A familiar but dangerous pairing
Telegraph.co.uk – Sep 12, 2005
This is something the nation’s most famous Swede, Sven-Goran Eriksson, ought to contemplate. Certainly, the pairing is a familiar one for Eriksson, who drew his native side in the 2002 World Cup. The opening match featured a 1-1 draw in Saitama, where Sol Campbell’s lead was cancelled out in the second half. Their last encounter was a friendly in Gothenburg last year in which England – despite a fine display by Jermain Defoe – put in a curiously lethargic performance and lost 1-0… To rejoicing in both nations, Anders Svensson’s goal ensured Argentina’s elimination in the group stages. Senegal, however, proved a pitfall in the second round. Euro 2004 provided another memorable moment – the elimination of Italy with a 2-2 draw against Denmark that the Italian manager, Giovanni Trapattoni, suspected (without any evidence) was fixed. What followed proved rather an anti-climax, as Sweden became one of the very few nations to have lost a penalty shoot-out to the Dutch in the second round. The side, managed by Lars Lagerback, had a fairly tough group to overcome – with Croatia, Hungary and Bulgaria. Their campaign was founded on a first-class defence, which conceded just four times in qualifying. A side that is greater than the sum of its parts also won eight of their 10 matches and averaged three goals a game.

WORLD CUP 2006: Eriksson confident red mist will not descend on…
noticias.info – Sep 12, 2005
Beckham has been sent off three times for Real Madrid this season while Rooney contributed to Manchester United’s early exit from the UEFA Champions League when he earned a red card against Villarreal for sarcastically applauding referee Kim Milton Nielsen after being wound up by the Spanish club’s defenders. Eriksson is counting on the importance of the FIFA World Cup to help the pair keep a lid on the emotions they frequently demonstrate on the pitch. “I am not worried about the temperament of Beckham or Rooney,” the Swede claimed. “They will do everything right at the World Cup. “Sometimes Wayne is criticised for his behaviour on the pitch but he has never lost his head in a big game. I don’t believe there is a problem with David Beckham either, it is more to do with the bad run Real Madrid are having. “They have sacked another manager, which shows something is not going right… Then if you look at Rooney, Beckham, Michael Owen, the centre-halves, Ashley Cole and Gary Neville. We have the players who can compete with anyone in the world. I am much more convinced of that now than I was in EURO 2004. ”

Captain fantastic can do little to determine World Cup destiny
The Observer – Sep 11, 2005
If the worst-case scenario were to unfold in Cyprus and a Republic side shorn of the suspended trio of Keane, Andy Reid and Clinton Morrison failed to bring three points home from Nicosia, they could be virtually eliminated before their group finale against Switzerland. Would Keane, and his club manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, see the benefit of giving his 34-year-old legs a workout in a game bereft of genuine meaning?Whether the Republic disengage from the World Cup before or during the finals, soon enough the skipper will be off for good. A post-Keane Republic of Ireland is a more daunting prospect now than it was in the summer of 2002. Despite his acrimonious flight from the Far East, the squad’s performance at the past World Cup was stirring enough to foster optimism… The Swiss lurk in Irish consciousness like a bad omen. The memory of the most recent meeting, in Dublin, is not inspiring: defeat pushed ex-manager Mick McCarthy’s backside on to the ‘bacon slicer’ he feared and proved a setback that was compounded by the run-around in Basle. Switzerland duly beat the Republic to qualification for Euro 2004. If they miss out on successive tournaments, Ireland will lose their second seeding for qualification groups (and this group is taxing enough even as second seeds). They will also lose one figurehead – Keane – and maybe Kerr, too. Having spent the past few years flitting just outside of the top 10 of the world rankings, it will take something special to keep them there for now. Four big wins are required, against Cyprus, Switzerland and in a two-leg play-off.

While leading the Dutch national team, Advocaat achieved impressive results, guiding Holland to the quarter-finals at the U. World Cup in 1994 and getting to the semi-finals in the Euro 2004. Not everyone is happy about the appointment. Not only are Verbeek and Advocaat coming to Korea just one month after they started coaching the UAE team, but with a friendly against the Republic of Benin just around the corner on Sept. 23, many say there is little time for the new coach to get things running here.

