Saka Image Used In England Defeat By Media Was Criticised by Ashleyokeneye(f): 2:33pm On Jun 11
Bukayo Ayoyinka Temidayo Saka is an English professional footballer who plays as a right winger for Premier League club Arsenal and the England national team. He is regarded as one of the best wingers in the world. Some media outlets have been criticised for the "divisive" choice of using a photograph of Bukayo Saka to illustrate England's defeat to Iceland.

Saka came on as a 65th-minute substitute in the game at Wembley on Friday, but an image of him was used across several back pages of English newspapers. A social media post of the coverage was highlighted by former England striker Ian Wright who said that "those deciding who goes on the back pages know what they're doing". The Star and the Sun were highlighted for using a Saka image on their back pages, while the Telegraph used 22-year-old Saka to illustrate a player ratings post on X. The BBC Sport website's live text, which changes its main picture throughout the match, also used an image of Saka during the game after he had come on.

In an open letter to editors, Kick It Out chief executive Tony Burnett said the media needs to "remember its responsibilities". Burnett said: "Over the last few years, we know that a lot of work has gone into diversifying the media industry, and it has helped in showing that perpetrators of discrimination have been brought to justice. "But many fans will have woken up on Saturday morning and questioned whether anything has changed at all. "Heading into Euro 2024, fans are rightly asking whether the current England squad will see a repeat of what happened to Saka, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho after the last Euros final where all three suffered terrible online abuse because of their actions on the field. "It's a question we have been asking ourselves at Kick it Out. "There has been progress with prosecutions, and the Online Safety Bill has been passed to hopefully bring more scrutiny on social media companies. But last season, we received more reports – both online and in stadiums - targeting players than ever before. So whatever gains we are making, they are not enough.
"I shouldn't need to remind you that the impact of black players being targeted in the media has a long history and is felt far and wide. It sends a message that they are not welcome, that they are only a misplaced kick from being vilified and it sends a message to online abusers that targeting players is fair game. "But it also sends a message to fans from black and ethnic minority communities that they do not belong or can be abused too. These points need to be considered when writing headlines or selecting images as deadlines approach. Words and pictures travel a long way, hitting harder than you might realise."

Delroy Corinaldi, executive director of Black Footballers Partnership, called the use of Saka imagery "divisive" and added: "We've been here before: the UK media has not learnt from its past behaviours. "In 2018, Raheem Sterling called out the media for unfairly targeting young black footballers with negative headlines. Yet here we are a week before the Euro 2024 tournament, and the press are playing their age old games." Saka, Rashford and Sancho were racially abused on social media in the wake of all three missing penalties in England's 3-2 shootout loss to Italy in the Euro 2020 final.
A day after suffering alleged racist abuse from Chelsea fans during his then-club Manchester City's defeat at Stamford Bridge in December 2018, Sterling - who has since joined the Blues - said newspapers were helping to "fuel racism" by the ways in which they portray young black footballers. Arsenal winger Saka made his England debut in October 2020 and has since accumulated 33 caps, scoring 11 goals. Wright called for greater media responsibility, saying: "Now more than ever let's get behind and support these young people. We can all see what's happening and who's being set up to be the face of defeat. "Let's keep our energy focused on giving these players pure love and support throughout the tournament."

Football journalist Darren Lewis, who is assistant editor of the Daily Mirror and president of the Sports Journalists' Association, also criticised the use of Saka's image in the wake of the defeat. "Just because I work in the media it doesn't mean I can't acknowledge the concern about Bukayo Saka being used as the face of England's defeat and poor performance - despite other players performing worse - across a number of platforms," Lewis wrote on social media. "It is a reminder that we need to think about everything put into the public domain." BBC Sport has approached the Sun, the Star, the Telegraph, press regulator Independent Press Standards Organization (Ipso) and newspaper body News Media Association for a response.

Leo Messi: "Mbappe saying that Euro's are more difficult than the World Cup? He also said that the South American teams didn't have the competition of the Europeans. Everyone values what they play.

"The Euro Cup is very important, but it leaves out Argentina, three-time world champion; Brazil, five-time world champion; Uruguay, two-time world champion. There are many world champions left out to say that the Euro Cup is the most difficult, right?

In the World Cup, the best teams are there, all the world champions are generally there. That's why everyone wants to be world champion.

Toni Kroos on Jude Bellingham: "I've been able to live with him for a year and have often had to wonder if he's really only 20 years old.

He seems much more mature, especially off the field. He has the personality to be the hope of England.”

Most I predict all the matches there in other to win the free predictions?[/quote]Creating accurate match predictions, whether for sports or other events, involves a combination of data analysis, knowledge of the field, and sometimes a bit of luck. Here are some key points to consider when aiming to make reliable predictions:

1. Data Analysis
Historical Data: Analyze past performance of teams or individuals. This includes win/loss records, scores, and patterns in performance.
Statistics: Utilize statistical models and tools to identify trends and probabilities. Tools like regression analysis, machine learning algorithms, and Bayesian models can be particularly useful.
Current Form: Evaluate the current form and momentum of the teams or players. Recent performances can often be a good indicator of future outcomes.
2. Knowledge of the Field
Team Composition: Understand the strengths and weaknesses of the teams or individuals involved. This includes player injuries, changes in team line-ups, and tactical approaches.
External Factors: Consider external factors such as weather conditions, home/away advantage, and the significance of the match for the teams involved.
Expert Opinions: Follow insights and analyses from experts and pundits in the field. While not always accurate, they can provide valuable perspectives.
3. Statistical Models and Tools
Machine Learning Models: Use machine learning models to predict outcomes based on various inputs. These models can learn from past data and improve over time.
Simulation Tools: Run simulations of the matches using Monte Carlo simulations or other probabilistic methods to estimate the likelihood of different outcomes.
4. Tracking and Adapting
Keep Records: Maintain records of your predictions and the actual outcomes. This helps in refining your models and understanding where predictions go wrong.
Adjust Models: Continuously improve your prediction models based on feedback and new data. The more data you collect, the better your models can become.
5. Ethical Considerations
Transparency: Be transparent about the methods and data sources you use for making predictions.
Responsibility: Avoid misleading others with overconfident predictions, especially when it involves financial stakes.

That's why England will never be as successful as France. English media subtle racism towards black players will only spell more doom for their National team. Even Germany is towing that path. Their Media have started campaigning for more white players in their national team.

I wonder if France will ever win any world cup without black players. They also wanted to remove black players from their team which gave them a very poor show in Brazil 2014 and the world cup in 2010. They had to retrace their steps.
