Iker Casillas hints at retirement after Spain loss in Euro 2016

Category: Uncategorized

After going uncapped for Spain in Euro 2016 – with Vincente del Bosque favoring David de Gea – longtime goalkeeper Iker Casillas appears to be hinting at the end of his career in international football.

Taking to Twitter the morning after Spain fell 2-0 to Italy in the Euro 2016 knockout round, Casillas posted a video of a famous scene from Rambo along with a message to his fans – seemingly hinting that his time with Spain was over.

“A pride felt the affection of the people in #GraciasCasillas today and always all with Spain” – the message read, per Squawka.

Casillas is the most capped player in Spain’s history by a wide...

Euro 2016: Roy Hodgson hits back at ‘nonsense’ criticism of England decisions

Category: Uncategorized

England boss Roy Hodgson has responded to criticism of his team selection for his side’s clash with Slovakia last week as they prepare to face Iceland.

Hodgson opted to make six changes to the line-up for their last group game, which in turn arguably played its part in their goalless draw.

England ended in second place in Group B, and will now face a bitterly difficult run to get to the final of Euro 2016 with the likes of France, Spain or Germany waiting in the coming rounds.

However, an irritated Hodgson hit back at critics after coming under fire for his decision to make so many changes to his side for the Slovakia, and was clearly unimpressed with what had been said about him and the game.

“I accept so many nonsenses that are said to me and written that I don’t often get a chance to pu...

Video: Portugal humbled by brilliant volley from 37-year-old ex-WBA player in Euro 2016 crunch match

Category: Uncategorized

England might have Zoltan Gera to thank for avoiding a last-16 clash against old tormentors Portugal.

The former West Bromwich Albion and Fulham midfielder scored a wonderful half-volley to give Hungary a 1-0 lead which could send Cristiano Ronaldo and company off England’s path at Euro 2016.

The 37-year-old veteran always had an eye for goal in his time in England, scoring 45 times for the Baggies and Cottagers, but not many would have been better than this sweet left-footed strike.

Ex-Manchester United winger Nani equalised for Portugal three minutes before half-time, which means, as it stands, the ...

(Video) Man United goalkeeper stunned as he concedes first goal of Spain’s Euro 2016 campaign

Category: Uncategorized

David de Gea is one of the true clean sheet artists of European football, but no goalkeeper can keep the net empty forever as the Man United goalkeeper learned firsthand with Spain before the end of the first half against Croatia.

It certainly wasn’t the most conventional method of getting a goal for Croatia’s Nikola Kalinic, but it was without a doubt one of the most unique ones in recent memory – and all Spain could do was shrug as they went into the half and hope that they could reclaim the lead in the final 45.

The conceded goal was the first one ever for De Gea as the stopper for Spain. But who’s to say it wasn’t the last?
