England and USA withdraw World Cup bids


MIAMI, Oct 15 (Reuters) - The United States has withdrawn their bid to host the 2018 World Cup and will focus entirely on their bid for the 2022 tournament, the country's bid committee said on Friday.

"For some time we have been in conversations with FIFA and UEFA about the possibility of focusing only on the 2022 bidding process, an option we have made reference to many times," said Sunil Gulati, Chairman of the USA Bid Committee and President of U.S. Soccer. "

We are confident this is in the best interests of the USA Bid," he said.

Meanwhile, England 2018/22 has confirmed to FIFA that it was withdrawing its candidature from the FIFA World Cup 2022 and will now focus on its bid to host the tournament in 2018.

This followed consultation with UEFA President Michel Platini on the most appropriate moment to withdraw.

England 2018 is delighted it is now clear the FIFA World Cup will be coming to Europe in 2018 following the withdrawal of the United States bid.

Messi visits hospital

MESSI: THE BEST MEDICINE



With nothing but his pressence, and without any football in the way, Lio Messi proved yesterday to have curative qualities. During more than 2 hours, the time that the player spent with them, around 50 kids managed to forget they suffer from a pathology that usually holds them from living a normal life.

Despite his shyness and reserved personality, the magnetism that Messi radiates can have an even more benefic effect on a young child that any of the treatments they go through. A clear example: a boy who had been crying all day long and that couldn't be calmed down only stopped when he saw the Barcelona player coming over to him and holding him.

The hospital Messi visited yesterday was the Vall d'Hebron, for the opening of a playground that has the name of his foundation and that has been built and designed with exclusive characteristics to make it accesible for all the young patients in the hospital.

After signing more than a hundred autographs, the player happily posed with all the children for a picture that will be featured in the next Fundación Anima calendar, that also collaborates with the Leo Messi Foundation and the Vall d'Hebron hospital.

Messi's was also very important to the doctors of the hospital. "To us, Leo Messi has scored the best goal of his life," said Pilar Solans, the head of Vall d'Hebron. "He has the golden ball, golden boot... all he's missing is the golden robe, and we'll be giving it to him soon," she added, very thankful to the argentinian player.

And the New Mexico Coach is..

Chepo!!! (most likely)

Vucetich dropped out!!
He had said no to the selection. As reported yesterday The Sniper, Victor Manuel Vucetich has rejected the offer to lead the Tri.

Monterrey Technical Director discussed during the last days the proposal made by the Selection Committee, and although he had initially accepted,he withdrew for personal reasons, according to sources inside the Mexican Football Federation.

It is known that earlier this week Vucetich made the decision and on Wednesday was the official adviser of  Monterrey, José González Ornelas.

Now, the way is paved for José Manuel de la Torre, the other candidate interviewed by the Femexfut, but the question is whether the resignation of his brother Nestor in the direction of selection and treatment he received from players and federation will not also refuse to accept the position.

Mexico 2011: U-17 World Cup


 
In this way, the FIFA U-17 Mexico 2011, dates June 18 to July 10, with the participation of 24 countries, and in total 52 matches will be played.

The emblem reflects the many faces of the host country, its welcoming spirit together and its passion for football. The aim of the image is to engage people across the host country and beyond its borders as the countdown begins and competition time draws nearer. The use of the Mexican colours of red, white and green as well as the tree of life, communicates the passion and feeling that the event will produce, also expressing dynamism and a youthful spirit.
