?To restrict Morocco and Malaysia to identical 0-2 victories shows that our footballers have courage and exuberance to face more skilful opponents,? said Faisal who is also Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Northern Areas. The Pakistan-Morocco tie was first ever meeting between Pakistan and the African giants who first entered the World Cup football in 1962 and have appeared at the finals on four occasions-1970,1986, 1994 and 1998. Faisal observed that the team won the hearts of soccer fans back home by putting up industrious performance against top rivals. Pakistan also went down fighting against Malaysia who is one of the strongest team in Asia. Malaysia appeared in two Asian Cups the showpiece event of AFC. The playground of 17,000 seater King Fahd Sporting City in Taif hosted both the matches of Pakistan… Malaysia appeared in two Asian Cups the showpiece event of AFC.

The AFC announced last month that it would allow Australiato join them but only if the move was backed by the OFC and theworld governing body FIFA. The Football Federation of Australia (FFA) formally appliedto the OFC for permission to leave and the proposal wasunanimously supported an OFC executive meeting in Noumea on theweekend. ‘The move of Australia to Asia is one the executive and Ifully support as it will further develop football in Australiaand at the same time provide many opportunities for theremaining OFC members,’ OFC President Reynald Temarii said in astatement. ‘Their departure is the catalyst we need in OFC to try evenharder to develop the game in this region. ‘Although they will be part of Asia we will continue tofoster friendly relations with them and have exchanges.

Afterall they are still family. ‘FIFA are expected to make a decision on the move later thisyear although Australia will not be allowed to join AFC untilafter the 2006 World Cup. Australian soccer officials had said their push to join Asiawas part of a long-term strategy to improve the commercial andcompetitive nature of soccer in a country where it lags behindthe more popular football codes of Australian Rules, rugby unionand rugby league. Australia have long entertained thoughts of joining Asia butthe move intensified after FIFA went back on its decision toaward Oceania direct entry to the 2006 World Cup. Under the existing arrangement, the Oceania winner has toplayoff against a South American team while Asia has four directqualifying spots and a playoff position. Australia are the dominant force in the region but havequalified for the World Cup only once, in 1974.

As a result of the current system, some fans would pay up to 60 percent more
than a ticket’s face value because of a deal between Mastercard, FIFA and the
host German Football Association. FIFA, MasterCard and the German FA all deny breaking competition rules. However, owing to a 15 million pounds ($28. 32 million) sponsorship deal with
FIFA, MasterCard would be the only credit card that could be used to buy tickets
for the early stages of the tournament.

Close interestHowever, with Marcelo Bielsa having resigned after leading Argentina to Olympic footballing success in Greece, Pekerman accepted the chance of leading his country’s charge to the 2006 World Cup. The new job, as he told Champions magazine, has seen the 56-year-old take a close interest in European football. Champions: Which European teams and players have impressed you recently, and why?José Pekerman: I really like the way Arsenal [FC] play, they’re a pleasure to watch. Thierry Henry is exceptional, as are [Robert] Pires and [Patrick] Vieira. And I find [Chelsea FC’s] Frank Lampard phenomenal… I liked [AC] Milan with players like [Andriy] Shevchenko, Kaká, [Clarence] Seedorf and [Paolo] Maldini; and [AS] Monaco [FC] for reaching the UEFA Champions League final. Plus [Argentinians] Pablo Aimar, Roberto Ayala and Hernán Crespo, who are important to me. Champions: How does the standard of football in Europe compare with South America?Pekerman: South America produces great individual players, but loses out at team level. Players rarely stay long enough in a team. This means there is no continuity. In Europe, because there is an economy that allows clubs to build teams, they can improve year after year and amass great squads. Though in Europe, the differences between clubs are greater.

INTERVIEW: World Cup race is just starting — Chukwu
Vanguard – Apr 16, 2005
While some Nigerians feel that with the Super Eagles top of their African World Cup 2006 qualifying group and with two of the four remaining matches to be played at home, the coast is clear for a fourth consecutive World Cup finals ticket for Africa’s leading team, team chief coach, Christian Chukwu, says there should be no celebrating yet, as the campaign has in fact, just started in the real sense of it. Let me start by asking what was your impression of the Enugu Rangers’ performance in the Confederation Cup match against Union Douala of Cameroon?For sure, Rangers were the better side. But it is obvious that they have to work on their finishing. The Union Douala team was not fantastic; though they are more physical. Rangers need to work hard at their physical game and learn how to steal ‘half chances’ better so that they can come out of the second leg in Douala victorious… From what you have seen of Enugu Rangers, do you think they can win the Confederation Cup this year?They can, if they work on their striking power. They should work at converting chances, no frittering away dozens of opportunities before scoring one goal. The Union Douala team I saw did not come to play attacking football; the only purposeful forward move they made resulted in their only goal. In Douala, it would not be the same, they could attack for the 90 minutes. I am told that Rangers have injury problems. They should treat the injured and then work at fortifying their defence and midfield and learn to score more goals. That way, they can go all the way in the competition.

Wembley Stadium a Gonner
The Spoof – The Spoof (satire) – Apr 15, 2005
Local residents in Bognor are furious as many had signed up to Swedish Language classes so they could understand what the hell they were buying. For example a Bådoör is in fact a bedside marital aid storage cabinet. This revelation has left the Football Association with egg on its face as the 2006 FA Cup was to be the first match played there and they had only got three seats left for the game at the venue. Bertie Fossett said at Head Office "This revelation has left the Football Association with egg on its face as the 2006 FA Cup was to be the first match played there and we have only got three seats left for the game at the venue". We said we knew this before we had asked him and did he have anything new to add?"Not really but did you know a Bådoör is in fact a bedside marital aide storage cabinet". Insiders say that Bertie has been seen taking delivery of such an item and what's more the drawers were allegedly fully stocked and all machines fully charged. The original Wembley Stadium was built in Roman times about 44 BC and was razed to the ground to make way for a state of the art structure with a sliding roof and stainless steel urinals being the main features… Insiders say that Bertie has been seen taking delivery of such an item and what's more the drawers were allegedly fully stocked and all machines fully charged. The original Wembley Stadium was built in Roman times about 44 BC and was razed to the ground to make way for a state of the art structure with a sliding roof and stainless steel urinals being the main features. The venue was host to many famous sporting events such as the 1966 World Cup Final and the 1312 Croquet European Championships. Both events were won by England but in controversy in 1312 as the referee was shot in the eye with a longbow. During WW2 the site was painted with invisible paint to prevent detection from Heinkel pilots as they were found to use the structure as a navigation aid to locate Oscars Chip Shop in Greenwich. The last football match played there was England vs.

The decision was taken by the FA without any influence from Arsenal. A spokesman said: “Every season we are under pressure to find large neutral semi-final venues to maximise the number of fans able to follow their teams. “As a venue, Cardiff is currently the largest available to the FA. “Contrary to what has been suggested, Arsenal did not ‘force thisthrough’. ”

Ironically Manchester United chief executive David Gill is one of the members of the FA’s Challenge Cup commitee, which ratified thedecision over the semi-finals venue.
