The Clubs recommended the following be reconsidered by the AIFF's Executive/Emergency Committee:

a. The Clubs requested that the number of Foreign Recruits in 2nd Division League be increased to two (from one) to bring it in line with the State Leagues.

b. The Clubs pleaded an year's extension to the decision of having a Marqee Player in their Teams by I-League 2015-16 onwards.

26.06.2013 : KFC. | www.kolkatafootball.com HOME PAGE

SUBHRANSU ROY : 26.06.2013: Tomorrow morrnning (12.30 AM as Indian time) in the first semi-final of Confederation Cup 2013, host Brazil will face Uruguay. This match reminds us a very specific match between same two team just 63 years ago. The very match is known as one of the biggest upsets in football ever. It was a decider match of 1950 World Cup and match was called Maracanazo. What is Marcanazo?

The term "Maracanazo", which is used when an underdog beats the Brazil National Team, or one of the four big teams from Rio de Janeiro (Flamengo, Vaso da Gama, Fluminense or Botafogo), in the Maracana stadium. Brazil was shocked after the defeat against Uruguay. The Football Association of Brazil immediately changed their colors, because the plain white outfit was cursed according to them ( Brazil's home shirt was white with a blue neckline along with white shorts). The new outfit became the yellow jersey, blue short and white socks that we know today and watch in the television or Pic .


After a long gap of 12 years due to World WarII the World Cup one again commenced its journey in1950, Brazil under guide line of The sixteen countries expected for the World Cup, but only thirteen turned up. Brazil insisted on a format that had never been used before and was never used subsequently.

There would be no knockout stage. Instead, the winners of each of the four first-round groups would form a final group of four teams. Each country would play every other in the group with the title going to the country that came first. The last match in the group between host Brazil and Uruguay was a decider as group two top teams faced each other in that match. With Brazil one point ahead of Uruguay going into the match, Uruguay needed a win while Brazil needed only to avoid defeat to claim the title of world champions.

Brazil beating Sweden 7-1 and Spain 6-1 to go top of the group with four points going into the final match. The match was scheduled to be held on 16 July, 1950 at Maracana stadium, Rio.

The team of Brazil for the final The Brazilian newspaper O Mundo printed an early edition on the day of the final containing a photograph of Brazil with the caption "These are the world champions". Uruguay's captain, Obdulio Varela, bought as many copies as he could, laid them on his bathroom floor and encouraged his teammates to urinate on them.

TILL TODAY BRAZIL MET ARCH RIVAL URUGUAY 72 TIMES IN THE INTERNATIONAL ARENA WHERE BRAZIL WON 33 TIMES, URUGUAY WON 20 TIMES, REST 19 GAMES DREW, BRAZIL SCORED 127 GOALS WHILE URUGUAY SCORED 93.
