Heartbreak for England as Spain score late to win Euro 2024 final | UK News

England suffered late heartbreak in Berlin after Spain scored in the final minutes to beat the Three Lions 2-1 and win Euro 2024.

It is the second Euros final England have lost in a row after they were beaten by Italy in the final of Euro 2020, played at Wembley Stadium in July 2021 – delayed by the pandemic.

Harry Kane, the captain, said it was a “huge disappointment” and “as painful as it can be”.

“We’re all just hurting,” Kane said, adding that it had been a “tough tournament” during which the England squad “had to show a lot of resilience”.

But he said they did “really well” to get back into the match when Cole Palmer scored a long-range equaliser and had a “big moment at the end when they [Spain] cleared off the line”.

Regarding the future of Gareth Southgate, Kane said: “We love the manager, but it’s his decision.”

Prince William, who was in the stadium, said: “This time it just wasn’t meant to be,” adding on social media: “We’re all still so proud of you.”

King Charles told the England team to “hold your heads high”.

Reaching the final was a “really great achievement in itself”, the monarch said, and “one that brings with it the pride of a nation which will continue to roar for the Three Lions”.

After a tense opening 45 minutes in which both teams struggled to find their rhythm, Spain raced out of the blocks after half-time.

They made the breakthrough just over a minute into the second half, with Lamine Yamal darting inside and passing the ball to Nico Williams on the left.

The winger, who had looked to be Spain’s biggest threat in the first half, placed the ball low and firm in the far corner of the England net.

Not long after that, Dani Olmo had a chance for Spain, but he was slightly off-balance as he scuffed a shot past the far post from 15 yards.

But Gareth Southgate’s side were not yet beaten.

On the 73rd minute, substitute Cole Palmer hit an exquisite long-range shot into the far left-hand corner of the Spain net, levelling things up with 17 minutes to go.

But Mikel Oyarzabal broke England hearts with a goal in the 86th minute, slotting home after a perfectly-timed cross from Marc Cucurella.

Gareth Southgate wants to win Euro 2024 ‘so much it hurts’ | UK News

Gareth Southgate has said he wants to lead England to victory against Spain in the Euro 2024 final “so much it hurts”.

The men’s team are through to just a third ever major final – just three years after losing out on being crowned kings of the continent after defeat to Italy in a penalty shootout.

Few know the highs and lows that come with representing England better than Southgate, who saw his penalty saved in the Euro 96 semi-final shootout loss to Germany.

“As a player and an athlete, you view those failures in a different sort of way,” he said.

“As a coach, manager, leader, you recognise what you’re doing well,” he added.

“Had we gone out in the first knockout round here, I know I’ve managed this period better than I did in Russia (at the 2018 World Cup), but that wouldn’t be how it was viewed and it would sound like nonsense to the man in the street.

“I completely understand that, but I know the job now and I’m really clear on being my own biggest critic, reviewing everything clearly.

“I want to win so much on Sunday it hurts, don’t get me wrong, but I can handle whatever comes and I know it’s not going to change what the dog thinks when I walk back through the door.”

Southgate: ‘We came to make history’

Southgate is now hoping to “bring some temporary happiness” to what has been an “angry country” by making history on Sunday.

Such rage was clear on social media and also in the stands during the early stages of these Euros, with boos greeting the end of the group draws against Denmark and Slovenia.

He also had beer cups aimed at him after the latter stalemate in Cologne, but he was unflinching in the face of negativity.

“There was a danger (things unravelled) but I was determined to confront it,” he said.

“When the beer came over I was going to go and walk towards it because we fought too hard to change the environment for the players.

“We’ve got players here who are in their first tournament. They’ve actually come into it.

“We’ve got players who have learnt how to win with us and have been with us all the way through.”

“We’ve got some who’ve got no fear anyway. But if we’d suddenly had this environment where it’s ‘I’m not so sure I did enjoy that’ that would have undone the progress we’ve made,” he added

“So, I felt it important to fight for that in that moment. I was the only who was going to be able to do that really.

“And I have no problem if I’m the lightning conductor – to take that for the players. Because in the end that’s the job. The job is to allow them to perform at their best.”

Euro 2024: The Tartan Army still have hope, but it’s win or go home against Hungary | UK News

Not a win but still something to celebrate for the Tartan Army.

With a point to prove, a point was gained off Switzerland. Along with pride and the revival of the dream.

Securing a 1-1 draw could still help Scotland progress in the Euros.

This was the reaction manager Steve Clarke demanded after being humiliated 5-1 by Germany in their Group A opener.

