World Cup: France vs. Ireland

In Football, World Cup 2010 on November 16, 2009 at 10:05

FBL-WC2010-IRE-FRA

French forward Nicolas Anelka was the difference between the two teams last time they met.

The first leg Croke Park ended with a  French victory with an Anelka deflected 72-minute goal which put France in a commanding position before the return leg in Paris. It will be hard to see how the Irish will manage to come back from their disappointing performance in Dublin. The scene is set for another epic battle in Paris between France and Ireland to battle it out for one of the four spots left in the European zone to qualify for the World Cup.

France are favorites to qualify ahead of the second leg and Coach Raymond Domenech could earn himself another chance to prove himself. Domenech does not need to change much of his tactic nor his starting lineup on Wednesday as they did well against Ireland. The only incident that the French came into tussle was the bust up between Ireland midfielder Keith Andrews and France’s Lassana Diarra after the final whistle. A few words were exchange and it seem like Diarra had made some disrespectful comment over the Irish squad. French full-back Eric Abidal and Jeremy Toulalan will miss Wednesday’s game.

Coach Giovanni Trapattoni gave the thumps up for Liam Lawrence on the right side of the midfield in the first leg against France and looks likely to keep it the same for the second leg. Ireland played well but missed a few chances to take the lead in the first leg, they now travel to Paris in search for, at least, a goal to take it to extra time or penalties. A clean sheet and two goal win will put Ireland through to the World Cup. Trapattoni could well in for the same line up that started against France last Saturday. Robbie Keane is rallying the troop and motivating them for the tough task ahead of the second leg.

From Croke Park to Stade de France, this is the Irish’s last chance to qualify for the World Cup. France are sitting comfortably with the 1-0 lead and could settle the tie with another goal in Paris. Ireland will have all to play for and they will attack without thinking the consequences which will make this one of the exciting ties of the night. If anything is to go by from the last match’s bust up in Croke Park, then Stade de France will provide the fireworks.

World Cup Playoff: Portugal vs. Bosnia-Herzegovina

Ronaldo

Cristano Ronaldo won't be able to help his country out but Portugal can still qualify without his help

Portugal have been one of the major football nation to emerge in the last tournament in the European Championship and the World Cup. This time they face elimination threat as they face Bosnia-Herzegovina in a playoff two legged tie.  Danmark and Sweden qualified ahead of Portugal in the group and the Portuguese are desperate to join the others in the prestige tournament next summer.

Portugal are in this situation simply because they could not overcome the absence of their best player Cristiano Ronaldo. He is included in the squad against Bosnia but a rift between his club Real Madrid and country have appeared to resulted that he will not be fit for the match. Portugal Coach Carlos Queiroz has picked his 23 man squad and expect Ricardo Costa, Deco, Tiago, Nani, Simao and Richardo Carvalho in the starting lineup. He is also boosted with Hugo Almeida and Miguel returning from fitness.

Bosnia-Herzegovina finished second in their group behind European Champions, Spain. Head Coach Miroslav Blažević will be plotting his master plan to evict Portugal in this vital playoff two legged tie. Two players that Bosnia will count on in taking them to the world cup are Zlatan Muslimovic, from Udinese, and Edin Dzeko, Wolfsburg. Both players are top scorer for their country and if they can get things going then the Portuguese might find it tough to handle them. Bosnia will do their best to qualify for the world cup for the first time in their history.

It will be a tragedy if Portugal does not make it to the World Cup but a strong bond Bosnia team are a good replacement for them. Portugal will do their best to wrap up the tie in Lissabon and if that happens, Bosnia will be facing a uphill struggle to qualify. Bosnia knows this is already a tough task so they would try to avoid getting trashed in Portugal, if possible.

World Cup Playoff: Ireland vs. France

Can Robbie Keane shoot Ireland in the World Cup next summer in South Africa?

Can Robbie Keane shoot Ireland into the World Cup next summer in South Africa?

A two legged tie between Ireland and France will determine one winner who will join the big party in South Africa next summer for the World Cup. The first tie will be played in Ireland at Croke Park and the Irish will be hoping to get a good result at home before traveling to France next Wednesday for the second leg. France are favorites to go through to the World Cup.

Ireland are no strangers to play offs as they were in the playoff qualifying round for the World Cup in South Korea and Japan 2002. They beat Iran 2-0 in Croke Park but lost 2-1 out in the 2nd leg in Iran denying them a place in the World Cup 2002. Today, they have another chance to qualify for the World Cup again through the Playoff but this time with a stronger squad and with an experience Italian Coach, Giovanni Trapattoni. The Italian have call up most of the Premier League Irish players like Robbie Keane, Richard Dunne, John O’Shea, Shay Given, Stephen Hunt and Kevin Doyle to lead the way to a place in South Africa. Keiren Westwood will be replaced by Brain Murphy.

