Is anyone missing the Premier League yet? It's been 10 long days since a ball was kicked in anger in English football's top flight, and I think we can all agree that it's about time that it, and domestic football around Europe, returned.

But that doesn't mean there wasn't some highlights from the international break. From England's uninspiring draw against Montenegro (who doesn't like confirmation that Roy Hodgson's men are, well, rubbish?) to Lionel Messi spewing up the contents of his stomach in Argentina's stalemate against Bolivia, there was plenty going on.

On top of that there were some pretty special goals as the cream of the world football crop helped edge their sides closer to securing a place at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Feast your eyes on this lot then ask yourself, do you really want domestic league football back so soon after all?
