But the international break has actually been pretty decent and if you haven’t been following it, you’re missing out.

It’s all good though, we’ve got you covered …


Italy survive relegation

Some good news, at last, for Roberto Mancini’s Italy.

The Azzurri were in serious danger of being relegated from League A Group 3 (don’t worry, we still don’t understand it either) until Fiorentina’s Cristiano Biraghi popped up with a last-gasp winner against Poland on Sunday.

That victory sets up an intriguing meeting with Portugal – who are currently top of the group – in November.

And how about this for passion?


Scotland shoot themselves in the foot

Speaking of Portugal, they won 3-1 in a friendly against Scotland at Hampden Park on Sunday evening.

Wolves winger Hélder Costa – making his international debut – scored the game’s opening goal …

Before Euro 2016 final hero Eder made it 2-0 in the second half …

And how about this for a goal from RB Leipzig’s Bruma?

The hosts grabbed a late consolation with a pretty decent goal of their own …

But it was too little, too late and afterwards, Scotland boss Alex McLeish aired his frustration at his side’s rudimentary errors.

“You expect the top teams to cut through you with some majestic skill and leave you trailing but we were the perpetrators of our own mistakes,” he said.

If you’re able to speak Scottish, you’ll love this tweet …


Is this the worst penalty ever?

Serbia were held to a 0-0 draw by ten-man Romania in the Nations League on Sunday but it would have been a different story had Ajax midfielder Dušan Tadić not taken one of the most horrible penalties we’ve ever seen.

That Riyad Mahrez effort at Anfield suddenly doesn’t seem so bad after all.


Kenya believe it?

There were a couple of Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on Sunday too.

First up, Kenya won 3-0 at home to Ethiopia in Group F …

Before Guinea Bissau narrowly overcame Zambia in Group K …

But you knew that already, didn’t you?


Goal of the Day

This award goes to Kosovo midfielder Milot Rashica, who plays his club football for Werder Bremen and scored this belter in his side’s 1-1 draw with the Faroe Islands on Sunday.

Pow!

This one, from Montserrat’s Spencer Weir-Daley in the Concacaf Nations League, wasn’t half bad either.

Weir-Daley plays for Barwell in the Southern League Premier Division Central (the 7th tier of English football) and he probably doesn’t score too many like that one!
