  • Richarlison vs Serbia - The best goal of the tournament thus far. By miles. Possibly of the entire cup? A great drive by Vinicius who served Richarlison the ball. The Tottenham Hotspur striker’s control was a bit high, but he improvised masterfully and connected on a bicycle shot to rocket the ball into the bottom left corner

  • Enner Valencia vs Qatar - Enner Valencia proved why he’s wearing the captain armband for his country. He’s in exceptional form and is playing at a notably high level. Not only did he score a goal in the 3rd minute which was overturned by VAR due to offside, but he calmly put away a PK just a few minutes later to give Ecuador the lead, and then gave us this beauty of a header to make it 2-0 and give Ecuador a comfortable lead that was never threatened to be reached by the hosts. Top-notch quality to get the WC under way.

  • Bukayo Saka vs Iran - The Arsenal star was at the double in the 6-2 Iran win, though his first was arguably the pick of the eight goals scored.
The ball dropped from a Shaw corner and Saka was free to leather a half-volley that shot up and over substitute goalkeeper Hossein Hosseini. His second wasn't bad, either.

  • Jude Bellingham vs Iran - The Borussia Dortmund teenager glanced in Luke Shaw's cross after some lovely build-up play to open the scoring, having endured a lengthy stoppage at the start of the game due to an injury to Alireza Beiranvand.

  • Mehdi Taremi vs England - For all of England's attacking quality, however, they still displayed some defensive misgivings which gave Iran their couple of goals.
Both were scored by Mehdi Taremi - previously of unbelievable overhead kick vs Chelsea fame - with the first being a snap-shot which whistled past Jordan Pickford's outstretched arms.
