However, while Nigeria’s Super Eagles have managed to stay in touch with the cream of African football, the Atlas Lions have wobbled from one major set-back to another.

Krankl has reason to believe
uefa.com – UEFA.com – Jan 26, 2004
Here he discusses the past, present and future of Austrian football. com: Austria came third at the FIFA World Cup in 1954, the year UEFA was formed. Why has Austrian football been unable to maintain those standards?
Hans Krankl: The traditional strength of Austrian football has been our elegant, technically gifted style, but in the last 15 or 20 years we turned away from this and focused on the German way with an emphasis on athleticism and physique. We neglected the technical and tactical aspects. I want to go down a different path and focus on technique and tactics, especially with young players… What are your visions for the future?
Krankl: I have clear aims which I am working to realise. I signed a new two-year contract that runs until the end of the FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign. Playing in the 2006 World Cup would be the ideal preparation for hosting UEFA EURO 2008™, giving my young side valuable experience. It’s my dream to be in charge when Austria stages the UEFA European Championship – and to have a competitive team. com: Austria’s Under-17 and Under-19 squads came third in their respective UEFA European Championships in 2003. Were these results unexpected?
Krankl: I wasn’t surprised because I know the excellent work being done to develop young Austrian talent.

World Cup set for 2008
BBC News – Jan 26, 2004
The event would form part of celebrations to mark the centenary of the game in the southern hemisphere. The last World Cup, won by Australia, was staged in Britain in 2000. “Given the progress being made, we are extremely optimistic about the World up,” said Rugby League International Federation chairman Colin Love. “There’s plenty of talent outside Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand. ”

The RLIF also confirmed this year’s Tri-Nations Series involving Australia, New Zealand and hosts Great Britain, although no dates or venues have been announced. The teams will play each other twice at the end of the season, with the winners meeting in the final, provisionally arranged for 20 November… ”

sports?a 14-page edition filled with six pages of coverage of Super Bowl
football, still a week away. With the exception of Outdoor Life?s ongoing World

Jamaica to host Uruguay in friendly
Caribbean Net News: Jamaica – Jan 27, 2004
Caribbean Net News Reprinted from Caribbean Net News caribbeannetnews. com Jamaica to host Uruguay in friendly Tuesday, January 27, 2004 KINGSTON, Jamaica (AFP): Jamaica will launch their preparations for the 2006 World Cup qualifying campaign with a friendly against Uruguay on February 18, the Jamaica Football Federation said. Originally the JFF had sought to tie up China and then the Republic of Ireland for the FIFA-sanctioned date. But China pulled out and requested that a later date be set. And when it appeared that Ireland were going to fill the slot, the Irish dumped Jamaica for a more high-profile opponent – Brazil. “We had first wanted to play Ireland on this date, but they decided to play Brazil, so we had to seek another opponent in Uruguay who are now 21 in the FIFA rankings, so we are quite satisfied and pleased with this arrangement,” JFF’s acting general secretary, Burchell Gibson said.

BBC SPORT | Golf | Davies eyes historic feat
BBC News – Jan 28, 2004
The former world number one has been overshadowed as one of women’s golf’s biggest stars since the formidable Swede took a stranglehold on the game. But the Briton could accomplish something not even the hugely successful Sorenstam has managed if she reaches the last two rounds in Australia. LPGA Hall of Famer Sorenstam missed the cut in the Colonial tournament on the men’s US Tour last year after becoming the first woman to compete against the men in 58 years. She was followed by Suzy Whaley and Hawaii’s 14-year-old prodigy Michelle Wie, who also missed cuts in men’s events. Davies, too, fell short in the men’s Korean Open last October, but the stableford format – where points are accumulated at each hole according to the player’s score – could suit her game next month… Davies became the first British winner of the US Women’s Open when she clinched a play-off at Plainfield, New Jersey in 1987. Shortly after, she joined the Ladies PGA Tour in America and has since limited her European appearances to a handful of events each year. In 1994 she was the first European player to be ranked world number one and in 1996 named US Player of the Year. So far, she has won 20 tournaments on the LPGA Tour and over 60 in all, including four majors – US Women’s Open (1987), McDonald’s LPGA Championship (1994, 1996), du Maurier Classic (1996).

Woodward up against O’Sullivan for Lions post
Sunday Times – The Sunday Times – Jan 28, 2004
The pair are the only two candidates officially nominated to take charge of the ten-match tour. The Lions committee, with representatives from each of the home unions, will not only question both men about their vision for the tour, in June and July of next year, but also hear presentations from the two coaches. It had been reported that Woodward would only agree to the role if he could take his World Cup-winning backroom team with him, but the political nature of the Lions and the need for a representative balance mean that he and O’Sullivan could end up working together. A decision on who manages the tour will also be taken on Tuesday. The two contenders are Bill Beaumont, of England, and Dougie Morgan, from Scotland. Because Beaumont is also the chairman of the Lions, a sub-committee has been set up to interview him and Morgan, who recently retired as Scotland manager.

Wells did get into three games while he was with the Oakland A’s. Then, with the Chicago Wholesale China Jerseys White Sox, he played in 37 games most famously appearing as a relief pitcher in a game against Cleveland. The White Sox were outscored 19 10 and didn’t want to waste another of the team’s relievers in the top of the ninth inning. Wells, unlike the Chicago pitchers before him, held the Indians scoreless during his brief time on the mound.You have the dots and you have the arrows, the dots is where people setup, this is called a setup area where you get ready to go and bowl, so this is the approach. So standing on the approach, each dot is 5 boards, so if you wanted to stand 20 you would be standing right here on the middle dot because you have 10 boards from the ball return and yet each one after that is 5 boards.
