President-elect Donald Trump blasted the election recount on Saturday, calling it "a scam" and "ridiculous" adding that Hillary Clinton had already conceded. He said the fundraising ploy by the Green Party and its nominee, Jill Stein was just a way to make some money.

He said:
"This recount is just a way for Jill Stein, who received less than one percent of the vote overall and wasn't even on the ballot in many states, to fill her coffers with money, most of which she will never even spend on this ridiculous recount."

Jill Stein was the presidential candidate for the Green Party.

Then she raised her target to $7million saying that she needed the extra funds for her lawyers.
After Trump complained about the recount, h…

Four minutes later, Nigeria doubled the lead as Faith Ikidi headed the ball into the top corner beyond the reach of Kenya goalkeeper Vivian Akinyi from a free-kick swung in from the left. 
Kenya did not give up and did their best to push forward and had some chances from set-plays to threaten the Nigerian goal without really troubling keeper Alaba Jonathan. 
But it was Nigeria who continued to create chances with Asisat Oshoala (pictured) looking dangerous as she looked to add another goal to the four she sco…
