One tactical ploy which all these fancy continental teams do not seem to have used much is the good old British (and Irish) long throw so beloved of Stoke City. Is it something to do with the much-criticised Jabulani ball? Not according to Stoke City's Rory Delap, who said after testing it back home in Staffordshire: "I can throw this one just as far as the balls we use in the Premier League. It is a little bit slippier, but as long as I had my towels on hand to dry the ball I'd be fine with it." A shame, for many reasons, that his Ireland team were not at the tournament after they, er, handed a place to France.

Arsenal's manager Arsène Wenger will today tell his players not to become obsessed with Rory Delap's long throws or underestimate Stoke City's other qualities at the Britannia Stadium tomorrow. Last season Wenger's team were beaten there 2-1 with two goals from Delap's huge throws and in the FA Cup this season they were overpowered and lost 3-1. At home, however, they have beaten the more fragile Potters 4-1 and 2-0, and Wenger insists his players must stick to their footballing guns while respecting Stoke's improved ability.
