    with a 1-1 draw against Bosnia and Herzegovina in a World Cup qualifier on
    Sunday, while Group H leader Belgium crushed Estonia 8-1.Belgium remains perfect
    with 12 points from four games, and has scored 21 goals with only one
    conceded.Dries Mertens scored in each half against Estonia, while Romelu Lukaku
    snatched two late goals to add to the visitors misery.Second-placed Greece
    trails Belgium by two points after being held at home, while Bosnia and
    Herzegovina is a further 3 points behind.Tzavelas scored with a blistering shot
    outside the area in the fifth minute of injury time after Bosnias defense only
    half-cleared a long throw-in by Sokratis Papastathopoulos.Bosnia, which
    dominated most of the game in Piraeus, took the lead in the 33rd minute after
    Miralem Pjanics free-kick bounced off the right post and then goalkeeper Orestis
    Karnezis back before finding the net.The game was stopped for five minutes after
    the goal, with some Bosnian fans lighting and throwing flares -- and broken
    seats -- while some Greek fans chanted anti-Bosnian slogans.Tension had built
    ahead of the game when a group of Greek fans attacked and slightly injured a
    Bosnian, who claimed his attackers were shouting Kosovo is Serbia.On the field,
    Costas Fortounis nearly equalized in the 54th, but goalkeeper Asmir Begovic
    deflected his shot into the right post.Both teams ended the game with 10 men,
    with Kyriakos Papadopoulos getting a red card for striking Edin Dzeko -- in his
    attempts to wrestle the ball away -- while Dzeko got a second yellow card for
    pulling Papadopoulos shorts down in the same 80th-minute incident.In Brussels,
    Estonia found itself 3-0 down in the first 25 minutes through goals by Thomas
    Meunier, Mertens and Eden Hazard. And although the Estonians pulled one back in
    the 29th, through Henri Anier, it was all downhill from there.Yannick Carrasco
    made it 4-1 in the 62nd, Ragnar Klavan gifted the Belgians with an own goal two
    minutes later and Mertens scored his second four minutes after that. Lukaku
    added two more in the 83rd and 88th.

    Collaros, 25, was solid last season, posting a 5-2 record as the starter while
    incumbent Ricky Ray was injured. Collaros also started Torontos 23-20
    regular-season finale loss to Montreal — Ray didnt dress because the Argos had
    already clinched first in the East Division — but was one of three quarterbacks
    to play that day.

    final at AAMI Park, leading early before ultimately falling two points short of

    Green Machine, who came to life in 2016 on the back of an enthralling attacking
    style.Stuart cut a dejected figure after the game but was proud of his teams
    efforts in a season in which few predicted they would finish so close to a
    decider.We sit here after every game win, lose or draw and talk about how much

    points.Stuart said their finals heartache would be the making of their team.Our
    hurt now is the start of a really, really competitive era for the Canberra
    Raiders, he said.This loss will help us achieve success in the near future. We

    well, thats over now.The way we play the game has given rugby league another
    injection of energy and enthusiasm purely through our players. Im so proud of
    the season.Were not going away empty handed. Well get something out of this. ' '
