World Cup Qualifiers review: Germany and Spain win leapfrogging Sweden

On Thursday night, Germany won a World Cup qualifying football match against Liechtenstein, while Spain, Russia, and Croatia also won – but not Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal, who were held to a 0-0 tie by the Republic of Ireland. Take a look at the World Cup Qualifiers review.

The majority of the action took place in Europe, and there were plenty of goals to keep fans amused across the continent, particularly in the Volkswagen Arena in Wolfsburg, Germany, where Hansi Flick’s team thrashed Liechtenstein 9-0. Die Mannschaft’s scores included Ilkay Gundogan (2), Leroy Sane (2), Marco Reus (2), and Thomas Muller (2) against a visiting team that was relegated to ten men with just nine minutes on the clock.

Meanwhile, to move to the top of Group B Luis Enrique’s Spain beat Greece 1-0, leapfrogging Sweden. Pablo Sarabia’s penalty was the difference-maker was, which put the beaten Euro 2020 semi-finalists a point ahead of Sweden, who lost 2-0 away to Georgia.

Against the Republic of Ireland, Portugal was unable to produce an away goal, but they did return to the top of Group A, one goal ahead of Serbia. They will now compete on Tuesday night to see who will qualify for Qatar automatically.

Meanwhile, Croatia scored seven goals in Malta, while it was raining goals in Russia when Cyprus was thrashed by a 6-0 football result at the Krestovsky Stadium. Although Sadio Mane of Liverpool was out with an injury Senegal fought back to a 1-1 tie with Togo in African qualifying. He was pulled off after less than half an hour, which will definitely annoy Jurgen Klopp if the ailment turns out to be serious. DR Congo, Benin and Mali were the other winners in that section of qualifying.
