Good on Oggy,well done on captaining the Champion Club in the ACL
http://theworldgame.sbs.com.au/news/...awesome-moment


Sasa savours 'awesome' moment
14 November 2010-SBS EXCLUSIVE: Philip Micallef

Australian defender Sasa Ognenovski admitted he did not have enough words to describe his feelings after leading Korean club Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma to AFC Champions League glory on Saturday night.

Five days after being selected in Australia's national squad for the first time, the Melbourne-born defender played a starring role in Seongnam's 3-1 victory over Iran's Zob Ahan in the final in Tokyo.

Ognenovski opened the scoring with an opportunistic goal in the first half and his polished performance earned him the man of the match award to go with the most valuable player title for the whole tournament.

"I just can't describe it, it's unbelievable," captain Ognenovski, 31, told The World Game later.

"It's an awesome, awesome feeling.

"I always told myself to persist at whatever I do and all the hard work I have done the last few years has paid off.

"Hopefully on Wednesday I'll get to play for my country for the first time."

Ognenovski will have little time to savour the honour of becoming the first Australian male to win an Asian honour.

After a short sleep in Tokyo he will be on a direct flight to Cairo where he will meet up with the Socceroos' squad on Monday in preparation for the friendly match against Egypt on Thursday (AEDT).

"I'm over the moon after the national call-up," he said.

"I had given up hope of playing for Australia with all the young players coming through.

"My only chance was that my club form warranted something."

Ognenovski's rapid rise to continental stardom does not end here.

The former Queensland Roar and Adelaide United star who played for the Reds in the 2008 ACL final against Gamba Osaka is one of the favourites to take out the AFC player of the year award in Kuala Lumpur on November 24.

And in the following month he should lead Seongnam in the FIFA Club World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.

Seongnam will face European champion Inter Milan in the semi-finals provided it beats the winner of a preliminary match between UAE's Al Wahda and Papua New Guinea's Hekari United in the quarter-finals.

AFC defends awards policy
13 November 2010-AFC

President Mohamed Bin Hammam has strongly defended the Asia Football Confederation policy of honouring only those players who are present on the night of its Annual Awards.

The AFC president, who is in Tokyo to attend the AFC Champions League final on Saturday night, was speaking to Japan’s leading news agency Kyodo News.

“It is AFC’s philosophy to invite only those players who can attend the awards function,” said Bin Hammam.

“If the player is absent then it is like a wedding party in which the groom is absent in front of so many guests.

“There are around 400-500 people waiting at the venue to hail your achievement and success but if the main guest is absent the ceremony has no value!”

Bin Hammam said careful thought had gone into the framing of this criteria.

“When we introduced this criteria for the AFC Player of the Year, we considered football league calendars which might prevent the player from attending the ceremony and receiving the award.

“So the maximum we can do is manage the awards night date to accommodate players who want to attend.

Japanese player Keisuke Honda, who is a nominee for the award, has expressed his inability to attend the function.

Australia's nominees for the award to be given on November 24 in Kuala Lumpur are Everton's Tim Cahiil and Seongnam's Sasa Ognenovski.

Player of the Year: AFC announces first list
Tuesday, 02 November 2010 14:25
Kuala Lumpur: AFC has announced the first list of candidates for the coveted 2010 AFC Player of the Year award.

The award will be presented at the AFC Annual Awards gala, which will be held at the Sunway Resort Hotel and Spa here in the Malaysian capital on November 24, 2010.

The list of 15 players includes Japan star Keisuke Honda, Korea Republic captain Park Ji-sung and Australian Tim Cahill.

Honda and Park played key roles in their team’s progress to the second round of the 2010 FIFA World Cup while Cahill impressed in his side’s campaign in South Africa.

Iran and Esteghlal striker Farhad Majidi, 2010 AFC Champions League finalists Zob Ahan defender Farshid Talebi, Al Qadsia and Kuwait ace Bader Al Mutawa, who missed out on the honour in 2006 by finishing second to Qatar’s Khalfan Ibrahim, and Al Karamah’s Jordanian import Hasan Abdel Fattah, who has now joined Jordan side Al Wehdat, have also made it to the list.

