Spain manager Luis Enrique enjoys punishing himself with ultra-marathons in the Sahara desert and cycle rides up the craggy mountain roads of Asturias. Saturday's 1-1 draw with Poland, just like their opening 0-0 stalemate with Sweden, showed up a worrying lack of spontaneity in a Spain side that appears more concerned with not giving the ball away than actually risking doing anything creative with it. As against Sweden when they attempted 917 passes and enjoyed 85% possession -- the highest numbers seen at a European Championship since 1980 -- they dominated the ball against Poland, but had little to show for their toil.

John Bercow, the former speaker of Britain's lower house of parliament, said on Saturday that he had joined the opposition Labour Party after spending most of his political career as a Conservative legislator. Bercow, who clashed with Prime Ministers Boris Johnson and Theresa May over their approach to Brexit and treatment of parliament, told the Observer newspaper that he now believed the Conservative Party was "reactionary, populist, nationalistic and sometimes even xenophobic".

SEVILLE, Spain (Reuters) -Spain were again haunted by their inability to finish off chances as they drew 1-1 with Poland on Saturday after missing a second-half penalty to leave their hopes of making the Euro 2020 knockout stage hanging in the balance. Alvaro Morata gave Spain the lead in the 25th minute but Poland, who had hit the woodwork twice in the first half, deservedly drew level with a towering header from Robert Lewandowski in the 54th. Spain were given a penalty soon after but Gerard Moreno blasted his shot against the post and Morata scuffed the rebound wide, leaving Luis Enrique's side cursing their profligacy just as in their goalless opening draw with Sweden.

Renowned for being the toughest test on the golf calendar, the U.S. Open was proving to be an exception to the rule early in the third round on Saturday. Birdies were relatively plentiful as play began in a light if freshening breeze under greyish skies amid mild temperatures that kept the sun from baking out the Torrey Pines greens. As halfway leaders Richard Bland and Russell Henley prepared to tee off at five-under-par 137, Englishmen Paul Casey and Ian Poulter took advantage of their early tee times to post rounds of 67 and 68 respectively.
