Whilst England gave themselves a great chance of progressing to the knockout round with a very decent comeback win against Slovakia in game two on Monday evening, this is England, they are against the hosts, and they never make it easy for themselves…

One of the real Under-21s games this Euros that caught our eye was this one, as Portugal and Spain battle it out in Group B in one of the oldest footballing rivalries, known as the Iberian War.

Who says Germans don’t take tournament football seriously? Known for their ruthlessness and efficiency, Joachim Lowe has opted for a more experimental squad for the Confederations Cup, but despite that, there will be a number of high profile names playing for them against Australia on Monday afternoon.

The Confederations Cup is just round the corner once again as eight sides do battle in Russia, in a sort of warm up for next year’s World Cup to be hosted in the same country, as we all know. And these teams aren’t the likes of San Marino and Kazakhstan. The tournament will definitely be worth watching.

Just when we thought the football season was definitely over for another month or two, up pops the Under-21s Euros and straight from the off, there’s English interest as the FA and England supporters hope the U21s replicate the success of the U20s, who won the U20s World Cup at the weekend.

Fresh from a last gasp draw in Scotland at the weekend, England will now take the Eurostar as they make a trip to France to tackle Didier Deschamps’ strong side at the Stade de France. Surely England must improve against a team who, let’s face it, should be stronger than the Scots.

It's tough being the intern... "Hey, new boy, Scotland and England butt heads again tomorrow. Knock-up a quick piece detailing an all-time Scotland/England XI, cheers!"

Football | Saturday's World Cup Qualifiers | Previews and Tips

The auld enemy clash as Scotland host England in the oldest International fixture in the book. No love will be lost, no quarter asked, nor given, as Gareth Southgate's men travel north in the hope of maintaining England's incredible run of success in qualifying for the big tournaments.

The football season has ended and we’re wandering around on Saturdays following the wife round town, kicking our heels and waiting for the new season to begin. But fear not, the international weekend is just round the corner and whether you like national fixtures or not, ultimately, football is football.

Football | Champions League Final Match Preview & Betting Tips

Two domestic Champions meet in Cardiff on Saturday night as the curtain comes down on the Champions League in the Welsh capital. We’ve seen thrills and spills, Monaco’s great run, which will ultimately cost them to lose 49 of their great young players, and who can forget that bonkers 8-4 game between Dortmund and Legia Warsaw in the group stage back in November last year? Anyway, it comes down to this!

Football | Huddersfield v Reading | Preview and Tips

The richest game in football. Win, and it's ascension to the promised land. Lose, and it's... well, we won't talk about that.

With both Carlisle United and Luton Town taken care of respectively, Exeter City and Blackpool make the long trips from Devon and Lancashire in a bid to be in League One by Saturday night.

The FA Cup Final is firmly on the horizon now and despite many believing the magic is lost and some Premier League clubs disrespect the competition, one big hitter and Arsenal will take to the turf for the showcase finale, which, we’re delighted to say, is now at the end of the campaign rather than a few games prior to the end of the season.

Football | League Two Play-Off Semi-Finals | Match Previews & Betting Tips

It was raining goals in the two first legs in the League Two play-off semi-finals and with Wembley on the horizon and the fine line of success of failure even closer to the eye, it's a case of winner takes all in both ties as the two northern sides make the long trips sout

The main information you need, of course, is that away goals do not count in the play-offs. Let's just get that straight before Slavisa Jokanovic's Fulham put everyone behind the ball in a Jose Mourinho-esque park the bus tactic. The lack of any away goal advantage makes the second legs even more intriguing.

Football | Tottenham v Man United | Betting and Preview

Tears. Tantrums. Tragedy. Thrills. Talent. Triumphs.  White Hart Lane has seen it all down the years, and it's a fitting tribute to one of London's iconic sporting venues that the last match to be played at The Lane is Manchester United, a blockbuster fixture to bring the curtain down on 118 years of sporting drama at White Hart Lane.

It’s time to shape up or ship out for two sides in the couple of Europa League semi-finals on the horizon to be played on Thursday evening. Celta need to score without reply to level things up, whilst Lyon will be hoping the big man upstairs is looking down on them. They need three to progress to the Final – and with Alexandre Lacazette leading the line, would you bet against them getting the job done?

Two ties that are potentially out of reach for both Monaco and Atletico Madrid, it will need two cracking results if the underdog duo are to fight it out in the Final in Cardiff later this month. Both don’t have a goal to show for their first leg efforts, but this is the Champions League, this is knockout time and an early goal could really change things.

Both ties are still all to play for in the Sky bet League One play-offs as four sides bid to make it into the final at Wembley Stadium later in the month. It will be tense, players will be celebrating and players will be heartbroken later on Sunday, but who? Read on to work it out for yourself!
