  • England Stadium Wembley's response a fitting tribute to Paris tragedy

     

     Football was united on Tuesday evening as both England and France supporters showed their solidarity in the wake of the terror attacks

    It was all about the occasion rather than the game, but that’s the way it was meant to be. From the England fans singing La Marseillaise before kick-off to the floral tributes which laid beside the pitch throughout the match, football’s response to the Paris terror attacks was a fitting one.With the grieving process continuing back home, the France national side came to Wembley not so much for a friendly international as to play their part in the first step on the road to recovery after the events of Friday night.


    For the past three days, the players and fans of Les Bleus had seen through the blue, white and red light displays on global landmarks that the world was uniting behind them. But tonight they felt it.

    From the minute French fans walked down Wembley Way it was clear to them this was going to be no ordinary night at the football. There they saw England fans waving the tricolour on their way into the stadium, while some matched St George’s cross hats with France shirts as their chosen attire.

    It was no different inside the stadium. A mosaic of the French flag was raised aloft by England supporters as 71,223 people joined together to sing La Marseillaise, then there was a moment of silence as impeccably observed as any in Wembley’s history. There followed the laying of flowers on the touchline by dignitaries from both nations as well as a touching team photograph in which the two sets of players linked arms with their adversaries.

    The show of solidarity continued long into the game. Every time the visiting supporters struck up a chorus of their national anthem during the pedestrian contest being served up on the pitch, the home contingent greeted them with applause. England fans even took to greeting each French pass with a cheer of ‘Ole’ at one stage, while every attempt by the visitors to begin a Mexican wave was joyfully backed up in the home end.

    As French substitutions were made there was applause, rather than barracking, from England supporters. And there were special receptions for the second-half introductions of Lassana Diarra and Antoine Griezmann following their decision to play on in the wake of family members being caught up in Friday’s attacks.

    If the atmosphere has been edgy rather than energetic at Wembley for recent England internationals, this one was altogether more surreal. Only when Wayne Rooney closed in on goal and fired just wide of Hugo Lloris’ post did the home fans really seem to have finally realised there was a game going on.

    Dele Alli’s wonderful strike in the closing moments of the first half prompted a slightly more natural feel about proceedings, but even after Rooney made it 2-0 there was no disguising that the night’s main objective had been achieved long before 8pm.

    he French players, clearly going through the motions as they continue to come to terms with the consequences of the attacks on their capital, will have taken something from the normality of playing a football match. A final spontaneous burst of La Marseillaise from their supporters shortly after full-time was rewarded with the recognition of both sets of players, while the England band played to the tune of their opponents' anthem.

    It was the right note on which to end.

    England won 2-0, but this was not about Alli and Rooney. It was about Liberté, égalité and fraternité.

  • Top ten facts you must know about Ethiopia

    1.  Ethiopian female Su-27 Pilot (Capt. Aster Tolossa) the first female pilot in the world to have shot down an enemy aircraft in air to air combat. Lieutenant Haymanot Hailemariam is the world's first female Su-27 pilot & W/o Asegedech Asefa is the first African woman to pilot an Airplane in 1962.

    2. Ethiopia is the origion of  human being:  The remains of the earliest known child from humanity’s family tree have been discovered in Ethiopia, in an unprecedented find that fills in a critical missing link in human evolution. The almost complete skeleton belongs to a baby girl of the species Australopithecus afarensis — a probable human ancestor that was among the first to walk on two legs — who died at the age of three about 3.3 million years ago.

    The girl, which has been named "Selam" after the word for peace in several Ethiopian languages, is by far the oldest fossil of a hominid child yet unearthed, and blurs the line between apes and humans.

    Early analysis of Selam has already started to transform understanding of a pivotal stage in the evolutionary process that led ultimately to Homo sapiens. Her anatomical features lie squarely in between those of humans and other apes, showing adaptations both for walking upright on two legs and for climbing and swinging from trees.

    This suggests that the species lived on the cusp of the human family’s transition to a bipedal, ground-based existence, which is generally accepted as one of the most crucial events in the emergence of the modern anatomy

     

    3. Ethiopia is about 7.5 years behind the United Kingdom. This is because Ethiopia is the only country in the world to have 13 months in a year. Ethiopians also celebrate New Year in September, meaning that they are currently only a couple of months into the year 2006, whilst we near the end of 2013.

    4. Ethiopians measure time from when the sun rises and count time on the opposite side of the clock. When the sun rises at 6 o’clock it is said to be 12 o’clock – the start of the day in Ethiopia. Confused? Don’t worry, you get used to it after a few days!

    5. There are over 80 different languages spoken in Ethiopia. The most widely spoken of these are Oromo and Amharic. Luckily for foreign travellers, English and Arabic are also widely spoken.

    4.Ethiopian children must learn both their tribal language and the country’s official language of Amharic. They must also have a good grasp of English by the time they start secondary school. From the age of 12 onwards, all school lessons are carried out in English.

    6.The legendary Ark of the Covenant, the relic said to hold the 10 Commandments, is claimed to be housed in a church in Ethiopia. Only one man, the guardian, is actually allowed to see the ark, so whether or not it is actually there remains a mystery.

     

    7.Ethiopia is one of only two nations in the world never to have been occupied. This is despite the Italians twice trying and failing to take the country. In case you were wondering, Russia is the other country.

    8..Ever heard Rastafarians talking about Haile Selassie? He was an Ethiopian Emperor, born in 1892 and is worshipped by followers of the Rastafarian movement. He is not to be confused with legendary distance runner Haile Gebre Selassie!

    9.Ethiopia is the only country in Africa with its own alphabet. Actually it uses an abugida, also known as an alpha-syllabary, which consists of 209 symbols and 25 letter variants.

    10.Ethiopian Abebe Bikila was the first African to win gold in the Olympic Games. He finished the marathon in first place after running the whole race barefoot.
