Northern Ireland comeback is timely tonic for Taggart
Telegraph.co.uk – Aug 13, 2002
“Most of the players are involved in Saturday’s club fixtures so it’s fingers crossed that they will emerge unscathed. I’m anxious to find a settled team before the start of the European Championship. “This is Northern Ireland’s last build-up match but the Euro 2004 series against Spain, Ukraine, Greece and Armenia is not scheduled to commence until October. McIlroy said: “Sept 9 is therefore a free date for us but we will not arrange any friendlies. Instead I’ll travel to Athens to assess Greece and Spain who are in action that day. It will be an ideal opportunity to see both, particularly Spain who have made quite a few changes following theirelimination from the World Cup. ” Squad detailsN IRELAND (v Cyprus, Aug 21, Windsor Park): Taylor (Fulham), Carroll (Man Utd); Griffin (Dundee Utd), McCartney (Sunderland), Williams (Wimbledon), Murdock (Preston), Taggart (Leicester), Kennedy (Wigan), Duff (Cheltenham); Johnson (Birmingham), Gillespie (Blackburn), Lennon (Celtic), Lomas (West Ham), Mulryne (Norwich), Horlock (Man City); McVeigh (Norwich), Healy (Preston), Elliott (Hull), Feeney (Bournemouth), Quinn (Willem II).

Robinson backs Hughes’ hopefuls
BBC News – Aug 13, 2002
“I can see no reason why they cannot qualify for Euro 2004. They have shown a lot of character over the years – allied to the skill and talent there – and I’ll be putting money on them to go through. The Bulawayo-born player said he will miss the Wales get-togethers, which he has been a part of since his debut in 1995. “There is an excellent down-to-earth atmosphere in the squad. They are a great bunch of lads,” he told BBC Radio Wales’ Midweek Sport programme… “My father passed away suddenly earlier in the year and it made you think about time spent with your own family,” he said. “I have always given 100 per cent to Wales, and I felt I wasn’t able to give that commitment at the start of this campaign. “It was not a decision I took lightly, but Mark respected my decision. He was fantastic, but that did not surprise me because of the person he is. ”

Hughes looks set to have news of his own full-time appointment by the weekend. His agent, Dennis Roach, will meet FAW secretary general David Collins on Friday to finalise negotiations for a new deal, which will need to be ratified by the FAW council next month. He looks set to be offered an extension which would run until the 2006 World Cup finals in Germany.

“That is crucial for the smaller countries and their
financial well-being. Their home matches might be their biggest
games of the year, and the right for them to sell the
broadcasting rights is important for their economy. “We have not had any formal contact from the English FA. we
would always be prepared to discuss matters, but the situation
[over television rights] is unlikely to change. Very important

“Access to matches is very important, and that’s why, for
the finals tournament itself, UEFA [which has direct control
over broadcasting rights] makes a balance between financial
considerations and access to free-to-air television… The worry is that a match will end up on a
pay-per-view channel or something like that. ”

The FA have negotiated a deal with the BBC and Sky
Television which means England’s home matches are available to
terrestrial, free-to-air television. England’s first match of the Euro 2004 qualifying campaign
is away against Slovakia on October 12. Police probe Francis over assault on own player
LONDON (Reuters) — British police are investigating
an allegation of assault made against Crystal Palace manager
Trevor Francis by one of his own players over an incident at an
English first division match at Selhurst Park on Tuesday. “We can confirm an allegation of common assault has been
received in connection with an incident from the Crystal Palace
v Bradford match on Tuesday night, and inquiries are
continuing,” a Metropolitan Police spokesman told Reuters on
Thursday. Francis has admitted hitting his Latvian substitute
goalkeeper Alex Kolinko after Bradford took the lead in the
second half of the match which ended 1-1. “I was very disappointed by their goal and when I turned
round I saw Kolinko laughing so I cuffed him around the ear.

Vogts fury at Faroe venue
BBC News – Aug 13, 2002
Vogts will lead his charges out in the run-down Totfir Stadium, where defender Matt Elliott was dismissed in the Euro 2000 qualifying campaign. Scotland were hoping to open their tournament at the new stadium in Torshaven when they return to the Faroes on 7 September. But the Faroes are adamant the ground will not be ready until April 2003 – when Germany visit – despite next week playing a friendly there against Liechtenstein. "

It is unfair we will have to go by car, bus or ferry to get to our stadium

"

Berti Vogts

Vogts said: “A lot of Scottish fans will go to the Faroes and we have to ask why the Germans will be allowed to play in the new stadium, which is only five minutes from the hotel, when we will have to travel by boat, or maybe swim, to our game in Toftir… Vogts will lead his charges out in the run-down Totfir Stadium, where defender Matt Elliott was dismissed in the Euro 2000 qualifying campaign.

SI.com – Aug 14, 2002
In Italy, Fiorentina — once one of the giants of theEuropean game — collapsed last month and the game’s ruling bodyin Europe, UEFA, has warned that without strict financialcontrols no club is safe. In future, UEFA may bar clubs from European competitions, orremove points if their finances look too shaky. But the need for cash to fund successful league campaignshas not lessened. Manchester City, for example, has spent 17million pounds on just two players this summer. Finding the purchase fee for a player is only half theproblem, however. Analysts say that the wages for top-classplayers can double the cost of a player over the life of hiscontract.

But that’s not to say war isn’t on their minds — all the players are of fighting age and they know that combat could come long before the 2006 World Cup. In interviews with The Associated Press on Tuesday, two Iraqi players and the team’s coach criticized the international sanctions against Iraq, expressed concern about the prospect of war, and offered no criticism of the government of Saddam Hussein.

CNNSI.com – Soccer – Italy: Maldini left out for Slovenia friendly -…
SI.com – Aug 17, 2002
Maldini, the most-capped Italian in history, had spoken of stepping down after the World Cup. But following Italy’s second-round loss to South Korea, coach Giovanni Trapattoni asked Maldini to consider staying at least until the early qualifiers for the 2004 Euro Championship. However, the coach’s list Saturday for the Aug. 21 match in Trieste did not contain Maldini… However, frustration with Trapattoni’s coaching also bubbled to the surface in the wake of the defeat, with many in Italy accusing him of sticking with an outdated and overly defensive style. His latest squad includes a thick roster of star strikers: Inter’s Christian Vieri, Filippo Inzaghi of AC Milan, Alessandro Del Piero of Juve, Vincenzo Montella of Roma and Marco Di Vaio of Parma. Despite the criticism, Trapattoni decided to stay on after the Cup, and said he was looking forward to Euro 2004 in Portugal. That will be Italy’s next big test, with qualifiers beginning Sept. 7 away against Azerbaijan. Italy’s qualifying group includes Azerbaijan, Finland, Wales and Yugoslavia. Lineup: Goalkeepers: Gianluigi Buffon, Juventus; Francesco Toldo, Inter.
