  The wrong right-back? Aaron Wan-Bissaka's best qualities are what make him unsuited to Gareth Southgate's England In England's surfeit of top right-backs, Manchester United's Aaron Wan-Bissaka may be the best defensively. That's the problem, writes Richard JollySome of that may not be true, but it is nevertheless notable that Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s decision to put the Congolese flag on his Instagram biography generated suggestions that he is changing his international allegiance. Or, as he played for both the Democratic Republic of Congo and England at Under-20 level, simply opting for the country he represented first.

That means Ibrahimovic should lead the Milan line once more and all eyes will be on how Roma’s back-three go about stopping the 39-year-old, who has five goals in four matches in all competitions so far; including a pair of Serie A braces in each of his two league appearances. What they've said

Serie A leaders AC Milan dropped their first points of the season despite a Zlatan Ibrahimovic brace when a defiant AS Roma came from behind three times to draw 3-3 in an enthralling game at the San Siro on Monday.

Ibrahimovic, 39, gave Milan the lead in the second minute before Edin Dzeko headed Roma level 12 minutes later after unconvincing goalkeeping from Ciprian Tatarusanu, who was deputising for Gianluigi Donnarumma after the Italian had contracted Covid-19.

Alexis Saelemaekers put Milan back in front two minutes after the break, but Roma hit back again in the 71st minute with a controversial penalty converted by Jordan Veretout.

a group of people watching a football game:                      “You go on and score the decisive goal,” coach Ottmar Hitzfeld instructed Dortmund midfielder Lars Ricken just before replacing Stephane Chapuisat in the 1997 final. It took the one-club man 16 seconds to follow his manager’s orders, his delicious chip – with his first touch – securing a famous 3-1 win.                                                                              It had been a game of substitutes: Alessandro Del Piero replaced Sergio Porrini at the break to re-energise the Old Lady after Karl-Heinz Riedle’s first-half double. Riedle had his own premonition, waking at 3.30am on the day of the game in a cold sweat. “I just dreamt that I’ll score two goals,” he panted.

Milan regained the lead with a spot kick of their own thanks to Ibrahimovic, making him the league's top scorer, but Marash Kumbulla equalised again for Roma with six minutes left.

Milan have 13 points from five games, two ahead of Napoli and Sassuolo, while Roma have eight.
