Extractions: Sports and Politics in Balkan Societies Igor Lasic, AIM Zagreb Sport is having a difficult time recovering from political power-mongers. The dust has yet to settle after last year's initiative launched by Slovenia to organize an Adriatic Basketball League for the countries of the former Yugoslavia. In search of better pay and competitions of higher quality, athletes have supported the initiative, but politicians are preventing them from settling the matter. The conclusion is that maybe one day such a league could be organized, but no one dares to say how long it will take... Changes are slow and slight, but they exist. They can be noticed in the gradual abandoning of collectivistic patterns, and in the popularization of certain individual sports. Thanks to successes in skiing and swimming, the public felt the change and responded with obvious sympathy. This means that it is undergoing a period of mental rehabilitation.

Extractions: Every country will have it's young talents. Some will fade, others will lead successful, though not exceptional, careers and a select few will reach the pinnacle of World Soccer. To suggest anything Australian will feature prominently at the top of World soccer may seem laughable but there are a few points to consider. Firstly we are, as we speak, seeing the emergence of Africa as a soccer power and posing a threat to the Europe/South America domination of the game. In the lead up to this African emergence we saw increasing numbers of African players play in, and star, in European leagues. Also outstanding performances in the FIFA sponsored youth competitions by African nations have earmarked a lot of their youngsters for future international careers. Australia currently has over 90 players in overseas (mainly European) competition of which an increasing number play in the first division of their respective leagues, and command regular places. Consider the presence of Robbie Slater at Blackburn in England, Ned Zelic at Borussia Dortmund in Germany and Aurelio Vidmar at Standard Liege in Belgium. All teams challenging for league championship. In addition Australia has come fourth in the past two under 20 world championships and also achieved fourth place at the Barcelona Olympics and reached the Quarterfinals of the 1988 games. Increasingly, European clubs are looking to Australia for skilled young players both for their skill and the relatively cheap transfer prices. While this affects the standard of play in the local leagues it does expose Australian players to world class competition on a regular basis. Which bodes well for Australian representative sides.

Pineda, a defender, snuck down the left side of the pitch as Argentina (3-0-0 in Group H) pushed the ball through the middle. Midfielder Ariel Ortega sent a pass to the left to Pineda, who chested down the ball and flicked a 12-yard shot over Croatia goalkeeper Drazen Ladic. The two-time champions became just the second team to run the table in group play, joining host France. But 'keeper Carlos Roa became the first to turn in three clean sheets as Argentina whitewashed Group H counterparts Japan, Jamaica and Croatia all World Cup debutants by a 7-0 aggregate. Argentina will play the runner-up of Group G, which will be either Romania, England or Colombia. That match will take place at Saint-Etienne.

AS SOCCER DIGEST CONTINUES TO celebrate its silver anniversary, we look back at the best club teams in the worldfrom Europe, South America, and even the United Statesduring the magazine's lifetime. This was no simple task. Winning the European Cup or the Champions League (which replaced the former competition in 1992) did not necessarily translate into a place in the top 25. And, because a quarter of a century is such a wide expanse, teams are allowed to be listed multiple times. For example, it would be unfair to mix the Bayern Munich teams of the 1970s with the ones of recent vintage. It would be even worse to have to choose between the two editions.

Extractions: Gannett News Service (Friday, June 26, 1998) It will be Argentina vs. England . . . in the second round of the 1998 World Cup. That's the result of Argentina winning Group H, as expected, and England finishing second in Group G, which was not expected, as first-round play concluded today. The two teams collide Tuesday in a match that shares the second-round spotlight with the Yugoslavia-Netherlands game Monday. England, led by two first-half goals, one by midfielder David Beckham returning from a controversial two-game benching, easily downed Colombia 2-0 while Romania rallied to tie winless Tunisia 1-1 to win Group G. Argentina handled Croatia 1-0 in a battle of Group H unbeatens, with both teams advancing. Jamaica provided some solace for CONCACAF by posting its first victory, 2-1, against Japan, which was one of two teams to lose all three games and finished 31st. The other was the United States, which wound up dead-last, 32nd, with a minus-four goal differential, compared with Japan's minus-three.
