Coach clear-out continues in Colombian championship



BOGOTA, April 5 (Reuters) - The Colombian championship claimed its fourth coaching victim on Monday as Sante Fe announced that Uruguayan Julio Comesana had resigned following Sunday's 4-0 defeat at Bucaramanga.

Club president Eduardo Mendez told a media conference that Comesana would be replaced by Jaime de la Paiva, who won three Colombian titles with Cali-based America.

"Comesana has stepped aside for the benefit of the institution because he saw that after the result, he had no other decision open to him," Mendez said.

Santa Fe, who won the inaugural Colombian championship in 1948 and the last of their six titles in 1975, are 16th in the 18-team table with nine points from 10 games.

Medellin, Quindio and Bucaramanga are the other clubs to have changed coaches since the championship began in February.

South America round-up


RIO DE JANEIRO, April 5 (Reuters) - Uruguayan champions Penarol were left floundering at the bottom of the table after an historic loss to Deportivo Colonia.

Four players were sent off as Bolivian champions The Strongest crashed 3-1 at Oriente Petrolero while three coaches made debuts for their new clubs in the Paraguayan championship and failed to win a match between them.




URUGUAY

Provincial club Deportivo Colonia, founded in 1999 and promoted to the top flight two years ago, chalked up their first win over a major club by beating defending champions Penarol 1-0.

A Rino Lucas penalty two minutes into the second half left Penarol bottom of the first stage with one point from two games.

Cerrito and Liverpool are the early leaders with seven points from three outings. Newly promoted Cerrito won 3-0 at Central Espanol and Liverpool beat Rocha 2-0.

BOLIVIA

Defending champions The Strongest crashed 3-1 at Oriente Petrolero amid unsavoury scenes.

The Strongest goalkeeper Mauricio Soria and Oriente striker Augusto Andaveris clashed in the 20th minute, came to blows and were sent off in an incident which sparked a brawl among the players.

Media reports said that Soria was be escorted down the tunnel by police after refusing to leave the field.

In the second half, Brazilian striker Alexander de Souza, who had given Oriente the lead after only 18 seconds, also refused to leave the field after being dismissed.

De Souza was shown a second yellow for diving but referee Ivan Gamboa did not initially produce the red card, changing his mind after protests from the opposition. Shortly afterwards, The Strongest captain Nicolas Sartori was sent off for a bad tackle.

Darwin Pena and Argentine Federico Astudillo added Oriente's other goals. Paraguayan Francisco Ferreira scored a consolation for The Strongest, whose coach Nestor Clausen was in Argentina's 1986 World Cup winning squad.

CHILE

Universidad Catolica's miserable run continued when they lost 2-1 to Rangers, who won for the first time in nine attempts.

Sergio Vazquez scored a 90th minute winner with a shot which hit the post and went in off goalkeeper Leonardo Cauteruchi.

The hapless Cauteruchi had also gifted the first goal to Luiz Diaz after flapping at a cross and missing. Uruguayan Sebastian Taborda had equalised for Catolica, who have six points and are bottom of group three, in the 77th minute.

Universidad de Concepcion's unbeaten record ended with a 1-0 defeat at San Felipe.

ECUADOR

Liga de Quito and Aucas kept the top two places in the first stage despite both losing.

Former Middlesbrough and Colombia striker Hamilton Ricard scored twice in Emelec's 2-0 win over Liga, who had Ecuador defender Neicer Reasco sent off.

Two goals by Argentina Cristian Carnero gave Deportivo a 2-1 win over Aucas, who have given eccentric Colombian goalkeeper Rene Higuita his latest comeback and signed striker Agustin Delgado on loan from Southampton. Facundo Corozo replied for Aucas.

PARAGUAY

Old rivals Olimpia and Cerro Porteno drew 1-1 in their derby before a disappointing 12,000 crowd. Mauro Caballero put Olimpia ahead and Aldo Jara equalised for the visitors, shortly after Olimpia had Paraguay international Julio Enciso sent off.

Carlos Kiese, Olimpia's latest coach, had taken over on Friday after replacing Luis Cubilla in the hot seat.

