James Taylor and Jos Buttler were the heroes for England, as they beat India to reach the Tri-Series final.

England impressed with the ball, dismissing India for 200, with Steven Finn picking up three wickets for 36 runs.

The chase began terribly for Peter Moores' men, slumping to 66-5, chasing the modest total.

The loss of the fifth wicket brought Taylor and Buttler together, as the pair added 25 for the sixth, before the Nottinghamshire batsman was dismissed with just ten more needed for victory.

The German international has struggled to force his way into Jose Mourinho's thinking this season, and first team opportunities would only have diminished further following the expected arrival of Juan Cuadrado.

Schurrle's appearances this season have been restricted to substitute cameos and domestic cup outings.

The 24 year-old will link up with former Arsenal forward Nicklas Bendtner at the high-flying Bundesliga side.

Aritz Aduriz's second-half strike was enough to send Athletic Bilbao into the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey as he notched the only goal against Malaga.

After a feisty first 45 minutes the 33-year-old stabbed home from close range shortly after the break and Athletic held on to claim a 1-0 win on the night and on aggregate.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry supports Chelsea striker Diego Costa over appeal

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has offered his support to Diego Costa over the striker's appeal for violent conduct.

Chelsea striker Costa has appealed a three match ban for his 'stamp' on Martin Skrtel during Tuesday's League Cup semi-final against Liverpool.

Henry believes Costa was fortunate to escape punishment for the incident, but claims that charging the striker retrospectively would be incorrect.

The Brazilian forward will discover on Friday whether his appeal is successful and he can play against Man City in Saturday's top-of-the table Premier League clash.

At the mid-point of the match England were firm favourites to join hosts Australia in Sunday's showpiece, having turned in a disciplined display in the field.

Having won the toss and inserted India, England captain Eoin Morgan will have been thoroughly impressed with the way his attack dovetailed as all five bowlers took wickets.

But India were abject following an opening stand of 83, losing all 10 wickets for 117.
