    Portugal

    Agencies (Qasioun) - Portugal helped their chances of qualifying directly for next year's World Cup when Andre Silva's goal gave them a bruising 1-0 win away to Hungary, who played for an hour with 10 men on Sunday.

     

    France and Luxembourg played out a surprise goalless stalemate in Toulouse, despite the hosts having the lion's share of possession throughout.

     

    Belgium would have been all-but qualified for Russia with a draw against Greece, but goals from Jan Vertonghen and Romelu Lukaku rubber-stamped their progression - making them the first European team to book their spot at the tournament.
