Portugal Lose Automatic World Cup Ticket In Shock Loss To Serbia

ADVERTISEMENT

Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal on Sunday, lost the chance to qualify automatically for the 2020 World Cup.

The former European champions gave away a one-goal lead to lose 2-1 to Serbia in a Group A qualifier.

Renato Sanchez had opened the scoring for Portugal, but Dusan Tadic equalized in the 33rd minute of the game.

Aleksandar Mitrovic then climbed off the bench to grab a 90th-minute winner and complete a remarkable comeback.

The victory ensures Serbia takes top spot with 20 points.

They have three more points than second-placed Portugal, who only needed a draw to finish on top on goal difference and qualify.

Instead, Ronaldo and his team mates will head into the March playoffs with the other group-stage runners-up to try to reach Qatar 2022.
