Panama national team footballer Gilberto Hernández killed by gunmen



A player for Panama’s national football team has been shot dead in the city of Colón.

Gunmen opened fire on a group of people, among them 26-year-old Gilberto Hernández, who had gathered in a building in the city.

Hernández died and seven others were injured in the attack.

It is not yet clear if the footballer, who also played for Club Atlético Independiente, was the target of the shooting or what the motive was.

There has been a rise in murders in Colón over the past months as two rival gangs fight for control of lucrative drug smuggling routes.

So far, more than 50 people have been killed in Colón, a city of 40,000 inhabitants, so far this year.

The port city, on the north entrance to the Panama canal, is a transit point for cocaine smuggled from South America through Panama to Europe.

The shooting happened on Sunday afternoon local time.

Two gunmen forced a taxi driver to take them to a building in the city’s Barrio Norte neighbourhood and opened fire on the group gathered there.

The gunmen fled the scene.

Gilberto Hernández had made his debut in the Panamanian national side in March this year in a match against Guatemala.

The player’s father urged the youth of Colón “to stop the violence”, and called on the authorities to “launch projects to save the youth from this violence”.

He also asked the killers to hand themselves in: “Don’t cause more harm.”

Panama’s football federation and Gilberto Hernández’s club expressed their condolences to his family.

Ghana face Liberia in friendly match in Accra Today



Ghana will play Liberia in a friendly match at the Accra Sports Stadium on Tuesday afternoon, with kickoff scheduled for 4 p.m. local time.

The Black Stars enter the game with high spirits following their recent victory over the Central African Republic in Kumasi. In that match, the Central African Republic posed a significant challenge initially, threatening to deny Ghana a spot in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations.

However, Ghana’s Right to Dream Academy graduates, Mohammed Kudus and Ernest Nuamah, turned the tide with two crucial goals, securing a victory and Ghana’s 10th consecutive AFCON qualification.

Now, all eyes are on Liberia, a team that did not manage to qualify for the AFCON. Nevertheless, they cannot be underestimated, as they will be eager for a memorable victory against Ghana.

Historically, Ghana hold the upper hand with an impressive eight wins out of 19 games played against Liberia since their first encounter in 1972. Notably, Liberia emerged victorious in their last encounter, defeating the Black Stars 2-0 in a friendly match in Monrovia.

This time, Liberia aim to replicate that success in Accra, where the Black Stars have sometimes faced challenges in defeating opponents compared to Kumasi. Both teams view this friendly as part of their preparations for the upcoming 2026 World Cup qualifiers set to kick off in November.

Spanish FA president Rubiales resigns over Hermoso kiss



Luis Rubiales has resigned as president of the Spanish Football Federation following criticism for kissing Spain forward Jenni Hermoso at the Women’s World Cup final presentation ceremony.

Hermoso, 33, said the kiss after Spain beat England was not consensual and she filed a legal complaint last Tuesday.

Rubiales said he had submitted his resignation to federation acting president Pedro Rocha in a statement.

“I cannot continue my work,” he told Piers Morgan on his television show.

The 46-year-old has also resigned from his position as vice-president of Uefa’s executive committee.

The fallout from the kiss has engulfed Spanish football in recent weeks and overshadowed Spain’s World Cup win, with Rubiales ignoring repeated calls to resign.

On Friday, a prosecutor filed a complaint with Spain’s high court – following Hermoso’s testimony on Tuesday – against Rubiales for sexual assault and coercion.

Rubiales claimed the kiss was “mutual and “consensual” but had been provisionally suspended by football’s world governing body Fifa.

“After the quick suspension carried out by Fifa, plus the rest of open proceedings against me, it is evident that I will not be able to return to my position,” Rubiales’ statement read.

“Insisting on waiting and holding on is not going to contribute to anything positive, neither to the federation nor to Spanish football.”

Rubiales said he hoped his departure would boost Spain’s joint bid with Morocco and Portugal to host the 2030 World Cup.

He added: “I have faith in the truth and I will do everything in my power to prevail.

“My daughters, my family and the people who love me have suffered the effects of excessive persecution, as well as many falsehoods, but it is also true that on the street, more and more every day, the truth is prevailing.”

Some 81 Spain players, including all 23 World Cup winners, said they would not play for the national team again while Rubiales was in his position.

World Cup-winning manager Jorge Vilda – considered a close ally of Rubiales – was sacked on 5 September amid the scandal, with Montse Tome named as his successor.

Politicians, footballers and celebrities have spoken out against Rubiales, while protesters gathered at the federation’s headquarters last month to demand his resignation.

Spain’s acting Labour minister, Yolanda Diaz, posted on X (formerly Twitter): “The feminist country is advancing faster and faster.

“The transformation and improvement of our lives is inevitable. We are with you, Jenni, and with all women.”

Irene Montero, Spain’s equality minister, added: “It’s over.”

Asked by Morgan whether something in particular finally led him to resign, Rubiales said he spoke to his family and listened to the advice of friends.

“My father, my daughters, I spoke with them – they know it’s not a question about me – and some friends very close to me said to me ‘Luis, you need to focus on your dignity and to continue your life because if not, you are going to damage people you love and the sport you love’,” Rubiales said.

“This was a question of not only me. An attitude towards me can affect third parties [that are] very important. It was the intelligent thing that I had to do.”

On Sunday, Hermoso received a warm welcome from supporters and team-mates of her domestic club, Pachuca, before their 2-1 win against Pumas in the Liga MX women’s league in Mexico.

The 33-year-old unveiled a mural on the walls of the Hidalgo Stadium celebrating her achievements with Spain in the Women’s World Cup, and was also given a framed jersey with her number 10 on it.

CAR coach “curses” Black Stars to AFCON doom after losing qualifier in Kumasi



Head coach of the Central African Republic Raoul Savoy says the Black Stars will be up for another humiliation when they take to the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Black Stars secured a ticket to the competition to be staged in Ivory Coast following a 2-1 win over CAR at the Baba Yara Stadium on Thursday evening.

After Mohammed Kudus had equalised just before the break, the game seemed to heading for a draw till Antoine Semenyo and Ernest Nuamah combined to give the Black Stars the win.

The defeat also means CAR will have to wait another time to play at the continental showpiece as they finished third in Group E.

According to Savoy, the Black Stars were hugely favoured by the referee on the day and were handed so many privileges by the officials.

He believes Ghana could be in for another disaster if they take the performance on Thursday to Ivory Coast.

“Your next AFCON will be like the last one,” a trusted Savoy said as he left the press room at the Baba Yara Stadium.

The Black Stars were booted out in the group stage at the last AFCON in Cameroon after picking up just one point from their group.

Then playing under Milovan Rajevac, Ghan lost to Morocco in their opening game and drew against Gabon before suffering a defeat to Comoros.
