  10. Wolves warned by RFL

    Rugby League

    Warrington have been given a formal warning by the Rugby Football League about the behaviour of their fans during the Cheshire derby at Widnes over Easter.

    Play was stopped and the referee took both teams off the pitch after a smoke canister was thrown onto the field of play in the early stages of the match on 2 April.

    getty

    Genk appealed to FIFA's dispute resolution chamber seeking a 'training compensation' fee but were denied as they had not offered a contract to Origi before his departure.

    However, the club has now successfully argued to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) that they could not offer Origi a contract under Belgian law because he was under the age of 16 at the time.

    This summer they have scaled back the travelling during their four matches in the International Champions Cup in the USA.

    Van Gaal said: "The problem was when we went to America last year we didn't have so many times to train because we had to fly and travel a lot. Therefore it was not good."

    Mo Farah

    Former world champion hurdler Colin Jackson says Mo Farah should do what he thinks is right, when it comes to his relationship with coach Alberto Salazar.

    Farah pulled out of a meeting in Birmingham after a BBC documentary alleged that Salazar had practiced doping techniques with other athletes. Salazar denies the allegations.

    "Mo, get all the information you possibly can and do ultimately what's best for you, because your athletics career belongs to you," said Jackson. "And if you're happy with your circumstance then you keep with it; if you're unhappy and unsure it's going to have a real knock-on effect in your mind."

    The England and Wales Cricket Board has invited tenders for the allocation of major matches between 2020 and 2023, and the Ageas Bowl is the only Test ground in the country not to have staged an Ashes match.

    "I believe the new administration at the ECB will be very fair and indiscriminate in the way they select international grounds in the future," said Bransgrove.

    Uefa had ordered Friday's match to be played behind closed doors as punishment for fan violence and racist incidents when Croatia played Norway earlier in the qualifying campaign.

    A swastika, however, appeared to be visible on the pitch at the ground, which is the home of Croatian top-flight side Hajduk Split, and Uefa said they would decided whether to take action for "racist behaviour" by 16 July.

    Durham 269-8 v Sussex

    BBC Newcastle's Martin Emmerson at Arundel:

    "On his first day on loan from Surrey, Tim Linley has taken five wickets in an innings for Sussex.

    "It was only the sixth five-for of his career and he completed it with the wickets of Ryan Pringle and Paul Coughlin in the space of two balls during the afternoon.

    "But 60 not out from Gordon Muchall has helped Durham to their first batting bonus point since 3 May."

  30. Essex batsmen build on lead

    Derbyshire 148, Essex 318-4

    BBC Essex's Paul Newton at Chelmsford:

    "Essex continued to press home their advantage in the afternoon session, despite Derbyshire making breakthroughs when Essex's top four were all seemingly set to post big scores.

    "Tom Westley made a scratchy 43 before the worthy Wayne White squeezed an in-ducker between bat and pad and Ravi Bopara posted a 104-ball 50 with a sumptuous straight drive for four but White quickly had his revenge thanks to a fine second slip catch by Wes Durston.

    "But the visitors have yet to take two wickets in quick succession and Jesse Ryder and Ryan ten Doeschate have played some handsome shots in their unbroken 31 run partnership at tea."

    The 2009 US Open champion played three matches in Sydney at the start of the year and then attempted another comeback in March, losing his first-round match in Miami.

    Nottinghamshire 410, Somerset 200

    BBC Somerset's Stephen Lamb at Taunton:

    "A sensational return of 7-56 on debut for off spinner Matthew Carter put Nottinghamshire firmly in charge on day two of their County Championship match against Somerset at Taunton.

    "Only Tom Abell, who carried his bat through the Somerset innings for 76, and James Hildreth, who in making 41 passed 1,000 first class runs for the season, provided any firm resistance as the hosts were bowled out for just 200, 210 runs short of the Notts total.

    "There were two wickets for Luke Wood and one for Jake Ball in a session that saw the loss of eight Somerset wickets, before Nottinghamshire elected not to enforce the follow-on."

    The venue will host this year's US Open, which starts on Thursday, and has a particularly perilous bunker on the 18th hole.

    It will be the first time a major has been played at the course near Seattle, and views on the new venue appear mixed.

    Allen Davidson: Sublime. I remember it well, me and the old man watching the game on a brilliant summer's day. Heartbroken when he scored but at the same time delighted at the genius we just witnessed. The England teams of the mid 90's were brilliant to watch.

    And a last little snippet from Mark Warburton before he disappears into the sunset:

    "Our job is to move the club forward as quickly as possible," he said.

    "Brentford used the smallest number of players last season - 24. I prefer lean squads. If we can produce academy players, fantastic, but they have to be good enough.

