Ghana look to the future
BBC News – Aug 17, 2001
The decision is part of a new five year development programme, announced on Friday by the Ghana Football Association. GFA chairman Ben Koufie said the aim of the programme was to see Ghana qualify for the World Cup finals in 2006. Most of Ghana?s army of foreign-based players would be left out for the Nations Cup because the core of the local squad, who will start preparations in October, will not be changed for the purpose of consistency. Youngsters get chance

Koufie said: “The national squad will basically be a home-based team with the coaches finally looking at the possibility of beefing the team up with some of the foreign-based players. “The inclusion of foreign-based players will be on merit, nothing else.

Swedes watch Eriksson with covetous eyes

Lagrell explained: “For some people, England are the first team. I have to say that. But in the World Cup, Sweden will be the first team again. Swedish people are very interested in English club football so a lot of them support the national team of England. ” Eriksson’s triumph in winning the Serie A title with Lazio, and his success in reviving England’s faltering World Cup qualifying campaign, are regarded in Stockholm and Gothenburg as a global advertisement for Swedish adaptability and organisational skill.

Following England – from Taiwan via Hertfordshire

This gives fuel to the fire I’m trying hard to contain. “They should have given the job to a young English manager, like Peter Taylor. Told him to forget about next year’s World Cup. Build with a group of young players for 2006 – you need long-term thinking. “OK, so the Buddha probably didn’t get as annoyed as I’m getting. But I am absolutely convinced. It’s just so obviously true.

“This partnership again shows our firm commitment to international football,” said Erich Stamminger, member of the Executive Board of adidas-Salomon AG, responsible for Global Marketing. “Moreover, it underlines our intention to further develop our business in the Latin American market. ” Adidas is the official sponsor, supplier and licensee of the 2002 FIFA World Cup in Korea and Japan as well as the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Adidas will equip several top teams for the 2002 Championship: current World and European Champion France, as well as Germany, Spain, Japan, Sweden, Australia, China, South Africa, and newly signed Argentina.

Dutch minds firmly focused on Lansdowne
Irish Independent – Aug 15, 2001
” Since replacing a misty-eyed Frank Rijkaard after Euro 2000, when Holland were knocked out by Italy after missing five, yes five, penalties in their semi-final, Van Gaal’s judgment has been questioned repeatedly. His first act was to rival Kevin Keegan for circumspection. “My aim is to win the World Cup,” the former Barcelona coach said, although, armed with a contract until 2006, he has since backtracked by insisting there is no timescale on his ambition. He will not resign if Holland fail to reach Japan and South Korea. “I firmly believe the players are over the loss of Euro 2000 but it took a season,” he said yesterday. “They were tired because they didn’t get any rest. Now they look fresh.

FIFA Shortlists Stadia for 2006 World Cup
This Day – This Day (subscription) – Aug 12, 2001
German organisers plan to hold the final in the Olympic Stadium in Berlin. The stadium, which hosted the 1936 Olympic Games and is currently home to Bundesliga soccer club Hertha Berlin, is to be upgraded at a cost of 174 million dollars. In the meantime, the German organising committee of world governing body FIFA has drawn up a list of five more venues. The others on an initial shortlist are in Leipzig, Frankfurt, the AOL-Arena in Hamburg and the stadiums of Borussia Dortmund and Schalke 04 in the west of the country… In the meantime, the German organising committee of world governing body FIFA has drawn up a list of five more venues. The others on an initial shortlist are in Leipzig, Frankfurt, the AOL-Arena in Hamburg and the stadiums of Borussia Dortmund and Schalke 04 in the west of the country. “It would be a travesty if football isn’t played here,” FIFA President Sepp Blatter was quoted as saying during his visit to Schalke’s new 62,000 arena. The 2006 World Cup is likely to be held in at least 10 stadiums, possibly as many as 12. Those nervously awaiting a final outcome include the Olympic Stadium in Munich and the stadiums of Cologne, Hanover, Kaiserslautern, Nurem-berg and VfB Stuttgart. Ruled out, according to the Max report, are Bremen, which would then be the third northern venue, Leverkusen, whose capacity is only 22,500, Moenchengladbach, whose ambitious stadium project is unlikely to be ready and Dusseldorf, set to be the international media venue.

