Group A: Portugal give away a 2-goal lead
Serbia 2-2 Portugal
Portugal’s 2 goals from Liverpool’s Diogo Jota were not enough to beat Serbia. In the second half, Filip Kostic and Aleksandar Mitrovic made up for the 2-0 break with his third goal in this qualification. In added time, Cristiano Ronaldo could have become the match winner. He scored the alleged 3-2, which was not given because the referees assumed that the ball was not behind the goal line. The team could not fall back on technical aids in the tight decision. There is no VAR in qualification. Ronaldo was furious.
