There are nine matches across Africa, with action in four out of the five groups. In Group One, Senegal, who reached the 2002 World Cup quarter-finals, have several key players missing as they take on Congo at home. In the same group, friends Kalusha Bwalya and Stephen Keshi face each other as they lead out Zambia and Togo in Lusaka respectively. Group Two’s big game could be Uganda against the DR Congo given the two countries past political history… The other games on Saturday in the group see South Africa taking on the Cape Verde Islands in Bloemfontein and Burkina Faso hosting Ghana in Ouagadougou. All of Group Three’s opening matches are on Sunday. In Group Four, one of the traditional giants of African football, Nigeria take on the fast improving Rwanda. Also playing in the group are Gabon facing Zimbabwe in Libreville. Group Five faces an uncertain future after Fifa imposed and indefinite ban on Kenya. Guinea, who were already in Nairobi when the ban was imposed, have already returned home.

The Azingo Nationale took the lead eight minutes into the second half, when Thierry Issiemou fired home. The home side, who are coached by Brazil’s 1970 World Cup-winning striker Jairzinho, were then content to protect their slender advantage. However, Zimbabwe, coached by Rahman Gumbo following last week’s resignation of Sunday Marimo, struck an important equaliser late on through Shingayi Kaondera. The Cyprus-based forward punished Gabon’s negative tactics with just five minutes to go when he beat the offside trap, rounded the goalkeeper and slotted home from a tight angle.

BBC News – Jun 6, 2004
It was in the same Algerian city on 16 June 2000 that Senegal began their road to the 2002 World Cup when they took the lead before drawing 1-1 with the Algerians. The Lions of Teranga went on to contest the final of the 2002 Cup of Nations, which they lost on penalties, and then reached the quarter-finals of that year’s World Cup finals in South Korea and Japan. With the same pace, skill and dynamism as the Senegalese, Angola are poised to do the same to qualify for the 2006 World Cup in Germany and the Nations Cup in Egypt the same year.

The Eagles were beaten by a 78th-minute goal from Alvin Kieh, which followed a spell of intense Liberian pressure towards the end of the tie. Anthony Laffor had spurned an opportunity to give the Lone Star the lead on the hourmark when he scuffed a shot towards the Mali goal from a well-placed position. Earlier in the half, Dramane Traore almost gave Mali the lead but the Eagles striker struck the side-netting from ten yards out. Liberia’s Frank Seator had the ball in the back of the next shortly before half-time, but the goal was disallowed for James Debbah’s foul on the Malian keeper.

SA want Baron suspended
BBC News – Jun 4, 2004

The South African Football Association asked Fifa to stop him playing for Lillestrom in their Norwegian league match against Stabaek on Monday. South Africa coach Stuart Baxter criticised both the club and player. The English coach said Baron should have shown more determination to seek his release for Saturday’s game in Bloemfontein… The goalkeeper was meant to be part of Bafana Bafana’s squad that is to play the Cape Verde Islands on Saturday. The South African Football Association asked Fifa to stop him playing for Lillestrom in their Norwegian league match against Stabaek on Monday. South Africa coach Stuart Baxter criticised both the club and player. The English coach said Baron should have shown more determination to seek his release for Saturday’s game in Bloemfontein. “The club is at fault here but players can’t always hide behind this; they too must show that they want to play for their country,” he said. South Africa said they had asked Fifa to intercede after the club refused to release Baron earlier this week.

Boxhill … the biggest disappointment is that we didn’t qualify…
Jamaica Observer – Jun 5, 2004
He described the Under-23s’ failure to qualify for the Olympic Games as the lowest point. A major issue during his election campaign was youth development and although nothing has yet been realised in that regard, the gentle-mannered Boxhill declared that within three months the seeds of his labour will begin to bear fruit. The president, without elaborating, hinted that the Football Academy, to be funded by FIFA, would be moved from its planned Portmore location to a venue still to be decided. He also wants the local National Premier League restructured. Jamaica Observer (JO): President you have been head of the JFF for just over six months, how has your tenure been thus far?
Crenston Boxhill: It has been very challenging taking over an organisation like the JFF without funds and with the kind of work that is to be done. That alone in itself almost spelled disaster, but fortunately for us, and like I’ve always said, it is a team effort, and we have a very strong, knowledgeable and experienced team in place and together I think we have been able to accomplish six months of a job fairly well done. When you look at the preparation we have given to our teams that were in competition, starting with the Olympic squad, even though the performance they gave was not what we were expecting, but in terms of preparing for the games, I thought we did reasonably well… In fact, that academy is rated as one of the best in Europe, and from our discussion, he is prepared to assist us, hopefully, starting this summer, with some of our young players and coaches spending the summer here, on an annual basis. We are also having the same sort of discussion with Newcastle United, whose coach I met when we participated in the Under-20 tournament in Germany recently. JO: Often times success of a federation is measured by the success of its national senior team, would you consider your administration a failure if the Reggae Boyz failed to make the Germany 2006 World Cup Finals?
It depends on how you look at it, but personally I don’t think that should be so. Don’t get me wrong, like any other Jamaican, the greatest thing that can happen to our country now is for us to qualify for the World Cup Finals in Germany and I can assure you that under my leadership the federation will be doing everything possible to achieve it. But having said that, it is important to know that the programme doesn’t stop there, and that is why we keep emphasising the grassroots, the youth programme. And even if we qualify this time, we don’t want to have to hope and pray that the next four, eight or 12 years we might qualify again. We want to put a programme in place which will give us a realistic chance of qualifying on a consistent basis and that is why it is so important that the National Youth Programme that we are talking about be implemented.

