Northern Ireland maintained 100% record

Steven Davis led his team to their third successive win in the Euro qualifiers, the first time in their history. The skipper played the whole game as goals from Jamie Ward and Kyle Lafferty gave the visitors the win which took them top of group F.

Romania eased past Finland

Bogdan Stancu's brace earned Romania a win over host Finland. Florian Gardos did not play a single minute, which means he should be fit for Saints' upcoming game against Sunderland. Romania is just two points behind Northern Ireland in group F.

Last minute equalizer earned Ireland a point

John O'Shea grabbed a 90th minute equalizer as Republic of Ireland held Germany (apparently still suffering from a World Cup hangover) to 1-1 draw. Shane Long did not feature in the game.

Ronaldo 95th minute goal gave Portugal a much needed win

Portugal had to go the distance in their match against host Denmark, but skipper Ronaldo came up with the winning goal in the 95th minute. José Fonte did not play a single minute as Portugal now sits in third place with three points from two games in group I.

Serbia v Albania abandoned in the 41st minute

In the other group I match, with political tensions in the background, the match between Serbia and Albania was abandoned after a drone carrying a political message sparked a brawl between the two teams. Some Serbian fans also went into the pitch which prompt referee Martin Atkinson to call off the game. Southampton's Dušan Tadić started the game for Serbia.

France defeated Armenia 3-0

Morgan Schneiderlin completed an impressive 90 minutes for Euro 2016 host, France, as they defeated Armenia 3-0 courtesy of goals from Loic Rémy, André-Pierre Gignac penalty, and Antoine Griezmann.
