Dispatch Online – Your premier Eastern Cape news site
Dispatch Online – May 6, 2005
“We want to succeed as a nation. We want to be seen as a winning nation,” said Jordaan, adding that the 2010 World Cup was “part of the psyche”. South Africa, which had lost its bid for the 2006 event to Germany, came back to fight for the 2010 SWC with greater determination, calling on former president Nelson Mandela to help in the final lobbying effort. Jordaan said South Africa is working to share the benefits – and the preparation work – for the event with the rest of the continent to show that Africa should not be shunted to the sidelines of key international events. “We have to make sure that this event remains an African event and that we embrace all of Africa,” he said. “The opportunities are there. We just have to work together and plan together in order to extend the benefits… We just have to work together and plan together in order to extend the benefits. ”

Beyond the economic spin-offs, African football fans are also getting a treat. “This will be the first World Cup where African football fans can come by road, by bus, by taxis or by train. They have never had this opporurtunity before,” said Jordaan. “It will be the first time these countries will be playing against European or South American opposition on South African soil. ”

The 2010 SWC in South Africa promises to be more than just a sports event, said Jordaan, pointing to the 1998 tournament in France as a trendsetter in that approach. “We would like to place it in a broader context as France did,” said Jordaan.

In a statement yesterday, the FFA said the national team boss,who clashed with the SBS man in the tunnel after a short-livedpost-match interview, had behaved in a far from satisfactorymanner. “The investigation concluded that the conduct of Farina duringthe incident in question was substantially less than what the FFAis entitled to expect from a person holding the position of theAustralian national team coach… “As a result, the FFA has provided Mr Farina with a formalwarning and required him to undergo counselling to prevent similaroccurrences in future. “The report into the investigation noted that the conduct of thejournalist involved is ultimately a matter for his employer,” thestatement concluded. Farina has long had a prickly relationship with SBS, which isthe FFA’s broadcast partner for the Socceroos World Cup 2006campaign. His frustration boiled over after the Iraq match and led to aconfrontation, after which Orsatti complained to police.

Shaun: I’m aiming to stay here

With the transfer window set to re-open for business in a matter of weeks, speculation regarding where the ’15m-rated England international will play his football next season is sure to intensify. A trio of London clubs – Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs – are all understood to have Wright-Phillips high on their lists, with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger a confirmed admirer. Champions’ League finalists Liverpool, are also keeping tabs on him. However, the 23-year-old has stressed that as far as he is concerned, he will be wearing the same light Blue shirt as he has always done when the new campaign kicks-off in August. “I signed a four-year contract last August and when I signed that it was with the intention to stay at the club,” Wright-Phillips insisted… Premiership business concludes next Sunday when Middlesbrough visit Sportcity, but for Wright-Phillips, there is a possibility that he will be involved in the England squad that jets off for the much-maligned tour of America. City boss Stuart Pearce has misgivings about letting his player leave so soon after having had knee surgery. But if Wright-Phillips misses out, he is determined to be involved in England’s next foreign tour – namely the 2006 World Cup. “I’m not sure if I’ll go,” he said. “It depends on whether I get picked and then it depends on the manager. My fitness is fine and it’s just a case of getting used to moving the knee again. “We can go a long, long way and we have got a very good chance of winning the World Cup.

BAR says it’s examining its options, which means it could sue. But don’t try that in NASCAR. Blame gameMost fingers pointed at Johnson, the Nextel Cup Series leader, as the “idiot” who triggered the biggest of the “big ones” on multimillion-dollar mayhem weekend at Talladega Superspeedway. But if Johnson wouldn’t have set off a big crash, somebody else would have. That’s the reality of superspeedway racing in NASCAR these days, when 43 drivers are expected to ride – no, compete – side-by-side-by-side at 190 mph for 3 hours.

But the England captain and his wife have been ‘close’ to buying a house in Madrid countless times before. For now they remain in the second of the properties they have leased.
