A win and three points, but a ordinary performance by England again. Thay played like a good Pub team, Estonia did well enough but weren't really stretched.

Germany lost to Poland! :? Have they been taking coaching from the England team, what the heck happened in Poland? :?

And Russia only played 1-1 against Moldova, and unlike Moldova only scored from the penalty point. Excellent! :thumbsup:
Yesterday I learned that the melody of Lichtensteins national anthem is "God save the queen".

We're playing England on the 15th. We might surprise them. We probably won't, but we might!

I didn't know that, so they are stuck with the same dirge as England.

:lol:

I'm now officially supporting Iceland, cos Portugal can down right go #%&! itself.
Still 0-0 against Denmark so far, things may improve.

I think Slovenia may get a point or more, whilst England are "reorganising".

:smile:

That was hilarious in the Serbia - Albania game. Some Albanian separatists flew in a quadcopter with some propaganda flag on it, a Serbian player managed to grab it and pull it down. Then the albanian players got involved and it almost turned into a 22 person fist fight with a few thousand head Serbian mob chanting stuff like "Kill the Shqiptar!" (derogatory term for Albanians).

Slovenian text, but has a bunch of photos: http://www.24ur.com/sport/nogomet/tekma-med-srbijo-in-albanijo-prekinjena.html

And they wonder why they aren't allowed into the EU. :rolleyes:

A win, but that was not good.
Well, Iceland did get a good win against the Netherlands.

Wow, that looks a stupid mess. Match Abandoned after 41'!

UEFA are not going to like that. Very bad for commercial/TV revenues.
I sense bans of crowds being imposed or maybe even teams.

:shakeshead:

Serbs and similar ethnicities in the area have often seen bans from soccer matches, because of how they behave.

A good result for England with a slightly better performance than previous games. The players still seem only able to give about 60% as good as they do for their clubs. Strange, but has been like that for a long time.

A good away point for Wales in Belgium, plus San Marino got their first point in decades in a major qualifying. The away win by the Faroes was great too, but cost Coach Ranieri his job.

Well done to all the smaller countries who did well this round. :cool:

Group A should be France's. And I can't imagine France playing outside Paris, so there's a 90% chance you'll be watching "les bleues".
Nope. 100% chance of not seeing france in that match :) I only applied for the matches without France because the chances of getting tickets for those were even slimmer than for the rest ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UEFA_Euro_2016#Group_A (my tickets are for Match 14 - A2 vs A4)

France plays in the Stade de France (just outside of Paris), Marseille and Lille. For the group phase at least. Can?t imagine them not advancing.

It's been a rather surprising qualification phase, with a number of teams under-performing, and others over-performing. Iceland and Austria have qualified for the first ever. I attribute it to the "boost effect" of the new qualifying system (2 assured entries/group, all the 3rd place teams with a chance of making it). In four year's time that psychological boost probably will have faded.
