Extractions: Clearing the pitch at the Valerenga and Norwegian National Stadium as Chelsea practice LONDON (AP) Chelsea has a 3-0 edge on Norway's Valerenga and Lokomotiv Moscow is up 3-0 on Israel's Maccabi Haifa, commanding leads as they play away Thursday in second-leg quarterfinals of the Cup Winners Cup. And then there's Lazio. The Roman side takes a lopsided 4-0 advantage into its home leg with Panionios Athens, prompting coach Sven Goran Eriksson to rest as many as eight starters including strikers Marcelo Salas, Christian Vieri, playmaker Roberto Mancini and starting 'keeper Luca Marchegiani. Chelsea goes to Norway without French defenders Marcel Desailly and Frank Leboeuf. Desailly has a hamstring injury and Leboeuf is nursing a sore thigh. "We have a big match on Sunday at Aston Villa and want to make sure we can get our best possible team out for that," said Chelsea player-coach Gianluca Vialli, whose club has slipped to third in England behind Manchester United and Arsenal. Valerenga's top forward John Carew is nursing a knee injury but should play. Chelsea's Norwegian forward Tore Andre Flo said his English side would be looking to regroup after a disappointing home loss last weekend to West Ham. "We still have much to gain this season, and we need to find our winning shape again against Valerenga," he said. "A victory would give us a massive lift. The last two games [West Ham and Man United] we've had problems in both ends of the field. We have to get better defensively and stronger in our attacking game," Flo added.

Extractions: var cm_role = "live" var cm_host = "angelfire.lycos.com" var cm_taxid = "/memberembedded" Most experts pick Brazil to repeat as world champions. Brazil is so deep that it's bench is filled with players who are good enough to start for nearly any other finalist. Three of the top five vote-getters in "World Soccer" magazine's 1997 Player of the Year poll are Brazilians: Ronaldo, the world's most exciting striker; defender and extraordinary free-kick artist Roberto Carlos; and Juninho, a masterful playmaker. While Brazil has always had great offensive players, it's defense occasionally has let it down. But Coach Mario Zagallo has built a superb defensive team that's anchored by Cafu and Aldair. A leg injury to Juninho and the fact that several of Brazil's top players have missed important World Cup preparation matches because of commitments to their European clubs are Brazil's only negatives. Brazil's Ronaldo Scotland has yet to get beyond the first round of any World Cup. Veteran forwards Gordon Durie and Ally McCoist hope to change that. Durie had the clinching score against Latvia that earned Scotland its eighth World Cup berth, and McCoist is a regular scorer for the national team and his club, the Rangers of Scotland's first division. Keeper Jim Leighton and a stingy Scottish defense ended qualifying with a run of 297 minutes without giving up a goal. Scotland's Gordon Durie In 1970, Morocco became the first African nation to appear in a World Cup. The '98 squad is a long shot but has several plusses. It is coached by foormer French national-team star Henri Michel, who coached France to a fourth-place World Cup finish in '86. Morocco has several starters who play for European clubs. And the experience gained during its three one-goal losses in USA '94 should prove valuable. Midfield organizer Mustapha Hadji, 26, is the most promising of a new generation of good yound players. The team's best player, however, may be veteran defender Noureddine Naybet. Also keep an eye out for striker Saladdine Bassir, who was a prolific goalscorer during the qualifying stages.

Extractions: /sport/soccer Home Business Times readRight Big Break ... Contents 19 July 1998 JUDGING purely on form during the World Cup, no fewer than seven members of the successful French team seem worthy of a place in a line-up of the tournament's best performers. And, unthinkable as the proposition might previously have been, not a single Brazilian is worth a place. The French defence, in particular, deserves recognition for conceding only two goals in seven matches, with the selection en masse in a "best" line-up of Fabien Barthez, Lilian Thuram, Marcel Desailly, Laurent Blanc and Bixente Lizarazu as a proven unit. The World Cup's single most significant performance was the two-goal heading blitz of France's astute Zinedane Zidane in the final against Brazil and this, allied to his uncanny perception, makes him an automatic choice for a World Cup XI. Despite Chile's second-round elimination, the explosive Marcelo Salas had the tournament's highest scoring rate - four goals in four games - and impressed as much as anyone. Partnering Salas in the striking role almost automatically would be Croatia's Golden Boot winner, Davor Sukor, who scored six goals despite a limited service and looked dangerous whenever he gained possession. Midfield dynamos Juan Veron (Argentina) and Edgar Davids (Holland) stood out for both skill and effort, and France's Emmanuel Petit edges out half-a-dozen other contenders for the same reasons.

Extractions: /sport/soccer/ Home Business Times readRight Big Break ... Contents 09 August 1998 CHARITY always begins at the home of English football - but there is certain to be little of it on display should David Beckham appear in today's curtain-raising spectacular at Wembley between Arsenal and Manchester United. The United and England midfielder has an ankle injury which may keep him out the match and spare him an early taste of the abuse he will face from opposing fans this season. Beckham's dismissal for a petulant if innocuous kick in the World Cup quarterfinal against Argentina is widely regarded as having killed off England's World Cup bid. But otherwise the English game begins the season in rude health - not that all that many Englishmen will be playing in it. Bolstered by the teasing illusion that England might have won the World Cup but for Beckham's rashness, and confirmed this week as the world's richest league, English football's domestic renaissance shows no signs of abating. Tomorrow provides an opportunity to assess the two teams over whom the rest are most likely to have to clamber to reach the top of the Premiership. Charity Shield form, though, is notoriously fickle.

Extractions: Vialli ejected Click here for more on this story Posted: Tuesday December 07, 1999 06:45 PM Frank Leboeuf of Chelsea and Simone Inzaghi of Lazio fight for control of the ball. Ben Radford/Allsport ROME (AP) Lazio tried a series of attacking combinations to no avail and settled for a 0-0 Champions League draw Tuesday against Chelsea , which saw coach Gianluca Vialli ejected early in the second half. Vialli, a former Italian national team member who played 12 Serie A seasons before joining Chelsea in the Premier League in 1996, was sent to the locker room 10 minutes after halftime for yelling animatedly at the linesman along the sideline. "I certainly did something wrong and I excuse myself for that. The linesman made a mistake and I lost it a bit," Vialli said. "It was not a spectacular game. The rhythm was a bit bland. But I take that as a sign that Lazio respected us and was afraid of us." Chelsea nearly gave the game away with eight minutes left before a crowd of about 35,000 at Olympic Stadium.
