World Cup

Argentina were pushed all the way through 118 goalless minutes by Switzerland until Angel Di Maria popped up and sent South Americans into the quarter-finals.

Here’s hoping for better football on offer tonight. The Americans are pumped anyway.

 The best thing we shared

After yesterday’s epic arm-folding action, you’d be amazed at the reasons some footballers get into a strop with you. Have a go and witness all the footballers you thought you’d forgotten about halfway through the group stage.


Where we were today

Eamon O’Donoghue went to speak to Jack Guiney and Cian O’Callaghan ahead of the under 21 Leinster hurling final. You can read what they had to say tomorrow.

On the record

“If David Humphreys was still at Ulster, there’s no doubt Mark Anscombe would still be here.”

A source in Ulster tries to make some sense of the goings on in the northern province.

The Fixture list

There’s no World Cup…. but that doesn’t mean that sport takes a day off. Cork meet Kerry in the  Munster junior football final (Tralee, 7.30pm).

The quarter-finals in both the men’s and women’s draw at Wimbledon get under way. Andy Murray faces Gregor Dimitrov, Roger Federer meets Stan Wawrinka, Sabine Lisicki meets Simona Halep and Angelique Kerber takes on Eugenie Bouchard.

Showbiz, Baby

If you’re going to unleash a shot this ridiculously good, you might as well go ahead and beat Rafa Nadal while you’re at it.
