In just a few days’ time club football will be back. Just relax, folks. We are, of course, in international football limbo, and although being down on qualification and friendly games is becoming a bit hipster, it’s hard to get excited about a narrow win over Malta, or the prospect of a 2-1 victory (it just will be, won’t it?) in Slovenia this midweek.
Alas, we have all learnt a few things. Yep, that’s right, from the Malta match. So what if the Mediterranean island are ranked 176th in the world according to FIFA, a win’s a win.
We saw the start of what may be a brief (although not as brief as Sam Allardyce’s reign) Gareth Southgate era, and he boasts a 100% record! We also watched another stuttering Wayne Rooney performance and witnessed a worrying occurrence at Wembley!
Want to know what that was? Well, @RyanJayBailey is on hand with his weekly video below. Enjoy!
