25/6/12 So here endeth our Euro 2012 blog... with apologies to Nani, we'll wrap up this rolling article now there is only one United player left in the tournament after England and France followed Denmark in bowing out. But we'll continue to follow Portugal's fortunes in Football News and wish our man Luis Carlos Almeida da Cunha all the best for the big semi-final against Spain on Wednesday night. (AB)

24/6/12 Rooney and Young both played the full 120 minutes of the quarter-final, while Welbeck came off after the first hour of normal time. Phil Jones wasn't involved but his time will surely come in a major tournament - qualification permitting, could he be a key player in the next World Cup, Brazil 2014? (AB)

24/6/12 Commiserations to our England quartet as Roy Hodgson's side exit Euro 2012 after losing a penalty shoot-out to Italy. After two goalless hours, the spot-kicks settled it, and unfortunately Ashley Young - as well as his namesake Ashley Cole - failed to score from 12 yards. The Italians deserved to go through on the balance of play, but losing on pens always hurts. (AB)

24/6/12 Oh, so close... for a split-second, it seemed Wazza was going to win it for England in injury time when Carroll headed Ashley Cole's cross back towards the middle of Italy's box. But our number 10 was too close to Buffon's goal to execute his overhead kick successfully and the ball sailed over the bar to send the match into extra-time. 0-0 at full-time.
