FIFA Ranking – July 4, 2013: Brazil in, England out of top 10

The FIFA Ranking release of July 4 holds several surprises. Brazil, Colombia and England are in an interesting situation while USA have received a boost.

Brazil are back among football's 10 best teams according to the latest FIFA Ranking.If it does not seem right in world football to see five-time world champions Brazil suffer, things have now started looking correct. Glittering from their tremendous performances at the just-ended 2013 Confederations Cup, the Samba Boys have rocketed back in the top 10 of the FIFA Ranking. Still, it would take much more than a one-sided 3-0 win against Spain in the Confeds Final for Neymar and his colleagues to kick La Furia Roja away from the summit.

The Brazilians entered the tournament ranked 22nd in the world. In other words, this signified their worst ever position in the chart. Their South American rivals, Uruguay, have also jumped seven places and are now 12th whereas Colombia surprisingly occupy the third spot behind Spain and Germany.

Brazil vs Spain: live on ESPN, other TV channels – Confederations Cup 2013 final

The Neymar factor heats up the Brazil vs Spain Confederations Cup 2013 final. Watch it live on any online or TV channel in USA and worldwide. Check out live streaming and TV info!

It is Neymar vs Spain, the big duel of the Confederations Cup 2013 final which host Brazil so want to win!Preview: Neymar’s final pre-Barcelona test

The players that are going to be involved in the Confederations Cup final know each other’s faces too much. The game will be a mix-up of mainly Barcelona, Real Madrid and Chelsea stars; Sergio Ramos, Iker Casillas, Shakira’s husband Gerard Pique, Fernando Torres, David Luiz and the list of Blanco, Catalan and Blue names goes on…

Evidently, a certain matchup stands out above the rest: it is the meeting between Neymar and his new Barca team mates. Will the Brazil number 10 forward play the villain by single-handedly upsetting favourites Spain or will he suffer from intimidation towards the greatness of Xavi, Iniesta and company?

At the tournament, the young chap has shown that oppositions cannot keep him quiet throughout a match. His outstanding volleys against Japan and Mexico set Brazil on perfect note. Against Italy, his free-kick stunned world-class goalkeeper Buffon.

If Uruguay thought they had found the way to shut down Neymar in the semis, they were wrong. The 21-year-old seemed to struggle to find his space until the final moments of the match when he exhibited his cheekiness to literally kiss Uruguay goodbye by assisting Paulinho’s late winner.

Critics believe that the ex-Santos playmaker has yet to prove himself and much to learn in Europe. Before commencing his club football challenge in Spain, the Brazil vs Spain Confederations Cup final offers Neymar two simple options: a flattering triumph over the world’s best team or a maturity lesson through defeat.

In any case, football is not a one-man game and tonight's game is not just about Neymar. Fernando Torres has the habit of scoring in finals while Brazil have vowed to end the Spanish era. The angles connected to this encounter are numerous and extremely engaging. In fact, the efforts and mistakes of all players involved will shape up this glorious Confederations Cup 2013 final at the Maracaña stadium in Rio.

Uruguay vs Italy: Live on ESPN, Univision, more – Confederations Cup 2013

All is set for the Confederations Cup 2013 Third-place Final to take place on Sunday, June 30. Uruguay vs Italy will be broadcast on ESPN, Univision and many other online and TV channels.

Pirlo's Italy and Suarez's Uruguay contend for bronze medals at the Confederations Cup 2013 Third-place Final on Sunday, June 30.Preview: Pirlo’s Azzurri and Suarez’s Celeste seeking fitting end

Both players – veteran Italian midfielder Andrea Pirlo and Liverpool star forward Luis Suarez – are nominees for the Confederations Cup 2013 Golden Ball award. Suarez showcased his scoring aptitude against Spain and Tahiti in the group stages of the competition.

The Uruguayan striker really does not need too many shots to create a goal. There is even more to his game as he can engineer the attack behind Diego Forlan and Edison Cavani as per the plans of coach Oscar Tabarez.

La Celeste Olimpica narrowly lost to Brazil in the semi-finals and so did Italy to world champions Spain; a missed penalty from Bonucci settled a heart-breaking 7-6 shoot-out score line in favour of the Spaniards. However, the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup Third-Place final has a great deal of consolation at stake. It will be curious to find out whether Cesare Prandelli's team can find the net in normal time and actually claim victory in the absence of Mario Balotelli.

