Brazil vs. England

In Football, International Friendly on November 10, 2009 at 15:08

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 Frank Lampard, Ashely Cole and Glen Johnsen have also withdrawn from the squad.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.

Champions League: AC Milan vs. Real Madrid

In Champions League, Football on November 1, 2009 at 12:45

By Joe,

Ronaldinho looks to shine once again against Real Madrid.

Two of the biggest names in European football will meet again for their second matches in Group C. The first match, a fortnight ago, ended with a Milan 3-2 victory at the Santiago Bernabeu. Since that famous victory, Milan have not looked back and everything have gone positive for them.

Milan rejuvenated themselves by claiming a victory over Real Madrid in the Champions League Matchday 3 and saw themselves improve as a team in both domestically and European competitions. They have now shot themselves up to the top half of the Serie A by beating Parma 2-0 last weekend. Marco Borriello scored two goals that could prevent F. Inzaghi from a starting lineup on Tuesday evening. Manager Leonardo will be without Marek Jankulovski, Daniele Bonera, Christian Abbiati, Marco Storari, Oguchi Onyewu and Davide Di Gennaro against Madrid. The trio, Ronaldinho, Pirlo and Pato will be the one to watch for the Rossoneri.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini will have to win the heart of the Madrid fans by beating Milan this midweek. His time at Madrid came to difficult turn since they lost 4-0 to a third tier side Alcorcon in the Copa Del Rey. The team responded with a 2-0 home win against Gefate where Gonzalo Higuain struck twice with 10 men. Don’t expect Pellegrini to bring Guti to Milano as they are not in talking terms and Cristano Ronaldo has not recover from his injury

Kaka returns to his spiritual home at the San Siro but as a Madrid player. Last time these two teams met, it was an exciting game where chances were flying everywhere. This could be another encounter where lots of goals to keep everyone entertained. A draw looks likely to end this fierce rivalry between two of the most successive European Champions teams in history.

Champions League: Real Madrid vs. AC Milan

In Football on October 18, 2009 at 21:45

By Joe,

Former AC Milan player, Kaka, could come back haunting his old teammates in the first meeting between Madrid and Milan.

Former AC Milan player, Kaka, could come back haunting his old teammates in the first meeting between Madrid and Milan.

Two of the biggest names in European football will meet at the Santiago Bernabeu for the first back to back encounter between Real Madrid and AC Milan. Both teams have won this competition with a total of 16 European Champions Clubs Cup triumphs between them. Milan will travel to Madrid in search to challenge for a top spot in Group C.

Madrid have been busy buying players this preseason and two of the world’s best players have settled into the Madrid squad with ease. Cristano Ronaldo and Kaka have been scoring goals for Madrid and they look like a formidable opponent at any given day. Their defense is a bit shaky but their attacking forces compensate their mistakes at the back, like in their weekend 4-2 win against Valladolid.  Kaka will be looking forward to play against his former team mates and fans. Guti and Ronaldo are ruled doubtful to face Milan while Fernando Gago, Christoph Metzelder and Ruud Van Nistelrooy are out injured.

Milan is struggling in Serie A and that could transpire to their Champions League campaign. They suffered a home defeat to FC Zurich in the last round and that has made Group E wide open to compete for the second spot to qualify for the last 16. The departure of Kaka has really affected the team as other Brazilian players, Ronaldinho and Pato, have not shown their worth yet. They travel to Madrid knowing that things are against them and Coach Leonardo will need at least a point in Madrid to salvage their pride.

Real Madrid are favorites against Milan. They have come out on top in nine out of the eleven occasions in the Santiago Bernabeu. The last affair ended with a 3-1 win to Madrid back in 2002/03 where Raul scored twice. Kaka could haunt his former team so check out Betsson as they are offering 1.45 for a Madrid win.

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.

kaka ronaldo

As many domestic leagues are preparing for the new season, many European clubs are heavily investing in new players to strengthen their squad. Record signing has been broken once again and Real Madrid have been dominating the headlines.

Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid – £80 million

World most expensive player, Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo has agreed to play for Real Madrid for the next 6 years. He leaves Manchester United after playing 292 games for them, winning 1 Champions League title, three Premiership title, one FA cup, two League Cups and one Fifa Club World Cup. He was bought by Alex Ferguson for only £12.25 million as a replacement for David Beckham. Now he seems to be following the footsteps of David Beckham and overshadowing him with the heavily price tag. It is believed that Ronaldo has a £90 million buyout clause. Ronaldo will be presented at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium later in July.

Kaka to Real Madrid – £56 million

2nd world most expensive player, Brazilian Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite or better known as Kaka, left AC Milan for Real Madrid at the price of £56 million. Before Ronaldo’s transfer, Kaka’s transfer broke the existing world record transfer at £48million for Zinedine Zidane, the price Real Madrid paid for him. A bid from Manchester City earlier this year at £100 million was offered but Kaka rejected the move to England. Kaka signed a 6 year contract with Real Madrid and the team look like returning back to the been the Galacticos team once again. Kaka will be presented at 20:30 CET on 30 June at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Glen Johnson to Liverpool F.C – £17.5m

Liverpool signed England’s right back Glen Johnson from Portsmouth after fighting off bids from Chelsea and Manchester City. This is Rafa Benitz’s first signing of the season looks to be strengthen his team to mount an assault on trophies in the new season. Johnsen will be happy to join a team with the likes of Captain Gerrard and Torres in the squad. The signing of Glen Johnson could see a few players leave Liverpool this summer.

Santa Cruz £16.5m and Gareth Barry – £12m (Manchester City)

Mark Hughes has been given money to spend and he has not dissapointed Manchester City fans so far in spending them. They have signed Gareth Barry for £12 million from Aston Villa, earlier on the month, and recently signed Santa Cruz from Blackburn for £16.5m. Manchester City seems to have every superstar on their wish list but they just don’t seem to have that appeal as Madrid or Milan. They certainly don’t look like stopping at this point.

Teams that will be spending and selling:

Watch out for these teams, as they will be headlining many front pages of the newspaper next month. Real Madrid has already been spending alot money recently so it could be time for them to sell. Barcelona won’t be watching their rivals stealing all the headlines, they will have to come up with something soon. AC Milan and Manchester United will begin to find the right players to replace the superstar they lost. Both teams have a lot of money to spend and there might be some big names coming their way. Chelsea has been awfully quiet but like Manchester City, they will always be part of the transfer rumors.

Now that Ronaldo and Kaka has found their new homes. Barcelona’s Samuel Eto’o and Valencia’s David Villa will probably hit the headlines in July.
