Muteba Kidiaba bumhop

The African Cup of Nations is only two days old but if the rest of the tournament features a better goal celebration than this then we’ll eat our novelty vuvuzela.

The clip comes from Sunday’s 2-2 draw between Ghana and DR Congo. The latter were 2-1 down when Dieumerci Mbokani was dragged down in the box and awarded a penalty in the 69th minute.

The Belgian-based striker took the spot kick himself to level the game before busting out a natty dancing celebration with his team-mates.

The real action was at the other end, though, where keeper Robert Kidiaba was performing a.. Well, just see for yourself:

The Congoloese goalie is well known for his, er, bummy hop celebration – actually thought to represent riding an imaginary horse – as the clip below attests. Consider the gauntlet well and truly thrown down!

The desperate search for 23-year-old Belgian hiker missing in Nepal for ten days came to a gruesome end when her decapitated body was found in the Himalayan Mountains.

Debbie Maveau was badly decomposed, but investigators couldn’t miss the sight of her head 13 inches away from her body, discovered the near a hiking trail in Langtang National Park, Agence France-Presse reports.

She is only the latest in a string of assaults and disappearances of young women hiking alone in the rugged mountains along the Chinese border.

Debbie Maveau

Mystery: Debbie Maveau, 23, was neither robbed nor raped before she was brutally murdered, according to authorities

The violence led the US State Department to issue a travel warning earlier this year and advise Americans not to hike the rugged terrain alone.

Nepalese police say they are investigating Maveau’s death as a murder, but that few people are cooperating.

‘Everyone in the area says they have not seen her,’ local inspector Bhakta Sunuwar told AFP.

Even on Miss Maveau’s badly-decomposed corpse, police said the panties were still intact, so they don’t believe rape was a motive.

She also still had her camera and about $100 worth of Nepalese rupees on her, so authorities also ruled out robbery.

HimalayasDanger: The US State Department has warned Americans not to hike Nepal alone in light of the attacks on tourists in recent months

The body was discovered June 14 after local villagers tipped off authorities.

Miss Maveau set on a six-day hike to Gosaikund, a lake with deep significance to Hindus, on May 31.

She was expected to return to Belgium June 9, but never arrived in her home country.

Lena Sessions, 23, an American, was hiking alone in the area in in December in Langtang when a knife-wielding man threatened to rape and kill her, though she was able to escape.

A week earlier a South Korean woman was assaulted, as well.

Two years ago, University of Colorado student Aubrey Caroline Sacco disappeared in the same area. She has never been found.

Saturday 2 June 2012               14.17 EDT

Given that most people feel the present Belgium side are unlucky not to be involved in Poland and Ukraine this summer, and that there are unlikely to be 16 better sides competing at Euro 2012, this was really quite encouraging from England. There were plenty of royal lookalikes in the crowd for the cameras and giant screens to pick out before kick-off, and though not exactly majestic – they played too much of the game without the ball – England looked more like the real thing.

People will say it is unwise to read too much into eve-of-tournament friendlies, yet critics would have been doing exactly that had Roy Hodgson’s team lost. Instead, they coped quite admirably, scoring a fine goal and defending capably against one of Europe’s most fluid attacking lineups. There may be greater challenges ahead, and perhaps more motivated opponents, but this was a much more composed performance than last Saturday’s against Norway and, with two wins in his first week, Hodgson and his players can travel to central Europe in good heart.

“I can’t say I’m confident that everything is in place, there’s still a lot of work to do on our use of the ball in offensive situations, but I’m pretty happy with the defensive shape,” the England manager said. “I’m not prepared to be too critical at this stage anyway. The players are working well and I am more than satisfied with what I have seen.”

