What on earth has been happening in the world of international football?

The international break has brought a rest from Riyad Mahrez being touted as the next Messi, Chris Kamara forgetting what a goal is and Dejan Lovren accidentally kicking the corner flag instead of the ball.  The international break has been absolutely crazy! So crazy, in fact, that you’re reading this to try and make sense of it all! So, I best get started… bale Wales have had a brilliant campaign. Sorry, I’d better start again. bale Gareth Bale has had a brilliant campaign. That’s more like it. He secured a vital win against Belgium a few months ago, meaning he needed just two wins to qualify. He got the first after he scored a bullet header late in the match against Cyprus, but could only draw 0-0 against Israel. However, even though he didn’t beat Israel, 1 point from two games will secure their place in the Euros in France. lafferty Northern Ireland set themselves up for a historic first major tournament since 1986 if only they could beat Hungary in Belfast on Monday. 1-0 down, it seemed that all was lost, but then Kyle Lafferty stabbed home to secure a point, meaning that one win would see them win a place in the Euros. rooney Wayne Rooney equalled Bobby Charlton’s record of 49 goals against San Marino, where an own goal, Ross Barkely, Harry Kane and two Theo Walcott goals gave England a 6-0 win over the minnows. England play Switzerland tonight, so if he scores the big 50 tonight then don’t blame me for being out of date! It’s amazing that the fact that England secured Euro qualification against San Marino went completely under the radar due to the captain’s exploits! walters Ireland secured a vital win over Georgia thanks to Jon Walters that keeps them in the hunt for an automatic qualification place. However, they still have to play Germany and Poland which will be a test. Scotland’s 3-2 defeat to the world champions all but ended their hopes of automatic qualification but they are the favourites to secure a play off place ahead of the Irish due to their tricky fixtures ahead. Iceland Review The following teams have also secured qualification: Iceland Czech Republic Here is who I think will qualify for the Euros: Iceland, Czech Republic, Wales, Belgium, Spain, Ukraine, Germany, Poland, England, Switzerland, Northern Ireland, Romania, Austria, Sweden, Italy, Croatia, Portugal, Denmark, Norway, Netherlands, Russia, Scotland, Slovenia.
