NEW YORK---Argentine striker Ignacio Piatti
spoiled Frank Lampard s Major League Soccer debut
by scoring a pair of goals in the Montreal Impact s
3-2 win over New York City on Saturday.
Dominic Oduro opened the scoring for Montreal
in the 5th minute after gathering a long Laurent
Ciman pass and slipping it through City goalkeeper
Josh Saunders legs before tapping it home.
Piatti made it 2-0 in the 32nd minute with a chip
shot finish from another long ball.
Former England midfielder Lampard energised the
sellout crowd at Yankee Stadium when he entered as
a substitute in the 69th minute, immediately after a
David Villa penalty narrowed City s deficit to 2-1.
Piatti s scored from the penalty spot in the 84th
minute before Thomas McNamara quickly answered
for City 85th.
In Washington, Perry Kitchen scored in the in the
79th minute to give DC United a 6-4 win over Real
The ten goals fell one short of the MLS single-
game record. The teams combined for seven goals
in the second half, one short of the record for most
goals in a half.
Former Norway defender Pa-Modou Kah scored

KUALA LUMPUR---With an Olympic flag draped
around his neck, the official from South Sudan
couldn t contain his emotion.
Moments after his war-torn country was officially
recognised by the IOC yesterday, Tong Chor Malke Deran
wiped tears from his eyes and later broke down when
talking about the plight of his nation s athletes. The
decision means the world s newest nation will be able
to have its competitors enter the stadium in Rio de Janeiro
next year behind their own flag. More importantly, the
country s near non-existent sporting infrastructure and
athletes will receive funding assistance from the IOC.
South Sudan, which split from Sudan and became
independent in 2011, has been hit by civil war for
the past two years.
"Over the past few months, my country has under-
gone armed conflict, and we firmly believe this is
going to be a milestone and a great vehicle for pro-
moting peace-building," said Wilson Deng Kuoirot,
president of the National Olympic Committee of
"It will also give great hope and inspiration to the
youth of our country."
After their acceptance was confirmed, Kuoirot and
Deran, secretary general of the South Sudan Olympic
committee, accepted a certificate and an Olympic
flag from IOC President Thomas Bach.
While Kuoirot spoke to thank the International
Olympic Committee members, a tearful Deran
wrapped himself in the flag. Later in an interview,
Deran, with the Olympic flag still draped around his
body, broke down while talking about the plight of
his country s athletes.
"They have no food, they train without having
eaten," Deran said. "How can they exist like that?
But now this will empower us and hopefully things
South Sudan gains
