Pulwama attack signals shift in Pak strategy

EVERY major terrorist attack in India, it seems, unleashes a flood of silliness.The utter foolishness of stock political responses — ‘dastardly act’, ‘cowardly attack’, ‘munh-tod jawab’, boastful threats of vengeance — has, in recent years, been compounded by TV anchors who play at being Generals, ‘gaming’ retaliatory strikes and threatening Pakistan with unlikely devastation. Within this theatre of the absurd is the constant harping on novelty — the idea that a new tactic or terror modus operandi has suddenly manifested itself in the latest outrage.

Argentina, Croatia qualify for Round 16

Agartala, June 28,2018: A late goal from Marcos Rojo gave Argentina a 2-1 triumph over Nigeria in their final Group D match here on Tuesday as the two-time champions entered the FIFA World Cup pre-quarterfinals.

At Rostov, Croatia defeated Iceland 2-1 to go into the knockout rounds of the 2018 FIFA World Cup as the top team in Group D. Milan Badelj (53rd) and Ivan Perisic (90th) scored for Croatia.

Rojo scored the winner for Argentina in the 86th minute after Victor Moses’ penalty conversion in the 51st minute had cancelled out Lionel Messi’s strike in the 14th minute.

Following the win, Argentina have four points in total and they are second in the table, behind Croatia, who have nine points. The other two teams in the group, Nigeria (three points) and Iceland (one point) have crashed out of the tournament.

Argentina, who were on the brink of elimination after playing a draw against Iceland before a disastrous 0-3 defeat to Croatia in their first two matches, started the match against Nigeria with one point in their bag. They knew that despite a win against Nigeria, who were also in contention, their spot in the Round-of-16 is not guaranteed as Croatia, who had already qualified, played Iceland.

It took only 14 minutes for the Argentines to break the deadlock. Messi controlled with his thigh a long-range aerial ball from the centre of the pitch from Ever Banega before barging into the box and firing to the left corner of the net despite being pushed towards the right side by Kenneth Omeruo. Banega, who was not there in the starting XIs so far, had already repaid Sampaoli’s faith.

Both sides didn’t create a lot of chances during the rest of time in the first half, with Nigeria hardly testing Argentinian goalkeeper Franco Armani, who as brought into the playing XI in place of Willy Caballero.

Four minutes into the second half, Nigeria were awarded a penalty after veteran holding midfielder Mascherano was penalised for holding Balogun inside the box while defending a corner. Chelsea winger Moses fired the spot-kick to the left as Armani dived to the wrong side.

Argentina lacked control in the middle of the pitch and Nigeria’s confidence got higher and higher as they tested the former’s resolves with several incursions inside the box.

Nigeria’s hopes fizzled in the 87th minute when Gabriel Mercado galloped down the right flank and sent a cross to the middle of the box. Rojo met the cross on the volley as his right-footed strike sent the ball to the right corner of the net to give Argentina the 2-1 lead.

Afterwards, Argentina, somehow, managed to hand on to their lead as they secured a spot in the second round.

Meanwhile, Croatia beat Iceland 2-1 to progress into the knockout rounds after goals from Milan Badelj (53rd) and Ivan Perisic (90th). Gylfi Sigurdsson had rekindled some momentary hopes for Iceland when he converted a penalty in the 76th minute. Croatia finished the group stage with nine points, having won all their three matches. Iceland finished at the bottom of the group with one point. It was a disappointing end to their campaign, which had started with a lot of promise when they held formidable Argentina 1-1 in their opening match.
