England's all-time leading goalscorer Wayne Rooney has retired from international football after turning down the chance to be part of the squad for next month's World Cup qualifiers. The Everton striker was asked by England boss Gareth Southgate to be involved against Malta and Slovakia. "Every time I was selected was a real privilege but I believe now is the time to bow out," said the 31-year-old. The former Manchester United captain scored 53 times in 119 internationals. Rooney, overlooked by Southgate for matches against Scotland and Spain in June, made his England debut in February 2003, in a 3-1 defeat by Australia at Upton Park. He made his major tournament debut as an 18-year-old at Euro 2004.

Tottenham recorded their first Premier League victory at Wembley as Christian Eriksen's second-half winner saw off a resolute Bournemouth (1-0). Having picked up maximum points from their four league games on the road this season, it was Spurs' first win in four attempts at their temporary home. Bournemouth's back five stifled Spurs in the first half, but Eriksen gave the hosts the lead immediately after the break with a smart left-footed finish. Jermain Defoe almost levelled against his old side after coming off the bench, but Hugo Lloris was equal to the striker's low effort.

Wilfried Zaha scored the winner as Crystal Palace stunned reigning champions Chelsea  (2-1) to pick up their first victory of the Premier League season. Palace had lost all seven of their previous games - including three under new boss Roy Hodgson - and had failed to score. They finally ended their 731 minute wait for a league goal when Yohan Cabaye forced the ball down off his chest, which bounced off David Luiz and into the back of the net off Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta. Palace's lead lasted only eight minutes as Cesc Fabregas' corner was headed in by Tiemoue Bakayoko. But Zaha, on his return from injury, made it 2-1 just before the break and Hodgson's side held on despite an onslaught from the Blues in the second half. The win does not move Palace off the bottom of the table, but they have reduced the gap from safety to four points. Chelsea, meanwhile, stay fourth but are now nine points behind leaders Manchester City.

There are "serious doubts" whether FA bosses are fit to stay on after a "shambolic" performance at a hearing in parliament, MP Damian Collins says. FA chairman Greg Clarke and chief executive Martin Glenn were answering questions after discrimination claims against ex-England boss Mark Sampson. "What the FA wouldn't do was acknowledge their failings," Collins told BBC sports editor Dan Roan. "It raises doubts about whether they are right to take the FA forward." "I think we need to see a real acknowledgement from the FA on their own failings, their internal failings, not just the failings in relation to Mark Sampson," added committee chair Collins. Football Association technical director Dan Ashworth and human resources director Rachel Brace also appeared alongside the pair in front of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport committee on Wednesday.

"I was told about the record after the game and I didn't know," said Klopp.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said "being good defensively is not a crime" as his side edged past Benfica (0-1) in the Champions League. The only goal of the game in Lisbon came courtesy of Marcus Rashford's long-range free-kick which caught out teenage goalkeeper Mile Svilar on his European debut. Belgian Svilar, the competition's youngest goalkeeper at 18 years and 52 days, had a moment to forget when he carried Rashford's 35-yard free-kick from out wide over his own goalline. Rashford gave United a cause for concern when he limped off with a knee injury in the second half and was replaced by Anthony Martial. United were criticised for their approach in their goalless draw against Liverpool on Saturday in which they hit the target just once, but the Red Devils have now conceded just six goals all season.

Celtic endured a European night to forget as they were swept aside by Bayern Munich (3-0) in the Champions League. Thomas Muller blasted in the opener from close range after Craig Gordon saved a header from Robert Lewandowski, who was afforded far too much space. Joshua Kimmich's perfectly placed header from Kingsley Coman's delivery made it 2-0. Mats Hummels nodded in the third after the break for a Bayern side that passed up a number of excellent chances. Celtic are third in Group B after three games, three points clear of bottom side Anderlecht, who lost 4-0 at home to Paris St-Germain.

Leicester City boss Craig Shakespeare said giving Riyad Mahrez a "kick up the backside" had paid off as the Algerian's first goal of the season rescued a point against West Bromwich Albion (1-1). Nacer Chadli's sublime free-kick - West Brom's only shot on target - looked set to earn the Baggies a hard-earned win in a game short on quality. But Mahrez, who had wasted a great chance when the game was goalless, marked his return to the side after being dropped against Bournemouth by tucking home 10 minutes from time. "I left him out against Bournemouth, gave him a kick up the backside, and he was excellent in training," said Shakespeare, whose side remain in the relegation zone and without a win in six Premier League games.

