If Switzerland beat Ireland, Switzerland will advance whether France wins or not.

Ireland HAVE TO beat Switzerland and hope France draw or lose to Cyprus to go through.

Dat is a serious group right dey.  De 2nd place team have no chance fuh a playoff.  Too many draws happen in dat group.

De Group I also watchin is Denmark and Turkey.  Wit Ukraine done qualify....if Turkey win, nutting Denmark could do.  Denmark have to win and hope Turkey lorse or draw.

Ah tinkin Sweden might be in some problems too.

a french win gives them a play-off spot at least!

play-off spots are for all second place teams

the two best second place teams of all the nine groups get an automatic berth (dats why england are in)

once Ireland win..they guaranteed of making the playoff.
if France lose or draw they could be out of the running for even the playoff spot.
Israel out..which i think is a good thing security wise...only if France lose they have a chance of the playoffs.
Czech Republic have to win or else Romania progressing.
Denmark might make it cause Albania will be hard to beat at home by Turkey.
Russia has to beat Slovakia to get a playoff spot.
Bosnia has to beat Serbia..Spain has to maul San Marino in order to top the group if the next 2 teams draw.
Sweden unfortunatley heading to the play offs..not sure if they will make it as one the best group runners-up.

A lot of good sides going to potentially miss after gettign paired in the play offs.
Romania, Czech Rep, Turkey, Denmark, Russia, Ireland, Norway, Spain, Serbia, Bosnia and Sweden could all be possibble play-off teams.

I would really hate to see Spain and Czech Rep meet up.

The F365 Guide To Wednesday Night
Tuesday October 11 2005
By Philip Cornwall



Two-thirds of the qualifiers are known now, but there's still plenty of World Cup qualifying possibilities for Philip Cornwall to pick through. What price Denmark meeting Turkey on neutral ground for a play-off spot?

It is all, suddenly, a lot simpler - and not just for England, whose game with Poland may affect seeding but not qualification. There are 24 teams guaranteed
to be in Germany. Africa's qualifying campaign is over and anyone trying to calculate what happens next has a much easier time. In North America and South America, only play-off spots are still undecided.

Three automatic European qualifying places will be settled on Wednesday. But the only place to start is with the Asian play-off for a play-off.

ASIA
Bahrain are favourites now, after drawing 1-1 in the first leg in Uzbekistan on Saturday. But that game was a restaging of last month's match.

FIFA ordered a replay after a mistake in applying the rules that penalised Uzbekistan. A penalty was converted, but an Uzbek player encroached; rather than ordering a retake, as the laws of the game prescribe, the Japanese referee gave a free-kick to Bahrain. Yet what was a 1-0 defeat for Bahrain has now become a 1-1 draw, after a botched bid to return to Uzbekistan their wrongly lost advantage.


CONCACAF
The winners of the Uzbekistan-Bahrain tie play the fourth-placed side in North America for a trip to Germany. After Costa Rica beat an experimental USA side on Saturday, that will be Trinidad & Tobago or Guatemala.

T 'n' T are at home to Mexico and have a two-point lead; win and they are through. Guatemala host the newly qualified Costa Rica. But Guatemala have a better head-to-head record: if they win and Trinidad draw, the central American side advance.


CONMEBOL
While we're on that side of the Atlantic, the South American side to play Australia for a space will be Uruguay, Colombia or Chile.

The latter two drew on Saturday and are one point behind Uruguay, so if the 1930 and 1950 world champions beat Argentina at home they will qualify.

If Colombia and Chile, away to Paraguay and home to Ecuador respectively, both win and Uruguay don't, then Colombia's vastly superior goal difference (plus seven versus minus four) will be decisive.

What if Uruguay lose and one or other, or both, of Chile and Colombua draw?

The results of the head-to-head meetings are:

Uruguay 2 Chile 1; Chile 1 Uruguay 1; Chile 0 Colombia 0; Colombia 1 Chile 1; Colombia 5 Uruguay 0; Uruguay 3 Colombia 2.

