Louis van Gaal has all but confirmed that he has retired from management after knocking back a potentially lucrative offer to coach in Asia.

A DISMAL MATCH AND A RAINY NIGHT BUT WEMBLEY SALUTED A STAR

It was a miserable day in London.

The warm-up to the England v Netherlands (1:2) friendly on Tuesday was anything but warm.