Two other coaches made bad starts with their new clubs.

Sport Colombia were hammered 4-0 by champions and first stage leaders Libertad in Eradio Espinoza's first game while Rogelio Delgado watched helplessly as Sportivo Luqueno were hammered 5-1 by Tacuary.

PERU

Alianza Lima hammered nine-man Melgar 4-0 in a meeting of the top two teams.

Jefferson Farfan set Alianza on their way with a 23rd minute goal.

Two goals by Wilmer Aguirre and a penalty converted by captain Jose Soto completed the rout in the last 16 minutes after Arequipa-based Melgar had Edwin Perez and Cesar Charun sent off.

Alianza Atletico moved above Melgar into second place after scoring six goals in the last 31 minutes against Deportivo Wanka.

Javier Lovera gave Wanka an early lead, which they kept until Jorge Huaman equalised in the 59th minute. Alianza followed up with two goals from Pedro Ascoy and one each from William Chiroque, Pedro Garcia and Jimenez.

Former Coventry City striker Israel Zuniga scored both goals as Universitario beat Sport Boys 2-1.

COLOMBIA

Defending champions Tolima were held 2-2 by Atletico Nacional, their sixth draw in 10 games, and stayed a modest 15th. Caldas stayed top despite losing 2-0 to Medellin, who gave new coach Pedro Sarmiento a winning start.

Talleres gift Boca top spot in Argentina



BUENOS AIRES, April 11 (Reuters) - South American champions Boca Juniors took over at the top of the Argentine league on Sunday after Talleres threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with bottom club Chacarita Juniors.

Boca's 1-0 win at Atletico Rafaela put them top on goal difference ahead of unfashionable Talleres, who had led the Clausura championship since the first day of the season.

Both teams have 20 points but Boca have played eight games to Talleres's nine.



Headers by Aldo Osorio and Uruguayan Victor Piriz Alvez put Talleres 2-0 ahead after 26 minutes in Cordoba.

Chacarita, under caretaker coach Enrique Borrel after Luis Garisto resigned last week, pulled a goal back with a Sebastian Pena penalty a minute before halftime.

The visitors, still without a win after eight games, snatched a shock equaliser midway through the second half when striker Claudio Graf slammed home a rebound.

Boca, who beat Talleres last week, took full advantage with a 74th-minute goal by midfielder Matias Donet.

MISERABLE RUN

Estudiantes, led by Argentina's 1986 World Cup-winning coach Carlos Bilardo, continued a miserable run by losing 3-1 at home to Rosario Central and slipped to 15th place.

Rosario went 2-0 ahead in only 16 minutes through Javier Campora and Claudio Gonzalez.

Mariano Pavone replied in the 18th minute but defender Leonardo Talamonti restored Central's two-goal lead in the 43rd minute. Estudiantes were jeered off at the end.

Colon coach Francisco Maturana had an unhappy return to the River Plate stadium where he commanded Colombia's famous 5-0 World Cup qualifying win over Argentina 11 years ago.

Maturana, whose fourth stint as Colombia coach ended when he was sacked in November, watched his team lose 4-1 to River Plate.

Defender Horacio Ameli and midfielder Luis Gonzalez gave River a 2-0 halftime advantage before Fernando Cavenaghi struck twice in the last 10 minutes. Esteban Fuertes replied for Colon.

Boca win high-risk clash to go clear in Argentina :depress:



BUENOS AIRES, April 14 (Reuters) - Boca Juniors went three points clear at the top of the Argentine championship with a 2-0 away win over Chacarita Juniors on Wednesday.

The rearranged fixture was originally due to be played on March 14 but was postponed by a judge at one week's notice because of security fears in the wake of past violence between the rival supporters.

Wednesday's match went off peacefully amid tight security before an 18,000 crowd.

Around 1,300 police were on duty in the stadium, schools in the vicinity were closed and roads near the ground were also shut, creating huge traffic jams in the area on a weekday afternoon.

The last meeting between the two sides in August was abandoned in the second half as opposing fans clashed at Boca's Bombonera stadium, injuring more than 80 people. There was also trouble at a friendly between the sides in 1999.

