first_imgSOCCER chiefs are investigating a stomach-churning racist attack on an African-born boy during a teenage soccer match in Donegal.The Schoolboy Football Association of Ireland said today it is investigating an allegation of racial abuse towards a 14-year-old African-born player during a cup game at the weekend.Monkey chants were shouted from a small section of the crowd at an U15s game on Saturday. The referee ordered teenage players off the pitch due to the chants as the teenager was left in tears.Schools FAI general secretary Martin O’Hanlon confirmed that the association is investigating the sickening incident.“We take something like this very seriously, but short of making an assessment, I can’t say anything. We have an allegation of racist taunting,” he said.The organisation is awaiting the referee’s report on the incident. “We have spoken to football people, not the boy, people have rang us about it,” said Mr O’Hanlon. The teenager’s coach has said there were very clear monkey chants coming from one section of the crowd “every time he touched the ball”. The referee warned the crowd that he would abandon play, but he then re-started the game. OUTRAGE AT SICKENING RACIST ‘MONKEY’ CHANTS AIMED AT TEENAGE FOOTBALLER was last modified: March 5th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:FAIinvestigationracist abuseSFAIlast_img read more

India blank Hong Kong 7-0 on a bumpy field

first_imgIndia began their campaign in the men’s hockey competition in style by defeating a hapless Hong Kong 7-0 at the Aoti sports complex here on Monday.On a muggy afternoon where the number of Hong Kong China supporters outnumbered the Indians, Jose Brasa’s boys, playing their first match in a long time, were on cruise mode.On the face of it, even though this sporting complex looks superb, the hockey pitch did seem a bit bouncy. The situation was similar to that at the National Stadium in New Delhi, where trapping the ball during the World Cup was not easy.There was nothing spectacular about the game really, with India leading from the start and taking a 4-0 lead at half time.This was the seventh meeting between India and Hong Kong in the Asian Games and in the previous clash at Busan in 2002, India had won 5-1.”We were trying to regain our rhythm and test our speed on this uneven turf,” defender Dhanajay Mahadik told the media after the match. The defender admitted that he was not exactly happy with the match. “We did not get to chase the counters and we were trying to snatch the ball, but it was hard to come by on this track.”India took a 2-0 lead by the fourth minute. First, it was Bharat Chikara who scored off a Danish Mujtaba pass. Shortly later, Sandeep Singh converted the first penalty corner.In all, India got six penalty corners and converted three. Yet, penalty corner specialist Sandeep was not worried. “Our plan was to try different variations and see how effective the direct attempts would be on this uneven turf,” he said.advertisementIndia took things easy after a good cushion of goals. There was no point going flat out in a match where there was nothing to test them. Had it not been for the Hong Kong team colours, you could have confused them to be a motley mix. They had players of Indian and Pakistani origin.India increased the tally in the 17th minute when they forced their second penalty corner. Again, Sandeep scored. Six minutes later, it was 4-0 for India as Vikram Pillay set up Sarvanjit Singh who made no mistake in firing the ball home.A surprising counter by Hong Kong fetched them two successive penalty corners in the 31st and 32nd minutes. But they failed to make use of it.In the second session, India pumped in two goals in a space of three minutes. In the 36th minute, the Indians were awarded their fourth penalty corner and this time Mahadik’s flick was blocked. On the rebound, Tushar Khandekar flashed in.Three minutes later Shivendra Singh set up Arjun Halappa who scored a beautiful goal and then Sardara’s long shot was intercepted by Rajpal who relayed it to Shivendra and he did the rest for a final score-line of 7-0. After the match, chief coach Brasa said: “It will take some to settle down on this type of a turf, though it will be the same for all the teams.”last_img read more
