At a pre-match press con­fer­ence, the El Salvador squad play an au­dio record­ing of some­one al­legedly of­fer­ing them a bribe to fix Tues­day’s World Cup qual­i­fier against Canada.

A 3-1 World Cup win away to Is­rael ex­tends Italy’s un­beaten run in qual­i­fy­ing games to 51 and en­sures that record will now stretch to over a decade. Gior­gio Chiellini is sent off for two yel­low cards and will miss Oc­to­ber’s cru­cial game with Spain.

Valon Ber­isha scores in a 1-1 World Cup draw in Fin­land as Kosovo take a point from their first com­pet­i­tive in­ter­na­tional at any level.

Gareth Bale goes sec­ond on the all-time list of Wales’ scor­ers, on 24, with two goals in a 4-0 win against Moldova.
