This was an evening which threatened to see England implode in a cloud of smoke and with it their Euro 2012 hopes. Two goals in quick succession had spun the wheel of fate in Sweden’s favour and Roy Hodgson was left looking on with as his men attempted to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. That this outcome did not occur was simply astounding. England’s best qualities came to the fore and an unlikely hero rode to their rescue. […]

AC Milan head into the off season wondering what could have been as they bowed out of the Champions League at the quarterfinal stage against Barcelona and finished second in Serie A behind Juventus by only four points.

As Juventus remained unbeaten throughout Serie A and finished in top spot; Buffon kept 21 clean sheets in 35 appearances. His finest moment this season was an outstanding near-post save […]

Ahead of tomorrow night’s mouth-watering Champions League semi-final between Barcelona and Milan, former Rossoneri striker Marco Simone has claimed that, “Milan have 50 per cent chance to win the second leg against Barcelona in my opinion.” Simone would be right were the game to be decided by the flip of a coin.
