Makaay: Messi the best so far | World Cup 2010

    Roy Makaay rates as one of European football’s most prolific strikers of recent times, with a total of 256 goals in Spain’s La Liga, the Bundesliga in Germany and the Dutch Eredivisie. He reached a personal zenith in 2003, when he claimed the Golden Shoe as the continent’s leading scorer with 29 goals in the Spanish top flight. At the end of last term, Makaay brought down the curtain on his illustrious career, which for all his success at club level, never included a run-out at the FIFA World Cup™.

    In the build-up to the quarter-finals in South Africa, FIFA.com spoke to the 35-year-old about his impressions of the tournament so far, the best forwards at the finals, and who he is backing to win the trophy.

    FIFA.com: Roy, you’re certain to be following the action at the FIFA World Cup, but where from?
    Roy Makaay:
    At the moment, I’m watching the matches at a theme park in Germany, where I’m taking a few days’ vacation with my family. From the quarter-finals onwards, I’ll be watching at home in the Netherlands.

    What’s your assessment of the tournament so far?
    The tournament’s not really caught fire yet. We’ve had a couple of terrific games, but quite a few poor ones too. But I think it’s beginning to change now we’re in the knockout stages, and the games will be increasingly attractive.

Elano's a miss for Brazil | World Cup 2010

    Brazil, news, matches, Elano's a miss for Brazil | World Cup 2010

    Brazil will be without Elano for Friday's FIFA World Cup™ quarter-final against the Netherlands.

    The team's medical staff said the former Manchester City midfielder has not recovered from an ankle injury and could be out for the rest of the tournament.

    Elano, 29, suffered the injury in a challenge by Côte d'Ivoire defender Cheik Tiote in Brazil's 3-1 win and limped out of a training session yesterday.

    Brazil's team doctor Jose Luiz Runco told reporters: "I'm not saying that he won't be able to play again at this World Cup but he won't be ready for Friday.

    "He has bad bruising and it was after he trained on Sunday that he said that he was having problems.

    "The bone is swollen and we have to release the pressure on it so he will do nothing strenuous for the rest of the week."

    "We still hope he can play next week but I can't say that he will be able to categorically."

Diego GODIN | Uruguay

    Uruguay,  player,  Profile, Diego GODIN | Uruguay
    • Date of Birth: 16 February 1986
    • Height: 185 cm
    • Shirt number: 3
    • Position: Defender
    • Current club: Villarreal (ESP)
    • International Caps: 41
    • International Goals: 3
    • First international: Mexico - Uruguay
      (26 October 2005)

    Club History

    • Nacional (URU): From 2006 to 2007
    • Cerro Porteño (PAR): From 2003 to 2006

    Diego Godin is a composed and dependable central defender who is just as adept at snuffing out danger in the air as he is on the ground. His ability to make covering tackles is another feature of his game, and it was qualities such as those that made him an obvious choice to partner Diego Lugano at the heart of the Uruguayan defence throughout the recent South Africa 2010 qualifiers.

    Godin’s long journey to becoming one half of one of the most formidable central-defensive duos in South America started when he gave up swimming at the age of 14 and turned his attention to football instead. Starting out in the youth team at Estudiantes of Rosario, the city of his birth, he continued his education in the junior ranks at Defensor Sporting before moving to Club Atletico Cerro in 2003, the year in which he played his first game in the top flight.

    A commanding and reliable presence in the Albiceleste defence, Godin was quickly on his way to Nacional, helping them to victory in the 2007 Copa Libertadores play-off league and scoring two goals on their run to the quarter-finals of the Libertadores that same year.

    His next move was to Spain and Villarreal, where he took his time to settle down before becoming a mainstay of the side, shining on both the domestic and European stage.

    Jorge Fossati gave him his full international debut in a 2005 friendly defeat to Mexico, though it was after Fossati’s departure that Godin’s Uruguay career really began to take off. Oscar Tabarez identified him as a tried and trusted performer from the start, regularly selecting him for friendlies in 2006 and taking him to Venezuela for the 2007 Copa America, although he would only start one game there.

    He left the bench behind at the beginning of the CONMEBOL qualifying competition for South Africa 2010, establishing himself as a first-choice in the side except when injury or suspension intervened.

Jorge FUCILE | Uruguay

    • Date of Birth: 19 November 1984
    • Height: 177 cm
    • Shirt number: 4
    • Position: Defender
    • Current club: Porto (POR)
    • International Caps: 27
    • International Goals: 0
    • First international: Romania - Uruguay
      (23 May 2006)

    Club History

    • Liverpool (URU): From 2003 to 2006

    rge Fucile’s qualities as a full back are obvious: he is a tight marker, has great ball control and loves to attack from deep. Add to that an ability to play on either side of the defence and you have a player of real quality.

    A native of Montevideo, Fucile was barely 17 when he made his Uruguayan Second Division debut in 2002 for local outfit Liverpool FC. The following year saw his team gain promotion to the First Division where they even battled it out for the Uruguayan title, and over the next few seasons the team cemented their status in the top flight.

    His reliability and commitment earned him an international call-up in May 2006. Just two months after taking the reins as head coach, El Maestro handed him his first cap in a 2-0 victory over Romania in a friendly match in Los Angeles.

    By this time, Fucile was on the wish-list of a number of European clubs, so it came as little surprise when he signed for Porto in the summer of 2006. He quickly adapted to the Portuguese game, earning a starting place and crowning his arrival in Europe with his first league title in the 2006/2007 season.

    Despite him turning out on the right side of defence for his club, Oscar Tabarez deployed Fucile on the left during the Copa America Venezuela 2007. He played the first four games of the tournament in this new role and proved himself more than up to the task, winning player of the tournament in his position. In 2008, however, he started to revert back to his original position on the right. Although missing out on the play-off win over Costa Rica due to injury, he still features strongly in Tabarez’s plans, and can be hopeful of getting the chance to prove his worth in South Africa.

