England 90 minutes from glory as Lionesses ease past Sweden in semi-final

Published

on

Now we can dare to dream after another magical night for the Lionesses.

Sarina Wiegman’s heroes are now just 90 minutes from glory and a place in English football history. Twelve months on from one of Wembley’s darkest days, the Lionesses have made themselves the sporting story of this summer.

It was Beth Mead again making all the headlines with another starring performance in a victory which almost had a sense of destiny. Then when England’s supersub Alessia Russo scored with a sensational back heel, the whole stadium started to sing: “Football’s Coming Home.”

It really does not get much better than this. The whole tournament has been such an important landmark for the women’s game that it is impossible not to think it will leave a lasting legacy. England were magnificent as they refused to succumb to more semi final heartbreak when lesser teams would have crumbled under the pressure.

You could sense the nerves and tension at times as England had lost their last three semi finals and Sweden gave them one hell of a scare. But the best quality within Wiegman’s squad is their mental strength because you could see they were utterly and completely determined not to let it happen for a fourth time.

They survived Sweden’s pressure, some self-inflicted scary moments to come out of the other side with a heroic victory. From the moment Mead opened the scoring, there was no looking back for England. In the end, it was a rout as they completely overwhelmed Sweden.

And now they have a wonderful chance to banish the memories of what happened for Gareth Southgate’s side at Wembley 12 months ago. England lost to Italy after a penalty shoot-out, the fans disgraced themselves and yet the atmospheres and crowds at this tournament have made it such a joy.

They stick with the team through the dark moments and you could even see England defender Harry Maguire in the stands cheering on the team. The Lionesses needed every bit of help they could get early on when Sweden dominated and it took some heroics from England keeper Mary Earps to keep the scores level.

Sofia Jakobsson, Stina Blackstenius and Fridolina Rolfö all went close for Sweden as England looked nervous, almost intimated by the expectation levels weighing heavily on their shoulders. But just like last week when they were struggling against Spain, they dug deep. They summoned up something special and took the lead against the run of play after 34 minutes as once again Mead got them going.

Elon Musk accuses Twitter of fraud in countersuit

Published

on

Elon Musk has accused the social media platform, Twitter, of fraudulently holding back information about the company as part of a countersuit.

The countersuit by the billionaire and Tesla CEO alleges that Twitter committed fraud, breach of contract, and violation of a securities law in Texas, where Musk lives.

Musk’s counterclaims were filed confidentially last week and unsealed in a filing late Thursday at the Delaware Chancery Court.

Musk offered to buy Twitter earlier this year, then tried to back out of the deal by claiming the social platform was infested with a larger number of “spam bots” and fake accounts than Twitter had disclosed.

Twitter sued to force him to complete the acquisition. Musk responded by filing his countersuit.

Musk’s attorneys argue in the countersuit that Twitter “misrepresentations or omissions” distorted the company’s value and caused Musk to agree in April to buy it at an inflated price. They said Twitter’s own disclosures revealed that it has 65 million fewer “monetizable daily active users,” who can be shown digital ads, than the 238 million that Twitter claims.

The filing also said most of Twitter’s ads are shown only to a sliver of the company’s user base.

Musk’s team also accused Twitter of making too many major changes in recent months without consulting Musk, including personnel decisions and allegedly disobeying social media restrictions imposed by the government of India, which is Twitter’s third largest market. Musk had pledged to make Twitter a haven for free speech but has also said it must comply with the local laws where it operates.

In an unexpected twist, Twitter filed its response denying Musk’s accusations before Musk’s own counterclaims surfaced.

Twitter called Musk’s reasoning “a story, imagined in an effort to escape a merger agreement that Musk no longer found attractive.” The company, in particular, took issue with Musk’s estimate of fake accounts, saying the analysis relied on a “generic web tool” that designated Musk’s own Twitter account as a likely bot.

“The result is a distortion that Musk is hoping will nonetheless make waves,” Twitter’s response said.

The case is scheduled to go to trial on October 17. The Delaware court handles many high-profile disputes between businesses, such as Twitter, that are incorporated there.
