Ukraine have announced their provisional 28-man squad for Euro 2016 and interestingly there's a place for both Andriy Yarmolenko and Taras Stepanenko - who clashed rather violently a few weeks ago.
Yarmolenko viciously hacked Stepanenko and both were sent off as a brawl marred a league match between their respective clubs, Shakhtar Donetsk and Dynamo Kiev.
"I'd like the whole country to know my friendship with Yarmolenko has ended," Stepanenko said shortly afterwards. Yes indeed. But they were both singing a different tune at a news conference this afternoon.
"I would like peace and friendship to prevail inside our team. As a man, I am used to being responsible for my actions," Yarmolenko said.
Stepanenko added: "We have discussed this situation and I hope this won't happen again as we are likely to play side-by-side in the Ukraine team for many years. This dispute should be considered settled."
Some more reaction to the decision by Muirfield to maintain its ban on women members.

Fulham are interested in signing Bournemouth striker Glenn Murray, according to the Evening Standard.
The London paper says the Cherries are prepared to let him go on a free despite having paid Crystal Palace £4m last summer.
Fulham, who had their transfer embargo lifted this week, would take on the 32-year-old's weekly salary of £30,000, they add.
New Aston Villa owner Dr Tony Xia has said the club's next manager will be given up to £50m to spend to get the club back into the Premier League.
The Chinese businessman also confirmed former Chelsea and West Brom boss Roberto di Matteo is in contention for the managerial vacancy.
Xia bought the club from Randy Lerner this week for £60m, subject to Football League approval.
"We will have a budget from £20m to £30m to £40m to £50m," he said.
"It depends when we have the coach around the table."
Some absolutely incredible stats coming out of this one.
The last 65 Grand Slams!
So now we know, for all the stick Louis van Gaal has received this season and the pressure he has been under as Manchester United manager, his hardest task lies in front of him.
For, after working with a squad of 27 players this season, Van Gaal knows he has to disappoint some.
Seven will have the consolation of missing out on a starting spot for Saturday's FA Cup final by being named on the substitutes' bench.
That means nine will remain in their suits and sit in the stands.Of those, Luke Shaw and Bastian Schweinsteiger are injured. Third choice keeper Sam Johnstone won't reasonably expect to be involved either.
But with Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo fit, and Marouane Fellaini back from suspension, there are some from the 17 who were on duty against Bournemouth on Tuesday who cannot be sure of their place.
The 17-time Grand Slam singles champion added: "This decision was not easy to make, but I took it to ensure I could play the remainder of the season and help to extend the rest of my career.
"I remain as motivated and excited as ever and my plan is to achieve the highest level of fitness before returning to the ATP World Tour for the upcoming grass court season. I am sorry for my fans in Paris but I very much look forward to returning to Roland Garros in 2017."
In a Facebook post, Federer, 34, wrote: "I regret to announce that I have made the decision not to play in this year’s French Open.
"I have been making steady progress with my overall fitness, but I am still not 100% and feel I might be taking an unnecessary risk by playing in this event before I am really ready."
Roger Federer announces he will not be taking part at this year's French Open.
It was also pointed out to Louis van Gaal that victory on Saturday would secure Manchester United's first trophy since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
"For me it is not the most interesting point," he replied.
"We are able to win something, now we can win something but still you have nothing, it is always a final you cannot predict. First we have to win.
"It is not good to speak about my interests. It is important for the club, the players, the manager and his staff. We have played four matches of six away. We deserve to win. But Crystal Palace beat Tottenham so it is also deserved they are at the final."
Here's the full result of today's big race
1 Skiffle (W Buick) 5-1
2 The Black Princess (L Dettori) 13-8 Fav
3 Play Gal (Catherine Gannon) 25-1
9 ran. Distances: 1 length, 7 lengths
Here's a little more from Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal.
Asked whether it was a particularly important game for himself, given the amount of speculation surrounding his future, he replied:"I think the interests of the club are much more important than the manager.
"Of course, you have put your own aims. [Winning the FA Cup] is one I have always had. But close is not enough.You have to win it. I have read that the last FA Cup is 2004, so also for Manchester United it is a big title.
"We are playing in the most prestigious temple of England. It confirms how important it is."
Bayer Leverkusen haveannounced the signing of Austria international Julian Baumgartlinger on a four-year deal.
The 28-year-old midfielder, who is in national team manager Marcel Koller's provisional 24-man squad for Euro 2016, joins from Leverkusen's fellow Bundesliga club Mainz.
Here's a little more from Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal: "Always your starting point, to impress and perform good, depends on a lot of factors, including your opponent.
"Our starting point is to win well and score beautiful goals. But if we win 1-0 that is also enough. Winning is the most important thing in a final, otherwise you have nothing."
The latest word from Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is that Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo will be fit for Saturday's FA Cup final against Crystal Palace. Marouane Fellaini is available again too of course, after suspension.
"It is always important to win silverware," Van Gaal said. "For players, qualification is not a title. A title is the FA Cup and championship. They can look and hold the cup. That is exciting.
"The FA Cup is a big title in England. We are playing in the most prestigious temple of England. It confirms how important it is."
Alan Pardew is set to commit his future to Crystal Palace by signing a new contract before Saturday's FA Cup final with Manchester United.
Pardew became Palace boss on a three-and-a-half-year deal in January 2015.
He led the club to 10th in the Premier League last season but the Eagles struggled in the second half of this year's campaign, slumping to 17th from fifth, before finishing 15th.
Details of the new contract remain undisclosed but Pardew said: "We are probably going to (sign) it before the game."
Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special
"This pair have have got England out of a nasty hole, in contrasting ways; Bairstow free and easy, and Hales has done a damn good job without catching the eye. This is his most significant Test innings so far."
This has been a fine stand from Alex Hales (71) and Jonny Bairstow (54), who came in with England floundering at 82-5.
They've since motored on to 171-5 at tea.
Most of us are agreed this, from The Sun, is one of the great headlines, but what's the story behind it?
Date: Tuesday 8 February, 2000
Competition: Scottish Cup third round
Score: Celtic 1-3 Inverness
We believe the Liverpool Echo should take the credit for that one.
Udinese have appointed the former Palermo coach Giuseppe Iachini as their new manager after deciding not to renew Luigi De Canio's contract.
Iachini, fired twice by Palermo this season (and he's not the only one, incredibly), has previously guided Chievo Verona, Brescia and Sampdoria to Serie A promotions.
Udinese finished 17th in Italy's top flight this season, only one point above the relegation zone - their worst finish since being promoted from Serie B in 1995.
The scene is set for Louis van Gaal's pre-FA Cup final press conference.
For months now, the talk at Manchester United's media briefings has been about his future, or more pertinently, whether he has got one.
That is bound to resurface again after Saturday's game.
But whatever the future is for United's manager, he is brink of winning the club's first trophy since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
Saturday's FA Cup final sees Crystal Palace take on Manchester United. For the latter it's a chance to win a first title since 2004.
But would victory at Wembley make this season a success, after finishing fifth in the Premier League?
"We have to be realistic. United should be fighting for every title. We didn't do that with the Champions League," said United midfielder Ander Herrera.
"We didn't do that with the Premier League. So we have two options. Firstly, feel sorry for ourselves. Or, secondly, get this trophy for the fans, for our club and for ourselves."
Leicester won the league, Chelsea took a dive, and Sam Allardyce performed another relegation rescue act.
But who had the best shot conversion ratio? Made the most passes? Ran the greatest distance each game?
We've been crunching the numbers behind an unforgettable year, and you can head over here for everything you need to know.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle and their manager John Hughes are negotiating the detail of a package that will confirm his departure from the club.
The relationship between manager and board has become increasingly strained with the budget available for next season central to that tension.
Hughes, who led the club to Scottish Cup victory last season and secured a first European campaign, has become increasingly frustrated at the loss of key talent such as Billy McKay, Graeme Shinnie, Marley Watkins and, most recently, Miles Storey who has agreed to join Aberdeen after a successful loan period with the Highland club.
Last season's Manager of the Year admitted his disappointment at not being allowed to talk to Dundee United earlier this term when they made an approach following the sacking of Jackie McNamara.
It could be worse for England in their first Test against Sri Lanka at Headingley.
Having slumped to a 83-5 there's at least a little brightness in this latest stand from Alex Hales (the star man today with 54 so far) and Jonny Bairstow (21).

