The FPF here in Peru is quite unorganized and corrupt, hence the recent decline in the football in the past decade. Things seem to be changing now, after a horrible campaign under Chemo del Solar (ex Peruvian footballer who became the NTs coach) which resulted in Peru ending up last in the WC 2010 qualifiers.

This past decade has been our worst when it comes to this great sport, but the winds of change have finally reached the FPF and now we have a new coach, El Mago, Sergio Markarián. We hope things will change and that Peru will regain its former glory.

Our most known teams r: Universitario, Alianza Lima, Sporting Cristal and recently San Martin and Juan Aurich (both have gained notable recognition).

Most succesful teams (domestic) r: Universitario and Alianza Lima.

Most succesful team (internationally) is: Cienciano, the only Peruvian team to win tittles outside of Peru, they won the Copa Sudamericana and the Recopa Sudamericana. Sadly after that their best players left the team and economic unrest hit the club.

The 'Middle Man' of South America

In the past 20 years we have seen a lot of changes in Football at South America and Central America. Before, let' say 1990's, players in teams from Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, Uruguay and even Paraguay had to go to the Argentinian or Brazilian clubs so that Europeans could llook at them. You could argue that Argentina and Brazil clubs had more benefits than the others, cause they bought cheaply from other teams in South America and then charged millions for them when a European club wondered about them.

This "middle man" has been slowly cutted off, now it's much more likely for a player in Colombia for example, to have a chance in Europe. That might well be the case of half my NT that is Porto or has played for that club. Miguel can tell all of you some stories about that. Hugo Rodallega is a good example, he didn't play in Porto, but made the jump from Deportivo Cali to Wigan I think in the Premier League.

Now, in finance is better for World Football to have this change, mainly because those small football countries can now charge more for their stars and develop a better club. But on the players view, I think we can see many cases that this could backfire them in the ass. Before, you saw the progress of a football player (slowly but surely) and now we see kids that are being bought by the big clubs in the World and can't handle the preassure.

San Martin progress in away goal thriller

Quote:
Ten-man Peruvian side Universidad San Martin battled from a goal down in Lima to beat Ecuador's Deportivo Quito 2-1 and reach the second round of the Copa Sudamericana.

Anibal Ruiz's side went a goal down a minute before the interval but scored two goals in three minutes late in the second period to seal a 4-4 aggregate draw and advance on away goals.

The visitors opened the scoring against the run of play in the 44th minute. Luis Checa's initial header hit another player but he latched onto the rebound and made no mistake.

San Martin equalised in the 79th minute when Heber Arriola converted from the spot, but the forward was then sent off for punching Deportivo goalkeeper Bonard Garcia, who held onto the ball and did not let San Martin players resume the game quickly.

Despite their numerical disadvantage, the home team netted the decisive goal three minutes later when Argentinian forward German Alemanno's bicycle kick beat Garcia.

"This is for my family, as I have not seen them for months. We made big sacrifice to achieve this. Now it's time to celebrate,'' Alemanno told Fox Sports. "I am very happy. This is the result of a good job by the team and the coaching staff.''

Universidad San Martin will face Ecuadorian side Emelec in the two-legged second-stage encounter.

Peru's Cesar Vallejo upset in Copa Sudamericana

Quote:
Peruvian side Cesar Vallejo went down 2-1 at home to Ecuador's Barcelona in the first leg of their Copa Sudamericana first-round tie on Thursday.
The Peruvians opened the scoring through Hector Hurtado, but Jefferson Hurtado equalised a minute later and Ricardo Noir completed the turnaround after the interval for Barcelona, who now need only a draw at home to qualify to the second stage.

The match was played in front of roughly 10,000 fans at Mansiche Stadium in Trujillo, northern Peru.

In other games, Goias advanced 3-1 on aggregate after a 2-0 second-leg win over Brazilian rivals Gremio; while giants Santos lost the first leg 3-1 at home to Avai in another all-Brazilian tie in the Copa Sudamericana's second stage.

Ministry promotes shareholder scheme for Peru soccer clubs

Quote:
Peru's Finance Ministry established the rules to promote the transformation of sporting clubs into shareholder-owned businesses next year, in a plan to alleviate their tax problems.

The Ministry has created a special regime to pay tax debts in installments, so that these clubs can regularize their debts up to July 31, 2009, reports Semana Economica.

This is the first tax rescue plan structured in Peru for professional soccer clubs.

According to this new plan, clubs will be able to restructure the debt principal, remaining interests and other concepts.

Barcelona midfielder Matias Oyola was sent off in the 76th minute and substitute Luis Garces followed in the 81st. Emelec's Argentine striker Santiago Biglieri was shown the red card four minutes from time.

The visiting side's goalkeeper Maximo Banguera was man of the match as he prevented an Emelec rout with a string of fine saves, especially in the closing minutes. Emelec had seven shots on target and Biglieri hit the post.

