Slovenia just won against Russia and they are going to the world cup. Ireland in the meantime is leading France 1-0. A night of upsets.

Russia is out :slinkaway Cruel, cruel sport. Can't believe they won't be in South Africa. That's a loss for the quality of the tournament.

Germany managed a draw against Côte d'Ivoire in the last 20 seconds of the game. 2-2 is the final result.

Congrats to Slovenia. Proud little country.

Sorry for the Russians but what is there to say except maybe Slovenia wanted it more. So congratulations to them.

Denmark beat the USA 3-1 in a friendly.
USA up 1-0 at the half. Ten minutes into the 2nd half Denmark led 3-1. Not a good performance by the USA.

Oh no, a wildly discussed goal in France for France. That's not good. If this is it for France, I won't read any newspapers from the isle for the next week.

But it's a shame if France would go through with an evil goal. Even the French think so, they are not happy in the LeMonde livechat.

This would be a heartbreaking result for the Irish. They were soooooo close! :( Glad I am not a betting woman because all the teams I picked to win has lost. :lol:

France is through. I hope that they sort themselves out till South Africa. They got so many top players, but no real game, no team, no power...

Shame for Ireland. They are fighters.

Uruguay vs Costa Rica is tied at 0-0 for now.
Ended in a 1-1 tie. Uruguay advances on a 2-1 aggregate. That last second goal by Jon Bornstein in DC was a disaster for the Ticos. In fact, the entire 2nd half of the hex was a disaster for them. They dropped from a seemingly solid looking 1st place to 4th in 5 games. Then out. Remarkable.

OUCH! Blatant handball by Henry and today he did not deny it but said it was not deliberate. It look deliberate to me. But there is nothing to be done now but for the Irish to hope for better luck next time. Maybe they, the Russians, the Costa Ricans and Bosnians can buy each other a pint or two. LOL I am very happy for Urugray because it would be a shame for them to miss another final of theWC especially since they won twice. I would be routing for them to do well next year.
