Full-back Sam Byram's 52nd-minute goal looked to have earned Leeds their first away win since 1 December to add more credibility to their late run for a play-off place in the Championship. Deep into stoppage time, however, a headed goal from centre-back Michael Keane spoiled Neil Warnock's night.

James Lawton: England to win it, Wayne? Ukraine will be hard enough

Before he announced that England have the players and the spirit and the method to overturn 46 years of more or less unbroken futility and become European champions, it was fair to ask Wayne Rooney if he really was going to deliver something special. It is, after all, eight years ago in Portugal in this tournament that he last did anything on an international field in that category. Now another question clamours for answer. Would he recognise football reality if it landed on his head and was written on a large stone?

Sport on TV: We are in alien territory if the England manager is successful

As the comedian Al Murray said on How To Be England Manager (BBC4, Wednesday): "The Americans must have an alien in a warehouse somewhere who could manage the England team." Given that winning a tournament is about as likely as the discovery of extra-terrestrial life, it could turn out a happy coincidence.

James Lawton: With Neville in the camp, England's players should not fall prey to indifference

We can be cynical as easily as we like over the fast-tracking of Gary Neville into the hierarchy of the England team. We can ask if, for example, you were the new manager Roy Hodgson, would you rather have Red Nev at your side in the potential maelstrom of the European Championship – or lurking in a TV studio dreaming up the kind of line that hit David Luiz like an assassin's bullet?
