Cristiano Ronaldo could secure his fifth partnership in Sunday’s final against Portugal. Vice-world champions Croatia want to avoid relegation but must beat Russia.
Qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is exciting until the last minute. On Sunday there will be direct duels for first and second place in each of the three European groups – thus for a fixed place in next year’s tournament. For the second-placed nations, there is still hope for one of the three “remaining places” that Austria can still get through the League of Nations. The relegation, which includes twelve teams, will increase to semi-finals by the end of March 2022 and finals without a second quarter.
Spain or Sweden. Taking advantage of Sweden’s slip, the Spanish national football team made a big step towards Qatar. The Iberians won 1-0 (1-0) in Greece on Thursday evening thanks to a Pablo Serbia (25th) penalty. With the return of star striker Slaton Ibrahimovic, Sweden lost 2-0 (0-0) to Georgia to move up to first place in Group B. A decision will be made this Sunday as to which country will qualify directly.
The Spaniards suggested action at the Spiros Louis Stadium in Athens throughout the season. The Swedes stumbled on Batumi when 20-year-old Georgian Kvicha Quartz from Rubin Kazan scored a brace (61, 77), scoring four and five in just the 11th international. The draw was enough for the Spaniards to take first place in Sevilla on Sunday. Only with an away victory could Sweden take a direct route. With Spain’s victory, Austria’s involvement in the relegation came close.
Croatia or Russia. Despite a 7-1 away win over Malta on Thursday, Croatia can only use a complete victory over Russia if they are to qualify directly for the 2018 runners-up. Russia, on the other hand, will need a draw in the split on Sunday. In their 6-0 win over Cyprus in St. Petersburg, Sbornaja really took the lead only in the second half, where Alexander Erochin, Fedor Smolov, Andrzej Mosotov, Alexisi Sutormin, Anton Zabolotnij and again Erochin provided clear conditions. Opponents Croatia were also in good spirits, with Ivan Perisic (sixth), former Salzburg duje Aleta-Carr (22), Mario Pasalik (39), Luka Modric (45 + 1) and Lvoro Majer (47, 64). ) And Andre Kramaric (53rd) on the shooting list.
Portugal or Serbia. Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo also has to worry about making his fifth World Cup final. He was only 0-0 against Portugal in the 183rd International in Ireland. The Portuguese could live well in zero in Ireland as the match ended after central defender Pepe was ruled out of the game, and a draw against Serbia on Sunday in Lisbon was enough. The first straight fight ended in a 2-2 draw, with both teams drawing. If there is a win in Dublin, nothing will change in the starting position. Serbia were out of action on Thursday.