It’s a Ronaldo show, indeed
Hindu – Jun 4, 2004
The five-time World Cup champion Brazil got three penalties from Ronaldo to edge two-time champion Argentina 3-1 on Thursday to move to the top of the 10-team South American football standings. Australia crushed Fiji 6-1 to remain perfect through three matches and close in on clinching one of the top two spots in the six-team group, which guarantees a playoff for the right to represent Oceania against the fifth-placed team from South America.

‘QUIET MAN’ SANTINI CHARGED WITH SPURS REVIVAL
4TheGame – Jun 4, 2004
let us play! NEWS STORY ‘QUIET MAN’ SANTINI CHARGED WITH SPURS REVIVAL Friday 04 Jun 2004 Those who have known him a long time describe Jacques Santini as a quiet man who is reluctant to take even a glimmer of the spotlight away from his players. And yet the France coach, who will take over at Tottenham at the beginning of July after reaching an agreement to join the Premiership club today, is as ruthless as they come in football management, and he has been forced to flex his muscles of authority to get France back on the right track after the misery of the World Cup in 2002. Those qualities will be required when he takes over at White Hart Lane and attempts to drag Spurs out of their current malaise and state of under-achievement in English domestic football. When Santini was appointed as a replacement for Roger Lemerre almost two years ago, his task looked to be one of long-term restructuring after France’s defence of their World Cup trophy went disastrously wrong. But he has been an instant hit, and the results prove it. Now, as the French bid to become the first ever team to successfully defend a European Championship title, Santini is in charge of the stand-out favourites… Once this summer’s finals draw to a close, Santini will turn his attention to his new task in the Premiership. He has often hinted that he would like to move to England, and Tottenham must be complimented for tempting him away from one of the most prestigious jobs in international football. The FFF wanted him to stay until 2006, but just in case the French flop again this summer, they were holding fire on delivering a new contract. Perhaps that decision to hedge their bets was what pushed Santini towards north London, where he will be the latest coach to put his reputation on reviving Tottenham.

Morocco threat sends Mandela into action
Telegraph.co.uk – Jun 5, 2004
Such visits by the great and good would be unremarkable except that the reason for Mandela’s trip was to make sure that South Africa win the right to stage the 2010 World Cup. FIFA have already decided that the event must be held on the African continent and when the race opened a year ago South Africa, who had lost the right to host the World Cup in 2006 by just one vote to Germany, seemed a shoo-in. But in the last few months… One executive member I spoke to said: “The technical report is a guide. Members look at it but that is not the sole basis for the vote. “Nobody doubts that South Africa, the biggest economy in Africa, who have hosted the rugby and cricket World Cups, can stage the football event. However, Morocco have cleverly presented themselves as being the best Africa location for European teams and also played on their Arab heritage. The argument is that backing Morocco would not only mean them staging the first African World Cup, but also the first Arab one. Morocco have the important support of Mohammed Bin Hammam, the FIFA executive member from Qatar, who has promised large sums of money from the Middle East to build the necessary infrastructure.

BBC SPORT | Tennis | Argentina hails ‘musketeers’
BBC News – Jun 5, 2004
In a week when the country’s football team suffered a 3-1 defeat to arch rivals Brazil, the nation has been only too glad to embrace the achievements of Guillermo Coria, Gaston Gaudio, David Nalbandian and Paola Suarez. “Tennis is what matters,” was the headline in the Argentine daily Ole after the pain of Brazil’s World Cup qualifier victory was overshadowed by all four reaching the semi-final stages in Paris. “Gaston Gaudio cries and Argentina is overwhelmed,” said daily La Nacion. “Those tears will bathe centre court at Roland Garros forever. “They have made history. ”
