Yeah, the matchup of Ronaldo v Zlatan came to life in this game. Crazy.

Some player named Gusev better stay away from Ukraine. He scored the (own) goal that will likely send France to the WC at Ukraine's expense

The only problem is that the team is so dependent on him. Heaven forbid he gets injured...

Khacheridi took two yellow cards for Ukraine in 3 minutes, so might be correct to blame him as well.

Everything went as expected. Croatia, Greece, France and Portugal to Brazil.

edit: BTW, this was the 4th time for Ukraine in the Playoffs, and they've lost every single one. They also have one Euro Cup playoff loss. Some kind of world record.

Looks like Iceland is a lost case France needs one more goal, Sweden needs two! I don't see Sweden scoring two goals with the way they've played so far though. I hate to say it but they don't really deserve to go to the WC based on these PO games, Portugal is the better team.

I'm rotating the Netherlands - Colombia game with the Sweden-Portugal game (the latter started 15 minutes later). Colombia is one nasty team, wtf. I hope this isn't their usual play. First one of their players blatantly stomps on Lens' shins, to which Lens (stupidly) retaliates with a push and gets sent off while the Colombian player gets nothing. Then they injure one of our only A-team players (Van der Vaart) and our only remaining striker Siem de Jong (Van Persie, Huntelaar and Kuijt are all injured). So now we're playing with 10 players and literally almost half of them were playing in the Dutch second league until this year. It's a miracle it's still 0-0 at HT, probably won't be for long though. It's a shame this game turned out this way, it could have been so nice
if I do recall correctly the dutch were by far the dirtiest team in the last world cup. I seem to recall a certain karate chop to the chest pretty well in the final.

after watching that I'm sure you have nothing to complain about.

So, nothing unexpected happened at the end?

every team that was favourite to classified in this playoffs, did

Now Mexico and Uruguay have to confirm this trend (they will) and no surprises for WC2014
