WC2002 U.S. Television Schedule Time Zone -- With World Cup 2002 taking place on the other side of the world, many US soccer fans are struggling to watch live soccer games, especially on the east coast. The toughest time slots are 2:25am and 4:55am leaving the only manageable game at 7:25am. West coast viewers may have a 3 hour advantage, but in general: Gentlemen -- start your VCRs!

Congratulations to Claudio Reyna on his selection to the 16-member World Cup All-Star squad!

2 - 0 Brasil win record 5th World Cup Championship in style - (Jun 30) About 30% of the world watched two of the best teams in the world battle for soccer bragging rights. But when all was said and done, Brasil proved once again that the rest of the world was clearly playing for 2nd place in this World Cup. Brasil captured their unprecendented 5th World Cup Championship in style remaining the lone squad with a perfect record in WC2002 (7-0-0!) A flurry of chances got the dream matchup underway, but then both sides settled in for deliberate, if not ugly play for the remainder of the first half -- the lone exception being Kleberson's majestic blast which cleanly beat German keeper Oliver Kahn only to slam the crossbar (45'.) Fortunately, the 2nd half action really picked up in this match featuring all 3 leaders for the coveted "golden boot" awarded to the tournament's top goal scorer. Entering the match, Ronaldo had a slim one goal lead over teammate, Rivaldo and opponent, Miroslav Klose. But Ronaldo scored 2 goals in an 11 minute span (68' & 79') to win: the "golden boot" title (8 goals,) the 2002 World Cup for Brasil and most likely, the "golden ball" awarded on Tuesday to the tournament's MVP! Certainly an impressive accomplishment for the Brasilian superstar -- and by the way, he also tied Brasilian soccer god, Pele for the all-time goal scoring lead (12.) Overall, a wonderful finale to a tremendous tounament. Congratulations to Brasil!

1 - 0 Brasil victory over Turkey sets up historic final match - (Jun 26) Brasil did not overwhelm upset-minded Turkey, but Brasil did enough to pocket the victory and advance to the Finals! Even without suspended midfield threat, Ronaldinho, Brasil was able to attack with regularity against the diminutive Turkish squad. After a scoreless first period, Ronaldo regained his scoring touch with the lone tally of the match early in the second half (49'.) Ronaldo took a pass and was "escorted" into the box by 4 Turkish defenders but none could prevent his right-footed "stab" past the keeper and into the far right corner. Turkey did well to compete with the South Americans and they had more than just a handful of quality chances. However, it was not to be for the surprising Turks who will now face S. Korea in the 3rd place match. 4-time World Cup winners Brasil, move forward to take on 3-time World Champions, Germany. A German victory will tie them with Brasil for the most World Championships -- but Brasil are favored to capture their unprecedented 5th World Cup Championship. Add to the drama that these two soccer juggernauts have NEVER met in a World Cup match -- much less a World Cup FINAL match!! An absolute dream finale to a wonderful global soccer tournament. Enjoy the show!

1 - 0 Costly German victory ends S. Korea's WC2002 dream - (Jun 25) Germany used their superior height and strength to pressure the crowd-insprired Korean squad during the majority of the match. Korea withstood the German assault until Michael Ballack hammered home his own rebound (75',) propelling Deutschland to their 7th World Cup Final match. However, German joy was tempered with Ballack's costly yellow card booking (71',) preventing the "irreplaceable" German leader from playing in the WC2002 Final showcase! Korea played valiantly and defended passionately with all 10 field players behind the ball and usually behind midfield. Korea attempted to follow the strategy employed by the US in their quarterfinal match versus Germany by counter-attacking against the larger but slower-footed Germans. The Koreans achieved modest success with this approach but other than a shot requiring a brilliant Oliver Kahn save (8',) Korea's best opportunities resulted after they allowed the sole German tally. The Korean defense finally broke down in the 75th minute when counter-attacking Oliver Neuville carried deep down the right flank. The evasive Neuville centered a perfect ball onto the foot of the streaking Ballack who knocked home his own rebound for the lone score of the match. Germany now faces either Brasil or Turkey in the June 30th finale of this tremendous world soccer showcase!

1 - 0 Turkey's "Golden Goal" sets up rematch with Brasil - (Jun 22) In the first match of group C qualifying on June 3rd, Turkey was tied with Brasil 1-1 until Brasil was awarded a dubious penalty kick in the 87th minute. Rivaldo converted the kick and Brasil won the match 2-1 -- resulting in "dark horse" Turkey's sole blemish of the tournament. So Turkey's golden goal victory over Senegal was even sweeter because of the rematch it sets up versus Brasil. This match featured two of the most physical and aggressive teams in the tournament and both teams held nothing back. Once again, for the first 90 miutes, excellent scoring chances by both sides repeatedly resulted in nothing more than "close calls." Senegal's Diouf, Camara and Fadiga and Turkey's Sas and Sukur all had great opportunities to score but nothing to show for it until overtime. Just 4 minutes into extra-time, mohawked hero of the Japan match, Davila crossed the ball to 67' sub Ilhan Mansiz at the edge of the box. Mansiz finished a beautiful side-volley past the keeper and into the net, securing Turkey's spot in the semis and setting up their rematch against group C foe, Brasil.

1 - 0 S. Korea advance to semis with PK victory over Spain - (Jun 22) This "clash of the titans" featured two undefeated squads: Spain was a perfect 4-0 and S. Korea had won 3 matches and tied just one (the U.S.) The S. Korean squad broke more new ground with their impressive penalty kick victory over talented, but conservative Spain. This was Spain's second consecutive elimination game decided by penalty kicks. However, this time, the S. Koreans did not miss their kicks (as did the Irish) and Spain's "PK specialist" Casillas was not a factor. S. Korea converted all 5 of their pk attempts whereas Joaquin's miss opened the door for the clinching goal by S. Korean captain Myung Bo Hong -- igniting the scarlet celebration in Gwangju, South Korea! Spain had the greater number of chances during the match, including two called back goals and a shot by Morientes off the post, but S. Korea also produced some excellent chances. Considering all the quality chances, it's quite amazing that no goals were scored during 120 minutes of play! Host nation S. Korea now faces off against Germany, who are coming off their unimpressive 1-0 win over the U.S.
