The footballers of Belarus, who will be the opponent of the Czech national team in the qualification for the world championship on Monday, lost 0: 2 on the field of Estonia. They suffered their fifth defeat in a row and fell to the last fifth place with three points in Group E. The Estonians, who were helped to the first qualifying win by hitting Erik Sorga and Sergej Zenjov, are fourth with four points.
The Germans, who turned the duel with the Romanians at the last minute and did not consolidate their lead in Group J after a 2: 1 victory, were not surprised by their lead. They have a six-point lead over Northern Macedonia and Armenia. The Dutch also celebrated the triumph today after a 1-0 victory in Latvia and remained at the head of Group G two points ahead of Norway.
In Group H, the tussle over the lead between Croatia and Russia continues. The world runners-up won 3-0 in Cyprus and are 16 points ahead of the “team”, which won 1-0 over Slovakia.
The players of Belarus entered the match with Estonia with the knowledge that in the first duel they defeated their opponents at home 4: 2. This time, however, they failed in Tallinn. The Estonians took the lead in the 58th minute after Sorga’s shot and in the third minute of the set time he sealed the final state of Zenjov. Karviná midfielder Sinjavsky also helped to triumph, playing 80 minutes.
The Germans missed goalkeeper and captain Neuer in Hamburg in the match against the Romanians due to muscle problems. In the duel between the home coach Flick and the Romanian sock Radoie, the visiting coach had more reasons to be satisfied from the beginning. The Germans were first called off a penalty kick in the 8th minute after consulting with a video, and almost immediately from the counterattack they collected after Hagi’s shot.
However, the four-time world champions launched an attack and in the second half he overcame the Spartan goalkeeper Nita active Gnabra. He has already scored the 26th goal out of 30 matches in 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 Slavia Stanciu’s midfielder, who was on the pitch for 81 minutes and received a yellow card. The second place in Group J was taken by the team of Northern Macedonia, which won 4-0 in Liechtenstein. Armenia lost points in Iceland for a 1: 1 draw.
An important win from Latvia is won by the Dutch 1-0. It was enough for Klaassen to score three points from the 19th minute and “Oranjes” continues to lead the group G. The other Norwegians, who lose two points, played a 1: 1 draw on the Turkish field. This is the third with 12 points.
Only thanks to a better score does the Croatian keep the lead in group H ahead of Russia. “Sborná” won at home over Slovakia after Škriniar’s own goal. The Croats won 3: 0 in Cyprus. Despite Kramarič’s unrecognized goal from the 23rd minute, Perišič prevailed in the set time of the first half. The Croats did not have to regret even the unchanged penalty kick Modriče, as ten minutes before the end Gvadriol increased their lead. The final state was sealed in the Livaja setting.
