France were held to a shock draw at home to Luxembourg in their last qualifier to leave qualification in the balance - just three days after a superb performance in the 4-0 thrashing of Holland.

Defender Vasil Bozhikov made a stunning tackle to stop Alexandre Lacazette from doubling the advantage, before N'Golo Kante was forced to leave the pitch with what appeared to be a hamstring issue.

They now go into Tuesday's game against Belarus knowing victory will secure their spot at the World Cup in Russian Federation next year.

At the 84th minute, Arejen Robben scored with a penalty kick to put the Netherlands ahead 2-1, then Memphis Depay wrapped it up for the final 3-1 victory.

The result leaves the Dutch on 16 points from nine matches, three behind second-placed Sweden, who they face in Amsterdam tomorrow in the final Grouo A fixture.

But Hungary equalised 10 minutes after half-time as Sergey Balanovich led a counter-attack and found Maksim Volodko to slot his low shot out of the reach of Jasper Cillessen.

Les Bleus took the lead as early as the third minute as Blaise Matuidi fired home from close range after getting the ball from Antoine Griezmann. But we played like men.

Cristiano Ronaldo came off the bench to spare Portugal's blushes in a 2-0 win over lowly Andorra, with AC Milan's Andre Silva netting a late second.

'We have a quality group with lots of players.

France top the standings, but still have a long way to go, as the top four teams in the group have a shot at qualification.

Thomas Meunier had put Belgium in front after just four minutes, but goals from Haris Medunjanin on the half-hour and Edin Visca after 39 minutes put the hosts ahead going into the break.

In Group H, Greece moved above Bosnia and Herzegovina into second place by rallying to defeat Cyprus 2-1.

Spas Delev had the first half-chance of the second period after finding space outside the France box, but the striker curled his effort wide of the far post.

Another game in the same group between two teams with no hope of progress saw Gibraltar lose 6-0 to Estonia after goals from Siim Luts, Mattias Kait, Sergei Zenjov and a 25-minute Joonas Tamm hat trick.
