So no Jansson, no problem as Sweden coast past Luxembourg 8-0, putting the Netherlands on the brink of elimination, and making Dick Advocaat look like a fool.

Stuart Dallas and Northern Ireland have a big match against Norway today as well. So the international break carries on, and so good luck to the Leeds players who are playing for their national teams.

Also, hope everyone took advantage of Non-League day and took in a match of local, non-league football.
