Quick Reads
Kylian Mbappe playing for France.

Europe’s top leagues may have had a week off due to the international break, but there was still plenty of exciting action around the world with World Cup qualifiers aplenty. 

The likes of France and Spain secured their place at Qatar 2022, while Sam Allardyce pulled out the dance moves during a charity match.

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

Kieran Tierney

What a tackle.

Another impressive record for the PSG star.

 

Roy Keane

Tell us how you really feel, Roy.

Gareth Southgate

Unsurprisingly, Southgate had a slightly different reaction to Maguire’s celebration.

Gavi

It’s easy to forget that Gavi is only 17 years old.

Angel Di Maria

No Messi, no problem.

Alexsandar Mitrovic

It’s fair to say that Mitrovic enjoyed himself after sending Serbia to the World Cup.

Christian Pulisic

A fantastic piece of shithousery from the Chelsea winger.

Michail Antonio

What a way to score your first international goal.

Gavin Bazunu

This save gets better every time you watch it.

Phil Turnbull 

Don’t you just love non-league football?

This steward

A man invaded the pitch during Canada’s vs Costa Rica. One steward saw it as a chance to try out for the NFL.

Mauricio

He got a yellow card for this. The ref later said that it was for acting “in a way that disrespected the game.”

Big Sam & Jay-Jay Okocha

Back in Bolton, recreating a classic moment.

Denilson’s aunt

Denilson was brilliant for Real Betis. But his aunt is even better by the looks of it.
