11 things we loved this weekend: Pirlo, Gnabry, Hazard, Firmino, Sterling…
Some football fans may bemoan the international break, but there was plenty of action this weekend to excite supporters.
As well as the Euro 2020 qualifiers, there were some eye-catching moments in the lower leagues and a star-studded charity match at Liverpool.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.
Bloody hell, Serge.
Poor Michy Batshuayi makes football look incredibly hard here. Then Hazard makes it look incredibly easy.
The first goal at Tottenham’s new stadium wasn’t bad.
Just give the Bromsgrove player the Puskas Award now.

A trip to Liverpool saw Pirlo and some of his former AC Milan team-mates pay homage to The Beatles.

As nonchalant a touch you are ever likely to see, followed by some typically excellent Ray Hudson commentary.

We still can’t work out how the Southampton man missed this.
Playing against Spain looks like a nightmare.
A nice tribute after scoring his second against Czech Republic. Either he forgot after his first or was very confident!
Raheem Sterling lifted his shirt to show a tribute to Damary Dawkins when he celebrated his second goal. Dawkins was a 13-year-old youth team player from Crystal Palace, who sadly passed away with Leukaemia earlier this week. pic.twitter.com/hB4TzA89WL
