Marcel De Jong scored Helmond Sport third goal in a 3-1 win over FC Omniworld.

According to Livescore, de Jong actually scored the second and third goals for Helmond. First 2-goal game for him that I can remember.

Guest Jeffery S.

Not a good day for Julian as he was pulled at the half for Sergio as Depor tried to get back against Zaragoza, eventually doing so on a great goal by Munitis when a man down. for the 1-1. Julian was said to be ineffective, the radio was not too favourable about his performance.

Depor has great probs winning at home, where they are expected to carry the game to the opponent. Without Valeron, injured, they simply do not have anyone able to make the transition forward, and the only talented guys are out on the wings (like Munitis), often lost in chasing their respective defensive backs. The striker are interesting but young, and the defense solid but a bit rough around the edges (Coloccini with his second straight red for agression in a month).

Still think Julian's chances would be better more in an attacking role for Depor, as he has proven to play better going that way. So how about Canada taking a cue and lining up with Occean/De Ro in the middle, Julian on the right, Radz or De Rosario on the left, Hume in the hole behind them. That I think could be a damn good option in a "defensive" 4-3-3.

MADRID, Feb 15 (Reuters) - Deportivo Coruna's Julian De Guzman was surprised and upset to be racially abused by Real Betis supporters at Sunday's Primera Liga match and has called for such incidents to be eradicated from the game.

The former Hannover 96 midfielder, who plays for Canada, was targeted by a section of Betis fans who directed racial abuse, chants and monkey noises at him while he was warming up and during the game at the Ruiz de Lopera stadium in Seville.

Referee Alfonso Pino Zamorano did not mention the incidents in his match report.

"I'm totally opposed to these sorts of chants and noises," De Guzman told Marca's website on Wednesday.

"I know that they occur in some places but they have to be stopped now. We live in a racially mixed world and there is no room for such behaviour in football.

"I'm saddened by it but it's over now. It's the first time that it has happened to me in Spain ... It happened to me once in Germany but it wasn't so loud.

"Football brings nationalities together and I was brought up with that, that's why I don't understand it."

Spanish football has witnessed an increase in abuse directed against black players during matches in recent seasons.

Real Zaragoza were fined 600 euros ($714.4) by the Spanish Football Federation this month after their fans directed racial insults at Betis's Brazilian forward Robert.

Racist taunts

Julian de Guzman, a mainstay of Canada's national soccer team, was the target of racist taunts against black players by Spanish fans. De Guzman, 24, a midfielder on the Spanish first division club Deportivo La Coruna, was the object of the abuse from Real Betis fans when his team visited Manuel Ruiz de Lopera Stadium in Seville last Sunday. The fans directed chants and monkey noises at him while he was warming up and during the game.

“I know these incidents occur in some placesm but they have to be stopped now,” de Guzman, of Toronto, said in a statement. “We live in a racially mixed world and there is no room for such behaviour in football. I'm saddened by it, but it's over now. It's the first time that has happened to me in Spain, it happened to me in Germany, but it wasn't so loud.”

De Guzman's mother was born in Jamaica and his father in the Philippines. He is the first Canadian to play in Spain's elite league after he transferred from the German Bundesliga club Hanover 96 in June.

De Guzman's brother Jonathan, 18, plays for Feyenoord Rotterdam in the Dutch soccer league.

Julian de Guzman is enjoying the best season of his career. He scored the winning goal in a 3-1 win over Real Madrid on Oct. 26. In a 3-3 tie this season against Barcelona, he was given the task of marking world player of the year Ronaldinho.

De Guzman's father, Julian Sr., said yesterday he was shocked by the accounts from Seville, but told his son to keep his composure.

“Don't lower yourself, I told him, if you react to them, then they got you,” de Guzman Sr. told his son in a telephone conversation yesterday. “Let the officials monitor these things and don't ever retaliate.”

The taunts increased when de Guzman tackled Real Betis captain Juanito during the second half of the match, which Deportivo won 1-0.

“The actions of those fans are unacceptable,” de Guzman Sr. told The Globe and Mail. “The more people who are aware of it, hopefully these small number of idiots will be scrutinized for their actions. I know [the Union Européenne de Football Asssociation] is trying to nip these incidents in the bud and punish any fans, coaches or players who make comments like this.”
