Scotland hatch plan to stop Bale
bale
Assistant manager Mark McGhee says Scotland have a plan to deal with Gareth Bale when they face Wales in Glasgow on Friday.
Gordon Strachan's second in command is confident that the hosts can stop the winger and insists that they will carry their own threat as well.

"I've been watching a lot of Gareth Bale recently. We will have a plan to deal with him but we are the team and will exert our own pressure," McGhee told reporters.

"I've seen teams who have dealt with Bale's quality. I don't think we will be man-marking him.

Totti in Prandelli´s plans for Brazil
totti
Cesare Prandelli says he will not rule out recalling Francesco Totti to the Italy squad for World Cup 2014, if he can remain fit.
The Roma forward already has 58 caps for his country, but his national team coach is open to the idea of a recall - even though the player officially retired in 2007.

"If we qualify for the World Cup then I'll take a look at what shape he is in," the 55-year-old coach told reporters.

"He is proving to be in exceptional physical condition," Prandelli said.

Leighton Baines insists England must collect six points from their World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro.

With England in second place, two points behind Montenegro and three points ahead of Poland, who have a game in hand, Everton left-back Baines believes his team-mates must stay focussed in their bid to reach Brazil 2014.

"The first game is one that everyone expects us to win and is a game we must win," Baines told the ... Read more »

Georgia comes first, then Spain
deschamps
Didier Deschamps has warned his players not to think about Spain ahead of their World Cup 2014 qualifier against Georgia on Friday.
France, who sit second in Group I behind Spain, will take on Georgia on March 22 and the table-toppers just four days later.

And Deschamps is worried his players may be distracted by the prospect of facing Vicente Del Bosque's side, rather than focusing on the task at hand.

"We must focus our energy on the Georgia game to win. Though Spain is in their minds," the 44-year-old told reporters at a press conference.

Juventus aim to thwart Conte interest
conte
Juventus may insert a buyout clause into the contract of coach Antonio Conte after he revealed his discontent with football in Italy.
Conte's display of anger at his press conference after the 2-0 victory at Bologna on Saturday has put the club's board on high alert, with Chelsea and Real Madrid thought to be considering the former Juve midfielder as a possible answer to their coaching worries.

The 43-year-old, who had earlier been chastised by opposition coach Stefano Pioli for over-exuberant celebrations at the full-time whistle, used his media commitments as a platform to air his grievances with some of the ills in the Italian game at present.

Carlo Ancelotti was happy with David Beckham's performance in Paris Saint-Germain's 2-2 Ligue 1 draw against Saint-Etienne on Sunday.
The veteran midfielder, 37, featured for the full 90 minutes for the first time since his move to PSG in January, and Ancelotti feels Beckham's display was confirmation that he is still in fine shape physically.

"This is football," Ancelotti told reporters.

"The turning point was perhaps the goal that we conceded at the end of the first half. If we'd kept our 2-0 lead, the second half would have been much easier."

The pair were directly responsible for every goal scored by the Blaugrana, which maintained its seemingly unassailable 13 point lead at La Liga's summit.
Barcelona's indomitable Liga form continued with a 3-1 win against Rayo Vallecano at Camp Nou on Sunday.

Lionel Messi struck twice to extend his incredible scoring streak to 18 consecutive league games, but it was his understanding with David Villa that was the highlight of the match, with both players dispelling rumors of a rift to combine for all three of Barca's goals.

Villa got the ball rolling 25 minutes in by confidently slotting home a feed from Messi, who himself slid in the second five minutes before halftime after latching onto th ... Read more »

lescott
Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has been called up to the England squad for World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro.
Lescott was initially left out by Three Lions manager Roy Hodgson because of a lack of first-team action in Roberto Mancini's side.

But he has been named as a replacement for Tottenham counterpart Michael Dawson, who was substituted at half-time of Spurs' 1-0 defeat to Fulham on Sunday with a hamstring problem.

Spurs midfielder Aaron Lennon has also pulled out of the England squad due to injury.

Martin Jol praised his Fulham side for restricting Gareth Bale to his 'quietest game' during their 1-0 win over Tottenham on Sunday.
A goal from former Spurs striker Dimitar Berbatov in the second half was the difference between the sides as the hosts saw their push for Champions League football take a blow.

Bale saw a headed effort cleared off the line in the opening stages, but despite the early chance, Fulham managed to keep the Welsh international at bay.

"I think we kept it simple today with Bale and (Mousa) Dembele, it was probably the quietest gam ... Read more »
