Midweek football and this time it’s the quarterfinals for the Carling Cup. Arsenal will travel to Manchester City Wednesday evening in order to fight it out for a place in the semifinal. Both sides have recently distant themselves from the Premiership title and it looks likely they will have to find some silverware this season elsewhere.

Manchester City have drawn their sixth consecutive Premier League matches and that is damaging their quest to break into the Big 4.  Their recent Premiership 1-1 home draw against Hull City showed that some of their key players are not up to their best form. A bit of change to their starting lineup could be on Manager Mark Hughes future plan. He has Robinho, Vincent Kompany and Micah Richards fit again. Manchester City will advance to the semifinal of the Carling Cup after beating Arsenal’s youngsters 3-0 in the midweek. Stephan Ireland and Martin Petrov are rated doubtful against Chelsea.

The Blues are marching on after easily disposing their neighbors, Arsenal, last weekend, in the Emirates in a 3-0 emphatic win. They now travel to Manchester to face the blues of the city where both squads are full of star ridden players. The differences between the two clubs are seen by the results on the pitch. Chelsea have gone through a four match winning sequence and did not concede a single goal in the process. Manager Carlo Ancelotti will want the team to extend their lead on the top of the Premiership even without the service of Daniel Sturridge, Salmon Kalou, Alex and Jose Boswinga. Ashley Cole is expected to return to the lineup after limping off with a hamstring injury against his former club, Arsenal.

Chelsea crashed out of the Carling Cup after taking the match to extra time and penalties against Blackburn. They have gone 34 matches without losing in normal time and that’s some record that the Ancelotti will inherit. Manchester City fielded a strong team against Arsenal in the midweek and surely Hughes will recall his winning eleven. Stalemate looks likely the score but many will hope City will dent Chelsea winning run.

By Joe,

Terry scored a late goal last time England met Brazil and drew 1-1.

Both teams have qualified for the World Cup so this friendly match will serve as a warm up match before the prestige summer tournament nears. This match is taken place in the desert of Qatar in the newly built stadium of Doha. This will be the first time that both nations will play a match in the Middle East and the venue set in a warm condition in winter season. The 50,000 seated Khalifa International Stadium will play host for the first time in their history to two future contenders for the World Cup.

Brazil Head Coach Dunga will not be taking this match lightly as he named a strong 24-man party to face England. He has taken a number of Brazil’s English-based players like Manchester City Robinho, Liverpool’s duo Fabio Aurelio and Luca while the several star players like Kaka, Daniel Alves, Luis Fabiano, Lucio, Diego and Hulk. Dunga has given a call up to Palermo Fabio Simplicio to replace thigh injury Benfica Rameries. Brazil is also contesting with Roma to release injured pair Doni and Juan.

Coach Fabio Capello has taken the opportunity to call up Sunderland striker, Darren Bent, Stephen Warnock and Tom Huddlestone to replace injured players to Rio Ferdinand, Steven Gerrard, Aaron Lennon and Carlton Cole. Another name missing from the English squad is David Beckham as he will miss the friendly after his team, LA Galaxy, reached the Major League Soccer Western Conference Final. Surprisingly, Capello have decided not to include former Liverpool players, Michael Owen and David James for the trip to Doha. Frank Lampard, Ashely Cole and Glen Johnsen have also withdrawn from the squad.

Many Managers, in the Premier League, are puzzled over the decision for England to play Brazil in a meaningless friendly in Doha affecting their player’s fitness. Never the less, the scene is set for a glorious matchup between two of the greatest football nations in the world. Their last meeting ended up 1-1 in the premiere of the Wembley Stadium. Brazil looks to be the stronger side of the two in this occasion.

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.
