Top 10 Moments in Football History

10. Luis Figo, a world famous football star, who played for FC Barcelona from 1995 till 2000. He was arguably the fans’ most favorite player in FC Barcelona, until 2000. That’s when “it” happened, Barcelona’s biggest rivals, Real Madrid, decided to splash the cash and break the transfer list fees record by getting Luis to Real Madrid.

The move caused outrage among Barcelona fans, Madrid got him for a world record fee of 38 Million Pounds. And that’s when the fun begins, during the match between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, when Luis Figo stepped up to take the corner kick, a pig’s head was thrown at him from Barcelona’s side. Another incident took place during the 2004 EURO Cup Final between Greece and Portugal. A Portuguese fan ran out on the field, managed to outrun the police, and heading towards Luis threw a Barcelona jersey at him, as the whole world was watching.

 

9. 1996 – African Challenge.

1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, The most surprising gold medals went to the hands of Nigerian football stars after they overcame Brazil in thrilling semi-finals, with a 4-3 score. The finals was between Argentina and Nigeria, well over 2 billion people were watching it, of course most of them thought that Argentina will have no problems getting the gold medal, but most of them were wrong. Argentina was in the driver’s seat after leading 1-0. The goal came on a 3rd minute, scored by Claudio Lopez, on the 28th minute Nigeria managed to equalize, as Babayaro scored a perfect finisher. So it was 1-1 on half-time. In the early second half Hernan Crespo gave Argentina the lead again and Argentina was on the way to get the gold medals, but “not so fast” said Amokachi as he scored the equalizing goal and again gave Nigeria hope. Match was almost over and everybody thought it was going to be decided by the penalty shoot out. 90th minute and Amunike gave the lead to Nigeria, it was a shock for Argentina, time was almost over, Argentina had no chance, so it ended with a final score 3-2. Nigeria won the gold medal, for the first time in Olympic Games history.

 

8. 1960, First ever UEFA European Football Championship (EURO) held in France. It was won by the USSR, beating Yugoslavia 2-1 in a tense final in Paris. It is however quite interesting to note that earlier in the competition Spain had withdrawn from its quarterfinal match against the USSR due to political reasons. As an interesting fact, USSR also scored the first goal in the EURO history, during the qualification games.

 

7. 1998/1999 English Premier League season, Manchester United got all trophies possible that season. They became the first ever team in football history to do so in one season. First they got the Premier League title, finishing first in the league table, then they took the F.A. Cup title by beating Newcastle United 2-0, and of course the most famous UEFA Champions League final, when United managed to come back from a 1-0 defeat, and score not one but two goals in an injury time beating Bayern Munich 2-1; it was considered to be one of the greatest comebacks ever witnessed.

 

6. 2002 World Cup, Korea/Japan. Korean fans will never forget that historic moment, when Guus Hiddink took them all the way to the Semi-Finals of 2002 World Cup. Korean national football team became the first ever Asian national football team to reach semi-finals of World Cup. Nobody expected the underdogs to go that far, as they beat Portugal 1-0 in a group stages, then a famous 2-1 win over Italy, drawing with Spain in a quarter-finals and then beating them 5-3 on penalties. In the end however they couldn’t take on Germany in semi-finals, and they lost 1-0. In the game for the third place Korean team met Turkey, but again they lost. Eventually the Republic of Korea finished 4th in the 2002 World Cup, which was still a great success for the country’s football team.

 

5. June 2003, Chelsea FC was bought by the Russian Billionaire Roman Abramovich for a record fee of 140 million pounds. Back then it was the biggest sale of an English Football club. Straight away Roman wanted to make Chelsea the best and strongest club in the world. He began buying players for a record braking transfer fees. First season with a new owner Chelsea FC finished as a runner-up. But next year, the 2004/2005 English premier league season, Chelsea became champions of England, for the first time since 1954/1955 season. 2005/2006 Season they took the premier league trophy again as they were crowned the champions of England for the second time in a row. These 2 seasons were the most successful 2 years in the club’s history.

 

4. January 11th 2007. It was confirmed that David Beckham will be leaving Real Madrid to play for the United States “soccer” club, Los Angeles Galaxy. Beckham’s decision was a shock to many, as one of the world’s best football players moves to United States of America, where “soccer” is not that popular. He was the first big player to enter Major League Soccer.

