Diary

Friday, 28 May 1999 - Kevin Keegan has recalled Manchester United sensation Teddy Sheringham for the two Euro 2000 qualifiers next month in a widely expected move. Sheringham returns to the national squad of 22 for the first time since the World Cup in France last summer. His goals helped United complete their treble and the 31 year old was instrumental in raising United to their historic finish against Bayern Munich in the Nou Camp on Wednesday night.  All in all Keegan has included six players from the team hailed yesterday by 300,000 fans on an open top bus rude through the outskirts of Manchester.  The squad will train next week before meeting section leaders Sweden in a game the English cannot afford to lose. Sweden hold a 2-1 win over the English from last September and the game on June 5th is Keegan's first in charge since confirming a three year deal to take on the leadership of the national squad full time and leave Fulham. The same squad will travel to play Bulgaria in Sofia on June 8th.

Saturday, 5 June 1999 - England draw with Sweden 0-0.  Paul Scholes is sent-off early in the second half.  David Beckham was removed on a stretcher with an injury with 15 minutes to go after defender Martin Keown was also replaced with a pulled hamstring.  Graeme Le Saux was substituted at half-time suffering with a virus.

Tuesday, 8 June 1999 - Kevin Keegan has drafted in Kieron Dyer and Danny Mills.  Graeme Le Saux has pulled out of the squad after being unable to shake off his virus.  David Beckham and Martin Keown have both pulled out suffering with hamstring injuries.
