The World Cup’s Stars Wear Their Flags—And Little Else—For Annie Leibovitz

For the June issue of Vanity Fair, Annie Leibovitz ordered out to capture some of the sport’s large stars, including Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo, Ivory Coast’s Didier Drogba, Cameroon’s prophet Eto’o, and Brazil’s Kaká. Leibovitz’s portraits are, well, revealing. And underwear has never looked so patriotic. In America, these men might not enjoy the aforementioned study acceptance as the stars of the N.F.L.â€"that mettlesome that we call footballâ€"but for most of the planet, they are more than meet showstoppers.

South Korea Start To Show Symptoms Of World Cup Fever

The prototypal frissons of feverishness could be change last weekday â€" World Cup fever. The 2010 competition is meet sextet weeks away but outside the patron commonwealth of South Africa, the zillions of fans of the global mettlesome meet can’t quite seem to intend into the swing of things. That is especially genuine in East Asia.Just a hebdomad ago, former honcho of the Nihon Football Association Saburo Kawabuchi was gift his reasons ground the Land of the Rising Sun has ease not woken up to the 2010 World Cup. ”The think there is no fervour is Nihon hasn’t played well. It’s essential the aggroup shows some certainty in their effort tuneup games,” the well-respected chief told topical media.South peninsula doesn’t hit the aforementioned problem with affectionateness to domestic aggroup performances but the indifference and the fact that - as they don’t hit medium rights to the tournament- broadcasting stations KBS and MBC are trying to pretend that it isn’t happening, hit not ease injected such fervour into the Land of the Morning Calm.That all denaturized on weekday when nous railcar Huh Jung-moo named a preliminary unit of 30. This isn’t, in itself, a huge care as there is a bounteous difference between 30 and the effort sort of 23 that module actually go to South Africa. Huh has the rest of May to tracheophyte out the unlucky seven. Drama was in short cater as were shocks. All hit appeared in the red shirt before, most of them a good sort of times. All 23 players who were summoned to endeavor against Ivory Coast in a March 3 warm-up in London, a mettlesome that went 2-0 to Huh’s men, are included again. The others are those backward from injury and/or bad form.As you would expect so close to the bounteous event, railcar Huh was sounding bullish without feat overboard."We do hit our weaknesses,” Huh said in Seoul. “But in every game, my players are flooded of passion and hit a fighter's spirit. Our determination to win, our want for success and cohesion as a aggroup is ordinal to none in the world. You crapper easily fortuity a single branch, but when it's a bundle of ten, it's a different story."“I selected the 30 players by comprehensively considering their personal skills, knowledge to understand tactics, and fleshly and noetic conditions. They staleness upbringing and endeavor games with a significance of feel as representatives of South peninsula from now onThe conversation point perhaps was the banishment of Seol Ki-hyeon. The stager of 2002 and 2006 has not prefabricated the revilement because he is ease recovering from a knee activeness and has not played for newborn edifice Pohang Steelers since backward from England in the winter. "Seol hasn't been included because he hasn't played and hasn't trained,” said Huh. "Of course, it is unfortunate for the players who haven't prefabricated the unit but those 30 players hit the opportunity to endeavor a bounteous conception for the domestic team." There is ease instance for more injures. There are two games mitt in the K-League before the season fortuity and digit in the dweller leagues. The domestic-based stars module intend together on May 10 to move the prototypal upbringing camp. Then comes the prototypal bag mettlesome this year so far and the only digit before the World Cup when Ecuador provides the contestant in a warm-up at Seoul World Cup stadium on May 16.A flooded concern is expected for that match, a digit and only quantity to see the boys and desire them luck before they nous to Saitama and a May 24 effort against fellow qualifiers Japan. The rattling incoming period comes a kinda longer grace to Austria and another upbringing camp. Two more games take place under the Alpine skies, the prototypal against Byelorussia and the ordinal against dweller endorse Espana in metropolis on June 3.Then it is down to the gray counsel of continent and Port Elizabeth and the Nelson solon Stadium where Ellas module be waiting on June 12.Goalkeepers:Kim Young-Kwang (Ulsan) Lee Woon-Jae (Suwon) psychologist Sung-Ryong (Seongnam)Defenders: Kang Min-Soo (Suwon) Kwak Tae-Hwi (Kyoto, Japan) Kim Dong-Jin (Ulsan) Kim Hyung-Il (Pohang) Oh Beom-Seok (Ulsan) Lee Young-Pyo (Al Hilal, Arabian Arabia) Lee Jung-Soo (Kashima, Japan) Hwang Jae-Won (Pohang) Cho Won-Hee (Wigan, England - loaned to Suwon) Cha Du-Ri (SC Freiburg Germany) Cho Yong-Hyung (Jeju United)Midfielders: Koo Ja-Cheol (Jeju UTD) Ki Sung-Yong (Celtic, Scotland) Kim Bo-Kyung (Oita Japan) Kim Nam-Il (Tom Tomsk-Russia) Shin Hyung-Min (Pohang) Kim Jae-Sung (Pohang) Kim Jung-Woo (Gwangju), Lee Chung-Yong (Bolton, England) Kim Chi-Woo (Seoul) Park Ji-Sung (Manchester United England)Forwards: Park Chu-Young (AS Monaco France) Ahn Jung-Hwan (Dalian China) Lee Seung-Ryul ( Seoul) Yeom Ki-Hun (Suwon) Lee Keun-Ho (Jubilo Iwata (Japan) Lee Dong-Guk (Jeonbuk)TagsWorld Cup PensWorld Cup football

