WorldCup Update: Dutch Survive Near-Upset vs. Australia

The Netherlands have one foot in the FIFA World Cup knockout stages
after an exciting 3-2 victory over Australia on Wednesday at the
Estadio Beira-Rio in Porto Alegre, Brazil.

Both teams held and surrendered the lead at least once in a thrilling, end-to-end match that witnessed a leading contender for goal of the
tournament from Tim Cahill, who equalised for Australia in the first
half moments after Arjen Robben had opened the scoring for the Dutch.

The Socceroos took a shocking 2-1 lead early in the second half
through Mile Jedinak's well-taken penalty, but the Netherlands fought
back with goals from Robin van Persie and substitute Memphis Depay to take all three points.

As Love Fm Abuja sports anchor Udeme George noted, the match provided some of the best excitement of what has already been an engrossing World Cup Unbelievable turn of events. This is easily the most
entertaining and thrilling game of the World Cup so far #AUSvsNED.

With the win, the Netherlands remained atop Group B with six points and will almost certainly advance to the knockout stages. Their progress will become official if Chile—who also entered the second
round of group matches with three points—defeat or draw with Spain
later Wednesday.

For Australia, the result means almost certain elimination from the
tournament, a fate that would be sealed if Chile win or draw against
Spain later Wednesday.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