Stoichkov’s behaviour sparks controversy at Sweden match
Sofia Echo – Sep 12, 2005
Insulted by the allegations, Johansson decided to report Stoichkov?s behaviour to UEFA?s disciplinary committee. Whatever the outcome will be from that report, it is safe to say that the visit to Stockholm will not be a pleasant memory for Stoichkov. Not only have Bulgaria?s hopes of a place in the play-offs in Germany virtually evaporated with the defeat, but the Bulgarians did not get their long wished-for revenge for the defeat in the Euro 2004 finals or for the 0-3 defeat in Sofia in March.

WORLD CUP 2006: Group D: Lavolpe puts faith in mental preparation

news – WORLD CUP 2006: Group D: Lavolpe puts faith in mental preparation. Bearing in mind what could have happened, our group is not that bad. We’ll take it step by step and try to pick up as many points as we can. Bearing in mind what could have happened, our group is not that bad. We’ll take it step by step and try to pick up as many points as we can… You have to be very careful. There’s always a dark horse that comes through and it could be our turn to face them. Nobody gave Turkey much hope in 2002, let alone Greece in Euro 2004 and they went on to win it. I’m going to get the players together for two whole months, and we’ll be speaking non-stop to the players to get them right mentally. The squad’s coming along nicely and I’ve already got 90% of the starting line-up sorted out. They know me and they’re very motivated, but they can’t afford to be complacent. Branko Ivankovic (IRN coach)Before the draw, I didn?t have a particular choice of who we would play as no sides are easy.

Passionless Eriksson must show England he gives a damn
Sunday Times – The Sunday Times – Sep 11, 2005
Eriksson achieved the remarkable feat at Windsor Park of fielding an England team that seemed not to care very much. English players have never been casual about qualifying matches. Well, not until Wednesday evening. Several things are obvious. Eriksson did not do his homework. Certainly not on his opposite number, Lawrie Sanchez, a man who has spent his life punching above his weight. Sanchez has always been most dangerous when the odds have been stacked against him; hardness and intelligence are as much a part of Sanchez as the rimless spectacles are of Eriksson… He made David Beckham captain because he figured that was what the public wanted, a populist decision on a par with Pontius Pilate offering Barabbas to the rabble. You start from the wrong point and the journey is certain to be difficult. It is all now part of a grim history; the tame capitulation against 10-man Brazil in the Shizuoka quarter-final three years ago, the attempts to run off to Manchester United and later Chelsea, the enhanced contract, the disappointing exit from Euro 2004, the Belfast humiliation. Betrayal, mediocrity and £4m a year. Have England improved? No. Is there now more spirit? More tactical coherence? Has he found an inspirational leader, even a good one? No, no and no. It is accepted that in Rio Ferdinand, John Terry, Ashley Cole, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Wayne Rooney, England has the backbone of a decent team, and there has never been any doubting the players’ passion for representing their country.

Bring on Argentina, roars Beckham
U.TV – UTV – Sep 11, 2005
“Beckham has also admitted he did not want to give up the responsibility of taking England`s penalties, but did it for the good of the side. The 30-year-old stepped aside in favour of Frank Lampard after missing three times in succession from the spot. He passed on the job earlier this year after missing in the Euro 2004 quarter-final shootout defeat against Portugal but Lampard did not get a chance from 12 yards until last month`s World Cup qualifier against Austria. Beckham said: “I never like to give up on things. I always believe I can succeed whatever I put my mind to. “But I think it is better for the team to have a regular penalty-taker rather than me who hardly ever takes them for Real. “The defining factor was Frank does it for Chelsea and to have a regular penalty-taker is important for us.

