Diary

Thursday, 16 March 2000 - England's 2002 World Cup qualifying match against Germany on 7 October will be held at Wembley Stadium. The Football Association has confirmed that stadium redevelopment will be delayed three weeks so the clash can be the last game played at the venue. Kevin Keegan said: "When all the options are considered, it has to be right to give the maximum number of fans the chance to see this massive game. Until recently, Wembley didn't appear to be available. Now it is, and I know it will be a wonderful atmosphere." Other venues, such as Old Trafford and St James' Park, had been considered to stage the qualifying game. But an FA statement on Thursday said: "The closure of the stadium has been delayed by three weeks to enable the match to act as the finale in the present Wembley's 77-year history. The bulldozers are expected to move in to demolish the stadium soon afterwards. The decision follows talks involving the England coach Kevin Keegan as well as Wembley and the FA. The FA, the stadium's new owners, had considered taking the game elsewhere in the country with Wembley expected to close in September. But before the World Cup draw was made, Germany were considered the most fitting opponents for the final match at Wembley, not least because of the famous World Cup final involving the two countries back in 1966. Once they were paired together again at the draw in Tokyo last December, it had been assumed that other opponents would have to be found for the finale because of the timetable."

Thursday, 21 September 2000 - It is confirmed by the Football Association that England will wear their red jerseys against Germany next month. It will be the first time that the red has been worn at Wembley against Germany since the 1966 World Cup Final. It comes at the request of Kevin Keegan.

Thursday, 28 September 2000
- Kevin Keegan names his 27-man squad for the World Cup preliminary matches against Germany and Finland next month.
