E para mostrar que o meu post de guerra contra o BRICS não é delirio de esquerda, materia publicada no Financial Tmes The Financial Times (UK) - November 3, 2014 Cracks in the Brics start to show By Gideon Rachman Historians may record that Brics mania reached its height during the 2014 football World Cup in Brazil. President Dilma Rousseff used the occasion to host a summit of the leaders of the five Brics: Brazil itself, Russia, India, China and South Africa. The formation of a new Brics development bank was announced, with its headquarters in Shanghai. The only thing that spoiled Rousseff’s Brics party was that it took place against the backdrop of the spectacular defeat of the Brazilian national team in the tournament — 7-1 to Germany. A few months later, it is beginning to feel as if the Brics may ultimately prove as much of a disappointment as the host side. There are three big emerging problems with the Brics story. The first is economic. Three of the five nations involved — Brazil, Russia ...
In an effort to scale up services for HIV/AIDS, the Ministry of Health, Uganda AIDS Commission, the UN family (UNAIDS, UNFPA, WHO, UNICEF, WFP,) and Partners are launching a national campaign using football and other sports as a platform to raise awareness about HIV and mobilize young people to commit to HIV prevention and access services. The campaign dubbed “Protect the Goal Campaign” was started by the UNAIDS Executive Director, Michel Sidibe, and was first launched at the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa and later on in Brazil in 2014. This global advocacy initiative harnesses the power of sports that attracts millions of people, to bring HIV into public domain. Following the International launch, the Heads of African States including our President, H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, at the 23rd Ordinary Session of African Union meeting held in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea from 23rd to 27th June 2014, then committed themselves to the Global "Protect the Goal" Campaign and signed on the symbol – the bal ...

JONATHAN HAD ORDERED KESHI BE REINSTATED Stephen Keshi could be set for a surprise return as coach of African champions Nigeria after the apparent intervention of the country's President Goodluck Jonathan. Keshi, who steered the Super Eagles to Africa Cup of Nations glory in 2013 and the knock-out stage of this year's World Cup Finals, was sacked on October 16 after a string of poor performances. But several senior officials at the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have revealed that Jonathan had ordered Keshi be reinstated and given a contract. Should that happen, he would be on the bench for Nigeria's next Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Congo and South Africa in November. Keshi, who was in talks on Thursday with sports minister Tammy Danagogo, said he was unaware of any presidential intervention. But he added: "If the president of my country asked me to return, who am I to refuse?" The 52-year-old coach had earlier refused to comment on speculation that he could be reinstated, with a power str ...

OccupyGhana Caution Statement to Government: Do NOT host AFCON 2015! On 17 October 2014, Minister of Youth and Sports, Mr. Mahama Ayariga, announced that Ghana is ready to stage the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) competition slated for January and February 2015. The original host, Morocco has officially written to the Confederation of African Football (CAF) saying it is no longer interested in hosting the competition because of the ravaging cases of Ebola and the WHO's heightened risk alerts of the disease spreading through social gatherings such as the tournament. For the same reason, South Africa, the other country aside Ghana CAF approached as alternative hosts, has issued a strongly worded letter that it cannot welcome Ebola from potential participating nations Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Ghana, which has a less developed healthcare system than Morocco and South Africa, should not volunteer or accept to host AFCON 2015. The Ghana Medical Association (GMA) strongly advises against it. The GMA an ...
Nigeria vs Sudan fallout: Chukwu asks Keshi to resign: Former Super Eagles’ manager, Christian Chukwu, has passionately asked Super Eagles caretaker coach, Stephen Keshi , to resign honourably. The African champions suffered a shock 0-1 defeat to Sudan’s Falcons of Jediane in Saturday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match at the Municipal Stadium in Khartoum, Sudan, supersport.com reports. Forward, Bakeber Bakri scored the match winner in the 42nd minute to hand his side the three points. Nigeria now sits at the base of Group A in the 2015 AFCON qualification on one point, Sudan moved to the third spot, while South Africa leads on seven points, followed by Congo on six points. Shocked by Eagles’ unexpected defeat in the hands of the Sudanese, Chukwu said Keshi does not need to wait any longer but take the exit option. “This is football for you, Keshi won the 2013 AFCON title and took us to the Fifa World Cup in Brazil and everyone was completely happy. “Now that he has not done well so far ...
:FOOTBALL NEWS: (10TH OCT 2014) * Antonio Conte said Italy are desperate to remain on track as they attempt to maintain the interest of their supporters. Italy has played second fiddle to its national club competition - Serie A - amid the team's struggles for identity in recent years. Since winning the World Cup in 2006, Italy have failed to make it out of the group stage in both South Africa and Brazil, where they were jeered, whistled at and insulted according to former coach Cesare Prandelli after finishing behind Costa Rica and Uruguay. Italy's failure at the 2014 showpiece cost Prandelli his job, with Conte stepping into the hot seat. The former Juventus boss has overseen back-to-back wins since taking the reins, a 2-0 international friendly triumph against Netherlands followed by victory over Norway by the same scoreline in their opening Euro 2016 qualifier last month. And Conte is hoping to entertain the fans and dominate the headlines when Italy host minnows Azerbaijan in Group H action in Palermo ...

Braking News "…" Andy Moles Become Afganistan batting coach*=== Afghanistan batting coach, Andy Moles has been promoted as the head coach of the Afghanistan national team following Kabir Khan's recent resignation. Moles had been working as Afghanistan's batting coach for less than a year, having been appointed in June, last year.

Zimbabwe humiliation rips open Aus scars 01 September 2014, 08:24 Australia's shock one-day international defeat to minnows Zimbabwe has raised alarm bells five months before the country co-hosts the World Cup while exposing the team's continued struggles to master spin bowling. Coming off a long break following test series wins against England and South Africa, Australia arrived in Harare for the triangular one-day tournament with South Africa refreshed and optimistic, but the three-wicket loss to Zimbabwe will have done little for the team's confidence after defeat to the Proteas and an injury to captain Michael Clarke. Sunday's loss was Australia's first in 30 years to Zimbabwe and the nation's media ranked it highly among the country's deepest cricketing humiliations. "There's one word that's been used more than any other to describe Australia's defeat at the hands of Zimbabwe on Sunday," one critic wrote on a News Ltd website on Monday. "Embarrassing." Clarke, who battled to an unbeaten 68 and retire ...

Stoke City winger Osaze Odemwingie is the only surprise omission from the Super Eagles list of invitees called to camp by the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) ahead of the impending African Cup of Nations qualifiers in September. As the qualifying rounds ahead of the 2015 African Cup of Nations begin, the Super Eagles face Congo’s Red Devils in Calabar on September 6 before flying to Cape Town to take on South Africa's Bafana Bafana on September 10. In preparation for both games, the NFF has called up 23 players with very few surprises. So far, the only two big names left out are Osaze and midfielder Michael Babatunde who broke an arm at the World Cup and had to be stretchered off. It appears both were left out due to injuries as Osaze did not feature at all for his club in the opening game of the Premier League. Leftback Elderson Echiejile of Monaco who missed out on the World Cup after picking up an injury in a warm-up friendly a week before the tournament gets a recall, however. So too does Schalk ...

Webb retires from refereeing to become PGMOL technical director The former policeman has been a Premier League official since 1998 and has taken charge of Champions League and World Cup Finals in a long and established career By Sam Lee 6 Aug 2014 13:20:00 Howard Webb has retired from refereeing to become techincal director at Professional Game Match Officials Limited. Webb, 43, started his refereeing career in 1989 and oversaw his first Premier League match in October 2003, before being added to Fifa's international referees' list two years later. In 2010 he took charge of the Champions League Final between Inter and Bayern Munich, and then the World Cup Final in South Africa as Spain beat the Netherlands. Webb's new role will include "overseeing the technical direction and standards that govern the on-field performance of PGMOL’s match officials", according to an official statement. He will also be responsible for the training and coaching of referees, as well as "informing and educating" the public o ...

