The German Football Association said Ballack injured his right calf Friday and not train on that day either, and he adds that he received treatment in the team hotel. No other details were immediately available on Friday of the practice was not open to the media.

"We have to see how it develops overnight," Germany coach Joachim Loew said. "They work around the clock on him.

"It was inconceivable that he would have to train today."

The 31-year-old Chelsea midfielder, a key factor in Germany reached the final, missed at the 2002 World Cup title game because of a suspension. Brazil beat Germany 2-0 for the championship.

He also missed the opening match of the FIFA World Cup 2006 because of a calf injury.

Ballack, either, and finally orchestrate the attacks his team has achieved two goals in five games at the European Championships 2008. He met a blistering free-kick against Austria in a first round match, and headed in the winning goal in the quarter-finals 3-2 victory over Portugal.

Germany flew to the Austrian capital earlier Saturday from its base in southern Switzerland. The association did not release any information about Ballack-injury, he did not show up until the last training before the final.

Ballack absence would be a serious blow to German hopes of lifting a record fourth European title. Ballack was also looking for his first major title - of course, it would be if his team beat Spain without him.

Spain is also missing a key player, David Villa forward.

Loew revealed little about his possible starting lineup during the practice session. Loew was expected to the same group, beat Portugal in the quarter-finals and then to Turkey semi-finals, with the exception of midfielder Torsten Frings return as a successor by Simon Rolfes. But when Ballack is unable to play Loew Cabinet reshuffle his team could be in more possibilities.

Sport Education is a curriculum model is designed to provide authentic sports experience for all students through the six key features of the seasons, the team has been insured, the official competition, record-keeping, a festival, and the culminating events (Siedentop, 1994). Sport Education and Training has proved very successful in increasing the commitment, effort, enjoyment, independence, motivation, physical skill, the decision-making, tactical understanding and cooperative behaviors of students with disabilities without (Wallhead & O'Sullivan, 2005). Although these increases are evident, as examined through the grounds of race, gender, socio-economic status and age, no investigation has so far examined the impact of Sport Education is for students with disabilities. In addition, Ponchillia, Armbruster, and Wiebold (2005) stresses the commitment of opportunities for sport and physical activity is particularly limited individuals with visual impairments. In this study, was intended to define the impact of the Sport Education and Training curriculum to individuals with visual impairments to participate in sports camps. The participants were 28 individuals ages 10-22 years. The collection of data included in the pre-and post-questionnaires, individual and group interviews, and field observations. A modified version of The Sports Camp Evaluation Instrument (SCEI) was used prior to a questionnaire to measure sports knowledge, skills, attitudes and the degree of participation in sports activities (Ponchillia, Armbruster, & Wiebold, 2005). The Physical Education Season Survey, as modified by Hastie and Sinelnikov (in press) used to post the questionnaire to measure the participants' perceptions of Sport Education. Efficiencies to assess the Sport Education model, a series of one-way repeated measure analysis of variance (ANOVA) was taken. The interviews were tape-recorded, transcribed, and analyzed qualitatively, using inductive analytical strategy. Several researchers independently encoded in an interview with the domestic data integrity. The results showed that statistically significant increases occurred. In particular, participants' awareness of their sports knowledge and skills, increased by 69%, enjoyment and participation increased by 14%, and the team is insured grew by 30%. The results showed that the implementation of Sport Education model was to provide an effective authentic sports experience for students with visual impairments. This was evident through the increase participants' self-perception of their knowledge and skills in a variety of sports, their willingness to participate, the team has been insured, and enjoyment, parties and ending event. The findings suggest that the Sport Education and Training has been possible to facilitate the successful inclusion by providing opportunities for individuals with visual impairments and children with disabilities receive the positive benefits of Sport Education.

Point taken as Dragons deliver

Point taken as Dragons deliver

* Font Size: Decrease Increase

Stuart Honeysett and Brent Read | June 21, 2008

IT was hardly their most convincing performance but there were no complaints from St George Illawarra coach Nathan Brown after the Dragons snuck home against Penrith at ANZ Stadium last night.

The Dragons headed into last night's match as favourite but certainly had to fight every inch of the way for the result after trailing the understrength and undermanned Panthers 12-0 at halftime.

It was only a field goal from Dragons' five-eighth Jamie Soward with eight minutes left on the clock that proved to be the difference between the two sides and ensured his team will still finish the weekend in the top eight.

Having now won five in a row and looking a shadow of the team that struggled at the start of the season, Brown said he had learned from recruitment manager Craig Young not to be too critical of how you win games.

"I said to 'Albert' a few weeks ago, winning is good fun" Brown said.

"Albert said 'I learned a long time ago that winning is better than losing.

"He says Albert few words but he gets his point across.

"Obviously to win five in a row is pleasing.

