19 things we loved this weekend: Neymar, Ramos, Rashford, Haaland
Europe’s major leagues may have had a week off due to the international break, but there was still plenty of exciting action around the world.
Erling Haaland continued his incredible goal-scoring form for Norway and Neymar displayed his repertoire of tricks in Brazil’s 5-0 win over Bolivia.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.
Neymar is football’s great entertainer.

Kante can do a lot of things. Understanding the Scottish accent is not one of them.

David de Gea
After conceding six in his last outing, De Gea kept a welcome clean sheet for Spain thanks to this excellent save.
Meunier was able to see the funny side after conceding a penalty.

He’s a goal machine.

Genuinely uncomfortable to watch.
