first_imgMorocco 0 Iran 1: Bouhaddouz own-goal gifts game to Queiroz’s men Stephen Creek Last updated 1 year ago 01:10 6/16/18 iran - Cropped Getty Images Morocco had by far the better of the chances before Aziz Bouhaddouz’s own goal handed victory to Iran. Aziz Bouhaddouz scored a calamitous own goal deep into second-half stoppage time as Morocco slipped to a 1-0 defeat to Iran in their first World Cup match for 20 years.The late drama sparked wild celebrations from the Iran bench in St Petersburg as Carlos Queiroz’s side took three points from a game in which they were second best for long periods.Herve Renard’s team were well-organised but Morocco extended their record of never having won their opening game in the tournament despite dominating the match and carving out opportunities to score either side of half-time.

Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Arsenal would be selling their soul with Mourinho move Iran’s counter-attacking strategy had failed to bear fruit with Karim Ansarifard and Sardar Azmoun squandering great chances until their wastefulness was rendered irrelevant by Bouhaddouz’s late error.The Morocco striker, on as a substitute in the 77th minute, put Ehsan Haji Safi’s free-kick through his own net with a diving header in the 95th minute of the game, leaving no time for a comeback.While Iran celebrated, Morocco faced up to the daunting reality of going into their remaining Group B games against Spain and Portugal with no points on the board.1 – Aziz Bouhaddouz is the first substitute to score an own goal in a World Cup match since Petit for Portugal against Germany in July 2006. Nightmare. #MARIRN #MAR #IRN #WorldCup pic.twitter.com/pZ6uL5mIFZ— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) June 15, 2018Morocco, competing at the World Cup finals for the first time in 20 years, started positively and Amine Harit fired wide with a volley from the edge of the penalty area after two minutes.Younes Belhanda headed past the post from Nordin Amrabat’s cross shortly after as Morocco found their way behind the Iran defence with ease, before Ayoub El Kaabi failed to test Alireza Beiranvand in the Iran goal when he swung wildly at a chance from 18 yards.The pressure on Iran was almost relentless, with Belhanda and captain Medhi Benatia squandering close-range chances in a penalty box scramble before Iran finally countered after 20 minutes, only for Karim Ansarifard to scuff his shot when clean through on goal.Harit’s neat footwork took him into the box and he drew a save from Beiranvand with a side-footed shot as Morocco continued to press.The best chance of the first half fell to Iran’s Sardar Azmoun, though, who bore down on goal after latching onto Omid Ebrahimi’s throughabll, but his shot was too low and Munir Mohamedi saved low with his feet.Amrabat continued to make inroads down the right flank for Morocco after the interval while their efficiency and organisation at the back cut out Iran’s counter-attacks before they reached the final third.With just under 20 minutes left on the clock, Amrabat fell awkwardly when challenging for the ball and the wing-back was left so dazed that he had to be replaced by his younger brother, Sofyan.Morocco pushed for a winner in the final 10 minutes and Hakim Ziyech lashed the ball towards the bottom-left corner of the net from 20 yards but Beiranvand pulled off a smart stop.And it proved an even more important save when Iran forced a free-kick wide on the left in the closing seconds and Safi’s delivery was met by a thunderbolt of a header from Bouhaddouz that flew into the left corner of the net, undoing Morocco’s hard work and leaving them with a mountain to climb to stay in the World Cup. Key Opta stats:- Morocco have never won their opening match at a World Cup tournament (D2 L3), also failing to win in 1970, 1986, 1994 and 1998.- Iran won just their second match at the World Cup (D3 L8), with this their first since beating USA in June 1998.- Iran did not attempt a single shot in the second half and were the first team since 1966 to score a goal in a half of World Cup football without attempting a shot.- Iran kept only their second World Cup clean sheet – their other came in a goalless draw with Nigeria in June 2014.- Aziz Bouhaddouz’s own-goal in the 95th minute was only the second own-goal scored in the 90th minute in a World Cup match, after Joseph Yobo for Nigeria against France in June 2014.- Carlos Queiroz has never lost against an African nation in the World Cup (W1 D2), keeping three clean sheets in those matches.- Aziz Bouhaddouz is just the third player to score an own-goal as a substitute in a World Cup match, after Laszlo Dajka (1986 for Hungary against USSR) and Petit (2006 for Portugal against Germany). read morelast_img read more

VAT Accountability demanded by Bahamians State Minister slammed over speech at PLP

first_img The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provo And they were, among them FNM Chairman, Sidney Collie who is now calling on the PLP Government to tell Bahamians the truth.  Collie is joined by the Democratic National Alliance and Greg Moss, the MP for Marco City who disagree with pronouncements by Mr. Halkitis.  In a media statement Collie said Bahamians will not believe the rhetoric and that Bahamians reject the new explanation that VAT monies did not go to pay off debt, but to fund projects.  In a radio talk show, Minister Halkitis was taken to task for the breakdown of the monies to projects.  The PLP Administration in this presentation by the State Minister also said it provided $12 million for the COB to University of The Bahamas transition and they have doubled scholarship funded from $7.73 million to $16.3 million.   Another $150 million to the National Health Insurance plan, $100 million to Bahamasair for a new fleet of aircraft and $232 million on border and marine resources protection.  No schools he was reminded have been built in four and a half years of the 2012 Perry Christie Administration, so what did he mean when he said VAT money went there… “We are building new schools and have invested tens of millions of dollars in repairs and upgrades of existing schools, thus empowering our young people.  That’s where the VAT money gone.”  Electricity Cost of Service Study among the big agenda items at September 11 Cabinet meeting However, when asked this week about spending on all of the above Mr. Halkitis had to give a different version of events.  The State Minister for Finance instead explained that VAT money was used to help secure the loan for Bahamasair new planes and needs for improved border security and that some of the VAT money has been earmarked for assistance with NHI – not yet spent as he said during convention.  Halkitis defended that he did not believe he misrepresented the facts in his presentation.  Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp ALERT # 2 ON POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE NINE ISSUED BY THE BAHAMAS DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY THURSDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2019 AT 9 PM EDT Related Items:#magneticmedianews Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNassau, Bahamas, January 31, 2017 – It sounded rhythmic and it did rouse the party base during the recent PLP convention but now Bahamians are blasting the State Minister for finance for making hyped up claims which many believe are simply untrue.   That’s where the VAT money went was the recurrent chorus by Michael Halkitis on opening night of the Progressive Liberal Party’s Convention but Opposition challenges, fact checking and media interviews do not bear those claims out and challenged the Minister firmly on his now controversial speech.  VAT was introduced in 2015 with tremendous national push back, still it passed into law that 7.5% would be charged on most goods and services.  The tax far exceeded expectations and reportedly raised around a billion dollars, with some $850 million said to have been collected. The question was a lingering one, where did the money from VAT go and so Minister Halkitis’ use of the PLP podium to make the announcement was a sound decision, thousands would be watching.  Still, those criticizing his speech express that they are more interested in hard facts, truths and evidence on the billion dollar VAT spending than they are with semantics.  Branville McCartney of the DNA called for the Central Revenue Agency which was supposed to be established as an oversight body for the Value Added Tax.  McCartney said the PLP is guilty of wasteful spending and went 100 times over budget and now the Party is using VAT money to make up for errors at tax payers’ expense.#MagneticMediaNewslast_img read more
