Lunchtime Report: June 19

Spain have joined Germany and Portugal in the European Championships quarter-finals after a narrow victory over Group C rivals Croatia last night.

Italy will also join them in the next round of the competition after a moment of magic from Mario Balotelli ensured a win against Ireland.

Italy and Spain could meet England in the quarter-final if Roy Hodsgon's side manage at least a draw against co-hosts Ukraine this evening.

Elsewhere, Tottenham have reportedly begun negotiations with France coach Laurent Blanc as they begin the search for Harry Redknapp's successor.
