Portugal, France book World Cup tickets, Netherlands eliminated

The Vasil Levski Stadium in Sofia will be a hostile ground come kick-off on Saturday night

Portugal and France booked their places in next year's Fifa World Cup after wins over Switzerland and Belarus respectively.

There's also a massive match in Group B, where second-placed Portugal host first-placed Switzerland - live on Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Main Event - with top spot on the line.

The Netherlands, finalists in 2010, will not be at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, despite a 2-0 win over Sweden on the night.

However, the Netherlands had gone into the fixture needing a miraculous 7-0 win to survive.

Didier Deschamps' side know a victory over Belarus - live on the Sky Sports Football red button - will book their place in Russian Federation next year.

France have to beat Belarus in the Stade de France to advance to the world's top tournament in 2018, and while that's obviously not a bad situation, France would have preferred to have qualification wrapped up far before the final matchday of the group.

Post-" Creed ", he's signed on to direct Marvel's first black superhero movie " Black Panther " which reunites him with Jordan . It earned Stallone an Oscar nomination in the Best Supporting Actor category, which he unfortunately didn't win.

It is a continued fall from grace for the Dutch - who fell well short of the seven goals they needed in Amsterdam to usurp their opponents.

Greece thumped Gibraltar 4-0 in Piraeus to claim second place in Group H, behind already qualified Belgium, and a spot in the playoffs.

Striker Kostas Mitroglou scored twice in three minutes just after the hour and substitute Giannis Gianniotas claimed the fourth in the 78th minute.

Eden Hazard opened the scoring in the 12th minute with what was the only goal of the first half.

Romelu Lukaku, returning from injury, later muscled past Cyprus defender Giorgos Merkis for Belgium's fourth.

In the battle for Group B's third place, Hungary narrowly defeated a dogged Faroe Islands side, whose ten points was an admirable total in a table dominated by two sides.
