Belgium and the Netherlands win World Cup qualifying matches over Belarus and Gibraltar respectively. Let us point out that Portugal survived a rare fear before the beating of Luxembourg. Belgium defeated Belarus 8–0 to top Group E, while the Dutch beat Gibraltar 7–0 to overtake Turkey in Group G. Ronaldo scored his 31st goal in the World Cup, which started in the second half after Portugal’s win in Luxembourg.
For your information, let us know that Croatia, Serbia and Norway also won their group matches while Slovakia shocked Russia and Wales and started their campaign against the Czech Republic with a late winner. Belgium were defeated 1–1 by the Czechs over the weekend but assertively claimed their second Group E victory. The Netherlands could not quite match their neighbors Belgium, but four goals in nine second-half minutes helped them to demolish Gibraltar in Group G. The Netherlands have six points, one behind Turkey, who were surprisingly on a 3-3 draw at home to Latvia.
