Hi Jimmy, 

Both your sentences are in the simple past tense. It describes an event sometime in the past.

Since you are are raising a question in the present and the question is related to a past events, you may want to use: "still" 

Example: 

Do you still want to know about the soccer match ?

"Still' is an adverb that describe something that happened and exists up to the present moment. 

Hope this helps. 

Cheer, Lance