Belgium lost Vincent Kompany to a strain in the warm-up but otherwise were at full strength and looking conspicuously comfortable in possession. With Moussa Dembélé playing deep and Eden Hazard in a forward position, they stroked the ball around carefully for the first five minutes, during which England found it difficult to get a touch, though once Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain got his first run he brought the crowd to its feet by skipping past the first defender. Oxlade-Chamberlain had an excellent chance of opening the scoring moments later, indeed will never get a better chance of getting his England career off to a dream start, but when James Milner’s cut-back from the right came through to him just asking to be hit at goal, he made a dreadful mess of even managing a shot at all. If that suggested nerves, the Arsenal player hit a much sweeter drive with his next chance, after Danny Welbeck had rolled a pass back from the left. The shot flew narrowly wide, but at least it was cleanly hit, and it meant England could claim the first real attempt on goal.

The visitors had the ball in Joe Hart’s net just before the mid-point of the first half, though Dries Mertens’s cheeky effort was correctly ruled out for a blatant push on Gary Cahill. The Danish referee instantly produced a yellow card for the Belgian, which initially seemed harsh but was more than justified by the fact that Mertens’s illegal challenge ended Cahill’s participation. Mertens had not just pushed Cahill out of the way, his shove in the back propelled the defender straight into Hart, and as neither of the England players was expecting or braced for a collision, the consequences could have been serious. As it was, Cahill had to leave the field after apparently losing a tooth, with Joleon Lescott coming on in his place.

Undeterred, Mertens made an outrageous meal of a foul by Glen Johnson to make sure a free-kick was awarded just before the half hour, and when the ball was crossed into the England area, Johnson had to be quick to clear as Marouane Fellaini was lining up a shot from close range. The game became scrappy before the interval, with Scott Parker picking up a booking for an unnecessary foul on Jan Vertonghen, who may well be lining up alongside him at White Hart Lane next season, and Ashley Cole in trouble for chasing Hazard a long way before clipping his ankle.

None of that seemed to matter when England took the lead 10 minutes before the break through a delightfully confident finish by Welbeck. Cool though the striker was in chipping the ball over Simon Mignolet, he deserves extra credit for helping initiate the attacking opportunity. It was Welbeck and Steven Gerrard who ganged up on Dembélé to force him to surrender possession in a dangerous area of his own half, after which the Manchester United forward intelligently ran on to provide a target for Ashley Young, who was able to oblige with an instant and precise through-ball.

With Belgium’s attacking threat subsiding alarmingly, England could even have been further ahead at the interval. After Milner worked hard to bring a high ball down and keep it in play, Gerrard had two shots in quick succession blocked on the six-yard line, first by Timmy Simons then by Guillaume Gillet.

Wayne Rooney came on for the last half hour, presumably to keep up his match fitness, though he found little to do apart from running around. Even before the substitutions began in earnest, England had taken their foot off the attacking pedal, content to hold ground in midfield and let Belgium try the occasional shot. Hart had second-half saves to make from Mertens, the disappointingly quiet Hazard and a scuffed shot by Fellaini, yet was never properly stretched. Romelu Lukaku offered a more direct threat when he came on for the last 20 minutes, and on one occasion was almost casually played into space near the penalty spot by his new team-mate Hazard, only to see his shot expertly blocked by an old colleague in Cole.

The nearest Belgium came to scoring was a rasping drive by Gillet that flicked off the outside of Hart’s post without the goalkeeper knowing much about it, but even that was a speculative effort, from 25 yards out. As if stung out of inertia, England went up the field and hit the post too, substitutes Theo Walcott and Jermain Defoe combining for the latter to shoot across Mignolet from a narrow angle. Cole hit the side netting before the end and Fellaini finally forced a sharp save from Hart in stoppage-time, but the score remained unaltered. “You only sing when you’re winning,” the surprisingly large contingent of Belgian fans trilled in jest at the end. At this time of year, don’t knock it.

June 1, 2012

David Goffin looks like a boy in a sport increasingly populated by older men. But he is in elite, much more experienced company now in the Round of 16 of the French Open.

Goffin, a slender and reserved 21-year-old Belgian with pale blue eyes, actually lost in the final round of the qualifying tournament. But he was given a spot in the main draw as a “lucky loser” and has advanced further than any men’s lucky loser in this tournament in 34 years.

