Chelsea 2-0 Porto: Willian shines again as Blues cruise into the Champions League round of 16

first_imgChelsea provided manager Jose Mourinho a stay of execution as they ran out convincing winners against Porto to finish as Group G winners.Ivan Marcano scored an own goal after good work from Diego Costa in the first half to get the Blues on their way at Stamford Bridge.Willian bagged the second to wrap up the victory midway through the second half as Chelsea cruised into the last 16 of the Champions League.However, Porto, who began the evening at the top of Group G, will be playing their European football on Thursday nights in the Europa League after Dynamo Kiev beat Maccabi Tel-Aviv 1-0.Costa began with his usual fired up look and despite that usually meaning he is looking for a fight, he managed to channel it into a goal after only 12 minutes of the game.The Spaniard raced clear of the Porto defence before firing at Iker Casillas, whose save rebounded against the unfortunate Marcano before making its way to the goal.Maicon thought he had managed to retreat quickly enough to clear the ball before it crossed the line but the goal was (correctly) given by the official behind the goal.However, Costa showed his other side a few minutes later when he deliberately tripped up Casillias before immediately apologising, almost as if subconsciously looking to pick a fight.Oscar nearly doubled the lead midway through the half after a lovely move involving Costa and Willian, but the Brazilian’s shot was deflected inches wide of the upright.Seven minutes into the second half and Willian, arguably the only positive from a so-far dismal season for the Blues, doubled the lead.Costa squared the ball to Hazard, who in turn slipped in Willian before the Brazilian slammed home a low shot inside the near post.Porto finally kicked into gear and began to press, as the realisation that they were about to be eliminated from the Champions League kicked in.And they would have got a certain goal if not for Branislav Ivanovic using his head to deflect Yacine Brahimi’s shot just wide.Costa fluffed his chance to get a third and end the match as a contest but he dithered for long enough to allow Danilo to get back and recover.But it didn’t matter as Chelsea stayed in the competition – something which will relieve some of the pressure on Mourinho’s shoulders.

AMERICAN IMMIGRATION REFORM IS DIFFICULT BUT DOABLE – McHUGH

first_imgFine Gael TD for Donegal North East, Joe McHugh, has made a direct pitch to the group of American legislators who now hold the key to the futures of 50,000 Irish citizens who live in the USA without documentation.Joe McHugh TDThe Immigration Reform Bill 2013 has been passed by the Democrat controlled US Senate, and is now before the US House of Representatives, where the Republican Party holds a parliamentary majority.Boston College and the US State Department brought Deputy McHugh and eleven other policy makers from Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to Boston and Washington DC in September to contribute to the Joined-up and Crosscutting Thinking in Policy Development Programme. Whilst in Boston and Washington, Deputy McHugh met with immigration reform advocacy groups and with a number of Congressmen and American political leaders to push for visa status for Irish citizens who are undocumented in America.Deputy McHugh said: ‘The US Senate has passed the Immigration Reform 2013 Bill, which offers visa status to immigrants who live in the USA without documentation.“The legislation will become law if it is passed by the US House of Representatives and then signed by President Obama. President Obama has indicated that he will sign the Bill, so its enactment now relies on the House of Representatives, which has a Republican Party majority.“Members of the House of Representatives now hold the key to the futures of 50,000 Irish citizens who live in the USA without documentation, 12,000 of whom live in the greater Boston area. Enactment of this legislation would enable undocumented Irish citizens to return home to visit loved ones, without fear of not being able to get back into the USA’. Deputy McHugh pointed out that deportation of the 11 million people who live illegally in the USA would cost the American taxpayers $285 billion.“I emphasised this point to Congressmen whom I met in Boston and Washington DC earlier this month, including Congressman Kevin Brady (Republican, Texas), Chairperson of the Congress Joint Economic Committee, who described the immigration reform legislation as ‘difficult but doable’. I also emphasised the increased contribution that the 50,000 affected Irish immigrants would be able to make to America, were they to be granted visa status.“I will continue to engage with the legislators whom I met about this Immigration Reform Bill, and this week I have written to 41 key Republic Congressmen, to emphasise the benefits for America of enacting the new law.“I have also raised the matter in the Dáil this week with An Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore TD, Minister for Foreign Affairs & Trade, who is making a strong case for reform on behalf of the Irish Government.” AMERICAN IMMIGRATION REFORM IS DIFFICULT BUT DOABLE – McHUGH was last modified: September 27th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Joe McHughUS Immigration Reformlast_img read more
