  • Interview with Nemanja Vidic

    June 12, 2010

    On Serbia's Preparations:

    We didn't have a great result against New Zealand, it was very disappointing and we have thought a lot about the mistakes we made, which is obviously very important to be able to improve our performances. We have been working hard to pick up our fitness, and eliminate these mistakes so we can achieve some good form in the tournament. It's much better for us to lose in the friendlies than in the World Cup!

    Yes. It has begun. PUMAFootball went with many more crazy football aficionados and watched the game at PUMA City in New York. We all knew it was going to be epic, all they had to do was have kick-off and this World Cup was already making history. The first time ever the World Cup is being played on African soil. A symbol and message that is perhaps bigger than football itself.

    Leaving Germany for the flight to South Africa with the Algeria team felt momentous. The Desert Foxes all seemed to be equally focused and excited. Everyone cheered when the plane that was decorated for the occasion, cruised up to the jet way for boarding.

    June 07, 2010

    It is 24 years since Algeria last qualified for a World Cup and now having done so at the expense of bitter rivals Egypt, the Desert Foxes face the challenge of qualifying from a tough Group C which includes England, Slovenia and the USA. To succeed they'll need the power and goals of AEK Athens striker Rafik Djebbour. Talking exclusively to PUMAFootball following a Les Fennecs training session in Germany, the French-born forward talks frankly about the team's World Cup tactics, the dark side of football and why Wayne Rooney is a typical Algerian!

    The afternoon training yesterday was high-spirited (maybe shopping has that effect?) We noticed something quite unique about the method the Algerians have to start off to kick-start the training. They played a game in a circle where they passed the ball kicking with the foot. If the ball hits the ground, the one who let it fall gets flicked on the ear by their teammates.
