Keegan ends England feud
Robbie Fowler: Made up with Graeme Le Saux
England boss Kevin Keegan has declared that the running feud between Robbie Fowler and Graeme Le Saux is over, after brokering a peace meeting between the two internationals.
Keegan revealed that Fowler and Le Saux had shaken hands within minutes of arriving at the team hotel on Sunday and had made it clear to him there was no personal animosity between them.
The ex-Liverpool and England striker had earlier said he would be ordering them to make peace following their clash at Stamford Bridge on February 27 when Le Saux elbowed Fowler in the back of the head after allegedly being provoked by taunts from the centre forward.
Keegan said: "I'm delighted that Graeme and Robbie were able to shake hands even before I asked them to come to our meeting.
"It was important to them to be able to do so in private rather than publicly.
"I'm satisfied our preparations for such an important game will not be disrupted either as a team or with them as individuals by what may have happened in the past - that's all that matters.
"As far as I'm concerned the issue is now over and done with."
