Latin American Herald Tribune: Late Header from Diop Gives Eibar 2-1 Win over Alaves in La Liga

Late Header from Diop Gives Eibar 2-1 Win over Alaves in La Liga EIBAR, Spain – A stoppage-time header from midfielder Papakouli Diop gave Eibar a late 2-1 win over Alaves in the Basque Country derby on Sunday, earning its first La Liga victory in four games.Video assistant referee gave Alaves an early lead, reversing the decision on the field and awarding a goal for Manu Garcia’s header just three minutes into the match.The quick goal came despite Eibar coach Jose Luis Mendilibar’s decision to line up only one striker and three midfielders, apparently to avoid the defensive errors that had proved costly in recent matches.Surprisingly, Alaves’ starting lineup did not feature goalkeeper Fernando Pacheco Flores, replaced by Marko Dmitrovic of Serbia.VAR stepped in once again in the 22nd minute, when a penalty call by referee Iglesias Villanueva was overturned as it apparently showed that the foul committed by Alaves defender Ruben Duarte was outside the box, but the Spanish player was sent off for preventing a promising attacking chance.Outnumbered, Alaves brought on right back Carlos Vigaray to replace Spanish striker Borja Baston, and managed to keep their 1-0 lead when the first half ended after 50 minutes of play.In the 61st minute, Eibar midfielder Pablo de Blasis was shown a red card for an unnecessary foul in the midfield after the referee consulted with VAR, putting the two teams at 10 men each.Seven minutes later, Eibar equalized on midfielder Joan Jordan’s right-footed shot from outside the box, with an assist from left back Marc Cucurella.Apparently seizing the game’s momentum, Eibar managed to pull off the win in the first minute of stoppage time thanks to Diop’s close-range header.

Latin American Herald Tribune: Trump Digs In for a Long, Cold War with Iran

PRN-Latino News from mikenova (16 sites)
Trump Digs In for a Long, Cold War with Iran WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump has put Iran on notice that the punishing sanctions he plans to impose on Iran are just the opening salvo of an ambitious strategy to compel Tehran to pull back from its assertive posture in the Middle East or risk collapse.The sanctions are due to be implemented on Monday.“Our objective is to force the regime into a clear choice: either abandon its destructive behavior or continue down the path toward economic disaster,” Trump said in a statement Friday night.The guiding assumption behind the administration’s policy is that Iran is economically weak, has little interest in a military confrontation with the United States – and that Washington can force changes in decades-long Iranian behavior that will reconfigure the Middle East, officials and experts say.But senior Iranian officials insist Tehran will neither retrench nor negotiate.Former US officials with long experience say Tehran has cards to play, including trying to ride out the sanctions in the hope that Trump is a one-term president and taking advantage of the continued turmoil in the region to stir up fresh challenges for the US and its allies.“Iran is gaining ground in the region, and I don’t see these sanctions as reversing that,” said Jeffrey Feltman, who was the top State Department official on Middle East issues from 2009 to 2012 and later served as a United Nations undersecretary general for political affairs.An early test of the Trump administration’s “maximum pressure” sanctions campaign will come in Syria.The White House has sought Russian President Vladimir Putin’s help in prodding Iranian forces and the Shiite militias Tehran backs to leave the country – so far, without success.Administration officials are now calculating that draconian economic measures can prompt Iran to declare its military mission accomplished in Syria and bring its forces home.