Argentine soccer has long been plagued by fan violence with gangs of so-called "barras bravas" clashing in and outside stadiums, sometimes with fatal victims.

On the field, the rivalry was less intense in a match which brought together the top and bottom teams in the 20-team championship.

Boca dominated the game and cruised to victory with second-half goals by striker Franco Cangele -- standing in for Guillermo Barros Schelotto who was not fully fit -- and midfielder Javier Villareal.

Boca, unbeaten after nine games, went three points clear of Talleres with 23 points. Chacarita, who have yet to win, remained rooted to the bottom with four points.

Huaiquipan spit earns six match ban (Un Guanaco)


SANTIAGO, April 14 (Reuters) - Colo Colo midfielder Francisco Huaiquipan has been suspended for six matches after spitting at an opponent during a match at the weekend.
Huaiquipan, who plays for Chile's most popular club, was banned after being caught on camera during the 4-2 home defeat by Huachipato, the Football League website said on Wednesday.


Chilean media reported that he had already been dropped by his own coach Jaime Pizarro after being seen to spit in the face of Hector Mancilla as the two tussled for the ball.

No action was taken by the referee, who apparently missed the incident.

'I admit it,' Huaiquipan told local media. 'It was a mistake I made in the heat of the moment. He's accepted my apologies.'

Argentine Maradona in intensive care



BUENOS AIRES, April 18 (Reuters) - Argentine Diego Maradona, one of the most gifted soccer players in history, is in intensive care in a Buenos Aires hospital with heart and breathing problems.

Doctors said Maradona, 43, who has battled drug addiction for the past decade, was breathing with the help of a respirator. He had been taken to hospital after watching a game at his former club Boca Junior's stadium.

His family doctor Alfredo Cahe refused to comment on media reports that Maradona had taken a cocaine overdose. Cahe said a medical update would be issued on Monday.

Family, friends and well-wishers flooded to the Suizo-Argentina clinic on Sunday evening as news of Maradona's condition spread.

One teary-eyed fan held aloft a photograph of Maradona in his soccer-playing prime. A banner read "Diego, Argentina loves you", while passing cars honked their horns.

STUNNING GOAL

Maradona, the fifth of eight children of a factory worker, made his international debut in 1977. He moved to Barcelona in 1982 after the World Cup in Spain for $3 million and spent two years with the Spanish club marred by illness and injury.

In 1984 he moved to Napoli for a world record $7.5 million and helped transform a mediocre club into one of the best in Italy.

Now at the peak of his form, he led Argentina to a 3-2 triumph over West Germany in the 1986 World Cup final.

He scored twice in the quarter-final 2-1 defeat of England, one the infamous "Hand of God" when he fisted the ball into the net and the other a stunning solo goal when he ran through the opposition with the ball seemingly glued to his left foot.

In 1991 he failed a dope test for cocaine and was banned for 15 months. He made his fourth World Cup appearance in the United States in 1994 but tested positive for a cocktail of drugs the day before he was due to make his record 22nd appearance.

Maradona was admitted to a Uruguayan hospital in 2000 for hypertension and an irregular heart beat.

He has spent most of the past two years in Cuba undergoing treatment for drug addiction.

Despite his well-publicised drug problems, Maradona still has a widespread fan club with 20,000 people as far afield as Vietnam and Iceland becoming members of the "Church of Maradona".

He has also been honoured with a musical about the ups and downs of his turbulent rags-to-riches life.

But he is now badly overweight and was often barely intelligible in recent local television interviews.

Two players fail dope tests in Libertadores



ASUNCION, April 19 (Reuters) - Nacional striker Sebastian Eguren and Cobreloa defender Adan Vergara were both banned for six months on Monday for failing doping tests in the Libertadores Cup, the South American Football Confederation (CSF) said.

CSF general secretary Eduardo de Luca told reporters that Eguren failed his test after the Uruguayan club's group five match away to El Nacional of Ecuador on February 12.

Nacional said Eguren tested positive for cocaine but club officials blamed coca tea, widely drunk in the Andean countries to alleviate the effects of altitude, for the result. The game was played at 2,800 metres above sea level in Quito.


