Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay, all did as expected and separated themselves from the rest. They should continue on that road the rest of the qualifiers.

The fight (also as expected) is for 4th and 5th and no one really made any moves for those spots.

Most interesting game: Ecuador - Venezuela as it will help separate the mess in the 4 and 5 spots.

This quailfiers are so darn long that it won't be settled until the end of 2005:eek:

Pekerman gives us freedom to play, say Argentina trio



By Luis Ampuero

BUENOS AIRES, Oct 6 (Reuters) - Argentina's players appear to be getting more freedom to perform under new coach Jose Pekerman than they did during the six-year reign of his predecessor Marcelo Bielsa.

Pekerman takes charge for the first time in Saturday's World Cup qualifier at home to Uruguay and next Wednesday's match in Chile. ;)


"Pekerman's game is more Argentine and less European," striker Carlos Tevez, 20, said on Wednesday.

"Pekerman gives you the confidence and freedom to play," added the Boca Juniors player, who is considered the most exciting of his country's new generation.

Bielsa, who surprisingly resigned last month with his side playing some of the best football since he took over, was occasionally criticised for stifling their freedom of expression, a traditional part of the Argentine game.

Pekerman, who coached the under-20s for eight years and won three World Youth Championships, is renowned for a more open approach.

Tevez was given his international debut earlier this year and many felt Bielsa waited too long before introducing a player who flourished as an 18-year-old.

Midfielder Juan Roman Riquelme, who only managed a brief look-in under Bielsa, also appeared to be enjoying new-found freedom.

"He (Pekerman) is going to try and do the same as he did with the youth teams, trying to make sure that we enjoy ourselves and, above all, thinking about winning," said Riquelme.

Monaco forward Javier Saviola, controversially overlooked during most of Bielsa's reign, agreed with his two team mates.

"Pekerman lets the players play a little more freely and this maybe benefits some more than others," he said.

"I learned to mark more with Bielsa...and Jose gives me more freedom."

Olmos, Autuori walk the tightrope in South America :notlist:



By Brian Homewood

RIO DE JANEIRO, Oct 12 (Reuters) - Chile coach Juvenal Olmos and Peru trainer Paulo Autuori could both face the sack if their teams lose in Wednesday's World Cup qualifiers.

Speculation is growing in the two countries that they could follow the leads of Ecuador, Colombia, Uruguay, Argentina and Bolivia, who have already swapped coaches since the 10-nation South American qualifiers began in September 2003.


Santiago daily La Tercera named four possible replacements for the beleaguered Olmos while the Peruvian sports daily Libero was even more emphatic.

It stamped a huge photograph of former Ecuador coach Hernan Dario "Bolillo" Gomez on the front page with the headline: "Here comes Bolillo."

The qualifiers reach the halfway stage at the weekend with Chile, who qualified in 1998 and missed out in 2002, in fifth place with 12 points and Peru level on nine points at the bottom with Colombia and Bolivia.

Chile, who face Argentina in Santiago, have failed to win in their last three outings or score in their last two.

Peru, who have not qualified for a World Cup since 1982 and are away to Paraguay, have picked up one point out of their last nine and scored once.

La Tercera quoted several un-named Chilean federation members as criticising Olmos and said they had already prepared a list or four possible replacements. Another newspaper, Las Ultimas Noticias, said the coach's future was unknown.

The choices were Argentine Miguel Angel Russo, Paraguayan Gustavo Benitez, Uruguayan Sergio Markarian, who qualified Paraguay for the 2002 World Cup before being fired, and the return of Nelson Acosta, who led Chile in 1998.

The newspaper also listed what it considered to be "Olmos's 10 cardinal sins" such as fielding players out of position, refusing to own up to mistakes and selecting players who are not playing frequently with their clubs.

Olmos has been mostly criticised, however, for banishing midfield playmaker David Pizarro, after he threw a tantrum on being substituted against Colombia last month.

The players refused to discuss the matter. "We don't want this sort of question," said striker Marcelo Salas during training on Tuesday."

VICIOUS CAMPAIGN

Over in Peru, the media has been united in demanding Autuori's head, often quite viciously.

The low-profile Brazilian does not appear to have helped himself by boycotting the entire Peruvian media corps since July.

Autuori insists that his team are still in with a chance and that Peruvian football needs to become more professional in its approach.

Libero insisted, however, that the Peruvian Football Federation had already begun talks for Colombian Gomez, who led Ecuador to their first World Cup appearance in 2002, to take over in time for November's showdown with Chile.

Colombia were the first team to change coaches during the competition when Reinaldo Rueda replaced Francisco Maturana after four games.

Bolivia followed when Acosta agreed to stand down and veteran Ramiro Blacut came in while and Uruguay's flamboyant Juan Ramon Carrasco made way for Jorge Fossati after a 3-0 home defeat by Venezuela.

Gomez left Ecuador following a disappointing Copa America in July and was replaced by fellow Colombian Luis Fernando Suarez.

Then, Marcelo Bielsa resigned out of the blue as Argentina coach in September, less than one month after they won the Olympic football gold medal.

