It sounds like Mitrovic has just tried and failed to execute a 'Panenka' penalty for Serbia against Montenegro.

I had a 46/1 sixfold on today's International games. Serbia, Azerbaijan, Kosovo and Sweden all won for me earlier today and this evening and my laptop was telling me Scotland were cruising to a win for me too. Unfortunately the fly in the ointment was the game I was watching on SKY where my selection Italy were playing pretty poorly in failing to beat Portugal.

O'Neill and Keane potted by Rep of Ireland.

Couldn't happen to a nicer pair.

I have never really bought into the MON hatred. He did a good job whilst here and left us in decent shape. I felt at the time his timing in leaving was possibly spiteful but even that is debatable and he may have felt he had little choice but to go. Lerner's waining interest and the appointments of McLeish and decision to give Lambert more time than he deserved did for us far more than anything MON did or didn't do. European football and Wembley visits were nice. After his impressive spells at Leicester and Celtic we probably squeezed the last of the best out of him because he hasn't achieved anything of note since leaving us.

He didn't achieve anything with us. Old 'arry over took him and less time got Spuds into the Champions League. Him and Lerner combined left us in the shit.

How about we hold the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. A totally unprepared country with serious human rights issues. Ignore the fact that so many rival football fans will be contained together in such a small area. In fact, how about we now decide to expand it to a forty eight team tournament. I suppose we could throw in another Gulf country to share the load. Not that any of this was taken into account during the bidding process but what the hell.

Grealish must be a shoe in for the Euros next year if he's playing in the Premier League. A Chelsea player with not one Premier League start makes the full England squad.

McLeish said in his interview after the game that Scotland started the game well, they were 2-0 down after less than 10 minutes.

He has taken up a newly-created role of Exec VP of the FAI. Smoke and mirrors.
