    How the psychology of Southgate got England to the final

    England manager Gareth Southgate says his team are ready to "make history" in the Euros final on Sunday.   

    The last time they reached a final in a major tournament was back in 2021, when England lost the COVID-delayed Euro 2020 final in a penalty shootout against Italy at Wembley.    

    On today's Daily, Niall Paterson looks at the build-up to the big match with our sports correspondent Rob Harris and assesses Southgate's use of sports psychology to build a winning team with sports psychologist and former colleague of Southgate, Michael Caulfield.

    Water: Bills to rise but how do we clean up the industry? 

    Water bills are to rise by an average of 21% over the next five years, the industry regulator Ofwat has ruled. 
     
    But with the impact of the cost-of-living, water companies spilling record amounts of sewage into our waters, and controversial bonuses for senior leaders, do we need a complete overhaul of the industry?  
      
    On this episode, Niall Paterson hears from our business correspondent Paul Kelso in Henley, on the impact for consumers, providers and our water ways. 
     
    Niall also speaks to Stuart Colville, deputy CEO of Water UK, which represents the water companies, asking why they disagree with Ofwat’s plans. 
     
    Plus, Feargal Sharkey, campaigner and former lead vocalist of The Undertones, joins Niall to share his reaction and the story behind his efforts to protect our rivers and seas. 

    For further background from Sky News, you can read Paul Kelso’s further analysis of Ofwat's business plans for Thames Water’s survival here.

    Ukraine hospital attack – and how the world reacts

    Ukraine has published what it says is "unequivocal" evidence a Russian missile hit Kyiv's largest children's hospital. 
      
    The Okhmatdyt hospital treats 20,000 people a year. A two-storey wing helping children with cancer was destroyed in the attack. 
      
    It's the deadliest airstrike in Ukraine for months - on the eve of a NATO summit and as China and Belarus start military exercises near the Polish border - what reaction can we expect? 
      
    Niall Paterson is joined by Jimmy Rushton, a Kyiv-based journalist and defence analyst, to hear more about the damage and the reaction from those in Ukraine's capital. Plus, he speaks to our defence and security editor Deborah Haynes. 

    For further background from Sky News, you can read more of Deborah’s analysis here, and our Moscow correspondent Ivor Bennet’s on Putin’s power play here.

    Finding a French PM: Who is Jean-Luc Melenchon?

    The left-wing alliance in France has won the most seats in a dramatic election, dealing a surprise blow to the far-right party of Marine Le Pen.  

    Le Pen's National Rally was aiming to become the biggest party in parliament for the first time but was stopped by tactical voting and collaboration between her opponents. 
     
    On this episode, Niall Paterson speaks to Europe correspondent Adam Parsons about the shock result and to Philippe Marliere, professor of French and European Politics at University College, about far-left politician Jean-Luc Melenchon and whether he could be the new French prime minister.
