The international break is in full swing and six Liverpool FC players were in action yesterday.
Virgil van Dijk returned to captain the Netherlands as they drew 1-1 against Norway in Oslo. Unfortunately, he dislocated a finger and had it pushed back in on the sidelines in a pretty gruesome sight to see. He was also accosted by a fan while doing his post-match interview and responded with a very Virgil casual shove.
In another European qualifier, Diogo Jota’s Portugal beat Ireland, with a dramatic 96th-minute game-winner by [redacted]. Caoimhin Kelleher was an unused substitute for Ireland at the Estadio Algarve.
Andy Robertson was skipper for Scotland as they fell in a 2-0 defeat to Denmark. Curiously, Robbo was played at right-back.
In a friendly, Kostas Tsimikas played the first half as Greece were beaten by Switzerland.
Over in African competition, Sadio Mane scored for Senegal. He opened the proceedings from close range in their 2-0 win over Togo. In another qualifier, Naby Keita’s Guinea drew 1-1 with Guinea Bissau.