WORLD CUP 2006: Group E: Djukovic hoping for an upset
noticias.info – Sep 12, 2005
We shall see who is best on the day. As for Ghana, it would be a big mistake to underestimate them. They?re not known as the Brazil of Africa for nothing. That said, a national team coach should not be afraid of anyone, even the best team in the world. That?s not meant to sound smug in any way. I just mean that as national team coach, you always have to look for the best formula to win any match. I have a lot of experience in this job and that has always been my way of approaching things… You have to be very careful. There’s always a dark horse that comes through and it could be our turn to face them. Nobody gave Turkey much hope in 2002, let alone Greece in Euro 2004 and they went on to win it.

The squad’s coming along nicely and I’ve already got 90% of the starting line-up sorted out. They know me and they’re very motivated, but they can’t afford to be complacent. Karel Bruckner (CZE coach)Am I satisfied with the draw? I?m only ever satisfied at Christmas! There is never an easy group in the FIFA World Cup these days and there are no longer any outsiders as we all pretty much play on the same level, but let me say, you can all write this down ? Italy are the favourites in this group.

Connolly hopeful of Irish return
September 11, 2005
David Connolly has pleaded with Irish manager Brian Kerr for a chance to resurrect his international career after making the best possible start to life in the Premiership on Saturday afternoon. Wigan Athletic?s new ?3m signing scored on his debut as the Latics sealed a crucial away win against expected relegation rivals West Brom at the Hawthorns. And the former Leicester City man, who has not played a competitive game for Ireland since the Euro 2004 defeat at the hands of Switzerland two years ago, is eager to make a return to the international scene. He said: ?I don?t know why I?ve not played for two years. The players are there, and I did pull out of one squad with an injury. I don?t think the manager was too happy with that, and since then I?ve not been in. ?That could be because I was playing at a lower level, plus we?ve good players, so the call hasn?t come.

Stelios the star of Allardyce’s multiculture show at Bolton
The Observer – Sep 11, 2005
‘That was the most difficult thing about coming here [to Bolton]. I was used to winning week-in week-out at Olympiakos. ‘At Bolton we are not Manchester United or Liverpool, so I have had a lot of disappointments. I was not used to such emotions and it was hard for me to adjust. ‘Perhaps that is the reason why Liverpool sensed they might prise him away. But Bolton won through. Just days before the August transfer deadline, Stelios signed a new three-year contract, doubling his wages… From when he came it was obvious that we had no discipline, so he tried to take the German idea of discipline and the Greek idea of talent and he made the perfect combination. But it was at least two years before the results came, it was very hard work. ‘The triumph of Greece at Euro 2004 made Stelios a celebrity back in his homeland. ‘When I go home to Athens it is madness, everybody wants to talk to you,’ he says. Is it the same in Bolton? ‘I couldn’t say that everybody recognises me here, I’m not David Beckham. ‘To Bolton, though, his presence on the right of midfield arguably makes him more important.

UEFA EURO 2008™
uefa.comUEFA.com – Sep 12, 2005
Efficient preparationsPreparations are continuing in efficient fashion. Euro 2008 SA’s office in Nyon, Switzerland is moving into full swing, with 30 people starting to work on a detailed project plan. For Kallen, who was also responsible for the operational side of UEFA EURO 2004™ in Portugal, this is a positive development: “In Portugal, we began planning 600 days before the first match,” he reflects. “This means that we are more than one year earlier for the next tournament. ” Tournament officesCo-ordination is more complicated this time around, with two hosts, so tournament bases have also been set up in Berne and Vienna. “It just requires more telephone conferences, and we are unable to have ad hoc meetings,” Kallen said. The two neighbouring countries have excellent relations and Kallen is satisfied with the progress made: “They are individual countries, but they want to work together and organise a good event… The two neighbouring countries have excellent relations and Kallen is satisfied with the progress made: “They are individual countries, but they want to work together and organise a good event. They co-operate well. ” ‘Right spirit’In Switzerland, UEFA EURO 2008™ is not a major topic of discussion yet – something which presents no problem for Kallen: “Of course, people are not enthusiastic yet, but that isn’t necessary either. You can’t expect that people are thinking every day about an event which will take place in more than three years’ time. However, I’m sure that people in Switzerland and Austria will get into the right spirit pretty soon, especially as the 2006 FIFA World Cup final round is being played in Germany. ” Zurich boostIn Switzerland, the situation was unclear for some time as to the possibility of the city of Zurich hosting matches. Kallen is happy about the solution that has been found, whereby the Letzigrund stadium will stage games at the final tournament: “We will have a multifunctional stadium, that’s all we could ask for.

