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 Ronaldo again. The former Reds star was lively throughout, hitting the post twice before eventually scoring against Czech Republic with a powerful header. (AB)

21/6/12 Gary Neville has admitted he's been struggling to control his emotions during England's Euro 2012 matches. The former Red is part of Roy Hodgson's coaching staff and, while Neville is thoroughly enjoying the role, he admits keeping his emotions in check is proving tricky. "I was quite passionate on the pitch, but on the bench, I can't control myself," Neville told FATV. "It's good to have someone calming next to me, because I'm bobbing up and down like a cork!" The ex-England international, who won 85 caps, added that he has been hugely impressed by the players' attitude and application during the tournament: "The work rate, the endeavour and the effort has been absolutely incredible."
