The FIFA world Cup 2014 to be held in Brazil is all gearing up and preparations are being planned out for the big event.

For the 1st time in 64 years, Brazil has got a chance to show their love for football and they are surely going to make it a big event which will be remembered till the commencement of the next world cup.

The football fans of Brazil are quite excited about the fact and are waiting in anticipation for the start of the World Cup 2014 event.

One can easily vouch for the fact that football is finally going home. Although many will deny saying that football originated in Britain but none can deny the fact that the game was perfected by Brazil. The craze for the game can be seen within small children as well juggling the ball with their feet and head.


Ricki Herbert has signed a new contract with the New Zealand football Association that will see him be the manager of the New Zealand national football team up until the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

New Zealand are one of the teams trying to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, which will be held in Brazil.

Ricki Herbert has been extraordinarily impressive for the New Zealanders, as he has not only been able to sustain his position as the manager of the New Zealand national football team since 2005, but has also taken the team to the 2010 FIFA World Cup as well. It was the first occasion when New Zealand qualified for the FIFA World Cup.


Tony Fernandes, the owner and chairman at English Premier League club Queens Park Rangers, has moved to quell rumors that his side was attempting an audacious bid for wayward Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez.

The QPR chairman says that there is no basis to these rumours and the one thing that would prove to be a major stumbling block if they did make a move for Tevez are his astronomical wages, which a middle of the table side like Queens Park Rangers would find extremely hard to pay.


There might be quite a disappointment for Manchester City as Kolo Toure will not be able to play for their next game as they will be starting their training session for Ivory Coast in lieu of the FIFA deadlines.

The Ivory Coast coach however was quite disappointed about the fact that the England club expected the Ivory Coast people not to have any idea about the dates and deadlines and felt insulted because it portrayed them being illiterate on such terms and conditions.

The FIFA deadline clearly states that the training session for each of the countries has already begun and hence all other priorities are temporarily terminated.


FIFA president Sepp Blatter has said that the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil would be the first major international competition that will have a goal-line technology. Goal-line technology has been a long-standing debate within football.

Sepp Blatter has been one of the important figures in world football to be against the process of inducing technology in football. Blatter has always argued that technology will spoil the game, as we know it, by making it much slower than it is now. However, one of the must have accessories in the game as it is now seems to be goal-line technology given the number of wrong decisions made by referees in this regard continuously.


It is supposed to be the biggest festival of football on the planet, but Brazilian legend Pele fears that it might turn into a bit of a damp squib if the construction delays aren’t rectified over the next few weeks and months.

Brazil host the 2014 World Cup Finals, awarded to them after some spectacular plans for new stadiums, airports, hotels and roads were unveiled by the bid committee. Whilst the plan should work in principle, in practice many of the various projects are falling behind schedule, and some construction work might even be taking place whilst the Finals are taking place.

Speaking at the launch of his latest authorised biography, Pele said he thought that Brazil could definitley do a good job, but that there is a lot of work to be done.
