$1.4m spent on winning bonuses despite one win for Black Stars at AFCON 2019

first_imgA total of  $1,489,432 was spent on winning bonuses for both players and technical staff in the Black Stars’ short-lived 2019 African Cup of Nations campaign‬ in Egypt.This is despite the Black Stars winning only one game at the tournament.The Black Stars, however, finished top of their group which also included Benin, Cameroon and Guinea Bissau.A breakdown of the amount shows that the players – 23 of them – were given a total of $965, 405, working out to $41,974 for each player.The technical team, made up of the coach and his assistants were given $347,027 in winning bonuses.A group labelled as “additional technical staff” were also paid $177,000 in winning bonuses.This was revealed when the Sports Minister, Isaac Asiamah, appeared before Parliament to answer questions on the 2019 AFCON budget and the performance of the Black Stars at the tournament.Sports Minister, Isaac AsiamahHe revealed that an amount of $6,365,033.84 was budgeted for the Black Stars, out of which $4, 564, 352.00 was spent from the team’s training tour to their Round of 16 exit.This also included expenses of $1,143,519 on accommodation and $41,750 on match tickets.A number of issues were raised about the budget for the senior national team’s accounts for the continental showpiece with a number of figures, including as much as $15m, being mentioned.Mr. Asiamah provided some clarity on exactly how much was allocated to the team and how much was spent at the tournament, with the Black Stars crashing out earlier than many had expected but it’s unlikely that too many people will be pleased.Speculation had been rife since the end of the AFCON, which was eventually won by Algeria, that a number of fans and journalists were flown to Egypt by the government.Citi Sports also understands that despite the Black Stars’ early return, a number of those supporters and journalists were forced to remain in Cairo as their return tickets were only viable after the tournament ended. Ghana’s total expenses at the AFCON 2019Airfare – $924,168Per diem, players – $187,050Per diem, technical staff – $129, 600Per diem, additional technical staff – $90,750Winning bonus, players – $965, 405Winning bonus, technical – $347,027Winning bonus, additional technical staff – $177,000Accommodation – $1,143,519Feeding – $419,300Match Tickets  $41,750Medicals – $44,574Visa Fees – $8,541Internal Transportation -$43,092Incidentals – $42,576The Black Stars finished top of their group at the AFCON drawing their first two games against Benin and Cameroon before a 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau set up a Round of 16 tie against Tunisia.Embed from Getty ImagesAfter a 1-1 draw in regulation time, the game remained tied after extra-time and went on to penalties, where Tunisia prevailed.last_img read more

Short-handed Lakers go small, blitzing Mavericks for 7th straight win

And James, who also passed Michael Jordan for fourth on the all-time field goals list, was the engine.“It started with that guy over there,” said guard Danny Green, nodding toward James in the corner of the cramped visiting locker room. “Even though he was sick, he set the tone early, pushing the pace, putting pressure on the rim, he set some good screens, got some stops.”James delivered the final haymakers, extending the Lakers’ lead over the Mavericks in the fourth quarter, helping compensate for Davis’ absence (bruised backside) and foul trouble for Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee.The closest the Mavericks got in the second half was 10, at which point the Lakers deployed an unusual lineup of Green, Kyle Kuzma, Rajon Rondo, Alex Caruso and Jared Dudley. Playing small, the Lakers managed to extend their lead to 13 into the final quarter, at which point James (who has been dealing with flu-like symptoms) swept up the remainder.For the last 18 minutes of the game, Coach Frank Vogel didn’t play any of his regular rotation centers – only two-way contract player Kostas Antetokounmpo checked in with two minutes left in the game, the result already decided.