Colombian pop singer Shakira will give a musical performance at the World cup closing ceremony. The ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ singer will perform her new World Cup song: ‘La La La (Brazil 2014)’ which features the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar Jr, Sergio Aguero, Cesc Fabregas, Eric Abidal, James Rodriguez, Radamel Falcao, her 18-month-old son Milan and her partner Gerard Pique on Sunday, July 13, 2014 at the Maracana Stadium, Rio de Janeiro, ahead of the final game. She said in a statement: ‘I have an intricate relationship with football for obvious reasons, and I truly understand what the World Cup means to so many people, myself included. The fans have shown the most incredible support for this song and I can’t wait to perform it for them.’ Shakira, who also performed the official song, ‘Waka Waka’ at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa will be joined at this year’s closing ceremony by Carlos Santana and Wyclef Jean, who will sing the official anthem ‘Dar Um Jeito’ alongside Brazil’s A ...
Why 'Sack' Keshi? When Stephen Okechukwu Keshi was hired to tinker the Super Eagles immediately the man on the job, Samson Siasia failed to qualified Nigeria for the Nations Cup, I shouted the Big Boss was the wrong choice. I had my reasons. But because the ex-Anderlect of Belgium Captain proved me wrong, I’m not in the mood to start recounting those unpalatable reasons here. In less than two years of signing dotted lines for the Nigerian Football Federation, Keshi has not only achieved his immediate task of qualifying Nigeria for the following Nations Cup in South Africa but he also surpassed his semi-final target by lifting the trophy, hence becoming the first Nigerian coach to achieve such feat. He went further to qualify Nigeria for her fifth World Cup Finals … won a match for Nigerian in Brazil after 16 years of pathetic outings. And of course, got to the second round after 16 years too. He again became the first Nigerian to get us beyond the first round. In the process of these laudable landmark ...
It is no longer news to mention how Ghana’s Black Stars agitated for their appearance fees of US$100k before playing in their last World Cup match with Portugal, how Ghanaian duo Sulley Muntari and Kevin Prince Boateng were sacked from camp for indiscipline, how US$3 million was airlifted to Brazil breaking every international forex law, how an official was slapped and on and on, all during Ghana’s participation in the World Cup. However, Kevin Prince Boateng (a Black Star and Schalke player) has given his side of the story. To every story, they say, there are two sides. Boateng returned to play for the Black Stars just last year after he announced his international retirement after the 2010 Mundial in South Africa. According to an interview he granted a German newspaper, he agreed to play again for Ghana under certain conditions. He claimed the Ghana Football Association (GFA) president Kwesi Nyantakyi visited him in Milan to beg him to play for Ghana with the assurance of better travel, preparation ...
Alejandro Sabella - Bramall Lane to Brazil Alejandro Sabella might not be a cigar-smoking, earring-wearing national icon who unleashes expletive-laden tirades and attracts more publicity than most of his players combined. But the current Argentina coach carries no less expectation than the last man who led them at the last World Cup in the eyes of a country desperate to see their 28-year wait for a third title brought to a glorious end, especially on enemy territory. Sabella is attempting to succeed where Maradona failed in South Africa four years ago by guiding the Albiceleste to a first World Cup triumph since Maradona himself captained them to victory at the 1986 tournament in Mexico. The only time Sabella, 59, has attracted any noticeable attention outside Argentina during this competition was when striker Ezequiel Lavezzi squirted him with water on the touchline during the Nigeria game.

Stephen Keshi is Out, Joseph Yobo Out after defeat to FRANCE Stephen Keshi has announced he is stepping down as Nigeria coach following the World Cup defeat to France, while defender Joseph Yobo has retired from international football. The 52-year-old, who took over in 2011, has been linked with the South Africa job. Read Gist:
The Super Eagles bowed out of the World Cup at the last 16 stage on Monday and their boss has stepped aside from the hotseat. Stephen Keshi has resigned as head coach of Nigeria following their World Cup elimination at the hands of France. The Super Eagles could not progress past the last 16 of the tournament, losing 2-0 to Les Bleus on Monday thanks to a Paul Pogba header and a Joseph Yobo own goal, both of which came late in the game. Keshi has stepped aside before only be to convinced to return, after the Confederations Cup last summer, but is set to move on to pastures new, with the post as South Africa coach identified as a possible alternative.

WITH EMMAH ATAI: As the world cup showdown nears it’s climax, revenge is on the mind of many Algerians. The north Africans are ready to make Germany pay for one of the shadier moments in World Cup history. Algeria were eliminated from the 1982 finals in Spain in controversial fashion as West Germany beat Austria 1-0 in the final group game - a result that sent the European neighbours through at the expense of the African underdogs. Now, 32 years after the 'Disgrace in Gijon', Algeria face the Germans again tonight at 11pm- on the back of creating history. The 2014 World Cup is the first at which more than one African nation has made it past the group stage, with Nigeria facing a fearsome-looking France side in the day's first last-16 match at 7pm. History could be made in tonight's second match. Germany forward Miroslav Klose is level with Brazil legend Ronaldo on 15 World Cup goals after scoring in the 2-2 draw with Ghana in the group stages, and this may be the 36-year-old's last chance to claim that ...
Magic Kingdom by Eduardo Galeano (July 2010) Pacho Maturana, Colombian, a man of vast experience in these matters, says that football is a Magic Kingdom, where anything can happen. The recent World Cup confirmed his words: it was a strange World Cup. Strange were the ten stadiums where the matches were held, beautiful, immense, which cost a fortune. No one knows what South Africa will do to keep these cement giants in operation, a multimillion-dollar waste that is easy to explain but difficult to justify in one of the most unequal countries in the world. Strange was the Adidas ball, half mad, which kept slipping out of hands like a soap and disobeying feet. The so-called Jabulani was imposed on the players, who didn't like it in the least. From their castle in Zurich, the masters of football impose, rather than propose. Such is their custom. Strange it was that, at last, the all-powerful bureaucracy of the FIFA recognized, at least, after so many years, that it was necessary to study how to help refe ...
5 things we learnt from Nigeria vs Argentina * 1- Payback for Messi When Nigeria faced Argentina at the last World Cup in South Africa, it was a personal duel between Lionel Messi and Vincent Enyeama. The Lille goalkeeper repelled the Barcelona forward time and time again, even though Gabriel Heinze eventually secured a 1-0 win for the South Americans. In 2014, there was nothing Enyeama could do about Messi’s brace. The first was an emphatic finish from a loose ball inside the area, while the second was a sublime free-kick before half time. 2- Di Maria vs Enyeama If Messi succeeded in breaking his jinx against Enyeama, Di Maria opened another personal duel with the Eagles vice-captain. It was the turn of the Real Madrid ace to be shut out by Enyeama. 3- Mikel Obi is not the answer The Chelsea midfielder was simply pathetic in this game. Played with no pace, no desire and no skill. Many times, Mikel Obi who was the second Best Player behind Lionel Messi at the World Youth Championship in 2005, exposed hi ...
Fifa World Cup: Uruguay send Italy packing as Luis Suarez 'bites' again In the most crucial match of the day, Uruguay beat four-time champions Italy 1-0 to seal a place in the last 16 on Tuesday. Uruguay skipper Diego Godin scored the only goal of the match in the 81st minute of the game through a header to throw Cesare Prandelli`s Italy out of the tournament. Italy, who needed at least a draw to cross the Group stage, suffered a major blow when Claudio Marchisio was shown red card in the 59th minute for stamping down on Egidio Arevalo`s shin. In a rough game, the star striker of Uruguay Luis Suarez once again hogged the limelight, though for a wrong reason, when Italy`s Giorgio Chiellini accused him of biting him on the shoulder. In fact, the defender pulled his shirt off to make the referee believe that he was Suarez`s latest bite-victim. FIFA officials are investigating claims by Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini that Uruguay`s Luis Suarez bit him during Tuesday`s World Cup match. FIFA said they would w ...

Here’s a World Cup story I always like to tell. Only a few people know about it. It’s not an actual story about the World Cup per say. Rather, it’s more of a story of how World Cup fever combined with alcohol and an all-nighter can give you some pretty vivid dreams.   It’s nothing special really. Just a story about going to work, hanging out at a bar, and the crazy dream I had after.   Four years ago when I used to matter (I say that cause I did a soccer show for sports talk radio), the US took on England in what turned out to be a memorable tie in South Africa. The hype from his game had been building up for months, ever since David Beckham drew the US from a glass bowl to be as England’s opponent.   When 1560 AM The Game in Houston used to actually matter and had freedom to do things like a daily World Cup soccer show, I was on it baby. Football was basically my life that summer. I’d wake up read columns, articles, news, or whatever it was I could get my hands one.   I’m glad I remembe ...
Super Eagles Manager, Stephen Keshi has landed a two-year deal with the South African Football Association (SAFA) to take over the coaching job of Bafana Bafana immediately after the ongoing Brazil 2014 World Cup. A source close to the coach and NFF confirmed that Keshi would stop to be Eagles manager after the mundial, since he had accepted to take the offer from South Africa. According to our source, the “Big Boss” would head to Jo’burg straight from Brazil to sign the dotted lines and be unveiled by the South Africans once he is through with the World Cup assignment. It would be noted had South Africa had last month sacked Bafana Bafana manager, Gordon Igesund after their friendly against Australia. “I can confirm to you that the deal between Keshi and SAFA has been signed and sealed. He is going to South Africa imme­diately after the World Cup. The South Africans are impressed with what he has done with the Eagles and want him to turn around the fortunes of Bafana Bafana,” our source said. ...

