Spain boss Vicente del Bosque admits he is in the dark about the level of injuries to two of his key players after they secured Euro 2016 qualification with victory over Luxembourg.

Manchester City midfielder David Silva was forced off after just 11 minutes as he failed to run off a leg injury, while Alvaro Morata was stretchered off.

La Roja wrapped up a 4-0 win which sealed their passage to France next year, as a brace each from Santi Cazorla and Morata's replacement Paco Alcacer saw them home.

Spain's players and coach were concerned about the medical situation around the duo, but Del Bosque said after the game: "I do not know the extent of the injuries.

"Our doctors will inform you when they know something. We know nothing for now."

Sam Allardyce appointed new Sunderland boss

Sunderland have named Sam Allardyce as their new manager on a two-year deal.

The Premier League club announced the news on Friday evening, having opened talks with him in a bid to replace Dick Advocaat, who left his post last Sunday.

The news of Allardyce's arrival to the Stadium of Light means the Black Cats will have someone in place ahead of their trip to West Brom on October 17.

Allardyce has been on holiday in Spain as Sunderland's interest in him became an open secret, but chairman Ellis Short has persuaded him to resume his career on Wearside following his exit from West Ham after four years at the end of last season.

Short said on Sunderland's official website: "I am very pleased to welcome Sam to our football club."

The same action is being taken against the Polish Football Federation.

New Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he wants to win the Premier League in the next four years.

The German held his first press conference as the new man in charge at Anfield and set himself the ambitious target of being the top team in England.

"Twenty-five years ago (Liverpool's last title) is a long time. In this time all people have tried to get better, to improve, to take the next title.

"But history is only the base for us. It is all the people are interested in but you don't take history in your backpack and carry it with you for 25 years.

"We can wait for it but I don't want to say we can wait 20 years.

"If we sit here in four years I think we'll have won one title - I'm pretty sure."
