Martin Odegaard shines as Norway and Sweden draw

Martin Odegaard created many chances but could not spark Norway to a win over neighbours Sweden.

Norway striker Alexander Soderlund could have had a hat trick as the hosts had the better of the ball after half-time, though Sweden also came close in the closing minutes.

The last chance fell to Norway...

Italy coach Antonio Conte has therefore turned to Verratti, 22, someone who has shone on the Champions League stage for Paris Saint-Germain.

The PSG player has a chance to prove he can be a permanent replacement...

Bulgaria sack Lyuboslav Penev after dismal Euro 2016 qualifying start

Federation president Borislav Mihailov did not name a replacement for the 48-year-old Penev, who was appointed in November 2011, but said a foreign coach was not an option.
