    And that's the end of Sportsday for another Tuesday.

    England manager Gareth Southgate will be facing the media in Germany at around 18:30 GMT, there are five games in Leagues One and Two this evening and a full National League programme too.

    Enjoy and see you all tomorrow! 

  2. Goodbye

    Right, that's us done for the day. Thanks for keeping us company - we'll be back at 08:00 GMT tomorrow with all the build-up to Germany v England and Scotland v Canada. Until then...

  3. On this day in...

    2002: West Brom were awarded three points and a 3-0 win over Sheffield United by the Football Association after the league match between the two was abandoned when the Blades were reduced to six men. Patrick Suffo (below) was sent off for head-butting Derek McInnes.

  4. Another Messi milestone

    Football

    Amazing. There was me thinking that Lionel Messi seemed to be having a fairly quiet season. Just the 41 goals by late March...

    This looks absolutely magnificent. Also feels like Alan Partridge should do the commentary.

  6. Paris only interested in 2024 Olympics

    Olympic Games

    Eiffel Tower

    Paris is only interested in hosting the 2024 Olympics and Paralympics, and not the 2028 Games, says the co-chair of the city's bidding committee.

    There have been  suggestions that the International Olympic Committee may award both the 2024 and 2028 Games in September.

    Paris and Los Angeles are the two cities still in contention to be the host in 2024.

    "2024 is now or never for us," co-chair Tony Estanguet told BBC Sport.

    "We believe we have the strongest offer but it is only available for 2024. We can't host the Games in 2028 because we don't have the project available for 2028."

    This isn't the kind of game we asked for but it's a classic nonetheless - basically cricket in Subbuteo form.

    Just don't come back to us and say 'what's Subbuteo?'

  8. Coventry to leave the Ricoh?

    Football

    Coventry City chairman Tim Fisher says the relegation-threatened League One club are still planning to leave the Ricoh Arena - and share Coventry Rugby's Butts Park Arena.

    He told a Sky Blue Trust supporters' meeting on Monday night that Coventry RFC chairman Jon Sharp has now agreed in principle to the move.

    The Butts Park Arena is currently home to three teams, Coventry RFC, semi-professional rugby league side Coventry Bears and non-league side Coventry United, who play in the Midland Football League Premier Division, having been formed in 2013 by disillusioned Sky Blues fans, in reaction to the move to Northampton.  

    "We weren't able to close a land deal on our own stadium - full stop," Fisher told the meeting.

  9. Klopp surprised with Woodburn call-up

    Football

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he was surprised Wales boss Chris Coleman did not contact him ahead of calling up teenager Ben Woodburn.

    The 17-year-old was  named in the senior squad  for the World Cup qualifier against the Republic of Ireland.

    But his club boss has been left perplexed he was not consulted and believes the call-up has come too early.

    "Actually, I was surprised about this," said Klopp.

    Klopp added: "I don't know exactly how normal it is here.

    "This should not be a criticism, but usually when you call up a player, a 17-year-old player, I thought it would be possible to call me.

    "I'm not sure if he knows him well. He didn't play in the team so far for Coleman I think."

  10. If Top Gear did the Olympics

    Ever heard of car curling? The first tournament was held in Russia at the weekend - with four teams of 10 people each pushed small Russian-made cars towards a target painted on an ice rink.

  11. Taylor learns of opponent

    Boxing

    Katie Taylor

    Katie Taylor will continue her push towards a world-title shot by facing former IBF super-featherweight challenger Milena Koleva in Manchester on Saturday.

    London 2012 gold-medalist Taylor, 30, has fought three times as a professional since November, stopping Italy's Monica Gentili earlier in March.

    Bulgaria's Koleva, 31, was stopped for the first time in her career when contesting the IBF title in January.

    "She has been in with some of the best girls in the world and always pushed them very hard," said Taylor.

    “I headed back to the US the day after the last fight and got straight back into training and sparring for this one. I definitely feel like I’ve made some adjustments and improvements again in the last few weeks.”

  12. South complete whitewash of North

    Cricket

    Leg-spinner Mason Crane took four wickets for one run in 10 balls as the South completed a 3-0 whitewash of the North in the one-day series in Abu Dhabi.

    Chasing 229 to win in, Ben Duckett (37) got the North off to a fast start while Liam Livingstone top-scored with 50 as they moved to 146-2.

    Hampshire's Crane, 20, removed Sam Hain (44), Joe Clarke for a golden duck, Jack Leaning (1) and finally Lancashire all-rounder Livingstone as the North slipped to 157-6.

    They were eventually bowled out for 208 in the final over.

    The game was delayed by almost four hours by steady morning rain which meant the match was reduced to 40 overs per side.

  14. Wilmots new Elephants boss

    Football

    Marc Wilmots

    Former Belgium manager Marc Wilmots has been appointed Ivory Coast manager.

    Wilmots was Belgium coach at both World Cup 2014 and Euro 2016, but was sacked after losing to Wales in the quarter finals.

    Ivory Coast sacked Michel Dussuyer after the Cup of Nations but lead Africa World Cup qualifying zone Group C with four points from two games.

  15. 'No reason why England can't win World Cup'

    Cricket

    England's record wicket-taker James Anderson says it's unlikely he'll return to the one-day squad, although he would be keen on a recall.

    Anderson is returning to full fitness after a shoulder injury and last played an ODI two years ago, at the 2015 World Cup.

    He told BBC Sport's Inzamam Rashid: "I am not far off full fitness and 100%.

    "The England one-day team is a really exciting team to watch at the moment, they have a real opportunity to go on and win tournaments in the future."

    Jimmy Anderson

    Anderson believes that England could win the World Cup in 2019.    

    He added: "Is there a place for me in the team? I’d like to think so but if I’m being brutally honest, with the way the team has progressed in the last 18 months, probably not. The way they play, and have improved, it has been brilliant to watch.

    "There is a serious chance of winning the Champions Trophy this summer in English conditions, and I don’t see why we can’t go on and win the World Cup in a few years’ time."

    My first reaction on seeing this was 'that can't be real'.

    Turns out, it is! This game actually did happen. Amazing stuff.

    Here's the incident that inspired it.

    Paul Drinkhall

    Rio Olympians Paul Drinkhall (above), Liam Pitchford and Sam Walker have all been included in England’s squad for the World Championships.

    The trio won team bronze at the 2016 World Championships but the focus this year is on individual events.

    Completing the squad for the event in Dusseldorf, which begins on 29 May, is David McBeath. All four will play singles and doubles.

    England’s top two women, Kelly Sibley and Tin-Tin Ho, are unavailable for selection, so no women’s squad will go to Germany.
