England V Brazil would make for a great final. Although England is not playing great at the moment they should pick it up as the cup moves into the knockout round.  Owen and Rooney need to get into playing shape and things should be fine.

Bad News for England Football

Owen out. Knee injury KO's England striker for rest of World Cup

Michael Owen will miss the rest of the World Cup because of a right knee injury.

The England striker, who was injured Tuesday in the second minute of his team's 2-2 draw with Sweden in Cologne, had a scan on his knee Wednesday and the results confirmed that he will no longer to able to play for the team in Germany, the English Football Association said.

Owen, who had the scan near England's team base in southern Germany, will return to England later Wednesday.

"Obviously it's a massive blow to suffer the injury -- and be out of the World Cup," Owen said in a statement. "As soon as it happened I knew I was in trouble. It was a major disappointment to pick up the injury so early in the game."

Owen's right knee buckled after he had played a pass. He rolled off the field and lay on the sideline clutching his leg while play continued. He was treated by doctors and then strapped to a stretcher and taken away.

The FA said Owen's recovery would be handled by his English Premier League club Newcastle.

"I'm clearly sorry to be leaving the lads in Germany, but I'm convinced they can go on and achieve success," Owen said. "I'll be following all the matches very closely and giving them my full support, hopefully all the way to Berlin.

"My main objective is now to get fit as quickly as possible for Newcastle United."

The 26-year-old Owen, who broke his foot on Dec. 31, only returned last month. He had been replaced in both of England's first two World Cup games.

"Michael has had terrible luck with injuries since Christmas," England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson said. "I feel very sorry for him to miss out on the rest of the World Cup -- it's a blow to him and a big loss for the team.

"However, I am sure Michael will work very hard to get back as quickly as possible for Newcastle and England. He is a true professional and a very mentally strong person. I hope the team can now go on and achieve success in Germany for Michael."

Both England and Sweden have advanced to the second round from Group B.

"It's very disappointing for him and the team as well," England goalkeeper Paul Robinson said. "Unbelievable. Just as he was getting fit as well. It's just a very, very unfortunate incident."

Owen made his World Cup debut as an 18-year-old in 1998, scoring an incredible goal against Argentina. He's been a mainstay in England's attack ever since.

This year's World Cup is his fifth tournament for England, but Owen has had a disappointing past two years.

He moved from Liverpool to Real Madrid in 2004 but failed to break into the starting lineup. He moved back to England last season with Newcastle but only played 20 games before getting injured.

Owen's latest injury means Wayne Rooney's fitness has now become crucial for England. The Manchester United striker started his first game since breaking his foot on April 29 and lasted 69 minutes.

Without Owen, England will only have three strikers left _ Rooney, Peter Crouch and 17-year-old Theo Walcott, who has only 25 minutes of international experience and has never played in the English Premier League for Arsenal.

"To lose a player of Michael's quality is bad for the team and it's bad for the squad," Robinson said. "The loss of a striker is going to hit any squad, but we've got Theo, we've got Stevie (Gerrard), who can play up there off the front two. We've got Wazza (Rooney) and Crouchy who are playing well at the moment. We should be all right."

England plays Ecuador in the second round in Stuttgart on Sunday.

Have not been watching, except highlights on ESPN.  I know the Americans are not favored to go far, but hey atleast  they are hanging on.  But with 2 players red carded should be an interesting game.

9:55am tomorrow is the most important games for the Americans.  They must win for any chance to advance.  Gahana has lost their best player so we have a shot at the same time Italy will be playing Czech Rep and they MUST WIN.  Tomorrow morning is going to be a great day to sit in front of the TV and root on the home country.

America is supposed to have a good team actually...but I think the problem they are facing is the same problem Canada faced in Mens hockey in the olympics.

A very expensive team...everyone trying to be a star...no one working together

Because of Portugals win today Mexico must be out...so another upset from a good team who had a Tough first round.

1-0 Ghana and 1-0 Italy.  It's still early but if the USA can win and Italy stays ahead then we advance.

USA doesn't deserve to advance.  To have 0 shots until this game and no own goals is just bad.  All of the US 'stars' came up small and they need to rethink the entire roster and philosophy.  The coach must go, he does not have any strategy and does not react to the situtations.

I partied last night with the Portugese on St Clair in Toronto...and boy do they know how to have a good time.  My bets are this is going to be the last Port party of the Fifa season after yesterdays insane game.

Red Cards - Costinha and Deco
Injury - Ronaldo

Possible no shows to next game 0 Figo for the headbutt.

Saturday July 1/06

The Match of the Tournament....England vs Portugal

My money is on England!!! :cheer:

That ref lost total control yesterday and ruined a great match.  He has really hurt Port chances of advancing any further.

Well brazil won (shocker) 3-0 the defence men on ghana were not as good as their forwards/strikers which puts too much pressure on the goalie.

Currently Spain is up 1-0 Villa scores at 27min mark....


It would be cool if France won...but i'm doubtful!!

Chunky where are you today with your commentary!!

ok so i was away this weekend...but i'm sure most of u have the update on the games....

"Yesterday Italy beat Germany 2-0 in extra time.  Fabio Gross twisted a left-footed shot into the far side of the net with one minute of extra time remaining, then Alessandro Del Piero clinched the 2-0 win in injury time with a counterattacking goal as Germany pressed desperately to equalize"  Metro Wednesday July 5, 2006.

