    January 8, 2018 /  Football, Uncategorized
    Indomitable lions defender, Benoit Assou-Ekotto has told Reuters Cameroon’s suspension from international football by FIFA because of alleged government interference in the country’s football federation will be resolved.
    “It is sad to see the Cameroon federation in this kind of situation but I’m sure the problem will be solved soon and we will hopefully qualify for the World Cup,” the Tottenham Hotspur left back told the London based international news agency Friday.

    The temporal ban imposed by the world’s football governing body came soon after Cameroon learned they would top the qualifying group because Togo fielded an ineligible player against them.

    It’s feared that if the ban is not lifted by September 6 Cameroon will not be able to play their final game against Libya and may be expelled from the qualification process for the 2014 finals in Brazil.

    Assou-Ekotto, 29, who joined Tottenham in 2006 from Lens, told Reuters he was happy at White Hart Lane despite local media speculation that he might soon leave the club.

    Asked about his future, he said: “When you spend seven years somewhere it is obvious you are happy there. I am not a man who likes to swap his team every two or three years and the club is a part of my world. I want to stay at Tottenham.”
    Assou-Ekotto, known for his forthright opinions and social conscience, believes there is more to life than football and said it was important to give back to communities.

    Assou-Ekotto is expected in Cameroon on Monday July 8, with a charity that is helping to save the sight of millions. “I want to help people to have a better life,” he said, before heading for a remote village to administer the 250 millionth treatment for river blindness for the international development organisation Sightsavers.

    “As footballers we have a chance to do things that can save the life of someone and by this treatment we can help someone to enjoy life. I’d never heard of this treatment before and it will be a fantastic experience for me to go and learn about them.”

    The World Health Organisation estimates that 37 million people are infected by river blindness – or onchocerciasis – in Africa with over 300,000 people already blinded by the disease. It is transmitted through the bite of a black fly, which breeds in fast-flowing water.

  • Arsenal win for Wenger on Japanese return

    December 23, 2017 /  Football, Uncategorized

    Giroud sent the visitors on their way after just three minutes at a packed Toyota Stadium before Japanese midfielder Ryo Miyaichi got his debut Arsenal goal from the penalty spot. England’s Theo Walcott added a third after half-time before Kisho Yano gave Nagoya reason to cheer with a consolation strike 18 minutes from the end.

    “Of course it was a special event with almost a full crowd,” Wenger said afterwards. “I think especially in the first half we played with great fluency, created many chances and the game was very interesting.

    “In the second half, we were capable of maintaining the pace but we lost a bit of cohesion. Above all it was a very interesting game.”

    Arsenal had scored 14 goals in their games against the Indonesian Dream Team and Vietnam and there was no let-up in front of a record 42,919 fans — many of them red-shirted — in Toyota.

    With the action barely underway, Tomas Rosicky supplied the cross as Giroud climbed for a header which he buried past Nagoya goalkeeper Seigo Narazaki.

    Wenger deployed Miyaichi from the start and when Marcus Tulio Tanaka handled in the box, the promising youngster buried the spot-kick on 26 minutes for his first Arsenal goal and a 2-0 lead.

    Walcott was denied by the ‘keeper’s legs as Arsenal pressed for a third, while Yoshizumi Ogawa nearly reduced the arrears but scuffed his shot harmlessly.

    Arsenal resumed their assault after the break but Nagoya came close when their Australia striker Josh Kennedy volleyed over an empty goal under pressure from two defenders.

    Walcott repeatedly threatened for Arsenal and he stole in for their third goal — after a sumptuous pass from 16-year-old Gedion Zelalem — with a lifted shot over Nagoya ‘keeper Narazaki.

    The night was Arsenal’s but Nagoya were rewarded for their efforts when Kisho Yano planted a firm header past Lukasz Fabianski after a high cross from the right. “We didn’t give up, we tried until the end to score a second goal,” said Nagoya coach Dragan Stojkovic, who played under Wenger at the Japanese club.

    “It was a memorable day, a memorable game. Of course, they can go home very satisfied.” Arsenal, hoping to end an eight-year trophy drought this season, now travel to Saitama where they will play Japan’s Urawa Reds on Friday.

    Wenger had an 18-month stint as Nagoya manager before joining Arsenal in 1996 and embarking on a run which has yielded three Premier League titles and four FA Cup wins.
