UEFA EURO 2008™ – Teams – Jan 8, 2006
• Luxembourg then went 709 minutes without scoring another goal, a sequence that was ended by Claude Reiter 51 minutes into their 5-1 defeat away against Russia on 8 October 2005. How did they perform in UEFA EURO 2004™? • Another pointless campaign with eight defeats from eight matches and no goals scored and 21 conceded. • Luxembourg’s fortunes have nosedived since the EURO ’96™ qualification round as, up until the start of qualifying for UEFA EURO 2008™, they had not managed to win a point in competitive international football since 11 October 1995. Between the UEFA European Championship and the FIFA World Cup, in statistical terms, that amounted to 35 matches lost in a row with eight goals scored and 97 conceded. What is their best performance in the UEFA European Championship? • Luxembourg’s first involvement in the competition has proved to be their most successful. That came in the latter stages of 1963 when they first recorded a 1-1 draw away to the Netherlands in Amsterdam. Klaas Nuninga opened the scoring for the home side after five minutes before Paul May equalised for the visitors shortly after the half-hour mark.

Curbs on Romanov & Co – Jan 6, 2006
“We have embarked on a strategic plan and we are more than hopeful of getting back to qualifying for tournament finals. “Euro 2008 will be difficult – but it’s possible – but the World Cup finals of 2010 are realistic. “Our current situation emphasises the importance of bidding for tournaments as we did for Euro 2008. Hopefully we have not abandoned the idea of hosting a tournament, because Uefa have changed their voting procedures after that debacle. “I will always be of the view that Scotland should be on the major stage. Let’s not lose that thought. “Sectarianism, too, is in the strategy plan and we are committed to working with the Scottish Executive to produce an action plan before the end of the year.

• Although they would drop two points away to Estonia (0-0), by the time they faced Croatia away in their last match, first place in the standings was already assured. For the record, Ivica Olić’s 48th-minute goal separated the sides at Zagreb’s Maksimir stadium. • But the final tournament proved not to be a positive experience for the Bulgarians as they opened the group stage on the receiving end of a 5-0 defeat by Sweden. Stilian Petrov was then dismissed in their second match, a 2-0 loss to Denmark, and they ended their three-match stint with a 2-1 defeat against Italy. The Bulgarians actually took the lead through Martin Petrov via a penalty on the stroke of half-time, but the Italians hit back thanks to strikes from Simone Perrotta (48) and Antonio Cassano (90+4) to leave their opponents pointless from their three matches. What is their best performance in the UEFA European Championship? • Bulgaria’s best performance in the competition took place at UEFA EURO ’96™ where they participated in the final tournament group stage. Having held Spain to a 1-1 draw in their opening match, the Bulgarians defeated Romania 1-0, but needing only a point from their final fixture in the group stage, they slumped to a 3-1 defeat against France… To date, their victory against Romania is the only match Bulgaria have won in a UEFA European Championship final tournament. Key facts • Bulgaria have qualified for two of the last three UEFA European Championship final rounds. All-time record • Up until the start of qualifying for UEFA EURO 2008™, Bulgaria had appeared in all twelve UEFA European Championship qualifying competitions, and had played 89 matches in the competition. In that time, they won 39, drew 19 and lost 31 of those fixtures with 131 goals scored and 101 conceded. All rights reserved.

Gallas, who irked the Chelsea coach by failing to join up with the squad on their pre-season tour of America, had been omitted from the first team this season. Mourinho, with Kenyon?s agreement, was prepared to let the defender play solely reserve team football for the final year of his contract if they could not engineer a sale which suited the Blues ? however disruptive that might have been for the squad. Chelsea were not prepared to sell Gallas outright to Arsenal, or any other club for that matter, as the club would have been perceive that outcome to be a victory for the 29-year-old. Clearly the best solution for the Blues was to be rid of the player, in a deal they were happy with and their player-plus cash agreement with Arsenal for Cole brought about an ideal conclusion to one of the longest running transfer sagas of the summer. But the Chelsea coach has since been left fuming by suggestions that Kenyon went behind his back to dispose of Gallas and ? as a result ? PA Sport understand the club have held lengthy discussions with their lawyers over possible legal action… But while Cole celebrated his move, the club?s midfielder Claude Makelele confessed he had been forced to join up with France. The 33-year-old retired from international football after the World Cup final and underlined his decision with a letter to the French Federation on August 22. But France coach Raymond Domenech selected Makelele for France?s Euro 2008 qualifiers and threatened him with domestic suspension under FIFA?s rules. Mourinho hit back by accusing France of treating Makelele like a ?slave? and Chelsea confirmed the player had sent a retirement note to the French FA two days prior to his controversial call-up.

