Netherlands shut out Spain while England, Italy draw in friendlies

Andros Townsend equalises late for England as they play out a 1-1 draw with Italy in Turin.
ESPN FC's Steve Nicol explains that if Raheem Sterling can make all the money in the world if he continues to improve, following reports that he's rejected a new deal with Liverpool.

Netherlands scored twice in a four-minute span and shut out Spain 2-0 on Tuesday in a friendly in Amsterdam.

Stefan de Vrij's header opened the scoring in the 13th minute, and Davy Klaassen doubled the advantage in the 16th.

The final place in the African Nations Cup quarterfinals will remarkably be decided by the drawing of lots after Guinea and Mali fought out a 1-1 draw.

Both teams have played out 1-1 draws in their previous Group D matches, meaning lots will be required to decide who finishes second and will face Ghana.

It is a remarkable set of circumstances and one not seen at the African Nations Cup since 1988, when the drawing of lots sent Algeria through to the knockout stage at the expense of the Ivory Coast.
