Grealish finally called up.
Winks & Rashford, sent home over injuries.

Keen to see how he plays with a more talented lot.

Good to see that the Manchester kids are taking International Duty seriously.

Worrying from a stupidity level point of view.

It's your first call up and there's a pandemic going on.

Best of times it's dumb. During current times with all the precautions that are put in place it's worryingly stupid.

Wouldn't be surprised if one of the UK rags pays one of the girls off to go for a COVID test in the next couple of days.

Norway has made an enemy for life in Northern Ireland.

To be fair to them they did manage to score more than England did in this international break.

Amazing achievement by Ronaldo to reach 100 and 101 goals. Nice goal to reach it too.

Also amazing that he's played 165 times for Portugal. Despite being a targeted man his level of fitness is second to none. Never pulls out of an international break to rest a 'tweak'.

Final crazy stat:
Quote:
Almost half of Ronaldo's international goals have come since his 30th birthday - 49 goals in 47 games.

When southgate is starting a back 3 and 2 dms against Denmark it starts to get scary for next summer

Kane, sterling, and sancho were on an island

Formation literally looked like

3-4-0-0-0-0-3

Graelish looked good when he came on

International Break!

Denmark eking out a win against the ferocious Faroe Islands.

The Czechs have mighty Cyprus on the ropes.

The odds-makers are at odds on how to draw the betting line of the heavyweight matchup of the day....how do you set a betting line on Andorra vs. The Cape Verde Islands?

Ireland Slovakia is a strong argument against expanding the competition to 24 teams.

Having said that Duffy with as good a goal line clearance I've seen.

Yeah, which is why this playoff match is even happening. Ironically of course Portugal won it all in 2016 only because of expanding to 24, otherwise they were out in the group stages.
