FIFA World Cup Preview: South Korea Optimistic, To Hire Dutch Coach To Become Familiar With European Style Game

As compared to the United States and Australia, world No. 54 South Korea got off lightly in the last FIFA World Cup Draw, falling to Group H alongside Algeria, Belgium, and Russia. While the US and Australia landed on the Group of Death, the East Asian country found themselves on the “Happy” Group, a term made by the officials from the four nations involved in the group. Football pundits, especially ESPN, predicted that Belgium and Russia are the teams that are going to advance to the next stage of the competitions that will be held in Brazil but for Korean officials, nothing is sure yet. Russia manager Fabio Capello described the Taegeuk Warriors (the South Korea Nat’l football team’s nickname) as being a physically strong opponent. He even said that no team should take their opponents lightly because all teams are playing at the highest level.  Although they are optimistic, South Korean football officials insist that they should play their best to be able to overcome popular predictions for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. “It is daunting to have to face Russia in our first match as the country is in strong form. We should focus our energy on the

FIFA World Cup Group Draw: Team USA Falls Into Group Of Death But Coach Juergen Klinsmann Believes They Still Have A Good Chance

  The FIFA World Cup Draw is one of the biggest sports events that Americans anticipated last Friday. However, after the draws were settled, it seemed that pundits want the draw to be reset. The USA, which is yet to win a FIFA World Cup title, fell into what experts call the “Group of Death.” They were grouped together with Germany, Portugal, and Ghana. From this group, two nations (Germany and Portugal) belong to the top five based on the most recent FIFA rankings and two nations (Ghana, Germany) were also suspects for ending the US’s World Cup dreams in 2006 and 2010. The odds seem to be really not in favor of the North American country. However, for USA coach Juergen Klinsmann, who is by the way of German decent,  The Stars and Stripes has good chances in the competition. Although he was disappointed with the result of the draw, Klinsmann said they “couldn’t have a better opportunity than to play against such amazing countries as Ghana, Portugal and Germany.” “When they say the ‘Group of Death,’ we have to look at ourselves as well. We’re the U.S. national team and if it’s considered the ‘Group of Death’ [because

FIFA World Cup 2014 Sparks Controversy As Crime In Racism Emerges Over Selection Of Broadcast Hosts

Sao Paulo state prosecutor Christiano Jorge Santos will be the one investigating the controvery regarding the FIFA World Cup 2014 where Afro-Brazilian soap stars Lazaro Ramos and Camila Pitanga weren’t chosen and instead hire TV presenter Rodrigo Hilbert and his model wife Fernanda Lima as a racist issue in presenting and hosting World Cup draw in Bahia. “I opened the investigation due to the suspicion of a crime of racism on the part of FIFA, or by the company they selected to organise the show, GEO Eventos,” Santos told Reuters, while  The Sun  reports him as adding: “Racism is a serious matter in Brazil. We need to find out if a crime was committed. We do not want the image of our people to be whitened or distorted.” The governing body of football, FIFA, on the other hand denied claims that their decision was a racist matter since the selection of Lima and Hilbert – who are white – has nothing to do with any racism concerns but it is a decision which have already agreed upon years before after the two became presenters for the preliminary draw two years ago. FIFA has denied the claims, saying in a statement to

Manchester United, coming out of a 2-2 tie with Cardiff City, is expected to be the favorite in the match . Manchester United Manager David Moyes said Wayne Rooney could play every game all season. “There will be times when we do have to look after him. At the moment he doesn’t need it. But I will be looking for any signs of a dip. I look at a lot of other clubs and they have played their players continuously. It’s just at United here we’ve got a squad, we can rotate them, we have got other options. So I think I’ll try and just wait. If it [a dip] doesn’t come around, I don’t need to [rest him] and won’t do it,” he said according to The Guardian. “It doesn’t really seem to affect him in a way it does others. The point I’m making is I just want to make sure I keep him playing as well as he is doing.” Tottenham Hotspurs, coming out of a 6-0 loss to Manchester City, is slated
