Chinese striker Wu Lei eyeing victory in WC qualifier against Oman******
SHARJAH, UAE, Nov. 8 (Xinhua) -- China's national soccer team on Monday welcomed back its star forward Wu Lei in Sharjah, the UAE for its upcoming World Cup Asian qualifier against Oman here on Thursday.。
The Espanyol forward Wu participated in the training only hours after he arrived at the hotel from Spain in the early morning on Monday.。
"I want to score goals and help the team beat Oman," Wu said.。
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, China's two home fixtures against Oman and Australia have been moved to Sharjah, where the Chinese team clinched four consecutive wins in the qualifying campaign and Wu contributed five goals.。
"The home advantage is very important and the support from our fans could be very helpful for us. Obviously it's very disappointing that we can't play at home, but the only thing in our mind is to play the matches well. Sharjah is a lucky place for me [as I scored many goals here]," Wu noted.。
China, drawn into Group B of the final qualifying round with Australia, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Oman and Vietnam, now ranks fifth in the group with only three points after four games. Wu's team has to beat Oman to keep its faint World Cup dream alive.。
"Our team is under great pressure recently. I think we all can deal with the stress well as professional players. We need to focus on ourselves and do the right things. It's not the time to talk about the group table. No matter which opponent we face, we must fight for a win," he added. Enditem。
US says Syria airstrike investigated by NY Times 'legitimate'******
The US Central Command said on Sunday that a 2019 airstrike that killed civilians in Syria was "legitimate," after a New York Times investigation said the military had concealed the death of dozens of non-combatants.。
The newspaper published the results of its investigation on Saturday saying a US special task force operating in Syria – sometimes leaving its military partners in the dark to preserve secrecy – dropped three bombs on a cluster of civilians near the Islamic State group bastion of Baghouz, killing 70 people, mainly women and children.。
The report says a US legal officer "flagged the strike as a possible war crime" but that "at nearly every step, the military made moves that concealed the catastrophic strike."
Drawing from confidential documents, interviews with personnel directly involved and officials with top security clearance, The New York Times found that the strike "was one of the largest civilian casualty incidents of the war against the Islamic State," albeit never publicly acknowledged by the US military.。
"The death toll was downplayed. Reports were delayed, sanitized and classified. United States-led coalition forces bulldozed the blast site. And top leaders were not notified," the report said, adding the Pentagon's independent inspector general's probe findings were "stalled and stripped of any mention of the strike."
In a detailed response, Central Command said an investigation found the strike was "legitimate self-defense," "proportional" and that "appropriate steps were taken to rule out the presence of civilians."
It added an investigation was launched after a military report found there had likely been civilian casualties.。
Along with 16 IS fighters determined to have died in the bombing, the investigation concluded at least four civilians were killed and eight wounded.。
"We self-reported and investigated the strike according to our own evidence and take full responsibility for the unintended loss of life," said CENTCOM spokesperson Captain Bill Urban.。
He said the investigation could not "conclusively characterize the status of more than 60 other casualties," adding some women and children, "whether through indoctrination or choice, decided to take up arms in this battle and as such could not strictly be classified as civilians."
Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces and their US-led coalition allies declared the defeat of a self-proclaimed IS "caliphate" in March 2019.。
