    “Quillan Roberts, the Canada goalkeeper at the 2011 U-17 World Cup, scored a late equaliser against England, having had possession for at least 15 seconds before scoring (it took another four seconds for the ball to hit the net).” We count 19.51 seconds before it bobbles in. Unlikely to be beaten."

    I think it's been allowed in past rounds when travel restrictions have prevented teams from entering certain countries for matches. However, if a federation wants to move qualifying games purely for economic reasons, like selling more tickets, you can expect FIFA and/or CONCACAF to deny the request.

    If Lille are out of contention in the league and out of the Champions League in December, both of which are pretty much certainties, their well-documented financial issues might see them looking to cash in one or more of David, Botman, and Sanches. Liverpool will always look at whether the player is right before making a move, no matter what the price. So, if David is really on their radar, and I hope he is, then that might be the perfect convergence of player, price, and circumstance to see them pounce.
    Also, on one of your above points, Naby Keita cost north of 50m, as well.

    Besiktas were probably the better team before the Dortmund goal, which certainly came against the run of play, and probably for a few minutes afterwards, as well. As the half has wore on, Dortmund are increasingly more likely to score the next goal, though. They're absorbing pressure and look very dangerous on the counter.
    Larin was looking really good through the first 20 minutes, and has been okay in the next 25. Atiba has been one of Besiktas' worst performers. He's been loose in possession through midfield at times, with one giveaway nearly leading to a Dortmund second, and as you mentioned, he was slow closing Bellingham down on the goal. The English commentators are giving both Canadians plenty of mentions, talking about Larin's international strike rate and twice mentioning his recent goal against the Yanks. Atiba's age, in comparison to Belingham, at one point, has gotten a couple of mentions, as well as a reference to his having scored a UCL goal for Copenhagen against Celtic 15 years ago. Weirdly, Radz got a shout as Canada's record UCL goal scorer.
     
    Edit: 2-nil to Dortmund on the stroke of half-time. Both Canadians in the screen when Haaland finished from in close, but neither looked to be greatly at fault. Larin buying a L1O club got a late mention, as well, just before the 2nd Dortmund goal. 
    Hutch apparently ran the most of any Besiktas player in the half, 3rd overall in the game, according to stats posted at half-time.

    They've been lively, and have attacked, but are a bit innocent in their own final third. Giving up this goal at the end of the half, very sloppy in a match when they have not been too sloppy at all. So a bit of a shame. 
    I think you are overstating Atiba's role, he's not playing in critical defensive positions and even on the first goal he was there covering when it may not be his role; anyways, that shot should have been stopped.