Vergara tested positive for a banned substance after the Chilean champions played away to Sao Paulo of Brazil in group four on February 26. Sao Paulo won 3-1.

De Luca said the bans would initially apply to competitions organised by the CSF. But he added the respective national associations and FIFA would also be informed.

Eguren, 23, has played nine times for Uruguay, making his last appearance in a friendly away to Japan last year. He joined Nacional last year after starting his career with their smaller neighbours Wanderers.

Vergara, a Chilean youth international, has spent all his career with Cobreloa.

Chile 1-1 Peru:

FT Report

Reuters

ANTOFAGASTA, Chile, April 28 (Reuters) - Substitute Israel Zuniga scored a last-minute goal as Peru salvaged a 1-1 draw in their friendly away to Chile on Wednesday.

The former Coventry City striker, who now plays for Lima club Universitario, tapped in from close range after Carlos Orejuela had broken down the right to create the chance.

Chile dominated most of the match and took a deserved lead when defender Luis Fuentes headed in from a corner in the 56th minute.

Both teams, using the match as a warm-up for their next round of World Cup qualifiers in June, fielded experimental sides of home-based players.

Oh....how I what Mario Kempes has said about the #10 jersey being retired from the argentinian nat'l team in honour of Maradona ...
He's against AFA doinn such a thing ( I happen to agree with Kempes too !!! )
He mentions to have the utmost respect for El Pibe, but as a former wearer of the #10 himself...he feels someday another player in Argentina even greater than Maradona will emerge to wear that honorable number ......... and that for the time beinn or forever the national team without a #10 ... would be a travesti to the Nation ...



No one in Argentina would have the balls El Matador has by saying what is in his heart...And I admire that in him ...

Universidad de Chile win derby after protest


SANTIAGO, May 5 (Reuters) - Universidad de Chile won their derby against Universidad Catolica 2-1, just hours after their players had backed down from a threat to boycott the match in a row over late payment of wages.
The players decided to go ahead with Tuesday's match only two hours before kickoff following a tense meeting with club president Rene Orozco.


'Yes, we're going to play,' defender Roberto Caceres told reporters. 'It's a derby, there's a lot at stake. We're going to play for the public and for the institution.'

Players said Orozco had agreed at the meeting to pay March wages, which had initially been promised for Monday.

After a goalless first half, Diego Rivarola fired Universidad de Chile ahead in the 53rd minute and Sergio Gioino, who had set up the first goal, added a second against his former club.

Jean Beausejour replied for Catolica, who were knocked out of the competition as a result of the defeat.

Catolica are certain to finish last in group three and have no hope of reaching the second round, even under the eccentric format of the competition

New Bolivia coach turns back clock


LA PAZ, May 12 (Reuters) - Bolivia's new coach Ramiro Blacut has called on four survivors of their 1994 World Cup team in an attempt to revive their 2006 qualifying campaign.
Defenders Oscar Sanchez and Juan Manuel Pena and midfielders Julio Cesar Baldivieso, dropped for indiscipline by Blacut's predecessor Nelson Acosta, and Luis Cristaldo were all named for next month's games against Paraguay and Ecuador.


'We need to bring in some experience to regain lost ground,' Blacut told reporters. 'We have an obligation to pick up points in these games and I think we'll do it.'

Bolivia, who depend heavily on the advantage of playing home games at 3,600 metres above sea level in La Paz, are bottom of the South American qualifying group with three points from five matches.

Blacut, an admirer of German football, was brought back for a third stint to replace Uruguayan-born Chilean Acosta, who was fired after a home defeat by Chile in March.

The 60-year-old was previously in charge from 1979 to 1981, then led the side at the 1991 Copa America.

Bolivia have not qualified for the World Cup since the 1994 finals in the United States, when they were knocked out in the first round after failing to win a match.

They host Paraguay on June 1 and face Ecuador in Quito four days later.

