X-Sender: giggs@tiac.net X-Mailer: Windows Eudora Pro Version 3.0 (32) Date: Mon, 15 Jun 1998 19:54:35 -0400 To: suggs@tiac.net From: Paul Rodes (by way of Red Devils List ) Subject: Agence France-Presse on Scholes (contains score) Scholes shines as England avoid trouble on the pitch by Niall Edworthy MARSEILLE, France, June 15 (AFP) - Paul Scholes justified his selection as England's new playmaker as Glenn Hoddle's side kicked off their World Cup campaign with a comfortable 2-0 win over Tunisia at the Stade Velodrome on Monday. The 23-year-old midfielder has taken over England's attacking midfield role after Paul Gascoigne was controversially dropped by Hoddle from his final squad. Gascoigne's omission, in the wake of newspaper allegations about his drinking habits and general life-style, led many to wonder whether England had a player capable of producing his creative edge. But Manchester United star Scholes laid those fears to rest with a sparkling performance that stood out from an otherwise ordinary England performance. Scholes, whose early football career was threatened by bad asthma, scored England's second -- a superb curling shot from 20 yards -- after captain Alan Shearer grabbed the only real chance to come his way to give England a first half lead. Hoddle said Scholes had fully justfied his place in the starting line-up, enthusing: "I was tremendously pleased for him. I thought he had a super game. He has great confidence in his own ability. "He doesn't stop running and the timing of his runs from deep is a real plus." Hoddle, who was upset that Gascoigne had not got himself in shape in time for France '98, added that Scholes's maturity and professionalism were qualities that he admires in players. "He is a modest, quiet lad who doesn't really like all the razzmattazz and the attention that his talent attracts," said Hoddle. "He prefers to let his boots do the talking and as a coach that's great for me." Scholes, who was a constant threat during the first half, admitted his goal was the best moment so far of his brief playing career. "I had two chances in the first half and I was very disappointed not to have scored but in the end it was brilliant to get one," he said. "It was a great pass from Incey (Paul Ince) and I was going to play it back to him but I miscontroled it so I just turned and hit it." Scholes said he was not surprised to have been included in the team but said he was happy to be compared to Gascoigne, England's most creative player for the last 10 years. "Glenn told me on Saturday and I was a bit nervous and had a few butterflies in the stomach as I came out, but once it starts you just get on with it. "I just play the way I know and if people want to compare me to Paul Gascoigne then I am very flattered. "This has been the highlight of my career so far to score a goal in the World Cup. The atmosphere with the fans was fantastic there were a lot more here than I thought there would be." England's official ticket allocation for the match was 8,000 but there were at least 20,000 spread around the magnificent Stade Velodrome, making a mockery of the organisers' plans to avoid black market sales. But there was no trouble during the match although there were the occasional and ominous chants of 'No Surrender to the IRA', indicating the presence of the hooligan element amid England's following. Violence, though, was erupting elsewhere in the city as England's ticketless fans clashed with local youths and the riot police. But Hoddle said his team would not be distracted by events outside the stadium. "I don't know the facts but the support inside the stadium was absolutley magnificent," he added. The England coach added that he was relieved to have come through a potentially tricky first match. "This was a tricky game for us," he said. "Once we drew Tunisia in the group I thought the worst time to face them would be in the first game in this heat. This was their World Cup final. "The way this World Cup is panning out, teams like Tunisia, the so-called smaller sides or the non-favourites, are causing the so-called bigger teams some problems." England captain Shearer took his only genuine chance of the game for his 19th international goal -- a powerful header from Graeme Le Saux's free-kick on the right. "Well, that will take the pressure off me for a day or two," he joked. "Scoring goals is my job. Other people create them, I put them in."