 

3. 6th February 1958, the Munich air disaster. It was the darkest day in Manchester United Football Club history. On the board of the plane was Manchester United football team along with the club supporters and journalists. 23 of the 44 passengers on board died. Captain James Thain, the pilot tried to take off twice, but both attempts were aborted due to engine surging. When a third take off was attempted, the plane failed to gain adequate height and crashed into the fence surrounding the airport and then into a house. Now every year on this day Manchester United holds a memorial to the people who lost their lives in the Munich air disaster.

 

2. 2006 World Cup Final produced one of the most famous moments in football history, when Zidane’s head-butted on Italian defender Marco Materazzi. It was Zidane’s last international appearance for the French national team and 3 billion people around the world were watching it. The next day newspapers all over the world were not writing about how Italy won their 4th World Cup title, but they were writing about how Zidane pulled the “stunt” on Marco. Definitely that was one of the biggest moments in the history of football.

 

1. Edison Arantes do Nascimento, aka Pele, the world’s most famous name in football. Football is probably the most famous sport in the world, and Pele is the man who made it what it is today. Pele made 669 appearances in club football, scoring 626 goals. He also made 92 appearances for Brazilian National football side and scored 77 goals. He made his first club appearance when he was just 15 years of age. He made his first international appearance for Brazil when he was 16, and won his first World Cup when he was just 17. Pele is hailed in Brazil as a national hero. The number one moment in football history is when Pele managed to score his first international goal for Brazil, just three month before his 17th birthday.

The Amero: Should the US support a North American

I have to admit, this is the first time I’ve heard of this concept. I don’t know many of the details but I disagree that this ‘Amero’ could benefit North America. In 2004 I studied in Barcelona, Spain for about 6 months. I stayed with a host-mother the entire time and though the language barrier made it difficult for us to have in-depth conversations (I didn’t learn very much Spanish while I was there), we did discuss the Euro and how Spain was affected by it. I think it was brought up by a sad attempt of me asking her why she took in ‘host children’. She told me that since the Euro was worth much more than their previous form of currency, and no inflation occured after the switch, she needed another form of income to pay the rent of her apartment other than her full time job. Even so, as a tourist, I loved the idea of never having to worry about exchanging my cash when I traveled to other countries. But Europe is quite a bit differnt than North America. First off, there’s a form of transportation in Europe that literally connects almost every country. Secondly, the distance between each country is considerably smaller. If a European visits northern Canada, would they then spend however many hours it would take to travel to the US? And then to Mexico? I lived in Pennsylvania my entire life and only once traveled to Canada. I had no trouble with money because I used my check card to get cash or pay for meals. The same goes for my one and only trip to Mexico. If the main benefit of making an Amero that can be used anywhere in North America is convenience, then it doesn’t seem necessary to me.

Holiday-makers Should be Cautious When Hiring a Car Abroad

With the tourist season at its peak, holiday-makers should be wary when collecting a car at their destination and only book with certified car rental companies. People planning on hiring a car abroad are advised to be careful when dealing with local car operators as it could be too much risk for a tourist expecting a relaxing vacation.

According to rumours, cheaper rates are available locally, however this will only be valid in low-season or if the local company has incorrectly calculated its inventory. In high-season it will be almost impossible to rent a car, especially in the large coastal resorts and popular destinations such as Barcelona, Alicante and Mallorca.

It’s important to be cautious of local car rental firms that offer large discounts. This could be a gamble and ruin your vacation:

- Choices of cars are limited

- Cars are often older models that may not be well maintained

- It’s unlikely that there will be a helpline if anything goes wrong

- If there is a legal problem there will be limited support or advice

- If the car breaks down or is involved in an accident then a replacement is unlikely

- Some local car rental companies have limited legal terms and require trust from both parties – only advised for the experienced

Travellers should also be aware that local dealers will often drive customers to collect the car from their personal garage. This can disorientate inexperienced tourists in a foreign country, and could be dangerous for women.

It’s recommended that all tourists book cars in advance in order to get availability and to be sure that the service is being provided by a certified company.

Getting To Torrevieja From Alicante

Alicante, Spain is one of the most popular destinations for travelers to the Costa Blanca region. It is situated along the beautiful coast of the Mediterranean Sea in southern Spain with the cities of Benidorm to its north and Torrevieja to its south. Whether you are visiting for business or pleasure, traveling to Alicante should not be difficult.