    • Current club: Napoli (ITA)

    • First international: Libya - Uruguay
      (30 May 2006)

    Club History

    • Danubio (URU): From 2004 to 2007

    What centre-half Walter Gargano might lack in stature, he more than makes up for with his insatiable appetite for hard work, his ability to time tackles and his ease on the ball. Capable of making the hard things look easy, Gargano is as reliable as they come.

    Yet another product of the Danubio youth academy, the polished central defender played his first top-flight game for La Franja in 2003, going on to win the 2004 and 2006/07 league championships. That second triumph provided a springboard to Europe, where he joined Napoli, quickly becoming a valued member of the side.

    Affectionately known as Mota, he has been a regular feature of the Uruguay side since he was first called up by Oscar Tabarez for the 2-1 friendly win over Libya in Tunis in May 2006.

    A member of the squad that travelled to Venezuela for the 2007 Copa America, he came on as a substitute in three of Uruguay’s six games, sitting out the other three. But after watching the first two of his country’s South Africa 2010 qualifying matches, he was handed a starting place for their third game, remaining in the team until he was sidelined with injury in early 2009.

    He eventually made his return in September, in time for the last four games in the group, although a further knock kept him out of the play-off against Costa Rica. Fitness permitting, he seems assured of a start in Uruguay’s opening game against France.

Spain reign as fullbacks climb | World Cup 2010

    Spain, player, newsSpain reign as fullbacks climb | World Cup 2010

    South American sides have turned 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ into a demonstration of their own particular talents with the most impressive team performances up to now and all underlined by the dominance of their individual players in the Castrol Index. However Europe has begun to erode some of the ground claimed by the CONMEBOL nations early on and that is perfectly illustrated by the presence of Spain's two fullbacks at the head of the latest ratings.

    Joan Capdevila has blossomed since joining Villarreal in 2007 and he was a mainstay of the team that lifted the UEFA EURO crown two years ago. In South Africa he has performed impressively in a team that has worked overtime to put the disappointment of their opening-game defeat by Switzerland to bed and deliver three much-improved subsequent performances in which they have conceded just one goal - to Chile - while marching on towards a last eight duel with Paraguay.

    Often deployed as a left-midfielder earlier in his career, Capdevila's ability to attack effectively and send over accurate crosses has also helped him to score highly in the Castrol Iindex, an innovative system which uses the latest technology to objectively analyse and rank player performances and which is being used at the FIFA World Cup for the first time.

    Ramos raider
    Sergio Ramos is just as adventurous down the right, and La Roja's two raiding full-backs have had a large say in Spain's supremacy - by some distance - as the team delivering most crosses in the tournament. A total of 106 crosses were executed in their four games, which was 28 more than their closest rivals in that category, Germany. Spanish defenders have only conceded nine shots on target and two goals in four games, while Capdevila (81%) and Ramos (79%) also have above-average passing success rates for defenders.

    Defenders fill the first five Castrol Index positions with the long-time leaders, Chile duo Gary Medel and Waldo Ponce, losing their pre-eminent positions after suspension ruled both out of their Round of 16 defeat to Brazil. However they have not been the only South American defenders to enhance that continent's fine reputation, with Paraguay's Antolin Alcaraz in third place and Argentina's Martin Demichelis fifth.

    Alcaraz's ratings in each game have been high and remarkably consistent and he scored well again on Tuesday as Paraguay squeezed past Japan via a penalty shoot-out to earn a place in the quarter-finals, the first time they have advanced so far at a FIFA World Cup. The 27-year-old has made the fourth most clearances (10) of those players still in the competition.

    Dividing the two CONMEBOL representatives is Philipp Lahm, who has demonstrated with a series of influential displays just why Germany coach Joachim Low turned to the Bayern Munich defender for his new captain when Michael Ballack dropped out through injury. Both Lahm and Demichelis are defenders who contribute in attack as well and their passing success rates (Lahm 82% and Demichelis 86%) are above-average for players at the back.

    Gerrard on the move
    Steven Gerrard and Juan also made big moves to put themselves in the top seven positions. Juan scored Brazil's opening goal against Chile on Monday while playing a full part in helping keep a clean sheet at the other end - Brazil's second in successive games. Like Uruguay, Brazil have only allowed opponents 12 shots on target.

    England have had a campaign to forget but in Gerrard they had a player who need not reproach himself for their disappointing demise. He scored highly in Sunday's defeat by Germany, with Castrol Performance Analysts noting the crucial block he made on Miroslav Klose with the score at 2-1. In an attacking sense he was also influential and had a total of six shots in the game as he tried to haul England back into contention.

    FIFA.com will be publishing the latest Castrol Index after every round of matches here at South Africa 2009, and in the meantime you can read more statistical analysis and delve deeper into this unique ranking system by following the links on the right.

    Any questions on the Castrol Index? Anything you don't understand or puzzling you? Just click 'Add your comment' and we'll do our best to answer them here on FIFA.com over the coming days.

Paraguay boss desperate for goals | World Cup 2010

    Paraguay, player, newsParaguay boss desperate for goals | World Cup 2010

    Paraguay face Spain in the FIFA World Cup™ quarter-finals on Saturday in desperate need of goals, having scored just three times through four matches.

    All three of coach Gerardo Martino's favoured forwards play for top line clubs. Veteran Roque Santa Cruz is at English Premier League side Manchester City, while Lucas Barrios and Nelson Valdez are both at Bundesliga heavyweights Borussia Dortmund. But not one of Paraguay's meagre three goals has come from any of them.

    Martino, who has guided the defensively rock solid South Americans to their first ever quarter-finals thanks to a penalty shoot-out win over Japan, came to South Africa in the knowledge that finding the back of the net would be tough. Salvador Cabanas, his top scorer from the qualifying stage, was shot in the head in a Mexican bar in January and is still recovering at home.

