1. Spanish authorities have called for Brazil and Barcelona star Neymar to be tried for fraud in connection with his transfer from Santos to the Catalan club. It is alleged that Neymar and his dad hid the true value of the deal.

2. Heading into Euro 2016, Sir Geoff Hurst says England have the most exciting squad the country have had since the side he was part of that won the World Cup in 1966.

3. Former Leicester City defender Gerry Taggart says losing Jamie Vardy to Arsenal would be catastrophic for the Foxes. Vardy, who is currently in France with the England team, has been linked with a £120,000 a week move to the Emirates.

4. Former Ipswich Town striker Shefki Kuqi is the leading candidate to take over the vacant manager position at League One side Port Vale after previous boss Robert Page took over at Northampton Town a few weeks ago.

5. Jaap Stam is rumoured to be in contention to become the new manager of Championship club Reading. A deal for the Dutchman to take over at the Madjeski Stadium could be concluded within the next few days.

6. The exotic yet worryingly named chef for the England team, Tim De’ath, has one aim at Euro 2016; to teach Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling how to make rice pudding (Metro).

7. Chart hit, get fanned: Comedian Jim Daly has penned this parody of The Beastie Boys’ song ‘Fight For Your Right To Party’ about Jamie Vardy (Mirror).

8. What is it with footballers and hair dye? Last week it was Jack Wilshire, now Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini’s afro has gone blonde. Move over Don King!  (Joe.ie).

9. Cristiano Ronaldo has opened a second, much bigger museum to himself in his hometown. Yes, that’s right, there was already one, and now there are two museums to one man. And yes, they have both been opened by the man in question. The ego of the guy is remarkable (WhoAteAllThePies).

10. And finally…David Baddiel claims there is no official song for England’s Euro 2016 campaign because “Three Lions”, the song he, Frank Skinner and the Lightning Seeds got to number one in 1996, has helped to kill them off (BBC).
