Michel Platini set for third term as UEFA president

UEFA president Michel Platini called for the introduction of a sin bin system to punish players for dissent offences.

UEFA President Michel Platini is set to serve a third term after no rival candidate emerged before the deadline.

The former France captain was first elected to run European football in 2007 and stood unopposed for a second term in 2011.

Platini will be confirmed for a third term as president until 2019 at the UEFA Congress in Vienna in March after UEFA announced "the cut-off deadline of 24 December 2014 has passed for submissions of candidacy" with no rival candidates.

In his second term, Platini...

Mascot for Euro 2016 in France named as Super Victor

Super Victor
Super Victor reveals his name to the world.

Meet Super Victor, the new Euro 2016 mascot.

As you may recall, the CGI-friendly new mascot was officially unveiled a fortnight or so ago, although the choosing of the little be-caped chap's name was left to football fans the world over -- with UEFA running a poll on their website to allow supporters to vote for their moniker of choice.

But Curcic said the player still had plenty to offer and could help Serbia to qualify for a place at...

Wenger warns Hodgson about letting seniors play in U21 tournament

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes Roy Hodgson should not allow any of his England players to compete in next summer's European Under-21 Championship if he wants to do well in Euro 2016.

Hodgson said earlier this week that he will not stand in the way of England under-21 boss Gareth Southgate if he opts to select the likes of Raheem Sterling, Ross Barkley or Jack Wilshere for the underage tournament at the end of the season.

Arsenal could also lose Three Lions senior squad members Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain...

Expanded Euro 2016 breathes new life into qualifying

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol believes Scotland can put themselves in great position to qualify for Euro 2016 if they can win away from home.

If the euphoria of the World Cup in Brazil was the shot in the arm that international football needed -- certainly from the perspective of a European-focused audience, who sometimes tends to see it as an irritant to the serious business of the high-end club game -- then the opening rounds of qualifying for Euro 2016 have continued that upward swing.

The prospect of the 2016 European Championship finals containing 24 teams for the first time originally elicited plenty of groans.

A 16-team final tournament...
