Ranking France's 20 Greatest World Cup Moments

LUCA BRUNO

There are many ways to pick out great World Cup moments. Some are filled with agony and despair, some are memorable for the wrong reasons, but many are remembered for all the right reasons.

When picking out some memorable moments in Frances World Cup history, it is hard to forget the bad times that gained a number of headlines: the strike of South Africa 2010, the poor performances of 2002 and the failure to qualify in 1994.

However, when remembering Frances greatest moments, we have to remember the good times: the moments that bring smiles to the French fans, the moments that will make any highlight reel and the magical moments that the fans still talk about in bars.

Thats what we have done here. Lets forget the bad times and remember all of the good moments that France have enjoyed throughout the decades.

Thats the criteria for making this list. All of these moments have made a positive impact on Frances football history.

The first tournament may have been held in South America with Uruguay winning the first ever bid in 1930, but the first man to get his hands on the World Cup trophy was a Frenchman. Abel Lafleur was the French sculpter commissioned to create the trophy for the first World Cup tournament.

Although born in South West France, Lafleur was a student at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. The figure on the trophy was inspired by Nike, the ancient Greek goddess of victory. With Lafleur known for specialising in the naked female form, the end result was a wonderfully beautiful statue.

Cue Samba: Brazil's World Cup Bound to Be Special

April 8th, 2014 by wholesalefhlnk

Like sunshine and happiness or Lennon and McCartney, football and Brazil go together, each making the other better. So the first World Cup in Brazil in 64 years is bound to be special.

Having cracked open a new continent four years ago in South Africa, the planet’s most popular sport now returns to its spiritual home, the country which more than any other has put the wow factor into football.

Football and Brazil will both win if the four-week feast of 64 matches fulfills expectations for a samba-fuelled carnival of goals and fun, a showcase for the game’s stars to prove their worth or see their thunder stolen by exciting new talents.

But South America’s largest country and the sport that many of its 200 million people treat as a quasi-religion will emerge as losers with damaged reputations if the 20th World Cup goes wrong, which it could.

Brazil squandered too much precious time in the seven years it was given to prepare. Construction deadlines were repeatedly missed. Many promised transport improvements were scrapped or will not be ready for the June-July influx of fans from around the world. The runaway $3.5 billion spending (triple Brazil’s initial estimates) on 12 stadiums (four more than World Cup organizer FIFA actually needed) infuriated Brazilians.

At the year-to-go mark, during the Confederations Cup tune-up tournament last June, hundreds of thousands of them poured in protest into city streets across the vast country, asking why hospitals, schools and other essential services aren’t as good as the newly built or renovated World Cup arenas.

The pop and hiss of police tear-gas canisters, workers plunging to their deaths at World Cup construction sites, tangles of red tape and other problems during the preparations haven’t been great advertising for the idea of a dynamic and capable Brazil, one of the so-called “BRIC” powerhouse economies of tomorrow, along with Russia, India and China.

If things go awry during the World Cup or if the violent crime problems of Brazilian cities ruin the experience for visiting fans, people will ask whether Brazil is also going to make a fist of the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro and if it bit off more than it can chew in hosting the biggest mega-events in sports so close together.

So Brazil and FIFA, which earns the vast bulk of its billions of dollars in revenue from the World Cup, need the football to shine. There is every reason to believe that it will, just so long as players deal intelligently with the tropical heat and humidity in some cities and, for some teams, many thousands of kilometers (miles) of travel.

Of the 32 teams, only a few Brazil, Argentina, Spain and Germany, to name just the top contenders will genuinely be expected to win. But plenty of other teams Uruguay, Italy, Colombia, Belgium, Portugal, France, perhaps the Netherlands, England and a few others are good enough or have players dazzling enough to produce must-watch games, to upset favored opponents and to rightfully entertain ambitions of going fairly deep into the knockout stages. For half the teams, the adventure will stop after three group-stage matches, with the weakest possibly going home without a single point or even a goal.