"We definitely would have lost it at the start of the year, that's for sure."

The lacklustre display was not the only concern for the Dragons with NSW captain and centre Mark Gasnier heading straight up the tunnel soon after full-time with a back problem.

It's also a worry for NSW with the Blues side for the State of Origin decider on July 2 to be selected on Tuesday morning.

Gasnier stuggled with a similar injury before Game II.

"Ever since I played with or coached Gaz Gaz he's had minor sorts of back problems," Brown said. "He'll have scans tomorrow."

The Panthers were entitled to feel a little aggrieved after finishing on the wrong end of a 9-6 penalty count and having several decisions go against them from referee Jared Maxwell late in the match.

It started when Penrith lost a scrum feed and had a blown penalty against them after video evidence uncovered that Dragons lock Ben Creagh had lost a ball because of a dangerous throw by rookie Masada Iosefa.

Moments later Penrith backrower Frank Pritchard was penalised for a high tackle on Gasnier even though the video evidence suggested the call was harsh.

Penrith coach Matthew Elliott lamented there had been several inconsistent rulings from Maxwell before suggesting he might not have been the only official at ANZ Stadium to lose his composure.

"We got a penalty against us when Frank Pritchard hit 'gas' on the hand," Elliott said.

"At the end, Junior Moors got hit around the eyeballs. He does not make a call. How does that happen? I do not know.

"I lost it in the box tonight. I had friends who lost it as well."

The match also ended after Penrith was controversially penalised for alleged interference following a long break by fullback Brett Morris Dragons although the replays suggested the decision had been tough.

The result leaves the Panthers stranded in 10th position and in danger of losing touch with the competition if other results go against them over the weekend.

With just over a minute to go and given Penrith stand-in fullback Jarrod Sammut had ended up with the ball, it killed off any hopes the Panthers had of staging one final raid.

Penrith's wretched run with injury continued after Penrith fullback Rhys Wesser was forced off the field with an abdominal tear early in the first half.

It was only last week against the Sydney Roosters that the Panthers lost four players to injury including hooker Luke Priddis (knee), centre Michael Jennings (ankle), prop Tony Puletua (ribs) and Josh Bateman (pectoral).

Wesser's departure was a savage blow, given the Penrith fullback threw a lovely pass for Trent Waterhouse to bust the line and then backed the Panthers' backrower up to score the opening try of the night.

Despite the loss, the Panthers still looked the better side in the opening 40 minutes and took a 12-0 lead into the break after Luke Lewis stepped his way back inside some soft goal-line defence.

The Dragons finally showed what they are capable of soon after play resumed when Jamie Soward Ben Creagh put into a hole and the Dragons lock stepped his way past replacement fullback Jarrod Sammut to plant the ball over the line.

Soward then helped to lock up the scores at 12-all when he chipped over the defence, regathered and then picked up Dragons winger Josh Morris in support who streaked away to score underneath the posts.

Ana Ivanovic seeks Wimbledon crown as queen of the court

June 21, 2008

The prosecution has waived the retirement by Justine Henin proved to be a perfect Ana Ivanovic in Paris and the World No1 plans to complete his succession at Wimbledon.

The Serbian has shown in Paris, she was the natural heir of Henin, the Belgian Livewire who stunned tennis by announcing his retirement at age 25 last month.

The 20-year Belgrade left Roland Garros with her first Grand Slam title, the world's top ranking and knowledge, it has the power, timing and movement to dominate the game.

"You just make sure you continue to do good things on the ground and play your matches, rankings and take care of themselves," said Ivanovic after Russia beat Dinara Safina at the Open de France final.

"I think I have a good chance (of winning Wimbledon)," said Ivanovic, who lost in the event champion Venus Williams in the semi-finals last year. "I worked very hard and this work brings results."

There are fewer guns to lose in the game of women in a state of shock Ivanovic, who missed the warm-up at Eastbourne this week in the abduction remains a muscle strain.

There is no Ivo Karlovic and Mario Ancic as threats hiding among women draw and Ivanovic is expected to increase the quarter-finals with ease.

There she could meet one of the Williams sisters, so dangerous on grass, even if they looked a shadow of their former same in Paris.

Venus, who has just turned 28 years, is seeded seventh and will play its 12th Wimbledon, has a 51-7 win loss record and won the big four times.

She and sixth seeded sister Serena, 26 and twice champion here, have the experience, power and guile on the grass to break the cartel of Eastern Europe.

If they overcome this hurdle, Ivanovic is seeded to face Russians Svetlana Kuznetsova and Maria Sharapova before a test second largest Serbian Jelena Jankovic rival.

Questions should be asked about the temperament Jankovic after his Grand Slam semi-final record fell to 0-4 with the defeat by Ivanovic in Paris. Kuznetsova, never past the last eight in London, is usually discovered by the fleet of more than a foothold on the slick surface.

