Summary: WC Qualification in Europe

A tale of the tape

England 2-0 Lithuania

How is Jermain Defoe so wee? Anyway, this game took place after the tragedy at Westminister. This was the minute's silence that the English do well

I'm not going to spend too much time on this game, but basically, Southgate brought back Jermaine Defoe from the wilderness into the national side. The boy in front of Defoe is Bradley Lowrey, a five-year-old with terminal cancer. Defoe is his favourite player and they seem to have a bond. Joe Hart was named captain of the match, but he allowed Defoe to lead the country out

The game was so-so. Lithuania came to gum up the works, I wasn't mad. Lallana did well

What was encouraging about this England side was that Southgate actually picked players based on form, not team. So to see players from Sunderland, Burnley, Middlesborough on the NT was nice

Defoe seemed to be a popular guy on the team. Southgate said some interesting things (telling England to get off the island in the week that Theresa May triggers Brexit is especially ironic. But eh)

Luxemberg 1- 3 France

Luxemberg did better than I thought, tbh

"I know when that hotline bling..."

Back of the net!

Azerbaijan 1- 4 Germany

How short is no 18? How ill does that no. 9 look?

Why is Özil there on the NT when he's supposedly ill?

Schurle got a brace. Mueller finished up

No, seriously, what's with him?

Northern Ireland 2- 0 Norway

I expected Norway to put up more of a fight, tbh

But it's nice seeing the home nations doing well. Hope your reunfication goes well, NI. Run away, run away from Brexit

Scotland 1- 0 Slovenia

Chris Martin scored the only goal in the game! The Scots head coach has been under pressure, and Scotland had to win. I have things to say about Chris Martin, but you know what? I'mma let it cook

I really thought Slovenia would have tied. They are a strong team in this group

OP: Done! Cheers, jeers, etc., you know the drill! Nice to be back in my bed, with working internet!
