WORLD CUP 2006: Player to Watch: Park in bloom after going Dutch
noticias.info – May 9, 2005
Park raised hopes of overturning the 2-0 first-leg deficit by opening the scoring after only nine minutes, thumping a left-footed shot high past Dida. Afterwards the diminutive 24-year-old, whose seven goals in the Eredivisie this season helped PSV claim their 18th league title, reflected philosophically on the experience he had gained from involvement in Europe’s premier club competition. “This was a different experience from the World Cup but I have gained a better understanding of European football from this competition,” he said. Aside from his sparkling form in club football, this tireless attacking midfielder has also done a brilliant job for his national team, who currently sit top of their qualifying group for the 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany? with six points from three matches. Should they go on and claim a finals berth, few would question his chances of being a strong contender for the AFC Player of the Year award. Move to Japan
Unlike those players who learn their trade gradually, the Seoul-born Park made an unusually successful move to Japan straight from high school, joining J-League club Kyoto Purple Sanga in 2001, rather than spending a couple of seasons with a local team. His genius at set-pieces and pinpoint crossing impressed then Korea Republic coach Guus Hiddink so much that the Dutchman did not hesitate to install the young playmaker in his FIFA World Cup squad that shocked the watching world by reaching the semi-finals on home soil.

Martins demands Nigeria refund
BBC News – May 10, 2005
Martins, who plays for Italian club Inter, told BBC Sport the sum of US$3,000 has been owed him since July 2004, when he came home for the 2006 World Cup qualifier against Algeria. “I’ve been asking for my flight ticket money but no one cares to give me a strong reason why I cannot get it,” Martins complained. “They’ve made several promises but I am yet to receive the money. ”

The Inter forward said his frustration with the string of unfulfilled promises forced him to reveal the problem to BBC Sport. “I am tired of asking for my money because it is not good to be talking about it all the time.

Cape Verde’s World Cup dream
BBC News – May 11, 2005
With a population of less than half-a-million, and no real football pedigree, not many pundits gave the former Portuguese colony a chance when the race for Germany 2006 began last year. But the island archipelago has a real chance of glory as the so-called minnows lie second in Group Two, ahead of Ghana and the DR Congo. They face South Africa at home on 5 June knowing that victory would push them one step closer the ‘promised land’ of the World Cup. Three points against Bafana Bafana will defy all popular convention and put them in pole position in the group standings with just three rounds of matches left to play.

Eriksson and FA remain united in last-chance saloon
Telegraph.co.uk – May 9, 2005
Three tournaments and Sven is out. A school of thought has developed in certain corners of the building that Eriksson will actually resign when England’s tour around the playing fields of Saxony and Bavaria concludes. This would be two years before his contract is due to expire, meaning he would forego a pay-off running into millions but sparing him the ignominy of dismissal. As ever in the wake of a major tournament, the managerial job market will be busy next summer and Eriksson would not be short of offers from clubs… Such names will dominate FA thoughts next July. If Eriksson does not walk, the FA may have to pay a settlement of between £5-£8 million, plus compensation to the employers of Eriksson’s replacement. Soho Square is hardly awash with cash, yet not reaching the 2008 European Championship finals would cost English football about £100 million in missed revenue. For now, the FA are united in their support for Eriksson. A decent if overly cautious coach, Eriksson deserves one final chance. So the game’s governors will ride the waves of disapproval lapping at the clay feet of Eriksson and hope, fingers-crossed, touching all the woodwork, the Swede can deliver in the summer. And then? So long, farewell.

