South Africa ready for the challenge
BBC News – Feb 4, 2003
The race to host the World Cup in 2010 is provoking a huge response from World Football listeners. We spoke to Segun Odegbami, the head of the Nigerian bid, a couple of weeks ago and his interview is still drawing your comments. Kevin Afe in Nigeria says the country should sort out its problems at home before it thinks about staging the event. Shehu Yusuf, also in Nigeria, admires Segun Odegbami’s patriotism, but believes that the man must know the plan is doomed to failure because Nigeria can’t match the organisational skills of the other bidding nations. Oseme in Morocco writes that the North should unite behind one bid to beat South Africa.

German soccer legend Franz Beckenbauer has threatened to step down as president of Germany’s 2006 World Cup organizing committee over a dispute with FIFA one day before its executive body meeting in Zurich.

Developers finally began the laborious process of pulling down Wembley’s twin towers today – but the famous landmarks were putting up a struggle against their demolition. After a ceremony to celebrate the past and future of the stadium, a giantcrane nicknamed Goliath struggled to break into the west tower’s masonry and work will continue over the weekend. Only by early next week will the last vestiges of the stadium which hosted the1966 World Cup final have been completely removed. Football Association spokesman Nick Barron explained that the towers could notbe blown up with explosives to protect the local environment and due to pledgesto recycle all materials. ‘It will take all weekend and into early next week but this is a constructionproject and we have to do things by the book,’ he said. The end was nevertheless still near, with the FA having concluded that itwould be at best overly expensive and at worst impossible to remove the hollowconcrete towers in one piece. World Cup winner George Cohen declared: ‘The towers were a beacon for Englishfootball recognised all over the world and I suppose for some people it will bean emotional moment when they go.

England cause needs calm
Telegraph.co.uk – Feb 6, 2003
Each was English, thrown out by police for screaming abuse at Italians. Attention tonight switches to the Walker’s Stadium for the friendly visit of Serbia and Montenegro, England’s first home game since the hooligan-scarred Euro 2004 qualifier against Turkey. Most eyes will be on the football, on the sight of Matthew Upson making his first international start, on Phil Neville anchoring midfield, Frank Lampard tucking in on the left and seeking to release Michael Owen and Emile Heskey. Other eyes, those belonging to security hawks and anxious FA officials, will be watching for any malevolent movement off the field, following that noxious night at the Stadium of Light which resulted in scores of arrests, a £75,000 fine and a final warning from UEFA, the governing body of European football, that another outbreak of hooliganism would lead to England being barred from Euro 2004… David Beckham was first up, pleading in a pre-recorded broadcast for an end to racist chants, booing opponents’ national anthems and pitch invasions. Then came Owen, captain in Beckham’s absence, who broke off from training to voice his alarm that all the team’s “hard work” in seizing the initiative from Turkey in Group 7 could be “ruined” by the fans. “We have a great chance of winning Euro 2004 and we will be at our absolute peak at the World Cup [of 2006],” said Owen, 23. “It would be awful to think we had the best team in the world and to then have everything spoiled by the fans. The players have a small part to play as well. Hopefully we will score but then we won’t run off jumping into the crowd. “Before they leave the dressing-room, Owen will remind every player of the need to conduct themselves appropriately.

How to lose two pounds in a week. This is my favorite subject. Why? Because it is safe and it is effective. Hi my name is Jani Roberts.

Too much soap or detergent can be overkill and can take forever to wash off, while too little soap or detergent http://www.cheapnfljerseyssu.com can be ineffective at breaking http://www.cheapjerseysselling.com down the dirt and mud stains.

This is due in large part to the free trial, better navigation, community ratings and superior discovery solved by Apple in their store. What Replica Oakleys this means for developers is that if they release a title with a strong concept and solid production values even if it doesn’t http://www.cheapjordan13.com have a known brand associated with it and they market it well, they can have a hit and make money.” Makes sense to me.
