Germany 3-1 Poland (Euro Qualifiers)

Germany hammered 3 goals past Poland as they picked up an easy win in the Group D match of the Euro 2016 qualifiers. Thomas Muller opened the proceedings for Germany in the 12th minute which was doubled by Mario Gotze within 7 minutes. Robert Lewandowski pulled one back for the away side just before half time. Mario Gotze scored the late winner to hammer the last nail in the Polish coffin. It was an all Bayern affair as all the goal scorers from either side play for Bayern Munich.

Joachim Low fielded Liverpool defensive midfielder Emre Can which was a big opportunity for the youngster at right-back. Also, Manuel Neuer, Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller were called back into the national side after they missed the game against Gibraltar.

Germany attacked and dominated the entire match as Bayer Leverkusen winger Karim Bellarabi did a fabulous job. The German was instrumental on the wing and created constant problems for the Polish defense.

Germany moves to the top of the standing in Group ‘D’ with 16 points from 7 matches.

Portugal 0-1 France (International Friendly)

France edges past Portugal narrowly last night in an international friendly game as the Les Bleus scored a late goal thanks to Mathieu Valbuena’s incredible free-kick.

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny had fantastic game for the French side as he was practically unbeaten. Portuguese attack consisting of Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani were unable to break the resolute French defense under the leadership of the Gunners’ defender.

Manchester United new recruits Morgan Schneiderlin and Anthony Martial were introduced in the latter stages of the game. Lyon striker Nabil Fekir partnered Karim Benzema upfront but, unfortunately, his injury forced Didier Deschamps to bring on Antoine Griezmann.

It was a well-fought game between the two sides, but Portugal conceded a late free-kick just outside the box after Jose Fonte brought down Griezmann. Mathieu Valbuena took an eye-catching free-kick which went in.

Bolivia 0-7 Argentina (InternationalFreindly)

A brace each from Sergio Aguero, Lionel Messi, and Ezequiel Lavezzi, along with a debut goal from Angel Correa, handed Argentina a 7-0 victory over Bolivia in Houston on Saturday.
Lavezzi scored the opening goal in the sixth minute as he latched on to Aguero’s through ball and drilled his effort low past Daniel Vaca. Argentina continued to dominate but had to wait until the 33rd minute for their second as Juventus midfielder Roberto Pereyra played a neat ball into the path of Aguero and the Manchester City striker neatly lofted his strike over Vaca.

Aguero and Lavezzi combined once again for Argentina’s third as the City forward weighted the ball into the path of the Paris Saint-Germain striker, who swept his shot under Vaca.
The pair combined to full effect for a third time for Argentina’s fourth after the break. Lavezzi crossed low from the right into the box and Aguero, aware of the Bolivia goalkeeper rushing out, delicately chipped the ball into the net.
Lionel Messi was introduced in the 65th minute and the Barcelona star was on the scoresheet less than 120 seconds. Milton Casco crossed from the edge of Bolivia’s box and Messi rose above his market to head low past Vaca.
Aguero registered his third assist of the evening to set up Messi’s second. The City striker played another fine through ball to split the Bolivian centre-backs and the Barcelona forward darted through before rounding Vaca.
Argentina signed off their comfortable win in style as two debutants combined for the seventh goal. Matías Kranevitter slid the ball through into the path of Angel Correa and the Atletico Madrid striker coolly struck the ball first time into the corner of the net.
