Michael Olunga was in line to start, but pulled out of the team entirely after the warm up after aggravating a knock he picked up on Saturday and was replaced by Zesco United’s Jesse Were.Abadihno Mhango of Malawi against Kenya’s Atudo Jockins.

Pace and creativity lacked with none of the two sides bearing urgency to score.Malawi had the game’s first chance after 10 minutes, Gerald Phiri’s curling left foot freekick from range going wide with keeper Patrick Matasi un-troubled.Malawi’s Abadihni Mhango against Harambee Stars Ismail Gonzalez.

Some good team movement anchored by Ismail Gonzalez saw the midfielder pull the ball wide for Aboud Omar, but the left back’s attempt at goal with a shot from the left went over.Almost immediately, Eric Johanna had an ambitious effort trying to catch keeper Brighton Munthali off his line, but the effort went wide with the handful fans who had attended clapping in appreciation.Malawi came close in the 24th minute when Mhango Gabadinho beat Atudo with the ball, the youngster running into the edge of the area but his shot deflected off target for a corner that wasn’t put into good use.Matasi was called into action on the half hour mark making a brilliant save at his near post after Richard Mbulu connected in a cross from John Banda who had raced well away on the right after playing a quick one-two with Alfred Manyoro.Harambee Stars attacking midfielder Ovella Ochieng in action.

Stars solidified their base in defense and guarded the lone goal advantage.Five minutes to time, Joash Onyango made a superb low tackle to deny Gabadinho who was going in one on one with Matasi inside the box.

Solskjaer sorry after ‘unworthy’ United slump to Everton defeat

first_img0Shares0000Plenty to ponder: Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after defeat at Everton on Sunday © AFP / Oli SCARFFLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Apr 21 – Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer apologised to the club’s supporters for an “unworthy” 4-0 loss away to Everton on Sunday that did fresh damage to their hopes of Champions League football next season.Goals from Richarlison, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Lucas Digne and Theo Walcott inflicted United’s sixth defeat in eight games in all competitions, with the lacklustre manner of this latest reverse a cause for concern. “From the first whistle everything went wrong,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.“I just want to apologise to the fans. They’re the only people with the badge on today who can hold their heads high, because we can’t.”The former United striker added: “Everton were better than us at all the basics. There are so many things that we need to do better to get a result. Talent has never been enough.“We just didn’t perform. That was not worthy of a Manchester United team. We hold our hands up and apologise to everyone associated with the club. We have a perfect chance to make amends on Wednesday (against Manchester City).”But he insisted sixth-placed United could transform their fortunes before the end of the season.“We have been fantastic for long periods and it’s a tough league to get into the top four, never mind winning the league – there are six teams there and Everton want to be in there.“We can turn it around, in football like in life things can change quickly. We have got to change it from bad to good.”– Neville slams ‘rancid’ United –Gary Neville, a former United team-mate of Solskjaer has long been critical of the club’s hierarchy for the way in which a succession of managers have come and gone since Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.He did not spare the “rancid” team on Sunday.“The United players, it’s embarrassing watching some of them out there today,” Neville said.“I’m absolutely furious. Full belief in Ole to do what he needs to do, the club will obviously support him.“But there’s a big problem and I have to say that performance was rancid.”Everton, who had not beaten a ‘big six’ rival in 25 attempts before last month, have now won consecutive home matches against Chelsea, Arsenal and United while keeping three clean sheets in the process.“Delighted with the players, it’s important to remind you what we did in the last four home games — we’re on a fantastic run,” said Everton manager Marco Silva after a win made all the more impressive after the way his side lost 2-0 at already-relegated Fulham last weekend.“Our last performance away was not good enough and we must show something different, we did,” he added. “We were the best team on the pitch from the first to last minute.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Saido Berahino’s move to Tottenham could be ‘out of West Brom’s hands’, talkSPORT told

first_imgSaido Berahino’s proposed transfer to Tottenham could be out of West Brom’s hands, according to assistant manager Dave Kemp.Spurs have been linked with a move for the England under-21 international all summer and made an official bid for the player last week, which was promptly rejected by the Baggies.However, Kemp admits all the speculation has will have turned Berahino’s head and that the whether the move happens is not necessarily down to the club.“Saido’s been good in training, doing his work,” Pulis’ number two told Drivetime.“But you’re just sitting in the breakfast room and his name is coming up on the TV, linked with Tottenham, so your head is going to get turned.“He’s only a young lad but his attitude has been good. He’s a fabulous player and we’d be quite happy to keep him but these things get taken out of your hands sometimes.”last_img read more

