Catch highlights of England's Euro 2016 and 2018 World Cup qualifiers

A new agreement with UEFA provides Sky Sports with coverage of up to 500 international matches over three years, starting with Euro 2016 qualifiers in September 2014, including England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland, as well as all other UEFA associations.

Sky Sports will show highlights of every England qualifying match for both Euro 2016 and the 2018 World Cup, and live away matches, should England play other Home Nations.

The broadcaster will also show all home and away matches involving Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland exclusively live in the UK during qualification for both tournaments.

Barney Francis, Sky Sports managing director, said: "Both the UEFA European Championship and FIFA World Cup are football's most important international tournaments and this deal offers Sky Sports viewers the complete qualification story.

"We've been broadcasting international football since the beginning of Sky Sports and this deal means our viewers can enjoy watching some of the best players and nations over the next four years.

"There has never been a better time to be a Sky Sports subscriber, with an unrivalled breadth of sport offered across six different channels.

"This year our viewers can enjoy The British & Irish Lions Tour, back-to-back Ashes Series, the ICC Champions Trophy, every race live in the F1 season, Super League, US Open and US PGA Golf, Andy Murray defending his US Open title and, of course, our biggest ever season of football."

2013 European U21 Championships

Sky Sports has also won the rights to broadcast all 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Championship matches exclusively live, adding to this summer's exciting schedule of sport.

The tournament, which features Europe's brightest young stars from England and seven other nations, kicks off on June 5. Taking place in Israel, coverage will include all group matches, both semi-finals and the final on June 18.

The wider football schedule on Sky Sports includes 116 fixtures from the Barclays Premier League - three quarters of all live matches and more than ever before - as well as over 120 UEFA Champions League fixtures.

Sky Sports will also show 75 npower Football League fixtures, the Capital One Cup, over 100 fixtures from La Liga, Clydesdale Bank Premier League, William Hill Scottish Cup and much more.

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.
