http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/36495918 - Koeman leaves Saints to join Everton. Definitely losing him a lot of fans.

Also, the fixtures list is out!

Liverpool's first five games are going to be pretty rough. Crystal Palace's last ten games look terrible for them.

Ouch. Playoff winners Hull City's first game is against champions Leicester. And then they have Man Utd two weeks later. And then Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea all by October 1st. They're doomed to end up rock bottom for at least the first few months of the season, I fear.

More violence in Lille:

If that was Russia's fans, their team may well be expelled. They've already been warned that that will be the consequence of any more drunken misbehaviour.

UEFA Euro 2016 today Ukraine plays Northern Ireland. GO UKRAINE! Virsky Ukrainian National Folk Dance Ensemble, Kyiv, found their unique way to support the Ukrainian National Football Team at UEFA EURO 2016.

Russia might not need kicking out now! Yesterday Slovakia beat them, and England beat Wales today, meaning that Russia have to defeat Wales or they're out.

England need to start Sturridge and/or Vardy. Sterling is massively overrated and Kane hasn't looked great thus far in the Euros. England played so much better in the second half against Wales after Hodson made changes.

^Ukraine lost their first match too. If they also lose their final game, they're out, and you'll probably finish 3rd.

Yeah, with Germany/Poland drawing 0-0 a draw with Germany, a Ukraine win vs Poland could see us get 3rd place and into next round.

Doubt it highly.. but I can dream lol. Just glad to see them there.

Hopefully the rest of the Home Nations & Rep of Ireland go through too.

You mean a POLAND win. Poland would be on 7 pts, Ukraine would be on 1 - and therefore bottom. If Ukraine win, they're on four points, more than you, assuming you don't shock Germany.

Feel really bad for Wales. They did excellently in the first half.

England just curb stomped them in the second half.

Good job, Northern Ireland! I guess it's all over for Ukraine.

Holy crap. Chile 7, Mexico 0

That was a terrible game for Mexico. Chile was at the top of their game and Mexico just did not show up tonight. No pace, no defense, nothing. It's an absolute disaster for Mexico and people are already talking about their manager's future despite a 20+ game winning streak.

Supposedly Mexico's biggest loss in 55 years.

Ochoa was at goal for Mexico and I don't blame him on the majority of the goals. Plenty of defensive lapses by the Mexicans in the game.

I think the 7-0 scoreline doesn't tell the entire story. Yeah, Chile played exceptionally well but Mexico didn't just play poorly, they were horrendous that entire match. It was like after the second goal happened so early on, the players realized how much time was left in the game and that took all the fight out of them. There's a much more interesting story to be had here from the Mexican perspective because...wow, that's not just a team playing poorly, that's something on a very fundamental level going absolutely wrong.

Oh and it's apparently the worst defeat Mexico has ever suffered on a competitive level.

Au revoir, Russia! Wales is beating them 3-0. In the other game, England and Slovakia are tied 0-0. As things stand, that makes the league table Wales 6, England 5, Slovakia 4, Russia 1, so Russia are out. If England win, the league table will be England 7, Wales 6, Slovakia 3, Russia 1. A Slovakia win means the table will be Wales 6, Slovakia 6, England 4, Russia 1. There's about 10 minutes to go.

EDIT: Full time, still 0-0. Wales top the group, England are also through, and Slovakia must wait to discover their fate. Good riddance, Russia!

Wow.. Never expected to see Northern Ireland make a major tournament.. making last 16 is unbelievable. We won't win, but its a lot of fun actually having a team to cheer for once.

Hopefully our Neighbors Republic of Ireland also qualify to the knockouts.

What happened between Argentina and USA today is what happens when a first world country's soccer development system is completely messed up (and poor tactics, *LIKE PLAYING BRADLEY FOR 90 MINUTES*)
