Gray’s Injury-Time Strike Helps Everton Beat Arsenal

Published

on

Demarai Gray’s superb injury-time strike earned Everton a first win in nine games to end a bruising week with a stunning comeback against Arsenal.

After a week in which the hosts were thumped by Liverpool and director of football Marcel Brands left the club, Rafael Benitez’s team responded with a much-improved display that showed the character and resilience fans were looking for.

Richarlison had brought Everton level with 10 minutes of normal time remaining after Martin Odegaard scored the game’s opener from Kieran Tierney’s cross in first-half stoppage time.

That the winner came after Richarlison had also had two goals ruled out for offside by the video assistant referee before getting the equaliser will only have added to the home fans’ delight.

The scenes at the final whistle were a complete turnaround from last Wednesday, when the mood turned ugly after a 4-1 defeat by their city rivals.

Victory lifts Everton to 12th in the table, eight points above the relegation zone.

Claudio Ranieri Sacked By Watford

Claudio Ranieri has been sacked by Watford after just over three months in charge, with the club lying 19th in the Premier League.

Ranieri has failed to turn around the team’s fortunes since being appointed in October, with the Hornets dropping into the Premier League relegation zone for the first time this season after Friday’s 3-0 home defeat to fellow strugglers Norwich.

Asked about his future after the loss to the Canaries, the former Leicester and Chelsea manager said: “I don’t go away. I want to continue because I am a fighter. I’ve never given up in my career.”

Under Ranieri, Watford have lost seven of their last eight league matches. Their most recent victory was the 4-1 defeat of Manchester United in November at Vicarage Road

Ranieri replaced Xisco Munoz, who took charge of Watford’s first seven Premier League matches during this campaign, winning two and losing four. Munoz had overseen the Hornets’ promotion to the top flight last season.

Ranieri’s first match in charge was the 5-0 thrashing by Liverpool at home on October 16, but he recorded his first win in his next game – a 5-2 victory at Everton.

But the 4-1 win over United proved to be Ranieri’s second and final victory as Watford manager. He lost 11 of his 14 matches in charge.

Uniformed Suspect In Buipe Robbery Incident Not A Soldier : Ghana Armed Forces Says

Published

on

Investigations conducted by the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) has revealed that the suspect wearing a military camouflage uniform arrested in a robbery incident at Buipe in the Savannah Region is not a recognised solder.

Police reports indicated that the five suspects, including the man posing as a military officer, were arrested after snatching a 2012 Toyota Camry vehicle from its owner at gunpoint in Tamale.

The police also retrieved a G3 rifle and a pistol, military uniforms, and voter ID cards.

But reacting to the matter, the Acting Director of Public Relations of the Ghana Armed Forces, Commander Andy La- Anyane, clarified that the suspect is not a soldier of the Ghana Armed Forces, and expressed worry about the increasing spate of impersonation by civilians.

“The attention of the Ghana Armed Forces has been drawn to several videos and pictures on various social media platforms of the arrest of a car snatching syndicate at Buipe alleged to have attacked and snatched a car from a victim at Tamale. In the said videos and pictures, one of the suspects is seen wearing a military camouflage uniform and has been described variously as a soldier of the Ghana Armed Forces.”

“We wish to state categorically that the suspect is not a soldier of the Ghana Armed Forces. The Armed Forces is worried about the rising spate of impersonation by civilians, either wearing military uniforms or posting of fake pictures of themselves as military officers to defraud unsuspecting Ghanaians.”

Commander Andy La- Anyane pinned the trend on the unauthorized sale of military uniforms and military pattern gadgets by some vendors, saying such action is inimical to national security.

The Ghana Armed Forces also assured of collaboration with the Ghana Police Service to unravel the source of the military uniforms in the incident and also stop the unauthorized sale of military uniforms across the country.

“Ghanaians should be confident to provide information to the security agencies in order to nip this trend in the bud.”

It further advised the public to be circumspect in dealing with persons who pose as military personnel.

“Please contact the Directorate of Public Relations on 0544338030 when in doubt.”