Today Portugal faces France...touch match up...France is the underdog of the season....but Portugal has all their players back...all I know is that if Italy faces Portugal on Sunday afternoon....all hell will break loose downtown toronto REGARDLESS who wins!!!  :meow:

FORZA ITALIA!!!

Congrats to all Italia fans!! The New Champions of the World...

Exciting nail biting defencive game ending with poor sportsmanship:

From www.fifaworldcup.com

Farewell to Zidane
The presence of France in the Final had been predicted by few but Zinedine Zidane rolled back the years to help Les Bleus see off Spain and Brazil en route to the Final. His efforts earned him the adidas Golden Ball but although he found the net against Italy eight years after scoring twice in the 1998 Final there was no happy ending as his farewell appearance concluded with a red card. While Zidane is now part of France's past, Frank Ribery's performances in Germany hinted at a bright future.


ZouZou had an unnecesary headbutt near the end of the game which was part of the reason France lost.  Henry was subed in near the end of the game as well.  France is a very strong team but without them their hopes were sunk with a 5-3 loss in penalty kicks.

I was down in "little italy" last night...no matter your culture no matter your age....it was party time! This was an experience I will never forget! I had to leave early because of work today =( I was down there from Noon until 10pm!!!

from www.cp24.com
Parties Go All Night As Toronto Celebrates Italy's World Cup WinMonday July 10, 2006
From the heart of Woodbridge, Ont. to the festival on St. Clair West, to the cafes of College Street, the celebrations that took place following Italy's World Cup victory Sunday night were truly ones worth remembering.

And if you don't believe it, one look at the mass of debris, flags and paraphernalia strewn about in each of those locations should be enough to change your mind.

Moments after Fabio Grosso's penalty kick brought Italy their fourth World Cup win - the first in 24 years - tens of thousands exploded onto streets throughout the Greater Toronto Area to kick off festivities that went well into Monday morning, and for some, probably beyond that.

Even at the Rogers Centre where fans usually convene to take in baseball and a different brand of football, 35,000 strong made the scene to watch the big match on the stadium's massive screen.

And with those kinds of numbers in attendance, you know when the show was over the action was only just beginning.

But at its core, the street soirees were about more than just Italy claiming the World Cup, even if they did do so in brilliantly dramatic fashion with a 5-3 win on penalty kicks.

Proof of greater meaning was seen in the inclusion of French fans, sad at their team's loss, but happy to honour the end of a tremendous month-long event with a bash that was fitting.

"I'm very positive and I'm very proud of my team," said one French fan amidst a mixed group at a downtown bar.

And so everyone celebrated together and according to Toronto Police, despite closing several blocks in a few key neighbourhoods and monitoring more than 100,000 people, nothing got terribly out of hand.

Even Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper got in on the act, taking time to give his blessing to festivities that would've gone on either way.

"On behalf of Canada's new government, I would like to congratulate Italy on its World Cup victory, and wish Italian-Canadians the most joyous of celebrations," he said.

It looks like the prime minister got his wish.

France captain Zinedine Zidane, sent off for head-butting Marco Materazzi late in Sunday's World Cup final loss to Italy, won the Golden Ball award for the tournament's best player.

The results were released Monday morning in Berlin by FIFA.

Zidane polled 2012 points in the vote by journalists covering the tournament, beating Italians Fabio Cannavaro (1977 points) and Andrea Pirlo (715 points) in the ballot.

Zidane, who put France ahead with a penalty kick in the opening minutes, was given a red card after slamming his head into Materazzi's chest during the tense second period of extra time.

It was his last act as a professional player and one that was widely criticized in France and abroad.

With the score locked 1-1 after 120 minutes the French missed Zidane's prowess in the penalty shootout, which Italy calmly won 5-3 to collect its fourth World Cup title.

Zidane, 34, a former international player of the year and 1998 World Cup champion, announced last month that he was retiring from soccer after the tournament.

He wasn't particularly outstanding in France's opening draws with Switzerland and South Korea and missed the last group match against Togo due to suspension. But Zidane produced some vintage performances in the wins over Spain, Brazil and Portugal in the knockout phase.

Voting for the 2006 Golden Ball closed at midnight Sunday. In previous tournaments, the ballot has closed at halftime in the final and the winner announced soon after the match.

Italy captain Cannavaro led an Italian defense that conceded only two goals in the tournament: an own-goal against the United States and Zidane's penalty. The final was his 100th cap for Italy.

"I got my award, that's it right there," Cannavaro said, gesturing toward the World Cup trophy sitting on the table in front of him. "I'm extremely pleased with what I have."

With fellow central defender Alessandro Nesta injured, Cannavaro played every minute of Italy's seven games.

Many pundits tipped Cannavaro as the winner, including 1986 winner Diego Maradona.

"Fabio Cannavaro was the best player of this World Cup," the Argentine great said. "Yes, it was a tournament without one dominant player, but Fabio was huge."

Germany goalkeeper Oliver Kahn won the Golden Ball in 2002. Other previous winners were Brazilians Ronaldo (1998) and Romario ('94) and Italy's Salvatore Schillaci ('90).

Germany striker Miroslav Klose was the Golden Shoe winner for the tournament's leading scorer. He won with five goals. Ronaldo won the award in 2002 with eight goals.

From my understanding it was Zambrotta that scored on himself during the USA/italy match.

in regards to what set zidane off....rumour has it materazzi made a comment about him being a terroriste which has yet to be proven.  Come on people this is soccer...I'm not condoning nasty comments but the whole point of side talk is to throw you off your game...its up to you to let it take over!
