An injury to Real Madrid full-back Daniel Carvajal during the cup final win over Atletico Madrid could have opened the European Championship door for Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin.

Carvajal was forced off early in the second half of Saturdays' Champions League final in Milan and if further tests confirm the 24-year-old has suffered a calf strain [as suspected], then Bellerin will be heading to France. "It all depends on what the medical staff say about Carvajal's fitness," Del Bosque said at todays’ news conference. "Bellerin will stay with the squad until we know the extent of Carvajal's injury." Spain have until May 31 to confirm this summers’ European Championship squad, but Diego Costa and Santi Cazorla are already confirmed absentees due to their ongoing injury problems.

Didier Deschamps is not prepared to risk Anthony Martial in Monday nights’ penultimate European Championship warm-up match against Cameroon after the Manchester United attacker complained of muscular discomfort.

The French coach cited a long Premier League season confirming the 20-year-old "has pain in his thigh," caused by "muscular fatigue." There is no suggestion that Martial could miss out at Euro 2016 and his withdrawal from the squad is purely as a precaution having seen the likes of Raphael Varane and Jeremy Mathieu ruled out in recent weeks. Meanwhile, Mamadou Sakho is available once again after UEFA decided not to extend his 30-day anti-doping ban. However, after more than a month on the sidelines, Deschamps is unlikely to call upon the Liverpool defender who is lacking match fitness.

Leicester City have gone after Hannover 96 goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler.

Zieler is a solid goalkeeper who can be had for a reasonable price. He isn't likely to be ahead of Kasper Schmeichel, but rumors have surfaced about Schmeichel's status going forward. If Schmeichel goes to another club and Zieler ends up with the Foxes, he will be a solid fantasy goalkeeper next season. Whoever starts for Leicester at the goalkeeper position will be a mid-round pick next season.

Kelvin Davis has finished his playing career but may stay with Southampton in a different role.

Davis has been an example player at Southampton, staying professional and contributing to the solid locker room the team has. The club have noticed and are willing to find a role for him even though he is done playing at age 39. Davis is obviously no longer a fantasy option.

Southampton have released midfielder Gaston Ramirez.

Ramirez played in 55 matches for Southampton but never really won a regular spot in the rotation. The 25-year old spent time on loan in the Championship, where he was a solid contributor, but he never found a spot with the Saints. Now released, he will have a shot at earning a job at another Premier League team, and he could be a starter on one of the lesser teams in the league. Keep an eye on him, as he can be a late round fantasy pick if he ends up in a good spot.

Eden Hazard said he's very excited to play against his former boss Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho took over at Manchester United a few days ago and despite rumors that Hazard might be leaving Chelsea, the winger seems excited to stay at Chelsea. He is focused on the Euro Championships at the moment, but we will have more on his future as rumors develop. For now, he seems to be set to stay at Chelsea, and if he does, he will be a good fantasy target next season who should come a bit cheaper than usual after a poor season.

Wanyama scored for Kenya in their friendly match against Tanzania.

Wanyama had a solid season for Southampton but he is not on penalty duty in the Premier League and his fantasy value remains extremely low. He is a better on-pitch performer than a fantasy contributor, and this doesn't seem likely to change going forward. Avoid him in standard leagues.

Both sides made their first three and Real made their fourth. Juanfran put his shot off the post giving Ronaldo the chance to seal it. The Portugal international buried his kick and Real and Zidane were off to celebrate.

Yaya Toure is reportedly set to stay at Manchester City this summer to fight for a spot under incoming manager Pep Guardiola.

The Ivorian midfielder rejected two offers from the Chinese Super League sides Shanghai SIPG and Jiangsu Suning that would have made him the highest-paid footballer in the world with a contract of more than £300,000-a-week on top of a massive signing bonus. But if he rejects advances from Inter Milan and former coach Roberto Mancini, Toure faces a fight on his hands under Guardiola, who sold him from Barcelona. The legendary manager is set to make Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan his first signing with a £17.8 million move lined up.

The Ireland national team is coming into full fitness at just the right time with James McCarthy and Ciaran Clark back.

The Everton standout midfielder has yet to train with the Irish squad after suffering a thigh injury at the end of the Premier League season. Meanwhile, Clark missed the team's friendly draw with the Netherlands on Friday due to an Achilles injury, but participated in light training on Saturday ahead of Tuesday's friendly against Belarus. While McCarthy is set to return to training on Monday, coach Martin O'Neill said he will likely not be involved in the friendly, but has done enough to be in the 23-man final squad for the European championships this summer.

The UEFA have ended the anti-doping ban levied on Mamadou Sakho back in March, and the French international defender is eligible to play again for club and country.

Sakho may squeeze his way into the French squad for this summer's Euros as the team's manager, Didier Deschamps, has until the last day of the month to submit his final 23-man list. A lawyer representing Sakho argued that the substance used by Sakho which got him into trouble, a fat-burning product, was not on the list of banned substances. Sakho has reportedly been training on his own during his suspension and is eager to play for Les Blues.

Roy Hodgson confirms Daniel Sturridge is suffering from a "minor [calf] injury" which is not expected to affect his chances of appearing at this summers’ European Championships.

The rumour mill has been on full tilt this week suggesting Sturridge would miss out on a place at Euro 2016. The 26-year-old has failed to train since arriving at camp, but Hodgson remains hopeful he can overcome this latest setback and prove his fitness in training on Monday: "I have no indication the seriousness of the injury is such, (that) it is putting his chances in jeopardy at all." If injury was to rule Sturridge out, then the Three Lions would turn to man-of-the-moment Marcus Rashford whose remarkable rise from anonymity was capped on Friday with a goal on his England senior debut after only three-minutes.

The Marcus Rashford fairy tale continued on Friday with the Manchester United youth product starting and scoring for England against Australia in a Euro tune-up.

Rashford's rise has been almost as out of nowhere as that of Leicester City and the party looks like it may continue into the summer. With Daniel Sturridge (injury) and Jamie Vardy (wedding) unavailable, Rashford started against Australia on Friday and it was a mere three minutes before he was on the scoresheet. Teammate Wayne Rooney came on at halftime for Jack Wilshere and made it two for the United duo as they look to push England beyond their traditional quarter final exit in big tournaments.
