road to wembley fans to return for englands friendly against wales in october

England are set to make a playing return in front of fans in October in a friendly against Wales, after being told their away matches in September will go ahead behind closed doors.

Gareth Southgate‘s side have not played since November because of the coronavirus, but will return in September when they travel to Iceland and Denmark for the start of the UEFA Nations League.

It was anticipated local fans would be permitted into the stadium to watch the game against Iceland because of the country’s low coronavirus rate.

Iceland have recorded just 10 Covid-related deaths — the UK’s total is 45,961 — while there have been just 1,861 confirmed cases since the pandemic struck at the start of the year.

Similarly, Denmark have relatively low coronavirus figures compared to the rest of Europe. However, UEFA will preclude the reintroduction of fans for the games in Scandinavia.

European football’s governing body have devised a return to play protocol for the recommencement of European club football next month which stipulates games are to be played in front of no supporters.

And with the Champions League final — the last game of the European club season — taking place on August 23 and Nations League games starting 10 days later, UEFA are certain to use the same protocols for the restart of international football.

It means the friendly against Wales on October 8 at Wembley has been pencilled in as the first opportunity for England to play in front of fans this year.

The UK Government have confirmed they are planning to partially open stadiums by October 1 and there is hope the visit of Ryan Giggs’s team can be played in front of fans.

chelsea new boy timo werner reveals secret of his goalscoring success is scoffing sweets after being bribed by dad

CHELSEA new boy Timo Werner has revealed the secret of his goalscoring success – eating SWEETS.

The deadly striker has become one of Europe’s most feared forwards because of his rapid pace and devastating finishing.

Timo Werner is tipped for big things at Chelsea



The Premier League got just a glimpse of what they were in for as he won a penalty and became an all round hassle for the Brighton defence in Chelsea’a 3-1 victory on Monday.

He did not score but looked dangerous against the Seagulls’ “massive” defenders and will be relishing the clash with champions Liverpool on the weekend.

The German explains his high-performance levels are all down to an unusual source – candy wagers he used to make with his dad based on his goalscoring.

He told The Independent: “At the beginning of my career, when I was nine or 10, he [my father] would buy some candies or things like that.

“It was for me to say ‘ok if I score 10 goals today I will have 10 euros’.

“It can buy me a lot of candy. It was a joke with my dad, [but] it made me want to score goals and I love scoring goals.”

LB PLAYER TRANSFER WERNER2

Frank Lampard bought Werner from RB Leipzig for £47.5 million, despite much speculation that he would end up with Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.

He said the allure of landing trophies – and playing in front of big audiences – was key in making him come to the capital.

He said: “I’ve come here to win titles, Chelsea is a big club and a club that always wants to win.

“For me I always want to win every game. So it’s clear we want to win titles.

“I wanted to come to the Premier League because it’s the world’s best league, and for me it’s the best feeling to play in front of Premier League fans.

“When we played at Tottenham with Leipzig it was crazy, really crazy to play there in front of the people.”

The 24-year-old also said Lampard’s “vision” played a part in securing his signature.

He added: “It was a strange time, we couldn’t meet each other and we met each other here for the first time because of the virus.

“But he called me a lot, we had a lot of conversations, he texted me a lot and he sent me some videos where he could show me what style of football he wants to play.

“So for me those were important things to know about moving to a new club. Because I loved to play for Leipzig and everything was well for me there.

“So it was really important for me to come to a team with a vision that fits my style of football.”

Kai Havertz also made his Premier League debut on the coast after being secured for big money, while Chelsea fans were forced to wait a bit longer for the debuts of Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Hakim Ziyech.

real madrid fans angry at clubs decision to sell left back sergio reguilon to tottenham

Real Madrid fans have shared their anger at the club’s decision to sell left back Sergio Reguilon to Tottenham.

A poll conducted by Spanish outlet Marca showed that 70 per cent of supporters are against the move with 65 per cent of fans believing he should have stayed at the expense of Marcelo.

Reguilon has arrived in north London alongside Gareth Bale and both players are expected to finalise moves later today.

Reguilon spent last season on loan at Sevilla with Marcelo and Ferland Mendy keeping him out of Zinedine Zidane’s squad. 

The 23-year-old impressed and has been the subject of interest from several clubs this summer but looks set to seal a £27million move to Spurs.  

Fans are disappointed that the defender, who was tipped for big things after working his way up through the academy, is set to depart after a good spell with Sevilla. 

Reguilon made 38 appearances for Sevilla last season, helping the club win the Europa League and finish fourth in LaLiga.

He enjoyed more playing time under previous Real managers Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari but Zidane’s arrival saw him fall down the pecking order after the arrival of Mendy last summer.  

The left back is set to finalise his move to the Premier League with team-mate Bale, who is returning to Spurs after leaving the club seven years ago.

Sportsmail exclusively revealed on Wednesday that Bale has agreed a season-long loan deal to return to north London and the Welshman has been spotted arriving at Tottenham’s training ground, with Reguilon also pictured.
