17 things we loved this weekend: Nani, Ndombele, Pogba, Pepe and more

Quick Reads

The knockout stages of Euro 2020 kicked off over the weekend and there was plenty of drama, goals and shithousery. 

Elsewhere, former Manchester United winger Nani rolled back the years in the MLS and Bukayo Saka was the victim of a brutal nutmeg from Marcus Rashford.

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


An absolutely ludicrous strike from the Man Utd icon.

Paul Pogba

Pogba makes this look far too easy.

Tanguy Ndombele

Ndombele decided to showcase his skills during a kickabout with friends.

Marcus Rashford

Rashford has cemented his status as the nutmeg king.

Gareth Bale

It’s safe to assume that Bale isn’t a big fan of VAR.


Classic Pepe.

Luka Modric

Modric could probably do this with his eyes closed.

Federico Chiesa

When he scored for Italy at Euro 2020, Federico Chiesa was following in his father’s footsteps.

Gianluca Vialli and Roberto Mancini

They’re a brilliant duo on and off the pitch.

Quinn Sullivan

Not a bad way to score your first professional goal.

Leandro Damiao

He’ll probably get linked with a move to Tottenham after this.

Facundo Silva

Goal scoring goalkeepers are becoming the new normal.

Marco Tilio

That’s what you call commitment to the cause.

FC Slovan Liberec

The greatest transfer announcement video we have ever seen.

Sunday League

We’re a bit annoyed that alcohol doesn’t have the same effect on us.

Bukayo Saka

Saka should definitely stick to the day job.

Denmark fans 

No Wales fans were allowed to travel to Amsterdam, but the Danes made sure the locals knew a football match was happening.
