Edinson Cavani is going to be one of the stars of the summer. PSG striker ends contract this summer and does not intend to renew, aware that with Neymar junior, Mauro Icardi (they are expected to incorporate it in property) and Kylian Mbappé, you will not have as many opportunities in the starting eleven of Thomas Tuchel as he would like. 9 It is difficult to find a nine of such a level and surely there are several teams that fight to convince him. The Uruguayan was very close in winter to sign for the Atlético de MadridBut the negotiations broke down at the last moment. Now, L’Equipe echoes the Uruguayan media to explain that Boca Juniors is following in the footsteps of the footballer. The idea is for him to play alongside Carlos Tevez on the front xeneize and the player would be reduced to return to South America to be closer to home. In addition, he has repeatedly dropped that he would like to wear the Boca Juniors shirt: “Boca is a team that shoots me, I like it.” To make matters worse, his partner Leandro Paredes said last month that the Uruguayan would like to play in the Argentine club.

0Shares0000Western Stima captain Wesley Kembou goes down under a challenge from Sofapaka’s Soter Kayumba during a Kenyan Premier League match at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu on January 2, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluKISUMU, Kenya, Jan 2 – Sofapaka picked their third consecutive Kenyan Premier League 2018/2019 season draw after playing to a 1-1 stalemate with unbeaten Western Stima at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu on Thursday.In Nakuru, AFC Leopards finally picked up their first three points of the season with a 2-0 win over Posta Rangers who were under new coach John Kamau. Robinson Kamura scored a first half brace for Ingwe who moved their tally for the season to six points after picking three draws and a loss in their opening four games of the campaign.Meanwhile, Mathare United remained top of the standings with a 2-1 victory over winless Kenya Commercial Bank at the Kasarani Stadium.Cliff Nyakeya scored from the spot for his fourth goal of the season early in the first half before Clifford Alwanga doubled the tally for the slum boys five minutes to the break. Chris Onyango scored from the spot in the 92nd minute for KCB’s consolation.Nzoia Sugar and Tusker FC meanwhile also picked up identical 2-0 wins over Ulinzi Stars and Vihiga United respectively. Henry Ochieng scored twice for Nzoia against the soldiers while Sidney Ochieng grabbed a brace for Tusker at Ruaraka taking his season tally to three.In Awendo, Sony Sugar beat Kakamega Homeboyz 2-1 while Bandari and Zoo Kericho played to a barren stalemate in Kericho.Earlier, Mount Kenya United picked their first point of the season with a 1-1 draw at home against Kariobangi Sharks.At the Moi Stadium in Kisumu, captain of the day Elli Asieche scored the equalizer for Batoto ba Mungu to earn them a point against hosts Stima who had gone ahead via a Vincent Odongo goal.Coming off the backdrop of identical 2-2 draws, Sofapaka knew they needed to pick a win if their title credentials were to be taken seriously.After a slow start occasioned by the sweltering heat in Kisumu, Sofapaka showed signs of hunger and in the 12th minute, Asieche tried his luck with a shot from range which flew straight to keeper Samuel Odhiambo’s arms.In the 26th minute, Luke Ochieng pulled a brilliant tackle to sweep the ball off Umaru Kassumba’s feet as the Ugandan raced to a through ball from Mike Oduor.Stima should have gone ahead on the half hour mark when the Sofapaka backline was caught napping and Johanna Mwita sneaked behind them, but keeper Richard Aimo bailed out his defenders with a brilliant save with his foot.Three minutes later, Aimo had to make another great save to deny Odongo after Mwita’s cross had landed on his path isolated on the left.Coming back into the second half, Sofapaka were stunned because of lack of concentration, a quick throw-in catching the defense line in sixes and sevens and Odongo saw space with keeper Aimo out and swung the ball into the far left corner.Sofapaka though gave a response on the hour mark when Asieche swung the ball in from the edge of the six yard box after the Stima defense had failed to clear an Oduor cross.But Stima were already high in confidence and the introduction of Baron Oketch in attack had added some pace into the game. The former Ulinzi Stars and Gor Mahia man came close in the 66th minute when he left his marker for dead on the right but his shot was punched away by Aimo.Quarter of an hour to the end, John Avire who had been shushed by the Stima defense found a way through into the box sent in by another great Oduor ball, but his shot didn’t have enough power behind it, Stima keeper Odhiambo picking it easily.Ten minutes to the break, the hard working Oduor was unlucky to be denied by the bar when he cut in from the right to shoot with his weaker left foot.Despite increased pressure, Sofapaka could not change the color of the game with head coach Melis Medo growing extremely frustrated on the touchline.Sofapaka have now drawn three of their five games, winning one and losing the other.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

COAST Guard officials had to go to the aid of a tourist again today – after he was badly bitten by a dog.It’s the first reported incident of its kind in Malin Head this year.But it follows several incidents in the same area last year when FOUR tourists were bitten in separate incidents. That sparked a Garda probe.In a statement today, the Irish Coast Guard had to warn tourists going to Malin Head to be particularly careful.“People should be aware of this incident and several other incidents last year,” said a spokesperson.Tourists have been flocking to Ireland’s most northerly point this year – especially since more than 40 dolphins have taken up residence in the waters off the local beach. It brings to five the known number of incidents involving foreign visitors to the area.In August last year a Spanish tourist had to be taken to hospital after suffering horrific bite injuries.Then two Italian tourists ran to the Coast Guard station for help after also being attacked.That followed an incident last July in which Belgian tourist arrived in Malin town seeking help. He had horrendous leg injuries after being mauled.Gardai are probing the latest attack. Dolphins in the water at Malin head today. Tourists have been flocking there to see them.ANGER AS ANOTHER TOURIST SAVAGED BY A DOG AT MALIN HEAD was last modified: July 25th, 2014 by John2Share 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:bitecoast guarddog attackdolphinsdonegaldonegal daily newsInishowen NewsMalin Headrescue

A West Donegal man has said that a lung transplant would change his life forever.In an interview today on Barrscéalta on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta today, Paddy Ó Maoilchiaráin from Gort an Choirce, called on people to carry organ donor cards and spoke about how a new lung would change his life.Paddy became ill with shortness of breath in 2013, and he has been on the transplant list since April 2017. He said “It’s very difficult sometimes … You’re not able to do what you’d like to do. You might walk out to the car, but then you’d have to sit for five minutes to get your breath back… I might go up the stairs and then I have to sit for five minutes. And I always, always have the oxygen here going into my nose, I’m using it all the time, day and night. There’s no getting away from it.”Paddy explained how he had been called up to Dublin before Christmas as a set of lungs had become available, but unfortunately he was not the best match.He got the call at 3.05 pm and by 7.10 pm he was in the Mater Hospital in Dublin.“There were three of us in total, and the one who was the best match would get the lungs. They came in and told me that unfortunately I wasn’t the best match, that there was another closer match and that I’d be going home. It was a bit difficult at the time, but I said to myself at least someone will get the benefit and that maybe my day was coming soon.” Paddy, who is 57, has 60% capacity in one lung and 40% in the other, and his medical team are hopeful to get one good lung, and that that would be sufficient.“I think if I got a good lung that was 100%, I think I’d have another life altogether.”Paddy, who is on the lung transplant waiting list, said he would encourage everyone to carry a donor card.“I think it’s a great thing and that everyone should carry the card. I never thought about it myself until I got sick … but I think everyone should have one, it might help someone.”Paddy told Áine that he lost five and half stone in weight with Slimming World in order to be eligible for the transplant. He was working up until last year as a bus driver with Joe Mangan until he had to go on oxygen, a job he loved and that he misses greatly.
