Iceland made its place in the world cup finals after a 2-0 win against Kosovo. Heimir Hallgrimsson team was fully aware that if they win over Group I’s bottom side will finalize their team’s position to qualify for the world cup finals. On the other hand, Gylfi Sigurdsson from Everton and team set their nerves pumping on the goal before the halftime. Even in the second half the spirit continued when Johann Berg’s second was set up by Sigurdsson during the next half of the game. Iceland was firm on ending the sports campaign by winning the last three finals. This paved the way for their entry into the quarterfinals of Euro cup in the year 2016.
Iceland’s emphatic final match victory by 3-0 in Turkey took them to the top in the ranking list. However, they tried their best to impose against the group’s bottom side. Earlier in the game, Samir Ujkani easily saved the far post shot made by Bodvarsson. Following the incredible shot Milot Rashica soon gave a shot that was long-range enough to flow past the Halldorsson post. It was an unexpected game turn that set our adrenaline pumping like never before. Iceland kept moving ahead, and their next move in the game completely changed its face to something that was unexpected.
Sigurdsson collected the ball and made his fourth goal for the qualifiers. With all his might he went past Amir Rrahmani and Ujkani for the fantastic shot. He was unstoppable! The hosts had a huge smile on their face seeing an incredible effort. All of this later led to the Iceland team entering the finals of the world cup for the first time. It was a happy moment for all the people of the country. It broke the records of Tobago and Trinidad to become the smallest country of all time to go for the World cup finals in football. The best part was that they won with pretty good scores too! Now, this is what we call an inspirational win!
We keep hearing about the achievements of top-class sports players. On the one hand Federer became the oldest man to win a Wimbledon, and on the other hand, we have Venus Williams who keeps on breaking records and winning games. At the age of 37, Venus Williams is nothing but a great source of inspiration for us. She has made it to the second week of her seventh straight major. While she was near the end of her first week, her sister and star performer Serena Williams gave birth to a daughter. These sisters have been in the news only for their exceptional achievements and nothing else.
Player Maria Sharapova returned from a drug suspension to play the Grand Slam. She was quite a headliner then in the first week of the open. She also won three matches in the week making sports lovers go gaga. However, the Williams sisters are a tennis family that has never been reported for any scandalous activity. We should certainly salute the spirit of this family that has brought many prestigious wins for the country. They are one of the best American sports persons who are an inspiration to all of us.
Venus and Serena have won 30 major singles and 14 more Grand Slam doubles championships in their career. They have ruled the Tennis arena for more than two decades now. Earlier there were the great Althea Gibson and Ashe before Venus and Serena came out of Compton to change the Tennis world. Serena played matches even while she was pregnant. The public couldn’t figure that out until she won the championship and the news was released that she is expecting a baby soon. It was a shock for all of us seeing the high spirits of this great lady for the love of tennis.
Politics is not everyone’s cup of coffee. We might often ponder, does politics matter at all in the affairs of the country? After the election of current US President Donald Trump, there has been a lot of chaos in the country about the economic condition in the US. It has happened so many times now that the Congress ends its meetings without reaching any primary legislation despite the Republicans having a majority in both the houses and of course the presidency.
The chaos originated when Trump fired his chief of staff and the head of the press office just after ten days of his office joining. To some, it might be a surprise, but for most of us, it is not that President Trump has received the lowest approval rating to date that is 37% only. Since the Second World War, this is the first time any President of America has got such scores at this stage of his office. This is one side of the country that is politics, but even more important the economy what the impact of all this turmoil on the economy of the country is?
Though the political conditions are not suitable, the Dow Jones Index has gone up to 22000 an all-time high. This can be taken in two ways, a slap in the face of the government that economy cannot be stagnated by your rubbish, and second, we do not care what you want. The negative publicity of Federal actions gets suppressed amidst the world-class businesses operating in the US. Nothing is expected to happen like the 2008-09 recession. All we can do is stay optimistic and wait for the Government to do the essentials the public expects from them.
