October 10 2017 will be a day to remember for countries as many made and drop out of the FIFA world cup in a dramatic fashion. From Netherlands to Chile to USA all out of next year event. Watford still have the opportunity having players at the world cup.
Andre Carrillo’s Peru will fancy a chance to make it to the world cup when they face New Zealand in the play off. Orestis Karnezis and his ankle brace also have the opportunity to make it to Russia as Greece qualify for a place in the play off. However, they will have to face one of the heavy weight in Italy, Croatia, Denmark and Switzerland as they are not seeded. Their opponent is one of these four teams but has not been determined yet.
Netherlands needed seven unreplied goals to make it to the play off but we’re on lying able to get two. This means the likes of Daryl Janmaat and Arjen Robben will miss out of the tournament that they have finished in the top three twice in the last two editions. This also signaled the end of the ageing set that have the likes of Robben, Van Persie and Snerdjier and the beginning of a new cycle that is supposed to be headed by Mephis Depay and David Klasssen.
The drama of the last day of qualifier was more intense in South America when it was looking like Messi miss and Argentina were going to miss out of the world cup. As the match across four centre progresses, it was heading in a way that either Chile, Peru or Colombia could miss out of the tournament next section. It eventually happened that it was Chile, two-time defending champion of the Copa America that will miss out after losing 3-0 to Brazil, as predicted by Stan james free bet. From sitting third on the log to finishing sixth eventually on the table. But there was better news for Carrillo, whose Peru drew 1-1 with Colombia in Lima to seal a play-off with New Zealand next month.
Karnezis’s Greece surprised no one by making the European play-offs with a comfortable 4-0 win over minnows Gibraltar, who have still lost all of their 18 qualifying matches. Greece made it to the last 1st of last world cup in Brazil and will be hoping to make it three World Cup on a bounce if they can navigate through the playoff.
