Romero; Acuna, Otamendi ,Mascherano, Mercado; Biglia, Banega; Papu, Messi, Di Maria; Benedetto

Sampaoli with that extreme hipster choice of playing Benedetto at striker over Icardi, Dybala or Higuain.

If his 30 minutes vs Vzla are anything to judge for Benedetto is smoke and mirrors

I seriously cannot believe how the other 2 games were on the brink of going in our favor until Ecuador and Colombia screwed it up.

While we are happy with the draw there is huge concern now that Colombia will coming at us with all they got. Yes we have the home crowd but as the qualifiers proved that doesn't mean anything

I cannot believe Messi missed that chance in the opening of the 2nd half. All the pundits in Argentina were right. If Messi was wearing his Barca shirt he would have had a brace

Gallese :bow: to think he recovered from his hand injury and this was his first game back in a month. What a display of goalkeeping. Araujo our young defender from Alianza defended like prime Chumpitaz! Messi could not escape the kid!

If we had players with better experience I think we could've won this. Gareca used the same plan as he used vs ecuador, and it worked but we were missing key players like Cueva and Carrillo that would've enjoyed playing a tired Argentina in the 70th minute
And would've gotten a goal or 2

Seriously, we are all euphoric for the draw, but when Alexis scored and Colombia lost, it turned into nervousness. We have to beat Colombia no matter what and depending on other results we either qualify directly or to the playoff.

The last matches will be very dramatic. 2 will fall while the rest move on. Looking at the fixtures, I'm going to say that it'll be Chile and Paraguay will miss out. Brazil will want to end the qualifiers with a win, and Paraguay although they play ar home they Venezuela who are far from a push over team. Paraguay have struggled at home too. I think Argentina will get the draw at Quito and go above chile in GD. We will see. It's going to be a wild night

Also, congrats to all Germany and England fans on qualifying. Hopefully, Peru will see you there too.

The qualifiers are a real mess right now. This is great going into the last matchday

Brazil 38 (+27 GD) (qualified)
Uruguay 28 (+10 GD) (qualified to playoffs at least)
Chile 26
Colombia 26
Peru 25
Argentina 25
Paraguay 24
Ecuador
Bolivia
Venezuela


Last matchday
Brazil - Chile
Ecuador - Argentina
Paraguay - Venezuela
Peru - Colombia
Uruguay - Bolivia

A loss eliminates Argentina. A draw depends, could get them to play offs or eliminated. A win gets them to play offs or direct depending on other games.

Ecuador has been losing everything lately but they have been hard fought games. Argentina scores less than Venezuela, or anyone else for that matter except Bolivia. They have also only got 1 win away from home (Chile). Very real chance that Argentina don't win this.

Europe

Already qualified teams: Germany (with Northern Ireland in course for play-off), England, Spain and Belgium.

With two rounds of matches to go, Group A is still pretty open as five points separating four teams. Can France (17) do a 94? They do have an away date with old nemesis Bulgaria (12) while their nearest rival Sweden (16) also has an away game against struggling Netherlands (13).

In Group B, Switzerland (24) just needs to avoid defeat in their remaining games against Hungary and Portugal (21) (away) to qualify.

Serbia (18) losing to already eliminated Austria has made Group D interesting. However, I expect Serbians to win at home against lowly Georgia and qualify while the Wales (17) vs. Ireland (16) game will decide who might get into the play-off.

Poland (22) must avoid defeat against Montenegro (16) who may still harbor hopes of play-off; because Denmark (19), who hosts Romania, has a better head-to-head record.

Slovakia (15) is expected to win at home against Malta; so it’s the Slovenia (14) vs. Scotland (17) games that holds the key to which teams finished behind England in Group F.

I expect Greece (13) will win their remaining games and finish ahead of Bosnia (14) in Group H, but I don’t think that will be enough to make it to the play-off.

Iceland (19) should beat lowly Kosovo at home and qualify from Group I. Ukraine (17) must beat Croatia (17) at home to make it to the play-off.

What an exhibition ffs :bow: our gd is now +19 Laughing safe to say we are guaranteed at least a play off spot. Hopefully Bulgaria can do us a favour tonight. Need France to draw at least

When will other coaches/players learn not to underestimate/disrespect us before a game

Before the game the Dutch coach said: Sweden won't beat Luxemburg by 8-0, what kind of question is that?

Hate to say it but we just beat Luxemburg 8-0 knobhead

And yet again, Ronaldo comes to the rescue for Portugal. Something a talisman should be doing for their team anyways.

A grace from God and a great run of form. The grace being that Bolivia fielded an ineligible player against Peru, and FIFA awarded the win to Peru (Bolivia had actually won that game 2-0). Funny enough it technically ended the bad losing streak we had playing away, I say funny because the next match Peru played after FIFA awarded the points Peru legitimately won their first away game against Paraguay 4-1. Since then, Peru has only once against Brazil at home. Peru took the opportunity and didn't take it for granted. They've won 14 points out of a possible 21 so far. Plus we should add that Ecuador, Chile and Argentina 3 teams that were early on considered to qualify, have choked badly. Ecuador are eliminated and it's possible both Argentina and Chile are both eliminated too

But all credit should be given to Gareca. Not only are we getting results we are doing so with great football. The Uruguay game was the grand showcase on how amazing our offense is. Defense still needs work however.

the thing is the Russian fans think they are going to war with the English hooligans from the past but the truth is the police and fa have done so much to stop the trouble makers from going to games that most of the England fans now are not out looking for trouble.

When did this evolution of British fans occur? It sure wasn't evident just two years ago in France!

tell me the last time you saw trouble at a England home game or trouble at champions lge games that are played in England. when england fans out number other fans by 100 to 1 and could easy smash the granny out of them you don't see a single bit of trouble. when a few 100 england fans go to france and are out numbered by the Russians you see trouble. it don't take an IQ of 150 to see whats going on.
