FIFA U-17 World Cup: Paraguay Look for Win Against Turkey

Navi Mumbai: Assured of a pre-quarterfinal spot, Paraguay’s unbeaten team would aim to end its group B engagements on a perfect note when it takes on a struggling Turkey in the FIFA Under-17 World Cup. After defeating Mali 3-2 and New Zealand 4-2, the South American team, one of the favourites to lift the title, will be looking to dominate Turkey.

Paraguay have displayed an attacking game in both the games, with their strikers and in-form players Anibal Voga and Leonardo Sanchez, netting the ball at all the right times. But their coach Gustavo Morinigo would expect that his boys are not over-enthusiastic and defend well.

Paraguay’s defence was breached twice by African under-17 champions Mali in the opening game and their coach has stated that this was an area which needed to be worked on.

“I am very concerned with the defence and I realise that we are risking too much and are open. My strikers, I know, can score goals. For the next game, we need to work more on our defence and tactics,” Morinigo told reporters after the game against Kiwis.

But overall, the South American team has been unstoppable and with their berth confirmed in the next round, they would be eager to finish the league engagements on a high.

Turkey, on the other hand, will be looking to register their first win and keep their slim chances alive in the tournament.

After being beaten 3-0 by Mali, Turkey need to regroup themselves but will have a stiff task in hand. Their coach has admitted that the players from opposition teams are physically well-built and in this game, this factor will again play a crucial role.

Teams (from): Paraguay: Diego Huesca, Jesus Rolon, Roberto Fernandez, Pedro Alvarez, Alexis Duarte, Braian Ojeda, Antonio Galeano, Stevens Gomez, Fernando Romero, Julio Baez, Leonardo Sanchez, Angel Roa, Marcelo Rolon, Victor Villasanti, Luis Zarate, Anibal Vega, Fernando Cardozo, Blas Armoa, Jonathan Martinez, Giovanni Bogado, Alan Rodriguez.
Turkey: Berke Ozer, Emirhan Civelek, Melih Gokcimen, Sahan Akyuz, Ozan Kabak, Sefa Akgun, Ahmed Kutucu, Kerem Kesgin, Malik Karaahmet, Atalay Babachan, Recep Gul, Eren Bilen, Ismail Cokcalis, Umut Gunes, Yunus Akgun, Sezer Taskolu, Egehan Gok, Abdussamed Karnucu, Berk Cetin, Embiya Ayyildiz, Ozan Oruc.

    OnePlus Rocked by Card Fraud Claims

    OnePlus has stopped accepting credit cards in its web store after customer card detail leak claims.

    (CCM) — Chinese smartphone-maker OnePlus has been forced to stop selling its products using credit card payments, the BBC is reporting.

    This follows claims by multiple customers that fraudulent charges have been made to their credit cards after using them to pay for goods at OnePlus’s online store at oneplus.net. More than 200 people from different countries say that their cards have racked up unauthorized charges of between $50 and $3,000 after making OnePlus purchases, although in some cases their banks’ or card processors’ security systems flagged the charges as suspicious and stopped the payments.

    The company has launched an investigation, but says that it does not carry out card processing itself or store credit card information. Instead it uses a third-party company to carry out the payment processing on its behalf.

    Customers can still buy phones and accessories from the OnePlus online store using Paypal while the credit card investigation continues, and other secure ways to pay may be introduced in the near future, according to the BBC.

    OnePlus offers high-powered smartphones which compete with Samsung’s Galaxy and Apple’s iPhone, at a significantly lower price. In November 2017 the company launched its flagship OnePlus 5T handset featuring a 6-inch screen, a powerful Qualcomm 835 processor, and dual 16 and 20 megapixel rear cameras, priced from $499.