At the World Cup in South Africa in 2010, the BBC sent its ‘Team’ of commentators and pundits. They hired a hotel room/studio which looked out onto the outside of a football stadium, from which to broadcast their coverage. Gary Lineker and three pundits then watched the games on TV and then displayed their talents and wisdom at stating the blindingly obvious to the rest of us, about the same TV coverage that we had just watched. This year, more or less the same bunch of pundits and Lineker are sat in a room/studio overlooking the Copacabana, which I’ll wager does not come cheap. Lineker compares the show by reading from an autocue and the expensive pundits then all have a nice intimate chat, a bit of a laugh amongst themselves and state the blindingly obvious about what they and us have watched on TV (We all watch exactly the same TV coverage) Bit like being down the pub really. Note: They don't actually go to any of the games. And then we get the stunning commentaries during the games. E.g. quote . ...

What became of the glory boys of 1966 World Cup (Source Express . a sunny afternoon in the old Wembley Stadium, England defeated West Germany 4-2 in the World Cup Final. The 11 players who wore the red shirt with Three Lions on it were immortalised in the game’s folklore. What their triumph didn’t assure those players, however, was financial security. Whereas the players who will represent England this summer in the World Cup in South Africa are guaranteed multi-million pound fortunes whether they lift the trophy or not, many of the boys of ’66 have been haunted by money worries ever since. The hat-trick hero of that day Sir Geoff Hurst last week launched a legal action after claiming he had lost £600,000 in a holiday flats development scam on Spain’s Costa del Sol. But his woes hardly make him ­unusual among the surviving team-mates from the greatest day in England’s football history. “There were no Jaguars or any big cars like that back in those days,” says one of them, Sir Bobby Charlto ...
won their opener at the 2014 World Cup just as they did in South Africa four years ago, keeper Diego Benaglio says, “Of course, the atmosphere is good, but I think that everyone who was involved four years ago is wary of what can happen. We've learnt our lesson.”
The usual blame game and recriminations after an England loss continues with the defeat to Uruguay yesterday.The players are gutted,the fans are in total despair,and the media has gone into overdrive analysing the various reasons and factors for the England loss.They want heads to roll and looking for a scapegoat.The memories of 4 years ago in Bloemfontein,South Africa have come back flooding fresh. The debate started before and after England's loss to Italy in their opening game with the talking point mainly centered around Wayne Rooney and Roy Hodgson's decision to deploy him on the left side instead of his favourite No.10 position. After yesterday's defeat however,wide ranging questions are now being asked about the squad selection for the World Cup in general and the manager's wisdom to leave such experienced hands as Ashley Cole at home and his failure to convience good old John Terry to turn up for England one more time in a major tournament. Others say England just lack a genuine world class team t ...

Plus point for English sport is the England Under-20 rugby team beat South Africa to win the World Cup this morning, it's not all that bad
CRICKET SOUTH AFRICA (CSA) today named exciting under-19 fast bowler, Kagiso Rabada, as one of several new caps at this level in the South Africa A squad to travel to Australia for a series of four-day matches against Australia A as well as a triangular limited overs series that also includes India A.   Rabada was one of the stars of South Africa’s successful campaign earlier this year to win the ICC under-19 World Cup.   Other players chosen at SA A level for the first time are batsmen, David White, Khaya Zondo and Cody Chetty, wicketkeeper Mangaliso Mosehle, left-arm seamer Mthokozisi Shezi and leg-spinner Eddie Leie.   Justin Ontong will captain both the four-day and one-day squads while Proteas squad member Rory Kleinveldt has also been included as he starts his comeback from injury.   “It was only a year ago that the South Africa A squad included the likes of Beuran Hendricks and Dane Piedt who have gone on to earn senior national colours, so the opportunity and incentive is there for others ...
Brotherly love on hold 2014-06-20 FORTALEZA - Brotherly love will be forgotten tomorrow when Germany's Jerome Boateng faces his sibling once more at a World Cup with Ghana's Kevin-Prince Boateng predicting a "fight to the death". The half-brothers were born in Berlin, Germany, to separate mothers, but in 2009, Schalke's Kevin-Prince, 27, opted to play for the country of his father. He turned to Ghana having become discouraged by a perceived lack of opportunities even after the brothers had made a single appearance in the same Germany Under-21 team. The brothers normally have daily contact via SMS or telephone, but there has been silence as they prepare for the Fortaleza clash in Group G. "We've had no contact recently, each of us is just concentrating on himself," said Bayern Munich's Jerome. The 25-year-old will face Ghana with a splint on his right hand, having torn a thumb ligament in Germany's opening 4-0 win over Portugal. This is not the first time the brothers have played each other at a World Cup. ...
HOW AND WHY SPAIN IS OUT BY SUNDAY OLISEH A hungry, agressive and highly-motivated Chilean side sent defending champions Spain out of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. “Tiki Taka” is struggling and needs an update and it seems that humans can also get tired of winning even if they are not conscious of it. For the past seven years this nation has dominated the headlines. Players like Xavi, Iniesta, Busquets, David Silva and Xavi Alonso have been performing at the highest level week in, week out and now it's clear they are burned out. In the space of two World Cup first-round matches, Spain conceded more goals than it conceded in the entire World Cup in South Africa. What went wrong? Tiki Taka went wrong. Tiki taka has lost a crucial ingredient. Has it ever struck you how Spain's fortunes seem to be synonymous with that enjoyed by Barcelona? Barcelona's domination of European and world soccer really hit a high from 2006 as they beat Arsenal 2-1 to clinch the Champions League. The next step for Spain's natio ...

