Stijnen was quoted on Monday in Gazet Van Antwerpen, a Belgian regional newspaper, as saying in Dutch: "After two minutes we will normally have to attack Ronaldo so much that he will have to leave the pitch."

7/02/07 Ireland saves Ireland - Manchester City midfielder Stephen Ireland struck deep into injury time to spare Ireland's blushes after San Marino had battled gamely in tonight's Group D qualifier. Ireland had taken the lead just after the break when Kevin Kilbane nodded in Steve Finnan's cross. Ireland continued to press but were stunned on 86 minutes when Manuel Marani scored an unlikely equaliser for the home side. San Marino, on the verge of one of their greatest ever results, had their hearts broken with almost the last kick of the game as Ireland won the game for Ireland.

25/01/07 Euro 2008 qualifier against Andorra set for Barcelona - UEFA have agreed to a request from the Andorran Football Association to play the Euro 2008 qualifier against England in Barcelona. The game will be staged at the Olympic Stadium, home of Espanyol.

23/01/07 Poland may be kicked out of Euro 2008 - FIFA and UEFA have warned Polish officials that they may take action following a row between the Polish government and the National Football Association. The Polish Minister for Sport suspended the board of the National Association and appointed his own man following arrests during a match fixing investigation. Former Polish international Roman Kosecki, who intends to run for election to the head of the Polish FA in March, told Reuters, 'The next decision will very likely be the suspension of the football association as a member of FIFA'.

With the next Euro 2008 qualifiers around the corner a solution will have to be reached soon. Government intervention in football matters contravenes article 17 of the FIFA statute and football's governing body have not taken kindly to meddling governments in the past.

12/12/06 Euro 2012 may be expanded to 24 teams - A decision will be made in January 2007 but UEFA chief Lennart Johansson has said that he is 'convinced' the expansion plans will get the green light. Follow all Euro 2012 latest news at

15/11/06 Group E - England down to third after latest Euro 2008 qualifiers - Croatia strengthened their position at the head of Group E tonight, beating Israel 4-3 in Ramat Gan. Pint size Croatian schemer Da Eduardo hit a hat-trick to take the Croatians two points clear at the top of the table.

Russia move into second spot courtesy of a comfortable 2-0 victory in Skopje against Macedonia.

Results: Israel 3 Croatia 4, Macedonia 0 Russia 2

Group A - Finland top Group A after labouring to a 1-0 victory in Helsinki over minnows Armenia.

Portugal eased past Kazakhstan 3-0. Cristiano Ronaldo shook off an ankle knock, picked up at the weekend, with the second goal on the half hour.

Poland continue to improve after a slow start. A Radoslav Matusiak goal on 19 minutes handed the Poles all three points in Belgium.

Results: Finland 1 Armenia 0, Portugal 3 Kazakhstan 0, Belgium 0 Poland 1

Group D - Cyprus followed up their impressive performance against Ireland by holding the Germans to a 1-1 draw. One point was enough to send the Germans top of the group however - Chelsea's Michael Ballack scored the German goal.

The Republic of Ireland kept their faint qualification hopes alive with a resounding 5-0 thumping of San Marino. Robbie Keane bagged a hat-trick to take the Irish up to 4th spot.

Results: Cyprus 1 Germany 1, Republic of Ireland 5 San Marino 0

11/10/06 Group E - Clueless England crushed in Croatia - England suffered the first defeat of their Euro2008 qualifying campaign as Croatia ran out easy 2-0 winners in Zagreb. England lacked cohesion and ideas going forward with Wayne Rooney again looking out of sorts. There were also plenty of shaky moments at the back as England struggled against a well organised outfit on the pitch, and 60,000 screaming Croatian fans in the stands. Diminutive striker Da Eduardo's looping header gave Croatia a deserved lead on 61 minutes as Croatia turned the screw. Croatia's second had a touch of the ridiculous about it as Gary Neville's tame backpass bobbled over hapless Paul Robinson's swinging boot before trickling over the line.

Results: Croatia 2 England 0, Russia 2 Estonia 0, Andorra 0 Macedonia 3

Group B - Scotland brought back down to earth in Kiev - A strike on the hour from Olexander Kucher and a last minute Andrei Shevchenko penalty gave Ukraine a 2-0 victory in the Olympic Stadium. Scotland finished with ten men as Steven Pressley was given his marching orders for a professional foul 4 minutes from time.

Results: Ukraine 2 Scotland 0, Georgia 1 Italy 3,

7/10/06 Group E - Dull England held by Macedonia - England produced an unconvincing display at Old Trafford, playing out a dour 0-0 draw against Macedonia. To add to England's woes, Steven Gerrard picked up a yellow card and will miss Wednesday's game against Croatia.

Results: England 0 Macedonia 0, Russia 1 Israel 1, Croatia 7 Andorra 0

Group B - Scotland shock France at Hampden - Gary Caldwell's 67th minute strike gave the Scots a famous victory in their third Euro 2008 qualifier. A spirited rear guard performance from Walter Smith's charges puts Scotland firmly in the driving seat in Group B.

