Eriksson checks out of England and leaves little discernible legacy
Guardian Unlimited – Jul 3, 2006
The weaknesses were laid bare in the shoot-out. Scolari does seem to have created a steeliness. Just as he had at Euro 2004, the goalkeeper Ricardo intimidated England with his belligerent confidence and Simao, assigned the first penalty, did not let his concentration flag even while being made to wait an age before the broadcasters were ready. The next England manager Steve McClaren must get a fair chance but he cannot settle for being a budget version of Eriksson. David Beckham, presumably anticipating a shake-up, relinquished the captaincy yesterday and so avoided the danger of finding it taken from him peremptorily. The life of the national team cannot be permitted to proceed exactly as before. Eriksson had faith in a low-key manner but his England flatlined at the great tournaments.

World Cup Preview: Tuesday’s semifinal
International Herald Tribune – Jul 3, 2006
After Italy humiliated Germany, 4-1, in a warm-up game in Florence on March 1, Lippi warned delirious compatriots that the result meant little. "We won't score four goals against Germany again," Lippi said. "They're not the same side we met in March. Now they are exploiting the enthusiasm of the whole nation and it has transformed them. "Klinsmann is not the first Bundestrainer with no previous experience. Franz Beckenbauer had not coached before he took over the national team and led it to a world title in 1990 when Klinsmann was part of his squad. But no one would dare question Der Kaiser's qualification… Völler did not have a coaching license when he became German coach. He led the team on a dour, often desperate run, to the final four years ago. When it was eliminated in the group stage in Euro 2004, unable to even score against Latvia, Völler departed, forgiven because he had so little talent to work with. Klinsmann has wrought a transformation without starting any attacking players not available to Völler. Torsten Frings, Michael Ballack, Bernd Schneider and the attacking fullback, Philipp Lahm, all started against Latvia. Bastien Schweinsteiger came off the bench. Lukas Podolski was an unused substitute.

Fifa felt that Greece were making fun of them and for that reason they have taken this decision. “It is the hour for the government to provide Fifa with the things they want in order for Greece to return to Fifa’s family. Anything else is not important.

England pay the penalty after Rooney sees red
Guardian Unlimited – Jul 2, 2006
Yet again England exited a major tournament after losing on penalties, leaving fans to think about what might have been following a dramatic game that saw Wayne Rooney shown the red card and David Beckham limp off early in the second half. With England’s World Cup hopes cruelly jettisoned, despite their spirited last-ditch stand at the Gelsenkirchen stadium, it’s goodbye to Sven-Goran Eriksson, goodbye to the Wags and, in all probability, goodbye to what was England’s best hope of World Cup glory for a generation… I don’t think we deserved to lose and I think the boys deserved better. ‘For Portugal’s manager, Luiz Felipe Scolari – the man whom the FA earlier unsuccessfully wooed to replace Eriksson – last night’s triumph was the completion of a humiliating hat-trick over his rival. The man they call ‘Big Phil’ managed Portugal in Euro 2004, when the team beat England on penalties, and coached Brazil in 2002 when, after a 2-1 victory over Eriksson’s men, the South Americans went on to lift the World Cup. At the death, and following a tense second half, it was Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo who sealed England’s fate, converting his side’s fourth spot kick and giving Portugal a 3-1 victory on penalties. England’s first penalty taker, Frank Lampard, had his shot saved, as did Steven Gerrard, who took the third. Jamie Carragher, who was forced to retake his penalty, saw the follow-up saved, by goalkeeper Ricardo who, having stopped three kicks, emerged the hero. It means England must now add Germany 2006 to a long list of ignominious exits on penalties – the 1990 World Cup (to West Germany), Euro 96 (to Germany), the 1998 World Cup (to Argentina) as well as the Euro 2004 defeat.

