Happy Wednesday to you all in Sportsmanland!
Today we are looking forward to England's clash with Poland in the latest of their World Cup qualifiers, as well as looking back on Tuesday night's games and gearing up to round four of Premier League action as it returns on Saturday.
So stick with us throughout the day. We'll have the latest on everything you could need.
Thank you for joining me for another evening of international action.
England were pegged back by Poland in injury time, Wales drew 0-0 with Estonia and Northern Ireland drew 0-0 with Switzerland.
Elsewhere tonight, Manchester City's women were knocked out of the Champions League in the second qualifying round by Real Madrid.
That's all from me tonight, we will be back with more football news tomorrow!
England's perfect run cam to an end as they conceded a late equaliser against Poland, after Harry Kane had given them the lead.
This puts the Three Lions on 16 points, with four games to play, and their solid midfield should see them to the World Cup.
Poland look strong as England head in at the break 0-0, but then things kick off on the pitch in a melee that ends with Harry Maguire and Kamil Glik both receiving yellow cards.
Meanwhile Wales are being held 0-0 against Estonia.
It's half-time in the second leg of a blockbuster of a Champions League qualifier and Manchester City trail Real Madrid at home 1-0, which means they are 2-1 behind on aggregate.
With no away goals, as things stand City, who finished two points behind champions Chelsea last term, are heading out of the UCL before the group stages.
In Warsaw England get underway against Poland while Wales have kicked off against Estonia.
With a hat-trick last night, Memphis Depay has emerged as a key component for club and country...
England go back to the side that thumped Hungary 4-0 in Budapest a week ago with Jack Grealish, Harry Kane and Euro 2020 hero Raheem Sterling leading the line.
Kalvin Phillips and Declan Rice will patrol the midfield and the usual back four are named.
It's so nice to have a settled England side.
Secretary of State Gavin Williamson, who is surely aware of all the good work Manchester United footballer Marcus Rashford has done over the last few years, confused meeting Rashford with England rugby player Maro Itoje.
The two don't look (or sound) anything alike.
Wales are back in action tonight as they host Estonia in a World Cup qualifier and Gareth Bale, fresh from his hat-trick at the weekend, has laser focus as his country target their first World Cup since 1958.
"We're just fully focused on trying to win the group," he said.
"If we win every game, we qualify. It's still in our hands, but there's a long way to go and we have to take each game as it comes."
Wales have picked up six points from their opening three matches and sit third in their group.
BT Sport have released the trailer for 𝙎𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙁𝙞𝙧𝙢: 𝙁𝙤𝙤𝙩𝙗𝙖𝙡𝙡’𝙨 𝙒𝙞𝙣𝙙𝙧𝙪𝙨𝙝 𝙎𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙮, which is out on the 28th September. This documents the importance that this generation of immigrants had on the England team and should be a cracking watch.
England's only loss to Poland in 20 previous meetings came way back in 1973, and The Sportsman's Joey Mills has delved into the archives to relive that forgettable moment in Sir Alf Ramsey's reign.
England manager Gareth Southgate and goalkeeper Jordan Pickford have spoken about the threat posed by Poland in Warsaw tonight. Remember, a win for the Three Lions would make it six from six in World Cup qualifying group I.
We mustn't forget that the sport's oldest knockout competition is happening tonight. There are a number of replays going ahead in the first qualifying round of the FA Cup.
Reece James was sent off and Chelsea's players surrounded the referee in their protestations. Those few moments at Anfield a couple of weeks ago have landed the Blues in trouble with the FA, who have fined them £25,000 for failing to control their players.
That'll teach them, £25,000 is a lot of money in football. At least it was in 1949.
If the various Premier League, Women's Super League, Champions League, Europa League, Europa Conference League and Carabao Cup games aren't enough to keep you glued to your TV screens, there's Women's FA Cup action resuming at the end of the month. And, the BBC have announced that the quarter-final between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur will be shown live in the UK.
Kane is on 40 goals for his country and is one of the hottest strikers in world football, but he could probably still learn a thing or two from the brilliant Erling Haaland. The Norwegian bagged three more goals last night in his national team's 5-1 win over Gibraltar.
Remember that change to the international calendar we spoke of earlier this week? It might be closer than we think.
Fifa president Gianni Infantino has told Sky Sports that there are too many meaningless matches and he's not comfortable with having competitions stop and start for international breaks.
FIFA president Gianni Infantino has said that the international calendar needs examination and there are too many 'meaningless matches' 🗓
Wales could move up to second spot in Group E of the World Cup qualifiers tonight when they host Estonia. Gareth Bale is two caps short of a century in the red shirt, and he's just five shy of Chris Gunter at the top of the all-time list of Welsh internationals.
Odsonne Edouard says he can't wait to get started under 'a French legend' in Patrick Vieira as he prepares for life at Crystal Palace after leaving Celtic this summer.
Old Trafford has a new exterior livery. We recognise Jackie Groenen and Bruno Fernandes, but who's that they're adding to the back of the East Stand?
Remember, tonight's trip to Poland isn't the last World Cup qualifier for England this month. Sarina Wiegman takes charge of the national women's team for the first time in clashes with North Macedonia and Luxembourg in mid-September, with her maiden squad having been announced yesterday.
Who are you looking forward to seeing back? 🥳
It looks as though Brazil's FA have asked Fifa to prohibit eight players from playing in the Premier League this weekend after they were refused permission to play for the Selecao during the international break. That's a big blow to a number of clubs.
It's 63 years to the day since Bobby Moore made his West Ham United debut.
Eight years on he was a World Cup-winning England captain.
The stuff of legend!
He's approaching the final year of his contract as England manager, but Gareth Southgate is set to discuss a new deal with the FA later this year.
After leading England to a World Cup semi-final and a European Championship final, few would suggest he hasn't earned it.
Bolton 3-6 Derby, Everton 2-1 Accrington, Preston 5-2 Burnley, Stoke 0-2 West Brom, Wolves 1-1 Aston Villa
Those were the results on 8 September 1888 when league football was played for the very first time.
Happy birthday to the English Football League!
France got back to winning ways last night, giving Didier Deschamps a timely boost amid some concerns about his long-term future.
The Sportsman's Hector Nunns looks at what the victory over Finland does for the national team and their manager.
After being snapped up by Real Madrid just before the transfer deadline, Eduardo Camavinga has arrived at Valdebebas for medical tests today.
Having been linked with a number of other top clubs during the window, a lot is expected of the 18-year-old.
It's England's turn tonight as they play Poland. Will they make it six wins from six in Group I?
Louis van Gaal was called 'defensive' by a journalist earlier this week. Last night he led the Netherlands to a 6-1 win over Turkey in World Cup qualifying.
Looks like the Van Gaal Show is still going strong.
Speaking of big results, how about the Republic of Ireland's draw with Serbia, earned with a late own goal.
The Boys in Green have really struggled under Stephen Kenny, but on Tuesday they snatched a point from Serbia, who are second in Group A, to give themselves something to build on going forward.
Teenage keeper Gavin Bazunu was simply brilliant.
How are we feeling this morning, Scotland fans?
Lyndon Dykes' penalty winner against Austria last night puts them up in second place in their qualifying group.
That was a HUGE result.
