The Week in Pictures: December 22 – December 28, 2015

Dec 29, 2015

Weekly news in pictures

With no end of news breaking around the world last week we take a moment to revisit some of the biggest stories of the week

In the Vatican at midnight on Christmas Eve, the night before the day celebrated as marking the birth of Jesus Christ, a significant figure in Christianity a religion followed by some two billion people around the world, Pope Francis preached against what he called “a culture of indifference” and “a society so often intoxicated by consumerism & hedonism, wealth & extravagance, appearances & narcissism” and called upon members of the Catholic church to be devout and “act soberly”.

In Paraguay the President, Horacio Cartes, freed up relief funds to the value of $3.5 million and declared a state of emergency after heavy rains that began on December 18th caused massive and widespread flooding in the region. Some 20,000 people had to be evacuated in neighboring Argentina, and thousands more were left homeless in both southern Brazil and northern Uruguay after local rivers burst their banks. It is the worst flooding in the region for years displacing over 150,000 people.

In Victoria, Australia, massive fast moving bush fires devastated communities in both Wye River and Separation Creek last week, and also caused the evacuation of the town of Lorne as some 5,500 acres were set ablaze by a lightning strike on the 19th of December. One in three houses in the effected towns has been left uninhabitable with 1,600 people evacuated as a precaution against sudden wind shifts endangering them. Hundreds of firefighters were called in from across the country to tackle the blaze.

In sport Southampton gave Arsenal a 4-0 spanking at St. Mary’s in the English Premier League last week a result from which manager Arsene Wenger claims they will bounce back as they play Bournemouth at home on Monday evening. Will they manage it or become yet another of the mighty teams to hit a slump in performance? You’ll have to read our daily news pages to find out but in the meantime lets look again at some of the big stories we covered from around the world last week.

When questioned the driver claimed that he was attempting to “travel through time” at the time of the impact with the thankfully deserted businesses, and no one was hurt during the incident, including the driver from Nashville who was wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash.

Uruguay Will Cause Problems for Chile

Chile will take on Uruguay in the first quarter-final of the 44th edition of the Copa America. This match could be one of the most intriguing clashes in the tournament as the two teams have characteristically different styles and mentalities. Chile will play on the floor, attacking and pressing all the time while Uruguay is going to sit back and try to win set pieces in the opposition’s half. The hosts, who seriously lack height, have troubles with high balls and La Celeste could be able to exploit this despite the fact that Chile will play in front of their own crowd.

 

IBTimes.com: Chile vs. Uruguay 2015: Prediction, Preview For Copa America Quarterfinal

 

In the first quarter-final of the 2015 Copa America the hosts will entertain the title-holders. Uruguay is the most successful team in the history of the competition with 15 titles, while Chile have yet to win their first Copa despite taking part in all the 44 edition of the tournament.

Chile have never had a chance like this to win the Copa or any other international trophy, which puts a considerable amount of pressure on the team. The group of players is the best in quality the nation ever had, however their display was far from immaculate in the group stages, as followers of live sports results might have noticed.

Arturo Vidal and co. were the best against Bolivia, in a match when the pressure was off, with advancing already secured. However their defensive problems and their lack of height contributed significantly to a 3–3 scoreline against Mexico, and all this could be exploited by Uruguay too, but the hosts are still the favourites to advance.

 

Goal.com: Sampaoli: Uruguay last-eight tie is a final for Chile

 

Uruguay coach Jorge Sampaoli thinks that title-holders Uruguay will cause a lot of problems in their respective Copa America quarter-final at the Estadio Nacional. After winning group A convincingly, La Roja is on track to win its first title in the 99-year long history of the competition, to please all the Chileans who follow sports scores.

However, Sampaoli outlined that Uruguay’s style will make their quarter-final a troublesome tie, online gambling news report. He said, “I believe the game for us is a final and it will be very complicated due to the opponents’ characteristics, We will play against a team which knows how to play this kind of game. These are distinct matches with a mental factor.”

He also spoke about the aerial threat Uruguay poses. He expressed, “They have played against teams with more height than us and have always scored goals because they have good headers of the ball.” He went on to emphasize the importance of Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez. He said, “Alexis has to play an integral role for the function of the Chilean attack and has to impose himself with his skill and the form he is in.”

 

ESPNFC.com: Chile and Uruguay Copa America quarterfinal will be decided in midfield

 

Chile racked up 10 goals in the group stage of the Copa, with no other team reaching five, and this should indicate that they are on a level where it is no problem for them to convert their chances. However, Chilean football expert Leonardo Veliz expressed that they weren’t as impressive in the first phase as their tally would suggest, according to gambling news.

“The Chile that qualified did not convince me,” he expressed. “Its apparent brilliance came only against an already qualified Bolivia. Those five goals against Bolivia hide a reality. There are great individual strengths… but also gaping collective weaknesses which could be exposed against opponents with more quality.”

They will have 90 minutes to seal the game before a possible penalty shoot-out against a Uruguay team that is capable of knocking out the hosts. Even without their biggest star, the banned Luis Suarez, because their strengths are the organized defending and nodding in high balls in the opposition’s box.