The best way to reach Alicante is by air and, fortunately, it has its own airport. The El Altet International Airport is only six miles from downtown Alicante. In addition to flights from various foreign countries, there are also daily flights from other cities in Spain such as Madrid and Barcelona. Once you are at the airport, there is transportation available to help you reach your final destination in the city. If you are looking for a train, though, you should know that there is no train connection at the airport. But, considering the airport is only six miles from downtown, you can use one of the many taxis outside of the airport, the bus or a car hire company. Be sure to make an advance reservation for car hire services, as they will pick you up from the airport.

If not flying directly into the Alicante airport, you may also reach Alicante city limits by train or bus. The train system known as the tram and trenet can also take you to some of the smaller surrounding towns, including as Denia, Altea and Benidorm. Motor buses service the outlying areas to connect Alicante to the smaller towns. There is also a ferry from Algeria which will bring you into the city of Alicante. You can book the ferry through Romeu to Oran or Alegeria. Though this may be an interesting experience, it is not the most reliable method of reaching Alicante due to the potential for service interruptions at any given time.

Once you are inside the city limits of Alicante, you will find that walking is a sufficient way to get around the city due to its small size. However, taxis and the bus are available as well as car hire services if you prefer. Travelers requiring an overnight stay should have no difficulty finding appropriate accommodations. There are many hotels in the business district offering views of both the mountains on the west and the sea on the east. You can also find resorts along the beach, which are also close to the city.

Best cities to visit in Europe – Part 3

PRAGUE, is without doubt the most amazing City I have ever been to.

During the last 4 years, I have been to Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Amsterdam and Athens, but Prague has that WOW factor around ever corner.

The best time to see the City is early in the morning, before the hoardes hit the streets, with their cameras. I mean early too, we went out with our cameras at 6:30.

We stayed close to Wenceslas Square, which is just a stone’s throw from the Stare Mesto, the old town. It is here that you will find the wonderful astrological clock, the old town square with it’s bar’s and restaurant’s. As I said go early if you don’t want photograph’s of other people’s head’s.

Cross the river on Charles Bridge, leading you into the area known as Mala Strana, which translates into ‘lesser quarter’. Then climb up the hill to Hradcany. It is here where you will be swept off your feet with buildings around the castle and St Vitis cathedral. The parliament buildings and embassies are on a scale of grandeur second to none that I ever seen.

Prague has a growing reputation for stag and hen parties,(bachelor parties) but we didn’t see too much of that. The reason for this is the cheap price of beer and food. The first bar we wandered into was out of the way, but, with a pint of ‘Svelte Bernerd’ at 22 crowns, about 55 english pence, it was a great place to start.

If you go you must try the bread dumplings and potato dumplings, mmmmm!

Because of the stag and hen parties, you will not struggle to find people who speak English. We found the locals pleasant, even the local hookers offered us breakfast with their usual offers. Of course we declined their offers of both. Or at least that’s what the wife thinks.

Again, if you choose to go, don’t do what we did and decide to go and visit the Jewish quarter on a Saturday. Not the best day of the week.

The price of flights to the Czech Republic from the UK is getting cheaper each year so please give this beautiful City a visit, you will not regret it and you will have memories and photographs to treasure for ever.

A Iga Arcelona Beats Eal Adrid 2 0 In Lasico

The current leader of the standings Barcelona defeated Real Madrid 2-0 with late goals this Saturday in El Clsico, the biggest rivalry in Spain, having been played 157 times, with Real Madrid leading with 68 victories against 59 from Barcelona and 30 draws. Last Saturday Barcelona was looking for revenge since Real Madrid had won the last two Clsicos at home and away, so this game was really important for Bara, mostly with the great moment they are having.

The game was a constant battle between the two teams. Real Madrid had a great tactical game especially in their defense, but even with their big effort to stop Barcelona in the offense; two mistakes at the end of the game gave Bara the victory.

On the other hand, Barcelona had their difficulties in the game, but their consistency and determination of looking for the victory gave them the positive result. With this triumph Barcelona added a total of 38 points in the top position, 8 points ahead of the second place Valencia and 12 points ahead from Real Madrid. Also this is Barcelonas 12th victory in La Liga and one of the most important wins of this first part of the season for them.

At the beginning of the game, the Cules had several opportunities to open the score, but the great defense of Carnavaro, Metzelder and the excellent contribution of Iker Casillas, gave balance to Real Madrids defense. Real Madrid for its part had a clear option of goal with Wesley Sneijder but his shot was saved by the Baras goalkeeper Victor Valds. Later, Royston Drenthe had a very good chance but he failed to open the score for the Meringues because Valds made another great save.

