Anfield Talk at related • 0 views
Lucas Leiva has thanked his Liverpool teammates after they dedicated Sunday's goal celebrations to his new son Pedro Lucas.
The Brazil international became a father for the first time this week when his wife Ariana gave birth in a Liverpool hospital.
And so after both goals during our 2-0 win in Sunderland the players joined him in a 'rock the baby' celebration which was made famous by Brazilian World Cup winners Bebeto, Romario and Mazinho during USA 1994.

Greatest World Cup matches: Cameroon-Russia (1994)

Football Fanaticos at related • 3 views
The match between Russia and Cameroon in the first round of the 1994 was completely irrelevant for both teams. Russia had lost their previous two matches 2-0 and 3-1 to Brazil and Sweden respectively, while Cameroon had tied Sweden 2-2 and lost 3-0 to Brazil. This meant that while Cameroon had a small theoretical chance of progressing, Russia was out.

Hope everyone in the States watched the ESPN "30 for 30" -- "June 17, 1994" on Wednesday night. It was fantastic. However I just don't remember the 1994 World Cup being that lame, a gurgling volcano spewing cheese from sea to shining sea. Sure the Diana Ross* collapsing goal gaffe has been recycled as a "worst football moment" ever since then.

Few goals doesn't automatically mean a bad World Cup. I'm not going to patronise Pitch Invasion readers with lectures about the value of 0-0 draws and 1-0 games. Shit, I'll just say: Switzerland 1-0 Spain.

But we have now completed the first round of group games, and there have been 25 goals in 16 games.

Jose Mourinho Says Champions League More Important Than World Cup!

Inter coach Jose Mourinho is renowned for making controversial remarks,  for using the media to hammer his point and for manipulating the press to engage in psychological games against his toughest opponents. The focus here will be on Mourinho's latest statement which is actually inaccurate if one is to consider the many factors associated with the World Cup and involved in the buildup to the biggest sports tournament in the world.

Greatest World Cup matches: Brazil-Italy (1994)

Football Fanaticos at related • 2 views
The 1994 World Cup in the USA was a strange world cup: on the one hand it meant a rebirth of football in the sense of a wider commercialization as ever seen before, and the fans (who in USA showed a new friendler side) responded by showing a friendlier and more partying side. At the same time, some events put a dark shadow over the world party, notably the murder of the Colombian player Andrés

After the victory of West Germany and the reunification of the two Germanies it would seem that the 1990s would be poised to be the era where German football would dominate. Although the unified German team had not managed to defeat Denmark in the final of the 1992 European Championships, the team was strong and motivated to defend its title at the 1994 World Cup in the USA.

Italy managed to draw 1-1 against both Paraguay and New Zealand while failing to impress despite having seen a lot in terms of ball possession, in particular against the Kiwis when the Italians had just over 70% in terms of ball possession. Pundits and fans alike are debating what has gone wrong for the Azzurri in South Africa 2010 with some attributing it to the Italian tendency to start slow referencing Spain 1982, USA 1994 and even Germany 2006.

As I type this, Algeria and Slovenia are convincing me I shouldn't have woken up at 6am to watch them both hamfistedly try to score a goal. It has just finished 1-0 to Slovenia and that comes after the first two days of the World Cup produced a pitiful 1.4 goals per game, the lowest total for that period of games since 1986.

Spain and Italy are two great southern European footballing nations that have produced some of the best players, and at club level have some of the most winning clubs in the world.

En estos dias nos hemos topado con penales muy bien cobrados como el de Ezequiel de la selección española sub-19 quien perdio la final con Francia en el mundial de su categoria, otros han cobrado los penales de una forma que dan pena ajena.

Pero lo que tambien llamo la atención fueron las celebraciones de gol en varias ligas por el mundo, como la de estos jóvenes islandeses(Iceland) y la celebración del pescador, que le dio la vuelta al mundo, como explican ellos el anotador del gol festejo de esa manera ya que su compañero se llama Laxdal que en su idioma significa Salmon:

Why I picked France & South Africa to advance:

For all the talk that France is in rough shape (including from former and current internationals), they still have the most talented players in the group (despite being weaker than 2006). I don't believe that qualifying form has much to do with World Cup performance, at least when it comes to the title contenders.