Sharapova, winner in 2004, considered something, but a world No1 in Paris, giving away nearly 11 games by double faults and complaining of a shoulder injury Safina finally put her in his misery four rounds.

But she has experience of lifting the Rosewater Dish "and" evil of the loss suffered by the bludgeoning Safina, and with it his first rank, no doubt about his spur.

"My chances are just as good as everyone, that is all that takes on their chances," said Sharapova, who has chosen to remain out of Wimbledon warm-up events before his inclination.

France's Amélie Mauresmo is a shadow of the player who lifted the title in 2006 and working with a leg injury.

Ivanovic said in Paris that winning a Grand Slam is something she had dreamed of since I was a little child. "

"It is my interest to continue to work hard and win more of these trophies," she said.

Rafael Nadal equal Borg's record

Rafael Nadal wins again

Rafael Nadal equal Björn Borg's record of four consecutive victory for the French Open title by overloading the world number one Roger Federer in straight sets in the final at Roland Garros on Sunday.

The resounding 6-1 6-3 6-0 victory is also the first time since Borg success in 1980 that a player has won the event without a single drop rate in the entire tournament.

The Spaniard, two seeds, went into the fight as a favorite and proved far too huge for Federer and his relentless beat, superior touches of class and left his tireless running Erzrivalen with little chance, while all three sets unilaterally.

In fact, Federer was a shadow of his best and his alarming number of unforced errors and missed opportunities, life much easier for the 22-year-old Spaniard, there is no doubt, the "King of Clay".

Federer got the real class on grass

Federer got the real class on grass

June 16, 2008 Issue 1

World No 1 Roger Federer won his fifth title on the e713 000 (about R8 ,9-million) Halle ATP tournament here yesterday, beating Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber in straight sets.

Federer picked up his 59th consecutive victory on grass to see off Kohlschreiber 6-3, 6-4 in the traditional grasscourt warm-up for Wimbledon later this month, where he will bid to win sixth consecutive title.

The top seed from Switzerland has won here every year since 2003, with the exception of last year, when he did not compete.

"All week I did not lose my serve once that has never happened to me before," said the 26-year-old, who lost, nor a service and not the whole week.

The victory also came as a welcome relief after Federer humiliation at the hands of Rafael Nadal in the French Open final last weekend.

Although the 74-minute game Federer was the longest of the week, Kohlschreiber was powerless to stop him. He gave the German Kohlschreiber little chance and could only exercise his best tennis in a limited number of demonstrations.

But after his Roland Garros disappointment seven days before, Federer admitted that he has a break for Wimbledon and ignore Halle.

The competition for England seems a right cuff scrap between a natural leader, John Terry, and a more influential player, Steven Gerrard. Or so everyone thought.

Fabio Capello shock tactics to keep the team in the dark
This is not a joke: Fabio Capello is in England outside their comfort zone

During lunch yesterday, Capello stood up and announced: "The captain against France will be Rio Ferdinand." And sitting again. Do not worry. No explanation. As Jonathan Woodgate observed at the weekend: with his former coach of Real Madrid, it is a case of "my way or the highway." Capello The sight of all players in the field reporting bad for a convivial moment confirms suspicion that all believe they are on trial.

"We all tried, not only players," countered Capello. "We need to get back to be a great team that plays openly against any opponent. This is not to be tried, but the pride to wear the shirt." Capello is a challenge the players, stirring by the shaking.

The George V spa contains many treatments, but no guarantee of purging the system so radical Capello shock tactics. Terry and Gerrard know they must perform for every second of every minute of every international if they are to be reconsidered for the Captaincy long term.

"I'll turn masters," Capello promised. "I'll have a permanent captain of August [in preparation for the start of the 2010 World Cup qualifying in September]. Until then, Terry has a chance to be captain. "But then, Gareth Barry, Aston Villa, whose leader determined ball-winning and the intelligent use of possession is known to have impressed Capello.

If Gary Neville continued his welcome return from injury, gets his place Manchester United and then again joined the England fraternity, it could raise the cuff. No one knows. But make no mistake: Capello is deliberately foster insecurity to sharpen the edge of the blunted, tarnished Golden Generation.

Astucieuse, as England took the opportunity of Ferdinand moment of glory yesterday to send another message to the players: the history of bunk. If they delivered for Capello now, the achievement on and off the field, giving everything against quick-minded, fast-moving and opponents french then clear direction on the first page stigma, they have a chance.

