Belgium and Italy were already ready for next year's scattered European Championships. The Russian national football team can look forward to two matches at home in St. Petersburg next summer.

A point against Cyprus away was the requirement to be clear already on Sunday, but the Russians were not satisfied with it. Denis Cheryshev and Magomed Ozdojev made sure the Russians had 2-0 already at halftime and after the break Artiom Dziuba, Alexander Golovin and Cheryshev increased to 5-0.

Jumpers heroes for Poland

Poland also fixed the European Championship ticket, but the home crowd at Stadion Narodwy in Warsaw had to wait long before their home heroes got holes in Northern Macedonia. Thanks to two jumpers. Przemyslaw Frankowski barely had to leave the bench before he had done 1-0 by Robert Lewandowski. The goal came in the 74th minute, the minute Frankowski was substituted. Arkadiusz Milik waited a little longer and had been on the pitch for twelve minutes when he did 2-0 in the 80th.
