Andreas Christensen and Denmark have all but secured their place at Euro 2020 after dismantling Gibraltar 6-0 in their latest Group D qualifier, while Jorginho and Emerson also helped Italy to a comfortable win.
Our Danish centre-back came on as a late substitute in their big victory, which leaves the Danes at the top of their group with just one game to play. They are a point ahead of Switzerland and three points ahead of the Republic of Ireland in third, but have a much superior goal difference.
Jorginho and Emerson both came through 90 minutes as Italy defeated Bosnia & Herzegovina 3-0 in Zenica. The Italians had already confirmed qualification to Euro 2020 as Group J winners prior to tonight’s fixture.
Kepa Arrizabalaga was an unused substitute as Spain defeated Malta 7-0 in Cadiz, with Alvaro Morata among the Spanish scorers. Spain had already qualified for next summer’s tournament prior to tonight’s fixture.
Earlier in the day, Willian was part of the Brazil side that were defeated 1-0 by Argentina in Saudi Arabia in a friendly, featuring for just over 70 minutes. Lionel Messi scored the only goal of the game on his international return, Gabriel Jesus missing a penalty for Brazil in reply.
Conor Gallagher was on the scoresheet for the England Under-21 side, as they defeated Albania 3-0 in a Euro 2021 qualifier to maintain the Young Lions’ 100 per cent record in qualifying.
The midfielder, currently on loan at Charlton, scored from just outside the area with a fine finish to make it 2-0, after Phil Foden had opened the scoring. Gallagher’s Chelsea team-mates Reece James and Marc Guehi also featured in the emphatic win, both playing the full 90 minutes.
Staying at the Under-21 age group, Billy Gilmour played the full 90 minutes for Scotland but his side slipped to a 1-0 home defeat to Greece after Dimitrios Nikolaou's last-minute penalty gave the 10-men Greeks victory at Tynecastle.