Ferdinand made a case study in a timely manner. Expulsées of past squads alcopop induced madness, even for a tournament next to a drug test, the defender has matured and deserves his shot at redemption. "I know," said Capello strongly when we inevitably result of Ferdinand de transgressions. "But the past is the past. From what I saw in games I've been watching him play, and within five days that I had with him train me, I saw a very good professional . I think it can be a very good captain of England. "

Ferdinand is held in high esteem by management, not least Capello assistant Franco Baldini, who examined the defender of purchase for Roma during the player West Ham days. Those who expose Ferdinand to be handed wear an armband with such distinction by Billy Wright, Bobby Moore, Terry Butcher will remember and others should consider some realities. No member of the team, perhaps in most previous ones, not more varied in the community, many Prince's Trust appearances in the campaign against knife crime following the murder of Damilola Taylor and Stephen Lawrence.

High on a succession of Peckham, south London, Ferdinand became an impressive model. Equally important, the cuff means something to him and his pride in honour deducted him was palpable yesterday. Equally significantly, Ferdinand England must convince sceptics to argue that it is authentic captaincy equipment in the long term.

"A captain must be an example to follow in training and a leader during the game," noted Capello. "I wish it could be a model outside the game - in life - as well. It's very important, always. We must be role models when we are playing for England and when we play for our clubs. A Part of this rightly play and respect towards the referee and the public. "

Respect, respect, respect. The word on the timing of England Premier League followed in France. Capello has talked to his players the importance of restraint in emotional situations, but rejected the suggestion that Terry has been neglected after the Chelsea man irritating tendency to debate incident with all the arbitrators.

"I was not put under any pressure," said Capello. "All the decisions I made, technical or otherwise, were my decisions. My choice. I have my own eyes. I can understand things for myself. "The message was clear: FA Capello could ask to use the whistle Dixie, and he may wonder what Dixon has done for a reminder. Capello is Robo-Coach. His way or a highway.

Last night, the players have not an idea that started against France. Some of them could sleep easy, as David James, Ferdinand, Ashley Cole, Barry, Gerrard, Joe Cole and Wayne Rooney, knowledge of a shirt numbered 1-11 would be handed over to them at the Stade de France. Terry and Glen Johnson should also be included. But Frank Lampard to begin before midfielder Owen Hargreaves, a more natural anchorage accomplice Barry? Would Hollywood's David Beckham force only star of the Premier League, the north-west, David Bentley? Will Gerrard support Rooney? Capello has hinted that much, using a framework in which the Beatles once refined their muse to act on the merits of a Fab Two raised near Strawberry Fields. But as for Capello true intentions tonight, England glitterati simply do not know.

Capello about Beckham

Italy will inform this afternoon, shortly before boarding the bus to the Stade de France. England players are directed towards an age of enlightenment, first kept in the dark. Take Beckham. "Goldenballs" will receive his 100th cap today, but he must earn it.

Gianluigi Buffon kept Italy's Euro 2008 hopes alive after saving a late penalty against Romania Adrian Mutu, which could have seen them lifted after their opening two games.

Romania was a second half lead by Mutu on 55 minutes after a costly error of Gianluca Zambrotta, but Italy hit back just a minute later when veteran defender tapped home after a header by Giorgio Chiellini.

In a thrilling first half, Italy dominated, but Romania had the chance of their own to open the score, Mutu is denied by Gianluigi Buffon from close and Christian Chivu hit the post from a deflected free-kick.

Italy thought taken the lead on the stroke of half-time, but Luca Toni was unfortunate for his goal chalked off for offside.

And after Mutu and Panucci had scored in the second half, Mutu was given a golden opportunity to win for his side from the spot nine minutes from time, but could not find a way past Buffon.


Italy coach Roberto Donadoni made five changes to the starting line-up, but it failed to inspire the Azzurri, who are still winless after two games.

Fabio Grosso, Giorgio Chiellini, Simone Perrotta, Daniele De Rossi and Alessandro Del Piero all started, while the World Cup-winners Marco Materazzi and Gennaro Gattuso, who are slow in Bern on Monday, were among those omitted.

The Italians, heavy criticism after their flat display against the Dutch, showed a sense of urgency from the beginning and almost broke the deadlock in the eighth minute.

Del Piero the close-range header from Perrotta's cross went just wide of the near post.

In the 15th minute, Romania should have gone in front, but Mutu left the bone strike from the edge of the area was parried away by Buffon.

On the other hand, Toni Grosso latched on the cross, but his header went high over the bar and Romania hit back as Buffon was then forced to fully stretch to clear Gabriel Tamas' free-kick to the far post.

Italy almost fell behind in the 19th minute, with Cristian Chivu's free-kick deflected by Panucci, but restoration of the post, already beaten Buffon.

Romania were forced to replace their first midway through the first half, with Nicolae Dica replacing the injured Mirel Radoi.

Italy showed more determination and twice had the opportunity to take the lead, but both Del Piero and Toni headed wide for Romania goalkeeper Bogdan Lobont made a hand save to deny Toni heads of Alessandro Del Piero corner.