Exclusive – Qatar DID NOT buy World Cup, insists bid chief

April 4th, 2014 by healthybeeme

Qatars World Cup chief has blasted claims the country bought the World Cup.

There have been allegations money changed hands during and after the bid process, but those suggestions have been vehemently denied.

In an exclusive interview with Keys and Gray, Hassan Al Thawadi, The Secretary General of Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, insisted: We did not buy the World Cup. Its as simple as that.

I go back to a lot of people that look at us and say its shocking that we won and I go back to the simple thing why we won? Its because we worked hard, harder than a lot of people.

We put heart and soul into this [bid] and thats what frustrates me. When we first started people thought it was a no-go. A lot of people sat down and said, youre daft, youre not going to win it.

When we first started we said, OK, we want to host the World Cup, whats stopping us?

Number one, country size, because were a small nation. OK, fair enough, but we looked back and said is that such a bad thing? When you look at South Africa, which was a huge success, when you look at Brazil and Russia, youre looking at nations where travel is an issue.

It takes a lot of effort and puts stress on people, whether its football players who, after a very stressful season, are expected to play at the highest level, but at the same time looking at fans.

Can they move from one place to another, looking for accommodation, looking for flights? What were saying is its a compact World Cup. Youre based in one place, in one accommodation, you get to explore, you get to watch more than one game a day.

The location of Qatar being in the centre [of the world] means its easy access. Youve got a lot of airlines that congregate in this point of the world. It makes it a lot easier for a lot of people to arrive here.

Ad of the Day: Coke and Pepsi Storm the Field with Dueling World Cup Campaigns

April 3rd, 2014 by healthybeeme

World Cup fever is heating up fast. Soon you’ll need one of the globe’s two major soda brands to help you cool down.

Following the release of Nike’s new soccer ad on Tuesday, Coca-Cola and Pepsi both unveiled their own tributes to futbol on Wednesday morning, ahead of the 2014 World Cup, which kicks off June 12 in Brazil.

Coca-Cola (which, unlike Pepsi, is an official sponsor of the tournament) says its marketing program around the 2014 World Cup is the largest in its history. Themed “The World’s Cup,” it celebrates soccer as a force for social good.

The two-minute launch spot, by Wieden + Kennedy So Paulo, tells the story of soccer teams in Otsuchi, Japan, Eastern Europe, the Amazon and Ramallah, Palestinefour places where the sport had helped people overcome tension and hardship.

That ad is supported by a ton of other content, including documentary-style short films (themed “Where Will Happiness Strike Next,” the subjects range from a blind team in Brazil to a group of grannies in South Africa); an original musical anthem; a “Happiness Flag” photomosaic that will feature fan faces and messages; a FIFA World Cup Trophy tour; and a uniquely Brazilian visual identity for the whole campaign.

“Just as Brasil is everyone’s country and Coca-Cola is everyone’s drink, the FIFA World Cup is everyone’s cup,” Joseph Tripodi, executive vice president and chief marketing and commercial officer for Coca-Cola, said in a statement. “Through ‘The World’s Cup,’ Coca-Cola wants to celebrate real people playing football, demonstrating how the game is a force for a more inclusive and connected world.”

Meanwhile, Pepsi released its own two-minute spot on Wednesday with a completely different approachfeaturing celebrity players and musicians in a lighthearted story set on the streets of Rio.

The ad, by 180LA, follows YouTube musician Stony, who wanders the city playing music, and just happens to run into six of the worlds best soccer playersLeo Messi of Argentina; Robin van Persie of the Netherlands; Jack Wilshere of England; David Luiz of Brazil; Sergio Agero of Argentina and Sergio Ramos of Spain.

At the end, we get musical royalty as well, as Janelle Mone appears and performs an exclusive new take of David Bowie’s “Heroes.” (You can download her version on iTunes starting today.)

There’s also an interactive version of the Pepsi spot featuring U.S. star Clint Dempsey, with various moment that fans can unlock.

