Also: Newcastle United supporters have reacted angrily to attempts by the club and Alan Pardew to justify the lack of activity in the summer transfer window.



    The Independent:
    Manchester United believe their disappointing summer - which would have left them without a single new signing if Marouane Fellaini had not sacrificed £4m to seal a move from Everton - was the product of extreme circumstances in which David Moyes had only eight weeks to undertake his entire strategy in an unfamiliar market. Also: The uneasy truce came at 3pm yesterday, 16 hours after the transfer window had shut.

Also: Rio Ferdinand has hit back at claims Manchester United have messed up their transfer window and insists the Premier League champions can win every trophy this season...

Also: Wayne Rooney yesterday released a close-up picture of his ugly head wound after taking exception to criticism of his withdrawal from England's World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine... Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho's son has signed for Premier League rivals Fulham.




    THE TIMES:

Also: Wayne Rooney took the unusual step yesterday of defending his withdrawal from England's World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine by putting a photograph of his head injury online... Manchester United have cause for regrets at the end of a trying transfer window, but they insist that turning down the chance to sign Mesut Ozil is not one of them, despite his arrival at Arsenal in the most eye-catching capture of the summer.




    THE INDEPENDENT:

    Faced with the possibility of England being "unable to compete seriously on the world stage" because of a shortage of players appearing at leading clubs, the Football Association yesterday reverted to the default mode of English sport and set up a commission. Also: Wayne Rooney took to Facebook to answer those who questioned why a cut on the head should rule him out of England's World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine, by publishing a picture of the injury...

    THE INDEPENDENT:
    It is entirely in keeping with Roy Hodgson's rotten luck of late that tonight something should sour a straightforward, solid win over Moldova, and so it came to pass when Danny Welbeck earned a booking that means he is suspended for Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against Ukraine. ALSO: This morning the Buenos Aires Hilton will host an eclectic global cast. There will be princes, prime ministers, plenty of promises, awkward sports stars stuttering over speeches and almost certainly a fair number of immaculately attired children out to tug any heartstrings available. At stake is the greatest sporting prize a city can earn: the right to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games.




    THE TIMES:
    It was always taken for granted that England would win last night against Moldova, a team who only seem to make up the numbers in international football. They did so with ease, playing some nice football at times, but now come the real tests of nerve, quality and application in this World Cup qualifying campaign, starting against Ukraine in Kiev on Tuesday. ALSO: In this type of wet and windy weather which ultimately tested even Jonny Wilkinson's renowned loyalty to breaking point, Newcastle Falcons marked their return to the Aviva Premiership with defeat.



    DAILY EXPRESS:
    Two goals by Danny Welbeck helped England back to the top of their World Cup group but a ludicrous booking rules him out of Tuesday's crunch clash in Ukraine. ALSO: The Greg Dyke Show was interrupted by some football here last night and England seized the chance of some easy work and a timely boost to their wayward confidence.




    DAILY MAIL:

    Roy Hodgson blew his top last night as he lost yet another striker from the squad that will fight for England's World Cup future in Ukraine on Tuesday night. ALSO: The referee blew and Danny Welbeck shot. Maybe. Perhaps Welbeck shot and the referee blew. There really wasn't that much in it. Certainly not so much that it could justify what happened next.




    THE SUN:
    England mauled Moldova to boost their World Cup hopes - but boss Roy Hodgson was still fuming. ALSO: Gareth Bale was confronted by two pitch-invading yobs in Macedonia last night.




    THE MIRROR:

    Danny Welbeck scored twice to fire England top of Group H - but his big night was ruined by a crazy booking. ALSO: Gareth Bale was an £86million cheerleader last night as he was left on the bench by Chris Coleman as Wales slumped 2-1 against Macedonia.




    THE GUARDIAN:
    It ended up being a bittersweet night for England, full of goals to send the crowd home happy, buoyed by the news that Montenegro and Poland had drawn elsewhere in Group H, but also a measure of regret about the fact Danny Welbeck has been added to the list of absentees for the assignment against Ukraine and that Roy Hodgson is probably now down to two strikers, both of whom would ordinarily be bench-warmers. ALSO: It is the hope that killed the Republic of Ireland. For 30 minutes, Giovanni Trapattoni's team played with a verve and purpose in a World Cup qualifier that they sorely wanted to win but could not afford to lose.




    DAILY TELEGRAPH:
    England rose to top of World Cup qualifying Group H but this victory came at a cost. Danny Welbeck collected two goals but also a yellow card which rules him out of England's crucial game with Ukraine on Tuesday. ALSO: There was no disgrace for Scotland, who were never wholly subjugated in this defeat by a plainly superior Belgian side, but it was also apparent that the shoots of recovery witnessed in recent performances against Croatia and England will have to be carefully nourished if Scotland are to take significant comfort from a World Cup campaign that was strangled almost at birth.

    DAILY STAR:
    Two-goal Danny Welbeck suffered an agonising night despite being England's Wembley hero. ALSO: Manchester United coach Steve Round has defended boss David Moyes after the club's poor start to the season.