In two-way ties, Uruguay beat Chile on points and Colombia beat Uruguay on goal difference in their matches, 7-3 on aggregate. In a three way tie, Uruguay (seven points) pip Colombia (five points) and Chile (three).


UEFA GROUP ONE
OK... This has been won by Holland, praise be.

The Czech Republic, flying for so long, must beat Finland away or be eliminated. They are a point behind Romania and have a worse head-to-head record.

If the Czech Republic win and Sweden lose at home to Iceland, then the Czechs could be best runners-up. But they won't be.

They have dropped nine points so far, Sweden (in group eight) six.

Sweden's goal difference is plus 24. The Czech's overall figure is plus 20, but they must discard their results against the seventh team in their group.

If Andorra are bottom, that reduces the Czech goal difference to plus nine; if it's Armenia last, the Czechs are on plus 14. Andorra are home to Armenia and need a draw to finish ahead of them; the game finishes before the Czechs kick off in Helsinki, so Milan Baros and co will no roughly what their improbable target is.


UEFA GROUP TWO
Ukraine have won this group.

Turkey lead Denmark by a point and Greece by two. Turkey's goal difference is plus 13, Denmark's plus 11, Greece's plus five.

Turkey visit Albania; win and they are in the play-offs.

Denmark qualify for the play-offs if they win in Kazakhstan and Turkey don't win.

Greece play Georgia at home. They need to win, have Turkey lose (the head-to-head is level but the goal difference so much worse) and Denmark fail to win.

What if Greece slip up, Denmark draw and Turkey lose, leaving the latter pair on 20 points?

First would be goal difference as the head-to-heads are level thanks to two draws. If that's even, goals scored - which is currently level.

If Denmark draw 0-0 and Turkey lose 2-0, they will be level in every particular - and will have to play off on a neutral ground. Same if it's 1-1 for Denmark, 3-1 defeat for Turkey and so on. This could run and run.


UEFA GROUP THREE
Portugal won this.

Slovakia are level on points with Russia, drew away with them and have a better goal difference.

The two sides meet in Bratislava; Russia must win away or Slovakia are in the play-offs.


UEFA GROUP FOUR
Israel have played all their games and have 18 points. Switzerland and France have 17 points, Ireland 16, and those three have a game left.

Switzerland's goal difference is plus 11;France's plus eight. If these two finish level, then it comes down to goal difference as the head-to-head is level.

France play in Cyprus. Win and they have a play-off at least.

Switzerland play in Dublin. The Irish must win or they are out. If they do win, they win the group if France fail to win; otherwise they are in the play-offs.

And this is where the uber-nerdery comes in.If Switzerland win they take the group, unless France win by at least five more goals, or win 9-5 to Switzerland's 1-0. Or 10-6 to 2-1 etcetera. At which point it comes down to a play-off on neutral ground.


UEFA GROUP FIVE
This was won by Italy. Norway, with a better head-to-head record against Slovenia, are in the play-offs.


UEFA GROUP SIX
Poland lead England by two points. Both sides have qualified, one as group winners, one as one of the two best runners-up.

The two sides meet at Old Trafford: If England win they take the group; if not, Poland do. As you may have read...


UEFA GROUP SEVEN
Serbia & Montenegro have 19 points, Spain 17, Bosnia & Herzegovina 16.

Spain visit San Marino and even Graham Taylor won away to them. No one sane could be bothered to work out the permutations that follow if they drop points.

Serbia are home to Bosnia.

If Serbia win they top the group.

If Serbia draw they come second behind Spain.

If Boania win they come second behind Spain, having acquired a better head-to-head record against Serbia (they drew 0-0 at home).


UEFA GROUP EIGHT
Croatia lead Sweden by two points.

If Croatia avoid defeat in Finland, they win the group, as they beat Sweden home and away.

But if Sweden avoid defeat at home to Iceland or avoid a mathematical disaster (see UEFA Group One) they will qualify as a best runners-up.


this was a good summary...ah like how they call we "T nT'  ;D
