Youth WC: Time to watch the boys in action!

In a really busy period, the Copa America is catching every eye, but the Youth World Cup will get underway tomorrow (Saturday, June 30th) and Argentina will be one of the teams in action as they start their title defense with a game against the Czech Republic.

Led by Atletico de Madrid tricky forward, Sergio Kun AGÜERO, Argentina will aim for their sixth Youth World Cup title and repeat what Lionel MESSI (with AGÜERO as a back-up) did two years ago in The Netherlands.

Argentina and the Czechs have never faced each other before in the finals, although the South Americans did beat the former Czechoslovakia at Mexico 1983 with a side that had defender Jorge THEILER as one of the main figures. Now he is one of TOCALLI's assistant coaches.

In the build-up for the game, Racing Club keeper (recently bought by Dutch outfit AZ Alkmaar), Sergio ROMERO said: "We've got a number of objectives for this tournament, but the main one is to play seven games. That's what we're here for and we're hopeful of achieving just that."

The game will be played at Frank Clair Stadium in Ottawa and will be one of Group E opening matches. Panama and Korea DPR will jump to the field earlier tomorrow in the same stadium.

Another big favourites, Brazil, will also have their debut tomorrow as they take on Poland to open Group D. Their match will be followed by USA v Republic of Korea.

Midfielder Renato AUGUSTO from Flamengo and forward Alexandre PATO from Internacional de Porto Alegre will be the key players for Brazil as they will try and cover the absence of LUCAS, recently bought by Liverpool, who will be out with a knock.


(Play-by-play won't be available at Mundo Albiceleste as I think I'll have to run to a local pub and ask them to let me watch the game! I won't have it with my regular cable-TV provider. So hopefully, I'll be able to watch it and then write a match report here).

Hey Seba, just wanted to let you know that FIFA.Com will be airing all the matches live online for free. However there are only certain countries that can watch them.
Here's the list. Vamos Vamos Argentina!

Viewers in the United States can either watch it on ESPNU, or Fox Sports en Español.

At present moment, I'm not too sure whether any local TV station and cable network are going to show any matches live.

Tonight there is Wimbledon tennis action going on so I'm hoping to catch both NALBANDIAN and CANAS in action and lets hope there is more to celebrate this weekend after the great performance of our football team and......

BDO Men's 2007 Champions Challenge

Our hockey team have just booked a place to play in the final after a spirited performance against the New Zealand Black Sticks, with 3-3 draw. Both teams will play in the final this Sunday.

80th minute no goal. we almost had 60% possession. lots lots of shots, czech had almost no real shot. and so far 3 yellow for czech 2 for us.

Rio said...

bah, czech keeper is freaking solid.
why they always have keeper named petr?!!!

We dominated play but could not find a way through... Aguero and Zarate worked hard but to no avail...

Anyway the other teams in the group are Panama and North Korea, so I guess we should make it to the second round, but if the Czechs score more goals then we will end up being second...

Better luck next time.
