The penalty shoot outs of 2006 & 2012 were bad too, we were winning and still blew it
tbf that's a beautiful goal. shame it was wasted on the wrong end

a couple more years of growing pains are in order but i'm very excited for 2020 & 2022. England could do big things.

I feel similar when it's an England qualifier but when it's the tournament proper I am hooked. More emotionally invested when the matches really matter. Thursday night was painful, I don't care how much anyone supports England.
If by some miracle we get there, then I'll probably watch the matches full, but the problem is always that I have to record them, as I'd be feeding Karen or something, and once they're recorded it's hard not to hit that fast-forward button, esp if nothing is happening for long periods. And of course, with the World Cup, you have so many matches to try to watch, again I tend to watch mostly the highlights shows. Nothing worse than anticipating a great match that turns out to be a damp squib, unless it's not bothering with one that looks like it wouldn't be up to much and it turns out to be the game of the tournament!

Over for Scotland. Winning 1-0 just needed to hold on. 2-1 then they equalised but it's not enough. FT 2-2 and Scotland are out of the World Cup.

Northern Ireland should still be OK for a play off place.

Wales vs Ireland tomorrow should be an absolute belter.

Why are you guys gutted? England is through. Quite surprised we beat them. Wales I mean, obviously.Typically, I set the TV to record the highlights, it clashed and missed out the first part of the prog which was (anyone?) the Irish match. Got to see Serbia, Italy, Lichtenstein!
Oh joy!

A Northern Ireland vs Republic would be one hell of a playoff, and it might happen....

I just wanted Wales to go through. I support all the Home Nations (and Ireland when it doesn't inconvenience them). Plus Wales were great last summer and Bale deserves to play in a World Cup.

Ireland going through isn't bad, a shame it was between those two really but I would have preferred Wales.

Wales have a great group of players atm so there'll always be a small part of me that wants them to go through.

It's the tournament as a whole and the neutral supporters who lose when players such as Bale aren't there.

We are facing the very real possibility of Bale, Messi and Ronaldo all missing out. Portugal play tonight against Switzerland and need a win to top the group, if not, then they're in the play offs. They should be OK, but you never know.

Argentina are in big trouble. They are 6th (SIXTH) and their final game is away in Ecuador tomorrow (well tonight technically, 00:30 GMT) - a fixture they haven't won in their last three visits and it's 9,000 feet above sea level. It's not an easy place to go because of acclimatisation and Argentina are badly out of form. It will be interesting.
