told by the husband that the baby was dead and had been buried.”
The commissioner said trouble ensued when the wife insisted that the grave of her baby must be shown to her which made the man threatened to kill her. A neighbour who overheard them alerted the policemen who intervened and later arrested the man and the accomplice-nurse, one Amarachi Chiamaka.

Further investigations, according to police led to the tracking down of the buyer .
“A preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect is a tricycle operator and was conveying the woman to a nearby bush where he intended to kill her,” the commissioner said.
He added that investigations were still on to recover the baby.
But the suspect, who confessed to the crime, blamed it on poverty. He added that his friend who sold the son for him shortchanged him as he (the friend) only gave him N140,000 out of the N500,000 proceed and bolted away with the balance.
There was, however, a mild drama as the nurse insisted that the deal was with the consent of the mother of the baby, adding that she had also previously sold her first baby. But the young woman denied the allegation, raining curses on the nurse.

She also tried to absolve her husband of any blame, heaping everything on the nurse. Unknown to her, the husband had already admitted his wrongs earlier while chatting with journalists. When she was told that her husband had confessed to the crime she became silent.

First time in their history, since 1982 Algeria through to final 16. Mashallah!

The awesome header that made it 1-1 .

This man will be giving Vladimir Putin nightmares for the next four years. So thrilled for Algeria!
Algeria has qualified for the World Cup knockout stages for the first time after Islam Slimani's headed equalizer gave his team a 1-1 draw against Russia on Thursday.
Algeria placed second in Group H behind Belgium, meaning it will meet Germany in the second round.
Russia dominated much of the match after taking the lead in the 6th minute when Alexander Kokorin powerfully headed in a left-foot cross from Dmitry Kombarov.
Slimani's 60th-minute equalizer came after Russia goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev failed to catch a swinging left-foot free kick from Yacine Brahimi. That was the second costly error that Akinfeev has made in the tournament for Russia.

USA thanks you Ronaldo!


T
he advances to the round of 16 — with a little help from Ronaldo


A dozen years ago, the U.S. needed Portugal to collapse in order to reach the World Cup round of 16. On Thursday, the Americans needed the Portuguese to step up, and they did.
RECIFE, Brazil— Twelve years ago, American fans sat glued to their televisions during the World Cup, gripped by the drama of not knowing if the U.S. national team would reach the knockout rounds. Only they weren’t watching the U.S. play. They watched Portugal take on South Korea, and on that night they needed South Korea to work some magic and for Portugal to collapse, which the Portuguese side did.

On Thursday, American fans were once again keeping tabs on a Portugal group finale, only this time they were hoping that Portugal could either tie or beat Ghana. Unlike 2002, the Portuguese finished strongly, with Cristiano Ronaldo delivering an 80th-minute winner that gave the U.S. the breathing room it needed to secure a place in the round of 16 despite dropping a 1-0 decision to Germany

Plagues before Boko Haram as mysterious snakes and bees attacks them

Like the Bible said about Pharaoh and the Israelites, let our Girls go "Boko Haram" or bear the wrath of God. For the Boko Haram we see, read or hear today, we shall see, read or hear of them no more !!!

What Nigerian Soldiers are finding hard to do, Snakes and Bees are coming to the rescue. Some Boko Haram members are now fleeing from their Sambisa Forest base to local government areas across Borno State due to the invasion of their camps in a mysterious manner, believed to be a spiritual attack.

One of the arrested sect members, Kolo Mustapha, confessed to Dailypost that snakes were attacking them in the forest and this is making their lives very difficult.
“They (our leaders) told us that it was the people of Chibok that are hunting us through diabolical means in the form of snakes.
Most of us are fleeing because there are too many snakes now in the forest, once they bite, they disappeared and the victims do not last for 24 hours...
“We were told that the people of Chibok local government are the ones turning into snake and attacking us in the forest,” he disclosed.

BOTH GHANA & PORTUGAL OUT!! Ghana Defeats itself and kick themselves out by themselves

Own Goal gives Portugal a lead and a restless mistake by the goal keeper ruined Ghana`s chance of going through.

Own goal has another World Cup goal, getting on the scoresheet for Portugal this time. João Moutinho juggled the ball past two defenders before sending it wide to Miguel Veluso. The resulting cross collided with John Boye, bouncing off with an unlucky deflection into the back of the Ghana net.
Ghana have scored the equalizer against Portugal, thanks to a header from Asamoah Gyan. The forward zipped up the right to meet the cross coming in from Kwadwo Asamoah on the left. Gyan's sharp header hit the ground, bouncing past Beto and into the back of the net.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who hit the crossbar in the first half, has notched his 50th international goal by netting against Ghana. Fatau Dauda, attempting to push the ball away, caused the ball to fall to the striker's feet. Although two Ghana defenders and the goalkeeper all rushed to prevent the damage, Ronaldo was too quick, slicing the ball into the back of the net to put Portugal out front.

SPLIT AND SURVIVE: Portugal and Ghana both could have been bounced after two matches but earned draws – or in the Black Stars' case, conceded one – to keep their hopes alive going into the third. Ghana were gunning for all three against Germany, roaring back from a 1-0 deficit to go up 2-1 in the second half, but Miroslav Klose equalized for Die Mannschaft to keep them atop the group. You might remember the other second-round match as well: the United States falling behind in the fifth minute, fighting back to take a 2-1 lead into the closing seconds – and then Eder stole the ball from Michael BradleyCristiano Ronaldo unleashed a laser of a cross from the right wing, and Silvestre Varela beat Geoff Cameron and headed the ball home.


Final Scores
USA 0-1 Germany, FINAL
Ghana 1-2 Portugal
