Yep, but there was actually a contact. Take a close look from 0:27 and look at Olić's left foot. Olić stepped on Altintop, but his extortion of a penalty was rather funny and unfair, cause he made one step after, then dived.

Turkey lost their patience in 2nd half, a lot of brutal fouls, and they lost Turan and Emre for 2nd leg.

Funny how crowd shouted to Hiding to leave just after 1st goal, and after whole stadium turn back on their national team.

Too bad for Estonia with 4-0 lose. 2nd leg is 15., so, Montenegro have little chances, but Bosnia have big opportunity in Portugal. They are much stronger now then 2 years before.

Bosnian "Dragons" are in full strength! Safet Sušić still didn't tell what exactly team lineup will be, but only player which they can't take into is Salihović. Papac have high temperature, but apparently will play. Others are ready, and let's hope motivated enough to beat Portugal. They have quality, now just to show it. And last time they played better in Lisabon then at home!

Go Dragons! :blueball:

Bosnia play significantly better away than at home because of the fact that a playing style with counter attacking football suits the team a whole lot better. We lose a pro free kicker with Salihovic but Misimovic has been hitting them well recently. It's definitely the match to watch this evening because it will be intense.

Scumbag Portugal, goes to the playoffs only to **** them up (H) We just have to leave it all to the very last, or we wouldn't be Portuguese!

Haha, so true (H)

It seems we also play significantly better in an actual football field, rather than some piece of land more suitable for growing potatoes..

Seriously how come for instance this season Vitória de Setúbal's field was rejected by the UEFA committee for European competitions and that one in Bosnia (which objectively is in worse conditions) is okay? I mean, why the double standards?

Anyway, glad we're through and this time in a convincing manner.

Starting XI
Pot 1: Spain, Holland, Ukraine, Poland
Pot 2: Germany, England, Italy, Russia
Pot 3: Croatia, Portugal, Greece, Sweden
Pot 4: Ireland, France, Czech Republic, Denmark


These are the pots for the December 2nd draw. The hosts showing up in the first pot ensures that there is going to be a tough group or two.

I would love Spain to draw England, Croatia, and France, not because they're easy, but because they'd be great match ups. We've beaten the other big names in the past two tournaments. Plus, England vs France is always classic.

Haha, funny ****. Few years ago, if we'd draw Ireland 1-1 away, it'd be a national holiday-esque day - now even the goalscorer didn't give a **** about his long range shot.

Good luck Ireland, you deserve the spot, though 5-1 on aggregate is a bit too harsh for us. Hope to see O'Shea becoming the star of the tournament :D

Oh, s***, we all expected more from Bosina. 6-2 is too high result. Bosnia looked really bad first 45, not enough determination, Portugal press them very hard... But on 2-1 and 3-2 it was intense. Congrats Portugal, great performance.

Spain
Germany
Croatia
France

Oh, that would be... F***ed up! :33vff3o:

All 14 qualifiers are the top 14 seeds in the overall UEFA NT coefficients. Ukraine is 15th with 28,029 pts. Poland is 28th with only 23,806. :(

Whatever the draws will be, every group is gonna be very interesting. All top teams with great individuals. Its almost harder to win Euro then WC.

And that's very interested. 14 top teams plus Poland and Ukraine who will be boosted by home advantage. Remember how Austria and Switzerland were though in 2008.
