Man Utd injury woes deepen as Lingard limps out of AZ clash

first_imgManchester United have suffered a further injury blow as Jesse Lingard limped out of their goalless Europa League draw against AZ.The 26-year-old was only introduced as a 77th-minute substitute but hobbled from the field in stoppage-time with what looked to be a hamstring injury.Though the severity of the injury has yet to be confirmed, Lingard is likely to be a doubt for Sunday’s Premier League clash against Newcastle at St James’ Park.

Are Chelsea this season’s Ajax? Super-subs Batshuayi & Pulisic show Blues can dare to dream Time for another transfer? Giroud’s Chelsea spell set to end like his Arsenal career The injury completes a disappointing day for Lingard, who was left out of the England squad for Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Bulgaria later this month.Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate said a lack of goal involvements and regular football were the reasons behind Lingard’s omission. The 26-year-old is without a goal or an assist in the Premier League in 2019.It is also a further blow to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is already without a number of first-team players due to injury.France manager Didier Deschamps revealed earlier on Thursday that midfielder Paul Pogba is likely to be out of action for around three weeks after suffering a reoccurrence of an ankle injury.The 26-year-old only returned to action against Rochdale in the Carabao Cup last week after spending nearly a month on the sidelines.  Anthony Martial is still out with a thigh injury suffered during the defeat to Crystal Palace on August 24 while Eric Bailly is a long-term absentee.Luke Shaw and Ashley Young also missed Thursday’s clash with AZ with knocks, meaning Solskjaer handed a full debut to 18-year-old left-back Brandon Williams.Though the draw maintained United’s unbeaten start in Group L, they were far from their best in what was a turgid encounter in the Netherlands.The Red Devils failed to register a shot on target during the game, the first time they have failed to do so in the Europa League.The stalemate also means United are without an away victory in 10 matches in all competitions stretching back to that memorable Champions League triumph over Paris Saint-Germain in March, their worst run on the road since 1989.last_img read more

In week 5 of tsunami disaster UN help ranges from topography to

Beyond the immediate UN relief work of providing shelter, food and urgent medical and preventive care, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has prepared the Tsunami Atlas using satellite images collected from FAO data bases and completed by major spatial data sources on the web to assist in rebuilding lives and livelihoods.”The atlas shows the tsunami-affected areas before and after the disaster, thus helping experts in evaluating the damage and estimating reconstruction and rehabilitation needs especially in the agricultural lands, the mangroves areas, as well in the coastal infrastructure that is used by farmers and fishermen,” FAO remote sensing expert Dominique Lantieri said.The atlas is well advanced for Indonesia and Sri Lanka, the areas hardest hit by the 26 December tsunami, which killed at least 165,000 people, injured half a million others, left up to 5 million more in need of basic services and caused incalculable damage. FAO is also working intensively regarding others among the dozen affected countries.Meanwhile, the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) has urged the Government of Thailand and its non-government partners to be extra vigilant in promoting HIV/AIDS prevention as it rebuilds its tsunami-stricken coastline.The main risk factors centre on an immediate lack of prevention resources such as condoms and education materials. Increased vulnerability is mainly due to people seeking unhealthy livelihood alternatives because their principal means of income generation has been destroyed.”Not just lives have been lost due to the tsunami, but livelihoods as well, most notably in fishing and tourism,” UNAIDS Country Coordinator Patrick Brenny said. “For this reason there is a critical need for prevention programmes and sexual health information among this population, not to mention getting people back to work and restoring their livelihoods.”For its part, the World Health Organization (WHO) notes that persons affected by a catastrophe like the tsunami are exposed to extreme stressors, such as personal danger and loss of kin, which represent risks of mental health problems. Most of the affected people live in resource-poor countries and this makes the task of providing assistance more difficult, it warns. read more