    All the same, Martino would have been looking for a quick return on his faith in selecting Argentina-born Barrios, who qualified to play through his Paraguay-born mother, as he scored an impressive 19 goals in the Bundesliga. Yet, Barrios and his fellow strikers have found it impossible to unlock the defences of New Zealand, Italy, Slovakia and Japan but Martino, also Argentinian, refuses to lay the blame totally at their door.

    "One mustn't be too hard on our strikers," said 47-year-old. "If they aren't scoring well maybe it's because the balls aren't arriving fast enough to them."

    Martino also believes opposing teams have been negative in their approach. "I hope that our next opponent will allow us to play differently and it won't be simply down to us to dictate the game," he said. "Against Spain, we should have more space, because they play to win," added Martino, who has been in charge since February 2007.

    Barrios shrugged off the goal drought by saying the Paraguyan team ethic was not based around the individual. "The important thing is not who scores the goals, but that we formed a united squad which was capable of reaching the quarter-finals for the first time in the history of Paraguay," said Barrios.

We’re all living in Maradona’s World Cup | World Cup 2010

    Argentina, news, player
    Argentina, news, playerWe’re all living in Maradona’s World Cup | World Cup 2010
    JOHANNESBURG – Diego Maradona dominated the World Cup in 1986 like few players ever. Argentina won the event, of course, and Maradona was the awarded the Golden Ball as its best player. That was just a small part of it.

    In a 2-1 quarterfinal victory over hated England, he scored twice in the disparate fashions that perfectly define him.

    There was the “bad” – the illegal, self-described “Hand of God” goal when he purposefully punched the ball in. And there was the “good” – a spectacular, darting 50-yard run that was voted greatest in the history of the World Cup and hailed by many as the “Goal of the Century.”

    And that was just one game.

    In front of the media he was controversial and colorful and charismatic. He never backed down. He backed everything up. There was simply nothing like him.

    In Argentina, some say, there is Eva Peron (“Evita”) and there is Maradona. He is some kind of Michael Jordan-Abraham Lincoln hybrid in his homeland’s history.

    And now he’s back – nine lives, four World Cups, one friendship with Fidel Castro, a coke addiction (with multiple relapses), 100 pounds up and down (stomach stapled), a television career and who knows what else later.

    It’s 1986 all over again. And while Maradona is wearing a gray suit and standing in the Argentine coaching box, not weaving through defenders, this World Cup is shaping up like that old one – all about Diego.

    “I feel like I am putting on the jersey and going out on the pitch,” he said. “It’s beautiful. It’s beautiful indeed.”

    His Argentinean team blasted through Mexico 3-1 on Sunday to set up a quarterfinal matchup Saturday against Germany, the 1986 runner-up (then just West Germany). It was a show of not just force but of spectacular ability – Carlos Tevez’s blast in the 52nd minute may be the prettiest goal of the event. Maradona’s team is playing brilliantly.

    “They are doing the things perfectly well,” he said after.

    Throughout it all, Maradona acted like Maradona, an over-caffeinated presence on the sideline and a stand-up comic in the press conference. He screams and cheers. He complains and cajoles. He smiles. He prays. He blesses himself. He hugs. Actually, he hugs a lot. He even kisses his players.

    Pushing 50 yet wearing earrings and a salt-and-pepper goatee, he remains the biggest presence in the building – and that includes his megastar players such as Lionel Messi and Tevez.

    “Victory always feels great,” Maradona said. “As a coach, as a player, there is not a major difference.”

    As always it’s not what Maradona has done – getting his team to play as well as anyone. It’s how he’s done it.


    He had no managerial experience when he got Argentina’s national team job in 2008. The man had been a wreck since his playing days (and even during them). He battled multiple addictions. He ate and ate. He had health issues, family issues, authority issues. He was distracted by politics.

    Needless to say, organization was never a personal strong point.

    So when he got the job, many in the media ridiculed the decision. When the team looked a mess during qualifying (Maradona used nearly 100 different players) they hit even harder. Diego Maradona as a coach? Diego Maradona as the calming influence on a team with so much talent and potential?

    “Many journalists should apologize to the players,” he said last week, as Argentina rolled through group play. “I’m not suggesting you drop your trousers, but it would be honest and great so we all get along better.”

    Yes, this is Diego Maradona. Don’t think that was his wildest quote of the World Cup, either.

    When former Brazilian star Pele said Maradona was only coaching because he needed the money (which might be true since last year the Italian government claimed he still owed them $37 million euros in back taxes from his playing days there), Maradona couldn’t remain silent. He declared Pele should “go back to the museum.”

    He got into a war of words with Union of European Football Associations president Michel Platini before dismissing Platini as arrogant – “That Platini, well, he’s French, what do you expect?”

    He later apologized by saying, “[Platini] says he has never said what you [reporters] told me he said, so through you I would like to apologize to Mr. Platini … but not to Pele.”

    Sunday’s press conference contained everything from his declaring a question “stupid,” reminiscing about being triple-teamed as a player, lamenting that as a coach he can’t swear on the sideline and asking that the questions (even stupid ones) continue since he was having so much fun talking.

    “Finally I get a chance to speak and he wants to send me off,” he said of the moderator.

    Each FIFA press conference features a game ball stationed next to the microphone. It’s nothing more than a decorative prop. When this session finally ended, Maradona stood up, stared at the ball and promptly scooped it up as walked off.

    There was much laughter; Diego stole FIFA’s ball.


    In the most curious way, all the fears of what Maradona would do and say at the World Cup have come true, yet not as a detriment to his team.

