US want to avoid the mistake we made in Iraq - President Trump

/ No Comments

News report indicate that, President Donald Trump has said a hasty US withdrawal from Afghanistan would leave a vacuum for terrorists to fill.

However, Mr Trump said, his original plan was to pull US forces out, but had instead decided to stay and "fight to win" - avoiding the mistakes made in Iraq.

However, the US president warned it was not a "blank cheque" for Afghanistan.

But, "America will work with the Afghan government, so long as we see commitment and progress".

US alleged that: "We have been paying Pakistan billions and billions of dollars - at the same time they are housing the very terrorists that we are fighting".

In a reaction, Pakistan denied the US claimed by saying: "There are no terrorist hideouts in Pakistan. We have operated against all terrorists, including the Haqqani network".

Ronald Koeman was disappointed after Man City goal

/ No Comments

Sky Sports report that, Everton manager Ronald Koeman was left frustrated following his side’s 1-1 draw with Manchester City on Monday night.

However, Everton took the lead through Wayne Rooney in the 35th minute at the Etihad only to be pegged back late on by Raheem Sterling’s late volley.

But, Ronald Koeman was unhappy that the Toffees had failed to hold on for three points.

He said: "We go to City it is always tough the way they play but I think the game plan was perfect". "We had a good defensive organisation. We left Otamendi on the ball. We had good man-marking against De Bruyne and Silva".

He added: "With the quality they have they will always create chances. We scored the goal and disappointed now, 1-0 up and 11 against 10. We did one wrong thing in the second half. We played too much the long ball instead of play short.

"That is a criticism of everyone on the pitch, not the defenders. Even with one less players on the pitch City that high quality team they will create and they will play. It is a good point, happy, we worked hard for that point."

Asked to comment on Rooney, who became only the second player to score 200 goals in the Premier League, he said: "I am not surprised about Wayne Rooney."

"I know how eager he was to come back to Everton. We are really happy that he is back.

"In the first game when we played Stoke at home, there was a difference between him and the rest about cleverness in the game, view of the game and also tonight he had a big impact on the final result".

Official report said, the suspect is 22-year-old Younes Abouyaaqoub.

Security reports said: "The manhunt has been extended across Europe".

US and South Korea are conducting annual military drills for 10 days

/ No Comments

News report indicate that, the US and South Korea are conducting annual military drills which consistently infuriate Pyongyang, despite appeals to halt the exercise.

According to BBC, last week North Korea said it would watch US actions, after it suspend its missile test towards US Pacific area.

In a reaction, North Korea has already condemned these drills as pouring "gasoline on fire".

But, Washington describes the drills as defensive in nature, but the North sees them as preparation for invasion.

China and Russia had in July proposed a halt on military exercises in exchange for a freeze on missile tests.

BBC said, Joseph Dunford, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, said last week that the military exercises were "not currently on the table as part of the negotiation at any level" and the Ulchi-Freedom Guardian (UFG) exercises were going ahead as planned.

About 17,500 US troops and 50,000 South Korean troops are involved in the exercises, which will last for about 10 days.

After North Korea's threats on Guam and an almost unprecedented war of words over Pyongyang's repeated missile tests, analysts have warned that the joint drills may be seen as a provocation at a particularly sensitive time.

Indian court grant a woman to divorce her husband

/ No Comments

Local media report has revealed that, an Indian woman has been granted permission to divorce her husband because he would not build a toilet in their home.

According to the report, the woman in her 20s had been married for five years, but had been forced to relieve herself in nearby fields.

Though, the Indian law only allows divorce in limited circumstances such as domestic violence or proven cruelty.

In the court, the siting judge said: "Forced open defecation was a form of torture and domestic violence".

The court, in the state of Rajasthan, said that women are often forced to wait until dark to travel to the open fields used instead of toilets.

According to Times of India quoted the court's judgement as saying: "We spend money on buying tobacco, liquor and mobile phones, but are unwilling to construct toilets to protect the dignity of our family".

Times news said: "In villages, women have to wait until sunset to answer nature's call. This is not only physical cruelty but also outraging the modesty of a woman."

Indian media said the woman had filed for divorce in 2015.

Gladbach win Köln 1:0, see the brief highlight

/ No Comments

According to Kicker, Simon Falette, Sebastien Haller and Jetro Willems all came close, with Falette's close-range header on 16 minutes squirming past a post.

As such, Jonathan de Guzman saw his 35th minute shot saved while Tim Kleindienst came as close as anyone to scoring for Freiburg with a left footed shot from the right side of the box that flew just off target with 36 minutes on the clock, and again on the stroke of half-time.

Marc-Oliver Kempf came close for the hosts just after the break but pulled his effort wide as Kevin-Prince Boateng headed wide at the other end on 69 minutes.

