Croatia may be without Modric for match against Spain

The Kremlin on Sunday rejected a suggestion by senior British government officials it may have deliberately sanctioned violence by Russian soccer hooligans at the Euro 2016 tournament in France as anti-Russian hysteria. It spoke out after Britain's Observer newspaper published a report citing the unnamed British officials as saying they suspected the Kremlin may have links to the Russian hooligans who attacked England supporters in Marseille. The British officials were quoted as saying that many of the Russian hooligans were in the uniformed services and that their actions looked like a continuation of President Vladimir Putin's 'hybrid warfare' against the Wes

It appeared Orlando would have the victory when Julio Baptista scored in the 90th minute, trapping a pass from Carlos Rivas and spinning around to rocket a left-footed shot that diving San Jose keeper David Bingham got a hand on but couldn't keep it out of the net.

Currently in second place in Euro 2016 group B with three points, Wales could finish either top or bottom of their section, depending on their own result against Russia here and England's against Slovakia. If they beat the Russians, who have only one point, and neighbors England fail to win, Chris Coleman's side would be proud group winners, qualifying for a round of 16 match in the Parc des Princes next Saturday against a third-placed tea

If Portugal were to at least contemplate an alternative, they might not be ruing yet another failure to translate their dominance into three points.

Cristiano Ronaldo experienced a night to forget on his record 128th Portugal appearance Saturday, missing a late penalty in a 0-0 draw against Austria that left his team winless after two matches at the European Championship. As goalkeeper Robert Almer dived to his left, Ronaldo struck the spotkick in the opposite direction but it crashed against the post in the 79th minute.

Ronaldo won his 128th cap to break the record of Luis Figo, who was watching from the stands, but fired his 79th minute spot kick against the post, having already missed several chances in an entertaining game at the Parc des Princes.

Soccer-Hungary go down memory lane to deny Iceland

Having been in soccer's doldrums for nearly half a century, Hungary are a whisker away from reaching the Euro 2016 knockout stages after a patient and almost forgotten approach bore fruit in a 1-1 draw against Hungary on Saturday. The Hungarians, who finished fourth in the 1972 European Championship after reaching the last eight in the 1966 World Cup, at times rekindled memories of the famous generation of players who reached the 1954 World Cup final. Captain Balazs Dzsudzsak, the team’s most talented player, would not have looked out of place in the teams of the legendary Ferenc Puskas, whose “light cavalry” instilled primal fear in the hearts of traditional soccer heavyweights in the 1950s and early 1960

The victory of the world's second-ranked team was in stark contrast to their limp defeat in their opening Euro 2016 match against Italy. Despite dominating the opening half, it still took until the opening minutes of the second period for Belgium to take the lead when Lukaku finished a counter-attack by rifling a shot into the far corne

Gylfi Sigurdsson's nerveless penalty just before halftime had looked set to lift Iceland top of the Group F standings but Saevarsson turned in a cross by Hungarian substitute Nemanja Nikolic two minutes from the end of a match short on quality.

Romelu Lukaku scored two second-half goals to help Belgium bounce back from its opening defeat at the European Championship, with a convincing 3-0 victory over Ireland. Belgium's victory in the Group E match in Bordeaux on Saturday owed much to its much-vaunted attack, which finally sprang to life in the second-half following a fairly lackluster display in the opening 2-0 loss to Italy.
