Coach Opeele: Stars face formidable odds in Brazil

Posted On Aug 28 2020 by

first_imgGhana Coach and sports analyst Isaac “Opeele” Boateng claims the Black Stars are not favored by events at this year’s World Cup tournament in Brazil which kick starts on June 12.The former Ghana national U-17 team coach has emphatically stated that, no African team has ever qualified from group G at the competition as Ghana finds itself now.The Black Stars are hoping to improve upon performances at previous tournaments that is the one-sixteenth stage and quarter finals in 2006 and 2010 respectively.But coach Opeele believes the Black Stars must work extra hard to turn the tables in their favour, if not, calamity will befall them.Citing examples of the tricky situation the Stars find themselves Coach Opeele said: “Tunisia in 98 failed to qualify from Group G likewise Togo in 2006 and Cote D’Ivoire on 2010,” he said on Asempa Fm.“I’m warning Ghanaians to stop all these hullabaloo about budget, bonuses in other for the team to stay focused ahead of the Mundial.  He added: “Do you know anytime an African team goes to the world cup and Belgium is found in the last group, the African side doesn’t progress? In 1994, Belgium was in the last group and Cameroun did not progress even though they had played in the 1990 knockout stage, Nigeria in 2002 suffered the same thing and had played in the 98 knockout stage, Belgium was in the last group.”[Coincidentally the Black Stars who qualified into the knockout stage in the 2010 World Cup are in Group G in the 2014 World Cup and Belgium finds itself in Group H. The interesting thing is Belgium always finds itself with a European, Asian and North African teams; it was the same with Cameroun in 94, Nigeria in 2002. In 2014 Belgium has the likes of Algeria from North Africa, Russia from Europe and Korea from Asia in the last Group H. Ghana is pegged in Group G with the likes of Germany, Portugal and USA.last_img read more

PHIL Identifies with St. Paul Bridge Community

Posted On Jan 14 2020 by

first_imgThe Public Health Initiative Liberia (PHIL), a non-governmental organization, last weekend provided an assortment of Ebola preventive materials to the St. Paul Bridge Community in Monrovia.The items, estimated at US$1,600, included buckets, soap, clora, and chlorine.PHIL’s Executive Director Madam Joyce Kilikpo explained that her organization is concerned about the recent Ebola outbreak in the St. Paul Bridge Community.According to her, PHIL’s donation of the Ebola preventive items to the community was intended to buttress the Liberian government’s efforts to eradicate the virus from the country.Director Kilikpo said since the beginning of the Ebola outbreak PHIL has carried out a series of activities, including donations to various affected communities in and out of Montserrado County.Mrs. Kilikpo pointed out that the organization is responding to the call made by health authorities, asking all Liberians to join in the fight against the deadly Ebola disease.The Executive Director, however, said that her organization is also concerned about Ebola survivors, as well as Ebola orphans.Director Kilikpo explained that PHIL was providing support to 20 Ebola survivors and orphans through their psycho-social program.Receiving the donation, Mr. Saah B. Harris, chairman of Block C said, “Whenever you tell a sick person sorry, that does not necessarily mean they will get well, but it implies that you are concerned about them.”He said further that the Liberian government and its foreign partners cannot handle this matter alone, but with the help of other concerned groups coming in with more supplies, the fight against the Ebola Virus Disease is achievable.He commended the organization for its timely support and hoped that others will engage in similar activities to eradicate the disease from the community and Liberia.“This will help all of us to ensure that this deadly disease is contained. Community’s dwellers and partners need to work together until Liberia is announced Ebola free,” Mr. Harris stressed.PHIL has made available some anti-Ebola preventive items to groups and community dwellers in Montserrado, Margibi, and Gbapolu Counties.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
