Maximilian Wittek’s second-half strike condemned an insipid Tottenham to a 1-0 loss against Vitesse in the Europa Conference League. Spurs had won just two of their last seven away games in European competition before Thursday and their struggles on the road showed in a timid opening 45-minute showing. However, the visitors were unfortunate to not […]

Hungary supporters were involved in more ugly scenes as they clashed with police officers at the start of their team’s World Cup qualifier against England on Tuesday night. Hungary fans booed as the teams took the knee before kick-off – there was also a banner expressing opposition to the anti-racism gesture – and it was not long before fighting broke out. 'I think the togetherness - that people see - is there and that does not change based on banners,' England defender Tyrone Mings said of the incident.

Wembley violence follows recent pattern of unpleasant fan behaviour and the roots can be traced back more than a decade

There was an air of inevitability when fighting broke out in the away end during Hungary’s 1-1 draw with England at Wembley on Tuesday night.

Hungary’s fans had been disciplined over their behaviour at four of the previous six games played in front of fans, with homophobic banners seen against Portugal and Germany, and monkey chanting heard against France and England.

Hannes Halldorsson helped Iceland beat England at Euro 2016. Now he is in London to release Cop Secret, his first feature film

By Chris Evans for The Set Pieces

It’s a storyline that would not look out of place on the big screen. The down-on-his-luck goalkeeper who could not play the sport he loves during his younger years due to persistent injuries suddenly finds himself going head-to-head with a global icon. But when Iceland goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson clapped his gloves together in preparation to face a penalty from Lionel Messi, this was not a plot dreamed up by a bigwig director. It was the 2018 World Cup and most definitely real life.

Messi’s penalty was at the perfect height for Halldorsson, who dived to his right and parried the shot away to safety. Messi had been vanquished. “My story – going from a lower-league goalkeeper in Iceland to saving a penalty against...

Players stand side by side with NWSL counterparts, White responds to being dropped and McCabe outshines Miedema

The impact of the allegations of abuse and sexual coercion suffered by NWSL players in the US continues to be felt. At the weekend, players from all teams (excluding those involved in the Manchester derby, and Leicester City who clapped instead) stood in the centre circle linking arms in a show of solidarity with the players who have recently detailed their experiences. A number of Championship teams similarly showed their support following the removal of North Carolina Courage’s head coach, Paul Riley, after Mana Shim and Sinead Farrelly spoke out and the resignation of the NWSL commissioner, Lisa Baird, over her handling of the situation.

A goal that meant nothing also meant everything, because football is about a lot more than football

Very little gets people as excited as football, a fairly embarrassing admission to make given 200,000 years of human history: a bunch of people kick a ball about, then the rest of us go on like it’s something we’ve done ourselves. Except in a way it is, because our clubs were built by us and form part of us, representing where we’re at and what we believe in. So inasmuch as anything makes sense the extent of our love for them makes sense, and when we talk about football what we’re really talking about is love – love for who we are.

I fell for myself in the traditional way: my grandad had a season ticket at Old Trafford in the 40s and 50s so gave the gift of United to my dad, who gave it to me. As such, tales of the Busby Babes were inculcated with the same fervency and pride as those of the various bible lads, all mine and all part of my family history. Happily, the...

Former Tottenham and England playmaker has come through his 2018 cardiac arrest and still loves the ‘beautiful game’

“It’s easy to say it was winning. I was born winning, I wanted to win tiddlywinks against my dad at home, so I had that in me. But I think the thing I enjoyed most about playing football was being able to express myself and be creative. From when I was a kid in the garden with my own imagination to when I was playing at Wembley in a cup final, that was really what I wanted to do, create.”

There aren’t many football players who can be said to have a clear association with an idea, but Glenn Hoddle and creativity is surely one. The Spurs icon played slowly in an era of harum-scarum, he charmed the ball while others attacked it, and he did so not just deliberately but assertively, in a way that Brian Clough said required “moral courage”.
