was at it again soon after.

In the next World Cup bidding process, a vastly different set of FIFA rules should be in place. Authentic Brett Pesce Jersey .It had to be that way after the fallout from the 2018 and 2022 bidding contests, which were finally resolved Friday.At a meeting in Marrakesh, Morocco, FIFA President Sepp Blatter closed Michael Garcias investigation of World Cup hosts Russia and Qatar, and also looked ahead to the next bidding contest — and fresh rules of engagement.I am focused on the future, said Blatter, and pointed to a list of proposals that world footballs governing body is considering for the 2026 bids.Blatter said FIFA wants to make sure everyone can be confident that the 2026 bidding process will be fair, ethical and open.This might be Garcias long-term legacy at FIFA. Its his recommendations that have now been endorsed by German law professor Martin Nolte, who was consulted by FIFA.Heres a look at how future votes are expected to be handled:___NO COLLUSION: Never again will FIFA choose two World Cup hosts together, which some say invites vote trading pacts. These were widely alleged in the 2018-2022 contests, but not proven.FIFA has also taken the ultimate voting decision away from the much-discredited executive committee. In the future, the ruling board will propose up to three candidates for a vote by FIFA member federations. There are currently 209.However, Garcia also recommended that board members be barred from visiting bid nations, or being visited by bid officials.Garcia also wants bid nations barred from voting, as happens in Olympics Games and UEFA European Championship hosting contests.___TIGHTER RULES: The FIFA code of ethics, and bid conduct rules specific to the 2018-2022 campaigns, seemed to leave gaping loopholes.That should now change.According to FIFA, Nolte advised that reporting requirements for gifts, procedures for friendly matches and the role of consultants need to be tightened.Payments linked to a friendly match hosted by Qatar between Brazil and Argentina were flagged by Garcias report but not judged to have influenced the hosting outcome.Other bidders were also prepared to send national teams to play matches in voters countries.Garcia has opened proceedings against then-FIFA voter Franz Beckenbauer, the German great whose business associates were employed as consultants by Australias 2022 bid.___PROJECTS CURBEDNo World Cup bid has seemed complete without a budget to spend on projects across the football world, in the name of leaving a legacy.That should stop, according to Nolte.The promotion of football development projects by bid teams outside of the country or member association concerned should no longer be permitted, FIFA said Friday.___BUDGET AUDITOne idea seared into the 2018-2022 saga is that Qatar bought the World Cup.The phrase was written by FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke in a May 2011 email to now-disgraced former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner.Valcke later explained it meant Qatars very important budget and (to) have used it to heavily promote their bid.Exactly how much Qatar spent is unclear as the bid was not obliged to open its books.In the future, bid teams should be subject to a strict legal obligation to allow an audit upon completion of the application and award procedure and to send the corresponding report to FIFA, the legal advice stated.___SAVE. DONT DELETERussias winning 2018 bid denied Garcias investigation team key evidence by simply not having it. The Russians said they used computers that were leased and then destroyed, and email accounts were not retrieved.The bid teams should be subject to a strict legal obligation to store all documents relating to their activities and to keep them available for FIFA for a specified period, FIFA said Friday.Garcia has suggested all documents should be stored at least five years. Authentic Rod Brind’Amour Jersey Authentic Haydn Fleury Jersey . The Brazilian heads into Saturday afternoons race coming off a close runner-up finish to Ryan Hunter-Reay in the Indianapolis 500.It was a where were you when moment. A day when Brazilian football crumbled. A day when they were embarrassed on the largest stage of all, in front of 200 million of their closest friends. The writing was on the wall very early. It was a ridiculously open game from kick off. In the 4th minute, Miroslav Klose picked up the ball and Thomas Muller was all alone on the right side. Klose didnt make the pass and the Bayern man was fuming. Two more chances followed, both via Muller open on the right, but Germany were still better even at 0-0. Then it came. Fittingly, from a set piece. It