On Saturday 7 October 2017, Luxembourg succumbed to a 8-0 thrashing away to Sweden in a FIFA World Cup qualifying group A match played in Soln.

After last month's heroics when the Red Lions picked up four points by beating Belarus and drawing with France, they became unstuck against the Swedes whose goals came from Granqvist (2 penalties), Berg (4), Mikael Lustig (1) and Ola Toivonen (1).

Luxembourg's next and last match in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers is against Bulgaria at the Stade Josy Barthel on Tuesday 10 October 2017 at 20:45.
