  9. Uncertainty surrounds Rooney testimonial


    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    There is still no resolution to the uncertainty surrounding Wayne Rooney’s testimonial, despite Manchester United securing direct qualification to the Europa League group phase.

    Rooney is hoping to raise millions of pounds for his chosen charities at his game on 3 August, which was due to be against Everton at Old Trafford.

    However, the testimonial still has not been signed off.

    One of the issues was a clash with the third qualifying round of the Europa League, which was still a possibility for United until their 3-1 win over Bournemouth at Old Trafford.

    In the time it has taken for United to be certain the preferred 3 August date is clear, Everton have sacked their manager.

    Until a replacement for Roberto Martinez is installed, the Toffeemen may not be able to cement their pre-season plans, meaning an even longer wait for Rooney to confirm his game, and less time to put the required arrangements in place.

  10. Upton Park extra game for West Ham Ladies called off

    BBC Sport

    A West Ham Ladies' match has been called off so that the men's win over Manchester United can remain as the last public fixture played at Upton Park.

    The 5 June game was cancelled despite a vote in favour of it going ahead.

    Out of nearly 12,000 fans, 52% were in favour and 48% against the idea, a fundraiser for the Ladies' team said.

    The club said it was responding to supporters' comments and fan feedback on social media.

  12. Sevilla's clean bill of health

    Liverpool v Sevilla (19:45 BST)

    Sevilla, Europa League champions for the past two seasons running, have no new injury worries - with Denmark midfielder Michael Krohn-Dehli out with a long-term knee injury.

    But while tonight's final in Basel will be the last match in Liverpool's season, Sevilla will play again on Sunday, facing Barcelona for the Spanish Cup, the Copa del Rey. 

    Extra time and pens it is then...

  13. Henderson to start? Origi to return?

    Europa League final, Liverpool v Sevilla (19:45 BST)

    Jurgen Klopp's got some pretty big selection decisions to make this afternoon. 

    Does the Liverpool boss start captain Jordan Henderson for the first time since his recovery from a knee injury suffered in early April? 

    Does striker Divock Origi play after returning to training following an ankle injury?

    "I don't expect to start," said Henderson. "I know I've been out a long time and I've only played 25-30 minutes.

    "When I've been injured the team has done very well and played in some big games to get to the final.

    "I'm ready to play as long or as little as the manager wants me to."

  14. The Europa kings

    Sevilla win 2015 Europa League

    Think it'll be a stroll for Liverpool tonight? 

    It might be worth thinking again. Sevilla have serious pedigree in this competition, winning it in the past two seasons and four times in 10 years.

    They had a thrilling 3-2 victory over Ukrainian side Dnipro in Warsaw 12 months ago after beating Benfica 4-2 on penalties in Turin in 2014.  

    In 2007 they defeated Espanyol on penalties at Hampden Park, the year after thrashing Middlesbrough 4-0 in Eindhoven,.

    Plenty more on why Liverpool should fear the Spaniards over here.

  15. Stewart signs up

    Ice Hockey

    Elite League side Coventry Blaze have signed Liam Stewart, son of music legend Rod and former model Rachel Hunter, for the 2016-17 season.

    The London-born, American-bred 21-year-old will count as a foreign import, due to his overseas junior development.

    "My dad loves it," he said. "It's different from soccer, but he loves the intensity of it.

    "He's only an hour and a half away, so he'll be able to get to watch me play more than he's ever done."

  16. Excited about the Euros then?


    We are. BBC Sport is counting down 25 classic moments from the European Championships in the run-up to this summer's tournament in France.

    Today's offering? Greece's unbelievable victory over hosts and favourites Portugal in the final of Euro 2004. Enjoy.

  17. A sea of red

    Liverpool fans in Basel

    When Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was told Basel was "a sea of red" yesterday he delivered the puzzled response of a man locked away in preparation for tonight's Europa League final with Sevilla.

    If he took a walk from Liverpool's hotel this afternoon he would be puzzled no longer - large swathes of the red half of Merseyside have descended on the city and have been claiming vantage points to hang up their flags and also enjoy the rather decent weather.

    Remains to be seen whether Sevilla, led by their perfectionist coach Unai Emery, will be unnerved. They are rather good at this competition, having won it in the last two seasons.

  18. Where it's happening

    Sorry Uefa, but it seems to us all the fun is happening away from the fanzone...

    Although it must take a while to get to the bar...

  19. Celtic close to naming next boss?


    Celtic may decide on their new manager within a couple of days, according to their biggest individual shareholder Dermot Desmond.

    Desmond told the BBC the club has interviewed "in excess of six" candidates, with Brendan Rodgers, 43, known to be among them.

    "We're excited about the managers we've interviewed and we've discussed, and hopefully in the next few days we will decide, and enter negotiations," said Desmond. 

    "There's lots of people - I wouldn't speculate on who is the person at this point in time."
