    Thierry Henry gets first MLS goal in Red Bulls’ 2-0 win

    Thierry Henry scored his first Major League Soccer goal in the second half of the New York Red Bulls’ 2-0 win over the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday.

    Dane Richards, who set up Henry’s goal, scored late in the first half for the Red Bulls, who won for the third time in four matches and pulled four points behind first-place Columbus in the Eastern Conference.

      That goal Marquez scored a couple of weeks ago for Red Bulls was a cracker.

              Pizarro is injured for 3 weeks.

                Peru decided not to call him due to his injury, this shows respect towards the players health and responsabilities to his club. Wish the Dutch federation acted like that .....

                And Guerrero requested not to be called until he was fully fit.

                  Shakhtar Donetsk's Ilsinho Signs With Sao Paulo

                  Ilsinho has trained with Sao Paulo for the past three months, after walking out on Shakhtar at the end of last season alleging that the Ukrainians owed him money in wages. Since then the player has been training alone but using the club's facilities to avoid any complication of the situation.

                  Globoesporte report however that the Tricolor have officially signed the player on a year's loan from company Traffic, which owns part of his playing rights. Club vice-president Carlos Augusto de Barros revealed that Sao Paulo were now just waiting for official confirmation to go ahead from FIFA before announcing Ilsinho as a part of their squad.

                  "Everything is agreed, now we are just lacking the paperwork and the arrival of a FIFA document that will free the player to be registered. We still don't know when this will arrive, but we are waiting, and the player still is not quite ready to play," the official explained on Monday afternoon.

                    South American Round Up Aug 30


                    A penalty by Argentine striker Hernan Barcos, his third goal in two matches, gave LDU Quito a 1-1 draw with Emelec that opened a three-point lead in the second phase of the championship with Deportivo Cuenca losing 2-0 to Manta.

                    Barcos scored both for Copa Sudamericana holders LDU in their 2-1 home win in Wednesday's first leg of the South American Supercup against Estudiantes of Argentina, the 2009 Libertadores Cup winners.

                    Third-placed Barcelona recovered from their defeat by Manta the previous weekend to beat El Nacional 1-0 away with Argentine Matias Oyola scoring. It was former Uruguay international Mario Saralegui's first match as coach of El Nacional.


                    Coach Jose "Chemo" del Solar, whose Peru team finished bottom of the South American qualifiers for the 2010 World Cup, marked his first match in charge of Universitario with a 2-1 win over Sport Boys in the final round of the first phase of the championship.

                    A tough job awaits the 42-year-old former midfielder, however, with title holders Universitario going into the tough Group A for the second phase where they face traditional big rivals from the capital, Alianza Lima and Sporting Cristal, and first-phase winners San Martin.

                    The teams are divided into two groups of eight according to their final positions in the first-phase standings, the odd numbers in Group A and the evens in Group B.


                    Blooming won their top-of-the-table Clausura clash with The Strongest 2-1 at home in Santa Cruz de la Sierra thanks to goals by their Argentines Hernan Boyero, with a scissors kick, and Luis Sillero, who lobbed the goalkeeper.

                    It could turn out to be a costly trip for The Strongest.

                    They could be docked three points for an error by their Argentine coach Nestor Craviotto, for having one more than the regulation four foreign players on the pitch at the same time.

                    San Jose, who had been part of a three-way lead, also fell three points behind Blooming after a 3-2 loss at home to Real Potosi, who climbed to second.


                    Leaders Colo Colo were held 0-0 by relegation-threatened Nublense, who have gone 13 games without a win, in front of a crowd of 8,000 at the Nelson Oyarzun ground in the southern town of Chillan.

                    Title holders Colo Colo, whose Argentine striker Javier Campora was sent off three minutes from time, still pulled two points clear of Universidad Catolica who went down 3-1 away to Cobresal ending a run of 15 matches without defeat.

                    After 22 rounds, Colo Colo have 48 points and Catolica 46.


                    Title holders Atletico Junior, winners of the Apertura championship, lost 2-0 at home to Quindio in Barranquilla and languish near the bottom of the Clausura table with six points from six matches.

                    Independiente Santa Fe lost their unbeaten record in a 1-0 defeat by La Equidad, but not the lead in the championship as Deportes Tolima also crashed to their first defeat, 3-1 to Atletico Huila.

                    Santa Fe, who succumbed to a goal by La Equidad's Argentine forward Ariel Carreno, have 16 points from seven matches, one more point than Cucuta, who beat Deportivo Cali 2-1, and two ahead of Tolima and Huila.

                    Atletico Nacional beat Once Caldas 3-2 with two goals by Argentine Ezequiel Maggiolo while struggling Cali giants America were held 1-1 at home by Deportivo Pereira in their first match since the sacking of their coach, former Boca Juniors and Colombia defender Jorge Bermudez.


                    Libertad maintained their three-point lead with a 2-0 home win over title holders Guarani, while second-placed Cerro Porteno beat Rubio Nu 2-1 away with one of their goals coming from Argentine Roberto Nanni.

                    Olimpia, Paraguay's most successful club, ended a run of four matches without a win when they beat 3 de Febrero 2-0 to hand Uruguayan coach Luis Cubilla his first victory in the second match of his fifth spell at the helm.


                    Nacional, one of Uruguay's Big Two with Penarol, crashed to a shock 3-0 defeat by Fenix on the second weekend of the Apertura championship.

                    Promoted El Tanque Sisley are surprise sole leaders with a maximum six points after a 2-1 away win over Tacuarembo with both their goals coming from Sebastian Gaitan. However, champions Penarol have yet to play their first match.


                    The three-point lead champions Caracas FC had gained with a midweek victory over Carabobo was wiped out in a 1-0 defeat away to Yaracuyanos and Deportivo Tachira's 3-1 home win over Carabobo at the weekend.

                        So, what do you guys think of my country's National Team?

                        Miguel, I want to know your opinion since you always ask for my countrymen (due to Porto's particular interest in them).


                        • #27
                          I think Ospina is a very talented young goalkeeper. Yepes is like Peru's Acasiete, the experience all NT needs. And Ive always been a big fan of Falcao

                            Peru Line Up vs Canada

                            Fernandez (GK) is young and talented, curious to see how he does in the NT. Center defence looks great, we also have Galiquio for that position, he can also play as RB too. On the fullbacks, Im not so sure, but I guess this is the best time to try things out. Midfield looks great, although I would play Torres instead of Ramirez. In attack we have the 2 men who r definitely Pizarro's and Guerrero's subs, these young players are very talented, but personally I prefer Pizarro and Guerrero up in front.

                                Ha. I dont really know much about Colombia as the press coverage about South American football in Portugal is very little, even less at International level.

                                But looking at the squad (I know around 3/4's of those players), you aren't far from Chile or Paraguay, could easily challenge for a World Cup spot. Just need Falcao to start scoring like he does for Porto
