SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

Man, don't sleep on the last few minutes or stoppage time of the Euro group matches. So many game-changing goals at the death!

The Northern Ireland - Ukraine was suspended for a few minutes due to hail...

Then it wasn't quite "Arconada... Armstrong!" but "Pyatov... McGinn!" will still start a proper party.

If this is a harbinger of things to come, Carson Wentz is in for a strange career.

Was there an explanation of what happened with NI's third substitute? I couldn't tell if there was a legitimate miscommunication among the officials and then NI milked it for a delay or if it was just time wasting.

I've been informed that the hit total above does not include Ichiro's Japanese minor league or Japanese playoff totals. If you include those, he jumps over Ty Cobb and moves into second with 4,423. He's still well behind Pete Rose's total.

Everton have been linked with Ajax & Poland's Arkadiusz Milik (#7). After 71 minutes of this game, he ought to be available on a free transfer. Just not his day.
