2nd half is soon on. Slovakiaa qualifies if both games Wales/Ire and Ukr/Cro end in a draw. Slovakia has a +5  GD and Croatia a + 2 GD. Wales has a +2 as well but have scored 7 Goals (minues the ones vs last placed Moldova) and Croatia has scored 6. Honestly Croatia is another top team who we ll be the ultimate underdog against so Id rather a Wales and Slovakia came in instead. Rep of Ireland even better but I doubt it ll happen.

I want Wales to win as they would be a seeded team and I would love if Ukraine beat Croatia.. but honestly Italy does not look good right now, they dropped points against Macedonia and are struggling against Alabama..

Seeded:

Switzerland/Portugal

Italy

Croatia

Denmark/Sweden

Unseeded

Sweden/Denmark

Republic of Ireland

Northern Ireland

Greece

 

Croatia Denmark/Sweden really look appealing considering the other 2.

Denmark currently Drew but Sweden tomorrow with a win over Netherlands I expect them to go better. Northern Ireland just lost twice in a row so they ll drop a lot. October rankings are the one that are accounted (that's why the draw is 17 October to wait for the rankings of October which have a fix date at 16).

Can the Netherlands go to the playoff with a simple win over Sweden, or do they have to score in bunches to get in?

They need to win them 8-0 dude. The only other possible scenario on that Group is France losing points to Belarus and Sweden winning, giving us an extra powerhouse as an opponent.

Read that Sweden is confirmed unseeded. So Denmark will probably be in the play offs as seeded if France dont end up 2nd.

Knowing our luck from the playoffs we re gonna get Denmark.

Friendly reminder that in 2014 we could be facing Sweden and France but we got Romania instead.

ffs denmark would be AMAZING to get. 

basically denmark >> switzerland > italy > croatia for me.

we owe them something from that game in oaka for the 1998 wc qualification where we needed the win in if i'm not mistaken we hit the post twice in the last min..

as i said fifa would like to have italy around so they'll get nothern ireland, while i predict switzerland will get ireland and croatia-sweden
