A minute later they were 1-0 down.Serge Gnabry picked up Joshua Kimmich’s chipped pass on the right of the Lyon penalty area.The striker veered left along the edge of the box past two defenders before unleashing a left foot shot that flashed high over Anthony Lopes into the top left hand corner of the Lyon goalGnabry’s second came on the cusp of half-time.Ivan Perisic wriggled free down the left and squared for Robert Lewandowski. The normally lethal Poland international managed to botch his tap-in but it rebounded against Lopes into Gnabry’s path.He slotted in gleefully.Lyon had the chance to regain a foothold in the match 15 minutes after the pause but Ekambi failed to steer the ball past Neuer after being sent clear by Houssem Aouar.The Germans suffered few scares afterwards and Lewandowski added the third in the 87th minute to seal the victory and set up a mouthwatering final against Paris Saint-Germain on August 23 at the Estadio da Luz.RelatedPosts Bayern Munich fans undergo Super Cup coronavirus tests Vidal lands in Milan to complete move from Barca to Inter Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says “I am very proud of the team,” said Lyon sporting director Juninho after the match. “We played against a great team.

But chief executive John Delaney insists the FAI Board will not rush to make a decision as it considers its options. Delaney told Newstalk: “The Board will meet within the next week. “Today was a day to deal with Giovanni and [assistant manager] Marco [Tardelli] in a dignified manner, and hopefully people will respect the job he has done. “We will meet and determine a process. We do have time. The European qualifiers don’t start until next September. We will take stock of the last couple of days and then discuss the process.” O’Neill, who was sacked by Sunderland at the end of March, is not the only potential candidate to fill the vacancy, with ex-Ireland manager Mick McCarthy, currently at Ipswich, his former captain Roy Keane and current Norwich boss Chris Hughton also figuring prominently in the betting. Delaney said: “I think there will be plenty of interest because first of all, 24 teams go to the European Championships, it’s genuinely accepted we have a good crop of young players and the monetary incentive has been good over the last number of years. “The knowledge of the Irish job because of Trapattoni across Europe has created interest in managing the Irish team. It will be interesting to see who puts their best foot forward.” Asked specifically about Keane, who famously returned home from the Far East before the 2002 World Cup finals had started, Delaney said, laughing: “I don’t think I will comment on any individual.” Trapattoni’s reign as Ireland manager came to an end on Wednesday morning when the two parties agreed an amicable split in the wake of Tuesday night’s 1-0 World Cup qualifier defeat in Austria which effectively ended their hopes of making it to Brazil next summer. Martin O’Neill had already been installed as the bookmakers’ favourite to replace the 74-year-old Italian even before his departure had been announced as it became clear his days in charge were drawing to a close. He added: “I think names like Mick, Brian McDermott, Chris Hughton, Roy Keane all come into the pot – Martin O’Neill, of course. “I wouldn’t want to comment on any individual chances. Mick has done a very good job for Ireland and in England as well. “We will look at the job description over the next week. The last four or five days have been difficult for everyone in Irish football. It was important to get a decision made in a dignified way. “We have to look at who can get the best out of the players available to us. Sometimes in Ireland when things are great, we get too carried away; when they are not, we get too negative.” The collective fate of Trapattoni and Tardelli was sealed at the Ernst Happel Stadion when David Alaba’s late winner left Ireland needing to win both of their remaining qualifiers against Germany, who need one more win to ensure top spot, and Kazakhstan handsomely and Sweden to lose their last two fixtures to secure an improbable passage to the finals. There were discussions shortly after the game, and talks resumed on Wednesday morning, when a mutual split was agreed. Trapattoni, who had insisted once again during his post-match press conference that he would not resign, said: “I want to thank everyone in Ireland who has given us their support during our time here, which has always meant a lot to us. “We leave this country with emotion because we understand the Irish supporters who have a well-deserved international reputation and they have our utmost respect. “I would like to thank John Delaney, [FAI president] Paddy McCaul, [honorary secretary] Michael Cody and the FAI Board for their support and friendship over the last five and a half years. “I would also want to thank all FAI staff members, including the backroom team and the players, who have been great to work with during the last three campaigns. “I wish them well in the future and hope that the job we have done leaves everything in a good place for my successor to take over.” The Football Association of Ireland will take its time to decide on a successor to Giovanni Trapattoni.

Wigan 1 Chelsea 1Chelsea continue to be plagued by uncertainty at the back, with Petr Cech’s 88th-minute fumble costing them two potentially crucial points.The Blues goalkeeper failed to hold Hugo Rodallega’s shot and was not helped by Raul Meireles, whose hesitation allowed Jordi Gomez to pounce on the loose ball and score from close range.AdChoices广告It cancelled out a 58th-minute strike by Daniel Sturridge, whose ninth goal of the season looked like closing the gap on his former club Manchester City to four points.Now leaders City, who play Arsenal on Sunday, have an opportunity to move nine clear of third-placed Chelsea and reassert their authority following a recent defeat at Stamford Bridge.Sturridge crept behind the Wigan back line to beautifully control Ashley Cole’s diagonal ball on his left foot and then shoot into the corner of the net with his right.But the defensive problems that have marred Chelsea’s season were soon evident again when a mistake by Branislav Ivanovic almost gifted Wigan a goal.Cech had to rush from his line to prevent Rodallega latching onto the defender’s poor backpass, and with Cech stranded during the scramble which followed, Ivanovic atoned by heading away Franco di Santo’s goal-bound shot.It was a fortunate escape for the visitors but their luck run out after former Chelsea man Di Santo cut inside Ivanovic and teed up Rodallega, whose weak effort ought to have been comfortably dealt with by Cech.Wigan will feel they deserved a break, having arguably been denied a clear penalty late in the first half when Victor Moses’ shot struck Ivanovic’s left arm.Follow West London Sport on Twitter

