Scotland let me down for a ninefold acca on all of the nights games. I also went for correct scores.
I went Montenegro to win 3-0, they won 2-0.
I went right with Germany to win 2-1.
I went Denmark 2-1, it was 4-0.
I got Malta v England spot on at 0-4.
I went Norway 2-1, it was 2-0.
I went Romania 3-0, it was 1-0.
I went Northern Ireland 4-0, it was 3-0.
I went Slovakia 2-0, it was 1-0.

Just noticed this thread and have been posting in "Other Games".

Anyway, looks like Cameroon and Holland won't qualify and not impossible that America and Australia could fuck it up. It would be a nice story if Syria made it through.

I trust Southgate has told Henderson and Livemore to watch Busquets tonight to see how the midfielder in front of the defence should play.  He might be a diving cheat at times but he is very very good in the role.

I hope England play better tonight against Slovakia we really didn't play that well against Malta even though we won the game.

It is often hard to break down teams like that until they tire from all the running without the ball or their heads drop after conceding. 4-0 in Malta looks good compared to Albania 2 Liechtenstein 0 or France 0 Luxembourg 0.

I agree. The days are gone where small countries get hammered 8-0 on a regular basis. I don't think Malta got enough credit to be honest.

The French result is an odd one. I seen bits of their game v the Dutch Thursday and thought they'd got their act together and were going to be a major force once again. Not the case it would seem.

England should easily win tonight if they remove Sterling from the squad and start Rashford. That's all that is required.

Sterling is one very overrated player.