“He’s like a young Andre Agassi; he takes the ball so early; he’s like a little genius,” said Wojtek Fibak, the former top-10 player and longtime coach, after watching Goffin thwart his latest elder, the Polish veteran Lukasz Kubot, 7-6, 7-5, 6-1.

Goffin, ranked just 109th for the moment, has a long road ahead if he wants to belong in the same company as champions like Agassi. But he will be in such company on Sunday.

Playing in his first Grand Slam tournament, Goffin will face Roger Federer, who has won more of them than any man and who was Goffin’s idol when he was growing up hitting balls against the garage door until dinner time.

“I had his photos and posters in my room,” said Goffin, who nonetheless plays with a two-handed backhand instead of a one-hander like Federer. “Since I was very young, I watched him play on television. For me, for a long time, he plays near-perfect tennis, with perfect technique. And I also like him in human terms.”

Federer, the winner of 16 major singles titles, is seeded third this year and defeated Nicolas Mahut of France, 6-3, 4-6, 6-2, 7-5, producing plenty of flashy tennis but also dropping yet another set to a player he might have expected to handle in straight sets.

Informed that Goffin considered him his idol, Federer, who will turn 31 in August, looked slightly sheepish. “Not the first time it happens,” Federer said. “It’s strange; I tell you that. It’s weird. It’s strange. It’s everything you can imagine. I’m happy to hear it, though.”

It was a day of awkward questions for Federer. His longtime agent, Tony Godsick, has declined to renew his contract with International Management Group. The company, one of the most powerful in sport and entertainment, later confirmed that it no longer represented Federer.

It remains unclear precisely what this means for Federer, who left IMG once before, in 2003, after his former agent Bill Ryan departed the company, but resumed working with it in 2005.

What is increasingly clear is that Federer will have to play outstanding tennis to have a crack at a second French Open title. His principal rivals, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, are in sparkling form. Nadal, the six-time champion who is in the opposite half of the draw, has lost just nine games in his first two matches and will play Saturday against the Argentine qualifier Eduardo Schwank.

Djokovic, the No. 1 seed who could meet Federer in the semifinals, has yet to drop a set. Djokovic advanced to a fourth-round match with Andreas Seppi of Italy by beating sunset as well as the French qualifier Nicolas Devilder, 6-1, 6-2, 6-2, as darkness fell.

At a slender 5 feet 11 inches, Goffin looks small compared to most of the bigger, older men in the main draw. He is not a big server, but he reads the game beautifully and can produce power and surprise off the ground from all sorts of angles and positions. Off the court, he is soft-spoken and looked much more nervous in the interview room than against Kubot.

“I’m timid,” Goffin said, “but not on the court, at least, I try not to be.”

Kubot, a net rusher, grew so weary of seeing his deep volleys and approach shots get transformed into gold by Goffin’s deft hands that he watched one winner fly by late in the third set. He stared long and hard at Goffin, and then spat in his direction. The spittle came nowhere near the young Belgian, but Kubot was given a code violation by the chair umpire and was booed long and hard by the primarily Belgian crowd.

Belgians, particularly French-speaking Belgians like Goffin, often view the French Open as the closest they can get to their own Grand Slam tournament. They have had plenty to cheer in recent years with Justine Henin winning the women’s title four times. But Henin has retired, here only as a television commentator, and the Belgians packed into Court 7 to watch their new prospect.

Goffin, who developed his game in the same Belgian training center in Mons where Henin once trained, has defeated deeply experienced players in grueling duels in every round here and will break into the top 100 after the tournament. He began with a five-set upset of the 33-year-old Radek Stepanek, the 23rd seed. Next, he prevailed in five more sets in a two-day match with Arnaud Clément, the 34-year-old Frenchman playing in his final French Open. After beating the 30-year-old Kubot, here comes the 30-year-old Federer.

Goffin, the youngest man left in singles, crossed Federer’s path in the locker room earlier in the tournament but did not dare to introduce himself.

“He’s there with his family, I don’t want to run after him or anything,” Goffin said. “And I don’t know what I could say to him except bonjour. We’ll see after the match on Sunday whether we talk or not.”