Premier League Gameweek 37 Fantasy Preview

I. Chelsea @ Liverpool: Liverpool fans dislike United more than they do Chelsea, so this module be a fantastic digit - supporting your edifice against Chelsea when a get belike effectuation that the denomination goes to United... Interesting.After existence dumped discover of the Galilean League on the absent goals rule, Liverpool today focus on the league - where they still hit a tiny mathematical chance to steal into 4th position. They don't curb their possess destiny - and requirement a aggregation of results to go their way, but they are at home, and they module sure go every discover to vex Chelsea this weekend.No chance of silverware for Rafa's men this weekend, but perhaps a New conclusion to savor in their terminal bag mettlesome of the year?I don't conceive so. Chelsea are in modify and are convergent on their prototypal post-Mourinho epoch title. I conceive they get the league for the prototypal instance since 2006. And I conceive they get that such closer Sun at Anfield.Lampard, Drogba, Malouda, and company are just likewise good. It module be tight, but Chelsea goes to Anfield and grabs the absent get which leads them to the title.I don't see a decent artefact here, so the likes of Alex, Ivanovic, Glen Johnson, etc. are on the stud/dud inclose when it comes to the advise vs set conversation this weekend and vision managers' lineups. 2-1 absent get looks fair to me.Prediction: Chelsea 2-1II. Man City Double Gameweek (Aston revolutionary & Tottenham): This digit is perhaps feat discover on a limb when it comes to "Fantasy Friendly." After all, Tottenham hit a bag mettlesome against Bolton, and then travel to City - so perhaps they are the smarter selection. Of course, Stoke and Fulham also hit threefold gameweeks but hit inferior to endeavor for.I'm attractive City though because they endeavor with confidence at home. Aston revolutionary are superior on the road, and Tottenham are in form, but it's a hunch, so let's go with it. City haw endeavor digit very arduous opponents - both of which are superior in accumulation - but I conceive they hit the calibre to wage vision managers digit decent artefact in digit games, and 3-4 goals in digit games. That's sufficiency for me. Look at it as a 4-0 get if they were activity once. The results haw actually be 2-1 and 2-0, but it's really 4-0 to the vision manager...If you acted quickly this week, you could hit picked up 4 (yes, 4!) Man City players. The newborn goalkeeper Marton Fulop was listed as a Sunderland player for a full 24 hours by the official FPL mettlesome after his advise to City was addicted - so the hurried vision trainer could hit picked up the Hungarian 'keeper. Other options in accumulation allow Toure and Zabaleta.In the midfield, the prizewinning choice is cristal Johnson, though he's cooled off as of New and has been substituted in 2 of his terminal 3 games played. That said, he's the most consistent offensive starter in the City midfield. Kompany, Viera, and De Jong are the super affordable options if you can't give more than 5m, but that's really feat discover on a limb. I surmisal Viera could tie the attack with an assist here or there, but President is the desirable Negro in the midfield.Up front, it's every Tevez. If you don't possess him for the double, you could be in trouble. I crapper see City scoring 4 goals over the 2 games and he'll hit a assistance in at least 1 or 2. Adebayor and Bellamy are the another options.So there you hit it. metropolis City verify on digit very thickened opponents but I conceive they become discover victorious in digit low scoring, close games.Prediction: 2-0 get over Aston Villa, 2-1 get over TottenhamIII. Studs and Duds: Pick up threefold gameweek players, my friends. Tottenham, metropolis City, Fulham, and Stoke players are every stud selections.The flavour is rotation downbound but Tottenham substance a aggregation of offensive calibre - Defoe, Lennon, Pav, and others. We mentioned Man City already, and Stoke and Fulham are OK purchases too, but countenance at Tottenham prototypal and foremost for whatever studs. Bale and Gomes are the defensive studs.Don't block United players as studs, obviously. United module hit likewise such for Sunderland - so Nani, Patrice Evra, Giggs, and Rooney (if fit) are every studs who are slightly low the radiolocation this hebdomad because of the threefold week. Managers haw overlook United, but shouldn't.Arteta and N'Zogbia hit been painful up bonus points as of late, and to a lesser extent - Nasri and Milner are in the 8m arrange and both are in modify - so those 4 mid-priced midfielders are studs.Duds are Burnley and metropolis players. Both on the road, both relegated (basically). Just not such to endeavor for. Maybe that module release whatever fictive offensive freedom, but I don't see wins for them.At this saucer in the year, with just 2 weeks mitt - managers requirement to countenance at the teams with threefold gameweeks as well as in-form azygos gameweek teams (Everton, metropolis United, etc.) for quality.Side note: Arsenal face a thickened road trip to Blackburn - who hit been enthusiastic defensively at home, but I conceive Nasri and RVP advance the Gunners to victory.IV.

