usChelsea’s Czech Republic goalkeeper Petr Cech has pinpointed the results of the weekend’s World Cup 2006 qualifying games as crucial to their hopes of reaching the Finals in Germany. Group One is evenly poised heading into the latest series of games with only a single point separating Holland at the top of the table and the Czechs in fourth position. The Chelsea ‘keeper realises a good result against Finland in Teplice could propel the national side into a strong position. “It is certainly going to be one of the key qualifiers as Holland are going to play against Romania in Bucharest,” Cech said. “One of them will certainly lose points and we have to take advantage of this and grab three points.

and the frightening thing for their rivals is that Ballack hasn’t actually been on top form!9 FERNANDO TORRES (Spain)Torres had plenty to live up to going into this tournament, with Manchester United just one of the European superpowers reported to be lining up bids in excess of ?20million for ‘El Nino’. That seemed a staggering amount for a man whose goals-to-game ratio both at club level and for Spain wasn’t that great but if anything his performances at the World Cup added another million or two to the price tag. Three goals helped Spain to the second round before their (almost inevitable) early exit. 10 MIROSLAV KLOSE (Germany)Simply impossible to leave out the Golden Boot winner particularly given some of the disappointing performances from more high-profile forwards in Germany. Clearly a big-game player, Klose thrives on the biggest stage of all… Three goals helped Spain to the second round before their (almost inevitable) early exit. 10 MIROSLAV KLOSE (Germany)Simply impossible to leave out the Golden Boot winner particularly given some of the disappointing performances from more high-profile forwards in Germany. Clearly a big-game player, Klose thrives on the biggest stage of all. 11 MAXI RODRIGUEZ (Argentina)Given the plethora of talented attacking players in the Argentine squad, Maxi Rodriguez’s presence as the only one of the Albicelestes in this team speaks volumes for his performances in Germany. Three goals from midfield including an absolute stunner in the second-round victory over Mexico earnt him the nod from our panel. Currently a team-mate of Torres’ at Atletico Madrid, it would be no surprise to see the 25-year-old joining a Champions League side before the new season gets under way.

We can look forward, however, to an open Six Nations, a tournament which was rejuvenated wonderfully last season by the re-emergence of champions Wales playing an all-attacking game. How refreshing that was after years of dominance by England and France. In the year before the next rugby World Cup the pressure will be on England coach Andy Robinson to discover the men capable of reproducing the feats of Martin Johnson and co in Sydney in 2003. Expect Leeds once more to be the team to beat in rugby league, a new star to emerge in jump racing following the death of Best Mate and Royal Ascot hopefully to be held at the revamped Ascot on what promises to be one of the world’s greatest race tracks. There is also the promise of an FA Cup final at the new Wembley, which has been 10 years in the making but at last gives English football a state-of-the-art home of which it can be proud. It has cost the best part of ?750million, seats will not be cheap nor tickets easy to come by, but imagine if soon after its opening it was to invite football lovers up and down the land to view the World Cup trophy… Expect Leeds once more to be the team to beat in rugby league, a new star to emerge in jump racing following the death of Best Mate and Royal Ascot hopefully to be held at the revamped Ascot on what promises to be one of the world’s greatest race tracks.

usItaly international Francesco Totti hasclaimed he may retire from international football after the 2006 World Cup. The Roma captain has hinted that the finals in Germany could be his lasttournament in Azzurri colours. “After the World Cup I could leave the national team,” said Totti in aninterview with Gazzetta dello Sport. “Everyone says that at the age of 30 you are still young but it is a thoughtthat I will seriously consider. Totti, who made his debut with the senior team in 1998, is hoping for bettertimes after the spitting incident in Euro 2004 that saw him make headlinesacross the world for the wrong reasons.

