Scotland gain promotion to League A

The Scottish team will play in the next edition of the League of Nations among the sixteen best teams on the continent, after certifying promotion to League A on Tuesday by drawing 0-0 with Ukrainein a clash in which the Scots shone in defense.

If last Wednesday in Glasgow Steve Clarke’s men appealed to their greatest intensity to beat the Ukrainian team 3-0, this Tuesday in Poland, where Ukraine is forced to play their home games due to the war, they emptied themselves in defending.

A great defensive job that made it possible for Scotland to barely concede clear scoring chances and where the legs of the Scottish defenders did not arrive, the figure of goalkeeper Craig Gordon always appeared. The veteran Hearts goalkeeper, who will turn 40 next December, prevented the Ukrainian triumph by resolving in the 49th minute a long shot from Mykhailo Mudryk that seemed destined for goal.

Stops that allowed Clarke’s men to certify promotion to the first category of a League of Nations, which the Scots started in its first edition, the one played in the 2018/19 academic year, in the Third Division, League C.

Vlahovic and Mitrovic lead Serbia to League A

The Serbian team certified its promotion to the first category of the League of Nations, after securing a place in League A by beating Norway 0-2 on Tuesday, in a match in which the Balkans again showed their extreme competitiveness.

As happened last November when the Dragan Stojkovic snatched Portugal’s direct ticket to the Qatar World Cup, after defeating the team 1-2 in Lisbon with a goal from forward Aleksandar Mitrovic in the last minute of time regulatory.

Less agonizing on this occasion was the victory of the Serbian team against a Norwegian team, which after falling last Saturday 2-1 against Slovenia, in a clash in which the Nordics missed the opportunity to put promotion on track, disappointed again.

And that the meeting could not start better for the premises that arranged a minute into the game a clear opportunity to open the scoring in a shot by Erling Haaland that forced Serbian goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic to shine.

But if Norway can boast of having one of the best strikers in the world in their ranks, the Serbian team has little to envy, which he formed from the beginning with two attackers of the stature of Dusan Vlahovic, an Italian Juventus player, and Aleksandar Mitrovic, an English Fulham striker.

Names proper to the triumph of the Balkan team, since if Vlahovic was in charge of signing the 0-1 at 42 minutes with a first shot from and inside the area, at 52 Mitrovic, sentenced the victory Serbian to culminate a great play by Ivan Ilic with a perfect shot.

Two goals that allowed Serbia to ensure its presence, for the first time in its history, its presence in League A, the first category of the League of Nations that brings together the sixteen best teams on the continent.
