FRANCE beat England 2-0 in an under-18 international in Boulogne yesterday with goals from Philippe De Azevedo and Antoine Sibierski.

THE playing field of the New York Giants American Football team will be two metres short of the standard length for a Fifa approved pitch when it is used during the 1994 World Cup finals. 'This is the most spectacular stadium in the world,' said Fifa's press officer Guido Tognoni. 'Not to play on it because it is one meter less on each side would have been a sin.'
