The Sport Matrix: Thursday 6 March 2014

Late Sturridge goal punishes Denmark

Daniel Sturridge continued his fine goalscoring form as England beat Denmark 1-0 at Wembley Stadium last night. The Liverpool striker headed home substitute Adam Lallana's fine cross, but Roy Hodgson's men were underwhelming in this friendly match. MORE

Bale shines, Suarez falters, Brazil dazzle

It was a frustrating night for Luis Suarez as Uruguay, one of England's World Cup opponents, drew 1-1 with Austria. Brazil thrashed South Africa 5-0 thanks partly to a Neymar hat-trick, while Gareth Bale scored one and set up two as Wales beat Iceland 3-1. MORE

Mourinho: England can win World Cup

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes Roy Hodgson's "experienced" England side must not be underestimated in Brazil this summer, despite the quality they face. "England, everybody says no, no, no, no, no – I always say why not because I don't understand why not," he said. MORE

'World-class' Vidic to sign for Inter

Manchester United's captain Nemanja Vidic will join Internazionale at the end of the season, the Serie A club announced yesterday. The 32-year-old said last month he would be leaving David Moyes' side. "He is a world-class player," said Inter president Erick Thohir. MORE

Root helps England wrap up ODI series

Joe Root scored an impressive century as England saw off West Indies by 25 runs to win the one-day international series 2-1 in Antigua. Jos Buttler hit 99 as the tourists scored 303-6, with Denish Ramdin's 128 not enough in a reply of 278 all out. MORE

Unhappy farewell for captain Smith

South Africa captain Graeme Smith's Test career ended with a defeat yesterday as Australia clinched the three-match series 2-1 with victory in the third Test. Two late wickets from Ryan Harris sealed a 245-run win for the tourists. MORE

Have Lancaster's team grown up?

England coach Stuart Lancaster believes his team have "grown" since last year's thrashing by Wales, but Warren Gatland isn't so sure. "The talk is they have turned into men. I guess time will tell on Sunday," the coach said of the weekend game. MORE

Wiggins: I'm here to support Froome

In an exclusive interview, Sir Bradley Wiggins has pledged his support to Chris Froome in the Tour de France, admitting his successor as champion is top dog at Team Sky. "Froome has got the mantle now and that is good," he said. MORE

Hutchins to run Queen's event

Ross Hutchins has been appointed tournament director of the Aegon Championships at Queen's Club in London. Hutchins returned to playing this year after recovering from Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Bradley Wiggins

Sir Bradley believes that a Team Sky women's squad is the way forward in an increasingly equal sport. "It's the next logical step in terms of what we are focused on," he said. MORE
