Euro 2020 LIVE: Italy vs Wales build up, Germany thrash Portugal, Uefa warning after Ronaldo Coca-Cola snub


GOOD MORNING EUROS FANS

Spain’s place in the knockout stages is under threat after being held to a second straight draw at the Euros.

Alvaro Morata fired his side ahead in the first half thanks to a controversial VAR decision.

Robert Lewandowski then bagged a second-half equaliser before Gerard Moreno missed a penalty – with Morata then sending an open-goal rebound wide as the game ended 1-1.

Earlier, Germany made up for their opening game defeat to France by sealing a huge 4-2 win against Portugal.

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring before own-goals from Ruben Dias and Raphael Guerreiro put Germany ahead.

Joachim Low’s men then moved 4-1 up thanks to efforts from Kai Havertz and Robin Gosens before Diogo Jota pulled one back for Portugal.

Elsewhere, world champions France were held to a 1-1 draw by a battling Hungary side.

The hosts took a shock lead before the break through Attila Fiola before Antoine Griezmann levelled in the second half.

Meanwhile, Gareth Southgate says England are ‘a work in progress’ and playing catch-up with fellow Euro 2020 favourites.

He said: “Some teams are at a different point in their development.

“The run that Italy have had – 28 or 29 games unbeaten – and we know what France and Portugal have done over the last few years.

“And Belgium have been the No 1 team for four years.

“So that’s the level. That’s the standard we’ve got to aspire to. We’re a work in progress.”

Finally, Harry Kane has promised England fans: I’m ready to peak at the business end of the Euros.

He said: “I know the chances will come with the players we have got in the team. 

“And when they do I will be more than capable of putting them away.”
