Ex-Fulham boss Magath wants an English job

Former Fulham manager Felix Magath plans to stay in England and wait for the right offer to come along.

Magath's reputation took a knock during a troubled seven-month stint in the Cottagers' hotseat, but he insists he still has something to give - and that his future lies in England.

"I'm going to stay in England and I will see what comes," said the 61-year-old, who left Craven Cottage a week ago, with the team at the foot of the Sky Bet Championship. "I still believe my methods can still help at some clubs."

He added: "I certainly don't doubt myself."

Magath previously led Bayern Munich to back-to-back Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal doubles, before arguably topping both by guiding an unfancied Wolfsburg to their first ever Bundesliga title in 2009.

His most recent success was a second-place finish with Schalke in 2010, but a return to Wolfsburg did not work out and he oversaw Fulham's relegation from the Premier League last season.

Irish U-17s beat Faroes

IRELAND'S Under-17 side beat the Faroe Islands 4-2 in last night's European U-17 Championships qualifying group game at Eamonn Deacy Park, Galway.

Corey O'Keeffe opened Ireland's account after just seven minutes when he pounced on a free-kick from Jake Doyle-Hayes to fire home.

Josh Barrett then doubled Ireland's lead in the 35th minute with a clinical chip after a pass from Trevor Clarke.

However, the Faroes pulled a goal back just after half-time through Paeter Petersen, but Steven Kinsella restored Ireland's two-goal advantage in the 68th minte.

But that lead last just minute as the Faroes replied through David Muller, but Clarke headed home Ireland's fourth in the 81st minute.