Germans bet on richer future
Sunday Times – The Sunday Times – May 9, 2005
Maybe it is the imminent World Cup, to be held in Germany in the summer of 2006; maybe it is the realisation that when English clubs created the Premiership and started talking about stock-market flotations and merchandising, revenue streams and opening up Asian markets, some people got very rich; or maybe some persuasive member of the German blazer brigade rented the film Wall Street recently and was mesmerised by the Gordon Gecko speech. “Greed, for lack of a better of a word, is good,” Gecko, played by Michael Douglas, says. “Greed is right. Greed clarifies, cuts through and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit… has marked the upward surge of mankind. ” Two separate moves by the German football federation (DFB) would seem to suggest that it is looking to mark the upward surge of the German game by being more corporate, professional and downright greedy. First, it announced that it was going to get into the bookmaking business. “We would like our fair share of the betting market,” Theo Zwanziger, the DFB’s joint president, said. “At the moment, we provide the conditions for the bets to take place, but others take the money. ” What Zwanziger means when he says that the DFB provides the conditions for the bets to take place is that the German Football League organises football matches.

Latapy turns down Trinidad offer
Jamaica Observer – May 10, 2005
The Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF) had last month selected the 36 year-old Latapy as an assistant coach to new national head coach Leo Beenhakker but the 62-year old Dutchman preferred his own compatriots Theo De Jonk and Whim Rhizerburg. Beenhakker subsequently offered Latapy, a Trinidad and Tobago football legend and ex-national captain, the chance to try out for a place on the team but he has reportedly declined the offer. The ex-Porto, Hibernian and Glasgow Rangers playmaker had indicated in an earlier interview that he no longer felt able to do himself justice at international level and would not join Trinidad and Tobago for their 2006 World Cup qualifying campaign. When Latapy was first offered the post of assistant coach to the team, he had said he would have been keen in helping the team through the qualifiers but stressed he would remain at Falkirk until the end of the season. “I will stay here until we have completed our season, and hopefully see the Club back in the SPL,” Latapy said last month… The Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF) had last month selected the 36 year-old Latapy as an assistant coach to new national head coach Leo Beenhakker but the 62-year old Dutchman preferred his own compatriots Theo De Jonk and Whim Rhizerburg.

BBC News – May 10, 2005
Britain’s most successful Paralympian heads to the Paralympic World Cup this week and hopes to keep going until the Commonwealth Games in 2006. “I’ve probably got about 18 months left. I’m definitely racing this year and I think I’ll compete next year as well,” the 35-year-old told BBC Sport. “I’m not at that point yet, but my decision to stop will be a quick one. ”

The 11-time Paralympic gold-medallist might have ruled out the Beijing Games in 2008, but she loves competing too much to call it a day yet.

Disgraced Mutu aids England campaign
Telegraph.co.uk – May 9, 2005
“It is a bit ironic,” said a Soho Square source last night. Sacked by Chelsea after testing positive for drugs, Mutu began rebuilding his career at Juventus, although certain FA officials felt he should have been suspended for two years (until Oct 2006) rather than seven months. This weekend, he did England a significant favour. In a European qualifying programme packed with goals from men with Stamford Bridge connections, Mutu’s Group One brace for Romania past Petr Cech of the Czech Republic means England will be guaranteed one of the two automatic second-place qualifying tickets to Germany, provided they win their Group Six ties against Northern Ireland on Wednesday and Austria on Oct 8… Eriksson has to find a place for his leading goalscorer, Michael Owen, who is returning after suspension. “I think he [Owen] will play but I’m not sure yet,” Eriksson said. “He hasn’t played very much football. ” The Swede, understandably, is a huge admirer of Owen. “What Michael brings is goals, goals. Any defender has a lot of problems when Michael plays and a lot of respect for him. “Owen’s pace and finishing will be needed against opponents given belief and organisation by Lawrie Sanchez, and it would be surprising if Newcastle United’s new signing were overlooked.

Kerr feels heat as stakes rise
Telegraph.co.uk – May 10, 2005
There is now what amounts to an acceptance that should Ireland fail to qualify for Germany 2006 then Kerr, whose contract ends when the Republic’s World Cup campaign is over, will not be offered a new deal. Kerr has gone public with his desire to open negotiations but Delaney and his FAI colleagues have remained silent to the extent of not even saying “no comment”. Just under three years ago much of the Irish media campaigned for the departure of Mick McCarthy in the wake of the Roy Keane row and now the press, so supportive during the Jack Charlton era and most of the McCarthy years, are growing in hostility towards Kerr.
