Blog: United at the Euros


24/6/12 Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Ashley Young all started England's quarter-final against Italy in Kiev, as Roy Hodgson stuck with the same eleven who overcame Ukraine in the final group game. Welbeck was substituted around the hour mark, however, as the England coach sent on Liverpool striker Andy Carroll and also replaced Man City's James Milner with Arsenal winger Theo Walcott. (AB)

23/6/12 Commiserations to Patrice Evra and France who are out of Euro 2012 after losing 2-0 in their quarter-final clash against Spain. Xabi Alonso's double - a first-half header and an injury-time penalty - secured victory for the Spanish who dominated the opening period and were rarely troubled by Laurent Blanc's men after the break. Evra was an unused substitute in the game in Donetsk. Spain will now face Portugal - who have Nani in their squad - on Wednesday night in the first of the tournament's semi-finals. (GT)

22/6/2012 Darren Bent was interviewed by Talksport this morning and revealed he's been most impressed with former Sunderland strike partner Danny Welbeck. Aston Villa striker Bent, ruled out of the tournament due to injury, feels our young striker has been "working his socks off" in a demanding role for England. (AM)

21/6/12 Portugal deserved to win their quarter-final, no doubt, with the Czechs seemingly content to try and contain Ronaldo and Nani for 90 minutes and play for penalties. Maybe that was an understandable tactic given their goalkeeper Petr Cech's recent shoot-out succcess with Chelsea... but hey, I'm sure he lost on penalties on another occasion, when Ronny was on the opposite side. If I think long and hard enough, it might come back to me. (AB)

21/6/12 Well done Nani on reaching the Euro 2012 semi-finals with Portugal, thanks in no small part to that man Cristiano
