Photos: Liverpool's Markovic clashes with United legend; Matic celebrates wonder-goal

A selection of images from Portugal's clash with Serbia, including players from Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Southampton.

Portugal earned a hard-fought victory against Serbia on Sunday to move to the top of Group I in the Euro 2016 qualifying phase.

The result means Portugal are now two points clear of second-placed Denmark while Serbia remain bottom of the group after their six-point deduction.

Former Chelsea defender Ricardo Carvalho headed his side into the lead only for the Blues’ Nemanja Matic to equalise for Serbia with a brilliant overhead kick.

However, Portugal went back into the lead when Real Madrid defender Fabio Coentrao scored what proved to be the winner.

Along with Chelsea players past and present, the match also saw Manchester United loanee Nani play the entire match along with former Old Trafford favourite Cristiano Ronaldo.

Manchester City’s Aleksandar Kolarov, Liverpool’s Lazar Markovic and Southampton’s Dusan Tadic also added to the Premier League quota.

Nani may have found the net himself were it not for great work from Matic, and it will be interesting to see if the winger returns to United next season to go head-to-head with the defensive midfielder in domestic matters.

Below is a selection of images from the match, including Liverpool, United and Chelsea stars:
