Edward Doe Adjaho believes that the absence of Stephen Appiahwas a major contributing factor

Ghana’s Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Edward Doe Adjaho believes that the absence of Stephen Appiahwas a major contributing factor in the national team’s disappointing showing at the World Cup 2014.

The former Ghana captain was recently a guest for the Speaker to witness a friendly match. Regarded as one of finest players for Ghana over the last decade, Stephen Appiah was the captain of the national team during the 2006 and the 2010 World Cup. Ghana performed exceedingly well in these tournaments andAdjaho says that it was largely down to the leadership skills ofAppiah.

The 34-year-old retired from all forms of football three years ago owing to a succession of injury problems. His international retirement came slightly earlier after the end of the 2010 World Cup. During a successful international career that spanned from 1995 to 2010,Appiah made 67 appearances for the national team. He will recently be given a testimonial as a recognition for his services. A number of top African players like Yaya Touré, Samuel Eto’o, and Didier Drogba, are expected to take part in this match. The World Cup 2014 was a major disappointment for African teams like Ghana, who failed to reach the knockout stages after finishing bottom of the group. Read more »

Brazil managed to make it eight successive victories

Brazil managed to make it eight successive victories after a 1-0 win over Chile in a friendly match.

This victory came days after the stunning 3-1 win over France. This appears to have confirmed that the national team are completely over the disappointing exit at the 2014 home World Cup. A number of aspects have changed since that fateful 7-1 thrashing at the hands of Germany in the semifinals. The arrival of Dunga back to the hot seat appears to have given the team a lot of confidence and it is clearly evident from the way we have been playing in these friendly matches.

Dunga admits that it will be difficult to forget what happened against Germany, but he clearly sees positive signs from his players after this victory. Brazil will undoubtedly be favourites for the upcoming Copa America. A victory in this tournament will go a long way towards not only cementing Brazil’s position in South America, but also across the world. The fame of the national team has reduced somewhat after their failure to lift yet another World Cup title. Brazil have not won the World Cup since the 2002 success in Asia. Brazil still have two more friendlies before the start of the Copa America. Read more »

Brazil spent around 14 billion in New Stadiums

Brazil spent around 14 billion in order build new stadiums as well as they had to renovate 7 of their own stadiums in order for the 2014 World Cup to take place in the South American country. However, ever since that international competition ended it has been very difficult to attract big crowds to those stadiums on a consistent basis.

A few of the cities on where the stadiums where built have decided to hand over those stadiums to private companies because they simply can’t afford to maintain them at a high quality standard.

It’s a disappointment seeing a nation that lives and breathes the sport not being able to keep hold some of their stadiums due to those places not having first division football teams or anything of that nature. Read more »

Solskjaer feel Rooney to be Biggest Players in English Football

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thinks that his former teammate and one of the biggest superstars in English football Wayne Rooney is better off playing as a midfielder.

According to Solskjaer, seeing Rooney play in the last few games, one can say that the 29-year old can help his team more playing deep than playing right up front.

Rooney was the first scorer for the Red Devils the other night when they took on Liverpool on their home pitch.

Later on, two more goals got scored by United and they eventually won by 3-0.

By virtue of the three points that United got in that game there, they are now at the third position in the Premier League table, 5 points behind Manchester City and 8 points behind Chelsea.

It was United’s 6th win on the trot. After losing 0-1 to the local rivals City, they have not looked behind and have got better of teams like Arsenal, Southampton and then, Liverpool.

Obviously, a lot of work is still to be done for United to be able to take over City in the table. It requires mammoth effort actually, but, from where they were at the start of the season to reach where they are now; it’s already a heck of an effort by the 20-time champions.

And, Rooney, the captain, has obviously done his bit in this turnaround of the team, playing in a new role, deeper than what he used to do and flourishing.

When Solskjaer was asked about Rooney after the Liverpool game, the 41-year old Norwegian said, “Wayne has been slotted to a position which he is best suited to at the moment and he is doing a great job there. He is just getting better and better in the midfield.”