    He’s been outlandish. He’s made this about himself. He’s picked fights and created trouble and made bold decisions that run in the face of fans and media (such as handing over the captainship to Messi, whose loyalty to the national team many fans have questioned due to previous subpar performances for the Albicelestes).

    He has completely overshadowed his players.

    Yet in doing so, he’s allowed his guys to stay out of the spotlight, to just shrug off the antics or their coach and laugh at the situation. Flying under the radar, with all the pressure on Diego Maradona, no one is playing looser, freer or with more confidence than the Argentineans.

    “My relationship with the boys is excellent,” he said.

    Just as when Maradona would make an open-field move that appeared too daring, too selfish and too risky only to find a way to make it brilliant, here he is again.

    He actually may have even matured some. There was a brief, but quickly escalating, skirmish between some players at the end of the first half Sunday. Cursing and hair pulling were part of it. Maradona wasn’t offended by a potential fight. “What’s wrong with that?” he said.

    Then again, he is the coach now so he raced to the middle of it and, quite surprisingly, busted it up. “We separated them before anything else could’ve happened,” he said.

    Maradona the peacemaker?

    We’ve seen it all. Except we’ve seen this act all before. It’s 2010. It’s 1986. It’s the World Cup shaping up to be all about Diego Maradona once again.

Dutch thrive on disharmonic convergence | World Cup 2010

    England, Brazil, newsDutch thrive on disharmonic convergence | World Cup 2010

    JOHANNESBURG – For the most part, the World Cup’s most dysfunctional teams have packed up their egos and gone home, taking their strikes, mutinies and refusals to train with them.

    With the quarterfinals upon us, one fractured squad is still here.

    The Netherlands has charged toward glory despite the fact that its players don’t get along. Rumors and reports of strife in the Dutch camp have been prevalent since the start of the tournament, the disharmony including personality clashes, arguments and general unrest.

    On Wednesday, two days ahead of his team’s showdown with Brazil in the last eight, head coach Bert van Marwijk even made it official, taking the unusual but possibly inspired step of bringing his squad’s issues into the open and admitting his players don’t like each other.

    “Being friendly with each other is not important so it doesn’t concern me,” Van Marwijk said. “Yes, there are some situations. That is the way of it. Some players don’t like each other; it is not important. It doesn’t concern me and it doesn’t concern them.”

    The most public display of angst involved Van Marwijk himself when forward Robin van Persie raged at the coach after being substituted against Slovakia in a 2-1 win in the round of 16. Following that spat Van Marwijk called a team meeting in an attempt to clear the air.

    Dutch squads have regularly suffered with internal strife in the past, a factor that is widely believed to have contributed to the way they often fall apart during the business end of major tournaments.

    At the 1996 European Championships, Edgar Davids was sent home following a rift with other players and negative comments about head coach Guus Hiddink. This time around, a hopeful nation is praying that Van Marwijk can overcome the lack of cohesion and lead his team to victory over Brazil in Port Elizabeth on Friday.

    The coach, though, seems to have little problem with the collision of egos. He even insisted that the edgy atmosphere between the players could have a positive effect.

    “If everybody is happy and friendly all the time it is not always a good thing,” Van Marwijk said. “It is not always the best way to have a successful team.

    “What matters is that everybody wants to win. They don’t have to want to win for each other. They just need to have that desire and belief and commitment. Other things don’t matter. Fortunately, our players understand that and are happy with it.”

    The Netherlands will go into its clash against a rampant Brazil side as the underdog, but it is considered to have a fair fighting chance of upsetting the South American favorites. The technical and dynamic style employed by the Dutch gives them the opportunity to go head-to-head with Brazil, and the result could be one of the most entertaining games of the tournament so far.

    And with some outstanding attacking talents such as Arjen Robben, Wesley Sneijder and Van Persie, the Netherlands won’t be fazed by the prospect of getting involved in a shootout against the World Cup’s most dominant force to date. There is just one thing that Van Marwijk will demand from his troops before they enter a match that provides a huge opportunity – a semifinal date against Uruguay or Ghana.

    “There must be respect,” he said. “Anything else is irrelevant. But that is one thing they must have for each other. That is one thing that is crucial to function properly.

    “I think we have taken some steps toward that.”

Villa scores for Spain in 1-0 win over Portugal | World Cup 2010

    Spain, Portugal, newsVilla scores for Spain in 1-0 win over Portugal | World Cup 2010

    CAPE TOWN, South Africa (AP)—David Villa finished off a move of Spanish perfection to finally break down Portugal’s defensive wall Tuesday, giving the European champions a 1-0 win and a spot in the World Cup quarterfinals.

    Villa scored his fourth goal of the tournament in the 63rd minute, while Cristiano Ronaldo again failed to inspire Portugal.

    A trademark Spanish passing move found Andres Iniesta in the center. He flicked the ball through to Xavi Hernandez, who backheeled to Villa, who was bordering on being offside as he charged in on the left.

    The Barcelona-bound striker saw his first shot blocked by Portugal goalkeeper Eduardo, but on the rebound, he coolly slotted home with his right foot.

    “It was one of my best goals because it got us through to the next round,” Villa said. “Keep scoring so we can keep going.”

    Portugal’s only defensive weakness had been on its right flank, where Ricardo Costa struggled. He was sent off for elbowing Joan Capdevila in the 89th minute, stifling a late Portuguese drive.

    “The match was extremely intense,” Spain coach Vicente del Bosque said. “In the second half, we were better than Portugal. We had greater depth in our play, and we controlled the game very well.”

    Ronaldo, the world’s most expensive player, showed only rare flashes of brilliance at the tournament, however.

    “We believed that he can do it,” Portugal coach Carlos Queiroz said. “He is our leader, our captain.”

    Spain will now play Paraguay in the quarterfinals on Saturday at Ellis Park.

    Exactly two years after Spain ended a 44-year drought by winning the European Championship, the team stayed on course to become the first European titlist to add the World Cup since West Germany did it in 1974.

