    I'm going with worst case scenario for Chile in the other matches, forcing them to get at least one point in Brazil:

    Paraguay over Venezuela
    Uruguay over Bolivia
    Peru v Colombia draw
    Argentina over Ecuador
    Chile draws Brazil

    Brazil 39
    Uruguay 31
    Argentina 28
    Chile 27 +2
    Colombia 27 +2
    Paraguay 27 -3 (Assuming they win by 2)
    Peru 26

    Rooting hard for Ecuador and Colombia, but if Chile loses they need A LOT of help. I'm terrified.

    You have 2 Copas in a row, missing a WC is nothing and can just jerk off to those highlights.

    Chile is probably a quarterfinal team at best for the wc too.

    I never thought I would see a Copa America win let alone two in a row. I'm coming to the realization that the golden generation is almost done and I doubt I'll see another in my lifetime. Even when we had Zamorano and Salas (which are both better strikers than what we've put out there during this run), it was not enough as our defense/midfield was shit. But I really want one more run in a tournament as this team seems to be play much better in a tournament setting (unless we get Brazil, which also adds to my anxiety for Tuesday).

    Wales needs to win then because a draw leaves them behind Slovakia.

    He would likely end up pulling his hammy in the run up to the tournament anyway, as much as I love him as a player.

    Greece are almost certain to be the final team in the playoffs -- they only need to win at home to Gibraltar to clinch the runners-up spot in their group. They have already played all their games for the calculation and have 13 points -- one more than Slovakia -- so just have to secure second spot.

    Even if Greece fail to win, they can only be overtaken by a win for Bosnia and Herzegovina and that would leave them on 11 points, one less than Slovakia, so they cannot now qualify for the World Cup.

    So Slovakia's only hope is this: Greece fail to beat Gibraltar and Bosnia win in Estonia.

    The runners-up in Group A are most likely to be Sweden, who would have to lose by seven goals away Netherlands to miss out on the playoffs, while France would also be through if they dropped into second by failing to win at home to Belarus.

    The full table of second place teams is as follows:

    Portugal 18 (+18)
    Denmark 14 (+7)
    Italy 14 (+3)
    Sweden 13 (+10)
    Northern Ireland 13 (+4)
    Greece 13 (+4)
    Republic of Ireland 13 (+2)
    Slovakia: 12 (+5)
    Croatia: 11 (+2)

    Greece, Portugal, Sweden and Sweden are in action on Tuesday.

    Cahill header wins it for Australia. Syria hit the post in extra time but that's it.
