Belgium, DR Congo and the German U-19’s enjoyed wins.
On Saturday evening, there unfolded a spectacular World Cup qualifying clash between Belgium and Bosnia-Herzegovina. In the 4-3 away win for the „Red Devils“, VfL’s Divock Origi and Koen Casteels were in the Belgian squad, but didn’t play a part on the day. With the win, Belgium, who had already qualified for next summer’s finals in Russia, remain undefeated in Group H and top the table on 25 points. On Tuesday, October 10th (kick-off 20:45 CET), Belgium play their final World Cup qualifier against Cyprus.
DR Congo beat Libya
There was also a positive evening for Marcel Tisserand and the national team from the Democratic Republic of Congo. In African qualifying Group A, the ‘Leopards’ beat Libya 2-1 (0-0). Tisserand was in action over the full ninety minutes and helped his side secure their third World Cup qualifying victory. On ten points, DR Congo are currently second in Group A behind Tunisia (13 points).
DFB U-19’s prove convincing
The German U-19 national team, including Young-Wolves Gian-Luca Itter, Davide Itter (neither involved on the night) and Yari Otto (played throughout) were again successful in their second match in the second qualifying round for the European Championships in Finland. In Gliwice, Poland, the DFB eleven, coach by Meikel Schönweitz, racked up an impressive 7-1 (1-1) win over Northern Ireland and thus progressed to the second round. Otto got his name on the list of scorers late on (90’+2). In finishing out the round, the young German side will take on Poland in Zabrze on Tuesday (18:00 CET).
