It’s a genuine enigma.

Dermot Corrigan @dermotmcorrigan

Trent Alexander Arnold experiencing terribly, however not obtaining much assistance from Salah or anybody else. Madrid plainly targeted location from beginning with Mendy and also Vinicius.

The clock is ticking for Alexander-Arnold with the Euros quickly coming close to, and also it’s tough to see him winning Southgate over after an efficiency such as this.

Victors: Eder Militao, Nacho

Having actually seen him, Trent & & Nat Phillips as more youthful academy gamers, each children trip has actually been entirely various to hop on that pitch tonight and also simply demonstrates how distinct an occupation path can be! – Great to see

It’s tough to see what extra Zidane can’ve asked of his protection.

Victor: Marcos Reus

As the club captain, no one is most likely really feeling the weight of Dortmund’s frustrating period greater than Reus. Also in a shedding initiative, signing up an away objective Tuesday needs to aid.
