Several surprisesThe South American’s squad for the 12 February friendly against Italy in Genoa contains several surprises. The main absentees are FC Porto goalkeeper Vítor Baía and winger Nuno Capucho, Sporting Clube de Portugal playmaker João Pinto and SL Benfica striker Nuno Gomes – all of whom were a part of Portugal’s unsuccessful side at last summer’s World Cup finals. Goalkeeping positionVítor Baía has never missed out on selection for the squad when fit since he was 19, but Scolari was quick to point out that the custodian was not entirely out of his plans. “My criteria are to call the players I think are in the best form and those who can give what I need until EURO 2004™,” he said. “For this game, the two goalkeepers I have chosen are the best and that is why I have picked them but this does not mean that I won’t call any of the absent players any more. ”
Trio handed first callsThere are also first call-ups for Benfica and Under-21 international Miguel, UD Leiria attacking midfield player Silas and Porto and U21 forward Hélder Postiga. “I have been watching some players more regularly but I preferred to watch those players who do not have that high a profile – the younger ones,” explained Scolari.

Savicevic cautiousSavicevic was cautiously optimistic ahead of his side’s home game with Azerbaijan, which will be played in Podgorica. “We are favourites, that is true.

Large squad Ibrahim, Besiktas’s matchwinner in the recent derby victory over Istanbul rivals Galatasaray SK, is one of 30 players drafted in by Günes, whose plans for the England game were hampered by the decision to cancel a training camp in Dubai last month.

Beckham left out of England squad
Ninemsn – Feb 7, 2003
Beckham, who quit as captain after England’s quarter-final exit from the World Cup in July, did not feature in McClaren’s list of 25 for next Wednesday’s home friendly against Greece. But the 31-year-old Real Madrid player swiftly signalled in a statement to Reuters that his passion to play for England remained “as strong as ever”… There have been some lows, however, most notably his red card against Argentina at France 98 for a kick at Diego Simeone — an act that led to vilification at home. On Thursday, Chelsea defender John Terry was named as Beckham’s successor as captain by McClaren. “He has great hunger and desire to succeed and plays with great passion,” McClaren said of the man he has entrusted to lead the team to the Euro 2008 finals in Austria and Switzerland.

Falkirk hit by double standards
Edinburgh Evening News – Feb 6, 2003
The salary on offer, if true, may offer another 300,000 reasons a year, but there’s no doubt McCall had to judge whether his star would still be rising or on the wane a year hence if he remained with Falkirk.

And if the authorities need a precedent why don’t they ask Dundee United and Dundee just why they thought they could build a stadium to share as part of the bid to land Euro 2008? It’s hard to imagine the Tayside clubs embarked on such a course without a nod and a wink from those in the know. If it was good enough for them, then surely it should be good enough for Falkirk? Stars shine brightly out of the spotlightFOOTBALL players, it increasingly appears, seem to be spending more time on the front pages of our tabloid newspapers rather than their natural habitat of the back page. Whether it be gambling, drinking and driving, altercations with neighbours or the annual high jinks of the Christmas party, today’s stars attract the wrong kind of headlines all too often. However, unknown to most of us many of them spend a great deal of their time out of the glare of publicity, shunning the camera and helping make life that little bit more tolerable for those less fortunate than themselves. It may be unseen, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t appreciated, such as the touching tale from Easter Road where the combined efforts of Hibs and Rangers brightened the life of a 12-year-old boy. – Feb 5, 2003
