Transfer window: Aubameyang, Giroud, Batshuayi and more – live!

David Squires on … the countdown to transfer deadline day Newcastle fans never have it easy do they?

46 mins: Peeeeep! Away we go again. Another 45 minutes like that would be perfect for Australia. Maybe even a sneaky goal. It’ll be interesting to see if Honduras adapt their plan because they really need a result here. Jurman gets a booking for a challenge on Lozano. “So frustrating that we cant watch the game in the UK!!!”Liz Wood via email You’re missing a good one Liz.
