    Croatia blew it vs Finland at home and play Ukraine for a possible group win on the line. Going to be an incredible finish.

    I don't like or dislike the Netherlands team, but it's kind of like college football where it's more fun for everyone if the blue bloods are playing meaningful games. Do wish they made it.

    Rough day for #Chelsea and #Manchester United fans. N'Golo Kante left France's game with a hamstring injury, the injury has already ruled him out for Tuesday, but not sure it is known beyond that. Marouane Fellaini also came off with an injury and Belgium manager thinks there is possible ligament damage.

    Wales-Ireland is actually tomorrow, nice. Tuesday has enough as it is and Switzerland-Portugal will be huge.

    Switzerland and Portugal play in Lisbon on Tuesday which should be an awesome game. The Swiss have 27 points and Portugal have 24, a Portugal victory gives them auto promotion based off of goal differential.

    Sweden and Netherlands play and the Dutch need a 12 goal win to advance to the playoff

    In group D, Serbia has 18 points, Wales 17 and Ireland 16. Wales and Ireland play in Cardiff while Serbia has Georgia in Belgrade. Should be quite an interesting winner takes all battle with Wales and Ireland for the Playoff spot assuming Serbia takes care of Georgia.

    Group I has a few possibilities, but Iceland can attain auto qualification with win vs Kosovo who only have 1 point thru 9 games. Croatia and Ukraine are tied with 17 points, but Croatia have a 3 goal lead in goal differential. They face off in Kiev with Croatia needing a draw or a win to advance and Ukraine a win. Kosovo could throw a fun wrench into the party, but that's unlikely as they are on the road and also suck ass.

    Edit: 2nd place teams with dropping the results of the 6th place team could potentially make some things fucky, but unlikely.

    As long as my math isn't failing me again, a draw for Croatia may not be enough. E.g. if Wales and Serbia both win Croatia would be the lowest of the second place teams and not advance. No idea what happens to them if they draw and Serbia and Ireland win or Wales wins and Serbia loses or draws.

    Looking at this further and if Serbia win, Wales draws 0-0 and Croatia draws 1-1, Wales and Croatia will be even on points, goal difference and goals scored, meaning the last playoff place would be awarded based on fair play points (or if that's tied by drawing lots). So it's not too far fetched that a playoff place could essentially be awarded by the ref in one game giving a cheap yellow card in injury time.