Adidas puts HD cameras in a World Cup football

April 2nd, 2014 by aquappyHeisee

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be part of a kickabout with Messi, Neymar and the world’s finest footballers, now’s your chance to find out… as long as you don’t mind being the ball. Adidas has put HD cameras inside a high-tech match ball to get soccer fans excited ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

The all-seeing Brazucam is a customised Adidas Brazuca world cup ball with six GoPro-style HD cameras inside, capturing 360-degree views of the beautiful game as it’s booted around the pitch by the likes of Xavi Hernandez, Dani Alves, and Cristian Tello.

In the run-up to the World Cup, Adidas will show off videos captured from the Brazuca’s point of view on the Adidas Football YouTube channel and at the Brazuca website, as the ball journeys through footie-frenzied countries including Spain, Germany, England, Russia, Japan, the USA and Mexico, along the way hoofed and headed by stars such as Manuel Neuer, Philipp Lahm and David Villa.

The Brazuca is decked out in colours inspired by traditional Brazilian Bahia wish bands, made up of six pieces stitched together to give the players plenty of grip on the ball.

As well as being the host nation, Brazil is the most successful country on this stage with five World Cup wins.

The 2014 World Cup kicks off in Sao Paolo on 12 June when hosts Brazil take on Croatia. The world’s 32 best teams, including England, Australia and the USA, will then battle it out over 64 games across 12 stadiums to wrest the coveted World Cup trophy from holders Spain.

The ball could have more impact on the game than you think. The last competition in South Africa saw players criticise the Adidas Jabulani ball used in matches, describing it as “impossible” and even “supernatural” for changing direction unexpectedly — prompting NASA testing of the controversial soccer sphere.

Football: Costa debuts as Spain, Italy finalise World Cup preparations

March 5th, 2014 by saidina

MADRID: Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa is set to make his long-awaited debut for Spain when the world champions host Italy on Wednesday in their final match before both sides name their squads for the World Cup.

Ironically Costa also made his debut for the country of his birth, Brazil, against the Azzurri just over a year ago.

However, he has since switched allegiance to his adopted country and having missed friendlies against Equatorial Guinea and South Africa in November due to injury, will get his first taste of action for Spain at his club ground of the Vicente Calderon.

The 25-year-old is expected to rival Manchester City’s Alvaro Negredo for the lone striker’s role in Brazil later this year as coach Vicente Del Bosque has left out his previously preferred pairing of David Villa and Fernando Torres from his 22-man squad.

Gerard Pique is Spain’s only big name absentee through injury so Sergio Ramos will be partnered in central defence by either Javi Martinez or Raul Albiol, and Ramos said the game will take on extra significance with the World Cup just three months away.

“It will be a nice game because Italy is one of the biggest teams in the world. They have always had the utmost respect from the Spanish national team, so I am sure the fans will enjoy it,” he said.

“The World Cup will be here before we know it, so the players and fans are more motivated.”

Del Bosque has yet to confirm who will be his first-choice goalkeeper in Brazil. Captain Iker Casillas remains the favourite despite not playing in La Liga with Real Madrid as he has been in fine form in the Copa del Rey and Champions League.

“I hope to play against Italy. To be in the national team is very important for me and I am grateful for the confidence the coach has shown in me,” Casillas told Spanish radio station MelodiaFM.

Del Bosque has often used two goalkeepers in friendly matches, though, so Barcelona’s Victor Valdes could also be involved.

Guardiola or Mourinho? TVs race for World Cup pundits intensifies

February 26th, 2014 by wholesalefhlnk

We are always interested in which big names rock up to join the usual presenters and pundits on our TV screens for a World Cup – until we find their musings to be uninteresting, that is.

But when arguably the two best managers in world football are in contention for spots on the famous sofas of British football broadcasting it really is an opportunity to be excited.

Who would not want to hear the thoughts of Pep Guardiola or Jose Mourinho as the action unfolds in Brazil?

