Couple of beauties today

Ecuador hosted Spain earlier today with a touching homage to Christian Benitez, who died of a heart attack last month at 27. However, with business on the pitch to take care of, Spain proved to be too much as new Manchester City player Alvaro Negredo, chipped this lovely backheel in.

Meanwhile, in Sarajevo, Jozy Altidore rallied the U.S. side to a 4-3 win over Bosnia and Herzegovina after a 2-0 deficit at halftime. Altidore notched three past Stoke City keeper Asmir Begovic in about a half-hour, including this strike on a deadly free kick. Paolo Di Canio must be salivating at his new signing!

At Wembley today, England was able to snatch a 3-2 victory over Scotland and a Sky Sports reporter reporting outside of the stadium prior to the match obviously looked like he was excited for these countries' first meeting in 14 years. Hope he's OK!
