In the first round of the World Cup qualifier, Portugal met with Serbia Montenegro in a match that ended in controversy, leaving Cristiano Ronaldo to storm out of the game before it ended.
Although the match ended in a 2 – 2 draw between both teams, Ronaldo was furious because a goal he scored at the last minute of the game was denied. Even though replays showed that the goal should have been counted.
Belgium, the best team in FIFA ranking, drew with the Czech Republic. Netherland defeated Latvia by 3 goals to nil. At the same time, England won Albania by 2 goals to nil through Harry Kane and Mason Mount’s goals.
The international games continue this week with Wales playing against the Czech Republic, Belgium against Belarus, Portugal against Luxembourg, France’s meeting with Bosnia and England against Poland.
It is sure to be an exciting set of fixtures.
