World Cup Qualifying Match Results – 8 June 2009

Welcome the First 4 Nations Qualifying for the World Cup 2010

After the recent round of Qualifying Matches for the 2010 World Cup, Fours Nations have booked their place for the 2010 World Cup to be held in South Africa.

Netherlands became the first European nation to qualify for the World Cup. Playing in a relatively easier group the Dutch have won all of their Qualifying encounters. With the 2-1 win at Iceland on 6th June they cemented their berth.

Australian defense has been quite remarkable during all of their qualifying matches but it is yet to be tested against the other European and South American giants.

Japan qualified for the World Cup 2010 for the second time beating Uzbekistan by a lone goal from Shinji Okazaki. Japan came second after Australia in the Group 1 of the Asian Qualifiers owing to a poor goal difference.

South Korea will be making their seventh consecutive appearance in the World Cup following their complete 2-0 victory over UAE. The Koreans didn’t lose any game and have scored all high 11 goals in their march to the World Cup.

England thrash Kazakhstan 4-0

Wayne Rooney, Gareth Barry, Emile Heskey and Frank Lampard struck for England as England inched closer to World Cup qualification. England has now dominated the group with 6-0 win / loss record. Heskey paired up with Rooney to forge a winning strike duo for England  which we might be seeing more as the tournament progresses. Now a veteran caimpaigner for England, Heskey has tipped Rooney to become the best striker in the World.

World Cup 2010 Official Anthem by AKON ??

According to some news floating around the Blogosphere and over some other sites like Mirror.co.uk, American R&B

Akon

Aliaune Damala Bouga Time Puru Nacka Lu Lu Lu Badara AKON

singer/songwriter/producer AKON might be recording for the Official 2010 Soccer World Cup Theme song.

In an interview with the Mirror.co.uk he said, “I’ve been hired as musical director for the World Cup. I will be overseeing the World Cup anthem and music at the ceremonies and I’m off to South Africa this week for meetings. I love soccer so it’s a great honour.”

FIFA is still to announce its pick for the Official Soccer World Cup Anthem and I have a feeling it might be going in for some African flavour. AKON is of Senegalese origin with a strong South African connection, hence a case for him.

Lets just hope that going against the history of some lousy selection for the Anthmes in previous world cups, FIFA picks a “Gem” this time around.
