Defending Champions stay perfect, Naparima College comfortable in the hunt

By October 03, 2018

Defending Secondary Schools Football League Premiership division champions, Presentation College, have remained perfect, winning by their biggest margin of victory this season over newcomers Valencia Secondary. 

Valencia were swamped 5-0 against the defending champions, who hold just a two-point lead over Naparima College, who were also comfortable.

Naparima got goals from Tyrike Andrews in the14th, Isa Bramble in the 49th, and Jerome Pantor in the 56th to come away with a 3-0 victory.

Despite significant dominance in the first half, Naparima were only ahead through Andrews’ header, the big defender proving too powerful for his markers. Then Bramble benefitted from a poor clearance to slam home a rebound, while Pantor scored a penalty to make the points safe.

In other games on the day, San Juan North Secondary also kept winning after fighting to a 3-2 victory over Carapichaima East Secondary.

There was another 3-2 result on the day, as East Mucurapo clipped Fatima College by the odd goal in five.

St Mary’s College, who had found a way to win last week, were not so good away from home this week, as St Anthony’s College were comfortable 2-0 winners at home.

That result left St Mary’s College in 12th, while St Anthony’s find themselves in a battle with San Juan North Secondary for third place, just shading it at the moment with a single goal being the difference between the teams on 13 points.

The game between Trinity College Moka and the Queen’s Royal College was not played.

In the day’s other game, St Benedict’s College scored the only game of their game against St Augustine Secondary.

  • Palestine FA president's appeal rejected after 'inciting hatred' against Lionel Messi Palestine FA president's appeal rejected after 'inciting hatred' against Lionel Messi

    The Court of Arbitration for Sport has rejected the Palestine Football Association president's appeal against a 12-month ban for "inciting hatred and violence" against Lionel Messi.

    Ahead of Argentina's scheduled pre-World Cup friendly against Israel in June 2018, Jibril Rajoub spoke out about the match amid the conflict and political tension between Israelis and Palestinians.

    The match was due to take place in Teddy Stadium, Jerusalem, a ground built on land said to have belonged to a Palestinian village before its destruction in 1948.

    Rajoub urged fans to target Messi and incited them to burn shirts bearing the Barcelona star's name, with the match ultimately being cancelled.

    FIFA received a complaint from the Israeli Football Association and Rajoub was given a 12-month ban from all matches at any level until August 23, 2019, while also being fined 20,000 Swiss francs (€18,056).

    His appeal to FIFA was rejected in September, two months before he raised the case with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

    Rajoub has again been unsuccessful in fighting the punishment, with the CAS panel adjudging him to have "failed to establish that any procedural violations were committed in the proceedings before the FIFA disciplinary committee...  that could justify the annulment of such decisions".

    CAS, in its statement, added: "Accordingly, the CAS panel dismissed the appeal and confirmed FIFA appeal committee decision of 24 September 2018."

  • Asllani becomes first signing for Real Madrid's women's team Asllani becomes first signing for Real Madrid's women's team

    Kosovare Asllani has become the first signing for Real Madrid's women's team after a stellar Women's World Cup campaign with Sweden.

    Madrid have incorporated CD Tacon into their structure after completing a takeover of the club, announcing the merger last month.

    Tacon will keep their name for 2019-20 before being rebranded as Madrid, and their hopes of challenging Atletico Madrid and Barcelona following promotion to the top division have been boosted by the addition of Asllani.

    Asllani scored three goals as Sweden reached the semi-finals in France, where they lost 1-0 to Netherlands, her third strike coming in the third place play-off win over England.

    The former Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City forward joins from Linkopings and wrote on Twitter: "Proud to announce that I'll be the first official signing for Real Madrid/CD Tacon.

    "Excited to write history, to help build and be part of this team's journey from the very start. It'll be a dream to wear the most beautiful jersey in the world starting next season. HALA MADRID."

  • Mikel retires from international football Mikel retires from international football

    John Obi Mikel has announced his retirement from international football after helping Nigeria to third place in the Africa Cup of Nations.

    The Super Eagles lost to Algeria in the last four in Egypt, but atoned for that disappointment to a degree with a 1-0 win over Tunisia in the third place play-off.

    That game marked the last appearance in a Nigeria shirt for Mikel, who confirmed the end of his career for his country in a post on Instagram.

    It read: "Egypt is a country where I've started and have finished my national career. In 2006 I played my first official championship for my country. [The] 2019 Africa Cup of Nations marks my last championship for national team with Super Eagles. 

    "My national career started in 2003 [at the] under-17 World Cup and I'm grateful for the national team for placing me on the world arena and giving me an opportunity to show my skill and have an incredible national and international career.

    "At the age of 32 it's time for me to retire from the national team and let the youth take over, who've done an amazing job securing a bronze medal at AFCON 2019. 

    "Thank you to all my Nigerian supporters and to my country for all the trust, support and love you've shown me over the past 15 years.

    "Mikel am out!"

    MIkel won the AFCON in 2013 and collected a bronze medal at the 2016 Olympic Games, while he also featured for the Super Eagles at the 2014 and 2018 World Cups.
