      Portugal v France: a galactic battle lost in the black hole of one man’s ego

      news.movim.eu / TheGuardian · Friday, 5 July - 22:58

    This Euro 2024 clash could have been an all-time great quarter-final, and instead a part of it was stolen

    Even his absence feels like a kind of presence. The cameras continue to seek him out. The fans in the stands in their replica Manchester United tops screech a little louder, scowl a little harder. The less he does, the important he becomes. The more he disappears into this game, the heavier it feels, like a black hole sucking everything into its vortex.

    And ultimately Portugal too. The sabotage is complete. One of the most talented squads ever assembled at this level of football disappears into that self same black hole, a Vegas-era Elvis act ultimately notable only for its ability to make us gawp and keep gawping. It’s too awful to watch. It’s too awful not to watch. The clock ticks into its third hour, the second quarter-final suspended like a sentence that can never end, and yet with the knowledge of exactly how it ends. Meanwhile, Gonçalo Ramos and Diogo Jota sit on the bench.

      Théo Hernandez hits the spot as France beat Portugal in shootout to progress

      news.movim.eu / TheGuardian · Friday, 5 July - 22:02

    Two teams that simply could not score all night finally found their range in the shootout and, in the end, it was France who held their nerve. They had Théo Hernandez to thank for sending them through after João Félix, the only player to falter, struck a post with his penalty. In a strange affair of shots, chances but no finishing touch, Cristiano Ronaldo was left to regret squandering a glorious opening while Kylian Mbappé may wait anxiously on any consequences from what appeared a painful blow to his broken nose.

    The question before kick-off had been whether these sides, both yet to flow freely despite their attacking riches, would elect to turn on the taps. Portugal had drawn blanks ever since brushing Turkey aside while France, two own goals and a penalty to their name, had eased this far without offering much of note at all.

      Casseroles et sympathies royalistes: le détonnant diplomate candidat du RN à Vichy

      news.movim.eu / Mediapart · Friday, 5 July - 21:19


    Au quai d’Orsay, Rémy Queney est placardisé à la suite d’incidents survenus lors d’affectations à l’étranger. En Éthiopie, où il a usé de sa messagerie professionnelle pour des raisons privées, il est passé tout près d’un rapatriement forcé. Enquête sur la drôle de caution diplomatique du RN.

      En Haute-Marne, le député RN Christophe Bentz surfe sur l’accès aux soins

      news.movim.eu / Mediapart · Friday, 5 July - 18:30


    À ses débuts en politique, Christophe Bentz fut un opposant à l’IVG, au mariage pour tous, un partisan de la distinction entre les races. Parachuté en Haute-Marne, il a poli son image, en se positionnant opportunément dans un conflit local sur l’avenir de l’hôpital.

      Portugal v France: Euro 2024 quarter-final – live

      news.movim.eu / TheGuardian · Friday, 5 July - 17:31

    These two need to up their game. After their underwhelming performances in the round of 16, which palled in comparison with the entertainment laid on by the likes of Spain, Germany, Austria and Turkey, Portugal and France owe us one. Another of those exhilarating back-and-forths, please, like the pair contested in the 1984 and 2000 semis, and we’ll forget the Slovenia and Belgium games ever happened. Kick-off is at 8pm BST. It’s on!

      Avec l’extrême droite au pouvoir, «le Conseil d’État sera forcément attaqué»

      news.movim.eu / Mediapart · Friday, 5 July - 16:42


    La plus haute juridiction administrative française, pilier de l’État de droit, se sait dans la ligne de mire du Rassemblement national. À la fois conseil de l’exécutif pour la rédaction des lois et ultime juge administratif chargé de trancher en urgence sur les libertés, l’institution se prépare à des temps agités.

      Le RN n’a plus qu’à ramasser une Ve République à terre

      news.movim.eu / Mediapart · Friday, 5 July - 16:42


    Pour la première fois depuis 1958, un parti remettant en cause nos droits fondamentaux est aux portes du pouvoir. De révisions constitutionnelles en renoncements politiques, les gouvernements successifs ont fragilisé l’ensemble du système. Tant et si bien que les «antisystèmes» peuvent aujourd’hui s’en réclamer.

      De la Lorraine à la Normandie, l’incohérence du RN face au racisme de ses candidats

      news.movim.eu / Mediapart · Friday, 5 July - 16:41


    À la veille du premier tour, Éric Ciotti avait publiquement retiré son soutien à Louis-Joseph Pecher en raison de ses messages sur les réseaux sociaux. Mais qualifié au second tour en Meurthe-et-Moselle, il revendique toujours le soutien de son parti, dont il a conservé l’étiquette en préfecture. Une illustration du double langage de l’extrême droite, si l’on observe en regard la situation de la candidate Ludivine Daoudi dans le Calvados.

      French PM urges calm after assaults in run-up to second round vote

      news.movim.eu / TheGuardian · Friday, 5 July - 16:15

    Gabriel Attal’s call comes on tense last day of campaigning after more than 50 candidates and canvassers attacked

    The French prime minister, Gabriel Attal, has urged all political parties to call for calm on a tense last day of campaigning for a snap election in which the far-right hopes to win a majority in parliament.

    “Violence and intimidation have no place in our society,” Attal wrote in a social media post.
