With a win against England in a duel between two World Cup semifinalists, Belgium set the course for the Nations League final.
Coach Roberto Martinez’s team beat England 2–0 (2–0) and have been unbeaten in 24 home matches since September 2016. Thus the Three Lions have no chance of winning the group.
Youri Tielemans (10th) and Dries Mertens (24th) scored for Belgium at Leuven, where the Dortmund trio Thomas Munier, Axel Witsel and Thoren Hazard were in the starting line-up. In England, BVB youngster Jadon Sancho (20) came on the field in the 70th minute, with club colleague Jude Bellingham (17) unused.
Denmark (10) is second behind Belgium (10 points), behind Belgium (12 points). So there will be a direct duel for the group win between Belgium and Denmark in Leuven on Wednesday with a draw for the host team.
Offside goal saves Austria
The Austrians have won one defeat in a 2–1 (0–0) win against Northern Ireland.
Two late goals from Lewis Schaub (81st) and Adrian Grabick (87th) led the Northern Irish to a .FB team led by Josh Magnis (75th) for a third consecutive win. Scaub was just offside when there was an equalizer. There is no video assistant in the Nations League.
The selection of Franco Foda as the group winners in League B is still on the road to publicity.
De Boer celebrates first win – Italy for finals
The Netherlands finally celebrated their first win in the fifth attempt under their new bond coach Frank de Boer.
The Orange defeated Bosnia-Herzegovina 3–1 (2–0) on the day of the UN remuneration match, thus maintaining the possibility of a group victory in season A1. Bosnia, on the other hand, around ex-Schalke Said Kolasinac, on the other hand, has already been removed from the last game.
The better card for the “Final Four” in October 2021, however, is held by Italy, who are one point higher than the Netherlands after 2–0 (1-0) against Poland. The decision will be made in a remote duel on Wednesday, when Poland will face off in Bosnia and Italy in Orange.
English champion FC Liverpool’s Georginio Wijeldum ensured a clear position in Amsterdam with a double strike in the opening quarter of an hour (6th and 13th). Memphis Depay did not remove any doubts about success (55th). Smile Prevljak, who played for RB Leipzig six years ago, Chota (63rd).
De Boer, the successor of Ronald Cowman, who joined FC Barcelona in September, was the first coach in Elfetal history to fail to win his first four matches.
For Italy, Jorginho scored with a penalty kick (27th) and Dominico Birdi (83rd). Yuri Tielemans (10th) and Drees Mertens (24th) won for Belgium around Dortmund’s Axel Witsel and Thomas Meunier. His colleague Jude Bellingham (17) of VVB, who is the third-youngest player in the Three Lions’ international history since Thursday, was unused. Jadon Sancho was replaced with 20 minutes remaining.
Scotland remembers the second coup
Scotland missed a second coup in four days. After qualifying celebrated for the European Championship in the coming year, the Brevets lost to Slovakia with a 0: 1 (0 (1)). If they would have won, the Scots would have been unable to get promoted to the A-League.
Jan Gregus (Day 31) scored the day goal at Trnava. A win on Wednesday in Israel would still be enough for the Scots, coached by Steve Clarke. One point behind the Scots is the Czech Republic, in second place (1-0) against Israel, with Hertha BSC (7th) scored by Vladimir Darida.
Turkey recorded their first win in the B-Class thanks to Kenan Karaman from the Second Division Fortuna Düsseldorf. In 3: 2 (2: 1) over predecessor Russia, the 26-year-old scored 1 (1) (26th), 3: 1 with a penalty (52nd) by former Frankfurt Senk Tosun.
