I think I did, only because I was watching it in a bar with a load of Scots, all of them wearing Iceland shirts. Then again, I was hammered and passed out soon thereafter.

Actually Wales have been a bit like England. Loads of possession, more corners, more shots, but no quality in the final third. Even now they're on 70% possession.

Reckon england will be the only home nations team that are in Russia.

So do I. Other than Greece I really cannot see the 2 Irish sides beating anyone over 2 legs unless they face eachother.

That was for Seamus Coleman. Ireland deserved the win no doubt.

Well they scored a goal and their strategy ultimately worked, though it wasn't pretty to watch.

Congratulations to Iceland. Smallest country population wise ever to qualify for the WC.

Revenge will be sweet.

Good luck to Ireland but McLean is an utter thug and got away with a horrible barge in the back on Joe Allen before Ireland scored and that for me was the game changer.

He is a grade A cock.

Going to have to hold my hand up and say did not realise that draw was seeded! In that case, yes, would have thought so.

Shame it appears to put Slovakia out of the play-off frame. Due to a load of work colleagues, I would have wanted them over either Wales or Ireland. 

What about Greece? They`ve only got 16 points with one to play.

Edit. Just seen they`re playing Gibraltar tomorrow.

Delighted in this micky competition that Wales have failed yet again. Nothing against our current or past Welsh players but they gave it too  much large when they did ok in Euros -, at England's expense. 

As for the Scots they are just a joke on the international scene as is their Premier. 

Reminds me of when Yeovil chairman gave it large over SL in the one year they were League 1 when we were also League 2

Looks like Slovakia are 9th already having played all their games, but I have no idea if Sweden have results to potentially be discarded..

The system is overly complex. Results against the 6th placed team in each group do not count towards the qualification for the playoffs. Minus the results against 6th placed teams and Greece have a better points tally than Slovakia. 

Edit: as per OTIK's post above. Sweden, Portugal and Greece all play tomorrow. Sweden and Portugal play fixtures that count towards the table above, Greece are playing 6th placed Gibraltar so their result will not affect the table.

OTIK - your table is correct, Sweden do not have any results to be discarded.

Further edit: Slovakia can still qualify. In the unlikely event that Greece fail to beat Gibraltar AND Bosnia win in Estonia, Bosnia would finish second, but they would finish bottom of the 2nd place playoffs table and Slovakia would make the playoffs. Very unlikely though.

Despite being 25% Welsh I was always only to happy to have a laugh at the welshies until earlier this year.

 

When on holiday our 6 month old baby was rushed into Cardiff hospital with suspected meningitis. The level of care is something had never experienced before in England, so after this really cannot help but have a massive soft spot for them.
