“It will be a tough race between Germany and South Africa,” German Football Federation (DFB) President Egidius Braun said in Kaiserslautern. “We will have to go all out now in the final spurt. ”

With only 10 weeks remaining before Fifa’s executive committee decides on July 6 who will host the 2006 World Cup, Braun announced a massive World Cup campaign for this weekend’s Bundesliga programme to demonstrate the country’s support for the bid. All players and match officials will wear a green logo on their shirts promoting the German bid.

NFA backs SA World Cup
bid
HELGE SCHUTZ

THE Namibia Football
Association has put its weight behind South Africa’s bid to
stage the 2006 World Cup following an emergency Cosafa
executive meeting in Johannesburg over the weekend which was
attended by the NFA’s vice president John Muinjo. South Africa’s bid was
endorsed unanimously by the Cosafa executive after a formal
presentation was made by the bid committee. According to a press release
issued by the NFA yesterday, Cosafa feels that it should be
Africa’s turn to host the event this time round. “Hosting the event in South
Africa will in particular hold future prospects and
spin-offs for the southern African region such as an
economic boost through tourist packages. Countries would
like to acclimatise through pre-tournament training against
regional teams, which in return will benefit the
associations dramatically.

A report into the Wembley planning application will be released by Brent council next Tuesday, with a final decision on its acceptability due to be made on May 15 ­ less than two months before football world governing body decides the host nation for the 2006 tournament. It is already widely known that officers have recommended the application is rejected because adequate funds have not been put in place to ensure the local transport network is capable of carrying the increased number of people using the complex. A meeting between all interested parties last month held open the possibility the problems could be resolved, so Brent agreed to defer the report’s release to give time for formal financial assurances to be made. However, chief officer Paul Daisley confirmed yesterday that none of the parties — including Wembley — had been in touch and unless there was any movement in the next week, the application is doomed to failure.

He goes on to say he’s been asked how he thinks other players will respond to the news. “The simple answer is, I have no idea,” Collins writes. “I’m a pragmatist.
