  2. O'Neill 'hasn't given a second thought' to Scotland job

    Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill played down suggestions he might want the Scotland job if it became available.

    O'Neill, who lives in Edinburgh, insisted he had "not given it a second thought" when he spoke to reporters before his side's friendly against Croatia on Tuesday. 

    Scotland boss Gordon Strachan is under pressure as his side have made a poor start to their World Cup qualifiers. 

    "I'd rather not give a comment on that situation at the minute," said O'Neill.

    "First of all, there's someone in that job who I have a huge amount of respect for, who is a manager I played under (at Coventry).

    "It's probably the fact I live in Scotland is a bigger driving factor of that than anything else."

  4. Taylor to fight Kopinska in pro debut

    Katie Taylor will fight Poland's Karina Kopinska in her professional debut at Wembley's SSE Arena on 26 November.

    Ireland's London 2012 gold medallist Taylor, 30, will fight 27-year-old Kopinska at super-featherweight.

  5. Has Verstappen joined the greats?

    More than 900 Formula 1 races have been held since 1950, yet very few are rooted in the collective consciousness of fans.

    Monaco 1984 is one, so is Donington 1993. Then there's Barcelona 1996, Silverstone 2008 and Nurburgring 1968. All wet-weather races. All exceptional.

    Mention these grands prix to F1 devotees and they will nod approvingly, because these were occasions when a driver delivered something remarkable that marked him out as a cut above his peers.

    In the case of Brazil 2016, we may well have another entry to that list - and the man responsible was a 19-year-old named Max Verstappen.

  6. The man Pele once called 'my successor'

    Former Ivory Coast striker Laurent N'dri Pokou died on Sunday at the age of 69.

    With 14 goals in two Africa Cups of Nations, he was the tournament's all-time top scorer from 1970 until 2008 when Samuel Eto'o broke his record.

  7. 'I will find you. And I will suggest Ireland should host the World Cup'

    Liam Neeson has narrated Ireland's video in their campaign to host the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

    The 'Ready For The World' video will be shown at Tuesday's bid unveiling at the Aviva Stadium. 

    The film star of the Taken trilogy has waived any potential fee.

    South Africa and France are the other candidates to host the tournament.

  8. Wait for Eremenko answers goes on

    Uefa has delayed a ruling in the unexplained disciplinary case about CSKA Moscow and Finland midfielder Roman Eremenko. 

    Nobody has revealed what he has been accused of.

    Finland's FA withdrew the 29-year-old from their squad during the last international break, saying he was suspended for a month before a Uefa hearing.

    That month has passed but Uefa told the Associated Press it has been extended until 19 November and "the decision... is expected to be announced by the end of this week".

    Eremenko has missed nine games, including Champions League matches and World Cup qualifiers.

  9. Swindon owner takes over Irish club

    Swindon Town chairman and owner Lee Power has taken control of League of Ireland First Division side Waterford United.

    The former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international said: "I am delighted to be involved with a club of such great potential and one which has a wonderful footballing history. I see this as a very exciting, long-term project."

  10. Video replays to be used in Italy game

    Video replay referee

    Video replays will be used for key decisions as part of a semi-live trial in Italy's friendly with Germany on Tuesday.

    Two video assistant referees will look at goals scored, penalties awarded, red cards and mistaken identities as part of a semi-live trial.

    The referee will not be able to review the footage on a pitchside monitor.

    Fifa president Gianni Infantino said in April he hoped the 2018 World Cup in Russia would be the first tournament to use the technology.

  11. Former manager quits professional football for teaching job

    Chris Todd

    "It's a bit of security. The game in general is starting to change drastically regarding managers, it's becoming cutthroat at times."

    Chris Todd, who played over 300 professional games, ran out at Wembley three times - once just months after overcoming leukaemia - and guided a non-league team to the third round of the FA Cup, is now working at a further education centre at the age of 35.

    Find out more about his reasoning here.

  12. Cotter released as Scotland coach 'too early'

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Gavin Hastings on the decision to replace Scotland coach Vern Cotter with Gregor Townsend: "It does seem early I must admit.

    "Gregor has done a terrific job for Glasgow and I'm sure he'll come in to the team and do very, very well.

    "There is a feeling he (Cotter) is going a couple of years too early but that decision has been taken and certainly I think the players will be very keen to try and get some further success whilst Vern is still in charge of the team.”

    Cotter, who is going to become Montpellier boss, hands over to Glasgow Warriors' Townsend in June.

  13. Dundalk set up Brentford friendly

    Irish champions Dundalk will play a friendly with Brentford at the Championship club's training ground on Wednesday to keep their fitness up for the Europa League.

    The Republic of Ireland's domestic season ended earlier this month so they would have had no game in 18 days by the time they host AZ Alkmaar on Thursday next week.
