One week shorterThis is based on the fact UEFA EURO 2008™ starts on 7 June 2008 – 19 days after the last suitable date for domestic league matches on 18 May, and because the EURO final round is one week shorter than the FIFA World Cup and has fewer matches. FIFA has decided domestic leagues must end on certain dates to give players the chance to recuperate before World Cup final rounds.

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Rapid resolve to try again
noticias.info – Dec 13, 2005
Coaching switchSince joining in 2004, coach Josef Hickersberger has rebuilt Rapid, leading them to a 31st Bundesliga title last season, but his tenure ends in January when he takes over Austria’s national team ahead of UEFA EURO 2008?. He will be replaced by SV Pasching’s Georg Zellhofer. Contrasting fortunesHickersberger’s last match in charge was Saturday’s 2-0 reverse at SV Austria Salzburg, which ended a seven-game unbeaten streak in domestic action. Europe has proved much tougher, however, with all six UEFA Champions League Group A ties being lost. Indeed, Rapid have yet to win a UEFA Champions League match proper in 12 attempts – though the income gained this time around will not go amiss… Different class”We wanted to win our final group game and we played well against Juventus,” he said. “We were unlucky at times against Club Brugge [KV] but we are not at the same level as teams like Juve or [FC] Bayern [M?nchen]. However, the more we become accustomed to this standard of football, the better we will become. New coachIf Rapid are to reach the group stage again, much will depend on Zellhofer. Hungarian international midfielder Gy?rgy Kors?s sees no reson why he should not succeed at the Ernst Happel stadium. “All the players know his pedigree and will try to improve even more under his stewardship,” he said.

Positive effectThe hosts of the U21 finals will be named at least two years in advance in future, rather than chosen from among the teams qualifying for a final round. “[The move to odd years] could have one other positive effect,” said Mr Olsson. “It means that countries who could not organise the final round of the European Championship could perhaps organise an U21 final round. We are opening up a totally new opportunity for countries.

” “Yes, I did,” agreed an unrepentant Mourinho. “And I will do it again. We know what fair play is, but we’re not stupid; their player was cheating by pretending to be injured. My players pretend not to be injured when they are. ” Mourinho, who was fined £5,000 by the FA after using the word “cheat” towards Manchester United players after their Carling Cup semi-final in January, continued: “Fair play is not to cheat, so if someone is guilty of unsporting behaviour, it is them. It happened two metres in front of me and all my bench was completely sure about it.

I think the next few years will be really exciting for this Liverpool team. Defender Jamie Carragher, however, said the class of 2005 had not yet earned the right to be compared to the great Liverpool teams of the 1970s and 1980s. “Records are nice but those Liverpool teams were winning [English] championships,” said Carragher. “They were a lot more successful.

I don’t know what we have to do to make them come out. We have played some lovely football at times and for whatever reason they chose to stay away. ” It was not just the absent supporters that drew Coleman’s ire, but the lack of patience exhibited by some of those in attendance. “We are defending a lot better than we have in the past and now you can tell from some of the moaning and groaning from the main stand that they want us to flood forward a lot more — they expect us to be out of sight after 20 minutes,” he said. “No team is going to come here and roll over. We ’re at the top of the league and there to be shot at. The fans getting on the players’ backs is only going to make them more edgy and nervous than they are already showing signs of.

Used on article pages to rotate the images of a story. The speakers were all sober sorts, not given to hype or hysteria, and accustomed to handling the frenetic expectation that events such as the draw for a football World Cup can generate. On one subject, though, they all reached for superlatives. Lars Lagerback, the head coach of Sweden, broke off from assessing his country’s immediate challenge — Paraguay, Trinidad & Tobago and England as Group B opponents — to declare his team had possibly the best forward partnership of any country. One of that pair, he continued, “must be among the best centre-forwards in the world”. The Trinidad manager, Dutchman Leo Beenhakker, was not so much strolling but sprinting down memory lane, boasting: “I was the one who picked him up to bring him abroad.
