Blatter’s biggest battle
BBC News – Jun 13, 2001
Uefa dismissed it as “unacceptable”, especially as the first proposed competition would take place in 2004, coinciding with the 50th anniversary edition of Uefa’s European Championship. Although they publicly buried the hatchet at the 2002 World Cup draw, they were again soon
at loggerheads over the World Club Championship. Relations were damaged further in July when Johansson’s choice Germany prevailed over Blatter’s preferred South Africa to host the 2006 World Cup. And the protracted saga over the future of the transfer system in football stretched them to breaking point. That left Blatter’s future in jeopardy, even before his latest troubles.

Nigeria may bid for 2010
BBC News – Jun 6, 2001
“We have not made a decision,” he said. “The most important thing is for Africa to stage the tournament. ”

He ruled out, however, sharing the World Cup with South Africa. “That won’t be possible because it is too expensive. ”

Fifa are expected to formally announce the World Cup rotation procedure at its annual Congress in Buenos Aires on 7 July. But Aku said it was assumed Africa would have the tournament first in 2010 and that Fifa had repeatedly promised as much… Aku, in London to promote his country’s staging of the All-Africa Games in Abuja in 2003, said the four recent stadium disasters across Africa would have no bearing on the continent’s credentials for staging either that event or the World Cup. A total of 184 people were killed in football tragedies in April and May, including 126 at the Hearts of Oak versus Asante Kotoko game in Accra on 9 May and 43 at the Ellis Park, South Africa, disaster a month earlier. “It was not because of any inadequacies in infrastructure, it was more a crowd control problem.

FIFA says Canada worthy to bid on World Cup

“We know and respect the Canadian Soccer Association. We know that they don’t do things rashly. “They’ve always been ready to play their part in world football. We had the under-16 (championship) in Canada in 1987, we’ve got the first women’s under-19 (championship) in Canada next year after the World Cup… ” Earlier this week, Denis Coderre, secretary of state for amateur sport, announced an agreement between the federal government and Canadian Soccer Association to bid on either the 2011 or 2014 tournaments. The year depends on whether FIFA sticks with the present four-year rotation or moves to holding the 32-country finals every two years. Germany will host the 2006 event with South Africa favoured to get the nod in 2010. Next year’s finals are being shared by Japan and South Korea. Fellow CONCACAF country Mexico staged the event in 1970 and 1986 while the U.

Ghana stay with same man
BBC News – Jun 8, 2001
Ghana Football Association acting chairman Emmanuel Owusu-Ansah said it has been decided that plans to employ a foreign coach will be put aside until after the Nations Cup, when Osam Duodu?s contract expires. It will be the second time that Osam-Duodu will take the Black Stars to the Nations Cup after helping the side to earlier success as African champions on home soil 23 years ago. In April, Osam-Duodu was recalled as caretaker-coach for the second time in eight months, after his Ghanaian counterpart Cecil Jones Attuquayefio was sacked amid some controversy… As coach of the Beninois side, Dragons de l’Oueme, Osam-Duodu drafted Abedi Pele into his side in one of the early destinations in the former Ghanaian skipper?s professional career. Technical director Ben Koufie, who is the other GFA candidate, is believed to have similar views to Abedi on backing domestic coaches. But the focus for the new GFA chairman would be to find a coach to take Ghana to the 2006 World Cup finals, which would be a first for the Black Stars if it happens. Two Germans, a Dutchman and Dossena again had shown interest in taking up the Ghana job full time before Osam-Duodu was confirmed.

Waking up to the Picketts Lock hangover
Telegraph.co.uk – Jun 8, 2001
And what a muddle it has been. The idea first formed in the Nineties, amid the euphoria after the launch of the National Lottery, was that London would host the 2001 championships in a rebuilt Wembley. But this idea was overtaken by the greater one of hosting the 2006 World Cup. Tony Banks, who as an opposition MP said it should go to South Africa, supported it so enthusiastically as Minister for Sport that, in July 1999, he left the ministry to become the Prime Minister’s special 2006 envoy. Just before that he met Primo Nebiolo, president of the then International Amateur Athletics Federation. It was already too late for 2001, Paris was bidding for 2003 and so they struck a deal for London to stage the 2005 World Championships. But the Wembley plans came unstuck and earlier this year the Football Association turned to the Government for money, which brought Carter into the picture… Just before that he met Primo Nebiolo, president of the then International Amateur Athletics Federation.

But the Wembley plans came unstuck and earlier this year the Football Association turned to the Government for money, which brought Carter into the picture. He now holds the destiny of both Wembley and the 2005 World Championships in his hands. Presented as fiction this story would have been rejected as unbelievable, yet it is happening now. The lesson is clear: next time our sports administrators and politicians have the brilliant idea of hosting an international event they would be well advised to go home, take an Alka-Seltzer and lie down in a darkened room. They will wake up feeling a lot better.
