Really good first half Peru 1 - 0 NZ, which still leaves the All Whites in the same position ...... They need to score a goal :lol:
Chris Wood has hamstring problem, but is on the bench, so may be risked later if needed.
Peru playing good attacking football and trying to go forward all the time =D> , which is a breathe of fresh air for those of us who fed a diet of back and sideways passes for 90 minutes a game :evil:
Commentator sounds like Sid Waddell ........ "the white shirts are streeeeeming forward jus like a flock a seagulls"

Wishing (if I had a photograph of you) . OK band but a great haircut on the lead singer from memory.

Ex Leeds legend Chris Wood on for second half and nearly turned the game but looks like Peru will prevail. Good news, on the back of Australia and USA's turgid performances, it would make for a poor world cup with a third colony qualifying :D

Finishes 2 - 0 so Peru are the last qualifiers for Russia which means they are in pot 2 (ranked 10 in the world) the same pot as England, Denmark drop into pot 3 and a very dangerous Serbia drop to pot 4.
In theory England's group could be Germany, England, Denmark, Serbia or on the other end of the spectrum it could be Portugal, England, Iran, Australia.

One classic quote from the Sid Waddell soundalike when Peru scored their second goal "He put that away like James Bond in a white tuxedo with a red stripe on it" Not sure what the guy is on, but I wanna try some :confused:

Luckily pan there are only TWO colonies there "the penal one" and Nigeria :-$

Congrats to Nobby Solano Peru's Asst Coach ........ I'm sure it was Nobbies idea to get the New Zealind flight to have a THREE HOUR delay on landing, The team bus driver to get lost and take an extra hour to get to the hotel, and then have an all night firework party outside the hotel ....... sure the NZ players will remember their day in Lima for the rest of their lives :lol:

Didn't know Holland were good at rounders!

Re the WC finals draw. I was reading up on this the other day. I may be wrong but think that only 2 European teams can be drawn in the same group. This being the case, it would be better if England drew a European team from Pot 1 meaning we couldnt get Denmark, Serbia or, God forbid, Iceland.

That would be the FIFA regulations as of today pan !! By the time we get to the draw and depending on how many brown paper parcels have been passed under how many FIFA executives desks (assuming some are still at their desks and are not on the run) we may yet get Russia/Uruguay/Iran/Saudi Arabia in one group and if that means 4 euro teams in another group so be it :-$

PS IF TWATTER is involved the draw may take place at any time within 24 hrs of it's schedule.

Looks like it is Fox that appears to be getting the rough end of the stick from the US's failure to qualify

According to Forbes, the USSF will miss out on the $12.5m (£9.49m) paid by Fifa for reaching Russia 2018. And then there is Fox Sports, who might have felt a little punch-drunk after spending $425m (£322.76m) acquiring World Cup USA TV rights, which included next year's tournament. Business Insider said USA's failure was a "disaster" for the media organisation.

Reminder that the draw from Kremlin Palace Moscova Russia takes place at 22:00 (Udon time) this evening.

The draw will be made by this young lady from Spankys Nana Plaza (or someone looking remarkably like her)

Overall a reasonable draw ....

Group A ... no fixing there then ?? :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o
Group G ... England win 2 loose 1 and slip thru [-o<

SO ...any UM football gurus wish to name NOW who they think will win the 2018 World Cup .. lets have those predictions NO IFs or BUTS just an out right team that will lift the cup come June 15th .

DM is going for ....... BELGIUM .(after seeing their rather easy group fixtures)
Claret n Blue all way thru .. Up the Iron
L2 Season 19/20 Codheads 0 Scunny 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2qrsItFUug

Belgium have no chance DM ...... Martinez has absolutely no experience of a competition like this (keeping players focused for a whole month) [-X [-X

Think that it may go to a "POT 2" team :shock: :yikes:

Spain to win, and I have a hunch that the Argies are going to turn their form round as many of their players will not get another chance so HAVE to perform in Russia
