Eduardo Vargas
(Universidad de Chile / Chile)

Universidad de Chile have conquered the 2011 Copa Sudamericana in stunning fashion. Undefeated, with only two goals against in twelve matches, and a delightful style of football that brought back memories of La U's golden years in the '60s, when they were known as Ballet Azul and won five of their fourteen league titles.

The FIFA World Cup 2010 welcomes Chile to South Africa after they qualified in an impressive second place. This will be the first time they have qualified for the finals since 1998 (they were banned from qualifying for 1990 and 1994 after their 'keeper feigned injury during a qualification match against Brazil).

The great Chilean striker Marcelo Salas said his final goodbye to football this week, and appropriately enough he signed off with a hat-trick in his Chile XI vs Friends of Salas testimonial, in front of 50,000 in Santiago (above).

A full force Swiss squad featuring Alexander Frei and Tranquillo Barnetta will be in Vienna tomorrow evening to welcome the La Roja of Chile to their UEFA 5-star rated Ernst Happel Stadium. The Chileans will feature former Juventus player and all-time top goalscorer, Marcelo Salas, who hasn't played for his country for over two years. From the looks of their roster, it looks like he's going to need to score a couple of more if they are to have a shot at making this a decent match because the rest of the squad has a combined total of 21 career international goals, 14 less than Salas.

I love some of the stories that are coming out from these wanna be Liga Primer Indonesia clubs. Remember Bogor Raya where some official was quoted as saying they wanted a coach who had World Cup experience only to end up with some geezer whose last job was as assistant at a Divisi Utama club?
Now we have Tangerang United linking themselves, in today's Top Skor, with former Chilean international striker Marcelo Salas!

El argentino fue nuevamente galardonado con el premio al Mejor Jugador del continente americano, en la prestigiosa encuesta que realiza el diario uruguayo El País.

Durante el 2009, Verón -que se erigió como líder de una escuálida Selección- logró -además de la clasificación a Sudáfrica 2010- la Copa Libertadores junto a Estudiantes, club con el que consiguió el segundo puesto del Mundial de Clubes por detrás del Barcelona.

Paul Williams: A Tribute

The Footbal Tragic at related • 0 views
In early 2001, watching a game at North Sydney Oval with a friend, I noticed a familiar figure sitting a few seats across from me. Approaching him rather sheepishly, I excused myself and blurted that he was the finest Australian football commentator I'd heard, and that he always made football a pleasure to watch (or words to that effect).
