Horster tips Toon to complete Italian job

Last updated : 26 February 2003 By Martyn Elliott

Horster has ruled his team out of a Toon-style revival in the second phase and also believes that Barcelona have already as good as qualified.

"I don't think we can qualify from this group and I don't have any realistic dreams of progressing in the tournament," said Hörster.

"I think Barcelona will go through for certain, along with either Inter Milan or Newcastle. I think that the group will be decided next month when Newcastle go to Italy - they have already proved how strong they can be away from home so why shouldn't they have a chance in the San Siro?"

Of course we have to beat his team tonight for any of that to matter.
