FIFA 22 release date reveal trailer LIVE with England vs Italy Euro 2020 Final prediction

EA Sports has revealed FIFA 22 in full, complete with an October 1 release date on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and Stadia.

The FIFA 22 trailer reveal was announced alongside confirmation that Kylian Mbappe would return as the cover star.

“Honoured to welcome back Kylian Mbappe,” reads an EA Sports tweet. “The FIFA 22 cover star. Stay tuned for the game-changing reveal on July 11th.”

The first-look trailer – which you can see below – was revealed a few hours ahead of the Euro 2020 final between England and Italy.

More details will be revealed during the upcoming EA Play event at 6pm BST on July 22.

According to the reveal trailer, FIFA 22 will be powered by HyperMotion Technology.

“Powered by HyperMotion, FIFA 22 combines Advanced 11v11 Match Capture and proprietary machine learning technology to deliver the most realistic, fluid and responsive football experience for next-gen consoles and Stadia, unlocking the raw emotion, passion and physicality of the world’s game,” EA explains.

“HyperMotion technology enabled the integration of the first-ever motion capture of 22 professional footballers playing at high intensity. Additionally, EA’s proprietary machine learning algorithm learns from more than 8.7 million frames of advanced match capture, then writes new animations in real time to create organic football movement across a variety of interactions on the pitch.”

In other FIFA news, fans have been using the game to predict the score of tonight’s game between England and Italy at Wembley.

The Three Lions will be hoping to secure a first major tournament win since the 1966 World Cup.

England beat West Germany 4-2 in 1966, but have failed to set the world of football alight in the years since.

England came close during Italia 90, losing to West Germany in the semi-finals of the competition.

Germany would once again knock England out of a tournament in Euro 96, beating the Three Lions on penalties after extra time.

The England vs Italy game is tough to call, with both teams enjoying exceptional tournaments.

Based on a simulation by FIFA YouTube streamer Paxo666UK, England will beat the Italians 1-0.

Mason Mount scores the winning goal in the FIFA simulation, so fingers crossed he does the same tonight.

Based on the early reports, Mount will start alongside Sterling and Kane in the forward areas, while Rice and Phillips will play in midfield.

Southgate will seemingly go for a back five, featuring Shaw, Maguire, Stones, Walker and Trippier.

Ethereum price prediction: ETH could soar to $20,000 in 2025 amid 'major changes'

Long-awaited upgrades to the Ethereum network, which kicked off at the end of 2020 and designed to help ETH scale and reduce its pricey costs, could help it reach never-before-seen heights.

Panel member and BitBull Capital chief operating officer Sarah Bergrstrand said: “We are likely to see major upgrades to the Ethereum network this year, and those can be expected to push the price higher.

Ms Bergstrand is very optimistic for Ethereum, predicting it could reach a staggering $ 100,000 by the time 2025 comes around.

The soaring popularity of DeFi, the process of using crypto technology to recreate traditional financial tools like loans and interest designed to replace the role of banks with blockchain-based protocols, has given Ethereum a helping hand in climbing over the last year.

George Osborne's humiliating Brexit property crash prediction as UK market 'on fire'

The Bank of England’s Chief Economist, Andy Haldane, said the UK housing market is currently “on fire” ahead of his final monetary policy committee (MPC) meeting on Thursday. According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), property prices rose by 8.9 percent in the year to April, which was down from 9.9 percent boom in March – the biggest rise since 2007. It appears to be an embarrassing blow for Mr Osborne after his downbeat assessment for Britain after Brexit.

Speaking at the G7 summit in 2016, Mr Osborne said: “If we leave the European Union, there will be an immediate economic shock that will hit financial markets. People will not know what the future looks like.

“In the long term, the country and the people in the country are going to be poorer.

“That affects the value of people’s homes and the Treasury analysis shows that there would be a hit to the value of people’s homes by at least 10 percent and up to 18 percent.”

The forecast was shared on Twitter yesterday by the Financial Time’s Chief Political Correspondent, Jim Pickard, who noted: “Not sure this prediction has aged brilliantly.”