    "We like players who enjoy possession. We like players who enjoy the football, who don't give it away cheaply. Our job is to fill the stadium."

    Rangers unveil new boss

    More from new Rangers boss Mark Warburton: "I realise the playing squad is quite lean. I like working with younger players but they have to be able to play in front of 45,000 people.

    "Any club will tell you, the academy should be the heartbeat of the club. We will give the boys a pathway to progress.

    "We have to create the support network. We have to prepare for the longer term. The word 'value' is very important to us."

  48. Horton falls on stroke of lunch for Lancs

    Leicestershire 207, Lancashire 91-1

    BBC Radio Leicester's Richard Rae at Old Trafford:

    "Lancashire openers Paul Horton and Karl Brown raised a 50 stand for the first time in 11 innings when the league leaders began their reply to Leicestershire's first-innings score of 207.

    "In fact they did rather better than that, extending their partnership to 91 before Horton drove a little airily at a delivery from Rob Taylor and turned to see his former team-mate Andrea Agathangelou take a brilliant diving catch away to his right at second slip.

    "The wicket will have made lunch a little more palatable for Leicestershire skipper Mark Cosgrove, who had made his frustration uncomfortably apparent when Charlie Shreck dropped a couple short outside off-stump and was despatched for consecutive boundaries by Horton."

    The match in Manchester is starting at 12:30 BST for all four days.

    Warrington have just five days to prepare for Friday's trip to Hull KR - Smith had just 18 fit first-team players to choose from for Sunday's defeat at Huddersfield.

    "You don't have to be a genius to work out why - the short turnarounds are killers," he told BBC Radio Merseyside. "All of us have got small squads in numbers so we're all getting tested at different stages.

    Maybe it's Archie Gemmill's famous strike for Scotland at the 1978 World Cup, or David Beckham's iconic free-kick against Greece? Perhaps Gerry Armstong's goal against Spain in the 1982 finals? Or Mark Hughes' scissors kick for Wales against the same opposition?

  134. 'One of the best ever'

    Football

    According to former England captain Gary Lineker (for the benefit of younger readers, he's the chap who presents Match of the Day), Jack Wilshere's strike against Slovenia was one of the best England goals ever scored.

    Wilshere had not scored in 27 caps before his brace put Roy Hodgson's side back on track to extend their 100% record in qualifying for next summer's European Championship in France.

    Lineker told BBC Radio 5 live: "Wilshere scored two breathtaking goals. I'm sure he hit the same square of the net on both occasions. Let's put it this way - if we had a top 10 he'd be in it."

    Which leads us on to today's debate...

  135. Bang in form

    A nice stat... which we won't spoil by mentioning that back then, that last unbeaten England team - managed by Graham Taylor - went on to crash out of the 1992 European Championships in dismal style, not even reaching the knockout stage. But we won't mention that.

  136. England march on

    Football

    So, seeing as all the papers are talking about it, let's get straight to England business.

    Two fantastic left-footed strikes from Jack Wilshere - both arrowing into the same top corner - plus a 48th international goal for captain Wayne Rooney helped England beat Slovenia 3-2 and maintain their perfect record in the Euro 2016 qualifiers.

    "It was an England display that will have given manager Roy Hodgson much pain before the pleasure of victory, some slick passing and lively attacking being mixed with dreadful defending that would invite greater punishment should it be repeated against a higher calibre of opposition than Slovenia," writes BBC Sport's chief football writer Phil McNulty.

    Something other than just England in The Guardian and a report on the horrific collision between Rory Burns and Moises Henrique during Surrey's T20 Blast game against Sussex. We'll have more on that shortly.

    Despite scoring two blinders, Jack Wilshere can't escape some of his past controversies, as this headline demonstrates.

    Mirror

    The Mirror

    As you'd expect, the morning papers are dominated by England's win in Slovenia. Wayne Rooney, who must surely have some nasty grass burns on his knees after this slide, gets the bulk of the praise in the Mirror.

    There's also a tale suggesting Chelsea have agreed terms with Falcao, the striker set to head to Stamford Bridge from Monaco on a season-long loan.

  142. Morning all

    So, Jack Wilshere is a hero again (assuming he doesn't break into an abusive sing-song as the England team arrive back at the airport).

    He scored a couple of belters and captain Wayne Rooney edged closer Bobby Charlton's goalscoring record as England beat Slovenia to make it six wins from six in their Euro 2016 Group E qualifiers.

    All the reaction to that, plus all the breaking sports news and the best of what's doing the round on social media.

    It can mean only one thing - welcome to another week of Sportsday.
