Inside: First cap for new signing José Sosa

José Ernesto Sosa will arrive at Bayern in the summer as a full Argentine international. The attacking midfielder, set to take up a four-year contract with Germany’s leading club on 1 July, earned a first senior cap for the two-time World Cup winners last Wednesday as a <i>Gauchos</i> line-up exclusively featuring South American based players drew 0-0 with Chile.

<b>Urawa knocked off top spot</b>
Bayern’s Japanese partner club Urawa Red Diamonds climbed to the top of the J-League last weekend, but the Reds under German coach Holger Osieck suffered a first defeat of the season on Saturday in a 2-1 reverse at home to Kawasaki Frontale, and were promptly knocked off their lofty perch by Nagoya Grampus Eight. Kawasaki struck twice in the ten minutes after the restart, and although Satoshi Horinouchi pulled one back on 64 minutes, Urawa were unable to make good the deficit.

<b>U-21 call-ups for Hummels and Fürstner</b>
Bayern juniors Mats Hummels and Stephan Fürstner have been called into the Germany combined U-20/U-21 squad for next Wednesday’s meeting with Switzerland in Aalen, rounding off this year’s traditional four-nation tournament. Germany coach Dieter Eilts has named ten Bundesliga professionals in his 18-strong squad, who lead the tournament with ten points and a goal difference of +6 ahead of Italy (ten points, goal difference +2), Austria (six points, goal difference -6) and the Swiss.

<b>Rummenigge’s revenge best served cold</b>
Germany’s defeat to Italy in the 1982 World Cup final rates as one of the greatest disappointments of Karl-Heinz Rummenigge’s illustrious playing career, but the Bayern chairman will finally be offered a chance of revenge on 27 July this summer at the Daimler stadium in Stuttgart where the sides meet again, 25 years on from the global showdown in Spain. The match has been organised by former Germany international Hansi Müller, who celebrates his 50th birthday on the day of the game. The Stuttgart-born former pro has received promises to appear from all the players from both sides, apart from Italy keeper Dino Zoff (vacation) and Pierre Littbarski (coaching in Japan).
