It is a visit to settle a very heavy past. Emmanuel Macron is making this Thursday a highly symbolic trip to Rwanda in order to finalize the reconciliation process after more than 25 years of tensions linked to the role played by France in the genocide of the Tutsi of 1994. The most important moment will come soon after. his landing in Kigali: the president will deliver a speech at the Genocide Memorial, where the remains of 250,000 of the more than 800,000 victims of one of the most deadly tragedies of the twentieth century lie. Rwanda awaits an official apology during this speech.

A Europa League final at the end of the suspense. It was indeed necessary to wait for the end of a very long penalty shootout to attend the first coronation in the competition of Villarreal. The team beat Manchester United (1-1, 11-10 on penalties) on Wednesday night in Gdansk, Poland. With this victory, Unai Emery becomes the first coach to win the C3 four times after the treble achieved with Sevilla (2014, 2015, 2016). Another notable person in the confrontation: Etienne Capoue. French midfielder Villarreal has been voted man of the match. The Spanish club on the other hand does not do the business of AS Monaco at all. The principality’s club could indeed have benefited from a direct place in the group stage of the C1 in the event of Manchester’s victory.
