Diogo Jota made it three goals in two games on Tuesday as he bagged the equaliser against Luxembourg.

A brace at the weekend against Serbia wasn't enough for the £41million-man as Portugal slipped to a 2-2 draw after second-half goals from Aleksandar Mitrovic and Filip Kostic.

The 98th-ranked nation took a surprising lead over the 2016 European Champions after half an hour as Dynamo Kyiv's Gerson Rodrigues made it two goals in as many games.

Rodrigues fired home the only goal as Luxembourg pulled off a massive scalp beating the Republic of Ireland.

To add to the impressive rich vein of form, it was yet another header for the 23-year-old. 

Similar to the draw in Belgrade, it was a Premier League combination that brought the goal.

This time, it was his former-Wolves teammate Pedro Neto. The winger cut back onto his right foot and found the Liverpool man who ghosted into the six-yard box before nodding into the top corner. 

It proved to be the last action of the half for Portugal as the two sides went in at half-time level.

Portugal knew that a win to keep the pressure on the Serbs, who top Group A thanks to Fulham's Mitrovic in the early kick-off.

The 26-year-old's double ensured the three-points as his goal nine minutes from time restored the Serbian lead after Ermin Makhmudov restored parity from the spot.

Diogo Jota continues to show Portugal's 'stars' - they who won't be named - how to do it. 

If he manages to make it through the rest of the international break unscathed, he will be in line to play against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

He grabbed his first Liverpool goal against the Gunners in the corresponding 3-1 win at Anfield.