World Cups offer big names the chance to become casual and very well-paid pundits for a short stint and most do not refuse the opportunities which present themselves.

Pep Guardiola’s representatives are understood to have asked for 250,000 for being a part of ITV’s coverage of the semi-finals and final alone in South Africa in 2010 – that’s according to a report in the Daily Mail.

It is believed that a similar fee would be commanded by Jose Mourinho if the Chelsea boss were to be taken on as an expert-on-the-couch by British broadcasters this summer.

Guardiola and Mourinho would come at a high price for TV companies, but such huge names in the football world could help play a key role in winning the usual ratings war.

But who is going to be sitting next to either of the two: Adrian Chiles or Gary Lineker?

World Cup – Drogba could be big factor in Brazil, says coach

February 19th, 2014 by jos

Drogba, 35, will lead his country in their third World Cup finals appearance as the Ivorians strive to make it out of the group stage for the first time.

As age begins to catch up with the charismatic striker, who now plays in Turkey with Galatasaray, so too has the question of international retirement, and Lamouchi confirmed Brazil 2014 would be Drogba’s last World Cup.

“For sure, the World Cup is going to be his last and he’ll want to achieve,” Lamouchi told Reuters at FIFA’s World Cup workshop in the Brazilian coastal city of Florianopolis.

“For the Ivory Coast it is the third time to be at the World Cup and for this third adventure there is a sense that nothing is impossible.

“It’s not complicated. Didier Drogba propels Ivorian football and the Ivory Coast team.

“He is an icon, not only in Abidjan and elsewhere in the country but also across Africa.

“He is a great player, a good man, a very intelligent person. He’s a good professional, who contributes his part of the collective.

“He can be a big factor,” he added.

Drogba, who has 60 goals in 98 appearances for his country, featured in two previous World Cup finals where Ivory Coast were handicapped by tough draws in both Germany in 2006 and South Africa four years ago.

Drogba’s position in Lamouchi’s squad has been threatened at times after he was dropped twice in the last 12 months amid local media reports of personality clashes.

Brazil to launch program to save World Cup mascot …

February 14th, 2014 by healthybeeme

RIO DE JANEIRO Brazil will begin a program meant to save the endangered three-banded armadillo, the mascot for this year’s World Cup, the Environment Ministry said Tuesday.

The move was applauded by environmentalists, who have complained that little has been done to save the animal since it was named as the tournament’s mascot. They are calling on FIFA to invest more in its conservation.

The three-banded armadillo is in danger of extinction, largely because of deforestation and hunting in its habitat in northeastern Brazil. Its meat is considered a delicacy by some in that region.

Those risks in large part are why the armadillo was chosen as World Cup mascot. Another is that when it’s frightened, it rolls up into a ball small enough to fit into one hand, looking like a tan soccer ball.

Environmentalists working to save the creature complain that FIFA is investing little of the profits from merchandising the mascot into saving the animal.

“More Brazilians are aware of the animal than before, but it hasn’t resulted in more funds to help save it,” said Rodrigo Castro, director of the Caatinga Association environmental group that started a campaign with the U.S.-based Nature Conservancy in 2012 to get the armadillo named as the World Cup mascot. “All the stuffed armadillos being sold, the T-shirts with its image, little of that profit is being used to save the animal.”

FIFA didn’t immediately reply to an emailed request for comment.

The Environment Ministry said it would take concrete steps by the end of this year to help save the armadillo. Those will mostly focus on efforts to conserve the animal’s habitat and to educate people about its risk of extinction in hopes of discouraging hunting.

The mascot is called “Fuleco,” derived from the Portuguese words “futebol” (football) and “ecologia” (ecology). It carries the colors of the Brazilian flag the armadillo is yellow, with green shorts and a blue shell and tail. It is dressed in a white shirt emblazoned with the words “Brazil 2014.”

The mascot of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa was a leopard called Zakumi. The 2006 tournament in Germany featured a lion called Goleo.
