FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter spoke at length about the challenges facing the game in 2011 and beyond. In doing so he discussed the FIFA Ballon d'Or 2010, the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™, women's football, refereeing and the Task Force Football 2014, among other issues. FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter: Last year was a World Cup year and it's no surprise that two of the three candidates should play for world champions Spain. As for Argentina's Lionel Messi, no one can deny he's an exceptional player. Spain's Vicente del Bosque is also in there as one of the three nominees for coach of the year. Brazil usually have a few candidates in the frame. Why do you think they're missing this time around? There are some Brazilians up for the FIFA/FIFpro World XI, but they're mostly defenders. That's a little bit of a surprise perhaps, but it's just a reflection of Brazil's approach at South Africa 2010. They played a European game based around a formidable defence comprising the likes of Julio Cesar, Maicon, Lucio, Juan and Michel Bastos. The three nominees for the FIFA Ballon d'Or are all relatively small in size. What do you think that tells us? That anyone can play football and that you don't necessarily have to be big and strong. That's always been the case, though. Just look at strikers like Gerd Muller and Uwe Seeler, Diego Maradona or Jean-Pierre Papin, who weren't very big players either. South Africa 2010 is still fresh in the memory and now 2014 is looming on the horizon. Yes. The World Cup will be taking place in a little over three years. The preliminary draw will be held on 30 July and there's still a lot of work to be done in terms of infrastructures. There's no time to waste. Coaches are professional now and so are players, and there's no reason why referees shouldn't be either.FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter The next FIFA World Cup is being played in Brazil. Is it a case of football coming home? I'm delighted the tournament's going back to South America for the first time since 1978, when there were only 16 teams. Now there are 32 and the World Cup has taken on a whole new dimension since then. No matter where it is held, though, the World Cup is so big that our partners in both television and marketing will follow us anywhere. You've talked before about the social role of the FIFA World Cup. What will that involve in Brazil exactly? Our goal in Brazil is to create infrastructures in the provinces. A lot of the population live in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, but at the next World Cup we'll be going further north and to Manaus in the state of Amazonia. It's an emerging and very multicultural country with 200 million inhabitants, although there is still poverty as well. Nevertheless, I've no doubt the legacy of the World Cup will help in that respect too.
Brazil 2014 aside, the year ahead promises to be a busy one. There are competitions in four different confederations in 2011: the CONCACAF Gold Cup, the AFC Asian Cup in Qatar, the Copa America in South America and the African Nations Championship. And then we have five FIFA World Cup competitions: the Women's World Cup, the U-17, U-20 and Beach Soccer World Cups and the Club World Cup. So we're going to be seeing a lot of good football this year.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has said that the 2022 World Cup in Qatar will be played in the summer as originally planned and discarded the idea of co-hosting the event with neighbouring countries.
Blatter, reiterating comments made by FIFA two weeks ago, said there were no plans to stage a winter World Cup and any request to do so would have to come from the Qatari hosts who have already said they plan to stage the event in summer.
"Everything is settled now for summer and with all 64 matches in the territory of Qatar," he told the BBC in an interview.
"In the bidding documents it was clearly established that the executive committee reserved the right to change anything in the bidding process, but here in this case it must come from Qatar."

This World Cup has indeed excited our people and inspired them with a lot of hope. It has unleashed the energy and creativity of all sectors of our society. This soccer world cup has led to the delivery of infrastructure like the stadia, roads, airports, communication systems etc. Such infrastructure created jobs, contributed to the economy and to transformation. But above all, it boosted the morale of the nation, improved our image internationally and contributed immensely towards social cohesion and nation building.Soud africa 2010 is a pride to all africans. said Agent Abdou.
Samuel Eto'o's status as one of the world's foremost footballers was strengthened recently when he was named as the FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2010's oustanding player. FC Internazionale Milano's in-form striker earned the nomination of the FIFA Technical Study Group (TSG), who rewarded his outstanding performances with the adidas Golden Ball and the TOYOTA Award previously won by the likes of Kaka, Wayne Rooney and Lionel Messi. adidas Golden Ball and TOYOTA Award: Samuel Eto'o (Internazionale's Cameroonian No9 emerged as a worthy and popular winner of the tournament's most prestigious individual award. Throughout, Eto'o oozed class, working tirelessly and effectively for the Italian giants despite operating in a more withdrawn, left-sided role to the central position in which he first found fame. Unselfishness was perhaps the defining feature of this African icon's performances at UAE 2010, illustrated by his involvement in laying on three of Inter's six goals and typified in the magnificent pass that laid on Goran Pandev's deadlock-breaker in the final. Eto'o followed up that assist with a superb goal of his own and while his team-mates rejoiced with the trophy, he showed his human side by taking time to congratulate and commiserate with TP Mazembe Englebert's staff and players. it is noticed that Agent Abdou had a talk with him regarding the aword in Abu Dhabi.the media said Agent Nuhu is having relations with international players>
adidas Silver Ball: Dioko Kaluyituka (TP Mazembe Englebert) Rafael Benitez singled out TP Mazembe's explosive No15 as the biggest threat to Internazionale's hopes of lifting the trophy, and no wonder. Kaluyituka had been outstanding throughout the African champions' fairy tale run to the final, tormenting opposition defences with his pace, power and close control, not to mention scoring an outstanding goal in the 2-0 semi-final win over Sport Club Internacional.
adidas Bronze Ball: Andres D'Alessandro (Sport Club Internacional) The Argentinian playmaker arrived in Abu Dhabi with a reputation as O Colorado's key player and justified that status despite the Brazilians' disappointing third-place finish. Thrilling only in flashes in the semi-final defeat to TP Mazembe, D'Alessandro was back to his dazzling best in the third-place play-off, capping an outstanding individual display with one of the goals of the tournament.
Agent abdou said some children in africa prefer to play football than school. some children goes to football center like KSA to be come feuture football stars many children now dream to become football strars,like sameul eto'o Didier Drogba,and Michel essien. they all hope to play in football clubs like FC Barcelona. how ever thier dreams seams hard to realize but i belive some of these young africans street football players they are tallented.and some dreams are realized by the grace of God allmighty. some of these street players are found in Yaounde Cameroon Some are in Abijan. some are in northern africa. but acording to my own view we have two african countries that have best street football players,Cameoon,and Ivory cost.
It was the moment that many young Africans football fanatics had been eagerly waiting for: the first final of the Street Football League. 128 young people got together in early July at the Stanza Bopape football ground in Mamelodi in the South African province of Gauteng. 16 out of 200 teams from the region had qualified for the finals of the Street Football League, which had been launched in February 2008 by the Gauteng North Sports Council and streetfootballworld – a project of the German Youth Football Foundation. The idea behind streetfootballworld and its global network of over 60 organizations is development through football.