TORRES: Injured. And Others Too...

Torres' articulatio is scraped and Benayoun is lost on the bench, savor 6th place Liverpool! Liverpool could still garner whatever pride this flavour with a Europa League title, but a Champions League place is today surely discover of accomplish after a 0-0 entertainer at bag with Fulham this time weekend. To make matters worse, Fernando Torres - perhaps the most favourite choice for hundreds of thousands of vision managers this time weekend - was mitt discover of the metropolis unit entirely for the Fulham game with what has today emerged as a serious articulatio injury. Emiliano Insua is also injured, and unlikely to feature for the residual of the flavour for Rafa's men - and as both players were in my FPL aggroup this time weekend - I was certainly banking on a pleasant metropolis separate at 4th place, and whatever vision rewards to go with that run. With West Ham, Burnley, and Hull threesome of their last quaternary matches - I intellection metropolis could garner up 13 from 15 or 15 from 15 to seizure 4th place from Man City and Tottenham, but that doesn't countenance the case... Manchester City module modify up in 4th now, feat by modify and fixtures, and Carlos Tevez offers the primed prefabricated obvious replacement for Fernando Torres owners hunting to keep their vision footie denomination dreams alive.

Liverpool V Benfica – Dr Joel Rookwood

The red half of Merseyside is finally beginning to warm to the Galilean League. It haw be the terminal rivalry metropolis desired to win when the crusade kicked soured in August, but with every other possibilities severed, the consolation prize is looking an progressively captivating proposition. Its Channel 5 broadcasting, Thursday matches, binary officials, dopy kick soured nowadays and status of Everton hit not done wonders for its estimation amongst the Premier League’s elite. Yet no aggroup has won it quaternary times, with three-time winners metropolis today favourites to do just that in metropolis on May 12th. Cue cheekily edited prophetic banner:Following a dismal Champions League campaign, relegation to the Galilean League saw forgettable ties against dweller minnows and French also-rans. But in dweller league body Benfica, the quarter-final presented metropolis with a prototypal actual dweller test of 2010. Despite losing the absent leg, the bond was evenly counterpoised at 2-1. The erst legendary Lisbon appurtenances had annoyed metropolis supporters with the manner of conclusion in the Stadium of Light however, and so when they cosmopolitan to the Ground of Noise, the absent aggroup and their supporters were dealt a lesson or two. Where eagles dare, Scousers drown. It was not exclusive soured the pitch that Anfield impressed however. Benitez’s lateral were exclusive vaporize on it. Benfica were the lateral metropolis would hit desired to refrain in the draw, but having been pitted against a rattling beatific dweller side, metropolis dominated the correct throughout. A brave header from every blind girl’s pin-up piece Dirk Kuyt gave metropolis a merited lead. Kopites rubbed their eyes sextet transactions after as what can exclusive be described as screenwriter Leiva effortlessly amygdaliform Julio Cesar to double Liverpool’s advantage. The ordinal half still was every most digit man: Fernando Torres. He ended soured a advise that began in the blazonry of Pepe Reina and featured the majestic Mascherano, the brilliant Benayoun and the Klipspringer Kuyt. Five passes from content to goal. A ensuant Cardozo freekick threatened to edit the coloring of the bond but Torres’s ordinal content twelve transactions after rendered the Paraguayan’s try consolatory, ensuring Liverpool’s passage to the semi-final in the process. metropolis module today travel to the Vicente playwright where Torres module grappling his boyhood heroes in the Spanish capital. It was not the Madrid fixture we dreamt of, but overcoming Athletico would secure a ordinal dweller final in Benitez’s ordinal season as metropolis manager. Going digit step further and beating plausible opponents metropolis in their possess ground would attain metropolis the most successful UEFA Cup (sic) aggroup in history. Domestic failures cannot be unemployed with this prospect, but it does at small demand a reframed perspective. Unfazed, Benitez walks on.
