Lord Sugar has been criticised for an "unhelpful and ignorant" tweet comparing Senegal's World Cup team to sellers on the "beach in Marbella". 👉

Dear Fans , I am sorry to leave the club after only one year again. It was a good experience working with the players as one of the assistant-coaches. But the attitude from our 2004-group is not needed there anymore.

How will turn 481-6 into “struggling Poms”? Maybe he’ll just ignore it and sandpaper over the cracks?

England produced more to enjoy in the first 45 minutes of the win against Tunisia than anything seen at Euro 2016 - but Gareth Southgate will not hide from fact flaws need to be addressed.

What we don’t know is WHY the decisions went against Kane and England. But again, this is standard. Referees (nor VARs, nor FIFA) do not usually comment post-match on why certain decisions were or were not made. That hasn't changed in the VAR era.

This is standard practice – VAR protocols mandate that all potential penalty incidents are reviewed. The referee on the pitch made the final call, as always.

Ok back to England v Tunisia and the penalty appeals by Harry Kane after it appeared he was wrestled to the ground. I understand that both incidents were checked and analysed by the video assistant referee (VAR) and his assistants last night.

What sort of football is that then? It's not widely broadcast to my knowledge.

England's win over Tunisia contained plenty to please manager Gareth Southgate - but there were a few early warning signs as well.
