Belmadi was loaned to Manchester City from Marseille in 2003 and later had two seasons with Southampton.While Cisse spent most of his career at French clubs, he also lined up for Birmingham City and Portsmouth.Cisse is particularly desperate to win in Cairo as his missed shootout penalty in the 2002 final against Cameroon condemned Senegal to defeat in their only previous final appearance.The last final featuring two African coaches was in 1998 when Egypt, coached by Mahmoud el Gohary, defeated Ephraim ‘Jomo’ Sono-coached South Africa 2-0 in Ouagadougou.An endless debate among African football followers is the merits of local and foreign coaches and the Cup of Nations offers no help because foreigners have won 16 titles and locals 15.Egyptian Hassan Shehata holds the record for consecutive triumphs with three and Ghanaian Charles Gyamfi has also won three, but not in a row.France-born Herve Renard is the only coach to win with two countries, guiding outsiders Zambia to success in 2012 and repeating the feat with the Ivory Coast three years later.Cup of Nations-winning coaches1957 Egypt Mourad Fahmy1959 Egypt Pal Titkos (HUN)1962 Ethiopia Ydnekatchew Tessema1963 Ghana Charles Gyamfi1965 Ghana Charles Gyamfi1968 Zaire Ferenc Csanadi (HUN)1970 Sudan Jirí Starosta (CZE)1972 Congo Adolphe Bibanzoulou1974 Zaire Blagoje Vidinic (SRB)1976 Morocco Gheorghe Mardarescu (ROM)1978 Ghana Fred Osam-Duodu1980 Nigeria Otto Gloria (BRA)1982 Ghana Charles Gyamfi1984 Cameroon Radivoje Ognjanovic (SRB)1986 Egypt Mike Smith (WAL)1988 Cameroon Claude le Roy (FRA)1990 Algeria Abdelhamid Kermali1992 I.

Everton target Ragnar Klavan 1 Everton have opened talks with Augsburg defender Ragnar Klavan.The Merseysiders want to sign the experienced Estonia international to bolster the defensive ranks at Goodison Park and the 29-year-old could be available for around £3m this summer.Klavan has two years remaining on his existing deal with the Fuggerstadt and can look forward to Europa League football with the Bundesliga side next term, something which the Toffees cannot offer.According to German magazine Kicker, the former AZ Alkmaar star was scouted by the Blues last season, in which he made 35 appearances and scored two goals.Roberto Martinez needs to bring in another defender after releasing Sylvain Distin and Antolin Alcaraz earlier this month.England under-21 left-back Luke Garbutt is also out of contract this summer and star centre-back John Stones has been linked with a move to Manchester United.

NASA 5:24 NASA’s on a mission to collect space dirt from a potentially… NASA InSight lander rocks its journey to Mars: A view in pictures 22 Photos NASA turns 60: The space agency has taken humanity farther than anyone else, and it has plans to go further.Taking It to Extremes: Mix insane situations — erupting volcanoes, nuclear meltdowns, 30-foot waves — with everyday tech. Here’s what happens. NASA also released a GIF of the various surveys Osiris-Rex carried out after arriving at Bennu in early December The series of images, captured between Nov. 30 and Dec. 31, helped the team more accurately determine Bennu’s mass, which ensured that the orbital insertion would proceed smoothly. You can see the GIF, captured by Osiris-Rex’s black-and-white NavCam, below:Enlarge ImageOsiris-Rex surveyed 101955 Bennu before slipping into orbit on December 31. NASA/Goddard/University of Arizona/Lockheed Martin Space The orbital period, lasting until mid-February, is expected to provide additional details about Bennu’s gravity, orientation and spin, along with a better understanding of its mass. All those observations should lead to completing one of the chief objectives for Osiris-Rex: retrieve a sample from Bennu’s surface and fly it back to Earth. In 2020, the spacecraft will extend a specially designed arm, called Tagsam, for a brief high-five with the asteroid. The arm will blow nitrogen gas onto the surface of Bennu, kicking up handfuls of dirt, which the spacecraft will fly back to Earth in 2023.A successful pickpocketing will give scientists a more detailed look at the kind of compounds that make up the potentially hazardous object.Bennu is the near-Earth object that’s second most likely to collide with our planet, only outranked by an asteroid known as 1950 DA on NASA’s Palermo Technical Impact Hazard Scale. Though they’re ranked as hazardous, the actual likelihood they would ever collide with Earth is incredibly low — Bennu could smack into Earth between 2169 and 2199. 1950 DA shouldn’t trouble you at all. If it were to hit, that impact wouldn’t occur until 2880. Sci-Tech Comments Now playing: Watch this: 2 Fly, Osiris-Rex! Fly! NASA/Goddard Visiting a distant, icy world that looks like a snowman certainly had space enthusiasts enraptured in the first days of 2019, but some other historic NASA news slipped through in the final hours of 2018 — and it might reveal just as much about our solar system.The asteroid-chasing Osiris-Rex (Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security, Regolith Explorer) performed its own historic maneuver on New Year’s Eve. An eight-second thruster burn on Dec. 31 placed the spacecraft in orbit around 101955 Bennu, which drifts through the solar system’s asteroid belt between the Earth and Mars.By inserting itself into orbit around Bennu, Osiris-Rex will survey the asteroid from a distance of only about 1 mile (1.75 kilometers) from its center. Bennu’s small size creates an incredibly tiny gravitational force, so maintaining that orbit will require lots of little adjustments, made by NASA and its collaborating organizations. “The gravity of Bennu is so small, forces like solar radiation and thermal pressure from Bennu’s surface become much more relevant and can push the spacecraft around in its orbit much more than if it were orbiting around Earth or Mars, where gravity is by far the most dominant force,” said Dan Wibben, maneuver and trajectory design lead.
