But for their manager Lawrie Sanchez, it is all part of a slow building process which he began in modest fashion when he took over the reins from Sammy McIlroy less than three years ago. Northern Ireland?s Euro 2008 qualifying wins over Spain and Latvia, and a draw away to Denmark, have boosted their campaign and also catapulted them into the top 50 of FIFA?s rankings for the first time. More pertinently, their 45th place leaves them above struggling neighbours the Republic of Ireland ? which has left Sanchez purring with delight. Sanchez told PA Sport: ?It?s fantastic news… ?Now they have knocked over teams like England and Spain and have become a credible force on the international scene and capable of beating sides in the top 10 of world football. ?
Northern Irish football was at a serious low-point when Sanchez arrived and although there has been the odd setback, progress has been steady. ?When I took over the best part of three years ago we had not scored for 13 games in something like two years, and we had not won in 14 games. ? ? Sapa-AFP

The Gunners also have six points from two matches in Group G after wins over FC Porto and Hamburg. England’s other representatives, Chelsea and Liverpool, who lead Group A and C respectively, are in action tomorrow. Wayne Rooney, one of England’s many flops in their doomed Euro 2008 trip to Croatia, is certain to face the Danes at Old Trafford despite not having scored in the tournament since his hat-trick against Fenerbahce in September 2004. “I am surprised he has not scored in the Champions League for two years,” said United boss Sir Alex Ferguson. “We had a bad campaign last year, so you have to put that aside, but nonetheless, I am surprised. ”
Rooney was in sparkling form on Saturday as United maintained their place at the top of the English Premiership with a 3-1 win at Wigan. He failed to improve his recent run of just two goals in his last 17 games for club and country, but Ferguson claimed he has no worries about the youngster.

It is an amazing transformation from when Sanchez took over from Sammy McIlroyless than three years ago. “When I took over the best part of three years ago we had notscored for 13 games in something like two years, and we had not won in 14games,” said Sanchez. “I said at the time the first thing was to score a goal, the next was to wina game and the third was to improve our world ranking from 124th. “We scored in our first game, won our second, are now 45th in the rankings. ”

Sanchez brought in some new players but his success has been built on a mix ofestablished names and new blood. “It has been a mixture of the experienced players who stayed on – some of thosewho could not cope with what we wanted fell by the wayside – and we re-energisedwith some fresh blood from below,” he added.

Beckham’s England aim – Oct 18, 2006
“The former captain has not played for England since the World Cup and new coach Steve McClaren has yet to pick him. But McClaren believes Beckham, 31, can still play his way back into the squad. With support for recall growing among the public, Beckham said: “It’s nice to be wanted back because two months ago everyone was saying, ‘It’s better now’ and ‘The team is playing better’. ” Beckham cannot command a regular place in the Real Madrid starting line-up but has vowed to fight for his position and says it is not in his nature to accept a role on the periphery of any team. He said: “It’s the reason why I haven’t retired from international football because I still believe that I do have a part to play in the future of England… He said: “It’s the reason why I haven’t retired from international football because I still believe that I do have a part to play in the future of England. “It’s hard to watch England without being in the team,” Beckham said. “It’s still hard and it will be until I’m back in there. But what people have to realise is there’s going to be tough games. There’s going to be good games, bad games, and it’s been two tough games for them – one at Old Trafford where usually our record is good.
