​So the wait goes on for England to win their opening game at the European Championships. For the fifth time running, going back to 1996, England scored first, but could not hold on. Their opening match record is now played 9, won 0, drawn 5, lost 4.This was two points dropped, after a performance which at times was exhilarating. It was reminiscent of Euro 2004 in Lisbon when England led the defending champions France going into injury time, only for it all to go wrong. Wayne Rooney played that night up front. This time he was Englands midfield general, using all of his experience to support Eric Dier and Dele Alli, as well as providing the platform from which England could attack. He looked a natural in his new role.Jack Wilshere replaced him near the end, and did his cause no harm with his performance, but it seems unlikely Roy Hodgson will change his midfield trio. England manager Roy Hodgson reflected on a frustrating opening game In defence, Joe Hart did not have a great deal to do - the header which beat him was special. Gary Cahill and Chris Smalling subdued Russias central attacking threat, while full backs Kyle Walker and Danny Rose caused numerous problems with their surging runs forward. They both have speed to burn, but may be tested more by Wales.Up front, it was a mixed report. Adam Lallana produced some brilliant touches, the Russians were unsettled whenever he had the ball and his work-rate was terrific. However, he missed two very good chances in the first half, which could have completely changed the game. Adam Lallana impressed but needs to start taking his chances Raheem Sterling took every opportunity he could to run at Russia, but his decision-making could have been better and the fans were growing frustrated with him towards the end. Jamie Vardy on the left is one possible change Hodgson might contemplate.Harry Kane was a little subdued by his standards. He continued to take the set-pieces, before being replaced by Rooney and then Dier - with devastating effect! Daniel Sturridge may have to wait a little longer to start. Sterling under pressure Raheem Sterlings England place under threat, says Jamie Redknapp The lessons England must learn:1) score when you are on top2) be more ruthless in front of goal3) defend better at set-pieces Nick Collins is in France covering Englands Euro 2016 campaign England trail Wales by two points, but can still finish top of Group B - if they repeat this performance and add a couple of goals!Catch up with all the latest Euro 2016 news with Euro Breakfast each morning on Sky Sports News HQ from 6am Also See: England in wind-down mode UEFA threatens England Euro explusion Alcohol ban in senstive Euro areas Robson-Kanu: We can hurt England Romelu Lukaku Jersey.

It seems almost every time he shoots, the puck ends up in the net. Sharp had his second hat trick in five games and the Chicago Blackhawks avoided a rare second straight loss with a 5-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Friday night. The 32-year-old Sharp has 14 goals and seven assists in his last 13 games. He has 25 goals in 44 games this season, tied for the team lead with Patrick Kane. "I dont know numbers-wise," Sharp said when asked if he has ever had a run like this. "I think Ive felt like this a few times in my career. Its the result of the good players Im out there with making good plays, and all the hard work you put in as an individual. Its a good run for our team, its a good run for me, and hopefully we can keep it going." Sharp helped Chicago build a 4-1 lead, combining with Kane and Marian Hossa to score in a span of 4:04 early in the third period to give the Blackhawks a 4-1 lead. When the Devils narrowed the margin to a goal with 6:23 to play, Sharp iced the game, breaking in on Martin Brodeur with 1:28 to play and easily beating the NHLs winningest goaltender for his fourth career hat trick. "Its fun to play against a guy like Marty Brodeur, arguably the best goaltender of all-time," said Sharp, who only had six goals in last years lockout-shortened season that ended with Chicago winning the Stanley Cup. "You see guys like that on the ice, Jaromir Jagr as well, its crazy to line up against those guys." Duncan Keith had three assists and fellow defenceman Brent Seabrook two in the four-goal third period against Brodeur, who faced 24 shots. "They have three lines that can get you and their fourth line doesnt hurt them ever, either," Brodeur said. "We played them well, we were right there, and then they kind of took over. Theyre a good team and they showed it. Thats what good teams do." Marek Zidlicky scored twice and fellow defenceman Andy Greene once for New Jersey, which lost in regulation for only the second time in nine games (5-2-2). Both defeats have come against the Blackhawks, who lost in overtime to the Islanders on Thursday. "We played well for the first 40, then we hit the pause button," Devils forward Ryan Carter said. "Against a team like that, you cannot do that. Theyy can score at any time, and they pretty much did.dddddddddddd" Antti Raanta made 24 saves for Chicago, which is 11-1-3 against Eastern Conference opponents. Kane broke a 1-all tie with a great effort and some luck 90 seconds into the third period. Skating down the right boards after taking a pass from Seabrook, Kane centred a pass toward Brandon Saad in front of the net. The puck deflected off Zidlickys stake and past Brodeur for his 24th goal. Sharp, who opened the scoring, connected 74 seconds later with a great shot from low in the left circle that beat Brodeur over the shoulder. Seabrook set it up with a cross-ice pass from the right point. "He has that eye of the tiger," Raanta said of Sharp. "You can see it in the practice. He is trying to score every chance he has. When you do that in the practice it usually happens when you get the chances in the game." Hossa capped the outburst with a shot from between the circles over Brodeurs shoulder after taking a pass from Jonathan Toews, who also had two assists. That gave Chicago a 4-1 lead, but the Devils didnt quit. Zidlicky made the game close again by scoring twice in a little more than 6 minutes, with the second coming on a power play with just over 6 minutes to play. In their Dec. 23 meeting, the Blackhawks outshot the Devils 37-12 in a 5-2 win. It was a totally different game this time. It was competitive for two periods, and the best players on the ice were Brodeur and Raanta, who both stopped several good chances in close. After a scoreless opening period, Sharp gave the Blackhawks the lead. Toews set it up, taking the puck off Mark Faynes stick and finding Sharp between the circles at 1:34. It came seconds after Brodeur had stopped him in close. New Jersey needed 43 seconds to tie the game. Steve Bernier started a counterattack in the Devils zone with a pass to Stephen Gionta. He carried the puck into the Chicago end and lifted a pass to Greene, who slid the puck between Raantas pads.