The Treasury’s forecast was said to be for the first two years after the vote and came following a series of warnings from Downing Street forecasting dire consequences.

Mr Osborne also said households would be £4,300 a year worse off and millions of jobs would be at risk, while former Prime Minister David Cameron argued that Brexit could jeopardise peace in Europe.

At the time they were accused of scaremongering and negativity by Vote Leave – Former Business Secretary Andrea Leadsom said it was “an extraordinary claim and I’m amazed that Treasury civil servants would be prepared to make it”.

She added: “The truth is that the greatest threat to the economy is the perilous state of the euro, staying in the EU means locking ourselves to a currency zone, which Mervyn King, the ex-governor of the Bank of England, has rightly warned ‘could explode’.

“The safer option in this referendum is to take back control of the vast sums we send to Brussels every day and vote Leave on June 23.”

Jamie Durham, an economist at PWC, said: “These figures appear to confirm the market remains hot, notwithstanding that the housing market was effectively closed in April last year, which makes comparisons difficult to read too much into.

“We expect that these forces will continue to support price growth over the coming months.”

And the ONS said: “UK average house prices fell on the month in April, ending 11 consecutive months of growth.

“House prices continued to increase when compared with last year, with London once again showing the lowest annual growth most apparent within inner London boroughs.”

Shiba Inu price prediction – can SHIB reach $1 by 2025?

SHIB traded at an all-time high of $ 0.0000388 on May 10, but dropped back to a low of $ 0.00000642 on May 19.

The price moved up to $ 0.00001195 on May 24, before plummeting back down to $ 0.00000732 just five days later.

SHIB hiked higher up toward the end of MAy at $ 0.00000928, with the price as of the time of writing on June 11 standing at $ 0.000006704.

However, this is understood to be a relatively normal level of fluctuation considering the volatility of the crypto market and the fact most alt-coins spike quickly upon launch before quickly losing value.

Dogecoin prediction: DOGE enthusiasts prepare for downturn amid ongoing crash

Later this week, Chinese regulators announced plans to tighten regulations.

A statement from the National Internet Finance Association of China, the China Banking Association and the Payment and Clearing Association of China read: “Recently, cryptocurrency prices have skyrocketed and plummeted, and speculative trading of cryptocurrency has rebounded, seriously infringing on the safety of people’s property and disrupting the normal economic and financial order.”

The ban would mean banks, financial institutions and payment companies would be banned from offering clients any service involving cryptocurrency.

Eden Hazard made to regret Real Madrid prediction as Chelsea reach Champions League final

Chelsea booked their place in the final of the Champions League thanks to goals from Timo Werner and Mason Mount in a 3-1 win on aggregate. Eden Hazard had been hoping to turn to the tide for Real Madrid, but it was a night to forget for Los Blancos.
Eden Hazard was made to regret his comments about Real Madrid’s credentials after they were beaten by Chelsea in the Champions League semi-finals.

The Blues will face Premier League rivals Manchester City in this month’s Istanbul final after a pretty tame fight from Real on Wednesday night was powerless to stop goals from Timo Werner and Mason Mount proved to be the difference.

The tie hung in the balance going into the second leg at Stamford Bridge, with Real’s talented wide men Hazard and Vinicius Junior always capable of creating something out of nothing.

But as the game wore on, it became more and more clear that it would not be a happy return to west London for Hazard.

The Belgian winger left Chelsea for Real just shy of two years ago in a £100m+ switch.

Shortly after he became another Galactico, he explained that his dream had always been to play in the famous white of Real Madrid.

“My dream was always to play for Real Madrid, the greatest team in the world, and so far I’m happy,” he explained after two months in the Spanish capital.

However, on undoubtedly the biggest night of his Real career, he was powerless to stop Chelsea moving one step closer to becoming champions of Europe.

Of course, Hazard has struggled greatly with injuries during his Real career, having barely missed more than a few games for Chelsea.

But he has been a mere shadow of the player that was comfortably the best in the Premier League on his day during his time with the Blues.

There is still time for Hazard to turn things around with Los Blancos, and he could certainly start by firing them to La Liga glory to make up for their European heartbreak.

