Outside the Box: Time for a kick up the Arsenal as £100 ticket looms large

After the unwelcome landmark of the Championship's first £50 ticket, for Queen's Park Rangers' home game with Derby County last weekend, how long before the £100 Premier League match? It will certainly happen in London, where prices have always been highest, and the Emirates Stadium will almost certainly be the venue. Arsenal currently charge £94 for best seats at their biggest games, leaving Tottenham Hotspur (£75) and Chelsea (£65) looking cheap at the price. QPR, incidentally, had designated as "category A" opposition a Derby team that were in the bottom six in the table and had not won an away game for 18 months – until travelling to Loftus Road for a 2-0 success. Their manager Paul Jewell may not have gained many points but he will have won friends with his observation: "We can't keep bleeding fans dry."

He stepped from foot to foot, he prowled and crouched and coaxed and pleaded and didn't sit down once. A Croat on a hot tin roof. And Slaven Bilic led his country to a famous, delirious victory over Germany that will fire belief, however justified, that they can go all the way and win this competition. Bilic had said so himself before the game and Group B is now theirs.

Supersub Sverkos sets ball rolling as Czechs spoil party for co-hosts

After all the excitement of the build-up to a major tournament – flags, bunting and surreal opening ceremony – comes the football; and that is where host countries tend to fall down. Only twice have they won the first game of a European Championship, and Switzerland, who held England at Wembley in the first Euro 96 match, could not improve the sequence. Despite outplaying the Czech Republic for long periods they found Chelsea's Petr Cech in typical form and when he was finally beaten late on in a lively encounter, the crossbar saved him.
