World Cup qualification CR7 and Co push one rank one
Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo and his Portuguese have recaptured the spreadsheet in group A. A lean 0: 0 in Dublin against Ireland reached the European champion of 2016 to go from the pole position to the final against Serbia.
Before the final duel of the World Cup qualifier on Sunday (20:45 clock) in Lisbon, both teams are different at the top. However, thanks to the better goal ratio, Portugal would already be a draw for the group victory and the associated direct World Cup ticket.
A particularly sad Thursday evening in Dublin, Portugal s Pepe experienced. Ironically, in his record game, the defender saw the yellow-red card (81st) in the final phase because of repeated foul playing and is missing in the final on Sunday.
Pepe promised against Ireland to the oldest player who ever wore the jersey of the Portuguese national team. At 38 years, 8 months and 16 days, he exceeded the brand of the former goalkeeper Victor Dramas by 13 days.
