Can't see them not scoring.

Sweden probably should have had two penalties.
Sooner penalties be denied than given too lightly, mind.

Wouldn't mind if Italy don't make it
The more big nations that fail, the better.
Makes our probable exit in Russia easier to swallow.

Seems strange that Iceland will be there and Holland and Italy may be out.

I donít envy Italyís draw: Spain in the group, Sweden in the play offs (would worry if England got that). However, itís been a while since theyíve been one of the worlds best sides, and Iím not sure the WC misses out on much except the name if theyíre not there.

No one has a right to be there

Sweden robbed already. 2 blatant hand balls you will ever see.

I genuinely wonder if the ref has a) been paid off or b) been threatened.

At the very least the ref is a homer with zero bottle.

I take it all back, the assault on Italy's Darmian in the box was incredible. Never been a more stonewall penalty in history! Possibly the worst refereeing performance of all time.

So true dockworker, was relentless loud booing throughout Sweden's anthem.

Sweden absolutely Karanka'd it, outstanding.

Wonder if Zlatan will come back for one last ride into the sunset?

Have to say Sweden were the better team over 2 legs, and the WC would have been poorer had Italy qualified at their expense.

I do feel a bit for Buffon though; I know most international careers end with a failure (very few end with the lifting of whatever trophy), but this seems particularly ignominious for an all time great.

Shows how jammy the England team have been in recent qualifiers. I can't remember us having a bad draw for a lot of years.

Our group was the hardest to qualify from by way of rankings.

"Our group was the hardest to qualify from by way of rankings."

technically true.

looking at the teams in pot 2 at the time of the draw:
Slovakia 15
Italy 17
France 22

Teams in pot 3:
Scotland 29
Sweden 33
Albania 36

Maybe we overestimate them based on history, but France, Italy and Sweden hadn't been pulling up trees at the time.

Or maybe the rankings are bunkum; they're certainly biased in favour of Europe/South America, but maybe their means of calculation is weak too.

Weren't Mexico at Number One a few years back.

Despite our higher ranking I couldn't see us doing well against the three lower ranked teams of France, Italy and Sweden.

Mexico's highest ever position is 4th

Norway were ranked 2nd for almost 2 years in the 90s
