Jonny: Billy McKay's late overhead winner for Caley Thistle v Rangers earlier this season. Sumptuous.  

Hola Senor: George Ndah vs millwall 1996. The whole thing happened in slow motion and keeper flapped at air before the ball trickled in  

John, South Molton: Clinton Morrison for Exeter City against Stevenage, his only league goal for us, what a beauty!!!  

AFC Crayke v Easingwold Town

York Minster Engineering League

I cannot believe that Sportsday has yet to give the biggest local derby in York Minster Engineering League history a mention. Division 4 AFC Crayke take on local sworn enemies from Division 2 Easingwold Town in the York League Junior Cup this evening


Sorry, we completely overlooked this. Rookie error.

It's bound to be a York Junior League Cup classic. Forget the Champions League semi-final, get yourself up to the north east for this one.

Missed this? Have a listen...

Alex: Has to be Mauro Bressan's from about 25 yards out in the champions league.  

Atletico against the odds at Bernabeu

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid (Tuesday, 19:45 BST)

More on the big match tonight in the last four of the Champions League and Real Madrid are through to their seventh successive semi-final, a competition record.

They have only won two of those - when they went on to lift the trophy both times - and have yet to be beaten finalists in the Champions League era. 

Real's home record in European Cup semi-finals is impressive, winning 18, drawing six and losing only three. 

They are unbeaten in their last five home games at the semi-final stage and December's 2-2 draw with Borussia Dortmund is the sole occasion they have failed to win in their last 11 European home fixtures.

Petra Kvitova is back on the training court!

Here's what the two-time Wimbledon champion had to say: "Hello guys I hope this picture makes you as happy as it makes me! I am in Monaco and guess what? I'm back on the tennis court, hitting with some proper balls and reunited with my dear friend @wilsontennis racquet."

The Czech was stabbed by an intruder in her home in December.

Atletico Madrid's France forward Antoine Griezmann, 26, is attracted by the prospect of signing for Manchester United - but has reservations about leaving Spain, says ESPN.

Simeone to coach Argentina one day?

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid (19:45 BST)

Former Atletico Madrid player, Diego Simeone's ex-roommate and now-Chicago Fire boss Veljko Paunovic has been speaking to BBC World Service.

He recalls the time he first realised Simeone would make a successful coach: "The moment when I saw that was when I was sharing a room with him. 

"We played against Deportivo La Coruna, we won that game and he tried to influence the coach to give him (the coach) ideas. 

"The plan worked and we won the game and at that point it was clear to me that he would want to become a coach. I could see the expression of joy on his face, it was an epiphany, I think that was the moment.

"He is executing his plan and I know that Atletico was always part of his plan, part of his project to be a successful coach. I think one day we'll see him as the coach of Argentina."

Atkinson in charge for semi-final showdown

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid (Tuesday, 19:45 BST)

BBC Radio 5 live

English referee Martin Atkinson will be hoping not to be a victim of anything like the last two instances we have heard about when he takes charge of tonight's Champions League semi-final at the Bernabeu.

Atletico are unbeaten in the home legs of all five of their European Cup semi-finals, winning four and drawing once.

But in those five matches they have only won one away leg, which came against Chelsea in April 2014.

This season in La Liga, Real won 3-0 at Atletico courtesy of a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick, while the Bernabeu match last month finished 1-1.

Four-year ban for knee attack on ref


Marco Goncalves, a striker in more ways than one for Portuguese amateur club Canelas, went significantly further than pushing a referee - he somehow managed to knee one in the face. 

Unsurprisingly Goncalves will not be turning out again for a while.

"Marco Goncalves has been given a suspension of four years for assaulting a referee, two months for insults and threats and three months for assaulting an opposition player," a spokesman for the Porto regional league told AFP. 

Rapava Ruskin cited for pushing referee

Rugby Union

Remember Paolo di Canio pushing referee Paul Alcock in the late 90s? Well, Worcester prop Val Rapava Ruskin will appear before a Rugby Football Union disciplinary panel after being cited for pushing referee Greg Garner during Friday's match against Newcastle.

