Alejandro Sabella has begun to turn Argentina into his team, naming Lionel Messi his captain. Javier Mascherano has worn the armband since 2008, but as soon as Sabella was introduced as the team’s new manager just a few weeks ago, he announced that he would look for a new captain. That new captain is Messi, which is a strange choice considering his complete inability to play well for the Albiceleste.

‘Joga Bonito’ and the Beautiful Game: Hooliganism Is Here To Stay

Firms, football hooliganism and middle-aged flab a dying art? Think again!

Ali Sami Yen Stadium

Football hooliganism has no specific legal definition. The term was created by the media, the tabloid press in particular, in the mid-1960s. Since then, they have been extremely flexible and indeterminate in ascribing the “hooligan” label to different incidents. The perpetuation of football hooliganism can be linked to the high level of drama, aggression and petit mal that overcomes players in the 90 minutes of rigid warfare on the football field.

Magical Messi gives Argentina win over Brazil [Highlights]

Lionel Messi scored a superb goal two minutes into added time to give Argentina a 1-0 win over arch-rivals Brazil in friendly at Qatar’s Khalifa International stadium on Wednesday.

Messi played a one-two in the middle of the pitch with substitute Ezequiel Lavezzi and raced through the Brazil defence cutting across to the left to send a low, diagonal, left-footed shot past the diving Victor into the bottom far corner.

The match, in which Ronaldinho made a promising Brazil comeback, was a first victory for Argentina over their great South American rivals in six meetings since 2005.

Ronaldinho, overlooked for the 2010 World Cup finals, might have scored with a cheeky backheel in the first half but Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero was alert and saved.

Messi’ goal was the first conceded by the new Brazil side coached by Mano Menezes, who had won their three previous friendlies.

Sergio Batista was making his debut as Argentina coach after friendly wins over Ireland and world champions Spain and a defeat away to Japan in an interim capacity.

A little smile for Batista: Puyol will not play against Argentina

Sergio Batista has a star less to worry about.  Spanish defender Carles Puyol suffered a strain in his left calf, and will therefore miss out on playing a friendly against Argentina next Wednesday. The contracture in the calf of his left leg, grade two, happened during a training session of Spain and gravely concerned coach Vicente Del Bosque, who now must find a replacement on the defense.

On Tuesday 7 September, “The Fury” will face Argentina, who seemed to have solved their internal problems with the support of the players to “Checho” Batista in his post as coach.

No Messi without Xavi?

We all know about the amazing season that the Spanish club Barcelona had in 2008 and 2009. They won six trophies and that means that they took all the gold away from their opponents. They entered six competitions and were able to win all six of them, and that marked the end of a world record run. They won the Spanish League- La Liga, Copa Del Rey, UEFA Super Cup, UEFA Champion’s League, Super Copa de Espana and the Club World Cup.
