Donnarumma played one of Italy's Euro 202 qualifiers and kept a brilliant clean sheet as the Azzurri blew past Bosnia and Herzegovina 3-0. The young keeper has established himself as the clear starter and demonstrates his worth every game with acrobatic saves and insane reflexes. He added another clean sheet to his collection and helped Italy secure qualification to next year's Euro without losing.
Alessio Romagnoli played the second of Italy's two games against Armenia. The Milan captain and centre back scored an easy tap in from a rebound of a corner to register his second goal of the qualifiers and for Italy. The defender is currently fighting with Lazio's Acerbi for the starting spot alongside Leonardo Bonucci.
Lucas Paqueta's Brazil played two friendly matches against Argentina and South Korea where they lost to the former. Paqueta did manage to score a header against South Korea as he donned the no. 10 Brazil jersey. He did receive some criticism from former star Rivaldo over the choice to bestow the coveted shirt on him.
Krzysztof Piatek played the first of Poland's two qualifying games for the Euros. The striker scored the winning goal from a tap in against Israel to keep his side at the top of their group. The Polish striker was benched for the second fixture but has now scored five international goals since his debut last year.
