Matildas maul Thailand in Olympic qualifier thanks to van Egmond hat-trick


Campbelltown 2560

Matildas stalwart Emily van Egmond has scored a maiden international hat-trick to assure Australia a berth in the final stage of Olympic qualification.

Key points:

  • Thailand’s tactics saw them park the bus and try and hit the Matildas on the counter-attack
  • Van Egmond scored two goals before half-time before adding a third in the second half
  • The Matildas play China on Thursday to decide group B

Last Friday’s assist queen turned goalscorer at Campbelltown Sports Stadium on Monday night as the Matildas mauled Thailand 6-0 in their group qualifier for Tokyo 2020.

With Chelsea superstar Sam Kerr again limited to a bench cameo, van Egmond broke the deadlock with a quick-fire double just before half-time before adding a third in the 70th minute.

The victory sets up a blockbuster clash with unbeaten China at Parramatta on Thursday night, with the winner topping group B.

Although already out of contention for a top-two finish, the Chaba Kaew frustrated Australia for almost the entire first half.

Thailand’s tactics were clear from the outset: park the bus and — if possible — hit the Matildas on the counter-attack.

That strategy almost bore fruit two years ago when they led Australia heading into added time of their Asian Cup semi-final before losing in a shootout.

Initially unfazed, the Matildas methodically worked the ball forward looking to pick Thailand apart but struggled to find their usual potency.

Defender Ellie Carpenter ran rampant down the right, teeing up last start hat-trick hero Caitlin Foord and van Egmond for half chances.

Kyah Simon, who made an emotional return in green and gold for the first time since October 2018 in Friday’s 7-0 win over Taiwan, came closest just on the half-hour mark.

But she was denied as a diving Natthakarn Chinwong slammed into the post, with the defender subbed soon after.

Her sacrifice proved in vain, as Australia’s patience was rewarded when Carpenter found van Egmond lurking at the back post for a tap-in.

With the deadlock broken, van Egmond and Carpenter combined again to double their advantage before the break.

After a limp start to the second half, head coach Ante Milicic turned to Kerr and Hayley Raso to provide a spark.

The double change worked a treat as Simon scored and van Egmond followed suit.

Seconds later, Milicic’s substitutes linked up to add a fifth as Raso tucked a low Kerr cross into the top right corner.

Simon completed her double to round out the rout as Australia soared back to the top of group B.

‘No way’ of stopping coronavirus from entering Australia, virus has no vaccine


China

Australia is ramping up airport screening of passengers arriving from China, after authorities in that country confirmed that a new strain of coronavirus has been passed from person to person, sparking fresh fears of a global epidemic.

Key points:

  • A Brisbane man who recently returned from Wuhan is being tested for the virus
  • The total number of worldwide cases of the virus is 222
  • There is no vaccine for the new virus

China’s National Health Commission said the virus, which causes pneumonia, had spread to new cities and that some medical staff had been infected by patients, the country’s official Xinhua news agency said.

What is a coronavirus?
Here’s what we know about the novel coronavirus, or 2019-nCoV, and how worried you should be.

On Tuesday morning, it was confirmed a man was in isolation in his Brisbane home as Queensland Health authorities ran tests on whether he was carrying the new strain.

The outbreak, which began in the central city of Wuhan, has now spread to other cities including the capital Beijing and Shanghai. Five new cases were confirmed in Beijing and 14 more in Guangdong province. A new case was reported in Shanghai.

The number of cases has tripled to more than 220, and three people are known to have died.

Cases have been reported in Thailand, South Korea and Japan, all involving people who had visited Wuhan.

Today Australia’s chief medical officer said the risk to Australia was low but warned that the disease had an incubation period of about a week, during which time symptoms would not be apparent.

He said stricter screening measures would apply particularly to the three flights a week that arrived in Sydney from Wuhan.

Those flights will now be met by border security and biosecurity staff as well as New South Wales Health officials.

“We’re doing some careful modelling to see if there are any other flights from China that have a high proportion of Wuhan-origin passengers, and we may consider expanding that too,” he said.

“But we have to do the analysis to find out where they come from, because there are apparently 160 flights from China a week.”

There is no vaccine for the new virus, and China’s President Xi Jinping said curbing the outbreak and saving lives was now the top priority.

“People’s lives and health should be given top priority and the spread of the outbreak should be resolutely curbed,” he was quoted as saying by state television.

Adding to the difficulties of containing the virus, hundreds of millions of Chinese people will be travelling domestically and abroad during the Lunar New Year holiday that starts this week.

Authorities around the globe, including in the United States and many Asian countries, have also stepped up screening of travellers from Wuhan.

In a series of tweets, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said chief medical officer Brendan Murphy briefed him on the coronavirus on Tuesday.

He said precautions were being taken to protect Australians, adding: “We will be raising the level of our travel advice for Wuhan City to level 2 — exercise a high degree of caution. I urge all Australians travelling to check the DFAT Smart Traveller website for specific updates.”

He said state medical workers had initiated measures to mitigate the risk of infectious people entering the country.

“We are well prepared to respond to this situation and we will continue to monitor and take action where necessary,” he added.

Specialist in infectious disease epidemics and Wellcome Trust global health charity director, Sir Jeremy Farrar, said there was a need to be vigilant.

“Wuhan is a major hub and with travel being a huge part of the fast-approaching Chinese New Year, the concern level must remain high,” he said.

“There is more to come from this outbreak.”

The virus belongs to the same family of coronaviruses as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), which killed nearly 800 people globally during a 2002-03 outbreak that also started in China.

Its symptoms include fever and difficulty in breathing, which are similar to many other respiratory diseases and pose complications for screening efforts.

