Didier Drogba spent a few minutes of being the hero of the party, an anti-hero and finally again the hero, lord and master of Chelsea.
Little did the Londoners to take the title of the Champions League. Further, Bayern Munich could have won the game on numerous occasions, but in football, forgiving is paid.
Muller scored the Germans in 83 minutes, which was already painted them very happy. But in a corner, when the Bavarians and celebrated the victory in their stadium, Mata put the angels on the head of the killer Drogba, who drew the final.
In extra time, Drogba made himself a penalty, which could complicate much the trophy to the blues but loose Robben launched, crushed by pressure, and Cech prevented both Munich.
Already in the penalty shootout, Mata began failing, but then Olic, followed Schwengsteiger definitely condemned the Bavarians. Abramovic already have your precious Cup Europe after more than 1000 million euros invested in the equipment. Perhaps football did very bright , but Chelsea showed he knew the minute fight more complicated.
Some people adhere to the maxim that preparation is everything. Other people say that this is a useless cliche. Nivea apparently believes it and wants to show that it’s true. The company has put together a promotion that is not like all of the other promotions out there. It is combining football and preparation with an underdog story that is sure to stir the masses. Who doesn’t love a good tale of a team that came from nothing and built itself into a machine? That is what The Great Football Experiment is all about and Nivea is at the head of the table here.
Without proper preparation, a team like Ivory, F.C. would be stuck playing Sunday League games against teams and players that no one will ever hear of. But things are changing for Ivory. After the club won the competition that allowed it to get involved in the experiment, its preparation habits are on the up. Nivea has supported this team, providing it with two of the most respected managers in all of football. Ivory are currently working with Terry Venables and Ray Wilkins, a couple of old FA guys who are trying to turn this team into a winner.
It was not long ago that Ivory were playing amateur games and just hoping to get out without injuries. With the help of Nivea and these coaches, they are undergoing a transformation. The team is now formally training. They are working on fitness and form. They are learning ball skills and learning to play as a proper team. A bunch of guys who might not have made it out of amateur play are trying to impress. So how will we know if the experiment has worked and if the time of the coaches has paid off?
That will all be determined at the end of the day, when Ivory will take on a team of determined English football legends. They will play with the best of the best, hoping to keep it close or score a win. Preparation is everything and Ivory are preparing for a world-class challenge.

The best teams on the continent contributed to the magnificent spectacle that took place in the UEFA European Futsal Championship which concluded last night. The uefa.com team of correspondents in Porto has selected 12 players from the eight teams that have played in the tournament, where Spain was crowned champion.
Alexander Feller (Italy) supplied in a masterly way down for personal reasons from the usual Italian goalkeeper Gianfranco Angelini. He left a clean sheet in three games with great performances. Even scoring the goal came from Italy in the final against Spain, the last goal of the tournament, where they lost 3-1.
Luis Amado (Spain) Although Feller was the goalkeeping record, Amado once again demonstrated its impressive quality especially in the semifinals against Portugal where he managed to stop a penalty in the decisive Joel Queirós round, putting his team in the final. Against Italy, numerous interventions were decisive for Spain to increases in the title.
Ricardinho (Portugal) The 22 years showed that one of the new football talent, especially when it amazed everyone with his goal in the semifinals against Spain with an impressive Chile. Although Portugal eventually fell, there is no doubt that with Ricardinho are many victories to come for the Lusitanian.
Marko Perić (Serbia) is the closest rival to Ricardinho the award for best young player of the tournament. After his performance in this European Championship is more than probable that the future of Perić is one of the great teams of European football. It was one of the highlights of Vic Hermans who was part of the technical study group during the tournament.
Shayakhmetov Vladislav (Russia) has been one of the fundamental pieces in the right role played by Russia, especially with its major goals in the victories against Serbia and Ukraine that led their team in the semifinals.
Roman Mareš (Czech Republic) There has been far from a good tournament for the Czech Republic, although Mareš brothers, Roman and Michal, withdraw from the selection having left flashes quality and making your team more competitive.
Sytin Serhiy (Ukraine) Ukraine was one of the disappointments of the tournament but Sytin, with only 25 years, assumed the leadership role of his young team. The player has the potential to inherit the style of the great Serhiy Koridze.
Cirilo (Russia) The Brazilian-born player made his debut in the first round against Serbia and did the best possible way with a hat-trick. Each of his next rival jumped to the park with the intention of stopping Cyril. In addition the player has been top scorer in the tournament with Predrag Rajić Daniel Serbia and Spain.
Fabiano Assad (Italy) Statistics show that more important was the close of the tournament’s best defense, at least before the final, and that gave the player a whole class of defense in the semifinals where they defeated Russia.
Kike (Spain) More than 100 international caps and now with three European titles to his credit, Kike has been one of the most important players of the tournament. He led the Spanish team in the moments when calm was needed, especially in the semifinal against Portugal, and shone on a computer that had great players like Daniel, captain Javi Rodriguez and star in the final Álvaro.
Florin Matei (Romania) Romania achieved the best result in the history of a selection on his debut in the finals of a UEFA European Futsal after defeating 8-4 in the opener to the Czech Republic. Matei made a hat-trick, like Captain Gabriel Molomfalean.

