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.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.
