leave a comment »

bosnia Croatian coach of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Miroslav Blažević, said Monday that his players will attack as “hungry wolves”, in the return leg of 2010 World Cup qualifiers scheduled for Wednesday in Zenica.

 “In the days remaining until the game, you create an environment so that the players are ready to attack the Portuguese as hungry wolves. We’ll storm, but for that we need the public support. I want to put such a pressure in early minutes, so that the Portuguese will not be able to understand what happens. We are convinced that we can recover the difference from the first leg and we can qualify for the tournament, “said Blazevic for the Bosnian daily newspaper Dnevni Avaz”.

 Muratov, the captain Sipahi and Rahimi were suspended, while the guests will miss Cristiano Ronaldo, injured.

Sparks rise from the French camp!!!

leave a comment »


After 1-0 in Ireland, in European 2010 WC play off’s in the French camp is not a pleasant atmosphere: France press wrote about the existence, before the match in Dublin,of a conflict between coach Domenech and captain Henry.

The Barcelona striker Domenech why dosen’t he uses the services of an experienced player, like Vieira, now fit after a series of injuries. It seems that there was a high tone on both sides, with a highly virulent Henry almost to have other uncontrolled reactions. Before the return leg , Domenech denied the scandal, but admitted that he talked with Henry in the hotel: “He is the captain and we should consult to decide what is best for france”.

 Thierry is the only survivor of the 1998 world champion team and everyone respects him and appreciates his ideas. “It is not the first time Domenech and Henry reach harsh exchanges of words, similar events were presented by the press  during Euro 2008.

Without Abidal, Toulalan and Diaby France has problems  before tomorrow’s return against Ireland. Thus, defender Abidal, with a superb defensive game in Dublin,  may not return to the game until early next year.

leave a comment »

Thierry_HenryThe qualities of striker Benzema puts Henry in the hot spot  for exclusion from the first squad.

France will play everything against the Faroes and Austria. These could be the last commitments ‘global’ selection of vice-world champion coached by Raymond Domenech. Meanwhile, Thierry Henry, recently accused of giving decisions against his manager, opens his mouth to emphasize the potential of Karim Benzema, a player underestimated by the same Domenech who often relegated to the bench: “Benzema is the future of French football striker”-states the Barcelona forward.
