UEFA Cup Final 2005

Sporting Lisbon - CSKA Moskva: 1 - 3

Sporting Clube de Portugal continued the unfortunate trend set by
the Portuguese national team at UEFA EURO 2004™ as they were
defeated at home in a major showpiece after being given a cruel
lesson in finishing by PFC CSKA Moskva in the UEFA Cup final.

Second-half turnaround
Sporting took a deserved lead when Rogério's wonderful effort sent
the home fans into ecstasy in a one-sided first half but were then
made to pay for some poor finishing as CSKA ran riot in the second
period with goals from Aleksei Berezoutski, Yuri Zhirkov and Vágner
Love.

Positive thinking
Sporting coach José Peseiro was characteristically positive in his
selection, drafting fit-again Joseph Enakarhire into defence at the
expense of Anderson Polga in an orthodox 4-4-2 formation, recalling
captain Pedro Barbosa down the left and pairing top scorer Liedson
with Sá Pinto in attack. CSKA coach Valeriy Gazzaev also showed
attacking intent, with Daniel Carvalho deployed just behind strikers
Ivica Olic and Vágner Love in a 4-3-1-2 lineup.

Sporting dominance
But it was the home side who began brighter, setting the tone for a
dominant first half in which the Portuguese team performed with
style and panache. First Rodrigo Tello saw a shot deflected wide and
before ten minutes had elapsed, Fabio Rochemback had already
registered three shots on goal. It was hard to fault Sporting's
swashbuckling style of play; all that was missing was composure in
front of goal. Even the prolific Liedson seemed to have momentarily
misplaced his predatory instincts when he mis-hit a shot.

Yellow card
CSKA somehow weathered the early Sporting storm and, as they found
their feet, were a touch unlucky not to go ahead in the 14th minute.
Pedro Barbosa was booked for a foul on Carvalho down the right and,
from the resulting free-kick, Aleksei Berezoutski sent a towering
header just over the bar.

Opening goal
All the game needed was a moment of magic and it duly arrived after
29 minutes with a glorious goal, worthy of any final, from the
golden boot of Rogério. With Sporting virtually camped in CSKA's
half, the ball fell invitingly at the winger's feet on the edge of
the area and goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev could only watch as he
thundered a stunning right-foot shot into the top corner of the CSKA
net. It was a goal that Sporting richly deserved.

Glaring miss
CSKA could have nevertheless gone into the break on level terms but
Vágner Love, who was having an unusually quiet evening, somehow
conspired to shoot wide with only Ricardo to beat as he met Olic's
low centre. The second half began as the first had finished with
Sporting probing and CSKA persevering. Liedson was again in the
thick of the action on 47 minutes when he launched himself at Pedro
Barbosa's cross but failed to connect before Rochemback grazed the
bar with a stinging free-kick. It was all going too well for
Sporting.

Berezoutski on target
And so it proved on 56 minutes when CSKA hit them with an almighty
sucker-punch. The Russian side earned a free-kick in a rare foray
into Sporting territory and Aleksei Berezoutski was on hand to nod
Carvalho's pinpoint cross beyond the despairing dive of Ricardo. It
was a cruel blow after Sporting's dominance but, in the few chances
the Russian team had mustered, the hosts' marking was almost non-
existent.

Zhirkov composure
If CSKA's first goal was hard to digest, their second was a killer.
With Sporting attempting to restore their lead, Carvalho broke
forward and held off Enakarhire's challenge to thread an exquisite
ball through to Zhirkov and the winger slipped the ball under the
body of Ricardo to give CSKA the advantage.

Clinching third
With Sporting reeling, the third and final chapter in the Russian's
finishing masterclass effectively ended any chance of a Sporting
recovery. Carvalho escaped down the left and picked out Vágner Love
with a perfectly weighted centre and this time the Brazilian made no
mistake. The goal capped a night of broken dreams in Lisbon, for all
but the 2,000 travelling CSKA fans.

Congratulations to CSKA for being the first Russian team winning a
European Cup, by beating Sporting at their home stadium!.. :)

Sporting have paid the price of playing too relaxed (or low-
concentrated) against a tough team like CSKA.

It was a typical Portuguese performance. Once the pressure was on,
they self destructed.

Sleepy burglar arrested

A burglar was arrested in China after he overslept when taking a nap
at the scene of his latest crime.

The 18-year-old had sneaked into a decoration company through an open
window and was about to leave with his haul.

But he looked in a fridge first and found some milk and cakes, and
decided to sit down to eat first, reports the Xinmin Evening Post.

Feeling a little sleepy after his meal, the teenager pushed four
chairs together to take a short nap.

He was still fast asleep, his haul of stolen goods by his side, when
the company's workers arrived In the morning.

Staff called the police and the man was arrested.

************************************************

The world is going straight to hell.
