Calcutta Telegraph – Aug 27, 2004
And short of a miracle, Team India will end up second best at Yuba Bharati Krirangan (Salt Lake stadium) on September 8. But not before Calcutta plays host to a mini Japanese invasion. Fourteen hundred and counting? The second leg of the pre-World Cup football qualifier between India and Japan will witness an army of Japanese fans touching down in town to cheer the 22-strong national squad, headed by coach Zico, the Brazilian legend. Adding to the Nippon numbers will be a media team of 60-plus. ?I think this is the biggest football event to happen in Calcutta,? said Indian Football Association (IFA) honorary secretary Subrata Datta, adding that he had received ?firm requests? for more than 800 tickets from Japanese soccer fans, with the number growing every day. Travel agencies in town confirmed that the collective ranks of the overseas visitors had swelled to almost double that number. The score-line read 7-0 in favour of Japan when the two teams last met in Saitama for the Asian Zone qualifiers of the World Cup 2006… ?I think this is the biggest football event to happen in Calcutta,? said Indian Football Association (IFA) honorary secretary Subrata Datta, adding that he had received ?firm requests? for more than 800 tickets from Japanese soccer fans, with the number growing every day.

The score-line read 7-0 in favour of Japan when the two teams last met in Saitama for the Asian Zone qualifiers of the World Cup 2006. But the second leg has evoked interest enough in skipper Bhaichung Bhutia?s base for it to be marketed as a major event to boost the Incredible India tourism campaign. Last year, in-bound tourists from Japan had jumped around 24 per cent from the previous year. ?We already have 200-plus bookings for the match, with many more coming through,? said B.

Although the pair was new to the Olympics and never had a topthree finish in the world championships, their success was notunprecedented. They won their first World Cup race this summer inGermany.

England World Cup alert
Telegraph.co.uk – Aug 29, 2004
Sven-Goran Eriksson’s right-hand man, Tord Grip, even suggested that “four points would be a good return” from the trips to Vienna and Katowice. England fans will demand two victories. The squad named by Eriksson last night was largely as anticipated, including confirmation that Alan Smith, Jermain Defoe and Darius Vassell have moved ahead of Emile Heskey in the pecking order of Michael Owen’s prospective attacking partners during Wayne Rooney’s injury-induced absence. Eriksson insisted that Heskey’s omission was not necessarily permanent, although Birmingham City’s new signing has underachieved at international level… When the whole squad are gathered, Eriksson and Grip will remind them of the potential dangers of venues like Vienna and Katowice. “When England go to a place like Austria or Poland, it is something special for them [the hosts],” said Grip. “Other countries always want to beat England, a big football country. If you are playing against England, you will be seen by millions and will also be able to sell yourself as a player to another club. That is very important for their players. You don’t need to motivate players to play against England.

Northern Ireland live on MOTD
BBC News – Aug 27, 2004
Lawrie Sanchez has played a part in two of the greatest giant-killing tales in football history – now he hopes to lead Northern Ireland to the 2006 World Cup in Germany. The man who scored the winning goal for Wimbledon against Liverpool in the 1988 FA Cup final and managed Wycombe to the 2001 semi-finals has transformed the fortunes of the Irish since taking over in January. Sanchez’s side are unbeaten in six games but his first competitive match will provide his toughest test yet. There should also be some interesting pointers as to how Poland intend to approach their game with England in Chorzow on Wednesday.

More athletes could be exposed — andmedals stripped — in coming months when the IOC analyzes sampleswhich have been stored for further scrutiny, he said. “Definitely, this is one of the weapons we want to use,” hesaid. Rogge said the IOC will expand drug testing for the 2006 WinterGames in Turin, Italy, and the Summer Games in Beijing two yearslater. Nearly one in four athletes was tested in Athens, and thatfigure will “vastly increase,” he said. As for the competitions, Rogge singled out the emergence ofAsia, which recorded a 50 percent increase in gold medals fromSydney, and predicted an even stronger performance in Beijing. “These were the Games where we saw the awakening of Asia,” hesaid.

It showed that the quarterfinal victory over Spain was anaberration, not an awakening. “I don’t know if we’d have beaten them if Timmy had played 40minutes — though I’d have liked to have had that chance,” Brownsaid. “Basketball has been getting better around the world becauseof what the Dream Team did in ’92, and rather than knocking ourguys we should give credit to the guys who won. ” The results might have been different if the Americans hadfielded a team of their best players, but injuries, indifferenceand insecurities left many of the best Americans — includingShaquille O’Neal, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Jason Kidd — back inthe United States. “In 1992, the USA had the best players ever. Here they aregreat players, too, but they are young and they never playedinternationally, so with different rules it’s a whole differentthing,” said Ginobili, who also plays for the San Antonio Spurs. “The rest of the world is getting better and the States isn’tbringing their best players.

Iraq wins respect, Argentina a long-awaited gold
SI.com – Aug 29, 2004
Top Olympic officials from both teams joined FIFA president Sepp Blatter in condemning the killing and expressing condolences to the family of Enzo Baldoni, but accepted the game should go ahead. Iraq served notice that it may make it to a final some time in the near future. Argentina gave a big hint that it has the talent to win its third World Cup at Germany 2006. Like the other 15 teams in the Olympic competition, Argentina’s squad was restricted to players aged 23 years or under, with three players over that age allowed. Coach Marcelo Bielsa, who also is in charge of the senior team, was under pressure from the media and the fans to deliver the gold medal after Argentina’s 2002 World Cup flop and failing to win the Copa America last month. His team responded with a 6-0 win over Serbia-Montenegro in its first game. A 1-0 victory over Paraguay in Saturday’s final at the Olympic Stadium, with Tevez scoring the only goal, captured a long overdue gold medal.

Vogts defiant in face of friendly fire
Telegraph.co.uk – Aug 27, 2004
We will go to Germany [for the World Cup finals in 2006] but not to sit in the stands with a hot dog. “It is good that the blame has only been put on me. I can live with that. If we keep this group together then maybe in five or six years we will have a lot more success”. The implication that Scotland have enjoyed any success at all under Vogts is a proposition to make cynics even of his dwindled band of sympathisers, but the manager who said at the start of his tenure at Hampden that there were no such things as friendly matches delved down into his deep well of contradiction once more.

Ghana include Olympic dozen
BBC News – Aug 27, 2004
The Portuguese coach has kept faith with the players, including captain Stephen Appiah, despite their failure to go beyond the group stages at the Olympic games. There is however no place for Udinese midfielder Sule Muntari, who has played in all of Ghana’s qualifiers so far, in the squad for the match on 5 September in Kumasi. The player was left out of Ghana’s squad for the Olympics too amidst some confusion. The Ghana Football Association said Muntari had been dropped for indiscipline and that he subsequently resigned from all national team assignments, but Barreto insisted he had only dropped the player on fitness grounds.

Inspirational midfielder Masego "Abedi" Ntshingane is back in the United
States. He and Diphetogo "Dipsy" Selolwane are expected to arrive here just
before the Guinea encounter. A successful campaign in the qualifying games can see the national football
team in the 2006 African Cup of Nations to be hosted by Egypt or, even
better, the 2006 World Cup finals in Germany. It can only achieve that by coming at least third in a tough group which
includes African champions Tunisia, runners-up Morocco, Malawi, Kenya and
Guinea.
