This week’s round-up also features wingsuit madness, an miss that could make Ronny Rosenthal feel good about himself and post-truth era commentary
1) The climax of the World Cup qualifiers were as good as they have been in around two decades. Mo Salah single-handedly hauled Egypt to Russia 2018, opening the scoring and then holding his nerve to hammer home a 95th-minute penalty to beat Congo 2-1. It sparked wild celebrations on the streets of Cairo and it was all too much for this fan in his living room. Panama City witnessed a similar explosion of joy when Roman Torres lashed home a late winner to seal a 2-1 win over Costa Rica and turn the Estadio Rommel Fernández into a giant bouncy castle. Meanwhile, Lionel Messi scaled the heights in Ecuador with a sublime hat-trick to ensure Argentina will indeed go to the ball. And how do you celebrate becoming the smallest nation to qualify for the World Cup? If you’re Iceland, like this, of course.
