UEFA Nations League is getting hotter every day. On Sunday, we witnessed two great results in London and Lucerne. England came from 1-0 down to win 2-1 against Switzerland at Wembley Stadium early in the evening. However, people are still talking about Switzerland 5-2 win against Belgium. The hosts were 2-0 down in the 17th minute but they fought back to book a place in 2019 semi-finals. Today, we want to recognize six best performers in the tournament last week.
6. Harry Kane- 1 Goal (Winner)

England came from 1-0 to beat Croatia 2-1 at Wembley Stadium on Sunday evening. The winning goal was scored by Harry Kane. He had gone for 7 games without a goal but he came to the party when it mattered. It was a must win for Three Lions because even scoring draw meant they were going to be relegated.
5. Memphis Depay- 1 Goal

Netherlands hammered France 2-0 in front of their home fans to get closer to a place in 2019 UEFA Nations League semi-final. This was their second victory in the tournament after hammering Germany 3-1 in October.

Holland goals were scored by Georginio Wijnaldum and Memphis Depay. It was the second time that both were scoring for the national team. Lyon winger panenka spot-kick against World Cup winner Higo Lloris was simply amazing. He gives the Dutch side a swagger that was missing for several years now.
4. Thorgan Hazard- 2 Goals
Belgium midfielder Thorgan Hazard must be having mixed feelings today because he scored twice for his country on Sunday night but they still lost 5-2 to Switzerland. For the first time in Red Devil colors, Eden Hazard was outshined by his brother. However, the heavy defeat overshadows the great performance by Thorgan.
