Black Satellites set for France examination in opener at FIFA U20 World Cup

first_imgGhana open their 2013 FIFA U20 World Cup campaign against France at the Istanbul Arena on Friday in Group A.But they face a difficult opposition in a talented France squad.The Black Satellites became the first African side to lift the World U20 trophy in Egypt after beating Brazil on penalties in 2009.Sellas Tetteh, who masterminded that historic feat four years ago, has returned to take charge of the Ghana squad.The West African’s record in the competition far surpasses Friday’s opposition.They have finished in the medal zone of previous tournaments on three occasions. At the 2001 finals in Argentina where Ghana won silver, they drew 0-0 with France in a final Group F match.Ghana’s side featured the likes of Michael Essien, Sulley Muntari, John Pantsil and Fulham’s Derek Boateng.Friday’s match will be entirely different.Though Udinese-target Ebenezer Assifuah is the brightest spot in the Ghana team, Tetteh would be relying most on Inter Milan midfielder Alfred Duncan who helped Livorno secure promotion to the Italian Serie A.Anderlecht’s Frank Acheampong and Baba Abdul Rahman from German side Greuther Furth will be crucial. Left-back Jeremiah Akorful is also a delight to watch on the ball.Juventus striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom is also with the team.Ghana had to drop Chelsea reserve team captain Daniel Pappoe over a swollen knee.Les Bleuets earned their spot at Turkey 2013 by reaching the last four of the 2012 UEFA European U-19 Championship in Estonia.France’s best performance in the competition comes in 2011 in Columbia where they finished fourth after losing to Mexico in the bronze medal game. The European giants, despite their rich pool of talents at youth level have appeared just four times out of 18 possible times.Pierre Mankowski’s side is inspired by the presence of Olympique Lyon’s regular squad member Samuel Umtiti who completed 25 Ligue 1 games last season and Juventus’ Paul Pogba.Striker Jean-Christophe Bahebeck single-handedly took Troyes to the semi-final of the Coupe de France competition last season.The failure of AC Milan’s N’Baye Niang to make the final squad for the France squad sums up the quality of their squad.About 70% of the France squad have played in the French top-flight. Ghana’s probable starting line-up: Eric Ofori Antwi – Baba Rahman, Lawrence Lartey, Joseph Attamah, Richmond Nketiah- Alfred Duncan, Seidu Salifu, Frank Acheampong,Francis Narh – Ebenezer Assifuah, Richmond Boakye-Yiadom.last_img read more

first_imgDonegal’s chief fire officer Joseph McTaggart.Donegal Chief Fire Officer Joseph McTaggart is urging the public to be cautious following a recent nationwide fire safety alert in the UK on the risk of fires caused by exploding e-cigarette chargers. This nationwide fire safety alert in the UK has been issued on foot of a spate of fires which is believed were caused by exploding e-cigarette chargers.It is believed that fires are taking place because some smokers are not using compatible chargers. This means too much current goes into the batteries and they overheat and eventually explode. Battery material shoots out – up to two to three metres in distance and can cause a fire if it lands on anything combustible. Latest reported figures from fire services in the UK show that since 2012 they have attended 113 calls to e-cigarette related incidences. In 2012 there were just 8 calls but this increased to 43 in 2013 and there were at least 62 in 2014.Chief Fire Officer in Donegal Joseph McTaggart warns that the increase in the number of fires relating to e-cigarettes is worrying and it is likely that a similar trend is emerging in Ireland.He is urging members of the public to be extra vigilant and advises e-cigarette users to follow these safety tips when charging:• Always use the correct charger and follow the manufacturer’s instructions• Never charge a battery that has signs of damage, that has been dropped, or has been subjected to impact• Never plug a charger into a non-approved mains power transformer• Check that your e-cigarette battery has overcharge or over heat protection• Remove the battery from charge when complete – don’t overcharge• Never leave a battery on charge unattended• Don’t use if wet or exposed to water• Do not over tighten the atomiser when connecting to charger• Ensure that you dispose of batteries correctly.
