CAFCL: Hearts Of Oak Secure Slim Advantage Against WAC Ahead Of 2nd Leg

Published

on

Accra Hearts of Oak recorded a 1-0 victory over Moroccan giants Wydad Athletic Club in Accra to secure a slim advantage ahead of the return leg of their CAF Champions League second round qualifying match in a week’s time.

Isaac Mensah’s first half strike was the difference in a highly competitive game in front of 2,000 fans approved by CAF to watch the game.

After a difficult opening first half hour, where the Phobians came under incessant pressure from the Moroccans, Samuel Boadu’s men turned on the screws in the last ten minutes before the half time break with a string of fascinating attacking moves.

Salifu forced a superb save from the WAC goalkeeper moments after Daniel Afriyie thought he should have had a penalty after being brought down by Tagnatoui in goal for WAC.

But it did not take long for Hearts of Oak to find the opening. Salifu’s inch-perfect cross from the left was connected on the volley from 6 yards out by Isaac Mensah, sending the fans in the Accra Stadium into rupture.

The first half ended with the 2000 CAF Champions League winners in the lead.

The second half started much the same way the first ended; with Hearts of Oak looking to double their lead.

Salifu was presented the best opportunity when Kofi Kordzi’s showed strength to fend of WAC defenders before laying the ball onto Salifu but the former Techiman Eleven Wonders midfielder sent his shot flying over the bar from 15 yards out.

Moments later, Kordzi himself then fired a vicious left footed strike into the near post but Tagnatoui was alert palmed it away from danger.

Boadu brought on Victor Aidoo and Agyenim Boateng to replace Salifu and Kordzi in search of their elusive second goal but a string of constant refereeing calls prevented the Ghana Premier League champions from building any sort of rhythm.

Late on, WAC found the back of the net but there was sigh of relief when the assistant referee flagged for offside.

Hearts of Oak will immediately turn their attentions to the second leg scheduled for next Sunday October 24 in Casablanca.

Winner of this fixture over two legs will progress to the group stages of the Champions League, while the loser will play in their last round of qualifiers for CAF’s second tier inter-club competition, the Confederation Cup, for a place in the group stages of that competition.

Parliament Rejects 2022 Budget After NPP MPs Walked Out

Published

on

Parliament has rejected the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy read in the House by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, last week.

Members on the Majority side of Parliament staged a walkout on Friday, November 26, 2021, following a disagreement over a directive by the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, for non-MPs to vacate the Chamber.

The Majority’s actions did not prevent the House from continuing with the business of the day as the budget received a rejection by solely NDC MPs.

The Majority MPs demanded that General Secretary of the NDC Johnson Asiedu Nketia who was seated in the public gallery leaves Parliament before they continue with the business of the House.

“Clearly, the No’s have it. The motion is accordingly lost,” the Speaker ruled.

Mr Asiedu Nketia ignored their request which infuriated the Majority MPs who walked out of the Chamber, leaving only members on the Minority side.

The Speaker of Parliament thus suspended the sitting for five minutes after which the business of the day proceeded.

A last-minute request by the Finance Minister to meet with the leadership of the House was turned down by MPs after the Speaker of Parliament announced that the ‘Nos’ had won the voice vote.

Jake Paul Claims Floyd Mayweather Tried To Get Him Assassinated In Miami

Published

YouTube personality-turned boxer, Jake Paul claimed undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather tried to have him assassinated earlier this year.

Paul and Mayweather were involved in a heated confrontation at a pre-fight press conference for the former world champion’s exhibition bout with his brother Logan Paul in June.

Mayweather had his hat stolen by Paul, who said “got ya hat” as he ran off, with a brawl ensuing backstage at the event afterward.

Paul then went on to mock Mayweather on social media, selling merchandise with the “got ya hat” phrase emblazoned upon it, and even got the phrase tattooed on his calf afterward.

Mayweather was incensed by Paul, with the 24-year-old now claiming that the retired boxer wanted to “kill” him due to the stunt.

Speaking on the FULL SEND podcast in September, Paul said: “He was trying to get me killed behind the scenes, for sure.

“He was calling, like, ‘the gangsters,’ because we were in Miami at the time. He was, like, calling the ‘street people,’ ’cause my security is tapped into the street people.

“They were like, ‘Yo, you guys gotta be f**king careful. He’s trying to do something.

“So, whatever the f**k that meant, or means… I was like, ‘Alright, if this is how I die, this is how I die.’”

No winner was declared when Mayweather fought his older brother in Miami in June, with the eight-round bout rounding off a card that also included Badou Jack.
