First time Giaccherini has been seen in public since the 2013 Confederations Cup
Dating back to 2013 Confederations Cup, is 4-0 (4 shutous) in tourney play with Not Iker Casillas in goal, and 1-3-1 with him starting.

Continuing our early analysis of the World Cup groups. Group B: Spain Netherlands Chile Australia Spain topped the Netherlands in the final four years ago, but the Dutch can get revenge in their first game of this world cup. The Netherlands has had an up and down four years since the encounter in South Africa versus Spain. They flamed out at European Championships in 2012 but they cruised through qualification behind the likes of Robin Van Persie. Spain's pedestal as Kings of Soccer began to wobble after Brazil beat them in the Confederations Cup 2013 championship game but it is hard to vote against the likes of Xavi, Iniesta, and Pique. Chile is a sleeper in the tournament. They beat Spain earlier this year in a friendly and quick players like Alexis Sanchez can't be taken lightly. Though this is a challenging and unpredictable group, one thing is for certain, the seemingly ancient Aussies don't stand much of a chance.

one of the most unsung hero in football world Fernando Torres won another golden boot in the Confederations Cup 2013 though his side failed to win the cup in the final at Maracana. Whenever people criticizes him re replies with a golden boot. For the last two and a half year was not as good as his standard by getting an injury in the world cup final against the Dutches. The injury that he got in that world cup final lost his pace but the touch and skill he has and his enthusiasm towards football he is recovering and i hope El Nino will come hard like he was at Anfield. His pace,Controll and skill with the ball made him one of the devastating striker in the world. If he joins Arsenal as wenger wants him to join Arsenal then n with Podolski,wallcott, cazorla will be a deadly combination cause i think chelsea's playing style not suits Torres. Last year his combination with Mata, Hazard, Lampard and Oscar was also good but as crazy Mourinho doesn't have Mata, Oscar and Torres in his starting line up this seas ...
Congrats to Brazil on winning the Confederations Cup 2013. A very disciplined and clinical performance from Brazil. Scolari had got the tactics spot on and the pressing was awesome though I would still like to say that the first goal swung the balance in Brazil's favour. But Spain had their chances to get back into the game- a penalty miss from Ramos, 2 close range shots from Pedro and 1 from Villa- all saved by Julio Cesar. But it just wasn't their day. A day when everything went wrong. Would like to mention that Paulinho, Marcelo, Neymar and Dani Alves were instrumental in what Brazil did last night. Iniesta gave his best shot but Spain needs to strengthen their defence and defensive midfield a lot. Perhaps they should make tactical changes to the tiki-taka style of play. Won't say it is finished but some sort modification is required. And Villa should still be in the starting lineup no matter what. Is it time to move the likes of Isco, De Gea, Montoya, Inigo Martinez to the senior squad??? Is it time t ...

Brazil vs Spain: live on ESPN, other TV channels – Confederations Cup 2013 final read on to bottom for time and USA channels By Angela Asante, June 30 2013, 1 Comment The Neymar factor heats up the Brazil vs Spain Confederations Cup 2013 final. Watch it live on any online or TV channel in USA and worldwide. Check out live streaming and TV info! The players that are going to be involved in the Confederations Cup final know each other’s faces too much. The game will be a mix-up of mainly Barcelona, Real Madrid and Chelsea stars; Sergio Ramos, Iker Casillas, Shakira’s husband Gerard Pique, Fernando Torres, David Luiz and the list of Blanco, Catalan and Blue names goes on… Evidently, a certain matchup stands out above the rest: it is the meeting between Neymar and his new Barca team mates. Will the Brazil number 10 forward play the villain by single-handedly upsetting favourites Spain or will he suffer from intimidation towards the greatness of Xavi, Iniesta and company? If Uruguay thought they had f ...

Confederations Cup 2013: Spain book Italy date in Confed Cup semis. =D =D Spain set up a Confederations Cup semi-final reunion with Euro 2012 final victims Italy after beating Nigeria 3-0 on a steamy afternoon in Fortaleza on Sunday to secure top spot in Group B. Vicente del Bosque’s side needed just a point to confirm a place in the last four, but they made doubly sure thanks to a fine brace of goals from Jordi Alba and a 62nd-minute header by substitute Fernando Torres. The world and European champions will now face Italy, who they crushed 4-0 in last year’s Euro 2012 final, in the second semi-final in Fortaleza on Thursday, a day after Brazil meet Uruguay in Belo Horizonte. Spain introduced David Silva and Torres from the bench and within minutes of coming on the Chelsea striker made it 2-0, flinging himself at Pedro Rodriguez’s left-wing cross to score with a glorious flying header. Having scored four times in the record-breaking 10-0 rout of Tahiti earlier this week, Torres is now the tournamen ...

"Howard Webb appointed referee for tomorrow’s FIFA Confederations Cup 2013 match between Brazil and Mexico:
To those wondering "participation of Tahiti at FIFA Confederations Cup 2013, Brazil. The tournament has to have an even # of eight teams. The teams must be the champions in their respective confederations or hosts for the FIFA World Cup to be played 12 months later(some of the conditions). These conditions suit all the teams currently at the tournament, BUT Italy. I guess its because they were runners - up to Spain in the Euro 2012 tournament (Europe being the confederation with the best coefficient on FIFA rankings). Tahiti are the champions of the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC). Teams in OFC include American Samoa, Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Niue, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tahiti, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanutau. Kiribati, Niue, and Tuvalu aren't FIFA members. Only three of these countries have a population higher than 300 000 pipo. Australia used to be the member of OFC but they have since joined the Asian Confederation. Ridiculously OFC has no guarantee for ...

Nigeria's Group B fixtures *.17 June:Tahiti in Belo Horizonte *.20 June: Uruguay in Salvador *.23 June: Spain in Fortaleza HOW DO THEY PLAY? Keshi initially adopted a 4-4-2 formation but has favoured a fluid, attacking 4-3-3 since the tail-end of last year. The Super Eagles attack with paceand width, although the absence through injury of Victor Moses has denied thema key threat up front. Moses's Chelsea team-mate John Mikel Obi is one of two midfielders who will provide defensive stability.
