Mixed feelings as local coaches await Lazaroni’s return
Jamaica Observer – Jul 17, 2004
and we play more defensive football, so if he carries a system of play to us and we learn how to play the system, it can pay off,” the Arnett coach said. Santos’ Carlton ‘Spanner’ Dennis would be contented if Lazaroni qualifies the team to the 2006 World Cup Finals in Germany: “If he (Lazaroni) can take us to the World Cup I have no problem, but I only hope that it works out because if it doesn’t we are going to have problems all over again. “Dennis said he will be holding his breath and watching to see what happens. “From what I read in the papers, the president had spoken to coach Brown and he was in agreement for it. I don’t know and I don’t want to comment on something I know nothing about. “So I’ll just watch what happens and see if it works out for the betterment of our football.

Baxter keeping his eye on 2010 goal post
Independent Online – Jul 17, 2004
On the face of it, his looks like a thankless task, yet the challenge is irresistible: to lay the foundation for a team to emerge that will transform an enigmatic soccer nation into the proud and confident hosts of a World Cup in six years time. Right now, South Africa is without both. Bafana coach says development of players crucial for World Cup
Baxter is on a two-year contract until after the 2006 World Cup in Germany but he sees his role far
differently. “Whatever I am doing now is with a view to 2010. I could say, ‘sod everyone, I’m only here till 2006 so I don’t give a tinker’s cuss what happens after that’… Bafana coach says development of players crucial for World Cup
Baxter is on a two-year contract until after the 2006 World Cup in Germany but he sees his role far
differently. “Whatever I am doing now is with a view to 2010. I could say, ‘sod everyone, I’m only here till 2006 so I don’t give a tinker’s cuss what happens after that’. But no, I can see how much 2010 means to South Africans. I was in Zurich (when the 2010 World Cup was awarded by Fifa) and I saw the emotions. It would be very selfish of me, and grossly unprofessional, if I didn’t put down developmental plans now. “With 2010 a huge carrot, the window of opportunity for South Africa is becoming more and more evident, but the chance we have now (to develop the right combination of players) won’t last forever.

“It will be very difficult to announce it after the
tournament. “We have our reason. Even the FIFA World Cup champion will have to compete in
the qualifying tournament to get a ticket to play the 2006 World Cup finals in
Germany,” he added. FIFA decided during the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan that the
champions’ automatic ticket to the World Cup finals would be
deprived.

Six candidates, including the former France international Jean Tigana, have applied for the position. But the technical committee, which sat in Abuja, decided they had to look at additional applications before they could make a choice. “The technical committee said they could not make a decision based on the applications they have received so far,” NFA chairman Ibrahim Galadima told BBC Sport on Friday. “They are planning to have another meeting on Wednesday or Thursday next week for further deliberations… “If we had our way last year, Bryan Robson would have been the manager of the national team and this matter would not have been an issue by this time. “But the sports minister’s refusal to sanction that appointment has contributed to the situation in which the FA finds itself,” Galadima said. Besides the selection of a new foreign manager, the NFA is yet to renew the contract of incumbent boss Christian Chukwu, whose tenure runs out next month.

Daily Express – Jul 16, 2004

Bahrain are a rapidly improving team, a fact recognised by being the best mover in the Fifa world rankings in 2003. They also finished runners-up to Saudi Arabia at the last edition of the Gulf Cup and are top of their 2006 World Cup qualifying group. Juricic knows his team face a formidable challenge against the host nation but insists the Bahrainis are champing at the bit to get started. “Waiting is the worst part. The team would prefer to be playing as soon as possible,” said Juricic. “It’s going to be a very demanding match.

The 2003 Masters champion moved from four under to six under after eight solid holes. But, seeking to pull off a few more birdies, he risked too much and dropped shots at the ninth and 10th.

BBC News – Jul 18, 2004
But it’s always good to finish a tournament with a good round. ”
