However, the rematch between the surprise UEFA EURO 2004™ winners and their semi-final victims in Prague stands out as the pick of this week’s warm-up matches ahead of the 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. Revenge missionGreece stunned the Czechs last month in Porto thanks to a Traianos Dellas silver goal and Karel Brückner’s side, who produced some of the most entertaining football in Portugal, are sure to be out to exact a modicum of vengeance. That point has not been lost on victorious Greek coach Otto Rehhagel, who said: “The Czechs are very strong opponents and they’ll want their revenge after their defeat in the European Championship semi-final. ” Minimal changesApart from the injured Dellas and Themistoklis Nikolaidis, who has retired, the squad is made up entirely of EURO 2004™ winners and includes Vassilios Tsiartas despite his public criticism of Rehhagel for not giving him enough playing time. “We want to try some new things without Dellas… The team for the qualifiers will be 95 per cent the same as the one at the EURO,” Rehhagel said ahead of his squad’s first outing since winning the final. “Down the line we will make some changes. ” Olympic dividendThe Portuguese success has heralded many changes in Greek football and society, not least among the fans, who are showing a newfound interest in a national team, whose fortunes were previously overshadowed by club concerns. Indeed, organisers of the Olympic Games, currently taking place in Athens, were overjoyed this week as ticket sales for Greece’s Olympic football tournament matches went through the roof. Great expectationsThe new realities are not lost on Rehhagel and his men who know that expectations are much higher now for Europe’s new football champions. “It is a new situation. We are now considered favourites,” Rehhagel said.

Although Real Madrid ended a miserable season without a trophy, Figo was the only one of the club’s so-called ‘galacticos’ to emerge with an enhanced reputation. He no longer possesses the stunning change of pace but he retains an exquisite touch and has developed a street-wise determination that has proved invaluable to the Real cause. The news of international retirement will sadden many of his Portuguese fans but Real will be delighted that the winger has decided to conserve his energies and concentrate on helping his club get back to winning ways. Portugal begin their qualifying campaign for the 2006 World Cup when they travel to Latvia on September 4. fan_198108-19-2004, 12:32 AMJust noticed Shemruni’s thread!

Tough Tyne for Dyer
BBC News – Aug 19, 2004
But in the end, it was the home-town boy who took the stick. Eriksson was cleared of any wrong-doing by the Football Association following his much publicised affair with secretary Faria Alam. But how would he be judged by a jury of 35,387 supporters as England got preparations for their 2006 World Cup qualifying campaign under way?

On a stormy night in Newcastle, Eriksson’s appearance pitch-side during the pre-match warm-up did not come close to registering on the Richter scale. Instead it was Kieron Dyer who felt the full force of the St James’ Park hurricane. When Dyer’s name was announced as one of England’s substitutes prior to kick-off it was met by a chorus of jeers… But in the end, it was the home-town boy who took the stick.

It was noticable that much of England’s good attacking play went through Wright-Phillips or Beckham, and the eye-catching Glenn Johnson down the right hand side. When the stakes are higher, it is unlikely that Wright-Phillips and Johnson will be given an opportunity to team up again down that flank, owing to their general apathy towards defensive duties. With a World Cup qualifying group that contains mouth-watering all-British ties with Wales and Northern Ireland, aswell as Austria, Poland and Azerbaijan, England should have more than enough to make it to Germany for the 2006 World Cup. More performances like this one against Ukraine might just ensure that Sven makes it too… It was noticable that much of England’s good attacking play went through Wright-Phillips or Beckham, and the eye-catching Glenn Johnson down the right hand side.

Every time you go into a fight, somebody’s trying to takeyour head off, crush your dreams. ” Dancing across the ring and scoring points with both hands, Wardwrapped up an unremarkable fight by coasting through the fourthround — perhaps saving his energy for his next bout. On Tuesday, Ward will fight two-time world champion Makarenkofor a berth in the semifinals and a guaranteed medal. Makarenkoowns a 6-inch height advantage on Ward, as well as nearly nineyears of experience in the amateur style.

Brazil shows class with visit to Haiti
SI.com – Aug 20, 2004
Brazil have been highly praised for playing there along with some of their biggest names, like Ronaldo and Roberto Carlos of Real Madrid and Ronaldinho of Barcelona. Billed as the ‘Peace Match’, it was aimed at promoting harmony among the warring factions and arranged on the initiative of the United Nations, FIFA and the Brazilian government, whose troops lead the UN peacekeeping force after civil unrest left many dead. In Haiti, once established as one of the football giants in the Caribbean with their qualification for the 1974 World Cup in West Germany, soccer has been a casualty of the political upheaval faced by the nation over the last year. The FIFA-funded Haitian Football Federation headquarters and technical training centre, inaugurated in April 2002, was left looted and destroyed following the civil unrest. In May, FIFA’s Finance Committee donated $200,000 from its Humanitarian Fund to restore the facilities. RONALDINHO MAGICWednesday’s match was part of the restoration process and attracted a capacity 15,000 crowd. It was played on a newly-laid artificial pitch… It’s a demonstration of the universality of our sport. “In the year of FIFA’s Centennial celebrations, we are proud to see the Fair Play Family making a difference with their support of the United Nations Stabilisation Mission in Haiti. “We can clearly see that the game of the people truly makes a positive impact on the world — let us make goals, not war!”Haiti have already been eliminated from the 2006 World Cup after losing in an early qualifying round to Jamaica so they won’t be making a return trip to Germany for the finals. But at least they got to see the world champions play and, who knows, perhaps the Brazilians took something from the match that will help them retain the world title in two years’ time.
