Al Ain came from behind to beat Team Wellington in dramatic fashion in the opening game of the FIFA Club World Cup.

Zoran Mamić’s side looked to be heading out of the competition after Mario Barcia, Aaron Clapham and Mario Ilich gave the New Zealand outfit a 3-0 lead.

However, Tsukasa Shiotani gave the hosts hope by cutting the deficit on the stroke of half-time.

Tongo Doumbia then found the net in the 49th minute before Marcus Berg’s late strike levelled matters.

Mohamed Abdulrahman was sent-off towards the end of extra time before goalkeeper Khalid Eisa became the penalty-shootout hero for Al Ain, saving Justin Gulley’s effort as the UAE side won 4-3 to progess to the next round.

Dubai is actively working towards making sports a way of life in the emirate.

That’s the message from His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Sports Council, speaking on the sidelines of an award ceremony to honour educational institutions that have made a mark in the field of sports.

Dubai English Speaking School was crowned the winner of the inaugural Hamdan Bin Mohammed Order of Merit for Sports Education School.

The award was open to all public and private schools in Dubai. Their evaluation was based on four major criteria: infrastructure, health education, sports practice and the efficiency and effectiveness of school management.

“We have several programmes geared towards motivating individuals and institutions to embrace a physically active lifestyle, and this Order of Merit is one such initiative that focuses on schools and aims to spread health and happiness among school children through the practice of sports. These children are the future of our nation and it is imperative we provide them with a strong foundation,” Sheikh Hamdan said.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey defended a series of tweets about his recent meditation retreat in Myanmar as it failed to mention the plight of Rohingyas.

He said he was “aware of the human rights atrocities and suffering in Myanmar” and did not “intend to diminish by not raising the issue, but could have acknowledged that I don’t know enough and need to learn more”.

Dorsey added that his visit was “purely personal”.

According to the stats released by the UN, more than 730,000 Rohingya fled a sweeping army crackdown in Myanmar’s Rakhine state in 2017.
