    GREAT SCOTT

    Scott McTominay watched on from the bench as Scotland fell to a 1-0 Nations League defeat in Slovakia on Sunday afternoon.

    The 23-year-old played the full match on Thursday as Steve Clarke's side booked their place at Euro 2020.

    And he is likely to return to the starting XI as part of a back three on Wednesday, when Scotland attempt to secure promotion to Nations League Group A at the second time of asking, when they travel to Israel.

    UP THERE WITH BEST

    Manchester United target Dayot Upamecano has been tipped to succeed at Bayern Munich by his former RB Leipzig coach.

    The French defender, 22, remains one of the most sought-after defenders in European football after his stellar rise with Leipzig.

    Asked whether he would excel at the Allianz Arena, Rangnick told Sport1: “Why not? Bayern know this player well, you can assume that.

    “Physically, Bayern saw that in direct duels no one will run away from him. “He might still have one or two risky balls too many in a game, but he will certainly learn in the next few years.

    “I got to know Upa and his family over many years. They not only make decisions that sound good to them in terms of his image, but they also make decisions based on the feeling of what is best for the player himself.”

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SCHOLESY

    Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has turned 46 today.

    The Class of 92 alumnus made 709 appearances for the Red Devils between 1994 and 2013.

    WOULD HE EVER?

    Paul Scholes considered joining Everton when he came out of retirement – before Sir Alex Ferguson sorted him a contract at Manchester United.

    The legendary midfielder, now 46, hung up his boots in 2011 but continued to be involved with coaching the Under-23s at Carrington. Feeling fit enough to play competitively again, Scholes – then 36 – was contacted by former team-mate and Everton skipper Phil Neville to head to Goodison Park.

    But then a chat with Ferguson's assistant Mike Phelan and then the manager – who had failed in attempts to get Scholes to keep on playing six months earlier – secured his romantic return to the United team.

    Scholes told DAZN: “I came back in September with Warren Joyce and the U23s and I was training every day. I felt as fit as I’d probably ever had done after having four months off – it was just the break I needed. I said to Joyce that I wanted to play again – I just wanted to play.

    “Where it was I don’t care. I didn’t expect United to want me back. I spoke to Phil Neville and he said, 'Come and play for Everton.' I’ve never really wanted to play for anyone else or be involved with any other club but if that was the only option I had then I might have done it, I don’t know.”

    GOOD MORNING RED DEVILS FANS

    Marcus Rashford has hit back after a newspaper ran a story concerning how much property he has accumulated. 

    The campaigning footballer, who has been taking a lead role in the fight against childhood poverty, took issue with a Daily Mail article that referenced how many 'luxury homes' he had bought. 

    Meanwhile, Alex Telles has tested positive for coronavirus a second time and may have to miss United's next game after the international break. 

    The full-back joined up with his international side after testing negative following an initial positive test at the end of last month. 

    Manchester City have reportedly joined their rivals United in the race for Jack Grealish.

    The Aston Villa ace has received high praise in an otherwise damp England defeat at Belgium, and has two of the biggest clubs in the country interested in him. 

    Any move from Pep Guardiola's side will likely happen next summer, it is being reported.

    RED DEVILS WINS

    At least somebody has had a good night…

    ALL OVER

    It's finished Belgium 2-0 England in the Nations League game, and it sends the Three Lions out the competition.

    In truth England were far too limp for too long, while the hosts were clinical and robust in defence.

    Questions are being asked about the line-up and the tactics, but for Gareth Southgate and his troops the goal will be bouncing back against Iceland in a few days time.

  • Kiro Evans

    SANCHO ON

    Long-term United target Jadon Sancho is on for England, and he needs to help the Three Lions fire up a response.

    There have been positive signs in the second half, but it's not enough so far.

    Dominic Calvert-Lewin is also off the bench.

  • Kiro Evans

    MANCHESTER SUPPORT

    The injured absentee duo of United's Marcus Rashford and City's Raheem Sterling are backing the Three Lions tonight against Belgium.

    Unfortunately, England have looked poor so far and trail 2-0.

  • Kiro Evans

    ALL DE QUALITY

    Former United attacker Memphis Depay enjoyed the Netherlands victory against Bosnia tonight.

    He scored once while Liverpool's Gini Wijnaldum got two in a 3-1 victory.

    For all the talk of Jadon Sancho and Ousmane Dembele, you do sometimes wonder if United pulled the trigger too early on another brilliant attacking forward…

    HENDERSON ON BENCH

    Dean Henderson is on the bench tonight in an England squad that is unusually lacking in Manchester United faces.

    With Marcus Rashford pulling out with injury and Mason Greenwood not included in the squad altogether, substitute Henderson is the sole United face.

    For Belgium, England's opponents and Nations League rival, former Red Devil Romelu Lukaku leads the line.

    HAA HA HA

    Former Barcelona director Javier Bordas has claimed the club rejected the chance to sign Man United target Erling Haaland.

    The Catalans had considered the Norwegian striker as one of their options to provide back-up to Luis Suarez back in 2019.

    Having just completed an impressive stint in Molde, the youngster was heading to RB Salzburg where he later earned an £18million move to Borussia Dortmund.

    Yet SunSport previously revealed that Barca opted against beating the Germans to Haaland in favour of landing Kevin-Prince Boateng on loan.

    The club's former director Bordas has now shed some light on why the LaLiga giants avoided making a move for the now-Dortmund star.

