UEFA Approves Five Substitutes For Euro 2020

Published

on

UEFA has confirmed that five substitutes will be allowed at this year’s Euro 2020, as the football world continues to adjust to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a statement, European football’s governing body explained that the decision to allow five subs at the delayed tournament, had been taken as “the rule is already in place for the World Cup qualification matches that will run from March 2021 to March 2022.”

“The reasons for the five-substitutions rule remain valid against the background of national and international football calendars affected by the Covid-19 pandemic,” the statement continued.

UEFA added that the rule would continue to be in place for the Nations League finals in October and its relegation “play-outs” in March next year.

The move to increase the number of substitutes from three to five has already been implemented in the Champions League and Europa League, as well as domestic competitions around the continent.

See The First Club To Be Relegated In EPL This Season

Published

on

Sheffield United were relegated to the Championship after Willian Jose’s first goal for Wolves secured victory.

The visitors knew, following Newcastle’s win over West Ham earlier on Saturday, that they had to avoid defeat at Molineux to delay their inevitable demotion for a few days.

But it was Wolves who edged a poor game of few chances, when they broke downfield after Enda Stevens’ shot had been blocked. Adama Traore created room close to the goalline and delivered a low cross into the six-yard box, which Jose swept home.

It broke the Brazilian’s Wolves duck in his 11th game for the club, having signed on loan from Real Sociedad in January.

The Blades tried to respond and Stevens brought an excellent save from Rui Patricio with a powerful shot from an angle.

However, there was no preventing a relegation that has seemed certain since an abysmal start to the season brought just one point from their opening 13 games.

And at the final whistle, a number of Blades players dropped to their haunches.

Sheffield United’s relegation came on the same day that Norwich’s immediate return to the Premier League was confirmed.

Interim Blades boss Paul Heckingbottom believes the club should follow the Canaries’ example and keep as much of the squad together as possible.

“It has to be the goal to come straight back,” he said.

“This incredible journey started in League One. Look at Norwich, Watford, Bournemouth, who are doing well after they got relegated last season. Keeping the group together has to be a priority.”
