As a result, he already has 115 goals for Portugal, putting him even further ahead as the player with the most goals ever for his country.

Serbia won against Azerbaijan and remains in the lead in Group A. Portugal follows one point from the Serbs, but the Portuguese have played one game less.

Group D

Kazakhstan – Finland 0-2

Ukraine – Bosnia 1-1

In France’s group, Ukraine has not seized the opportunity to catch up to Les Bleus. The Ukrainians were stuck on a 1-1 draw at home against Bosnia.

Group F

Denmark v Austria 1-0

Faroe Islands – Scotland 0-1

Israel v Moldova 2-1

In Group F, Denmark is the second country to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The Danes continue their phenomenal streak against Austria: eight wins from eight games, 27 goals scored and not a single goal against. Joakim Maehle (ex-Genk) scored the only goal of the match.

Scotland remains comfortably in second place after a frugal win over the Faroe Islands.

Group I

Albania – Poland 0-1

England v Hungary 1-1

San Marino 0-3 Andorra

In group I England surprisingly lost points at Wembley against Hungary. After a penalty foul on Loïc Nego (ex-Standard), Sallai gave the visitors the lead from the spot. The English did not go further than the equalizer of John Stones, but they do remain group leader. The English are therefore not yet qualified for the World Cup in Qatar, Poland follows on three points.
