Moore Header Earns Draw for Wales in Euro 2020 Opener

Kieffer Moore's second-half header secured a hard-fought point for Wales in their Euro 2020 opener as they drew 1-1 with Switzerland in Baku. The Cardiff City forward had already had the best chance of the first half - forcing an acrobatic save from Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer - but Wales rode the wave of Switzerland pressure to go in level at the break. Shortly after the restart, the Swiss took advantage of their numerous set-pieces as Breel Embolo nodded home from Xherdan Shaqiri's corner. But Wales began to fashion chances and they scored in somewhat similar fashion as Joe Morrell sent in a cross after a short corner and an inexplicably unmarked Moore glanced a header past Sommer. There was late drama in Azerbaijan too as VAR ruled out Mario Gavranovic's late ...

Euro 2020: Mancini Reacts as Italy open with 3-0 win Over Turkey

  Italy manager, Roberto Mancini, has described their 3-0 win over Turkey as “an important win”. The Azzurris opened the Euro 2020 with a big-margin victory on Friday night. Merih Demiral’s own goal gave Mancini’s men the lead, before Ciro Immobile and Lorenzo Insigne added late goals. However, Mancini warned there is a long road to go until a possible Wembley final. “It was important to start well in Rome and I think it is a satisfaction for the public and for Italians. “It was a beautiful evening, I hope there are many others, but there are still six more for Wembley. “We played a good match, even in the first half without being able to score. A great team. There was a lot of help from the crowd,” Mancini said after the match played at a Stadio Olimpico....

England boss Southgate took risk selecting Liverpool captain Henderson

Former England boss Glenn Hoddle thinks Gareth Southgate has taken a risk by selecting Jordan Henderson for the Euros.

Bologna vs Juventus: Why I Benched Cristiano Ronaldo in Serie A Final day – Pirlo

Goals from Federico Chiesa, Adrien Rabiot and Alvaro Morata (2) ensured Pirlo’s men defeated Bologna at Renato Dall’Ara.