But even without it, playing small-ball units as triage for their sudden lack of frontcourt depth, the visiting Lakers (31-7) swept the floor with the Dallas Mavericks 129-114 on Friday night in a touted showdown at American Airlines Arena.LeBron James was enough, blitzing Dallas’ vulnerable paint defense from the start for a brutally efficient 35 points, 16 rebounds and seven assists. With 47 points in the first quarter and 79 points by halftime – both season-best marks – the Lakers didn’t look like they needed Davis, at least on offense. 😊 @KingJames giving a fan a memory for life! #PhantomCam 📺: ESPN pic.twitter.com/LRpF9l3C3z— NBA (@NBA) January 11, 2020 Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs The Lakers somehow managed to pull off all of this without Davis, while facing a Mavericks team that’s still the top-rated offense in the NBA. Luka Doncic, a chief rival of James among early MVP candidates, looked reasonably mortal for a second straight game: the 20-year-old phenom had 25 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, but also six turnovers. The Lakers hassled Doncic early, led by the pressure of Avery Bradley (also playing through illness), and he missed his first six shots of the game.The Mavericks took their frustration out on their attire. After a missed free throw in the second quarter, Doncic tore the collar off his jersey, splitting it across his chest. After being ejected in the fourth quarter, Dallas coach Rick Carlisle removed his jacket (but left it otherwise intact) as he waved his hand dismissively while heading to the locker room.“I’m 20 years old, I’ve got a lot of things that I can do better,” Doncic said.Dallas shot just 40.6 percent, including an 11-for-38 mark on 3-point attempts. Missing Kristaps Porzingis, the Mavericks got supporting performances from Tim Hardaway Jr. (22 points) and Seth Curry (16 points).The Lakers next play in Oklahoma City on Saturday night. Vogel said he did not yet know if Davis would be able to play. With another effort like this from his teammates, he might be able to rest another day.“We’ve got a great team,” Howard said. “We’ve got guys who can come in and do just about anything, and we trust each other. And we just want to continue to keep it going.”Frank Vogel chats post-game with @RealAClifton about the 45-point first quarter setting the tone for the #Lakers. pic.twitter.com/CzKjYhQCUP— Spectrum SportsNet (@SpectrumSN) January 11, 2020center_img Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions “Just competitive spirit,” Vogel said. “That’s a challenge when you got a guy like Luka Doncic out there, not having any length at the basket.”The Lakers won their seventh consecutive game and improved to 3-1 against Dallas this season.Making just his second start of the season, Kuzma helped fill Davis’ shoes with a hot first half when he scored 21 of his 26 points. Entrusted with big minutes, the third-year forward seemed to find a rhythm early and attacked with the confidence that the coaching staff hoped might become more frequent this season.“For me, I’m a rhythm player,” he said. “When my minutes are high, I kind of produce. I’m just trying to be myself.”Related Articles “I don’t think people understand how deep we are.

Liberian Christians Hold ‘Night to Honor Israel’

first_img– Advertisement – One of the speakers at the Liberia Night to Honor Israel, Rev. Dr. Francis Tabla, Pastor, Ebenezer Community Church &African Outreach Coordinator, African/Christians United for Israel For their unflinching support to the Republic of Liberia and for being the birthplace of the Christian faith, the Body of Christ in Liberia will on Sunday, March 24, 2019 gather to celebrate Israel in a “Night of Honor.”The event, which is set to take place at the Greater Refuge Cathedral in Oldest Congo Town, will bring together about five thousand people to honor Israel for the different forms of assistance to Liberia in the past, including the fight against Ebola.The Israeli Ambassador accredited to Liberia, including prominent leaders of Liberia, have been invited to the “Night of Honor”.Israel and Liberia’s relations date as far back as the 1950s when Israeli Foreign Minister Golda Meir in 1958 established a relationship with Liberia during her tour of Africa between 1956 and 1966.Liberia’s casting of the largest tie-breaking vote at the United Nations General Assembly in favor of Israel that created the modern Jewish state of Israel in May 1948 was one of the major assistance that bonded the two nations.Some of Liberia’s past presidents, as well as President George Manneh Weah, have seen the need to continue to foster the bilateral relationships between both countries.In 1983, former President Samuel K. Doe’s meeting with then Prime Minister Menachem Begin of Israel was captured in The New York Times. The article quoted President Doe speaking to reporters: “We in Liberia shall do our best in persuading some of our friends, African countries, to reconsider their decision and to resume relations with the state of Israel,” Doe said.In response to President Doe, Minister Begin said: “We do hope that other African countries will follow in your footsteps.” He added that he and General Doe discussed possible cooperation projects “and we hope for concrete results.”President Weah recently paid an official visit to Israel with a key focus on the creation of investment opportunities in agriculture, healthcare, security and energy sectors by Israeli financiers. Israel has invested proven innovations and industries in these very areas.On April 30, 2018, Israel’s celebrated its 70th Anniversary as a nation. A special event to observe the milestone was held in Liberia under the auspices of the Israeli diplomatic mission accredited near Monrovia. Speaking on behalf of the Government of Liberia Deputy Foreign Minister Elias Shoniyin recalled a number of profitable benefits between the two countries which include: scholarships, security training and infrastructural and agricultural projects Israel has given to Liberia.The upcoming Liberia Night to Honor Israel is organized by the African Christians United for Israel (CUFI)-Liberia, in collaboration with the African Christians United for Israel and CUFI-USA. Speakers at the event include: Rev. Dr. Francis O. S. Tabla, African Outreach Coordinator, CUFI-USA; Rev. Dumisani Washington, National Diversity Outreach Director, CUFI-USA; Bishop Nathaniel Zarway, Greater Refuge Cathedral, Host Pastor; Licentiate Zelda Russell, Assistant Director/Tour Leader, African Christians United for Israel-USA and Apostle Samuel M. Kollie, Executive Director, African Christians United for Israel-Liberia. Other members of the delegation from the USA include Rev. Stephen Cole, Rev. John B. Saah, and Rev. George Wonlon.The program begins at 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 24.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
