In qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, European champions Portugal and Cristiano Ronaldo shot the frustration over the first point losses from their hearts, as did the world number one Belgium. Ronaldo himself made the decisive goal three days after his anger about the 2-2 in Serbia at the 3-1 (1-1) in Luxembourg.
After their 1-1 draw in the Czech Republic, Belgium made amends with a downgrading 8-0 (4-0) against Belarus. The Netherlands played in their 7-0 (1-0) in Gibraltar after the break in goal frenzy.
Meanwhile, former World Cup hosts Russia and Turkey were the next teams to lose their white vests on the way to Qatar. Russia lost 1: 2 (0: 1) in Slovakia and Turkey had to be content with a 3: 3 (2: 1) after a goal by the Düsseldorf legionnaire Kenan Karaman against Latvia despite a 2: 0 and 3: 1 lead .
As a result, Oranje, like Norway, was able to move up to one point against the Turks with a 1-0 (1-0) in Montenegro in Group G. Croatia took advantage of Russia’s defeat in Group H. The vice world champions celebrated their second success in a row against Malta with 3-0 (0-0) after starting problems and displaced Sbornaja from first place.
Ronaldo, who was denied the alleged 3-2 goal in stoppage time against Serbia, once again proved to be a guarantee of victory for European Championship champion Portugal. Six minutes after the break, the former world footballer corrected the situation after Luxembourg’s interim leadership with his goal to make the groundbreaking 2-1.
