Well with the match taking place this weekend its make or break time for england with a win or a draw enough to qualify...
Some good news..!
Pierluigi Collina will referee England's Euro 2004 qualifier in Turkey on Saturday.
The withdrawal through injury of Denmark's Kim Milton Nielsen means Collina will take control of the decider in Istanbul.
Fellow Italians Narcio Pisacreta and Marco Ivaldi will be Collina's assistants for the match, with Roberto Rosetti named by UEFA as the fourth
Collina has been something of a lucky mascot for England in the recent past.
The bald Italian took charge in Munich when they beat Germany 5-1 to set them on the road to qualification for the 2002 World Cup and he also
officiated in the group match against Argentina in the finals of that tournament when England won 1-0.
