Is anyone else following it? Tomorrow starts the fourth matchday and the race is pretty tight. The top four countries will get a place in the World Cup, while the fifth place will go to playoff with a team from Oceania.

The third matchday was this past saturday and some teams really impressed.

Venezuela had an historic first win as an away team against Colombia, 0-1 final score with a great goal made by Juan Arango. Venezuela was very organized, especially in the second half that was mostly played in their side of the pitch, but the defence and the goalkeeper were very good, the last one making some awesome saves.

Argentina beat Bolivia as a home team 3-0 with goals by Andres D'Alessandro, Hernan Crespo and Pablo Aimar.

Peru impressed getting a tie with the actual world champions, Brasil, 1-1 goals by Rivaldo (pen) and Nolberto Solano

Chile lost their 100% record in Uruguay losing to the home team 2-1. Goals by: Javier Chevanton and Clever Marcelo Romero for Uruguay and Rodrigo Meléndez for Chile

Paraguay won 2-1 against Ecuador, goals by Roque Santa Cruz and José Cardozo for the home side and Edilson Méndez for Ecuador. Paraguay's Coach is the former goalkeeper Jose Luis Chilavert.

Are you going to bet on Venezuela for tomorrow? I really hope they win because they deserve it. I met some players two weeks ago and I told them that Im gonna see them playing in Germany, and they were like "what?". The World Cup is their biggest dream and they know its not gonna be easy at all but they will fight for it

Well we should get at least a draw with Bolivia, I think. We're the home side (which means the stadium should be full of fans!!) and Bolivia hasnt had that great matches.
