Group 9


The smallest group of the nine see the first qualifier in Europe for the World Cup next year in South Africa. Seven wins from seven was enough for Holland to book a ticket to the finals with a game to spare. They now have one game left to possibly experiment a tad which could play a huge part in who takes second place as that one remaining game is against Scotland who currently occupy second place.

With automatic qualification now dead in the water. Scotland and Macedonia will now go head-to-head with the prize a second place finish and a chance to play in the play-off’s. However, Scotland hold the trump card though with Macedonia having played an extra game more than Scotland. Iceland are just three points behind the pair but they’ve also played a game more then Scotland so their qualification dreams have been smashed while Norway would need to win both their remaining two games and hope both Macedonia and Scotland don’t win there’s.

Congratulations to Holland as they were the first official qualifiers from Europe although they did have to contest the smallest group. However, you can only beat what’s put in front of you and they did that in some style. We will give Scotland the nod to sneak into second at the expense of Macedonia and Norway.
