    EURO 2022 fans were all left amused after Spain kicked off as England took the knee. The Lionesses have taken the knee on the referee's whistle before every match at the Euros so far. 2Esther Gonzalez took kick-off while England took the knee 2Gonzalez then sprinted upfield forgetting the kick-off needed to be retaken But Spain either were not paying attention to that custom or decided to be cheeky with a quick kick-off before the quarter-final tie. The confusion was sparked by Spain striker Esther Gonzalez who passed the ball back to María Pilar León after the ref's initial whistle. Gonzalez was eager to get going and once England completed their knee-taking she sprinted up field, forgetting kick-off had to be re-taken. The Spaniard repeated her pass back to Leon whose ball forward hit an equally energetic Ellen White flush in the face - causing a delay in the game.

    ROMAN ABRAMOVICH is not the only unsavoury character being hit hard by sanctions that the Government imposed on Chelsea’s owner. Turning from the westbound exit at Fulham Broadway Tube station, one thing struck you among the steady flow of fans heading for Stamford Bridge. 3Chelsea fans did their best to generate a good atmosphere for the London derbyCredit: AFP 3Large areas of Stamford Bridge were vacant with ticket sales bannedCredit: Jamie McPhilimey 3Only Chelsea season ticket holders and Arsenal fans were allowed to attendCredit: Getty There was not a single ticket tout.

Chelsea keeper Edouard Mendy had beforehand saved Mohanad Lasheen’s kick to set the stage for the Liverpool winger.

    BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — The Portugal captain’s armband which Cristiano Ronaldo slammed into the ground after his apparent winning goal was disallowed in a World Cup qualifier against Serbia was put up for auction on Tuesday.

    EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Zach Whitecloud covered his face with his gloved right hand in anguish inside the penalty box.

Part of the reason for that is some of the penalties are automatic or blatant and can’t be ignored just because it’s the Cup. “With those, it’s not subjective,” Tampa Bay Lightning forward...
