Sampson found guilty of racially abusing Aluko

THE Football Association has apologised  to two England players after an inquiry concluded they had been subjected to racial remarks by former women’s team boss Mark Sampson, The Sun reports.
FA chief executive Martin Glenn made the 11th-hour apology to Chelsea stars Eni Aluko and Drew Spence just before he and fellow bigwigs were due to appear before a committee of MPs.
Katharine Newton, in her second inquiry and the FA’s THIRD try to investigate Aluko’s complaints of bullying, found Sampson had made discriminatory remarks.

The 1-0 snooze fest at Wembley was enough to secure England’s passage to the finals in Russia in June, but the abject nature of their display will have left nobody in any doubt that Gareth Southgate’s side will be in for a hard slog just to get out of their group. There seemed to be little more in their game plan than to pass the ball sideways until Marcus Rashford was in space, then stand still and watch the Manchester United star do what he could out on the left.  There was no verve, no creativity, no fight. There was absolutely nothing until they finally got themselves into a crossing position in the 94th minute and Kyle Walker sent in an excellent ball for Harry Kane to slide home. For a team p…

Whatever David Platt can do, Mario Gaspar can do it better.

Jack Butland says he is ready to challenge Joe Hart for England’s No.1 shirt, but concedes the Manchester City goalkeeper is “almost an immovable object”.

The Stoke City goalkeeper made his international debut in a 2-1 friendly win over Italy in 2012, and had to wait three years for his osecnd appearance, which came in this week’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania.

Hart has established himself as Roy Hodgson’s first-choice stopper since the former Fulham boss was appointed manager four years ago, but Butland is determined to add to his brace of caps .
