Bosnia-Herzegowina minutes away from the first WC qualification. Hope they can hold on because that means Greece have to play playoff games.

yep Bosnia in. Greece for playoffs.

Looks like Romania will get 2nd over Turkey in their group, while Iceland's group is v.close at half time with them and Slovenia both drawing.

We beat Croatia, not that it means anything. If only we had started the group with a proper manager.

most likely seedings as follow:

Seeded: Portugal, Greece, Croatia and Ukraine.
Unseeded: France, Iceland, Romania, Sweden

Why they even bother with seeding...


Hot balls oracle prediction:
France - Ukraine
Portugal - Romania
Greece - Iceland
Croatia - Sweden

FIFA scam has been obvious to us Americans for so long. Shite teams like Switzerland, Bosnia, England just pile up the points by beating utter shite.

Watch how Switzerland may crack the top ten now after beating amateurish sides.

Ecuador beats Uruguay and they receive less points than Switzerland beating their euro shite opponents. lol! 

Switzerland have NOTHING on teams like Honduras, in fact I would put CA$H on Honduras beating overrated shite like the Swiss. TFS!

hopefully France, Romania, Croatia, Portugal - think they'd be most interesting teams in the tournament.

Iceland would make a nice story, so I wouldn't mind them making it. Sweden is a tough draw for Portugal & quite a hard one to call.

Sweden is like the opposite of Greece. Tall, blond, rich and always bad luck in draws.

Good games though

Nice draw, and with Sweden away and Hysen in such a form...I quite fancy them over Portugal.

I thought the seeded teams were allowed to play the 2nd leg at home..what is the point of being seeded  in the playoffs then?

Guess the only point is so that the Fifas rankings has a meaning and the higher ranked four teams can't draw each other. It all gets more funny if the higher ranked teams arent always better (like in France' case) rabbit  FIFA and their ridiculous rankings...


On the one hand I want the best and most exciting teams at the WC. On the other hand, I would love if the bigger guns struggle to get there. Schadenfreude at its best. So, go Sweden.

Oh happy days - two of the biggest c**ts in football playing against each other in the play-offs.

Football quiz: Cristiano Ronaldo or Zlatan Ibrahimovic?

Zlatan is very good, but also a c**t. Ale

I'd prefer him over Ronaldo in my team though, that's for sure.
