Taylor Face-To-Face With Mackem Le Tallec

Last updated : 14 October 2005 By Footy Mad - Editor
Steven Taylor and Mackem ... Anthony Le Tallec ... look set to go head-to-head next month to decide whether England or France play in next summer's Uefa Under-21 Championships.
England are paired with France, and as well as Le Tallec, currently on a season-long loan at Sunderland, the French squad also includes promising Arsenal full-back Gael Clichy and Liverpool striker Florent Sinama Pongolle.
Both Le Tallec and Taylor have been in goalscoring form for their countries this week. Striker Le Tallec notched a hat-trick against Switzerland last Saturday and another from the bench against Cyprus on Tuesday. Taylor scored twice in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Poland to take his tally for the Under-21s to three this season.
England will play the Group Four winners at home first, with the opening leg on November 11 and the return four days later.
