Wasn't he literally the first to leave?

Lol maybe you should've stayed then

Yeah, Man City signed B. Silva just a week after Monaco's last game from 2016-17 season.

He was the first one to leave as well.

TIL Gattuso played for Rangers

Because they’re a massive club?

Heartwarming

You haven't followed football for very long, have you?

Why does his dad look younger than him

Kompany's head must be swelling with pride.

Good one... but just in case you were serious

Good one... but

I guess that puts him in rare Kompany

Rooney’s effect on DC United

Rooney’s effect on DC United

they also played all of the first set of matches on the road, Audi field opened on Rooney's debut

How do 10 wins and 4 draws equal 33 points since his debut?

quick maffs

Just to be clear, we also had our best defensive midfielder and our best keeper return to the squad around the same time as Rooney. Their impact has been almost just as great as his has. Hamid and Canouse have done wonders in positions that we were struggle with previously. We've actually decreased the amount of goals conceded in the past 16 matches by 15 compared to the previous 16, meanwhile we've increased our goal tally by 10.

Wonder goal on Portuguese 3rd tier

Lovely goal.

Trofense (the team who scored) and Mirandes

Smaller file? And can crop out everything but the goal without needing to edit the video?

MATCH EVENTS

1': We're off!

1': A curler from Jorginho! It flies past Szczęsny and smacks off the crossbar! Almost a lead within the first minute!

8': Insigne tries to chip the keeper from within the box but puts it over.

12': Bernardeschi fires and Szczęsny oddly opts to punch it in front of him rather than to safety, the Azzurri gets another shot off but it's blocked.

30': Chiesa with a sliding shot and he hits the crossbar yet again!

31': Jorginho runs into Lewandowski.

33': Jorginho is in on goal but a last-minute tackle from behind puts out the danger! The Poles launch a dynamite counter and Milik fires but Beraghi makes the block!

36': Szczęsny has to jump way up high to save a slow but trickily-placed bouncing header.

37': Bernardeschi tries from just inside the edge of the box but it's right at Szczęsny. Italy have almost all the shots but nothing to show for it.

44': Szczęsny again!! They just can't find a way past him.

HT Poland 0 - 0 Italy Italy have nothing to show for their dominant performance so far.

46': Jakub Błaszczykowski and Kamil Grosicki Karol Linetty and Damian Szymański

46': We're back!

58': Save by Donnarumma! Zielinski gets on the end of a long pass and fires, Donnarumma closes down the angle and makes the stop, he has to get off his line to punch away another chance.

59': Biraghi gets on the end of the cross but mishits it badly.

65': Insigne puts the ball in the net while the Polish defense stands there with their hands in the air waiting for a flag. And indeed, a flag does come. Very ill-advised pass from Verratti instead of shooting.

71': Big chance for Bernardeschi with a wide-open header and he misses by a large margin from pretty close range.

73': SAVE!! Grosicki in one-on-one with Donnarumma! He fires first time and the keeper punches it away! Milik gets the rebound and dribbles around Chiellini but misfires his shot!

76': Italy steals a terrible Polish pass in the backfield. They get it to Bernardeschi. Bernardeschi fires. Bernardeschi misses.

80': Kevin Lasagna Federico Bernardeschi

84': Cristiano Piccini Alessandro Florenzi

87': Artur Jędrzejczyk Arkadiusz Reca

90+1': Kamil Glik fires low through traffic. Donnarumma makes a nice clean save.

90+2': GOAL ITALY!!! It's the left back Cristiano Biraghi!!! Italy put in the corner kick and Biraghi slides in on the left to tap it in! https://streamja.com/njLd

12 different goalscorers scored Italy's last 12 goals

How does the most in form player in Europe not get even a minute

We won 2006 in a similar way really.

What you mean? Kevin lasagna went in /s

When you sub in Jedrzejczyk instead of an on-fire scoring machine

This is the nations league at work though, teams that skyrocket up the coefficient with now have to face tougher opposition to keep it.

Poland was definitely not the favorite in his group.

Let's bench a player who is in tremendous form and play fucking Milik who's notorious for performing badly for the NT haha lol what could go wrong oh and let's sub Jędzejczyk on because why the fuck not

Piatek would've won the game for Poland.

Can't believe Europe's most in-form striker didn't even play a single minut tonight.

FOR ASTORI

Biraghi is a well known cheese producer in Italy, with a serve from Lasagna, it was written

Had my "Portugal is the first team to make it into the UEFA Nations League final-four" post ready and everything...

It’s a bold strategy to wait for the 92’ to try changing system on your corner kicks.

When you can't win matches but you can win a Puskas Award nomination

tfw you score a fucking bicycle kick but you're lithuanian

I guess this is the most beautiful goal by a lithuanian

Talk about a consolation goal

Jorginho's shot off the crossbar

Jorginho's shot off the crossbar

Even his shots look like passes

I can’t remember the last time we scored an early goal, maybe a decade ago or so

lol this is the first decent shot I have seen from him ever, he is really bad at shooting and can only score from penalties (10 out of 18 goals total in his career)

Other than pens I don't even recall him attempting a shot for Chelsea
