    EU plans Ireland supports in case of hard Brexit

    Mr Juncker delivered a clear message to the British government when he addressed a joint sitting of the Dáil and Seanad by stating that “Ireland’s border is Europe’s border - and is our union’s priority”. In a historic speech, Mr Juncker echoed president of the European Council, Donald Tusk, by stating the EU will put “Ireland first” and will do everything possible to protect the border with the North. But Mr Juncker, who was accompanied by the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier, said: “As the clock to Brexit ticks down, we must prepare for every eventuality, including no deal. “This is neither a desired nor a likely outcome.

    MINNESOTA, U.S. - Addressing a crowd of supporters during a rally in Duluth, Minnesota, the U.S. President Donald Trump continued to tout his successful first and historic meeting with the North Korean leader, whom he met in Singapore last week. Despite several U.S. and international experts pointing out that while the summit marked a new chapter in ties between the two nations, it lacked in substance - Trump continued to hail the summit as a win for the U.S. At the rally, Trump even declared that on Wednesday, North Korea had returned the remains of 200 U.S. troops missing from the Korean War.

    Russian spy: Ominous note for Raheem Sterling as England’s tactics spotted

    England began fully focusing on the Group G clash with Panama yesterday when attention on manager Southgate after dislocating a shoulder swiftly switched to his assistant.

The sheet suggested Sterling would be the fall guy in attack. England have already scrapped today’s open training to prepare behind closed doors, with Trent Alexander-Arnold - listed as back-up right-back to Kieran Trippier - conceding the note could give Panama

  • Croatia’s World Cup celebration stirs Balkan tensions

    Croatia’s players have stoked ethnic tensions by celebrating their 3-0 victory against Argentina by singing a nationalist song that glorifies the Balkan country’s wartime struggle against the Serbs. A brief clip shows defender Dejan Lovren singing the song with other players in the dressing room after Thursday’s match. The song by a popular Croatian singer known as Thompson starts with a chant that was used by Croatia’s pro-Nazis during the Second World War. It also mentions chasing Serb “bandits” out of Croatia - a reference to the war between the two former Yugoslav republics in the 1990s. Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said he does not understand why the Croatian players would celebrate
