Uruguay's Forlan joins Brazil's Internacional

The Associated Press –

SAO PAULO (AP) -- The Brazilian club Internacional says it has signed Uruguay's Diego Forlan, voted the best player at the 2010 World Cup.

Internacional says the 33-year-old striker signed a contract until July 2015 and will be introduced to fans on Saturday.

He had been playing with Inter Milan since transferring to the Italian club from Atletico de Madrid in 2011. He also previously played for Manchester United and Villareal.

Forlan is one of the top foreign players to be signed by a Brazilian club. Internacional won the Copa Libertadores, Latin America's most important club competition, in 2006 and 2010.

RIP Negro Cubilla..Muchos amigos quedaron en Chile.

MONTEVIDEO, March 4 (Reuters) - Former Uruguay forward Luis Cubilla, who played in three World Cups for his country and as a coach won the Libertadores Cup twice with Paraguay's Olimpia, has died at the age of 72.

The Uruguayan Football Association (AUF) confirmed on its website (www.auf.org.uy) that Cubilla, one of the country's most successful and influential players, had died of stomach cancer in the Paraguayan capital Asuncion where he lived.

As a player, Cubilla took part in the 1962, 1970 and 1974 World Cups, with his side reaching the semi-finals on the second occasion before losing 3-1 to Brazil

He was memorably involved in Uruguay's last-gasp extra-time winner against the Soviet Union in a 1970 World Cup quarter-final, tenaciously winning a ball the Soviets thought was going out of play to set up Victor Esparrago for the only goal.

Cubilla played for both Uruguay's major clubs, Penarol and Nacional, winning four domestic championship titles with each, plus one more in the twilight of his career with rank outsiders Defensor Sporting.

He also played for Spain's Barcelona for two seasons, winning the Copa del Rey, and River Plate in Argentina.

As a coach, he was well travelled and worked in Paraguay, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador and Guatemala as well as his homeland.

He had five stints with Olimpia, winning the Libertadores Cup at the first attempt in 1979, the first time a club from outside Argentina, Brazil or Uruguay had won the competition.

He led them to the title again in 1990, midway through his third spell at the club. No other club from Paraguay have ever won the competition, which is South America's equivalent of the European Cup.

Altogether, he coached Olimpia for a total of 15 years, winning eight Paraguayan championship titles.

His major disappointment as a coach was with the Uruguay national team, which he led at the 1991 and 1993 Copa America tournaments.

Results were uninspiring and he quit before the 1994 World Cup qualifiers.

Brazil to increase border security for Confed Cup

BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) -- Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff says security will be reinforced on the country's borders in preparation for the Confederations Cup in June.

She says that beginning in May ''a grand military operation will cover our frontiers of nearly 10,000 miles to prevent crimes and improve security'' for the World Cup warm-up tournament.

Defense minister Celso Amorim said recently about 20,000 troops would be added to reinforce border security during the June 15-30 Confederations Cup.

Brazil will use newly acquired drones to provide safety for the tournament of continental champions.

Brazil shares borders with 10 countries in South America. Most police action in the region involves combating drug traffic and the illegal entrance of goods.

Funny South American managers news.

Leonel Alvarez the manager of Deportivo Cali is just lulz. He makes me laugh. He is the classic macho 70s throwback and what you see with many South American managers.

Ecuador no estuvo al nivel de Alemania en amistoso

Internacionales

Miércoles, 29 de Mayo de 2013


El equipo de Reinaldo Rueda no pudo con el poderío de los germanos y perdieron por 4-2 ante los europeos en un amistoso jugado en Boca Ratón, Estados Unidos. Los dirigidos por Joachim Löw hicieron la diferencia en los primeros 25 minutos para el cómodo triunfo.
