Poland – Netherlands 0:2, the Oranje guided Lewandowski, the Slovaks on their knees again

The Croatians were leading from the 47th minute after defender Sosa’s first international goal. In the 77th minute, Eriksen equalized, but soon after, substitute Majer scored three points for the home team, who made his mark after two minutes on the field. The world vice-champions must win on Sunday in Austria to secure a place in the Final Four.

Even before the fifth round, it was certain that France would not defend the triumph in the League of Nations, but with the victory over Austria, they revived the chance to stay in the elite group. Mbappé’s opening goal from the 56th minute was followed up by another striker, Giroud, who became the French national team’s oldest scorer at the age of 35 years and 357 days. The world champions have a point advantage over Thursday’s opponent.

In June, the Netherlands lost the only points in the Nations League so far with a draw against Poland at home, but in the rematch they have already confirmed their role as favourites. Gakpo put the guests in the lead in the first half, and Bergwijn added another goal after an hour of play. The 38-year-old goalkeeper Pasveer, the second oldest player in the history of the Dutch national team, kept a clean sheet on his debut in the national team.

The Oranje will finish the group at home against Belgium, which they defeated 4-1 in the first match. Thus, a defeat by three goals is enough for them to maintain the first position and a better mutual balance.

In the premiere under Italian coach Calzona, Slovakia lost 1:2 at home to Azerbaijan, its only goal was scored by Pilsen winger Jirka from the penalty spot. First place and advancement from group C3 was secured by Kazakhstan with a 2:1 triumph over Belarus. Turkey will also play at a higher level, having secured first place in Group C2 with a 3:3 draw with Luxembourg.