Chile coach Olmos given vote of confidence

By Manuel Farias

SANTIAGO, Oct 13 (Reuters)

- Chile coach Juvenal Olmos is to keep his job following the side's 0-0 draw against Argentina in a World Cup qualifier on Wednesday, the federation's president Reinaldo Sanchez said.

"Juvenal is the coach of the national team and there's no decision to take in that respect," he told reporters.

Chilean media had speculated that Olmos, heavily criticised following Sunday's 2-0 defeat in Ecuador, could be fired after Wednesday's game.

One newspaper also named four possible replacements but Sanchez said the team had shown vast improvement.

"We've played a very good game, not like the one against Ecuador," he said.

Chile are fifth in the 10-nation South American World Cup qualifying group with 13 points from 10 games, although they have failed to win in their last four outings and have not scored in the last three.

Olmos has also been criticised for fielding players out of position and not admitting mistakes.

His most controversial decision was to leave Italian-based playmaker David Pizarro out of the squad for the Ecuador and Argentina games for indiscipline.

"There are things such as discipline, mutual respect and teamwork; these are values I'm not going to abandon," Olmos said.

"There have been a lot of questions about our work and we haven't had the credit our team needs."

"My position is no different to when I started and it will not be any different until the last day I'm in charge. I'm very proud to be coach of my country's team."

Pekerman says: "Chile stopped Argentina playing".



SANTIAGO, Oct 13 (Reuters) - Argentina coach Jose Pekerman said that Chile prevented his team from playing their normal game in Wednesday's World Cup qualifier.

Argentina were unable to find the flowing football which enabled them to beat Uruguay 4-2 last Saturday and had to settle for goalless draw.

"I think Chile played a great match," Pekerman told reporters. "They put is under pressure in the first half and we had some difficult moments. We couldn't find the ball."

Pekerman added: "We wanted to play the same way we did in the last match but we couldn't, partly because of our opponents and partly because we weren't comfortable."

Drawn matches leaves South American race wide open

By Brian Homewood

RIO DE JANEIRO, Oct 13 (Reuters)

- South America's World Cup qualifying race remained wide open after Wednesday's three matches were drawn, leaving all ten teams still in with a chance of reaching Germany in two year's time.

Brazil were frustrated by Colombia's ultra-defensive tactics as they were held to a goalless home draw in Maceio, while Argentina were hustled out of their normally elegant stride in another 0-0 stalemate in Santiago.

Earlier, a second-half Nolberto Solano penalty gave Peru a share of the spoils as they held Paraguay 1-1 in Asuncion.

The results, which followed another goalless draw on Tuesday between Bolivia and Uruguay in La Paz, mean that Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay stayed on course for three of four guaranteed South American places in Germany.

After ten of the 18 rounds, Brazil lead with 20 points, followed by Argentina on 19 and Paraguay on 16.

The battle for the other direct place, plus the chance to play off against the Oceania region winners for a fifth spot, has developed into a dogfight.

Only three points separate fourth-placed Ecuador, with 13 points, and bottom-of-the-table Bolivia, who have 10.

Chile (13), Uruguay (11), and Colombia, Peru and Venezuela (10 each) are sandwiched between with Venezuela meeting Ecuador in San Cristobal on Thursday.

SAD PARREIRA

Brazilian media had predicted a goalfest in Maceio to follow Saturday's 5-2 win in Venezuela but Colombia had other ideas as they frustrated the world champions.

Both teams had apparently good goals disallowed.

The world champions were deprived in the 70th minute when a close-range shot by substitute striker Adriano thumped the underside of the crossbar.

Uruguayan referee Jorge Larrionda waved play on while television replays showed the ball had crossed the line by at least half a metre before bouncing out.

Two minutes earlier, Colombia defender Mario Yepes had a goal disallowed for offside as replays suggested his effort was legitimate.

Brazil coach Carlos Alberto Parreira was a frustrated man.

"For anyone who has seen some of the fine moments of Colombian football, it's sad to see a Colombian team without any intention of attacking," he said.

NO COMPLAINTS

Argentina coach Jose Pekerman had no complaints after his team's full-blooded game in Santiago, even though some of the Chilean tackling appeared over-the-top.

"I think Chile played a great match," Pekerman said. "They put is under pressure in the first half and we had some difficult moments. We couldn't find the ball."

Chilean Football Federation president Reinaldo Sanchez said that under-fire coach Juvenal Olmos would keep his job after a vast improvement over the showing in Sunday's 2-0 defeat by Ecuador.

Peru coach Paulo Autuori has also been walking a tightrope and it remains to be seen whether the point in Asuncion can save the Brazilian, who has been the victim of an often vicious media campaign.

Paraguay dominated the first-half and hit the woodwork three times before Carlos Paredes fired them ahead in the 29th minute.

Peru came to life in the second half, grabbing a draw with Solano's fourth goal of the qualifiers.

Peru were let off the hook when goalkeeper Oscar Ibanez saved a Julio Enciso penalty in the 88th minute but squandered a chance to take all the points as striker Jefferson Farfan missed an open goal in injury time.
