Goal from the Locker Room Stopped Bulgaria Against France

Goal from the Locker Room Stopped Bulgaria Against France

But a month later Emil Kostadinov scored a last minute victor at the Parc des Princes to give Bulgaria a 2-1 win and send them, just one point ahead of France, to the World Cup.

France were off to a flying start as a flowing team move ended with Antoine Griezmann teeing up Matuidi to blast home from a tight angle on three minutes.

Sweden had applied the pressure with an 8-0 thumping of Luxembourg, who held France to a goalless draw in their last outing, earlier in the day.

It was a nervy performance from the French, who endured long spells of pressure from the Bulgarians and saw N'Golo Kante pick up a hamstring injury after just half an hour, although victory at home to Belarus on Monday will secure their place in Russian Federation.

Nearly three weeks later, almost the entire island is still left without power, and the locals are left to fend for themselves. The island's infrastructure is the main culprit behind the lagging aid, not the US government.

Les Bleus top Group A with 20 points, one ahead of Sweden who crushed Luxembourg 8-0, and they will qualify directly for next year's World Cup in Russian Federation if they beat Belarus at home in their final game on Tuesday.

The Dutch trail Sweden by three points, and although they host the Swedes on Tuesday, the Organje will have to win by at least six goals or face missing out on a second successive major tournament. There's no one player who makes a difference.

But Hungary equalised 10 minutes after half-time as Sergey Balanovich led a counter-attack and found Maksim Volodko to slot his low shot out of the reach of Jasper Cillessen.

Thomas Meunier had put the Belgians a goal up inside four minutes, but Bosnia, still searching for points to secure a playoff place, rallied to lead 2-1 at the break. "We did not always play well but we were solid", added France captain Lloris.

A draw would be enough for Wales to stay in second place, but this wouldn't guarantee a play-off spot for Russian Federation 2018. There is still a chance for either side to top Group D , but that will depend on group leaders Serbia's result against Georgia .

Meanwhile, Portugal struggled against Andorra at the Estadio Nacional in Andorra La Vella. With one match left to play, Bulgaria finds itself seven points from the second spot in Uefa qualifying group A, which offers a spot in the play-off round.

The first booking of the game came in the ninth minute, when Simeon Slavchev was yellow carded for pulling back Kylian Mbappé.

Greece are in second place, two points clear of Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The hard work was done and all that remained in the second half was to see how many goals Switzerland could pile up.

Western Michigan and Buffalo break FBS scoring record in 7OT thriller
This would have been the seventh-highest-scoring FBS game in the nation over the weekend, just on overtime points alone. It lasted less than a year, as the combined 139 points are two more than what the Panthers and Orange accumulated.

In the other Group H afternoon kick-off, defender Joonas Tamm bagged a second-half hat-trick as Estonia trashed Gibraltar 6-0 at Estadio Algarve.