Hazard also explained in that interview in 2019 that talks with Thibaut Courtois and Luka Modric persuaded him to chase his dream of joining Real.

On Tuesday, Secretary of State for Transport Grant Shapps also confirmed the Government is working on a vaccine passport-style app.

While holidaymakers may be keen to plan their next international jaunt, one travel money expert has warned Britons to proceed with caution.

James Lynn, co-CEO and co-founder of Currensea explained: “It is beginning to look more and more likely that international travel will be back on the cards this Summer with the announcements this week that Spain will be welcoming tourists back in June and the NHS app will be used as a vaccine passport for travel.

“While we await a more formal announcement from the Prime Minister around which countries we will be able to travel to (and when) it may be tempting for many to rush to book this year’s holiday and take out holiday money now in preparation.”

Mikel Arteta makes Thomas Partey prediction amid difficult debut Arsenal season

Mikel Arteta expects summer signing Thomas Partey to finish the campaign “in a really strong way” as he targets a run of games.

The Ghanaian was Arsenal’s marquee summer signing following his £45m move from Atletico Madrid.

He quickly made an impression with several dominant performances in midfield, but injuries have disrupted his debut season.

Partey himself has faced criticism as he struggled for consistency, but Arteta has defended the 27-year-old who he claims is still adapting to his demands and those of English football.

He said: “Hopefully we will see the best version of Thomas at Sheffield United on Sunday and against Slavia Prague next week.

Thomas Partey put in a commanding display at Man Utd earlier this season

“Now that he has got a sequence of two or three games I think we’ll see him finishing the season in a really strong way.

“It’s very difficult to make a proper assessment of Thomas’ performances so far because he has missed six months and that is a long time.

“He is still adapting to our way of playing, which is different to what he did at Atletico, but we can all see what he brings to the team.

“It’s about him finding the level of consistency that we need from him because he has the capacity that we can build a team that can play around him.

“The biggest difficulty he has had so far is that he has not been fit. Then every time he recovered, he missed the next game.

“He has not had time to prepare himself physically to play at the highest level and that has obviously had an impact because the Premier League[1] demands real fitness.”

Partey played in midweek as Arsenal[2] let a late lead slip against Slavia Prague in the Europa League.

Success in the competition appears their best route into Europe next term given they sit 11th in the league.

Package holidays: TUI, easyJet, Jet2, & BA updates following PM's latest travel prediction

On Monday evening, Prime Minister Boris Johnson[1] confirmed plans to push ahead with the next stage of his “roadmap” out of lockdown. However, he warned it might be too soon for Britons to begin to make international travel plans.

TUI

Following Boris Johnson’s most recent address to the nation, TUI issued an update for holidaymakers on its website.

“Following the recent announcement from the UK government, customers travelling from England will be subject to a new traffic light system with ‘green’, ‘amber’ and ‘red’ destinations,” reads a statement from the holiday provider.

“We are yet to receive the full detail for each category, including what the testing requirements may be and which destinations will fall into each of the categories. “

However, customers are assured their holiday will be protected by the firm’s “TUI Holiday Promise”.

“What this means is that if prior to your departure date you know that you will need to quarantine on your return to the UK, you will have the option to change your holiday to another time for free,” explains TUI.

“You’ll also be able to change your holiday for free if you’re unable to travel due to new testing or vaccination requirements.

“We also won’t take you on holiday to a destination that will require you to quarantine on arrival, or to any destination that’s on the red list.

“In this instance, we will cancel your holiday and you will be able to change your booking to another date for free, or you can request a full refund.”

TUI has further extended its “free changes policy” until the end of June.

easyJet holidays

The package holiday arm of easyJet has set out a restart date of May 17, in accordance with Government guidelines.

All holidays up to and including May 16, 2021, are now cancelled.

In a statement, the holiday provider explained: “We’re continually working through how COVID-19 may impact future bookings in departure date order.

“If your holiday becomes affected, we’ll let you know as soon as we can.”

