Danish captain Simon moves ever closer to Qatar, while Ballo-Touré gets two minutes in Senegal's win over Togo

Simon Kjær was the main Rossonero protagonist among players involved in the international matches played yesterday: With an authoritative performance in the centre of defence, the Denmark captain led his team-mates to an important win against Scotland (2-0, goals from Wass and Atalanta’s Mæhle) which is worth double in the race to Qatar 2022. After four matchdays, in fact, the Danes sit on maximum points in Group F with a five-point advantage over the duo of Israel and Austria in second place.

The other AC Milan player who took the field yesterday was Fodé Ballo-Touré, who made his fifth appearance for Senegal, coming on in the 88th minute in the 2-0 win over Togo: A win that kicked off the second round of African Qualifiers for Qatar 2022 in the best of the ways for the Lions of Teranga. The possible Rossoneri Derby in France v Bosnia (1-1) didn’t come to pass, given that Mike Maignan, Theo Hernández and Rade Krunić all remained on the bench for the 90 minutes of the match played in Strasbourg. Group D sees the reigning World Champions in charge with eight points from four games, with Bosnia being tied for third with Finland and Kazakhstan after two draws in their first three matches played.
