Having left Drogba on the bench, Lamouchi said his impact after coming on, almost immediately engineering a winning turnaround as the Africans scored twice in a three-minute burst, was typical of the influence of the 36-year-old striker. "Having a player like Drogba in the team, either starting or as a replacement, always has an effect on the team," he told reporters, adding he had only told the captain he would be on the bench when they arrived at the stadium. "Of course Drogba was disappointed to be on the bench but if you saw the joy when he finished the match - we need him and we will need everyone before the end of this tournament. "When Drogba came on everything changed. Part of leaving him on the bench was to do with strategy, part of it was his fitness. The last time he played 90 minutes was a few months ago in Turkey and he's had an injury since then. "He has improved an awful lot in the last few weeks. He has made a lot of sacrifices to be at the World Cup. "We did not start very well in the game, conceding the first goal because of a careless mistake," added Lamouchi, a former French international with only two years coaching experience. "But after that we made many chances. For us it was really important to get into the competition. "The players are very happy with the victory, but we are not yet qualified," added Lamouchi, whose side next meetColombia in Brasilia on Thursday. Earlier on Saturday, Colombia secured an emphatic 3-0 win over Greece in the opening group match. More»

This time it probably was worth saying. A minute after the final whistle went, the stadium announcer at the Arena Fonte Nova followed a new trend from this World Cup and declared: “The final score was Netherlands 5, Spain 1.” Normally it is redundant message but here it seemed meaningful somehow: Yes, five. Holland had got what the Spanish describe as a manita, a little hand: a goal for each finger. This was the worst defeat a defending champion had ever suffered at the World Cup and it was the first time Spain had conceded five at the tournament since they were last in Brazil, 64 years ago. At the final whistle Daryl Janmaat fell to the turf and kissed it, lying there in disbelief. This was astonishing, barely believable. Four years ago, Holland had lost the World Cup final to Spain. Now, they had humiliated them. They had scored five; they could have scored more. The Spanish goalkeeper, Iker Casillas, made two stunning saves in the dying minutes that will not bring redemption for what went before and Robin Van Persie smashed another shot against the bar. By the end, they had taken 13 shots. Towards the finish, the Dutch were an unstoppable tide; the blue shirts just kept coming forward for more. Olés were their sound track but they were not satisfied to simply pass the ball, to keep it: they wanted to go on plunging the knife in, insatiable, almost sadistic. There was something about the goals, especially the fifth from Arjen Robben, that spoke of an immense superiority. Holland were enjoying this. More»

Brazil's biggest city confronted a second straight day of commuting chaos on Friday, as striking subway workers and a protest over housing conditions tangled the streets of Sao Paulo less than a week before it hosts the opening match of the World Cup. Police used tear gas to break up a demonstration blocking access to one metro station, but a third of the city's subway stops remained closed early in the morning. More than 200 kilometers (125 miles) of traffic choked city streets. The strike already set a record on Thursday for morning gridlock in Sao Paulo this year and snagged several FIFA officials in over two hours of traffic as they arrived for a conference ahead of the World Cup. Logjams could also complicate access to Brazil's final test match before the tournament, a friendly against Serbia in the Morumbi Stadium on the city's leafy west side. World Cup organizers have urged soccer fans to use public transportation to stadiums on game days at 12 host cities, but just a fraction of the transportation projects promised for the tournament have been delivered.

Zamalek coach Ahmed Hossam "Mido" believes his team is the best in Egypt when it plays with its full strength, insisting that the Whites' have had an unusual season – a spate of injuries and a packed schedule. "Zamalek is the strongest team in Egypt when its suspended or injured players rejoin the squad, but we have ready alternatives to recover these absences," Mido said at a press conference on Friday. The Whites are currently preparing for Sunday's league clash against Haras El-Hodoud, which the rookie coach says they must win. "It will be a tough match. We will be facing a strong opponent, but we will have no other choice but to win to complete our league campaign successfully," the 31-year old tactician said. "Playing successive matches in very little time affects us negatively, but we are depending on a rotation policy to overcome this issue. We are in an unusual season," he added. Zamalek, who are bidding for their first domestic league title since 2004, are now fourth in Group B with 19 points, 10 adrift of leaders Petrojet, who have played three games more. More»

Pepsi® today officially announced its global creative curation, uniting the exciting worlds of photography, street art and sport to celebrate “The Art of Football” as part of the brand’s 2014 football campaign. Combining world-renowned photographer Danny Clinch, six of the world’s leading street artists and some of the globe’s best footballers, including Leo Messi, Robin van Persie, Jack Wilshere, David Luiz, Sergio Agüero and Sergio Ramos, Pepsi presents a truly bespoke art collection celebrating the artistry of football. The resulting artwork – six spectacular 10-foot by 10-foot canvases – was created by emerging artistic talent chosen specifically to represent the vibrancy and spirit of the global players’ home countries. Participating artists include the UK’s professional doodle bomber, Hattie Stewart, Argentinean urban artist, Jaz, Brazilian illustrator and street artist Ricardo AKN, Barcelona, Spain-based visual artist Zosen, Merijn Hos, visual artists from the Netherlands and Argentinean street artist Ever. “The Art of Football” collaboration brings the raw energy of street art onto permanent fixtures of art which depict the players – who last month were announced as Pepsi’s global 2014 football ambassadors – in a clash of color, energy and movement to bring to life the beautiful game in a powerful, striking way. To capture the athletes’ passion and excitement for the game, Pepsi commissioned lensmen Danny Clinch, whose distinctive, stark, black and white imagery of iconic subjects have earned global accolades. Clinch’s images were then enhanced by the six street artists, giving the photography an unbridled creative edge, urban rawness, bold color and sense of movement. More»

