Diary

Monday, 7 August 2000 - Kevin Keegan has criticised the £10 fee to watch England's World Cup qualifier against Finland on television. In an interview, he said that everyone should have a right to see the game. "I think it should be available to everybody - and I do feel that about all the major events." The FA have admitted they are powerless to prevent an England game from being shown on a pay-per-view channel for the first time. But Keegan said it was up to the Finnish FA to decide what to do with the match rights. The independent u>direct, whose sports and film services are supported by Sky Digital, are believed to have spent in the region of £1m to secure the live rights from the Finnish FA.

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

Saturday, 7 October 2000 - In the final match at Wembley Stadium before the bulldozers move in, England lose to Germany and in response, from the dressing room toilet, Kevin Keegan hands in his resignation. There are also several injuries reported, namely David Beckham's knee, Graeme Le Saux's calf, Tony Adam's back and Gary Neville's toe. Paul Ince also withdraws from the squad to be with his wife who is in labour with their child.

Sunday, 8 October 2000 - England, along with stand-in boss Howard Wilkinson, arrive at their Buckinghamshire headquarters still reeling from Keegan's resignation. Wilkinson appeals to those around him to rally around, as he brings in Brian Kidd into the coaching set-up.
Bobby Robson admits that if he is asked, he will return to assist England.

Monday, 9 October 2000 - Martin Keown is England's new captain taking the armband from his absent Arsenal colleague Tony Adams.

Tuesday, 10 October 2000 - The Football Association form a six-man think-tank to help select a new national coach who also must groom a successor.