The RFU said the 24-year-old had been charged with acts contrary to good sportsmanship, law 10.4(m).

Great Britain's Aljaz Bedene has been in great form recently, and he has just won again.

Meanwhile, at the Estoril Open in Portugal, Kyle Edmund is currently in action against Joao Domingues.

The British number two is currently 3-2 up in the third set having recovered from losing the opener 6-4 to take the second set 6-3 against the Portuguese.

No saga for GB as Forsyth seals victory


Not the flurry of goals they may have been hoping for but Great Britain have beaten hosts Malaysia 1-0 in the six-team Azlan Shah Cup hockey tournament in Ipoh.

Alan Forsyth's penalty stroke proved the difference between the sides, Britain now with two wins and a draw from their three matches to hold second in the round-robin event.

Their next match tomorrow is a big one against leaders and defending champions Australia, who also have two wins and a draw - and a better goal difference - so far.

Dyche in Pulis' 'top three'


Getty Images

We heard West Brom boss Tony Pulis' verdict on British coaches earlier, well the Welshman also says Burnley's Sean Dyche is in the top three Premier League managers of the year.

The Clarets are 14th - two points off ninth place - and close to securing top-flight survival after being promoted last season.

"He's got promoted straight away with a club that had been relegated the year before," said Pulis.

"And they could end up in the top half of the Premier League with a small budget. He's done fantastic."

'Fantastically well,' perhaps he could have said instead.

Momentum more vital than position - Stam


Reading manager Jaap Stam

Reading manager Jaap Stam believes momentum rather than a highest-placed finish will be most important going into the Championship play-offs.

The Royals secured their play-off place with a 1-0 win over Wigan on Saturday and are third with a game left to play.

"For us, it's important to stay up there and be happy with where we are going into the semi-final," Stam said.

"It's going to hard and a big battle as all the teams up there are good and have quality individuals."

Newcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles will miss Sunday's final game of the season against Barnsley, as he recovers from a groin operation.

Lascelles, 23, has scored three goals in 47 games to help the Magpies gain promotion back to the Premier League.

He missed the win at Cardiff City last week to prepare for the surgery which will take place on Tuesday.

The former Nottingham Forest centre-back will return for Newcastle's pre-season training on 2 July.

Tracy Barber: How about 1986. A certain Johnny Metgod, scoring a screamer of a free kick against West Ham? 

An overhead free-kick? That must have taken some dexterity?!

Paul Smith: You won't see a better overhead kick than Trevor Sinclair's against Barnsley in 97. 

Daz, Widnes: Andy Cole scored a cracker from the edge of the area against Leicester in '99.  

Blake's seven...sixes in maiden hundred


Still waiting for a contemporary reference but anyway a maiden one-day hundred for Kent's Alex Blake - and it certainly looks like one to remember, taking just 46 balls with eight fours and seven sixes against Somerset at Taunton.

Ruddy released by Canaries


Former England goalkeeper John Ruddy, who made one substitute appearance for England in 2012, tops the list of seven players who will leave Norwich in the summer.

The Canaries, eighth in the Championship and 10 points off the play-off places, are overhauling their squad and will not offer a new deal to the 30-year-old Ruddy, after seven years at the club. 

Sebastien Bassong, Steven Whittaker, Ryan Bennett, Youssouf Mulumbu, Michael Turner and Kyle Lafferty will also leave Carrow Road, the club has confirmed.

'Selby is exceptional'

Steve Davis

Six-time world champion at The Crucible

When we look at the quality of players that are potential winners here, to think there is a dominant character forcing his way through is amazing. 

Selby is an exceptional player and exceptional match player. It is going to take some young player coming through who takes every part of his game and becomes stronger to knock him off his perch. 

We're close to the ceiling of performance now.

On this day...


Six years ago today, John Higgins defeated Judd Trump 18-15 to win the World Championship final at Sheffield. This year the Scotsman was involved in another 18-15 final, but this time was on the wrong end as Mark Selby won the title for the third time in the last four years. We'll look back on that match next.