France have surprisingly omitted Captain Patrick Vieira for their double encounter against Ireland. Coach Raymond Domenech decided to cut Vieira because he has not been a regular in the Inter team. Vieira has only appeared nine times for Inter in all competition. Domenech has an aura of doing his business in a mysterious way and he has striked once again by picking two uncapped players, Girondins Bordeaux goalkeeper Cedric Carrasso and Olympique Lyon defender Aly Cissokho. France will be travel to Ireland with familiar faces like Nicolas Anelka, Abou Diaby, Patrice Evra and Thierry Henry.

Ireland was unbeaten in their group and that’s a positive sign going into the match against France. There will be no shortage of excitement in this tie and both teams have players to attack at any given time. Last time France visited Croke Park, they were victorious with a 1-0 win but this time the Irish will at least claim a draw.

World Cup: Uruguay vs. Argentina

Leo Messi and Argentina took a stride closer stride in qualifying for the World Cup by beating Urugary 2-1 last time they met.

Leo Messi and Argentina took a stride closer stride in qualifying for the World Cup by beating Urugary 2-1 last time they met.

Argentina is struggling to secure an automatic qualifying spot for the World Cup and thats due to the lack good result away from home. Uruguay is also in the same situation as the Argies and a win over the Deigo Maradona’s men will make sure they aviod the playoff match against a team in the North American region.

Uruguay won their match against Ecuador last weekend with a late winner from Deigo Forlan. They went behind 1-0  Uruguay is currently 5th in the tables with 24 points. They are looking to qualify for world cup via. automatic sport rather than the playoff spot they currently occupy. A home win against the Argies will take them straight to the World Cup with 27 point finsihing in fourth place. Deigo Forlan and L. Suarez will be the key players to get Uruguay to the World Cup without playing the playoffs.

Argentina’s hope of another World Cup nearly dashed away if it wasn’t for Martin Palermo’s late winner home against Peru. That goal was vital as Argentina have their destiny in their hands as a draw or win against Urugary is enough to secure a safe passage to the World Cup. A defeat could mean that Argentina will miss a World Cup for the first time in 30 years, a record that Deigo Maradona would not want to be remembered by.  Maradona will have a strong squad travelling to Urugary but will that be enough to keep their world cup campiagn alive?

This is the absolutely the last chance for Maradona to show the country what he can do as a coach. He has been on a lot of criticism of the late but one win or draw could ease the pressure. Argentina have not able to gel and their tactics looks a bit scrappy at times. If a draw is enough to take them through then that might be just what will happen, Betsson is offering 3.00 for a draw.

Brazil have qualified for the World Cup but they will not settle for another draw against Bolivia.

Brazil have qualified for the World Cup but they will not settle for another draw against Bolivia.

 

World number one in the Fifa Ranking and current leaders of South American World Cup qualifier, Brazil, will end their World Cup campaign against Bolivia away and home against Venezuela. Brazil have already qualified for the World Cup but Coach Dunga has named a strong 24-man squad which includes a few Brazilian European based household names.

Boliva, led by Coach Erwin Sanchez, have failed to make the grade in qualifying for the World Cup. They are currently 2nd last in the group with 12 points in 16 matches played and 10 points away from a qualifying chance to the World Cup. There is not much more that Sanchez to do but a win here can put some pride back to the nation. Bolivia did surprise Brazil last time they met as Bolivia managed to get a hard earned 0-0 draw in Rio de Janeiro.

Brazil have lots to celebrate this year, they will be hosting the World Cup in 2012, hosting the Olympic in the 2016 and certain to qualify for the World Cup in 2010. All these good news have not gone through Coach Dunga’s head, he has named a strong 24 men squad which include players like Daniel Alves, Kaka, Lus Fabiano, Adriano and Lucio for the trip to Bolivia. He has also given Werder Bremen defender Naldo will return back to the Brazilian squad after a two year absent and Spartak Moscow midfielder, Alex, is also selected to face Bolivia.

Group Seven of the FIFA World Cup European Qualifying table will have two spots available in qualifying for the World Cup in South Africa next summer. Serbia is leading the group with 19 points from 8 matches played followed by France with 15 points and 8 matches played. France needs a win to make sure they guarantee at least a second place in the group.

Brazil are favorites to beat Bolivia. Even though Brazil have qualified for the World Cup, Dunga remains defiant in giving some European based Brazilian players a rest. Brazil might want to prove that their last result against Bolivia was just a fluke. Brazil to win away and Betsson is offering 1.72 for an away win.

