Future bright for Turkey’s semifinalists
SI.com – Jun 27, 2002
The core of the technically skilled side that lost 1-0 to Brazil in the semifinal Wednesday looks set to remain in place, although 30-year-old striker Hakan Sukur will have to fight for his place as the likes of Ilhan Mansiz and Fenerbahce's Serhat Akin stake their claims. Hasan Sas, 25 and the one Turk who really shone at the World Cup, will be around for a while yet, although whether his club Galatasaray will be able to hold on to him remains unclear. “After this the whole world will be looking at Turkish football and Turkish people differently. Everyone has seen how even the best teams have problems with the Turkish national team. They've seen how high we've raised the bar,” Hasan said after holding Brazil to a single goal. Coach Senol Gunes has a contract with the Turkish Federation until 2004 and shows no signs of wanting to end his tenure in charge of the most successful team in Turkish history. He started weeding out an older generation of players ahead of the World Cup and if age alone is a guide, players such as Tayfur Havutcu and Abdullah Ercan, who barely had a look-in at the World Cup, may have to make way… “But in Germany we will be one of the hosts. ” He utterly failed to disguise his glee at the prospect of playing in a country already populated by hundreds of thousands of Turkish migrant workers. Two years after the 2006 World Cup, Turkey have a chance to play at home again, having launched a joint bid with neighboring Greece to host the 2008 European Championships. This World Cup held jointly between Korea and Japan, neighbors with a history of conflict and prickly relations, serves as something of a trial run for the Turkish and Greek bid, similarly based on an attempt to forge common ground between two historic rivals with a past of bad blood. UEFA will decide on the venue for the 2008 tournament in December this year, and Turkish officials hope the political background will give them an edge over strong rival joint bids from, among others, Austria and Switzerland, Scotland and Ireland, as well as a four-way Nordic bid.

Asia wants five Cup places in 2006
TOKYO, June 26: The Asian Football Confederation (AFC), boosted by South Korea?s surprise progress to the World Cup semi-finals, has repeated its demand for the continent to be given five places in the 2006 finals in Germany. AFC general secretary Peter Velappan, pointing to Korea?s feat plus Japan?s progress to the second round, said on Wednesday his organisation would ask world governing body FIFA after Sunday?s final to raise the number of guaranteed places for Asia. In addition to co-hosts South Korea and Japan, both China and Saudia Arabia also qualified for this year?s finals from Asia. The continent also had the chance of a another spot through a playoff with a European team but Iran lost out to Ireland. ?China and Saudi Arabia were unfortunate (at this year?s finals).

Gomez asked to stay on
BBC News – Jun 27, 2002
Gomez, a Colombian, guided Ecuador to an unprecedented second-place in the South American qualifying and a first appearance at the World Cup finals. He is now considering a new deal which would take him through to the 2006 World Cup. “We talked to Hernan and told him we want him to stay. He asked us for time to make the decision,” Ecuadorean football association president Luis Chiriboga said. “We don’t know if it will be one month or two. We just have to wait… He is now considering a new deal which would take him through to the 2006 World Cup. “We talked to Hernan and told him we want him to stay.

We just have to wait. “Ecuador went out in the first round after defeats by Mexico and Italy but they drew considerable pride from a win over Croatia. Chiriboga believes Gomez has put together a side capable of performing at a consistently high level in international football.

com producers Simon Hooper and Jeff Green went Head2Head on who will win the World Cup final, and the following is a selection of user responses:Whether it’s Brazil or it’s Germany, in the end, the underdogs of this tournament will be the real winners. They have finally shaken up the mighty Europeans. The evidence of this is found in FIFA and former Euro-football greats giving excuses for the success of non-Euro countries like the USA and S. They are shaking in their boots and blaming fatigue and long tournaments for their cup woes… I don’t think both powerhouses came to the final match because of luck. In any case, I pray for the Brazilians’ victory, because they play “beautiful. ” And because the 2006 World Cup is already in Germany’s pocket. Rafael, BrazilJeff Green is a moron and a traitor to the U. ! Kahn sucks; he’s just been lucky playing against a bunch of half-assed teams with no offense.

