Bosnia currently losing 2-0 to Slovakia isn't good for us though.

Id take that Glen Kamara for our midfield. Very solid and good technically. Always impresses me when I see him play

Can't really look into our chances with a playoff until the September round of games probably.

Far to many moving pieces, need to wait until the groups start to take shape. 1 result either way throws those percentages off

If we do not finish in the top 2 in our group.    

The best ranked League D winner will most likely get a league A playoff spot.  Hence only 7 potential spots available.  

There are scenarios where we might get a league B playoff but these are unlikely.
 
We can only afford two lower ranked sides qualifying.

Appreciate there are other scenarios but most likely

We can only afford at most 2 of the following

1)     Turkey to qualify ahead of Wales/Croatia

2)     Sweden to qualify ahead of Belgium/Austria

3)     Romania or Kosovo to qualify ahead of Israel/Switzerland

4)     Albania to qualify ahead of Czech/Poland

5)     Georgia to qualify ahead of Spain/Scotland/Norway

6)     Montenegro or Bulgaria to qualify ahead of Hungary/Serbia

7)     Northern Ireland to qualify ahead of Denmark/Finland/Slovenia

8)   Slovakia to qualify ahead of Portugal/Bosnia/Iceland

Those are the dodgy ones, I think you're looking at least 2 of these happening, and then the other 2 will be close.
