Iran were headed for a goalless draw against Wales in Al Rayyan on Friday but scored twice deep in stoppage time to seal a last-gasp victory and keep alive their hopes of reaching the World Cup second round for the first time ever. The preparations of Team Melli, a huge source of national pride, have been disrupted by a crisis back home following the death in police custody of a 22-year-old Kurdish-Iranian woman in September. Her death sparked protests that have grown to represent the boldest challenge to the legitimacy of Iran's clerical elite since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. "We talk about the players, their goals. I don't have words to congratulate my players, they were brilliant," coach Carlos Queiroz told a news conference. "We played with amazing, amazing character, which is the profile of our team usually. We always play with a sense of unity, cohesion, always. Today we made it very clear football is a game of different moments." Iran were thrashed 6-2 in their opening … [Read more...] about ‘Amazing’ Iran win mental battle to rescue World Cup campaign

The HCMC People's Court gave Nguyen Vo Quynh Trang, 27, the death sentence for murder, while the father Nguyen Kim Trung Thai, 36, received three years for torture and five years for concealment of crimes, totaling to eight years in jail. The judge panel said that the law does not allow anyone to beat people, especially children. Because Thai’s family did not agree to Thai and Trang getting married and having children, Trang took her anger out on Thai’s daughter, it said. Trang's action was thus particularly dangerous, as it was against children and for "vile motive," it said. The trial against Trang and Thai drew particular attention from the public. The HCMC People's Court arranged 300 chairs to accommodate the public to follow the hearings, but a much bigger crowd, including people traveling from outside the city, meant many had to stand. Police sent extra officers to maintain security and block roads around the court before the trial opened early on Friday morning. Trang … [Read more...] about HCMC woman sentenced to death for deadly abuse of 8-year-old girl
BEIJING -- Frustration simmered in China among residents and business groups navigating stricter COVID-19 control curbs as the country reported on Friday another historic high of daily infections just weeks after hopes were raised of easing measures. The resurgence of COVID cases in China, with 32,695 new local infections recorded for Thursday as numerous cities report outbreaks, has prompted widespread lockdowns and other curbs on movement and business, as well as pushback. The French Chamber of Commerce in China called for authorities to properly implement COVID "optimisation" measures it announced two weeks ago, in a statement widely shared on social media after the French embassy posted it on its Twitter-like Weibo account on Thursday. The 20 measures, which include shortened quarantines and other more targeted steps, had "given hope" to French companies for more bilateral trade and economic exchanges, but "good policies also need to be implemented in a uniform manner and … [Read more...] about China’s tightening COVID-19 curbs fuel pushback

It also added fuel to an ongoing debate about the professional quality of IELTS exams and the widening gap being created between academic scores and real ability to use the language. IELTS is an International English Language Testing System for listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Those who take this test are qualified to submit applications to national and international university programs, with different score requirements depending on the program. For instance, some technology programs can require a score of 5.5, but other departments usually have higher requirements, probably 7.0 onwards. What do these results mean?

Qatar has prepared for the finals since getting the hosting rights in 2010 by spending a reported $200 billion to put on a "gathering for all mankind", as the title of the opening ceremony said, but it was all over for the team in 180 minutes. "This whole team should be changed," a Qatar fan told Reuters outside Al Thumama stadium, without revealing her name. In the tournament's opening match, the 2019 Asian Cup winners did not live up to expectations and conceded twice in the first half to lose 2-0 against Ecuador after a disappointing and shaky performance, with lots of fans leaving before the end. The team may have paid the price for the Qatar FA's decision not to allow national team players to feature for their clubs in the local league this season and to devote themselves solely to preparations for the big event. At times, fatigue and nerves were evident in Qatar's performances, as in the first minutes of the opening match when goalkeeper Saad AlSheeb would have cost … [Read more...] about End of Qatar’s football project or just the start?
