Boxing Focus

This coming December 6, even though the number one sport I love and enjoy is soccer, I will be taking my focus off it for a while and put it on Manny Pacquiao's match against Oscar De La Hoya. If I had the chance and the funds I would even get my las vegas strip map out and look for a place to stay in vegas and get tickets to watch the match live. That match will be very much different from football matches as it will be one against one battling it out for pride and glory. And of course

Argentina Wins Over Scotland, 0-1

Scotland lost as Argentina marked Diego Maradona's first match as leader with victory at Hampden. Maxi Rodriguez gave the visitors the lead and the win after eight minutes at the end of a superb passing move involving Carlos Tevez and Jonas Gutierrez. James McFadden came close twice for the Scots before half-time and goalkeeper Juan Pablo Carrizo saved well from the striker early in the second half. And the home side were unable to at least tie the game in the closing stages. Pictures from below.

England Wins 1-2 vs Germany in Berlin Friendly

Captain John Terry scored a late goal to earn England a fully-deserved friendly win over Germany in Berlin. Terry headed in Stewart Downing's free-kick after being involved in a defensive mix-up with Scott Carson earlier that gave Germany an equaliser. The pair failed to deal with a hopeful ball forward and German substitute Patrick Helmes pounced to score.

Matthew Upson had put a dominant England in the lead when he poked home a corner from the impressive Downing. The win made it five in a row for England on a night where almost everything went right for Fabio Capello.

Those who have gotten this condition through an injury during birth can contact cerebral palsy lawyers for the situation to be reviewed by legal and medical professionals especially if the condition was caused by a medical malpractice.

Fulham Gains Deserved Win vs Tottenham, 2-1

Former Spurs winger Simon Davies was credited with the first goal in the 33rd minute, though it was another awful mistake by Heurelho Gomes, who fumbled into his own net. With the visitors in disarray from corners, Andy Johnson pounced to turn in the second during the 70th minute inside the six-yard box. On the 81st minute Spurs substitute Fraizer Campbell slotted home to create late tension but Fulham deserved their victory.

Wii FIFA Football

I am excited to try playing football using Wii. On January 8th my parents-in-law will be returning from their trip from the United States where they visited their relatives who worked in Dallas jobs. They have lots of stuff to bring home and Wii is one of them. I have seen that there is a FIFA football game for Wii and I am curious as to how close that is to the real game. I know that nothing beats a good game of real soccer but again, I’m curious and excited.

West Ham United Ends Losing Streak, Ties With Portsmouth

West Ham stopped their losing streak with their first clean sheet of the season and a point, but they could easily have had all three. Portsmouth's three best first-half chances were from Jermain Defoe but despite the visitors dominating, keeper Robert Green was rarely tested. Craig Bellamy's second-half free-kick that hit the bar for West Ham was the best chance of the match. That chance inspired the hosts to go on the attack but Portsmouth dug in.

Thursday Training Rantings

Last Thursday we had our football club's training and it was about two hours of continuous running, sprinting, ball handling and then about an hour of scrimmages. We only stop for about 2 to 3 minutes of water break where some had to drink from Grohe faucets and some from their own water bottles. This is in preparation for our first match in the NCRFA Terry Razon Copa Filipina tournament where we will be facing 14 other football clubs.

Preparing Four Our First Match vs Nomads FC

The schedule of the first match of our football club, Marikina United FC, was supposed to be last November 8 against UST High School, but this was postponed because the venue which was at Xavier School was not available. It turned out better for our football club because even though we are prepared for possible injuries, some members probably have health insurance like those that are provided by a North Carolina health insurance company, as a team we haven’t organized ourselves pretty well yet.

Our upcoming schedule, which we hope won’t be rescheduled, will be on Novermber 24, 6:30 PM against Nomads FC 3 at their football field. Right now, we are trying our best to be prepared enough as we can for this third division football match in the Third Terry Razon Copa Filipina Tournament.

Oh, how fast time flies. It seems like a while ago when my son was born and now he’s three years old.

I am now in search of the best football training center here in the Philippines that we can afford to help him learn football at an early age.
