Hodgson leaves Cole out of squad
Roy Hodgson has made the biggest call of his World Cup finals squad: Ashley Cole is out and Leighton Baines and Luke Shaw will be his left-back choices. Cole is England’s fifth highest capped player with 107 appearances and is likely to retire from intenational football this summer.
‘Perfect’ Derby seal play-off final place
Derby County sealed their place in the Championship play-off final after they beat Brighton 4-1 yesterday to earn a 6-2 aggregate semi-final victory. “We look a damn good side,” said manager Steve McClaren. “It was the perfect performance.”

I would not pick Jack Wilshere for England’s World Cup squad. Before he cracked a navicular bone in March, his performances this season were not enough to warrant taking him half-fit.
Norwich relegated as Arsenal prevail
Norwich City were relegated from the Premier League yesterday after they lost 2-0 at home to Arsenal, Aaron Ramsey and Carl Jenkinson on target. Canaries manager Neil Adams should find out this week if he will be in charge of the club next season.
