Friendly results don't tell us much from yesterday.

Germany 6 Austria 2 (Another confidence booster for the Irish who one feels have got above their station, especially when they criticise Englands chances).

France 1 Belgium 2 (France World Beaters?)

Czech Rep 1 Italy 0 (Ditto?)

Nigeria 1 Jamaica 0 (match marred by players fighting at final whistle - what did I say about discipline. Oh and it was called the Unity Trophy).


Observer reckons Amir Karic will play left midfield in Slovenias strongest possible line up. Did we miss something?

Belgium's winner was a last minute volley :D From the "bionic" Wilmots.

England play on thursday vs South Korea, midday kick off i think. Would be a good chance to see how England fare on the "slow" grass.

Whatever time in Korea - apparently it's a hell of a lot cooler than Japan will be.

ARGH! no surprise i got confused, this is what the TV paper i have says...

"Tuesday 21st May, Sky Sports 1, 11:00, International Football Special. LIVE South Korea vs England: England prepare for the World Cup in the searing heat of Seogwipo as they take on South Korea. Kick off at 11:30pm"

Um, isn't Korea 9 hours ahead? So, if as that sky guide says, England kick off at 1130 pm GMT, then they'd be kicking off at 730 in the morning Korean time...

The fa website says that the kick off is 7pm Korean time... which would make it 11am here. But having checked at the bookies, they're taking bets up to 1130am on Tuesday, which makes me think that the kick off is 1130am on tuesday.

USA got beaten by Holland this evening, 2-0. In all fairness, the US matched Holland for much of the game...but just couldn't finish off their chances.

The Observer special has more than a few confused positions.. mostly putting people on the wrong side. They also think the longest serving Irish player is Niall Queen. But there are some interesting profiles of up and coming players in it.. Izmailov as the player to watch from Russia apparently and Morrison is featured too.