Captain Iker Casillas said there was lack of commitment, midfielder Xabi Alonso thought there wasn't enough hunger. According to Fernando Torres, Spain was "just not good enough." ( Full match report | Match in pics | Highlights) Chile's 2-0 victory on Wednesday meant the 2010 World Cup champion is the first title holder to exit after just two games following the opening 5-1 loss to the Netherlands. Spain's squad of 23 players featured 16 who were part of its World Cup success in South Africa. Casillas, Alonso and Xavi Hernandez had been the engine behind the team's triumphs on the world stage, but were left exposed in Brazil. "We didn't know how to maintain our hunger or that conviction needed to win a tournament. The joy and success we've experienced is over," Alonso said from the Maracana Stadium. "We lost our knowhow, which has helped us win so many of these important games. It doesn't feel like our other tournaments." Spain's players agreed that they did not read their opponents well, or know when to ...
Thomas Müller has a sixth sense for that goal every time you power on the World Cup. In South Africa 2010 Golden Boot proclaimed
Diego Forlán. Forever the best striker of any team. No doubt he will shine in this World Cup like he did in South Africa four years ago.
Re: Some stars shining at World Cup, others remain dim Posted on Jun 17 via The Associated Press RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) After just one match each, Robin Van Persie and Lionel Messi have already equaled their goal tallies from their previous two World Cups combined. Two of football's biggest stars are finally shining where it matters most. While it has taken Van Persie and Messi three tournaments to find their feet, other strikers seem to thrive on the pressure-cooker atmosphere of the World Cup from day one. Thomas Mueller, joint tournament top scorer with five in South Africa four years ago, grabbed a hat trick Monday as Germany hammered Portugal 4-0. And with the weight of the football-loving host nation resting on his slender shoulders, 22-year-old Neymar slotted two goals on his World Cup debut as Brazil beat Croatia 3-1 in the tournament opener. Neymar failed to score against Mexico Tuesday thanks to amazing goalkeeping Guillermo Ochoa. But the pressure that some players thrive on seems to weigh others ...
For The US, It All Starts — And Maybe Ends — With Ghana Gotta beat Ghana. So it was in 2006 for the US soccer team when the Black Stars put them out of the World Cup in their group finale in Germany. So it was in 2010 when Africa’s Team booted the Americans in overtime in the second round in South Africa. And so it will be on Monday night in Natal, Brazil, where the long-shot Yanks stick their toes into the Group of Death. Jurgen Klinsmann, their German expatriate coach who has been catching *** from patriots for saying no more than what global oddsmakers have — that his squad has no chance to win the tournament — told fans in Times Square last month that the opener essentially would be a knockout match. History says that’s so. Since their modern era began two dozen years ago, whenever the Yanks have lost their first outing they’ve gone three-and-out. In 1990, their amateurs absorbed a harsh 5-1 tutorial from the Czechs in Florence. In 1998, with Klinsmann doing the honors, the Germans blan ...
U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has now witnessed four of his nation's World Cup points. Present for the USA's 1-1 draw with England in South Africa in 2010, Biden took in the USA's riveting 2-1 win over Ghana in Natal Monday night and visited the Americans in the locker room after the match. WATCH:…
Substitute John Brooks' late header helped the United States exact World Cup revenge on Ghana in an entertaining Group G match. The African side were looking to complete a hat-trick of World Cup wins over the Stars and Stripes, having beaten them 2-1 in both Germany and South Africa. It had looked set to end in a draw after Clint Dempsey's early strike was cancelled out by Andre Ayew, only for half-time replacement Brooks to head home in the 86th minute to secure Jurgen Klinsmann's side a 2-1 win in Natal. A month's worth of rain had fallen in the city in the days leading up to the Group G encounter but the match went ahead at Estadio das Dunas, which witnessed the opening goal after just 29 seconds as Seattle Sounders midfielder Dempsey showed neat footwork before slotting home. Jozy Altidore left the field on a stretcher with a hamstring strain after wasting a great chance to double the USA's advantage, before they then lost Matt Besler to a hamstring complaint. Those changes looked to disrupt the Stars ...
OBAMA BOYZ BROOKS NO NONSENSE FROM Black Stars; RONALDO'S PORTUGAL POUNDED AND Super Eagles HELD! A late John Brooks goal gave the United States a somewhat undeserved 2-1 win over a determined youthful Ghana. The Africans conceded the quickest goal of this Brazil World Cup with Clint Dempsey giving Jurgen Klinsmann's side the lead after 35 seconds. Andre Ayew scored a cracking equaliser eight from time after being set up by an audacious captain Asamoah Gyan back heel. But a point which would have been richly merited for James Kwesi Appiah could not be earned as Brooks stroke to break the Black Stars hearts and earn President Barack Obama's boys revenge over Ghana who eliminated the Americans four years ago in South Africa. Earlier, German mercilessly massacred 10-man Portugal 4-0 to take stranglehold of a tough Group G. Thomas Muller got the first hat-trick of this exciting World Cup while Ronaldo was reduced to a pale shadow of his superstar self. Mats Hummels thumped home a header against hapless Portu ...
World Cup Commentary… After a day-long gig filling in on the desk at a French television service called AITV (my voice rings ‘round Africa), I hit a bar and watched the first half of Germany-Portugal. That was enough. Portugal almost out embarrassed its Iberian neighbor Spain. So far, among those countries considered to be contenders, Germany and Holland have looked best, prompting many to predict that one of them will ultimately prevail. So why am I not jumping on the Northern Euro bandwagon? In the entire history of the World Cup, dating back to 1930, with a hiatus in the 1940s due to World War II, no European team has ever won in the Americas. Only once, Brazil in Sweden in 1958, has a team from the Americas taken the Cup in Europe. When in Asia (Japan/South Korea), Brazil won. When in South Africa, Spain won. Yesterday the San Antonio Spurs won basketball’s NBA title. Having a better record than the Miami Heat over the regular season, they were given the right to play ONE extra game at home duri ...

4 years ago I was fortunate enough to cheer on Team USA in the World Cup in South Africa.
some things that will happen during World Cup. 1. “Cristiano Ronaldo will not score” Portuguese captain has been instrumental on Real Madrid double (Copa del Rey and Champions League), breaking goals record. He is a La Liga top goal scorer with 31 goals, Champions League top scorer with 17 goals (record) and Europe top goal scorer equal with Suarez (but he has played less games than Suarez). But he has been told that will not score! 2. “Brazil will exit in semi finals” Brazil are favorite to win a record title of 6th World cup, they’re the hosting nation and they’re expected to do better than they did in 2006 in Germany and 2010 in South Africa. The have the strongest squad made of top players who play in toughest competition/leagues. But they’ve told that they will never reach semi-finals! 3. “No African team will go to the next round” African team have not been doing well in World Cups, but they always advance to last 16 to last 8. The African team which always do well is Ghana and the ...
As the United States prepares for World Cup play, Sporting KC midfielder Benny Feilhaber recalls the USMNT's run in the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa
A very early good morning to everyone, and it's World Cup Day Five as Germany and Portugal clash for Group G supremacy at Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador. Here is the team news: GERMANY: Neuer; Boateng, Hummels, Mertesacker, Howedes; Lahm, Gotze, Kroos; Muller, Khedira, Ozil. PORTUGAL: Patricio; Pereira, Alves, Pepe, Coentrao; Miguel, Moutinho, Meireles; Nani, Almelda, Ronaldo. Two European heavyweights clash, with a strong German squad looking to continue where they left off in South Africa four years ago in World Cup action, while Portugal will be reliant on the Ballon D'Or winning-talisman Cristiano Ronaldo to give them a first up win. Both nations clashed in the Group stages of Euro 2012 where Germany were victorious, and have won their last seven encounters, while there will be massive support for Portugal, who go into this match as underdogs.
Match Preview: Ghana targets hat-trick against USA Ghana’s Black Stars will be hoping to continue their dominance over the United States at the World Cup as both teams take the centre stage for the second Group G game Monday night at the Estadio das Dunas Natal. Ghana emerged victors in their past two meetings against the Americans as they sent the United States out of the last two World Cups in Germnay and South Africa. However, Jurgen Klismann and his squad are confident they can halt the dominance of the Ghanaians with a vital win in tonight’s meeting. U.S. optimism has indeed been bolstered by victories over Azerbaijan, Turkey and Nigeria in the recent final set of test matches before heading to Brazil. Klinsmann served some hint at Sunday’s pre-match conference about Kyle Beckerman, who started against the Super Eagles and very well could reprise his role on Monday. That would give the U.S. extra cover against Ghana’s fearsome counterattack and offer more freedom to Bradley and Jermaine Jones ...
VEEP UPBEAT ABOUT GHANA”S CHANCES The Vice President Kwesi Bekoe Amissah Arthur believes Ghana would beat the USA for the third time in the worlds’ most prestigious soccer tournament. The Vice-President who is in currently in Brazil over the weekend delivered a special message from His Excellency President John Dramani Mahama to the Black Stars. He called on the players to see the World Cup tournament as a duty to themselves and the country because of the opportunity that they have on the world stage, adding that some may not have that opportunity to play again at the world cup, urging them to put behind 2010 in South Africa but rather use it as a guide and from because they represent the unity of Ghana. Vice President Kwesi Amissah Arthur said Ghana is in need of new victories, so it is time as a country we bring back the glory that our forefathers fought for us some years ago, so that our children and the future generation would forever remember us for that feat. He also called on Ghanaians to stay ...

Not the World Cup- Wales v South Africa rugby "Best banner at the World Cup so far
Big match feature: Iran v Nigeria Nigeria will go into their first group game against Iran looking to bury the ghosts of World Cup past by winning their first game at the football showpiece event for the first time since France1998 . Coach Stephen Keshi, in particular will look to make history as the first Nigerian to captain and coach a Nigerian team to the World Cup Finals by nicking a first win in six attempts as the Super Eagles look to lay a marker in Group F of the 2014 Fifa World Cup. Iran will be lead by Portuguese coach Carlos Queiroz, who is a proven tactician and has molded a strong defensive unit with Team Melli. The Iranian team have been set up to be difficult to beat and usually use the counter-attacking style of play to devastating effect. The 61-year-old Portuguese coach, who has had stints in England, Spain, the United States, Japan and South Africa, will be leading Iran into their first World Cup since 2006 and will look to build on their recent progress with a strong showing against Ni ...