Chris Eubank Jr will make the first defence of his British middleweight title against Tom Doran at The O2 in London on 25 June.
It is Eubank Jr's first fight since he beat fellow Englishman Nick Blackwell to land the title in March.
Blackwell suffered a bleed on the skull following the bout at Wembley Arena and was placed in an induced coma.
The 25-year-old did not require surgery and is now out of hospital but he says he will not fight again.

Rafael Benitez's decision whether to stay on as Newcastle manager will depend on the amount of funds he is given to strengthen the squad.
Benitez took over in March but could not stop the club being relegated, despite the Magpies winning three of their last six league matches.
He could now activate a clause in his deal which allows him to leave.
However, he has held talks with the Magpies hierarchy, with talks described as positive.

British golfer Melissa Reid has been reacting to the news of Muirfield's vote against allowing female members. Here she is on BBC Radio 5 live:
"I think ‘embarrassing’ is probably the word that comes to mind for me. You know it was an opportunity for Muirfield, but they've wasted it.
“I think that the decision the R&A have made to postpone the Open being there is a good one. I wouldn't play there, because I’d be going against what I believe if I went there.
"We’re still a long way off the men’s game in terms of prize money, and this just sets it back even further.”
Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew has been speaking ahead of Saturday's FA Cup final against Manchester United.
Pardew played in the 1990 final between the teams, which United won after a replay.
"1990 in many ways made this club," he said.
"It would be good for football, for the DNA of this club to win a trophy, we play street football, with players from different roots. This group has the opportunity to put something permanent there, the first major trophy for this club."
Crystal Palace and Manchester United meet in the FA Cup final in a 17:30 BST kick-off at Wembley on Saturday - and the BBC has a whole day of programming dedicated to the event.
You can watch the match live on BBC One, the Red Button and the BBC Sport website and app.
BBC Radio 5 live will have full match coverage, while there will also be live text commentary online from 10:00 BST, with video highlights.
You can also watch a series of specially scheduled programmes in the run-up to kick-off.
Tomas Rosicky returns to the Czech Republic squad after almost a year out with injuries as one of 28 in a provisional squad for this summer's Euros in France.
The 35-year-old is set to leave Arsenal this summer, but has said he plans to carry on playing.
Neil Warnock says he would have been "staying for the wrong reasons" if he had remained at Rotherham United.
Warnock secured the club's Championship status after three months in charge but opted to leave on Wednesday.
Speaking to BBC Radio Sheffield, the 67-year-old admitted he nearly signed a new contract last week.
"I did feel the club needs somebody to commit themselves now to actually take it forward," he said.
"I have that one season left in me and I felt at the end, I would have been staying at Rotherham for the wrong reasons."