Neither coach made any substitutions after the restart and Italy picked up where they left off.

Finishing Touch

But disaster soon found for Italy. Gianluca Zambrotta the bad weather pass towards Buffon was intercepted by a determined Mutu, who showed great calm to fire past the goalkeeper and the silence of the Azzurri fans.

But it was not long before Donadoni men to hit back.

Chiellini latched Del Piero on the corner and headed towards the far post, where a non-Panucci came to poke the ball into the back of the net.

The goal inspired the Italians for once, because they put forward more aggressively, but they do not comply with finding a finishing touch.

Their best chance as the game approached about fell to De Rossi, who got his head on the ball closely, which Lobont into a spectacular save.

Italy continued to wave forward, but their efforts to clinch their first win on Swiss soil showed no avail.

But it could have been much worse if, as the game in the last 10 minutes, Panucci was seen have brought down Mutu as they tussled for a cross at the near post.

But Buffon kept their Euro 2008 hopes alive, stopping Mutu late penalty with an agile save which saw the ball rebound from a hands and feet before heading to corner.

Euro 2008 match betting savjete-12/6/08
June 13th, 2008 by joke

This is a Group C 'Group of death' games today, and there is no doubt that today we will see some great games. So far we have done pretty well with the winning Bets (not so good with a lot of fun, although bets), hopefully winning will continue. If you just joined us (where have you been?, I hope that you have not been watching Big Brother!) Make sure to sign up on Betfair to place your bets on, and you will get a free £ 25 Bet offer. See below, or check out the banners.

Holland v France-Well, this is a tale of two contrasting performances, Holland played some great football, scoring a fantastic 2. objective and France are just poor all over the pitch, not really threatening up front. The two teams have played 21 times, with 9 wins for the Dutch and the French winning 8 times. Fortunately for the Dutch this match can not go to penalties as France knocked them in Euro'96. If France play like they played in their first game, then they will have a chance, surely this game will be a great performance from the French players?

Euro 2008 betting tip-should not underestimating French and in this match, we see how they got their act together in the World Cup after a terrible start, but without world class players such as Zidane May they find difficult. It will not be an easy game for the Dutch and unlike teams such as Romania, they will not be defending most of the match to keep a clean sheet. I will still be a fallback on the Dutch win this match and the surplus of 2.8 on Betfair, but as an actual surplus suggest, it will be a very close match.

UPDATE: 4-1 as the game! This is the game on the tournament so far, the Dutch are uppermost on the form today and if the French removed their chances then the result could line of reached double figures. Thankfully this game won and we should bet on any losses are covered from Italy match.

Italy v Romania-It's all in the game for the world champions today, they must win to stand a chance of qualifying. Romania will look to frustrate just as those against France. Italy looked like missing and creativity in midfield, only if Totti and pulling strings. From the previous games, it does not look too good for Romania, from 14 games, Italy beat them 10 times. In Euro 2008 Italy won 2-0 against the Romanians in the quarter finals.

Euro 2008 betting tip-Romania to the massive surplus of 7.0 on Betfair to beat Italy. Italy must win this match to have the opportunity to qualifying. I know that 'having' / 'must' win that is very different to winning the game and Italy, although the lack of creativity in midfield will be the basis for the surplus of 1.7 to beat Romania today. Also, I go for a little fun bet on Luca Toni to score at any time and surplus of 2.42. See Betfair.

UPDATE: Losing bet, Italy rode their luck at the end with a penalty saved, he could out of Euro 2008. In the end he lost 1-1 draw us back and supporting Italy win this game. As I said before we win the game does not mean that you will get the game, maybe I took his advice next time!

Euro 2008 match betting savjete-12/6/08
June 12th, 2008 by joke

Well last night was really nice to watch, two teams fighting for the ultimate prize…… it's the final Apprentice! … I football was not bad either!

Austria in Poland-two teams have played each other in a total of 7 times, with Austria winning 3 times and Poland winning the remaining games. Both teams have never played in Euro before and will be looking to get their first ever goals in this tournament. Austria has played better than expected in the first match against Croatia, as well as their co-hosts Switzerland, a small fortune, in his first game and they can be picked up on at least one point.

Euro 2008 betting tips: Well we know that these two teams has never drawn against each other and Poland have scored three goals in his last four matches against Austria. So what can we say? A dull 0-0 draw of course! But not really, on the basis of these statistics lets go with more than 2.5 goals in this match on a beautiful surplus of 2.6 on Betfair. We also go to small 3-1 and 3-2 wins in Poland, just in case that history repeat itself! (surplus of 44 and 61 wow!)

Update-Well, at the end was a 1-1 draw! It is not enough to make us the best destinations bet that I thought would be o. But, fortunately we went on mali lines as a result and, it seems as history does not always repeat itself in football! Nothing is why we are working quite nicely with the betting so far and that is good to learn that in order to be a bit of fun bets until they are held mali.

