Aidy Boothroyd urges England to move on from late France defeat

Boss Aidy Boothroyd has told his England Under-21s to pick themselves up after their heartbreaking late Euro 2019 loss to France. Aaron Wan-Bissaka‘s injury-time own goal – when he sliced in despite Dean Henderson coming to gather the ball – condemned the 10-man Young Lions to an opening 2-1 defeat in Group C. Jonathan Ikone’s 89th-minute leveller had cancelled out Phil Foden‘s sensational second-half solo strike in Cesena. England suffered defeat to France following a late own goal (Nick Potts/PA) Henderson earlier saved Moussa Dembele’s first-half penalty but the game turned after Hamza Choudhury was sent off for an awful tackle on Lille’s Jonathan Bamba just after the hour. Houssem Aouar’s resulting penalty hit the post but England caved to late press...

Result: France launch late turnaround to beat England

Aaron Wan-Bissaka‘s injury-time own goal sunk the 10-man England Under-21s as France – who missed two penalties – scored twice at the death to snatch victory at Euro 2019. The Crystal Palace defender sliced into his own net to break the Young Lions’ hearts with a 2-1 Group C defeat in Cesena. Phil Foden‘s superb run and finish early in the second half opened the scoring but, after Hamza Choudhury was sent off, Jonathan Ikone struck an 89th-minute leveller before Wan-Bissaka turned the ball past Dean Henderson. ⏰ RESULT ⏰ 😮🇫🇷 Ikoné grabs late France leveller😱🇫🇷 Wan-Bissaka own goal gives France win 🤔 Who impressed you?#U21EURO #ENGFRA — UEFA U21 EURO (@UEFAUnder21) June 18, 2019 The goalkeeper had saved Moussa Dembele‘s first-half penalty and Houssem Aouar then hit t...

Manchester United make late bid for Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann?

Manchester United reportedly remain interested in signing Antoine Griezmann, despite claims that the Atletico Madrid forward will join Barcelona. Manchester United reportedly intend on making a late offer for Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann. The France international has already announced that he will leave the Spanish side this summer, leading to strong speculation regarding a switch to Barcelona. Griezmann insists that he may not play in La Liga next season, a claim which has dismissed by chief executive Miguel Angel Gil Marin who feels that the player will move to Camp Nou. Nevertheless, The Sun says that United are ready to remain in the hunt for the 28-year-old’s signature by lodging a bid in the region of £95m. That fee would fall short of Griezmann’s €120m (£106...

Justin Edinburgh: Emotional Orient players lay dugout tributes to late ‘gaffer’

Justin Edinburgh was hailed as “more than a manager” by Leyton Orient captain Jobi McAnuff as players and fans assembled at the club’s stadium to remember the late boss. McAnuff and Orient goalkeeper Dean Brill were clearly emotional as they laid down team shirts in the home dugout bearing handwritten messages for the former Tottenham defender, whose death at the age of 49 following a cardiac arrest was announced on Saturday. Speaking by the pitch where he and Edinburgh had celebrated promotion to the Football League just weeks before, McAnuff said: “Football aside, Justin was a hugely positive man, loved his family. Every day he came in he had that lust for life, a real zest about him, a real willingness to enjoy himself. Leyton Orient captain Jobi McAnuff and goalkeeper Dean Brill after ...

Result: Substitute Burke is Scotland’s late hero with last gasp winner over Cyprus

Substitute Oliver Burke was the late hero as Steve Clarke’s Scotland tenure began with a nervy 2-1 win over Cyprus at Hampden Park. The pressure was already on the home side after losing 3-0 to Kazakhstan in their opening 2020 European Championship qualifier in Astana opener before beating San Marino 2-0 away in the second of their first double-header, which proved insufficient for Alex McLeish to keep his job. The goalless first-half under the new head coach was not the blood and thunder often required by the Tartan Army who had to exercise patience. “Oh Andy, Andy…”@andrewrobertso5 loves a goal from outside the box for Scotland. ⚽ Lithuania 2017⚽ Cyprus 2019pic.twitter.com/s1tlTA8nv1 — Scotland National Team (@ScotlandNT) June 8, 2019 Skipper Andy Robertson, who celebrated Li...