Tottenham Hotspur showed they "can handle" playing at the highest level, striker Harry Kane said after his team took a big stride towards the Champions League knockout phase with a point at Real Madrid. Spurs made the 12-time European champions fight back for a 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu on Tuesday. The Premier League side led when Kane's clever run forced Madrid defender Raphael Varane to divert Serge Aurier's right-wing cross into his own net. The Spanish champions equalised before half-time when Aurier's rash challenge on Toni Kroos was punished with a penalty, Cristiano Ronaldo drilling in to extend his tally as the leading scorer in Champions League history. "A point at the Bernabeu, you would take that every day of the week. It shows how far we have come as a team," Kane, 24, said.

Olivier Giroud's stunning late strike gave Arsenal victory at 10-man Crvena Zvezda (0-1) and kept them firmly on course to reach the Europa League knockout stage. Giroud produced the game's one moment of quality with an inventive overhead flick to hook the ball into the net. The goal came five minutes after Milan Rodic was shown a second yellow card for a foul on Francis Coquelin. Richmond Boakye had hit the post for the hosts in the first half. Arsenal are top of Group H with nine points, four ahead of second-placed BATE Borisov. This win was their third in as many Europa League games and followed a disappointing Premier League defeat by Watford at the weekend.

Everton suffered another setback in their attempt to progress in the Europa League as a home defeat by Lyon(1-2) kept the Toffees bottom of Group E. Ronald Koeman's side remain without a victory in the group stage and have not won for four games in all competitions. Ashley Williams looked to have earned them a draw just moments after sparking a scuffle, but Bertrand Traore flicked in a clever winner. Nabil Fekir had put the visitors ahead with an early penalty.

Anthony Martial's late winner kept Manchester United in second place in the Premier League as they edged out Spurs (0-1) in a hard-fought encounter at Old Trafford. Martial's introduction for Marcus Rashford after 70 minutes was not well received by some Manchester United supporters - but manager Jose Mourinho's move proved to be a masterstroke as the French striker raced on to Romelu Lukaku's header to beat Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris with only nine minutes left. It was a narrow victory United just about deserved after creating the better chances in the second half, Lukaku producing an outstanding save from Lloris and hitting the woodwork with a header. Spurs missed the goalscoring threat and presence of the injured Harry Kane, creating little other than a chance which Dele Alli steered just wide from Christian Eriksen's cross with the game still goalless. In the end, Mourinho's change and Martial's penalty box finish made the difference as United recovered from last week's surprise loss at Huddersfield Town.

A Darren Fletcher volley eased the pressure on Mark Hughes as Stoke City held on at Watford (0-1) to win away from home for the first time this season. The only goal came midway through the first half as Xherdan Shaqiri, on his return from injury, picked out the Scot just outside the 18-yard box for a sweet finish. Marco Silva's Watford side, who began the day in a lofty sixth position, enjoyed long periods of possession throughout but did not have a shot until just before the hour. Brazilian Richarlison was unable to place the ball into an open goal after good work from Andre Carrillo had stretched the Potters' defence.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said he was delighted with the "fight" his side showed in their 1-0 win at Bournemouth. Eden Hazard's goal early in the second half was enough to earn his side three points and leave them fourth in the Premier League. The Belgian hit a firm shot past Asmir Begovic at the goalkeeper's near post after defender Simon Francis failed to cut out a ball over the top. Conte had reacted angrily to reports suggesting his players were unhappy with his training methods ahead of the visit to the south coast. Chelsea's Premier League defence had begun with defeat at home to Burnley, when Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas were sent off, and Conte was without Hazard due to injury until early September.

And straight from kick-off, Danny Williams' deflected 30-yard strike caught out the Bolton goalkeeper. Derik Osede gave Bolton hope, heading in a corner, but Huddersfield held on.

Tottenham v Newport County FA Cup

Unsurprisingly Spurs have rested the big names for a tie they will be expecting to win. But there is still plenty of strength in the home side, notably in the shape of Belgium centre-back Toby Alderweireld who returns for his first appearance since the Champions League win against Real Madrid on 1 November.

England left-back Danny Rose starts for the first time since Boxing Day, while Son Heung-min, Victor Wanyama and Fernando Llorente also play. Insurance on the bench? That comes in the form of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen.

For Newport, Ben White has passed a late fitness test to make the starting line up. That means the same XI which earned the replay have been given the right to complete the job at Wembley (maybe).

Spurs XI: Vorm, Aurier, Alderweireld, Foyth, Rose, Wanyama, Winks, Sissoko, Lamela, Son, Llorente.

Newport XI: Day, Pipe, White, Demetriou, Butler, Willmott, Tozer, Labadie, Bennett, Nouble, Amond.

