What a Sunday we just had with some football national teams taking on the scene to battle for a place in FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia but if there was something to remark it is Adam Lallana's in extremis goal to give England all three points in their first game after the hard to forget Euros campaign. Scoring at the 95 minute of the match against Slovakia, the Liverpool winger also saved Sam Allardyce from some bitter headlines.
Doing the front page of the Daily Mail, Big Sam also gave some credit to a coin that a fan whose son is in a wheelchair gave it to him and he said he had it in his pocket.
In the same paper, Chris Sutton criticised the role Wayne Rooney played on his 116th cap says that he can't choose where to play. "It's not a testimonial", he remarks. Sutton's point had some echoes coming from twitter's Moments UK asked their followers if they are getting some Euros' flashbacks.The lucky story is replicated on the Express and on the Mirror where there it's also a call to the three games suspension given by the FA to Sergio Agüero. The English football body denied any wrongdoing in this case.
Today is Italy's turn as the Azzurri take on Israel and Corriere dell Sport is encouraging their players including the four World Cup trophies won by them. On the other hand, La Gazzetta dello Sport focused in Giampiero Ventura's decision picking legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon as the squad leader.
Spain is also starting their quest to recover the title lost in Brazil two years ago facing Liechtenstein and Marca opens with the words illusion and dream to make it clear. They also inform that Real Madrid's goalkeeper Keylor Navas is going to miss three weeks due to an injury.Sport and Mundo Deportivo both from Spanish city Barcelona focused in Neymar and Messi respectively. Meanwhile the first one printed a full page picture of the Brazilian with gold dyed hair saying that he is a "Gold acquisition" , the other reflects on the fifth times Ballon d'Or winner regarding the injury he picked while playing for Argentina in a South-America World Cup Qualifier against Uruguay remarking the players own words saying that he is taking it easy and that he dyed his hair "to have a new and fresh starting".
