Gaweseb NFA’s new Secretary General
Namibian – Jan 20, 2000
Gaweseb’s contract will last for two years, although it is
renewable, depending on an agreement between the two parties. The
former Ramblers FC (Katutura) soccer star is however currently on
a six-month probation period. Responding to a question about South Africa’s 2006 World Cup
Bid, Damaseb expressed concern about the fact that the South
African Football Association had never approached the NFA
officially. “We were only informed through regional and international
forums that our brothers in South Africa are bidding to host the
World Cup in 2006, but nothing concrete was put to us
formally. “In fact, it really puzzles us and it is very frustrating that
South Africa never bothered to approach its neighbours for
support, although it went as far as South America and the
Caribbean to lobby for support,” he said. Damaseb said the issue was of great national interest,
especially because of the historical background between Namibia
and South Africa. He however refused to say whether Namibia would
support SA’s bid.

Cup withdrawal will never happen again
BBC News – Jan 21, 2000
“We’ve been supportive right the way through and we understand the reasons why these decisions were taken. ”

Cup holders United reacted to the news by reaffirming their pledge to enter next season’s competition. ‘We’ll be back’

The club and the FA were widely criticised for the decision not to enter the third round draw – but United have consistently stressed that it was not their decision alone and that the
main reason they withdrew was to help England’s 2006 World Cup bid. “People should not lose sight of the fact that the FA and the Government were very keen for us to go to Brazil. “We were representing the country as European champions, while we were also
asked to go because it would help England’s 2006 World Cup bid.

Nigeria coach refuses to raise hopes
BBC News – Jan 22, 2000
I cannot even promise that I’ll be alive tomorrow morning. ”

Blatter backs Africa

In the Ghanaian capital, Accra, the president of the world governing body, Fifa, Sepp Blatter, has once again voiced his support for an African nation hosting the 2006 Soccer World Cup. “It is logical that the 2006 World Cup should be in Africa, ” he said. You know my love for your continent and my conviction that you are able to host the event,” he said. “You also know how I feel about the principle of rotation.

Winterburn: I may leave
BBC News – Jan 23, 2000
Graham said; “We are delighted that Villa have made it clear that they want to open talks about offering Ian a lucrative new contract. “But we would have thought they would have wanted to talk sooner rather than later because Ian is playing out of his skin at the moment. ”

England bid on the up

England’s 2006 World Cup campaign team claim they have gained ground over Germany among the African nations. Campaign director Alec McGivan, who is in Ghana presenting England’s case to the African Confederation, said: “If you had been here this week the impression you get is that this contest is primarily between us and South Africa. “I was rather surprised by the lack of showing by the Germans this week. “They came and they did their presentation, but they were in and out very quickly. “I just get the feeling from the Africans that this is a debate between
themselves and us.

Africa Cup of Nations: SABC commits ‘foul’ again
Dispatch Online – Jan 20, 2000
We thought then that it was a sign of good things to come to the viewing public. But 10 years on, besides the Soccer World Cup, such dreams have faded — more specifically if a tournament concerns African teams or is being held in Africa. To quote but two instances: during a youth Euro-African football tourney held in Cape Town early last year, besides e. tv which bothered to show a few 15-second clips of the final match, the SABC did not show us a single highlight, let alone a full match. The final nail in the coffin was when Banyana-Banyana, the South African national female soccer team, participated in the female African Cup of Nations in Nigeria. Again, no picture came to the nation but just stories of atrocities, bad playing surfaces, waterlogged pitches and hostile crowds… We thought then that it was a sign of good things to come to the viewing public.

When the Africa Cup of Nations kicks off on Saturday, what package has the SABC got for the public? Out of 24 group matches, viewers will only see a paltry three!

Why exclude the opening ceremony and humdingers like Cameroon v Ghana; Nigeria v Tunisia, Nigeria v Morocco; Zambia v Egypt and Ghana v Ivory Coast?

Agreed that DSTV will broadcast all the matches, but can we all afford the service?

Can someone tell us why the matches are not recorded and broadcast later or why a game like cricket can be fed to us from 10am till late each day from Christmas up to date but not soccer?

I really feel disappointed about the treatment given to African soccer on TV at a time when everybody expects the whole continent of Africa to rally behind SA for the 2006 World Cup bid.

Moroccans deny bid withdrawal
Dispatch Online – Jan 21, 2000
Both countries are vying to bring the event to Africa for the first time but there are worries that the existence of two rival bids could end up scuppering the hopes of both nations. Morocco moved to clarify its position after Driss Benhima, president delegate of the Moroccan Bid Committee, implied on Wednesday that Morocco might be ready to back South Africa and withdraw their own bid if the CAF threw its support behind Pretoria. The Moroccan ministry for youth and sport issued a statement to “reaffirm the unflagging determination of Morocco to keep up its candidacy with conviction and serenity right through to the end”. The ministry insisted an erroneous interpretation had been placed upon Benhima’s reported comments during a visit to Ethiopia designed to drum up support.

Recharged United ‘ready for a big game’
Telegraph.co.uk – Jan 23, 2000
In which case it is to be hoped that our fixture planners, when they get together with FIFA, can find some way of swiftly integrating it with the legitimate demands of the Premiership and FA Cup, perhaps by means of a general pause in the game here, at least at the highest level. A suspension of activity in the top division must be considered. The twin pillars of English football are too important to be manipulated – in the interests of a particular club, or the accursed 2006 World Cup bid, or both by coincidence – and this is one reason why, I sense, neutrals not accustomed to rooting for Arsenal will be doing so on Monday night.

What you’re going to need for this are a partner, a football, and a good pair of cleats. A few skills I’m going to show you today are jamming the receiver, back peddling with the receiver, and breaking with the receiver. To jam the receiver, you’re going to line up about two to three yards in front of him. Then at the snap you’re going to use your hands to jam him and try to throw him off his route. Once a receiver gets into his route, you’re going to back peddle with him, making sure not to commit your hips too far to one side or the other, keeping him directly in front of you. Then, when the receiver breaks on his route, you’re going to break with him staying as close as possible, without making contact though so you won’t get a penalty and to be tight enough to intercept the ball or swat the ball after it’s thrown. My name is Brandon Kemp, football player from Cal Poly Pomona and those were football defensive back workouts.
