Analysis: Four things we learned in Spain's Matchday 10******
MADRID, Oct. 25 (Xinhua) -- Real Madrid beat FC Barcelona in the 'Clasico' in the Camp Nou Stadium, while Real Sociedad remain top of LaLiga after a thrilling 2-2 draw away to reigning champions Atletico Madrid. Here are some things we learned in LaLiga this weekend.
1. Clasico shows where Real Madrid and Barca are right now
Nobody who watched the game could argue with Real Madrid's win over a Barcelona team that was high on effort, but which struggled to create chances and lacked the tactical discipline to deal with their rival's attacks.
It was enough for Real Madrid to keep their shape in midfield and defense because they knew that sooner or later, Vinicius Jr or Karim Benzema would find the space to launch a counter-attack.
That is exactly what happened as Madrid exploited the room Barca left them and Carlo Ancelotti's men took the points without doing anything really special other than tactically being better than Barca and not making mistakes.
2. Ancelotti wins tactical battle with Koeman
The biggest worry for Barca fans is that Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti won the tactical battle with Ronald Koeman, by sending out a well-balanced side that had pace in attack. Ancelotti relied on the experience of Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Casemiro in midfield and they kept their shape throughout the game, forcing Barca to look to attack using the flanks.
Koeman made the mistake of using the solid but awkward Oscar Mingueza at right back where Vinicius Jr found space throughout the first half, while Sergino Dest, who dropped deep to replace Mingueza after the break offered less than Coutinho going forward. It was only when Kun Aguero came on late in the game that Barca had a focal point in attack.
Koeman must also worry about the form of midfielder Frenkie de Jong, who was poor all game.
3. Atletico and Real Sociedad serve up a thriller
Two and a half hours after the game between Barca and Real Madrid finished, Atletico and Real Sociedad served up 90 minutes of football that was probably higher in quality than the spectacle at the Camp Nou.
Real Sociedad showed why they are top of the table as Alexander Isak and Alexander Sorloth led a display of attacking football that tore Atletico to shreds, but once Joao Tomas set up Luis Suarez to pull a goal back in the 61st minute, Atletico were on the front foot and equalized with a Suarez penalty to set up a frantic last 15 minutes.
After watching the 'Clasico' it was the sort of match that makes you think that this year's title could also be destined for a side other than the 'big two.'
4. The VAR shows its worth
The VAR has been much criticized since it was brought into use, but this weekend showed that it can correct bad decisions.
In the first instance, the VAR called the referee's attention to Alberto Moreno's foul on Unai Vencedor (one nobody saw in the moment it happened) and the resulting penalty gave Athletic Club Bilbao a 2-1 win over Villarreal.
Villarreal coach Unai Emery wasn't happy about the decision, but there is no doubt that it was a foul and therefore a penalty.
The second decision saw the VAR advise that Mikel Merino had caught Luis Suarez with a late challenge in the Wanda Metropolitano and Suarez's spot-kick earned his side a point.
Sometimes the VAR is only discussed if there are mistakes, correct decisions also need highlighting. Enditem
Chinese Kung Fu gains popularity in Africa******
Chinese martial arts, or Kung Fu, conjures up an image of the iconic movie star Bruce Lee, whose superb fighting skills were popularized throughout the world.。
Over the years, Africa has witnessed the making of several Bruce Lee-wannabes with wushu, the Mandarin-language term for martial arts, which have become popular across the continent.。
Students of the martial arts believe that Chinese Kung Fu promotes healthy living.。
"Practicing Chinese Kung Fu, not only builds discipline and respect, it makes you feel healthy and fit," said Emile Rukundo, vice president of the Rwandan Chinwoo Wushu Kung Fu Academy.。
The academy started in 2017 and has been receiving Kung Fu teachers from China. About 50 people, including young people, are trained in Kung Fu at the school.。
"Kung Fu has become a popular sport in Rwanda, particularly among school-age children. They find it interesting because it keeps their body in shape, and it teaches them self-defense and self-control," said Rukundo.。
According to Rukundo, the Confucius Institute at the University of Rwanda and the Chinese Embassy in Rwanda have supported the academy through organizing Kung Fu competitions, which have motivated young Rwandans to learn Kung Fu.。
"Chinese martial arts teach an excellent way of life," said Dawit Terefe, an Ethiopian Chinese martial arts instructor, adding that the sport helps people become strong, healthy, stay in good shape and develop excellent concentration.。
Terefe added that Chinese martial arts are lifetime physical exercises and are performed with balanced movements between the legs and hands, making them preferable to other exercises.。
"The promotion of the Chinese martial arts feature prominently in the 2021 government's sports development strategy," said John Mapepele, a senior communications officer with the Tanzanian Ministry of Culture, Arts and Sports.。
According to Mapepele, Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu Hassan has directed the ministry to ensure that Chinese martial arts is incorporated in the country's sports and culture development plans.。
"The government of Tanzania is giving much support to Chinese martial arts which are attracting tens of thousands of Tanzanians, especially the youth," Mapepele told Xinhua at the inaugural Tanzania women sports festival dubbed Tanzanite in September, where Kung Fu was featured by young Tanzanian girls aged 10 to 14 years old.。
"Tens of hundreds of visitors come here to watch the girls showing their prowess in Kung Fu," said Athuman Begeja, a 31-year-old Kung Fu teacher at Begeja Wushu Club located in Ilala District in Dar es Salaam.。
Begeja said during the three-day festival his club received over 100 inquiries from girls who want to join and train in Kung Fu.。
Kung Fu goes viral。
The Kung Fu frenzy is sweeping the continent thanks to the friendly relations between China and Africa, cemented through the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation and the Belt and Road Initiative, among others.。
Humphrey Moshi, a professor of economics at state-run University of Dar es Salaam and Director of the Center for Chinese Studies in Tanzania, told Xinhua in a recent interview that the relationship between China and Africa has become stronger since the establishment of the forum.。
"We have seen tangible improvement in sectors ranging from agriculture and communications, construction, manufacturing, culture, sports and games, and people to people exchanges," said Moshi.。
The number of Kung Fu clubs in Rwanda organized under the Rwanda Kung-fu Wushu Federation has been growing in recent years, and the total stands at 31 this year, with over 2,000 registered members.。
Also, according to a recent report by the Ethiopian Martial Arts Federation, there are over 800 martial arts training centers across Ethiopia, Africa's second-most populous nation.。
Among them, 60 are found in Addis Ababa and each appears to offer martial arts training for about 70 students each season, and a Wushu club exists in every small town in Ethiopia, the report indicated.。
The Chinese martial arts are winning the hearts and souls of the Ethiopian youth, Terefe said.。