    Spain was about teamwork, and it showed from the start. Fernando Torres and Villa immediately moved down the left, looking to exploit Portugal’s weakness on right back. Within the first seven minutes, Eduardo had to make three quality saves to keep Portugal in the game on angled shots from Spain’s two strikers.

    “His performance was brilliant,” Queiroz said of his goalkeeper. “He saved and kept the team fighting for the result.”

    Portugal went out of the tournament after conceding its first goal in four games.

    “To lose by one goal in a championship hurts very badly,” Eduardo said.

    After the sterling start, strangely enough, Spain did not continue to pound Portugal’s weak right side and instead settled for the intricate passing game through the center it has become famous for.

    Once Portugal’s defense settled, it proved why it has one of the best in the world, conceding only one goal in its last 12 matches. It clogged play in the center and Spain got frustrated to the extent that it was reduced to long-range attempts Gerard Pique.

    “We never lost our confidence,” Villa said. “We know the potential we have and what we can give.”

    Portugal’s problem was that Ronaldo was yet again off form. Right before the opening whistle, he looked up at the night sky and started pleading with his arms outstretched, almost begging to finally make his mark on a huge game.

    The heavens didn’t respond.

    Ronaldo’s best attempt came from a free kick in the 28th minute when he launched the ball from 35 meters (yards) with such unpredictable dipping swerve and speed that all Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas could do was block it with his body and see the ball bounce free.

    Otherwise, Portugal could rely little on its captain. As he was pointing left and right where his teammates should go, he often walked.

    In four games, he had shown only a few flashes of his brilliance.

    Early in the second half, Portugal almost got the breakthrough it wanted when a cross from Hugo Almeida bounced off the leg of Carles Puyol and the deflection sailed marginally wide of Casillas’ goal.

    For all of Torres’s running, he still showed he had not fully recovered from his right knee operation in April. Instead of scoring the winner like he did two years ago to, he was replaced by Fernando Llorente in the 59th, and the match immediately changed.

    Llorente had a great header on his first touch of the ball, which Eduardo saved. But two minutes later, Villa scored the lone goal.

    Lineups:

    Spain: Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Joan Capdevila, Carles Puyol, Gerard Pique, Sergio Busquets, Xabi Alonso (Carlos Marchena, 90), Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta, David Villa (Pedro Rodriguez, 88), Fernando Torres (Fernando Llorente, 59).

    Portugal: Eduardo, Bruno Alves, Ricardo Carvalho, Cristiano Ronaldo, Simao Sabrosa (Liedson, 72), Pepe (Pedro Mendes, 72), Raul Meireles, Hugo Almeida (Danny, 58), Tiago, Ricardo Costa, Fabio Coentr

Cherries and Peaches, In Progress



    I had a brainstorm the other day when I was browsing the Inspiration All Around Us blog, and thinking about whether I wanted to try the current challenge or not.  I decided that I did, but that I wanted to experiment with a variation on the collage work I have done in the past.  Sometimes my collages are based on images, and sometimes I just "paint" with scraps of paper I find or alter. For this challenge I decided to combine a painting technique I learned from artist Shelby Keefe with my own collage work.  Keefe does beautiful impressionistic oil paintings that have under painting of complimentary colors.  Here I asked myself what would happen if I did a watercolor under painting in complimentary colors, then applied paper  in the colors of the design over that, being careful to leave some of the opposite color to peek through and enliven the image.

    This first photo shows my source image, the current challenge photo (cropped), and the watercolor first layer.  I'm working on 140 lb. Arches paper here, which seems OK because the collage image is only 6x11 inches.  If it were larger I would work on something stiffer, like 300 lb. watercolor paper or illustration board.


    I got out my envelopes of papers I have ready to go, sorted by color.  Some are used as is, some are old pages from vintage magazines, maps, or other papers which I have glazed with acrylic color thinned down with gel medium.  I try to use a variety of sizes, some with print, some plain. This stage has the yellow table cloth, with the blue peeking through in places.


                                         

    The source photo has a neutral back wall, but I wanted something more lively, so I chose some turquoise papers, and let the yellow gold underneath show a bit.

    I have not started the peaches or cherries, but have hope that they will be clear enough to recognize and interesting.

Rescuers search for 107 victims buried in China landslide

    Chances of finding survivors was diminishing Tuesday as rescuers used heavy machinery including bulldozers to search for at least 107 people trapped under a landslide in rain-hit southwestern China.

    Villagers huddled in tents set up at the site as rescuers looked for their family members.

    But there appeared to be tiny hope for survival, with no word on casualties or survivors by noon Tuesday, said Tian Maosheng, an official from Guizhou Communist Party Propaganda Department, who is helping with the rescue.

    "The number 107 remains unchanged, and there is still no sign of life here," he said.

    Homes were buried when the landslide struck the village of Dazhai in Guizhou province on Monday afternoon after days of torrential rains. An official interviewed by state broadcaster CCTV said nearly half a hill had collapsed.

    Makeshift tents were set up as first aid stations and soldiers carrying villagers waded through water and mud as they evacuated more than 360 residents since Monday, CCTV showed.

    Light rain on Tuesday morning held up rescue efforts, threatening to wash more mud down the slopes, but began to subside later in the day.

    CCTV showed rescuers in orange overalls along a winding mountain road and later bent over a large mound of earth, tugging at large concrete slabs buried in it.

    Large areas of southern China have been hit by flooding in the last two weeks, with at least 377 people killed and another 142 missing (not including those from Monday's landslide). More than 3 million people have fled their homes over the past two weeks, according to the Ministry of Civil Affairs.

    On Sunday, floodwaters began receding in the hard-hit south and workers finished repairing a dike breach that forced the evacuation of 100,000 people.