Australian Sasa Ognenovski, who has captained Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma to the final of the AFC Champions League this year, Sepahan’s Mohsen Bengar, Pohang Steelers’ Kim Hyun-gil, Korea Republic’s Lee Dong-gook, Saudi Arabia and Al Hilal defender Osama Hawsawi and China’s Li Weifeng, who struts his stuff for Korean outfit Suwon Bluewings, Qatar and Al Rayyan hitman Fabio Cesar, and Bahrain and Al Riffa midfielder Husain Salman complete the initial list.

The candidates have been chosen based on MVP points awarded by Match Commissioners and the AFC’s Technical Study Group officers.

This initial list will be updated again in the coming weeks. One of the key criteria for winning the award is the confirmation of the nominees’ attendance for the awards night.

List of candidates for 2010 AFC Player of the Year nominees (in alphabetical order; as of November 2, 2010)

Bader Al Mutawa (Kuwait/Al Qadsia, Kuwait)

That is the worst awards policy in history. How can you play the best football in your region and then miss out because you have a game the next day? Or even during the award ceremony, it's total garbage. Show a video or give it to them before the award and tell them to keep it a secret, film it and show it on the night. There are a multitude of ways to get around it. But hey these people are idiots.

AUSTRALIA will not face the same mountain that has eclipsed Brazil's proposed 12 FIFA World Cup stadiums for the 2014 tournament. Football Federation Australia chief executive Ben Buckley said Australia would deliver the venues promised to FIFA without major glitches.

Brazil is locked in a dilemma only four years out from the sporting spectacular, with its government and Sao Paolo state authorities battling over financing of the proposed redevelopment of Estadio Morumbi. FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke has described Brazil's lack of advancement as "amazing".

In contrast, Buckley said Australia did not have any issues. "The plan that we put forward is the plan we will execute," Buckley said. "There won't be any need to have future negotiations between the states and venues."Buckley said Australia would have 12 proposed FIFA-compliant stadiums ready for 2022, which would leave an estimated $4 billion infrastructure legacy.

Nine of the stadiums are operational, while three will be built for the 64-game tournament. Sydney and Melbourne will jostle for the final and opening match of the World Cup, while the other cities are set to earn important groups and host world champion nations. "We did the homework and we spent the time with the states," Buckley said. "There's a progressive schedule that already has been mapped out and fully costed and we're very confident it will be delivered on time.

"The good aspect of our plan - and one of the unique features - is that it would provide a legacy pre the World Cup. "A number of the stadiums that will be upgraded and will be used by other sports will be developed in advance of the World Cup. There's a pre- and post-legacy, which is really positive."

Australia also will set up popular Fans Fest locations in 12 cities around the country. FIFA introduced the concept at the 2006 tournament in Germany for supporters who couldn't get to matches. More than 18 million fans watched the matches on the 39 video walls at Fans Fest venues. That number dwarfed the 3.4 million total attendance at the 12 stadiums.

Isn't Australia playing Egypt on Nov 17th? Then Everton have 2 games on Nov 22nd and Nov 27th, which probably means no chance for Tim Cahill to be there in Malaysia.

Australia has been going up for a while and when the time came they took their chance and they are still going up. The current preliminary points have them at number 20 in the world. I have no doubt that if Australia did not choose a moron for a manager previously, Australia would be inside the top 10 teams on the planet because they were 14 at one stage. That is how far football in Australia has come. The team play as a unit, they back each other, they have the skills, the team is physically strong, the team now has a quality manager and they play till the very end. These guys have had to battle for their sport in Australia and Australians are tough in general but these footballers, when they put on that Australian Socceroos shirt, tough does not describe who they are. They are warriors for the cause and which is why I think it was so important for Australia to get a quality manager because the commitment of these guys is undoubted but the tactics were terrible and there was no doubt previously there was a bit of concern in the back of these players minds, now they don't have to worry about that. They believe in their manager to the same level as their commitment and dedication. They get their chance at the African champions shortly.

I bet there were plenty of people doubting whether the Socceroos would be top 100 material once upon a time. If you work out the predicted position for the Australian team in 2012, it comes out as the number 9 team on the planet.
