In what can usually be the case with qualifying for a major tournament, we find an elite nation against a minnow, and this was the case this week as Germany, Belgium, Italy, and the Netherlands all won comprehensively.
Serge Gnabry (10) scored three for Germany after being deployed in the centre-forward position, and is joined in the frontline by Ciro Immobile (10), who bagged two goals and assisted another as Italy beat Armenia 9-1, and Yannick Carrasco (10), who was key in Belgium's eventually emphatic comeback versus Cyprus.
Georginio Wijnaldum (10), who captained his nation in the absence of Virgil van Dijk, scored an impressive hat-trick from midfield, while Kevin De Bruyne (10) was just as impressive for Belgium, scoring two and having a big hand in another two goals.
Russians Sergei Petrov (10) and Daler Kuzyaev (10) make the cut after both scoring, but the goals did come against San Marino, after all.
Loris Benito (10) scored one and set-up another two for Switzerland against Gibraltar, while Salvatore Sirigu (7.8) was comfortable enough between the sticks for Italy in a round which wasn't particularly glamorous for goalkeepers.