Virus spreads beyond China’s borders

Overnight South Korea confirmed its first case, a 35-year-old Chinese national who had travelled from Wuhan, the fourth patient reported outside China.

Thailand has reported two confirmed cases of the virus, both of whom were Chinese tourists from Wuhan.

Japan also confirmed one case of a Japanese citizen who visited Wuhan.

A report by London Imperial College’s MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis estimated that by January 12 there were 1,723 cases in Wuhan City with onset of related symptoms. Chinese health authorities have not commented directly on the report.

“This outbreak is extremely concerning. Uncertainty and gaps remain, but it is now clear that there is person-to-person transmission,” Sir Jeremy said.

The World Health Organisation said on Monday that “an animal source” appeared most likely to be the primary source of the outbreak and that some “limited human-to-human transmission” occurred between close contacts.

Shares in pharmaceutical firms and mask makers in China surged because of the outbreak.

“Who knows how many people who have been to Wuhan may be unaware that they have already been infected?,” said one commentator on Chinese social media platform Weibo

Many of the initial cases of the coronavirus were linked to a seafood market in Wuhan, which has been closed as authorities investigate.

The state-run Global Times newspaper said in an editorial the Government needed to disclose all information and not repeat the mistakes made with SARS.

Chinese officials covered up the SARS outbreak for weeks before a growing death toll and rumours forced them to reveal the epidemic.

“We have made great strides in medicine, social affairs management and public opinion since 2003,” the editorial said.

“Concealment would be a serious blow to the government’s credibility and might trigger greater social panic.”

Thailand finds second case of new Chinese virus, authorities confident spread can be contained


Thailand

Thailand has found a second case of a new Chinese coronavirus, authorities said on Friday as they ramped up checks on Chinese visitors, nearly a million of whom are expected for Lunar New Year holidays next week.

Key points:

  • Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that can cause infections, from the common cold to SARS
  • Thailand’s Health Minister said, “We’re fully alert”.
  • Japan has also reported one case of the infection

The latest patient is from China’s central city of Wuhan, which has reported 41 cases of pneumonia potentially linked to the new type of virus, with two deaths, as hospitals worldwide scramble to guard against any spread.

The 74-year-old woman, quarantined since arriving in Thailand on Monday, was found to be infected, health officials said.

“We’re very confident that we can control the spread of this kind of disease,” Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul told reporters, adding that the situation was under control and there was no outbreak in Thailand. “We’re fully alert.”

The two Chinese patients were now safe but needed to go through a few more procedures before Thai authorities could let them return home, he added.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that can cause infections ranging from the common cold to severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).

Thailand, which is on high alert ahead of the Lunar New Year holidays, said on Monday it had found a 61-year-old Chinese woman carrying a strain of the coronavirus, the first time it was detected outside China.

Japan reported its first case of the infection on Thursday after a Japanese man returned from visiting Wuhan, known for its picturesque lakes.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has said the virus could spread and warned hospitals about it.

Thai health officials have stepped up monitoring at four airports receiving daily flights from Wuhan — Suvarnabhumi, Don Muang, Chiang Mai and Phuket — and others that receive charter flights from the Chinese city.

Since January 3, Thailand has screened 13,624 passengers.

Health officials also asked Thai AirAsia and China Southern Airlines, which run direct daily flights from Wuhan, to halt boarding by those suffering from high fever and respiratory symptoms and reschedule their flights.

slowthai – North Nights


[Verse 1]
Madness
From a boy been chased by badness
Mad
I was like rah, nah, nah
Suck your mum like your dad
Back in the day when I jumped cabs
I got blacklisted
Couldn’t get one from my gaff
But it’s calm, it’s cool, it’s cold, it’s nice
When it snows I’m ghost
Cause I’m dressed in white
Roll round my ends screaming North Nights (double N!)
Roll round my ends and they know slowthai
Slay
Every one knows about slay
When I roll in, everybody goes “I know him”
Just cause they know my name
Bae
When I draw my Beyblade
It’s a twister, make you turn in your grave like a Rizla
Screw your face
Pain
Get jooked, complain of belly ache
No space, no caps
No one can imitate
No hoods, no hats
Like who you booking mate?
Strange
Situations elevate
Breath stinks straight, in need of Colgate
Cah only get one life
No simulator

[Chorus]
In the cold Northants gets tragic
Nights in watching Cash In The Attic
Amell the tree like cash in the attic
Hate the wet weed but I just bag it
Theresa May wanna be like Branson
Making P from airplane traffic
Theresa May wanna be like Branson
Making P from airplane traffic

[Verse 2]
Wouldn’t throw my shadow
Mewtwo, you man move like Sparrow
Tunnel vision and this tunnel too narrow
Want beef but I’m moving cattle
Woah
Want war jump out the Bora with an arrow
Cross bow and bora
I write novels like man was an author
And I pray this year is a scorcher
Woah
Pray this summer is a heater
Kick ball, school man like it’s FIFA
I’m in Thailand, bun Ibiza
Wiseman with a spliff Ribena
Woah
Slow it down the slow motion
Laugh at my pain I ain’t joking
Blood from a stone
Hands open
Blood on my hands for my bloods that are broken
Head to big, it’s swollen
Hot in the bits like Moulton
Negative life, stop moaning
Too many things I hold in
I ain’t learnt
Till my legs start floating
Disconnect everyone I don’t like
Don Perrione hype
Catch me in the club
I be slanging Snow White
Impose yourself
You might get a goodbye
Pressurise me
And get something in your eye
From a yout
The boys been a savage
Rudeboy deal with the matter
Different planet like I came from Namek
My life they can’t understand it
From a yout
The boys been a savage
Rudeboy deal with the matter
Different planet like I came from Namek
My life they can’t understand it