Saturday Sport Review 14 June - Marco Jacobs If you are a Springbok rugby supporter there can be no greater sight than a team that is playing with power and a fair amount of flair. For sixty minutes Wales had no answer or a way to counter the Bok juggernaut. There are still a lot for the Springboks to work on but I am sure that they know what their deficiencies are and how to rectify it. The Fifa World Cup kicked off on Thursday and has already produced some fantastic moments for the football lover. The match of the tournament so far was between defending champions Spain and the Netherlands.The Dutch totally annihilated the Spanish with an emphatic 5 - 1 win. Robin Van Persie scoring the goal of the tournament so far. A big mention must go to Pietie Coetsee who retired after the South African women's hockey team played their final match against Korea in the hockey world cup. What a wonderful ambassador she was for her sport and South Africa as a whole! Here is a more in depth look at what h ...
When a country makes it to the final of one World Cup, they are generally among the favourites to go all the way at the next tournament four years later. And when said team qualifies for that next World Cup by recording nine wins and one draw in the qualification campaign, there is usually no further discussion over whether they are among the teams to beat. Yet things are slightly different with Netherlands. The Dutch hugely disappointed at Euro 2012 – where they crashed out at the group stages after defeats against Germany, Portugal and Denmark – and have since not only replaced head coach Bert van Marwijk with Louis Van Gaal, but have completely overhauled their squad as well. From the team that reached the final in South Africa, only seven players have made the cut again for this summer’s tournament, with just four of them expected to make Holland’s starting XI in Brazil – Nigel de Jong, Robin Van Persie, Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben. It’s therefore fair to say Netherlands are no longer ...
☆England☆ vs ☆Italy☆ Perennial underachievers England come into this World Cup on the back of unimpressive results in their friendly games. Since their qualifying campaign coming to a close, England have played 6 friendlies, beating Denmark and Peru, drawing with Ecuador and Honduras and losing to Chile and Germany. They would need to do a lot better if they were to get anything out of today's game against an Italian side that boast a wealth of experience. Experience aside, though, Italy have not been too hot themselves either. In their last 7 international games, competitive and non-competitive, Italy have won none. For their high standards, that is shocking. Italy lost to Spain, and drew with Denmark, Armenia, Germany, Nigeria, Ireland and Luxembourg. In the last World Cup in South Africa, Italy endured a disappointing campaign, failing to win any of their group games and bowed out prematurely, to the dismay of football enthusiasts worldwide. In terms of teams, England should line up in a format ...
Ochoa heroics, Dutch delight, Chile celebrate THE DAY REPLAYED – There are few better things in life than making up for past disappointments, something Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, the Netherlands and Chile can all relate to after Friday’s three matches at the 2014 Fifa World Cup Brazil™. In all three cases the players in question left the pitch with broad smiles on their faces, content at having set the record straight. In Memo Ochoa’s case that meant making a long-awaited Fifa World Cup debut, having earned selection for the previous two world finals without seeing any action at either of them. For the Dutch came the satisfaction of avenging their South Africa 2010 Final loss to Spain in the best possible fashion, while two of Chile’s best-known stars experienced the joy of finally getting in among the goals at world football’s biggest competition.

Revenge, they say, is a dish best served cold. It did not feel cold in the humidity of a Salvador evening but four years after losing the World Cup Final to Spain, the Netherlands exacted revenge in quite stunning fashion here last night. Outplayed for the first 44 minutes and trailing to a Xabi Alonso penalty, they came back to inflict a 5-1 hammering on the holders in which both Robin Van Persie and Arjen Robben struck twice. Spain came back from an opening defeat by Switzerland in South Africa but it is hard to see how they can retain their title after a demoralising setback like this. They had not conceded five goals in an international since 1963 and though this World Cup is still very much in its infancy, it will take a special team to bounce back after being stunned by Louis Van Gaal’s team in this Group B fixture. Spain just could not live with the pace and quality of the Dutch attack who rounded off the rout with a quite brilliant individual goal from Robben who raced away from Sergio Ramos and ...

Rizzoli These 2 teams r undoubtably de best teams in the grp and probably in the tournament. Teams dat destroy their opponents and score as many goals as dey please face each other. Netherlands may have been underestimated by the bookmakers for the Group B rematch of the last World Cup Final against Spain. Although the Dutch were unable to break down the Spanish defence in South Africa in the 2010 showdown, won by Andres Iniesta’s extra-time strike, they are fancied to have better luck this time and this could even be the first upset of the tournament. Spain are, of course, seeking a remarkable fourth consecutive major competition victory after two European Championship triumphs and one World Cup.

Hi Everyone, Come along and watch The FIFA World Cup 2014, the world' biggest sporting spectacle kicks off today and ends on July 13, when the finals is held at iconic Maracana Stadium in Rio De Jeneiro, Brazil. Let's watch the whole world unite and play! Who will win Fifa World Cup? Can you predict the winner? Can you guess? I choose Brazil. Since 1930 till 2010, Brazil had won 5 times the prestigious Cup - 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 & 2002. It had never won the cup in its own country. NOW, Brazil is the host for Fifa World Cup. With the World Cup being held in Brazil, the pressure will be too much for Luiz Felipe Scolari's men. The other competitors are Argentina, England, Italy, Germany, Uruguay, France and Spain. The last Fifa World Cup was won by Spain which was held in South Africa. Brazil has good squad. Coach: Luiz Felipe Scolari. Their Goalkeepers are Julio Cesar, Jefferson and Victor. Defenders: Dante, David Luiz, Henrique, Thiago Silva, Daniel Alves,Maicon, Marcelo and Maxwell. Midfielders: Fe ...

They automatically qualified into World Cup as hosts, but their breathtaking performances in the Confederations Cup, which saw them comfortably beaten the likes of Italy, Uruguay and World Champions Spain understandably reinstate them into heavy favorite this time around. But I don't think it will be easy for them. Brazil WC preparation saw them chosen and beaten minnows as such South Africa and Panama, which become their traditional selection before the tournament every four years. Brazil always being a Brazil, nothing much you can predict from them, sometimes they can play beautifully but once in a while they will fail too. The players in the squad honestly aren't really world beaters if you look at the campaigns for respective clubs. Neyma .. ...
NIGERIA WORLD CUP JOURNEY SO FAR 1994 World Cup : Nigeria finally reached the World Cup for the first time in 1994. They were managed by Clemens Westerhof. Nigeria topped its group which included Argentina, Bulgaria, and Greece. In its first game Nigeria defeated Bulgaria 3–0, lost to Argentina 1–2, and qualified for the second round after a 2–0 victory over Greece. In the second round Nigeria played Italy and took the lead with a goal from Amunike at 25 min. Nigeria were within two minutes of qualifying for the Quarterfinals of the 1994 World Cup in the game against Italy but Roberto Baggio scored to take the game to extra time. He also scored the eventual winning goal. The game ended 2–1 in favour of the Italians. 1998 World Cup : In 1998 Nigeria returned to the World Cup alongside Cameroon, Morocco, Tunisia, and South Africa. Optimism was high due to its manager Bora Milutinović and the return of most 1994 squad members. In the final tournament Nigeria were drawn into group D with Spain, Bulga ...
People keep asking me and there was a debate that Brazil can be defeated by Katlehong born players that play at Somhlolo tournaments. They believe that if we form a starting X1 of the likes of Shakes, Mboro, Skhwama etc, we'll beat Brazil because of the style of play of kasie flavour football with lots of entertainment, Brazil defeated Bafana 5-0 with our own medicine of flavour footbal produced by Neymar and Oscar that night, the style that won South Africa an Afcon in 1996 and qualified for their 1st World Cup appearance in France 1998, Olympic games 1999 and Japan 2002 with the players such as Doctor Khumalo, Jabu Pule, Steve Lekoelea to name a few. Thereafter it all gone wrong, we keep failing everything because we wanna play the European style by the book. That kasie flavour football is played mostly in Katlehong now. I personally against the fact that those guys from Somhlolo can match Brazil though they are good, there are lots of factors that can prevent them to win. We need a coach that can bring ...

HM Pitje Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium located in Mamelodi, a suburb of the City of Tshwane, South Africa. It was intended to be used mostly for football matches and to be utilized as a training field for teams participating in the 2010 Fifa World Cup where by it was in the process of being renovated in 2009, but missed major deadlines in being brought up to FIFA standards. In the past, it was the part-time home stadium of the Mamelodi Sundowns , who now play at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium . The stadium was named after Hezekiel Mothibe Pitje, the first mayor of Mamelodi.

Nothing best describes the hallucinatory delusions of Gov. Kwankwaso of GEJ wanting him dead than this: "“I thought I was getting away from politics for a while. But I now realise that the vuvuzela is to these World Cup blogs what Julius Malema is to my politics columns: a noisy, but sadly unavoidable irritant. With both Malema and the vuvuzela, their importance is far overstated. Malema: South Africa's Robert Mugabe? I think not. The vuvuzela: an archetypal symbol of 'African culture?' For African civilisation's sake, I seriously hope not. Both are getting far too much airtime than they deserve. Both have thrust themselves on to the world stage through a combination of hot air and raucous bluster. Both amuse and enervate in roughly equal measure. And both are equally harmless in and of themselves — though in Malema's case, it is the political tendency that he represents, and the right-wing interests that lie behind his diatribes that is dangerous.