And never did the fans give up on their players – remembering those memorable qualifying wins over Spain and Norway.

“This is the way we’ve been playing as a team over the last three or four years,” he said. “It’s why we’re here at a major tournament.

“So we knew what we had to do. The players knew what they had to do and I thought it was a good team, team performance against a good opponent.”

There will be a concern that after Scott McTominay’s 13th minute opener, a defensive lapse allowed Xherdan Shaqiri to equalise for the Swiss with a thunderous strike.

But there was always goalkeeper Angus Gunn to rely on – bailing them out with saves to preserve the point.

Scotland could find it tough finishing in Group A’s two automatic qualification places. But beating Hungary in Stuttgart on Sunday could put them among the four best third-placed finishers from the six groups.

“They’re going to feel a lot better in the next game,” Clarke said. “On the back of that game, the performance is what we are.

“This is how we play, this is how we work. And we’ll show that as well the aggression and the fight and the dirty side of the game.”

Winning in Cologne last night was always going to be a tall order given the Swiss had only lost two of their previous 14 group matches in tournaments.

And this is a country that has appeared at every major tournament since the 2014 World Cup – with Shaqiri scoring in all of them.

McTominay, who has won trophies with Manchester United, had never netted in an international tournament before last night.

The Scots haven’t even made it to a men’s World Cup since 1998 and Euro 2020 only marked their return to the continental competition since 1996.

But history is weighing against Scotland who have never secured qualification from a group into a tournament knockout phase.

Clarke said: “It’s just about doing better all the time … to what we’re good at, working hard.”

Manchester City win record-breaking fourth Premier League title in a row | UK News

Manchester City have won a record-breaking fourth Premier League title in a row after beating West Ham 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium on the final day of the season.

A wondergoal from Phil Foden put the Sky Blues ahead after just 79 seconds before the England international scored again in the 18th minute.

City looked set to cruise into the history books before an acrobatic bicycle kick from Mohammed Kudus pulled one back for the Hammers before half-time.

However, a goal from Rodri just before the hour mark left West Ham with a lot of work to do if they were to spoil Man City’s party.

Pep Guardiola’s side are now the first English side to win four top flight titles in a row since the first edition of the football league started in 1888.

This season ends with more disappointment for Arsenal who have finished second in the Premier League for the second year in a row.

The Gunners beat Everton 2 – 1 at the Emirates Stadium but needed City to lose in order to lift Premier League trophy.

They have finished two points behind Man City in a title race that went right to the final day of the season.

It means Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, previously Guardiola’s assistant coach at Man City, will have to try again if he wants to knock his former employers off their perch.

City supporters had attempted to run onto the pitch to celebrate during stoppage time as players encouraged them to remain in the stands this afternoon.

However, the pitch was filled with the sky blue shirts of supporters after the final whistle blew and ended another successful Premier League campaign.

It marks another historic year for City after they became only the second English side to win the Treble – lifting the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League trophies – last season.

Elsewhere in the Premier League, Liverpool won 2 – 0 on manager Jurgen Klopp’s final game in charge.

Man City have achieved unprecedented dominance – but judgement day awaits off the pitch

Rob Harris

Rob Harris

Sports correspondent

@RobHarris

Not even Sir Alex Ferguson’s all-conquering Manchester United managed this – four titles in a row.

Never before, in fact, in the 136 years of history of England’s top division.

Manchester City keep setting new standards for Premier League supremacy, dominating the division like never before.

Pep Guardiola’s side created history on a day Arsenal could not overcome the weight of history.

After a 20-year drought, their wait for the trophy goes on.

Mikel Arteta’s men were unable to match the Gunners of 1989 in overhauling the leaders on the final day.

It’s so difficult it has never been done since then.

And it’s even more difficult when coming up against the City’s £1bn squad with the Erling Haaland goal machine and Premier League player-of-the-season Phil Foden.

Spending that is enabled by their Abu Dhabi investors that has fuelled unprecedented dominance but also an unprecedented Premier League investigation.

Amid the celebrations this is a club fighting 115 charges from the Premier League on alleged financial rule breaches stretching back to 2009.

Judgement day awaits, though maybe still months away.

Talk of punishments – this season saw Everton and Nottingham Forest docked points for overspending – is on hold.

So for some is the verdict on this entire period of such superiority on the pitch.

But there’s no doubting the scale of City’s achievements and the scintillating football overseen by the genius of Guardiola.

They’d won the league only twice up to 1968 until 2012.