In August this year 10 men involved in a violent attack on a Portuguese-run pub in Thetford after England’s defeat in Euro 2004 were jailed for between eight and 18 months.

Rooney ‘raged at Beckham’
Sunday Times – The Sunday Times – Sep 11, 2005
At the insistence of McClaren and Eriksson, the two players shook hands on the pitch at the start of the second half, but Rooney was distracted and visibly unhappy for the rest of the match. There was more ill-feeling straight after the game, when the teenager is said to have “lost it again” by responding with verbal abuse after McClaren had read the riot act. Rooney has made no secret of the fact that he does not like playing on the wing in Eriksson’s new 4-5-1 formation, rather than the central striker’s role in which he excelled at Euro 2004, and it is said that he blames Beckham, rather than management, for the change. The England captain has engineered a new position for himself, as the holding player in midfield, and some of his teammates believe they are suffering from the consequent reshuffle. Whatever the reasons behind it, England’s descent into backbiting and recrimination will provide further ammunition for Eriksson’s critics, whose ranks are multiplying by the day. Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of this disharmony within the team is the fact that it was McClaren, not the head coach, who did most to stamp down on it. Not only has Eriksson been found wanting tactically, and as a motivator, it seems he is no disciplinarian either… At the insistence of McClaren and Eriksson, the two players shook hands on the pitch at the start of the second half, but Rooney was distracted and visibly unhappy for the rest of the match.

Rooney warns he will get better

At 19, Rooney is already one of the finest talents in the game, but insists his development is not complete. Rooney told Manchester United Radio: “I always think I can improve as a player and also keep improving my contribution to the team. “I had a good season last season but I want to do better than I did last season and if I can do I’ll be happy. ”

Even at his tender age, Rooney has become a vital part of both the Manchester United and England team. Rooney was still recovering from the broken foot he suffered at Euro 2004 when he joined Manchester United in a ?24m deal from Everton… “I had a good season last season but I want to do better than I did last season and if I can do I’ll be happy. ”

Even at his tender age, Rooney has become a vital part of both the Manchester United and England team. Rooney was still recovering from the broken foot he suffered at Euro 2004 when he joined Manchester United in a ?24m deal from Everton. But he still managed to finish United’s top scorer last season, one ahead of Ruud van Nistelrooy. Rooney entered the current campaign with a full pre-season behind him and has already scored three goals this term. Rooney said: “I haven’t set myself or been set a specific number of goals to reach. “Although I had a good season last year, it was disappointing for the team as a whole.

UNITED: Fletch Happy To Stay Out Of The Spotlight

How does that make you feel?
“It’s nice that the manager always mentions me but I look at myself as being a different type of player who does a lot of hard work for the team that goes unnoticed. Wayne and Cristiano are world stars who have got unbelievable attacking talent and can score goals. Keeping the ball might not be as flash [as what they do] but hopefully I do just as important a job for the team in different areas. ”

So you’re happy to leave the spotlight to them. “Oh yes I like it just the way it is! It’s not my scene but to be honest I don’t think it’s Wayne or Cristiano’s scene either, especially Wayne… Injuries are part and parcel of football, you’ve just got to try and prepare yourself and your body for them as much as you can and we do a lot of exercises that aim to prevent injuries. Obviously you’re not going to prevent them all but these little exercises may help you come back after six weeks rather than eight. ”

Looking back on your career so far is there one moment that stands out for you as being a real turning point?
“I think the goal I scored for Scotland against Holland [in the Euro 2004 first leg play-off] was very significant. I think the manager was at that game and I seemed to feature a lot more after that match. Maybe showing him what I could do on the international stage helped my United career but that’s what can happen in football and vice versa. It was an important goal and a great moment for me personally. To score my first goal in my second game for Scotland at Hampden Park was fairytale stuff and a really special moment.