Steven Smith eyes limited-overs progress Over the past year, Steven Smith has grown to become an integral member of the Australia Test side, having played crucial roles in both the home Ashes and the series victory in South Africa. His limited-overs career with Australia hasn't quite flourished though, having last held down a regular spot nearly three years ago. It is something he wants to change, especially with the World Cup at home next year. "I was pretty happy with my performances in the Ryobi and the T20 last year. It is my ambition to play all three forms for Australia," he said during Australia's fitness camp in Brisbane. "Hopefully I can keep improving and learning my game in the short form." He scored four half-centuries in eight innings for New South Wales in the Ryobi Cup last season, and played 10 matches for Rajasthan Royals in the recent IPL.
BRAZIL BRACES FOR ARGENTINE HOOLIGANS Anti-World Cup protests are not the only problem Brazilian security authorities will face during the soccer tournament. They are also bracing for an invasion of Argentine hooligans.The soccer fan clubs called "barras bravas" in neighboring Argentina are notoriously violent and Brazilian police are taking no chances.Brazil plans to beef up security in and outside stadiums where arch rival Argentina will play, deploy undercover cops and bring in Argentine police officers to spot troublemakers, police officials in some host cities said. More than 50 000 Argentine fans are expected to come to Brazil for the World Cup, many driving across the border in cars and buses. Although deadly incidents are rare at World Cups, Argentine barras bravas have a history of violence, from stabbing English fans in Mexico in 1986 to fighting each other during the last tournament in South Africa four years ago. Like fans from all over, many Argentines were unable to secure tickets to World C ...
Monday Motivation: From the Editor Warren Holden The march of progress Two new studios have been added to the world of South African television broadcasting this month. The first is the revamped SuperSport Studio 6 at the Sports Broadcasting giant’s Randburg headquarters and the other is the new satellite studio installed by CNBC Africa at the Johannesburg Securities Exchange (JSE) in Sandton. These are two very different facilities in terms of scale, form and purpose, yet what strikes me with both of them is their incorporation of new technology, and how this technology is both adding value to the viewers’ experience and changing the way our industry operates. The SuperSport studio, which is to be up and running just in time for the Fifa World Cup, has added state-of-the-art augmented reality (AR) equipment. AR has been a buzzword in the industry for at least the past five years, but it is only now that the technology is being taken up to an appreciable extent in South Africa. For sport viewers, with ...
Uruguay defender Diego Lugano believes that his side are worthy candidates to win the World Cup after reaching the last four in South Africa in 2010.
Goalkeepers: Adam Kwarasey (Stromsgodset) Age 26; 21 Caps. Norwegian-born and a former Under-21 international who switched his allegiance to the land of his father in 2011, playing his second game for Ghana against Brazil at Craven Cottage. Won the Norwegian league last year and was named the best goalkeeper after having lost his place in the Ghana starting line-up to Dauda. He is expected to be the first choice in Brazil. Fatau Dauda (Orlando Pirates) Age 29; 16 caps. First choice last year for Ghana at the African Nations Cup finals but since warned he would not make the World Cup trip unless he gets more regular club action. His problem is exacerbated by a move last July to South Africa where he has played just two league games for Orlando Pirates and lost his place in the Black Stars’ line-up. There was a four year hiatus between his first cap in 2008 and his second. Stephen Adams (Aduana Stars) Age 24; 0 caps . Won a first call up to the squad in March as a crisis around the form of the Ghanaian go ...
England's World Cup injury woe No World Cup build-up would be complete without a major injury concern for England. After all, then captain Rio Ferdinand missed the 2010 tournament after suffering ligament damage to his left knee in the team's first training session in South Africa. Gary Neville missed the 2002 tournament with a metatarsal, while there were injury scares involving David Beckham (2002) and Wayne Rooney (2006). Older fans will remember Bryan Robson (above) dislocating a shoulder in a warm-up game ahead of Mexico '86. Although he travelled to the finals, he aggravated it after four minutes of the 0-0 draw with Morocco which curtailed his participation. The Three Lions haven't even reached Brazil yet, but they have already lost midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to a knee injury that has ruled him out of the Italy match. No wonder Roy Hodgson will be keeping everything crossed that everyone emerges unscathed against Honduras.
World Cup and the beautiful game By Ayo Oyoze Baje Individuals don’t win,teams do -Sam Walton The ultimate goal of every soccer-loving nation is to win the much-coveted and prestigious World Cup.For the next one month starting from June 12,2014 global attention will be riveted on Brazil,one of soccer’s iconic countries ever.There,the brightest and the best that the football world has to offer will have the veritable platform to showcase their phenomenal skills.They would exhibit such at ball juggling,deft passes,scintillating swerves,mesmerizing dribbles,defending hot shots and eventually to score the vital goals.The salutary aim of course, is to attain fame and fortune and make their countries proud. As usual,old scores will be settled on the field of play.New friendships will be forged as broken fences are mended.More money would be made for individuals, countries and FIFA,the organizing body. For instance, prior to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa,Sepp Blatter,FIFA President revealed that income ...

The view from home…what the pundits think of their country’s chances in Brazil We've spoken to dozens of pundits, former players, coaches and journalists from each of the World Cup countries to find out how they think their team will fare in Brazil. Algeria “Algeria have been strong competitors for a long time.” Claude Le Roy, vastly experienced coach of Congo. “It will be difficult for Algeria because there are two big teams in their group in Russia and Belgium, and to get past both of them would be a miracle.” Joseph-Antoine Bell, former Cameroon goalkeeper and now French radio analyst. “The team is very young and inexperienced. It will therefore have to compensate with a passion in their play.” Yazid Mansouri, former captain. “Algeria can imagine they will qualify with the group they’ve been given – but it’s a group that will be decided on very small details.” Philippe Troussier, former South Africa and Japan World Cup coach. Argentina “We are candidates for the title – a ...
Warriors-Bafana Bafana match fixed? FIFA investigator Terry Steans says Zimbabwe’s 3-nil defeat to South Africa in an international friendly played in January 2010 might have been fixed. A FIFA report into South African friendly matches played just before the 2010 World Cup is suggesting an international friendly involving Bafana Bafana and the Warriors at the Moses Mabhida stadium on 27 January 2010 may have been fixed. Steans, who was commissioned by football’s international governing body to write the 2012 report into South Africa’s friendly matches, says the Zimbabwe versus South Africa encounter took place under shady circumstances. He is quoted as saying “there is no doubt that the game was highly suspicious”. The friendly which South Africa won against Zimbabwe with three second half goals was identified in the FIFA report as likely to have been dubious. Bafana’s friendly against Zimbabwe was reportedly primarily to raise money for the then cash strapped national association. Steans’ ...
World Cup: Demichelis makes Argentina's squad Central defender Martin Demichelis was named on Monday in Argentina's 23-man World Cup squad while regular reserve midfielder Ever Banega was left out. Coach Alejandro Sabella recalled Demichelis to his provisional squad last month after his title-winning season with English Premier League side Manchester City following more than two years out of the Argentina reckoning. The defender who made way for Demichelis is another veteran of the 2010 finals in South Africa, Nicolas Otamendi, who was on loan at Brazil's Atletico Mineiro and had also only recently been recalled by Sabella. Benfica winger Enzo Perez also found a place in the squad for the Brazil finals starting on June 12 but Banega, who joined Newell's Old Boys from Valencia this season, missed the cut after illness and loss of form. Argentina, captained by Lionel Messi, will be looking to win their third world crown. They face Bosnia, Iran and Nigeria in Group F. SQUAD: Goalkeepers: Sergio Romero (Sampd ...
World Cup 2014: Miroslav Klose confirmed in Germany squad Record-chasing Miroslav Klose will go to his fourth World Cup after being named in Germany's final 23-man squad. The 35-year-old striker needs two more goals to beat the record total of 15 held by Brazilian Ronaldo. Hoffenheim forward Kevin Volland was cut from the provisional squad, meaning Arsenal's Lukas Podolski is their only other option as a striker. Klose scored five times in the 2002 and 2006 World Cup Finals and four in the 2010 tournament in South Africa. The Lazio striker shares second place in the list of all-time World Cup Finals scorers with compatriot Gerd Muller. The pair are also joint top scorers for Germany with 68 goals each. Klose has been restricted to 22 appearances for Lazio this season but has scored seven times in Serie A and coach Joachim Low expects him to make an impact in Brazil.