Moreover, even though Barcelona was struggling in the first half, the team didnt lost their fighting mentality and at only 20 minutes to go, Busquets was fouled in the area by Salgado, which gave a penalty to Barcelona. Etoo executed the penalty but Casillas saved it in great way. Nevertheless, just 13 minutes later, Etoo took revenge and scored for Barcelona to put things 1-0. Real Madrid, desperate looking for a goal to tie the game, gave an option to Barcelona at minute 90 with a play between Henry and Messi, who scored the second and final goal for Barcelona.

Despite Real Madrids loss, the new coach of the Meringues Juande Ramos, was pleased with his teams effort and expressed he couldnt demand anything more from his players. On the other hand, the Barcelonas youngest coach Pep Guardiola, alleged that even with his team struggling during different parts of the game, his players never lost their objective of getting the victory and kept fighting until the end. Guardiola also expressed that even with this important triumph there is a long way to go to achieve the title but his team is working hard by focusing in every game and every opponent.

“Only 15 games have been played and there are a lot of other (teams) around us to play, like Villarreal and Valencia, among others. In January, we return to play in three competitions and that will take a lot out of the side,” said the young coach of Barcelona.

The next game of Barcelona will be against Villareal, who is in the fourth place with 29 points and is coming from a loss against Sevilla 1-0. With this past result, Villareal is expecting to get the victory against the undefeated Barcelona to add more points and climb in the table. Barcelona, on the other hand, will try to keep its winning pace and extend its advantage in the top spot. The game will be held at Villareal on December 21st.

For its part, Real Madrid will play against Valencia, which will be a tough game for them since Valencia is in second place and is expecting to add more points to get closer to Barcelona in the standings. We hope the best for these teams during this La Liga weekend.

When in Rome Visit the Film Festival

While Rome, affectionately referred to as la Città Eterna (“the Eternal City”), is often visited due to its rich history, its stunning architecture or renowned cuisine, later this month from the 18th to the 27th of October, visitors can experience the Rome Film Festival. Although it is only in its second year, it has attracted a high number of private sponsors, and the City Council of Rome, in the name of the Mayor and film-buff Walter Veltroni, the Province of Rome and the Lazio Region all strongly support it both in terms of institutional communication and economic investment.

The actual title of the festival in Italian is Festa, which could be translated as feast, not festival, and is apt, since it is more a celebration of the joy of cinema than a regular film festival. Indeed, though the Rome Film Festival’s jury includes a renowned director as its president, last year Ettore Scola, the rest of the 50 jurors are not film professionals but are, in fact, regular moviegoers selected both in Italy and Europe.

Although it enjoys fierce rivalry with the Venice Film Festival, The Rome Film Festival has attracted its own audience and this year will host the world premiere of 11 new films. Among the most exciting is ‘Youth Without Youth’ – Francis Ford Coppola’s first feature film in a decade. The film is about a timid Romanian professor who becomes young again after being hit by lightning. The five-time Oscar-winning director wrote the film based on a novella by Romanian philosopher-author Mircea Eliade and has been described as his “third renaissance” after ‘Apocalypse Now’ and ‘The Godfather’.

Coppola’s film appears out of competition, along with a number of American films exploring the political climate post 9/11. These include Robert Redford’s ‘Lions for Lambs’ and Gavin Hood’s ‘Rendition’. ‘Lions for Lambs’ stars Tom Cruise and Meryl Streep and tells the story of two soldiers wounded behind enemy lines in Afghanistan and the repercussions back home. ‘Rendition’ is about an American woman trying to track down her Egyptian-born husband, who is held at a secret CIA detention centre. It also stars Meryl Streep, as well as Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon.

The 14 movies in competition for the top Marcus Aurelius award for Best Film include ‘El Pasado’ (The Past), with Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal, ‘Li Chun’ (translated as ‘And the Spring Comes’) from China’s Chang Wei Gu, ‘Barcelona (un mapa)’ (translated as ‘Barcelona, a Map’) by Spain’s Ventura Pons and Alain Corneau’s ‘La Deuxieme Souffle’ (translated as ‘Second Wind’), starring Monica Bellucci and Daniel Auteuil. Separate awards for Best Actress and Best Actor, as well as a special jury prize, will also be handed out.

In addition to the more mainstream fare, the festival also boasts dedicated sections for alternative productions and documentaries, children films, first films by new directors and the craft of acting.