Now there’s little stopping the juggernaut for the 10 times champions of English football – on the pitch at least.

During his eight-and-a-half years in charge of the Reds, Klopp led them to glory in the Champions League in 2019 and their first-ever Premier League title in 2020.

Liverpool have finished this season in third place – seven points behind Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Brighton manager Roberto de Zerbi watched his side lose 2 – 0 against Manchester United in his last game in charge.

Luton Town, Burnley and Sheffield United all played their last Premier League game for at least another season after being relegated to the Championship.

Rishi Sunak admits Tories may not win general election and claims UK heading for hung parliament | Politics News

Rishi Sunak has admitted the Tories may not win the general election after grim defeats in the local polls.

The prime minister suggested the UK was on course for a hung parliament and claimed voters would not want to see Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer “propped up in Downing Street” by the SNP or smaller parties.

In an interview with The Times, Mr Sunak pointed to Sky News analysis of the local election results by election expert Professor Michael Thrasher which suggested Labour would be the largest party in a hung parliament.

Politics live: PM told to ‘wake up and smell the coffee’ after elections

“These results suggest we are heading for a hung parliament with Labour as the largest party,” Mr Sunak told the paper.

“Keir Starmer propped up in Downing Street by the SNP, Liberal Democrats and the Greens would be a disaster for Britain.

“The country doesn’t need more political horse-trading, but action. We are the only party that has a plan to deliver on the priorities of the people.”

Meanwhile, Tory rebels have warned the prime minister to change his political course after the weekend’s local election results.

Sunak urged to take party towards right

Former home secretary Suella Braverman urged him to mould the party towards the right in order to win back voters.

But she told the BBC a change of leadership was not a “feasible prospect,” adding: “There is no superman or superwoman out there who can do it.”

Ms Braverman urged the prime minister to adopt several measures to win back voters, including further tax cuts and a cap on legal migration.

Rishi Sunak ‘up for the fight’ in general election

Tories ‘up for the fight,’ minister insists

But Transport Secretary Mark Harper insisted Mr Sunak and the Tories are “up for the fight” of a general election despite their terrible results in the local contests.

Talking to Sky News’ Sunday Morning With Trevor Phillips, the minister said: “I think the key thing that people need to do now is get behind the prime minister, focus on the things the government is focused on delivering – the British people’s priorities around the economy, dealing with migration – and get out there and take that fight to the country ahead of the general election.”

Labour won 1,158 seats in the 107 councils in England that held elections on 2 May, an increase of more than 232.

The Liberal Democrats won 552 seats, up nearly 100, while the Tories came in third place on 515 seats, down nearly 400.

Last minute goal seals Carabao Cup win for Liverpool over Chelsea | UK News

Last minute heroics from Virgil van Dijk saw Liverpool beat Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final.

Jurgen Klopp’s swansong season will have at least one trophy now, as his side won a topsy-turvy encounter at Wembley Stadium 1-0.

Both sides had chances early, with Chelsea goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic called into action twice in quick succession to deny Alexis Mac Allister and Luis Diaz.

Then at the other end of the pitch, Liverpool’s Caoimhin Kelleher produced an unbelievable stop from point-blank range to keep out a shot from Cole Palmer.

Both Raheem Sterling for Chelsea and Van Dijk later had goals ruled out by VAR for offside.

Finally, with two minutes left of extra-time a breakthrough was found. Van Dijk rose into the air from a corner to nod in at the Liverpool end, sending the Reds into bedlam.

Reacting to the win, Klopp said what happened at Wembley was “absolutely insane”.

“These things are not possible,” he said.

“Besides, we had a team, a squad with an academy full of character. It’s unbelievable what happened here. I’m so proud that I could be part of it. Wow.”

Liverpool had named a line up missing 11 first team players including Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez and Dominik Szobozslai, and their bench featured six players aged 21 or younger.

By contrast Chelsea recently went on a billion-pound spending spree to rebuild their squad, with Trevoh Chalobah on the bench their only player in the squad remaining from the two teams’ 2022 final meeting.

Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino said: “It’s always difficult when you lose a final because you have the chances. It’s one game.

“We lost in the last minute of the game. So painful. Now we have to take the positive things, keep going, push and use this type of game to learn and do better and only be positive.”

“It is amazing to play on Court One with such a special crowd and manage to get the job done,” Searle said on court.

“It’s a pretty special feeling and it is not going to come too often and I am going to try and enjoy it. It was amazing in front of this crowd today.”