Turkey's only losses here were to Brazil, which was to meet Germany in Sunday's championship match at Yokohama, Japan. The team's performance here will give much hope back home that it has the talent to become a World Cup regular. “With our football I believe we have created an impact and we brought color into the World Cup,” coach Senol Gunes said. “We saw no teams superior to us. “We relished the challenge and we played to win. Our mission was to develop (our) football and we did that… Germany is like a second home for Turks, where 2. 8 million live and work. But the Turks know if they qualify for the 2006 World Cup, they will feel even more pressure. “Next time, our job will be more difficult,” Gunes said. All rights reserved.

US take huge strides forward
BBC News – Jun 27, 2002
Instead, that honour will now go to the United States. Qualification for Germany 2006 would mean five consecutive appearances in the finals for the US, an achievement unprecedented in Concacaf history. Secondly, World Cup 2002 finally showed the planet that the US are capable of playing quality football at the highest level. With a sports-obsessed population rapidly approaching 300 million, the United States can now truly lay claim to being correctly identified as an emerging football nation. Fourth-place finishes at the last world under-17 championships and Olympic Games, combined with an appearance in the last eight at World Cup 2002 make this point all but irrefutable.

Blatter rules out video aid
BBC News – Jun 27, 2002
“These are essential things in our game. “Blatter has just been re-elected as Fifa president so his announcement appears to rule out the use of any technology at the 2006 World Cup. He swept aside suggestions that the correct decision was more important than the human element, which means future mistakes are inevitable. “We have conducted some experiments using electronic devices to control a match and they were very destructive,” he said. “You would have an instance where a referee made a decision and then had to go back and change it. “You would have 50,000 people in the stadium seeing this.

Back to business (not) as usual
Asia Times Online – Jun 27, 2002
But of course Guus Hiddink won’t be a presidential candidate: that honor falls on the all-powerful Chung Mon-joon. South Korea’s outstanding soccer success developed exactly as Chung had planned. He wears, among others, many crucial hats: head of the Korean Football Association, vice president of the world soccer controlling body Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), president of the organizing committee of the World Cup, a member of parliament and, crucially, the son of the founder of the mega-conglomerate Hyundai, a key World Cup sponsor. Chung is extremely popular because Koreans identify him as the man who enabled the country definitely to bury the memories of the 1997 Asian financial crisis and regain its pride – not only by co-staging the World Cup with amazing success, but by the unexpected and astonishing success of the Red Devils themselves, written off as virtual no-hopers before the tournament. There have been many allegations, especially in the Italian and Spanish press, that Chung had a “hand of god” in the extremely controversial refereeing decisions that ultimately contributed to the elimination of Italy and Spain from the World Cup at the hands of the Koreans. South Korea may have been a full-fledged democracy since the end of the 1980s, but corruption is still endemic, involving politicians, businessmen and former presidents. FIFA president Sepp Blatter, though, has dismissed the European allegations as pure nonsense… Hi-Five stands for hardiness, impartiality, fundamentals, innovation and value-sharing and expertise. As Hiddink hi-fived the Red Devils into footballing fame, Chung Mon-joon is dreaming of hi-fiving an energized country into lasting prosperity. And why not a rematch against the hosts in the 2006 World Cup in Germany?

