France and Croatia are competing in Group B with Switzerland and England. AFP PHOTO ADRIAN DENNIS Croatian coach Otto Baric praised his side's showing in holding France to a 2-2 draw and said his side would have won had it not been for two refereeing errors. "I am very satisfied with how we played against one of the strongest teams in Europe," said Baric, who criticised Danish referee Kim Milton Nielsen for an apparent handball by French striker David Trezeguet in scoring the final goal. "It is hard to talk about the referee, especially as the coach of one of the 'outsider' teams," said Baric.

Extractions: ROME (AP) Captain-playmaker Francesco Totti converted a penalty kick and scored another goal with a delightful lob as AS Roma rolled past lowly Empoli 2-0 on Saturday to consolidate its lead in the Italian league ahead of the Christmas break. Roma's 11th win of the season stretched its unbeaten streak of 14 matches and lifted the club to 36 points, six clear of AC Milan and seven more than defending champion Juventus, which play their 14th round matches on Sunday. While taking on Udinese at San Siro on Sunday, European champion AC Milan must also make up a match with Siena it could not play last Sunday when it was in Japan for the Intercontinental Cup final with Boca Juniors. Juventus is at Lecce. Totti, who's expected to be Italy's key player at the 2004 European Championship finals in Portugal, converted a penalty in the 23rd minute after Norwegian striker John Carew was fouled deep in the area by Empoli defender Francesco Pratali. The 27-year-old Italian star then carried Roman and also rival fans away at Empoli's Carlo Castellani stadium in first-half injury time with a spectacular lob from an angled position that caught goalkeeper Luca Bucci out of position, far from his net.

Other Sport Azurri not so blue ITALY PROFILE: With a side boasting three of the best defenders in the world, Italys solid foundations will give a platform from which to build success, writes Paul Doyle After seeing the draw, the bookies immediately installed Italy as second-favourites and its true that elimination from a group including Croaita, Ecuador, and Mexico would leave the Azzuri feeling very blue indeed. Everyone knows Italys greatest strength: Alessandro Nesta, Fabio Cannavaro, and Paolo Maldinii are three of the best defenders in the world, and Gianluigi Buffon and Francesco Toldo two of the finest goalkeepers. Most of Italys midfield is defensive-minded too. Romas Damiano Tommassi and Gianluca Zambrotta of Juventus are even-tempered types who tend to stand firm rather than rage forward. The same can be said of Giuseppe Pancaro and even Demetrio Albertini, so the main thrust forwards comes from Francesco Coco, when selected, or, of course, Francesco Totti (above).

Other Sport EURO 2004 Italy Coach: Giovanni Trapattoni Giovanni Trapattoni is the most successful Italian club coach of the modern era but it is the Euro 2004 finals that will deliver the verdict on his ability as national team boss. Now Trapattoni has a chance to put the memory of the World Cup behind him and prove he can get the very best out of a squad which, with Alessandro Del Piero, Francesco Totti and Christian Vieri, contains some of the best attacking talent in the game. Key Players Name Christian Vieri (Inter Milan) DOB Position Striker Caps Goals With his permanent scowl, frequent refusal to celebrate goals and constant frustration at his team Inter Milan's limitations, Christian Vieri does not appear to be a man who enjoys his club football. It is a different story though when he pulls on the blue shirt for Italy. Born in Bologna but raised in Australia, and the son of a former Serie A striker, Vieri likes the game to be kept simple. Off the field he tires of talk of tactics and barely conceals his contempt for the Italian media. In action he relishes the basics being right an accurate cross to his head or a ball over the top to chase. In 39 appearances for his country Vieri has scored 22 goals, an impressive average at the highest level.
