Monday, December 7th, 2009

Chile 1962When the FIFA Congress in Melbourne in 1956, assigned to the household of Chile, many are, to put it mildly, surprised. All believe in the interest and enthusiasm of the Chilean public, but not in the ability of small South American country name ruthlessly capsicum, located in the foothills of the Andes, to organize such a big event. Moreover, when the May 21, 1960, exactly 2 years and 9 days before the World Cup, comes the big tragedy. Cool earthquake spare nothing and no one in Chile. The implications are terrifying. The whole world sympathizes of Chile, all countries can help with anything.

Americas World Cup hopefuls

Sunday, December 6th, 2009

USA and Mexico are both currently considered 80/1 propositions at 888sport, the world’s leading online bookmakers, to win the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. They are certainly the only real chances for the North American teams at the World Cup.
Both teams have had interesting World Cup histories. The Mexicans have often been considered serious contenders for the Cup but in recent times have failed to win games at crucial times in the competition. The Americans on the other hand have always entered the World Cup as outsiders but have had a few campaigns where they have unexpectedly made it to the finals.
The Mexicans probably appear to be the better bet of the two as they showed far better form over their northern counterparts with an impressive 5-0 drubbing at Giants Stadium back in July. The Mexicans will need the striking power of players like Castro and Vela and will rely on world class players like Dos Santos to steer the team.
Both of these two teams will need to have favorable draws and will more likely than not be fighting it out with three other sides for the last place in their group. Much comes down to the draw in the World Cup and it is part of the theatre of the event. The seeding works in a strange way and you can quite often end up in a ‘group of death’ that makes it very hard for middle ranked teams to progress.
The other team from the region is the team from Honduras. 888sport has them as 500/1 outsiders and you would expect them only to be making up the numbers in South Africa.

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

Brazil 1958 finalHowever, VI World Championship has an official finish. For joy! Against one another are the most decent. So far – no loss, with only one draw. Deserved! Something curious: Sweden and Brazil are the only ones in this World Cup, playing with golden-yellow shirts. One of them will have to come up with a backup team. “Short stick” falls on the Brazilians. They will play in blue. Is it a bad omen? Swedes have already secured the silver – previously unknown success, unique and never thereafter. But the appetite comes with eating and more in the 4th marks Lihodolm minutes – 1:0 for Sweden. Will the miracle? … No! Against Tre Kronur are stood not only 11 excellent, great players (Brazil has always kidded inimitable masters of the leather ball), but also a superb team. Improvisation are subject to a lean organization in the game of the composition, skillfully led by coach Feola outside and “playmaker” Diddy inside. Dual attacks are not an end in itself, a path to successful implementation of total superiority. Soon the result was equalized by Vava, then again he displayed his first. After the break came the turn of Pele. His performance in celebration of the third goal (goalkeeper transferred to an external shock folded by air – fantastic “drop sheet”) and now appears as cinema textbooks in football, but so far no one has repeated. Mario “Lobo” ( “Ant”) Zagata increased to 4:1. Swedes do what they can, to defend with honor, even counter-attacked, occasionally – Simonson reduces the difference, but shortly before the end Pele again no mistake – 5:2. Brazil is the champion of the world. After 5 ‘attempts to fly “at last the greatest in football is in the highest float freely, gently, beautifully, naturally! Brazilian-born is a legend.

Sweden 1958 – The Introduction

Saturday, September 19th, 2009

Sweden 1958 BrazilTurn of South America to organize the World Cup, but time passes and no candidate and no. Running aid of good old Europe again in the face of Sweden. Nobody is opposing, and contrary to the elite hitting Scandinavia. Subsequently, it appears that the choice of FIFA has hit in dozens. Green fields and forests, crystal lakes, tranquility and comfort of Sweden as finalists make the stay pleasant and quiet. To add to all this wonderful conditions for football, which offers this time of year (June) short Swedish summer. For summer, these latitudes, I asked one Swede: “You know here you have a real summer – hot, muggy?” And he slightly offended, replied: “What do we have to, it was people? On June 22 from 7 am, and all the way to 19:30 in the evening!” Just between these 2-championships (1954-1958) died Jules Rimet (24.10.1873-15.10.1956). International football movement lost its great shape. Rarely, cultural and civilized, extremely loyal to the game, he is the president of FIFA from 1921. and will remain in history as the man with lots of love, and twice more tenacity, overcoming enormous difficulties of any kind, creating a true miracle – World Cup. As a token of appreciation and respect for him, still alive in 1946. delegates at the FIFA congress unanimously decided to name the World Cup, better known as the Golden Nike “in its name. Sounds a bit authoritarian, but a fact – until 1970. official name of the World Cup is “Jules Rimet Cup”. And something interesting – from 1960. and a European Cup. Bowl, which received European champions, called “Henri Delaunay Cup”, ie named after the faithful follower of Jules Rimet and long gene. FIFA secretary Henri Delaunay. (more…)

Almost … Mexico were beaten by 4:0 and 2:0 with Yugoslavia, but Switzerland with its rational game not only presents great surprise – in the 90th minute at 2:2 Fridlander great blow to kick the beam … In that game against Alpians lights “warning light” for the “carioca” but they did not pay attention, the more they are beaten “the Serbs”, according to specialists who are most powerful Europeans in this World Cup. (I must have made when Yugoslavia with ease mob with Switzerland (3:0) and Mexico (4:1), but remains second and fell.) In the second group (Spain, USA, Chile, England) are the best Spaniards (3:1 v United States, 2:0 v Chile and 1:0 v England), but has an extremely strong response to the fall English football after England USA – 0:1. English for many years were considered invincible. Not participate in international football life. Play only with their neighbors in Albion, Grom them constantly. Considered frivolous to match forces with others, so be it and the World Cup here in Brazil, you pay tax mania for greatness. Loss of “tourists” to the U.S. is not only offensive, but is one of the biggest sensation in World Cup history. The players, wearing a shirt with his chest three recumbent lions, descend to the ground and a long, long will remember the murderous irony, which welcomed them to the island. Indeed, since then, and to this day, still has some amateur to be “kidded on the ground and beat” parents “! Often!

Before the World Cup shows that will debut only 1 team and what it is! – England! Finally … Proud team come as Aslan, but will soon leave as con … But this – later. It is worth mention extremely emotional in qualifying matches between France and Yugoslavia. After 1:1 in Paris and Belgrade, it is 3rd match in Florence.

France 1938 – Introduction

France 1938 world cupFrance where the most flagrant way is declared the host (breached the principle of rotation of the continent) to large (more) football “family” should have divorce. South Americans immediately declare boycott (the exception is Brazil – the only country in the world, participated in all World Championships so far) and are replaced by world football powers as Cuba and Netherlands Antilles ( ‘s World Championship, though!). After World continue and who knows how he would do this “dunanma” if humanity was faced with a fatally “To be or not to be?” The next world championship is only after 12 years and those surviving after at greatest tragedy in the XX Century (II-th World War) was so happy that they are alive, that they forget all their “white troubles”.
