    Spain have unleashed their secret weapon for Euro 2020 – a £31,000 miracle BED that promises to slow down the ageing process.

    Spain are aiming to reclaim the European Championship trophy after their bid to win three in a row was ended in 2016, with Portugal crowned winners.

    And it turns out Enrique's men have a secret weapon in their bid to wrestle back the trophy from their neighbours. At least five Spain stars are taking advantage of a bed that promises to 'reduce biological age'.

    Marcos Llorente, Koke, Aymeric Laporte, Alvaro Morata and Eric Garcia are all claimed to use the £31,000 Hogo bed, say AS.

    It has been scientifically proven that the bed slows down ageing – making it perfect for footballers. Hogo claim it is the only bed available on the market that 'naturally reduces biological age'.

    A company statement said: "Hogo is the only scientifically guaranteed and patented rest system in the world that naturally reduces biological age by slowing down the exudation and inflammation process by which we age."

    Antonio Cassano has criticised Marco Verratti ahead of Italy’s bid to win Euro 2020.

    The fiery former striker claimed Chelsea’s Jorginho is far more deserving of a place in Roberto Mancini’s line-up while talking on Christian Vieri’s Twitch channel.

    He claimed: “Verratti contributes few assists and few goals, he’s not a player like Pirlo who can turn around the team. 

    “Jorginho for me is much more useful and decisive in big games and big teams, he is very intelligent. 

    “Verratti changes very little in games, he doesn't possess a long pass. He doesn't even shoot.”

    Young players such as Billy Gilmour starring at Euro 2020 will be just the start of Scotland’s rise, hopes Ian Maxwell.

    The SFA chief executive said: “We are only ever going to be as good as the players we develop and we need to make sure we have the right structures and pathways in place to do that to give ourselves the best chance of qualifying on a regular basis. 

    “It would be great to think that Billy and Nathan [Patterson] and David [Turnbull] might be able to go from being part of the squad to getting themselves on the pitch at some point as well. 

    “It will be a great experience for them and it’s a really aspirational event for the rest of the players and the rest starting out in the first year of performance schools who are thinking about going down that route.”

    Daniel Sturridge still had the world at his feet back in 2016 — despite being part of England’s shameful Euros exit.

    The striker, who had scored in the Europa League final for Liverpool a few weeks earlier, was expected to push on at Anfield under Jurgen Klopp.

    But today — as England name their squad for this summer’s tournament — Sturridge is a free agent who last played a match 15 MONTHS ago.

    Therry Henry may be rejoining Belgium’s coaching staff for Euro 2020… but France’s frontline strikes fear into ex-striker.

    Karim Benzema’s return to Les Bleus has him wondering if anyone can stop their ‘crazy’ attack.

    Henry said: “We won the World Cup without Benzema and then suddenly you have the luxury of bringing Benzema back.

    “I'm happy to be French because when you see the sort of squad that we are going to have and you're able to bring Benzema back… this is crazy. He's one of the best strikers in the world.

    "You won the World Cup without him and now you are bringing back one of the best strikers in the world and once again you are talking about winning the World Cup and the Euros. France have Benzema, Mbappe and Griezmann.”

    Belgium are hoping to have Kevin De Bruyne fit for Euro 2020 after it was revealed that surgery would not be required on his eye socket and nose fractures.

    The midfielder was smashed out of the Champions League final by Antonio Rudiger on Saturday and national team boss Roberto Martinez has spoken of De Bruyne’s optimism.

    He said: "It is going to be a period that we need to monitor and we need to take a lot of extra tests to see where his condition is. We are going to be very cautious.

    "When I spoke with Kevin he looks quite positive and feels well. We have been fortunate within all the sad news when we saw the incident that even though Kevin has a double fracture, he doesn't need surgery.

    "Needing surgery would make it very difficult for Kevin to be a part of the European Championships.”

    Gareth Southgate will pour plenty of stats knowledge into choosing his England squad.

    GPS provider STATSports have been called up to provide analysis of the 33 players vying for a spot during training ahead of today’s announcement.

    And chief operating officer Sean O’Connor told PA: “I think really savvy, good teams are using data to really understand what the players are capable of, the thresholds that those players will have, and then how to use that.

    “England are a great example with a fantastic backroom team using bespoke metrics and analysis, which the coaching staff and players all understand.

    “England, like a lot of our teams, will use the live data to be able to see on the spot if they’re hitting those markers or if they’re not, so they don’t in most cases overdo it as opposed to undercook it.”

    Mason Greenwood has withdrawn from England's Euro 2020 squad.

    An 'underlying' injury will keep the striker at home this summer.

    A Manchester United statement reads: "Mason Greenwood has withdrawn from the provisional England Euro 2021 squad in order to recover fully from an underlying injury that also kept him out of the U21 Euros in March.

    "A further spell of tournament football would not be beneficial and Mason will remain at Manchester United to recuperate and prepare for pre-season training."

    Harry Kane will challenge for the Euro 2020 Golden Boot whether or not his Tottenham future is solved by the tournament's start, says Alan Shearer.

    The Three Lions hero recalled his situation in 1996 to underline how the striker will find it easy to focus on England duties.

    Shearer said: "He comes into it after winning the Golden Boot in the World Cup and he'll also probably come into it on the back of having to sort his future out with Spurs.

    "I went into Euro 96 with Blackburn and of course had the tournament and then had a decision to make myself after it.

    "It sounds like he's made that decision already. I don't think that will affect him at all, even if it's not sorted out, which we don't think it will be."

    West Ham's Angelo Ogbonna has admitted his anger at being left out of Italy's Euro 2020 squad.

    The centre-back missed out to Serie A stars Francesco Acerbi, Rafael Toloi and Gianluca Mancini in Roberto Mancini's selection.

    And he told Corriere della Sera: "I am very amazed and also embittered.

    "Perhaps he did not take into consideration West Ham's season, we fought until the end for the Champions League qualification.

    "In sport, meritocracy must prevail, based on the championship in which one plays, on the statistics, on the value of the player.

    "And this time in my opinion it did not prevail."

    Thierry Henry has returned to his Belgium coaching role for Euro 2020.

    The Arsenal legend, 43, was out of work after quitting Montreal in February.

    He left the post in Canada after a year in charge because of the pandemic's impact on his family life.

    And now he is ready to step back into management by supporting Roberto Martinez as they look to lead the Red Devils to European glory.

    The Frenchman served as a second assistant in Belgium's 2018 World Cup campaign.

    Gareth Southgate has exclusively told SunSport he did not want the England job — because of the pressure of picking squads.

    Southgate revealed: “A few years ago I didn’t want the job for that reason.

    “Because I saw what it did to previous managers and their families. So when my kids were younger, I didn’t want them to experience that.”

    Meanwhile, James Ward-Prowse has missed out on a place in England’s Euros squad.

    SunSport understands Southgate told the Southampton captain of the heartbreaking news on Monday.

    Free-kick expert JWP, 26, has six caps for his country, four of which have come this season.

    He netted his first goal for the Three Lions in March’s 5-0 win over San Marino.

    Finally, Gareth Bale has refused to rule out retiring after the Euros.

    The Real Madrid ace and Spurs loanee said: “Obviously there’s been a lot of things written about whether I’m doing this and doing that.

    “I don’t want to say anything that is going to cause any problems on what I am doing or what I am not doing. My focus is just on the Euros.

    “When the Euros finishes for us then I will sit down and decide what I want to do.”
