Richarlison double fires Everton past Wolves


first_imgIt was an encouraging day for Everton boss Marco Silva, who handed first Premier League starts to summer signings in Moise Kean, Alex Iwobi and Fabian Delph, the latter making his first appearance in the league since January with Manchester City.All three made an impact with former Arsenal winger Iwobi scoring for the second successive game.Romain Saiss and Raul Jimenez, with his eighth goal in eight starts this season, had twice drawn the visitors level.Wolves remain without a win in four league games after suffering their first defeat of the season.Only Bolton, bottom of League One with none, had scored fewer goals heading into this weekend than Everton.But Silva’s side ended that run within 12 minutes, which provided as many goals as in Everton’s previous 180 on the pitch.The opener was a shambles from Wolves’ point of view.Conor Coady hesitated in playing a backpass to Rui Patricio so when he eventually did, the goalkeeper was taken by surprise and could only stab the ball to Kean, who fortuitously diverted it into the path of Richarlison and he blasted into the net.Everton, with six successive home league clean sheets having not conceded since February in their last Goodison defeat, would have been hopeful of extending that run considering their record so far this season.But that evaporated within four minutes as Adama Traore skipped past Lucas Digne and his low cross rebounded for Saiss to fire home from close range.Back came Everton and Gylfi Sigurdsson swung in a right-wing cross which Iwobi headed home at the far post.Joao Moutinho, one of the Wolves quartet rested after beating Torino in the Europa League in midweek, was introduced on the hour mark.The changes worked as Jimenez levelled 15 minutes from time, the striker stealing in at the far post behind the napping Digne to bundle home a Ryan Bennett long throw flicked on by Willy Boly.But Richarlison had the final say, heading home a Digne cross 10 minutes from time.Boly’s second yellow card in the final seconds added to Wolves’ frustration.0Shares0000(Visited 19 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Everton striker Richarlison inspired their win over Wolves © AFP / Paul ELLISLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Sep 1 – Richarlison bagged a brace as Everton earned a dramatic 3-2 win over Wolves on Sunday.Brazil forward Richarlison scored the winner with 10 minutes left at Goodison Park to hand the Toffees their second win of the Premier League season.last_img read more

Plans to join PESCO military pact disregard Irish neutrality – Donegal TD


first_imgSinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Deputy Pearse Doherty has reiterated his objection to Government plans for Ireland to participate in the PESCO EU Military Defence Project.The Sinn Féin TD was the sole Donegal Deputy to vote against the proposal when it was voted on by the Dáil last week. Doherty said his vote against the project comes amid ongoing fears that the pact is simply another step towards the creation of an EU wide army.Outlining his opposition to the plan, Deputy Doherty said: “The decision by Independent Alliance TDs and Fianna Fail to back Fine Gael’s plan for Ireland to join PESCO shows a flagrant disregard for Irish neutrality. “The framework for PESCO is outlined in the Lisbon treaty however, despite the Taoiseach’s comments in the Dáil last week, the Irish people did not sign up for PESCO when they voted for the Lisbon treaty.“In fact, as part of the treaty’s ratification, the constitution was amended to explicitly prohibit Irish participation in PESCO therefore Ireland cannot participate in European common defence.“The Government has shown a complete disregard for our constitution, and has attempted to mislead people as to what PESCO is and what Ireland agreed to by ratifying the Lisbon treaty.“The Irish people never agreed to PESCO in fact, the constitution was amended to specifically exclude Ireland from the pact. “Furthermore, we’ve seen political figures from different EU member states over recent months openly hint at the possibility of this pact paving the way for an EU wide army – that is very concerning.“I am proud and stand by my decision last week to vote against the motion, and I was the only Donegal TD to do so.“By voting in favour of the plan, Fine Gael, Fianna Fail and the Independent Alliance have effectively signed off on Ireland’s participation in a military alliance which is aligned with and intended to compliment NATO.”Plans to join PESCO military pact disregard Irish neutrality – Donegal TD was last modified: December 11th, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)last_img read more
