Koreans reap rewards of World Cup success
CNN International – Jun 20, 2002
After knocking much-fancied Italy out of the tournament Tuesday the Korean giant-killers have earned themselves hefty bonuses, free flights and a stack of consumer goods from South Korean companies eager to associate themselves with the team’s success. On Monday, the government also announced that the team, having made it through the first round of the tournament, would be exempted from mandatory military service that may have hampered team preparations and qualifying for the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Under Korean law all able-bodied men under 30 are obliged to complete between 26 and 30 months of national service. Players have also seen their stock values soaring in the wake of their World Cup success with scouts from Europe’s top clubs already snapping at the heals of several of the team’s star players. According to analysts quoted in the Korea Herald, “golden goal” hero Ahn Jung-hwan could see his value as high as $10 million — four times the amount he was leased to Italian club Perugia for in 2000… With the coach assured of a free ride at the front of the plane any time he desires, his team won’t be far behind with all 23 players on the side and three of Hiddink’s assistants each receiving four return business class tickets anywhere in the world. Not that Hiddink is likely to find himself short of money in the coming months. When he took on the job of coach 18 months ago, the Korean Football Association gave him two goals — ensure the co-hosting nation won at least one of its opening matches, and get the team into the second round. ‘Honorary citizenship’ After knocking out soccer superpowers Italy and Portugal, sending Poland packing and drawing 1-1 with the U. , he’s done all that and more.

Club over country?
BBC News – Jun 19, 2002
Which would make you happier?

With Sven’s men just three wins away from lifting the World Cup, England fans are finally daring to dream that glory is within their grasp. But for many, the World Cup is not the pinnacle of football achievement – believe it or not, they would rather see their team win silverware at Cardiff or triumph in the League. Would you choose club over country?

Have your say

I was extremely happy when Juventus took the title this year in Serie A. However, nothing would be bigger then the Azzuri taking home the cup. The World Cup is, and will always be, the biggest achievement in sport. Chris, Italy

You can’t compare the two… Stephen Tate, England

I’m a season ticket holder at Arsenal and I would give up the double and start supporting Spurs (slight exaggeration) if I thought it would enable England to lift the World Cup. It’s been great this year to see the flags on cars and houses. Roll on Portugal 2004 and Germany 2006!
Mick, England

Has to be the World Cup! If you win the league you can only celebrate with your own fans, win the World Cup and everyone in the country can celebrate!
Ben, England

"

The Premiership title is up for grabs once a year, whereas the World Cup is only available once every four
"

James Haworth, England

As an Arsenal fan I would rather have England win the World Cup any day – but then, that’s easy to say when your side has a good chance of winning the league title too. Antoinette Carter, England

It has to be your country. How many people can remember who won the league in 1966?
Tom Arthur, England
The Premiership title is up for grabs once a year, whereas the World Cup is only available once every four. So I think that it would make me happier if England won as apposed to Liverpool. Of course, both would be ideal!
James Haworth, England

Unfashionable as it may be at the moment to say, I would prefer my team, West Ham, to win the league over England winning the World Cup any day.

South Korea 2 – 1 Italy | World cup 2002 | Guardian Unlimited Football…
Guardian Unlimited – Jun 18, 2002
) I’ve just seen a replay of the goal – Lee Young Pyo crosssed it in and Korean Superstar Ahn got above Maldini and headed it in. Italy’s defence was brilliant until the last 10 minutes – but they paid the price for sitting back. With the players they’ve got why didn’t they go forward? Amanda Webster from the Korean embassy says: “My eardrums have just burst. ” Luca Crocco from Italy says: “I’ve never, never seen a robbery like this. The penalty was completely invented by the referee, there was a foul on Totti and instead he was sent off (!!!) and we’ve had five perfectly valid goals disallowed.

Japan, which lost all three matches in its first appearancein the finals in France four years ago, was left rueing the quality of its final ball after impressing in the group stage. Troussier paid tribute to his “young, dynamic and ambitious”team and said it should believe in its ability to take on the best in the world. “A lack of experience in Japanese football was a problem but we can be very proud of Japan’s performance,” he said, predicting that the co-host would have another chance to shine in the next World Cup. “The 2006 World Cup is on the horizon,” he said. “I think the players have proved they are great players and I’m convinced that in the next 10 years we will see a very high level of Japanese football. Alex named in Japan side to face Turkey Japan coach PhilippeTroussier handed midfielder Alex a rare start in his side’s World Cup second round match against Turkey on Tuesday. In a surprise change, Troussier left out strikers AtsushiYanagisawa and Takayuki Suzuki and brought in Akinori Nishizawafor his first game since having his appendix removed last month… Troussier paid tribute to his “young, dynamic and ambitious”team and said it should believe in its ability to take on the best in the world. “A lack of experience in Japanese football was a problem but we can be very proud of Japan’s performance,” he said, predicting that the co-host would have another chance to shine in the next World Cup. “The 2006 World Cup is on the horizon,” he said. “I think the players have proved they are great players and I’m convinced that in the next 10 years we will see a very high level of Japanese football.