Croatia v Germany-Croatia do not have a very good record against Germany, with only 1 wins from 7 games were played each other. While Germany looked comfortable in the last match against Poland, Croatia has made to work hard in the games against co-hosts. Although the play against the team for the support from home is never easy and Bilic will no doubt look for major improvements against the tournament favourites.

Euro 2008 betting tips: Germany are the favorites to win this match, I am in two minds about this game, so you do not think I will be the basis a win or lose. Lets go in the form of Podolski score again at any time and the first goal scorer and surplus of 3.25 and 7.2 on the Betfair.

Update-Well, this was the first big brawl in the tournament, Croatia 2-1 Germany. A great game to watch (unless you are fan Getmany and / or Schweinsteiger fan) and full marks for Bilic for his tactics on the spot. I did not want to go against Croatia in the team I tipped win Euro 2008, so I tipped them to win! Podolski is in great shape and won anytime scorer bet on Betfair to surplus of 3.25, if only he got the first goal… oh well, there's always next time!

So round two of qualifying matches. After last night was a fantastic match with Spain and Russia, the question everyone is asking is…… was the Russian nadomjestak who was replaced after 22 minutes of play took off because of fatigue?… No No really, this is… Can Spain finally meet expectations?

Czech Republic v Portugal-No doubt this game could be a potential cracker. Of the eleven were twice played each other, the Czechs have won four matches and Portugal have won three. In the last two teams played each other in the Euro 1996, and the Czechs won that match 1-0.

Euro 2008 betting free tip: Czechs looked sluggish in midfield and I do not really create much in the first game, but with Baros coming to the lineup could change. I think that would be Portugeuse will be too fast for this Czech team, although longer stays in the game, 0-0 is more risk of Portugal will get a goal, leaving them open to counter-attack. View of the Czech team that started last game, I do not see them scoring more than the target. Based on the first game, then I will go back to Portugal win that match in excess of 1.85, may be bet on the 0-0 scoreline is currently in excess of 7.8, just in case Chech is fine goalkeeping form today.

Update-At the end of Portugal were too strong for the Czechs and we were worthy 3-1 winners. Just in case you want to know, a player named Ronaldo scored 2 goal for Portugal, I've never heard of him before, it seems that love to play football in Spain…. A winning bet comes in for us once again, even surplus of 1.85, it was worth it!

Switzerland v Turkey-hosts will be looking to bounce back against Turkey and if they had a bit of luck on their side they can be snatched from at least one point in their opening game. Unfortunately, the Swiss captain Alex Frei will take no further part. However, Turkey was also missing a key player in Emre through injury. Turkey has history on their side in this tie with 7 wins in fourteen matches.

Euro 2008 betting free tip: In front of their home fans Switzerland will certainly give this game a go, but I'm asking: Do they have enough fire power to the front end?. I do not think that would really threaten Turkey, lay, Switzerland win this game is pretty good and surplus value of 2.28.

Another update-winning bet, Turkey wins with late late goal that sealed only our already winning bet. If only I bet on Turkey to win then that would be even more of a profit! But some, but is glad that we are winning the second bet!

Euro 2008 tips klađenje-10/6/08
June 10th, 2008 by joke

This is the final first round group match games and today we have 2004's surprise winners Greece and Spain one of the tournament favorites to play Sweden and Russia.

Greece v Sweden

Greece does not seem to have any injury problems for this game and 36 years old Henrik Larsson is expected to lead the front line once again for Sweden. The two teams have played each other only 6 times in the past and Greece were unbeaten against the Swedes in the last 5 times they played.

Euro 2008 betting tip: This can be very defensive game, especially if Greece play their solid and organised the game, which they did in 2004. I will go for under 2.5 goals at 1.45 odds especially on the basis of the previous games in Euro 2008. (which probably means that this is a destination !!!).

UPDATE: Well, Greece never really wanted to come out to play football, and even surplus of 1.45 unders is worth a good bet. Greece May fans do not agree, but it was good to see the best football tonight. Sweden looked good, one of my four tips to win Euro 2008 (see my post before the tournament).

Spain v Russia

Russia has some problems up front, with Pogrebnyak missing through injury, and all present Arshavin suspended for the first 2 groups of the game. Spain have only a few minor injury problems. Spain have lost only once in Russia than 8 times they played each other.

Euro 2008 betting tip: Spain are the big favourites for this game on approx 1.75, I will be going with a small bet on the draw because of the Hiddink factor in excess of 3.7.

UPDATE: Well that's happy I recommended mali bet on this match, Hiddink factor just was not enough for Russia to get a result and Spain ahead of worthy 4-1 scoreline. But do not rule out Russia from qualifying just yet, they showed some flashes, the glow that could get through them, it'sa shame Arshavin will miss two games.

