The France legend who set the bar for Kane at the World Cup

first_imgIt was just the 13 goals in one World Cup for Moroccan-born Fontaine, who rather unjustly didn’t win the player of the tournament award in 1958.In Sweden he scored in every game he played, including four against defending champions West Germany in a 6-3 win in Gothenburg to decide who came third.Overall, France scored 23 goals in six games, yet still lost two of them.Their defence must have been absolute merde.Miroslav Klose, meanwhile, has scored more goals overall at the World Cup with 16 across four tournaments. 2 Lineker is England’s top scoring player at the World Cup and won the Golden Boot with six goals in 1986, while he has ten overall.And Kane would love to be collecting another individual award, this time in England colours, having won two Premier League Golden Boots already.“I said before obviously as a striker that’s always an aim but I’ve said as well the most important thing is that we’re winning games,” he said following his hat-trick against Panama.“As long as the goals are helping the team win, that’s the most important thing and that’s a great performance.”However, Kane has some way to go to reach the tournament’s greatest ever haul. That title belongs to Just Fontaine.

Big East Coast floods leave 10 people dead

first_img In Alstead, north of Keene, several residents were unaccounted-for, and firefighters safely retrieved three people from a home that appeared ready to be washed away. Capt. Don Martin had to make the trip through the rising and rushing water three times, each time lending his rescue belt to one of the residents. He held onto a rope loop and signaled his fellow firefighters 200 feet away to start pulling. “I fell into one ditch that had to be at least 4 feet deep,” Martin said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

ALSTEAD, N.H. – Prolonged, heavy rain caused flooding from North Carolina to Maine over the weekend, forcing hundreds of people to evacuate, knocking out electricity, weakening dams and making roads impassable. At least 10 people died in flooding or in rain-related crashes, including two young people killed in New Hampshire when a car apparently drove off a washed-out bridge into flood waters, officials said. At least one other person was seen being swept away in a swift-flowing river. Gov. John Lynch returned from Europe to take charge of relief efforts in New Hampshire. He declared a state of emergency and called in 500 National Guard members for assistance. “This is the worst damage they’ve seen from flooding in 25 years in New Hampshire,” the governor said Sunday night.

But with rain in the forecast for the next several days, the National Weather Service warned that dams could fail or overflow. A surge over Warren Lake dam in Alstead, N.H., sent a 4- or 5-foot wall of water downstream during the weekend, damaging at least a half dozen bridges and washing away several homes. The most severe flooding in New Hampshire was in and around Keene, where some major roads were under as much as 4 feet to 6 feet of water, fire officials said. The city had no electricity and was awash in the sounds of generators and pumps Monday when the governor visited. “It’s nice to see the support and all the help,” said Darcey Zecha, whom Lynch met outside her mother’s home. About 500 people were evacuated, and about 150 were staying at a shelter in a recreation center Sunday. In Hinsdale, southwest of Keene, 19-year-old Sean Weeks was awakened by firefighters early Sunday and warned to leave. Shortly afterward, a house across the street collapsed into the raging water, but no one was in it at the time. “I looked out my window and all I could see – straight down – was water, right up against the building,” Weeks said. “I saw all this New Orleans stuff happening and I was thinking, ‘This can’t happen to me,’ then bada-bing, bada-boom, it just happened.” last_img read more
