This week, watch the Union, Pulisic (twice), Barnetta, Beach Soccer, CONCACAF Champions League, the FA Cup and the DFB Pokal. So many competitions, so little time. As always, we try to make these listings as accurate as possible, but matches get cancelled, broadcasters change their listings, we make mistakes, etc.
An injury this week to Tranquillo Barnetta may very well scuttle any move away from Bayer
Leverkusen for the player Â this month. Tranquillo Barnetta talks were going well Barnetta earlier
this week had been linked with a move to Newcastle, but as happened last January, the player has
sustained an injury, which could keep [.
Klopp's Main Man: Nuri Sahin Has Bossed The Midfield This Season.
Jurgen Klopp's Borussia Dortmund side have looked unstoppable lately, and they had the chance
this Sunday to extend their lead at the top of the Bundesliga table to ten points. Meanwhile, their
main title rivals Bayer Leverkusen, will have been hoping to keep pace and take advantage of any
Barnetta and Leverkusen Condemned Dortmund To Defeat This Weekend.
Sunday's Bundesliga matches saw Mainz host a Sami Khedira-less Stuttgart, and Bayer Leverkusen
travel to Borussia Dortmund.
Mainz, rather shockingly, dismissed Stuttgart by a scoreline of two goals to nil, which will not
come as a welcome sign to the Stuttgart faithful who have failed to reinforce after losing both
Aliaksandr Hleb and Sami Khedira over the summer.
Switzerland came to the game with 2 changes, Frei & Behrami start the game. Both Swiss stars
have been injured and missed the clash against Spain. Referee mark instantly Suazo after 1 minute,
correct? Maybe if it would have been later in the game. Now he has to mark for every similar
incident. In the 7th minute he wrongfully gave the Swiss' a freekick after Medel slipped and solved
the situation, but the ref saw a foul.
England had to come from two goals down after goalkeeper Joe Hart was badly caught out by two
free-kicks from Tranquillo Barnetta just after half an hour.
Frank Lampard reduced the deficit with a penalty before halftime Ashley Young scored the equaliser
after the half time break.
Potential Arsenal target Tranquillo Barnetta is strongly being linked with the Gunners' after
asking to leave Bayer Leverkusen. The 24-year-old versatile winger, who has made 27 appearances for
Switzerland, scoring 6 times - has previously been touted to join Arsenal with the former St.
Gallen star's drawing comparisons to Freddie Ljungberg.
Czech Republic The Czechs topped their group in the qualifiers losing just once and leaving
tournament favourites Germany clinging on in 2nd (how's that work out?). With Cech between the
sticks, it's no surprise they go into the competition with one of the stingiest goals against
figures. I can't see them conceding much in the group [.
Ancora un arbitro protagonista in negativo, in questa edizione sudafricana dei Mondiali di
Calcio. Un fatto che si sta ripetendo con troppa frequenza e che non ci piace assolutamente.
Si tratta del fischietto dell'Arabia Saudita, Al Ghamdi che, nel
delicato e importante match tra Cile e Svizzera (in palio il
vertice del Girone H che comprende anche i campioni d'europa della
Spagna), rovina sostanzialmente la gara sventolando ingiustamente il rosso in
faccia a Behrami al 30â€² del primo tempo e costringendo gli elvetici a giocare in
dieci per il resto dell'incontro.
I campioni d'Europa della Spagna, giunti al
Mondiale del Sudafrica con un ruolino di marcia impressionante
nelle qualificazioni (10 vittorie in altrettante partite), un gioco convincente e
una squadra giovane, solida, tecnica e tatticamente perfetta, esordiscono nel peggiore dei
"E' finita la ricreazione, ora bisogna ripartire". CosÃ¬ si era espresso il ct azzurro Marcello
Lippi nei giorni che hanno preceduto il test amichevole disputato ieri sera contro la Svizzera a
Basilea e, soprattutto, a chiusura di un periodo davvero magro per i colori della nostra nazionale,
con le due figuracce rimediate nella Confederation Cup (contro Egitto e Brasile, ndr).
The World Cup has been starved for goals. With the last two teams set to kick off, can Spain --
touted by many as favorites to hoist the Cup -- reverse this trend when they take on Switzerland
(ESPN, ESPN3, 10:00am)?
World Cup success has eluded La Furia Roja, and today will be their first test of how they live
up to the hype.
With an enviable cast of characters that ply their trade throughout Europe's top clubs, it's
easy to see why Spain is considered one of the favorites to lift the World Cup trophy this summer.
Having exorcised some of its demons and silenced critics by winning the European Championship two
years ago, Spain is still riding high and playing some of the best soccer on the planet.
News late yesterday is that Tranquillo Barnetta is looking to leave Bayern Leverkusen this summer.
Barnetta-Would be an excellent signing Barnetta was linked with a transfer to Newcastle during this
past January window. However an ill-timed knee injury put an end to Newcastle's interest. Their
interest could be rekindled with the likelihood of a Gervinho [.
Greetings from a cyber cafe - here's your 5 minutes or less "Butt's Brain" style commentary from
the ground in Cape Town:
Uruguay impressed last night and South Africans were left deflated here on Long Street... But
there is still a mathematical (and realistic) chance that France - Mexico draw today and then it's
all to play for in the final game for Bafana Bafana vs France.
Ronald GonzÃ¡lez planeÃ³ el partido para jugar al contragolpe. Sabe de las debilidades de Suiza
para proponer. De entrada, Barrantes sorpresivamente aparece al lado derecho, Azofeifa por
izquierda, algunos metros mÃ¡s atrÃ¡s. Adelante Parks, metido entre los dos centrales suizos.

Bayer Leverkusen have revealed that their Swiss midfielder is attracting the interest of a number
of clubs- including Arsene Wenger's Arsenal. Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Tranquillo Barnetta is
seemingly a wanted man. The Werkself have made it known that a number of top European clubs are
keeping tabs on their midfield star.
Liverpool takeover talks are back on, according to financial news source Bloomberg, with owners Tom
Hicks and George Gillet ready to sell the club to a Kuwaiti investment group. The Kuwaiti
consortium that have already shown an interest in buying the club have revealed this week that both
parties are willing to negotiate, meaning the [.