Euro 2008 tips klađenje-9/6/08
June 9th, 2008 by joke

So far during the tournament in every game we have seen all the favorites win their matches, under 2.5 goals scored and 4 clean sheets with only one team scoring. So what is this information tell us about betting on Group C 'group of death'? Not a lot! Group C should bring us some of the best matches of Euro 2008, as the tournament is really lacking until now is thrilling match with a load of goals, perhaps in France, a match will result in this?

Today is:

Holland vs Italy

France vs Romania

I will mainly concentrate on the match France today, I want to see Holland win today, although it may see Italy winning this match by 1-0.

France-France vs Romania have very few injury problems, Henry appears to be missing for Romania game with maybe Viera and Ribery. Ribery is a player I think France will miss most, a lot is a good game come to him and if he does not play then Romania could take at least one point. The furthest, Romanians have ever received in the euro was fourth finals in 2000.

Euro 2008 Betting tip-France is missing a lot of potential key players and Romania have never won the opening match in Euro. Romania are on Betfair massive 5.5 and 5.0 on the William Hill win this match, but I'm not sure if they have what it takes to pick up all three points. Lets go with a draw 3.4 currently on Betfair or put France at 1.9 inequality.

UPDATE: Well, the winning bet number 4 comes in for us! It was very exciting few moments in this game (except for the end of the game, of course!), And I will take a boring game and winning bet through exciting any day. On the surplus of 3.4, which is the largest winning surplus tipped so far in the tournament, lets hope there are many more of them come. I had a feeling for the 0-0 scoreline, if only I backed that too! So now we can relax and look at potential cracking 2. game (or animal lovers can be obtained and watch Springwatch on the BBC 2).

Poland captain Maciej Żurawski expects Germany i

Poland captain Maciej Żurawski expects Germany is in their best for Sunday's Group B opener of two teams - but the striker insists he and his team-mates have been "better" the game is Wörthersee Stadium, Klagenfurt.

The Germans have been installed as clear favourites to win the group and has chosen out of the tournament as potential winners, but when the 31-year old Larissa forward Żurawski fully expects Joachim Löw's team have the ball, he is confident his own team's ability. "We respect Germany, they are an excellent team, but we are also aware of our value and potential team," he said. "We know a lot about what the Germans can do, and in such a way that they make and we are prepared to do so. What is important for us is connected to the plan we have done and make sure that we are doing things that we want to do."

Qualifying album
Poland qualified UEFA EURO 2008 ™ is an impressive style, finishing top of their group before the Portuguese, the working group in which they were rejected 2-1, Chorzow, but Żurawski admits that Poland need to move that the form is a big stage. "I can guarantee that we will go out and try to win," he said. "If we want to win we have to play the same way as we did in the matches against the Portuguese are acceptable, we have to reproduce the same type of performances here. We certainly have hopes that Germany is a day off. I expect them to be excellent, but I still think that we have an even better However, the game well they play on. "

Past memories
The match will raise memories of the meeting between two teams for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, which Poland lost 1-0. Żurawski, however, which had been one of the many players in the current squad has played in that match, sees things differently. He said: "Well, I do not like going back to the past, in particular the World Cup, because the situation is different," Żurawski said. "A couple of years have elapsed since then, and this is a completely different tournament. I believe that we do things as well as we can, training sessions and everything looks good. Everyone is looking well and is in good form and I believe that we will have to demonstrate that the pitch tomorrow. "

History of the game> Origins

Melbourne was the nascent city was built on the wealth, the 1850s Gold Rush by the Australian football the first time in 1858. As in other areas of British settlement during the 19th century, cricket become a priority during the summer sport. Concerned about the off-season fitness, cricketer Thomas Wentworth Wills (1835-80), who was born in Australia but educated at Rugby School England-where he captained, the cricket team and excellence in football believed that a football club should be formed to his teammates fit during the winter. Melbourne Cricket Club agreed with the proposal Wills, and since there were no standardized football codes at the time, appointed a committee to draw up the rules. Melbourne and Geelong football clubs was founded in 1858 and 1859, and are two of the oldest football clubs in the world. The agreed rules, which the Committee on May 17, 1859, was a compromise between them is a series of English in public schools, particularly in Winchester, Harrow, and Rugby. The players were dealt with the ball, but did not push beyond what is necessary to open it. In 1866 H.C.A. Harrison (1836-1929), the cousin of Wills, rewrote the rules. These rules, there is no limit on the number of players, even though the 1880-first century, the 20 men Friday the team became the standard.

