The results of our internationals


How are our internationals Strahinja Pavlovic, Franck Kanouté and Olivier Deman doing? Find out below!


After Serbia won 3-2 against Ireland last week, the Serbs drew 2-2 against Portugal in the qualification for the World Cup2022 last Saturday. Strahinja Pavlovic played the complete match. The Serbs first trailed 0-2, but eventually managed to come back to 2-2. In the final phase of the game, Cristiano Ronaldo seemed to be on his way to give the Portuguese the win, but an ultimate tackle by Mitrovic brought the ball back into play (whether or not already over the line). The draw means that after two matchdays already being played, Serbia leads Group A with four points, together with Portugal. On Tuesday at 18h Serbia plays Azerbaijan.

Franck Kanouté played Friday with Senegal 0-0 equal in and against Congo-Brazzaville. Kanouté came on for Mendy after 78 minutes. Senegal, which was already qualified for the Africa Cup, plays Tuesday against Eswatini.

Olivier Deman is working with the Belgian U23 team on a training week in Genk. Because of COVID, the youngsters don't play an friendly match, but a new qualification campaign for the European Championship 2023 is being prepared.

Ten-man Cercle win big against OHL to keep up the fight for survival

When Hoggas got a red card just after the half hour mark, Cercle seemed to have shot themselves in the foot in this vital match in their fight for survival. Still, despite being outnumbered, Cercle showed tremendous resilience and beat OHL comfortably, 3-0. With this result, Cercle took a big step towards staying in the top flight.

The Groen-Zwart showed its attacking ambitions from kick-off and that quickly resulted in some good chances. Romo was lucky after only two minutes that his clearance, rebounding off Ugbo, went wide and a few minutes later Cercle forced him into several saves. Cercel were definitely more eager, but had to watch out for the visitors on the counter. Halfway through the first half, Henry hit a curling shot that flashed just wide. On the half hour, Hoggas tried to pull out of a challenge on Assante, but the VAR had seen the tackle. The ref took the red card from his back pocket. It was a cruel outcome for the midfielder, and Cercle had to play an hour with ten men in a crucial match. However, the Groen-Zwart continued to get forward and were rewarded shortly before half-time. Ugbo took a pass from Deman and scored to make it 1-0.

OHL had shown little before half-time and came back of the dressing room with much more intent. A shot from the substitute Schrijvers ended up coming off the post. Still, it was the inevitable Ugbo that put Cercle in a dine position: a shot from Velkovski was only half-cleared and the Cercle striker reacted fastest to make it 2-0. Leuven increased the pressure and tried to pin back Cercle. However, the defense held up well and on a rare corner, the captain Taravel all but sealed the result as he climbed highest nodded home to make it 3-0 against the run of play. Cercle successfully defended its lead tooth and nail and when Henry came close to a consolation in the closing stages of the match, the goalkeeper Didillon was there to make a great save.

Cercle Bruges: Didillon, Decostere (88' Vitinho), Bates, Taravel (92' Cassaert), Pavlovic, Velkovski, Vanhoutte, Hoggas, Van Der Bruggen (88' Corryn), Deman (88' Hotic) and Ugbo (8' Denkey).

Oud-Heverlee Leuven: Romo (46' Thamsatchanan), Jemelka (67' Tshimanga), Ngawa, Hubert (79' Eppiah), De Norre, Vlietinck (67' Vlietinck), Tamari, Asante (46' Writers), Sowah, Mercier and Henry.