Egyptian football icon Ahmed Hossam 'Mido' has been appointed the new coach of his home club Zamalek, the club announced on Tuesday. "We have officially appointed Mido as the first team new head coach," the club said in a statment in its official website late on Tuesday without disclosing any details. The former Zamalek star succeeds Helmi Toulan, who was sacked after the team's latest draw against Haras El-Hodoud 1-1 in the Egyptian league. Toulan, who helped the team to its first silverware in five years by claiming the Egypt Cup last November, did not meet expectations because the squad is performing below par this season. After four matches, the Whites are fourth in Group B table with 7 points, six behind leaders Ismaily. From pitch to bench Mido - who will turn 31 on 23 February - is set to become the youngest coach in Egyptian football history. He will have his first coaching experience with Zamalek after working as a football analyst at Al Jazeera Sports channels since his retirement last summer. Although Mido lacks high-profile coaching experience, Zamalek management is gambling on the vast experience of the much-travelled former player who was a part of a number of great European clubs for more than a decade. He is known for his passion and leading personality, which is hoped to help him control a squad that is hampered by lack of discipline and troubles. The club has been suffering from a stiff financial crises that saw the players out of payments for several months. Mido has became the second iconic figure in Egyptian football who switched directly from player to coach after his own idol Hossam Hassan took over Masry just a few weeks after retiring at the same club. A glorious career cut short In June 2013, Mido hung up his boots after failing to find a club after leaving English side Barnsley in January. The former Ajax, Marseille, Roma and Tottenham striker signed a one-year contract with Barnsley in the summer of 2012, but he left by mutual consent six months later. Plagued with persistent fitness problems, Mido only appeared once for the Tykes before leaving in January. He has been without a club ever since. The towering frontman came through the youth ranks of Cairo's Zamalek before beginning a European adventure at the age of 17, playing for ten teams. He failed to realise his potential at the international level, though, and was absent during Egypt's African Cup of Nations triumphs in 2008 and 2010. He was part of their squad in 2006 but missed the final victory over the Ivory Coast in Cairo, following an infamous touchline altercation with then-coach Hassan Shehata. More»

Egypt have advanced 10 positions to reach number 31 in FIFA's world football ranking for January after placing 41 last month. The Pharaohs, winners of a record seven African Cup of Nations (CAN) trophies, failed to reach the 2014 World Cup in Brazil after losing 7-3 to Ghana on aggregate. After terminating the contract of American coach Bob Bradley, the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) named Shawqy Gharib to replace him in leading the team. Egypt rank fourth among African countries, after Ivory Coast, Ghana and Algeria. The Pharaohs made it into the world's top 10 after winning three successive African Cup of Nations trophies, in 2006, 2008 and 2010. Spain leads an unchanged top four, ahead of Germany, Argentina and Colombia. After Portugal, Uruguay is number six, followed by Italy, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Brazil. More»

As he waved to the passionate crowd chanting his name at his final home game, Mohamed Abou-Treika resembled a conductor saluting his audience following his final musical performance, or a Spanish noble gesturing to his lovers after emerging victorious from a bullfight. Such was the impact of the evergreen footballer that he had to ignore repeated pleas from his fans to carry on. He was insistent on bringing the curtain down on his career while he was still going strong, rather than calling it a day after he had lost his magic wand. In recent years, Abou-Treika, a classic playmaker constantly likened to French great Zinedine Zidane, was not as much of a threat as he was in his prime, with his typical marauding forays in the final third nowhere to be seen. But he still managed to draw cheers from the crowd with his trademark defence-splitting passes, usually followed by a winning smile. His last match in front Ahly's die-hard supporters, who carried him on their shoulders and chanted his name when his teammates deserted them, saw him torment the backline of South Africa's Orlando Pirates to guide his team to a record-breaking eighth African Champions League title.

Ahly midfielder Hossam Ashour could miss Ahly's match against Mexico's Monterrey at the Club World Cup fifth place decider on Wednesday. According to Ahly's official website, the player is suffering from a groin injury and will be examined on Monday to determine his availability for the match. Ahly failed to prove their worth at the opening game of their fifth appearance at the prestigious tournament by losing 0-2 to China's Guangzhou on Saturday. Against the CONCACAF champions Monterrey, Ahly will be already missing the services of veteran playmaker Mohamed Abou-Treika after he sustained a hamstring injury against Guangzhou that will sideline him for six weeks. The Red Devils are also monitoring the situation of striker Emad Meteb, who is recovering from a minor injury. More»

The city of Sochi will have specific protest zones for demonstrators to air their views when it hosts the 2014 winter Olympics in February, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) was told on Tuesday. "We welcome the announcement of the (Sochi) organizing committee that in Sochi there will be protest zones that will be established for people who want to demonstrate against something," IOC President Thomas Bach told reporters after a progress report by the Russian Games organizers. "They (protesters) will have the opportunity to do so in special protest zones," he said. Russia has been under mounting criticism over its human rights record, especially this year after passing an anti-gay propaganda law which critics say curtails the rights of homosexuals. "This was under discussion with the IOC for quite some time," Bach said. "It was announced to us today and it (zones) will be located in Sochi." More»
