Unanswered prayers
ESPN – Jun 21, 2002
, room 1412, Pan Pacific HotelGeorge Waud snores. Not that occasional or intermittent kind of snoring that many people, or rather their partners (mine included), suffer from. But a consistent, loud, all night, from the second he falls asleep kind of snoring. I know, I’m awake and have been all night. It has been my turn to take George, Dom having got absolutely no sleep the night before this. We’re passing him between us like an unwanted spaniel… This team, at last we have a team and we know, and the players know, who they are. They can play together now, and build confidence and understanding. I’m going to Portugal for Euro 2004. , the Tokkaido line, 11 stops from YokohamaThe trip back from Kanagawa is a nightmare. No seat, and a car full of the more mean-spirited variety of England fans — harassing Brazilian women and trying to goad their boyfriends and husbands into starting something.

McCarthy salutes his ‘inconsolable’ penalty-takers
Telegraph.co.uk – Jun 17, 2002
We’ve been the best side in all our games. Against Spain, it was as good as any performance we produced, against a side who are potential winners of the tournament. We were equal to them if not better. ” As well as McCarthy’s team performed, however, the reality is that Ireland failed to kill off opponents they had dominated – Cameroon, Germany and Spain. For the Republic to move up to the next level they must be more ruthless, turning draws into victories. In 13 ties at the World Cup finals in 1990, 1994 and 2002, Ireland have won only two – against Italy in ’94 and Saudi Arabia last week. There have been eight draws, including two shoot-outs which are deemed to be draws in FIFA’s records… Three weeks ago before the finals started, had we not got to the last 16 my backside was in the bacon slicer. Everybody would have viewed me differently. “My slate is wiped clean in September and we start again in the Euro 2004 qualifiers. ” Ireland will do so probably without Roy Keane. “That’s a subject I don’t want to discuss,” McCarthy said. “The opportunity was there for him to play in the World Cup but he turned it down. I’ll think about this at another time.

ENGLAND WORLD CUP DREAM OVER

At the end we knocked in balls instead of being patient. “Maybe we were a little tired. We were chasing, chasing and it ended up that I do not think we had one shot on goal. We had some good efforts but they were always blocked. “When Brazil had the ball they were good at keeping it. “We did well in the first half to half-time,” he added. “They scored in the last minute and the start of the second half… It has been nice but it was disappointing today. “Once it was 2-1 we were not strong enough to come back after that. ” Eriksson remained positive in spite of the defeat, believing his players will have learned from the experience and come back a better side for Euro 2004. The Swede said: “I think we learned a lot about many things. There are a lot of young players in the squad and they will get much better. “It’s been very nice, but I am very disappointed today because they went 1-1 in the last minute of the first half and after they went 2-1 they weren’t strong enough to come back from that. ” The Swede preferred to praise Brazil for the way they kept the ball following the sending off of Ronaldinho rather than point the finger at his own team.

England’s World Cup ratings report
BBC News – Jun 22, 2002
Danny Mills

The player labelled a liability before the World Cup kept his temper in check and had a solid tournament. He made one mistake against Sweden that cost a goal, but otherwise did not let England down. Ashley Cole

By his own admission he was not at his best, but played his part in a defence that was, in general, solid. He will have benefited greatly from experiencing the biggest stage of all. Rio Ferdinand

He has arrived as a world-class performer. One of the best defenders in the tournament, who was consistently outstanding. How good will he be in four years’ time? And where will he be next season?

Sol Campbell

Reliable without being spectacular… Will be better for playing in the World Cup and is another one for the future. Joe Cole

Briefest of glimpses as a substitute. Cole will have to wait his turn in Euro 2004 and the World Cup in 2006 to show his true worth. Match-by-match ratings:

To Russia with relish!
Irish Independent – Jun 18, 2002
“I want to go to Portugal firstly in about two weeks’ time on my holidays, actually and then again in two years’ time for the European Championship finals. And I think we’ve a very good chance of getting there,” said McCarthy who formally signed a new two-year contract last Saturday. McCarthy will allow himself a short time to reflect on his squad’s achievement in reaching the last 16 of the World Cup before turning his thoughts to the friendly against Finland in Helsinki in August and the first Euro 2004 qualifier against Russia in Moscow on Saturday, September 7. “It is a very fickle world that I live in and I’ll start again in September with a clean slate, irrespective of what we have achieved here,” he said. “It will be a tough qualifying campaign and we’ll have to play as well as we have done in this tournament to get through. We have played well here whether we’ve reached a new level, I don’t know. But I do know that what we have to do now is qualify for European Championship finals… He’s only 31 and still has much to offer. ” McCarthy’s critics argue that Duff should have been selected on the wing from the start but the manager defended his decision to play the Blackburn ace as a striker. “I look at the team as whole, not from the point of one individual,” he said. “If I think the best way to extract the maximum out of the team is to play Damien up front with Robbie Keane, I’ll do that. “No one can deny Kevin Kilbane his slot on the team for the amount of work he does both going forward and in terms of helping out defensively. “For me to change things around and pick Damien where he would play well, but perhaps the team might not play as well, would be wrong in my view. That’s at the moment but it could change in the future.

