After a difficult few days, England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson can now concentrate on Saturday's crucial match against Turkey...
England fly out to Turkey today to play the last match in their Euro 2004 qualifying programme and for Sven, the focus is now on the football.
"It has been a different build-up to this game, I'm afraid. We haven't started to talk about football yet, which is a little bit strange, I must say," said the England Head Coach.
"I am very happy to see that everything has been sorted out before the game and that from now we can focus 200 per cent on football.
"The players have showed with their support for Rio that they have created a strong and united group and I am sure you will see that as well on Saturday."
England need at least a point to win Group 7 and qualify for next summer's finals. Were they to lose to Turkey then they would have to go through a two-legged play-off next month.
Sven continued: "I am looking forward to the next two days and I hope we can work together and obtain the result we want in Turkey for England."
