World Cup faces big weekend; U.S.A. plays Iran on Sunday By BARRY WILNER AP Sports Writer PARIS (AP) — As the World Cup approached a worrisome weekend, more suspensions were doled out and only one goal waa scored. With the Dutch playing at Marseille on Saturday, the much-hyped U.S.-Iran game Sunday in Lyon. and England's second game, vs. Romania, at Toulouse on Monday, authorities are gearing up for potential trouble, Security will be tight at all three matches, particularly England's after hundreds of English hooligans made trouble a week ago in Marseille. The aftermath of "Red Thursday," when five ejections were made by referees, saw three suspensions handed out Friday. Gone for three games in the stiff- esl penalty of the Cup is South Africa's Alfred Phiri for elbowing Denmark's Thomas Helves in the forehead. Suspended for two games were French star striker Zinedine Zidane and Miklos Molnar of Denmark. Zidane was suspended for "violence against another player" after stepping hard on Saudi captain Fouad Aram's side. Denmark's Morton Wieghorst and Saudi Arabia's Mohammed ai Khilaiwi each received the normal one-game suspension for a red card. But FIFA pulled a red card on itself, saying it failed to reach the right balance in judging on-field fouls and even may have helped create the flood of expulsions. Players and coaches pleaded for consistency after Thursday's calls. So FIFA sent two top officials to the referees' compound Daily Globe Scoreboard outside Paris to try to clew up confusion over what it should take to get a player kicked out of a game or given a warning for roughness. "What needs to be made clearer is the disciplinary action," FIFA spokesman Keith Cooper said Friday. "There ia some room for improvement as to how the actions are punished. The first days, there was too' much leniency. Yesterday, the movement waa in the opposite direction." There were no red cards Friday, when Bora Milutinovic showed he still can weave hia World Cup magic. He coached Mexico -into the quarterfinals (1986), Costa Rica (1990) and the United State* (1994) into the second round, and now he's led Nigeria to .the top of Group D. The Nigerians joined France and Brazil in the second round by edging Bulgaria 1-0. In the other game Friday, Paraguay tied Spain 0-0, damaging the Spaniards' chance* of advancing, even though they were favored in Group D. U.S. players seem to be enjoying the buildup to Sunday's politically spiced game with Iran. A . Iocs would eliminate either team. "We realize both government* are looking at this game and would like to get one over on each other," goalkeeper Kasey Keller said, "If it brings a couple more million people in front of their televisions, that's OK." World Cup organizers went after officials from two companies in the wake of bogus sales and the reported theft of tickets. Distributor Prime Sports Intema- 'tional, which claimed it had 15,000 tickets and hundreds of thousands of dollars stolen in a burglary on Wednesday, has not identified who bought the tickets, the games they were to attend Gofebic Ranff» Hors«shoe League JUM 16 SeorM — Aurora 11 13.

Organizer* also filed a complaint with prosecutors against ISL France, a subsidiary of FIFA'« marketing company, ISL Worldwide. It was the first step toward seeking damages in a ticket fraud case involving a con- sultant to the subsidiary.

Well, sometimes things don't work out the way they're planned. In Matron's case, however, they worked out for the better. The 6-0 blond directs an offense, but it's on the basketball court as MTTTi point guard, Mattaon'f route from football field to basketball court workfnJ out well, but it wan a good three years in the making. "I was redshirted in football in my freshman year. However, the next year there was another young player the coaches were high on and he was their choice to be the future starter," r said Mattson. "I felt there wasn't much hope for me starting, so I dropped football and concentrated on basketball. It was the best dcci»ion." Although he really didn't have any hope of starting at guard his junior year, things worked out. They had a three-year starter at the point returning, but they moved him to off guard and put me 'at the point," he said. "I started there every game this past year, with the exception of Senior NiKht." For a natural point guard, one who directa the offense nnd distributes the ball, MatUon's stats were solid. He averaged five points and four assists per game on a team that won 21 games nnd tied for first with Northwood Institute (Midland) in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. "We had « good year and won the right to host the GLIAC tourney, whore we finished second. We bent Lewis College of Jolitt, 111., in overtime nt the Midwest Regional nt Owen.nboro, Ky., before falling to Kentucky Wcsloy- an, which was runner-up nationally." According U) Matt.son, MTU welcomes three starter* back, including two-thirds of a front line that went 6-9, 6-6 and 6-5 this year. "Most feel wt; 'and Northern Michigan should bo the favorites in the GLIAC next yuan," said Matt.son. "NMU das everybody back next year. "We've had a KTIUM rivriiry with them and it should really be something next year," Mattson added. "We beat them two of three thi.s past year, losing a close one at their place, beating them pretty good at our place during the regular season and then defeating them in a good game in the tournament." MnttKon, a six-footer nnd solid at 180 pounds, is working this summer at Rockfonl, III., m his field, mechanical onginiM-rinH. And while fit Kockford, hf's keeping up with his specialty. "I've joined the Y here ant! I'm playing n lot of basketball. A couple of players hero are from tlie Lewis College team we .defeated' in the tourney." There are not tlu; uncertainties going into bin senior year that he faced in other years. "1 should be the starter at point guard this year and Tin lixiking forward to my senior year," he said.