14 July 2008Durban-based sugar equipment and consulting company Bosch Projects has established a subsidiary in Brazil, with the aim of marketing its patented cane diffusion technology to the country’s booming sugar and ethanol sectors.The company’s expansion to Brazil started with the in-house development of equipment using its patented Chainless Diffuser technology, which is applied to an existing sugar extraction process.Bosch Projects do Brasil was established to provide an exclusive technology licensing agreement to Dedini Industrias de Base, the largest equipment supplier to the sugar and ethanol sector in the South American country.The subsidiary’s head office was opened in the city of Piracicaba in Sao Paulo state toward the end of January this year.“Realising that the Brazilian sugar and ethanol sector was experiencing an unprecedented boom, we decided to find a Brazilian partner to whom to sell our new diffuser technology,” Bosch Projects sugar equipment director Ivan Voigt told SAinfo last week.To date, Dedini has taken orders for 10 chainless diffusers including a number of 15-metre diffusers, the largest cane diffusers in the world. Also included in the licensing agreement are Bosch Projects whole stick shredders, rotary juice screens, long-tube evaporators, continuous vacuum pans, direct contact juice heaters, vertical crystallisers and massecuite reheaters.World’s largest sugar cane industryAccording to the company, the Brazilian sugar cane industry is the largest in the world, processing about 500-million tons of cane per annum.The country also produces the most sugar and ethanol in the world, exporting most of both. As such it is attracting huge foreign investment in the cane industry, which is also being spurred on by the growing international trend toward biofuels.In all, it is expected that about 80 new cane processing factories will be built over the next three years.“The Chainless Diffuser technology we make available to our Brazilian partner forms a part of a growing trend in Brazil toward cane diffusers, as opposed to cane crushing mills,” said Voigt.Global ambitionBosch Projects is active in many sugar-producing countries, with partnerships with countries in Brazil, USA and Southeast Asia.The company has also worked as consultants and engineers in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya, Sudan, Egypt, Central African Republic, Cameroon and Senegal, Hawaii, USA, Mexico, Guyana, Barbados, Colombia, Venezuela and Brazil Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines and Fiji.“We also offer technical consultancy serves to two prominent British sugar companies,” Voigt added.Engineering News reported last week that Bosch Projects had been appointed by the United Sugar Company Egypt to assist in the erecting and commissioning of a packing plant, as well as handling and storage facilities for packed sugar at a new refined sugar plant situated 170 kilometres to the east of Cairo.In addition, the publication adds that the company is also involved in the expansion of Illovo Sugar’s Dwangwa sugar mill in Malawi.SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo material
The Jamaica Promotions Corporation (JAMPRO) has facilitated over $200 million in sales of local goods to the tourism sector over the last two years under its national linkages strategy. “And this is not the full sales, as a number of business takes place which is not necessarily captured in our data,” said JAMPRO Export Manager, Marlene Porter. “The furniture sector has seen some tremendous growth. In agriculture, a lot of them (hotels) are virtually buying all of their vegetables locally,” she noted. Ms. Porter was speaking to JIS News at the Montego Bay Convention Centre on Monday, April 29, where the three-day Jamaica Product Exchange (JAPEX) is being held. She noted that since 2004, JAMPRO has taken on, in a very structured way, the promotion of local products. “For the tourism sector we have developed a national linkages strategy and we are continuing to work with the Ministry of Tourism and Entertainment and the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association (JHTA) to build the linkages within the local economy,” she stated. She said over the years, there has been a steady rise in the use of local products in the tourism sector, citing furniture and agriculture as the areas benefiting the most from the collaboration. “I am confident that there is a commitment from the sector to support local businesses,” she stated. Come the end of September, JAMPRO will stage its business linkages event at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, which will run for about three days. “This is the prime buying time for the hospitality sector, and this event will bring out local suppliers of goods and services, and the buyers from the hospitality sector, the purchasing managers, and owners of the gift shops,” Ms. Porter told JIS News. “We match the buyers and suppliers together. We are encouraging the buyers to come out and support our business linkages event,” she urged. The JAMPRO official said there are very good offerings in the local producing market, and persons should visit and utilize the agency’s Jamaica Business Opportunity Service (JBOS). They can obtain information by visiting www.jamaicabos.com, where there is a comprehensive on-line directory of suppliers and buyers, and up-to-date information for partnership opportunities for local firms. JBOS is a powerful matchmaking tool that is designed to bring business opportunities to entrepreneurs, by systematically connecting them with local and international buyers and suppliers. It also facilitates a direct communication channel to suppliers for efficient purchasing decisions. Turning to the business being conducted on the JAPEX floor, the Export Manager said the feedback from tourism stakeholders, indicate that are opportunities for local businesses. “They (hospitality sector) are optimistic, they are seeing good business, and it is looking good for the hotel sector,” she told JIS News.
