Fury as FIFA finds a field of dreams in China

Images of a beaming Fut Coins president Sepp Blatter and a small blue certificate in the Chinese city of Zibo proclaim it as the birthplace of football, to the fury of English experts.

A map in Zibo's Qi State History Museum shows a thin line stretching from China to Egypt, then to Greece, Rome and France, before finishing in England, commonly known as the home of football after the rules were codified there in the 19th century.

The track represents the path of football's development, according to the museum, with the certificate -- signed by Blatter -- honouring China as "the cradle of the earliest forms of football".

But international experts are sceptical of such claims, pointing to a "tenuous" link between the ancient Chinese game of cuju and the modern sport, and questioning FIFA's motives.

Despite its long supposed footballing history China's national team failed to qualify for the World Cup in Brazil later this month.

China has only appeared at one final tournament, in 2002, when they lost all three of their group matches and went out without even scoring a goal.

But millions of fans will be watching the tournament and in Zibo -- the modern city on the site of the ancient Qi state's capital Linzi -- football is booming.

Statues of cuju players stand on street corners and posters on bus shelters depict the supposed forebear of the modern game.

"I really like Sepp Blatter," beams Zhu Shuju, vice director at the separate Zibo Football Museum, which pays homage to the sport's history and gives huge prominence to Blatter and other FIFA officials.

"He is very popular here," she added, surrounded by images of Blatter and with a video of his speech confirming Zibo's status continuously looping in the background.

Zibo has invited Brazilian superstar Pele to open a new multi-million dollar museum later this year.

- 'Absurd' and 'tenuous' -

Different types of cuju existed in ancient China, but the competitive game still played today involves keeping a leather ball stuffed with feathers off the ground without using arms or hands, before heading or kicking it though a hole above head height.

A gladiatorial version with much physical contact emerged in the Warring States period which unified China almost 2,500 years ago, and was popular with soldiers exercising their legs after days on horseback.

But experts outside China believe there are huge differences between cuju and modern football.

"I find it absurd to suggest ancient Chinese had comparable mentalities as football enthusiasts today," Ellis Cashmore, professor of culture, media and sport at Britain's Staffordshire University told AFP via email. "So the link is tenuous."

Historians say other ball sports existed around the same time as cuju emerged, including a Greek game known as episkyros.

An ancient stone carving at the Acropolis Museum in Athens shows a naked Greek athlete balancing a ball on his thigh, and some say episkyros evolved into a game played by the Romans, called harpastum, which was then transported to Britain.

There the modern game was born when the Football Association rules, drawing on a public school mob game, were written by Ebenezer Cobb Morley in 1863, and have since changed very little.

For British historian Tom Holland, football began in the 19th century.

"I'm afraid I don't know anything about the classical origins of football, for the simple reason they don't exist," he said.

"Kicking something around is an obvious human activity," he added. "That various peoples, in various parts of the world, may or may not have engaged in such activities, does not prove that they were the originators of football."

British football author Jonathan Wilson agreed, saying that the 1863 rules "were then spread across the world by British sailors and traders".

"At no point did they come upon a local form of football that needed to be eradicated before the British game could take root," he said.

"Rather foreign cultures took on those laws and interpreted them in their own way."

- 'New territories' -

Eyebrows were raised when FIFA came out in support of China's claims.

"Blatter sees his brief to make football the richest sport in history and he has already achieved that," said Cashmore, whose book "Football's Dark Side" explores corruption in the game.

"But to maintain its commercial dominance, he needs to keep conquering new territories.

"China is obvious: huge territory, an economy that's been growing like a blur and a population that has already shown enthusiasm for the sport."

FIFA and Blatter have been criticised for several decisions in recent years, most vociferously over the controversial award of the 2022 World Cup to a tiny Gulf emirate that has immense gas wealth but sweltering summer temperatures.

British historian Guy Walters, from London's New College of the Humanities, FIFA 14 Coins told AFP: "Frankly, I'm surprised he hasn't stated that the game kicked off in the ancient deserts of Qatar."

Brazil turned match into a war so they have to accept casualties

The car was speeding down Rio’s eastern motorway in the direction of Copacabana. The driver dodged from lane to lane but he wasn’t paying any attention to the road. Instead his eyes were fixed on the little TV screen suspended from the windshield. The habit of watching television while driving at high speed is disturbingly common in Brazil. The car zoomed into the tunnel on Avenida Princesa Isabela and I thought of that Cheap FIFA 14 Coins other princess, who died many years ago.

The TV was showing A Falta.

Neymar braces to shield the ball, Juan Camilo Zúñiga jumps and his knee crunches into Neymar’s lower back. The next image is of Neymar, his chin buried in the grass, screaming in pain. The voiceover was saying things like “agressão” and “violencia”.

“Assassinato!” the driver shouted.

It was an insensitive choice of word considering Colombia’s history at the World Cup, but Brazil takes its own World Cups rather seriously. This is a country in which a nationally famous playwright, Nelson Rodrigues, can, without much irony, refer to the defeat in the 1950 World Cup final as “our Hiroshima”. The footage of Zúñiga breaking Neymar’s back has become Brazil’s Zapruder film.

