I studied drawing at the sCOOL for many years, but I did not like it very much. My favorite subject in school was the Olympic sports. I remember when I was a kid, and I played football with my friends. My best memory was when El Salvador, a small Central American country at the World Cup qualifying 1982.I do not think, 'ES' defeat of Mexico, the sixth in the FIFA World Cup in 1970.
Between 1978 and 1989 El Salvador had one of the worst civil warin the modern history of Latin America.Unfortunately were more than 70,000 people killed by anti-communist dictatorships and Marxist rebels.
Certainly, I was a big fan of soccer in El Salvador. I once said: "IT is ganará el Mundial (El Salvador to win the FIFA 1982 World ..!). However, the only thing I remember it well, that Hungary beat El Salvador 10-1 at the World Cup in Spain. .. ES … Good Bye!
Like many people, I think that soccer"Passion" in the world since 1910. When Cameroon, French ex-colonies in Africa, his first gold medal at the XXVII Olympic Summer Games in Australia (2000) … Yaounde, was the capital of Cameroon, days.Cameroon carnival was the second African country to win Olympic …
Unfortunately, Liberia was the terror of the Third World … From 1980 to 2005 more than 180,000 people have been killed by dictatorships and AIDS … At present, poverty is a plague … His percapitaProfit of $ 80 per year is one of the worst in the history of the world. Hundreds of thousands of Liberian people fled the country. Like neighboring Sierra Leone, the African country one of the highest number of orphans in Africa in relation to its population.
Fortunately, the home of Liberia George Manneh Oppong Ousman Weah, one of the world's most famous and charismatic players. In 1995, FIFA chose George Weah as the best footballer of the Year.Certainly, he became the "World Star" inThe 1990s.Like Iman (former super-model from Somalia) and Dikembe Mutombo (basketball player from the Democratic Republic of Congo), George Weah is a symbol on the African continent. Since then he has a big contribution to human development in Liberia. Currently, UNICEF Ambassador George Weah.
He captained the national team for many years, but his country did not qualifity for the FIFA world. Ironically, Liberia was not one of the best teams from Africa in the 20thCentury.
In 1994, Bolivia `s qualification for the finals was one of the surprises in the third world sport. Under the direction of Marco Etcheverry, Bolivia beat Brazil 2-0 in the pre-World Cup in La Paz, Bolivia's capital. I remember that Etcheverry was known for his nickname "El Diablo", was the idol of millions of Bolivians.It, one of the greatest sporting moments in the history of Bolivia since 1978. At that time, Bolivia, under the leadership of Guadalupe Yanez, qualifying forFIBA Women's World Championship in Seoul, South Korea's capital.
In my opinion, the FIFA World Cup a world without borders. Ferenc Puskás was born April 1926 in Budapest, Hungary, made his debut in a friendly against Austria at the age of fifteen … in the last century, represented both Puskas of Hungary, a former communist state, and Spain. At that time, Santa Maria played for Uruguay and Spain. Traditionally, American players have the Latin American and AfricanRoots: Hugo Perez (El Salvador), Tab Ramos (Uruguay), Claudio Reyna (Argentina), Jozy Altidore (Haiti) and Freddy Addu (Ghana).
Today, Gerald Asamoah was born in Accra (Ghana), is one of the best footballers in Germany at the moment. While Alex (Alessandro) Santos was born in Brazil, is a Japanese player.Santos played many times in Japan, including appearances at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
I personally believe that this century will be an era of 'sports miracle "in the ThirdWorld. Cote d `Ivoire, best described as Ivory Coast, the qualification for the FIFA World 2006 announced … Angola made its debut in Germany … Trinidad-Tobago, made his debut in the World Cup … Paraguay won the silver medal in soccer at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens.