Four years ago, it was La Furia Roja and Bafana Bafana of South Africa contending for this spot. The former clinched bronze and, buoyed by this achievement, grew in confidence to claim the FIFA World Cup the following year.

This time, it is perhaps too early for either Italy or Uruguay to dream about glory at Brazil 2014. However, one thing is certain: the performances that both sides have displayed since the beginning of this tournament have made them look as genuine contenders for next year’s big football event.

And if the Uruguayans are not doing as well as the Italians in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers, bronze medals on Sunday afternoon could brighten their spirits for the CONMEBOL road-to-Brazil challenge ahead.

How Barcelona, Real Madrid and Chelsea impact the Confederations Cup 2013 final

Sunday June 30 2013,
The upcoming final of the Confederations Cup would be quite a spectacle and it would be really interesting to see how Spanish and Brazilian players, who play with and against each other, renew acquaintances and rivalries
On Sunday, Brazil and Spain square off in the final of the World Cup warm up tournament. Interestingly, many players in the squad are playing either in La Liga or in Spain which means there would be quite a lot of tussles and mini ‘Clasicos’ this Sunday.

Dani Alves vs Jordi Alba

This should be an interesting battle. Dani Alves and Jordi Alba are club mates at Barcelona and it would quite an exhibition seeing the two full-backs attack and defend their respective flanks. This would be the first time they will play against each other and both men would be looking to do exceptionally well in order to save face the next time they bump into each other at the Camp Nou.

Spain vs Italy: live on ESPN, Univision, full TV info – Confederations Cup 2013

Spain have never played in a Confederations Cup final but they could break this hoodoo on June 27, 2013. Watch Spain vs Italy live online or on TV and witness what history has in store.

Spain and Italy clash on June 27 in a semi-final match at the Confederations Cup 2013.Preview – Daunting task for the Azzurri without Balotelli

When the referee’s whistle will go up to kick off proceedings at the Estádio Castelão in Fortaleza, soccer fans will be 90 or 120 minutes away from knowing if that dream Confederations Cup 2013 final will indeed take place. Many want to see hosts Brazil clash against world champions Spain in Rio on Sunday. However, the Azzuri of Italy have other ideas. They are plotting for an upset to happen on Thursday.

Cesare Prandelli’s mission is as tough as it seems. The Italian manager has lost his star player, Mario Balotelli. In the Milan striker’s absence, pundits have been wondering where the Euro 2012 runners-up will get their goals from.

Revenge is on the mind of the Italians after that humiliating 4-0 loss to current European Champions Spain last summer. At the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup, Italy have proven to be passionate in every area of the pitch but their defence needs serious corrections. They have allowed eight goals in their net already. How does this compare to the Spaniards who only conceded on Matchday 1 as a certain Luis Suarez beat Iker Casillas from a free-kick?

La Furia Roja will be looking to impose its possession style of play but the Azzurri will want to overcome the misery of opening holes at the back and suffer a hammering. On Wednesday, the South American affair between Brazil and Uruguay produced a very tight outcome. What kind of show will football viewers be treated to on June 27?

Where to watch the match live – Start time, live stream, TV channels

ESPN and Sportsnet are not the only sports networks via which Spain vs Italy will air live in North America. Univision has added itself to the coverage of this intriguing Last 4 encounter. Below are full TV info details for viewers in Canada, UK and USA.

Confederations Cup 2013: Top 5 stars for Golden Ball Award

Many players performed excellently in the Confederations Cup group stages. We take a look at some of the nominees for the Golden Ball Award.

Fernando Torres

The much maligned Fernando Torres struck four in a wonderful predatory showing against Tahiti. Despite missing a penalty against Tahiti, Torres picked up five goals in the group stages. Spain dominated the group and Torres was definitely amongst their best players. Torres has a knack of picking up the awards in the big tournaments…

Brazil vs Uruguay: Live on ESPN and other networks – Confederations Cup 2013

ESPN is among a host of top sports networks worldwide scheduled to show Brazil vs Uruguay live on June 26, 2013. Here is your ultimate source to watch this Confederations Cup semis fixture.

