Real hit five; Arsenal lose, Reds win

Real Madrid began their title
defence with a 5-1 thrashing of
Basle, while city rivals Atletico
slipped to a 3-2 defeat at
Olympiakos in the first group
matches of football’s Champions League on
Tuesday.
Strikers Ciro Immobile and Pierre-Emerick
Aubameyang scored either side of the break for
Germany’s Borussia Dortmund in a 2-0 defeat of
Arsenal.
Mario Balotelli struck his first goal for Liverpool
since joining from AC Milan and Steven Gerrard
converted a last-gasp penalty in a dramatic late
goal flurry in a 2-1 defeat of newcomers
Ludogorets.
Elsewhere, Argentinian striker Carlos Tevez
bagged both goals for Juventus in a 2-0 defeat
of Malmo, while Monaco and Zenit St Petersburg
also began their campaigns with victories.
Galatasaray rescued a point with a late goal in a
1-1 draw with Anderlecht.
An own goal by Marek Suchy in the 14th minute
began a first-half goal rush by Real Madrid
against Swiss champions Basle in Group B.
Gareth Bale ran onto a Luka Modric pass to lift
the ball over Basle keeper Tomas Vaclik on the
half hour and then set up Cristiano Ronaldo for a
third a minute later.
James Rodriguez made it four in the 37th
minute before Derlis Gonzalez pulled one back a
minute later. Real completed the rout with a
Karim Benzema strike 11 minutes from time.
Arthur Masuaku and Ibrahim Afellay put
Olympiakos ahead against Atletico in a Group A
game in Piraeus before last season’s losing
finalists replied through Mario Mandzukic on his
Champions League debut for the Spanish
champions.
Kostas Mitroglou hit a third for the home side in
the 73rd minute, while Antoine Griezmann’s late
goal came was no more than a consolation for
Atletico.
In the same group, Tevez was on target in the
59th minute and notched a second with a last-
minute free-kick for Italian champions Juventus
against Swedish side Malmo.
Benfica’s 51-match unbeaten home record in all
competitions came to an end against visiting
Zenit St Petersburg in Group C.
Brazil striker Hulk put the Russian side ahead
and former home favourite Axel Witsel headed a
second soon after Benfica keeper Artur was sent
off for a foul as last man.
Monaco also got off to a winning start in the
group with a 1-0 defeat of Germany’s Bayer
Leverkusen thanks to a 61st-minute goal by
Joao Moutinho.
Liverpool, back in the Champions League after a
five-year break, toiled against group-stage
debutants Ludogorets before Italy striker
Ballotelli broke the deadlock with eight minutes
remaining in their Group D encounter at Anfield.
Dani Abolo levelled in the final minute for the
Bulgarians but Gerrard then stepped up to score
from the spot after keeper Milan Borjan tripped
Javi Manquillo.
“We did OK but it wasn’t better than OK,”
Gerrard said.
“There’s a lot to learn, we were caused
problems on the counter-attack. You have to
give Mario Balotelli credit, it didn’t go his way
for long periods but the sign of a good
goalscorer is to keep going and get a chance.
What’s more important is his work rate.
“If we win in Basle now it puts us in a good
position but we must do better.”
Fellow Premier League side Arsenal were
outplayed at Dortmund who were rewarded for
their dominance Immobile, a summer signing
from Torino, raced from his own half to finish
just before the break for his first competitive
goal for the Bundesliga side.
Aubamayang then punished a ragged display by
Arsene Wenger’s side with a second shortly
after the interval.
“We wanted a pressing machine on the field and
we did this to near perfection,” Dortmund coach
Juergen Klopp told Sky TV.
Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta said: “We faced a
top side in one of the most difficult stadiums to
play in in Europe. After you go 1-0 down here it
is very difficult. We didn’t perform well enough
tonight.”
The group stage continues Wednesday with eight
matches in Groups E, F, G and H.

Why Should Nigerian Graduates Who Studied Abroad Get Special NYSC Treatment?

Unical Boys Videoed Themselves Abusing a
Girl in an Uncompleted Building
Oh, that’s true! You will soon be doing your
National Youth Service Corps (NYSC)
programme… So where will you love to serve?
And what if you are posted to some place you
do not like?
Oh dear, there is absolutely no way I will be
posted to somewhere I don’t like, have you
forgotten I am an international student? I must
be posted to Abuja or at worst Lagos, except of
course I choose anywhere else.
And then I remembered that’s true. Those
Nigerians who studied abroad are given
preferential treatment when it comes to NYSC
posting. They are mostly posted to the Federal
Capital Territory (Abuja) or allowed to make their
choice.
But why is this so? Why should someone who
left his or her country to school somewhere
else be pampered while the ones who stayed at
home to get their education are not cared
about?
Anything foreign in Nigeria is often regarded as
superior and the home made inferior. What
exactly is the cause of this mentality or pattern
of thought?
It doesn’t matter if it’s Ghana or Benin Republic
or even Haiti, once it’s not Nigeria, it’s
superior.
In my thinking, a Nigerian who stayed at home
to get his or her university education deserves
to be treated better than the one who ran away
to a foreign place to acquire his or her
university education.
But what exactly is the reason for this sort of
preferential treatment? What message are they
trying to pass across? What is the point
exactly?
Does it mean that once you study abroad (even
West African countries are abroad), you are
automatically better?
Most of these people who ran away to study
especially in Europe or America, believe that
Nigeria is not good.

Most of the people who went to the nearby
West African countries, couldnt pass JAMB and
because admission is easier in Ghana and Benin
Republic and their parents could afford to pay
the bills, they left Nigeria to school there. Some
claim it’s the strike action. Whatever the reason
is, they left the country to school.
Now, when they return for the NYSC programme,
we treat them like first class citizens by posting
them to Abuja or allowing them make their
choice. When the reverse should be the case!
The Nigerian graduate who went through the
number of strikes, the tight admission process
and so many other things is now regarded as the
second class citizen.
I do not know what or who brought up this idea
of the preferential treatment given to the
‘international students’. But I am confused, and I
need someone to explain it to me.
Why should Nigerian graduates who studied
abroad be given preferential treatment during
NYSC posting?

Rihanna Is Angry Slams CBS For Yanking Off NFL Performance

With the Ray Rice domestic violence scandal
still fresh and the Ravens set to play the
Steelers, CBS opted not to run a taped musical
segment featuring Rihanna due to her history
with domestic violence in 2009
It only had to take a Ray Rice » and perhabs
Chris Brown » to stop Rihanna » ‘s recorded
NFL performance from airing on CBS last week!
Now the singer is blasting the renown
Television Network for deliberately omitting her
big moment because of her past!
With the Ray Rice domesting violence »
scandal still fresh on the mind and the Ravens
set to play the Steelers , CBS opted not to
run » a taped musical segment featuring
Rihanna … seeing that she was once a victim of
a high-profile domestic violence incident -
thanks to Chris Brown.
Instead, the network chose to air her musical
opening from “Thursday Night Football” last
week, this week (on Thursday), but it became
rather too late!
Rihanna already took to Twiiter yesterday to
blast CBS writing, “CBS you pulled my song last
week, now you wanna slide it back in this
Thursday? NO, F*** you! Y’all are sad for
penalizing me for this.”
Its obvious RiRi is not happy. As for what she
means by “penalizing” … it’s pretty clear she
feels CBS couldn’t not allow her to move on
after been beaten » by Chris Brown 5 years
ago.
She followed that up by writing, “The
audacity …”
