Southampton defender Cédric helped Portugal keep up the pressure on Group B leaders Switzerland in World Cup qualifying, as they won 1-0 away to Hungary.

The Saints right-back played the full game in Budapest, as the European champions prevailed by virtue of André Silva’s goal early in the second half.

Fernando Santos’s team remain very much on the coattails of Switzerland, who won in Latvia this evening, trailing them by three points.

Portugal’s victory ensures they will finish in at least second place in their group, all but guaranteeing a play-off spot as a worst-case scenario.

However, with a trip to Andorra and then a potentially decisive clash at home to Switzerland in their final match next month, they will still have their sights set on topping the standings and securing an automatic spot in the finals, in Russia, next summer.
