With a win Norway claim their group today in a match vs Italy, while they take second with a draw. In the event of a Norway loss, they still advance as long as Israel does not win by a scoreline of greater 7 goals in its match against England.

Tomorrow, Spain and Netherlands challenge for the title in their group, while Germany and Russia do something else. It might be playing soccer, I'll have to check.

Elsewhere in the world, other nations are attempting to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. We could talk about that too. We should point and laugh when they fail. Just kidding. Be nice. Except to England.
