17 things we loved this weekend: Iniesta, Alioski, Everton, Ceballos…
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.
He’s still got it.

He’s still got it, too.
Spare a thought for Nicolas Otamendi.
Qatar are are actually going to win the World Cup.
This is why he’s wanted by so many top clubs in Europe.
Brilliant skill by Gabriel Jesus! 🇧🇷🔥

Did he mean it? Probably not. Was it still great? Absolutely yes.
There’s a lot to enjoy about this goal.
There were a lot of good goals this weekend.
The USA may have beaten Chile 3-0, but it would have been much worse were it not for Endler’s display in goal.
We’re not sure what we enjoy most, the goal or the fact Colombia have a player called Roger.
Scoring goals like this China all these years after solving Arsenal’s midfield conundrum.
The Venezuela stopper made a superb double save against Peru in the Copa America.
What a way to win Ukraine the Under-20 World Cup.
Sure, the defending is crap. But the finishing is good.
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.
How did @ezgjanalioski respond to hate?
By going back to the restaurant and gifting his team jersey to the waiter who asked him to leave.

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