England fans to see qualifier on Internet

ENGLAND fans will only be able to watch Saturday's World Cup qualifier against Ukraine on the Internet or in a cinema after the match failed to attract a television company, rights holder Kentaro said yesterday.

Setanta had signed a deal with Kentaro to broadcast the Group 6 match live but the TV company went into administration in June, leaving the match without a broadcaster. Fans who subscribe in advance will be charged 5 pounds (US$8) to watch the match in Dnipropetrovsk which Ukraine needs to win to maintain its hopes of qualifying for the 2010 World Cup. England has already clinched its place for the World Cup which will be held in South Africa.
