Ibra released, but still might get new deal

Simon Stone

BBC Sport

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will complete his rehabilitation from cruciate knee ligament surgery at Manchester United's Carrington training complex.

The 35-year-old is out of contract on 30 June and there was no mention of another deal being offered when Ibrahimovic's name did not appear on the Premier League retained list this afternoon.

That only proved nothing had been offered by 29 May.

It is understood there has been no change to that situation.

However, the fact Ibrahimovic will remain in Manchester to recover from an injury sustained in April and which is not likely to see him play again in 2018, indicates a new United contract is a possibility.

No guarantees have been made by the club though and evidently the extent of the forward's recovery and United's form in the first part of the 2017-18 campaign will be decisive.

More on this in a mo...

BreakingIbrahimovic not given new Man Utd deal

Manchester United have not offered striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic a new contract and the Swede will leave the club when his deal expires on 30 June.

The 35-year-old agreed a one-year contract, with an option for second season, last summer.

But the extension had not been triggered by the time the Swede suffered his season-ending knee ligament injury in April.

The Premier League's retained list was released earlier this afternoon.

U20's World Cup final: Can Venezuela shock England?

England will bid to win a global football tournament for the first time in 51 years when they face Venezuela Under-20s in the South Korean city of Suwon on Sunday (11:00 BST).

Currently ranked 58th in the world by Fifa, Venezuela have never qualified for a full World Cup and their senior men's team will not make Russia 2018.

Reaching the final of the Fifa Under-20s World Cup is Venezuela's greatest achievement in world football.

So who are they, how do they play and who are the key men England must be wary of?

'We need to deny England possession'

Scotland v England (Sat, 17:00 BST)

Scotland boss Gordon Strachan asked by BBC Radio 5 live's John Murray about Saturday's opponents:

"They're only a threat if they've got the ball more than us. We have to make sure the areas they want to play in are not there.

"England are a rounded team. They don't have to rely on just one or two players. If you can stop the passes and crosses, and if we have more of the ball, then that will help.

"If we've got the ball then we've got players that can hurt anybody."

Alex Danson has been named England women's captain for this summer's major international hockey events.

Danson, 32, will lead the side for this weekend's international matches against Argentina and Holland in London.

She will also skipper the team at July's Hockey World League in South Africa and the EuroHockey Championships in Holland the following month where England will be defending champions.

Danson won gold with Great Britain at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Being a footballer has its perks....

...On top of getting paid handsomely to travel the world and kick a ball around, there are also countless corporations just waiting to shower you with more money in the hope of getting you to flog their products.

Who they are and what they sell doesn’t seem to matter that much to players, when they’re being offered mouth-watering wads of cash for less than a day's work.

Our colleagues at BBC Three have put together some of the weirder and more embarrassing brands and products the world's top football players have decided, in their wisdom, to endorse including that incredibly awkward Independence Day sketch from Wayne Rooney and other Manchester United players...

'It is a huge challenge'

Scotland v England (Sat, 17:00 BST)

Charlie Mulgrew

Scotland defender Charlie Mulgrew says the hosts are ready to take on England despite being "massive underdogs" for Saturday's World Cup qualifier.

The Scots have won only one of their last 10 meetings - and lost the return fixture 3-0 at Wembley in November.

But Mulgrew insists the Scots are "feeling good" after some hard training sessions before the Hampden Park match.

"It is a huge challenge ahead, England are a great team and we will be massive underdogs," said the Blackburn player.

The absence of Hal Robson-Kanu, one of Wales’ Euro 2016 heroes, is another blow to Chris Coleman who is already without star man Gareth Bale.

Sam Vokes now looks certain to start on his 50th appearance for his country and Tom Lawrence may have a good chance of starting too.

But there’s no doubt that Wales’ resources will be stretched to the limit for arguably their toughest assignment of the group.
