    Until Pukki proves himself in the Prem he is not even on the same level as the legendary Glen Murray...

    Pukki is just the new Shefki Kuqi.

    Slovakia with a convincing win over Azerbaijan. This team is more than half made up of zlina graduates. The back line which is our strength is entirely produced by zlina academy. One of the best emerging academies in Central Europe that’s for sure. The Ajax of Slovakia.

    Italy beat 10-man Armenia 3:1 in Yerevan, it was tied 1:1 late but Italy eventually took advantage of the extra man with two late goals. Armenia scored first but had a player sent off shortly before halftime. Italy pretty much in cruise control of this group but 2nd place is up for grabs, Finland-Greece is a big match in whats pretty much a must win for Greece. Finland control their destiny for 2nd place but have tough fixtures ahead (still play Italy on Sunday and still have to go to Bosnia later in the year)

    Other key games today:
    - Rep of Ireland vs. Switzerland: Ireland early group leaders but both teams behind them have games in hand, however if Ireland win they will be in good shape to finish in the top 2.
    - Romania vs. Spain: Spain should progress easily in their group but will be a tough game for them against a side which will probably park the bus

    Watching this game at Faroe Islands makes me depressed in so many ways.

    It's Faroe Islands. Let's see what he can do against Norway. Or in La Liga.

    With that said, Berg wouldn't have scored.

    I mean, even Lindelöf scores. Nothing more to see here. Going over to Romania - Spain. Still 0-0.

    Ya, Faroe Islands is a guaranteed 3 pts for 95% of the teams in UEFA.

    They have a record of 13-13-113 in Euro and World Cup qualifying before today’s game. Probably only San Marino and Gibraltar are easier fixtures.

    No real surprising results today but that was expected looking at the fixtures

    Group D
    Gibraltar - Denmark 0:6
    Rep of Ireland - Switzerland 1:1

    Rep of Ireland remain top of the group, coming from behind to draw Switzerland but their lead is only three points on Denmark who have a game in hand (Swiss are six points back but two games in hand too). Ireland still have to go to Georgia and Switzerland while later in the campaign

    Group F
    Faroe Islands - Sweden 0:4
    Norway - Malta 2:0
    Romania - Spain 1:2

    All the favorites won, Spain remain perfect while Sweden, Norway and Romania are all three points of each other halfway through. Romania and Spain are playing the group minnows on Sunday while Sweden host Norway in a big match

    Group G
    Israel - Macedonia 1:1

    Game was pushed back to Thursday for religious reasons, not a good result for either team. Israel remain in 2nd place but could fall to 4th by Saturday. This group looks like Poland will cruise easily and once again be seeded in the final draw :laugh:

    Group J
    Armenia - Italy 1:3
    Bosnia-Herzegovina - Liechtenstein 5:0
    Finland - Greece 1:0

    Massive win for Finland who remain in 2nd place, only three points behind Italy but more importantly 5 points above BiH. However Finland plays Italy next and they still go to BiH so still not totally clear but in good shape. Greece and Armenia practically out

    As long as Bosnia takes three points at home against Finland they have a good chance of being second already next month.

    That last 35 minutes of Finland - Greece reminded me how annoying the sport of football (soccer) is.

    Finland scores a goal on a penalty, which could just as easily have not been a penalty. After that it’s full on turtle defense, and when the greek defense was wide open Finland didn’t even try to create offense.

    As they approached full time players started falling down all the time, just running down the clock. Then you have the completely unnecessary substitutions with a few minutes left.

    My team won, and there’s still a bitter taste in my mouth.

    Netherlands should be able to control the game on the midfield. De Jong is way better than everyone else on Germanys central midfield.

    What a brilliant idea it was to never play and get rid of Gnabry.

    Gnabry... I blame Wenger and Gazidis that we couldn't keep him.

    I still remember that game against Swansea. You could see that he was a superstar in the making.
