Atmosphere building in Nice

England fans in Nice

The atmosphere is starting to build around the magnificent Stade de Nice as fans leave the sea front area and head out towards the stadium. 

England's fans waiting outside the team hotel in the centre of Nice were all smiles as they caught a glimpse of manager Roy Hodgson - he will be hoping they are in similarly buoyant mood after they have faced Iceland in this Euro 2016 last-16 meeting.

Can the dentist drill into England?

England v Iceland, Euro 2016 last 16 (Monday, 20:00 BST)

Heimir Hallgrimsson

Joint Iceland coach Heimir Hallgrimsson says knocking England out of Euro 2016 would change the lives of his players.

The 49-year-old had to take time off work for this tournament as he juggles his role with the national team with his job as a part-time dentist.

"The players have already won the hearts of all Icelandic people for their performances," he said.

"If we beat England, their lives will significantly change forever. Icelandic football will go up in reputation and the way we approach football will be different.

"There aren't bigger chances than this for Icelandic football. It's just up to the players to play and hopefully we will beat England. But whichever way this goes, these players are winners already."

No point looking back - Hodgson

England v Iceland, Euro 2016 last 16 (Monday, 20:00 BST)

England boss Roy Hodgson has said there is no point in wondering what might have been.

Last Monday's 0-0 draw with Slovakia has left the Three Lions on the same side of the draw as Italy, Spain, France and Germany.

"All you can do is force yourself to worry only about the things you can do - to make certain that when you look in the mirror, as the players go out on to the field, you can look at yourself and say 'What else could I have done?'" Hodgson said.

"'Did we prepare well enough? Was the training right? Have I chosen the right team?'"

Football's coming home

Just to get you in the mood for tonight's England game against Iceland in Nice here's something a little different.

Jack Wild: Iceland sit deep and soak up pressure. England have all the possession but no cutting edge. Penalties await, mark my words.

Xavier Edmonds-Allen: We shouldn't know that Sterling is due to start - whoever is leaking the team is doing us damage as opposition can prepare!

Chris Collins: Sterling will score tonight. You watch.

Mic Medeska: Watching from US. We'll beat Iceland, go out next round. Roy will hail amazing progress, not realising it's more of the same.

'Williams is Wales' leader'

Wales v Belgium, Euro 2016 QF (Friday, 20:00 BST)

Rob Phillips

BBC Wales Football Correspondent in Nice

It's difficult to underestimate the significance of captain Ashley Williams being fit to face Belgium.

Gareth Bale is the talisman for Chris Coleman but Williams is the leader, whose appetite for battle was demonstrated by his refusal to leave the pitch when he sustained his shoulder injury against Northern Ireland.

Williams has played every minute of the European Championship - through qualifying and the finals - his defensive presence and organisation will be key to thwarting Belgium's much vaunted attacking prowess in Lille.  

Williams not 'a worry or a doubt'

Wales v Belgium, Euro 2016 QF (Friday, 20:00 BST

Here's more from Wales boss Chris Coleman, who says captain Ashley Williams will be fit for Friday's Euro 2016 quarter-final against Belgium.

''I would not say he was a worry or a doubt, but we know we have to look after him. I would be surprised if he does not make the game," said Coleman.

Hodgson's 'day of destiny'

England manager Roy Hodgson will almost certainly be out of a job if England are knocked out of Euro 2016 by Iceland in Nice tonight, according to BBC Sport chief football writer Phil McNulty.

Iceland are ranked 34th in the world and with a population of 330,000 - the same as Leicester.

Phil writes: "Hodgson has also had to deal with rumblings that some inside the FA were unhappy at his shock tactic of six changes against Slovakia with much still at stake, leaving England exposed to more dangerous opponents should they go deeper in Euro 2016."

Italy 'almost tactically perfect'

Spain striker Alvaro Morata has warned his team-mates that they are facing an Italy team who are "almost tactically perfect".

The two sides meet in the second round in Paris at 17:00 BST.

The 23-year-old has just returned to Real Madrid after two seasons with Juventus.

"It's difficult to attack against them, they are specialists," he said. "It will be one of the most important games of my career."

The match is live on BBC One, Radio 5 live and the BBC Sport website and app.