Meanwhile, on Centre Court, Prince George and Princess Charlotte joined their parents the Prince and Princess of Wales in the Royal Box for the men’s singles final.

England win European Under-21 Championship with 1-0 victory over Spain | UK News

England have won the European Under-21 Championship for the first time since 1984 with a 1-0 victory over Spain in the final.

The win came thanks to a goal from Curtis Jones four minutes into first-half stoppage time, when Cole Palmer’s free kick was deflected off his back and into the net.

Spain’s Abel Ruiz thought he had equalised with a header from a free kick, but VAR ruled he was offside.

Five minutes into stoppage time, Spain were awarded a penalty after Levi Colwill tackled Ruiz inside the box – but keeper James Trafford became the hero when he saved Ruiz’s shot.

The England side did not concede a single goal at the tournament in Georgia.

Trafford revealed after the game that he predicted he would make a penalty save.

“I told everyone this morning I was going to save a pen,” he said. “When they got a penalty, I knew I was going to save it.”

Tempers flared on and off the pitch Saturday night, with a total of 30 fouls, 11 yellow cards and four reds handed to players and coaches on the bench.

England coach Ashley Cole and his Spain counterpart were dismissed from the dugout in an eventful conclusion to the first half of the match.

FA chief executive Mark Bullingham shared his congratulations, saying completing the tournament without conceding a goal was “simply remarkable”.

“The manner in which this England squad has progressed through the tournament has been hugely impressive,” he said.

“Everybody connected with the group should feel a great sense of pride for the part they’ve played in leading this age group to the trophy for the first time since 1984.”

Man in serious condition after assaults during Celtic Scottish Premiership win celebrations | UK News

A man remains in a serious condition in hospital after being attacked during celebrations of Celtic’s Scottish Premiership title win, Police Scotland has said.

Two other men also needed treatment following assaults as thousands of the club’s fans gathered in Glasgow Cross on Saturday.

Police were also targeted but none were injured.

In all, 10 people were arrested and eight people were handed fixed-penalty fines.

Rubbish – including plastic bags, bottles and cans – was also left strewn throughout the city centre after the celebrations.

Celtic signed off the season with a thumping 5-0 home win against Aberdeen, although the Parkhead side had secured the trophy even before kick-off.

It was the side’s 11th league title in 12 years.

“A further eight people were issued with fixed penalty notices.

“Eighteen people sustained minor injuries mainly due to intoxication.”

Seven sites get government backing to win UNESCO World Heritage status | UK News

Seven sites have received government backing to win UNESCO World Heritage status.

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) publishes a “tentative list” around every 10 years setting out which sites it feels have the best chance of being included.

If successful, the sites will join the 33 other World Heritage sites in the UK or overseas territories, including Stonehenge and Hadrian’s Wall.

The seven sites are:

• York city centre, with its Anglo-Saxon, Viking and Norman history, and civic and religious buildings including York Minster
• Birkenhead Park, which opened in 1847 – a pioneering project to bring greenery to urban environments and a blueprint for municipal planning that has influenced famous sites such as New York’s Central Park
• The Zenith of Iron Age Shetland – three ancient settlements dating back thousands of years
• The East Atlantic Flyway – a migratory bird route over western Europe which includes Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Kent
• The Little Cayman Marine Parks and Protected Areas, in the UK overseas territory of the Cayman Islands
• The Flow Country – a large area of peatland across Caithness and Sutherland in Scotland’s north
• Gracehill Moravian Church Settlement in Northern Ireland

The last two submitted their full nominations to UNESCO earlier this year, and remain on the Government’s tentative list, while the other five are new additions.

Heritage Minister Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay said: “Today we are confirming our support for some of the most enchanting heritage sites and breath-taking landscapes in the UK and its overseas territories as they bid for UNESCO World Heritage Site status.

“All the locations being put forward would be worthy recipients of this accolade – and we will give them our full backing so they can benefit from the international recognition it can bring.”

UNESCO World Heritage status is for places that are of “outstanding universal value to humanity” and should be “protected for future generations to appreciate and enjoy”.

Places already recognised include the pyramids of Egypt, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, Galapagos Islands in Ecuador, the Taj Mahal in India, the Grand Canyon in the USA, and the Acropolis in Greece.

Laura Davies, HM Ambassador to UNESCO, said: “It is great that the UK is contributing to making World Heritage more representative.

“These five sites brilliantly reflect the diversity and beauty of the UK and its overseas territories’ natural and cultural heritage, and I look forward to working with them towards World Heritage listing.”

The DCMS will work with local authorities and devolved administrations to develop their bids.
