There will be a national minute of silence held in memory of Prince Philip before his funeral begins on Saturday. Buckingham Palace announced that Philip's ceremonial royal funeral will take place on April 17 in St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle. A national minute's silence will be observed as it begins at 3pm. The duke's coffin will be transported from the castle to the chapel in a specially modified Land Rover he helped to design, and followed by the Prince of Wales and senior royals on foot, a senior Palace official said. The Queen has approved the Prime Minister's recommendation of national mourning, which began on April 9 and runs until and including the day of the funeral. Only 30 people - expected to be the Duke's children, grandchildren and other close family - will attend as guests, but the Duchess of Sussex has been advised by her physician not to travel to the UK for the funeral, a Palace spokesman said. It is understood Meghan made every effort to be … [Read more...] about National minute of silence to be observed at start of Prince Philip’s funeral

Germany 5-2 Australia, Brita-Arena (Nüsken 11', Hendrich 48', Brand 63', Freigang 65', Dallmann 90+1' — Gielnik 82', 90+2') Germany’s clash against Australia was meant to be an opportunity for the hosts to measure their mettle against another top side. Instead, increasingly common COVID-19 complications forced fresh faces to step up in Wiesbaden. Just hours before the match, Germany announced defender Felicitas Rauch had tested positive for COVID-19, while teammates Lena Oberdorf, Sara Doorsoun and Svenja Huth had to quarantine despite testing negative due to their close contact to Rauch. "We know that despite the protocols there is always a slight risk [of infection] , but the timing of cases occurring on matchday is not ideal. It makes it harder to react, but the health authorities and medical team at the club did an excellent job to act quickly. Credit to them, and above all the players, who have handled it very well," said Germany coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg … [Read more...] about Germany overcome late COVID-19 crisis to dominate Australia
KAI HAVERTZ won the plaudits, Wilfried Zaha lost the plot. Chelsea’s £62million German attacker blitzed Palace with a sensational showing to get manager Thomas Tuchel’s top-four assault back on track. Red-hot Havertz scored the first and laid on the second for Christian Pulisic as the Blues raced into a 2-0 lead inside 10 minutes. Kurt Zouma made it 3-0 before the break to banish memories of last week’s 5-2 stuffing at home to lowly West Brom. It was all too much for Palace star Zaha, who well and truly spat out his dummy as first he became embroiled in a 40-yard slanging match with team-mate Patrick van Aanholt. Then the stroppy Ivory Coast international had a go at Eagles midfielder Eberechi Eze. And after countless instances of throwing his arms in the air and blaming his team-mates for everything, he tried to pick a fight with Chelsea’s Mason Mount - which resulted in ref Michael Oliver calling over both captains to defuse the situation.

Stuart Dallas scores well taken goal late before Liam Cooper sent off for reckless tackle on Gabriel Jesus Ferran Torres scores equaliser but Dallas pounces for second as City push for a winner A stunning and deserved victory by the ten men of Leeds United will have no lasting impact on Manchester City’s march towards the Premier League title but the manner of his fourth defeat of the campaign will leave Pep Guardiola with plenty of food for thought as he targets even greater prizes. Two goals from Stuart Dallas, the winner in the 91st minute, saw Leeds join a list that now also features Leicester, Tottenham and Manchester United as the only teams to have inflicted defeat on City in their 49 games this campaign. But, brilliant as Leeds were, this defeat was also, at least in part, self-inflicted as Guardiola made sweeping changes ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final visit to Borussia Dortmund. Seven players who started the narrow first leg victory in … [Read more...] about Stuart Dallas scores twice as 10-man Leeds beat Manchester City with two shots on goal
