APIA All White pushing for A-League shot

APIA All White pushing for A-League shot

He came out of nowhere to be named in Ricki Herbert’s All Whites 2010 World Cup squad and despite not getting on the pitch Aaron Clapham could have been mistaken that his career was about to take off.

Three years on the 26-year-old Kiwi is still working tirelessly to get his big break and achieve his dream of playing in the Hyundai A-League.

Having played for Canterbury United in New Zealand’s top division he decided to think outside of the long white cloud and made the trip across the ditch to play for the APIA Leichardt Tigers in the NSW National Premier League.

“I realised that after returning from holiday that there was still a lot of time before the season started back up again so I spoke to NZ Football and they advised me to look at an NPL club,” said Clapham.

“The opportunity came up with APIA so I thought it would be a great opportunity to put myself in the shop window for A-League clubs.”

“It has been an up and down year for APIA who claimed the Waratah Cup title after knocking off league high fliers Sutherland Sharks 3-0 in the final but have had a torrid time in the league.

“It has been great having the opportunity to play with APIA.

“While our league results have not been the best, which is frustrating, we went on a great cup run.

“When I’m older and look back on what I have achieved in football, the trophies are always going to be something you will remember.”

Those frustrating league results see APIA sit bottom of the NSW National Premier League table, something that Clapham and his teammates are looking to rectify.

“We don’t want to be like Wigan (2012 FA Cup winners) and win the cup and then get relegated in the same season.

“The side is now putting all our focus into getting some positive results and doing everything we possibly can to avoid relegation.

“The cup victory gives us the confidence that we can achieve this.”

Once the relegation battle is out of the way, Clapham is hoping he has done enough to secure a spot on an A-League roster and break into the All Whites side once again.

“I want to get into the A-League and obviously have the opportunity to play for my country once more.

“We have the World Cup qualifier coming up against the fourth place team from North America so that will be massive.

“It would be great to add to my ten caps I have had with the national side and have the chance go to another World Cup.”

With Ernie Merrick arriving at the Phoenix, Clapham has renewed hope that he might find a home in Wellington.

“New coaches have different preferences in terms of players to one another.

“I know I have to play good football to put myself in the frame to be picked up by an A-League club.”

Clapham and APIA Leichardt now have two rounds to jump off the bottom of the table with their latest result, a close 1-0 loss to finals bound Rockdale City Suns, giving them some belief.

They sit two points behind this weeks combatants the South Coast Wolves in what is likely to determine who remains in the top flight of NSW football.

The match takes place on Saturday August 10 at APIA’s Lambert Park with kick-off at 7pm.

“This my first opportunity to work with this group girls as the head coach,” said Wilson.

“There are a couple of new faces in the group in comparison to the squad that played against Korea recently.

“We will be looking to improve on what we have been working in training and applying that to international football,” concluded Wilson.

Socceroos to face Brazil

Football Federation Australia and the Confederação Brasileira de Futebol (CBF) today announced that the Socceroos will meet the Brazilian Men’s National Football team, “The Seleção”, in an international friendly match at the Estadio Nacional Mané Garrincha Stadium, in Brasilia, Brazil on Saturday 7 September 2013 (kick-off 4:15pm local; Sunday 8 September 5:15am AEST).

This will be the seventh match between Brazil and Australia at senior men’s international level after the teams last met at the Allianz Arena in the group phase of the 2006 FIFA World Cup where Brazil were 2-0 winners.

Socceroos Head Coach Holger Osieck is looking forward to the match as the countdown to the 2014 FIFA World Cup continues.

“With less than twelve months to go to the World Cup this match is a great opportunity for us to get an impression of the environment we will face,” said Osieck.

“Brazil is one of the top teams in the world and a great challenge for us as we prepare ourselves for the World Cup.

“This match will be a valuable learning experience for us both on and off the field,” concluded Osieck.

The Socceroos are currently ranked 40th in the FIFA World Rankings whilst the Brazilians are currently 9th (as of 4 July 2013).

The match between the Socceroos and Brazil will be broadcast live and exclusive on Fox Sports.

Sábado Total deixará de ser exibido ao vivo



O “Sábado Total”, do Gilberto Barros, deixará de ser ao vivo a partir da outra semana.

O programa, inclusive, já tem estúdio reservado para gravações, às quartas-feiras.

Era o único que ainda entrava ao vivo na Rede TV!, com exceção do esporte e jornalismo.

Então é isso. Mas amanhã tem mais. Tchau!

Juliano Cazarré poderá ser dispensado da nov



Pode ser que ainda exista uma reviravolta no caso, mas diminuiu bem a importância do Ninho, personagem do Juliano Cazarré em “Amor à Vida”…

… Agora, a história do sequestro da filha, Klara Castanho, pode servir como suspiro.
