Foot ball fever is all around again. At the semis stage of the world cup, many expected and favos getting knocked is certainly a new sign in the game. Starting from the so called world number 1 team,Brazil. It was more than a disappointment to them. Being the last wc for Ronaldo he could not do much. He was far unable to shut the mouths who pointed out him to be unfit to play. He was almost playing as before but his sharpness was not with him. Roberto Carlos annouces retirement. Brazil was strongest on papers, but were unlucky also did play to their fame. Czech Republic and Netherlands exit without much sound. Czech gets humiliating knock from Ghana. Netherlands looses to Portugal. England failed to do good. Lampard, Rooney fail to play their best. Rooney was also given red card against Portugal. Beckham resigns from captaincy. Argentina looses the game in an undeserved manner.Riquelme, Crespo were sustituted well before. No Saviola, no Messi. They had shown symbols for fighting till last but Germans played well at the shootout. All the above teams are one in top ten teams of the world. I don’t want to say much about France. Zidane, Henry and Vieira are the only players to play in that team. They had to go out before last 16 but were very lucky to reach semis. Italy get into semis unexpected. Germany and Portugal deserve to be in the finals, according to me. Lets wait and watch whats next.
Wimbeldon: As before Roger Federer is at his best. His match against Henman was eye-catching. He proved why he is called emperor. Andy Roddick exits at round 3. Sad about Aggasi. He meets Nadal and departs. He gives a emotional speech about his last wimbeldon. What a return from him! Ferrero goes out. Roger Federer, Marcos Baghdatis, Lleyton Hewitt,Rafael Nadal, Radek Stepanek and others proceed from 4th round.
West Indies tour: India wins the last test and also the series. It creates history by winning a test series in WI after 35 long years. Also first test series win outside India after 20 years. I consider Rahul Dravid and Anil Kumble being the resposibility for this victory. In India cricket is the game given most importance. Dravid scores: 49,62 in first test.146 in 2nd, 22, 68 in 3rd and 81, 68 in the last test. When all the bats failed it was Dravid The Wall stood without a crack. Not to forget other good performance by Laxman and Jaffer. Kumble took 22 wickets, also batted with high confidence. Great performance by him.
