Jesus, no.

The incessant “football is coming home” last summer was nauseating.

Yeah it's annoying for a team with such a poor record. One World Cup win (cheated) and two semifinals.

Never been in a Euro final.

Northern Ireland took the lead! And then they didnt.

A Gnabry hatty will do that.

Saw that earlier, wish I could give it a million thanks

Good for bale, he was so good today too, that cross to Ramsey on the first goal was pinpoint

Bale, ramsey, and daniel james is a real good attacking trio, 2 of them have health issues often but if those 3 are healthy Wales can beat a ton of teams next summer

I was trying to figure it out yesterday, even looking at the wikipedia's and it's so convoluted

Firstly with the nations league stuff, adding in all the nations hosting are given some type of favoring as well

Would love if we can get a ROI v NI final in group b

Yeah there were 2 teams allocated to each of the 6 groups. If both teams qualified then there would be a draw to determine who is the home team for that match.

Group A: Italy
Group B: Russia, Denmark, Belguim
Group C: Netherland, Ukraine
Group D: England
Group E: Spain
Group F: Germany

Ukraine is Pot 1 and cannot go into Russias group so the must join Holland making Belgium join Russia.

You could have a group of Italy, France, Portugal, Wales.

Wasn't there a mouth frothing reaction in this thread, over a similar match; a la former Yugoslav states?

So over the top. Surely, high security though.

Couldn't decide which thread to put this one in, but maybe some of us do have a quality that would qualify us to play for Antonio Conte?

They made the playoff draw yesterday. Both Irelands must play on the road. If they both win, they will meet in Belfast.

pretty happy with that. Decent group and no Baku for Austria, really difficult group for the Germans. Good.