Neymar and Luis Suarez will clash on June 26 as Brazil and Uruguay seek to clinch Confederations Cup 2013 final ticketsPreview – All eyes on Neymar and Luis Suarez

Is the world going to see both Neymar and Luis Suarez clash in El Clasico next season? If transfer reports are to be believed, Suarez is well on his way out of Liverpool to Real Madrid whereas Neymar is already a Barcelona player. This would only solidify the strength of Spain’s two giant teams while the Spanish La Liga continues to rival the Premiership as the world’s best league.

The possibility of having Neymar and Suarez confront each other on one same pitch will be a reality this Wednesday when Confederations Cup 2013 hosts Brazil come up against Copa America titleholders Uruguay at the Estádio Mineirão. The hottest angle of this football game will see Pele’s new number 10 heir battle it out against the Uruguayan’s new all-time top scorer. Who will come out victorious?

Aside the individual fight between these two attackers, other players from both sides are poised to rise up to the occasion. Never write off the influence of Uruguay’s Diego Forlan and Chelsea-bound Edison Cavani or the trickery of Brazil’s Hulk and Oscar. It will certainly be a very busy night in Belo Horizonte for goalkeepers Muslera and Julio Cesar…

Confed. Cup: Safe To Bet On A Spain - Brazil Final?

Tuesday June 25 2013,
Tags: Brazil, Confederations Cup 2013, Spain, Italy, Uruguay, Neymar
Taking a look at the four remaining teams in the Confederations Cup, Brazil and Spain could end up meeting in the final, if both sides get past their next opponent.

It is difficult to imagine any international competition without thinking of seeing Spain in the final four, or even the final two. Having claimed consecutive European Championships (2008, 2012) and the latest World Cup (2010), Spain is well on their way to yet another piece of silverware. 

In their way will be an Italian side that has had some exciting moments on the international level, but this Spanish side has already shown that they can unlock an Italian back line that for years was known to cause problems for most opponents.

For Brazil, playing in their own country is already added pressure, but if we take a look at how they have played so far in the tournament, all signs point to Scolari leading his country to a Confederations Cup Final.

Confederations Cup: Neymar proves his worth ahead of high profile move to Barcelona

Tuesday June 25 2013,
Tags: Neymar, Barcelona, Confederations Cup 2013
The Brazil international’s move to Barcelona raised a lot of eyebrows but if his performances at the Confederations Cup are anything to go buy with, the former Santos man has proved his doubters wrong.
The 2013 Confederations Cup has been a very productive one for Brazilian protégé Neymar. The new Barcelona signing has scored three goals in three games and has spearheaded the Selecao attack with extreme prejudice while also showing a lot of maturity beyond his years.

The youngster has starred for his team in all three games, opening the scoring in the first two games against Japan and Mexico respectively. Moreover, both goals were scored inside the opening ten minutes of the game. As things stand, he is the third top scorer in the tournament behind Fernando Torres of Spain and Abel Hernandez of Uruguay who scored a major chunk of their goals against Tahiti.

Nigeria vs Spain, Uruguay vs Tahiti: Watch live on TV or online – June 23, 2013

A flurry of goals, high levels of drama, bitterness and euphoria are expected ahead of Spain vs Nigeria and Uruguay vs Tahiti on June 23, 2013. Watch both matches live on TV or online.

Spain tops Group B while Nigeria and Uruguay look to qualify ahead of Matchday 3 at the FIFA Confederations Cup.Group B permutations – who will qualify in first and second position?

Analytically, only one more semi-final ticket is up for grabs at the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup. Although it looks to be going Uruguay’s way, AFCON 2013 champions Nigeria hold the daring dream of creating an upset this Sunday.

Brazil and Italy are already through and so are Spain – virtually. Looking at the goal difference factor in Group B, it would sound absurd to believe that La Furia Roja could finish in third position in the table. Mathematically, though, this remains a possibility.

Ahead of Matchday 3, the Spaniards count 6 points with 12 goals scored and only one allowed. Nigeria are second with three points and a (+4) goal difference. At this point, the Super Eagles might regret not hitting many more goals against Tahiti in their opening game.

Italy vs Brazil live broadcast switches to ESPN – Confederations Cup 2013

Saturday June 22 2013,
Tags: Live Stream, TV Schedules, Brazil, Italy, Neymar, Mario Balotelli, ESPN
A big update on ESPN networks was made on Friday. The titanic Italy vs Brazil match will be telecast live on ESPN and not on ESPNEWS as previously indicated.

