In the Friday’s qualifying games to Euro 2020 we were witnesses of many goals, but mostly scored by favorites. England and France played their match, but they didn’t give any chance to their rivals.
In the first match took part Balkan national teams – Bulgaria and Montenegro. None of this time won the game, which ended with the 1:1 result.
Only one more game emerged no winner and surprisingly it happened in Portugal, where the hosts drew with Ukraine, even though they have a powerful squad. Cristiano Ronaldo appeared on the pitch for his national team for the first time since the World Cup in Russia. Offensive line, which contained CR7, Andre Silva and Bernardo Silva weren’t able to beat a rivals’ goalkeeper though and the match ended with the 0:0 result.
In the other games there didn’t happen any big surprises. Turkey has beaten Albania 2:0, Iceland stopped a terrible pass without a win, which has lasted since January 2018 and a match against Indonesia, mainly due to playing against small Andora. Similarly little Luxembourg won 2:1 against Lithuania, but our neighbors hasn’t been winning a lot.
The group favorites, England and France, didn’t disappoint. ‘Three Lions’ crushed Czech Republic 5:0 and Raheem Sterling scored a hattrick. ‘Les Bleus’ won 4:1 on away game against Moldova. Olivier Giroud scored his 34. goal for France national team and equalized David Trezeguet on the third place in goalscorers classification.