Euro 2008 Qualifiers: Spain – Liechtenstein – Jan 9, 2006
Despite having an enviable array of forward to choose from, La Furia Roja struggle to provide the frontmen with ammunition and the strikers rarely create clear chances themselves. Legs may have been tired and eyes on the remainder of pre-season, but when the Spanish met a modest Iceland side in Rejkyavik in August chances were rare and the scoreline remained goalless. During the World Cup, Luis Aragonés’ team was praised for its’ attacking promise and some uplifting display in the first couple of matches. The opening victory against Ukraine was heralded as a new beginning and it was going to be the tournament where the country’s promise finally became reality… Aragonés was widely tipped to step down after the World Cup, but he was talked into staying on for another two years by the Spanish Football Federation. After having their belief in the team lifted only three months ago, it is going to take a lot to persuade the media and the public that times have changed and that Spain can perform on the international stage. As for the visitors, Liechtenstein did not play their first match until 1981 and their first official encounter was two years after that when they were beaten by Switzerland. After suffering their worst ever defeat in 1996, 11-1 by Macedonia, the country was given a lift as they beat Luxembourg in the qualifiers for the 2006 World Cup Finals. Having never made it into the finals of a major championships and with few victories under their belts, Liechtenstein are ranked 124th in the world by FIFA. There were encouraging results though in the World Cup qualifiers last year as the side held Portugal to a 2-2 draw and picked up a point in a goalless contest with Slovakia. TEAM NEWS
Aragonés has chosen the same squad that played in the friendly against Iceland and only Celta’s Borja Oubiña did not play in the World Cup Finals, as he came in to replace Marcos Senna in midfield.

Euro 2008 Qualifying Preview: Czech Republic – Wales – Jan 9, 2006
Pavel Nedved has finally retired after a dazzling international career while Karol Poborsky has also hung up his boots. Coach Karel Bruckner will therefore have to cope without arguably his two most prominent midfield influences of the last ten years. But Patrik Berger, another big player in the national team before also retiring, believes there is every reason for optimism among the Czech supporters. “We might not have the same kind of experience in the team as we did in the World Cup, but we have fresh legs,” he told BBC Wales Sport… Coach Karel Bruckner will therefore have to cope without arguably his two most prominent midfield influences of the last ten years. But Patrik Berger, another big player in the national team before also retiring, believes there is every reason for optimism among the Czech supporters. “We might not have the same kind of experience in the team as we did in the World Cup, but we have fresh legs,” he told BBC Wales Sport. “The young players are good, otherwise they wouldn’t be in the squad. ”
Arsenal playmaker Tomas Rosicky will become his country’s youngest ever captain, replacing Tomas Galasek. The onus is very much on the former Borussia Dortmund ace to provide the creative impetus following Nedved’s retirement. It was ultimately a disappointing World Cup for the Czech Republic after they started so brightly with a 3-0 win over the USA.

UEFA EURO 2008™ – Teams – Jan 8, 2006
They dropped their two points in the opening game of that four-match sequence, taking the lead twice away against Bulgaria, before having to settle for a point. A Stilian Petrov own goal on the half hour put Belgium ahead, and though Dimitar Berbatov equalised after 52 minutes, the visitors restored their lead within three minutes through Philippe Clement. But Bulgaria were not to be denied and Svetoslav Todorov equalised from the penalty spot 19 minutes from time. • The Belgians avenged their defeat to Croatia in Brussels with a 2-1 win thanks to two goals from Wesley Sonck (35, 43), and though successes against Andorra (3-0) and Estonia (2-0) were included in the run-in, their purple patch of form came too late. What is their best performance in the UEFA European Championship? • Belgium contested the 1980 UEFA European Championship final, but lost the final at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico against West Germany (2-1). Two goals from Horst Hrubesch (10, 88) provided a German win, but not after current Belgian national team coach René Vandereycken (75) had earlier equalised. • Belgium had originally won their qualifying round group with twelve points from eight matches, drawing their first four engagements before winning the remainder at the expense of Norway, Portugal and Scotland (twice)… • They remained unbeaten in the eight-team finals, winning their group and a place in the final with draws against England (1-1) and Italy (0-0) sandwiching a 2-1 defeat of Spain thanks to goals from Erik Gerets (17) and Julien Cools (65). Key facts • Since appearing in the 1980 UEFA European Championship final, Belgium have competed in only two final tournaments having qualified for the 1984 finals in France and then co-hosted the UEFA EURO 2000™ finals with the Netherlands. All-time record • Up until the start of qualifying for UEFA EURO 2008™, Belgium had appeared in the UEFA European Championship on eleven occasions, and had played 82 matches. In that time, they had won 37, drawn 20 and lost 25 with 124 goals scored and 96 conceded. • The Belgians did not participate in the 1960 UEFA European Championship.

