We spent the whole of last week whining about it but there have been some big surprises, great goals and if we’re honest, we’re actually really enjoying it.

Here’s what you may have missed from Saturday’s action …


Germany made Depay

There’s something really weird about Germany not being good at football.

It may well just be a blip, but following their dismal World Cup campaign, Joachim Löw’s side are yet to score a goal in the UEFA Nations League and were thumped 3-0 by the Netherlands last night. 3-0!

Virgil van Dijk opened the scoring with a close range header …

Memphis Depay then added a second late in the second half …

Before Gini Wijnaldum completed the rout in stoppage time …

Bad news for Die Mannschaft but welcome back Holland. International football is better when you are good.


Gibraltar rock

The craziest result of the day saw Gibraltar pick up their first ever competitive victory when Joseph Chipolina (who plays his club football for Lincoln Red Imps) gave them a 1-0 victory over Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s Armenia.

Interestingly, this was Armenia manager Armen Gyulbudaghyants first game in charge, and look at the stats!

You could say it was sweet revenge for the Armenian FA making a massive pre-kick-off cock up and playing Liechtenstein’s national anthem by mistake.

Unfortunately, we’re unable to show you the game’s winning goal, but how about this for some amazing final whistle scenes instead …

Football. Bloody hell!


This time for Africa

There was loads more Africa Cup of Nations qualifying action on Saturday, and here’s a selection of it …

Tunisia narrowly overcame Niger in Group J …

And Morocco narrowly overcame Comoros in Group B …

An Odion Ighalo hat-trick helped Nigeria hammer Libya in Group E …

And elsewhere in Group E, South Africa put six past Seychelles …


Goal of the Day

How about this thunderbolt from Norway’s Ole Selnæs in their 1-0 victory over Slovenia?