DONEGAL VODAFONE CUSTOMERS BLAST NETWORK PROVIDER FOR ‘PATHETIC’ SERVICE

first_imgVodafone users are up in arms.Vodafone users in West Donegal have slammed the network provider for what they’ve described as an ‘unacceptable service’ over the last number of months.Despite strenuous efforts by users to Vodafone customer service personnel – their pleas for the situation to be resolved seems to have fallen on deaf ears.A spokesman at the global communications giant have stressed that they have made efforts to upgrade the service. Some locals have already left the network provider, after finally resigning themselves to the fact the problems were never going to be sorted.Catherine O’Donnell posted on her Facebook timeline, “To Vodafone Ireland, well I finally plucked up the courage and left your network after having s**t coverage for nearly a year.”“I went with 3 perfect coverage. Happy days. Hope many more follow as you don’t deserve customers.”Another local man Gerry Reynolds also expressed that he too had also had enough of their service, and like Catherine switched networks. Gerry said, “I left last week after repeatedly emails, calls and tweets that fell on deaf ears joined the new ID network and perfect signal and even 4g – Vodafone stick it up your a**e.”“Everybody on Vodafone should move and then even when they do decide to do something about it they will have no customers left. “The problem preventing other locals from switching network providers, is due to the fact many customers are tied down to contracts with Vodafone.They’re unable to get out of the contract until it finishes.Theresa McGonagle wrote, “I’m waiting hard on contract to finish too so I can change. Vodafone is brutal, can’t wait to leave them. Pathetic Service.” Some locals are advising that by law they may be able to get out of their contracts earlier that the terms and conditions initially agreed.Nicole Logan wrote, “I left three months ago, I was still was in contract. “But because I complained so much (as much as I could without service!!) and they kept promising they would fix it, they didn’t meet their promises as a company so by law I could leave my contract.”“Brutal service!!” Earlier this week Michelle Magee wrote, “What the flook is going on with the Vodafone signal??“Signal has never been great but now all my phone says is constantly ‘No Service’ So much for upgrading the service…my ass! Aaaarrrgh”A spokesman for Vodafone Ireland told Donegal Daily, “We were upgrading and modernising our network in Dungloe last week which resulted in some disruptions for customers – Friday through Sunday last week.“However, the upgrades will now mean that our customers in the area will now have improved voice coverage and in addition, will have 3G and 4G data.“Overall there will be a much improved experience for customers in Dungloe.“The upgrade means that customers will experience benefits such as significantly improved voice calls and get data everywhere they currently can make a voice call.“In addition, they will also have access to 4G which gives superfast mobile data speeds. This will provide benefits such as seamless music streaming, watching videos without buffering and instant file and photo upload.“All effort is being made to keep disruptions to a minimum during the upgrades across Donegal with the ultimate aim of delivering a much improved call and data experience to customers.DONEGAL VODAFONE CUSTOMERS BLAST NETWORK PROVIDER FOR ‘PATHETIC’ SERVICE was last modified: October 20th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalVodafonelast_img read more

Martial stars, good and bad of Pogba: Man United player ratings

first_img Rashford started ahead of the out-of-form Lukaku 4 A missed opportunity for Rashford who was in for the misfiring Lukaku. However, the England international was unable to make an impact on the game. His only chance came in the second-half which was saved by Pickford from an acute angle.Anthony Martial – 8Martial was the difference in the game. He won United’s penalty after being fouled by Idrissa Gueye before beautifully curling the ball into the bottom corner to make it 2-0. He missed a simple chance to seal the win in stoppage-time, however.SUB – Romelu Lukaku – 5He eventually came on in the 65th minute but Lukaku is still lacking confidence in front of goal and missed a big header in the second-half which could have made it less of a nervy end. huge blow 4 Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won REVEALED Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade Smalling nearly cost his team a valuable win RANKED 4 no dice getty Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move ADVICE MONEY REVEALED center_img Fred ran himself into the ground Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury Latest Football News Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade Nemanja Matic – 5Matic has had better games and will feel he could have protected his defenders a bit better from the Everton attack.Paul Pogba – 7His general play was very good but Pogba still showed his erratic side when he had his penalty saved after a tedious run-up. Fortunately for him, he got the rebound. Pogba also gave the ball away with a stupid flick in his own half that eventually led to Everton’s goal.Juan Mata – 7Mata put himself about well in the game and should have done better with a header in the first-half. Substituted for Herrera late on as United looked to close out the victory.Marcus Rashford – 5 Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions 4 Manchester United got themselves back to winning ways with a tense 2-1 victory over an in-form Everton at Old Trafford.Paul Pogba’s rebounded effort from a penalty and Anthony Martial’s delicious second-half strike put them in control of the game. Everton got quite a bit of joy going forward and came back into the game when Smalling needlessly dived in on Richarlison on the defender’s 300th appearance for United.Victor Lindelof – 5Off the back of his fine performance against Juventus, Lindelof looked reasonably competent at the back but the Toffees did have their fair share of chances.Luke Shaw – 6Shaw has been one of United’s star players this season but the left-back’s performance was fairly average by the very high standards he’s set himself.Fred – 6The Brazilian’s presence allowed the likes of Pogba a lot more freedom in the middle of the park but Fred didn’t look terribly threatening in the game. However, Gylfi Sigurdsson’s 77th-minute spot-kick set for a nervy ending but Jose Mourinho’s men held on and leapfrog their opponents in the Premier League table.So how did the Red Devils perform? Below you can see talkSPORT.com’s Manchester United player ratings.David de Gea – 5United’s brilliant custodian wasn’t called into action too many times but made a couple of decent saves from headers by Andre Gomes and Gylfi Sigurdsson in the first-half.Ashley Young – 5Was perhaps a bit lucky to escape a caution for a late tackle on Lucas Digne. Young had a good game otherwise.Chris Smalling – 4 BEST OF Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era?
