Wolves’ Diogo Jota earns draw at Brighton after quickfire goal exchange

The Guardian UK - 2 ore 12 min fa

It has been almost 60 years since Wolves last went 11 matches unbeaten in the top flight, under their legendary manager Stan Cullis, and they had Diogo Jota to thanks for emulating that record after the Portugal forward’s two goals earned a hard-fought point on the south coast.

After dominating the opening half an hour of this contest that saw Jota give the visitors a deserved lead, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side found themselves trailing to two goals in the space of two minutes from Neal Maupay and Davy Pröpper and apparently heading for a first defeat since mid-September.

Fraser Forster the hero as 10-man Celtic earn final victory over Rangers

The Guardian UK - 2 ore 13 min fa

Ten-man Celtic won a historic 10th successive domestic trophy when they claimed the Betfred League Cup by beating Rangers at Hampden. But Neil Lennon, 19 years, almost exactly, since signing for Celtic as a player, was fortuitous to prevail against opponents who threw everything at his team in an attempt to thwart their domestic stranglehold.

The French defender Christopher Jullien turned a Ryan Christie free-kick past Allan McGregor on the hour mark but the real hero of the hour for Celtic was goalkeeper Fraser Forster who repelled Rangers, and Alfredo Morelos in particular, with a number of impressive saves, the most notable of which came from the penalty spot.

The Guardian view on North Korea: a brewing nuclear crisis | Editorial

The Guardian UK - 2 ore 17 min fa
Pyongyang’s truce with Washington could end with terrible results. To avoid that, international efforts – notably from the US – are needed

North Korea often appears to have styled itself upon a James Bond adversary. We have seen the dramatic announcement of a deadline (New Year), followed by the arch threat that “it is up to the US what Christmas gift it will choose to get”. (Experts predict a missile test.) Its fondness for baroque menace is matched by its flair for provocation – Sunday saw the announcement of a “very important” test at its Sohae site, which the US said it had agreed to destroy. A flurry of pictures of Kim Jong-un mounted on a white horse, at the sacred site of Mount Paektu, surely herald, according to state media, “a great operation to strike the world with wonder again”. The theatricality is intentional: Pyongyang wants international attention. It should also be taken seriously. The North walked out of talks in October, frustrated that there is no sign of sanctions relaxation. The White House has reminded people that the US could use force and described Mr Kim as “Rocket Man” again – and warned he had “everything to lose”.

It would be easy to mistake this for another instalment in a predictable series. But it is only half true to say that we have been here before. Donald Trump’s threats of “fire and fury” followed by a charm offensive (“we fell in love”) have not merely failed to resolve the underlying problem; they have made a bad situation worse. He claimed progress by pretending there was no difference between something Pyongyang would not object to (multilateral denuclearisation of the peninsula) and something it would never agree to (complete unilateral denuclearisation). This was not a solution; only an illusion of progress.

COP25 in Madrid criticised for focusing on details instead of agreeing deep cuts to emissions

Urgent UN talks on tackling the climate emergency are still not addressing the true scale of the crisis, one of the world’s leading climate scientists has warned, as high-ranking ministers from governments around the world began to arrive in Madrid for the final days of negotiations.

Talks are focusing on some of the rules for implementing the 2015 Paris agreement, but the overriding issue of how fast the world needs to cut greenhouse gas emissions has received little official attention.
