    NHC World cup play offs

    N Ireland v Switzerland (Thurs and Sun)
    Croatia v Greece (Thurs and Sun)
    Sweden v Italy (Fri and Mon)
    Denmark v Rep Ireland (Sat and Tues)

    and for good measure the intercontinental playoffs

    Honduras v Australia (Fri and Wed)
    NZ v Peru (Fri and Wed)

    Some pretty interesting match ups there. My own guessometer says Switzerland, Croatia, going for a bit of a shock with Sweden over Italy and I think Ireland.
    Australia and Peru for the other two spots.

    Peru is actually a 3am GMT kickoff Saturday morning. Hopefully they'll keep it tight in Wellington and then do the job back at home. Be great to see them at another big tournament. Wonder if BT sport or sky are showing it?

    One of the most beautiful, iconic kits in World football.

    Would be great to see them get through for that alone (I'm too young to have been scarred by 1978).

    One of the worst penalty decisions I've ever seen. Not just Scottish refs that are wallopers.

    Awful decision and he couldnt possibly see it. UEFA getting their favourites through no doubt.

    I remember about ten years ago when a qualification campaign started, UEFA said the play-offs would be drawn randomly.

    After all the matches were played there was a sudden change of heart and seedlings were to be introduced. **** all to do with France and Portugal unexpectedly finishing in the play off positions of course. 😆

    Makes you wonder, especially with sponsorship and money becoming more influential in the game as time passes.

    Indeed. In fact, a World Cup without Buffon isnít right. Thatíll take some getting used to.

    I also heard somewhere that the Italian TV deal for world cup rights hasn't been signed yet. It's very much in FIFAs financial interest for Italy to get through.

    They've qualified for every major tournament since 1958. Incredible really.

    The Michael O'Neill speculation is bound to start up again if/when they get knocked out.

    Im dipping my toes in the unfamiliar waters of African football tonight, Senegal SouthAfrica live on BT sport now, Senegal qualify if they win. Mane playing, Senegal just scored 1-0 after 10 mins.

    As said above, a WC without Italy just isn't right.

    It's bad enough that Holland have missed out.
