The Latest Football Action
England Squad Named
The England squad has been named for the upcoming Euro qualifier against Slovenia, on the 15 November. England manager Roy Hodgson has included the in-form Saido Berahino in his 26-man team for the first time. The West Brom striker has impressed this season with seven goals.
Other notable inclusions come in the form of Stewart Downing and Theo Walcott, both of whom have been absent from the international set-up for some time.
Champions League Round-up
It was not a good round of Champions League fixtures for any of the English contingent in the competition this year.
Manchester City have left themselves with a lot of work to do after a 2-1 home defeat to CSKA Moscow – a match that saw them finish with nine men after Yaya Toure and Fernandinho both saw red.
Chelsea missed an opportunity to snatch all three points away to Maribor after being awarded a late penalty, which was missed by Eden Hazard.
Liverpool fell to Real Madrid in a match that would later stoke some controversy after Liverpool manager Brendan Rodger fielded a weakened side. Despite this, they only lost 1-0 to a first half goal from Karin Benzema.
And lastly, Arsenal squandered a three goal lead at home to Anderlecht to finish 3-3.
Galatasaray Charged for Crowd Trouble
The Champions League tie between Dortmund and Galatasaray had to be stopped twice because of crown trouble. It is alleged that Galatasaray fans threw firecrackers.
Galatasaray have subsequently been charged by UEFA for a second time, after they were fined for throwing flares against Arsenal earlier in their Champions League campaign.
