German footballers won 4-0 at the North Macedonian pitch and became the first team to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Romania’s 1-0 victory over Armenia also helped them progress. The charges of coach Hansi Flick have 21 points in Group J and with an eight-point lead in the lead, two laps before the end can no longer be exceeded.
Wales, who are battling with the Czech national team for second in Group E, also celebrate a three-point gain to a 1-0 victory in Estonia, with Russia coming out on top, scoring 2: 1 in the field of Slovenia. On the contrary, the Croatian vice-world champions drew a home draw with Slovakia 2-2 and now they have lost two points against “Sborná”.
The Germans failed to advance against tenacious North Macedonia in the first half. However, Havertz scored the key first goal in the 50th minute, after which Werner added two more goals. Seven minutes from the end, he sealed the final state of Musial.
The four-time world champions paid their opponents a 1: 2 home defeat in March. It was then the last qualifying game for coach Joachim Löw, who was replaced by Flick on the bench after the Euro. Under his leadership, the Germans have so far won all five matches with a score of 18: 1.
At the world championships, German footballers will want to correct a failure of four years, when they have not even come out of the base group. So far, only Qatar, which hosts the tournament, has some participation alongside them.
The Romanians also helped the Germans to move from a distance. They won 1: 0 over Mitrita against Armenia and moved up to second place with 13 points. Spartan goalkeeper Nita kept an important clean-up account and Slavia Stanciu midfielder, who played 81 minutes, also contributed to the victory.
The Welsh players also celebrate the victory in the same proportion. For opponents of the Czech national team battling for second place in Group E, Moore’s shot in the 12th minute of the match was enough. Estonian midfielder Sinjavsky replaced the Estonians in the 57th minute. Although Page’s side are still third with 11 points, they have a good game against the Czech Republic.
Croatia lost their lead in Group H. The reigning vice-world champions lost to Slovakia after the 20th minute of play when Prague striker Slavia Schranz won.
Five minutes later, on the other side, Kramarič stumbled on a corner and equalized, but even without Hamšík injured, the guests came back in front for a break thanks to a shot from Haraslín. Although Modrič equalized for the Croats in the second game, the referees did not recognize Vlašič’s possible game-winning goal in the 83rd minute after viewing the video.
Russia are now closer to direct participation in the World Cup, and after winning 2-1 in Slovenia, they have taken a two-point lead. The table ends with Cyprus, who lost the victory over Malta in the eighth minute of the time limit and had to accept a 2: 2 draw.
The two-point hit is led by the Dutch ahead of Norway in Group G. The “Oranjes” outscored Gibraltar 6-0, the Norwegians beat Elyounoussi 2-0 after Montenegro. The third is the loss of two more points for Turkey, who only turned the game in Latvia thanks to Yilmaz’s converted penalty in the ninth minute of time allowed.
