Adios and Aus Widersehen Qq Poker Online EURO 2008

FINAL SNOWDROPS FROM THE ALPS –

FOREIGNER FLARES
Too much was made of Germany’s Lukas Podolski gunning down his country of birth, Poland.
This is a globalised world, where people emigrate and every country is to blame for not enforcing racial purity tests in their national teams. Why, Qq Poker Online here’s an eleven of perfectly acceptable turncoats from the Euro 2008 squads:

Ramazan Özcan – Austria
Mario Gomez – Germany
Ibrahim Affellay – Netherlands
Ricardo Cabanas – Switzerland
Ümit Korkmaz – Austria
Hakan Yakin – Switzerland
Piotr Trochowski – Germany
Gelson Fernandes – Switzerland
Samir Nasri – France
Karim Benzema – France
Zlatan Ibrahmovic – Sweden

BEER TODAY, GONE TOMORROW
Vienna’s Heute newspaper led on Monday with the claim that fans were revolting against the
Sub-standard ale on offer in the official Fan Zones. At €4.50 a glass, apparently there are few takers for Carlsberg, the Danish brew which bagged exclusivity rights for the tournament. It quoted one Conrad Seidl, ‘The Pope of Beer’ (I wonder how you get that title), dismissing Carlsberg, but also a fan from Italy, a country hardly renowned for its knowledge of amber nectar.

SO THAT’S WHY
Scrambling for an explanation for Italy’s penalty exit to Spain, Gazzetta dello Sport delved into departing coach Roberto Donadoni’s psychology and wondered if a visit Donadoni made to the Amish country in Pennsylvania while he played for the New York Metrostars had instilled him with too much serenity for the national team job…

GAME, SET & SNATCH
UEFA’s Media Services helpfully provided hacks with the most indispensable release for the final: A potted biography of closing ceremony performer Enrique Iglesias. Shame on them though for omitting surely the two most salient points of Enrique’s life story – that his dad is the legendary singer Julio Iglesias, once …

Turkish tears as Togel Singapore France bags Euro 2016

It always seemed a pipe dream, but it almost came to pass.

That Turkey, a relatively poor muslim nation with humble infrastructure on the fringe of Europe, would pip two established football powers to the hosting of the continent’s prestige event always looked a bit of a long shot.

And yet, when it came down to the vote in Geneva yesterday, UEFA’s Executive Committee voted for France to host Euro 2016 by only one vote. France was a safe bet, the safest pair of hands of the three final competitors for the big prize. Italy, the other continental giant in contention, was eliminated after the first round of voting, perhaps still reeling from its rejection for 2012 in favour of Poland & Ukraine after Calciopoli and a season of ugly fan violence had exploded in UEFA’s face.

On paper, the French bid had little donkey work to do, Togel Singapore with the memory of France ’98 still vivid and the Eurostars and TGVs still zapping through la campagne at dizzying speeds. Nevertheless, UEFA still found time to nitpick about the hotel provision and the lack of space for media and hospitality around their stadia.

Compared to its 1998 selection, the French Football Federation’s choice for 2016 has no place for Brittany and the North-West with Nantes dropped in favour of Nancy and Strasbourg in the East, a region which missed out 12 years ago. On the Mediterranean coast, Nice replaces Montpellier, while in the far north, Lille’s future 50,000-seat venue is included, adding another convenient venue for travelers from the United Kingdom.

While the nationality of UEFA President Platini may have had an invisible influence on the votes, what could well have swayed wavering votes are the ongoing travails surrounding Poland and especially the Ukraine, a fear carefully exploited by …

Spanish and Swiss advance Togel Hongkong to U21 final

UEFA u21.UEFA U21 Championship 2011 Semi-Finals

Belarus 1:3 Spain
Czech Republic 0:1 Switzerland

Spain will play Switzerland in the European Under-21 final on Saturday after both semi-finals went to extra-time in Denmark.

Belarus almost pulled off a shock by leading Spain in Viborg until the 89th minute through Andrei Voronkov’s bicycle kick, until Adrian Lopez equalised then added a second at the end of the first period of extra-time. Substitute Jeffren Togel Hongkong Suarez made it 3-1 in the 113th minute to secure Spain’s passage to the final in Aarhus.

Switzerland made heavy weather of beating the Czech Republic in Herning before Ahmed Mehmedi’s long-range effort broke the deadlock six minutes before penalty kicks.

The losing semi-finalists have the consolation of knowing one of them will qualify for the 2012 Olympics if they win Saturday’s third-place play-off, meaning there will be one East European team at the London games.

Motors Driving Towards Success In Korea

It has been a topsy-turvy season in the K-League so far. Asian champions Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma have been kept off the bottom of the standings only thanks to the dreadful form of Gangwon FC. Suwon Bluewings find themselves in one of their annual slumps in form while champions FC Seoul have improved since earlier in the season but still can’t quite break free of the middle level.

One team though has been head and shoulders above the rest for much of the current campaign and that is Jeonbuk Motors. The team from Jeonju have found a level of consistency that the other 15 teams simply haven’t been able to match and not only that, it is entertaining fans in the south-west too. As Brazilian playmaker Eninho said on twitter at the weekend, “This is a Motors team without any brakes.”

Until Jeonbuk won the 2006 …
