In the first Nations League games tonight, Norway lost points and Kosovo missed their last chance.
In Group 4 of League B, the Norway has a comfortable lead over Serbia (4 points), but could ensure its rise in League A with a victory in Slovenia. And despite a goal from the inevitable Erling Haaland, the Norwegians lost in Ljubljana (2-1), which has two consequences: Serbia can come back to within a point of Norway in the event of a victory tonight…and Sweden are now tied on points with Slovenia at the bottom of the standings.
In League C this time, the Kosovo had to win North Ireland to keep dreaming of qualifying. But a defeat (2-1) mathematically eliminates the small Balkan country from the race for exploits, and automatically qualifies Greece for League B, ensuring it finishes first in group 2.
