Salute South Korea
BBC News – Jun 24, 2002
I’m proud of the Korean team, and I’m proud of the Turkey team too. I thank Hiddink for coaching the Korean team and teaching them how to play real football. Well done Korea and Turkey, you guys have shown us spirited football. Hope to see you in Fifa World Cup 2006, where we will reach the semi-finals once again. Sue,Korean in USA

"

The important thing now is to build on this success and hopefully raise the standard of Asian football
"

Colin MacK, England

Congratulations to both South Korea and Turkey for an excellent game of football, and for beating many of the favourites to make it this far. You should be proud of your selves. Kim, New Zealand

Golden chance for Ghana
BBC News – Jun 26, 2002
But history suggests a much darker star may soon be joining them on the world stage – the Black Stars of Ghana. A change in the rules means that the four semi-finalists, plus probably the best losing quarter-finalist, at the African Nations Cup will qualify for the World Cup itself. Had the new system been in place for 2002, Senegal, Cameroon and Nigeira – who all qualified anyway – would have been joined not by South Africa and Tunisia, but by Mali and, most likely, DR Congo. But unquestionably, Ghana has the best record of those teams who regularly do well in the continental tournament but have struggled to translate this into qualification… That was after their one world-class player, Sammy Kuffour, was dismissed from the team by coach Fred Osam Duodu during the group phase. But it is not just history that suggests Ghana’s fanatical fans have a great adventure to look forward to. By 2006, the side that got to the final of the 2001 Under-20 World Cup – losing out only to hosts Argentina – will be heading towards its peak. If they are able to go only one game better at the 2006 Nations Cup than this year’s side managed in Mali, there is every chance of the Black Star going supernova in Germany.

The Manchester United star told The Sun: “We believe that we can win Euro 2004. “That is next up on the agenda for us and it is something that I am convinced is well within our grasp. “There is so much talent and desire in this squad that the 2006 World Cup in Germany has to be a genuine target for us as well. “I honestly felt that we would have won the World Cup in Japan if we hadmanaged to get past Brazil in our quarter-final. “That wasn’t to be but there’s always a next time. And who can dare say that we won’t succeed in Portugal and Germany where we failed in Japan. ” Beckham feels that Sven-Goran Eriksson will not have to tamper too much with the current squad to achieve that glory.

It also urges the ILO to develop credible and independent inspection system in order to monitor the ILO labour standards in the sporting goods industry world-wide and, based on the above inspection system, develop ILO models of cooperation between public and private sectors to build effective methods of labour inspection. It also points out that more funds should be made available to the ILO’s International Program on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC).

Seaman to decide future on holiday
Edinburgh Evening News – Jun 26, 2002
” It is unlikely that Oliveira will agree to give up his job without financial compensation, believed to be £2. 6 million for the remainder of his contract. THE Costa Rica Football Federation have offered Alexandre Guimaraes the job as national coach until the 2006 World Cup. Guimaraes’ last contract ended after the 5-2 defeat against Brazil, which eliminated the Central American team from the World Cup. After a meeting on Monday, he was not only offered his old position but also the chance to become the national team’s general supervisor. This would increase his responsibility for organisational issues, one of his biggest complaints before the World Cup. Guimaraes will earn £13,000-per-month, paid by Inter Forever, which has the TV rights for the national team.

“It’s regretful that we lost, but there is still one more game,” Lee said. “After that, there are more games too. In 2006, there will be more World Cup games. “Right now, we’ll just try to win the next game in Daegu — we really want to thank the Korean people. ” It will likely be a last international match for veterans like Hong and striker Hwang Sun-hong, but the future has been unveiled.

Can soccer survive the World Cup?

It’s a shadowy, unaccountable transnational organisation, dispensing bribes to the Third World and riddled with corruption. No, not the IMF, but FIFA — the international football federation that runs soccer’s World Cup. He won on the back of votes from some of the poorest countries in world soccer. The fact that his main innovation has been a program that dispenses millions of dollars to the soccer officials of these countries surely had nothing to do with it.

Cole – By 2006, Roberto Carlos will be a distant memory – 9 out of 10. Ferdinand – Best defender in the World Cup? Aye, man – 10 out of 10. Campbell – Better than I thought, but if a football is his friend, I’d hate to see how he treats his enemies – 7 out of 10. Like Nobby Stiles, but passed the ball quite well. Butt not Gerard – 8 out of 10.

The hacks seek out the flacks, trolling for tidbits. Chirac told Blair what? It is a bad day all round. England and America are eliminated from the World Cup (but we Yanks go out more heroically than the toothless triple-lions). Basque separatists – unemployed steelworkers? – set off car bombs. At least I get to spend an hour with Chris Patten, whom I first met in Hong Kong a decade ago. We find a place in the Spanish tourism booth, surrounded by colourful brochures and flamenco CDs, and drink coffee. Patten is a curious figure – a Europhilic squish, Margaret Thatcher would say.

Boston took the lead in the first inning as Dustin Pedroia doubled and was driven in by the in form Ortiz, who also played his part on defense while playing as a first baseman rather than a designated hitter Cheap NFL Jerseys due to the game being Wholesale China Jerseys on the National League Cardinals’ home field.Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly(Photo: Jasen Vinlove, USA TODAY Sports)It’s unclear what therespective stars of the Seahawks offense and Panthers defense will provide in their returns from multi game absences.Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Friday thatLynch was “back to full health” after being sidelined by a hamstring injury. Despite the emergence of undrafted rookie running Cheap Oakleys back cheap oakleys outlet Thomas Rawls, Lynch’s presence is crucial to a Seahawks offense still sorting itself out.Even though Lynch is averaging 3.4 yards per carry, he allows the team to return to its established offensive identity. “They had been sequestered with a priest until that night, when they were brought in front of the entire camp staff (not the other kids, thankfully) and lead through a sort of confessional one at a time.”No better place than a children’s camp to take a page straight out of the Spanish Inquisition’s playbook.”But these are all PR stunts,” you may say, “just because he insists people should love him doesn’t mean they do.” But you’re wrong. Where American bureaucrats risk Authentic Jerseys Sale political suicide if they so much as breathe on an intern, Putin graciously and publicly accepts naked pictures of college co eds. Not just one girl from a university, Cheap Football Jerseys but all the girls at that university, with female Moscow State University students sending him an erotic calendar of themselves for his 58th birthday earlier this year; Russian women literally professionally print and bind themselves for delivery to his house.LESSON SIX: All of the above confer privilege and status. What is it about football that results in documented gang rapes having cheap oakleys the power to “divide” towns and in otherwise good football fans ignoring people’s pain? Parents, coaches and high school administrators, too comfortable saying things like “boys will be boys,” in high school end up doling out ridiculous “slaps on the wrist” for criminal behavior in college. By the time boys get to college everyone understands how important their athletic status is. college population, they are responsible for 19% percent of sexual assaults and 37% of domestic violence cases on college campuses. Sports participation does NOT turn boys into rapists, homophobes and batterers. However, participation in high level, all male sports cultures indicates a propensity for certain behavior and the statistics are pretty awful.
