I also still believe Germany will win the group, but imagine if they came in third, that would be shocking. They will cruise through the next 3 games and will likely figure their issues out.

I think they will, no offense to Ireland and I still feel sorry for the their fans because of that WC qualifiers fiasco with France, but Germany will likely come back. Remember that right now, Netherlands, Belgium, and Portugal are also third in their groups. Maybe these qualifiers won't be that much useless after all.

No offense taken by anybody Irish, we know in reality we are third best and a one all draw is an exceptional result.

I loved when O'Shea said after the game he does not score enough goals to practice celebrations

Did anyone watch the Serbia-Albania game? From what I heard, there was a drone with a flag of "Greater Albania" flying over the field and a Serbian player tore it down, after which a huge brawl ensued between players, officials and fans and the game had to be abandoned.

Yes, unfortunately. Football have shown good examples of putting political differences aside for the love of the game, but the involved in this incident could not manage to do that. I hope UEFA employs really severe punishments on them.

I saw the highlights of the "game". I think the announcer said the flag had a depiction of Albania and Kosovo together...assumed to bring Albanians into one country and out of Serbia.

I'm not sure UEFA should be casting that stone in their own glass house. UEFA was "smart" enough to keep Ukraine and Russia apart in group play, but not Serbia and Albania???