Turkey claim third place
Telegraph.co.uk – Jun 29, 2002
But throughout this World Cup the South Korean football team have brought untold joy to the nation, and this was no time to be different. It was just a pity they could not deliver a closing victory. But without it yesterday, easily the best part of 63,483 people would not have been able to say a proper thank you to their team and their beloved coach, Guus Hiddink – the semi-final defeat to Germany was just a little too painful for that… Less of a “defeat” it would be harder to imagine. The Dutchman, who was losing his second consecutive third-place play-off match, having lost to Croatia at France 98 when he was Holland’s manager, now heads back to club management, having done more than any international coach could have dreamed of with a supposedly third-rate nation. The Korean players have been in Hiddink’s sole care since January, but even that does not wholly explain the giant leap forward they have made which must surely have guaranteed Asia a third automatic qualification place at the 2006 finals. Hiddink knows a continuation of that sort of idyllic working relationship would not be possible after the co-hosting of this World Cup, with several of these Koreans heading for European pastures. “What I like very much – and it’s not a secret – is doing what I’ve done for the last six months, working on a daily basis with players,” he said. “It gives me a lot of satisfaction and I would like to continue in that way. I like to be on the pitch every day with players and that could be at a club.

After all, the game was at the ungodly hour of 7 a. , and we faced a two-hour drive just to watch the game on a big screen in an old football stadium. Still, it took all of 10 seconds for me to agree to the trip. After a quick phone call to a friend who was working late that night anyway, we had a suitable traveling party. Despite an ill-advised decision to spend Thursday night at the Biltmore instead of in bed, we were off to Washington with flags flying. After all, someone had to be there to support the team… Countess should help lessen the blow if Friedel decides to end his international career. Regardless of the makeup of the 2006 United States World Cup team – assuming the Yanks make it through qualifying in an improving CONCACAF group – the results from Korea have been nothing but encouraging. Ignoring the fact that the team laid an egg against Poland and needed help from South Korea just to make it out of group play, the upstart Americans seized their opportunity to prove themselves on their sport’s biggest stage. If not for the otherworldly play of German goalkeeper Oliver Kahn, the U. could very well be in the finals.

German leader scores free flight
BBC News – Jun 27, 2002
Mr Koizumi and Mr Schroeder will leave on Friday, arriving in Tokyo on Saturday. Mr Schroeder, who is facing an election later this year, will be hoping for a German win to boost his fortunes. No German Government has ever lost an election after the
football team won the World Cup or the European Championship. Plane row

But the chartering of a plane at taxpayers’ expense to fly German politicians – including Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer and Interior
Minister Otto Schily – to the final has led to criticism in Germany. Sensing an opportunity for political capital, Mr Schroeder’s conservative opponent in September’s election, Edmund Stoiber, announced he would travel to Japan for the game at his own expense. Mr Koizumi, Emperor Akihito and South Korean President Kim
Dae-jung will also be at the final. The World
Cup, the first to be held in Asia, is being co-hosted by
South Korea.

The Germans, who will host the next World Cup in 2006, needed to win a playoff against Ukraine just to reach the finals in South Korea and Japan. Their performances have been efficient but far from impressive on their way to the final. Beckenbauer, who captained the Germans to their 1974 World Cup triumph and coached the 1990-winning team, slammed their 1-0 quarterfinal win over the United States as “inadequate. But in an interview with Reuters on Thursday, he said: “I amvery happy with the way the German team has developed. It has been great work… “I think it will be a great final on Sunday, ” he said. “Both teams are in shape. The Brazilians are playing excellent football. Beckenbauer said he was disappointed by England’s failure to stop Brazil from making their way to the final stages of the World Cup. Beckenbauer agreed with coach Sven-Goran Eriksson’s view thata poor second half in last Friday’s quarterfinal, during whichthe Brazilians were reduced to 10 men, cost the English dearly. But he stressed that no other team had faced such a tough schedule as the English whose hopes were high after a group 1-0 win over Argentina. “With England, you have to say one thing.

“It’s not a miracle.

Kahn will captain Germany in Sunday’s final, as Ballack, despite scoring his country’s semifinal winner, will miss the game due to suspension. Germany’s opponents Brazil have four players nominated for the Golden Ball in Roberto Carlos, Rivaldo, Ronaldo, and Ronaldinho. The nominees were announced at the International Media Center in Yokohama by the President of Germany’s 2006 World Cup organizing committee, Franz Beckenbauer, France’s 1998 World Cup winning coach Aimé Jaquet and Carlos Alberto Perreira, who steered Brazil to victory at USA ’94.

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.
