The Dutch Cup replay between Ajax Amsterdam and AZ Alkmaar on Jan. 19 will be watched by a crowd of children only, Ajax said on Tuesday.

The last-16 match was abandoned on Dec. 21 shortly before halftime after a fan invaded the pitch and attacked Alkmaar keeper Esteban.


Esteban retaliated and was sent off but his red card was rescinded and Ajax were forced to replay the game in an empty stadium.

Ajax last week asked the Dutch football association (KNVB) to allow women and children to attend the match but the ruling body decided that only the latter would be permitted because of a national law of comparable treatment for men and women.

The state prosecutor’s office in Dortmund says Subotic and three others are
under investigation after a 21-year-old woman filed a complaint saying she was
the victim of sexual assault following a private party at the Serbian’s
residence.

Subotic spent part of his youth growing up in Salt Lake City and played for
the U.S. Under-17 and Under-20 teams. But after coach Thomas Rongen left him off
the roster for the 2007 Under-20 World Cup, he switched allegiance to Serbia,
part of the Yugoslav nation when he was born in Banja Luka in 1988.

One of the World Cup’s oldest mysteries finally may be solved after
claims were made this week of a sinister plot involving mass corruption,
government interference and torture.

Argentina’s 1978 triumph against Peru long has been suspected of
involving dirty tricks by the Argentinean political dictatorship led
by Jorge Videla that held power at that time. For more than 30 years
questions have been asked about the controversial 6-0 win that clinched
Argentina’s place in the final, where they beat the Netherlands 3-1.

This week former Peruvian senator Genaro Ledesma said a deal was struck
between Peru’s then-president Francisco Bermudez and Videla, whereby
Argentina would be allowed to win the game by at least the four-goal
margin it needed to avoid elimination.

Former FIFA vice president Jack Warner has been asked to
explain what happened to aid that never arrived in Haiti after being donated
following a 2010 earthquake.

Trinidad and Tobago’s soccer federation said Warner, its former special
adviser, controlled a bank account in its name that was set to receive $750,000
pledged by FIFA and South Korean soccer leader Chung Mong-joon toward soccer
rebuilding projects.

Haitian officials told The Sunday Times in Britain that they have received
only $60,000, and FIFA said it has frozen all funding to Trinidad and Tobago
until it gets answers.

The global soccer players’ union is backing a campaign to
change FIFA’s laws of the game to allow Islamic women to wear hijabs.

Soccer’s rules-making panel outlawed hijabs for safety reasons in 2007, and
will consider lifting the ban at a March 3 meeting in England.

The dispute was highlighted when Iran’s women team forfeited 2012 Olympics
qualifying matches last year.

Napoli's startling 3-1 upset of Chelsea in the Champions League last
Tuesday accomplished three important things. It put a formal timestamp
on the moment everyone realized that Serie A had caught up to the
Premier League.1 It launched a thousand "Andre Villas-Boas DeathWatch" columns, to the point that [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
became a vital resource for soccer journalists. And it cemented
Napoli's status as the coolest club in Europe and the default answer to
the question, "If you're an American looking to get into European
soccer, which team should you support?"

Seriously, if you're a fan in search of a club, how do you not consider Napoli at this point? Not only are the Azzurri
not English — meaning you won't be lumped in with the 40 trillion bros
who picked a Premier League club because that's what everyone else was
doing — and not only are they a fun, overachieving young team, they're
also, and this is putting it mildly, a sky-wide constellation of the
elements that make sports amazing. They're perennial underdogs who come
packaged with a glorious history. They're the agony object of a
furiously loyal and continually heartbroken fan base,2
but within living memory they've also been the trophy-winning home of
the greatest soccer player in the world. They're a team of crazy highs
and pulverizing lows — basically the entire sports-fan experience in its
most extreme and operatic form, all compressed into one club in a
terrifying and fascinating city on a gulf at the foot of a volcano.
Really, you'd rather root for Arsenal?

68, who since 1983 has managed eight different national teams — from
Mexico in 1983 to Iraq in 2009 — insists he is done coaching. Not that
he’s stuck to that same vow in the past. But the so-called miracle
worker of global soccer is enjoying his new job as, well, it’s not
entirely clear. When asked what he does in Qatar, Bora flashes an impish
grin and replies: “I don’t have a role. Only I share my experience.”

That’s
not exactly true. Officially, Bora’s an adviser at Aspire Academy,
whose facilities he has just been flaunting, a sporting institute for
Qatar’s elite young athletes. Unofficially, he’s a jack of all trades
for Qatari sport — consultant, goodwill ambassador, and indefatigable
salesman.

It’s in this last role that Bora thrives. He settled in
Qatar in 2009 to serve as “bid ambassador” for its successful campaign
to host the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
and counts helping the sleepy emirate of 1.7 million people upset a
field of the United States, Australia, Japan and South Korea among his
finest accomplishments. “I’m very happy,” he said, beaming about the
experience. “I joke with the people. They ask me: ‘Bora how you explain
this?’ This is easy: my team always wins.”

quite enough to repair the damage of the 4-0 defeat in the first leg at

"I was not happy with the referee because he gave them
many free-kicks in the centre of the park," the Arsenal manager said.
"Every time a player went down it was a free-kick to them. The [Milan]

have been a misunderstanding," Pereira and other club spokesmen
insisted. "The crowd were chanting Hulk, Hulk, Hulk."

Hard to know
why they would do that in the 78th minute of a game when the Porto
