Farina targets 2006
BBC News – Feb 10, 2003
The Socceroos’ last two qualifying campaigns have seen Australia tumble at the last hurdle, first against Iran and then against Uruguay. “For us it’s our first real hit out in 14 months,” Farina told this website ahead of the game at Upton Park. “This is our start to the 2006 World Cup campaign. “For me the most important thing about the game is to find out where we. “Hopefully we will perform well against arguably one of the best teams in the world. ”

Farina attributes Australia’s defeat against Uruguay to the South American’s superior mental preparation thanks to that continent’s intensive series of qualifiers. “We had two games in four years… ”

Before turning to coaching Farina played for the Socceroos and he maintains that modern players still remain committed to international football, despite the demands of club football. “I think the passion is still exactly the same. The demands in terms of club football have increased dramatically since I was playing. “Players are playing three games a week and the money involved in the game has increased. “With that you have increased pressures on all fronts be it on managers or players. “When you have the financial situation in club football, you can’t blame the clubs for putting so much demands and expectation on players. “International and club managers both have their own jobs and you expect to get what we you want, but sometimes the two will clash.

But to the surprise of some, there is another one happening right now. And Germany is doing rather well in it… According to the 2001 DFB statistics, there are 841,817 registered female players in Germany. Women’s soccer is, indeed, stronger than generally believed (at least by men!). So, for soccer junkies who can’t wait until football comes home in 2006, a little appreciative, manly support should be offered in the direction of Germany’s women as they contest the world’s best for the pride of their nation.

Australian defender Lucas Neill

The Socceroos last qualified for the World Cup in 1974. However, qualification for the 2006 tournament will see Oceania gain direct entry to the finals in Germany, with Australia now strong favourites to represent the region.

SA hopes cricket can boost 2010 chances
Independent Online – Feb 11, 2003
Irvin Khoza, chairman of South Africa’s 2010 bid committee, said he was confident the cricketing spectacle would prove both the organisational capacity of the country and that it was a safe place to host the soccer World Cup. “One of the big problems we had when bidding for the 2006 World Cup was the perception that South Africa was unsafe for visitors and the crime rate was out of control,” Khoza said. “I’m confident this cricket event is going to show that the country is perfectly safe for visitors. The high rate of tourism is already showing this to be the case… South Africa are bidding against Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia. The hosts for the 2010 World Cup will be decided next year. “The cricket World Cup also shows the great capacity we have, both in terms of infra structure and in terms of our organisational capacity,” Khoza said. “It has also shown that fears over ticket sales are unfounded.