Del Bosque shows his hand Vicente Del Bosque finally placed his cards on the table on Saturday and named the 23-man Spain squad for this month's World Cup. The responsibility of defending the title won in South Africa meant there was much interest in the announcement but, in the end, there were few surprises. With so much talent at his disposal, the doubts revolved around who would be left out. Whoever Del Bosque chose he would be naming a strong squad and he has done just that -- cast your eye over the employers of Spain's 23 and you'll find a who's who of Europe's top clubs. Of the seven players not chosen in this squad who picked up winners' medals four years ago, only Jesus Navas and Fernando Llorente could realistically have been said to be in with a shout this time. Navas' absence is due to an ankle injury and will deprive Spain of the wing wizardry of a player who contributed greatly to the winning goal against Netherlands in the 2010 final with a fine run from a deep position. Juan Mata and Santi ...
Four years after their 2010 humiliation in South Africa, Italy are seeking to banish that nightmare and have a successful World Cup in Brazil.
The schedule of play for the bwin World Cup of Darts has been confirmed ahead of the fourth staging of the event next week. An expanded World Cup of Darts will this year see 32 nations, each represented by two players, competing for the title and a £200,000 prize fund at the Sporthalle Hamburg from June 6-8. The knockout event will kick off on Friday June 6, with the first round being held across two sessions as the 16 seeded nations face the 16 unseeded countries. Host nation German will take on South Africa in one of the eight fixtures to be played in Friday's afternoon session, while last year's semi-finalists Finland will kick off the tournament against Poland and 2010 semi-finalists Spain face New Zealand. The top eight seeds will enter the first round on Friday night, with reigning champions England beginning their bid for a third successive title as they meet Thailand. Netherlands, who won the 2010 event, will play Italy in the first round, while last year's beaten finalists Belgium take on debuta ...
The Woods World Cup Countdown 12th : France Les Bleus have a chequered history at World Cup Finals. They were the first defending champions to exit at the group stage in the next tournament and last time out in South Africa, the team made the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Players sent home, internal bickering and awful performances on the pitch. In 2006, Zinedine Zidane famously brought down the curtain on his career with a red card in the final in Germany. This year, under Didier Deschamps however, France have looked considerably better, though they did need an epic comeback win in the second leg of their qualification playoff against Ukraine to reach Brazil. Champions on home soil in '98, the French have reached at least the semi-finals on five occasions and with the experience they have in their ranks, I think they're a safe bet to make it through a relatively worry-free group, most likely in top spot. If everything plays out as I expect though, I can see France losing in an upset in the Round o ...
World Cup preview – Nigeria World Soccer looks at the chances of current African champions, Nigeria, at this year's World Cup Finals. Introduction The “Super Eagles” arrive in Brazil as reigning African champions but arguably at their most unconvincing in decades with an enigmatic aura about them. Nigeria’s triumph in South Africa last year was as unexpected as it was unconvincing. They stuttered through the opening round but then upset favourites Ivory Coast in the quarter-finals and went on to beat Mali and Burkina Faso to take the title. But their subsequent performance at the Confederations Cup in Brazil in mid-year proved disappointing and their World Cup qualification path was the easiest of the five African sides. It leaves a scepticism about their potential, tempered by a favourable draw in a group with Argentina, the favourites to take top place. However, Nigeria believe they can easily take second spot ahead of Bosnia-Herzegovina and Iran. They could even have progress sewn up after thei ...

Q9. Which stadium in South Africa was the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final played at?
South Africa goes into recession Building new stadia for the World Cup has protected the construction industry The South African economy has gone into recession for the first time since 1992, following a sharp slowdown in the manufacturing and mining sectors. Africa's biggest economy contracted at an annualised rate of 6.4% between January and March, compared with the same period a year earlier. It was the biggest decline since 1984 and followed an annualised 1.8% fall in the previous three months. The construction sector, however, was boosted by the upcoming World Cup. South Africa is benefiting from a huge programme of government investment ahead of the football tournament in 2010. Rate cut expected A recession is generally defined as being two quarters of negative growth. It is definitely going to make things tougher Johan Rossouw, Vector Securities and Derivatives "It's far worse than we expected," said Elna Moolman, economist at Barnard Jacobs Mellet.

Did you know that the Brazilian government is just knocking down areas of favela (shanty town) around Rio and Sao Paolo, to prepare the cities for the World Cup Finals ? It's like South Africa all over again, but worse. On the BBC documentary I'm watching there's been no mention of resettlement, even in godforsaken sink estates out of town, as in South Africa. The price of football ? Oh yeah, the residents were first subjected to waves of 'Pacification' from the local police force, who interpreted any dissent as collaboration with the drug gangs.

FC Barcelona are looking for a second goalkeeper behind Marc Andre Ter Stegen. Talks are underway with Willy Caballero, but now it is also very clear that Andoni Zubizarreta also have met and talked with Claudio Bravo, who is goalkeeper at Real Sociedad. Attending to the meeting was also the goalkeeper's agent Cristian Ogalde. It was what is called conversation on a positive note. Claudio Bravo is 31 year old and national team goalkeeper for Chile, such as playing the World Cup in South Africa. He came to Real Sociedad in 2006 and has a contract until 2017. However, the goalkeeper is of course ready to move to FC Barcelona and Zubizarreta also believes that Claudio Bravo's buyout clause of 30 million euros can be lowered a lot. Claudio Bravo reported today as FC Barcelona new first choice as second goalkeeper

Injuries,threaten Germany Already, Joachim Loew has a host of issues to sort if Germany is to legitimately challenge for this summer's World Cup. What's German for "angst?" Joking aside, it's hard to contemplate any other footballing nation being this good at fearing the worst ahead of every single World Cup. In 2006, injury doubts about Philipp Lahm (elbow) and Michael Ballack (calf) coincided with wide-scale panic about the defence. Writing as a columnist for Bild, Paul Breitner even advised national manager Jürgen Klinsmann to re-instate a sweeper system with Jens Nowotny as the “libero” at the back. Four years later, Ballack's absence in South Africa -- Kevin-Prince Boateng had fouled him badly in the FA Cup final between Chelsea and Portsmouth in May 2010 -- gave rise to plenty of apocalyptic thoughts. The upshot: Germany made it to third place in both tournaments. This time around, no-one has yet dared to write about the doomsday scenario: a group stage exit. But less than a month ahead of the ...

World Cup Betting Profile: Netherlands With the Oranje looking to repeat their heroics of four years ago, our tipster looks at their squad and chances of World Cup glory where the bookmakers price them at arpimd 25/1 The Netherlands go into the World Cup with high levels of expectation and pressure on their shoulders after finishing runners up in South Africa four years ago. With 28 points secured from a possible 30 in the qualifying group stages, it may be somewhat of a surprise they are priced at 25/1 (26.00) to win the competition in Brazil this summer. Louis Van Gaal's side were fantastic in the qualifying stages for this competition over the last two years, overcoming a tricky group to qualify with ease. The Oranje has to negotiate Romania, Hungary and Turkey as well as Estonia and Andorra to progress in the competition. The manor in which the Dutch carried out their business was superb. In the 10 qualifying matches, 34 goals were scored, with only five conceded. The only time they failed to win was ...

