WORLD CUP 2006: Time to make friends in Berlin
noticias.info – Feb 12, 2005
We have a saying, ‘There’s more to football than winning 1-0’, and I think it’s just tremendous that superstars like these want to take part at this event. And I reckon we’ll see plenty of football in the grand scheme of things. The 2006 FIFA World Cup Gala Berlin naturally centres on football and is to feature a very special highlight on this most extraordinary evening: every living player who has ever won the FIFA World Cup (a total of 132) will be invited to the Berlin Olympic Stadium on 7 June 2006. The world is already looking forward to a breathtaking celebration of the game. datos de la noticia

Hampered by injuries in recent years, notably a longstanding hipproblem, the 33-year-old is still an inspirational figure forUnited despite his appearances and rest periods being carefullymeasured out by manager Alex Ferguson. We have probably got the balance right with themanager and the medical side of things,” said Keane, who last yearmade a surprise return to international football and could yet playat the 2006 World Cup finals in Germany. “I am missing the odd game here and there. The games I haveplayed I have felt fresh. Physically, my hip feels good and myknees, and mentally I always enjoy my football. “With a few days rest here and there I do feel that bitfresher.

BBC News – Feb 10, 2005
Jorge saw his side beat Senegal 1-0 on his debut as Cameroon coach in an international friendly in Paris on Wednesday. “I think we can win the five matches to qualify for 2006,” the Portuguese coach said after Chelsea’s Geremi snatched an 87th minute winner. “This win does a lot of good after all the criticism we’ve taken,” said Cameroon captain Rigobert Song. “It sets us up for a good run.

Channel News Asia – Feb 10, 2005
Germany’s stars will receive 50,000 euros each for reaching the quarter-finals, 100,000 euros for the semi-finals and 150,000 euros for a final appearance. “We are agreed on the conditions,” explained Germany defender Christian Worns. A victory in the final in Berlin on July 9 2006 will see them net the jackpot of 250,000 euros, more than double what was on offer in the 2002 World Cup. A 92,000 euro purse was the reward for winning the World Cup in Japan and South Korea with Germany picking up 71,500 euros after falling to a 2-0 defeat by Brazil in the final.

4TH AFRICAN FOOTBALL AWARDS: Durban set for Night of a Dozen Stars
Vanguard – Feb 12, 2005
The Top ContendersMost African football buffs feel the Player of the Year award is a straight contest between Nigeria’s Jay-Jay Okocha and Cameroon’s Eto’O Fils, the reigning king. Eto’O was outstanding for his new Spanish club, Barcelona, in the outgone year, pairing with World Player of the Year, Ronaldinho, to destroy many teams as Barcelona look unimpeachable at the top of the Primera Liga. Okocha was the Most Valuable Player at the African Nations Cup, took his English Premier League side, Bolton, to the Carling Cup final for the first time and was also Best Scorer at the Cup of Nations. He led Nigeria by example, though missing from a couple of games due to no fault of his, and was his talismanic self when the Super Eagles drubbed Warriors of Zimbabwe 3-0 in Harare in a World Cup qualifier in Harare in September. Tunisia, who lifted their first African title on home soil, should be named the Team of the Year ahead of the rejuvenated Cote d’Ivoire, and Zaki Badou’s Morocco. Nigeria’s Enyimba FC, who became the first club to retain the Champions League title and the second in the competitions’ entire history, are favoured for Club of the Year, ahead of Champions League finalists, Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia and Confederation Cup winners, Hearts of Oak of Ghana.

Owen not even halfway to the goals record
Telegraph.co.uk – Feb 10, 2005
“It also,” he adds with relish, “overshadowed a fact that today England fans would like to celebrate. Simply put, Woodward’s England were the first-ever world champions!”By this he means that, with Woodward captain, they won the finals of both the 1908 and 1912 Olympic Games. Since FIFA were not to organise a World Cup until 1930, Oliver’s claim is sustainable. It does, nonetheless, raise a slight reservation about Woodward’s record. In all he played six Olympic matches, scoring six goals, and, although the team were distinguishable from England amateurs in only one slight respect – the three-lion badges had been removed from their white shirts and temporarily replaced with minature union flags – it could plausibly be argued that they represented Great Britain. It is a matter of detail. Take off the six goals and Woodward still has 67 in 47 matches; Owen is still not even halfway there.

