In Group B action, England beat neighbours Wales 2-1 on a stoppage time winner by Daniel Sturridge. Earlier, Substitute Jamie Vardy netted in the 56th minute to cancel out Gareth Bale's 42nd minute freekick.

 

Iceland drew 1-1 with Portugal, as Birkir Bjarnason's emphatic volley cancelled out Nani's opener. A resolute defensive performance was cause for great celebration for Iceland, the smallest country to qualify for the European Championship. It saw a petulant Cristiano Ronaldo hit out at the Icelandic squad and lambasted their 'small mentality'. His week did not get particularly better, not helped by the fact that a missed penalty against Austria meant a second straight draw for Portugal.

The all new Hyundai Tucson

 

The third and latest iteration of the Hyundai Tucson is bolder, sleeker, and generously-equipped with modern technology, set to bolster the popularity of the brand's affordable and practical compact Sports Utility Vehicle. With active safety features including Autonomous Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Detection, as well as a Lane Departure Warning system, combined with the use of advanced high strength steel for better body rigidity, the new Tucson also ensures top security and a smoother ride.

    Construction on Jurong Region Line to start next year

    Construction works for five stations on the new Jurong Region Line (JRL) are expected to start next year and slated for completion in 2026. The five stations are Choa Chu Kang, Choa Chu Kang West, Tengah, Hong Kah and Corporation, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said yesterday. The authority has awarded two contracts worth $739.5 million to construct the five MRT stations. The stations will form part of JRL, Singapore's seventh MRT line, which is set to open in three stages from 2026. Comprising 24 stations, the line was announced last year to improve connectivity in the Jurong area, with the aim of boosting the area's transformation into a second Central Business District.
