11 things we loved this weekend: Wijnaldum, Van Gaal, Bielsa & more
Premier League football may have had a week off due to the international break, but there was still plenty of exciting action around the world.
There was a non-league hero, a baby’s heartwarming introduction to football and a pretty awkward anthem mix-up.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.
The greatest feeling in football.

There’s usually some doubt over whether someone tried to score from a corner. There isn’t with Carvalho.
We hope the PA guy didn’t bump into the Albania squad after the match.