    The large landslide is about 120 miles (200 kilometers) southwest of Guiyang, the provincial capital.

David VILLA-Spain | World Cup 2010

    2010 World Cup, football, soccer, USA, Portugal, Japan, Denmark, Uruguay, Paraguay, Italy, Côte d'Ivoire, Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Ghana, Brazil, Germany, France, England, Slovenia, Korea Republic, Mexico, Netherlands, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, Korea DPR, Cameroon, Chile, Côte d'Ivoire, Denmark, Italy, Japan, Portugal, USA, Uruguay, Switzerland, Honduras, Greece, New Zealand, Spain, Nigeria


    2010 World Cup, football, soccer, USA, Portugal, Japan, Denmark, Uruguay, Paraguay, Italy, Côte d'Ivoire, Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Ghana, Brazil, Germany, France, England, Slovenia, Korea Republic, Mexico, Netherlands, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, Korea DPR, Cameroon, Chile, Côte d'Ivoire, Denmark, Italy, Japan, Portugal, USA, Uruguay, Switzerland, Honduras, Greece, New Zealand, Spain, Nigeria

    Top scorer at UEFA EURO 2008 and a fixture at the sharp end of the Spanish attack, David Villa is currently one of the world's hottest striking properties. A born competitor with an unquenchable thirst for finding the net, Villa always has the goal in his sights whether playing as an out-and-out forward, in a withdrawn role or wide-left in a front three.

    Known as El Guaje (an affectionate name given to children in his native Asturias), this quick and explosive hitman is certainly not afraid of hard work, and is always willing to drop deep and help out his midfield. It is this level of commitment and the gutsy nature of his performances that make the Valencia man a fan's favourite for club and country, as well as earning him his fair share of run-ins with match officials.

    Naturally right-footed, Villa is nearly as proficient with his left, thanks to a childhood accident and his father's foresight. Seeing how his four-year old son would not stop playing even after bearing a plaster cast on his broken right leg, Villa senior felt it best to show the youngster how to strike the ball with his weaker foot.

    Now 28, Villa came up through the youth ranks and began learning his trade at Sporting de Gijon, before exploding onto the La Liga scene at Real Zaragoza, where he enjoyed two goal-filled years between 2003 and 2005. Valencia then spent big to bring the front-runner to the Mestalla, though El Guaje quickly repaid the investment by coming within one goal of the division's top scorer's award, El Pichichi, in his debut campaign. He did however finish as the leading Spanish-born scorer, an honour he has since claimed on two further occasions.

    After the 2009/2010 season, Villa signed with FC Barcelona and will now wear the vaunted blaugrana colours after helping Spain qualify simply for South Africa 2010. The Asturian made his debut for La Roja in February 2005, during Spain's successful qualifying campaign for the 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany™. And the tournament itself could barely have started better, with Villa notching twice in his country's 4-0 opening win over Ukraine. Despite Luis Aragones's side's exit from the competition in the Round of 16 against France, Villa's four-goal haul certainly did his own standing no harm whatsoever.

    Since then, save for absences through injury or suspension, Villa has been an ever-present in La Roja squad and had already racked up 36 goals at the time of publication. Now second in Spain's all-time scorers' list, at his current rate Raul's record tally of 44 appears well within his reach.

    Playing a part in his huge popularity is that, whatever plaudits and success come his way, Villa never fails to play down his own role and heap praise on those around him. And next up for Spain and their inspirational goal-getter is the sizable challenge of South Africa 2010, where he and his mates will be keen to make up for the disappointments of 2006.

Thomas MUELLER-Germany | World Cup 2010

    2010 World Cup, football, soccer, USA, Portugal, Japan, Denmark, Uruguay, Paraguay, Italy, Côte d'Ivoire, Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Ghana, Brazil, Germany, France, England, Slovenia, Korea Republic, Mexico, Netherlands, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, Korea DPR, Cameroon, Chile, Côte d'Ivoire, Denmark, Italy, Japan, Portugal, USA, Uruguay, Switzerland, Honduras, Greece, New Zealand, Spain, Nigeria


    2010 World Cup, football, soccer, USA, Portugal, Japan, Denmark, Uruguay, Paraguay, Italy, Côte d'Ivoire, Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Ghana, Brazil, Germany, France, England, Slovenia, Korea Republic, Mexico, Netherlands, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, Korea DPR, Cameroon, Chile, Côte d'Ivoire, Denmark, Italy, Japan, Portugal, USA, Uruguay, Switzerland, Honduras, Greece, New Zealand, Spain, Nigeria

    There are easier surnames for a German footballer to possess than Muller, especially if you happen to be a Bayern Munich striker. There can be no avoiding comparisons with the legendary Gerd, from journalists and fans alike, but this eloquent and intelligent young man seems to have his feet firmly planted on the ground. Thomas Muller has exploded onto the top flight scene in his first full season as a pro, and surely has the potential to be a major discovery for Germany at the 2010 FIFA World Cup™.

    A native of Upper Bavaria, Muller joined Bayern at the age of just ten. The German FA (DFB) quickly spotted his goal-scoring ability and highly effective playing style, handing him frequent appearances at junior international level. A fringe member of the senior squad in Munich from summer 2008, he received a first taste of Bundesliga and UEFA Champions League action under Jurgen Klinsmann. However, Muller’s stellar ascent began for real with Louis van Gaal’s arrival at Bayern. Searching for the right man to operate in the hole behind the central striker in a 4-5-1 formation, the Dutch supremo settled on the promising young reserve. The fast-starting 1.86m forward instantly became a first-team regular.

    Muller repaid the coach’s faith with a total of 13 league goals, although the 20-year-old offers considerably more than effective finishing skill. Quite apart from pace, vision and exceptional technical ability for a relatively big man, he has demonstrated remarkable versatility, with more than creditable displays both in attacking midfield and wide on the flanks.

