A shame that some commentators chose to use the admirable Help for Heroes rugby union charity match at Twickenham as a tool to bash football. "If only greedy football could put on such a show" was a headline in one newspaper. Actually it did, all of three weeks ago. Soccer Aid, at Wembley, in which an England team coached by Harry Redknapp played a Rest of the World side, raised over £1 million for Unicef, to add to the £2.6m from an even bigger event in 2006. Last season's 200 community visits by leading players under the Creating Chances scheme included Owen Hargreaves working as a tea-boy in a Manchester hospital, Jonathan Woodgate washing hair in a Teesside hospice and Michael Johnson learning sign language for a basketball session at the Royal School for the Deaf. The Premier League and their clubs may have a lot to answer for, but ploughing £122m last year into community initiatives is one of football's prouder achievements.

Fabio Capello began the international season in upbeat fashion last night by declaring that Spain, the European champions, may be the best team in the world but that England can beat them. They will not have the chance to prove it for some time, but England followers still suffering from the shock of missing Euro 2008 will settle for defeating two other teams who were present last summer: the Czech Republic, who visit Wembley in a friendly on Wednesday, and Slaven Bilic's Croatia, where Capello takes his troops in September.

May 26 1999. A date inscribed across the mind of every Manchester United player as the one to aspire to. Every player, that is, except Owen Hargreaves, for whom that night in the Nou Camp conjures memories of him “screaming his head off” in his Bayern Munich tracksuit, then wondering quite how the club he was making his way with had managed to throw away a Champions League final.
