Luxembourg won a World Cup qualifier for only the fifth time in their history as they defeated Belarus 1-0.

From the head to head match, the Netherlands had only one win and one draw.

Antoine Griezmann had put the home side in front after 14 minutes, beating goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen with a left-foot shot from inside the area after a quick one-two with fellow striker Oliver Giroud.

Since 2004, between the national team of France and the Netherlands, 5 matches have been played, of which 1 played a draw, one more was won by the Dutch, and three times France was the victor. France are obvious favorites, playing at home, with bet365 Sports posting odds in their favor at 1.55, whilst Holland roll in behind, but in need of a win at 6.50. The results of the national team of France were expected to lead her to the favorites, but the unexpected defeat in the last round from Sweden 2: 1, threw the French on the 2 nd line.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored three and set up another in Portugal's 5-1 rout of the Faroe Islands.

The Netherlands, who came third in the previous World Cup, failed to qualify for last year's European championships.

In Group H, Belgium maintained their advantage in first place with a 9-0 thrashing of Gibraltar courtesy of hat tricks from Romelu Lukaku and Thomas Meunier. But they had three back to back wins after two losses against Italy and Bulgaria.

The Dutch sit third in the Group A standings, three points adrift of joint leaders France and Sweden and a second loss of the qualifying campaign to France could effectively end their hopes of a place at next year's finals in Russian Federation.

It means Belgium will secure qualification for the finals in Russian Federation if they win in Greece on Sunday.

Portugal are nearly secure in the top two as well after Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo's fifth global hat-trick earned them a 5-1 win over the Faroe Islands.

The home side scored three goals in the final 25 minutes, with Pieros Sotiriou's deflected victor set up by Southend full-back Jason Demetriou.
