World Cup 2018


emoticon

Various qualifyings are ending this week and South America was exciting to the end last night, with the last games deciding several WC participants.
Reigning continental champion Chile failed to qualify, while Argentina barely avoided the disaster.

Back when the groups were decided there was hype on Finland: we got as easy opponents as we could hope, this would be our big chance to finally once make it to World Cup!
Yeah right.
It has been just horrible, Finland for first time ever fell beyond 100th place in FIFA ranking during the qualifying.
Meanwhile Iceland won our group and became county with smallest population to ever play in World Cup.

Scotland and Wales barely didn't make it, Northern Ireland continues qualifying - would be funny if they'll face Ireland for place in WC...

Inter-confederation play-offs will be Honduras-Australia and Peru-New Zealand, winners to WC.

From North and Central America, Panama makes it's WC debut.
USA failed to qualify first time since 1986.
