But the midfielder continues to put in high-level performances for club and country, scoring two in Slovakia’s 5-1 win over Azerbaijan to send his nation up to second in Group E.

2. Centurion Mbappe’s delightful dink

France bounced back from their 2-0 defeat to Turkey on Saturday by cruising to a 4-0 win away to Andorra. Kylian Mbappe opened the scoring for the world champions with a chipped effort from close range, capping off a fast break.

The goal was incredibly Mbappe’s 100th in senior football for club and country, a record he has achieved in 180 matches, all while still only 20. Mbappe was joined on the scoresheet by Wissam Ben Yedder, Florian Thauvin, and Kurt Zouma to send Les Bleus back top of Group H.

3. Marco Reus on fire in Germany rout

Germany had a torrid 2018 as far as competitive international football was concerned, with Die Mannschaft winning just one of their seven non-friendly games. After wins over Netherlands and Belarus, Estonia was up next and were the unfortunate recipients of an 8-0 thrashing.

The 30-year-old scored in consecutive games for Germany for the first time since March 2015, to take his tally to 13 goals for the national team – 23.1% of which have come in June 2019.

4. Edin Dzeko ends Italy run

Plying his trade in Serie A, you would expect Italy’s defenders to understand the risks of Edin Dzeko. But the Bosnian striker put his side ahead after 32 minutes on Tuesday evening in Turin, tapping in from close range after a good move.

5. Teemu Pukki scores again

Building on his 29 goals in the Championship for Norwich City, guiding them back to the Premier League, Pukki scored twice for Finland in their recent win over Bosnia & Herzegovina.

6. Romelu Luaku continues goalscoring run with Inter sniffing

Romelu Lukaku failed to score in his last eight games for Manchester United at the end of the 2018/19 season. His most recent goals for the Red Devils came in their 3-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain at the start of March.

At a time when Lukaku’s Man Utd future is in doubt about Inter Milan interest, the Belgian forward is certainly doing himself no harm if he wants a move away.

The Green and White Army remain three points clear of Germany at the top of Group C.