England were denied a second successive friendly victory by a late Italy penalty awarded by the video assistant referee (VAR) at Wembley. Gareth Southgate's side were good value for a lead given to them by Jamie Vardy's powerful 26th-minute finish, fired past keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma after Jesse Lingard's quickly taken free-kick caught the visitors out. England were fortunate to escape some defensive lapses, especially when Ciro Immobile headed over in the first half - but looked to be closing out a confidence-boosting win until a late intervention from VAR. Referee Deniz Aytekin consulted VAR after Burnley defender James Tarkowski tangled with Federico Chiesa, and decided the England debutant had stepped on the Italian's foot, allowing Lorenzo Insigne to beat Jack Butland with just three minutes left. England's players complained long and hard about the award of the spot-kick - but VAR looked to have got this one right, much to Southgate's frustration.

Danny Welbeck scored twice to send Arsenal into the fourth round of the Carabao Cup with victory over Championship side Brentford (3-1). The striker headed in Matteo Guendouzi's cross after five minutes before poking home a brilliant move before half-time at Emirates Stadium. Brentford's Alan Judge curled a superb 20-yard free-kick into the top corner after the break. Substitute Alexandre Lacazette scored a third for Arsenal in stoppage time. The Frenchman pounced on a loose ball and slotted home, before Mohamed Elneny had a goal ruled out for offside.

Tottenham reached the last 16 of the Carabao Cup as they beat Watford in a penalty shootout in Milton Keynes. Isaac Success put Watford ahead early in the second half before Christian Kabasele was sent off for fouling Dele Alli, who scored the resulting penalty. Erik Lamela chipped Heurelho Gomes to put Spurs ahead, but Etienne Capoue's deflected shot took it to penalties. Tottenham goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga saved twice in the shootout before Alli scored the winner. Success and Will Hughes scored for Watford in the shootout but Gazzaniga denied Capoue and Domingos Quina. Son Heung-min, Lamela and Fernando Llorente converted Tottenham's opening three penalties before Alli, who began his career at MK Dons, slotted past Gomes.

Nottingham Forest moved into the last 16 of the Carabao Cup as they held on to beat fellow Championship side Stoke (3-2). Forest took a fortunate lead when Adam Federici tried to collect the ball but it hit Ben Osborn and went in the net. Daryl Murphy doubled the lead with a powerful shot from 18 yards out and Joe Lolley added a third with a low strike. But Benik Afobe pulled one back from the edge of the penalty area and Saido Berahino bundled in a second from close range but it was not enough for Stoke. Forest played the last 13 minutes with 10 men after Diogo Goncalves was shown a straight red card for a high challenge on Tom Edwards. Berahino had a great chance to take the game into penalties but headed wide from close range in injury time. Forest, who have won the League Cup on four occasions, most recently reached the last 16 of the tournament in the 2004-05 season.

Raul Jimenez put Doherty through on 56 minutes and, despite the tight angle, the full-back was able to beat Wayne Hennessey at his near post. The home side began confidently in the first ever Premier League meeting between the two sides, but Wolves threatened on the counter. Rui Patricio produced an excellent double save as Wolves held onto the win, first stopping Max Meyer's volley and then blocking Wilfried Zaha's follow-up as the hosts chased a first home goal of the campaign.

Marco Silva's men had 19 shots at goal but it was the visitors who took the lead as Salomon Rondon smashed home after a sweeping counter-attack. Everton responded well and were rewarded for a period of sustained pressure when Richarlison equalised seven minutes before the interval, lifting the ball into the roof of the net from close range. Gylfi Sigurdsson and Cenk Tosun both had guilt-edged chances and the hosts continued to dominate possession after the break, but Christian Atsu had two late opportunities to steal all three points for the visitors. A point apiece sees Everton move back to sixth while Newcastle remain above Crystal Palace in 14th.

Ex-Manchester United boss José Mourinho has agreed a prison term in Spain for tax fraud but will not go to jail. A one-year prison sentence will instead be exchanged for a fine of €182,500 (£160,160). That will be added to a separate fine of €2m. Spain rarely enforces sentences of less than two years for non-violent or first-time offenders. He was accused of owing €3.3m to Spanish tax authorities from his time managing Real Madrid in 2011-2012.

Championship side Brentford beat non-league Barnet to set up an FA Cup fifth-round tie at Swansea City. Sergi Canos scored following a well-worked corner routine, before Julian Jeanvier doubled the lead with a fine volley from Said Benrahma's free-kick. Barnet's Craig Robson headed against the crossbar and Neal Maupay added a third goal with a side-footed finish. David Tutonda pulled one back for Barnet, but it was not enough for the lowest-ranked team in the competition.

They were born 12 minutes apart, and Phil Neville jokes it is the only moments of peace he's ever had from twin sister Tracey.

