17 things we loved this weekend: Iniesta, Alioski, Everton, Ceballos…

Quick Reads

The 2018-19 season feels like it’s never going to end but, given the number of brilliant goals scored this weekend, we’re fine with that.

Between the Copa America, Women’s World Cup and Under-21 European Championships, there was plenty of exciting action.

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

Roberto Carlos

He’s still got it.

Andres Iniesta

He’s still got it, too.

James Rodriguez

Spare a thought for Nicolas Otamendi.

Boualem Khouki

Qatar are are actually going to win the World Cup.


This is why he’s wanted by so many top clubs in Europe.

Gabriel Jesus

Oh man.

Federico Chiesa

Did he mean it? Probably not. Was it still great? Absolutely yes.

Nicolas Lodeiro

There’s a lot to enjoy about this goal.

Dani Ceballos

There were a lot of good goals this weekend.

Christiane Endler

The USA may have beaten Chile 3-0, but it would have been much worse were it not for Endler’s display in goal.

Roger Martinez

We’re not sure what we enjoy most, the goal or the fact Colombia have a player called Roger.

Renato Augusto

Scoring goals like this China all these years after solving Arsenal’s midfield conundrum.

Wuilker Fariñez

The Venezuela stopper made a superb double save against Peru in the Copa America.

Heorhii Tsitaishvili

What a way to win Ukraine the Under-20 World Cup.

Usain Bolt

Sure, the defending is crap. But the finishing is good.

Gjanni Alioski

After the Leeds player was asked to leave a restaurant in Macedonia because he was speaking to his family in Albanian, Alioski responded as the bigger man.

Vivianne Miedema

To put how ridiculous this is into context, Miedema is 22 years old.
