Hope so. Come on Northern Ireland as I have a real soft spot for what they've done in recent times.

As for Wales, not jumping around like uncontrollable children celebrating now like you did when you watched England get knocked out are you.. :lol:

Would rather Wales have gone to the tournament, Bale is one of the better players in the world so he would add a spark to the tournament. Where as Ireland are literally the most boring team in the world, even at international level and this is coming from an Englishman who has watched some pretty bad football from my own country in recent years.

Someone needs to explain to me how Ashley Williams is a Premiership defender.
We used to laugh at Titus Bramble but I'm not seeing any difference

Watch his reaction to being disposed. Same routine every week -

Stands there as if surprised - thinks, 5h1t, better put a challenge in, damn, it's a goal....

terrible terrible defender...

The Prem is littered with poor defending, its what makes it so entertaining and what makes the likes of Kane look world class.

After Kane's goal v Slovakia that's another winner coming from a side conceding possession via a poor throw out from the keeper. Last nights was bonkers.

Chuffed for the Irish, always good to see them do well (both parts of Ireland)

There are some. shall we say average footballers on show last night, but Jesus, Mary & Joseph, they leave everything on the pitch, do enjoy watching that, and fair play to them. Let's hope we see them all at the WC finals.

The Scots and Welsh celebrate most when inevitably we get knocked out. Sod 'em. Andy Murray in an Argie shirt says it all. Regarding the playoffs not sure the Irelands can meet as it's seeded, top four v bottom four of the eight! May be wrong! :D

I'm Welsh, and I am indeed disappointed, mainly because Wales drew too many games at the start of the qualifiers, but it is what it is. Good luck to the home nations. Hopefully Ireland (NI and RoI) can get through now, and I would genuinely like to see England do something good in the finals next summer.

Does this mean the Welsh are going to support England again, like they used to in the 90s? I always found that very curious, along with the number of them that support the red scouse.

I live in Cardiff and there are plenty here who support Man Utd,Arsenal etc etc.They seem to forget their English hatred when it comes to their club team.

Looking at the distraught Welsh players last night, all I could remember was that video showing them all screaming and cheering when Iceland beat England, so tough bow locks to them.

It actually says nothing at all as it never happened.

i thought it was funny at the time and I am English.
Not sure if this is an apology at all -

I'm not sure what Wales were doing last night. Why did he straight swap Robson Kanu for Vokes? Why not have them both on the pitch? They needed two goals!

Fair play to the Irish though, they defended like lions and hit them with the sucker punch when they got the chance.
