Late winner helps Frankfurt edge Union in Bundesliga******
BERLIN, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- Eintracht Frankfurt secured a 2-1 over Union Berlin after Evan Ndicka headed home the winner in the dying seconds of the game at the 13th round in Bundesliga on Sunday.。
The "Eagles" started powerfully into the clash and thought they had opened the scoring with 7 minutes gone but Rafael Santos Borre's goal after Daichi Kamada's through ball was ruled offside.。
Frankfurt remained active and eventually marked the opener in the 22nd minute when Djibril Sow benefitted on a rebound following a dangerous cross and slotted home from 16 meters right-footed.。
The hosts gained momentum and should have made it two, but Kamada headed narrowly wide in the 25th minute while unmarked Kristijan Jakic missed the target by a header from five meters four minutes later.。
Union was unable to put up resistance whereas Frankfurt lacked accuracy in the final third as Kostic hit the side netting from a tight angle in the 36th minute.。
Borre created another chance five minutes later but the Columbian international pulled wide with all time and space.。
The visitors from the capital shocked wasteful Frankfurt at the hour mark as Ndicka felled Taiwo Awoniyi inside the penalty area to cause a penalty. Union veteran Max Kruse stepped up and clinically leveled the scores from the spot in the 62nd minute.。
The equalizer shocked Frankfurt and disrupted the flow of the game as the spectators had to wait until the 82nd minute to see the next chance on target as Andreas Voglsammer tested Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp.。
Frankfurt increased the pressure in the closing stages and was rewarded as Kostic's cross into the box found Ndicka, who artistically nodded home the winner between two defenders in the added time.。
"I think we reaped a deserved victory. We played very well in the first half and should have scored more than one goal. We made one mistake and get immediately punished by Union. However, we never give up and that is why we have won today," Frankfurt head coach Oliver Glasner said.。
"It was a really difficult game for us. Frankfurt dominated the game over 90 minutes hence they have secured a deserved victory here. They should have sealed the deal earlier, but they allowed us to pull back. We actually have to protect the draw then, but Frankfurt wanted the win and got it.。
Despite the win, Frankfurt slip to the 12th spot in the table meanwhile Union Berlin slump to 6th place. Enditem。
Wildlife Photographer of the Year: 'Explosive sex' wins top prize
It's like an explosion underwater. Several camouflage groupers rush to release their sperm as a female fish drops a burst of eggs.
This image taken at Fakarava Atoll in the Pacific has earned Laurent Ballesta the prestigious title of Wildlife Photographer of the Year (WPY).
劳伦特·巴勒斯塔（Laurent Ballesta）在南太平洋法卡拉瓦环礁（Fakarava Atoll）海底拍摄的照片，赢得世界著名的野生动物摄影奖（Wildlife Photographer of the Year）桂冠。
Jury chair Roz Kidman Cox said it was a technical tour de force.
该奖评委会主席罗兹·基德曼·考克斯（Roz Kidman Cox）说，这张照片从技术层面来说也是一幅杰作。
"It's partly the setting, taken during a full Moon, but also the timing of it, knowing when to take the picture."
The annual spawning of camouflage groupers occurs in July. It's been known to draw up to 20,000 fish, along with many reef sharks looking for a meal. Overfishing threatens the groupers, but this picture was captured in a reserve that gives them some protection.
"We spent five years in this place, 3,000 hours of diving, to get this particular moment," Laurent said.
"I'm attached to this picture because of the shape of the cloud of eggs: it looks like an upside-down question mark. It's a question of the future of these eggs because only one in one million will (survive to) become an adult, but it's maybe more symbolic of the future of nature. It's a very important question about the future of nature."
As well as celebrating WPY's Grand Prize, the French photographer also wins the competition's Underwater category.

The blurred green and yellow colours in the background belong to one of those three-wheeled tuk-tuk taxis.
"Its focusing is pin sharp," Roz Kidman Cox told BBC News. "You can actually see the little fangs if you blow up the picture. I love the way it's been framed and the way you can see all the texture of the web, its lattice structure."
Vidyun recalled: "It was challenging to focus the tent spider because the web shook every time a vehicle passed by."
Started in 1964, WPY is organised by London's Natural History Museum.
The competition attracts tens of thousands of entries each year. Scroll down to see some of the individual category winners.
