Think so, REgs.......


That's Scotland out. :D Ireland might get through ahead of Slovakia and behind Russia. England have an easy group for a change and Wales are in this group.

Group winners go straight through, and the best 2nd place. The rest of the second placed teams go into a seeded playoff for the remaining spots.

So 14 qualify, and the two host nations automatically through.

BJB Italys group looks weak Spains group isn't easy, the Czech's are good and Scotland play with a ton of heart and hard work.
I agree, but when you look at the teams in teh group... they got teh serbs and slovenia who both made the WC, while non of Spains group did....

but then again... :confused:

All the group draws have been posted now. Seems some groups had trouble negotiating where and when they will play.

Note for this qualification: Games will be played on Tuesday and Friday's mostly, with a one or two Saturday games..... Seems some of the home leagues didn't like the Wednesday/Saturday games.....

I will be in Croatia in October and was hoping to see Greece or Israel play in Croatia, but instead i get powerhouse Malta!! :rolleyes:

England: 4-0 great game, look like a different team compared to the WC. Lot's of younger guys playing, Dawson looks like he might have a bad injury. Rooney was different class with 4 assists, Defoe with 3 goals and also took a knock.

Solid away start by the Irish.......at least in terms of earning 3 points. :D Armenia wasn't going to be an easy trip but getting the 3 points is a great start.

Great to see France lose AGAIN......and Portugal.....it is hard not to laugh. 4 - 4 against Cyprus? :confused: That's an embarrassing result at home. Italy ALMOST shite the bed against Estonia and Scotland played to a predictable 0 - 0 draw at Lithuania. The Welsh lost a tough one to Montenegro.

C'mon Mickey it's Bulgaria, not a Stoichov led goal machine from '94.
