South Africa's captain shot dead

South African footballer shot dead
BBC News


South Africa's football captain and goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa has died after being shot, South African police say.

The incident reportedly happened at Meyiwa's girlfriend's house in Vosloorus, south of Johannesburg.

The 27-year-old played for Orlando Pirates and had played in South Africa's last four Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

On Saturday, he was in action for his club, when they progressed to the semi-finals of the South African League Cup.

In a statement, the South African Police Service said two men had entered the house, around 20:00 (18:00 GMT), while a third man remained outside.

All three fled after shots were fired, in what local media reports say was an attempted burglary.

A reward of about $14,000 has been offered for information leading to the suspects' arrest.

Meyiwa was declared dead on arrival at the hospital.

He started playing for Orlando Pirates, based in the Parktown district of Johannesburg, in 2005.

"This is a sad loss whichever way you look at it, to Senzo's family, his extended family, Orlando Pirates and to the nation.'' said Pirates' chairman Irvin Khoza.

Last year, the Pirates were runners-up in the CAF Champions League. losing 3-1 on aggregate to Al Ahly of Egypt.

Re: Kevon Carter, national footballer, has passed.

Army to attend Carter memorial.
By Ian Prescott (Express).


THE DEFENCE FORCE will wear black arm bands on Friday for their next Digicel Pro League match against St Ann’s Rangers, and a day later also attend a memorial for the fallen T&T soldier and national footballer Kevon Carter.

Saturday marks a year since the former Trinidad and Tobago international footballer died of a heart attack at age 30, after training with his club team Defence Force FC. Carter, an attacking wide midfielder, had 25 caps for Trinidad and Tobago and was a member of both Trinidad and Tobago’s 2012 Caribbean Cup and 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup squads.

“On Saturday, the family having a prayer service at home, and the whole team will be there,” stated Army head-coach Marvin Gordon, a former national midfielder. Gordon and Carter were teammates when the deceased footballer was a young player, and stated that the Army team will be doing all possible to become inaugural winners of the Kevon Carter Trophy, which goes to the third round winners of the Digicel Pro League. Gordon felt that nothing has been the same since Carter died.

“You can’t replace Carter. What we have to do is find a next was to get results,” said Gordon, who spoke of recent inconsistent results from the 2010 and 2012 pro League champions. “He was the heart of the team because of the attitude and what he brought to the table,” Gordon added.

“To replace him is hard. I don’t think it have a player in Trinidad to replace him. We lost a big peice of the puzzle. “The last round is the Kevon Carter round, his round, and we will be doing everything in our powers to try and win it,” Gordon stated.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Carrying Marvin Lee’s legacy.
By Shaun Fuentes (Guardian).


Miguel Ross, the younger brother of the late Marvin Lee, is now carrying on his brother’s legacy and is hoping to represent this country on the international stage.

Marvin, the former captain of the T&T Under-20 team, passed away in March 2003, almost two years after sustaining head and neck injuries in a collision with Landon Donovan during a Concacaf U-20 World Cup qualifier at the Marvin Lee Stadium in Macoya. He was left paralysed after the incident and succumbed to illness as a result of his weakened state.

Miguel was nine years old at the time. Now he is at West Chester University in the United States, a Division II that competes in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC). He was the second topscorer with 11 goals in 2013 and in 2014 was named to the Athletic Conference’s All Star second team. His preferred position is left midfield or forward. And his goal—to keep his brother’s spirit alive.

“My older brother had been a major influence in my life. Growing up with someone that was extremely talented and driven made me wanted to excel more in the sport of soccer. My brother and I shared the same love and passion for the beautiful game. We always joked about me growing up to be better than him,” said Ross who began playing at age nine at the Joe Public coaching clinic before moving to Creek Sports and Cultural Club and 1st Santa Rosa FC’s U-17 team.

Talking about his experience thus far in the US, Ross spoke about the differences. “The experience in the US has been very enlightening. I have met new people and experienced new things. The soccer here is so different compared to back home it’s a lot more physical compared to how it was when I left Trinidad a few years ago. The schooling is also different compared to back home, but overall it has been a great experience and I’m very grateful that I have been blessed with these new experiences.”

Now Ross, like his deceased brother, wants to represent the “Red, White and Black” and is eyeing a try out with the national men’s Olympic team currently preparing under Zoran Vranes. “My family, my idol and my country are what inspire me the most,” Ross said. “My country inspires me to excel. I want to put my country on the map. I want to show the soccer world that T&T can be a forced to be reckoned with. We have the talent and the ability to be country that other teams are fearful to play against.”

The drive to accomplish his goals stems from above for this youngster. “As an older brother Marvin demanded that I must be better than him, in every aspect of the game. Every time I put my cleats on and hit the soccer field I feel like my brother is looking down at me saying, ‘Well done little bro, keep doing your thing and accomplish your dreams and goal.’ This thought alone makes me work harder to accomplish my goals,” Ross said.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Hart’s mother passes.
T&T Express.


The mother of Stephen Hart, Trinidad and Tobago’s senior national team coach, has died.

The passing of Monica Hart, 92, on Wednesday night at the Scarborough Hospital, was not unexpected since she had been ailing for a while. Hart flew to Tobago on Sunday to see his mother, before returning to join the national team’s preparation for the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Hart was due to conduct last night’s training session at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva, but is due to travel to Tobago again for the funeral. The national team will leave on Wednesday for a camp in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA, before heading off to the CONCACAF Gold Cup, where they open against Guatemala on July 9 in Chicago in the US.

Condolences Coach.
The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today are Christians who acknowledge Jesus ;with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.
