I caught the last 30 minutes of the Man City comeback. That was pretty wild.

And at the other end, Burnley are relegated (loss to Newcastle) while Leeds cling on, after winning at Brentford. Good to see Brentford staying up for more than one season in the PL.

In Serie A, AC Milan clinch their first title in eleven years.

Oh - and Bromley defeated Wrexham to win the FA Trophy.

That is funny. Probably not to their fans although they have all been saying that themselves.

Courtois always seems to find an extra gear in games like the CL final.

Hats off to Ukraine. Saw the first half and they were clearly the better team.  Scotland can now focus on separation from England.

These are just one game. Ukraine plays Wales Sunday for the final spot.

USA beats Morocco in a friendly. Next up against Uruguay Sunday which should be a tougher match I would assume. Although Morocco also qualified for the World Cup.

Ok. The Italy/Argentina match was actually called the Finalissimo or something like that. Matchup of EURO and CONMEBOL champs. Argentina in a rout. Bad year for the Italians.

Yes the Portenos are sure they are European.

When I was in BA in 2000 the embassy staff warned us about pickpockets.  They noted that the locals claimed they were all bolivians.
