Greetings to the regulars who religiously tune in and to any new readers who are locking in for the first time. You are all highly appreciated.
The weekend is well under-way but everyone around the country still has protocols to follow so I understand that it continues to not be your average Saturday.
However, with the Covid-19 road map rolled out, we can potentially start travelling abroad soon and there’s a particular trip to the Middle East in 2022 which I would like everyone to join me on.
Where am I talking about you ask?
Well, Qatar will be hosting the World Cup next winter and we here on SunSport will be bringing you live coverage on many teams across Europe and how their journey to the competition plays out.
This blog will be featuring 2016 European Champions Portugal who will be travelling to the wonderful city of Belgrade to take on Serbia at the Rajko Mitic Stadium.
It’s only match-day two of the qualifying rounds and things are already heating up.
Serbia’s World Cup Qualifiers eventually got off to a good start because they conceded the first goal in the opening 20 minutes, but the Eagles completely flipped the game on its head, running out 3-2 winners against Republic of Ireland.
As for Fernando Santos’ side, despite all their attacking talent and flair within the squad, Portugal had to rely on an own goal to help them secure the victory over Azerbaijan.
But in truth, the Portuguese accumulated 68% possession and had 15 shots on goal, the forwards just never had their shooting boots on.
Tonight’s game is shaping up to be a good one folks and when it comes to international football, there’s always that little bit more pride on the line in my opinion.
So make sure to keep your eyes peeled for the starting line-ups, team news and all the drama from the game.