England to get their 9th win in Ukraine? Capello will be hoping the three lions will maintain their winning form.

England to get their 9th win in Ukraine? Capello will be hoping the three lions will maintain their winning form.

Is Fabio Capello going for that 10 out of 10 wins that would set him apart from all his predecessors as England Boss? England have great players but with the help of Capello, he has transfer England as a well respected team on or off the field. They sailed through the world cup group stages and now facing Ukraine away in one of their last two matches in the group. Capello does not look likely to loosen up until he has won the World Cup beating the three lions on his chest.

Ukraine knows what it will take to get themselves to the World Cup, two wins will guarantee a safe passage qualifying as second in the group. They are currently 3rd in the group with 15 points while Croatia have 17 points but with a match played more. Their final match in the group will be an away match against the minnows Andorra. Ukraine travels to London with Coach Oleksiy Mykhailychenko have called up Dynamo Kyiv defender Yevgen Khacheridi to the national team camp as Dmytro Chygrynskiy and Andriy Rusol are injured. Vitaliy Mandzyuk is suspended against England due to bookings.

The likes of Beckham, Barry, Couch or Upson could be well in a chance to feature in the starting lineup against Ukraine on Saturday. As undefeated with 8 win out of 8 matches, England does not look likely to surrender that good form and record. For that reason, Capello has selected a strong 23 man squad that might give a few household names a 45 minute in Ukraine. Lampard, Gerrard, Terry and Rooney looks likely to start but others are hoping that Capello will not go with the strict régime. The England squad has omitted players like Michael Owen, Jermain Defoe, Ben Foster, Theo Walcott and Premiership top scorer Darren Bent. England fans might see the return of David James in goal.

England are clear favorites to beat Ukraine. Last time these two teams met was back in April where England defeated Ukraine 2-1 in Wembley stadium. Ukraine knows that need points and they need to get some here to keep their World Cup dream alive. Check out Betsson as they are offering 3.25 for a draw between Ukraine and England.

World Cup: Denmark vs. Sweden

FBL-WC2010 -SWE-DEN

This is one of the crucial matches in the World Cup Qualifying Group One schedule where Denmark will take on their brother, Sweden for a place in World Cup finals 2010.  The Danes are leading Group One with 18 points and 3 more than their Scandinavian neighbor while Portugal and Hungary are on 13 points. A home win for Denmark could guarantee the red and white colors been represented in South Africa.

Coach Morten Olsen has selected a 22 men squad for his World Cup qualifying encounter against both Sweden and Hungary during the International week. Both matches will be played in Parken and Denmark have a big chance to get that one point they need to qualify for the World Cup. Olsen will be welcoming Liverpool’s defender, Daniel Aggar back to the Danish squad after recovering from his back injury. He will also have the luxury of having Nicklas Bendter and Jon Dahl Tomasson available to lead the Danish front lines.

Sweden needs to get over their disappointing 1-0 defeat last time they met Denmark in Rasunda. If they want to qualify for the World Cup then this match is a crucial one for the Swedes as they have both Hungary and Portugal breathing on the neck. Coach Lars Lagerback will need to set his tactics to attack and get at least a point against Denmark. Lagerback will be sweating to get Zlatan Ibrahimovic fit for the match so he can partner up with Johan Elmander upfront.

Denmark needs one point while Sweden needs four points to guarantee the two spot available for the World Cup in Group one. Not to point out the obvious conspiracy but a point for both teams would not harm their quest for the World Cup. Denmark might have less pressure on them so a safe bet on a draw is a good choice. Check out Betsson as they are offering 3.25 for a draw.

World Cup Qualifer: Scotland vs. Holland

Scotland will have to beat the Oranje team in search for the play off spot to qualify for the World Cup in South Africa 2010.

Scotland will have to beat the Oranje team in search for the play off spot to qualify for the World Cup in South Africa 2010.

Scotland is still searching a route to the World Cup tournament next year in South Africa. A draw against the Dutch will guarantee them the second place in the group nine but not enough to seal a play-off spot for to qualify to the World Cup 2010. A win is a must for the Scottish while Holland have already qualified as winner of group nine.

After the crucial 2-0 win against Macedonia in the weekend, Scotland have brought life back into their World Cup campaign. Coach George Burley might be on his way out but he will want to finish his managerial career on a high with Scotland. He has added both Gavin Rae and Graham Dorrans into the squad because James Fadden is suspended and Callum Davidson withdrew from the squad with injury. Goal keeper, Craig Gordon, Scott Brown and Steven Fletcher is ruled doubtful. On the positive front, defender Gary Caldwell will be available after serving his suspension against Macedonia.