INAMOTO EAGER TO REMAIN IN EUROPE
4TheGame – Jun 19, 2002
With PSV Eindhoven understood to be keen to sign Inamoto, as Osaka are now free to negotiate a new deal with any interested party, and with Hidetoshi Nakata and Shinji Ono with Parma and Feyenoord respectively, an exodus is expected. “The fact we could not reach the quarter-final shows that Japan is not quite there in terms of experience,” stated Inamoto, who made just four appearances for Arsenal last season. “It was a match we could have won, but that’s the World Cup. We will need to have overcome our weaknesses by the time we play in the 2006 tournament. “The potential for Japanese football is very big and if we are to do better than we did in this tournament then we need experience because there is a difference between Japan and the rest of the world. “The experience will come with playing abroad, which is where I would like to stay if I am to hone my skills, and I have a feeling a number of my team-mates will want to do the same. ” Inamoto refuses to blame his departure from Arsenal as the reason why his level of performance dipped remarkably in Japan’s final two matches.

Leaving the Soccer World Cup
iAfrica.com – Jun 18, 2002
home soil in 2010?

As for the travelling faithful there was one last
matter that required our participation before we made
our way back home: Korea v Portugal. The men shouted in anticipation and the women
screeched with excitement as Korea (nicknamed The
Reds, after their team colours) took a throw in. To
say the Koreans were a little over-anxious would be an
understatement. They went completely bananas. “Dae ha
mingo” is the Korean war cry and even whispering it
will send all the Koreans within earshot into a
hand-clapping, foot-stomping frenzy… It is a particular time
in a particular space when and where the world’s
favourite sport brings together its best players to
compete for the title of world champions. And nothing
else matters – not colour nor creed nor religion. I
will be at the next world cup to once again be a part
of the magic and my wish is that hopefully so will
you. Oh how easily it is called the “Beautiful Game”

Viva Bafana Bafana Viva!.

Palestinian family wonder why their quiet son turned to murder |…
Guardian Unlimited – Jun 20, 2002
His friends and family say that in the days before his attack, which killed 19 and injured more than 50, he showed no signof what he planned to do. He watched the World Cup on television with his friends and his brothers and expressed the hope that Brazil, the team he was following, would win. Two weeks earlier he had attended the wedding of his older brother Zakaria. He seemed happy at the wedding, pestering his father about when he would find a bride for him so he could marry, build his own house and start a family. Two days before he died, he returned to the subject of his plans for his own household. That is why his family is so baffled by his decision.

Also, I wanted to have a crack at union and I had a soft spot for Wasps. I’d played against them in the 1996 Twickenham Sevens, and I remember Lawrence [Dallaglio] screaming ‘let’s smash these rugby league so and sos!’ I thought, ‘I like this guy’, so I adopted Wasps as my team, if you like. Just as you have an NFL team you NFL Jerseys Cheap like, which in my wholesale jerseys case is the (Dallas) Cowboys, Wasps were the rugby union team I followed. I was delighted to join them on the coaching side, although I had a lot to learn.”Where did that come from? After putting up nine points over the first two weeks, the Rams dropped 37 on Tampa Bay. Yes, the defense scored a touchdown and set up another one, but the offense looked a lot better than it was the two prior weeks. Now if they can get the defense to play like it did in Week 2 and the offense to continue playing like this, Los Angeles might be a good team.I know a lot of people, when they start paddling, they start getting into it and they’re beginners, they tend to get really sore and the foam boards they’re just not as abrasive as a fiberglass board or an epoxy board or some of the harder boards. So I think foam boards are good and it’s definitely a great way to start off cheap jerseys for beginning. While disappointed in our execution, I remain confident in our C Fresh strategy. We have strong popular brands that are on trend with the changing nature of consumers’ eating habits. We’re well positioned in the produce and deli section of stores with an eye on expansion into other categories such http://www.cheapjerseyssalestore.com as dairy. We have a robust innovation pipeline, and we’re http://www.cheapjerseys11.com enhancing our approach to long term innovation. Strategy was not the issue. Our problem was execution.Such a system would likely not work in the NFL because NFL stadiums sell out with such regularity due to only eight home games being played per season. A dynamic system would, however, likely put an end to the need for the infamous blackout rule in the NFL.One of the shortcomings of this model is the question of how much does ticket price correlate with attendance? If bleacher seats drop down to $4 for Kansas City Royals games, is Kauffman Stadium guaranteed to be 3/4 full? The Giants and Twins are both popular franchises in Major League Baseball which is why the system works at their ballparks.
