2 – Football – Belgium
“Belgium give Belarus the shush treatment.”
– Optus Sport, Twitter
Belgium aren’t the world’s no.1 ranked team for no reason and they certainly reinforced that standing in emphatic style in World Cup European Qualifying with an 8-0 demolition of Belarus.
No less than 8 players got on the scoresheet and after giving the Belarusians the ‘shush’ treatment, the undefeated Belgians remain atop of Group E.

It was always going to be an enticing matchup on the darts board when father and son James and Joshua Richardson when head-to-head in a darts tournament.
The pair have no doubt had many tussles on the family dart board at home and this time around it was Joshua’s father James who claimed bragging honours when he dusted off his son in the best way possible, with a deciding leg 9-darter!

3 – Football – Salah’s nutmeg v misfiring Gunners
Who doesn’t love a nutmeg on the football pitch?
There’s no better exponent of the nutmeg than Liverpool magician Mo Salah who executed a mesmerising nutmeg in a classy goal against the Gunners.
It was all Liverpool at the Emirates with the Reds running out 3-0 winners and despite Diogo Jota’s brace, it was Salah’s nutmeg which stole the limelight.
Oh, Mo Salah: that is CHEEKY!
A brilliant nutmegged finish from the Egyptian to double Liverpool's lead at Arsenal!
