    A: interesting one, might be close but i would expect Serbia and Croatia to battle it out
    B: Italy or the Czechs
    C: Ze Germans
    D: Holland surely
    E: Between Norway and the Swiss
    F:Ruski or Portugal
    G:This will be tighter than a flys arse!
    H:Should be England all the way!
    I: Unlucky frogs getting the World and Euro champs! Spain!

    the Euro qualifying is the toughest to get through next to South America but I know what people feel when they say it is a waste of time as the usual (Germany, Spain, England, italy etc) always get through but you never know, shocks are known to happen........USA 94 with no England!!!!

    Or even 2002 without the Dutch.

    In my mind, Europe and South America have the toughest qualifications.

    With Australia, they have a better chance to qualify automatically since they joined Asia after the 2006 FIFA World Cup rather than winning the Oceania qualifying tournament and then had to go to a two-legged Inter-Confederation play-off with either a team from CONMEBOL South America or even UEFA Europe like the Socceroos used to do while they were members of OFC.

    Don't forget, the OFC has no direct route to the World Cup.

    New Zealand did it for the 1982 and 2010 World Cup appearances. They have to do it again.

    You missed Group F.

    In a prediction contest I'm running on BigSoccer, Cayman Islands has an average of 1.59 points and St. Lucia has an average of 0.95 points so I'm surprised you predicted both of those countries second. I'm also surprised you predicted Guyana to finish last. Here are my predictions:

    El Salvador: 18
    Suriname: 10
    Dominican Republic: 7
    Cayman Islands: 0

    Trinidad and Tobago: 18
    Guyana: 10
    Barbados: 5
    Bermuda: 1

    Panama: 12
    Dominica: 2
    Nicaragua: 2

    Canada: 18
    St. Kitts and Nevis: 8
    Puerto Rico: 8
    St. Lucia: 0

    Guatemala: 16
    Grenada: 13
    St. Vincent and the Grenadines: 2
    Belize: 2

    Haiti: 14 (wins group on goal differential)
    Antigua and Barbuda: 14
    Curacao: 6
    U.S. Virgin Islands: 0

    Third Round Qualifying Stage

    Group Matchday FT Scores: September 2, 2011

    Group A
    China edged Singapore 2-1 thanks to a Zheng Zhi penalty and a Yu Hai strike 4 minutes apart in the second half cancelling Aleksandar Duric's first half tally.

    Hasan Mahmoud and Abdullah Allah Deeb scored to give Jordan a 2-0 win over Iraq.

    China 2-1 Singapore

    Iraq 0-2 Jordan

    Group B
    Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal supporters will like to see Park Chu-Young in action.

    The Gunners' latest signing bagged a hat trick as former 2002 Top 4 finisher South Korea (Korea Republic) thrashed Lebanon 6-0.

    Sunderland's Steve Bruce is also pleased with his Korean signing as Ji Dong-Won bagged a brace.

    United Arab Emirates 2-3 Kuwait

    Group C
    The reigning AFC Asian Cup champions Japan put somemore smiles to Japanese soccer in 2011 after former Nagoya Grampus Eight center half Maya Yoshida scored in the 94th minute to help the Blue Samurai edged North Korea (Korea DPR) 1-0 in Saitama.

    Uzbekistan edged reinstated Tajikistan 1-0.

    Group D
    Tabata will be more relieved.

    Despite dominating throughout the match inside Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium, Australia only edged a injury-raging, but gritty Thailand 2-1.

    Teerasil Dangda gave the War Elephants a shock 1-0 lead in the 15th minute.

    However, Josh Kennedy got the Socceroos on the board with his 58th minute equalizer to make it 1-1.

    And former Brisbane Roar and Sydney FC player Alex Brosque scored the winner with 4 minutes to go to the delight of coach Holger Osieck.

    Australia will get a test on the road as they take on Frank Rijkaard and Saudi Arabia on Tuesday.

    Australia 2-1 Thailand

    Oman 0-0 Saudi Arabia

    Group E
    Javad Nekonam's double sees Iran throttled Indonesia 3-0.

    Iran 3-0 Indonesia

    Bahrain 0-0 Qatar
