Goodbye Zlatan...
Zlatan ... ... ...
I think both CR & Zlatan deserve to be in the World Cup !!!
We might never see him again in another World Cup.
Sad day for me.
Now 8 teams of second placed teams from group round will play for 4 spots remaining. Which will get the spot?

The 8 teams are (Last FIFA ranking - UEFA zone):
Pot 1:
Portugal (8)
Greece (9)
Croatia (11)
Ukraine (13)
Pot 2:
France (14)
Sweden (15)
Romania (19)
Iceland (26)

My pick for the 4 qualifiers:

Portugal
Ukraine
France
Greece

What is your pick?


Iceland would be cool to see in brazil. in my opinion their football is way better than the likes of australia or japan
+3
portugal vs france will make it hard
+1
Yes everyone support Iceland, screw everyone else lol
+1
for some 'commercial' reason IMO Portugal would never be paired with France

more like;

Portugal v Iceland
Ukraine v France
Greece v Sweden
Croatia v Romania
Imo, Portugal, France , Croatia and Sweden.
swedem, france , greece and croatia will go to the WC.

Wouldve been nice to see the likes of france and portugal face each other, but it was never going to happen was it !?
Guys did someone know Bob bradley number or email , or location in cairo ? i want met him
pelase contact me on my comment wall if someone know

A note of concern for Germany. I am a huge fan of Germany, but am worried about their defensive weaknesses. Tournament after tournament (WC and Euro) this remains the same concern for many years.

In the current qualifying rounds they allowed the most goals of 1st round qualifiers and more goals than many 2nd round contestants. Furthermore, 7 of the 10 goals came from Sweden. I reject the opinions of some who claim Germany did not take the second Sweden game seriously. They are professional and after loosing a 4-0 lead in the first round they had something to prove. Unfortunately, they only demonstrated the same defensive flaws.

I remain concerned because at the WC all the teams will be at the high quality, at least, that Sweden is. If they can pick Germany apart so easily there are serious concerns.

Well, I will be rooting for them any ways. I think if there are not significant improvements in the defense they will drop out in the semi-finals.
lol yeah, if Germany does not improve the defense it is just the semis. I like that spirit.
Good thing they always improve the defense for the tournaments.
"Tuniermannschaft" comes to mind.
So what does that mean for the result?!!!

You guys are good in beating Argentina. I like that:)

Switzerland pot 1...hopp schwiz!
I see!
Whatd u mean Switzerland pot 1?
They're not seeded at the world cup.
wait and see 6th dec
They are ranked 14th with well over 100 points difference to spot 7 (8 is Brazil).
I am curious to why you believe they are in pot 1.

Ah I read theoreticaly they could still move up.
anything else MuellersEleven...
Wow how did they climb up for 150 points? You must admit that is very rare.
okay ribery is absurd.
+1
no offense to San Marino fan(if there's any in here). I know its their right to play but what was their purpose in every qualifying campaign?

to give every team they faces a free 3pts and 2-digits goal against em? XD XD
I understand what you're saying, but I want them to play. They go out there every game knowing that they're going to get slaughtered. A great achievement for them is scoring a goal. They play for their flag and I give them respect for that. Andorra, the Faroes, Liechenstein etc... don't stand a chance, but go out there for every match and play... they're literally amateurs and it looks brutal, but how can you not respect that?
+7
Imagine being a San Marino player... travel and go to the nicest countries. play at the nicest stadiums.. play against worlds best players.
Im pretty sure they don't care. if San Marino offered me to play i would sign right up.

+4
Whenever someone begins with " No offence..", you should always brace yourself for something offensive or silly.

And to add to what Chanman and Tree2 said, some talented players might get noticed and picked within international games. What kind of question is that really?
There have been a few internationals out of San Marino to play in Italy for sure.


i know the most notable one is Andy Selva who played for various clubs in Serie B i believe and is San Marino's top scorer.
Now checking there squad as recently as there last qualifier i realize now most of there players play in Italy....

all of them but one however (Andy Selva) play in the lower tiers ranging from second to even 3rd and 4th divisions.
my bad.
It's actually a very valid topic in my opinion. I remember Tahiti in the confederations and all though it might have been awesome for them to participate, it gave players top scorer awards and skewed the whole tournament. Honestly it's ridiculous to even include such teams in the running as they will never ever make it.

I can also see how it's part of the beautiful game to have some underdogs do some good s**t like Greece winning the euros. You never know in futbol and sometimes magical things can happen.

The way I see it though, it's not effecting the game in an immense way and there are far more positives to come out of it as stated by previous posts than negatives.
+1
The other 3 countries you've mentioned are far more competitive and only lose by a few goals usually, sometimes only 1. In fact, Liechtenstein even picked up 2 pts by drawing a couple of games. The Faroes also drew 1 match.

Having said that. I like the suggestion I've heard of having a separate tournament for those teams with only the winner of it participating in the main qualifying.
+1
so by some of u guys answer its for "just playing" sake?

nice, whichever country got paired up with San Marino shouldn't be bothered to watch bcoz it would be a massacre by their team and a confirmed 6-pointer

Ukraine was the latest country to reap those rewards just now :)
Noir, What's your problem with San Marino? Crushed Romantics?
no problem i'm just stating the facts
I was kidding:)
I would love to suit up for San Marino and get to play the best players in the world getting slaughtered every game. That would be amazing.
Gonna be an intense last day in England and Greece's respective groups
Goal of the week definitely by Hansson from Faroe Islands. Stunner! :) Vote for him
He's Russian as his owner, this Chelsea sup.
