Infantino concerned by delays to FIFA World Cup qualifying

first_imgFIFA President, Gianni Infantino, has admitted he is concerned by delays to qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar due to the coronavirus pandemic. It was announced earlier this month that the Confederation of North, Central American, and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) qualifiers will not be held in October and November as planned. Thirty national teams were due to compete in the first round, each playing four matches, but this has now been pushed back until March 2021. The Asian Football Confederation has also postponed World Cup qualifiers planned for October and November. Asian qualification for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar is currently midway through the second round group stage, with 40 countries still involved. Teams have three or four matches left to play, with the eight group winners due to book their place in the third and final round of qualification, alongside the four best runners-up. Qualifiers in March and June had already been delayed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Speaking after the virtual FIFA Congress today, Infantino acknowledged the delays were a concern for football’s governing body. Infantino suggested additional international windows would potentially need to be created, along withholding more than two matches during the windows, to ensure qualification can be completed on time. The FIFA President hinted qualifiers could be held in one venue, rather than home and away contests if required. “I am concerned,” Infantino said. “This is a real problem, especially if the pandemic does not get weaker and we cannot play in a normal way. “European national teams have resumed their competitions, CONMEBOL will resume in October. “We are in the hands of health authorities and we cannot impose things. “We have foreseen a new international window in January 2022 and qualifiers will conclude in June, rather than as initially planned in March. “Maybe we are a little lucky the World Cup is in November and December in 2022, as this gives us a little bit more time. “Obviously the World Cup is the most important competition in the world and is the top priority. “We have to work to ensure the qualifiers can be held.” The FIFA Club World Cup is due to be contested in Qatar for the second successive time, as the Gulf nation prepares to host the FIFA World Cup. Infantino said this year’s tournament is unlikely to be held in December, due to the delay caused by the pandemic to continental club competitions. Only UEFA’s Champions League has concluded, with Bayern Munich qualifying for the event in Qatar after winning the tournament. “It is unlikely that this event will take place in December of this year as was originally planned,” Infantino said. “But we are discussing, we are monitoring, we are seeing if it can be hosted in Qatar maybe at the beginning of the year instead of the end of this year. “We certainly want to see if we can keep it, but we will do that consulting all the confederations and all the participating clubs and then take the best decision for football.” FIFA was forced to rescheduled its expanded 24-team FIFA Club World Cup from 2021 earlier this year to accommodate the postponed Copa America and Euro 2020 tournaments. Infantino has mooted the prospect of launching a Women’s Club World Cup and, again, suggested the Women’s World Cup could be held every two years rather than continuing to be staged on a quadrennial basis.

Many of us are personally impacted by cancer and are all too familiar with the devastation it causes. Thankfully, the American Cancer Society is reporting a steady decline in the cancer death rate. By educating ourselves about cancer prevention, screening, and early detection, more lives can be saved.To help kick off National Cancer Prevention Month in February, Both Representatives Randy Frye and Randy Lyness along with many others participated in the Suits and Sneakers Challenge at the Statehouse and paired their favorite tennis shoes with their suits during the legislative session. This year, the nationwide initiative centers on childhood cancer research, services, and awareness.  The American Cancer Society provides many ways to get involved in the fight against cancer. Whether it’s volunteering, making a donation or participating in a fundraising event, there are ways we can all help.

Trump Tweet: 75-year old protester shoved to the ground an “Antifa provocateur?”

first_imgToday President Trump called this poor old man “ANTIFA” and defended the cops viciously attacking him. He’s 75 years old for god’s sake! pic.twitter.com/hle5ktmTp8— Black Lives Matter (@HKrassenstein) June 9, 2020 Trump tweeted Gugino “could be an Antifa provocateur” claiming he appeared “to scan police communications in order to monitor, track or black out the equipment” – adding “I watched, he fell harder than was pushed. Was aiming scanner. Could be a set-up?” President Trump reportedly siting information from this conservative sourced article.(Via Daily Mail) – Two Buffalo cops have been arrested and charged with second degree assault after they shoved a 75-year-old peace activist to the ground Thursday causing him to crack his head open on the sidewalk, as hundreds of colleagues gathered outside the city court in solidarity to cheer their release without bail.Aaron Torgalski and Robert McCabe were each charged with one count of assault in the second degree in a court hearing Saturday morning over the shocking incident that left peaceful protester Martin Gugino in a ‘serious condition’ in hospital.The cops were arraigned in a virtual court hearing where they both pleaded not guilty to the charges and the two cops hid from the view of the camera.They each face up to seven years in prison if convicted of the class D felony. They were released without bail and will appear back in court on July 20.Gugino is still in the hospital with a head injury while the officers have been charged with assault and are suspended without pay.However, here is an alleged photo of Mr. Martin Gugino sitting up chatting on his cell phone before being loaded into the ambulance: President Trump has fired off another incendiary tweet this time about the possible Antifa affiliation of a 75-year old protester in Buffalo, who hit his head on the sidewalk after being shoved by police.

Cricket News Rohit Sharma Breaks This 71-Year-Old Record Of Sir Don Bradman

first_imgNew Delhi: Rohit Sharma has already smashed plenty of records in the ongoing series against South Africa. His maiden double ton in the Ranchi Test made him the fifth Indian opener to go past 500 runs in the series. In Vizag, he had become the sixth Indian player to hit a century in both innings of a Test match. As an opener, Rohit has stepped up and silenced his critics in grand style. During the course of his knock of 212, Rohit broke a 71-year-old record set by Sir Don Bradman and it was the highest Test average at home after 10 innings. After 10 innings at home, Bradman had an average of 98.22 in Tests. With 12 innings at home, Rohit now has an average of 99.84 at home. In the Vizag Test, he had equalled Bradman’s average but with his double ton in Ranchi, he has zoomed past the record and he now has a chance to go past 100 in the upcoming Test series against Bangladesh. In his knock of 212, Rohit smashed six sixes and he also created a new six-hitting record in a Test series.Rohit’s tally of 19 sixes in the series has taken him past Shimron Hetmyer’s previous record of 15 against Bangladesh last year. In the Vizag Test, Rohit smashed a combined total of 13 sixes and it was the most by a player in a single Test match. In Ranchi, he notched up his 100 and 200 with a six and when he hit one more six after going past his milestone, Rohit had gone past fifty sixes in Tests. Also Read | You Guys Would Have Written A Lot About Me: Rohit SharmaRohit is the sixth Indian after Virender Sehwag, MS Dhoni, Sachin Tendulkar, Kapil Dev and Sourav Ganguly to hit 50 or more sixes in Tests.