However, Falette was again unlucky with a late header that flew over the target as Florian Niederlechner smashed high and wide on 78 minutes.

Both sides kept creating chances, but it was their profligacy in front of goal that ensured this game ended in a goalless stalemate.

In the other Bundesliga game played on Sunday, Borussia Mönchengladbach defeated Köln 1-0 with Nico Elvedi on target on 49 minutes.

Thorgan Hazard was the first with an effort on target at the Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK that was well saved by Timo Horn.

Raffael skewed his early shot wide ahead of missed efforts from Lars Stindl and Ibrahima Traoré.

Jhon Córdoba saw his shot kept out as Köln tried to create some chances of their own, and while their were further efforts for both sides, it ended all square at the break.

Elvedi though changed the course of the tie when he buried a right footed shot from the centre of the area straight downt he centre of the goal.

Córdoba and Raffael came as closest to anyone to finding a second goal in the game as Leonardo Bittencourt headed just wide on 65 minutes.

It remained an open, end-to-end affair - but without further goals, the home side claimed an important win.

All the reports in full:

Freiburg 0 - 0 Eintracht Frankfurt

Borussia Mönchengladbach 1 - 0 Köln.

According to Kicker, Watzke is referring to the saga of Ousmane Dembele, who is serving an indefinite suspension for not attending training last week in an effort to force a move to Barcelona.

The CEO discussed the matter after BVB's victory over Wolfsburg on Saturday, saying to reporters: "We should not talk about how this looks for a club that is registered as stock company.

He added: "The whole Bundesliga should maybe see how important it is that we are showing strength now". "Dembele's behaviour is not only a topic on our door but could affect all 17 other clubs eventually.

He said: "So they can be happy that we are ramming down a big, fat stop sign".

Watzke also commented on the match - Dortmund's first leage encounter of the season - which saw his team score three unanswered goals against last season's relegation-battlers.

"I read everywhere that we would have problems in adjusting [to the new coach]. I didn't see any problems there. The team did well to follow the coach's instructions.

"We were very aggressive on attacking the ball, and still, I thought we had a good mix in winning the ball aggressively and calming the match down.

"That was a very mature performance. But we also don't have to overstate this, as it did not come as a surprise to us, because even if there are outside factors like Neymar [transferring to PSG] that we cannot influence we always had serenity within the club.

"Again, we mustn't overstate the win, but it was a very content performance," he added.

Klopp praise Liverpool players after victory over Crystal Palace

/ No Comments

News report says, Liverpool fc toiled for 73 minutes to breach the Palace defence, with Sadio Mane eventually breaking the deadlock to hand his side their first Premier League win of the season.

However, the Reds' back four were heavily criticised following last weekend's 3-3 draw at Watford, but Klopp insists his defence put in a much-improved showing in dealing with Palace's long-ball tactics.

Liverpool boss said: "Obviously my decision not to read the British press was one of the best I ever did in my life because were we already under pressure?".

"Yes, we were not 100 percent happy, but it's not a general problem. We have to work on it. If you want to start like this, then we defended outstandingly good today.

"I think last week against Huddersfield, Crystal Palace started really football-playing and then Huddersfield were 2-0 up. Then they became a little more direct and using Christian Benteke. I think we really defended this outstandingly good.

He say, "Ragnar Klavan and Joel Matip did really well in the protection. Joe Gomez and Robbo (Andrew Robertson) were really good. You cannot defend it differently, to be honest.

Klopp added: "One problem we had at Watford was we were too early too deep. If you know the other team plays long balls, you have to stay as high as possible as long as possible to create the space for your goalkeeper and use offside".

Arsene Wenger blame refree for not given his side penalty

/ No Comments

Sky Sports report that, Stoke debutant Jese Rodriguez scored the winner in the 47th minute, but the veteran Frenchman was not happy with the officials.

Thoufh, a 72nd-minute strike by Alexandre Lacazette effort ruled out for offside should have stood "100 per cent", according to Wenger, who also suggested that the Gunners should have been awarded a penalty in the first half when Hector Bellerin went down under a challenge from Mame Diouf.

"I believe it is the kind of night where you are angry,” said Wenger.

"That is because not only did we not score with the number of chances we had, we made stupid mistakes centrally for the goal, first by losing the ball and after by not defending properly.

"And on top of that as well I think we were unlucky with some decisions from the referee because we scored a regular goal."

Replays showed Lacazette's boot may have been offside when the ball was played to him before he fired in.

Wenger was adamant the goal should have stood: "One hundred per cent. I just watched it and it is not offside at all. Even his foot was not offside."

Then, when asked about the Bellerin-Diouf incident, he replied: "Yes, of course, but we know we don't get penalties.

"Look at the numbers and you will see. We had last year the highest (number of) penalties against us at home by a mile and the lowest number for us. So I give you just the numbers. I don't say anything else."
