England bow out of Euros, City to sell Tevez and Spurs make move for Sigurdsson
Despite a courageous performance last night, England were defeated 4-2 on penalties by Italy following a 0-0 draw over 120 minutes.
While pundits such as Alan Hansen claimed that England had been "average" throughout the tournament and were "found out" against the more technically gifted Italians, Roy Hodgson refused to blame his men.
Speaking to the BBC, Hodgson stated that he "can’t fault the players."
Winger Theo Walcott, who scored five fantasy football points during the tournament, was also quick to defend his team-mates.
He claimed that England "will be better" in tournaments from now on and that penalty failures Ashley Cole and Ashley Young will both return "stronger" for the ordeal.
Away from the Euros, the Daily Mail is reporting that Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez could be heading to Real Madrid.
Madrid are allegedly preparing a £25 million bid for the Argentinian, who scored just 18 fantasy football points last season.
It’s claimed that City are willing to do business with the Spanish champions as they look to fund a move for Arsenal captain Robin van Persie.
The Daily Mail is also claiming that Tottenham are set to swoop to steal midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson from under Liverpool’s noses as they look to find a direct replacement for Real Madrid and Manchester United target Luka Modric.
Sigurdsson, who scored 29 fantasy football points in just 18 appearances last season, is said to have been offered a more lucrative package by Spurs and is "seriously considering it."
Meanwhile, Sky Sports has broken the news that Rangers players Steven Naismith and Steven Whittaker have refused to transfer to new company The Rangers FC.
Both players have declared themselves to be free agents and are thought to be looking for moves to the Premier League.
Finally, ESPN has reported that Arsenal flop Marouane Chamakh will not be re-joining former side Bordeaux this summer.
The Moroccan striker is expected to leave the Emirates before next season, though Bordeaux club president Jean-Louis Triaud said the French side had no plans to bring him back.
