    Something tells me Ireland and BiH will play a boring 0-0 draw in Dublin.

    Hungary is definitely going to make sure they qualify in front of their own fans.

    Tomorrow two very interesting games although everything will be shadowed by what happened in France :(

    None of Chelsea's players outside of Fabregas did anything at the International level.

    Same thing again

    Deserved win by Russia over Portugal, though Portugal was not playing their strongest side, youngster Guedes from Benfica made his debut

    Ukraine take the deserved lead, Slovenia twice fail to clear crosses and Handanovic doesn't properly punch the ball to safety, falls to Yarmolenko who does well to get by the Slovenian defenders

    Good pace to Ukraine-Slovenia. Slovenia will have their hands full to get away with a result.

    Slovenia just had two golden chances, Ilicic shoots high unmarked at the top of the box while Novakovic was clean through on goal but a heavy touch took it close to the goalkeeper to collect

    Ukraine lead at halftime but both teams had their chances. Ukraine had them in quantity but I would say Slovenia's two decent chances were better quality. They definitely have a goal in them while Handanovic is looking a bit uncomfortable on corners and crosses which seems to be Ukraine's strategy

    So far this has been by far the most entertaining game of the playoff

    2:0 Ukraine, easy finish for Seleznyov at the far post, poor defending by the Slovenian left back (Jokic)

    Comfortable win for Ukraine, 2:0 over Slovenia, and they are in good shape to qualify for the Euros. Slovenia had two real good chances in the 1st half but the second half they did nothing, Ilicic had a poor game. Ukraine had some chances to score the third but overall they will be content with the result. However they did blow a 2:0 lead for WC 2014 playoffs, but Slovenia is not France

    Seems like an electric atmosphere in Stockholm/Solna.

    Slovenia does not have players to score 3 goals against a team like Ukraine. Besides, if Ukraine scores 1 goal, Slovenia will need to score 4.

    Sweden score on the stroke of halftime just moments after Bendtner missed a good chance. Both sides have had their chances but Sweden have been better so far.

    real good save, at the distance Zlatan went for power but Schmeichel did well to read it and get enough power to parry it away

    Denmark answered your concerns.:D

    Sweden wins 2-1 but Denmark has an away goal.

    Should have been a penalty for Bendtner before the Sweden goal. Not the best performance by the ref.

    And Zlatan should have gotten a yellow!

    60-40 % possession for Denmark, 14 attempts each, 400 something completed passes for Denmark, 200 something for Sweden!

    Still, what a horrible game by Denmark, I dont want Them to qualify, they are ****!
    Last 20 minutes is how the danes should play...

    Lets hope Olsen realises Bendtner, Kvist, Durmisi and Braitwaith should Not play!!! In with Yusuf Poulsen and Hoejbjerg.

    Zlatan really is Sweden, everything goes through him, but imo the rest of team Sweden overperformed which showes a better winners mentality..

    Still think Sweden takes it, and honestly Denmark have no business at the EC, before they get their acts together!

    Denmark just passed the ball around at midfield and their attempts were mostly half-chance headers. Their attackers got dominated by our central defense(not exactly something that happens on a regular basis, mind you), while Zlatan and Berg had a field day with theirs. It was a perfect counterattack game that suits us and the wingers we played with. But that only lasted for 70 minutes and with more quality we could've scored a third goal, Berg is incredibly snakebitten. After that Sweden got too tired and the sub we had to make in the first half hurt because you don't wanna be left with no subs left in the last 20 minutes. Denmark's subs on the other hand made a big difference. In the end, 2-1 is kind of a mediocre score.

    We'll see, stamina might be a real difference maker on Tuesday with only two days rest. I expect a similar game but Denmark will be out hard in the first half this time.

    Odegaard starting for Norway

    Hungary have Juhasz coming back from suspension but the manager decides to keep the same back 4 as in the first leg. Szalai and Nemeth have been dropped and the front two is changed
