Saudis first to advance in World Cup qualifiers [Archive] – Irankicks…
IranKicks – Sep 9, 2004
With Indonesia being held to a 2-2 draw in Sri Lanka, the Saudis, who have a maximum 12 points from four games, claimed first place and the group?s lone ticket to the next round. Although Turkmenistan could still technically finish level on point with the Middle Eastern giants, their two defeats to the Saudis in Group 8 mean that they would still finish behind them under the competition?s tiebreaker rules. The Turkmen went into the match needing a win to keep their qualification hopes alive and looked to be in good shape to do so playing on their home ground against a side that they held to a 2-2 draw at the Asian Cup finals in China less than two months ago. However, a lone goal on the hour mark by striker Yasser Al Qahtani ultimately proved decisive as the Saudis maintained their quest to qualify for a fourth straight World Cup.

BBC News – Sep 10, 2004
After last weekend’s humiliating 2006 World Cup qualifying 3-0 home defeat against Gabon, Algerian football was left in a state of shock. But club champions USMA will be hoping to rescue the country’s image when they face Tunisia’s Esperance in a Group B tie in the Champions League. Esperance lead the group with maximum nine points from the three games played while USMA are third with three points. Both sides have already met on three occasions in the past year in this same competition, with Esperance having the edge. A win for the Tunisians will put them in the semi-finals with two more games remaining.

But this time it’s nothing to do with sex scandals or returning to club soccer. The focus today will be on the England coach’s tactical decisions and his faith in his underachieving stars. Although Eriksson has a contract until 2008, he could be fired if England loses to Poland today four days after squandering a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with Austria. “After one draw it is better to win of course, but there are a lot of games to play and I am still very positive we will qualify for (World Cup 2006) Germany,” Eriksson told reporters yesterday.

Mwina Kaduguda, who was in office when Tanzania lost 3-0 to Kenya in the preliminary round of the 2006 World Cup qualifiers, said the federation failed to pay the team’s match allowances in order to bring a witchdoctor to Nairobi. “Players were not paid their allowances before the game, which cost us the chance of reaching the group stage,” Kaduguda told BBC Sport on Wednesday. “I was in Kenya with the team, where I ordered my colleagues to go back home and get money to pay the players. “But instead of coming with the money, they came with a witchdoctor. “Our team was well prepared and was far better than Kenya but the disgruntled players did not put up a serious fight,” he said.

BBC SPORT | Football | African | Algeria appoint interim coach
BBC News – Sep 10, 2004
Cherradi’s appointment follows the sacking of Belgian coach Robert Waseige on Tuesday. Before the appointment Cherradi had been Algeria’s assistant coach under Waseige. Waseige was dismissed after Algeria lost 3-0 to Gabon in last weekend’s 2006 World Cup qualifier. It was Algeria’s worst home defeat in 39 years and put the team at the bottom of Group Four. Raouraoua also added that Cherradi will get help from the federation’s technical committee for the 9 October game in Kigali. “After the game in October, the national team will not play another official game until March 2005,” Raouraoua said. “The break will help us appoint a new coach and examine any urgent issues.

However, neither Klinsmann nor team manager Oliver Bierhoff regard the match in Berlin?s newly renovated Olympic stadium as a chance for revenge. For both it will be a first step on a path which, they hope, will lead the German team back to the same arena for the 2006 World Cup final. ?We want to know where the team stands 21 months before the 2006 World Cup, which is so important for German football,? said Bierhoff, like Klinsmann a former Germany forward. Klinsmann, who took over from Rudi Voeller in the wake of Germany?s shock group stage exit from Euro 2004, presided over a 3-1 friendly win over Austria in Vienna in his first game in charge last month. Sport?s elite: Although they went on to hold England to a draw in a World Cup qualifier, Austria do not belong to the sport?s elite and Wednesday?s match against the ultimate soccer power will be far more relevant. Germany have not beaten a top team since a 1-0 victory over England at Wembley in October 2000, losing eight and drawing one of their nine games against prestigious opponents since. The three-times world and European champions still have potential and have a record of bouncing back from frustrating spells but on their current form it seems unlikely they will trouble Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and company.

Scotland’s playing squad decide on which band they would like to record a World Cup song. Del Amitri sang Don’t Come Home Too Soon for Scotland’s 1998 campaign, while comedian Andy Cameron offered the overly optimistic We’re on the March With Ally’s army in 1978. Scottish Football Association spokesman Andy Mitchell said the most important thing was that the team qualified for the finals. Here are your views on who should record Scotland’s next World Cup song and the lyrics it should contain. The Have Your Say is now closed.

Some regard him as a hero for leading the Athenian club to their first Greek league title in nine years; others are highly critical, slamming him for repeatedly using players out of position and his defensive tactics.