Barcelona remain one point behind leaders Deportivo Cuenca, held 0-0 by Olmedo, in the second phase of the championship. Emelec, four points off the pace, won the first phase.

PERU

Very well put Filo, its time for counries such as ours to benefit from our own players. For to long Argentina and Brazil have monopolized the market.

Internacional reaches deal with former West Ham striker Ilan

Quote:
Copa Libertadores champion Internacional says it has reached a deal to acquire former West Ham striker Ilan.

The Brazilian club said on Tuesday that Ilan will arrive on Wednesday to sign a contract until the end of 2011. He will be the team's first addition for the Club World Cup at the end of the year in Dubai.

Internacional earned a spot in the competition by defeating Mexico's Guadalajara 3-2 in the Copa Libertadores final last Wednesday.

Internacional will be trying to win the Club World Cup for the second time, adding to the 2006 title.

The 29-year-old Ilan was released by West Ham this year. He previously played for Sochaux and Saint Etienne in France.

South American Round Up Aug 28

Quote:
PARAGUAY

Luis Cubilla, who played for the Uruguay team that reached the 1970 World Cup semi-finals, might have begun his fifth spell as coach of Olimpia with a victory but Cerro Porteno came back from two goals down for a 2-2 draw in the big Asuncion derby.

The 70-year-old Cubilla, who steered Olimpia to their Libertadores Cup titles in 1979, 1990 and 2002 in three different spells in charge of the team, replaced Jose Cardozo who was sacked two weeks ago.

Argentine striker Juan Carlos Ferreyra scored twice with headers in the opening quarter of an hour for Olimpia but was sent off in the 57th minute for hitting an opponent.

Pablo Zeballos had pulled one back early in the second half and, with Olimpia down to 10 men, Jorge Nunez equalised in the 65th.

Leaders Libertad, with 15 points from six matches after a 7-0 rout of Trinidense, are three points ahead of Cerro Porteno and four ahead of title holders Guarani.

URUGUAY

The Apertura championship, the first of two in the 2010/11 season, got under way a week later than scheduled after partial resolution of a conflict with referees over work-related expenses.

Negotiations between the referees and the Uruguayan Football Association (AUF) will resume in December at the end of the championship.

El Tanque Sisley caused a sensation by marking their return to the top flight after 20 years with a 1-0 home win over Racing.

Champions Penarol's opening match against Miramar Misiones was postponed as they travelled to Spain for a friendly against Real Madrid marking the 50th anniversary of the teams' clash in the first Intercontinental Cup final won by the Spanish side.

Uruguay World Cup midfielder Egidio Arevalo Rios has extended his loan to title holders Penarol from Mexico's Monterrey for six months and will play the Apertura.

PERU

Champions Universitario won 1-0 at home to San Martin, who had already secured top place in the first stage of the championship and a berth in next year's Libertadores Cup.

Leon de Huanuco upset Cesar Vallejo 2-1 away with two goals from Argentine Gustavo Rodas to overtake them in second place on goal difference. Alianza Lima dropped to third after a 1-0 derby defeat by Sporting Cristal.

CHILE Title holders Colo Colo beat Union Espanola 1-0 at home to remain a point ahead of Universidad Catolica, who crushed 10-man San Luis 4-1.

San Luis had midfielder Francisco Sanchez sent off after half an hour for a foul on Argentine defender Rodolfo Arruabarrena.

ECUADOR

Leaders LDU Quito beat Olmedo 1-0 at home with a majority of reserves while they rested players for Wednesday's first leg of the South American Supercup against Estudiantes of Argentina.

After eight rounds of the second phase of the championship, LDU lead by two points from Deportivo Cuenca with Barcelona dropping to fourth after a shock 2-1 home loss to Manta, whose Argentine forward Maximiliano Bevacqua scored twice.

COLOMBIA

Independiente Santa Fe beat Deportivo Pereira 1-0 away to retain their unbeaten record and top place in the Clausura standings.

After six matches, Santa Fe are two points ahead of Deportes Tolima with Cucuta dropping to third after a 1-0 away loss to Atletico Nacional in Medellin.

BOLIVIA

San Jose lost 3-1 to Guabira and were caught at the top of the Clausura championship by The Strongest, who beat Universitario de Sucre 3-0, and Blooming, 1-0 winners over Apertura title holders Wilstermann.

The three teams have 10 points after five matches.

VENEZUELA

Champions Caracas FC and Deportivo Tachira are joint top of the Apertura after three rounds. Caracas beat Estudiantes de Merida 1-0 at home while Tachira won 3-1 away to Trujillanos.

Midfielder Angel Chourio scored a hat-trick in second-placed Real Esppor's 3-1 away win over CD Lara.

No va: Pizarro fue desconvocado de la selección por lesión

Diario El Bocon

Im glad that El Mago Markarian (Peru's NY Coach) has decided to uncall Pizarro, this shows respect from a nation towards the players well being and his responsabilities to his club (Bremen).
