Kane Knocks Out Brave Denmark and Sends England into Euros final

England captain Harry Kane fired his side into their first European Championship final by slamming in the rebound to his saved penalty in extra-time, as Gareth Southgate's team eclipsed the manager's icons of 25 years ago with a hard-fought 2-1 win over brave Denmark. Southgate has carried the pain of his shoot-out penalty miss at Wembley since Euro 96 but his Three Lions wrote their own history on Wednesday night, setting up a Sunday showdown with Italy back at Wembley. It was far from straightforward, with Mikkel Damsgaard breaching England's previously watertight defence with the first direct free-kick goal of the tournament on 30 minutes after the hosts had made a fast start. But England forced an equaliser home through a Simon Kjaer own goal and while they could not get t...

Comeback Kings Man Utd Delay City Title with Win at Villa

Manchester United once again fought back from a goal down to beat Aston Villa 3-1 at Villa Park, meaning Manchester City must wait to be crowned Premier League champions. City still need three points themselves, or for United to drop three points, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team made it 31 points from losing positions, the most of any Premier League side. Villa took the lead midway through the first half as Bertrand Traore turned and produced a fine effort into the top corner (24), though questions will be asked of Victor Lindelof's defending. When can City win the league? If United lose to either Leicester (Tues) or Liverpool (Thurs), or drop points in both games, City will be crowned champions.