It was the second day of the World Cup quarter finals but Messi, Robben and the rest seemed like intruders on private grief. At half-time in the first quarter-final between Argentina and Belgium, Brazilian TV did not show a second of replays or analysis.

Broken prince

Nobody cared about Higuain’s goal. Instead they cut straight to a live news feed that showed several men standing around beside a helicopter in which, viewers understood, the young prince of Brazilian football lay broken.

Eventually one guy shuffled to one side and the camera caught a glimpse of Neymar’s face in the shadows. Somehow he knew he was on TV and he lifted his hand, the pulse monitor still attached to his index finger, and gave a thumbs up.

Before the Netherlands-Costa Rica game that afternoon, Neymar released a video thanking the nation for its support and promising that the remaining 22 players of Brazil would go on to win the World Cup. Even with eyes reddened and puffy from crying, he showed himself to be a remarkably natural television communicator. He is this country’s Princess Diana and also its Bill Clinton.

When the feed cut back to the studio, grief-stricken women were wiping away tears. The audience rose to applaud and chant “Neymar! Neymar! Neymar!” Aliens could have invaded Brazil on Friday evening and it wouldn’t have made the front page of any Saturday newspaper. The attention of 200 million people was focused on the monstrous injustice of Neymar’s injury.

Great warrior

President Dilma Rousseff sent him an open letter, hailing him as a great warrior who brought joy to the people’s souls, and pronouncing herself his number one fan. Companies took out full-page ads with such slogans as, “Força, moleque” (something like ‘Come on, kid’). By the tone of the media coverage, it seemed as though this was the single worst thing ever to happen in Brazil.

Poor Zúñiga has become an instant national hate figure. Ronaldo called the challenge “evil”. The Colombian released a statement saying that Neymar was one of the best players in the world and he never meant to hurt him. Fifa responded to the Brazilian outrage by opening an investigation into the foul, which had not been penalised in any way by the referee.

Brazil wants justice for ultimate team coins Neymar and Zúñiga is the scapegoat but the real culprit is the man in their own dugout. Maybe Big Phil should have considered the downside of a game plan that hinged on beating up the opposition’s best players. There was always a chance Colombia would take it lying down. Brazil had turned the match into a war. When you go to war, you have to accept that there are going to be casualties.

Barca: Suarez 100% our player now

Luis Suarez was conspicuous by his absence on the day he officially became "100 per cent" a Barcelona player.

The Uruguayan striker arrived in the Catalan city on Tuesday to complete the formalities of his reported €94m (£75m) transfer from Liverpool.

But, due to the fact he is serving a four-month FIFA ban from all football-related activity after biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini's shoulder at the World Cup, he could not be formally unveiled at the Nou Camp on Wednesday morning.

It therefore fell to new Barca coach Luis Enrique and director of football Andoni Zubizarreta to answer questions about the club's latest big-money signing, while expanding further on their wider plans in the summer transfer window.

Suarez will be ineligible to play for Barca - or even to train with his team-mates - unless any appeal lodged with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) is successful.

When asked if Barca were making moves to reduce the length of the ban, Zubizarreta told reporters: "Luis Suarez is a Barcelona player for all purposes but the recommendation from our lawyers has been to remain discreet.

"Our lawyers tell us that we should be very prudent with what we say and your question is asking about something that's could only happen after certain verdicts have been reached.

"Then we'll be able to explain things better.

"But it's fact, it's true. He's 100 per cent a member of the club.

"We're speaking to our lawyers to find out the best way of defending his rights but at the moment there's nothing I can say about that."

Whether or not Suarez is allowed to make his debut ahead of schedule, the fact he is now securely under contract at the Nou Camp gives Enrique one less headache.

The former Spain midfielder, who has coached Barca's B team and more recently Roma and Celta Vigo, has already started shaking up his squad as a result of both planned and unexpected changes to personnel.

Cesc Fabregas and Alexis Sanchez have been sold, goalkeepers Victor Valdes and Jose Manuel Pinto have been released, while Carles Puyol's decision to retire from football leaves Enrique light on options in defence

He has signed Croatian playmaker Ivan Rakitic, Suarez and keepers Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Claudio Bravo but Barca remain frustrated in their search for a "high-profile" centre-back.

"We're working on that at the moment," Zubizarreta added. "We thought we were going to have four centre-backs because we thought Puyol would be with us but he's not and we have to cover that position.

"Obviously we're working on buying players and we're hoping to announce a centre-back soon.

"About 90 per cent of clubs in Europe have the same problem, it's a position everyone is working on.

"We're working in the market and we haven't come to a definitive decision on some players we were hoping to sign.

"The only high-profile centre-back that's been signed is David Luiz, who's moved to Paris St Germain.

"It's not easy to find centre-backs who are better than the ones we've got and if we could find them then we would sign them."