    DAILY EXPRESS:
    Rickie Lambert says England can bank on him to fire them towards the World Cup finals in Brazil. Also: Frank Lampard, poised to join England's centurion club tomorrow, is desperate to extend what could be his final season as an international all the way to the World Cup in Brazil.




    DAILY STAR:
    Frank Lampard and his England team-mates fear a defeat in Ukraine tomorrow will condemn them to a dreaded World Cup play-off. Also: Lewis Hamilton says that trying to win the world title this year will be like climbing Everest in swimming shorts after taking just two points in the Italian Grand Prix.




    THE SUN:
    Frank Lampard rallied England's World Cup troops last night, insisting: "We're going to Ukraine to win". Also: New FA chairman Greg Dyke will not be in Ukraine for England's crunch World Cup qualifier tomorrow night.




    THE INDEPENDENT:
    Frank Lampard said yesterday that he does not want his England career to peter out this year with another ignominious failure to qualify for a major tournament, as he prepares to win his 100th cap in the team's crucial World Cup qualifier against Ukraine tomorrow night in Kiev. Also: Three months and a cricketing epoch ago, England set their stall out against Australia. That was then and this is now.




    THE GUARDIAN:
    Frank Lampard has conceded he has entered the final year of an illustrious England career but, as he prepares to become the eighth man to gain 100 caps for his country, is determined to ensure his involvement at this level extends to an appearance at next summer's World Cup finals in Brazil. Also: It could well become a pub quiz question. Which Olympic contest pitted the actor Billy Baldwin against Fidel Castro's son and ended with a sport that has 3,000 years of Olympic history being dropped only to be reinstated months later?




    DAILY MIRROR:
    New FA chairman Greg Dyke will miss England's crunch game in Ukraine tomorrow - because of a business meeting. Also: Frank Lampard last night insisted England did not deserve to be "written off for 50 years of failure".




    DAILY TELEGRAPH:
    When Frank Lampard reaches a century of England caps in Kiev tomorrow, he will briefly recall an excruciating scene at a 1996 West Ham United fans' forum at Rollerbowl, Romford's premier ten-pin venue. One irate supporter, related to a young player called Scott Canham who could not get in Harry Redknapp's side, was berating the manager for persisting with his nephew Lampard, the son of his assistant, Frank senior. Also: They thought it was all over. And then it was not. Lewis Hamilton angrily conceded defeat in this year's title race after his ninth-place finish in the Italian Grand Prix yesterday left him a massive 81 points behind Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel with just seven races remaining.




    THE TIMES:
    Frank Lampard has admitted that his time as an England player is nearing an end, but he is desperate to finish on a high in Brazil next summer rather than have his international career cut short by failure to qualify for the World Cup finals. Also: Lewis Hamilton scoured his brain for a metaphor to describe the tallest of tall orders he faces if he is to be Formula One world champion this season.

    DAILY MAIL: Roy Hodgson admits the pressure is on him after claiming he could trust his team to get the right result in tonight's crucial World Cup qualifier against Ukraine. Also: Dan Cole was yesterday cleared of biting an opponent, but has been urged to start wearing a gum shield to reduce the risk of injury and any similar episodes in future.

    DAILY MIRROR: Roy Hodgson last night admitted he is feeling the heat ahead of England's "cup final". Also: West Ham fear Andy Carroll will be out for months after the England striker broke down with a recurrence of his heel injury in training yesterday.

    DAILY EXPRESS: Roy Hodgson admitted the pressure is building on England as he urged his players to justify his faith in them during tonight's crucial World Cup qualifier with a rejuvenated Ukraine. Also: Wales have increased security around their team hotel to protect the world's most expensive player, Gareth Bale.

    DAILY STAR: Roy Hodgson has urged England to show the spirit of Rome 1997 tonight. Also: Gareth Bale was so worried his Real Madrid debut was in doubt because of a groin injury that he insisted on a scan to put his mind at rest.

    THE DAILY TELEGRAPH: England stride from the short tunnel into the cavernous Olympic Stadium here this pivotal evening, players and manager drawing on the inspiration of momentous events in previous Olympic stadiums, in Rome 1997 and Munich 2001. Also: Tyson Fury has revealed his desperation for his father to be let out of prison to watch the "biggest fight of my life" against David Haye at the end of this month.

    THE GUARDIAN: With two home qualifiers to follow it is still some way short of crunch time for Roy Hodgson's attempts to guide his England team of greenhorns and greybeards towards next year's World Cup. Chris Coleman has not given up hope that Gareth Bale will declare himself fit to feature at some stage against Serbia tonight but the Wales manager has warned Real Madrid that it would represent a "big gamble" to start the world's most expensive footballer against Villarreal on Saturday.

    THE INDEPENDENT: Roy Hodgson would resent the suggestion that he had never faced a game of the magnitude of tonight's World Cup qualifier in Kiev. Also: It was the morning after the night before and she had had just three hours' sleep, but Serena Williams looked a million dollars. Or perhaps, to be more precise, she looked $3.6m, which was the prize money she had earned by beating Victoria Azarenka the previous evening to claim her fifth US Open title.
