1 - Scotland earned their first win over Spain since November 1984 (3-1 in a World Cup qualifier), while this was just their third ever competitive victory against them (1957, 1984 and 2023). Spirited.
2 - Scott McTominay is the first Scotland player to score a brace against Spain since Mo Johnston in a World Cup qualifier in November 1984. Arrival.
10 - Kieffer Moore's opener was his 10th goal for Wales, the most of any player for the Dragons since his international debut in September 2019. Including one tonight, 60% of these goals have been scored via headers (6/10). Formula.
3 - Scott McTominay has scored in consecutive appearances for the first time in his Scotland career, with his three goals being three times as many as he had netted in his first 37 international outings (1). Flying.

50 - @OnsOranje recorded 50 shots and 101 touches in the opposition box against Gibraltar tonight, more than in any other match since Opta collects this data in full (Augustus 2013). Ineffective.
OptaJoe Retweeted ·  
16 - Nathan Aké recorded more shot involvements (16 - 9 shots, 7 chances created) than any other player tonight, with only Memphis Depay recording more in a single @OnsOranje match since Opta collects this data (Aug 2013). Attacker?

21 - The @USMNT is unbeaten in 21 straight matches against El Salvador (W16 D5), equaling its longest unbeaten run against any opponent in program history (21 straight vs. Guatemala). One-way.

Thanks to their data-informed approach, Brentford and Brighton are recognised as model clubs.

But what's interesting is that they crunched the numbers and each produced two distinct ways to win.

✍️ @sixtwofourtwo
1.88 - Tottenham averaged 1.88 points per game in the Premier League under Antonio Conte (P56 W32 D9 L15), the second highest figure for any Spurs manager (min. 38 games in charge):

1.89 - Pochettino
1.88 - Conte
1.83 - Villas-Boas
1.74 - Redknapp
1.64 - Mourinho

5 - James Maddison has created five chances today, the most by a player in his first @England men's start since Theo Walcott v Andorra in September 2008 (6). Claim.
8 - Aged 21 years and 202 days, Bukayo Saka has scored eight goals for @England; only Dixie Dean (16), Jimmy Greaves (16), Wayne Rooney (12) and Michael Owen (10) have scored more goals for the Three Lions as of Saka's current age. Winger.
23 - Bukayo Saka has been directly involved in 23 goals in his last 34 appearances for @Arsenal and @England, scoring 16 goals while providing 7 assists. Dreamy.
-2 - Chelsea have lost a @BarclaysWSL match by a 2+ goal margin for the first time in 89 games, with the previous occasion being a 0-5 defeat against Arsenal in October 2018. The Blues have also failed to score for the first time in 24 league games. Downbeat.
1+1 - Lauren Hemp has both scored and assisted in a @BarclaysWSL match for the 11th time, with only Vivianne Miedema (19 times) and Beth Mead (16 times) doing so on more occasions in the competition's history than the 22-year-old. Star.
39 - The highest scoring players in England's top five tiers this season, excluding penalty goals:

39 - Macaulay Langstaff
23 - Erling Haaland
22 - Paul Mullin
21 - Chuba Akpom
19 - Nicke Kabamba, Andy Cook

5 - Of Wales' last seven goals in all competitions, five have come in the final 10 minutes of the match, with three of those (including tonight's) coming in the 90th minute. Belated.
5 - Scott McTominay is just the fifth player to score a brace for Scotland after coming on as a substitute, after David Hopkin (1997), Billy Dodds (1998), Chris Burke (2006) and Lyndon Dykes (2022). Advantage.
22 - John McGinn has been directly involved in 22 goals for Scotland while playing under Steve Clarke (16 goals and six assists); more than twice as many as any other player in this period (10, Lyndon Dykes). Bagsman.
177 - Tottenham’s Kerys Harrop is set to make her 177th WSL appearance in today’s North London derby against Arsenal, joining Gilly Flaherty as the joint-leading appearance maker in the competition’s history. Occasion.

2.19 - As Bayern Munich manager, Julian Nagelsmann gained 2.19 points per game on average in the Bundesliga - it's the fourth best value of all Bayern managers in Bundesliga history. Sacked?
50 - Gareth Southgate has become the third manager to win 50 matches while in charge of @England's men's team, after Walter Winterbottom (78) and Sir Alf Ramsey (69). Gentleman.
1 - Mateo Retegui, who plays for Tigre in Argentina, is the only player in the history of Italy's men's team to score his first goal for the nation while playing his club football outside of Europe. Innovative.
54 - Harry Kane has the @England men's record for:

Goals scored (54)
Goals as captain (46)
Goals via penalties (18)
Goals in a single year (16 in 2021)
Goals in major tournaments (12)

With 53 goals, Harry Kane is level with Wayne Rooney as England’s record men's goalscorer. Barring something unforeseen, he’s going to break the scoring record – it’s just a matter of when.

We analyse the Opta data behind his England record ahead of tonight's game against Italy.

1 - Sheffield United are the first side from outside of the top-flight to reach the semi-final stage of the FA Cup since Reading in 2014-15. Spirit.