ONLY WITH THE Holy Spirit “My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.” Psalm 84:2 A few months ago a North Korean man successfully waded across the Tumen River into China looking for food, money and work in order to return later to his home country with help for his family. He was befriended by Korean-Chinese Christians (not an uncommon scenario among refugees there). As he sat in Christian meetings, an older woman said to him, “Receive the Holy Spirit or you can’t go back into North Korea; it’s too dangerous!” After many discussions with believers, he confessed Jesus as Lord of his life and received the Holy Spirit. He packed Bibles along with his food cargo and crossed the river back to North Korea. Though it was a full moon night, there were no guards since everyone was watching North Korea play football (soccer) against Brazil in the World Cup games in South Africa. As soon as he arrived home, he began talking about his new re ...
Ghana seeks to make World Cup history for Africa 2014-04-11 | Ghana came awfully close to being the first African team to reach the World Cup semifinals, its progress halted by a handball from Uruguay striker Luis Suarez and Asamoah Gyan's miss from the resulting penalty. Gyan is captain this time and Ghana still has the core of the side that eventually lost in a shootout at the 2010 tournament. They've set their sights on going a step further in Brazil. Midfielders Michael Essien and Kevin-Prince Boateng, who both took extended breaks from international duty after 2010, have returned to bring the squad back to full strength. The Ghana team left South Africa as the toast of the continent four years ago, but has struggled to live up to that promise between the World Cups, losing to Zambia and Burkina Faso in the semifinals of the 2012 and 2013 African Cup tournaments. All that casts doubt on whether Ghana is Africa's best contender in Brazil, particularly with top-ranked African team Ivory Coast and conti ...
An interview with Canadian XC champion Emily Batty about the start to the 2014 World Cup season in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa
Photo by Photosport  A traditional sporting rivalry will add a new football chapter when the All Whites clash with South Africa at Mt Smart Stadium on Friday 30 May. After meeting the Socceroos in Sydney on May 26, Bafana Bafana will make the trip across the Tasman to meet the All Whites four days later. The May match-up follows closely on the heels of the All Whites’ trip to Japan in March which saw a young side - including two debutants in Ryan Thomas and Tyler Boyd - score twice in an improved second half showing in a 4-2 defeat in Tokyo. New Zealand Football CEO Andy Martin said the Japan encounter highlighted the way forward for a side building towards the qualification process for the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia. “Our performance in Japan across the 90 minutes against a side heading to the World Cup showed we have a young team full of great potential,” Martin said. “Given the nature of our situation with players now based all over the globe, it’s imperative for our team and players that ...
UK 'honeymoon murder' suspect appears in South African court ReutersBy Wendell Roelf | Reuters – 7 hours ago Share2 Print By Wendell Roelf Cape Town (Reuters) - British businessman Shrien Dewani, who is accused of arranging for his bride to be murdered during their 2010 honeymoon in Cape Town, appeared briefly in a South African court on Tuesday after losing a three-year battle against extradition. Dewani has been treated for post-traumatic stress and depression since the killing of his Swedish wife, Anni, but Pretoria has not let up in its fight to bring him to trial, mindful of the damage to crime-ridden South Africa's reputation after its successful hosting of the 2010 Soccer World Cup. The 34-year-old arrived at Cape Town airport from Britain early in the morning but was whisked away out of sight of a throng of waiting reporters and taken to the Cape High Court, which was cordoned off with yellow police ticker tape. Top Cape Town judge, John Hlophe, postponed the case to May 12 and ruled that Dewani ...

England defeat by Netherlands raises serious questions England's shambolic performance against Netherlands at the end of a horrible winter raises serious questions about the state of the team and where they go from here. But before I analyse their latest low, I must pay tribute to the Dutch, who thoroughly deserved their 45-run victory. Peter Borren's team should have beaten South Africa, and they did the basics right against England, held everything together and were comfortably the better side. To defend a below-par total of 133-5 and win by such a resounding margin was a superb effort. England were simply dreadful, and it was galling to hear coach Ashley Giles and captain Stuart Broad putting the display down to complacency.

Netherlands beating England in Fifa World Cup, understandable. But in cricket. This is ridiculous. The English cricket team are to England what Bafana Bafana are to South Africa. A bunch of losers.
Prediction of my bookie... T20 World Cup Final will be played between South Africa and West Indies ... :)
I need tickets for the South Africa vs India semifinal. Since its the Proteas, my favorite team since 1999, I am willing to break my word and buy tickets. 1 k max and I prefer Grand Stand. Other tickets will work too, I believe I know enough volunteers to get me into Grand Stand with other tickets, just like the Quarter Final of the 2011 World Cup. So if anyone can provide me tickets, that person will get a treat at Nando's. If that person goes to the stadium with me, he/she will be treated in the stadium as well :) Newaz Masud Andy and Emranul Alam please check this :P Get me a ticket somehow.
OH, MIKEL! The day Jose Mourinho signed Matic, I lamented here that our own Mikel Obi's Chelsea days were over. But Chelsea fans, ever interested in mouthy exchanges, told me to mind my business. I wondered what could qualify better as my business when Nigeria's 2014 World Cup participation was in jeopardy! To win the Nations Cup in South Africa, Stephen Keshi anchored an average squad on Mikel and the ex-Chelsea regular showed why he was the main stay in Chelsea's back-to-back European triumphs. But Mourinho, just because Man City has Yaya Toure, decided he needed his own Yaya to stand any chance of winning the EPL. So, the Portuguese wittingly concluded to end the career of Mikel, who was in same playing mold with Yaya before the same Mourinho turned him into a robotic stationery, with instructions to sit deep, break up play, guide it with strength, pass to the nearest man but never near the centre line! Well, I pray Chelsea goes trophy-less this season so that Mourinho will come to grips that Mikel was ...
This is truth: Did u guys remember India lost to South Africa and New Zealand without even a single win. At that time everyone was saying Dhoni should be removed from captainship and Suresh Raina was not able to make runs as well people said Raina should be removed. Now, India is winning consecutively and is the 1st team to enter Semis. People now say that Dhoni should be the captain in 2015 World Cup as well and Suresh Raina is the backbone of Indian team..

Who is the greatest Indian captain ever: Dhoni or Ganguly? I have some stats about both their captaincy: •Ganguly bet the Aussie side which had so many great players like hayden, vaugh, mcgrath, warne, brett lee, gilly, ponting,etc 1-1 in australia whereas Dhoni got whitewashed 4-0 to a much depleted Aussie team. •When ganguly was captain all teams including Zimbabwe & NZ were strong... now only England & South Africa are strong... Also 80 % of those 22 wins of Dhoni in test are played at home. whereas ganguly played more than 60% of his matches overseas. •Captaincy record outside India: Ganguly:11 wins in 28 matches & batting average 66.66 Dhoni:5 wins in 18 matches & batting average 31.85 •I repeat again,ganguly had double the batting average than Dhoni in overseas test matches & ganguly was no different, he too batted at no.5 or no.6 only. •Dhoni won India the first T20 World Cup, but later on he couldn't even take India to semis in the next 3 World Cups followed by that.And 8-0 whitewashes t ...

South Africa take on Sri Lanka today T20 Cricket World Cup all the best to the proteas.
Umm “Who was the 'Head Boy' at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa?
had Nepal been able to take the Bangladesh's chase to the 19th over only, we could have qualified for the super stage. its not the first time Nepal has been ruled out for the net run rate. the U-19 world cup team was also out for the same reason after defeating giant like South Africa, and that was in Bangladesh too. what a coincidence!!!?

Netherlands vs. Spain Round: Final Venue & Date: Soccer City, Johannesburg, South Africa, 11th July, 2010 After mesmerizing spectators with a month-long brilliant and tactical display of football, two teams entered the Final of 2010 World Cup. One thing was sure – world football was going to see a new champion. Netherlands was in the final for the third time and after a gap of 32 years. Spain, after being crowned the Champions of Europe in 2008, was attempting a rare double in their maiden World Cup Final appearance. Spain were favorites after their superlative display of passing football in the semis where they virtually made the mighty Germans look pedestrian. But the Dutch started the game with aggression, actually a lot of it. Dutch manager Bert van Marwijk had realized that the Orange would not stand a chance of winning the game if they allowed Spain to dictate the game with their impeccable passing rhythm. So from the very onset of the match, the Dutch were going hard at Spanish players. Sometimes ...
Messi: "You need the luck of the champions in order to win the World Cup, just like Spain had in South Africa"
Ghana's government has approved a World Cup budget of $9.6m, about half the amount they spent for the 2010 finals in South Africa.
Michael Jackson’s close South African friends have revealed that the king of pop loved the country so much that he planned to retire here and wanted to help pen the music for the 2010 World Cup song. Speaking from his home in New York yesterday,Gerry Inzerello,Sol Kerzner’s right-hand man,spoke of the “great sadness” felt by himself and his wife Prudence Solomon,the former Miss South Africa and SABC presenter. Jackson was the best man at their Cape Town wedding. According to media reports at the time,Inzerello said: "Ask Michael which is his favourite country,he’ll undoubtedly say South Africa.This place inspires him." Inzerello,who was in Cape Town for the opening of the One & Only hotel earlier this year,confirmed this in the telephonic interview. “South Africa was his second home.He had a special relationship with it. He loved South Africa and he loved Madiba. "Three months ago he told me when he was semi-retired and his third son,Prince Michael Jr,was a little older he planned on relocatin ...

Good morning world! Lots of news to get through before we can enjoy the weekend, beginning with a fun fact, which is that your kitchen sink, filled with salmonella and bacteria, is dirtier than your toilet. The Harlem building collapses now sadly has a death toll of 8 and possibly counting, and Rio de Janeiro has now granted its citizens 3 public holidays to ease traffic congestion during the World Cup. This will be an economic hit in the billions but is deemed necessary in the wake of the mess about to engulf the already overcrowded city. A school played Justin Beiber songs over the loudspeaker to get kids to donate $509 to helping a school in Ghana, before they would stop playing the song. It worked and the kids ended up donating over $1,000, lol. The man accused of killing another in a movie theatre cause they were texting, was also texting before shooting his victim. This is just sad. Olympian Oscar Pitorious' murder trial is under way in South Africa. President Obama may have ordered a cyberattack on ...
