Who ever said that the international break was boring?
If ever there were a counter-argument to that statement, Tuesday’s clash between England and Kosovo was it.
It’s tough to put into words how manic the game was at St. Mary’s. Eight goals, a missed penalty and a strike after just 35 seconds made for some very entertaining viewing.
Indeed, it was hard to describe the fixture, but luckily Trent Alexander-Arnold was on hand to sum it up quite well.

The right-back called it a ‘Mad game’, and that may be the most apt description possible.
It truly is a perfect summary of what we saw on Tuesday evening. It was a game that had everything you could ever want from what looked like it would be another boring run of the mill qualifier, unless you’re Roy Keane or Lee Dixon, who both fumed at the defensive display in the ITV studio.
In the end, England got the result they wanted, but luckily for the viewing public, it was a game that provided a lot of entertainment.
