England are European champions, after a final that attracted the biggest-ever UEFA tournament crowd and the biggest UK TV audience of the year.

Liverpool won the Community Shield as Darwin Nuñez enjoyed a better debut than Erling Haaland – what wild conclusions about the season to come can be extrapolated from this one friendly?

Richie Sadlier joins us to talk about England’s Euros win and to give his impressions of a highly successful tournament.


Plus there’s the job the FAI aren’t doing with women’s football, (men’s) 2020 Euros yobs, Messi’s top form and when are Newcastle United gonna spend some of that Saudi money?
