Dynamo Kiev 1 Arsenal 1: Gallas' late strike rescues Arsenal from Kiev's grip

Arsenal captain William Gallas bundled in a late equaliser to rescue a point in their opening Champions League Group G game against Dynamo Kiev in the Ukraine last night.

Luton stay 30 points in red as FA penalty appeal is thrown out

Luton Town will definitely begin life in League Two on minus 30 points next month after the Football Association yesterday rejected the club's appeal.

This was followed by a 20-point penalty from the Football League last week after the club left administration without agreeing a Company Voluntary Agreement.

East End boy eager to face Ballack

The last Englishman left in Euro 2008 is, of course, also Turkish although Colin Kazim-Richards could be forgiven for admitting that the better part of his football education has come from his adopted country.

Croatia v Turkey: Bilic happy that his Croatian stars are down to earth

For a Premier League full of millionaire footballers who train behind closed doors and drive cars with tinted windows, Slaven Bilic's claim yesterday that Croatia are a team that is accessible to the people they represent was particularly poignant. The manager that dealt England two crushing blows in qualification for Euro 2008 is on the brink of a semi-final place.

Turkey 3 Czech Republic 2: Nihat's double shocks Czechs

The three Turkish players who sat a university entrance exam on the morning of this game will never forget yesterday, whether they pass or fail. Their team scored two goals and had their goalkeeper sent off in the most astonishing five minutes of this eventful Euro 2008 to steal a quarter-final place against Croatia from a stunned Czech Republic, who led 2-0 with quarter of an hour to play. Chelsea's Petr Cech made probably his worst mistake of the season to concede an equaliser in the 88th minute to Nihat Kahveci, who then beat him in the last minute for the winning goal.
