USA vs. Nigeria: Final Score 2-1

Published

on

he United States finished off a perfect Send-Off Series with a 2-1 win over Nigeria in front of over 50,000 fans at Everbank Field in Jacksonville on Saturday. The victories followed up wins over Azerbaijan and Turkey, sending the U.S. onto Brazil for the World Cup on a three-match win streak.

Jozy Altidore netted both goals for the U.S., giving the striker the big breakout match he needed after not scoring for club or country since December 4, 2013.

The U.S. started sluggishly, giving Nigeria the ball, but they did well at the back to keep goalkeeper Tim Howard from being tested. After 10 minutes, the U.S. began to find their stride and once they did, they began to dominate the match.

Jurgen Klinsmann’s squad kept the ball and created chances. Even when their finishing — or before that, touch to reel in the final ball — failed them, they were clearly on the front foot. But they finally broke through in the 32nd minute.

A nifty play by Alejandro Bedoya freed the Americans up down the right before the midfielder fired a cross for Fabian Johnson, who got to the ball by the endline and redirected it for Altidore right in front. All Altidore had to do from there was tap the ball in and the U.S. had a 1-0 lead.

The U.S. kept pushing and finished the first half well. They kept the pressure on Nigeria and were the dominant team going into the break.

Little changed at the start of the second half, as the Yanks continued to keep the ball and push for another goal. Even when Nigeria got on the ball, they failed to create chances and Howard was rarely challenged.

In the 68th minute, Altidore got on the board again when he brought down a long ball and found himself one-on-one with a Nigerian defender. He faced goal, got to within 15 yards, cut in and ripped a shot towards the near post. The shot could have been saved by Super Eagles keeper Vincent Enyeama, but it found the back of the net and Altidore had himself a brace.

Once the U.S. got a two-goal lead, Klinsmann brought on Omar Gonzalez and went to three at the back, but the move backfired. Instead of protecting the lead, the defense got shaky, and they conceded a penalty in the 86th minute. Matt Besler committed the foul, but Gonzalez and Cameron were both poor too and Victor Moses converted from the spot.

Still, the U.S. held on for the win, and they now head to Brazil with three straight wins in hand.

United States: Howard; Johnson, Cameron, Besler, Beasley; Bradley, Beckerman, Jones, Dempsey, Bedoya; Altidore.

Goals: Altidore 32′, Altidore 68′.

Nigeria: Enyeama, Oshaniwa, Yobo, Ambrose, Oboabona, Azeez, Mikel, Moses, Onazi, Osaze, Ameobi.

Goals: Moses 86′

    I hope my words don’t come true. Taking Osaze to the world cup will make Nigeria fail. For crying out loud we won the Nations cup without him and saw the best Eagles since USA ’94. France had a similar problem with Nasri and they left him out even when Ribery was ruled out.

In what will come across as a really startling development, a dead man has been made to sit at his own funeral.

According to Trinidad Express, the dead man was embalmed into a sitting position, placed in the tray of a hearse and given an open-air last ride past the Office of the Prime Minister on the way to his funeral.

Dressed in a suit and in a chair, murdered Che Lewis was placed in the back of a pick-up van by Dennie’s Funeral Home and driven around Port of Spain on Wednesday.

Witnesses and social media users were stunned.

TTPS Road Safety Co-ordinator Brent Batson told Express via a What’s App message that the funeral home’s manner of transporting the deceased will be investigated.

Batson said, “The TTPS is disappointed in the reckless behavior engaged in by a funeral home being circulated on social media whereby persons were seen seated in the vehicle tray seemingly as part of a funeral procession. Carrying persons in a dangerous manner is an offence Regulation 38 Rule 17 of the Motor Vehicle Road Traffic Act (MVRTA) with a $1,000 penalty and the TTPS will be continuing investigation into funeral company’s conduct on the road.”

Several videos of the ‘last ride’ were posted on social media, with many commenting that this was “proof that Trinidad is not a real place”, while others said they idea was only novel in Trinidad but was done in other countries.

Lewis, 29, and his father Adlay Lewis, 49, were shot and killed on November 15 at their home at First Trace, Bagatelle Road, Diego Martin.

His funeral was streamed live on social media, but not all the viewers were aware that the man sitting at the entrance to the church was the deceased.

There was also a question as to why he was not wearing a mask.

The funeral home informed that because of the “unique funeral, the church was astonished and refused the entrance of Che”.

Following the funeral service at the St John The Evangelist R.C Church at Church Street, Diego Martin the bodies of father and son were interred the St John The Evangelist Cemetery.

The funeral home also intends introducing a new form of body disposal to Trinidad and Tobago.

It is know as alkaline hydrolysis, a process for the disposal of human and pet remains using lye and heat.
