Harry Redknapp has warned Roy Hodgson that anything less than reaching the semi-finals of Euro 2016 will be a failure for England.The Three Lions have endured disappointing early exits in their previous two tournaments under Hodgson but Redknapp reckons they have the talent within the current squad to go all the way in France this summer.The former Tottenham and West Ham boss told talkSPORT: “We have got some outstanding young players in the country at the moment.“I look around at the rest of Europe and I don’t see any great teams. Spain, Italy, are not what they were, Belgium have got great players on paper but don’t seem to produce it as a team.“I think we have got as good a chance as anybody this year. I will be disappointed if we don’t make at least the semi-finals.”Redknapp believes the future is exciting for England with an array of talented young players at Hodgson’s disposal.Two of the country’s best prospects, Dele Alli and Ross Barkley, look to be fighting for one midfield spot at Euro 2016 but Redknapp claims they should BOTH be in the starting XI.“They are two fantastic young players – absolutely top class,” he said.“I would love to see the pair of them playing at the Euros this summer together, that is how good they are.”“I couldn’t make up my mind between the two of them. They are two big, big players for the next ten years hopefully.”
By FFWPU Belgium, Philippe and Yoko Jacques: This documentary about the Blessing event on February 2015 Blessing was broadcasted on Flemish Belgian TV channel EEN on 1 February 2016, as part of a series «Via Annemie», now in its 3rd season. This series is watched by over 1m people in Belgium and the Netherlands.We were invited to watch the program at the home of documentary maker and journalist Annemie Struyf. Together with us were Annemie’s family and advertising director Leentje Lybaert.The documentary covers the Blessing at Cheong Pyeong last year. Annemie and a team of 5 people spent about 10 days in Korea to film the Blessing, the preparations and several testimonies. They returned to Belgium with great enthusiasm and plenty of footage. It was quite a challenge for them to fit all footage into a 46 minutes program. (Above)As soon as the television broadcast was over, many messages started coming in on our mobiles. Annemie received much appraisal and many congratulations. Some stated clearly that they found it such a good idea to match people from different races and nations to establish peace on earth.We also received positive reactions from friends and Ambassadors for Peace. It was quite an exciting moment for us to share all those nice reactions that were coming in one after the other.We awarded Annemie and Leentje with an Ambassador for Peace certificate. They were very moved and proud to receive it.
