Ronaldo worries about World Cup ticket
Serbia shocked Portugal in the 90th minute
World Cup without Cristiano Ronaldo? Can’t think? But no! The superstar will have to go on detention with his Portuguese and go to the playoffs for Qatar. At first everything is going wonderfully against Serbia, but then there is a delayed shock – after a dangerous carelessness.
The next participants are now fixed: Spain and Serbia have qualified for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Spain advanced to the playoffs with a 1-0 (0-0) win over Sweden on Sunday evening. Portugal’s first superstar Cristiano Ronaldo’s first Manchester United team gave a safe ticket on home soil at stoppage time against Serbia and had to tremble after 1: 2 (1: 1) seconds. This also goes to the playoffs.
Portugal took the lead early on due to the former Munich base Renato Sanchez (2nd). The Serbs put pressure, thanks to Dusan Dadic, they deserved compensation (33rd). At the stop, Alexander Mitrovic caused a commotion in Serbia. After a cross from Dadich into the box from the right, the striker pushed the ball into the nearest corner completely unprotected on the second post. Ireland beat Luxembourg 3-0 (0-0) to finish third in the group.
The match, led by German referee Felix Bryce, was dominated by Spanish players in the presence of their own crowd. However, it was too late for Alvaro Morata to score in the 86th minute. Sweden played in the starting line-up without their old star striker Sladen Ibrahimovic and rarely showed danger. Meanwhile, RP Leipzig (40th) Emil Forsberg missed the best chance. The second match of Group B was between Greece and Kosovo 1: 1 (1: 0). Giorgos Masouras’ opening goal (44th) was finally equalized by Amir Rahmani (76th).