VN bids to block S Korea in qualifier
Viet Nam News – Sep 9, 2004
On Wednesday, the teams
play in a 2006 World Cup 2nd-leg qualifier. Currently,
Viet Nam, with three points, trails South Korea, which has four
points in the group seven World Cup qualifying group. Lebanon and
Maldives trail in third and fourth with three points and one point
respectively. Only the group winner will earn a trip to Germany in
2006… "Facing
South Korea, I will need experienced players like Le Huynh Duc,
Tran Truong Giang and Nguyen Duy Quang," Tavares said. "We will play solid defence with rapid attacks in this
match. "
Tavares is
still keeping secret his decision on whether or not to start top
striker Pham Van Quyen, who notched what is regarded by many as
the most outstanding goal in the history of Vietnamese football
against South Korea in a 1-0 Asian Cup qualifier victory last
October. To prepare
the Vietnamese team for the match, Tavares has been teaching his
squad crucial tactics, including midfield organisation and
defensive line reinforcement. During the
training at HCM City?s Thanh Long Sports Centre on Monday, the
Brazilian coach focused the team on air defence as well as
attacking wing play. He also let
striker Quyen and midfielder Nguyen Minh Phuong practice their
free kicks. In defence,
the coach will rely on Pham Hung Dung, Nguyen Manh Dung, Nguyen
Duc Thang and Nguyen Van Dan, who were battle-tested in last week?s
LG-Cup in HCM City.

Zico didn?t consider Fiorentina midfielder Hidetoshi Nakata due to a groin strain or Keji Tamada due to a knee problem.

Malawi coach under pressure
BBC News – Sep 8, 2004
Kaputa told BBC Sport that he is fed up of the media criticism heaped on him for the team’s poor performance in the joint qualifiers for the 2006 African Cup of Nations and World Cup. The Flames lost 3-2 to Kenya’s Harambee Stars in last weekend’s tie in Nairobi. “Many people want me to go but my employers, the Football Association of Malawi, have remained silent, which means they still need my services,” he said. Kaputa said that the Flames, who are at the bottom of their qualifying pool, have not been given the required support to compete with other teams in the group… Kaputa told BBC Sport that he is fed up of the media criticism heaped on him for the team’s poor performance in the joint qualifiers for the 2006 African Cup of Nations and World Cup.

* In Your Nation’s Capital far less attention will be focused on whether these new bogus ads against President Bush’s National Guard Service will have any effect on the campaign (answer: No) than on whether Joe Gibbs’ dusted-off 11-year-old playbook will still work in the NFL (answer: Yes). * Except, of course, in the Heinz-Kerry household where the discussion is much more likely to be centered on whether the French national soccer team (known in Kerry-ville as le football \’e9quipe a la maison) will make it to the World Cup Finals in 2006. * Football season may be a big deal to a large number of Americans of the female persuasion as well, but for testosterone-laden middle aged men, the most often-asked question as they huddle around the coffee machine on Fridays is: Are we the early game or the late game?

* The two most dreaded answers are: "We’re the Monday Night game," or, "It’s a bye week," which means there are no excuses for not (a) getting the tires rotated on your wife’s car; (b) taking the kids out for the afternoon, or; (c) cleaning out the closet in the den which has so much crap stuffed into it that, when you open the door, things tumble out that you don’t even remember buying — much less why. * The NFL season kicked off last night with a game between the Indianapolis (formerly Baltimore) Colts and the New England (formerly Boston) Patriots. * The pre-game show started at 8:00 Eastern with a ten-second delay between the live action and what you saw on your TV screen. This, it was explained in the Washington Post yesterday, was to avoid an instant replay of what was called – and I’m not making this up – the "wardrobe malfunction" at halftime of the Superbowl.

they feel very strongly about that,” Eriksson said. The Football Association head of media relationships, Adrian Bevington, said the players felt they had been treated unfairly. “They regularly receive criticism but they felt it was so intense on this occasion that it was time to make a stand. “On the pitch, England joined France and Italy in securing wins following indifferent results over the weekend. But European champion Greece served up another poor performance in a 0-0 draw against Turkey in Pireaus, following its 2-1 defeat by Albania in Tirana on Saturday, leaving it with one point out of six in group two.

Barreto left Ghana for his native Portugal unannounced last Sunday night in a Hollywood movie-style that stunned the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and even his close associates. The Portuguese broke his contract with Ghana to handle Portuguese first division side, Maritimo, on a one-year deal. Even as the GFA top brass and Sports Ministry officials are putting their heads together to find a quick-fix solution to the puzzle, the Graphic Sports had discovered that long before Sunday’s qualifying match that Barreto had made up his mind to quit the job in similar manner that Yugoslav Millan Zivadinovic abandoned the Stars in 2002 after only one match in charge. According to yesterday?s edition of Scottish newspaper, Daily Record, Maritimo President Carlos Pereira spilled the beans on how Barreto was ?smuggled? out of Ghana last Sunday because of fears for the coach?s safety, as he feared the wrath of football fans if he had made the Maritimo move public… Please tell me why, because maybe I?m a foreigner and I don?t know what happens here. ? Whether these cocktail of problems are real or only in Barreto?s mind, one thing was clear. He made it known that he wanted to send Ghana to the 2006 World Cup in Germany to make a name for himself and then return to Portugal to take charge of a big club. Almost halfway into the journey to Germany, the Athens Games may have provided Barreto with an ideal springboard to fulfil his dreams of leading a club side after several years of playing the bridesmaid in Portugal, Germany and Russia.
