The Final Day of World Cup Qualifying. Can you take the suspense?

Lars Baron

HERE IT IS. THE MOMENT OF TRUTH.

THERE IS NO AWAY GOALS RULE TO SAVE YOU.

WIN ON AGGREGATE OR GO HOME IN SHAME TO BE BELITTLED BY YOUR COUNTRYMEN'S SNOTTY CHILDREN!!

Mario Mandzukic and Croatia need a win over Iceland having drawn the first leg 0-0

Franck Ribery and France need to win by 3 or more after falling 2-0 to Ukraine in the first leg.

Some other dudes named CR7 and ZLATAN! are playing each other. But really nobody cares about them.

Dante might play for Brazil against Chile. It will be epic. Or dull. Probably both simultaneously in a cosmic event rivaling the Big Bang in significance.

Javi Martinez is still with Spain and he's not broken yet, so that's a plus.

Jogi Low will do something silly because he's Jogi Low and because it's a friendly against England, the English will somehow find a way to England this match for Germany. Some Bayern Munich players might play, but even money has them taking a nap.

Also, the USA plays Austria. David Alaba vs. Jermaine Jones. This is either going to be hilarious or Alaba will be returning to us in a coffin. Probably the former.

Also, Egypt has to overcome a 6-1 deficit to Ghana. It's 1-0 at halftime. I think they can do it.