England struck down by penalty stigma

England struck down by penalty stigma
England 0 Portugal 0
(Portugal win 3-1 on penalties). Portuguese goalkeeper Ricardo, the hero when his side beat England the same way in the Euro 2004 quarter-finals, was again the difference. He became the first man to save three in a World Cup shoot out when he denied Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher as England crumbled again from 12 yards. Only man of the match Owen Hargreaves managed to find the net for England and that was no surprise as he plays his club football in the Bundesliga for Bayern Munich where it seems the mentality is somewhat different. David Beckham, whose blaze over the bar in Lisbon two years ago set Portugal on their way, was unable to take part on Saturday as he had been injured but his two midfield partners stepped into the void, all too predictably. It was hardly a shock when Lampard, England’s nominated penalty-taker in regulation time, had the first attempt saved as he has spent the entire tournament struggling to connect with a dead ball… David Beckham, whose blaze over the bar in Lisbon two years ago set Portugal on their way, was unable to take part on Saturday as he had been injured but his two midfield partners stepped into the void, all too predictably. It was hardly a shock when Lampard, England’s nominated penalty-taker in regulation time, had the first attempt saved as he has spent the entire tournament struggling to connect with a dead ball. Ricardo dived left to save that one, got a hand but could not stop Hargreaves’ effort then dived left again to save another weakly-struck effort by Gerrard. Carragher did beat the keeper but went too early and Ricardo used his psychological advantage well to push the defender’s second, straighter attempt onto the bar. In Lisbon Ricardo followed up his save from Darius Vassell by driving home the winning spot kick but this time he was not needed as Cristiano Ronaldo completed the job. England will no doubt argue that they should never have had to suffer their recurring nightmare as, without a controversial red card for striker Wayne Rooney just after the hour mark. It was all too painful for England, who have now lost all three of their World Cup shoot-outs ? against Germany in the 1990 semi-finals, Argentina in the second round in 1998 and Saturday.

Gattuso the key cog for Italy
TVNZ – Jul 3, 2006
I know that there are manypeople who don’t like me but I honestly don’t care,” he said. Although Gattuso has played 45 times for Italy since making hisdebut against Sweden in February 2000, it is only in the past twoseasons under Lippi that he has firmly established himself as afirst-choice and not surprisingly he is full of praise for thecoach. “We have a totally different mentality to the 2002 World Cup andEuro 2004. I’m not having a go at the previous coach (GiovanniTrapattoni) but the way we prepare for games now shows out on thefield,” he said. “We are a very tight group and while we are not in charge of agame for 90 minutes we are a very hard team to score against,” saidGattuso whose team have conceded just one goal, an own goal, intheir five games so far. The graft and grit of Gattuso have helped take Italy to the lastfour but the midfielder needs to avoid a yellow card if he is toevade the pain of reaching a final and missing it throughsuspension. “It is not a problem for me and I’m not going to worry aboutit,” he said, “But it will be a test of my maturity”.

Terrific Toni bang on target for Italy
Hindu – Jul 2, 2006
A semifinal against Germany awaits after it overcame Ukraine on Friday and memories of its first-round exit at Euro 2004 and defeat by South Korea two years earlier are starting to fade. It takes on the host on the back of a 23-game unbeaten run. One of those matches was a 4-1 win over Germany in March, though it will expect a tougher test from J?rgen Klinsmann’s team on Tuesday. This victory was not spectacular and the scale of it flattered Marcello Lippi’s team after Ukraine’s rally early in the second half, but good goalkeeping and good fortune helped at key moments. Two sharp saves from Gianluigi Buffon and a goalline clearance from the impressive Gianluca Zambrotta kept Italy ahead before Luca Toni scored the first of his two goals… It takes on the host on the back of a 23-game unbeaten run.

A sense of Italian destiny was completed when the bar came to its rescue at 2-0 and it means the only goal it has conceded at this World Cup has been an own-goal. Progress here will greatly lift Italian pride after earlier disappointments and the scandal gripping the domestic game, and the workmanlike slant to most of its display will bother no one there. A lack of killer instinct cost Italy dear against South Korea four years ago but it could not be accused of similar failings here.

