Menezes Plans on Calling Up Ronaldinho for the 2014 FIFA World Cup

After a Ronaldinho-less 2010 FIFA World Cup at South Africa, Mano Menezes, the new Seleção coach, revealed his plans on calling up Ronaldinho on 2014 FIFA World Cup that will take place in Brazil.

"I think I will call Ronaldinho. I have seen him play well and he is adapting to his new role," the coach told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Ronaldinho, a two-time FIFA World Player of the Year (2004 and 2005)was not called up on the 23-man squad for the Brazil national team in South Africa, mid this year. Dunga, Brazil's coach for the South Africa World Cup, felt Ronaldinho wouldn't "play for the team". He thought that Ronaldinho's stardom doesn't fit with what he wanted the team to be like.

Brazil lost against the Netherlands on the quarter finals by a goal (2-1). The game left the Brazilian players and fans alike crying.

*On my opinion, Brazil would at least qualify for the 2010 World Cup Semi Finals, if not win the Cup, if Ronaldinho is with the squad. I can't even believe Dunga left Ronaldo, Adriano or even Neymar off the team.

Simon McMenemy, the New Philippine National Football Team Coach

New coach and new beginning but the same passion, determination and eagerness to strive!

Simon McMenemy, a 32-year old Brit is the new coach for the Philippine's National Football Team. A young and inspired individual which envisions football will be embraced by Filipinos. He's backed! Support!

It's time that we Filipinos try football than basketball simply because football is in the ground so we need not to be tall.

I saw this video, out of boredom. I really don't know how talented Filipinos can be with this beautiful game. If Paulino Alcántara did it then, there is no way we cannot do it now! I am beginning to love Philippine football! Cheers!

The man from the Philippines, Paulino Alcántara.

Team Philippines at Homeless World Cup

Another football post!

The 2010 Homeless World Cup commercial.

Representing the Philippines are twins Hammid and Abdula Pasion (Laguna), brothers Mark and Lexter Maravilla (Quezon), best friends Michael Quinlat and Toniemark Arinal (Talisay City), Revect Lagarto (Manila), and Leopoldo Aragon (Bacolod), together with coaches, Ronald Patulin and Elmer Bedia.

Team Philippines bagged the Host Cup trophy after beating the Team Norway in a grueling 4-3 physical match. The Host Cup is a play off among teams ranked 25 - 32 after the Secondary stage. So that puts Team Philippines on the 25th spot of all nations! A progression from the last year's Cup, which the team landed on the 29th position.
