Joel Campbell made his first appearance for his new team Sporting CP when he came off the bench in the 69th minute to take on Porto on Sunday.

He had a successful pre-season with his owner club Arsenal after scoring three times in their five preseason friendly games and was considered fit enough to take part in this encounter. He came on to replace Gelson Martins and had a positive impact on the game, helping them to maintain their 2–1 lead. After beating Porto, they now stand first in the league at nine points having won all three matches so far.

On August 21 Arsenal announced they have let their Costa Rican forward, 24 year old Joel Campbell to leave on a loan spell to Portuguese club Sporting CP for the season 2016-17. Apart from participating in Premeira Liga where they came second last season behind Benfica he’s also expected to take part in the elite European club championship UEFA Champions League.

Joel had joined Arsenal in 2011 but didn’t meet the criteria for attaining a work permit to play in England. Consequently he was loaned out the next three years to FC Lorient, France, Real Betis, Spain and Olympiakos, Greece. After an impressive performance for his country in the World Cup 2014, he was retained in the Arsenal squad but despite making a few starts struggled to get sufficient opportunities and was shipped again to Villarreal, Spain in January, 2015.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has often praised Campbell for his technical qualities, fighting attitude and his defensive work but both he and the player felt at 24, he needed more playtime to develop further and felt the best way to do that was to go out on loan again. This is his fifth loan spell away from Arsenal since joining them in 2011.

Yesterday, Poland-born German football player and Galatasaray S.K. forward Lukas Podolski announced retirement from international football.

Debuting internationally in 2004, Podolski has won 129 international caps, Germany’s third all time most capped player after Lothar Matthäus and Miroslav Klose. 31-year-old Lukas Podolski is the third top-scorer for Germany, netting 48 goals.

Four years ago, Podolski became the youngest player to make 100 international appearances for Germany aged 27 years 13 days. He was part of the German squad for the UEFA Euro 2016 tournament in France making his final appearance for Germany against Slovakia which was his seventh major tournament.

Podolski won the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Podolski was awarded Best Young Player in the 2006 FIFA World Cup, hosted in Germany. Podolski said, “I feel like my focus has shifted […] My time is over […] I arrived in Germany as a two-year-old boy with basically only a football under my arm and am now a world champion. That is more than I could ever have dreamt of.”

German football manager Joachim Löw said, “Just like Basti Bastian Schweinsteiger, Lukas was always a constant for me. We have always relied on him and still do to this day. He is a role model in terms of his professionalism and attitude, and he always puts the team’s success ahead of anything else.”((de)).

Podolski was the fifth player to retire from Germany’s 2014 World Cup squad. Last month, German captain Bastian Schweinsteiger announced retirement from international football. Other players who left the German national squad after winning the World Cup are Philipp Lahm, Miroslav Klose, and Per Mertesacker.

The Italian Interior Ministry has collaborated with the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) to produce an on- and offline media campaign aimed at discouraging refugees from entering Europe. The campaign, titled “Aware Migrants”, was launched Thursday, exposing high levels of violence and danger in transit, and discouraging migrants from attempting passage through illegal trafficking.

The 1.5million campaign features videos on social media to target the 16–35 age demographic, believed to be most likely to attempt the move. The videos are to include testimonials from more than 150 refugees, citing rape, child abuse, and exposure as potential threats. Each video concludes with the phrase “Be aware, brother” or “Be aware, sister”. This slogan is also thematic in Malian musician’s Rokia Traoré‘s official campaign song: “Be aware brother, be aware sister”.

Italy’s Interior Minister, Angelino Alfano, said they will still welcome refugees fleeing war, but that others may be declined. Recent large numbers of arrivals and migrant deaths has been cited as the reason behind the campaign, with the Interior Ministry recording over 70,000 refugees arriving in Italy in the first half of 2016. Federico Soda, the Director of the IOM Coordination Office for the Mediterranean, asserts most of those migrants did not expect the level of danger involved in transit.

Migrants are invited to share their own experiences in response to the videos posted on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, in order to spread the warning to other potential migrants.

The battle in the city of Aleppo, Northern Syria, in the Bani Zeid district, has brought victory to the Syrian Arab Army. This ends severe fighting, where missiles and mortar fire have killed and injured civilians and destroyed buildings in the crossfire. Hundreds of Takfiri militants are surrendering or fleeing, while radio interceptions reveal a humiliated and defeated enemy.

Similarly, fierce fighting in northern and southern Aleppo (Handarat, Tal Eis, Khan Touman, Zitan, and Al-Zahra in Hama districts) is also resulting in militants’ defeat. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the army has organised three escape corridors for civilians fleeing Aleppo, providing safe-haven and humanitarian assistance once they reach safety. The joint Syrian-Russian humanitarian operation has delivered 14 metric tons to the checkpoints: consisting of food, medicine, and clothing.

Earlier this week, military sources confirmed that Syrian Army units were also defeating Takfiri militants in the city of Douma, the main victory declared last Thursday. Currently, the Syrian Arab Army are cleaning up and regaining control of the city, after they killed a platoon of extremists and injured dozens more.

Any remaining enemy in the area has reportedly fled to nearby farms. A military source told reporters that the Syrian Arab Army, supported by the Syrian Air Force, advanced into the town of Housh al-Farah to repel militants.

The military source also added this defeat helps smooth the path for capturing or eliminating remaining extremists in Tal al-Kurdi. The army has now made more advances in Housh al-Farah from the two sides of Brigade 39 and al-Moqtabal regions.

Yesterday, Italian football club Juventus F.C. announced signing of Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuaín from their rival club S.S.C. Napoli. 28-year-old Higuaín signed a five-year contract with the Old Lady for a Italian record transfer fee of €90 million.

Image: Илья Хохлов.

Debuting at the age of 17 in 2005, Higuaín has made 329 league appearances and scored 191 goals. He joined Spanish capital club Real Madrid in 2006. Spending six-and-half seasons with Los Blancos, Higuaín has won the La Liga title there.

Higuaín — nicknamed Pipita — joined Napoli in 2013. While there he broke the goal scoring record set by Gunnar Nordahl of the Italian Serie A, netting 36 goals in 35 appearances. He helped Napoli qualify for the UEFA Champions League as the club finished second in the league.

In remarks to Gazetta World following Higuaín’s agreement to the contract, AS Roma captain Francesco Totti said, “Footballers today are a bit like nomads[…] They follow money and not their hearts.” 40-year-old Totti has played 25 years for Roma, signing a one-year contract extention last month.

Napoli’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis said, “Some believe that talking of a betrayal is an exaggeration, but I think differently. In this move there is the full meaning of a betrayal, which includes ingratitude.”((it))

Former Agrentine captain and Napoli legend Diego Maradona said, “This Higuain affair is hurting me because he is going to a direct rival like Juventus. But we cannot blame the player either. A player has a responsibility to himself and it is those fat cats of business that are grinning the most in this case. Nobody thinks of the fan.”((es))

Higuaín has been assigned the number 9 jersey.
