If Romania lose all my bets are screwed this weekend. I've got them in a couple of Win acca's and win or draw long acca's.

Thought they were unlucky against France and looked OK against the Swiss. Both teams need to win so should be an exciting encounter but think and hope Romania are the better side.

I will be watching this rather than France v Swiss because games like this where both sides can qualify tend to be a better watch (but they're not always).

As far as I know, Romania are the stronger side, I could imagine them winning the game. I wouldn't rule out Albania winning though. There could be late goals if one side is chasing the game (realistically both need to win).

Yeah also watching this one. Got my free ladbrokes 50 pound bet on romania, although i've laid them for 50 on the exchange so it doesn't really matter who wins in that respect. Romania have been a bit unlucky so far i think.

spies v thieves. Can't see either of them, grounds full really.

Saw for the first time this afternoon cat 4 tickets for Iceland v Austria on wednesday (50 euros). However when i clicked on to buy them, it came back unavailable. Can still get cat 1,2, and 3 though, but 105-145 is too much with the travelling on top. Would share the travelling costs if anyone else is up for going to a game though.

Was looking online for tickets to the Copa America final (Mrs CT has ideas that after last night Chile will be at the final and odds on to win). Cheapest I could see were about $550 !!!! I think most are "resale tickets" so they may get cheaper if Chile do get to the final, they not having so many immigrants than sat Colombia or Mexico...

Romania opened the stronger, but Albania took over and had the better chances, let down by Tommy Langley style finishing - until their goal before half time. The goal should make for an entertaining second half.

Only two 3rd place teams can't make it through. Haven't looked at the rest yet but NI can afford a 3 goal defeat to Germany and still be better placed than Albania due to goals scored.

Think it going to be difficult for Alabnia to qualify on 3 points with a goal difference of scored 1 against 3

Bet365 have Albania at 2.25 to qualify and 1.57 not to qualify ... in my experience you can normally reckon bookies odds to be about right for this sort of thing, it's their job to work out the probabilities.

Driving is just 1 hour - the game is at the NY Giants stadium.
Mrs CT is Chilean, and happy to be so today :D
Problem is that the $550 tickets are probably nose-bleeders. Would be considerably more to get anything decent I reckon.

Wycombe Eagle#2
19-06-2016, 09:40 PM
So group B already had two teams in 3 points with 0 goal difference so Wales and Slovakia would both need to loss by 3 goals because of their goals scored so highly unlikely they'll have a worst record than Albania.

Group C already explained with NI and although Germany are capable of taking anyone apart I wouldn't bet on an already qualified German side to tonk a dogged NI team.

Group D there's a ray of hope. Spain and Croatia already on more than Albania. But Czech Vs Turkey with the Czechs on one point and Turkey on one. A draw is no good for either and would see them fall short of Albania. A Czech win rules Albania out. But just a one goal victory for Turkey would out Albania above them. A two goal victory for Turkey which is what they'll need to go for to stand any slim chance will put them above Albania.

Grouo E there's another chance for them but any win for Sweden or ROI would see them get to 4 points. Sweden would need to beat Belgium by 4 goals for Belgium to finish below Albania. This group all depends on Belgium and Italy two sides already qualified bothering to turn up.

Finally Group F is Albania's best chance with less permutations. It see's Hungary on 4 Iceland and Portugal on 2 and Austria on 1. Albania need Hungary to beat Portugal. Regardless of the other game then Albania would finish above the 3rd place team in this group. If Hungary don't beat Portgual then Hungary, Portgual and no matter what result in the other group would leave 3 better teams than Albania.

Overall Albania need a hell of a lot to go for them so those odd wouldn't tempt me one little bit. In fact I think the better value is them not to qualify.

Yeah 4 points should get you through, whereas 3 is a gamble. Portugals group looks like maybe will be one of the 2 groups where 3rd place will miss out. Its a good format for keeping things interesting.

So was I. You're right, there was a cracking atmosphere in the ground thanks to the Albanians although the Romanians still made a noise considering how few of them there were.
What part of the ground were you in? We were in the "Green" (Gate V Block 131) stand about level with the penalty spot where Albania scored and at the Romanian end of the ground.
The Albanians were a great bunch. We spoke with a few who'd come from Switzerland. I wouldn't have minded getting one of those hats as a souvenir!

One or two English flags inside the ground including Bolton, Luton Town, Nottingham Forest, Chesterfield, Lincoln City to name but a few.
On the way home at about half past midnight two England fans from Fleet with a small suitcase got on my bus and seemed a bit lost. They were heading to some hotel out in the middle of nowhere. I got off the bus 5 minutes later but still managed to bore them with the story of my day out at Wembley a couple of weeks ago! :D
