20th November – NEWZ as it happens

So on this chilly morning, only one space is left in the forthcoming World Cup. Any guesses for who will take that place?

Cristiano Ronaldo, scored a hat-trick to end Sweden’s hopes of a World Cup appearance last night. It was an action packed second half, with Portugal coming out on top. Zlatan Ibrahimovic did mange to score twice, but it just wasn’t enough for the hosts.

France came back from 2-0 down against Ukraine to secure their place in Brazil. Goals from Sahko, Benzema and a Gusyev OG sealed the win.

Iceland unfortunately did not qualify, as they fell to 10 man Croatia. Mario Mandzukic will face a ban for his straight red card. It will most likely mean a three match ban.

Greece are through to the World Cup also, following a 4-2 aggregate victory over Romania.

Germany beat England 1-0 at Wembley, but it was bad for Dortmund as both Mats Hummels and Schmelzer are both out injured for the game with Bayern this weekend.