Portugal avoid 'selfie' punishment

Portugal have avoided punishment after a pitch invader took a selfie with captain Cristiano Ronaldo during a Euro 2016 match.

The incident drew a charge from Uefa, but the case was closed after a meeting of its independent disciplinary body.

The fan had been allowed to run half the length of the pitch to get the picture, during the goalless draw with Austria on June 18.

Ronaldo was happy to oblige, waving stewards away and posing.

Meanwhile, Belgium have been fined 5,000 euros (£4,170) by European football's governing body Uefa after fans set off fireworks during their 3-0 victory over Republic of Ireland in Group E, also on 18 June.

Beaumont helps set formidable target

Tammy Beaumont scored 168 not out as England reached 366-4 from their 50 overs.

That's the joint fourth-highest score in women's one-day international history but falls 12 short of the 378 they scored at Worcester in the second game of the series.

Coleman 'not afraid' of Belgium

Euro 2016

Friday's quarter-final meeting between Belgium and Wales will be the fifth time the two teams have met since September 2012.

Marc Wilmots' side have won their last three matches in the Euros, scoring eight and conceding none.

"I watched the game last night and it was a convincing win," Wales boss Chris Coleman said.

"They play the way they play and they have players who would grace any international team.

"In the last four years we've had four meetings. We've won one, they've won one and we've drawn two so we have nothing to be afraid of."

Wales boss Chris Coleman says skipper Ashley Williams has not dislocated his shoulder and will be fit for Friday's quarter-final against France.

Williams was hurt after colliding with team-mate Jonny Williams in Saturday's last-16 win over Northern Ireland.

"We think it was when he fell, he fell on his hand with a straight arm," said Coleman.

"He'll be OK, he'll be fine. It's probably a bit more sore today than yesterday. We'll get him on the grass as soon as we can. It probably won't be for another day or two - we need to look after him."

'Wales have a vision and an identity'

Euro 2016

Wales boss Chris Coleman is facing the press for his side's quarter-final with Belgium on Friday.

"You just think of now. We are not thinking of an end date and we are not thinking of what we have achieved," he said.

"We're in a great position of course and I am extremely proud of what's happening but by no means are we thinking that the next game is going to lead to something bigger.

"We're in a positive frame of mind and we have a vision and an identity. When we stick to that it gives us a chance."

'I would pick Vardy'

England should stick with Jamie Vardy for the Iceland game, according to Match of the Day pundit Danny Murphy.

Murphy believes that the Leicester City man "looks sharper" than Tottenham frontman Harry Kane.

The 25-year-old  won gold on the track at London 2012, but, on the advice of British Cycling, switched full-time to road racing last year.

Puel is expected to be appointed at St Mary's later this week after what the Telegraph describe as "positive talks".

Grigg's fire put out

Will Grigg

Will Grigg says he is "massively disappointed" after failing to make an appearance for Northern Ireland in their four Euro 2016 games. 

The Wigan forward became a cult figure in France through the 'Will Grigg's on Fire' song. 

"The song is one thing, but to come to a tournament like this and not play, as a professional footballer, is massively disappointing," said Grigg. 

Grigg, 24, was one of only three outfield players in the squad not used. 

Michael O'Neill's team bowed out of the competition on Saturday following a 1-0 round-of-16 defeat by Wales.

England fans are already gathering around the entrance to the team hotel, set back away from the busy sea front here in Nice, to give manager Roy Hodgson and his players a send off, even though their departure for their Euro 2016 last 16 game with Iceland is still hours away.

It is a 9pm kick-off local time and that may just provide welcome relief from the steamy, scorching heat here on the Riviera in the south of France. They may still be strength-sapping conditions but it should at least be a little cooler by kick-off time.

Winger Jack Nowell has benefitted from England's more attacking approach under Eddie Jones, according to Exeter head coach Rob Baxter.

Nowell, 23, featured in all three wins over Australia on the tour down under and scored a try in the first Test.

"He's getting the ball in potentially try-scoring situations, which he wasn't getting that much last season, and I think that's the big difference," Baxter told BBC Sport.

Blanc departs in 'serene atmosphere'


Former Manchester United defender Laurent Blanc won 11 trophies in his three seasons in charge of Paris Saint-Germain.
