      I guess we need this to keep things tidy.

      Just a thread to discuss all the qualifiers from around the the different federations.

      Comprehensive victories for Wales and Scotland.  Northern Ireland get a decent? away draw.  Mighty England edge past Slovakia in the 95th minute.

      On another point.

      This whole international break has deprived us of footie for a fortnight and England have only played one game.  Now fair enough they've got two games in the October break but then another one game in November.

      Why didn't they just break it up into two international breaks with two games in each?

      Watching Italy - Spain.

      Costa must be the luckiest c**t on a football pitch. The amount of sh*t he does that he gets away with is unbelievable. First in the league, now on the international scene. Only just got his first yellow. Should've had another yellow half an hour ago for blatantly slapping Bonucci in the face.

      And here he goes again, kicks away the ball after clearly hearing the whistle and doesn't get a yellow yet again. Has just been taken off by Lopetegui.

      Iniesta never fails to amaze, the easy with which he can run a game is incredible.

      Allen also scored for Wales, they're 1-2 ahead in Austria, that's three goals in three games!

      Here's the goal, quite a beauty!

      England V Malta, my homeland. We will give England a good run for their money but once we concede the first goal, many more will be waiting.

      On Sky, they said 6-0 for England, we will lose 2-0. Small island, big balls ;)

      Great to see Sturridge in that starting lineup.

      Hoping he can show Klopp what he can do!

      Hendo bossing the midfield whilst Wooney does f**k all.

      I'm finding the commentators very innocuous, but my TV has the strange symbol in in the corner.

      There should definitely be different options for commentators mate.  I'd rather listen to the banter in the studio than listen to the usual drivel.

      BBC used to have an option to go to R5L, but it wasn't always synced.

      Alan Greene should be made to commentate on all games IMHO.

      Malta played as we know, defensive and trying our best. We did the same in WW2 under the British guidance. Hogg saved our pride. We were what we are but England were sh*t. Henderson only played like a proper professional but he was given to much space as well.

      Come on Malta :D

      Fair play to Malta on the result.

      How the f**k Rooney and Lingard stayed on the pitch I'll never know. Rooney thinking he's Gerrard or Scholes every 5 minutes is damn right embarrassing, his passing is atrocious. Regarding Lingard, good movement but his use of the ball was sh*te, I saw him waste possession and passes so many times. F**k knows what the pundits saw which made them think he played amazing.

      Probably not the result they were hoping for.  Could be in for a bit of trouble in that group now.