You imagine they are the sort of twins who finish each other's sentences, who have an intuition for exactly what the other is thinking at any given time. Most twins have an unbreakable bond, but this duo's pride and love for each other is on another level entirely.

Maybe that's the reason they both now hold such prestigious - and almost identical - jobs. Tracey, the elder by those all-important 12 minutes, is the head coach of England's netball team; Phil is the manager of the England women football team.

QPR and Reading played out an entertaining 2-2 draw at Loftus Road, ensuring Mark Bowen remained unbeaten in two games as Reading manager. QPR took the lead against the run of play after George Puscas' carelessness in possession allowed Ebere Eze to set up Nahki Wells, who rifled the ball into the corner from 20 yards. Puscas atoned for his error by drawing Reading deservedly level three minutes later, sliding a side-footed finish across the goalkeeper and into the far corner after being released by Ovie Ejaria's defence-splitting pass. QPR regained the lead through Jordan Hugill's deflected half-volley from the edge of the area after an exchange of headers with strike partner Wells, but Sam Baldock turned in from close range to secure a point for Bowen's side.

Manchester United have agreed a £1.28m (1.5m euros) fee with Inter Milan for defender Ashley Young. The 34-year-old had previously told United of his desire to join Inter and has not been involved in the club's past three games. It is understood the deal includes an add-on fee, which will be activated if Inter win Serie A this season. The agreement brings to an end Young's eight-and-a-half-year stay at Old Trafford.

Manchester United have been charged by the Football Association for failing "to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion" as they lost 2-0 at Liverpool on Sunday. The charge relates to an incident where United players confronted referee Craig Pawson after he had initially allowed a goal by Liverpool's Roberto Firmino. The video assistant referee ruled out the goal for a foul by Virgil van Dijk on keeper David de Gea in the build-up. United have until Thursday to respond. The incident, which happened in the 26th minute as Liverpool led 1-0, saw De Gea booked for his protests to Pawson.

Season ticket holders in that area have been told a safe standing trial is likely to take place later this season. In minutes published from a recent fans' forum meeting, United said it believed the introduction of rail seating will "enhance spectator safety" in areas of "persistent standing".

English Football League clubs are expected to leave Stevenage and Macclesfield Town sweating on their EFL status by blocking the request of League Two clubs to stop relegation into the National League this season when they meet on Tuesday. It is anticipated League One and League Two will be settled by a points-per-game format, with a number of alternative options and amendments unlikely to gain enough support to change the plan to end the entire campaign which was outlined by the EFL on 21 May. That would confirm Coventry and Rotherham being promoted to the Championship, with sixth-placed Peterborough missing out on a League One play-off spot as Wycombe would jump five places from eighth to third because they have a game in hand on the clubs around them. Tranmere, who have put forward their own proposal, would be relegated, along with Southend and Bolton. In League Two, the top three would remain unaffected other than Swindon claiming the title ahead of Crewe, while those currently between fourth and seventh would contest the play-offs.

The threat of clubs going bust because of the financial impact of Covid-19 has not gone away, says Football League chairman Rick Parry. After weeks of argument, Leagues One and Two voted by an "overwhelming majority" to end their seasons in line with EFL guidelines on Tuesday, after a number of alternative proposals and amendments were rejected. It remains to be seen whether Tranmere and Peterborough, the most vocal opponents of the outcome, decide to pursue a legal fight. However, for Parry, attention now turns to addressing the "£200m hole" that will exist in the finances of EFL clubs by September, which he outlined in his appearance before the DCMS Select Committee on 5 May.

Manchester City have successfully overturned their two-year ban from European club competitions. The Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) announced the club were cleared of "disguising equity funds as sponsorship contributions". Uefa issued the ban in February after ruling City had committed "serious breaches" of Financial Fair Play regulations between 2012 and 2016. City's fine has been cut from 30m euros (£26.9m) to 10m euros. In delivering the ruling, Cas said City did "fail to cooperate with Uefa authorities" but overturned the decision by Uefa's club financial control body (CFCB) to ban them.

Brentford play Fulham on Tuesday for the chance to return to the English top flight for the first time in 73 years - and earn about £160m in the process. The west London rivals, separated by just four miles, meet in the Championship play-off final at Wembley. Fulham could seal an immediate return to the Premier League. Victory in the match, often dubbed the richest game in football, would be worth £135m to Fulham and about £160m to Brentford over the next three years. Brentford finished third in the table, one place above Fulham on goal difference, and won both league meetings during the regular campaign. If they fail to win, the Bees will have taken part in more unsuccessful play-off campaigns in the English Football League than any other club, with this their ninth attempt.
