On Tuesday evening at the Stade Josy Barthel in Luxembbourg city, the Red Devils held visitors Bulgaria to a 1-1 draw in their last FIFA World Cup Group A qualifying match.

Having recovered from the week-end's 8-0 drubbing away to Sweden, the Luxembourg national team rediscovered their form which, last month, earned them a home win over Belarus and an away draw against France.

Olivier Thill scored for the home side in the 3rd minute, only for the visitors to draw level half-way through the second half, with a goal from Ivaylo Chochev on 68 minutes.

Luxembourg finishes the group table with 6 points, one more than Belarus with 5 points. France qualifies for the World Cup in Russia next year, and Sweden pips The Netherlands (both on 19 points) for 2nd place, and a place in the play-offs, on goal difference.
