Camacho has confessed leaving out Morientes was a serious mistake and he wouldn't have done it, had he had the chance again. Well, at least that's something and I expect to see good 'ol Mori in the Spain shirt come September! HALA ESPAÑA!!!
I know, he's an arrogant bastard! I mean he scored 2 goals from penalties and the rest cam against arguably the worst defenses in the whole tournament - Slovenia and Yugoslavia. think we were very fortunate to get that many goals, especially Alfonso! But I'm glad he admitted it. And I got the info from DailySoccer
Euro2000-''I made a mistake with Morientes,'' says Camacho
MADRID, June 28 (Reuters) - Spanish coach Jose Antonio Camacho, who is still having to explain to the nation his team's exit from Euro 2000, said on Wednesday he made a mistake leaving out Fernando Morientes.
Morientes, one of Real Madrid's goalscorers in their 3-0 Champions League final triumph over Valencia, was controversially absent from Camacho's 22-man squad.
The 24-year-old striker had played regularly during Spain's Euro 2000 qualifying campaign.
``I made a mistake with Morientes. I accept that. But we did score seven goals...and that's not so bad,'' Camacho told Spanish sports daily Marca.
