2022 World Cup qualifiers: Spain, Serbia and Croatia qualified. Portugal, Sweden, Russia and Macedonia in the playoffs

Portugal’s sensational sports suicide by Cristiano Ronaldo, who loses 2-1 against Serbia at the Da Luz in Lisbon, closes in second place in Group A and will be forced to go through the play-offs in March to hope for qualification for the finals of the World Cup Qatar 2022. Having taken the lead in the 2 ‘with Renato Sanches, Portugal (which was enough equal to confirm the lead in the standings over the Serbs) got back from the goals of Tadic (33’) and Mitrovic, the latter scoring in the 90 ‘. Mission accomplished instead for Spain that in Seville beats Sweden 1-0 and flies to Qatar: for the Red Furies of Luis Enrique, who just equaled to celebrate, Morata scored in the final. With the same result, Croatia beats Russia in Split and overtakes them at the head of group H: an own goal by Kudryashov was decisive.