Visitors wishing to experience the Rome Film Festival can take advantage of cheap flights to Rome’s two main international airports, Leonardo da Vinci International Airport, more commonly known as “Fiumicino airport”, and Ciampino International Airport. From either airport travellers can catch a train or bus or arrange private transfer to get to their final destination with ease. Hotels in Rome can be booked online in advance, which is recommended, especially due to the popularity of the festival. Last year’s inaugural edition attracted half-a-million visitors and this year is looking to top that.

Getting A Job In Spain

If you have visited Spain, you may have fallen in love with the Spanish culture and now you want to live there. But first you will have to find a job in Spain, and that may not be easy to do. Using these guidelines will help. You will have greater opportunities if you look in a large city, and of course, some occupations are easier to find a job in.

First you will have to decide where you want to find a job. In a large city such as Madrid or Barcelona, you will find more opportunities; there are opportunities in small towns, but not as many. If you can’t afford to wait to find your job, a big city is your best bet. If you have visited a few cities already, you know which ones you prefer to live in.

Allow yourself some time to shop around. Getting a job in Spain will not be easy, so you can’t rush into it. Just as in other parts of the world, you can shop for jobs on the Internet, and you can also find out qualifications for the types of jobs that are available.

Therefore, you may have to have some funds to live in Spain for a while before you land that job. Being right there will help in a number of ways: you have a local address on your resume, you can easily go for interviews, and you can ask around with friends and neighbors about job openings. Make sure you have a cell phone so you have a way to be contacted. Put this number, as well as other relevant contact information such as you email address, on your resume.

There are going to be some legal and paperwork requirements for working in Spain, but these will depend on your country of origin. It is a lot easier for a citizen of EU countries to get a job in another EU country. If you live outside of the European Union, you will have to obtain a special work permit. The type of work permit will also depend upon the length of time you plan on working in Spain, and the type of work you plan on doing. To find out what permit you need, contact the Spanish consulate in your home country.

Getting all of this paperwork together can take time, so don’t wait until the last minute to handle it. If you have a job offer and then you have to start on the paperwork, the job may no longer be there by the time you are finished. In addition, there are some employers who want to see the paperwork before you will even be considered for the job.

One pretty important qualification for a job in Spain is the ability to speak Spanish. Even if you are considering a job where you won’t have a lot of contact with people, you will have to have a rudimentary knowledge to conduct an interview. Obviously, the more fluent you are, the better your chances of landing a job will be.

Alcudia: Great for Walking and Driving Holidays

If you’re thinking of taking a holiday to Majorca, you’re likely imagining large crowds of tourists soaking up the sun during the day and partying the night away in the island’s best clubs. However, choose instead to visit Majorca’s northern town of Alcudia and you’ll experience a Majorca that’s a world away from the hectic resorts of the south. Its sparkling sea and historic town centre provide tourists with a range of delights – whether you choose to spend your time walking around the peaceful streets of Alcudia or exploring its surrounding areas in a rented car.

Alcudia boasts a six-mile long coast, and its crystal clear waters and stunning sandy beaches mean that sunbathing is naturally a popular pastime for holidaymakers in the town. However, many visitors to Alcudia choose to spend their time walking through its historic old town. The narrow streets of Alcudia’s inner-walled town are serene and tranquil and its pedestrianized areas are home to some beautiful squares in which you’ll be able to find places to eat and drink. Alcudia’s old town also plays host to a market every week, so you’ll be able to pick up a few bargains on your travels as well.

Alternatively, take a walk down to the Port D’alcduia, from which you’ll be able to take boat trips around parts of the island and catch daily ferries to Menorca and Barcelona. Here, holidaymakers will also be able to find some high quality shops in which to buy local porcelain, jewellery and other items. What’s more, you’ll be able to find secluded coves north of Alcudia’s town walls that provide perfect opportunities for snorkelling or sunbathing away from the beaten track.

If you’re keen to hire a car in Alcudia, you’ll be able to explore the town’s surrounding areas with ease. For instance, take the ten minute drive south along Alcudia’s beach and into Playa de Muro, where you’ll be able to visit S’Albufera. S’Albufera is a nature reserve that is popular with bird-spotters, and can provide some much-needed relaxation from the busier beaches of the town. You’ll also be able to drive to the Roman town of Pollentia, which lies just outside the town walls, and visit the smallest Roman Amphitheatre in Spain.

So whether you decide to spend your holiday in Alcudia walking along its peaceful historic streets or driving along its breathtaking coastal spots, you can rest assured that this town will provide you with a Majorcan holiday experience that’s a world away from the hustle and bustle of the south!
