Extractions: First Published: Mar 20, 2002 Brazilian striker Romario has been cleared after fears he had contracted dengue fever. Vasco da Gama club doctor Fernando Mattar claimed earlier this week that an illness contracted by Romario could have been the dengue fever bug after he confirmed the veteran striker was suffering from a viral infection. But Romario has now been given the all-clear after his health scare: "The temperature has fallen, and Romario doesn't have pains anymore. People having fever do not generally recover so quickly so we think it's only a virus infection," the doctor told 'AS'. Vasco meet Botafogo tomorrow night but Romario is unlikely to start the game.

Extractions: An explanation of Cricket The physics of legspin bowling by Mike Whitaker Introduction I will freely admit to getting progressively more annoyed by successive websites' and TV commentators' attempts to unravel the mysteries of Messrs. Warne, Mushtaq, Strang and the like. Far too many seem to get caught up in the hype and hysteria surrounding the art, and apparently ignore basic physics in their descriptions of the various deliveries. Let me set my credentials out: I bowl the stuff - physically, no, I don't bowl it very well, but I understand what it's MEANT to do. I passed A-level physics. I own the Ritchie Benaud MCC coaching video on the subject. I watch Warne, Strang, Mushtaq, Afridi, even Salisbury avidly every chance I get. And I play other sports involving spinning balls well enough to understand how a ball behaves when it's spun. There is no mystery to legspin, beyond that of actually reading it! If you know how the ball is spinning, you can predict its behaviour in the air and off the wicket. Just because Shane Warne has bowled it, it won't behave any differently if spun the same way by anyone else.

Avec 70 buts marqués en 87 rencontres disputées sous le maillot brésilien, Romario est le deuxième meilleur buteur de l'histoire de la Seleção derrière Pelé. En 2005, Romario a l'intention de mettre sur pied un match d'adieu au stade Maracana à Rio. «Je jouerai une mi-temps avec le maillot de Vasco et l'autre avec celui de Flamengo», a expliqué Romario, qui ne souhaite pas en revanche porter le maillot de Fluminense, le club qu'il a quitté en octobre après avoir critiqué l'entraîneur. Le mois dernier, le Brésilien a déjà fêté la fin de sa carrière internationale en marquant deux buts qui ont permis à l'équipe du Brésil version 1994 de battre 2-1 une sélection de joueurs mexicains ayant eux aussi disputé le Mondial cette année-là. Ce match célébrait également le départ à la retraite du gardien mexicain Jorge Campos.

Extractions: Veteran striker Romario was summoned to the Brazil ian national beach-soccer team that will participate in the heat for the World Cup that will be held in May, in Brazil. "Here in the sand I feel a certain difficulty to control the ball, which always comes high," said Romario in remarks reproduced Tuesday by the press after training. "I am playing with the top players of the world, which to me is an honor, and I can still learn," he added. Although the national team is already qualified as Brazil is hosting the event, Brazilian coach Jorge Ferreira wished the national team to participate in the heat as preparation. Ferreira said the inclusion of Romario in the national team will give good publicity to the competition and attract public.
Extractions: Land The new coach for the national soccer team is Wanderley Luxemburgo da Silva, 46. He is the 36th man to occupy the post. As expected, the Brazilian media are treating him with kid gloves. Rodolfo Espinoza An offensive bathroom door on soccer star Romário's recently-opened bar in Rio has been brought down by the justice. It was a victory for Mário Lobo Zagallo, the man who last June and July coached the Brazilian soccer squad in the French fields into a second-place in the World Cup. Zagallo is also suing for $1 million in damages for a painting on the door that showed him with his pants down sitting on a toilet. All of this happened weeks before the Bar do Gol, located in the Barra da Tijuca neighborhood, was even opened to the public. Romário alleged that the drawing was an homage to the coach and that the door was going to be auctioned after three months with the money going to charity. Zagallo didn't buy the explanation and accused the player of using the caricature as retaliation for being cut from the national team 10 days before the start of the Cup. The reason for the cut was a calf muscle injury, which two months after the Cup's final game is still plaguing the striker. New Blood By the way, the new coach in the land where 10 out of 10 are born with the soccer coach genes, is Wanderley Luxemburgo da Silva, 46. He is the 36th man to occupy the much-coveted and ulcer-inducing post. As expected, the media have been giving him the honeymoon treatment despite his habit of using rococo terminology and expressions that don't make too much sense and his insistence on always wearing a suit in the European tradition even during the games he is coaching. He dresses in Giorgio Armanis, Gianni Versaces, Tweeds, and Vila Romanas and is believed to have an extensive collection of ties to go with 120 shirts and 30 suits. Forty pairs of shoes complete his wardrobe.

Extractions: If the people who promote soccer in America can calm down and keep things in perspective, I will join the chorus of voices announcing the World Cup a qualified success. There's a lot to recommend about a sport in which the action goes on without commercial interruption. Meanwhile, the identities of some of the best foreign players are slowly seeping through my provincial American skull. If, three weeks from now, I can't recall the names of Bebeto, Romario, Baggio or even the USA's Eric Wynalda, well, it's been a good summer run, an interesting learning experience, a nice change of pace from baseball's scratching and spitting. For a modest emotional investment, this American soccer semiliterate has found himself getting quite a kick out of the World Cup. Three weeks ago, World Cup fever was not catching in America. Now it is. Any report on How America Spent Its Summer Vacation will have to include a lot about the Cup. Sometimes it seems as if the depressing national gawkfest over O.J. Simpson is sucking the air out of actual sporting events in this country. Fourth of July, then, was a welcome break from the courtroom and speculation about DNA and hair samples. It was a time for America to watch Brazil beat the United States, 1-0, in a game that was billed as the most anticipated soccer moment in American history. True, that's not saying much. Also, Americans were more curious than passionate about the game.

Soccer is a "way of life" for millions of Brazilians and exerts an immense influence in a social context. However, soccer could be used in a more appropriate way by its inclusion in Brazil's schools. The purpose of this paper is to understand the unique characteristics and social impact of soccer in Brazil.
