A first half goal from Marcus Forss helped 10-man Finland to a 3-1 victory away from home against Bosnia & Herzegovina.

The World Cup Qualifier saw Marcus find the net on 29 minutes with a goal from close range before Finland were reduced to 10 men after Jukka Raitala was sent off after receiving a straight red card for a poor challenge.

Having one less man certainly didn’t change who was leading, though, as Finland grabbed another five minutes after half-time when Robin Lod fired home. Bosnia pulled one back 20 minutes from time but straight after Finland hit back as they grabbed another through Daniel O’Shaughnessy who tapped home from close range.

The result leaves the Finns second in their group on 11 points from seven games. They are behind leaders France by four points after seven games as they occupy second place. Next up for them is the World Champions as they host them on Tuesday evening.

Halil Dervişoğlu grabbed two goals as Turkey beat Gibraltar 6-0 on home soil. Muhammed Kerem Aktürkoğlu opened the scoring on 11 minutes, before Merih Demiral, Serdar Dursun and Mert Müldür also found the net.

It was a big win for the side as they now sit second in their group, two points off top team Netherlands who have 20 points. Next up for Turkey is Montenegro away on Tuesday.

Frank Onyeka was an unused substitute for Nigeria as they beat Liberia 2-0 in World Cup Qualifying. The goals came from Victor Osimhen and Ahmed Musa and they were both from the penalty spot in each half. They currently top their group and will take on second place Cape Verde on Tuesday as they look in a positive position to confirm qualification for the tournament.