It is well known the increasing influence of television in the modern game: in a time where the clubs are hard to find the necessary ways to generate revenue, the money contributed by the media becomes a necessity for survival. The problem, the power that this gives the small screen. In the case of Mexican soccer, the last chapter dealing with football and television has been a scandal in the group stage of the quarterfinals of the Torneo Clausura: the occasion to make two breaks, at minutes 25 and 70, for rehydration of the players, took advantage of television channels to cut emissions and make a commercial break one minute in each of them. “Circumstance or business? In Mexico we are very clear.
The Mexican Football Federation (Femexfut) agreed to the above breaks all the quarterfinal matches for the players could rehydrate properly. So far, everything seems normal as there is nothing unusual in leagues where the heat can take its toll on athletes. In some cases, the games at noon may exceed thirty degrees. The controversy is given when making breaks in games played between Cruz Azul and Atlante at nine o’clock at night, with twenty degrees and raining. Televisa, which owns the rights, used to make the resulting commercial breaks. It was agreed, but was it necessary?
The case becomes even more bizarre when even the players knew that the cuts would occur. Neither the medical heads of the clubs involved, surprised and puzzled by the measure. “If they are professional footballers do not need to rehydrate at night”, say doctors in sports medicine specialists and trainers, who can not find medical justification for what happened.

Diego Maradona was in defeat, saying his team was simply overcome. However, the star of Argentina’s national team, Lionel Messi, was more honest. Historical defeat of Argentina by 6-1 against lowly Bolivia in the altitude of La Paz reopens the debate on a politically tinged theme, beginning with a complex debate about whether computers can-or should-play in those conditions extreme.
Messi’s description of his battle for 90 minutes at 3,600 meters above sea level in La Paz, the highest capital city in the world, leaves no doubt. “It’s impossible,” said Messi, the Barcelona striker fast ended the game clutching his thigh and exhausted. “Some of us suffer from terrible headaches, but did not want to use this as an excuse,” said Argentine defender Javier Zanetti, who plays regularly in Milan, Italy, located just 120 meters above the sea level. Bolivians, of course, might differ with the suggestion that Messi less oxygen conditions in the capital makes it impossible to play football fairly.
And the irony of the worst defeat suffered by the selection of Argentina in a playoff game in the World Cup, eclipsing the 5-0 defeat suffered against Colombia in 1993, Maradona was that it helped to campaign party in height.
A year ago, when FIFA was moving to ban international matches at high altitude, Maradona played an exhibition match in one hour at the Hernando Siles stadium in La Paz with Bolivian President Evo Morales, who is an avid soccer to show that it was not impossible. Read the rest of this entry »
ootball never ceases to amaze me every other day and one also for their hobbies, their topics, for many recurring situations that occur in a negative way season after season, for the enormous waste that clubs made with signings of alleged “cracks “that often fail or to be moderately acceptable players to play either third division, unprecedented decisions, capricious and absurd incompetent leaders who are more aware of what they read in newspapers manage sports club representing a minimum level of intelligence.
With the thread of this obviously inadequate mileage than many could boast let the kite waste and inconsistency reach the heavens and you can put a thousand examples of what I say and the bad is that some normal to see what happens, and otherwise does not explain that no action is taken, I dare say, would have to be at the level of council of ministers.
Recently and we will not name names, but is public, the news came out ranking (some managers may feel proud and even hang medals for the great work!) on Spanish football clubs of first division debts owed and the amount of what they should be would feed the entire continent of Africa for at least a year, but this is football, and football is well and the powers that be so calm and without getting out the ” colors (of shame or lack of it).
FC Barcelona resisted pressure by the previous victory over Mallorca and Real Madrid conceded five goals at home to Tenerife to preserve its place atop the standings with his eternal rival lurking just two points.
Barcelona gave no quarter to Tenerife in the last match of the day, with a triplet of Messi, Puyol a goal and an own goal by Ezequiel Luna, leaving the Blaugrana to 43 points.
Madrid was temporarily placed in the top of the table by beating on a snowy Bernabéu to Mallorca by 2 goals to 0. Kaká reappeared and Fernando Gago, who came to meet with Diarra.
