first_imgChina will drastically cut its international flight routes and bar entry to returning foreigners based in the country to stem the spread of the coronavirus, authorities said Thursday. The country has not reported any new domestic COVID-19 infections for two consecutive days but officials have raised concerns about the number of imported cases, which have now surpassed 500.Foreigners living in China with valid visas and resident permits will be blocked from returning to the country after midnight Saturday, the foreign ministry said in a statement.  “The suspension is a temporary measure that China is compelled to take in light of the outbreak situation,” it added.The most of the 500 imported infections involved Chinese nationals returning home, according to the foreign affairs ministry.Diplomats and the crew of international airlines and vessels will still be permitted into the country, according to the statement.Flights out of China will be capped at just one route a week to each country, with international airlines also permitted only one route. The Civil Aviation Administration of China also said the passenger load on flights in and out of China should not exceed 75 percent.The adjusted flight routes are expected to start running from March 29, it added.All Beijing-bound international flights have been diverted to other urban centres.Many Chinese cities including Beijing and Shanghai have already imposed a compulsory 14-day quarantine for all arrivals from abroad. There were nearly 1,100 return international passenger flights scheduled to come to China this week.Topics :last_img read more

first_imgLast season’s top scorer, Godwin Obaje made it to the list for the VAT Wonder Goal Award and will be contending with Akwa United’s Friday Ubong and Wilfred Ammeh of Niger Tornadoes in the latest shortlist announced by the League Management Company (LMC) thursday.The three nominees made the final cut in a match day that recorded 23 goals and with seven other goals considered good enough for listing. Obaje switched to FC IfeanyiUbah from Wikki Tourists after emerging the highest scorer last season and have so far netted nine times this term but it was his second effort against Kano Pillars that has earned him a chance to contest for the best goal of the week honour.Showing huge predatory instincts, Obaje amidst tight marking from four defenders inside the box calmed his nerves to link up a cross from the left side and without controlling the ball, leaned to his left, then shot to the roof of the net with his right. It was a delightful ending to a move that was initiated from the half line involving just two players before Obaje dropped the ball in the net.On a day Niger Tornadoes doused the fire from MFM, Ammeh made good a miscuing by a team made. A right footed player, Ammeh showed versatility of both legs when he deftly controlled the mis-kicked pass, pushed twice to displace two markers and position well for a right footed blaze that hit the upper inner part of the net. It was simply a goal no goalkeeper could do anything apart and this was without prejudice for the maze of legs inside the goal area.Ubong’s goal is similar to the two other shortlisted goals only to the extent that it shook the top end of the net. But his was a sheer effort in bravery and big heart. A stubborn ABS backline had on two occasions repelled moves by Akwa United through the left side and on the third time, the ball fell to Ubong who caressed with his left foot to release a rocket that sailed upwards into the net from 30 meters. The crowd rose in appreciation and his team mates piled atop him on the grass in celebration.Video of the three goals have been uploaded on the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) website, www.npfl.ng and social media platform @LMCNPFL on twitter.Voting which started yesterday will end at 12noon on Sunday, June 4. The winner will receive N150, 000 half of which he is expected to contribute to a charity of his choice within the city where the club is based.The VAT Wonder Goal Award is supported by the Federal Inland Revenue Services (FIRS) which is collaborated with the LMC to use matches of the NPFL to create awareness for the importance of regular tax payment by citizens.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Alexandre Lacazette’s superb strike put Arsenal on course for victory against Everton© AFP Adrian DENNISLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 23 – Alexandre Lacazette fired Arsenal to a fourth successive Premier League win as the French forward’s superb strike inspired a hard-fought 2-0 success against Everton on Sunday.Unai Emery’s side rode their luck in the first half at the Emirates Stadium as Everton wasted a host of chances to punish a sloppy opening from the Gunners. But Lacazette ensured that lethargic spell wouldn’t prove costly when he smashed a sublime opener in the second half.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang doubled Arsenal’s lead moments later when the Gabon forward was allowed to slot home despite being clearly offside.That controversial effort shattered Everton’s resolve as Arsenal celebrated a flattering victory that lifted them to sixth place in the Premier League.The north Londoners have now won their last five games in all competitions, yet, not for the first time, this was a far from convincing display.A first clean sheet of the Emery era was a welcome sight for the Arsenal manager, but he will know there is still plenty of room for improvement in all areas.Everton, without a win in their last 25 visits to Arsenal, could consider themselves unlucky, but their first half profligacy proved decisive.Marco Silva’s team have lost their last two matches and have won only one of their six league games this season.After a laboured start from Arsenal, they finally pieced together an incisive raid when Hector Bellerin’s cross found Aubameyang at the far post.Aubameyang scuffed the ball back to Nacho Monreal and the Arsenal defender saw his strike pushed away by Everton keeper Jordan Pickford.If that move show-cased the best of the attack-minded Bellerin, Everton’s next chance underlined the Spaniard’s defensive frailties.A long pass into Richarlison should have been easy for Bellerin to subdue, but he allowed the Brazilian forward to turn away from him far too easily, and it took a good save from Petr Cech to spare his team-mate’s blushes.Richarlison, back after serving a three-match ban, was a constant menace to the ponderous Arsenal defence and he went close again with a low curling effort from the edge of the area.There were plenty of empty seats around the Emirates and, with Arsenal struggling to find any rhythm, those who had shown up were growing restless by the time Lucas Digne’s free-kick was tipped over by Cech.– Majestic –Theo Walcott scored 56 times at the Emirates during his 12 years with Arsenal and the Everton winger, making his second return to his old club, almost added to that total just before half-time.Sprinting onto Gylfi Sigurdsson’s pass, Walcott had a clear sight of goal but shot straight at Cech in a familiar sight to Arsenal fans who endured the winger’s erratic displays for so long.Arsenal lost Greek defender Sokratis to injury, leaving the Gunners even more vulnerable to Richarlison, who immediately seized on Sigurdsson’s pass and unleashed a powerful drive that forced Cech to save.But, having escaped without punishment for their tepid first half, Arsenal seized the lead in the 56th minute.Lucas Torreira stole possession in midfield and quickly recycled the ball to Aaron Ramsey, whose pass found Lacazette in space on the left side of the area.Lacazette had been anonymous until that point but, taking a touch to size up his options, the French forward guided a majestic curling shot into the top corner for his second goal of the season.If that was tough on Everton, there was worse to come for Marco Silva’s side three minutes later as Arsenal scored a dubious second to seal the points.Mesut Ozil surged away down the right flank and when the Arsenal midfielder’s pass reached Ramsey, he flicked the ball to the offside Aubameyang.The linesman’s flag stayed down and Aubameyang did the rest, planting a cool finish past Pickford for his fourth goal of the season.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