It is Neymar vs Mario Balotelli again in a Confederations Cup match on June 22, 2013.Preview – Neymar and Balotelli mark the hype

When Neymar plays, world football fans – critics and admirers alike – stop to watch him in action. The 21-year-old Brazilian’s move from Santos to Barcelona has widely increased the attention of European soccer fans.

This Saturday, Neymar will come head-to-head with Italy’s darling player – Mario Balotelli. The ‘King Kong’ striker has already scored three goals at the Confederations Cup 2013. He is a strike above Brazil’s number 10 star in the tournament’s goalscorers chart.

The matchup between the Azzurri and the Samba Boys will not mean much as far as both teams have already qualified out of Group A. However, claiming the top spot in the table and building more momentum in the process is an honour they want to achieve.

Brazil are fresh from sending Mexico home thanks to the ‘Neymar Show’. Meanwhile, Italy are beaming with confidence following a high-octane 4-3 victory against Japan on Matchday 2. Brazil vs Italy could as well be the fixture of the Confederations Cup 2013 final – depending on how things go in the semi-finals.

Confederations Cup 2013 – Mexico vs Japan: Watch in live stream or on TV

It will be all about consolation when Mexico and Japan take to the field in their final Confederations Cup 2013 fixture. Live Soccer TV shows you where to watch this June 22 game live online or on TV.

Chicharito will try to sign off from the Confederations Cup 2013 in style, with a match against Japan on Saturday, June 22, 2013.Match preview: End of road for Chicharito, Kagawa and co.

Japan have zero point from a possible six but this does not reflect the mighty efforts they injected in their battle against Italy on Matchday 2. Inspired by the speed of Honda and the trickery of Shinji Kagawa, they pushed the Azzurri hard and almost recorded a brilliant upset. However, football sometimes is cruel and the Italians pounced on Japan’s defensive error to steal all three points in a 4-3 encounter.

Earlier on that day, Mexico toiled in vain against Brazil. Man-of-the-match Neymar had no mercy for Javier Hernandez and company. El Tri have been struggling to score under manager De La Torre. They have not scored from open play in any of their last four matches. The Mexicans have also registered only one goal in over 360 minutes of football in June.

Things have not gone according to plan for the Gold Cup champions. Solace is the only thing they might find against match favourites Japan on Saturday. None of these two teams want to crash out without recording a single point. Pride is at stake for both sides but the pressure is mainly on the Mexicans who are, in the first place, in danger of missing out on the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Meanwhile, the Japanese have already qualified. They were actually the first country to book a ticket to Brazil 2014.

Luis Suarez and Mikel Obi meet in a must-win game for Uruguay against Nigeria on Thursday, June 20, 2013. LiveSoccerTV previews the match and tells you where to watch it live.

Nigeria and Uruguay will close Matchday 2 in Group B with a late kick-off.The gap between Nigeria and Uruguay is huge but only two games have been played between these two teams in Group B so anything could happen moving forward. The Super Eagles had the luck of kicking off their Confederation Cup 2013 campaign against the weakest side of the tournament, Tahiti.

Meanwhile, La Celeste Olimpica had the opposite – a meeting with the world’s highest-ranked nation, Spain. At the end of Matchday 1, the table placed the Africans on top with a (+6) goal difference while the South Americans were placed third with no point after kicking off their 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup campaign on a bad note last weekend.

The clash between the Nigerians and the Uruguayans on June 20 will certainly showcase t he true strength of both sides.

FIFA Confederations Cup Group B Analysis: Can Nigeria upset Spain or Uruguay?

Monday June 17 2013,
Tags: Nigeria, Spain, Uruguay, Tahiti, Confederations Cup 2013
Nigeria has been placed in an extremely tough group in the Confederations Cup. Can they overcome the likes of Spain and Uruguay to reach the semifinals?
A simple look at the Nigerian squad by a casual observer of the game will not be shocking; their will hardly be any recognizable names. Seasoned followers will be surprised though as the likes of Peter Odemwingie, Joseph Yobo and Obafemi Martins are not part of the squad. Victor Moses and Emmanuel Emenike are unavailable. Nonetheless, seasoned followers will also realize that this squad has plenty of playing experience in the toughest of European leagues under their belt.

The first name that sticks out is obviously that of the Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel. He has a European Cup to his name of course. A 26 year old by the name of Joseph Akpala plies his trade in one of the world’s most attacking leagues, the Bundesliga and will get a chance to make his name in this competition.
