To be honest, I can’t believe he [Eriksson] is taking only four forwards. Strikers win you World Cups and I don’t think he needed so many defenders or midfielders. “With so little competitive football since Christmas, Bassett says that Walcott can realistically be utilised only as a substitute. “It’s imponderable that he could play a full 90 minutes when he hasn’t figured for Arsenal, so I think he is there to make a cameo appearance,” he said. “Having said that, I wouldn’t bet against him if he came on. You never know, he could turn out to be the surprise of the World Cup. He is a lovely lad… “It’s imponderable that he could play a full 90 minutes when he hasn’t figured for Arsenal, so I think he is there to make a cameo appearance,” he said. “Having said that, I wouldn’t bet against him if he came on. You never know, he could turn out to be the surprise of the World Cup. He is a lovely lad. He won’t crack up or anything and he will be able to handle the pressure. “Walcott started out as a right-winger for Southampton but sometimes found it difficult to impose himself until Harry Redknapp decided that he would do most damage playing through the middle in a similar sort of role to Thierry Henry. He was outstanding during October when he scored in consecutive games against Leeds United, Millwall and Stoke City, but his most impressive moment was a match-winning goal against Luton Town in December.

“We are urging the European Commission to honor the pledge it made when a similar breach was alleged during the 1998 World Cup in France. Unless it takes action European competition laws will be breached again and again,” Phil Evans of Which? said in a statement. In a report published by the British daily The Independent, Philippe Ruttley, a partner at the law firm Clyde & Co, said: “The ticket sales arrangements for the 2006 World Cup discriminate against football fans not situated in Germany and force them to buy tickets initially through an exclusive route controlled by a single credit card operator – unless they hold a bank account in Germany or are prepared to carry out a bank transfer requiring additional expense. Such conditions are plainly unfair and discriminate against non-German EU football fans. ”

Ticketing scheme fair, says FIFA.

Deutsche Welle – Oct 26, 2005
The two sides said in a joint statement they would not be disclosing details of the out-of-court settlement, following Puma’s lawsuit for damages totaling over two million euros ($2. “FIFA and sport-lifestyle company Puma wish to announce that in the interests of international football, they have reached an out-of-court settlement in their legal dispute over Cameroon’s innovative one-piece playing kit,” the statement said.

The penalty was subsequently lifted on appeal, but the ban remained. Puma launched legal proceedings with a court in the German city of Nuremburg in July, claiming compensation from world football’s governing body.