Caborn provokes mirth to equal predecessors
Telegraph.co.uk – Aug 10, 2001
Denis Howell was an exception and Kate Hoey did enough to suggest that she might break the mould and prove that sports ministers need not be non-entities – as nearly all Howell’s successors have been in the last 25 years. It could also be said that, when it comes to provoking unsolicited mirth, Caborn has some way to go before he reaches the nadir touched by Tony Banks, New Labour’s first sports minister. Banks’s behaviour during England’s misconceived bid to host the 2006 World Cup finals made him a figure of fun – not least for the German football legend, Franz Beckenbauer. Just before FIFA voted on England’s bid in July 2000 I was talking to Beckenbauer, who was heading the rival German bid, when Banks came along and, upon seeing me, started abusing me, clearly unhappy at my reports which had indicated that England did not stand much of a chance. Beckenbauer was astonished that a British minister should behave in this fashion and he had not forgotten the incident even a year later. When I met him at the FIFA congress in Buenos Aires this summer, his first words to me were: “How is Tony, is he still abusing you?”If nobody in international athletics is laughing at Caborn, it is because they have not got over shaking their heads in bewilderment at the sheer effrontery of.

Orlando Pirates boss out on bail
BBC News – Aug 19, 2001
The rifle was found after Khoza, chairman of league champions Orlando Pirates, had his home raided by the country’s tax officials, accompanied by police. The raid follows a “lifestyle analysis” conducted over the past few months by the South African Revenue Services (Sars) into how Khoza built his business empire. Khoza, who is also deputy chairman of the SA Football Association and former Chairman of South Africa’s 2006 World Cup bid committee, will re-appear in the Soweto Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday. Further charges

According to the Sunday Times South Africa’s National Police Commissioner Jackie Selebi confirmed that two further charges had been brought against Khoza under the Income Tax Act. Khoza faces charges of contravening the Act by failing to declare income, and giving false information to the Revenue Service, Selebi said. Justice Minister Penuell Maduna said the government wanted to “criminalise the possession of unexplainable wealth”. “The crime is not the fact that a person is rich but that there is a variance between the obvious opulence the person displays and their earnings,” said Maduna.

mom tina simpson engaged to landscaper jon goldsteinTo identify predetermined microstructural defects before surgery, SD OCT raster scans within 2 weeks before surgery were conducted. The maximal macular hole dimension (hole size) was defined as the longest distance between the tips of external limiting membrane (ELMs) on horizontal images (Figure 1). As an indicator for reflecting degree of foveal photoreceptor degeneration, inner nuclear layer (INL) cystic changes and outer segment (OS) shortening were graded into four classifications in reference to standard images (Figure 1). Foveal morphology of fellow eye scans was also analyzed as a reference for prehole foveal morphology. Among the scans, the largest measured foveolar floor size (length between the boundaries free of ganglion cell layer (GCL) and INL) was chosen for reference. (a) http://www.fakeoakleysaler.com Determination of hole diameter and grading of preoperative microstructural damages. Hole dimension was defined as the greatest distance between the tips of the ELM. Factors reflecting degree of retinal degeneration, INL cystic changes, and OS shortenings of the marginal retinal tissue were graded in reference to standard images. (b) Because of structural variability of the fovea among individuals, the size of the foveolar floor of the fellow eye (FE) was measured assuming morphologic correlations existed between both eyes. To determine the influences of anatomic variability of the fovea on hole parameters, a ratio between the hole diameter and foveolar floor size of the fellow eyes was calculated. (c) Microstructural recovery patterns were determined 6 months after surgery. Analysis of the integrity of IS and http://www.cheapjerseysselling.com ELM were performed and the Baratas Replicas Ray Ban defect size was measured. Recovery patterns were cheap oakleys graded in reference to standard images.Post traumatic encephalopathy was about the only remaining diagnosis I had in mind while I performed the autopsy and considered the case.
