– ‘Small dose of destiny’ –The rapture was short-lived however as Meunier again calmly slotted home as Mbappe put the ball on a platter for him deep into injury time.“It was a small dose of destiny,” Meunier said.Meunier has now scored three league goals in his last two appearances, further strengthening his case for inclusion in Wednesday’s Champions League tie at Anderlecht.“We knew it would be tough but we were not expecting to have to fight like that,” France midfielder Adrien Rabiot told French television after the game.“For them it was their game of the season and their mentality and team spirit made us use up a great deal of energy.”Swiss prosecutors revealed this week they are probing PSG chairman Khelaifi, who heads the Qatari-owned beIN Media group, and disgraced former FIFA executive Jerome Valcke over the sale of media rights for World Cups from 2018-2030. FIFA said Friday it was also investigating Khelaifi over the media rights issue.Elsewhere on Saturday, Marcelo Bielsa’s Lille conceded a last-gasp equaliser to draw 2-2 at home with Troyes and remain without a win since the opening weekend of the season.Stephane Darbion stunned the struggling hosts inside three minutes at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy, but close-season signing Luiz Araujo equalised nine minutes later.His fellow Brazilian Thiago Mendes struck to put Lille ahead, but Adama Niane converted a 92nd-minute penalty to pile the pressure on Lille’s beleaguered Argentinian boss.Saint-Etienne scored three times late on to beat Metz 3-1 and move up to third in the table, although Marseille, Bordeaux and Nantes will all be looking to leapfrog them when they play on Sunday.On Friday, Nabil Fekir’s last-gasp free-kick delivered three crucial points to Lyon as their captain sealed a home win over champions Monaco, who rested Colombian striker Radamel Falcao ahead of their midweek hosting of Besiktas.Share on: WhatsApp Paris, France | AFP | A Thomas Meunier brace gave Paris Saint-Germain a hard-fought 2-1 win at Dijon in Ligue 1 on Saturday after the hosts thought they’d earned a late draw through Benjamin Jeannot’s stunning volley.The result gives PSG, whose chairman Nasser al-Khelaifi is under investigation in his capacity as beIN Media chief over the sale of World Cup broadcasting rights, a six-point lead over second-placed Monaco who lost 3-2 at Lyon on Friday. Belgian right-back Meunier held his nerve to slot the opening goal past prone Dijon goalkeeper Baptiste Reynet, who had just parried a shot in what was an excellent performance.His teammate Jeannot’s goal will be a contender for goal of the season, running at full tilt he fired a left-footed volley with such force in the 87th minute it left PSG keeper Alphonse Areola rooted to the spot. “We are very focused on the league and the Champions League,” said PSG coach Unai Emery.“The president (Khelaifi) speaks constantly with Antero (Henrique, sporting director). I am kept informed at all times, and he told me that he would be with us for Wednesday’s game (at Anderlecht).”Match-winner Meunier insisted he was “1,000 percent” sure the dressing room wasn’t affected by the Khelaifi accusations.“It has nothing to do with the players of PSG, it doesn’t concern us,” he said.In a packed and raucous stadium, Dijon made a real fight of it as a PSG side deprived of Edinson Cavani, Marco Verratti, Thiago Motta, Thiago Silva and Layvin Kurzawa were given a rough time by the hosts.Emery said after the game that Cavani had been struggling with a foot problem that he suffered before playing for Uruguay in their final World Cup qualifiers.Angel Di Maria, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe could have scored a hatful and PSG hit the woodwork twice before their go-ahead goal on 70 minutes.

Traffic officials have asked those not heading for the Indian Grand Prix to avoid the Greater Noida Expressway and the Yamuna Expressway on Sunday.The officials have predicted rise in the volume of traffic plying on these two major roads thanks to the annual premier racing event taking place at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC).Though the actual event would take place between 3 and 4.30 pm, events on the sidelines lined up before the main race are expected to fetch heavy rush, amounting to the increased flow of traffic from 11.30 am onwards.The heaviest volume of traffic on the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway and Yamuna Expressway (from Zero Point to BIC) is anticipated to occur between 1 pm and 3pm and between five and seven in the evening.The district traffic police said they have tried to cause less inconvenience to commuters by making the least number of diversions, unlike last year, when traffic was diverted most major stretches.

Peyton ESPNDuring Peyton Manning’s retirement press conference this afternoon, the former Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos’ quarterback was asked about the sexual assault allegation from his time at Tennessee. The question was asked by USA Today‘s Lindsay Jones, who tweeted about her decision to ask the question. Manning deserved a chance to respond to what everyone has been saying about him for the last month. I had to ask.— Lindsay Jones (@bylindsayhjones) March 7, 2016Manning gave a somewhat lengthy answer that concluded with, “I did not do what has been alleged.” We didn’t get to hear him say that on ESPN, though. The feed of the press conference – suspiciously to some – cut out during Manning’s response. The NFL Network’s feed did not. Real subtle, @espn pic.twitter.com/CZkSiBKzEw— Pete Blackburn (@PeteBlackburn) March 7, 2016You can view Manning’s full retirement speech here.
By Garfield Angus, JIS Regional Office Montego Bay The Canadian-based Future Achievers International has recognised three Jamaican students for their high academic achievement and involvement in community activities.They are: student of the Hampton School in St. Elizabeth, Whitney Wallace; Head Boy at the Negril All-age School in Westmoreland Najay Gayle, who will be attending the Manning’s School in the parish in September; and grade five student at Negril All-age, Kwayne Bennett.At a function held during the staging of the 5th Biennial Jamaica Diaspora Conference at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, where the Jamaican chapter of the group was also officially launched, the students were awarded with scholarships awards and lauded for their outstanding work.Minister of Education, Hon. Rev. Ronald Thwaites, who was on hand, commended the students. He urged them to continue to do well at school and contribute to their communities.The Education Minister also hailed the work of Future Achievers International, founded by Jamaican Canada-based, Professor Cynthia Bled, and her husband Yves.“It shows the best of intentions of members of the Diaspora to uplift education in Jamaica, one student at a time, sometimes one school at a time, and this represents the best of all that we have been trying to say at the Diaspora conference,” he stated.Jamaica’s High Commissioner to Canada, Her Excellency Sheila Sealy-Monteith, who made the presentations, said the scholarship awards “is another example of tangible support from the Diaspora to the education system in Jamaica”.She informed that the award facility provides support for students from primary school through to the tertiary level, where they stand to receive CDN$2,000.“So that is a wonderful incentive for them to continue to perform well, to continue to perform at a high academic level, to contribute to their community, and just to become better citizens,” she stated.Expressing gratitude to Future Achievers, scholarship awardee, Najay Gayle, said he hopes to motivate other students to strive for success.“Hard work always pays off, and you will succeed if you try. Thanks to my mother and my teachers, and my father, for helping me along the way, and supporting me. Thanks also to Future Achievers for giving me this award,” he stated.Guidance Counsellor at the Negril All-age School, Gloria Gilpin, also thanked Future Achievers for recognising the students. “I know that they will continue to do well,” she said.Future Leaders International, which has branches in Kenya, Jamaica and Canada, provides support for young role models, who exemplify academic excellence and community involvement, to inspire both their elders and peers.It is funded through generous donations by the Bleds, and is seeking private, corporate and institutional support to expand its youth outreach.