    When asked why Barcelona didn’t go for Haaland, he told Mundo Deportivo: “Because they told me that (he) was not a Barca player.”

    RIP RAY

    The tributes have been pouring in for Ray Clemence from across the footballing world, including former United defender Gary Neville.

    The former England keeper has died today at the age of 72.

    KEEP GOING

    Marcus Rashford has vowed to continue campaigning after taking issue with a online article that mentioned how much property he owns.

    The popular United forward felt the need to defend himself from the Mail Online piece and was supported by much of the football community.

    He has now said he is going to get back to focusing on his battle against childhood poverty.

    ROO BETTER BELIEVE IT

    Harry Kane will 'absolutely' beat Wayne Rooney's all-time England goal scorer record, according to Tony Cascarino.

    The former Chelsea striker is convinced that United legend Rooney's 53 tally record will eventually go to Kane, despite the Spurs forward still being 21 goals behind.

    He told Talksport: “If he plays enough football I think he will, absolutely.

    “I think his attitude is one of his most outstanding attributes – his effort, his desire.

    “I’ve never, ever felt that Harry Kane has taken anything for granted in football. He’s always worked his socks off.

    “I think it feeds onto other people, I think it inspires and lifts others around him.”

    THAT'S NUTS

    If you haven't yet seen the brutal moment United's Anthony Martial collided with Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio yesterday in France's 1-0 win over Portugal, this is your moment.

    Men, look away…

    FOOTBALL MOURNS: RAY CLEMENCE DEAD AGED 72

    Breaking: Liverpool and England legend Ray Clemence has died, aged 72.

    His family have released a statement after he 'passed away peacefully'.

    Clemence leaves behind his wife Veronica, daughters Julie and Sarah and son Stephen, who is a former Tottenham player and current coach at Newcastle.

    The Skegness-born star played for Scunthorpe, Liverpool and Tottenham during an illustrious 23-year career.

    CAV SOME OF THAT

    Chelsea icon Gus Poyet has backed Uruguayan compatriot Edinson Cavani to be a success at Old Trafford.

    He said: “I think he is going to be more important for Manchester United than people think.

    “Look at the last game at Everton. The result was in the balance, he came off the bench, once chance and bang.

    “English football is perfect for Uruguayans because we are passionate. Once we sign a contract, we forget about it because the only thing that matters next is winning. English fans love that.

    “He makes an incredible amount of runs. Maybe he makes an unbelievable run and the ball isn't played. The fitter he gets, the more he understands United's play, the more he will play.”

    POR BLOKE

    Anthony Martial accidentally kicked Wolves keeper Rui Patricio in the privates, leaving the Portuguese star in agony.

    The eye-watering collision took place during France's Nations League victory over Portugal.

    The game ended 1-0 but French forward Martial had Patricio fearing for his manhood after a sickening blow in the nether region.

    Martial, 24, slid into the box in the second-half, trying to get on the end of a cross.

    He connected with his outstretched leg and Portugal No1 Patricio made a phenomenal reaction save.

    Unfortunately for the 32-year-old, Martial's momentum sent him studs first into his groin area.

    And the veteran keeper was understandably in some discomfort as he wheeled away in pain from the coming together.

    JACK POT

    Man City have reportedly joined rivals United in the race for Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish.

    The Daily Star claim Pep Guardiola has identified the 25-year-old playmaker as the 'ideal addition' to his squad.

    The report adds that it remains to be seen whether City will make a bid for the £70million-rated star when the transfer window opens in January.

    Grealish's stunning form for Villa may mean he will opt to see out the season at his boyhood club to cement his place in England's squad for the rescheduled Euro 2020 next summer.

    That would mean that any move from City is likely to be at the end of the current campaign.

    And Arsenal legend Gilberto Silva has urged the Gunners to bring Grealish to the Emirates.

    COVID KO

    Man Utd left-back Alex Telles has tested positive for coronavirus for a second time while on international duty with Brazil.

    The Brazilian Football Confederation have confirmed that Guilherme Arana has been called up to the side.

    The entire squad will now have to be tested for COVID-19 after Telles' positive test on Saturday.

    Should he test positive again, Telles will not be allowed to travel to Uruguay.

    DANCING WITH DER SARS

    Ajax director of football has hinted he and CEO Edwin van der Sar are open to new roles.

    United have been linked with bringing back their former goalkeeper to become their first director of football, and they will certainly be intersted as to what Overmars has had to say.

    The Gunners legend said: “When I was appointed in this job at Ajax I knew I only wanted to stay for three or four years ­maximum.

    “I have been here eight seasons now! For me – but just as much for Edwin – it is sure that we are not going to carry on here until we are 60.

    “This job at Ajax is costing too much energy. The whole of the ­Netherlands is constantly on my back and has an opinion about us.

    “The job has brought a lot of great things too. Edwin and I are proud that we have brought Ajax back where it should be in Europe.”

    NO NO NUNO

    Sporting Lisbon have reportedly increased the release clause fee for teen whiz-kind Nuno Mendes in a bid to fend off outsider interest.

    Sporting and the player's representatives have agreed to raise his initial release fee from £40million to £62m, according to Record.

    This would be the second-highest clause in the club's history, only topped by former Sporting star Bruno Fernandes whose fee was £89.7m

    Arsenal are said to have made an enquiry about Mendes but are set to face competition from rivals Manchester United and Liverpool.
