World Cup scouting for England
BBC News – May 31, 2006
When he brought Crouch and Theo Walcott on after the hour mark Eriksson went back to his 4-4-2 formation – and Joe Cole, for one, seemed to enjoy the greater attacking options as he bombed forward in the closing stages. SVEN’S SUBSTITUTIONS

Perhaps the most criticism Eriksson has received during his England tenure has been for not making decisive substitutions when most urgently required. At both the 2002 World Cup and Euro 2004, the England coach was out-thought and out-manoeuvered by Luiz Felipe Scolari, first in charge of Brazil, then Portugal. With the striker situation especially delicate this time around, Eriksson will need to be more aggressive and tactically adept when he turns to his bench for inspiration in Germany.

BBC News – May 30, 2006
And four minutes later, Schweinsteiger headed in a Bernd Schneider free-kick to salvage the draw. “Obviously it feels better to equalise after being two goals down,” said Germany coach Jurgen Klinsmann. “A defeat would have been irritating but not the end of the world. We let them have too many chances. ”

Klinsmann started with Ballack on the right of midfield with Tim Borowski given a free role in the centre, but the change backfired. Atsushi Yanagisawa slipped in an early reverse pass to Bolton’s Hidetoshi Nakata, who forced goalkeeper Jens Lehmann to save with his feet. The visitors had an even better chance when Nakata dispossessed Torsten Frings, received a return pass and shot limply into the arms of Lehmann on the edge of his area… The visitors had an even better chance when Nakata dispossessed Torsten Frings, received a return pass and shot limply into the arms of Lehmann on the edge of his area. Lehmann had to save again from Yanagisawa from another swift break at the start of the second half but could not deny German-based striker Takahara. Jens Nowotny came on to replace Christoph Metzelder at centre-back and win his first cap since Euro 2004. But the veteran was almost immediately caught hopelessly out of position as Japan broke from a corner, leaving Takahara to take advantage by lifting a shot into the top of the net. Eight minutes later, Takahara helped himself to a second, turning inside Ballack from the right of the area and scoring in off the par post. Germany bounced back but supporters will demand an improvement in their final warm-up match against Colombia on 2 June before they open the World Cup against Costa Rica in Munich on 9 June. Germany: Lehmann, Ballack, Schneider, Frings, Klose, Metzelder (Nowotny 55), Borowski (Odonkor 63), Schweinsteiger, Mertesacker, Jansen, Podolski (Neuville 70).

Deadline for hooligans to surrender passports
Guardian Unlimited – May 31, 2006
Forty-four uniformed British police officers will be deployed around Germany to help smooth out any misunderstandings between the hosts and the travelling fans. They will receive their final training in German law and policing methods today at the Hendon Police Training College, north London. England fans in Germany will not be greeted by lines of visor-wearing police officers behind riot shields. Instead, English-speaking officers will be deployed in the frontline, dispensing friendly welcomes and helpful travel advice. Willy Kosling, deputy chief of security for the World Cup, said: “Our police are being trained to be friendly. They will be the first representatives that people meet at the airports and train stations. They have been issued with a handbook with advice for fans about trains and hotels… The number of fans who are violent is very small. “Andrin Cooper, a spokesman for the Football Association, believes the omens are good. There was just one arrest – for cannabis possession – around the grounds during Euro 2004 in Portugal, a sharp contrast with the 945 arrests during Euro 2000 in Belgium and the Netherlands. “Things have changed. The banning orders have helped target troublemakers and the atmosphere has become a lot more enjoyable,” Mr Cooper said. On Guardian Unlimited.

The 32-year-old was a surprise call-up to the national team after suffering his fourth anterior cruciate ligament injury earlier this year. He saw his first international action since Euro 2004 in the second half of last night’s 2-2 draw against Japan, who torched the German back-line and created a flurry of chances. Nowotny could have done better for each of Japan’s goals, but Klinsmann was full of praise for the veteran. ‘He did very well and he knows that we hold him in high esteem,’ he said. ‘He plays a major role in our plans because he has so much experience and can read the game. ‘
Youngsters Per Mertesacker and Christoph Metzelder are widely considered Klinsmann’s first-choice central defenders, with Chelsea’s Robert Huth also in contention… ‘
Youngsters Per Mertesacker and Christoph Metzelder are widely considered Klinsmann’s first-choice central defenders, with Chelsea’s Robert Huth also in contention.

Nowotny has already begun offering his advice, admitting there is plenty of room for improvement. ‘Today there was light and shadow in our performance,’ he said. ‘We need to address those things internally and improve the timing.