The former Auxerre forward scored in last month’s FA Cup final victory over West Ham but recently criticised manager Rafael Benitez and had looked likely to leave Anfield after the World Cup. He was linked with moves to Marseille and Tottenham throughout the season but insisted during the last transfer window that he wanted to stay with Liverpool. The injury overshadowed France’s win in their final World Cup warm-up game, although it was another unconvincing performance from Domenech’s men. In the end, they were grateful to substitute Franck Ribery, who sparked a late rally as France netted twice in the closing stages. First, the Marseille winger’s cross from the left was comically shinned past his own goalkeeper on the volley by China defender Wang Yun. Seconds later, Ribery played a neat one-two with Thierry Henry and, although he was beaten to the return by visiting keeper Li Leilei, the ball fell nicely for Henry to roll into the empty net from 30 yards. Earlier, David Trezeguet, Cisse’s replacement, put the hosts ahead only for Zhi to level from the spot… May – Wins Champions League with Liverpool, coming off the bench and scoring in penalty shoot-out against AC Milan in Istanbul. August – Scores twice as Liverpool beat CSKA Moscow to win European Super Cup. 2006: January – Reportedly unsettled and linked with a move to Tottenham but stays at Anfield. May – Scores as Liverpool beat West Ham in FA Cup final but criticises manager Rafael Benitez days later and again seems likely to leave the club. June 7 – Ruled out of World Cup after fracturing his right tibia in friendly against China in St Etienne.

The ball which crashed against the underside of the crossbar, Geoff Hurst’s famous third goal, still the only hat-trick recorded in a World Cup final, and of course the great Bobby Moore lifting the trophy. The surviving members of the England side which beat West Germany 4-2 at Wembley – Hurst, Big Jack Charlton, Roger Hunt, Alan Ball and the rest – were present in the futuristic World Cup stadium here, which looks like a giant white Michelin tyre, to launch a spectacular opening ceremony to the 18th World Cup. They were among a parade of 158 champions from the seven countries which have won the World Cup and who formed the largest group of international football stars ever gathered. England were first, by the way, not because of any privilege but because they were ranked on a least-won-first-out basis. Or in other words, save the best until the last. Which, of course, is Brazil, with five World Cup triumphs and who are favourites again this time. They provided the largest contingent with 55 past winners while Mario Kempes led out an Argentina contingent of 32 former champions… Nor the break-dancers, choreographed by Niels Robitzky, better known apparently as ‘Storm’ and a legend on the European dance scene. Well, that’s what it said in the brochure. As opening ceremonies go, however, World Cup 2006 had the benefit of being just a shade more than 30 minutes in duration, something to which organisers of recent boreathons at the Olympics and Commonwealth Games would do well to heed. German President Horst Kohler was admirably brief, his opening address given in typically clinical German fashion. Kohler said: “May the football help the countries to get closer together. “There followed the singing of the official FIFA anthem, ‘Celebrate the Day’, sung by Herbert Gronemeyer. Then the stage and the carpet which had been laid to protect the pitch were dismantled.

usBy Andy Hampson, PA SportFRANK LAMPARD (FOOTBALL)England went to the World Cup with the usual high expectations but once again came away having had little to cheer. Lampard was easily the most disappointing of their highly-paid, so-called world-class Premiership stars. The Chelsea man’s club form deserted him and shots that would normally fly in barely troubled goalkeepers in Germany. His partnership with Steven Gerrard was again a let-down. ANDRIY SHEVCHENKO (FOOTBALL)The Ukrainian great will come good soon enough but there is little doubt his initial appearances for Chelsea after his ?30million move from AC Milan were a disappointment.

Egypt was given credit for their experience in coping with large numbers of tourists as well as their history and culture but concerns about the lack of appropriate stadia needed to host the World Cup were raised. FIFA’s 23-man executive committee will take the final vote in Zurich on May 15. South Africa were also favourites for the 2006 World Cup but they lost by a single vote to Germany. In the race for 2006, the inspectors had rated South Africa and Germany best ahead of England and Morocco – a pattern that was also reflected in the vote. South Africa’s bid committee chief executive Danny Jordaan insisted he was taking nothing for granted. “This report strengthens our case significantly, it is very important to have a good bid but we have to keep working until the end,” he said.

With Eriksson departing after England’s exit or ecstacy, some may have you believe the pressure is off. However, at the age of 31, David Beckham may be playing in his last World Cup; Steven Gerrard finally needs to deliver on the big stage; Michael Owen is expected to better his previous best tournament goals tally of two; and that’s before we even get to the expectancy on Wayne Rooney’s shoulders. The players may be closeted away in their hotel deep in the Black Forest, but they cannot hide from the fervour of an entire nation. More than ever, at World Cup 2006, England expects. even in a penalty shoot-out.