McCarthy emerges with his stock on the rise
Telegraph.co.uk – Jun 22, 2002
But he will be aware that after his team’s spirited run through to the final 16 in Japan and Korea, his market value is appreciably higher than ever. He will also be aware that expectations next time will be rather different: for the Europeans, Ireland will be seeded and therefore expected to qualify, unlike in this World Cup. McCarthy has said before that he believes he may be better suited to club management because he thinks he has more to offer on a day-to-day basis. He may also have been soured a little by his experiences this summer, for all Ireland’s success… The whole sorry affair, though, probably worked in Ireland’s favour, because a siege mentality developed among the players. Far from dividing them, as originally feared, the Keane issue seemed to bring them closer together and, as McCarthy was wont to say, in the Manchester United player’s absence: “We’ve got good players. ” Yet despite that, one could not help but feel, during extra time against Spain when Ireland unwittingly held a numerical advantage, their estranged captain would have pressed home that advantage. There remains a faction within the FAI.

BBC News – Jun 18, 2002
Dobie, the club’s top scorer last season as he helped them back into the English Premiership, is reported to want more money after breaking into the international team. New West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace stressed on Tuesday that the player was central to the club’s plans for the coming season. “We’re a buying club, not a selling one, and we need to bring players in, not let them go,” Peace told the official West Bromwich Albion website. Key figure

“I’m only days into my term of office as chairman and there have been other things to resolve over the past few weeks. “But we’re very mindful of the fact Scott has enjoyed a good first season with us, and that he’s just broken into the Scotland team. “As part of our overall review of the way the club operates, we will be looking at individual players’ contracts, where we think it is appropriate, in the run-up to the new season. ”

Dobie signed a four-year deal at the Hawthorns last summer after a ?150,000 move from Carlisle… “As part of our overall review of the way the club operates, we will be looking at individual players’ contracts, where we think it is appropriate, in the run-up to the new season. ”

Dobie signed a four-year deal at the Hawthorns last summer after a ?150,000 move from Carlisle. After impressing on Scotland’s tour of the Far East, the 23-year-old is likely to be a key figure in Berti Vogts’ squad for the Euro 2004 qualifiers.

Mjallby wants to stay on at Celtic
Telegraph.co.uk – Jun 21, 2002
Manager John Lambie has recruited utility man Jamie Buchan, winger Ricky Waddell and striker Billy Brawley. Buchan, 25, left Dundee United last season, Waddell, 21, was formerly at Falkirk and 18-year-old Brawley was one of the 19 players sacked by Motherwell in April. Livingston chairman Dominic Keane believes his side have a good chance of progressing to the first round of the UEFA Cup after being drawn against FC Vaduz – but he insists he will not be taking anything for granted. Livi take part in European competition for the first time in the club’s short history when they travel to Liechtenstein on Aug 15. The West Lothian side will be favourites to progress against a team who come from one of the smallest countries in Europe. Keane said: “I think quite a lot of people will be expecting us to progress past this round but we are not experienced enough to be thinking that. “Aberdeen have been paired with Moldovan unknowns Nistru Otaci in the UEFA Cup qualifying round… Scotland have confirmed that they will play a friendly with Euro 2008 co-bidders Ireland next season. Mick McCarthy’s team will visit Scotland on April 30 with Hampden Park the likely venue, although this is still to be confirmed. The Scots are next in action on Aug 21 against Denmark and have Euro 2004 qualifiers with the Faroe Islands, Iceland (twice) and Lithuania between those two fixtures.

) Four years after that disappointing adventure, here is another World Cup, and another final round. When I saw the teams that would confront Italy in Group E, I immediately remembered that banner in Daejeon stadium. In fact, Italy’s group is not easy at all, and the Azzurri have often shown a dangerous tendency to underestimate opponents during past international competitions. Apart from the United States, whose strength and determination are widely expected, Ghana and Czech Republic deserve some attention. Ghana: Africa’s Black Stars This is Ghana’s first appearance in the final round of the World Cup. Their Serbian coach, Ratomir Dujkovic, has gained a good reputation in Africa. After training Myanmar and Venezuela, he led Rwanda to the final round of Africa’s Cup in 2004… He took charge in 2002, when the national team missed the qualification for the World Cup in Korea. It is said that he is loved and supported by both players and fans. Technically and tactically savvy, he has worked hard to shape up a talented group: we saw proof of this in Portugal at Euro 2004. As for the players, Pavel Nedved (Juventus F. ) is regarded as one of the strongest midfielders playing in Italy. Striker Jan Koller (Borussia Dortmund) and the veteran Karel Poborski (Ceske Budejovice) are also top players.
