The Wednesday night World Cup qualifying round goes into the books thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese superstar preserved his country from a surprising home defeat against Ireland and became international top scorer on his own.
Portugal-Ireland 2-1 (Group A) Initially it didnt seem to be Ronaldos evening. The recently returned to Manchester United missed a penalty after fifteen minutes of playing and saw John Egan record the 0-1 at a time. That stand remained on the signs for a long time, but Ronaldo has surrended Gavin Bazunu in the absolute final phase, with two powerful headings: 1-1 and 2-1, interlandgoal 110 and 111, and the European champion dethroned this summer, will take his group with ten points out of four games. Serbia and the surprising Luxembourg follow three and four points and have another match credit.
France — Bosnia and Herzegovina 1-1 (Group D) World Champion France left two points against Bosnia and Herzegovina at home. Les Bleus played with his tens for almost one half after a wild tackle by Jules Koundé on Sead Kolasinac. At that time, the 1-1 final score — goals by Edin Dzeko and Antoine Griezmann — was already on the signs. France has eight points after four games. Successor Ukraine tampered against Kazakhstan and is four points behind. Finland has two more matches and can match in points, but will have to win in France on Tuesday.
Denmark Scotland 2-0/Faroe Israel 0-4 (Group F) Denmark has an unforgettable European summer and is also on its way to the World Cup. The match against Scotland was decided within fifteen minutes, by hits by Daniel Wass and Joakim Maehle, and ended in 2-0: it was the Daness fourth victory in four games. Israel is second in the pool thanks to an Eran Zahavi hattrick. The PSV striker made its 27th, 28th and 29th international against the Faroe Islands.
