Football (EURO 2020).

England concluded their successful Euro 2020 qualifying campaign with a victory over Kosovo that ensures they will be among the top six seeds in next summer's tournament.

Despite the emphatic scoreline, it was an unconvincing performance by Gareth Southgate's side but they were still able to end as comfortable winners in a remarkable atmosphere in Pristina.

Result: England 4 Kosovo 0.

Meanwhile Christiano Ronaldo took his tally of international goals to 99 with a late tap-in as Portugal secured a place at EURO 2020 with a laboured 2-0 win over Luxembourg.

 

 

 

F1

Red Bull's Max Verstappen passed Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes twice to take a brilliant victory in a gripping Brazilian Grand Prix.

Behind him, the race developed into a dramatic finale as Hamilton collided with Red Bull's Alexander Albon, and Toro Rosso's Pierre Gasly held off the Mercedes for second place as they crossed the line.

Hamilton took the blame for his crash with Albon and may well face a penalty for it.

Verstappen was a deserved winner in a race that he controlled from the start, but Gasly was a star, Hamilton and Mercedes had an unusually difficult race.