    "I think I may be able to help, due to the way I like to keep it simple, potentially as a substitute. I can bring fresh impetus if things are getting bogged down," Muller told FIFA.com earlier this year. It was a typically astute comment, characteristic of his approach both on and off the field. He earned his first full cap in March 2010 in Germany’s 1-0 friendly defeat to Argentina in Munich, and represents a genuine alternative for national coach Joachim Low in South Africa.

    2010 World Cup, football, soccer, USA, Portugal, Japan, Denmark, Uruguay, Paraguay, Italy, Côte d'Ivoire, Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Ghana, Brazil, Germany, France, England, Slovenia, Korea Republic, Mexico, Netherlands, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, Korea DPR, Cameroon, Chile, Côte d'Ivoire, Denmark, Italy, Japan, Portugal, USA, Uruguay, Switzerland, Honduras, Greece, New Zealand, Spain, Nigeria
    The Round of 16 game between the Netherlands and Slovakia pits one of the tournament favourites against a nation making its first FIFA World Cup™ appearance in its own right. Despite the obvious contrast between the star-studded Oranje and their lesser-known but close-knit rivals, it promises to be a fascinating duel.

    The match
    Netherlands-Slovakia, Round of 16, Durban Stadium, Durban, 16:00 (local time)

    In contrast to a number of Europe’s other big guns, the Oranje managed to assert their authority in their section, Group E, in which they were never seriously troubled. After beating Denmark 2-0 in their opener, they defeated Japan 1-0 to secure their berth in the Round of 16 before taking on an already-eliminated Cameroon in their first-phase fixture. Coach Bert van Marwijk used the occasion to run the rule over some of some of his squad players, and still came out 2-1 winners. The Netherlands’ strength in depth, along with the return to fitness of stand-out winger Arjen Robben, suggests the team are strong title contenders, though they will not be underestimating opponents that have already created one of the biggest shocks of the tournament so far by undoing Italy.

    For their part, Slovakia took some time to find top gear, but when they did it proved too much for the reigning world champions. The central Europeans showed their inexperience at this level in allowing New Zealand to secure a late equaliser in their opening fixture, and then were outplayed in a 2-0 reverse by Paraguay. However, they upset the form book with a gritty and skilled display to secure a memorable 3-2 win that put Italy out of the FIFA World Cup.

    Players to watch
    Miroslav Stoch v Gregory van der Wiel

    Expect sparks to fly when the pair renew aquaintances here in the Round of 16. Miroslav Stoch, an attacking midfielder who spent last year on loan from Chelsea with Dutch champions Twente, will find himself facing Gregory van der Wiel, right-back of Ajax. A fascinating duel awaits between these two fine prospects.

    The stat
    1 – The meeting between the Netherlands and Slovakia is the first since the central European nation became an independent country. However, the Oranje faced the former Czechoslovakia once before at a FIFA World Cup, losing 3-0 after extra time at France 1938.

    What they said
    “We expect a difficult game against Slovakia. They showed a lot of character against the Italians and were rewarded with a famous victory. Everything’s fine from our point of view, but there are a just a few things here and there that we need to put right,” Robin van Persie, Netherlands forward.

    “I hope we're capable of producing another performance like the one against Italy. I believe we can give any team something to think about. But obviously the Dutch are favourites, not just for this game but for the whole tournament,” Robert Vittek, Slovakia forward.

    The voice of the fans
    “The Dutch are already thinking about Brazil. which could play into the hands of Slovakia, who are very comfortable in the role of underdogs. If this game is anything like Slovakia-Italy, get ready for plenty of excitement,” Jaaanosik, FIFA.com user.

Brazil-Chile preview | World Cup 2010

    2010 World Cup, football, soccer, USA, Portugal, Japan, Denmark, Uruguay, Paraguay, Italy, Côte d'Ivoire, Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Ghana, Brazil, Germany, France, England, Slovenia, Korea Republic, Mexico, Netherlands, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, Korea DPR, Cameroon, Chile, Côte d'Ivoire, Denmark, Italy, Japan, Portugal, USA, Uruguay, Switzerland, Honduras, Greece, New Zealand, Spain, Nigeria


    2010 World Cup, football, soccer, USA, Portugal, Japan, Denmark, Uruguay, Paraguay, Italy, Côte d'Ivoire, Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Ghana, Brazil, Germany, France, England, Slovenia, Korea Republic, Mexico, Netherlands, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, Korea DPR, Cameroon, Chile, Côte d'Ivoire, Denmark, Italy, Japan, Portugal, USA, Uruguay, Switzerland, Honduras, Greece, New Zealand, Spain, Nigeria

    Brazil will be vying to beat Chile for the third time in three FIFA World Cup™ meetings, with the prize on offer a place in the quarter-finals. Whoever they are facing, the five-time champions come under pressure to win every match with unrivalled swagger.

    That is the price they pay for starting each tournament as favourites, the burden of their success down the years, yet they can expect stiff opposition from South American rivals who have been in fine form since Marcelo Bielsa took over at the helm. Add in the carrot of a coveted berth in the last eight and all the ingredients are present for an open yet fiery encounter, not least since Chile lost 4-2 and 3-0 to Dunga’s charges in qualifying and will be desperate to turn the tables.

    The match
    Brazil-Chile, Round of 16, Ellis Park, Johannesburg, 28 June, 20.30 (local time)

    A Seleção found life difficult against group-stage opponents Korea DPR and Portugal, struggling to find a way through a sturdy defensive barrier on both occasions. Despite dominating possession, Brazil had trouble picking out their forwards in dangerous positions and endured plenty of frustration. That is not a problem they are likely to find repeated against Chile, however, as Bielsa’s flamboyant side are unlikely to settle for cautious counter-attacking football.

