Calderon told

TalkSport: "It is clear that he is unhappy because the president has refused to extend his contract.

"I find it like a punishment because he supported Carlo Ancelotti publicly, he said it was a mistake to sack him, and he is also backing Iker Casillas.

"Let us see what happens in the next few weeks. It is going to be very exciting to know what is happening. If Sergio goes to Man United, they will be very lucky."

The Azzurri lost 2-1 to Sweden in their opening game and will only go through to the knockout stage if they beat England and Sweden lose to Portugal.

"Our future is hanging by a thread, it won't be easy but we are ready," said Lazio midfielder Cataldi.

"We have to face England with one single goal... victory."

Asked about the success of England at the Women's World Cup, Southgate said he and his players were using it as an inspiration.

"I've spent some time around their camp because they are at St George's when I'm in my office," he said.

"They have a really good environment and Mark Sampson has done a great job in building that.

"They lost their first game as you often do in major tournaments, but they've come back and that is a good example for us."

Southgate's Under-21s lost to Portugal in their opening game but recovered to beat Sweden in their next game. Their final group match is against Italy on Wednesday - full coverage on the BBC Sport website.

John Stones

Everton defender John Stones is available again after a head injury. Asked if that was a bonus, Southgate joked: "We are never sure with Stones whether he is still groggy or not so I don't quite know how the doc works it out!"

The boss added: "John is fit and available and he is a top player so I have a decision to make in that respect because we've only let one goal in and the defenders have defended with great heart and spirit and that's why we've got to the point we have."

England Under-21 news conference

Gareth Southgate speaks to media

England are second in their group at the European Championships, level on points with Sweden. They play Italy on Wednesday in their final group match and need a win to be guaranteed of going through to the semi-finals.

Asked about the lack of goals so far - England have only scored one in their first two games at the tournament - Southgate said: "Nobody has managed to win two matches and we are in the last eight of major competition - so there shouldn't be a lot between the teams and you have to earn everything you get.

"We haven't missed glaring chances so we need to look at whether we have created enough.

"We are three games away from the opportunity to be European Champions so we will discuss how we can get better because we need to be better."

at Uxbridge:

"Middlesex have reached tea on day three at Uxbridge still 24 runs behind after Worcestershire totalled 385, thanks to a fine century from Tom Fell and a cameo from Jack Shantry down the order.

Nottinghamshire 224, Yorkshire 163-3

BBC Radio Nottingham's Chris Ellis

at Headingley:

"Yorkshire back in control at Headingley thanks to some splendid batting from Andrew Gale (67 not out) and Jack Leaning (50 not out).

"The pair now have the highest partnership of the match, currently worth 112, and have gone a long way to giving the hosts a first-innings lead.

"Notts have been second-best in this game, apart from today's first session and now the ball is 50 overs old, they will have to work hard to get back into this one.

"England's Stuart Broad has been the pick of the bowlers with 2-25 from 11 overs so far."

Vidal payment snubbed

Jose Pinochet, BBC Mundo

A charity in Chile that campaigns for the victims of drink-drive accidents has rejected a payment offered to them by Arturo Vidal, the national team's star midfielder who crashed after drinking last week.

Vidal was arrested after the incident, which occurred when his Ferrari left the road in Santiago - but was later released and has continued to play for Chile in the ongoing Copa America tournament in the country.

Arturo Vidal's Ferrari

After admitting in a statement that he had "taken two drinks, then had an accident", Vidal pledged any money he received as a reward for his performances in the Copa America would go to the Emilia Foundation charity.

However, the charity has said it would not accept any payments from Vidal - at least until the legal process ends.

Arsenal close in on Cech


Former Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson on BBC Radio 5 live

Petr Cech

"I think Petr Cech joining Arsenal from Chelsea would be an amazing signing. It's another step towards the title.

"Arsenal are very close to having a squad that almost matches Chelsea and Manchester City. I think everybody knows Arsenal are minimum two, maybe three, good signings to really challenge Chelsea.

"He's 33 now, he still has five or six season of greatness in him and he is going to give Arsenal that assurance at the back that they really need.

"When a side wins the league it starts with the man at the back and usually when a side wins the league the goalkeeper usually has an amazing season."
