Group 8's Fixtures Completes Europe's World Cup 2002 Schedule
With the help of Fifa, the stalled Group 8 World Cup Cup Qualifying fixtures have finally been decided. Rumours have been suggesting that the Hungarian Football Association had been resolute in its refusal of any fixture scheduled placed before them by the other Group 8 teams; Georgia, Italy, Lithuania and Romania. However Fifa stepped in and have produced a list fixture list which all the involved FA's have agreed will be binding. This means that each of the nine groups competing in the Uefa zone's World Cup Qualifiers have been announced. A total of 230 fixtures will be played between the end of August 2000 and mid October 2001, all of which are available in Sportcal.com's online calendar.