Joy prevails as Germany draws with Argentina
Expatica – Feb 10, 2005
We paid for our mistakes. But we had a great start into 2005,” said Klinsmann. For Klinsmann and the team the game marked another step forward in their preparation for the 2006 World Cup in Germany – the event where everything is to come together. “We light-heartedly gave away the victory. We can not afford to let this happen at the World Cup,” warned Bild. Klinsmann said: “It was another step forward in our development of a team philosophy. We want to develop a scheme all players can identify themselves with.

Mido, the new Spurs star
Middle East Online – Feb 11, 2005
The Tottenham striker is banned indefinitely from playing for Egypt by his country’s football association following a row with former coach Marco Tardelli. But Mido, who has 34 caps, is determined to get the ban overturned. He returns to Cairo this weekend to make a public plea for a second chance in the hope of getting back into Egypt’s side for their 2006 World Cup qualifying campaign. Essam Abdel-Moneim, the Egyptian Football Association chairman, told the Lonmdon Evening Standard: “We have no objections providing he apologises to the people of Egypt and the association. “If he promises never to do something like that again then we can forgive him. He is a young player and it was his first mistake for the national team. After that, it is up to the coach (Shawky Ghareib) whether or not he is selected.

WORLD CUP 2006: Maradona ready to resume Argentine love affair
noticias.info – Feb 11, 2005
Perhaps this is the reason why his appearances on the highest stage have rarely gone unnoticed. At Spain 1982, audiences around the world saw a young Maradona receive his marching orders in his team’s final game against Brazil. Four years later the image of Maradona holding the FIFA World Cup trophy aloft would go down in history, in stark contrast to the tears shed after defeat by Germany in the final of Italia 90. His final cap came at USA 1994, where he was sent home in disgrace after failing a drugs test. Maradon’a last appearance in a national team shirt came in his testimonial game on 10 November 2001. The fans packed into Boca Juniors’ Bombonera stadium saw an out-of-condition Maradona play the full 90 minutes alongside the squad then coached by Marcelo Bielsa. “I made mistakes and I paid for them, but the ball hasn’t… The news has sparked an explosion of euphoria from the press, meanwhile, who are gleefully anticipating seeing Argentina’s biggest celebrity back on international duty. The only thing that remains is the aforementioned meeting between Maradona and the president of the AFA. Germany 2006, and the Argentina players, are ready to welcome him with open arms. datos de la noticia

WORLD CUP 2006: South America’s finest does it his way

“We’ve had a good (qualifying) campaign. We’ve achieved our qualifying goals and have the competition’s top scorer in our squad. What is left now is the World Cup,” Parreira said after his side’s final game of the preliminaries. Football fans the world over are now anxious to see what Ronaldo and Co can produce in Germany.

