U.S. and Taliban reach agreement that could precede peace deal

The United States and the Taliban in Afghanistan have reached a truce, the US State Department announced Friday.


The truce, which will be a major foreign policy win for Trump if kept to, was brokered between the US, the Afghan Government and the Taliban and starts with a seven-day reduction in violence in Afghanistan.


The seven day violence reduction will begin Friday night local time, the US State Department announced.

“After decades of conflict, we have come to an understanding with the Taliban on a significant reduction in violence across Afghanistan. This is an important step on a long road to peace, and I call on all Afghans to seize this opportunity,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted Friday morning.


 U.S. and Taliban reach agreement that could precede peace deal


If reduction in violence is successful,the US-Taliban agreement will be signed by February 29, and then the US will have to reduce the current level of troops from 13,000 to 8,600.


In a statement Friday, the Taliban said it plans to sign the agreement with the US. Before the agreement is signed, both sides will work on creating a “suitable security situation” which will include arranging for a prisoner release that could pave the way for a “withdrawal of all foreign forces,” the Taliban said in a statement.


 U.S. and Taliban reach agreement that could precede peace deal


US Defense Secretary Mark Esper announced last week that the US and the Taliban had reached the proposal to decrease violence, as Trump has made it a major foreign policy of his campaign promise to bring US soldiers back home.


The truce announcement this week comes after President Ashraf Ghani of Afghanistan was announced as the official winner of the country’s presidential elections after results were delayed for nearly five months.


The war in Afghanistan, which started in 2001, is the longest war in US history and started with the aim of reducing the ability of terrorists from using Afghanistan as a terror haven to launch attacks against the US.


Ticket goes for $10,000 as Wilder, Fury battle in Las Vegas

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will face each other again almost 15 months on from a controversial draw that left punters desperate for a re-run of their thrilling affair in Los Angeles.

Tickets in Las Vegas are exchanging hands for thousands of dollars, the fighters are volleying spiteful words at one another with gusto and pundits who have frequented Sin City more times than they care to remember have labelled the occasion a “monster”.

Somewhere amid the chaos is the prize of Wilder’s WBC world title. If Fury wins it, all four heavyweight belts will be shared between two British fighters – him and Anthony Joshua, who holds the IBF, WBA and WBO titles.

Wilder starts as favourite (just) before the fighters walk to the ring at around 05:00 GMT tomorrow morning.A handful of tickets remain for the fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, with prices ranging from $425 (£330) on the open market to $10,000 (£7,754) on resale.

On the Las Vegas Strip, fans can pay $100 (£77) to watch on a big screen while the fight will cost $74.99 (£58) to buy at home in the US, meaning $150m (£116m) could be raised before even accounting for ticket revenue. In terms of earnings, it will be an eight-figure night for both men.

It is the biggest heavyweight bout in 20, 30, or – if you listen to Fury – close to 50 years. And the hype is not lost on this city of bright lights and razzmatazz. Fight billboards run the length of the famous Strip; on the ground of the MGM Grand itself, three boxing rings act as stages for US TV networks.

“I have been coming here 25 years and I have never seen this kind of investment into the building of hype of a pay-per-view fight,” said BBC Sport boxing correspondent Mike Costello.His 5 Live Boxing sidekick Steve Bunce added: “Two unbeaten men, elite versus elite. Let’s not lose the fact we are seeing something we don’t often see. This is a monster.



Arsenal’s Saka can still play for Nigeria, says Adegoke

Former Super Eagles left-back Mutiu Adegoke hopes that Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka can still represent Nigeria in the future.There have been clarion calls by some Nigerian fans for Saka to be capped for the Nigerian national team as the England U-19 international could be included in the England’s squad for their international matches same month.

Saka, whose father is from the Yoruba has become arguably Arsenal’s most impressive player of late with nine assists and three goals in all competitions for the Gunners has been tipped to represent England as he declared that no formal channel of communication has been established with the Nigeria Football Federation.

“I think the German knows what he is doing. I believe the young lad would have his time definitely,” Adegoke who had three caps for Nigeria told yesterday.

“My take on that, Bukayo has to decide which country he wants to play for; England or Nigeria.“And again most players that have advantage of playing in England from tender age, would be dreaming of playing for England because we all know there’s no pension for former national team players in Nigeria. They get the advantage with England national team,” Adegoke, a former Shooting Stars and Dolphins FC defender stated.

Speaking further, Adegoke said that Saka could play at the left back position and in left wing role saying: “It is good to be versatile. It won’t be a bad situation. I was once playing as a midfielder before playing as left-back. We do need his versatility and goal threat for Nigeria. This boy is good. He will offer competition to our current players in his positions,” Adegoke stated.

2. Learn the business: In Nigeria, people used to think that the only people who learn a trade are illiterates. Come to think of it, this so-called illiterates men or women do very well when they eventually set up their own business, do you know why? Because they know the nitty-gritty of the business.

Learning a trade gives you a better idea about the business, it opens you up to many opportunities like knowing where to buy the best goods at a cheap rate and so on.


3. Look for a location: After you are done learning the business or trade, the next thing is to look for a suitable location for the business.

Location is a very important factor in setting up a business. You have to set up your business where your target market is.

For instance, if you want to set up a building material business, go to a place that is still developing. That is a place where people are buying lands and building houses.


4. Introduce your business: When you have found a good location, and paid for a shop, meet the people around that area and introduce your business to them. You will be surprised at the turn of events.

Muhammad Ali has a record of 10 consecutive defences of the heavyweight title, same as Wilder..

“It will be an amazing feeling, my 11th consecutive defence,” said Wilder. on Wednesday.
to the 5 Live Boxing with Costello & Bunce podcast.
He added: “It was a basic plan for me to get into boxing, become a journeyman and make a few dollars for my daughter.

“I never thought about being heavyweight champion of the world and being tied with my idol Ali.

Wilder then went on to claim his fight with Fury is bigger than Mayweather vs Pacquiao’s fight.

Porto and Malian striker Moussa Marega opens up on the vile racist abuse he suffered from Vitoria SC fans

Malian striker, Moussa Marega has opened up on the vile racist abuse he suffered during Porto’s clash with Vitoria on Sunday.


When the 28-year-old striker scored in the 60th minute, he celebrated his goal by pointing to the colour of the skin on his forearm, which prompted monkey noises and chairs to be thrown from the stands by Vitoria SC fans.


Marega even celebrated with one of the discarded plastic seats but then made his way to the side of the pitch, with his thumbs down and seemingly booing the home supporters.

Marega was shown a yellow card for the reaction, but after the abuse continued he attempted to angrily leave the pitch and was restrained by his teammates and opposition players, including Porto coach Sergio Conceica.


The Malian international was later substituted in the 72nd minute and replaced with Wilson Manafa.

Speaking about the incident in an interview with RMC Sport, he said: ‘I felt like total s—. It was a massive humiliation, and it really hurt.

‘It started from the beginning, at the warm-up. It was a couple of people. However, when you see and hear two or three shouting monkey stuff or racist insults, I guess that happens to many players on the football field.

‘I could not care less if it is only two or three, but the entire stadium? It is not even possible to keep playing when people are mocking the colour of your skin. It is impossible.’
