Sunderland beat Manchester United 2-1 in the Capital One Cup semi-final first leg.

It was only the first leg of this tie, but Sunderland handed Manchester United their third defeat in a row in all competitions, the first time this has happened since 2001. Ryan Giggs' own goal in first-half injury time had put Sunderland ahead but Nemanja Vidic levelled in the second half. Fabio Borini's penalty won the game after Tom Cleverley was penalised for a challenge on Adam Johnson, and David Moyes is now officially under pressure. Gus Poyet will be delighted and must hope this form can be carried in to the weekend as the Black Cats face a huge match at Fulham.

Southampton are set to join the race for Saido Berahino after selling Sadio Mane to Liverpool.

Berahino is reportedly on the market and Stoke City have been discussed as the top destination for the 22-year-old English player. Southampton will now join the sweepstakes and try to pry the youngster away. He would be a great addition to already signed Nathan Redmond and could play alongside Graziano Pelle.

Ronald Koeman has already started exploring the option of bringing Maarten Stekelenburg or Fraser Forster to Everton.

Koeman only has Joel Robles between the posts right now and it's his one of his top priorities to land a goalkeeper this summer. Fraser Forster would be an automatic starter at Everton, while Stekelenburg will likely be deployed as a backup. Koeman has the money to make both of them a reality, it's just going to come down to a matter of importance as to which position to wants to spend up at.

West Ham have made a €35m bid for Marseille striker Michy Batshuayi.

Batshuayi is one of the more sought after strikers this summer and West Ham have the money now that they've moved to their new stadium. The new home comes with big expectations, and Batshuayi would be a perfect fit striker-hungry West Ham. Andy Carroll would likely be a second stringer if the move went through, while Diafra Sakho would likely leave.

The latest reports suggest Crystal Palace have triggered a release clause for Newcastle United winger Andros Townsend with the 24-year-old reportedly considering a move to Selhurst Park.

Townsend arrived at St. James’ Park in January for a fee believed to be in the region of £12million from Tottenham and was one of the few bright spots for a United side which dropped down to the second tier of English football. Scoring four times from 12 starts, Townsend created 26 chances and provided two assists – performances which almost earned him a place at Euro 2016. Earlier this month Townsend was said to have met with Rafa Benitez to discuss a new and improved deal, in return for the removal of his trigger clause, but his time Tyneside could now be coming to an end. The Guardian claim Palace are targeting up-to three players including Belgium and Marseille striker Michy Batshuayi after Marouane Chamakh and Emmanuel Adebayor were released.

Liverpool are expected to announce the signing of Senegalese star Sadio Mane today after agreeing a £30million move from managerless Southampton.

Following extended negotiations and the signing of Nathan Redmond from Norwich, Mane has been granted a move to Anfield in a deal which could ultimately be worth up-to £36million. Mane was pictured having his medical on Monday and becomes the third high profile departure from St Marys joining Victor Wanyama [Tottenham] and Ronald Koeman [Everton] as the south coast side once again proves itself to be a hive of summer transfer activity. Mane arrives off the back of another solid season [11-goals and six assists], if not, frustratingly inconsistent on occasions to become the fourth addition to the Liverpool squad. Mane is the fifth Southampton player to arrive on Merseyside within the past two-seasons following in the footsteps of Dejan Lovren, Nathaniel Clyne, Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert.

Ashley Williams is expected to be available to face Belgium in one of the biggest games in Wales national team history.

The Swansea City captain went down with a shoulder injury after colliding with Jonny Williams against Northern Ireland, but manager Chris Coleman said he expects the defender to be fit for the quarterfinals: "We think it was when he fell and landed on his hand with a straight arm which had an impact on his shoulder," Coleman said. "But he is okay. Ashley will be fine. It sounds better actually, that he would play with a dislocated shoulder - and he would if we let him. But it was not...'I would not say he was a worry or a doubt, but we know we have to look after him. I would be surprised if he does not make the game.''

Gylfi Sigurdsson and Iceland have continued their dream tournament with a 2-1 knockout stage win over England on Monday and will face France in the quarterfinals.

England won a 4th minute penalty through Raheem Sterling that Wayne Rooney put into the bottom right corner of the Iceland goalkeeper's net and it looked like the giants would slay the minnows without much trouble. From there the script flipped almost immediately as Iceland immediately came down the pitch after the restart and won a throw. From a long throw, they got a header into the box that was rocketed past Joe Hart by Ragnar Sigurdsson. A mere 12 minutes later Iceland took the lead on a shot from the top of the box by Kolbeinn Sigthorsson that Joe Hart got his left hand on but couldn't keep out of the net. From there it was a dire attempt by the Three Lions to come back that never looked likely to succeed. Another in a long line of failed international competitions for the English.

Italy may have entered Euro 2016 without much fanfare or backing from the pundits, but they are turning heads with each passing match, today completely outclassing two-time defending European champions Spain, 2-0.

Antonio Conte, who will be taking over at Chelsea this season, will have plenty of hype when he begins his career at Stamford Bridge, as he and the Italian side were tactically brilliant, frustrating a Spain side that normally excels at possession and passing. Emanuele Giaccherini, who has been fantastic in the Euro fantasy game, put up another fine score by grabbing a clean sheet and assisting the first goal, scored by Giorgio Cheillini after David de Gea spilled the initial free kick attempt. The second goal didn't come until added time, when Graziano Pelle struck one on the volley when Italy were on the counter-attack. Thought to be one of the weaker sides Italy have brought to a major tournament in quite some time, they prove again that they are masterful at tournament play.

Spain's tournament ends more quickly than most would have imagined, getting knocked out in the round of 16 by a magnificent Italian side with a 2-0 loss.

This was a really tough draw for the first round of the knockout stage as two of the historically best tournament teams went up against each other and one had to go home. It was deservedly Spain that did, as Italy outplayed them thoroughly. David De Gea came up with two huge saves in the first 11 minutes but a save from a free kick was not cleared away and Italy pounces on the loose ball to take the lead. De Gea may have been at fault for the goal, but he also single-handedly kept Spain in it with a couple more top-drawer stops. In the end, the Spanish attack could not break down Italy, with just an occasional flash of hope for Andres Iniesta, while PL players like David Silva and Cesc Fabregas offered very little. Gerard Pique had a chance to level the score on 89 minutes but his shot from 8 yards was stopped by veteran Gianluigi Buffon. Italy then added a second goal moments later to put the game to bed.

Belgium didn't look great in the group stage but they exploded when it mattered in the knockout stages with a 4-0 win over Hungary today.

It was four goals from four players as Belgium went up early through Toby Alderweireld in the tenth minute. They didn't score again until late but then the floodgates opened with goals from Batshuayi, Hazard and Carrasco. On the easier side of the bracket, Belgium have to be the current favorites to at least reach the finals.

Alexis Sanchez wasn't on the field for penalties but he and his teammates won the Copa America for the second consecutive summer in penalties over Argentina.

It was a similar script to last summer with New Jersey playing the role of Santiago. It was a hotly contested match that saw two first half red cards and numerous yellows. There were no goals but plenty of talking points. Ultimately it came down to penalties where Arturo Vidal and Lionel Messi traded misses and Lucas Biglia had his attempt saved to make the difference in the match.