Result: Shane Duffy’s late header snatches draw for Republic of Ireland at Denmark

Shane Duffy left Denmark cursing the Republic of Ireland once again as he headed home a late equaliser to snatch a 1-1 Euro 2020 qualifier draw in Copenhagen. Ireland looked to be heading for a first defeat in the competition after substitute Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg had given the Danes the lead just four minutes after coming off the bench, but Duffy’s 85th-minute bullet header, his third international goal, was enough to claim a point at the Telia Parken Stadium and preserve his side’s unbeaten start to their Group D campaign. The draw is the fourth in five meetings between the sides in the last 19 months and while Republic boss Mick McCarthy will be delighted with his return from a battling performance in Copenhagen, opposite number Age Hareide was left kicking himself. Seven points from th...

Ben Davies receives late call-up to Wales squad for Euro qualifiers

Tottenham defender Ben Davies has joined up with the Wales squad after originally being ruled out of Euro 2020 qualifiers against Croatia and Hungary. Wales manager Ryan Giggs left Davies out of his squad for the two games last week, saying the left-back had been troubled by a groin issue throughout the season. It had been expected the 26-year-old would undergo surgery after Spurs’ involvement in the Champions League final against Liverpool on Saturday to correct the problem. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿DIWEDDARIAD CARFAN | SQUAD UPDATE🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 Ben Davies has met up with the squad this morning after his treatment has been postponed 👍 Croeso i’r camp Ben!#YWalGoch #TheRedWall pic.twitter.com/TeCbdPzoAD — Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (@Cymru) June 4, 2019 But a Football Association of Wales statement on Tuesday morn...

Result: Charlton in charge despite Doncaster’s late strike

Two quickfire first-half goals put Charlton in command of their League One play-off semi-final against Doncaster as they won the first leg 2-1. Lyle Taylor and Joe Aribo both netted in the space of three minutes to ensure the visitors quashed a bright start by hosts Doncaster. Lee Bowyer’s side looked to be taking a healthy advantage back to The Valley until Matty Blair grabbed a late goal back for Doncaster, giving them hope for Friday night’s second leg. Prior to the Charlton goals it had been a energetic and competitive affair, with Doncaster looking the more threatening over the opening half-hour. The game was played at an electric pace, with both sides determined to press high and hard from the very start. But Charlton’s comfortable lead changed the complexion of the contest, with the...

Result: Padraig Amond helps Newport to late draw

Padraig Amond proved Newport’s hero again as Mansfield were denied a Sky Bet League Two play-off semi-final advantage at Rodney Parade. Mansfield had led from the 12th minute through CJ Hamilton and looked like taking a crucial lead into Sunday’s second leg at their One Call Stadium home. But County substitute Ade Azeez was upended by Stags goalkeeper Conrad Logan seven minutes from time and Amond, who scored the FA Cup winner against Leicester from the penalty spot in January, equalised to make it 1-1. It was success at the second attempt as Logan pushed out Amond’s spot-kick, the Irishman first to the rebound to score his 23rd goal of the season. Newport had squeezed into the play-offs when Jamille Matt levelled three minutes from time in the final game at Morecambe on ...

Thomas Frank pays tribute to late director Robert Rowan

Brentford manager Thomas Frank spoke about the legacy of the club’s late technical director Robert Rowan following the season-ending 3-0 win over Preston. Rowan, who died in November at the age of 28, had won plaudits across the footballing world for his attention to detail and ability to develop young players. Last Friday players from Brentford’s B team who had featured for the senior side this season received a commemorative shirt in front of an honours board named after Rowan at the club’s training ground. Graduates Luka Racic, Jaakko Oksanen and Marcus Forss all played in the comfortable Sky Bet Championship defeat of the Lilywhites, with the latter coming off the bench to round off the scoring with an impressive strike after goals by Ezri Konsa and Neal Maupay. For F...

Result: Late Hamilton win condemns Dundee to relegation

Tony Andreu’s late penalty consigned Dundee to relegation and put Hamilton firmly in the driving seat to avoid a play-off. The hosts looked like they might at least delay the inevitable drop after Motherwell took the lead against St Mirren but a controversial spot-kick award from referee Nick Walsh allowed Andreu to net the only goal in the 83rd minute. Ryan McGowan appeared to get the ball as he slid in on Hamilton substitute Mickel Miller but Walsh thought otherwise. There were surprisingly few complaints from the home side but there was an air of resignation around Dens Park even before kick-off. The game only came to life after the break but the visitors created the better chances in both halves and their victory took them four points clear of St Mirren, who levelled with the las...
