Nothing surprises me and you just have to handle it. ‘He added: ‘I have enjoyed being captain, but it is something I have done froma very young age really. It is not as new to me as people think. ‘I was captain of Salford Schools, then Manchester United’s youth team and Ihave captained the senior side many times. ‘When I did first get into the side at Old Trafford there have been somepretty special captains to work under. ‘Giggs is backing Toshack’s tenure and is involved in a low-key two-game summertrip, unlike many who had previously shunned such internationals. But the 32-year-old Giggs is not doing that as any sort of opposition to theprevious Wales regime… He has been the ultimate professional, father figure, inspiration and evenunion rep for a young brood of Welsh players who must make him feel more ancientevery time he joins up with his country. There are 16 and 17-year-old players now involved with the Wales squad. And if there was any need for a further statement of intent for theforthcoming Euro 2008 qualifiers and the next World Cup campaign, it is thatGiggs plays in an away friendly for his country for the first time. His withdrawals from anything but qualifiers were legendary. But Giggs will bethere in Bilbao’s San Mames Stadium, without even a cap to win for a game notofficially a full international. Giggs spent time this week at the Welsh team HQ outside Cardiff negotiatingthe bonuses for next season’s Euro ties, and then had to nurse 16-year-oldGareth Bale and 17-year-old Lewin Nyatanga through training with their moresenior colleagues. Giggs said: ‘I have learned from all my captains.

‘Hristo has all our support,’ said BFU’s vice-presidentLechkov, after returning from the exhibition tournament inJapan. ‘No one doubts that Stoichkov is the right man forBulgarian team. ”The result in the match against Scotland is not the mostimportant thing, it happens so often in football,’ addedStoichkov’s team mate Lechkov. Former European Footballer of the Year Stoichkov succeededPlamen Markov after Bulgaria’s poor performance at the Euro2004. But despite his boundless energy Bulgaria failed toqualify for World Cup finals in Germany. Stoichkov, who as a player inspired Bulgaria to thesemi-finals of the 1994 World Cup in the United States said hehas no plan to resign. ‘I’m not going to make a step back,’ he said… ‘The matches we played in the tournament were useful. I hadthe opportunity to draw some conclusions and I tested someplayers who I will rely on in the coming qualifiers,’ saidStoichkov. ‘Our main goal is to qualify for the Euro 2008 finals but weneed to work in a calm atmosphere. ‘Your views on this story?.

West Ham United had been a minimum of 240 seconds away from winning the FA Cup for the first time since 1980 when Gerrard unleashed his Exocet from 35 yards. All those forever blowing bubbles, the jubilant West Ham fans, fell silent, shattered. It was not enough to win an exhilarating FA Cup Final, which ebbed and flowed in manic fashion and will rank, if not technically, as one of the best in modern times. What it did — and pray that Gerrard repeats the trick in the World Cup finals next month — was reignite the Liverpool fire that had just about burnt out.

In a painful-to-watch closing half-hour of last-man standing, as the teams tired and the players toppled like ninepins, Liverpool were the first to appear to settle for penalties.

Wenger is attempting to ease the burden on his prolific striker, explaining: “Thierry has a responsibility in these kind of games that he certainly will not deny and he has an advantage in that he knows Paris and the Stade de France.

Of the official documents in the Spanish archives, not one alludes to Columbus’s nationality; indeed, the first mention of the explorer refers to “Cristobal de Colomo, foreigner”. He died in poverty aged 55, believing that his achievements had not won the acclaim they deserved. Half a millennium later Christopher Columbus is, in a sense, coming home: wherever home turns out to be.

All the same, Puyol versus Henry announces itself as an intriguing sub-plot. Puyol is Barça’s captain, and it doesn’t need his Catalan-striped armband to tell you that. He’s vocal and conspicuous, not only for the overhanging mop of hair that even face-to-face makes it hard to look the man in the eyes. Puyol is not the cheerleading type away from the pitch but he’s a local, and can remember watching the first and only occasion Barcelona won the European Cup at home on his own in Lleida, Catalonia.
