South Korea and Australia don't look nearly as strong as a couple of years back.

Japan has a good team on paper though. A couple of weak spots, but otherwise a good mix of hard working role players and creative stars. If they get it together that's a very nice squad. I doubt they will though, they don't seem to play to their strengths.

Agreed, and Honduras as well. All of the teams in the hex would have a good chance of advancing out of Asia.

Costa Rica is a better team than Australia and probably around the same level as South Korea.

Sorry.

Guess I have to make a formal sorry letter to y'all. As you all prolly know Ethiopia and Tunisia have not been qualified to the next round due to points deductions but I accidentally had them noted down as qualified. Hope this hasn't affected your life to negatively.

And also wanted to make a check who here is flying in to Belfast to see Northern Ireland vs. Russia. Imma be reporting from outside Windsor Park on this site and my life twitter feed page.

Best wishes and most sincere apology,
Thorstein

14: Australia (1996-1997)
14: Brazil (1997)
14: France (2003-2004)
13: Scotland (1879-1885)
13: Brazil (1960-1962)
12: USA (2013-current)
12: East Germany (1973-1974)
12: West Germany (1979-1980)
12: France (1984-1985)
12: Mexico (1987-1990)

Costa Rica is still salty about the Blizzard game.

Quote:
Still peeved, Costa Rica has turned on the gamesmanship for the return encounter here. The president of the country, Laura Chinchilla, noted the U.S. players would not get any special treatment in customs on arrival and have to stand in line with everyone else, just as the Costa Ricans did during their U.S. visit. The Costa Rican federation gave the U.S. contact info for three different training sites here, but all of them said no to the U.S., which found a practice location on its own at a local dairy factory. And when the U.S. requested game balls from the Costa Ricans for practice sessions, as per the usual protocol, none of the balls showed up. (The U.S. practiced Wednesday with its own Nike balls instead.)

When the U.S. finally did arrive here at the airport on Tuesday night, the Americans were met by a group of middle-finger-waving Costa Ricans (see below) who later tossed a couple of eggs at the U.S. bus. (The closest U.S. player to the eggs was newcomer Aron Jˇhannsson, who presumably never got such a welcome when he was playing for Iceland.) There's also talk here that Costa Rican cab drivers are organizing a traffic jam to make the U.S.'s route to the stadium on Friday as difficult as possible. The usual protocol is for local police to provide visiting teams a police escort to the stadium; we'll see if that takes place or not.

Definitely adds to the rivalry, I'll say that. The Costa Rican players and media have been talking a ton of shit the last few days. The new guys from Europe experiencing their first qualifier looked like rich kids coming to the ghetto for the first time. Welcome to CONCACAF boys.

Classic. Hope we thrash them 6-0 now.

Still can not believe Russia lost to Northern Ireland. At least it should mean Azerbaijan ends up in 5th now

Need Italy to smash Bulgaria as well, and hope Armenia takes care of business in the Czech Republic. A Honduran tie with Mexico would be nice as well.

Best game of today:

Serbia - Croatia

Can see Northern Ireland upset Portugal. Belfast is always a tough place to win and Portugal always struggle in the Qualifiers. Germany and England should easily beat their opponents.

Alenleomessi's lads take on Gareth Bale and co. Have you seen him today in Skopje?

im almost 200kms away from skopje... last time i watched macedonia it was against england back in 2006 i think when we lost 1-0, crouch scored... the good times are long gone... good thing the game is at 7pm otherwise most of the people would have watched the crucial eurobasket game against serbia ( that is at 9pm which means people could watch both )
as for bale yeah most of the people ( macedonia is full of madrid fans ) will go there just to watch him and not our nation which is alreardy out of any contention for the WC...
ill cheer for noveski going two-footed on him.
