Anyway that was a good night for us, I'd say our chances have increased after that!

Turkey losing to Croatia key. Wales winning a big positive. 

Romania winning and Israel losing would have been par for the course. Israel will have that gap closed by the next round of games they play the minnows. 

Results for us haven’t gone bad so far in the main.

Would worry about turkey catching wales , Wales look a shadow of the team we ran in to a few years back .

The playoff positions have been updated on wiki at the end of match each day


As it stands teams up as far as 25th (Slovenia) are in the playoffs.

All we'd need is the Dutch to finish 2nd and we'd be handed their place as the 26th team in the above standings.

But a hell of a lot of games to go.

They weren't very good value for the 1-1 though

Of course us actually coming second ahead of Holland wouldn't be bad either! But I know what you meant....

Didn’t realise that when a NL group winner qualifies their playoff spot goes to Estonia :( path A looking like a softer path but you can never rule out Italy from making mess of things.
It really is going to go to the wire.

Up to 49% chance of a play off spot again after last night's completion of the GW2 fixtures.

Based off their current predictions, we would be away to Norway with the winner playing the winner of Iceland v Estonia.

Any idea if the final is home/away/neutral?

Only a matter of time before a team can lose all their groups games,  lose their play off and still end up at the Euros.

Looking at the next rounds of fixtures in June, these are the absolutely key ones to look out for:

16 Jun Belarus vs Israel - Away win critical to Israel's chances of topping Romania/Kosovo
16 Jun Kosovo vs Romania - Home win or a draw - Dont want Romania winning this one
17 Jun Montenegro vs Hungary - Away win will leave Montenegro with a mountain to climb
17 Jun Iceland vs Slovakia - Home win key to keeping Slovakia behind Iceland/Bosnia
19 Jun Turkey vs Wales - Massive, if Wales get any kind of result here, it will hurt Turkey
19 Jun Switzerland vs Romania - Need Romania beaten here
20 Jun Austria vs Sweden - Another massive one, a home win leaves Sweden in trouble, an away win and Sweden are favourites to qualify ahead of Austria