He changed his tactics a little bit by putting Juninho in the middle and Ronaldinho up front – it disorganised the team. ”

SPIRIT

The difference in attitude between the two teams also tells its own story. Brazil’s players have failed to rally around struggling striker Ronaldo, while France have recovered from embarrassing tournaments at the 2002 World Cup and Euro 2004. Leonardo said: “Brazil have very good players but they were never a good team. “The spirit was not there and you could see that even after the defeat. The players don’t feel that much. ”

Desailly added: “France have shown the spirit, attitude and have respected the tactics and stuck together… Brazil’s players have failed to rally around struggling striker Ronaldo, while France have recovered from embarrassing tournaments at the 2002 World Cup and Euro 2004.

BBC News – Jul 2, 2006
But this was the time to go – and he chose his moment perfectly. England must start planning for the next World Cup now, and Beckham would not have been the man to lead the side in South Africa in 2010. And maybe not even in the European Championship in Austria and Switzerland in two years’ time. Beckham arrived at England’s last media briefing in Baden Baden wearing a look of bitter disappointment and limping from the ankle injury he received in the quarter-final defeat against Portugal. More significantly, he was clutching a prepared statement which suggested a pivotal moment in England’s football history was about to take place. Beckham fought to maintain his composure, struggling over his words and battling back tears as the magnitude of his decision hit home… He will always be remembered for the last-minute free-kick against Greece that sent England to the 2002 World Cup in Japan as well as the penalty that defeated old enemy Argentina in Sapporo. But, despite those highlights, he still failed to make an impact on the biggest international showpieces. France ’98 ended in the ignominy of a red card against Argentina, he was clearly unfit after a foot injury in Japan in 2002, was a jaded figure at Euro 2004, and has been part of a poor England campaign in Germany. Just occasionally the old magic re-surfaced – his free-kick against Ecuador in Stuttgart was typical Beckham – but he has resembled a shadow of the driving, forceful figure of his youth. Beckham’s showbiz image brought its detractors – and Eriksson even appeared in awe of his captain’s status. But he has always been a fine ambassador for England, especially in Japan, where he coped with suffocating hero worship from hundreds of fans with good grace. And no-one, even those who do not warm to Beckham, could deny how much the England captain’s armband meant to him.

Spirit of 98 with France
TVNZ – Jul 4, 2006
” France, who were eliminated from the 2002 finals in the group stage, struggled initially in Germany but have hit top form, overcoming Spain 3-1 in the last 16 and then overcoming holders Brazil 1-0 in the last eight. “The players respect each other and forget about their egos to serve the team,” said Thuram, who broke Marcel Desailly’s national record of 116 caps during the finals and will play his 120th match for France against Portugal in Munich. It was all very different, the Juventus player said, during Euro 2004 which France exited in the quarter-finals. “We weren’t a team there, we didn’t feel like a solid group and we had the impression we were wasting our time. ” Thuram announced his retirement from international football after Euro 2004 and was reluctant when coach Raymond Domenech asked him to return last year to help the team qualify for the finals in Germany. “I was not sure I could help out but he said he could select me against my will, which he did,” Thuram said. “That meant he had trust in me and I didn’t want any conflict with him,” he added, explaining why he had eventually decided to join Zinedine Zidane and Claude Makelele in returning to the national fold… “We weren’t a team there, we didn’t feel like a solid group and we had the impression we were wasting our time. ” Thuram announced his retirement from international football after Euro 2004 and was reluctant when coach Raymond Domenech asked him to return last year to help the team qualify for the finals in Germany. “I was not sure I could help out but he said he could select me against my will, which he did,” Thuram said. “That meant he had trust in me and I didn’t want any conflict with him,” he added, explaining why he had eventually decided to join Zinedine Zidane and Claude Makelele in returning to the national fold. After the World Cup, Thuram will quit the international game, for good this time. “For the moment I’m enjoying this World Cup but after that, given my age, it will be better for everybody if I stop,” he said. Zidane, too, is playing his last tournament for France.

