Kaka is standing out amongst the talented pool of football players in Brazil. According to Pele Kaka is very skillful and already one of the best players in the world.

Ricardo Izecson Santos Leite, Kaka’s real name, despite being only 22 years old has already propelled fellow countryman Rivaldo towards the exit door, has relegated Portuguese legend Rui Costa to the bench and continuously serves as the driving force and brains of AC Milan football club.

Ronaldo: Deadliest Striker on his Injury

in Players

The deadliest striker in the world and Brazilian legend says about his injury:

“These things happen in football,” he said. “If I was a lawyer, this sort of thing wouldn’t occur. What I need now is a change of luck.”

Ronaldo has a torn right calf muscle, which he suffered in the first half match against Villarreal on Jan. 8. He is now undergoing treatment and would sideline the 29 year old legend for three weeks. This is something familiar to him already.

Remember the injuries he suffered prior to World Cup 2002 where he led Brazil to the Promised Land? This guy is mentally strong and he would definitely be good in time for the World Cup.

I just hope that luck would be there for him and all his fans alike though.

Africa’s Extra Place in World Cup

in News & Features

Africa will have five countries representing them in June for World Cup 2006 namely Ivory Coast, Ghana, Angola, Tunisia and Togo. They are also hosting the next World Cup in four years time.

Fifa President Sepp Blatter preferred to have an extra place for the host instead of having one of the five countries today removed for World Cup 2010.

I believe the extra slot would be a walk in the park unless the five countries today show a mediocre performance come June. They have to show they can stay competing strong throughout the tournament to boost Africa’s chance in that 6th representation in World Cup.

They can definitely do this. They have already proved their skeptics wrong when predicted the decline of money once the World Cup is held in Africa. The World Cup 2010 has already generated more money through contracts it has reached with television and sponsors.

This shows the marketing power of football or I would put it better by saying the power of the football product is bigger than any sports in the world. It’s bigger than the Olympics.

The extra money generated in the World Cup can be put into good use through the development of football programmes and an initiative for a better football career in Africa as Blatter pointed out.