They finished in third place behind the Netherlands and the Czech Republic in their efforts to advance to the 2006 FIFA World Cup finals. • Romania had eight wins and a draw from their twelve-game campaign to finish seven points behind the Dutch, two points behind the Czechs and nine points clear of their closest pursuers, Finland. • Three wins from their opening three games had Romania in pole position early in proceedings, but they finished off 2004 with a 1-0 loss away against the Czech Republic and were then held to a 1-1 draw away against Armenia despite holding an interval lead following Ciprian Marica’s 29th-minute goal. Karen Dokhoyan equalised for the Armenians on the hour mark.

He took over after Vogts presided over the shambles at the start of the World Cup qualifying campaign, but despite a series of positive results that prolonged the agony of possible qualification until the penultimate fixture, Smith was always looking beyond Germany 2006. “Deep down I didn ’t think we had a realistic opportunity to get to the World Cup,” he admits. The Euro 2008 campaign will be his own, though, and he welcomes that challenge. “I’m always optimistic. If you don’t have optimism you’ve got a problem. I’m happy to handle the higher expectation level, because it means we’re doing better. The group get on very well, and we’ve got rid of the negative feelings they had… I’m happy to handle the higher expectation level, because it means we’re doing better. The group get on very well, and we’ve got rid of the negative feelings they had. “There’s a feelgood factor if we are successful and it comes not just from football people. That’s where you realise the responsibility, and the players do as well. ” Some critics claim there is not enough work to justify a full-time manager, but their memories obviously don’t stretch back to the early 1970s, when the SFA advertised the post claiming it was ‘suitable for somebody with outside interests’. Smith refutes the charge. “There is a hiatus at the moment but next season we could be drawn in an eight-nation group in the European championships.

• At home, Moldova remained competitive, losing 1-0 to Italy, then drawing with Scotland (1-1) and Norway (0-0) before defeating Belarus 2-0 thanks to a Serghei Rogaciov double (17, 49). In their concluding home fixture, they took the lead against Slovenia through Rogaciov (31) only for the visitors to score two second half goals without reply through Klemen Lavrič (47) and Matej Mavrič (58). How did they perform in UEFA EURO 2004™? • Four defeats from their first four matches ensured Moldova would not have a say in the destiny of group honours during their UEFA EURO 2004™ qualifying campaign. However, home victories against Austria and Belarus secured a fourth place finish in the five-team group. The Czech Republic topped the standings with 22 points, three clear of the Netherlands with Austria third on nine and Belarus propping up the group on three. • Moldova turned in some respectable home performances, with two wins from four. They actually took the lead against the Netherlands on 2 April 2003 in Tiraspol through Vadim Boret after 16 minutes… Key facts • Moldova’s only away win in the competition prior to the start of qualifying for UEFA EURO 2008™ actually came in their first-ever match, a 1-0 win in Georgia on 7 September 1994. • Their four home victories in the competition prior to the start of qualifying for UEFA EURO 2008™ have all been by one goal.

They lost 5-0 to both the Netherlands and Czech Republic during their UEFA EURO 2004™ qualifying campaign. • Moldova’s first international match ended in a 4-2 home defeat against Georgia on 2 July 1991.

Euro 2008 Qualifying Preview: Georgia – France – Jan 9, 2006
A 0-0 draw against lowly
Kazakhstan, which was the only point the Kazakhs earned in their
entire campaign for 2006 World Cup Qualifying is the perfect example
of just how Jekyll and Hyde the Georgians can be. Hoping
to change the inconsistency of their results, the Georgian FA
appointed German boss Klaus Toppmoller last February. Toppmoller has
set his sights on qualifying for Euro 2008, however in a group that
also includes World Cup champions Italy, France, Ukraine, Scotland,
Lithuania, and the Faroe Islands, it seems more like mission
impossible for the Georgians than anything else. However, former
Bayer Leverkusen coach Toppmoller has instilled a serious belief in
this side and the early indications, a 6-0 thrashing of the Faroe
Islands two weeks ago, were quite positive, even if against lowly
opposition. ‘

Atmosphere Expected In Tbilisi

Georgia can pull off a famous result against the heavily-favoured
French remains to be seen. It does appear to be shaping up though as

a difficult night for Domenech’s men already. The newly refurbished
Boris Paichadze Stadium is already a sell-out with all 60,000 tickets
having been sold… The newly refurbished
Boris Paichadze Stadium is already a sell-out with all 60,000 tickets
having been sold. Adding to the expected ‘hot’ atmosphere to be
generated by the local supporters, game-time temperatures are also
expected to be very high, as in the last few days a heat wave has seen
the temperature rise to as high as 40C (100F) in the capital. Toss in
a stadium bomb threat (the stadium has since been given the all
clear) in the past week and it would be no surprise if the French are
not too thrilled about opening up their campaign with a fixture like
this. FORM