?We deserve our victory,? said Zidane, who at 34 will retire from football after the World Cup. After a stuttering start to the tournament, he and his ageing teammates have rolled back the years to rediscover the spirit that carried them to glory in the 1998 World Cup on home soil. ?Now we will try and get into the final as we do not want it to end here. It is so wonderful that we want to carry on. ?
Brazil were puzzled and frustrated that its team, studded with global stars like Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and Kaka, failed to find the net, or any of their trademark panache. Coach Carlos Alberto Parreira admitted he had failed a country who were favourites to retain their crown. ?My duty was to get Brazil into the final and I must admit that I was not expecting this defeat… Most commentators said Wayne Rooney provoked his team?s exit by getting sent off for standing on the groin of Portuguese player Ricardo Carvalho, but David Beckham limping off with an injury in the second half also hit England?s hopes. Ten men hung on but Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher all had spot-kicks saved by Portugal ?keeper Ricardo while Cristiano Ronaldo ? a teammate of Rooney at Manchester United ? converted the decisive penalty. Victory was sweet for Portugal?s charismatic coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, who had masterminded victories over England at both the 2002 World Cup, when he was in charge of Brazil, and at Euro 2004 with Portugal. Germany is gearing up for a huge party tomorrow when Jurgen Klinsmann?s exciting young side will come up against the Italians, whose own success has come against the backdrop of a match-fixing scandal at home. ?

World Cup: Taking a quick look at Europe’s final four
Seattle Times – Jul 2, 2006
Back-to-back victories over Spain and Brazil were impressive. Why France might stumble: It is possible the French players’ legs might be weary after two energetic matches. Also, France did not look impressive in the first round, tying Switzerland and South Korea. GERMANY
Why Germany can win: The Germans are riding high, fueled by the host nation’s fans. Germany had not defeated any team of note entering the tournament, but in the quarterfinals, the Germans knocked off a powerful Argentina team. Miroslav Klose and Michael Ballack are bona fide stars, and Jens Lehmann is showing why coach Juergen Klinsmann has so much faith in him. Why Germany might stumble: Italy routed Germany 4-1 in March… Yes, it was only a friendly, but still. The Germans could have trouble penetrating Italy’s back line and stopping Luca Toni. PORTUGAL
Why Portugal can win: Brazilian coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, better known as “Big Phil,” won the World Cup with Brazil in 2002 and took Portugal to the Euro 2004 final, so he knows how to handle big games. The trio of forwards Luis Figo and Cristiano Ronaldo and midfielder Deco is as good as any three players in the Cup. Deco and Ronaldo have both scored a goal. Figo has two assists. Why Portugal might stumble: These Portuguese players haven’t gone this deep in a World Cup, and the inexperience could hurt them.

