Norway suffered defeat to New Zealand yesterday in their first game of the World Cup. Last year, however, the Scandinavian side earned a 2-0 victory over the Football Ferns, but Selim Ben Hmida raised warning signs over their defence in his match analysis from 2022. Did any of their issues in this previous clash reoccur in yesterday’s game?

Spain — the most valuable nation at the Women’s World Cup this year, according to Soccerdonna (part of Transfermarkt) — get their tournament underway today. Aitana Bonmatí is one of their most exciting players and we explain why in a scout report focusing on her talents.

Bayer Leverkusen’s Moussa Diaby is reportedly closing in on a move to EPL side Aston Villa, with Saudi side Al Nassr also said to be in the mix. We tipped Diaby to be PSG’s next big star in a 2019 scout report. Should Les Parisiens have held onto the dribbler a bit longer?

Andrés Iniesta has been a joy to watch throughout his career. At 39, the legendary midfielder has left J-League side Vissel Kobe, but his career may not be finished. He’s reportedly weighing up his next move, with Inter Miami, Saudi sides and Qatari sides all reportedly on the table. We analysed his move to Japan in 2018 — what kind of final impact could he still have at one final club?

That’s it for this week – we are back at the same time on Monday. Spread the word!
