The Estadio da Luz was filled with enthusiasm for being able to qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup this Sunday and the atmosphere ended in a negative tone. Serbia defeated Portugal 2-1 and snatched the direct ticket to next year's event in the last minutes.

The tie served those led by Fernando Santos to access the most important football tournament, but it slipped away at the close. However, all is not lost for the Portuguese, who will have another chance to qualify in March.

It will not be easy, that is clear, but it is a last chance and there are three tickets at stake for the 12 teams that get the consolation prize of attending the repechage. The participants are already known, but the draw for the crosses still remains.

For the play-off, the 10 escorts from the UEFA Qualifying groups qualified, made up of, in addition to Portugal: Sweden, Italy, Scotland, Russia, Poland and North Macedonia, Ukraine, Wales and Turkey. Austria and the Czech Republic earned their place in the Nations League rankings.
