    The big day has arrived for Senegal and Algeria, who are clashing tonight in the finals of the African Cup of Nations football. The forecast looks difficult to establish for this match, between two teams that have made a great impression since the beginning of the tournament. In terms of the FIFA rankings, the Senegalese (22nd) have the advantage against the Fennecs (68th) but in the last confrontation between the two teams, in the pool phase of this Can 2019 it was the Algerians who won 1-0. As a result, the figures published on the main online betting sites do not really make it possible to release a favorite for this final. Thus, the victory rating of Senegal is between 2.50 and 2.90 euros, the one corresponding to a success of Algeria varies between 2.65 and 2.85 euros, and the draw at the end of the regular time is quoted between 2.70 and 3.05 euros. Djamel Belmadi put pressure on his opponent by saying yesterday in front of the press: "We can obviously lose this match because we play against the number 1 FIFA rankings of CAF Confederation zone of the African football) and who fate of the World Cup, all signals are in favor of Senegal.

    Immigration Aid - Think beyond the money

    Europe’s engagement with third countries is not about money. Those who think you can put a figure on a relationship woefully underestimate the significance and intricacy of such partnerships. For some time now, we have called for greater engagement with our partners in Africa and the Middle East — and the collective political will is finally there. The goal of the European Commission’s External Investment Plan is to leverage up to €44 billion in investment by 2020, and increase our external funding to reach up to €123 billion for 2021-2027. We need long-term, sustainable alliances with our key partners — and with Africa in particular. For these to be meaningful, our cooperation should go beyond migration, as it is a consequence of much broader shared challenges including geopolitical instability, demographic developments, climate change and socio-economic issues. Every such alliance must place partners on equal footing and be based on mutual trust. It should also be tailored to the specific context of the partners. Turkish authorities, for example, were never promised and never received €6 billion; the money went to international organizations on the ground that dealt directly with refugees. The EU has offered similar financial and humanitarian support to those displaced around the world, such as in Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, South Sudan and Kenya, to name a few. But refugee or migration crises will not be solved by humanitarian aid alone. And that is why the EU wants to step up its engagement and foster true alliances with third-country partners, to work toward a more stable and prosperous shared future for all.