WORLD CUP 2006: Terry’s gain is Ferdinand’s pain
noticias.info – Feb 11, 2005
He also scored eight times and according to former England defender Jack Charlton, the 24-year-old is now “probably the best centre-back we’ve had since way back”. Charlton, one of England’s heroes of 1966, is lavish in his praise of Terry. Speaking after his induction into the English National Football Museum’s Hall of Fame last month, he told FIFAworldcup. com: “Terry is a tremendous player – he’s got good pace and he’s a good tackler and he selects his headers and he goes and gets them. He very rarely doesn’t win a header if he goes for it. I am a big fan of his. Contrasting fortunesTerry’s fortunes contrast markedly with those of Rio Ferdinand, England’s most expensive defender, whose loss of form led national coach Sven Goran-Eriksson to replace him with the Chelsea man for the October FIFA World Cup? qualifier against Austria, breaking up his once preferred partnership of Ferdinand and Sol Campbell… Contrasting fortunesTerry’s fortunes contrast markedly with those of Rio Ferdinand, England’s most expensive defender, whose loss of form led national coach Sven Goran-Eriksson to replace him with the Chelsea man for the October FIFA World Cup? qualifier against Austria, breaking up his once preferred partnership of Ferdinand and Sol Campbell. Although Campbell’s hamstring injury during the Austria match meant Ferdinand was back in the starting XI for the final qualifier against Poland, there is every chance that with Campbell fit again, he will begin the 12 November friendly against Argentina on the bench. Looking ahead to next summer’s FIFA World Cup, Eriksson’s choice of pairing in central defence represents one of his toughest decisions. Or it ought to do provided Ferdinand, who turns 27 next week, rediscovers his form. According to Charlton, “Rio Ferdinand has had a lot of bad press for a couple of games and he’s a much better player than that”. Besides his hesitant defending in England?s recent embarrassing defeats by Denmark and Northern Ireland, Ferdinand ? who missed UEFA EURO 2004 because of a ban imposed after his refusal to take a drugs test – has also made several high-profile errors in the red of Manchester United this season. When on top of his game, his languid-looking, ball-playing approach has made him one of the first names on Eriksson’s team-sheet, but now it seems that he will have to prove himself once again.

More Soccer Notes Greater Manchester Police is investigating threats made to Manchester United directors and the family of Malcolm Glazer, who is seeking to buy the English Premiership soccer club. The Web site of fans magazine Red Issue published a statement from a group calling itself the Manchester Education Committee that said any United directors who accept Glazer’s proposals will be guilty of treachery and placed in "an extremely vulnerable position for years to come. "Australia’s soccer team will play September’s World Cup qualifying match in the Solomon Islands provided adequate security is in place, the Oceania Football Confederation said.

Disgraced German referee arrested
CNN International – Feb 12, 2005
Against the background of existing admissions and the new evidence, "Hoyzer must count on a hefty jail sentence," the prosecutor’s office said. "For that reason, there is a concrete risk of his absconding," their statement said, adding that Hoyzer had been arrested on Saturday, two days after the warrant was issued. News that further games may have been manipulated came just as the German Football Association, desperately trying to get the matter cleared up ahead of the 2006 World Cup, suspended another referee. Torsten Koop, an experienced Bundesliga referee, told the DFB on Thursday that Hoyzer had boasted to him about manipulating games. He said he had not reported it because he thought Hoyzer was just bragging. The DFB said on Saturday it had suspended Koop, who has been injured since August 2004, for his failure to report the conversation. The DFB declined to comment on Hoyzer’s arrest.

Emerson, Robinho big winners in Brazil’s victory
Jamaica Observer – Feb 12, 2005
But Parreira feels young promises like Robinho are good for the team and keep the stars on their toes. “It’s good,” Parreira said. “You cannot relax in Brazilian football. ”
Emerson’s return was a personal triumph. The Juventus midfielder, 28, is battling to regain a position that was his for years. A hard-nosed, defence-minded midfielder, missed the 2002 Cup with an injury, but retained the starting berth. But Parreira surprisingly cut Emerson and left him off the squad for some 15 months, reportedly because he acceded to pressure from his club and declined to report for a friendly with Ireland… “A stronger and heavier player like Emerson is useful, because he makes the team more offensive by freeing the wings to advance without exposing the defence,” Parreira said. “Besides, you have to be a real man to prevail in Montevideo,” the Uruguayan capital, he added. Having played in the World Cup gives him an edge, Emerson said. “Experience helps a lot, especially in a tournament as difficult as the qualifiers,” he was quoted as saying. “And everyone wants to take a shot at Brazil. ”
The return of Emerson is the only line-up change planned for the qualifiers, Parreira said. Regular starters who missed the Hong Kong game – Ronaldo, Milan goalkeeper Dida and midfielder Kaka – will return for next month’s games.
