Fernando Couto,McCarthy says suspension justified
rte.ie – Jun 1, 2001
“It is really a massive undertaking for a small country,” said Portuguese FA President Gilberto Madail in November. Meanwhile, Mr Madail has reacted angrily to claims that the Portuguese FA allowed tickets for tomorrow’s Ireland game to go on the black market. “We are organising Euro 2004 and are very surprised at the position of the Irish association,” he said. He said that he expects an apology from the FAI. Ironically, this row comes in a week when the FAI were proposing to join with Scotland for a joint Euro 2008 bid. He says that the issue seems to have been blown out of all proportion. “(The FAI) started to talk about 3000 (black market tickets) then it became 1500… “(The FAI) started to talk about 3000 (black market tickets) then it became 1500. Now it seems that there are 200. We have no interest in selling tickets to people who are not Portuguese on the black market. We are respectable,” he added. Mr Madail has also reacted angrily to Ian Harte’s accusations that Luis Figo is a “diver,” although he admits that his comments may have lost something in translation. He said that it is not necessary for professional footballers to behave like this. Although Portugal are set to appeal against the international suspension of Fernando Couto, FIFA have indicated that it is unlikely to be removed before Saturday’s World Cup qualifier.

England to pay for past struggles
Telegraph.co.uk – Apr 10, 2001
Favourites to be the first seeds for Euro 2004 are Sweden, Spain, Czech Republic, Belgium, Germany, Romania, Ireland, Italy and either France or Turkey. As world champions France have no 2002 World Cup qualifying ties their coefficient from qualifying for Euro 2000, which they went on to win, will probably stand. A Turkey victory over Moldova on Sunday may see France – the holders do not qualify automatically – alongside England as a second seed for Euro 2004.

Marco Materazzi
cbc.ca – Apr 25, 2001
Zinedine’s head-butt cost France its best scorer as the countries headed into a penalty shootout to decide the match. With Zizou back in the locker-room, Italy claimed its fourth World Cup title with a 5-3 shootout win over France. So what exactly did Materazzi, a talented defender who is also considered the bad boy of Italian soccer, say to set off Zidane? Nobody knows for sure but it should not come as a surprise to anyone who has followed Materazzi’s career that the Italian is at the centre of this controversy. Tall and lanky, bulging with biceps and covered in tattoos, the wide-eyed Italian looks the part of a thug. Materazzi plays in Serie A (the Italian first division) with Inter Milan and is renowned for his physical and aggressive style, his tough tackling skills and for getting his opponents’ blood boiling with his intimidating and often dirty play… Although respected by teammates for his commitment on the field, opposing players have complained of Materazzi’s shady tactics – kicking at players’ heels, pinching and stamping are part of the Italian defender’s arsenal of tricks in marking opponents. In 2004, he was suspended for two months after punching Siena’s Bruno Cirillo in a post-match tussle between the two teams. Used primarily as a substitute by Italy at the 2002 World Cup and Euro 2004, Materazzi stood in for the injured Alessandro Nesta in Germany and played a major role in helping the Azzurri win their fourth World Cup. In the do-or-die first-round match against the Czech Republic, Materazzi scored on a bullet header a mere nine minutes after replacing Nesta to pace the Italians to a 2-0 triumph. Materazzi was red-carded in Italy’s second-round match against Australia but redeemed himself with a polished defensive performance in Italy’s semifinal victory against Germany. In the final against France, Materazzi scored the tying goal in the first half and then recovered from the Zidane head-butt to score one of Italy’s goals in the shootout, underscoring his value as one of the best attacking defenders in world soccer.
