The Armenians are 4 up now. Magnificent news from Bratislava. I think Wales might have given them a similarly spanking in the the Euro 2008 qualifiers.

The key match now is Slovakia v Russia. We'll presume Ireland beat Andorra that night.

If Russia win or draw - a point at home to Armenia will secure a play off berth

If Slovakia beat Russia - two Ireland victories would put them top of the group and therefore through automatically.

How does qualification work? 16 teams qualify, 8 groups top 8, all the 2nds is 8 aswell why is there play offs? Is there best runners up?

Host nations take 2 of the spots, so there must be some class of playoff type thing.

Armenia back in the running now and the last game between them and Ireland will have a lot hanging on it.

Cheers tacadoir and AZ, was thinking there was a best placed runner up, Jees armenia ireland will be a humdinger if the slovaks beat russia,

The Slovakia V Russia game kicks off at 20.15 and our game against Andorra kicks off at 21.30 hope to watch both.

Is anyone seriously suggesting slovakia will beat russia when russia only need a draw against them. Slovakia are a s*** team.

Funny things happen in those qualifiers Indiana. Especially when Slovakia are at home. Russia are no great shakes either.

Slovakia beat them in Moscow and deservedly so. Russia are not the same side on their travels and the Eastern European countries tend to raise their game against them. Slovaks obviously had a bit of a nightmare tonight but they are a much better side than that. To be honest we probably made the Russians look better than they actually are today.

Slovakia beat them in Russia so its not inconceivable that they could provide a shock at home, particularly given that their playoff hopes depend on it.
