The defending European champions Portugal edged past Luxembourg 2-0 away from home on Sunday to qualify for Euro 2020.
Bruno Fernandes broke the deadlock in the 39th minute and Cristiano Ronaldo added the second with four minutes remaining to ensure that Portugal finished second in Group B with 17 points, three ahead of Serbia who drew 2-2 with Ukraine.
Ronaldo’s goal took his international tally to 99, leaving him on the brink of becoming only the second player in history to score 100 goals for a national team, joining Ali Daei of Iran. The Juventus forward later complained about the quality of the playing surface at the Josy Barthel stadium.
Matthias Ginter was delighted to register his first international goal as Germany booked their place at Euro 2020.
The Borussia Mönchengladbach center-back opened the scoring in the 41st minute with an exquisite backheeled flick from Serge Gnabry’s low cross on his home ground.
Leon Goretzka doubled Germany’s advantage before a brace from Toni Kroos wrapped up a routine 4-0 victory against Belarus to move top of Group C.
