In the final they will meet Brazil, who proved too strong for both the Netherlands and Sweden.

Damon Hill edges out the world championship leader, Michael Schumacher, at Silverstone to win the British Grand Prix, something his late father, Graham, never managed.

Warwickshire win the Benson and Hedges Cup in a disappointingly one-sided final against Worcestershire at Lord's.

Miguel Indurain pedals towards a record-equalling fourth Tour de France in a row, but Britain's Chris Boardman retires.

Nick Faldo all but blows his chances of a fourth Open Championship by playing the wrong ball on the penultimate hole of the first round at Turnberry. He makes amends, however, with a second- round 66.
