EPL Talk at related • 0 views

Four years ago, South Africa was on the eve of hosting the continent's first FIFA World Cup. Questions abounded about South Africa's preparation: would the stadiums be ready? Would crime abate as to allow everyone to focus on the football? Would the logistics be tolerable? The answers to all the questions above were yes, more or less.

Football Fanaticos at related • 0 views
The first World Cup final on the African continent was special for many reasons. Firstly it was the first all-European final outside Europe, but also the first final ever without the participation of either Brazil, Argentina, Italy, or Germany. And there was certainly going to be a new world champion: for Spain it was their first World Cup final; it was the third for the Netherlands, having lost

The first World Cup in Africa came amid criticism whether the South African hosts were ready to host the tournament. On the pitch there was surely no doubt that Africa was ready: since the 1970s African football had taken enormous strides to take its place among the top world football.

It's not really a World Cup if there's not at least one or two missed deadlines for stadium construction. It's also not really a World Cup until major media outlets report on stereotypical "problems" associated with the host country. Before South Africa 2010, folks only wanted to write, read, and hear about witch doctors and goat sacrifices and "voodoo.

International suspensions in the wake of a disappointing major tournament exit are becoming something of a national pastime for Les Bleus.

After the disappointment that was the 2010 FIFA World Cup, France has clawed its way back into the international limelight under Laurent Blanc, and Les Bleus are the overwhelming favorites to capture Euro 2012's Group D.

Behind an attacking nucleus that includes the likes of Karim Benzema, Franck Ribery and Samir Nasri, France, which enters the tournament on a 21-match unbeaten streak, eyes a deep Euro run to put all memories of South Africa 2010 in the distant past.

World Cup 2014: Guns For Tickets

WorldCupBlog at related • 1 view

Tickets to the World Cup in Brazil are going to be fairly difficult to come by one would expect, if only in comparison to South Africa 2010. Gun violence is also something of a concern, so combining the two is obviously a natural course of action (work with me). Brazil's planning a "guns for tickets" drive ahead of the World Cup, netting at the very least a discount on tickets.

His 15 goals and 6 assists in 24 MLS matches (all starts) resulted in a 1.50 PP90. That season became his ticket to Europe. But in Europe he struggled to find a place where he fit.