Goalkeepers: Leo Fernandez (Chacarita Juniors, Argentina), Sergio Galarza (Wilstermann), Jose Carlos Fernandez (Bolivar)

Defenders: Luis Gatti Ribeiro (Bolivar), Oscar Sanchez (Bolivar), Juan Manuel Pena (Valladolid, Spain), Ronald Raldes (Rosario Central, Argentina), Lorgio Alvarez (Oriente Petrolero), Alvaro Ricaldi (Wilstermann), Sergio Jauregui (Blooming), Herman Soliz (The Strongest)

Midfielders: Luis Cristaldo (The Strongest), Ruben Tufino (Bolivar), Julio Cesar Baldivieso (Alwakrah Sport, Saudi Arabia), Limberg Gutierrez (Bolivar), Gonzalo Galindo (Bolivar), Walter Flores (San Jose), Carmelo Angulo (Aurora)

Forwards: Miguel Mercado (Bolivar), Joaquin Botero (UNAM-Pumas, Mexico), Martin Menacho (Real Potosi), Roger Suarez (Bolivar), Jose Castillo (Bolivar)

Chile hopeful Salas will face Brazil



SANTIAGO, May 26 (Reuters) - Chile are hopeful that injury-plagued striker Marcelo Salas will be fit in time for their World Cup qualifier at home to Brazil in 10 days' time.

"His injury is minimal in medical terms," team doctor Fernando Radice told reporters. "We haven't ruled out that he will be ready in time to face Brazil."

"If he works well, he could be ready to play in the first week in June."


The former Lazio and Juventus striker inspired Chile to a 2-0 win away to Bolivia in March as he made his international return after a 2 1/2 year absence.

Chile, who host Brazil on June 6, also face Venezuela away five days earlier but Radice said Salas would not be making the trip.

He added that goalkeeper Hector Tapia was doubtful for the Venezuela game because of an injury to this right thigh.

Inter Milan focus on South American transfer targets..

tribalfootball.com - June 1, 2004

Inter Milan's South American scout Luis Suarez has been busily drawing up dossiers on summer transfer targets.

Boca Juniors fullback Nicolas Burdisso has been a long-term target for Inter and Suarez has already held talks with the Argentines about the youngster.

San Lorenzo defender Gonzalo Rodriguez is also in Inter's sights. The youngster was set to join Juventus, though the appointment of new coach Fabio Capello has seen talks between the two clubs stall.

Meanwhile, Suarez is also keeping an eye on Cruziero's Dracena after being asked to check on the Brazilian by Inter chief Marco Branca.

In Italy, Branca is continuing talks with Lecce over another South American, midfielder Ledesma - who is also wanted by AC Milan

Argentina's ref rage

Thursday, 03 June 2004




Argentina Football Association president Julio Grondona blasted referee Oscar Ruiz for awarding Brazil three penalties in their 3-1 win on Wednesday.

Colombian official Ruiz pointed to the spot three times to hand Ronaldo a hat-trick of spot-kicks in the match, all for fouls on the Real Madrid man.

All of the penalties looked like good decisions but Grondona did not agree and was fuming at the man in the middle.

"It seems to be that the referee wanted to get famous tonight," fumed Grondona.

"Everyone saw what he did awarding three penalty kicks that didn't exist.

"I am upset with his performance because the Conmebol gave him a great responsibility, believing that he was going to do good work, but he did everything wrong.

"Argentina didn't deserve to lose in this way and Brazil know that because they didn't even celebrate the victory when the match ended.

"In all derbies, when you have the chance to win, the players celebrate but that didn't happen with Brazil this time.

"The only good thing of all this is that Argentina has the chance to get revenge next Sunday against Paraguay and if other results help us we will be in first position again."

Argentinian national team coach Marcelo Bielsa (pictured) did not lay the blame squarely on the referee, but still thought his side did not deserve to lose.

"In the first half Argentina was superior to Brazil because we had more time with the ball and controlled Brazil," said Bielsa.

"The only time that Brazil created danger was with the first penalty that the referee gave to Ronaldo, but before that my team didn't have any luck in scoring the chances that we had created.

"In the second half we lost possession of the ball in the last 15 minutes and had some problems, besides that Brazil didn't play better than us and only scored with two penalty kicks.

"Brazil won the match because Ronaldo was in the team and scored three penalty kicks and that's why he was the decisive player."
