Manchester United got the three goals it needed to overcome Olympiokos' 2-0 first leg lead from Robin van Persie as they advanced to the Round of Eight.

There are no two ways about it, going out to Olympiokos would have been a disaster for United in a season already verging on disaster. Robin van Persie hasn't been nearly as influential in his second Old Trafford season but he rescued his team's Champions League fortunes as he scored a hat trick. We have seen glimpses of the player we saw over the last two seasons but it remains to be seen if the Dutchman can build on today's three goals in the Premier League and against a stronger quarter final Champions League opponent.

It appears as though Stoke City will emerge as the victor in the Premier League race to sign Saido Berahino this summer.

Reports across England claim West Bromwich Albion has accepted a £16 million bid for the 22-year-old as the Potters will offer a long-term contract and a wage package worth £70,000-a-week. The Baggies originally shot down Stoke City's offer of £15 million earlier this week in the hopes of getting more in return for Berahino. But after failing to land a better deal, they came back to the bargaining table. Berahino scored only four Premier League goals last season after 14 the season prior, drawing £20 million-plus bids from Spurs and Newcastle.

Germany put on perhaps the most dominant performance by any one country in any one match thus far in Euro 2016, carving up Slovakia 3-0, punching their ticket to the quarterfinal.

A very positive display by the Germans that has to leave spectators thinking they may be the favorites to win this tournament. In the 8th minute, Toni Kroos sent a cross in that was headed away but into the path of Jerome Boateng and the center back fired it low and hard to score the opener. Near halftime, Julian Draxler crossed one to Mario Gomez who was camped out in the six yard box and he finished from short range. The Germans seemed to preserve their energy in the second half, concentrating more on possession, but, just after the hour mark, they put the game to bed when Draxler was left unmarked on a corner kick and fired home on the volley. The only negative came from Mesut Ozil, who was unable to convert a penalty chance, but he was doing fine otherwise in open play.

Swansea City have reached an agreement with Eredivisie side Ajax for the transfer of center back Mike van der Hoorn for a fee of around £2m.

The 23-year-old Dutch defender will travel to Wales this week to hash out the terms of his deal with the Swans, but, unless there is some sort of unforeseen faux pas, he will become the first signing of the summer for Franseco Guidolin. van der Hoorn would not likely be an automatic starter from the jump for Swansea, but Federico Fernandez would seem the likeliest to be under threat with Ashley Williams a mainstay as the club captain. The Jacks still have Jordi Amat in the mix as well. It will be a situation to monitor in preseason as there could be a bargain player to emerge as Williams' partner this coming fantasy season.

Republic of Ireland looked to be in line to upset host France with an early goal by Robbie Brady, but things fell apart for them in the second half and France would score twice unanswered to win, 2-1.

It was the perfect start for Republic of Ireland when Southampton's Shane Long was tripped in the box by Paul Pogba, allowing Brady to step up for a spot kick. He fired it home with great accuracy and pace. Ireland outplayed France in the first half, winning 50/50 challenges and putting pressure on a shaken French defense. Everything changed in the second half though as Ireland began to tire and France would put two past them in quick succession, then were given a man advantage when Shane Duffy was sent off trying to keep another goal from scoring.

France were behind for the majority of the match, but a brace inside of four minutes by Antoine Griezmann turned things around, and they were able to advance to the quarterfinals with a 2-1 win over Republic of Ireland.

It was the worst possible start for the host country, as they handed Republic of Ireland a penalty chance which was converted, inside the first three minutes, the quickest penalty scored in the history of the tournament. France went into the halftime looking the weaker side, but some tactics were changed for the second half, and they payed off. Most important was shifting Griezmann to a central role, playing behind Olivier Giroud. Just after the hour mark, Griezmann leveled the match, heading home a fine cross from Manchester City right back Bacary Sagna. Just a few minutes later, Olivier Giroud headed a ball into Griezmann's path and he sizzled it past the Irish keeper. He nearly made it a hat trick within five minutes, but Shane Duffy fouled him and was sent off for the infraction. France couldn't distance themselves from then on, but they allowed Republic of Ireland virtually no chance to search for an equalizer.

Chelsea's Cesar Azpilicueta is reportedly wanted by a number of big European clubs.

It's unlikely that Chelsea will sell Azpilicueta, who is 26 years old and just entering his prime. Some of the rumors are saying that Jose Mourinho may be interested in Azpilicueta, but it's hard to image Chelsea selling to a rival. The defender will likely be a Chelsea player next season, so draft him as you normally would.

Romelu Lukaku has left his future in the hands of his agent - Mino Raiola.

There are rumors sending Lukaku to Chelsea or Manchester United, but it is reportedly going to come down to Lukaku's agent as to where he ends up next season. The striker has previously stated he wants to play in the Champions League, and Chelsea wouldn't be able to provide that, but money always speaks louder.

Gareth Bale served in a great cross that force a bad touch from Gareth McAuley and ended up as the only goal of the match.

It wasn't a great match as far as entertainment value. Northern Ireland were intent on making it a grind of a match with few chances in either direction. It nearly worked but Gareth Bale produced a moment of magic that would have been guided home by Hal Robson-Kanu had McAuley not intervened unsuccessfully first. Wales are now on to the quarterfinals of Euro 2016

Southampton have announced the signing of winger Nathan Redmond.

The Norwich winger joins the Saints on a five-year deal scheduled to keep him at St Mary's until 2021. The youngster has a bright future ahead of him and was very impressive for Norwich last season, despite failing to keep them in the Premier League. Redmond will likely start and is a decent mid to late round fantasy pick.

Xherdan Shaqiri delivered what has to be the goal of the tournament so far to get Switzerland level with Poland, but Poland would win in a penalty shootout, 1-1 (5-4 pens).

It was an entertaining affair with shots aplenty from both sides throughout the match, though the finishing was not there for the most part. Poland took the lead in the first half, as a cross by Kamil Grosicki in the 39th minute found Jakub Blaszczykowski in space and he was able to nutmeg the keeper for the score. Switzerland won the possession battle in the first half and they kept the ball even more in the second frame, but Swansea's Lukasz Fabianski was superb in the Polish net, making a couple of spectacular saves. There was nothing he could do about Switzerland's leveler in the 82nd minute though, when Shaqiri delivered a stunning bicycle kick from distance that caromed in off the post. The two side played a goalless extra thirty minutes and went to a shootout. Each side scored except for new Arsenal signing Granit Xhaka, who's shot went well wide of the target. Poland advances now to face the winner of Croatia v Portugal.

Liverpool is reportedly in the advanced stages of securing a summer transfer for Southampton midfielder Sadio Mane.

The Reds have been in talks with Southampton over the past week and are close to agreeing to a fee in the range of £30 million. Southampton originally wanted £40 million for the 24-year-old bought for just £10 million from Salzberg in the summer of 2014, but the departure of Ronald Koeman has hastened negotiations over a summer move. The Senegalese international scored 11 goals last season in the Premier League but really found his form with eight goals in the final eight games of the season.
