DÍAZ THROUGH, IBRA AND LEÃO INTO THE PLAYOFFS

Brahim's Spain beat Zlatan's Sweden and are going to Qatar, Portugal lose at home and are into the playoffs

Of the Rossoneri involved on international duty on Sunday, on a vital evening in the race to reach Qatar 2022, the only player to get on the pitch was Zlatan Ibrahimović; the Rossonere's number 11 came on 28 minutes into the second half of Sweden's match against Spain (Brahim Díaz was on the bench) in Sevilla. Álvaro Morata's goal in the 86th minute sent La Furia Roja to the World Cup, forcing Sweden to go via the playoffs in March for one of the three final spots in Europan qualifying. Ibra didn't manage to spur his team on, having only had the one chance deep into added time that was cleared away by the Spain defence.

Joining Sweden in the playoffs, meanwhile, are Rafael Leão and Portugal. The Rossoneri striker was an unused substitute in the match in Lisbon against Serbia, who won 2-1 thanks to a 90th minute Mitrović winner. Over to African qualifying now: Fodé Ballo-Touré was not involved in Senegal's 2-0 win over Congo - a game that was a dead rubber given Les Lions de la Táranga had already booked their spot for the next round of qualification.