Results: Scotland 1 France 0, Faroe Islands 0 Lithuania 1, Italy 2 Ukraine 0

29/9/06 England squad announced for Euro 2008 qualifiers - Steve McClaren today named his England squad for the qualifying fixtures against Macedonia and Croatia. There is still no place for David Beckham despite injuries to Aaron Lennon and Owen Hargreaves. Scott Parker comes in to take the place of broken leg victim Hargreaves and Shaun Wright-Phillips is included.

Full squad - Robinson (Tottenham), Kirkland (Liverpool), Foster (Man Utd); Bridge (Chelsea), Brown (Man Utd), Carragher (Liverpool), A Cole (Arsenal), Ferdinand (Man Utd), G Neville (Man Utd), P Neville (Everton), Terry (capt, Chelsea), Carrick (Man Utd), Downing (Middlesbrough), Gerrard (Liverpool), Parker (Newcastle), Jenas (Tottenham), Lampard (Chelsea), King (Tottenham), Richardson (Man Utd), Wright-Phillips (Chelsea); Johnson (Everton), Rooney (Man Utd), Crouch (Liverpool), Defoe (Tottenham).

16/9/06 Owen Hargreaves suffers suspected broken leg - England's new midfield hero Owen Hargreaves has a suspected broken left fibula after a clash with Arminia Bielefeld's Thorben Marx in the 24th minute of Bayern Munich's 2-1 defeat in the Bundesliga. Bayern head coach Felix Magath said 'We think he may have a broken fibula. We will know more after an examination'.

It's a crushing blow for Hargreaves and England. The 25 year old has become one of the first names on the team sheet in Steve McClaren's new look England side and has been on top form since his inspirational display in the World Cup quarter final against Portugal.

Hargreaves will surely miss October's crucial Euro 2008 qualifiers against Macedonia and Croatia giving Steve McClaren the first selection headache of his short tenure. Get well soon Owen!

7/9/06 Spain may pull out of Euro 2008 - Spain may consider withdrawing from Euro 2008 after it was revealed that Gibraltar plan to apply for membership of UEFA. It is the second time Gibraltar have attempted to gain entry into European football's elite. The first time was in October 2001 when UEFA changed its entry requirements for independent states. UEFA turned down the application then, and Spain has repeatedly said they will not take part in any competitions with the British colony. Gibraltar's application will be too late for Euro 2008, but a Spain withdrawal - in protest at a possible granting of Gibraltar's wishes - cannot be counted out. The court for the arbitration of sport (CAS) has recommended that Gibraltar be admitted on a provisional basis at the next UEFA gathering in early October. Full story

6/9/06 Group E - England hold on to top spot with victory - England top Group E after a hard fought 1-0 victory against Macedonia in Skopje. On fire, ex robotic dancing specialist, Peter Crouch hit the net again with a fine finish just after the break.

Results: Macedonia 0 England 1, Russia 0 Croatia 0, Israel 4 Andorra 1

Group F - Sensational Northern Ireland shock Spain - Windsor Park erupted tonight after Northern Ireland's historic 3-2 victory. The Irish were 1-0 and 2-1 down but a hat-trick from Leeds striker David Healy - the last coming just 10 minutes from time - flattened the Spanish in Belfast.

Group A - Sneaky Portuguese held in Finland - 10 man Portugal stuttered at the start of their Euro 2008 qualifying campaign with a 1-1 draw in Helsinki.

Results: Finland 1 Portugal 1, Azerbaijan 1 Kazakhstan 1, Armenia 0 Belgium 1

England team for Macedonia - Steve McClaren makes just one change from the team that hammered Andorra. Rio Ferdinand recovers from a toe injury to take the place of Manchester United team-mate Wes Brown.

Full team - Robinson (Tottenham), P Neville (Everton), Ferdinand (Man Utd), Terry (capt, Chelsea), A Cole (Arsenal), Downing (Middlesbrough), Hargreaves (Bayern Munich), Gerrard (Liverpool), Lampard (Chelsea), Crouch (Liverpool), Defoe (Tottenham)

Results: England 5 Andorra 0, Estonia 0 Israel 1.

Group B - Scotland sweep aside the Faroe Islands - Scotland hammered the Faroe Islands 6-0 at Celtic Park in their first Euro 2008 qualifier.

Results: Scotland 6 Faroe Islands 0, Georgia 0 France 3, Italy 1 Lithuania 1

Group F - Northern Ireland hopes crushed - Optimism in the Northern Ireland camp during the build up to Euro 2008 qualifying was frozen solid in the first half as Iceland strolled to a comfortable 3-0 victory at Windsor park. Ex Chelsea striker Eidur Gudjohnsen completed the scoring on 37 minutes.

Group D - Late goal sinks Wales - A goal in the 89th minute from David Lafata condemned the Welsh to defeat in their Euro 2008 qualifying curtain raiser against the Czech Republic.
