The last week or so has had an abundance of games on for football fans to watch, all of which were qualifiers for the World Cup 2018, set to take place in Russia next year.
Despite their poor performances (dear me it they were painful to watch at times!) England finished top of their group and are now guaranteed a spot in the tournament. I’m not sure quite how long they will last against some of the big boys, but they need to sharpen the squad up a bit to have any real chance.
Poland also topped their group and will go through. However Scotland, despite giving it a great go and playing full of passion, failed to make it through. It’s a shame as it would have been great to see Scotland progress (it’s been a while since they have) but we’ll have to wait till next time now.
Wales are also gone after failing to beat Ireland on Monday and now Ireland still have a chance of qualifying. Who knows whether or not they’ll make it. We’ll find out soon enough. Either way it’s bound to be an interesting World Cup…
