The World United Through Football
Group matches at France 98 played on Monday, 15th June.

Travel to England England vs Travel to England Tunisia in Marseilles (2:0).

Travel to Germany Germany vs Travel to USA United States in Paris (2:0).

Travel to Romania Romania vs Travel to Colombia Colombia in Lyon (1:0).

England vs Tunisia in Marseilles: (14:30)

The first corner was awarded to Tunisia.

Exceptional; the ball was sent thirty yards back upfield. Anything wrong with the box?

Baya took on Le Saux quite comfortably, and so do most number 8's each weekend in the Premiership. Why England fans think they have an exceptional squad is beyond me; and I am one too.

Sol Campbell played like a midfielder at times. If you watch the Spurs, then you are used to his play.

I think England missed kebab Gascoigne for the unpredictable. And that is what England were not; they were too predictable.

Alan Shearer headed in for England from a Le Saux free-kick, just before half-time. What was the Tunisian keeper doing? He was already diving for a direct kick; Hoddle was not on the pitch, he is only the coach.

Half-time: (1:0).

The second half was nothing spectacular, with David Seaman having an easy afternoon in goal for England. If he had gone off to the beach at Cassis, he wouldn't have been missed.

At last, lazy Sherringham was replaced by Michael Owen.

Paul Ince laid a ball to Scholes, Ince ran through, clearly offside, but he had nothing to do with further events. Scholes decided it himself.

England have three points, a clean sheet and a vital two goals.

Paul Scholes should have had a hat-trick, but I don't think it's coming home yet.

Final Score:
Travel to England England 2 - Travel to England Tunisia 0

Our Man of the Match:
Paul Scholes.

Romania vs Colombia in Lyon: (17:30)

Romania dominated the first half an hour; the closest chance falling to Moldovan.

Four minitues later, Mondragon made an excellent double save from Ilie and a follow up from Moldovan again.

On the stroke of half-time, Ilie beat two defenders in the area, and chipped the Columbian goalie.

Half-time: (1:0).

In the second half, Ricon let loose for Columbia, but it was wide.

Out of 14 shots in the game, Columbia only managed to get seven on target.

A rather disappointing match.

Final Score:
Travel to Romania Romania 1 - Travel to Colombia Colombia 0

Our Man of the Match:
Adrian Ilie.

Germany vs United States in Paris: (21:00)

Germany threatened first, through Oliver Bierhoff.

On ten minutes, Jürgen Klinsmann headed back a deep corner, for Andy Möller to nod in.

Half-time: (1:0).

We had to wait until the fiftieth minute of the second-half for a realistic American chance.

Fifteen minutes later, Klinsmann took an excellent cross from Bierhoff, on the chest, and calmly claimed Germany's second.

Brian Maisonneuve found space nine minutes from time, but all Kopke had to do was look at the ball.

Ramos also showed that he can strike the ball, now all he needs to do is get it between the sticks.

Not much for Americans to cheer about; a conservative win for the Germans.

Final Score:
Travel to Germany Germany 2 - Travel to USA United States 0

Our Man of the Match:
Oliver Bierhoff.
