    I was honestly hoping for this since it was announced that the tournament would be in Russia.

    I was hoping Russia would beat the US and then get blamed for hacking into their computers to spy on their tactics

    Of course that's not better. It's way worse. The whole point of sports is that it can cause great emotions, feelings of joy and of sadness. The Irish take away all that by assuming they'll lose and just focus on getting hammered. They kill all that makes football worthwhile.

    He's a businessman. What's to say he wouldn't make the right choice when in office? He's not kept abreast of military intelligence in the Middle East because he doesn't have access to it and perhaps doesn't have the time to be. But that's not to say he wouldn't make an astute decision when he has all the facts in front of him.

    I like Wales attitude "As long as we beat the English", thought Ireland would have something similar, but to not have any competitive edge at all is idiotic, I agree

    It still creates joy though, no?

    Of course it does. It's about getting people around watching the games, big crowds at the pub, for some it's travelling to the tournament and enjoying the 'craic'. Yes the team(s) might be limited but it's far better than not being part of it.

    In the same way a night out with friends does. I wouldn't even mind if they just had fun, but it's sickening how they are glorified because of it. It's just a loser team with loser fans. Why should that be considered an achievement?

    16 for RL and 15 for CR in the end. Ronaldo wasted a 1on1 in his game as well.



    Not sure how they calculated it but seems like Ronaldo goals were not decisive at all?

    congrats, well deserved for Lewa as he was scoring more consistently throughout the qualifiers

    but i dont get this list either. Ronaldo for example has scored the 1st 2 goals for Portugal in their 3-0 win over Latvia, and their 1st goal in the 2-0 win vs Andorra after coming off the bench. he should have atleast 6 pts won by himself

    No, if you delete his goals in these matches, they'd have won both games 1:0, so in both of your examples his goals aren't count on the list above.

    Yann Sommer though

    well, thats a BS criteria. they didnt look like they will score even against Andorra before he came on. if you score 2 goals at 0-0 then you have won the match, regardless how many the team scores after

    btw, where can i find all time stats for EURO qualifiers and WC qualifiers (Europe)? also WC qualifiers for all zones combined if possible
