15 things we loved this weekend: Lukaku, Lewandowski, Diallo, Keane
While the league season may have ended, there was still plenty of entertaining football on display around the world over the weekend.
Manchester United‘s Amad Diallo enhanced his burgeoning reputation while on international duty and Romelu Lukaku maintained his excellent form.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the field.
Never change Roy, never change.
Roy Keane on Jordan Henderson… 😬
“Clearly Jordan’s not fit – I don’t think he should be involved… I’ve heard people say they want him around the place – for what? Does he do card tricks? Does he have a sing song? Does he do quizzes in the evenings?” pic.twitter.com/YhYaXxg8FX

Sixty goals in 93 international appearances is an incredible record.
Romelu Lukaku is the youngest European to get 60 international goals since Gerd Muller.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
Remember when Jorge Mendes won ‘Agent of the Century’? Pfft. Nothing on Choupo-Moting’s.

Thiago and Rodri
We could watch these two ping the ball about all day.
☺️ Si yo pudiera ver estos cambios de juego de Rodri y @Thiago6 en vivo… ¡No me lo perdería!

We doubt he’ll ever score a better goal than this.

An unorthodox yet effective piece of defending.
Wait for it👀🔥
