Garba Lawal Urges Eagles To Focus On Iceland Game

first_imgFormer Super Eagles midfielder Garba Lawal has called on the team to forget the opening game against Croatia and focus on how to bounce back against Iceland on Friday.The Three-time African champions face the World Cup first timers at the Volgograd Arena in Volgograd in the bid to register their first win of the tournament.Garba Lawal was a key member of the last Nigerian team that won the country’s first opening game at the World Cup.He was speaking about the Super Eagles in a chat with Punch. In his words, the former midfielder said: “The Eagles tried their best but it was not enough against a more experienced Croatian side. The match has been played and lost, so we shouldn’t be dwelling much on it.”“Losing against Croatia doesn’t mean that the Eagles are out of the World Cup, it only means that they have to do more to qualify from a group that is tough. What we see in the match is football – you win, lose draw some.“But I will expect the team to begin preparations for the Iceland match because that will be tougher than what we saw against Croatia. The Iceland team is more compact and organised and as such, they will be very difficult to play against.“What they did against Argentina is a pointer to the fact that they are very deadly and dangerous, so the Eagles need to be aware of this. If not that they were unlucky; they would have won the game.“The Eagles need to step up their game and go for the best they can get against Iceland if they want to leave the group. It will be difficult but the Eagles can get the job done if they correct the lapses noticed yesterday.” Garba Lawal concluded.

Observing World Hello Day today

first_imgToday (November 21, 2017) is the occasion of the 45th annual World Hello Day.  The objective of the occasion is to say hello to at least 10 people during the day. The message is for world leaders to use communication rather than force to settle conflicts.For many persons, World Hello Day may sound extremely basic, as it encourages us to take the opportunity to simply greet people, and to recognise how important simple communication is in our daily lives. The story of how it came to be, however, is a long and interesting one.World Hello Day was founded in 1973 by Brian McCormack, a PhD graduate of Arizona State University, and Michael McCormack, a graduate of Harvard University, in response to the Yom Kippur War. The McCormack brothers mailed 1360 letters, in seven languages, to Government leaders worldwide to encourage participation in the first World Hello Day. Since that time, World Hello Day has been observed by people in 180 countries.Any person can participate in World Hello Day simply by greeting 10 people or more. This demonstrates the importance of personal communication for preserving peace, and is supposed to send a message of openness and goodwill to others. The observance began in response to the conflict between Egypt and Israel in the fall of 1973. People around the world use the occasion as an opportunity to express their concern for world peace. Beginning with a simple greeting on World Hello Day, their activities send a message to leaders, encouraging them to use communication rather than force to settle conflicts. In its first year, World Hello Day gained the support of 15 countries. As a global event, World Hello Day joins local participation in a global expression of peace.Thirty-one winners of the Nobel Peace Prize are among the people who have noted World Hello Day’s value as an instrument for preserving peace and as an occasion that makes it possible for anyone in the world to contribute to the process of creating peace. Among other supporters are almost 100 authors, entertainers, and world leaders.The creators of the holiday hoped this small gesture alone would demonstrate how communication can be instrumental in resolving disputes and preventing conflicts.Many take it a step further; they use it as a time to reflect on someone important they have lost touch with, for one reason or another. This may be an important person in their lives they have fallen out with over something that is perhaps not quite worth it. Time tends to be a great healer, so if enough time has passed from the conflict, they would be able to analyse the situation and all of its aspects, seeing their own faults and wrongdoings as well as those of the other party, and maybe it’s time to put the conflict to rest?Many people do not know how good it actually feels to admit that they were in the wrong and say sorry – instead, they see such behaviour as a display of weakness, when it is actually a display of strength and confidence. People also often make the mistake of thinking that the other person will lose respect if they apologise to them, and this too is incorrect. Most people tend to give more respect for being able to admit the wrong, than if you decide to stubbornly hold on to your convictions after being proven incorrect.It may seem a bit daunting at first, but if the person or situation is important enough, it will always be worth the struggle to make the first move and extend a hand in a gesture of peace.Given the existing tensions in our own country Guyana, it would be remiss of the citizens not to see the significance of this day, even if it appears trivial. The message is universal. Why not use this day and those that follow as a catalyst for improving national communication as well?last_img read more
