I think mathematically we can still make it if, from group I:

Israel beat Romania & Andorra
Romania lose to both Israel & Switzerland

and from group J:

Iceland beat Slovakia & Portugal
Slovakia loses to Iceland & Bosnia. 

Realistically it's been over for a while and I reckon we will be officially out tomorrow night.

Iceland also need to beat Slovakia on H2H. They lost the first game 1-2 so will need to win by 2 clear goals tomorrow.

They just need to win by one goal. Equal head to head goes to overall goal difference. Away goals don't apply. If Iceland also win by any margin they finish above Slovakia (provided other results go our way).

Yeah you're right had read it wrong, away goals dont come into it until after overall GD is applied.

Their overall GD are +5 and +6 and going into the last games you'd fancy Slovakia to score more against Bosnia than Iceland against Portugal so tomorrow will be their best chance to better their GD either way.

We also need Bosnia to beat Slovakia so it cannot come down to GD.
