Hooligan's Wake Up: Tite announced as new Brazil manager

Yesterday's Scores
Euro 2016
Russia 0-3 Wales
(Ramsey 11', Taylor 20', Bale 67')

Slovakia 0-0 England

England and Slovakia played out a rather boring draw where neither team looked interested in trying to score at any point. Even when England was putting all the pressure on, knowing that Wales were cruising to victory over Russia and taking the top spot in the group, The Three Lions weren't putting nearly enough numbers in the penalty are out of fear of getting burned on a likely non-existent counter attack. It was extremely unsatisfying. It led to Wales, of all nations, taking the top spot in Group B while England comes in second. The four points on the round for Slovakia will probably be enough to get them through, too.

Headlines
Tite has been officially announced as Brazil's new manager. He inherits a team from Dunga that was eliminated in this year's Copa America, couldn't get out of the quarterfinals in last year's edition, and currently sits in sixth place in South American World Cup Qualifying, one spot away from not qualifying. Tite's resume in Brazil is impressive. He led Sao Paolo to a pair of Brazilian titles, a Copa Libertadores, and a Club World Cup. His focus, naturally, will be righting the World Cup qualification ship and getting them to Russia in 2018.

Tottenham have agreed to pay Southampton £11 million for midfielder Victor Wanyama. He has made 85 appearances for Saints and scored four times. If he completes the move to North London, he will be reunited with former Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino.
