    Euro 2028 confirmed as 5 countries. UEFA only give hosts auto qualification if 2 or less hosts. I get the feeling England will be the only team with auto qualification. I don't understand why England just didn't host by themselves or with one other country. It's a bit mental.
    Maybe the other 4 should get a guaranteed play off place if they fail to qualify.

    Does seem really daft having a joint bid with England involved, they could easily host it on their own, and Scotland/Wales/Ireland could do it between us, with a little bit of investment in a few stadiums being much more beneficial long term.

    Porto is bankrupt. Nothing will happen because its a big club and we are in Portugal. They announced their financial results this week and what a balance sheet they have.

    Assets: 356M€
    Liabilities: 532M€
    Equity: -176M€

    290M€ of current liabilities (i.e., short term financial obligations).

    Watching the Belgium v Sweden game and the second half hasn't started, no commentary or word of what's happening but I've read elsewhere that 2 fans in Sweden tops were shot dead before the game. Not sure if it was close to the stadium or something and maybe it's been abandoned but they've not said anything yet, has just been a video of inside the stadium rolling then has just gone to advert.

    Two Swedes shot I'm reading and gunman was seen heading towards stadium.

    The Two Swedes were shot more than an hour ago mind you so not sure if that has anything to do with it. Surely they would have stopped the game from being played if they were afraid of an attack.

    Abandoned now according to Livescore.

    Terrible man, going away to a game and not coming home after something like this happening.
