A World Cup qualifier between Slovakia and the Czech Republic has been postponed because two Czech players are involved in the Uefa Cup final with the German club Schalke. The European group six World Cup qualifier and the second leg of the Uefa Cup final between Schalke and Internazionale are both scheduled for 21 May. A rearranged date has yet to be set.

Dave Savage, the Millwall midfielder, has been added to the Republic of Ireland squad for the group eight World Cup qualifying tie against Liechtenstein in Dublin on 21 May. The 23-year-old Savage won the last of his five caps in a 3-0 victory over Bolivia at the Giant Stadium, New Jersey two years ago. In preparation for the Lansdowne Road international, Mick McCarthy is likely to give Savage a run-out in the Pat Bonner testimonial between Ireland and Celtic on Sunday. Savage is a replacement for the Sunderland striker Niall Quinn who enters hospital this week for a scan on a knee injury.
