11 things we loved on day 11: Lingard, Alexander-Arnold, Fabregas & more

Quick Reads

Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea men all caught our eye on day 11 at the World Cup.

England stole the headlines with their 6-1 thrashing of Panama, but there were plenty of goals elsewhere as Senegal drew 2-2 with Japan and Colombia beat Poland 3-0.

We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.

Jesse Lingard

Oh yes.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

We really like Lingard, but this made us laugh.

Ian Wright & Roy Keane

The absolute definition of ‘good cop, bad cop’.


Sweden’s whole squad united in support of Jimmy Durmaz, who has been subjected to racist abuse since their loss to Germany.

Jamie Vardy

We’ve all been there.

Rene Higuita & Carlos Valderrama

Colombia were backed by two heroes for their win against Poland. Those barnets are still going strong.

Cesc Fabregas

You can take the boy out of Arsenal…


An absolute textbook header.

James Rodriguez

Juan Cuadrado may have scored the goal, but that pass…

James Rodriguez, again

He’s just very good.


Cheeky, lads. Very cheeky.
