    lol at the USA, everything that had to happen for them to go out happened, some questionable refereeing in the Costa Rica - Panama game and incredibly shit goalkeeping from Tim Howard. Also how Argentina are struggling is a mystery, such firepower and they struggle to qualify.

    George Weah becomes President of Liberia. Can't wait for the day Wayne Rooney becomes Prime Minister.

    Italy get knocked out to! fucking hell this world cup is going to be dry. Its all opened up nicely for an England win lol.

    Its just the luck of the draw, there were a few piss poor weak qualifying groups yet Italy get matched up with Spain. Sad to see Buffon go out like this. Italy were playing the best football at the Euros 2 years ago, they shouldn't be getting knocked out.

    Unfortunately Italy are their own worst enemy, you can't play chicken shit football and get away with it anymore, especially when you no longer have a Baggio, Del Piero or Totti to bail you out. Having said that, Italy do ALWAYS get fucked over with the draws, not just with the national team but also at club level. Why did they decide to change the qualifying process so 1 team per group only qualifies.

    When wasn’t it the top team only progresses and the second place had a playoff?

    Your right, its always been that way, I was thinking of the Euro qualifying that they changed for the last Euro. However how are Romania, Wales, England & Croatia seeded ahead of the likes of France & Italy. I mean, France made the last Euro final.

    EDIT: Nevermind, just realised UEFA did the seeding before the Euro 2016 tournament.

    Lol Ireland got thumped 5-1 at home by Denmark; for all the bullshit about how good the ‘home nations’ are only one is going to Russia and that’s because of the easiest qualifying draw possible.

    Adios World Cup. This time last year we were top of our qualifying group. A few poor draws against Georgia and Austria where we were set up to draw, despite having bet the likes of Germany and Italy only a while previously, is what put is in the play off positions. Denmark were the far better team today, a few shocking individual mistakes and substitutions made at the wrong time.

    We have been poor at home the last few months so I thought we should have went for it more in Denmark as they really didn't offer much there.

    The tournament wont be the same without the Irish fans. At least Northern Ireland didn't make it through..

    Jedinak with the hattrick, always remember him being a solid player when he was playing in Turkey.

    Surprised the Yanks didn't qualify, surely its more difficult not to qualify. Atleast we won't be hearing the U...S...A chants for 90 minutes.

    Sad for Ireland but can't really say anything, the Danes were better.

    France look legit contenders but they just seem like the team that will crack under pressure.

    Iv never seen England play so negatively before, the past 2 friendlies both 0-0 draws. Incredibly boring games against Germany and Brazil but I actually see this as a good chance for England. Parking the bus as we have seen before wins tournaments. England are going to be incredibly tough to beat just like Greece in 2004 and Portugal in 2016. Well atleast this is what Im hearing from the media.

    I think the first goal off the free kick has been credited as an own goal. Now we just need a coach lol is Aussie Guus still available? If the sheep fuckers somehow beat Peru there will be more Asian teams at Russia than South American.

    It shows how far England has fallen off that they’re celebrating 0-0 draws back to back at Wembley. That Iceland game must still burn badly.

    Looks like Guus works for Chelsea now. He might consider if you ask nicely.

    Too bad about Ireland. Not too much to look forward to now.
