the pk decision for bulgaria is ABSURD. Mafia-type decision.

Albania is down 1-0 against Turkey despite they have played good in those 25mins. Very naive goal conceded though.

Optimistic about Ireland's chance of qualifying, have an easy start anyway. Gibraltar away tomorrow and then Georgia at home on Tuesday.

If we don't pick up 6 points in those 2 games I'm off to support Northern Ireland.

Denmark and Switzerland won't be easy but I'm confident we can finish above one of them and qualify. Mick McCarthy is back as our manager, got us to the 2002 World Cup from a qualifying group that had Portugal and Netherlands in it, so he's got the credentials. Ex-Interista Robbie Keane is our new Assistant Manager, interesting to see how he does in his first coaching role.

Can't wait to see how Mancini manages to screw this up.

He came back in national team together with coach Şenol Güneş, though he is also playing for Başakşehir and they are very likely to become champions this season.

Crazy that he's still playing in the national team, one of my favourite Inter players when I was a teenager.

He was substituted before a few mins due to an injury, but damn, the guy is 38 and still useful for his teams.

The group is hilariously easy even for this Squadra Azzurra. I can't imagine how Mancini could screw it up. Even Ventura would have probably qualified from this group.

Albania lost, again. Turkey didn't even put any real effort tonight lol. Two very naive goals, especially the first one, however in the first half we played good and we looked like a proper team. The same cannot be said for the second half though, an absolute horror performance.

Panucci has to go. He doesn't know what he is doing anymore, had players warming up all second half and didn't bring them in the game lol.

Too many changes in the starting eleven, every game though. We need a new coach because Panucci is inept.

Ireland drawing 0-0 at half time away to Gibraltar, worst 45 mins of football I've seen in years. As people who regularly watch Inter, like me, you know that's seriously bad.

At least we're hoofing it 1% less.

I'm telling you McGoldrick is a good player.

He is for sure, has a bit of intelligence about him on the ball.

Ireland getting 3 points, is about the only positive from that game. Hopefully the performance improves on Tuesday against Georgia.

Really average game by Italy so far. Looks like Mancini's all attack style does not really work that well without Chiesa and Insigne.

That said, Kean looks like a good talent. Immobile is so shite these days, plus I don't think this style of football suits him. Bring on The Quag I say.

Quagliarella could easily replace Luca Toni in the world cup 2006, amazing player this year...
