Think it's seeded based on FIFA rankings and NI bottled their chance at being seeded last night?

Bottled? Losing to the world champions isn't bottling it.

I hope both teams make it through. Was fun last Euros with all the home nations and Ireland. Italy are definitely the team they'd want to avoid. They'd deal with the set pieces easily and should have far too much quality on the ball. Croatia should also have too much qualify for both of them.

It would be better if Switzerland get in the play offs rather than Portugal. Them or Denmark would be the best opponents.

Brunt put it in his own net against Norway in a game they needed to win to have any chance of gaining a high enough ranking to be seeded.

Well done RoI.
I've nothing against the Welsh tbh, but I've had my fill of hearing about how well they've been doing as of late and so was half rooting for them to lose.

Australia and Syria into extra time of their World Cup playoff. Can Syria really qualify?

Well, they'll still have another playoff to get through if they manage to beat Australia first.

Happy Australia got past Syria. I've always liked them at the Wc finals. Hope they make it past the last hurdle.

And it's crazy that we could have a World Cup without Argentina, Italy and Netherlands.