    Still, La Roja will need to keep things tight at the back. With the likes of Robinho, Kaka and Luis Fabiano sniffing out openings, Chile will require levels of commitment and organisation similar to those they displayed against Spain, when even down to ten men they managed to keep the European champions at bay – save for the two mistakes that cost them goals. They will nonetheless have to cope without Marco Estrada, sent off against Spain, and suspended duo Waldo Ponce and Gary Medel, while Brazil could be deprived the services of injured pair Felipe Melo and Julio Baptista.

    Players to watch
    Kaka (BRA) v Jorge Valdivia (CHI)

    The Brazil playmaker remains an idol at Sao Paulo, where he first rose to prominence before setting sail for AC Milan, while his Chilean counterpart was an iconic figure for O Tricolor Paulista's regional rivals Palmeiras, firing 24 goals in 93 appearances between 2006 and 2008. Despite those contrasting club allegiances, the two players perform a similar function on the pitch and how they fare could well prove key to this game. Their vision, the quality of their passing and their set-piece pedigree could all potentially make the difference at either end, with neither defence noted for being porous or naive.

    The stat
    2
    – Brazil and Chile have crossed paths on two previous occasions at this level, in the semi-finals at Chile 1962 and in the Round of 16 at France 1998. A Canarinho prevailed in both games, scoring four goals each time to triumph 4-2 and 4-1 – an omen, perhaps, for a feast of attacking football at Ellis Park Stadium.

    What they said
    "We’re going to need to learn to play against defensive sides as I think very few teams will want to play Brazil at our own game. A Seleção must start finding solutions to get around this problem, because from now on every match will be decisive,” Luis Fabiano, Brazil forward.

    "Brazil have proved down the years that they’re a team to be feared, but in this World Cup they’ve also shown that in addition to their usual creative style they now boast combativeness and strength,” Marcelo Bielsa, Chile coach.

    Voice of the fans
    "It will be very difficult and we won’t have our two defenders Medel and Ponce (listed as the two best players at the World Cup by the Castrol Index). There ought to be a change with Suazo back in the side and he scored two goals against Brazil in qualifying. But Brazil will always be Brazil. May the best team win,” FIFA.com user Darilx (France).

    The question
    Chile have not overcome Brazil since a friendly in 1993, failing to carve out victory in their last 13 meetings. Will La Roja finally be able to end that run on the grandest stage of all?

Puffin

    5x7 inches, watercolor, rice paper, tissue paper collage

    I did a couple collages in my recent workshop that didn't ring my chimes, and since they were in 300 lb. Arches paper, I just ripped them into small shapes and tried again on the back side.  I have wanted to try something with puffins since we visited Ireland a few years ago.  We took a little boat out to Skomer Island and saw zillions of the little clown-faced puffins.  The island is a sanctuary, so they were fearless, flying in and out of nooks and crannies in the rocks, often with their beaks loaded with little silver fish.  As cute as they are they smell to heaven of fish.

    Anyway, I decided to paint this little guy in watercolor from a reference photo, then this afternoon I added some rice paper in the rocks and black tissue in the background.  Actually, I added some back acrylic ink to the bird to deepen the color.  My dear husband doesn't like it much, the way the bird almost merges with the deep background, but I rather do.  I guess in this case I only need to please myself.

    Wow, sorry for the delay! Life has been very busy with no shortage of ups and downs. Picking up where I left off, Pittsgrove Day was not as successful as I had hoped. Great networking though! I know I mentioned the poor turn-out in my youtube update a little while back. People are just so rude these days. I DO NOT appreciate when parents snap at myself or my line manager. I'll be coming back to this subject later.

    In the meantime, I was very fortunate to get picked up by Kerry Ann Smith of About Face II for several gigs. I very much enjoyed the opportunity to work during the final Flyers' games as well. My sister even had the chance to model which totally made her day.

    These are the girls I did the most work on, along with a crew of 4 other painters.


    Here's a random pic of the Tasty Kake stanley cup being assembled. Oh the things I've seen...


    Daddy had a ball too!



    Painting at the Mann Music Center for a Childrens' Hospital of Philly event.




    Shortly after my last Flyers' gig I got hit with a nasty case of food poisoning that put me on my ass for a good 5 days. I missed Relay For Life and my cousin's wedding! :( Total bummer.

    On June 19th I set up shop at the over-hyped Southern Shore Music Festival. A total drag and waste of money. Yet another local event where one or two assholes pop up to give us a hard time and then crawl back under the pile of shit they sprang from.
    The music was excellent, I will give them that. Awesome performances from Splintered Sunlight, Trout Fishing in America, The Lee Boys, and of course Little Feat.

    Mom lent me her awesome Grateful Dead Sacred Pool banner for the booth and I painted my face up like Bertha. Many many compliments :D



    Right now, I am updating you from the Greater Columbus Convention Center. I'm in attendance with the bf for Origins Game Fair. Just killing time, waiting for the always-awesome art show to open up. Tonight we are getting our grub on at the Mongolian BBQ and possibly stopping by the Beer Haus before catching the shuttle back to capitol square. Tomorrow I'll be checking out ComFest which is practically across the street and then hitting up Gordon Biersch for dinner.

You're a Doll




    I like to avoid a lot of analysis and philosophizing about the things I post here. It seems to me that that should be left up to you folks. I do often state that I love a lot of the things that are on the fringes of "Art Ceramics" Things like China painting, Grandma Ceramics and Mass produced ware. I love all that stuff. One of those often ignored things is Porcelain Dolls. I have one friend that makes a lot of dolls and they are a much ignored art form. I stumbled across these and my breath was taken away. 






    Artist Marina Bychkova has created a series of stunning Porcelain Dolls. The only thong I will say is that the few images I posted here are barely representative of her work. Full of detail, creativity and stunning beauty, All I can do is sit an gawk. I recommend you do the same.