It added: “We’re continuing to closely follow announcements from the UK government, and work closely with our fantastic hoteliers and dedicated in-destination partners to ensure we have the measures in place to make our trips enjoyable and safe – meaning you can holiday with confidence.”

Customers who have their travel plans cancelled are able to opt for a full refund of the option to rebook travel at a later date.

An easyJet spokesperson told Express.co.uk: “All affected customers will be contacted with their options, which include a full refund or taking advantage of a £100 off a future holiday incentive if opting to rebook their holiday for a later date.”

As part of its Protection Promise, customers are being given more flexibility to amend and cancel their holiday if they can not, or simply do not wish to go ahead with their initial plans.

“If you want to change your holiday with ease, we can make it happen. You’ll be able to change your holiday online yourself, with no extra fees until 28 days before departure,” easyJet’s website explains.

Customers who “change their mind” about holidays can also receive a full refund as long as they cancel up to 28 days before departure. This will be “free of fees”.

Jet2 holidays

Following the Government’s plans to exit lockdown, Jet2 holidays aim to restart travel from May 17 onwards.

This means all holidays prior to this date are now cancelled.

“If you’ve been affected by these programme changes, we’ll be automatically cancelling your booking with a full refund,” the Jet2 website explains.

“If you’re due to travel from 17 May 2021 onwards, we’ll provide an update closer to the time. “

Since the Prime Minister’s most recent comments on the future of travel, no further updates have been issues by Jet2 holidays.

Virgin holidays

Virgin Atlantics package holiday arm has updated its website following Mr Johnson’s latest update on the steps out of lockdown.

“The UK Government has confirmed it is to implement a new ‘traffic light’ system to support the safe reopening of the skies, including non-essential international travel,” reads the Virgin Atlantic website.

It continues: “The Government has yet to confirm which countries will be designated amber or green.

“In line with the UK Government’s roadmap, international travel will resume no earlier than May 17 2021 and this remains the case following the Prime Minister’s update. “

Customers are being given the option to change or amend their plans if they can not holiday for whatever reason.

“Where a Virgin Atlantic customer is unable to travel for any reason, we offer as much choice and flexibility as possible to help you change or amend your plans, with the option to make date change(s) or one name(s) change with the service fee waived, for a new travel date all the way until April 30 2023,” states the airline.

“You can also amend the point of origin or destination of your flights with no service fee.”

Customers who have had their holiday cancelled by the airline are entitled to a full refund.

John Barnes points out Thiago criticism and makes prediction for next season

John Barnes believes Thiago Alcantara has received “unfair” criticism during his challenging first campaign with Liverpool.

But he has no doubts the midfielder will come good next season to stamp his mark as one of the “top performers” in the Premier League.

Thiago joined the Reds for an initial £20million last summer and saw his minutes limited after suffering a knee injury in last October’s Merseyside derby.

He has been singled out for criticism during a disastrous Liverpool season and Barnes is among those to previously take aim at the Spaniard[1].

But the Anfield hero has changed his tune on Thiago and now insists the 29-year-old will flourish during his second season on Merseyside.

“I can sympathise with Thiago this season and how it has gone for him,” former England winger Barnes told BonusCodeBets[2] .

“Playing with no crowds can be tough for any player, especially one who has only been playing in England for less than a year.

“He’s joined a team who were playing well, compact and the best team in the Premier League[3].

Has Thiago been singled out unfairly this season? Have your say in the comments.[4]

“Then suddenly because of the injury situation, he’s now come into a team who are not playing well, as well as getting unfair criticism.

“The way that he plays with the team we currently have, things just aren’t working at Anfield and I do really feel for him as he is a top player.

“Thiago may feel that he needs the crowd for inspiration and to perform better.

“When the crowds come back, we may start to see better results for Liverpool[5], but I’ve no doubt he’ll be one of the top performers next season.”

Although Thiago is yet to register a goal or an assist for Liverpool, he has shown signs of improvement since Fabinho returned to midfield[6] to lessen the number of defensive duties demanded of him.

He is sure to play an important role in the run-in, with the Reds facing crunch trips to Arsenal[7] and Real Madrid[8] in their next two fixtures.
