Three games today, none of which are that exciting on paper to be honest. Belgium and Netherlands should win comfortably on paper, maybe Netherlands have the tougher assignment.

Arnautovic misses the game after receiving a 1 game ban for an allegedly racist tirade against Albanians after scoring his goal. It was noticeable that David Alaba was physically trying to force his mouth to stop!

Yeah I saw this and wondered how we got away with a one game ban - the answer being that the racist bit appears to have been unproven, and the ban is for "abusive behaviour" only. Not particularly impressive that. Obviously Austria v North Macedonia was never a game anyone was going to pay much attention to, but if it had been a higher profile incident you'd think there'd be huge backlash to this.

Not a bad game.
Excellent ref.
Good to see that the beard is alive and well in North Macedonia.

There was some talk pre-match that the card happy ref from Argentina would be all over the shop throwing out cards like confetti at a wedding. Didn't prove to be the case and yet another good refereeing performance, so far so consistent.