will be forgotten about by many – four goals scored in six minutes will do that to you – but when Muller volleyed home a Toni Kroos corner it changed the mindset of both teams. Here was this Germany team, ready to finally get over a significant hurdle, not wanting to wait a long time to insert their dominance. On the other side stood a Brazilian team high on energy, but clearly fragile. A team, and a nation, that had drowned themselves in self pity for four days. Fifteen minutes before Muller opened the scoring, the host nation had sung their heart out for the national anthem holding up the jersey of Neymar as if he was inside an intensive care unit. Germany, the kings of mental toughness, will have seen that as a weakness even before a ball was kicked. In the buildup to the match, observers had wondered if Brazil had crossed the narrow line between a rallying, motivational tool and having a complete, utter obsession with it. When Germany opened the scoring, we got our answer. Following the winning goal against France, via Mats Hummels from a Toni Kroos corner, Joachim Low spoke about how he had learned to rely more on set play moves. Bastian Schweinsteiger had spoke about Bayern Munichs Pep Guardiolas obsession with them. Germany, after all, should know more than most about them. 2010 World Cup semifinal, Durban, South Africa as told by Xavi: "At half-time, Puyol said we had taken three or four corners already and said if you put it near the penalty spot, then we could cause problems." In the 73rd minute at Durban that day, Xavi produced another stunning assist in a major game, and Puyol did exactly what he said. 1-0 Spain. Another victory won by their brilliance on and off the pitch. 2012 Champions League final, Munich. Bayern Munich leading 1-0 against Chelsea. Then Didier Drogba scores on Chelseas first corner of the entire game before winning on penalties. The image of Schweinsteiger shaking on the penalty spot less than an hour later was a very disturbing image for German football. It was an image of a loser. Germany knew Schweinsteiger, and the rest of the golden generation the last decade has produced, were better than that. A year later at Wembley, many of thee core group of Lows team became winners; winners that arrived in Brazil knowing they had to put it together on the national stage. Authentic Teuvo Teravainen Jersey. A game against hosts Brazil in the World Cup, with or without their best players, certainly wouldnt have overawed this group. The dominance started from the delivery of Kroos. David Luiz lost Muller and the Bayern man knew exactly where his teammate would put the corner. Brazil were behind. It was a scenario that would seriously test a team playing with heavy hearts for their striker, who will likely be playing for Barcelona in two months. David Luiz was at it again soon after. And so was Kroos. Fernandinho guessed incorrectly on a run to get the ball, Kroos found Muller whose brilliant move with Miroslav Klose left Luiz standing still. Incredibly, he stood and watched his marker make it 2-0 and break Ronaldos record. What happened next was absolutely disgraceful for the hosts. Yes, Germany were ruthless, inspired by the magnificent duo of Kroos and Sami Khedira, but Brazils display was pathetic. Three goals in 179 seconds stunned the world. 4-0. Then 5-0 after less than 30 minutes. Brazil were done. They are forced to play another match at this World Cup but they will be best served to start as many players as they can who didnt suffer this footballing massacre. In truth, it will be hard for their professional careers to ever get over this. In the end, the game showed us what frauds they were at this tournament. Average against Croatia, they needed a terrible refereeing decision to get them a victory on the tournaments first day. Against Mexico, they were not much better and the moment Cameroon raised concerns over Dani Alves, Marcelo and David Luiz (three-quarters of the back four!), it was clear they needed to be much better to win the World Cup. Chile and Colombia ran them close but they never came up across a team that had as much quality and big game experience as this German team. It is one thing to be beaten by a much stronger, talented team, it is quite another to crumble and play with pity. Throughout the demolition, Brazil never once showed an emotion as strong as they did while holding up Neymars shirt. Not even in anger. As for Germany, it is a victory that will make them all-time greats, providing they complete the job on Sunday. We have been waiting for true greatness to step up at this World Cup. The Brazilian collapse will hit the headlines today but if Germany lifts the trop
