A team hungry to win meets one desperate not to lose in the Euro 2000 final. France has reached today's clash in style, adding attacking prowess to the defensive stability that was the foundation of its World Cup triumph two years ago. But if any team can halt the French steamroller, it is the superbly organized, if not always attractive, Italians.

Paul Gascoigne's spectacular volley and goalkeeper David Seaman's penalty save helped England defeat Scotland, 2-0, in the European soccer championship Saturday. Alan Shearer also scored his second goal of the championship as England took a big step toward the quarterfinals. The Scots need a victory over the Swiss to have any hope of advancing to the quarterfinals. In Saturday's other game, Spain ended France's streak of 10 victories with a 1-1 tie.

Welsh soccer fans rampaged through a seaside suburb early Friday, fighting Greek fans and damaging three taverns before police arrested 14 of them, authorities said.

In the wake of the decision to choose Germany for the 2006 World Cup over South Africa, the world has once again proven that no matter how hard people try, the continent of Africa will never be on equal footing with the rest of the world. If even the recommendation of FIFA President Sepp Blatter was not enough to award South Africa, even with a truly impressive bid put together for the Cup, it clearly indicates that there is a great lack of respect for South Africa and all Africans in general.
