Luxembourg stun Belarus in World Cup 2018 qualifier

The Belarusian national football team held another match in the qualification for the World Cup 2018.

It took place on the road, in Luxembourg, against the local national team.

The modest status of opponents was aggravated by their squad problems. But alas, Igor Kriushenko's Belarus could not earn three points even in this situation.

Belarus conceded one goal and could not equalize until the end of the game.

The shocking result of the Belarusian team made us remember the tragic defeat in Gomel 10 years ago. Back then Luxembourg scored the winning goal in the last minute winning 1:0.

In other games of the evening, France downed the Netherlands 4:0, while Bulgaria overpowered group leaders Sweden 3:2.

Belarus has thus lost even mathematical chances of taking second place and get to the World Cup Finals via the playoff.