Validating Nietzsche’s idea of eternal recurrence
Hindu – Jul 3, 2006
But, in the end, when it comes to English football, nothing really changes. From the glory days of Paul Gascoigne down to his spiritual heir, Wayne Rooney, the more things are prodded on to change, the more they remain the same here. Euro 1996, World Cup 2002, Euro 2004. you name the tournament and we’ve seen it all, an almost sickening re-enactment of the same sort of drama. Nothing in the world of sport validates Friedrich Nietzsche’s famous idea of eternal recurrence as does English football… you name the tournament and we’ve seen it all, an almost sickening re-enactment of the same sort of drama. Nothing in the world of sport validates Friedrich Nietzsche’s famous idea of eternal recurrence as does English football. “The eternal hourglass of existence is turned over and over, and you with it, a grain of dust,” wrote the great philosopher in Thus Spake Zarathustra. What, then, is the fate today of tens of millions of dreams in this country? Nothing but a grain of dust. But, remember, dust will turn to fantasy again soon… But, remember, dust will turn to fantasy again soon. For, all things recur eternally; not the least, this cruel drama. Then again, not long after Beckham, Gerrard and Lampard trooped out of the stadium in Gelsenkirchen on Saturday, a brave Scot gave something to cheer about for those inclined to an altogether different sports watching experience – the garden party on the Wimbledon lawns. Andy Murray, who was at the centre of a storm recently after he was quoted in the press as saying that he didn’t care if England won or lost in the World Cup, played the finest match of his career to beat Andy Roddick, the third seed and a finalist here in 2004 and 2005, on the centre court late in the evening. Murray, who won 7-6(4), 6-4, 6-4 to make the fourth round, fought off three setpoints in the first set to win it in a tiebreak. He lost serve for the first time in the fifth game of the third but immediately broke back and then, again broke the American in the 10th to close out the match. “That’s got to be my best win,” said Murray, aged 19.

Mourinho told Portuguese TV: “There are not many Portuguese coaches with his record or status to motivate a team to reach this level of performance. “There is every reason for him to continue. I hope that is what happens. ”

Mourinho was also quick to praise Scolari’s man-management skills.

Penalties suit Germany, Portugal
TVNZ – Jul 4, 2006
Followers of Germany and Portugal, however, would probably notmind their path to the final being decided via penalties, whileFrench supporters might offer a Gallic shrug and take theirchances. To paraphrase former England striker Gary Lineker, penalties isa game for 10 players, then the Germans win. Shootouts certainly seem to hold no fear for German players, whohave missed only two of their 28 attempts in six major shootouts. Their victory over Argentina in the quarter-finals was their fourthfrom four attempts. Italy, in contrast, have lost all three of their World Cupshootouts while France have won two and lost one – the World Cup’sfirst against Germany in the 1982 semis… Portugal, while new to the format, are proving quick learners. Their two shoot-outs have both been against England, both in aquarter-final and both times goalkeeper Ricardo has been thehero. He saved one then scored the winner in Euro 2004 and saved threeof England’s four in last Saturday’s quarter-final in Gelsenkirchento cause the English to overhaul Italy as officially the world’sworst penalty-takers. The very mention of penalties is enough to bring on the shakesfor Italian fans, who missed out on the ultimate prize when Brazilwon the only World Cup final to be decided that way in 1994. That shootout was decided when Roberto Baggio blazed over thebar in Pasadena, instantly erasing all the incredible work he haddone to get his side to the final. Italy also lost to Argentina on home soil in the 1990 semis andto Netherlands in the last eight in 1998. With their exit four years ago coming via a South Korean “GoldenGoal” it is 20 years since they were knocked out of the World Cupby a conventional defeat, a 2-0 loss to France in the 1986 secondround.

Germany, three times World Cup winners, went out in the firstround at Euro 2004 and suffered a 4-1 humiliation by Italy in Marchthis year, the last in a series of poor results in friendlies. The Germans will face Italy again in the semi-finals in Dortmundon Tuesday and Bierhoff is confident his team’s five-match winningrun at the World Cup will give the Italians plenty of cause forconcern. “The world is scared of the German national team again,”Bierhoff, who is part of a four-man coaching team led by JuergenKlinsmann, said at a news conference on Saturday. “We’ve gained respect for playing a fast, direct aggressive gameand for always holding our nerve. Germany showed plenty of character to come back from a goal downand hold Argentina to a 1-1 draw at the end of 90 and 120 minutesin the quarter-finals on Friday before going on to clinch theirplace in the last four with a 4-2 win on penalties… “The humiliation of that defeat is still painful,” midfielderTorsten Frings told reporters on Saturday. “Our performance thatday was catastrophic. “But we’re so fit now, so well prepared, that we know it is notgoing to happen again.
