11 things we loved this weekend: TAA, Pickford, Wijnaldum, Messi…
England’s victory over Switzerland in the third-place play-off of the Nations League may not have been the most entertaining, but Liverpool and Everton men still found a way to catch the eye.
Elsewhere, England Women managed to start their World Cup campaign with a win, while Italy’s clash with Greece in Euro 2020 qualifying was particularly enjoyable.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.
Watching a goalkeeper lash home a penalty will never not be fun.

It’s still very, very weird that until recently he was behind both Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker.
Nine chances created ✅
Six by Trent Alexander-Arnold ✅
It remains 0-0 in extra-time between Switzerland and England.
