Euro 2020: Elmas leads Serie A scorers

Several Serie A players were on target in this evening’s Euro 2020 qualifiers, as Eljif Elmas bagged a brace for Macedonia to beat Josip Ilicic’s Slovenia.

Napoli midfielder Elmas is continuing his impressive progress this season with both goals, as North Macedonia secured a 2-1 victory over Slovenia.

It was an all-Serie A affair, because Atalanta star Ilicic got the consolation goal for Slovenia.

Elsewhere, Parma midfielder Juraj Kucka found the net in Slovakia’s 1-1 draw with Wales.

Romelu Lukaku made history by becoming the first player to reach 50 goals for Belgium, his brace taking him up to 51, while Atalanta’s Timothy Castagne also got in on the act as Belgium demolished San Marino 9-0.

Summer Inter signing Valentino Lazaro scored, as Austria fought back to beat Israel 3-1.

Inter-owned Ivan Perisic missed a penalty in Croatia’s 3-0 win over Hungary.

Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt made a serious error that allowed Northern Ireland to take the lead in Rotterdam, but the Netherlands fought back for a late 3-1 success thanks to Memphis Depay’s double and Luuk de Jong.

Milan forward Krzysztof Piatek came on as a substitute in Latvia, but it was Robert Lewandowski who scored all three of Poland’s goals.
