Portugal beat Andorra 3-0 in their World Cup qualifying match, with Luis Figo bagging a double either side of a strike from Bordeaux's Pauleta.

It was the perfect warm up for winger Figo ahead of Real Madrid's match against Barcelona on Saturday, when his Real side will look to increase their lead at the top of the Primera Liga to seven points.

Finland, England's next opponents in World Cup qualifying, beat Luxembourg 1-0 thanks to a goal from Mikael Forssell, the Chelsea striker currently on loan at Crystal Palace.

Angelos Basinas' late penalty and two goals from debut striker Angelos Charisteos salvaged a 3-3 draw for Greece against Russia in Heraklion.
