In-form Neymar eyes Pelé’s record as Brazil’s record scorer – New Zimbabwe.com

Spread This News

By Associated Press


Here’s some great news for Brazil: Neymar is winning everyone over this season with his goals and attitude for Paris Saint-Germain.

He’s also been injury-free after years of being plagued by ankle, hamstring and foot injuries.

Even though Neymar suffered a small cut in his right knee and needed minor treatment during Wednesday’s training session, Brazil coach Tite said he was expected to start against Ghana on Friday in a potentially dazzling attack with Raphinha, Vinícius Júnior and Richarlison.

Fans were high-fiving Neymar and having their photos taken with him when he arrived at Wednesday lunchtime in Le Havre for the game against Ghana, the penultimate friendly for both sides before the World Cup in Qatar.

Neymar’s work-rate for PSG has been exemplary. He’s fitter than for many years and scoring prolifically, with 11 in 11 games overall.

The 30-year-old forward has been creating, too.

His pass for Lionel Messi in Sunday’s 1-0 win at Lyon was his seventh in the French league — level with Messi.

Will this form continue all the way to the World Cup in Qatar, where Brazil aims for a record-extending sixth title but a first for 20 years?

Brazil fans hope so.

Even more so if Neymar enters the tournament in Qatar with the additional psychological boost of being Brazil’s all-time leading scorer.

He’s on 74, behind only three-time World Cup winner Pelé’s record of 77.

He has another chance of overtaking Pelé in a friendly against Tunisia next Tuesday at Parc des Princes, also the home of PSG. The last time Brazil played at the stadium was in 1992, when Neymar was six months old.

Neymar is a more mature player than at the last World Cup in 2018, where he drew attention with his histrionics and for constantly rolling around on the ground every time he was fouled, even lightly.

Brazil’s World Cup opponents in Group G are Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon. Neymar will be confident of bolstering his goal tally in those three games as he bids to write his name alongside Pelé’s as a World Cup winner.

Ghana, meanwhile, has a final warmup against Nicaragua in Spain on Tuesday.

Ghana has plenty of goal-scorers to fear at the World Cup in Group H.

Portugal is led by Cristiano Ronaldo, the all-time leading scorer in international soccer with 117; Uruguay features proflic duo Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez; and South Korea has Son Heung-min.

So at least facing Neymar will keep Ghana’s defense sharp and prepare them better for what lies ahead.

Ghana’s all-time leading scorer is Asamoah Gyan with 51, but he’s left a void in attack since he retired from international soccer three years ago.

André Ayew seeks his 24th international goal and younger brother Jordan Ayew, who has been short on club form this season for English Premier League side Crystal Palace, looks for his 20th.

Athletic Bilbao’s Iñaki Williams is after his first for Ghana.

Pop singer Shakira to face trial over tax fraud in Spain – New Zimbabwe.com


Spread This News

By Associated Press


BARCELONA: A Spanish judge on Tuesday approved a trial for Colombian pop singer Shakira on charges of tax fraud.

Spanish prosecutors accused the entertainer in 2018 of failing to pay 14.5 million euros ($13.9 million) in taxes on income earned between 2012 and 2014. Prosecutors are seeking an eight-year prison sentence and a hefty fine if she is found guilty of tax evasion.

Shakira, 45, has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and rejected a deal with authorities to avoid going to trial. Her public relations firm has said that she has already paid all that she owed and an additional 3 million euros ($2.8 million) in interest.

The court based in the town of Esplugues de Llobregat near Barcelona said that Shakira will face six counts of tax fraud. The date for the trial has yet to be set.

The case hinges on where Shakira lived during 2012-14. Prosecutors in Barcelona have alleged the Grammy winner spent more than half of that period in Spain and should have paid taxes in the country, even though her official residence was in the Bahamas.

Shakira, whose full name is Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, has been linked to Spain since she started dating soccer player Gerard Pique. The couple, who have two children, used to live together in Barcelona but recently ended their 11-year relationship.

Spain has cracked down on soccer stars like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo over the past decade for not paying their full due in taxes. They were found guilty of evasion but both avoided prison time thanks to a provision that allows a judge to waive sentences under two years in length for first-time offenders.

It will undoubtedly be the most interesting duel in this Group 2 of League A. The two strongest teams face each other looking to define who will stay with the first place. Portugal have the advantage since after their 4-0 victory against the Czech Republic they reached 10 points, 2 more than the Spanish, so the tie is enough for them to obtain 1st place.

Spain has it a little more complicated.

Chipangano On The Verge Of PSL Return

27 September 2022

Spread the love

Hwange FC are just a game away from sealing their Premier Soccer League promotion after a 3-0 walkover score line over Ajax Hotspurs, who failed to travel to the Colliery Stadium on Saturday.

Chipangano need at least a point in their next game to mark their return to the top-flight.

The coal miners will play Indlovu Iyanyathela at the Colliery this weekend.

The club is sitting on the top of the ZIFA Southern Division One table with 82 points, five ahead of the second placed ZPC Hwange, with two games to play.

Hwange FC, who are coached by former Bulawayo City boss Try Ncube , have lost only two games so far and won 26 in the 32 matches played.

They were relegated three years ago in the previous campaign before the coronavirus pandemic affected the domestic league.

Meanwhile, Simba Bhora booked their place in the top flight after winning the ZIFA Northern Region Division One.

Sheasham and Green Fuel FC were promoted following their title triumphs in the Central and Eastern Region league, respectively.- Soccer24 Zimbabwe