Concerned about the possibility of injury on the hard Australian grounds, the players were reluctant to commit themselves to combat it and hacking (kicking or tripping an opponent's) rules of the Rugby School game, and hacking is prohibited. Distinctive aspects of Australian football quickly appeared. As soon as the provision was made that the players who have been invited to, or "marked" the ball cleanly in the air were given a free kick. Players may also retain possession of the ball, while running, but after some of the dispute was agreed in 1865 that the player with the ball had to bounce it out of turf at least every 10 meters (33 feet). Most are essential, and in contrast to those of other sport of football, there was no offside rule, which meant that the players of each team were behind and in front of the ball during play. By 1874 players are no longer placed by making the ball between the goal posts, but the result has been kicking the ball through them.

Australian football also developed a unique series of objectives, which are composed of two major objectives accompanied by two shorter "in the back," posts. The centre bounce umpires used to start games and restart the game after the goal had been launched in 1891 and is also still a unique Australian football. Goal umpires were first mentioned in 1874-the accounts of the game. The practice, with the objective article's waving a flag to signal the objective began to Tasmania in 1884 and adopted in Victoria in 1886.

The game expanded rapidly in 1870 and the'80s. In the'70s, the matches between Melbourne and Carlton football clubs attracted as many as 10000 spectators, who at the time, watched for free. Spectators are often encroached on the surface of gambling, and this led to the enclosure criteria for ease of play. The first facility was built in particular, the Australian football to use appeared in 1876 on land leased by Carlton, Melbourne University. The first Carlton-Melbourne game on the ground has attracted 5000 spectators. By the mid-'80s crowds approaching 34000 were in the match between the leading clubs.

May 7, 1877, representatives of the Albert Park, Carlton, East Melbourne, Essendon, Geelong, Hotham, Melbourne, St Kilda football clubs met in a Victorian Football Association (VFA) "the promotion and expansion of football throughout the colony" and the organization of intercolonial matches. In 1870 more than 125 clubs appeared in Melbourne, and the other 60 senior clubs to set up the rest of Victoria. A regular schedule of matches has been developed; additional grounds had been fenced, and the VFA clubs will be able to charge admission.

The game continued to spread throughout the colonies. In 1877 the South Australian Football Association is formed. Tasmania accepted rules of VFA in 1882, and in 1885 the Western Australian Football Association has been set up. Despite these achievements, the game struggled to gain a foothold in edit parts of Australia. The first game was held in Sydney in 1877, but the Rugby, the imperial connections, was popular in the 1890s. A similar process took place in Queensland and New Zealand. The great distances that separated colonies and the capitals meant that the regular competition between clubs in different areas, it was not possible, and in fact, the first is participation in inter-team Victorian main competition did not occur until 1982. However, because of road games between the Victorian teams were often only a tram ride away, many of the fans can go to all of their team's games, which is given for the period at low cost.

Back to the courts "Chak Bruno Norris"

After an injury in one of his subsequent returns to the courts Bruno aka "Chak Norris," after his speedy recovery from his tear, with everything back to show his followers that his flojisima acting in his last tournament besides his rival Chelo aka "Patrick Rafter was far superior throughout the match, was due to that post because he was not bothering the left and play the best. Although his position in the ranking is not very favourable, is in a position desastroza we are not running for not lowering the image of Chak but to have an idea this below players like the endless Angelito, Sebastian "fat "Magellan and many more because as we mentioned this very bottom, thinks it can improve its image and above all else improve their tennis.
This is the topic this week at the club returns from a player who knew how to be q was in the elite of this club, prominent players in games against struggling magician Chelo aka "Patrick Rafter," "bomber", Greg Chelo Rusedzci and others, hopefully return to the first plans.

The Chelo aka "Patrick Rafter" falls versus fabian 6-3 6-3 and lost the crown!

In the first match of the afternoon Saturday at 15:00 is the disputed meeting between Chelo aka "Patrick Rafter" vs. Fabian party which began as usual 40 minutes later by cello that was delayed shape with some chubby by the Rambla .
As we say "forment" the cello arrived 40 minutes late and in a game quite accessible to fabian 6-3 6-3 in the office on Sept. 2 and 2 hours party.
In the first part of the match was the cello with a draw quite the same flojito fabian take and scored a few winners.
It was also noticed a drive that the cello was missing as if it shortens the arm of APOC to leave many balls into the net and reach the crash racket against the fence of the club demonstrating powerlessness and anger.
As the winner fabian is what I notice very solid background committing some silly mistakes because of the devolution but with a powerful drive and a good draw responded by putting the cello!.
Chelo strove to maximize at certain times to achieve beat Fabian but never achievement. With this victory Fabian won the title that had defied the cello to win today.
We recall the Dechen today as the historic view that the cello presenting a tube of balls in the courts for the first time .... well you the cello jugastes but equal comistes in the courts will be the next challenge in some other Mc - kuey .....
