Gordon's subs were mad. I felt like he lost it halfway through and the players were to make it up as they went along. Now Slovakia's out as well by the way. So that group was doomed.

USA and Chile are out which is quite disappointing.
I wish the sport continued to grow in the U.S.

Yeah they really were.
I feel sorry for Strachan leaving. He has done a great job especially this year when you look at our form and results. I didn't want to see him go but I suppose you can compare that loyalty to his loyalty to some players he played.

Glad Argentina did it, and with Messi on fire the last and decisive match. But we have a lot to work on if we want to last long in Russia

Who has qualified so far?

After a perfect qualification round by Poland, I'd be deliriously happy to see them win.

No chance for Poland.
I think Germany is going to make it back-to-back.
A good outside bet would be Belgium, but their coach is too meh to make it happen.

Nah, they will be fed eith home made Pierogi to gain some extra energy for the next month and boom, they have a chance to win the whole thing!

As a German being, I wouldn't mind seeing our team to win again but I'd be happy for other teams (preferably an outsider) as well.

As a fan of Italy team, I don't think so. They're not looking confident and might get the boot.
I oh so wish at least Australia or New Zealand qualifies via the playoffs.

Yeah, Italy is struggling this time.

And I hope to see Australia and New Zealand as well!

You're welcome!

It was not as interesting as Eurovision but I like to follow the qualification rounds quite closely and it was nice to look the other qualifiers up ;) I am surprised Panama made it (and the US didn't).
