He is the only referee in the Caribbean to have been selected to officiate at two World Cup finals. Injury

The Jamaican was selected, along with fellow regional assistant referees Anthony Garwood of Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago’s Joseph Taylor, among a shortlist of 23 officials for Germany 2006, but he was forced to withdraw as he damaged his knee in that country while undergoing final preparations just days ahead of the tournament… – Contributed

Forget Pele: Walcott has more to learn from Harrison

And he will need to be every inch a teenage marvel if he is to play for England against Paraguay, Trinidad and Tobago and Sweden in the World Cup this summer without having played for Arsenal against the likes of Birmingham, West Bromwich Albion and Portsmouth during the closing weeks of the Premiership. Of course, we were all waiting for Sven-Goran Eriksson to pull a rabbit out of his hat to divert the nation’s attention from the probability that Wayne Rooney will be an absentee but I, for one, was stunned when he produced a 17-year-old bunny who had yet to play a first-team game for his club. If you think David Blaine’s tricks are bizarre, meet Sven-Goran. Even if master Walcott, who seems like an eminently likeable laddie, is half as good as everyone appears to think he is, then South Africa 2010 would have been soon enough to strand him in the World Cup spotlight… And he will need to be every inch a teenage marvel if he is to play for England against Paraguay, Trinidad and Tobago and Sweden in the World Cup this summer without having played for Arsenal against the likes of Birmingham, West Bromwich Albion and Portsmouth during the closing weeks of the Premiership.

Just as with the luckless Rooney before him, Walcott has already attracted comparisons with Pele, who became a World Cup winner on June 15, 1958 at the age of 17 years and 235 days when he scored two goals in Brazil’s 5-2 defeat of Sweden in Stockholm.

It is one of the worst-kept secrets in football circles that rivalry between Khoza and Jordaan date back when Jordaan was CEO of the South African Football Association. However, both have disputed any suggestion of conflict between them. Asked about the state of their relationship, Jordaan reiterated that he and Khoza ?worked fine? together, and lashed out at the South African media for ?irresponsible reporting and sensationalising issues?. The 2010 LOC boss said it was time the South African media decided whether they wanted the World Cup or not. ?Never in my life have I witnessed something like this.

Telegraph.co.uk – Dec 5, 2006
There was plenty of opposition. Talks were held with the Twickenham authorities, and several Premiership grounds were touted. The new landmark on the banks of the Taff had only been completed in time for the 1999 rugby World Cup, and although the Welsh national football team had moved in, the Millennium Stadium had no tradition. Whatever will be, will be. We’re going to the Principality’. It just didn’t sound right.

These teams are not intimidated like they were many years ago. ”

Arena noted that in 1990, when the US team ended a 40-year World Cup qualifying drought, it would have been unthinkable to beat a second-ranked Czech team. Now the Americans are fifth entering Monday’s Group E match at Gelsenkirchen.

Jones keen on England job
Namibian – Dec 5, 2006
Jones, who took Australia to the World Cup final in 2003 where they lost to England flyhalf Jonny Wilkinson’s last-minute drop goal, was sacked a year ago following a run of eight defeats in nine games. Currently in charge of Super 14 side the Queensland Reds, Jones told Britain’s Sunday Times he would happily take on the England role through next year’s World Cup and could also be interested in a long-term role. Robinson left his post last week and elite director of rugby Rob Andrew said he did not rule out the possibility of a first-ever non-Englishman taking charge. "Having coached at international level I would like to do so again and a job coaching England is one of the biggest in the world," Jones said. "Nobody wants to see England doing poorly because it is not in the interests of the game globally, so if the RFU (Rugby Football Union) asked me to look at a 10-month contract through to the end of the World Cup I would most definitely give it serious consideration… Robinson left his post last week and elite director of rugby Rob Andrew said he did not rule out the possibility of a first-ever non-Englishman taking charge.