Holland was one of the first teams in Europe to qualify for the World cup tournament and they did it style. They are currently undefeated in group nine with 7 wins in 7 matches. They played a friendly match last weekend and beat comfortably Japan with 3-0. Holland could be without Inter Milan’s star player, Wesley Snejder, as he was carried off with an ankle injury against Japan. The Dutch squad will definitely be without Ibrahim Afellay as he is nursing a calf injury.

Scotland are desperate to beat Holland to get into that playoff spot. They have been dogged with injuries and suspensions for the last two matches and could go against them as they face Holland. The Dutch could take an ease to this game as the outcome would not affect their status for the World Cup. However, would the Dutch want to lose their 100% winning recording during the qualifier?   A draw would suit both team but Holland looks likely to go and win it in Hampden Park, check out Betsson as they are offering at 2.15 for Holland to win.

World Cup Qualifer: England vs. Croatia

Rooney and co. is looking forward to secure their spot in next year's World Cup tournament in South Africa.

Rooney and co. is looking forward to secure their spot in next year's World Cup tournament in South Africa.

England could start booking their hotel for next summer in South Africa once they have beat Croatia this Wednesday evening. A win here for the three lions will extend their undefeated run in Group 6 to 8 wins out of 8 games played. Croatia will be putting up a fight to give themselves some hope in gaining the automatic qualifying spot for the World Cup. They must win to keep their hopes alive.

Coach Fabio Capello has an impeccable status in current World Cup campaign. He has guided the team to a 7 wins out of 7 matches played and looks to continue against Croatia in Wembley. He will have the same 24-man squad available to him that beat Slovenia in an unimpressed 2-1 win last weekend. He will have John Terry return  back to the starting lineup after receiving a knock during training. The Italian maestro gave goal keeper  Rob Green a rare outing between the sticks but David James look to return against Croatia. Jermain Defoe is giving Capello a selection dilemma as he continues his goal scoring form against Slovenia, although Emile Heskey is preferred to start.

Two years ago Croatia ended England’s road to the European Championship 2008, they could repeat this feature if they were to win again at Wembley. Croatia beat Belarus 1-0 in the World Cup qualifier match and that will take them into  2nd place in the group with 8 games played and 17 points. Coach Slaven Bilic must thank goal keeper Vedran Runje for pulling out some great saves during the game. Bilic will be without veteran Vedran Corluka, as he was sent off against Belarus, and Luka Modric. Croatia will have to dig deeper if they want a win at Wembley this time round.

Both teams won their respectful matches last weekend. This should be an interesting match and the top 2 teams in group five. Last time they met in Zagreb, England brushed Croatia aside with a 4-1 win so it will be interesting to see what Croatia will come up with. England are favorites and check out Betsson as they are offering 1.62 for a home win.

The Danes celebrating the win 3-2 in Portugal which put them leaders of Group one.

The World Cup Qualifying Group One will see a titanic battle between Denmark and Portugal in Parken Stadium, Copenhagen. This game could decide whether Portugal will make it to the World Cup finals in South Africa next year. They are currently third in the group and needing a good result in Copenhagen.

The Danish team is leading group one with 16 points after 7 games played. They are undefeated in their World Cup campaign and could go on and qualify first in the group if they beat Portugal this Saturday. Coach Morten Olsen has given a late call up to Søren Rieks, Esbjerg fB, after Martin Bernburg, Brøndby IF, pulled out with a knee injury. Chris Sørensen has also pulled out of the squad while goal keeper Jesper Christiansen damaged his elbow which will be replaced by Kim Christensen. Goal keeper Thomas Sørensen is suspended against Portugal and Olsen will have to select carefully who his first choice goal keeper will be for the crucial match.

Portugal will be bringing all the big names to Copenhagen. Coach Llido Vale has brought in Boswinga, Carvalho, Nani, Deco, Ronaldo and Gomes for the crucial match against the Danes in Denmark. Portugal is currently third in group one with 9 points after 6 games. They are 4 points from Hungary who is currently second in the group. If they want to qualify for the world cup then they need to start winning soon or otherwise they will have a good vacation next summer. The Portugal national team could deploy Sporting Lissabon top scorer Liedson in the front after Hugo Almeida received an injury.

Denmark are undefeated in Parken Stadium and Portugal have got most of their points away from home. The Danes beat Portugal 3-2 back in September 2008 so this time around the Portuguese will have to go to Denmark in search for 3 points. The Danes will have to be cautious or otherwise it could be an embarrassing defeat.  A draw could be the ideal score line of the night and Betsson is offering 3.20 for a draw.
