England's potential Euro 2008 demise could have a welcome spin-off for
Manchester United fans in South Africa next summer.

It has been confirmed United will compete in the annual Vodacom Challenge, as
they did two years ago, which will feature matches against the Kaizer Chiefs and,
in all probability, Orlando Pirates at the end of July.

It will be a useful build-up, not only to the new season but South Africa's World
Cup planning.

However, on their last visit, the Red Devils were without most of their senior stars
who were still recovering from their World Cup exertions.

A similar situation was expected this time around too. But, with England on the
brink of elimination in the European Championship qualifiers, it could be that
Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand and Gary Neville will be among the senior players
at Ferguson's disposal for the trip, which is expected to last 10 days.
