Belarusian footballers, who will face the Czech national team in qualifying for the World Cup on Monday, lost 0-2 at Estonia. They suffered their fifth consecutive defeat and fell to the last fifth place with three points in Group E. The Estonians, who were helped in the first victory of qualifying by hitting Erik Sorga and Sergej Zenjov, are fourth with four points.
The Germans did not surprise, reversing the duel with the Romanians at the last minute and consolidating their lead in Group J after a 2-1 victory. They are six points ahead of North Macedonia and Armenia. The Dutch also celebrated the triumph today after a 1-0 victory in Latvia and remained at the top of Group G with two points ahead of Norway.
In Group H, the showdown for the head between Croatia and Russia continues. The vice-world champion won 3-0 in Cyprus and is 16 points ahead of “the team”, who won 1-0 against Slovakia.
The Belarus players entered the game with Estonia knowing that in the first match they beat their home opponents 4: 2. This time, however, they fell short in Tallinn. The Estonians took the lead in the 58th minute after Sorga’s shot and in the third minute of the time limit he sealed Zenjov’s final state. Karviná Sinjavsky’s midfielder also contributed to the victory by playing 80 minutes.
The Germans missed goalkeeper and captain Neuer in Hamburg in the game against the Romanians due to muscle problems. In the duel between home coach Flick and Romanian sock Radoie, the visiting coach had more reason to be satisfied from the start. The Germans were first called off on a penalty kick in the 8th minute after watching a video, and almost immediately after the counterattack they harvested after Hagi’s shot.
However, the quadruple world champion launched an attack and in the second half he defeated active Spartan goalkeeper Nita Gnabra. He has already scored the 26th goal out of 30 appearances for the national team. Müller took turns winning the favorite nine minutes before the end.
The Germans won the qualification for the fourth time in a row. The Romanians were not helped by the Slavia midfielder Stanciu, who was on the pitch for 81 minutes and received a yellow card. The second place in Group J was taken by the team from North Macedonia, which won 4-0 in Liechtenstein. Armenia lost points to Iceland in a 1: 1 draw.
An important victory for Latvia is won by the Dutch 1-0. It was enough for Klaassen to score three points in the 19th minute and “Oranjes” continued to lead Group G. The other Norwegians, who lost two points, played a 1: 1 draw on Turkish soil. It is the third with 12 points.
It is only thanks to a better score that the Croatian retains the lead of Group H ahead of Russia. “Sborná” won at home against Slovakia after a goal against home side Škriniar. The Croats won 3-0 in Cyprus. Despite Kramarič’s unrecognized goal in the 23rd minute, Perišič won within the time limit for the first half. The Croats didn’t even have to regret Modriče’s unchanged penalty, as ten minutes before the end Gvadriol increased their lead. The final state was sealed as part of Livaja.