Euro 2008 Qualifier Preview – Scotland-Faroe Islands – Jan 9, 2006
Add to that the renewed optimism around the country and the young, hungry Scots players that are beginning to firmly establish themselves in the SPL and now the international set-up. With the likes of Shaun Maloney (SPL Player of the Year), Barry Ferguson (captain of club and country), Rangers tricky winger and Kirin Cup hero Chris Burke and the brilliant Scott Brown of Hibs all absent, Smith is still in a position to send out a strong side, packed with industry, aggression and, more importantly, goals. Great Strides
Currently ranked 169 in the FIFA Rankings, the Faroese are certainly not one of world football’s major players. However, gone are the days when teams can expect to roll over the tiny nation. Two recent thrashings aside, the Faroes have approached their football with a more resolute perspective in recent years. Only once in the last World Cup qualifying campaign – in a group containing France, Switzerland and Ireland – did they lose by more than three goals, relative success for a nation of less than 50,000 people. Old Friends
Scots fans still quiver when you mention the Faroese, recalling memories of 4 years ago when the Scots travelled to Toftir expecting a comfortable start to their Euro 2004 qualifying campaign.

Ireland: Staunton role central to search for new manager
Sunday Times – The Sunday Times – Jan 8, 2006
The chief executive, John Delaney, is understood to be very keen on Staunton getting that job, though on the betting markets the price has been shortening dramatically on Ireland’s most capped player becoming the new manager outright. His teammate at Walsall and fellow former Ireland international, Mark Kinsella, said on Friday that Staunton had not spoken to him about the Ireland job, though Staunton does have the blessing of his manager at the west midlands club, Paul Merson, should he decide to take on a new role. Staunton is regarded as close to Delaney, since they were involved in negotiations over payments for Ireland players and particularly since the upheaval in Saipan in 2002, when he was appointed captain of the team after the departure of Roy Keane. “We believe this should be a three-way process,” one senior FAI source said. “There’s no way the association would attempt to impose a deputy on somebody, but at the same time we want to have a say. This may present some difficulties for some of the candidates but it is something we feel quite strongly about and there may have to be a little bit of mixing and matching… The impetus would appear to have been provided by the fact that the FAI has decided not to pursue its interest in its favoured candidate, Martin O’Neill. The former Celtic manager has taken a break from football to care for his wife, Geraldine, who is being treated for cancer, and has given no indication that he is ready to return to the game. The management issue has also become more pressing with the draw for Euro 2008 scheduled for the end of this month and a friendly against Sweden taking place on March 1, though the FAI has stressed that it doesn’t regard either event as an absolute deadline for making an appointment. While FAI sources were still indicating that Staunton would be preferred in the deputy’s role, betting on some markets has hardened on him becoming manager outright. Betfair was quoting Staunton at shortened odds of 11-10 yesterday, with the second-placed candidate, Terry Venables, at 8-1. Venables, 63 last Friday, is reported to be annoyed that nobody from the FAI has contacted him. Should Delaney contact him at this late stage he can expect a very cool reception.

SOCCER: Sanchez insists pride is the key
U.TV – UTV – Jan 9, 2006
The Irish Football Association have revealed that the squad and staff will share a bonus of `?1million plus` should they qualify for Euro 2008. Sanchez hopes his team take the first step towards that goal tomorrow when they face Iceland at Windsor Park… “They are not in it for the money. That is not the motivation and why they are here. “The motivation is playing well for their country and building up their number of caps. “Sanchez took the unusual step of going public on his team the day before the game. Sammy Clingan has retained his place after an impressive display in the victory against Finland in a warm-up match last month.

Fourteen have been called up now that the serious work begins, but Mauro Camoranesi, Vincenzo Iaquinta, Alessandro Del Piero, Simone Barone and Luca Toni are not yet back to full fitness, Alessandro Nesta is still injured, Angelo Peruzzi has retired from international football and Marco Materazzi is suspended. “We, the older players, have to help the new coach build a squad,” explained 33-year-old Fabio Cannavaro, the rock at the heart of the Real Madrid defence. Superlative on German soil, the talented centre-back expects the France test to be, “just a typical qualifier with three points at stake, ahead of the real revenge match which would be the Euro 2008 final. Cassano returns The biggest question mark facing Donadoni has been the situation surrounding his captain, Francesco Totti, who met with the coach recently for a 40-minute discussion. Following his lacklustre showings in Germany, Totti made it clear that he will only turn out for the national side when he is fully fit, and Donadoni seems happy to go along with that proposition.
