While Cristiano Ronaldo kept moving up Europe's all-time scorers list on Saturday, a demoralizing loss to Bulgaria endangered the Netherlands' World Cup qualification. With two goals in Portugal's 3-0 win over Hungary, Ronaldo moved into fourth place on the all-time scorers list for European nations.

Soccer-Giroud proves his worth to France once again (Reuters)

A rare starter for his club Arsenal this season, Olivier Giroud once again proved his worth to France when he bagged a double in their 3-1 win in Luxembourg in a World Cup qualifier on Saturday. The powerful striker's 22nd and 23rd international goals lifted him to 10th on the list of France's all-time top scorers after being Les Bleus' leading marksman in 2016. "Even if he's got difficulties at his club, Olivier often scores for us," said France coach Didier Deschamps.

Teenager Matthijs de Ligt's dream debut for the Netherlands quickly turned into a nightmare as he handed Bulgaria an early goal in a 2-0 defeat for the Dutch in World Cup qualifying on Saturday. With France staying on top of Group A by beating Luxembourg 3-1 and Sweden thrashing Belarus 4-0 to go second, the Netherlands slid to fourth, behind Bulgaria. Coach Danny Blind conceded before kickoff he was taking a risk playing De Ligt who, at 17, became the youngest Netherlands debutant since Mauk Weber in 1931.

Soccer-Lukaku rescues draw for Belgium after Greece see red (Reuters)

Romelu Lukaku struck late to rescue a 1-1 World Cup qualifying draw for depleted Belgium on Saturday against a Greek side who were down to 10 men for the final 25 minutes and finished with nine. Lukaku's turn and shot in the 89th minute cancelled out the opener from Kostas Mitroglou, who scored just 18 seconds after halftime in the visitors' first real attack of the game, to keep Belgium top of Group H. Belgium, missing injured Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne, took advantage of Panagiotis Tachtsidis's dismissal in the 65th minute for a second yellow card as they subjected the Greek defence to a wave of attacks.
