19 things we loved this weekend: Henderson, Messi, Sancho, Saka & more

Quick Reads

Football moved a step closer to coming home following England’s incredible 4-0 win over Ukraine in their Euro 2020 quarter-final. 

Elsewhere, Barcelona’s Lionel Messi got a goal and two assists against Ecuador as Argentina reached the Copa America semi-finals.

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

Ciro Immobile

It’s amazing what a goal can do for your injuries.





Jordan Henderson

Did Saturday night really happen? Yes it did.

Jude Bellingham

He’ll never forget where he came from.

Bukayo Saka

Undoubtedly, the purest photos of all time.

Luke Shaw

That confirms it. Shaw is better than Zinedine Zidane.

Ian Wright

It’s safe to assume that Wright enjoyed England’s win.


Could he be on for a Champions League-European Championship double?

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

What a journey Denmark have been on.

Chris Powell

This is about as wholesome as it gets.

Harry Kane

Kane celebrated a bit too aggressively with Declan Rice after England’s second goal.

Jadon Sancho

Manchester United’s newest superstar did not disappoint on his first start of Euro 2020.

Lionel Messi

There have been two free-kicks scored at the Copa America and Euros. Both of them by Messi.

Yerry Mina

It’s a good job Colombia went on to win the shootout.


What a prospect Barcelona have on their hands.

Joakim Maehle

That cross. Assist of the tournament?

Ben Brereton

His Copa America adventure might be over but at least we got this picture.

Jhegson Mendez

Ecuador might’ve lost 3-0 but at least one of their players did this.


They might be sh*thouses but they’re impossible not to love.

This own goal

MLS always delivers.
