Roy Hodgson reaction

Spain 2-0 England

England coach Roy Hodgson: "We played against a very good team. It was pretty much as we expected.

"For 70 minutes we held our own and were getting back into it possession-wise.

"But we can't say we were the better team. They were the better team and deserved to win it."

Euro hosts on course

France 2-0 Germany

The football in Paris is over with France completing a 2-0 win. 

Andre-Pierre Gignac, who plays his club football in Mexico, got France's second goal after Olivier Giroud's opener.

France are due to play England at Wembley on Monday. But that is clearly not the big news in France tonight.

If you have just tuned in there are reports of a number of attacks in Paris. Read the latest from BBC News here.

Spain and Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas: "We deserved it, we played some outstanding football. We were always attacking.

"We recovered things we were missing at the last World Cup.

"Tonight we proved we can beat anyone because England are a great squad full of quality players.

"The way we played against them showed our football was impressive."

Player reaction

Spain 2-0 England

England captain and goalkeeper Joe Hart: "It's strange that we played on a Third Division pitch. 

"I'm not making excuses and I might be talking rubbish but I am upset.

"We have played well for a long time and it's difficult when we lose. We need to perform better against France."

Spain 2-0 England

Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas now has 100 clean sheets in international football. Phenomenal!

Belgium live up to #1 billing

European round-up

France and Germany are still playing with the Euro 2016 hosts leading 1-0 thanks to Arsenal's Olivier Giroud.

Belgium's 3-1 win over Italy is an eye-catcher with Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne among the goalscorers.

Robert Lewandowski's dream season continues with two more goals as Poland came from behind to beat Iceland 4-2, while Slovakia held on to beat Switzerland 3-2 and the Czech Republic enjoyed a good night thanks to a 4-1 win over Serbia.

Russia banned

On a very busy evening in sport, Russia's athletics federation has been provisionally suspended by the sport's governing body for its alleged involvement in widespread doping.

The IAAF took action after the publication of an independent World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) report that alleged "state-sponsored doping".

IAAF council members voted by 22-1 in favour of Russia being banned.

Its president Lord Coe said: "The message could not be stronger. This has been a shameful wake-up call."

He added: "It is entirely up to Russia to make changes."

Stay across the BBC for all of the reaction to that breaking story.

Danny Mills

BBC Radio 5 live in Alicante

Spain have been the better side, they have been sharper and quicker. The home side have looked more threatening and they are technically superior. It was a great opportunity for England but ended up with a safe, no risk performance.

England players at full-time

Mario Gaspar's goal was sensational. Check it out. 


Spain 2-0 England

Wayne Rooney hits a shot into the turf, it bounces up and hits the top of the crossbar! He never really had that under control but it nearly went in.

Harry Kane then tests Iker Casillas from 20 yards but it's a comfortable save. 


Spain 2-0 England

Michael Carrick is carried off

A problem for Manchester United here perhaps as Michael Carrick goes down with an injury and has to come off on a stretcher in the end. Looked like his ankle.

Jonjo Shelvey replaces him for stoppage time.

A reality check is the best thing to happen for England, men against boys. Spain aren't even the best by any distance. #bbcfootball

Men against boys. Pathetic from England and from Hodgson. Clear manager lost dressing room as players don't care #HodgsonOut #bbcfootball

De Bruyne on song

European round-up

Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne has struck for Belgium and they now lead Italy 2-1.

It's de Bruyne's 11th goal of a productive season.

But that record is nothing compared with Robert Lewandowski, who now has 27 goals this term after scoring twice in five minutes to give Poland a 3-2 lead over Iceland.

Switzerland haven't thrown in the towel in Slovakia, pulling two goals back to trail 3-2 going into the last 10 minutes.

Massive! What a massive goal this could be. An away goal from Norwich wingerRobbie Bradyas he fires in low from the edge of the box. Through the fog, into the net.

Arjen Robben (81 mins)

Arjen Robben celebrates

Arjen Robben is a brilliant, brilliant player isn't he? He's been doing this for years as he runs away from the defence and slips it home. 

GOAL - Spain 2-0 England

Santi Cazorla (84 mins)

England are seriously unhappy but Spain double their lead through Santi Cazorla. It's a wonderful finish from the Arsenal man as he curls in from 22 yards, the ball kissing the inside of the post on its way in.

Not so sure what the complaints from Joe Hart were all about - perhaps he thought there was an offside in the build-up. 

Spain 1-0 England

It was a la David Platt, but better. A fantastic goal from Mario Gaspar.

England go close now as Harry Kane turns away from his man to shoot wide from an angle.

Wayne Rooney is on for England by the way.

France attacks

Some serious news to bring you I'm afraid from Paris, where France are playing Germany at the Stade de France.

An attack on a bar in the French capital has caused several casualties, French media report.

A gunman using an automatic gun opened fire at the Cambodge restaurant in the capital's 11th district. BFMTV says at least seven people were injured.

Liberation newspaper says a number of people have been killed. There is no official confirmation.

Another attack - an explosion - is reported to have targeted a bar near the Stade de France.

Mario Gaspar goal

What a finish that is! Incredible! And he meant it. Mario Gaspar was the one that won the ball back and he swiveled on it, before smashing on into the far corner past Joe Hart.

GOAL - Spain 1-0 England

Mario Gaspar (72 mins)

Mario Gaspar

Oh yes! What a goal that is from Villarreal right-back Mario Gaspar! He has two in two caps now.

Cesc Fabregas chips a ball over the top of the England defence but there doesn't appear too much danger, but Gaspar throws himself at the ball and somehow hooks an acrobatic volley up and over Joe Hart from an angle. Wonderful goal!

Harry Kane

Harry Kane has not had much to go at tonight - but he has still posed the occasional threat.

Been a tough night for Tottenham's striker in many respects but he has done well with what service he has had.


Spain 0-0 England

Great effort from Harry Kane, shoots high and hard from 22 yards out and it whistles just beyond the post.

Twenty minutes left.

Swiss rolled over

European round-up

Slovakia and Switzerland are both heading for France next summer but it's Slovakia who look in better nick judging by their 3-1 lead over the Swiss in Trnava.

Elsewhere, Poland have equalised to make it 1-1 against Iceland, while Czech Republic now lead Serbia 2-0.


Wales 1-2 Netherlands

So close! Wales almost force a leveller as a great cross from the right is screwed wide on the slide by George Williams! Very close indeed.

That's dangerous from Spain, they work Jordi Alba into space very neatly but his shot at the near post is well saved by Joe Hart.

I am just disappointed with England tonight. Roy Hodgson said there would be conviction and energy. 60 minutes in and we are yet to see any of that.

Nolito twists Kyle Walker into a pretzel and puts a low cross over, Joe Hart does well to punch it out.
