#1 Mind Over Money: Dinamo Zagreb defeat Chelsea 1-0 at Maksimir.
Chelsea spent over a quarter billion dollars on new players this summer transfer window. Dinamo Zagreb spent 7 million. Yet, the London Killer – Mislav Oršić – scored the game’s lone goal in a heroic Dinamo victory to open their Champions League campaign. Full story and highlights HERE.
#2 Luka Modrić can’t stop, won’t stop.
Luka Modrić turns the ripe ‘ol age of 37 this Friday, September 9th. Most football players have already retired at this point in their careers or are transitioning into coaching. Not Luka. He’s blasting ‘outside the foot’ bombs into the back of the net during Champions League fixtures. What a privilege to cover this man’s career.
#3 Another Perišić assist at Spurs!
You will be hearing this a lot in North London this season: “Cross by Perišić…Goooooal Spurs! Spurs were held scoreless for 75 minutes Wednesday night against manager Igor Tudor and 10-man Marseille. Then Perišić whipped in a perfect cross to Richarlison for the header. The Brazilian would bag another for a 2-0 Spurs win to open their Champions League campaign. Perišić hit Richarlison with the cross today. But you can safely predict he will get in at least 10 connections to Kane for goals this season.
