England win 3-0 against a skilful but harmless Belarus team. Some decent performances from most of the midfield and strikers, but David Beckham stands out as definitely the best player to ever have played the game.
Their next match is, ridiculously, a friendly against Brazil in Dubai. I hope every single player pulls out through injury.
Northern Ireland get a good draw in Prague (I'm guessing) against Czech Republic.
Wales thrash mighty Lichtenstein 2-0. I watched some of it on s4c and the commentators seemed very excited. Great free kick by aaron ramsey.
Ireland draw to end qualifying undefeated. quite an achievement.
Some surprise group winner in Serbia Slovakia Switzerland and Denmark mean the play offs will be
France vs Bosnia
Portugal vs Slovenia
Russia vs Greece
Ireland vs Ukraine.
when's that huge bahrain vs new zealand grudge match?
In Harry Redknapp news, he's said he doesn't want any extra security for his return to Fratton Park. He has also hired the footballing equivalent of Johnny Cochrane to get him off any upcoming charges he may face over £10k unpaid tax. He says he's paid £10m tax in the last 10 years. What a hero.
Argentina go through - tell me about it.