BANKS MAKES 2006 BID ADMISSION
Sportinglife.com – Feb 8, 2007
usFormer sports minister Tony Banks has revealed the Government urged the Football Association to withdraw their bid to host the 2006 World Cup following crowd trouble at Euro 2000 which meant it was doomed to failure. Banks got the message that hooliganism in the Belgian town of Charleroi during that tournament effectively ended any hope of the already troubled bid being successful, but the Labour backbencher said the FA wanted to press on. Banks, speaking to BBC Radio Five Live on the day Chancellor Gordon Brown announced the Government were launching a feasibility study into hosting the 2018 World Cup, said: “Just a matter of three weeks before the decision on 2006 was taken, all the trouble kicked off in Charleroi. “We were told by people ‘we are not going to reward hooliganism’ and it was because of that that we actually tried to withdraw from the bid. We went to the FA and said ‘look, we don’t stand a chance’.

Domenech said: “Thierry was too short (of fitness) for the Switzerland matchbut I am hoping he will be available on Wednesday. For a good result it would bea boost to have him with us in Tel Aviv.

However, their 2006 campaign ended in a costly failure amid controversy over their perceived breaking of the so-called ‘gentleman’s agreement’ not to rival the Germans. Barwick is, meanwhile, hoping England can finally end their 40-year wait to match their 1966 success by succeeding in next summer’s tournament. “I see 2006 as a big year for the Football Association. Hopefully we will qualify for the World Cup and give it a real go,” he said. “If and when we qualify, we would go into the World Cup as one of the teams that can win it. It’s in the right climate and the right time-zone. “We have a very good team and are making impressions on European club football too.

FIFA have so far only backed Africa as hosts. Mbeki agreed the challenge of staging a successful tournament would be “huge”. “There’s been, by all accounts, a very successful 2006 World Cup. Germany has organised very well, so I think we understand the eyes of the world now turn on South Africa,” he said. “We have to focus very closely on all elements that concern the preparations for the World Cup, stadiums, transport, communications, security, all of these elements. “It’s going to be demanding work clearly, but the 2010 Local Organising Committee members have been in Germany the whole of this month seeing what the Germans have been doing.

Blokhin added he will turn to the Under-21 team for replacements. “I am disturbed with the fact that a lot of our players do not meet the high level of the national team. “I will register some players of youth national team for the World Cup. “Meanwhile, Ukraine have arranged two more friendlies ahead of the trip to Germany, the first against fellow qualifiers Costa Rica in Kiev on May 28.

Sir Clive Woodward suffered a huge blow to his credibility last night with the resignation of Simon Clifford, his right-hand man at Southampton. THE TIMES: England’s dazzling victory over Argentina not only boosted hopes for the 2006 World Cup but also brought an unprecedented sales rush yesterday for seats at the new Wembley Stadium, the most lavishly appointed venue in football. Punters, eager to see a World Cup triumph in Germany next summer, 40 years after Bobby Moore raised the trophy at the old Wembley, have bet more than ?500 million on England winning the competition, making Sven-Goran Eriksson’s team joint third favourites in the biggest single sporting competition on the planet. Also: So Ruud van Nistelrooy, the Holland and Manchester United striker, is a cheat. So Wayne Rooney, the England and United forward, is a diver. So Patrick Vieira, the France and Juventus midfield player and former Arsenal captain, has a book to promote.

Domenech therefore starts at point zero, with everything to gain. He has noticed a lack of fighting spark, and plans to re-ignite the players’desire, and Domenech believes ‘Les Bleus’ have sufficient talent to reclaimtheir World Cup title in two years’ time. “The main objective is to qualify to the 2006 World Cup, win it and most ofall re-create that spirit between the players and the French crowd which was sohuge six years ago,” he said. “Being capable of making the French people happy as a result of the nationalteam’s performance will definitely be part of my role. “I think France can win the World Cup again. We must believe in that but wealso must do what needs to be done to reach that aim. “This is not going to happen with a magic wand, success needs to be built upand well thought out… “I will try to get in touch with the players in the next two weeks, but mostof all I will discuss the future with the federation’s staff and managers. “The national coach is never a lonely man, I need to work with them all. The factor which swayed France Football Federation president Claude Simonet -and the FFF’s federal council – in Domenech’s favour, was his affinity with thecurrent squad. Of the 23 players selected for Euro 2004, only Fabien Barthez, BixenteLizarazu, Marcel Desailly, Steve Marlet and Jerome Rothen had never played for aDomenech-led Under-21 side. With only Rothen of that quintet likely to remain a key component of theFrance squad beyond the next couple of years, the FFF’s decision seems to befounded on sound logic. Domenech has two years in which to prove himself. “The first objective will be to qualify for the 2006 World Cup, the second toreach the semi-finals of the World Cup,” Simonet said.
