Edinburgh Film Festival: Not yet a 'festival of discovery', but they are on their way

Four years ago, the Edinburgh International Film Festival moved away from the city's main arts celebrations and into a stand-alone June slot, with declarations made that it would be a "festival of discovery" and "the Sundance of the North". That didn't quite happen – indeed, last year, the festival seemed to come to a near-standstill, with a one-off interim event not quite delivering on promises of an all-star, all-arts jamboree, a sort of cinematic Meltdown.

Caroline Wozniacki free to watch Rory while Aussies also disappear

Caroline Wozniacki, the former world No 1 who has been criticised in some quarters for a perceived lack of focus since beginning a relationship with the golfer Rory McIlroy, will be able to follow him at the Irish Open from today. The Dane lost her delayed first-round match against Austria's Tamira Paszek, last week's Eastbourne winner, 5-7, 7-6, 6-4. It was an inconsistent performance, familiar from much of Wozniacki's slide from the No 1 position in January to No 7 now.

Countries matter:
Club form is no guide to Euro 2012. So far, the top seven players in the 2011-12 Golden Boot have scored four goals between them and the most maligned of those players – Mario Gomez – has scored 75 per cent of them. The German's opportunism has been in sharp contrast to his display in the Champions League final.

Denmark v Portugal player ratings

Man-for-man marking from the Euro 2012 match at the Arena Lviv

<b>Nani:</b> Had an excellent game, attacking dangerously down the right and providing killer balls into the box including setting up Helder Postiga’s goal. 8<br/>
<b> Hélder Postiga:</b> Justified his selection with a much improved performance. Made clever runs in and around the box in particular to score his side’s second goal, neatly tucking in Nani’s driven cross. 7<br/>
<b>Cristiano Ronaldo:</b> Had a mixed game, giving a largely impressive and much improved performance. He looked extremely dangerous running from deep but was wasteful in front of goal, spurning several excellent chances to score. 7<br/>
<b>Best off the bench – Silvestre Varela (pictured): </b> Had an immediate impact, scoring the winning goal two minutes after coming on with great strike from inside the area. 7<br/>
