It's the international break, which is terrible. But sometimes the players do fun things! Take this goal, for example. Belgium are hosting Italy in a friendly match that has no importance whatsoever to any actual competition, and Tottenham Hotspur's Jan Vertonghen just did something super awesome.
What a great header past Buffon, who is still somehow playing football for Italy because he is a homunculus and not a real person.
Takeaways from this goal:
- That's a great header from Jan who was inexplicably wide open
- Belgium are apparently now #1 in the FIFA rankings ahead of Argentina, which is cool
- Radja Nainggolan has stupid hair
Vertonghen appears to be playing in his customary left back position for Belgium. Toby Alderweireld also started, though it looks like he's in central defense. Mousa Dembele started the match on the bench.
